Looks Of The Week - 03/12/11

My selection of must-see looks this week.

Casual


Only Charlize Theron could wear a bright orange jumpsuit without looking like an escaped convict. The elegant actress wore a black velvet blazer over her plunge-neck, tapered leg suit while in New York City. She paired it with a large black clutch and strappy sandals.
Fearne Cotton was out in London wearing a unique black and white brick-print dress by Olivia Rubin. I commend her for being a style innovator - I think we're going to see a lot more of this print. The radio host kept the focus on the dress by wearing it with all black, including a leather biker, tights and tie-up boots.
Dianna Agron picked out a pretty outfit for a trip to Beverly Hills. The Glee star wore a pleated peach maxi skirt by McGinn, with a crisp white shirt, Miu Miu sunglasses and black ankle boots. I'm inspired to buy a maxi skirt after seeing this dainty look.
Miranda Kerr looked chic on the streets of New York, wearing a black leather Balenciaga jacket over a striped top by The Row. Khaki capri's, black buckled ankle boots and a large Celine tote complete her look.

Formal


Andrea Riseborough was in Los Angeles for the BAFTA Britannia Awards. The British actress enchanted in a celestial white Marchesa frock, framed by organza frills. Her metallic pumps are by Brian Atwood. I would've liked to see her with a softer hairstyle.
Cara Delevinge attended the Burberry boutique opening in Paris. The blonde model looked poised in a black Burberry dress, black tights and heels. She made a statement with a crimson red clutch and lipstick to match. I love how she wears simplicity with such fierceness.
Kate Beckinsale showed off her pins at the Independent Spirit Awards nomination event in Hollywood. The Underworld actress went for a sexy vintage-inspired look, in a beige and white drop-waist lace dress by Tadashi Shoji. Nude Brian Atwood pumps fit her feet.
Victoria Beckham at the British Fashion Awards wearing one of her own creations - she is faultless in this floor-sweeping black halter gown.

Debatable
Paula Patton was in Toyko promoting her new movie, 'Mission Impossible 4'. She wore a shiny black jumpsuit that's coming off more 'Catwoman' than couture.
Sarah Jessica Parker wore Louis Vuitton to the Unicef Snowflake Ball. I'm on the fence about her look. I like the flamboyance of the floral-eyelet skirt, which is covered in aqua and white ostrich feathers. I don't like the creasy cropped satin top that seems so disconnected from it.
Kate Moss was also an attendee at the British Fashion Awards. You're either going to love this look, Or you're also going to think it looks like a giant fishnet over a nude dress.

I really like the Miranda Kerr outfit. And you're right, on anyone else that would look crazy but Charlize Theron pulls it off well!

Really good round-up, Kate Beckinsale looks beautiful, the hair is flawless.
A little disappointed with SJP's choice of top as well, had she gone with something a little more fitted or just a little tailored she wouldn't have ruined that fabulous L.V. skirt!

Hi Sam- Thanks for the support! <3 I love that your blog is so inspirational and informative about items and products. So many outfits (casual and formal) that I drooled over whilst browsing through your posts.

And I totally agree - the oscar de la renta green stole is drop dead gorgeous but im sure they had to 'justify' the 1800$ price tag - which is another major deterrent :P I have actually seen similar styles in faux - just gotta keep a look out! :)

And oh yess the silk top is to die for. Aritzia carries a lot of T.babaton and Wilfred silk items that work very well in both casual and semi-formal/business settings.

I hope you have a good weekend, Sam! Come back and check for updates soon!! ^_^

I liked Charlize Theron's outfit! Miranda Kerr is also gorgeous!
I also loved Kate Beckinsale's look!
I am choosing an outfit for the New Year's Eve, I guess I'll get something like Dianna Agron wore, but alas, up to the end of the year there are many many days... I'll wait for another selection of outfits that you'll bring, then!
Have a great great weekend!

Vanisha @ Vanisha's Life In...Australia said...

PS Hey Sam, Just to answer your question, I'm using a DSLR - Canon 550D. I haven't made the best use of the camera, still learning :) But thank you for your beautiful comment, that's encouraging! And that picture was taken in Fiji

Buzzed For Beauty said...

GIRL. Your blog has great editorial content! It's so well done, I love this post! It's fantastic, I love it, Allure magazine used to do something similar by tracking celebrity's style and focusing on a diff celeb each month but they stopped and I missed it so much! I love this because you give a little bit about each fashionista celebrity! :) Following you, keep this up <3

Daniella xox said...

Wow i think SJP looks amazing!! Though i do kinda see what you mean about the top she is wearing. What can i say about Victoria Beckham,she looks incredible! :)

Take care,Daniella xox

All of the "debatables" are awful to me. Charlize Theron is a freak of nature. She could wear anything!

I love what Dianna Agron is wearing - am feverishly wracking my mind trying to work out where I saw a similar skirt last night so I can go buy it! Wish I could pull of Kate B's look and can't believe SJP got it wrong! Hope you had a lovely weekend

Danielle @ VintageDanielle said...

I am obsessed with black and white stripes and leather so naturally I love Miranda's outfit, so simple and effortlessly chic. Victoria looks like a fashion barbie doll, in a good way of course. And I can see why you added the Debatable section haha.

Always loving your blog!

Eve.H said...

Hi Sam, and thank you very much for your comment you left on my blog. I love your blog it was actually funny to read this fashion review. A giant fishnet over a nude dress :D Fitting ;) xoxo Eve.h

Sam said...

Miu said...

I like the outfits of Fearne Cotton and Cara Delevinge.

Emily said...

My favorite casual look is Charlize Theron's. She pulls off that jumpsuit so well! And I love the shoes. Victoria Beckham looks so elegant in that long black dress! I actually love Kate Moss' dress. It's the look that stands out to me most. The fishnet is beyond cool!
