SAG Awards: Nina Dobrev In Elie Saab

nina-dobrev-elie-saabWho: Nina Dobrev 

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A sleek Barbie pink Elie Saab gown featuring subtle sheer-lace cut-outs from the ready-to-wear spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with a thin belt, Neil Lane jewels, a bejewelled Judith Lieber box clutch, and Jimmy Choo heels

Verdict: I love it when young actresses shine on the red carpet, I love it even more when they wear bright colours, and I am super pleased when it is Elie Saab!!! Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev was my best dressed last night at the SAG Awards as she looked absolutely incredible in this simple-yet-chic Elie Saab gown.

I was trying to pin down why I loved it so much, of course the Barbie pink shade was always going to get my vote, but even though I love a Princess dress I really love that this has a sporty vibe with the t-shirt sleeves, and I just couldn’t shake how much it kind of reminded me of the simple Calvin Klein dress that Jennifer Lawrence wore to the Oscars in 2011.

But what this look has is the touch of sexy glamour with the sheer lace cut-outs and the sparkly box clutch and those gorgeous Neil Lane drop earrings. This minimalistic gown teamed with sparkling accessories was the perfect combination to add to Nina’s natural beauty and incredible body – this look is when the dress + styling + star work perfectly together and I love it.

Do you love this look as much as I do?

SAG Awards: Kerry Washington In Rodarte

Kerry Washington, Rodarte, SAG AwardsWho: Kerry Washington

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless white silk tulle Rodarte gown featuring an embellished bodice with Swarovski Elements and silver lace around the hemline and back, teamed with a silver Judith Leiber clutch, white Christian Louboutin heels, and jewellery from Fred Leighton

Verdict: Kerry Washington is fast becoming on of my favourite red carpet stars as I just don’t know what she is going to wear, and like Diane Kruger she seems to have an ability to wear near enough anything and look incredible.

This Rodarte gown was not only stunning on her but a little unexpected, which is probably why it was one of my favourite looks from the SAG Awards red carpet. Normally white gowns don’t work for me on the red carpet, but this dress has an edgy quality with the structured embellished bodice, which is complemented nicely with the soft lace-trimmed skirt.

Finishing off her gorgeous look were stunning diamond jewels from Fred Leighton, I love her ’50s platinum drop earrings and that metallic Judith Leiber box clutch is perfection. Then add in her flawless make-up and up-do and this for me is a perfect red carpet look.

Pitch Perfect: Anna Kendrick in Zuhair Murad

Who: Actress Anna Kendrick

Where: At the ‘Pitch Perfect’ premiere in Los Angeles

Wearing: A nude high-neck sleeveless Zuhair Murad mini dress featuring a gold embroidery design from the autumn/winter 2012 ready-to-wear collection, teamed with Brian Atwood heels, Dana Rebecca Designs rings and earrings, and a gold mirrored Judith Leiber clutch

Verdict: I am not sure how I missed Anna Kendrick looking so stunning on the red carpet for her new flick Pitch Perfect in LA, I am thinking it is because I was so blown away by the gorgeous Brittany Snow, but wow, wow, wow to this incredible Zuhair Murad mini dress.

Everything from the silhouette of the kick-flare dress to the gold and nude colour combination, to her glossy wavy hair, this is one stunning look. I loved her edgy Mulberry dress she wore in Toronto and now I am loving this sexy Zuhair Murad – I am going to have to keep an eye on Anna as she really has up her fashion game lately!!!

What do you think of Anna’s latest look?

Venice Film Festival: Selena Gomez In Atelier Versace

Who: Selena Gomez

Where: At the premiere for her new film Spring Breakers at the 69th Annual Venice Film Festival

Wearing: A strapless pale pink leather Atelier Versace gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, featuring a stencil design and a dramatic draping that gathered at her hip and then cascaded down her skirt to the side, teamed with a Judith Leiber minaudière and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery

Verdict: On paper, this dress should have been worn by a red carpet big-hitter like Kate Hudson, Diane Kruger, or Penelope Cruz, but some how Selena really makes this exquisite gown work for her.

Last year she was a Disney starlet, cute, adorable but still very much a teenager, this year she really has stepped it up, hitting twenty has turned her into a screen siren in the making for me. I loved her sexy Roberto Cavalli mini she wore the MuchMusic Video Awards, I had serious leg envy when she worked a Versace look to launch her fragrance, but what really made her stand-out for me this year had to be her high-fashion editorial for the July issue of American ELLE – it really showed off her sexy side.

Like with newcomer Maika Monroe who wowed last week in Marchesa, Selena came to Venice and completely stole the show. I love the blush-toned colour of the gown, I love the drama of the side draping, I totally adore her side-swept tousled waves, and I really don’t think her first major appearance at the Venice Film Festival could have gone much better!!!

Do you rate Selena’s look or do you think this dress is a little too mature for her?
