Looks of the Week - 23/03/13

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

Black and White
AnnaSophia Robb shows her love for Alice+Olivia once again, wearing a diagonally striped shift dress by the brand. She cleverly accessorized with a green Nanette Lepore bag and bright pink ankle strap shoes by Jean-Michel Cazabat.
Supermodel Hilary Rhoda was captivating in a froufrou white feathered frock by Jason Wu, styled with all black accessories and black strappy sandals.
Brit actress Anna Shaffer looked suave in a Jekyll & Hyde type black & white dress by Osman.
Diane Kruger donned an alluring embroidered black dress by Thakoon, featuring sexy sheer panelling. It's her snazzy pair of caged Jimmy Choo heels that draw most of the attention.

Style Spinners
Lily Aldridge pops up on week's street style radar in a paisley and geometric printed jersey maxi dress by Givenchy. Lily's impeccable styling includes a leather biker jacket, fedora, a Givenchy Pandora bag and Balenciaga wedges.
Alexa Chung presented a more refined side to her style, wearing a burnished coffee coloured full skirt and jacket suit with cut-out cross-over waist, by Carven
Irish actress Saoirse Ronan went whimsical in a quaint carousel horse print red dress by Tabitha Webb. Saoirse played down the vintage femininity of her dress with black and grey masculine loafers.
Amber Le Bon is effortlessly chic in a Batman insignia tshirt, worn with a tailored black blazer, wide statement belt and taupe maxi skirt.

The Minimalists
Revenge star Ashley Madekwe wears a white Mulberry peplum top and abstract animal print pants, with a dashing Mulberry Suffolk bag in tow.
Russian-American actress Olesya Rulin made her stamp on the red carpet, wearing a polished ensemble by Osman, which includes a white top with slightly oversized sleeves and rose pink silk trousers. Strappy gold sandals complete her look.
Rachel Bilson does a Dior twist on the usual 'little black dress', with trailing pieces of pastel pink and orange organza appended to the side. Her black pumps are by Christian Louboutin.

Pattern Play
Mad Men's Jessica Pare threw caution to the wind, wearing a conspicuous teal and pink floral printed satin midi dress by Prabal Gurung. She contrasted her look with a pair of white and black cap-toed heels, also by the Nepalese designer.
Maria Sharapova's styling skills are as impressive as her tennis serves. She looks pretty in a purple and blue watercolour print brocade silk skirt and sleeveless blouse by J.Mendel.
Christina Ricci is multi-hued in an innovatively patterned neoprene dress by Clover Canyon.
Emmy Rossum is always a delight on the red carpet. Here she wears a dainty fern green and cream floral embroidered frock by Topshop, along with white pumps also from the label.

Solid Shadings

Alexandra Daddario went modernistic in a cerise pink Jay Godfrey mini dress, with cut-out midriff and angled peplum skirt. Black T-bar strap sandals complete her outfit.
Rosario Dawson made a striking appearance in scarlet, glimmering in a fully embellished wing-sleeved gown by Jenny Packham.
Vanessa Hudgens displayed her sunny disposition in a canary yellow sequined dress by Alice+Olivia. Gold Jerome C. Rousseau sandals fit her feet.
'Game of Thrones' actress Emilia Clarke exuded sophisticated glamour in a fitted cobalt blue strapless gown by Victoria Beckham.

Katie Q. said...

You know, I really do like Hilary Rhonda's feather dress in the first set. (Ha, you really got me into feathers now!) It's kind of a crazy dress but it's a good crazy and I like how she kept everything else pretty simple looking. The two winners for are Lily A and Amber in the second set of pictures, I LOVE the long maxi skirts with the graphic tee shirts! Those are such fantastic, fun and cool looking outfits, now I want to go wear my maxi skirts with some tee shirts. :)

Beauty Follower said...

Hilary Rhoda was captivating indeed. I also liked Anna's Shaffer, Alexa's Chung, Amber Le Bon and Olesya Rulin outfits!

I find the two last dresses (the yellow and the electric blue) spectacular!!

Elly @ Caribbean Living said...

These are all fabulous, but think I'm going to have to vote for the black and white looks up top. AnnaSophia and Anna and ROCKING those geometric dresses, love!!!
