British designers continue to go from strength to strength on the other side of the pond. Mary Katrantzou and Peter Pilotto are increasingly popping up on the red carpet in Hollywood but Antonio Berardi is definitely leading the pack when it comes to dressing celebrities. Nicole Richie wears his designs and so does Elizabeth Banks but over the weekend it was Ashley Greene's turn.
The actress sported one of the fitted white bandage style dresses from Berardi's resort 2013 collection to attend the third annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic event and the outfit suits her and works for the occasion. To finish the look off, she teamed the dress with a pair of nude Giuseppe Zanotti pumps, which don't work particularly well but aren't too bad considering the off-white panels on the dress.
Penelope Cruz knows how to make a statement on the red carpet. Usually the actress is all about drama but to attend the 60th San Seabstian Film Festival she was appropriately understated.
The silk red vintage Gianni Versace strapless gown looks chic and classic and not fussy and the pleat details helps add that little bit extra. To finish off the look, Cruz teamed the dress with a pair of red satin Salvatore Ferragamo sandals, which could easily have caused to her to blend into the red carpet, but strangely works.
Kerry Washington has always been one of my favourite red carpet goers. She always manages to look incredibly chic and fresh but recently she's been on the down low. Last night, though, she made a welcomed return to the red carpet at the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
For the occasion, she chose this floor length shimmering sequin Vivienne Westwood couture gown with a subtle drape and it works. The metallic works beautifully against her skin and he simple drop down earrings and pulled back hair finish the look off perfectly.
When Anne Hathaway unveiled her new short hair I wasn't completely convinced but this week I was completely won over. The actress looked stunning in this autumnal dress from the Fall 2012 Valentino couture collection that she wore to attend the 2012 New York City Ballet Gala. Long hair would have detracted from the detail in the dress and without doubt, the shorter style shows just how beautiful her face looks.
Jessica Chastain has found a look that really works for her. Dresses are her forte and nobody quite does easy, sophisticated styles quite like Roksanda Ilincic.
This lilac dress with a subtle drape, then, by the designer is the perfect choice for her. The actress wore the dress to attend the Broadway opening for 'If There Is I Haven't Found It' and finished the look of with a classic pair of gold earrings and nude Christian Louboutin 'Pigalle Plato' pumps.
Sarah Jessica Parker has been a friend of Valentino Garavani for a long time so it was no surprise when she turned up on the red carpet for the 2012 New York City Ballet Gala hosted by the designer.
For the occassion the actress wore a Fall 2012 Valentino couture gown under a cape. While I know I've already criticised Karolina Kurkova's Valentino cape look, for some reason this actually works. Admittedly the look isn't for everyone but SJP is one woman that can pull it off.
Olivia Palermo flew from the Burberry show straight to New York this week to attend the 2012 Brazil Foundation Gala party help at the American Museum of National History and as always, she nailed it.
Beauty wise, the reality star went for the centre parting tied back look that she's been sporting a lot recently and opted for a beautiful floral embroidered sheer bell sleeved dress from the Spring 2012 Valentino collection.
I challenge you to remember a red carpet look worn by Shenae Grimes or at least remember one for the right reasons. Before you think I'm being too harsh, have a think and you'll see what I'm talking about.
While I don't have anything against the actress, her looks don't leave a lasting impression and this one is a case in point. Grimes wore the lace top and Style Stalker skater skirt to attend Entertainment Weekly's pre-Emmy party and sadly, it just doesn't hit the mark.
Over the past few weeks Hollywood's older women haven't been on their best form. All I need to say is Nicole Kidman and V magazine and you should know where I'm going with that one, but Sharon Stone brought it all back on a good footing yesterday.
The actress chose this black Roberto Cavalli gown to attend the amfAR gala in Milan, a style that the designer reportedly designed especially for her.The cleavage bearing cut out on the front could easily have made this look steer down the mutton dressed as lamb route but Stone pulls it off.
The House of Holland show is always a big celebrity attraction and was this season was no different. The FROW had all of the usual faces like Pixie Gledof, Leigh Lezark and Alexa Chung but this season Kelly Osborne attended too. The red leather halter neck dress that she wore to attend the show doesn't look particularly good in photos but in person, she actually managed to pull it off.
