Looks of the Week - 07/09/13

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

Colour Blocked
Victoria's Secret supermodel Lindsay Ellingson takes a twirl in a winsome red and coral dress with wrap bodice and nude Louboutin peep-toe heels.
Italian-based actress Elisa Sednaoui looked impeccably polished in a pastel pink, black and red Stella McCartney colour-blocked column gown with contrast velvet sleeves.
Lily Aldridge put her best foot forward in a bubble gum pink sweater and beige skirt set by Micheal Kors, styled with nude ankle strap sandals.

Bits of Blue
Maria Sharapova looked suave in a navy and lime green cuffed blouse and skirt by 3.1 Phillip Lim, accompanied by dashing white Nicholas Kirkwood pumps with hexagonal motif.
Scottish actress Sophie Kennedy Clark made an outstanding appearance in a navy blue and black block-striped strapless jumpsuit by Stella McCartney.
Jessica Alba added an element of fun to her 3.1 Phillip Lim look with a cute 'Ka-Boom' sweater, royal blue and black side paneled trousers, a chic satchel and red high heels.

Dainty Dresses
Movie producer Livia Firth dons a delicate black Simone Rocha slip dress that is decorated with a sheer white flower print overlay.
Cara Santana brought on the girly appeal in a flirty strapless BCBG Max Azria dress with tiered mini skirt and scalloped shoes.
Alyssa Miller stunned in an ice blue lace Alessandra Rich gown with sheer maxi skirt and metallic belt. White heels a clutch bag complete her look.
Alexa Chung does simple elegance with ease, pictured in a metallic silver blue Carven crease-effect dress with perspex Chanel perfume bottle bag.

Ashley Madekwe shows off her incredible street style in a plum sheath dress, teamed with a mink pink biker jacket and indigo blue D'Orsay pumps.
Laura Bailey opted for a ladylike look in this pastel pink checked and floral print frock by Roksanda Ilincic, worn with chunky brown wooden platforms. 
Downton Abbey's Joanne Froggart looked engaging in a pale pink asymmetrical dress by Camilla & Marc. A nude clutch and heels complete her outfit.
Diane Kruger enchants in a stunning tulle illusion Valentino gown, bedecked with ornate rose pink embroidery and see-through pockets.

Edgy Elegance
Laura Whitmore has me obsessed with her black & white mixed print ensemble, featuring an animal print shirt with contrast pockets, graphic patterned pants & black accessories.
Nicole Richie does edgy coolness in a crystal studded velvet cropped top and pants by Antonio Berardi, worn with black tri-strap Vivienne Westwood shoes.
Jamie Chung turned heads in this voguish look by BCBG, which boasts a sexy leather bustier, suede pencil skirt and a studded, embroidery-laden biker jacket.
Harley Viera-Newton strikes a stylish pose wearing a Michael Kors black satin corset and lace skirt with nude underlay, a matching jacket slung over her shoulders.

An Evening Affair
Columbian beauty Catalina Sandino Moreno steals the spotlight in this vivid green plunge-neck silk gown with long sleeves and pocketed skirt by Emilio Pucci.
Scarlett Johnsson defines elegance in this beautiful classic black off-the-shoulder gown by Versace, highlighted by dazzling Bvlgari jewels.
Spanish actress Paula Echevarria is radiant in a hot pink Andrew Gn modest maxi gown with cuffed bishop sleeves and a beaded neckline.
Naomi Watts is contoured in an enticing white Versace dress with cross asymmetrical straps, a key-hole cut-out and thigh-high split.
Dakota Fanning stunned in a midnight blue embellished Elie Saab gown with low V-neck & full skirt. I wish she would try out different hairstyles every now and then, more now than then.

Kisse dear

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! This week I have many fav since I really love all the looks you featured! Here my choices: Lily Aldridge (I'm in a "pink moment" at the mo and I'm drooling over the sweater, that shade is amazing!), Jessica Alba (such a cute casual chic combo, the sweater is too cool!), Alyssa Miller (you just know my huge passion for lace so I really love her gown!), Diane Kruger (she is truly enchanting and looks like a princess, too beautiful!), Laura Whitmore (I like how you mixed the prints, nice B&W original!), Dakota Fannina (her gown is simply to die for, she is a queen with it!). Happy weekend my dear, kisses! xo

Francesca. said...

I cannot get over how incredible Dakota Fanning looks in that Elie Saab - it's hard to believe she's the same girl who grew up in the public eye, really, and it's so refreshing to see a child star keep it so classy (especially with all the Miley drama, ha).
I was a little surprised at Scarlett Johansson's choice - whilst it's definitely elegant, she always seems to go for slightly bolder looks, so it was definitely odd to see her so...plain? xx

Diana Ashuayem said...

Love them all, I hard to pick one.

Viktoriya Sener said...

First girl in red is adorable!

A Daft Scots Lass said...

Dakota Fanning looks gorgeous in that blue.

Jackie Harrison said...

Sam! Thank you for the welcome back, it feels good to be back. Hope I can steadily post for a while now that I'm in the swing of things. You're always so good at constantly posting--I wish I could be like you in that aspect! I hate it when I'm even a day off schedule, haha! :)

I love Paula's bright pink dress... it kind of reminds me of a gaudy Indian-esque bathrobe, but I really like it at the same time. It's so familiar but different if that even makes sense. Lovely selection, Sam!! <3

Birdie Liau said...

An evening dress will be my favorite (: it's so elegant and the rest look so perfect too and it's just so hard for me to choose! x

Not Just A Pretty Dress said...

Ok, this edition is full of stunning looks, but I have to say that in recent weeks I've been a fan of Alexa Chung as she is always wearing Carven, a current favourite label! Take care Sam! Caterina
