Looks of the Week - 21/12/13

The red carpet has been relatively quiet this time of the year in Tinseltown, so here is the weekly roundup of celebrity style that's more on the casual side.


Urban Edge
Nikki Reed fine-tunes the grunge trend in this sheer printed red and black dress, allied with an Alice + Olivia leather jacket, Bellabag clutch and Timberland boots.
Gwen Stefani leaves us envious of her fabulous red tartan coat, perfectly paired with all black and snazzy Giuseppe Zanotti 'Alien' ankle boots.
Jessica Alba jazzes up her leather skater skirt with a floral printed MinkPink sweater, a bottle green carry bag and knee-high leather boots.
Olivia Palermo yet again proves her fashion prowess in this ingenious outfit featuring a red and black houndstooth coat with a black skirt, two-sided tights, a Louis Vuitton bag & fedora.


Check, Please
Olivia Munn sports a trim navy and red gingham checked dress, covered up by a camel overcoat. The 'Newsroom' star also carries a Prada bag and wears black ankle boots.
Aussie actress Margot Robbie savvily mixes prints in this polished black and white checked Oscar de la Renta dress and leopard print coat by Paule Ka.
Kate Beckinsale threw on a red and black abstract checked blazer by RACHEL Rachel Roy, modishly teamed with a black cami and loosely fit Sam & Levi pants. Her outfit was accented by a Givenchy bag and Jimmy Choo sandals. 
Mollie King was spotted some time back dominating the checked trend in a monochrome gingham coat and leather zipped skirt by Zara, topped off by a fedora and oversized bag.


Winter Luxe
Alexa Chung gave her own unique spin to this pretty guava pink lace Burberry Prorsum dress by adding a grey overcoat and leopard print loafers.
Jennifer Lopez takes a stride in an engaging metallic petal pink Kate Spade skater skirt and top, amping up the swank with silver Gianvito Rossi sandals.
Ashley Tisdale's bohemian themed taupe crochet maxi dress by Free People is toughened up by a black IRO leather biker jacket.


Leather Leggings Trend
Kristin Cavallari chicly stepped out in a striped Joes Jeans top, styled with a black blazer, leather leggings, a quilted Chanel bag, burgundy fedora and Chinese Laundry ankle boots.
Una Healy teamed her slick leather leggings with a cream knitted sweater, statement necklace, black Burberry bag and charcoal grey suede ankle boots.
Rita Ora dons a DKNY ensemble featuring a suave leather biker and black leggings, casually styled with a white tee, chain-link necklace, black pumps and a two-tone bag.
The always stylish Nicole Richie brings her debonair flair to the leather leggings trend in a black quilted pair with a cropped white Mugler blouse and monochrome brogues.



The Lingerie Look
Vanessa Hudgens glamed up in a retro inspired blush pink silk gown by Maria Lucia Hohan, accented with a cream fur stole and satin gloves.
Jamie Chung works the lingerie trend to her advantage in this sleek little black Zara slip dress with lace trims and strappy Jimmy Choo sandals.
Daisy Lowe picked out an ivory slip corset dress with floaty midi skirt and sparkly sandals.


Ladies in Red

Kimberley Walsh went for a modernistic approach to red in a slim-fit scarlet gown with embellished halter neck and belt.
Spanish beauty Mar Saura was radiant in a shimmering Lorenzo Caprile dress with sheer long-sleeved overlay that is ruched at the waist.
Zhang Ziyi made a red haute impression in a this glitzy strapless gown by Armani Privé.

Elle said...

Sam,
Another wonderful collection to peruse! My first vote go to Jessica Alba, for her leather skater skirt and gorgeous intarsia sweater by Mink Pink, But I do have to hand it to Olivia for her choice of legwear: awesome!
Second vote goes to Olvia Mumn for her cool combo of camel and gingham ( and because she looks so much like my daughter!!!). Third choice ( not in order of preference but in the order of how they were presented, is Jamie Chung for wearing Zara, and making it look like a 4K dress, and adding the strappy shoes!
All fabulous!
XX, Elle

How the heck does Gwen look like she does, she's pregnant and you can't even tell that by this photo!! She's the frigging bomb! But Rita Ora in DKNY's my favorite, this outfit is hot and I love her power step - Rihanna watch out.:P (Not really, Rihanna doesn't have to worry about anyone, she's an indisputable queen of style.)

I hope you had a phenomenal weekend, lady, and that you're enjoying your holidays to the max!
