Looks of the Week - 15/12/12

An eventful festive season has provided us with an abundance of fashion inspiration this week. Here is the weekly roundup of celebrity style.

Frock 'n Roll

Maria Sharapova was fetching in a retro inspired ensemble that included a floral printed Zimmermann top with contrast black sleeves, and a candy pink flaired Tanya Taylor skirt. Her black pumps are Giuseppe Zanotti
Bella Thorne enchanted in a black and white dress with sheer yoke, bejeweled waistband and frou frou fringed skirt, which is by Sherri Hill. Miu Miu heels fit her feet.
Stacey Keibler made a stylish appearance in an ivory Rag & Bone dress with draped bodice, black belt and wrapped skirt. Her covetable caged sandals are by Jimmy Choo.


Aussie songtress Natasha Bedingfield was stunning in a vivid green silk crepe
gown with keyhole cut-out neckline by Issa.

Blake Lively wears a ravishing red leather Isabel Marant mini, decked with metallic studs. She interestingly added a pair of nude caged Christian Louboutin ankle boots to her look.
Jessica Chastain looked beautiful in a royal blue Elie Saab number with lace covered bodice and frill detail skirt. Charlotte Olympia was her choice of shoe designer.
Karolina Kurkova showed off the more masculine side of an Elie Saab ensemble, striking in a raspberry blazer, shirt and shorts combo. Black accessories accompanied her outfit.
Rosamund Pike jumps onto the sunshine yellow trend in this stunning gown with cut-out sides and streaming skirt by Alexander McQueen.

Burgundy & Blue
Gabriella Wilde was ladylike in a fit and flair Burberry dress with cut-out neck in the hottest colour of the season, burgundy. It's her heels that need some refining.
Hanneli Mustaparta proves that simplicity is key in a chic navy blue swing dress, paired with a cream clutch and black cross-strap sandals.
Elizabeth Banks is elegant in a maroon and blue tweed Trina Turk dress, which is cleverly tapered at the waist. Her peep-toe heels are by Miu Miu.
Teen star Zendaya picked out an age-appropriate tweed plaid dress by Shoshanna Allison, which makes me wish this is what school uniforms looked liked. Her hot pink pumps are by Manolo Blahnik, can't decide if I like those heels with this look.

Urban Upstyle
If you look under 'chic' in a fashion dictionary, I am sure you will see a picture of Victoria Beckham. Posh looked sophisticated in a deep plum military coat and gold clutch from her own range, along with a white shirt, Isabel Marant trousers and Manolo Blahnik heels.
Kristen Stewart does menswear with ease. The controversial actress looked debonair in a smoked grey BCBG blazer with white tee, leather H&M leggings and ruby Louboutin pumps.
Lucy Liu wraps up in a stunning caramel cape coat dress by Dolce & Gabbana. Black knee-high Stuart Weitzman boots and gloves accessorize her suave ensemble.
Olivia Wilde displays how to wear all-black in a trim leather biker jacket and leather sheen skinnies. The drawing point to her look has to be red studded Christian Louboutin pumps, which were voted sexiest shoe of the year.

Glamour & Gold
Amanda Seyfried wears an extravagant gold encrusted bodice and flowing black skirt by Alexander McQueen. I can't help but not like her hairstyle with this look.
90210's Jessica Stroup was utterly graceful in a pale gold shimmery gown by Lela Rose.
Anne Hathaway took on a more goth persona in this coal black Tom Ford gown with superhero-like cape attached. Deviant dominatrix-style sandalized boots added to the edgy look. Do you think this is a hit or miss for Anne?

Pastel Princesses

Swedish actress Alicia Vikander was ethereal in a frosted pink light-as-air Chanel gown with delicate ruffle detailing. This is the dress my daydreams are made of.
Sarah Jessica Parker's icy breeze of a blue gown features a cut-out sheer midriff and intricate lace embroidery. It is from Erdem's SS13 collection.
The adorable Elle Fanning makes a fanciful red carpet appearance, wearing a peach embellished gown by Oscar de la Renta with voluminous high-low teacup skirt.

So many great choices...but...Who's your favourite 'Look of the Week'?

Josie said...

Anne Hathaway looked nuts but I loved her hair and make up! I think Jessica Chastain is my fave, her hair looks amazing and I love that colour on her xxx

Lavender Loafers said...

Inspiring!!!! Sarah Jessika Parker is fabulous like always! I don't like Kristen Stewart, I think she is not good actress, but I love her outfit here, especially her jacket! Also Victiria Beckham amazed me, she could combine office and glam style suscessfully!

Katie Q. said...

I want Bella Throne's skirt. (I know, I know, feathered coats might not be my thing, but I die over feathered skirts. I love the movement and they just always look so amazing!) This skirt in particular is so gorgeous, I like the longer length and I love how she paired it with the black peek-a-boo top. (I also wouldn't mind Gabrielle Wilde's burgundy dress.)

The Urban Market said...

Love Victoria's coat!

Rosamund Pike's yellow dress.. oh my gosh, so dreamy! And so lemon-y and gorgeous. I just love how it's so classic in terms of the A-line shape and the pleats, but then that cut out makes it so unique, plus that amazing citrus-y color! Love love.
