Tonight’s Critics Choice Awards bring us one step closer to the climax of awards season for film, but this particular ceremony includes stars of both the big screen & small screen to unite & celebrate their talent, accomplishments, & of course fashion! There were so many trends of the night, continuing the glitz that we saw last weekend at the Golden Globe Awards, including dramatic metallic gown, classic black dresses with cut-outs, neutral / champagne tones, midi-length designs, variations on the naked dress, bold pops of color, & multicolored dresses.
Fantastic 4 actress Kate Mara is an in-demand actress & surely a Style Darling to watch. The actress has been having one stylish summer, as spokesmodel for MaxMara & promoting the new summer blockbuster. She looks confident & sleek in mini dresses, A-line frocks, ankle strap sandals, pointy toe pumps, & a toussled pixie ‘do.
Kate Mara hit the MaxMara 2015 Women In Film event in a burgundy jumpsuit by MaxMara with strappy sandals & a black clutch. Then, for an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Kate was edgy in a black leather detailed David Koma mini dress with Jimmy Choo pointy toe pumps. She went for a black leather fit & flare dress by Valentino with black ankle strap sandals at the New York premiere of Fantastic 4. For a ladylike look, Kate wore a floral black & white Giambattista Valli mini dress with white Sophia Webster pointy toe pumps & an Emm Kuo clutch for an appearance on Live! With Kelly & Michael. At Comic Con, Kate dressed up in a jeweled gunmetal mini dress with by Valentino black ankle strap sandals.
For the Women In Film 2015 Crystal + Lucy Awards red carpet, Kate in a little black fit & flare dress by Max Mara with leopard print sequin pointy toe pumps. In Miami, Kate looked sweet a little white dress by J. Mendel with black detailing & black ankle strap sandals. Then, she switched it up for a military-inspired lace blouse by Sandro & Louis Vuitton mini skirt with jeweled yellow pumps at an Atlanta screening of Fantastic 4. During a press junket appearance in New York City, Kate dazzled in a pink tweed mini dress by Dior with red pointy toe wedges. Again in Dior, Kate picked in a red vest by the brand & cream shorts with nude pointy toe pumps at an Apple store event. Lastly, Kate kept it minimalist in a white A-line mini dress with red pointy toe wedges.
While Kate looks more voluptuous than most models walking the catwalk, she’s a healthy size 4 & responds to nay-sayers about her shape with the following: “The things that they’re rejecting are things that I can’t change. I can’t change my bra size. They’re natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can’t change some things.” The Sports Illustrated beauty is breath-taking in sleek separates looks, flirty swimwear shots, & evening couture.
In a behind-the-scenes look at the model strutting her stuff in Uruguay, Kate shares her tips for having the ultimately stylish summer, including how having the right sunglasses & some comfy sandals can make or break your vacation! The resemblance to Marilyn Monroe in uncanny, but it’s really gorgeous to see the celebrated hairstyles of vintage Hollywood starlets like Monroe teased in contrast to contemporary fashion.
So this isn’t my typical gallery… Funny lady Leslie Mann, best known for her roles in Knocked Up & The Change-Up, has been hitting red carpets under the radar for quite some time now. However, the actress (& wife to director Judd Apatow) is climbing the style ranks, especially after several appearances during Paris Fashion Week. I put together a little collection of some of her best looks from recent events & a few years ago. The svelte blonde turned 40 years old this year, but is looking better than ever with the classic elegance of a veteran red carpet regular. My favorite look is her Armani Prive LBD! Kudos to Leslie Mann! Happy Styling!
At this weekend’s Teen Choice Awards, young Hollywood came out in full force style! Some of these ladies in line are going to be the next Gwyneth Paltrows, Julianne Moores, & Kate Hudsons of the red carpet. This is evident in their choice of styling, but let’s get down to who’s wearing who! First up is Twlight star Ashley Greene who sticks to the pencil dress trend in a color-blocked design by Givenchy. Zoe Saldana goes metallic in a belted Lanvin frock with shoes by the late great Alexander McQueen. The Vampire Diaires leading lady, Nina Dobrev, was probably my favorite in this figure flattering D&G dress with a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch. Canadian singer Avril Lavigne does some shameless advertising for her brand, Abbey Dawn in a chic LBD & patterned peep toes. However, it is a nice chang eof pace for the usual punky blonde. The svelte star of CW’s Nikita, Maggie Q, went all white in a two-piece Max Mara look with black & white pumps- very Mad Men looking, eh?
Next, Lucy Hale took a risk in this sparkling Cengiz Abazoğlu mini dress with Giuseppe Zanotti ankle strap platforms. It-girl of the moment, Emma Stone, juggled her press tour for The Help, by showing up to the ceremony in a Christian Dior shift dress with jewelry by Irene Neuwirth. Current In Style Makeover cover girl, Rachel Bilson, looked ultra-femme in a ruffled Chloe dress with Brian Atwood studded ankle booties. Country crooner, Taylor Swift, channelled Marilyn Monroe in a Rafael Cennamo LWD halter & of course, donned Neil Lane diamonds & bowed silver peep toe pumps. Last, but not least is Selena Gomez, looking all grown up in an asymmetrical Erin Fetherston minidress & strappy Brian Atwood sandals.
