British Fashion Awards: Olivia Palermo in Matthew Williamson

Socialite Olivia Palermo attended the 2011 British Fashion Awards a couple of days ago at the Savoy Hotel in London….

Olivia chose a wool-crepe dress with beaded, sequin and feather apliqués from the Matthew Williamson Fall 2011 Collection and accessorized with a Charlotte Olympia clutch and Topshop flame mesh ankle boots.

I know many of you will disagree, but I think this is a great dress!  And I think Olivia looks very pretty!  This dress is very different, yes.  But it looks so good on her!  It is fun and bold and exciting, yet still flattering to her figure.  The only thing I am unsure of is her choice of shoe.  Because there is so much going on with the dress, I think a more simple shoe might’ve looked better.  But even still, I think Olivia looks gorgeous!  (Notice her nails are polished, too!  Makes me happy!)

What do you think?  How do you feel about Olivia in this Matthew Williamson dress?  Love it?  Loathe it?

Film Independent Spirit Awards Nominations: Kate Beckinsale in Tadashi Shoji

Kate Beckinsale attended a press conference yesterday at The London Hotel in West Hollywood to announce the nominations for the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards….

Kate chose a white and nude tulle cocktail dress from the Tadashi Shoji Spring 2012 Collection and paired it with a pair of nude Brian Atwood platform pumps.  Long, shiny locks completed her look. 

I think Kate looks fantastic in this Tadashi Shoji dress!  I pretty much love everything about it!  I love the sytle and cut and the tulle and the nude/white combo…it is so feminine and lovely!  I would love to have this dress for myself!  😉

And on top of the fact that this dress is fab, Kate has a killer figure and gorgeous hair!  What a babe!  She would probably look pretty darn good in anything….

What do you think?  Do you like Kate in this white and nude tulle Tadashi dress?  Yay or nay?

‘Puss in Boot’ Sydney Premiere: Salma Hayek in Bottega Veneta

Salma Hayek attended yet another premiere for ‘Puss in Boots’…this time in Sydney…

Salma has had some serious up’s and down’s on the red carpet lately.  And she has potential to be GREAT on the red carpet every.single.time.   She has been off her game recently…not sure why.  For the Sydney premiere of PIB Salma chose a dress and belt from the Bottega Veneta Cruise 2012 Collection and a pair of platform YSL round toe pumps. 

I don’t really have much to say about this.  I don’t hate it, yet I don’t really like it.  I think the color is a bit drab, and Salma’s hair and makeup aren’t really doing anything for me, either.  Overall, I feel sorta ‘blah’ about this.

What do you think?  Do you like Salma in this Bottega Veneta dress?  Yay or nay?  Love or loathe?

Gotham Independent Film Awards: Charlize Theron in Gucci

Charlize Theron hit the red carpet at the 21st Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City a couple of days ago….

Charlize chose a gorgeous dress from the Gucci Spring 2012 RTW Collection.  Her beautiful Gucci features a white halter-style top with a plunging neckline, metallic waistband and a pleated, tiered skirt.  The actress accessorized with a cute black clutch, strappy gold sandals, a black headband and a thin, gold wrap-around necklace.

I am literally in love with this dress.   Seriously.  I adore it.  And I think Charlize looks fantastic.  She is wearing this dress to complete perfection.   I only have one, teeny-tiny complaint:  her hair.  Not a fan of the hair all pulled back with a thin headband.  Her headband reminds me of something you would wear to the gym.  But, other than that single little detail, I freaking love this!  Gorgeous dress on a gorgeous lady!  🙂

What do you think?   Do you like Charlize in this Gucci dress?  Yay or nay?

Leather Panel Jeans: Alessandra Ambrosio in Siwy Mick

Victorias Secret model (and super hot mom!) Alessandra Ambrosio was out and about in New York City a couple of days ago….

 

Alessandra chose a pair of black leather panel jeans by Siwy Mick and paired ’em with a sweet pair of shades, some fur and some super-cute sneakers for a casual day in the city with her daughter.   And I think she looks great!  This is definitely not a look I myself could pull off, but Alessandra looks great!  She looks casual, cool and very chic!

What do you think?  Do you like Alessandra in this pair of Siwy Mick leather panel jeans?  Yay or nay?

Gaga’s Workshop: Blake Lively in Elie Saab

Blake Lively attended Barneys New York Celebration Launch of Gaga’s Workshop at Barneys in New York City last week….

The lovely ‘Gossip Girl’ actress (who has had a slew of unfortunate red carpet looks recently) chose a bright lapis-blue suit that features lace detailing at the shoulders and a deep, plunging neckline from the Elie Saab Spring 2012 Collection.  Blake paired her suit with Christian Louboutin pumps and Lorraine Schwartz earrings. 

While I am not over-the-top in love with this outfit, I do think it is a nice change of pace for the long-legged actress.  I like the fact that she didn’t wear something super-short….although she does have very nice legs.   I think this blue suit is very feminine and very pretty-the color looks great on Blake and the lace detail on the shoulders adds just the right amount of sweetness, while the plunging neckline is all sexy

I am not crazy about Blake’ s hair, though.  I think her hair would’ve looked nice worn all the way down, and straightened with a flat-iron.  Just a thought…..

What do you think?  Do you like Blake in the lapis-blue Elie Saab suit?  Love or loathe?
