WHO: Claire Holt
WHERE & WHEN: CW, CBS and Showtime 2013 Summer TCA Party on July 29, 2013.
WEARING: Rebecca Minkoff

VERDICT: Claire added a burst of bright color to the dark gold carpet last night for the annual CW, CBS, and Showtime TCA party in her Rebecca Minkoff panel bustier dress. The 25-year-old Australian star of the upcoming TVD-sequel “The Originals” wore the “Clara” curve-hugging black dress in Raspberry with a coral center panel of vibrant abstract leopard prints in shades of blue and offset by white from the Spring/Summer 2013 collection. | continue reading..

WHERE & WHEN: “2 Guns” New York City on July 29, 2013.
WEARING: Dior Homme

MY VERDICT: Ooh-la-la! James looked incredible on the red carpet last night for the New York premiere of his new movie “2 Guns” wearing a Dior Homme grey wool Prince of Wales check suit with a crisp white cotton button down shirt and a black silk tie.

The print is bold without being too in-your-face, the styling was so on-point, and I loved the cut on him. There was a bit of retro 1960s flair that I’m not sure was intentional, but was very much appreciated.

James played with contrast by adding a black and white gingham silk pocket square before finishing with leather lace up shoes.

WHO: Paula Patton
WHERE & WHEN: “2 Guns” New York City on July 29, 2013.
WEARING: Basil Soda

MY VERDICT: If Paula was hoping for a ‘va-va-voom’ moment on the red carpet last night for the New York premiere of “2 Guns”, well, she certainly got it. The 37-year-old actress was nearly busting out of her black and white printed Basil Soda Fall 2013 gown, which featured a plunging v-neck that barely contained her ample chest.

Side boob is one thing, but cleavage featuring ‘under-boob’ might be pushing the envelope too much. I wish Paula had gotten the neckline altered to close up a bit as the dramatic (and high) front slit and cutout open back certainly held their own.

A swept up and slightly curled ponytail, complimenting makeup, black and white pumps, shimmering diamond jewels, and a bright yellow nail varnish completed Paula’s look. She can totally pull off that polish.

WHO: Anna Faris
WHERE & WHEN: 2013 Summer Television Critics Association Tour: CBS “Mom” Panel on July 29, 2013.
WEARING: Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet

MY VERDICT: Anna promoted her new CBS comedy “Mom” at the press conference panel held during the Summer TCA tour earlier today while donned in a cool monochrome graphic dress and matching heels. The 36-year-old selected a Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet “Monaco” crochet peplum sleeveless dress with a bold black and white zig-zag pattern all over. This fun design comes from Bendet’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

There isn’t usually a photocall with this event, so I always like it when the actor is wearing something vivid enough that it pops even while they’re sitting down–and I think Anna nailed it. | continue reading..

WHO: Lizzy Caplan
WHERE & WHEN: CW, CBS and Showtime 2013 Summer TCA Party on July 29, 2013.
WEARING: J. Mendel dress, Brian Atwood shoes & a Jimmy Choo clutch.

MY VERDICT: Lizzy looked fabulous in vibrant coral when she hit the dark gold carpet for the annual CW, CBS and Showtime 2013 Summer TCA bash in a J. Mendel sheath dress. The “Masters of Sex” actress selected the crewneck pencil dress from the Resort 2014 collection with a sassy little cutout beneath the bust that matched illusion piping traveling the arm to hem.

I love the way this was styled with two-toned metallic accents! | continue reading..

WHO: Alexandra Daddario
WHERE & WHEN: “Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters” Hamptons Premiere on July 28, 2013.
WEARING: Diane von Furstenberg dress, Jimmy Choo shoes

MY VERDICT: Alexandra shimmered her way into UA Southampton Cinemas last night for the Hamptons premiere of “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”, the second film in the series based on the Rick Riordan adventure book series. The 27-year-old actress wore a pretty Diane von Furstenberg Pre-Fall 2013 “Zarah” beaded black lace long sleeve dress with a raisin under-layer.

I can be fickle with booties and dresses because sometimes they can make or break a look, but having said that–I love Alexandra’s Jimmy Choo black suede and lace “Maylen” slingbacks. | continue reading..

WHO: Jenna Ushkowitz
WHERE & WHEN: Dizzy Feet Foundation’s 3rd Annual Celebration Of Dance Gala on July 27, 2013.
WEARING: Sarah Janks

MY VERDICT: Jenna made quite the ethereal entrance on the red carpet at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion last night for the Celebration of Dance gala hosted by the Dizzy Feet Foundation in Los Angeles. The 27-year-old “Glee” actress looked beautiful in a soft dove grey one-of-a-kind chiffon gown by Sarah Janks, which featured a plunging v-neck, a bow-adorned silver beaded belt, and a striking cutout back design with mesh illusion lining.

A cloudy grey can often appear gloomy or wash someone out, but Jenna was simply glowing as the pale shade was brightened thanks to her sun-kissed complexion. An elegant braided chignon to show off her diamond earrings, charcoal shimmering smoky eyes, diamond rings, and a crystal embellished minaudiére helped Jenna completed her look.

WHERE & WHEN: “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” Mall of America Cast Meet & Greet on July 28, 2013.
WEARING: Rachel Zoe Collection jacket and dress, B Brian Atwood shoes & ELAHN jewelry.

MY VERDICT: Lily is quickly becoming one of my favorite ladies to watch out for! For a special cast Q&A panel and autograph signing with her “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” costars Kevin Zegers and Jamie Campbell Bower at the Mall of America yesterday in Minnesota, Lily wore a cute Rachel Zoe Collection Pre-Fall 2013 silk-chiffon grey and black “Amy” long sleeve animal printed dress with a tiered skirt and paired it with a skinny black leather belt and matching “Willa” biker jacket. | continue reading..

WHO: Nina Dobrev
WHERE & WHEN: 6th Annual Power Of Youth Event on July 27, 2013.
WEARING: Versus Versace dress, Christian Loubutin shoes, an Amanda Pearl clutch & Susan Foster jewelry.

MY VERDICT: It’s only been a week since Nina rocked Comic-Con with two fabulous outfits, but “The Vampire Diaries” star was back to keep it ultra-stylish this weekend on the green carpet this for Variety’s annual Power of Youth event in Los Angeles.

Nina wore a bright red Versus Versace Fall 2013 short sleeve crewneck breezy dress that was toughened up thanks to split open shoulder detail enriched with gold oversize safety pin embellishments. | continue reading..
