Looks of the Week - 07/12/13

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

Party Favours
Brazilian model Ana Beatriz Barros dons a charcoal grey finely checked Louis Vuitton slip dress, with the hemline dipped in sparkly silver sequins.
Lea Michele picked a festively Xmas red lace embellished dress by Dolce & Gabbana.
Alexa Chung keeps her Stella McCartney mini dress under wraps with a smokey grey overcoat, her polished look accented by a checked clutch and ankle-strap Burberry heels. 
Gwyneth Paltrow kept it minimal in a sleek fitting Prada dress with pastel pink and burgundy bodice, and black pleated skirt. Prada sandals complete her outfit.


Red Around the Edges
Is it possible to love Olivia Palermo's style even more? The fashionista wears a red, blue and white tribal striped coat over her red shirt and denim skinny jeans, along with a sassy pair of printed Manolo Blahnik pumps and tan leather backpack.
Gwen Stefani displays her flattering maternity style in a red long-sleeved tunic dress, worn with black tights and knee-high boots.
Lily Collins steps out in a ruffled Givenchy denim skirt, styled with a black tank and blazer, nude scalloped Chloe pumps and a red sling bag.
Nicole Richie chicly throws her tailored red Saint Laurent blazer over a crisp white shirt, wide-legged jeans and Balenciaga bag.


Vanilla Mist

Clémence Poésy jazzed up her pristine white floral lace Valentino gown with neon yellow ballet pumps and a studded clutch. 
Keira Knightley reworks her romantic ivory ruched Chanel wedding dress with sheer long sleeves, adding strappy gold Jimmy Choo sandals.
Bar Rafaeli wore lace head to toe in this posh Michael Kors look with belted waist & bell pants.


Cotton Candy
Laura Bailey was engaging in this metallic rose pink Roksanda Ilincic midi dress, teamed with strappy white Charlotte Olympia sandals.
Amanda Seyfried wears a dusky pink lace Valentino dress with nude pumps.
Hayley Atwell went for a quirkier look in this multi-pastel hued floral printed Holly Fulton dress with embroidered bodice.
Suki Waterhouse looked ravishing in a lilac lace plunge-neck dress by Burberry Prorsum.
Nicola Roberts wears a dreamy petal pink flaired out gown by Halston Heritage.


After Dark


Juana Acosta charmed in this floral bubble peplum gown with mermaid skirt by Oscar de la Renta, adding a red clutch and lip for a pop of colour.
Naomie Harris exuded elegance in a strapless black Alexander McQueen gown with gold embroidered peplum, which is fit to perfection.
Clémence Poésy makes her second appearance this week in a beautiful yellow and black lace embroidered Erdem gown with sheer yoke.


Season's Greetings
Allison Williams was beguiling in a three-quarter sleeved black lace gown with ruffled tiered tulle skirt by Oscar de la Renta.
Noomi Rapace stunned in a fire-engine red embellished bodice dress by Elie Saab Couture, with a matching floor-length cape adding to its regality.
Sienna Miller showed signs of her bohemian style in an alluring silky emerald green spaghetti strap gown by Burberry, adding a bold statement necklace for effect.

There seems to be so much red around at the moment, as you would expect, as it's a rich festive colour. I like Nicola Roberts pretty pink dress which really suits her colouring. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Sam. Once again, thank you for your regular visits to my blog and for your thoughtful comments.

rica marie said...

Ugh, I just love these posts you do. So thorough and so much to look at and take in. I always try to pick just one outfit I REALLLY love and can never narrow it down to three much less one! I am a huge fan of Lea Michele's fashion. She isn't really too well known for it but I think that is what I like about it-- its not too much to where it is show stopping but it is also not boring and rundown. She dresses very age appropriate, and very together, yet very attractive while doing it.

Thanks for sharing, keep doing these posts as they are my absolute favorite from you!!

My favourite look would be Gwyneth Paltrow's simple dress and Sienna Miller's gorgeous green gown.

On your previous post, I hadn't realised you are from S Africa. I'm saddened by Nelson Mandela's passing too. He is such a great inspiration. If only the world would look up to him as an example, there would be so much more peace.

I love how Keira has reworked that dress for her wedding, and at least two other events! Amazing, although us non-celebrities often rewear our clothing, even my formal dresses might only get one wear. Love Alexa as well, so chic! xx
