Top of the twinklers was Freida Pinto, who lit up the red carpet in a goddess-like Antonio Berardi gown for the premiere of her new film ‘Immortals’ in LA last week. Paired with a simple plaited updo and Chopard jewels, the blush dress was an apt choice for the premiere.
But her competition in the goddess stakes this week comes via Gwyneth Paltrow and Zoe Saldana, who both employed the celestial powers of Elie Saab for their moment in the spotlight. Gwyneth went full-on glamazon in a split-to-the-naval emerald gown at the 2011 Bambi Awards in Germany on Wednesday, while Zoe’s take was more demure, in a t-shirt cut Kelly Green gown with a skinny belt to define her minuscule waist. But which is your favourite?
And from green goddesses to golden girls, Cara Delevingne was the perfectly punky party girl in top to toe Burberry at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards earlier this week. Selena Gomez also brought on the bling for her turn on stage presenting the MTV EMA’s - our favourite of her eight looks from the night was the spangly pair of Topshop hotpants she wore together with a vivid yellow top, perfectly setting off two of her best assets: her legs and her tumbling black hair.
But not everyone this week appealed purely to our magpie sensibilities: Jessica Alba was divine in Armani; Victoria’s Secret model Julia Stegner brought a touch of nonchalance to the glamathon that was the Victoria’s Secret after party; Dree Hemingway bewitched in a voluminous black Dior gown made to reproduce one worn by Marilyn Monroe. And finally, Coco Rocha was pretty as a picture in jewel-toned Dior at the ‘Picturing Marilyn’ exhibition opening.
