Who: Actress Rose Byrne
Where: At the 2014 Women in Film cocktail party hosted by Max Mara honouring Rose Byrne with the ‘Max Mara Face of the Future’ award held at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California
Wearing: A midnight blue sequinned V-neck Max Mara cocktail dress, teamed with dual-tone black and silver, toe-cap heels. matching navy blue nails and a messy waves in her hair
Verdict: As the focus of the party, Rose really did shimmer in this eye-catching sequinned dress. It is very her, signature Max Mara, and perfect for a cocktail party, but I have to be honest I kind of wish she had worn different heels, maybe something strappy, and worn a statement piece of bling like a diamond-encrusted bracelet. I adore the dress I just wish the styling had been a little different.
The party also attracted some of Hollywood’s hottest stars including Christina Hendricks, Erin Wasson, Amanda Stenberg, Darby Stanchfield, Sophia Bush, Bella Heathcote and Ahna O’Reilly, who of course all looked incredible wearing either Max Mara or Sportmax looks – but the young actress that really shined for me had to be Kiernan Shipka.
Kiernan has really been impressing of late, she really does love fashion and takes risks that really pay off, and I loved her edgy-yet-feminine look at the cocktail party. Pairing a perfectly tailored white silk Max Mara top with a beaded neckline with a fun and edgy Max Mara pleated leather skirt – should a great monochrome look made exquisite with the pop of yellow from her Christian Louboutin studded bag.
