Thought we were done with the MET ball did you? Well lucky for us some ladies decided to hit the red carpet fashionably late. Giving us yet more fantastical fashions. Enjoy.
By no means am I implying these dresses are identical. However, something about them just strikes me as eerily similar, especially considering they were worn on the same night.
Anne Hathaway stepped out across the pond in Vivienne Westwood for the highly anticipated world premier of Alice in Wonderland. Anne's Vivienne Westwood had the signature VW neckline, a more brownish color and a lovely draped side. She paired it with ruffled Casadei pumps, Stephen Webster jewels and very red lips. Something about her here screams Julia Roberts to me, but what do I know. I kind of love the sort of messed up hair, who knows if it's the rainy London weather or if that was the hair style's intent. Either way it works for me and gives Anne this sexy grown up thing she's lacked a few times on the red carpet.
It's Only Fashion fave Kristen Bell was feeling the Thursday night sparkles all the way on the other side of the world at the Costume Designer's Guild Awards in LA. Kristen chose a golden glistening Stella McCartney for the occasion, perfectly netted with a nude tule disguising the low cut of the dress. Equally as pretty and sparkly as Anne, but with a California girl spin to it. Don't you think?
Just so I can sleep at night knowing I brought at least some of the best from the last week. Let's take a quick look before starting fresh this week.
sorry kids. it's been the craziest week ever - traveling, traveling and yet more traveling. excuses aside, it's time to catch up on some of this week's best dressed ladies. Lots of Young Hollywood glam this week - kind of loving the return to sweet young starlet versus the no underwear wearing/ripped pants thing...
Strapless, short and sexy, that was the name of the fashion game at the Couples Retreat premiere earlier this week. Perennial It's Only Fashion favorite Kristen Bell was the "bell of the ball" (dear lord I'm a nerd) in a little Marchesa number straight from the runways of Spring/Summer 2010. This was one of my favorite looks from the Marchesa presentation, but who doesn't love a little lace and with a chiffon side tail?
Now her co-star Malin Akerman went for a similarly pastel look in a yellow and nude tube dress from Thakoon. While I absolutely completely adore the draped nude skirt, I wish the top had been a more favorable color - the yellow/nude combo seemed a little off for my taste, perhaps black or even navy would have worked better and given us a less springy feel? Rounding out the dress were a pair of nude Aldo pumps. Either way the shape of the dress is incredible and on Ms. Akerman it's absolutely stunning.
Before we dive into Paris Fashion Week mania, Balmain I die for you, let me play catch up from the past few days.
It was basic black all the way for Kristen, Kristin, Rachel and Drew for the last week of September, not to mention an abundance of classy sophistication. Most of which is thanks to uber stylist Nicole Chavez - aka RBils and Kristen Bell.
