This week in Fashion...Lea Michele honors Cory Monteith at 2013 Teen Choice Awards, Rachel McAdams gets edgy and more

  Haute Looks!

Rachel McAdams

Rachel McAdams attended a special screening of her latest movie, ‘About Time’ wearing a Saint Laurent Resort dress. This flirty black number featured lots of paneling and draping around the shoulder area. The focal point is a gold halter chain neckline.  The open arm areas and cutouts above the waist give the whole dress a naughty school-girl sort of feel. Babyfaced McAdams rocked this edgy look. She finished the ensemble with a pair of   Black Saint Laurent ‘Janis’ Mary Jane pumps, an Hermes cuff and a beehive hairdo. I think this calls for an Austin Powers moment...“ Oh beehive!”

Hailee Steinfeld

 Hailee Steinfeld always brings a smile to my face and reassures me that there is still hope in the world.  Forever classy and youthful, Hailee wore a House of Holland Resort dress to the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. The dress featured a form fitting bodice in a bright orange hue that was contrasted  and complimented by a ruffled dark blue hem. The starry print on the dress kept the look youthful while the sihoulette classily hugged her figure. The final touch was a pair of tangerine orange Oscar Tiye ‘Malikah’ sandals and an Amanda Pearl grey clutch. 16 years young, I commend her on daring to be different in an age where it’s the norm for teenagers to dress like 30 year old women. Embracing your age is always in style. 

Jenna Ushkowitz

Glee’s Jenna Ushkowitz looked darling in a blue Georgine  ensemble. The blue printed and flared skirt was coupled with a black scoop-neck tank. Bright blue suede Casadei contrast-trim ‘Blade’ pumps and an Ashlyn’D blue sand clutch completed her look.

Priyanka Chopra

Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra was spotted on the red carpet at the premiere of Disney’s ‘Planes’ in Hollywood, California. She wore a beautiful custom fit blush-toned Maya Crispin jumpsuit. A shiny golden metallic belt cinched her waist and brought out the gold zipper accents.  She finished off her look with retro finger waves, a Christian Louboutin ‘Mina’ studded clutch and golden Christian Louboutin heels.

Lea Michele

‘Glee’ star, Lea Michele made her first public appearance since the tragic death of her boyfriend and co-star, Cory Monteith.  In a touching moment during the Teen Choice awards, Lea honored Cory by dedicating her award to him. She tearfully thanked everyone for their love and support throughout this difficult time. She looked beautiful as always in an Oscar de la Renta Resort two-tone pink dress with a bell-shaped skirt. Paying tribute to the late actor, she wore a gold “Cory” necklace, which she held tight while on stage. A pair of Tiffany & Co. earrings and Jimmy Choo ‘Amika’ pink suede pumps with a snakeskin toecap finished her look.

Out and About

Hilary Rhoda

Hilary Rhoda hit the black carpet of the 2013 CFDA Awards in a black and white dress by Helmut Lang. I love everything about this dress. She fninshed off this glam look with a white clutch, yellow earrings, a chunky cuff and strappy black sandals.

Nina Dobrev

 Nina Dobrev was one of the best dressed at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. She turned heads in a J. Mendel ensemble. The paint splattered printed v-neck top and matching slim-fit pants stole the fashion show. She kept this look light and summery with an orange Devi Kroell clutch, and green Dolce & Gabbana sandals.

Ashley Madekwe

Ashley Madekwe also hit the black carpet of the 2013 CFDA Awards. The ‘Revenge’ co-star wore a light blue Cushnie et Ochs dress that featured a front-and-center cut-out accent. She finished off her look with Effy jewels, a Charlotte Olympia clutch and white Christian Louboutin pumps.
