Week #89 of Celebrity Fashion, Celebrity Style and Celebrity Pics.
Plenty of the divine and the disastrous to check out this week, everyone! Cate Blanchett went without pants, Charlize Theron dressed to hide a recent neck wound and Christina Hendricks managed to be both a best dressed AND a worst dressed contender all in one week. So tell us, which is YOUR favourite and why? And which one do you hate and why?
Christina Hendricks strikes a pose at the launch of Johnnie Walker Platinum Label held at the House of Walker on Wednesday (October 2) in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City.
The 38-year-old Mad Men star, who is an official ambassador for the scotch whiskey company, served as host for the night.
I want to be an official ambassador for an alcohol company too. I wonder how you get that gig?
Christina is wearing a Dita Von Teese dress with Danielle Queller earrings. SHE SHOULD WEAR THIS DRESS EVERYWHERE.
She should also wear higher heels. I know they are uncomfortable after a while but suck it up, everyone else does. It would change her look sooo much.
Christina Hendricks steps out for The Rape Foundation’s Annual Brunch held at the Ron Burkles Green Acres Estate on Sunday (September 29) in Beverly Hills, California.
It’s the sleeves and the neckline. They are awful. Picture a wide shoulder-touching V-neckline with cap sleeves and it would be loads better. The print isn’t doing her any favours either. God she’s beautiful though.
Kerry Washington glams up for the premiere of the third season of her hit show Scandal on Wednesday (October 2) at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City.
The 36-year-old actress took to the red carpet in a custom Prada Fall 2013 ball gown inspired by the Fall 2013 collection.
Her blue gingham design with a ruffled detail lining the placket and a pink waistband makes her look like an extra from Little House on the Prairie.
Cream Christian Louboutin ‘Queue De Pie’ pumps, side-swept curly tresses and a nude lip colour completed her look.
This is something Oprah would wear. That’s a red flag right there.
Emily Deschanel steps out for The Rape Foundation’s Annual Brunch held at the Ron Burkles Green Acres Estate on Sunday (September 29) in Beverly Hills, California.
Emily is wearing an H&M dress, My Delicious shoes, an Edie Parker clutch, Melinda Maria earrings, and a Vita Fede ring.
Gorgeous! She comes close to my favourite this week, purely for the effortless simplicity and grace.
Penelope Cruz shows off her amazing post-baby body in her first red carpet appearance at The Counselor special screening held at the Odeon West End on Thursday (October 3) in London, England.
Penelope and husband Javier Bardem welcomed daughter Luna in July.
The 39-year-old Spanish actress is wearing a Temperley London dress with a navy base and gold metallic French lace overlay, trimmed with scalloped eyelash edges.
A complementary gold embellished clutch, copper eye makeup, nude lips and glossy ombre tresses completed her look.
Cate Blanchett glams up in a sheer dress while attending a special luncheon to celebrate her latest film Blue Jasmine on Thursday (October 3) at Le Cirque in New York City.
The 44-year-old actress wore a sheer black lace Raquel Allegra dress with black Roger Vivier heels.
So I guess she IS going commando downstairs then. Well, that’s a bit awkward…
Cate Blanchett attends a Gala Tribute thrown in her honour held during the 2013 New York Film Festival on Wednesday (October 2) at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City.
The 44-year-old actress wore a very very nude custom-made crinoline-lace Armani Prive frock off-the-shoulder dress with a plunging neckline and scalloped hem..
Matching nude Christian Louboutin Pigalle pumps and Van Cleef & Arpels earrings completed her look.
Okay, the dress itself is STUNNING. It fits her beautifully and is so delicate and pretty.
But I think we’re all over the nude look now. I would have adored it in super-pale blue to bring out her eyes.
Samantha Barks hits the red carpet while attending the 2013 Classic Brit Awards on Wednesday (September 2) at Royal Albert Hall in London, England.
The 23 year old British Les Miserables actress wore a strapless Miu Miu lace bustier dress with a fold-over neckline and leather waistband which she styled with mirrored rose gold metallic Prada sandals.
The rest of her styling included copper eye shadow, barely noticeable lip-gloss and a messy, windswept updo.
I love it all, she looks amazing. I’d totally wear this.
Stacy Keibler attended the Chanel fashion show as part of the Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (October 1) in Paris, France.
The 33-year-old entertainer donned a sheer white Pucci dress and Galliano shoes.
I’m not sure this is how the designer or her stylist envisioned it working out. She knows.
Charlize Theron hit the carpet at the 2013 Variety Power of Women event presented by Lifetime on Friday afternoon (October 4) at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
The South African actress kept her look very simple wearing a cream Stella McCartney Resort 2014 python jacquard dress with an extra tied detail at the halter neckline to cover up an injury. She recently underwent surgery to correct a broken vertebra and has a slight incision mark at the front of her neck. You can just see part of the white surgical tape in the close up image.
Her loose-fitted frock with draped sides and halter ties was styled with Giuseppe Zanotti black pumps featuring a cream toe-cap, a black-and-white heart-print Stella McCartney ‘Falabella’ clutch and pearl earrings.
Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson glam up while attending the 2013 Hammer Museum Gala in the Garden on Saturday evening (October 5) at the museum’s space in Westwood, California.
The 37-year-old actress showcased maximum cleavage in a red off-the-shoulder Jonathan Saunders dress.
The former fashion model accented her sexy frock with a hint of nude bra, scarlet lipstick, a boxy nude clutch, and matching sandals.
Her partner of seven years looked dapper in his three-piece suit, having recently recovered from an ankle injury.
Hate the sandals. And the hair. And I just want to pull up the straps and see what it would look like as a proper dress. So I guess that’s a no from me, huh?
Pacey’s looking swish though.
Jennifer Hudson is white hot while attending the 2013 Variety Power of Women event presented by Lifetime on Friday afternoon (October 4) at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
The 32-year-old singer and actress donned a fitted white Yigal Azrouël Fall 2013 long-sleeve dress featuring an architectural peplum-detail.
Jennifer styled her dress with black Saint Laurent pumps and clutch with a gold accents and a Samsung Galaxy Gear watch.
I love it all. She looks fabulous.
