Looks of the Week - 08/12/12

This is the weekly roundup of celebrity style, on and off the red carpet.

Pretty In Prints
Natalie Martinez was charming in a floral and black baroque printed dress with sheer neckline and nude pumps.  
Jenna Dewan-Tatum made an outstanding appearance in a multi-print Etro crepe dress with burgundy suede ankle-strap shoes by Gucci.
Jessica Chastain was polished in a pink and beige floral print shift dress by Preen, along with nude Christian Louboutin 'Pigalle' pumps.
Bella Heathcote wore an endearing Fall-shaded floral print Valentino dress, expertly paired with peach Rupert Sanderson heels.
Dianna Agron is always pushing the fashion envelope, this time in a labyrinth print Bottega Veneta dress, laden with embellished black hemline and diamond shaped design. Dianna added block platform heels and coral clutch to her voguish look. 

The Sophisticates
Gwyneth Paltrow displayed this debonair outfit at an event in Dubai. The actress wore a shimmering charcoal Hugo Boss bustier top & cigarette pants, with bright red strappy heels.
Poppy Delevingne is wrapped up in a cozy tweed twilight blue Chanel ankle-length coat, accessorized by a cute fur Russian hat, chunky military boots and a blue satin Chanel bag.
Brittany Snow donned a menswear inspired Giorgio Armani ensemble, featuring an oversized oatmeal shaded blazer, black top, narrow trousers, a printed clutch bag and black pumps.

Brazilian model Ana Beatriz Barros upstyled her coral skinny jeans with a cream shirt and contemporary blazer, brown leather flat sandals and a Celine sling bag.
Miranda Kerr is effortlessly chic in a mix of classic pieces. She wears a camel trench coat over an A.P.C breton striped sweater, along with ripped Mango jeans, leopard print Prada loafers and a Celine Boston bag.
Olivia Palermo's savvy smart combination includes a burnt orange Tibi coat with contrast brown leather pockets, denim skinny jeans, a Givenchy bag and black Reiss pumps.

Cocktail Frocks

Emmy Rossum was festively red in a stunning lace embroidered long-sleeved Zuhair Murad dress, teamed with strappy gold Jimmy Choo sandals. 
Taylor Swift looked enchanting in an ivory lace Maria Lucia Hohan dress with flaired skirt, long-sleeves and nude underlay. Glittery gold Jimmy Choo peep-toe heels complete her look.
Emma Roberts styled her chic forest green Skaist Taylor leather skirt with a beige top, floral clutch, statement Swarovski necklace and nude Ruthie Davis ankle boots.
Cheryl Cole strikes a stylish pose in an orange and ivory 3.1 Phillip Lim dress with intricate origami folds and wrapped cut-out bodice. Spiked nude Louboutin pumps accompany her look.

Dressed to Impress
Elle MacPherson lit up the red carpet in a dazzling canary yellow Romona Kerveza gown with fitted bodice that showed of her amazing figure.
Diane Kruger slipped into a dreamy ice grey sheer ruffled Prabal Gurung gown with halter strap neck and white and metallic belt.
Hayden Panettiere made a splash in this hot pink Roberto Cavalli gown with slashed neckline and slitted skirt. She accented her look with turquoise jewellery and red Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toe heels.
