At last night's Elle Women in Hollywood event, I saw many great looks on the red carpet, but these four stood out to me.
First, I love the simplicity and minimalism displayed in Lea Michele's Calvin Klein dress. Ditto for Ashley Madekwe in her Thakoon Resort (2014) dress. Both ladies kept the accessories to a minimum, and wore chic sandals. I would easily wear either of these looks. I love Lea's slick back look, however, I kind of wish they went for a more orangey lip, or even a flush of pink! The nude lip makes her seem kind of washed out, but, she still looks really pretty!Emmy Rossum and Marion Cotillard looked rather daring in their Ellie Saab and Christian Dior dress, respectively. A lot of women last night wore white, so, Emmy's punch of color was much-needed! The beadwork on this dress is really stunning, not overdone, and very elegant.
Marion continues to be one of my favorite ladies on the red carpet. She always has on something that is fresh, and frankly, a tad avant garde. The French eat avant garde for breakfast, apparently. Here, she's taken something that .0001% of women could never get away with, and made it look so feminine, and regal. I love the cape detail on the back of the dress, and even the normally annoying brocade fabric looks really lovely. I love women who are fearless, especially in fashion!
Anyway, those are my four picks. What other ladies stood out to you? I'd love to hear your thoughts on last night's fashion choices!
