Trends of The Week

There were two prominent trends on and off the red carpet this week. Firstly, there was a flurry of pretty printed dress, and in complete contrast, some stars took on the more masculine fashion trend.

Prints

Sarah Jessica Parker was in London to promote her new movie, 'I Don't Know How She Does It'. The actress wore a black and yellow colour block frock with pink and white floral panels. Her dress is by Prabal Gurung, with black glitter heels by Charlotte Olympia.
Salma Hayek looked vibrant in a multicoloured snugly-fit floral sheath by Balenciaga. Ankle strap heels and a large orange Balenciaga tote finished her look.
Keira Knightley's silk-satin patterned dress is by Mary Katrantzou. She wore it for the photocall of her new movie, 'A Dangerous Method'. Her nude heels are by Jimmy Choo. I like her angular bob hairstyle.
Kate Bosworth was out in LA, wearing a cute printed strapless dress by Isabel Marant. She paired it with flat beige suede boots, also by Marant, and an Alexander Wang handbag.
Andrea Riseborough looked jazzy in a floral print Dolce & Gabbana dress, highlighted with orange panels. She wore gold pumps with it.


The Menswear Trend
Kate Winslet looked chic at the photocall for her new movie, 'Mildred Pierce'. The Oscar-winning actress wore a black one-button blazer by Helmet Lang, over a plain tank and belted shorts. She walked in high black peep-toe heels.
Alexa Chung was photographed just before her DJing gig at a fashion event in Sydney, Australia. She wore a buttoned up ivory shirt and black pencil skirt. Alexa styled her look with a red quilted Chanel bag, matching red lipstick and flat houndstooth sandals.
Evan Rachel Wood looked sleek at a photocall in Venice this week. She donned a black Dolce & Gabbana suit, teamed with a white ruffled-neck blouse. I love her houndstooth heels, which are by Salvatore Ferragamo.
Monica Bellucci is another actress who adopted the menswear trend in Venice. She wore a white buttoned down shirt under a tailored black waistcoat, with black suit trousers. She went a step further with the masculine trend by wearing flat black mens shoes and held a large carrier bag. I would've preferred a sexy pencil heel with this look.
