Best Dressed Of The Week – Rachel McAdams In Zuhair Murad Couture, Zoe Saldana In Valentino, Chris Hemsworth In Dolce & Gabbana & Chadwick Boseman In Giorgio Armani
Rachel McAdams was your runaway winner this week for her gorgeous Zuhair Murad Couture cocktail dress worn to the ‘A Most Wanted Man’ premiere.
You not only loved how beautiful she looked, but also the change in direction.
My favourite was Zoe Saldana. After a so-so showing at Cannes, this look sees her back to her best.
The Valentino gown she wore to the London ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ premiere was soft, pretty and feminine, which was also a change in pace from the directional look she donned to the LA premiere.
When it came to the guys, Chris Hemsworth was your clear winner, looking sharp in his Dolce & Gabbana outfit. I was seduced by the cool-blue Armani suit worn by ‘Get On Up’ actor Chadwick Boseman. Styling and fit were very much on point.
Emma Roberts attended Entertainment Weekly’s annual Comic-Con celebration held at Float at Hard Rock Hotel San Diego on Saturday (July 26) in San Diego, California.
Wearing a classic black and white look in a modern way, the actress donned a black crop top with a Tanya Taylor Fall 2014 white skirt with a black intricate floral lace pattern which plays to the label’s signature feminine style.
Her bubble-gum pink Casadei pumps steal the show here. Do they pep up the look for you or do you find them a distraction?

Jennifer Morrison In Lublu Kira Plastinina & Paule Ka – ‘Bates Motel’ Party, Comic-Con 2014, Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration
Jennifer Morrison donned three looks during Comic-Con 2014 this weekend with varying levels of success.
‘Bates Motel’ Party: Looking at her floral bustier top and high-waist shorts, the outfit doesn’t quite have enough polish or flair for the occasion, especially if you were to stand her alongside Vera Farmiga. Attempting to make it party perfect, Jennifer styled the look with a Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch and black Greymar platform sandals, yet it was a resounding no from me.
‘Once Upon A Time’ Panel: The great thing about Comic-Con is that there is always another event around the corner to turn things around. And so she did, donning a gorgeous off-the-shoulder bold red Lublu ’50s-style dress accented with a red leather bow waistband. While I wish she’d switched up the accessories, this look, which she topped off with a braided updo, is far superior to the first one.
Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration: Opting to wear her Greymar shoes for a third time this weekend, the actress attended this party wearing a Paule Ka Spring 2014 black skirt and crop top accented with royal-blue satin lapels. Once again this look is so very far away in style from the first one, yet I look at all three looks and think, you can do better.
Sarah Paulson In Honor & Lela Rose – Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration
Sarah Paulson attended Entertainment Weekly’s Women Who Kick Ass panel and presentation plus Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration during Comic-Con International 2014 at San Diego Convention Center on Saturday (July 26) in San Diego, California.
Interestingly, both looks feature diamond-shaped mesh detailing adding a dash of athletic influence to her girlie looks.
Entertainment Weekly’s Women Who Kick Ass Panel And Presentation: Sarah’s first look of the day was a summery one from Honor’s Resort 2015 collection featuring a white collared top with a mesh yoke and cuffs laced with a black bow tie and an ivory flounced hem skirt. I go back and forth, up and down with Sarah’s style. This for me is a down moment. Once again, the feeling of too-twee comes in to play.
Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration: Things were much improved for the party, where she donned a full mesh look from the Lela Rose Resort 2015 collection featuring a lavender top and black skirt – both layered, yet revealing plenty of skin. Sarah opted to once again keep her styling minimal with a black version of the same Louboutins she wore earlier in the day and a silver clutch.
Do you like either look?

Kat Graham In Cut25 By Yigal Azrouël and Bec & Bridge – Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration
Like many celebs who attended Comic-Con 2014 this weekend in San Diego, California, Kat Graham donned two looks. Noticeably, both were in dark hues, which is unlike the colour-loving, daring starlet.
‘The Vampires Diaries’ Press Line: On Saturday (July 26) the actress wore a blue and black print neoprene top-and-trouser look which made me instantly think of scuba gear. Her mannish look was styled with black, orange and purple colour-block T-bar Jerome C. Rousseau ‘Dragonette’ pumps and a black clutch.
Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration: Kat opted to show off a little more skin for her second look, donning a Bec & Bridge navy crop top and below-the-knee pencil skirt styled with Jimmy Choo accessories including a pop of colour via her red pumps.

Elizabeth Olsen attended Marvel’s Hall H Press Line for ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ during Comic-Con International 2014 held at the San Diego Convention Center on Saturday (July 26) in San Diego, California.
Wearing a grey leather dress from her sisters’ high-end label, The Row, I don’t think it’s an exaggeration for me to say that this is my least favourite look from Elizabeth.
Season-appropriateness aside, I don’t find the look flattering or at all exciting; the colour is drab and the Prada sandals uninspired.
All Saints Leather Vest c/o, Splendid Shirt, Love & Lemons Skirt, Zara Heels, Vintage Clutch, Celine Sunglasses, Topshop 'Rio Rio' Lipstick There's no question that I'm a girly-girl through and through, but when I spotted this oversized All Saints leather vest, I uncharacteristically made a beeline for it. I took it home with me, and pretty characteristically decided to wear it with a lace cream pencil skirt that softened the tough leather and hardware.
When you arrange a trip with fashion bloggers, you know shopping MUST be part of the itinerary. It’s a given. It’s practically a crime if you don’t let us shop, especially when we’re at one of the most fashionable cities in the world! So come our third day in Korea, we were finally given the chance […]

