Looks Of The Week - 17/12/11

My picks of the best and worst outfits worn this week.

Black & White
Rachel Zoe was in San Diego to promote her Spring 2012 line at Nordstrom. The stylist was tastefully dressed in a high-collared white maxi dress, which she clinched in with a wide leather belt. She finished her look with a tailored black blazer, gold cuff and long necklaces.
Kristen Cavallari does boho-chic effortlessly, while in Malibu. The reality star wore all black with a fabulous white faux fur jacket. She accessorized with a black floppy hat, Alexander Wang duffle bag and Christian Louboutin 'Moulage' platforms.
Paz Vega attended the Marrakech Film Festival earlier this week. The Spanish actress looked prim and poised in a black 3/4 sleeve Moschino dress with white accents.
Amber Heard was spotted on the streets of NYC in an embroidered Proenza Schouler bouclé jacket, worn over a black and white Dolce & Gabbana dress.


The Dresses That Impressed
Kaley Cuoco looked rather fetching in an ivory tulle and lace embroidered Tadashi Shoji dress, which has a grosgrain ribbon belt. Her choice of heels could have been more exciting.
Nina Dobrev smoldered in a black bustier dress with scalloped lace neckline and pencil skirt, by Monique Lhuillier. I was immediately drawn to her hot pink Brian Atwood pumps, which add a playful touch to this otherwise formal look.
Blake Lively looked delightful in Gucci at a Sprinkles Cupcakes event in New York. The Gossip Girl star wore a gold pleated metallic skirt with a cream blouse and gold floral brooch. She chose dark green Brian Atwood pumps to go with her look. Might I add, she was there to bake cupcakes for charity. Only Blake could bake in Gucci.
Kate Mara stood out in coral at 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' movie premiere in NYC. The actress looked pretty in a pleated chiffon Christian Dior dress with tie-up shoulder detail. She carried a sequined Miu Miu clutch, and walked in Brian Atwood metallic pumps. As you can tell from the last three looks, this was a really good week for Atwood.
Brooklyn Decker also wore Christian Dior this week, at an event hosted by CNN. The model opted for a revised 20's look in a cream & gold shimmer dress with frilled hem. Her choice of heels perfectly complimented the dress, with tie-up metallic gold Loeffler Randal sandals. 


 The Ones That Didn't
Fergie was out in LA wearing this oversized fur-sleeved coat. It appears that she's transitioning to play a werewolf in the next Twilight movie. 
Natalia Vodianova shows us what happened when she literally painted the town (and herself) red. She clearly took the song 'Lady in Red' too seriously.
Whitney Port in a mishmash of ideas and shapes that don't quite work together. 
Jessica Stroup rolled out of bed in a gold satin night dress to attend a charity benefit in California. She's always dressed well on 90210, I don't know what happened here. Could she have not borrowed some of the clothes from set?

I love, love, love that Moschino dress Paz Vega wore. I adore the girlyness of Moschino and I'm a complete sucker for LBD with a little white.

This is a really great feature. I think Amber Heard has been pretty much killing it lately.

Jo Bao said...

I agree with you...I really didn't like the red dress piece..it looks HORRIBLE. I don't know why some celebrities would still want to purchase something that looks not that great. D:

Ash Louise said...

Haha, the llama was at christmas market.. but i just pretended he had lunch with us cause i was soooo in love with his big puffy afro ;)

It looks like the last girl... ummmm... let me look her name again, jessica stroup, could have made that whole outfit look super cute. Except she didn't really. If she had added accessories and tried to make it a littel 1920's i think it would have worked :)

Ash Louise said...

ps. you're really good at your reviews.

Sam said...

Thanks Ash Louise. You right about Jessica's outfit, accessories would have turned her whole look around.

Hello!
Great fashion picks!
I adore Paz Vega's Moschino dress... very elegant and simple, two main factors for outfit (for me)
My favourite Natalia Vodyanova disappointed me a lot with all this red cloud on her perfect body... he always had a good sense of style...
By the way, thank you very much for commenting on my blog!!!
Have a happy weekend!!! :-)

Blonde hair, Blue jeans said...

good selection!

i'm not really a great fan of Blake Lively, but she dies look great with that look!

Denise said...

I was going to comment yesterday, when I read the post, but then something happened and suddenly every comment I could have left wouldn't feel right... I'll try to explain later...
But right now I can say that the White and black combos are really gorgeous! I love white and black, the match is so elegant and classy...
The dresses that impressed: I liked three of them; Blake Lively is always chosen as best dressed, and for sure her choice was interesting, but next week I'm donating a bit similar skirt, so that it wasn't my favorite outfit now... The last "impressive dress" was also interesting, but I found the first, second and third ones (from the left) more feminine.
And the outfits that didn't impress... Fergie's one was kind of okish, but the others... ooohhh!
Hope you have a great Sunday!
