Fashion Roundup

Salma Hayek was busy promoting her movie 'Puss In Boots' all over the place last week.

At the LA premiere, she chose a one-shoulder, textured frock by Bottega Veneta;  I love the shades of colours here as they match really well with Salma's chocolate brown locks!  A gilded clutch and black slingbacks completed her look.

An animal-print Alexander McQueen (Resort 2012) frock with a full skirt was her choice of dress for an NYC screening - I think she looks fab, her curvy figure is accentuated but it doesn't look tacky.  Tousled hair, a bright lip colour and caramel coloured pumps were the finishing touches.

Anne Hathaway wore a baby-blue printed Erdem sheath at the Hollywood Film Awards last week ; it's fresh and feminine.  But you know my complain right? The boring black peeptoes!  Her hair could've looked cuter if it had been put up in a bun too.

Julianne Hough, also an attendee at the event, picked a plunge neck Naeem Khan dress (Spring 2012) with a gold rose design.  As good as she looks, there's something very cheesy about her on the red carpet - maybe the DWTS image is still there...

Amber Heard wore a beautiful, aqua coloured, Roksanda Ilincic dress at the Hollywood Film Awards. The dress had me at the colour.

At the London premiere of 'The Rum Diary', Amber took a colour break and went for an all black Jean Paul Gaultier gown with a bejewelled waist, adding interest via the fuschia lipstick.

Nikki Reed joined the promotion bandwagon for 'Breaking Dawn Part 1'.  The newly-wed actress donned a bright shift, wearing it with interesting suede shoes or 'shooties' (shoe-booties)... get it?

Rebecca Hall walked the red carpet at the London Film Festival in a Marios Schwab frock - I love the sport-chic feel of it and those heels are fab (if not too matchy-matchy, but who needs boring ol' black pumps anyway?).

Eva Longoria gave two sleek looks with neutral heels this past week:

First, in a midnight blue Victoria Beckham (Fall 2010) dress with a draped neck and black belt.

For a TV appearance, Eva opted for a padded shouldered white Antonio Berardi sheath with an interesting neck.

Thandie Newton was one of my favourites this week, in a metallic Giles (Spring 2012) dress with a printed bodice and red belt - she paired the dress with aqua Nicholas Kirkwoods which was unexpected and refreshing!

Jennifer Lopez also surprised me by wearing a girly silhouette in the form of this sky blue Lisa Ho dress, which she wore with a tight top knot and nude peeptoes. 
I wish she'd gone for a softer hairstyle though, the top knot adds a harshness to her face.

American actress/producer, Leelee Sobieski was at the Fashion Group International’s 28th annual Night of Star event, wearing a Jill Sander Fall 2012 outfit.  I would've seen this one on Tilda Swinton but Leelee carries it off pretty well, with a sleek bun and pink lipstick.

Olivia Wilde looked smashing, at a Glamour event, wearing a panelled J Mendel Resort 2012 dress.  Bright pink pumps and gold earrings added interest to her look.

At the TeenNick Halo Awards, Victoria Justice wore a pink Tadashi Shoji number with Giuseppe Zannoti ankle-strap heels.  I find this dress sickly sweet and hate the colour, even the hair and make-up are falling flat.

Emerging actress (and one-to-watch-out-on-the-red-carpet star) Felicity Jones wore a rose-gold ChloĆ© dress at an LA do, with rich purple heels.  A messy fishtail braid and smoky eyes completed her fabulous look.

Lauren Conrad also had two distinct looks this week:

I like the 20's hairstyle she's sporting with the palette adorned BCBG Max Azria mini - retro eyes and pink lips added interest to her look but I wish she'd chosen a different clutch, the oversize one feels out of place.

Her second look consisted of a simple fall print dress which she wore with simple hair and neutral pumps; I would have gone for some rich hued pumps though.
