Looks Of The Week - 24/03/12

The weekly celebrity style watch...

Comfortably Casual
Alexa Chung is yet again the queen of 'cool casual'. The TV personality mixes up a black Bella Freud literary top with a multi-hued Celine mini skirt and black patent loafers by Nicholas Kirkwood. Yes, if I had those long legs, I'd only wear flats too.
January Jones brought stripes to her New York street style in a long-sleeved Splendid dress, worn under black leather biker, with navy blue tights, studded black boots and a dashing tri-coloured Prada Pyramid accordion frame leather bag. 
Jennifer Lawrence was out doing the talk show rounds in NYC, looking retro-chic in a nautical inspired ensemble, made up of a white V-neck Joie 'Tahoe' blouse, along with a navy blue Holmes & Yang button-down skirt and white Giuseppe Zanotti ankle strap heels. She added a pop of colour with a red skinny YSL belt.
Only Victoria Beckham can put the 'posh' into a simple black tank and a pair of flare denim jeans. She added her inherent stylish touch with a pair of Cutler & Gross sunglasses, Rolex watch and a chain handle hexagonal bag from her own line.

Jennifer Lawrence shows off her stellar figure at the NYC screening of her highly anticipated new movie, 'The Hunger Games'. The blonde actress wore a sexy plunge-neck forest green dress with flare pleated skirt and belted waist by Calvin Klein. Metallic ankle strap Calvin Klein sandals fit her feet.
Kaley Cuoco glowed in yellow at a charity event in Beverly Hills. The comedic actress looked fetching in a sunny daffodil lace Tadashi Shoji dress, with tulle tiered skirt and a criss-cross ribboned belt tied up in a bow. Glossy metallic gold ankle strap pumps by Brian Atwood finished off her adorable outfit.
Elizabeth Banks continues on with her bright colour streak from last week. Her burnt orange belted Andrew Gn dress features a low neck, gathered sleeves and is slightly ruffled down the skirt. She wears silver mirrored peep toe heels by Christian Louboutin.
Eva Longoria was elegant in a magenta form-fitting Victoria Beckham dress, boldly paired with black Christian Louboutin 'Daffodile' platform pumps and a matt crocodile chain handle hexagonal handbag which we saw Victoria Beckham wear earlier.

Posh 'n Polished
Lily Collins shines at her premiere of her new fairytale flick, 'Mirror Mirror. Keeping in character (with magic wand and all), she donned a princess-prototype black and gold poufy-skirt dress by Dolce & Gabbana. Lily is another celebrity to catch on to the ankle strap trend, with heels by Giuseppe Zanotti.
Teresa Palmer dazzled the crowd at the premiere of her new movie, 'Wish You Were Here'. She picked out an enchanting Collette Dinnigan dress with embellished bodice and fully fringed skirt. I'm not fully convinced by her black peep toe sandals though.
Olivia Palermo wore a white Tibi gown to a Gala in Germany. This is fashion gold for me. I love the simplicity and sheer femininity of this wispy white dress with peplum flounce. Refined styling, soft make-up and glossy curls...Perfection. 
Troian Bellisario is another starlet who wore Tibi on the red carpet this week. Her two-tone ivory cap-sleeved dress contrasts tweed with silk chiffon panelling, and has an inverted pleat on the skirt. Turquoise earrings added a hint of colour to her slick, sophisticated look.

OMG, it's really hard to choose favorites! I would have to go with Jennifer Lawrence's nautical ensemble, Kaley Cuoco's bright look, and Olivia Palermo's boho outfit. :)

I really like Jennifer Lawrence's look.

kathy said...

wow these are all great looks!

Elisabeth said...

I love the colored outfits! I hear at my workplace that my colleagues eagerly wait for everyday so they can see what color I've picked for the day. Color is not something widely used in office work, at least not yet, so I'm happy to bring some color to the office.
Jennifer Lawrence looks great as well!

The casual looks are such great inspirations! I just love how Alexa Chung wears that colourful skirt. So many times, I just don't know how to wear multi colours stuff and actually they look just good with a simple black sweater!

OOOoo loving this for style inspiration! My picks out of your top pics are: January Jones for the first row, Elizabeth Banks for the second row and Olivia Palermo for the 3rd row, admittedly Olivia does no wrong in my eyes though so its totally a bias pick that last one! haha

Alexa Chung and Victoria Beckham, my best!

Nuar said...

Hey, Sam!
This time all my kudos go to Jennifer Lawrence, and of course, to you, for choosing her looks! Apart from her acting skills (I loved her in Winter's Bone and in The Hunger Games), I'm growing to like her sense of style more and more! Both the retro-chic nautical outfit and the CK dress are amazing and tasteful.
Have a wonderful week, sweetie!

Hi Hun,
Just getting a chance to catch up with you. I just love Eva Longoria, she has the ideal figure to show off a Victoria Beckham dress.
Have a great week!
