Walk of Fame: Scarlett Johansson Stunning In Preen

Who: Scarlett Johansson

Where: Receiving her Hollywood Walk of Fame star in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A black and white printed top and skirt from Preen’s autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with red peep-toe heels and cat-eye sunglasses

Verdict: OK, I really don’t get Scarlett, on her recent promo tour for Marvel’s The Avengers she didn’t really wow me and I have to admit kind of bored me a little, and then she turns up in this amazing outfit that I love.

Everything from the mix-match daisy print top paired with a checkered pencil skirt, to her amazing retro hairstyle and her foxy red shoes, this is one hot look. It begs the question why didn’t she bring this umph on her promo tour?

Avengers Assemble: Cobie Smulders Vibrant In Red

Who: Actress Cobie Smulders

Where: At the London premiere of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble held at the Vue Cinema Westfield London

Wearing: A long-sleeve ruby red silk georgette and organza Alexandra Vidal gown with keyhole detailing and a gorgeous textured mermaid hemline from the autumn/winter 2012 collection. Completing her look is a square gold minaudière and a simple thin headband.

Verdict: Thanks to Ilaria Urbinati, who styled Cobie, for introducing me to the wonders that is New York designer Alexandra Vidal who was a finalist on Project Runway in 2004, a designer I will certainly be looking out for in the future if this gown is anything to go by – as it is simply divine.

As with the Hollywood premiere Cobie really has pipped Scarlett Johansson as the best dressed as she really shines in this gorgeous dramatic gown, granted I would have loved the red carpet to have been black so it really stood out, but that is just me being extra picky.

This is one exquisite look, and what I love most is how different it is from her sexy Donna Karan dress she wore to the world premiere, this gown has a more demure feel about it, and it is nice to see the return of the headband after seeing it so much over the award season.

Who gets your best dressed – Cobie or Scarlett?

Avengers Assemble: Scarlett Johansson In Prada

Who: Actress Scarlett Johansson

Where: At the premiere of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble held at the Vue Cinema Westfield in London

Wearing: A strapless blue and black peplum Prada dress from the spring/summer 2012 collection, featuring red and blue floral details on the black bodice and a lace overlay on the skirt, teamed with red Christian Louboutin heels and a hair braid.

Verdict: There is something not connecting with me on this look, I like the peplum silhouette on her, I love the floral embroidered bodice, I am however not loving the lace overlay on the skirt. It feels like this dress was once three different looks and she couldn’t decide which one she prefered so they took the bodice, the peplum and the lace skirt and made it into one dress, it just doesn’t work for me.

If however the dress was just black with the red floral bodice it would have been stunning especially teamed with those fab red shoes.

What do you think – do you like this look?

The Avengers: Cobie Smulders In Donna Karan

Who: Actress Cobie Smulders

Where: At the premiere of Marvel’s The Avengers held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A slightly modified black and bronze Donna Karan gown from the spring/summer 2012 collection, full of intricate embroidered detailing and a plunging neckline, teamed with a dark clutch and amber earrings

Verdict: Wow, Scarlett Johansson might be the lead in the film but Cobie Smulders, who I have to admit I had never heard off, really did put herself on the map last night with this uber-sexy Donna Karan gown. Everything from her cool name, come on I can’t be the only one wishing my surname was Smulders, to her gorgeous wavy locks, and that incredible patchwork gown – this is one hot look and she looks fabulous.

Styled by Ilaria Urbinati, who also looks after Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrev, I can’t wait to see what other looks she pulls for Cobie on the Avengers promo tour.
