People’s Choice Awards: Morena Baccarin In Donna Karan Atelier

Morena Baccarin DonnaKaranA Peoples Choice Awards: Morena Baccarin In Donna Karan Atelier  %tagWho: Homeland’s Morena Baccarin

Where: At the People Choice Awards 2013, which were held last night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A smokey white strapless Donna Karan Atelier jumpsuit, featuring a stone encrusted corset, draped waisted and and silk crepe pants, teamed with a Swarovski clutch

Verdict: I do love seeing jumpsuits on the red carpet especially during award season, do you remember Rose Bryne at the SAG Awards last year, well I think this Donna Karan Atelier beauty on Morena Baccarin is just as stunning and daring.

For me this look is all about that corset, the stone embellishments really do stand out, and really gives this jumpsuit a red carpet feel. I am also pleased that it was in white, as it could have so easily been done in black, which I just think would have been a little too safe.

The only thing that could have made this my best dressed look over Taylor Swift would have been if the trouser length had been a little shorter, it just makes me think she changed her heels at the last minute to ones that weren’t as high.

But trust me that is just me being extra picky as I am always pleased to see Donna Karan Atelier on the red carpet – I can’t wait to see what the Golden Globes brings!!!

Who: Ashley Greene

Where: At the Los Angeles premiere of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California

Wearing: A custom-made one shouldered blush coloured woven silk organza and chiffon Donna Karan Atelier gown

Verdict: The partnership between Ashley and Donna just keeps getting better and better, this gown is incredible – I love the colour, the silhouette and I completely adored the woven design – sheer perfection.

I also love her hair, make-up, and her elegant jewellery was just enough – this look is all about that gorgeous gown.

Do you rate Ashley’s look?

The Apparition: Ashley Greene Is Stunning In Donna Karan Atelier

AshleyGreene ApparitionPrem The Apparition: Ashley Greene Is Stunning In Donna Karan Atelier %tag

Who: Ashley Greene

Where: At the LA premiere of her new film The Apparition held at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre

Wearing: A bright fuchsia strapless bustier Donna Karan Atelier floor-length gown, featured ruching detailing all over it and a thigh-high split to the side, teamed with nude Jimmy Choo heels and an eye-catching cocktail ring

Verdict:Wow, this on-going partnership between Ashley Greene and Donna Karan is a total winner, once again Ashley completely wows on the red, sorry black carpet. Styled by Cristina Ehrlich, who is known for styling the divine Penelope Cruz, really put together an amazing look. I love the colour, I call this eye-popping fuchsia a sophisticated Barbie colour, and I am loving that she went for a sexy look as she really can pull it off.

Ever since Ashley Greene was taken under the wing of Donna Karan I think she has looked more like a leading lady, her acting skills have never been in question, but the red carpet moments for an actress really can make or break them and Ashley is killing it in this gorgeous gown.

I also think a special mention has to go to her hair and make-up team – her hair is lovely down, but wow to her dark lippy – seriously hot!!!

What do you think of Ashley’s latest Donna Karan look? Does it beat her white Grecian Met Gala gown or her feathered trimmed cocktail dress that she wore to the Country Music Awards? I would have to say this fuchsia beauty is right up there with her best looks!!!

Met Gala 2012: Ashley Green In Donna Karan Atelier

ashley Met Gala 2012: Ashley Green In Donna Karan Atelier %tag

Who: Ashley Greene

Where: At the Met Gala 2012 in New York

Wearing: A custom-made white Grecian Donna Karan Atelier gown with silk chiffon pleats with draped beaded fringe made up of silver-lined bugles, and sea beads, and a stone encrusted sequin bustier; teamed with Jacob & Co. chandelier tassel earrings and flower diamond ring, and a metallic clutch

Verdict:  Last year Ashley Greene was one of my best dressed, and once again Donna Karan has done her proud with another exquisite gown, even better than last year. New York-based designer Donna Karan really has been on a roll of late, I loved Nina Dobrev’s gown, Cobie Smulders did just that at the Avenger’s premiere, and Alice Eve looked incredible, so I wasn’t surprised that Donna saved her best gowns for the biggest fashion event of the year.

Last year Ashley had a princess vibe about her with the intricate detailing and the fishbone train, this year she has a sultry feel to her look with this sexy-yet-feminine gown, which fits her perfectly and I love how she teamed the white with silver accessories, very chic and I love her hair down.

Who do you think look better Ashley or Nina?

Met Gala 2012: Nina Dobrev In Donna Karan Atelier

NinaDobrev1 Met Gala 2012: Nina Dobrev In Donna Karan Atelier %tag

Who: Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrev

Where: At the 2012 Met Gala in New York

Wearing: A black and antique gold Donna Karan Atelier gown inspired by the Donna Karan devoré dress immortalised by Gwyneth Paltrow in the film Great Expectations. The asymmetrical draped gown has been modernised with silk chiffon and burnt out metal sequins and gold-lined beads, with single layer sequin straps to her back

Verdict: Wow, what a way to debut Donna Karan Atelier, the designer’s new high eveningwear collection, as Nina Dobrev looks stunning styled by Ilaria Urbinati. Just for the combination of the black and gold it will hit the best dressed lists, add in the beauty of that gorgeous train, the sexy back, and the feminine draped detailing to the bustier, and it is simply stunning.

When Nina hit the pink carpet there was a lot of traffic, but seriously all the photographers were shouting for her, as she looked completely radiant, and totally captured everyone’s attention. Also check out her gorgeous H.Stern earrings, they are so delicate and lovely, work perfectly with such a gorgeous dress.

Without a doubt Nina’s dress will be one of my best dressed of the night, I have been waiting to see it for weeks since I knew Donna Karan was dressing her, and I most certainly wasn’t disppointed, if anything I was blown away even further by the brilliance of Donna Karan.

What do you think are you loving Nina’s look?

Red Tie Affair: Christa Allen In Donna Karan

ChristaAllenDonnaKaran Red Tie Affair: Christa Allen In Donna Karan %tag

Who: Revenge actress Christa Allen

Where: At the annual American Red Cross Red Tie Affair in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless red Donna Karan dress with large pleating to the skirt and fan pleating to the bust from the pre-fall 2012 collection, teamed with a black studded belt and black pointed-toe heels

Verdict: Firstly, I love large pleats on a skirt, but what draws me in with this dress is the exquisite structured fan detailing to the bust – how amazing is that – for me it instantly adds drama and flair to a simple-yet-flattering silhouette and I love it. Add the studded belt and black heels and it adds a sophistication perfect for a charity gala, seriously one hot look.

The only thing I am not loving is the casual vibe to her hairstyle, I want to see her shoulders so the ruffle on the bust shines, but this is me just being extra picky – but the large earrings do make up for it!!!

Also if like me you have been waiting for the Revenge, which every American seems to be obsessed with as it centres around the Hamptons, it is coming to the UK later this year as E4 have bought the rights – I can’t wait!!!
