Who: Teen Wolf star Holland Roden
Where: At the 2013 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party in Los Angeles
Wearing: A purple Emporio Armani double-breasted blazer dress with a notch lapel, teamed with jewellery from David Webb and Effy, and finished off with Rupert Sanderson heels
Verdict: Holland Roden has really been surprising me of late on the red carpet, first we had that gorgeous Naeem Khan look at the MTV VMAs featuring an open ballskirt over cigarette pants, then there was the sexy Georges Chakra Couture dress wore to a pre-Emmy party, and now we have this striking double-breasted blazer dress.
I love red hair teamed with purple and this dress is sexy and sophisticated while still being youthful. I love the shorter length and long sleeves, though I think it would have also worked as a sleeveless dress. The whole look works perfectly with those black and white Rupert Sanderson heels and dramatic eyes.
Who: Mad Men starlet Kiernan Shipka
Wearing: An Emporio Armani black cape paired with iridescent paisley print trousers, teamed with a ruby red Swarovski crystal clutch, and black heels
Verdict: For me, Kiernan Shipka is another star on the rise, along with Holland, Hailee Steinfeld, and Dakota Fanning. At the Primetime Emmy’s Kiernan really shined in her gorgeous Delpozo frock, and this Emporio Armani two-piece is another stunning and well put together look.
Whereas most of the other starlets went for dresses, I love that Kiernan stood out from the pack in these incredible paisley print ankle-grazing trousers. They totally work with her chic black cape, I love the three-quarter sleeves, and the added pop of colour in her clutch bag rounds off the look perfectly.
Which look do you prefer Holland’s double-breasted blazer dress or Kiernan’s statement trousers?
