Looks of the Week - 09/11/13

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


The Art of Simplicity
Mandy Moore pencils up in a black leather skirt, worn with a pale blue sweater and suave white pointy-toe ankle boots, all by Topshop.
Ashley Madekwe is trendy in this navy and red tartan top and trousers by Topshop, along with with white Jimmy Choo pumps. 
Brooklyn Decker kits up in a classically chic grey pencil skirt & bright red Express jumper.


Walk On By

Alessandra Ambrosio steps out in a modish pair of ankle-grazing leather pants, styled (only as a supermodel can) with a cropped houndstooth printed jersey, furry black vest, Bottega Veneta bow pumps and a Michael Kors bag.
Olivia Palermo teams up two types of stripes in this Tibi peplum jacket and breton striped tee, worn with a pair of skinny jeans, black Oxfords and a red Louis Vuitton bag.
Miranda Kerr throws an oversized Givenchy coat over her white tee, denim skirt and Dior blazer, wrapped up by a studded Valentino bag and Barbara Bui buckled ankle boots.


Little White Dresses
The beautiful Pia Miller wears my favourite look of the week, a quirky and fun little white Johanna Johnson dress with feathered skirt, romantically styled with a chain-headband.
Alexa Chung takes the formal route in a white high-neck tweed Chanel dress with button-up front and panel sleeve detail. Grey pumps & a quilted black Chanel box bag complete her look.
Fellow style icon Poppy Delevingne looked pretty in this enchanting tiered white J'Aton Couture dress with laser-cut embroidery. Flashy gold sandals and a regal jewel encrusted Dolce & Gabbana crown compliment her outfit.


Glamour Gowns

Taylor Swift stole all stares at the CMA Awards in this ravishing scarlet red Elie Saab gown with sweeping skirt and beaded embellishing.  
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley picked this intriguing black chiffon Gucci drop-waist gown with plunging V-neckline and glittering purple beadwork.
Country singer Jana Kramer gives us a demure moment with this delightful floral watercolor printed silk skirt and slinky-fit black long-sleeved top by Theia.


Day at the Races

Beauty queen Jennifer Hawkins showed off two elegant outfits whilst attending an Australian Derby. The former Miss Universe first wore a ladylike red lace one-shouldered dress by Yeojin Bae, with matching heels & fascinator. Second she went for a softer pastel look in this beautiful rose pink Manning Cartell dress with lace skirt, black waistband & Jimmy Choo shoes.
Pageant star Rachael Finch defined refinement in this sleek black number by Aurelio Costarello, styled to perfection with a monochrome clutch, black ankle strap sandals and a beaded head piece.
Laura Dundovic (yet another former Miss Australia), highlighted her tan in this vivid tangerine Aurelio Costarello draped cocktail dress, topped off with an elaborate Kerrie Stanley headpiece and sexy metallic sandals.


Pale in Comparison
Jennifer Nettles was stunning in an ivory Naeem Khan gown with ornate mirrored mosaics. 
Salma Hayek represented Gucci in her finest form, wearing an ice grey asymmetrical gown with ornamented waistband and scattered beadwork.
Candice Swanepoel looked statuesque in this glorious fully embellished gold mermaid halter dress by Zuhair Murad.
Kate Hudson put her abs on display in this blush pink & silver cut-out Gucci dress.
Lucy Hale brings an air of bohemia to the red carpet in this tonal champagne and grey Julien MacDonald dress with high-low hemline and decorative neckline, worn with Ruthie Davis heels.

That's Mandy Moore???? I had to do a double take!! She... Aged.:) I love Jana Kramer's outfit even though it's a first time I've heard of her (it's a good thing you put 'country singer' in front of her name:D) She really does look slinky, especially with that make-up and hair!

Hope you're weekend is treating you nicely, doll.;)

Hi Sam! There is plenty of good style that is really hard to pick up my favs since I lreally ove them all. The first names that came in my minds are Olivia Palermo (always impeccable even with a cosy combo); Miranda Kerr (utterly stylish); Alexa Chung (super chic in Chanel); Taylor Swift (when I saw her the other day I was stunned, she is gorgeous in the Elie Saab gown); Candice (fab in the Zuhair Murad dress, she looks like a goddess!). Happy weekend dear, kisses! xo

Melo Limparfaite said...

Kate Hudson is so sophisticated ! Love it !

Alexandra Zakharova said...

oh, I agree, simplicity is an art:) Sometimes it's really hard to create a simple, minimalist outfit without overloading it with odd garments. Miranda Kerr and Olivia Palermo's outfits are just gorgeous! Lovely post, Sam!

Maddie said...

wow there are so, so many splendid this weeks looks, it is almost impossible to choose a favorite! It is fun seeing the gowns on the red carpet, but I really enjoy seeing the more wearable clothes, something more everyday, like for example, Miranda's look- how cute is her denim mini skirt? :)

Mihaela Pojogu said...

Every look of the art of simplicity I totally prefer. xoxo

Cinnamon and White Chocolate said...

Interesting picks...let me see...
Okay, Mandy, Olivia and Miranda are my absolute favourites concerning casual outfits! they really look awesome, and Olivia and Miranda are true icons of street style :)
And I think Poppy Delevingne is wearing the most interesting dress...I don't know why...but I think it's perfect <3

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

Those "at the races" outfits are my fave for this week, but I still don't get the whole "fascinator" deal. Whatever happened to a plain ole hat?

Hi Sam! I loved the first two sets so much I had to pin them right away! But as far as my favorite, I would say for sure - Alexa Chung. That dress, those shoes, that bag, and even the hair and makeup are perfection. Oh what I would do for some Chanel in my life! haha - Great post as always!
