Looks of the Week - 08/09/12

With a series of fashion week events, the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals and MTV awards, this was a flourishing week for celebrity style.

The Fine Print
Katherine McPhee wears the mixed graphic print trend with ease in this multi-hued Peter Pilotto dress, bringing out the blue with Charlotte Olympia pumps.
Selita Ebanks attended New York Fashion Week wearing a colourful panel printed mini dress by BCBG Max Azria. She highlighted her look with cerise pink Louboutin heels. 
Emma Watson brought some colour to the MTV Awards red carpet, with an eye-catching Peter Pilotto geometric colour-block top and snazzy print skirt.
A solemn looking Kristen Stewart exhibited a new, more refined style, wearing a feminine floral adorned lace dress by Zuhair Murad, along with Jimmy Choo shoes.

Decorative Dresses
Ashlee Simpson looked pretty in New York, dressed in a serene white embellished Jenny Packham frock, accented by polished silver shoes and a tasseled disco-ball minauderie.
French-Ukranian beauty Olga Kurylenko wears a pastel blue sheer embroidered Emilio Pucci mini with nude 'Pigalle' pumps by Christian Louboutin.
Laetitia Casta was captivating in a sublime peach Elie Saab dress, decked with sprays of gold beads. Matching block strap heels complete her stunning look.
Zoe Saldana premiered her new movie 'The Words' in Los Angeles, looking graceful in golden beaded Elie Saab knee-length dress, with satin heels to match.

Cloud Nine
Italian actress Alessandra Mastronardi looked elegant in a white peplum dress by Alessandra Rich, with fitted lace maxi skirt and silver metallic belt.
17-year-old Maika Monroe attracted attention in a sumptuous short-sleeved snow-white Marchesa gown, the skirt enveloped by a cloud of feathers. This is the same dress we saw Elizabeth Olsen wear in an editorial earlier this week.
Rachel Weisz chose an angelic white bordering-on-bridal tiered Nina Ricci gown for the 'Bourne Legacy' movie premiere in France.

Nicole Richie pushed her style limits in this dare-to-bare Anthony Vaccarello cut-out dress with extreme V-neck. Nicole continued the strappy theme with Costume National heels.
Selena Gomez grows up glamourous in a richly embroidered gold and black lace dress from Dolce & Gabbana's Fall 2012 collection. Her perfect choice of heels are by Jimmy Choo.
Olga Kurylenko displays the Fall gothic trend in a black Valentino gown with fitted leather and lace bodice and voluminous tulle paneled skirt.

In Sequin-ce
Blake Lively showed off her toned pins in a shimmering burgundy Gucci mini, encrusted with sequins. Matching ankle strap Gucci heels complete her look.
British supermodel Cara Delevingne sparkled in a strapless silver chainmail dress with cutout bustier Black t-bar strap sandals and a quilted clutch bag accessorize her outfit.
Kate Beckinsale was draped in a sequined sky blue Vivienne Westwood dress, contrasted by white mesh Louboutin heels and a white clutch.

Belles of the Ball

Vanessa Hudgens dazzled at the Venice Film Festival wearing a vintage inspired Temperley London plunge-neck gown with flutter sleeves, garnished with metallic gold beadwork.
Newcomer Madisen Beaty played princess in a romantic blush silk strapless frock by Alberta Ferreti, encircled by an enchanting tiered tulle skirt.
Selena Gomez wowed the critics and crowd in an exquisitely structured and leather embroidered Atelier Versace gown. Two stellar looks from the former Disney star this week, I hope that there's more where this came from.

Who is your favourite 'Look of the Week'?

Denise said...

4 favorite dresses for me now! Kristen Stewart is my number 1 favorite, then Laetitia Casta, Selena Gomez and Katherine McPhee! All very well selected! But that KS's dress, if I were her shape, yes! I'm more like Kim Kardashian - height, hips, breasts, and with such a dress one can look a bit too... uh... vulgar? I mean, I try to wear not so tight clothes, although that dress is my choice, no doubt!

Protezkaa.. said...

Everyone looks so gorgeous! I have to say though I think K-Stew's look is my favourite xxx

Elisabeth said...

Of course Elie Saab is my favorite - again! There is just something about his dresses that make my heart melt! He's a genius!
I also like Kristen Stewart's and Selena Gomez's looks (I'm looking for a dress like Selena's) and even though I don't like Cara Delevingne's dress that much, she is just always so amazing looking!
Thank you Sam for your kind words concerning my style :) I like to try all kinds of new things, I don't like to be stuck with any behavioral patterns :)

Francesca. said...

I'm such a sucker for Peter Pilotto, and Emma Watson is one of my favourite actresses, so I absolutely adored her look at the MTV awards! Definitely my favourite look of the week.
I'm not a Kristen Stewart fan at ALL, but she did rock that Zuhair Murad dress, it's such a gorgeous creation, and Selena Gomez looked amazing this week, too - so nice to see her style evolving xx

some ffantastic looks this week- the only look i dont like is what rachel wiess is wearing. I just dont think the dress looks good on her (its the first layer about her bust i dont like) which is a shame as she is an amazinly beautiful woman
thanks for the comment on my blog- i love the high wedges sneakers and i am considering buying a black pair too

Anita said...

Lovely blog.

Raji said...

Gorgeous post, what a great blog you have
I'm falling more and more in love with baroque dresses every time I see one

Poppy Lee Jones said...

wow, lovely dresses, everyone looks so amazing! my favourites are ashlee simpson's white lace dress and the silver dress cara delevingne is wearing. and she's gorgeous, love her eyebrows and hair!
and thank you so much for the comment! no, i didn't do any diving in sodwana, some of my friends did snorkling but the water was pretty cold and i'm more of a lazy person so i just lay on the beach and got a tan, haha! we had actually planned on doing whale watching but the sea was too stormy so we couldn't go. we saw some whales from the beach, though, pretty far away obviously.
but yeah, the wild life was amazing. we spent two days in sandton before taking the plane from joburg, that was cool, too but i didn't take any photos because i didn't want to carry my camera around all day.. unfortunately my camera bag's huge and not very pretty, haha.
omg that was a long comment! following you now btw, your blog's so lovely! xx

Marie Martell said...

Hey Sam!!! Hope all is well! Miss ya! I honestly can't decide who was my fav look! There were soooo many this week! but I'll go with.... Kristen Stewart and Selena Gomez!
