Cover Loving: ELLE US Hollywood Issue – Reese, Penélope, Melissa & Shailene

ELLE-US-Nov-pcruz-2

American ELLE’s Hollywood issue is one of my favourite magazines to pick up as I love the mix of actresses they go for – and this year is no exception with Reese Witherspoon, Penélope Cruz, Shailene Woodley, and Melissa McCarthy all gracing the cover.

My favourite cover this year is a difficult choice – between Penélope Cruz, who looks stunning wearing a cashmere sweater by The Row and Chopard jewellery – I love how they’ve kept her make-up to a minimal to show off her adorable freckles, and Shailene Woodley, even though this cover looks set for summer rather than autumn wearing Calvin Klein Swimwear there is something different about the pose that makes it stand out.

Reese Witherspoon’s cover is probably the most predictable, but nevertheless she still looks stunning in a sexy Versace number. The cover I think I was most disappointed with was Melissa McCarthy styled in an oversized Marina Rinaldi coat with OTT eighties hair – I can only imagine how much hairspray they used.

Online there also seems to be another two covers featuring Marion Cotillard working the crop top trend in Dior, and British actress Naomie Harris looking absolutely gorgeous in a Calvin Klein Collection wrap halter top and skirt, very similar to the one that Rose Byrne wore to the Primetime Emmys.

Considering this is a November cover there is a lot of skin on show – especially with the main fashion tagline being ‘the perfect coat shape’. It is hard to decide on my favourite but I think it has to be Penélope Cruz as she just looks gorgeous and is really the only one, except for Melissa wearing anything autumn related.

Which cover is your favourite? Also do you think these covers seem more appropriate for spring/summer than November?

Save the Children Gala: Jennifer Garner In Calvin Klein

Calvin-klein-jennifer-garner

Who: Jennifer Garner

Where: At the first-ever Save the Children benefit Gala held at Cipriani in New York

Wearing: A knee-length black dress by Calvin Klein with pockets and spaghetti straps, teamed with black heels, a black clutch and diamond earrings and bracelet

Verdict: This look is so effortless for Jennifer. The dress is chic, the accessories are perfect, and she is wearing just the right amount of sparkles – I love this look.

There isn’t anything special about this look, there is no pop of colour, she hasn’t even done anything amazing with her hair, but you know it just works – she really does look elegant and natural and I adore her make-up.

The event hosted by Jenna Bush Hager, honoured not only the Alias actress with the Advocate Award for her support for Save the Children but also former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who looked amazing in bubblegum-pink number.

Star Trek Into Darkness: Zoe Saldana In Calvin Klein

Who: Actress Zoe Saldana

Where: At the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ photocall held at the China Club in Berlin, Germany

Wearing: A grey Calvin Klein skirt and crop top featuring criss-cross buckle straps to the back, both from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Tahi’ sandals

Verdict: I know everyone is excited about the Great Gatsby promo tour to begin, I am as well, but I am so pleased to see Zoe Saldana on the red carpet trail for the up-coming Star Trek movie as she always brings something a little different.

This look is sexy, chic and edgy all at the same time, which is a pretty hard to do. I love the sophisticated vibe of the pleated wool skirt, the colour, the length and the large pleats are perfection. Whereas most celebrities would have probably paired with a white shirt and completed the sophisticated vibe, I love that Zoe added a sexy touch by teaming with a matching crop top, which with her incredible figure looked amazing.

So we’ve had chic and sexy and then Zoe turns around and gives us a whole lot of edge with those incredible criss-cross buckle straps, I seriously wish I had the figure to pull this look off.

Finishing up her incredible look are a great pair of heels, these nude Jimmy Choo sandals with their flower inspired perforated detailing are hot.

With a look like this for a photocall I can’t wait to see her premiere look!!!

Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Chastain In Calvin Klein Collection

jessica-chastain-calvin-klein

Who: Jessica Chastain, who picked up the award for Best Actress in a Drama for her role in ‘Zero Dark Thirty’

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A seaform silk crepe custom Calvin Klein Collection halter dress, teamed with Harry Winston diamonds

Verdict: This dress was not what I was expecting from Jessica Chastain, I was expecting something a little more edgy, instead this gown has an ethereal quality to it that I don’t think translated well.

I look at it and I want to love it, and in part I do, the colour especially is perfection against her skintone and her fiery coloured hair, and I loved the backless style of the gown, I just felt it wasn’t fitted very well.

Considering this was a custom gown it just looked like the bodice was a little big and the silhouette of the gown was unflattering it really needed to be nipped in more at her waist – she has a great figure that isn’t being shown off in this dress.

What did totally work were her jewels as she was dripping in Harry Winston diamonds worth $3 million – that cuff is gorgeous.

Do you rate Jessica’s look?
