August In A Rush

Hello folks! Despite not blogging for a while, I had been keeping an eye on the world of fashion and here are my top looks from the month of August.

Marisa Tomei's Preen dress from the Venice Film was wonderful and she did not ruin the look by wearing plain black pumps, but smartly chose those sleek sandals.

SJP opted for a Prabal Gurung sheath on the promo tour for her summer movie, "I Don't Know How She Does It", wearing it with cap toe heels (an odd choice, but that's Sarah Jessica Parker for you!).

Olivia Munn struck gold at a movie premiere in August, by choosing this colour-block, one-shoulder Carolina Herrera cocktail dress and those delicious coral and gold earrings. The slicked back hair added polish to her look, as did that clutch and nude leather peeptoes.

Hollywood favourite Emma Stone played with colour, in this hot pink Christopher Kane dress that had a pleated bottom. She finished the look off with satin lime-green Brian Atwoods and drop earrings.

Kim Kardashian looked great at a music do in a pale, figure-hugging Antonio Berardi gown with a signature cinched in waist.

Lea Michele finally did it - she looked effortlessly great at a Fox beach event in a column dress by Marchesa. Tousled hair and a jewelled Judith Leiber clutch finished off her look.

Zoe Saldana has had a fabulously stylish summer so it's no surprise that she features thrice in this post.  

She worked the coloured leather mini dress trend in a salmon hued Valentino number, accessorising it with ivory earrings, clutch and nude pointy heels.  'Leather' and 'lady-like' don't usually mix but here's an exception!

Her playful Proenza Schouler dress was an instant hit with me - it's Proenza!

Anne Hathaway's Alexander McQueen LBD with gold detail had me reminiscing of her 'Princess Diaries' days and since I'm unashamedly a fan of the series, this was a good thing.
Her attempt at the suit might not have gone down well according to others but I love the quirk she's bringing with the plain ol' tailored blazer and pants.  I think it's those sunnies.

I make a list of the best looks and Diane Kruger isn't present in it? Highly improbable.  Miss Kruger lightened up the Instyle carpet in her menswear-inspired Jason Wu ensemble.  And those shoes.  Those shoes!

Olivia Palermo, an omnipresent member of standard best-dressed lists also makes an appearance in mine, thanks to her all-blue Tibi outfit.

The month saw many a stylish casual looks, but here are my favourites.

Freida Pinto rocked this colour-block Michael Kors dress like no other;  the matching sandals could have been a deal-breaker but they totally work here.  The strategically placed colour blocks add curves to the otherwise petite Freida - smart girl (or stylist).

Zoe Saldana nailed the jumpsuit trend in her silk, army-coloured number.  And those heels are beautiful!