Jessica Alba In Tanya Taylor & Zimmermann – Comic-Con 2014: ‘SinCity: A Dame To Kill For’ Experience
The actress was radiant in a Tanya Taylor cropped black bandeau top and a billowing Zimmerman printed skirt with mesh paneling.
She accessorized with mirrored and tasseled Kotur ‘Guzel’ heels, which were an amusingly chic twist on the standard sandal, alongside a Tory Burch clutch, a Porter Lyons ‘Mississippi’ snake ring and Maria Black jewels.
Side-swept locks and a smoky eye completed her Comic-Con statement.
Elle Fanning was among the starlets at Comic-Con 2014 in San Diego, where she took a vibrant spin down the carpet at the panel for ‘The Boxtrolls’ on Saturday (July 26).
After donning a host of fairytale-princess looks during her ‘Maleficent’ press tour, the young starlet was obviously ready to re-embrace a slightly funkier style direction—at least for now.
Neon was the name of the game here with her bright coral Christopher Kane Resort 2015 frock, crafted entirely of floral lace appliques, worn with matching pumps.
The sunny marigold shade of her nails was reflected in her yellow eyeliner. I don’t love the makeup, but with Elle’s youthful exuberance, no better time than now to rock every fun shade of the rainbow.
Cate Blanchett In Fausto Puglisi – ‘The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies’ Comic-Con 2014 Press Line
Cate Blanchett was at ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ press line, hosted at the Hilton Bayfront hotel during Comic-Con International 2014 in San Diego, California on Saturday (July 26).
I have to say that I could barely believe my eyes when I saw Cate; it’s like some particularly heinous comic-book villains stole her sophisticated style.
This Fausto Puglisi Resort 2015 dress, worn with Roger Vivier black pumps, was many shades of wrong—from the pink to the pleats, and from the boxy T-shirt sleeves to the satin detailing.
Better to not dwell on what could be her most disappointing look ever.
I have complete faith that Cate will be recovered in no time and back to her regal red-carpet ways.

Nina Dobrev In J. Mendel, Naeem Khan & Michael Kors – Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration
Nina Dobrev was also in the star-studded mix at Comic-Con International 2014 in San Diego, California, making no fewer than four appearances during the weekend.
20th Century Fox Press Line: She kick-started her Comic-Con style on Friday with a J. Mendel Resort 2015 ensemble, consisting of a sheer white blouse with black necktie and a cerulean blue fit-and-flare skirt. Styled with a large Fendi dual-tone silver and black tote bag, along with Armani pumps and rose-gold safety-pin earrings, the effect was schoolgirl-sweet mixed with sassy edge.
CraveOnline Presents: Crave Conquers the Con: Later that day, ‘The Vampire Diaries’ starlet was on the blue carpet at the USS Midway. Rocking the same voluminous waves, she changed into a bright Naaem Khan Spring 2014 dress with painterly, multi-colour stripes that were only emboldened by her Oscar Tiye yellow pumps.
‘The Vampire Diaries’ Press Line: Back at the Hilton Bayfront hotel on Saturday, the actress wore my favourite look of the four. Again donning a Naeem Khan design, the top-and-shorts combo hailed from the Resort 2015 collection. The crisp blue and white print, inspired by traditional Mexican embroidery, was a breath of fresh air and the hot-pink Kurt Geiger pumps only solidified my love of the ensemble.
Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration: Finishing out the Comic-Con weekend at the Hard Rock hotel, she wore a floral-printed ruffle dress and belt from Michael Kors’ Resort 2015 collection paired with Ferragamo black grommet-accented shoes and David Yurman earrings. Perhaps it was the lacklustre hair and makeup, but this look just didn’t have the spark it needed.

Gwendoline Christie In Giles & Peter Pilotto – Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration
Gwendoline Christie was also in attendance at Comic-Con 2014 in San Diego, California, where she made two completely different style statements over the weekend.
‘Game of Thrones’ Panel: At Friday’s event at the San Diego Convention Center, the British actress again wore one of her favourite designers, Giles Deacon, flaunting a Giles Resort 2015 A-line frock—sans the lookbook peplum. The indigo tie-dyed print followed suit with the whimsical punchiness of the collection, but Gwendoline made the dress all her own via glam, old-Hollywood styling. With her platinum-blonde retro waves, coral-red lip and metallic gold sandals, she was nothing short of a mod Marilyn Monroe.
Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration: For Saturday’s party at the Hard Rock Hotel, she switched out of her Marilyn-esque mood, instead cladding her statuesque frame in a Peter Pilotto Fall 2014 gem-embellished top and skirt, which was made appropriate for summer with the removal of the sleeves. She and Vera Farmiga were evidently drinking from the same Pilotto Kool-Aid, yet this pink hue wouldn’t be my first choice for Gwendoline.

Rosario Dawson attended the ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ panel during Comic-Con International 2014 on Saturday (July 26) at the San Diego Convention Center in California.
Flaunting simple yet chic styling, she wore a dark-green Narciso Rodriguez fitted dress with a loose cape-style back—for that sophisticated, superhero touch, of course.
Colour-block white and black sandals and a light smattering of jewels completed the look. Her still half-shaven ’do obviously provided the edginess here—business on one side, party on the other.
Sophie Turner In Tata Naka & Matthew Williamson – Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration
Sophie Turner attended Comic-Con 2014 in San Diego, California, where the ‘Game of Thrones’ actress opted for two playful looks over the weekend.
‘Game of Thrones’ Panel: Alphabet soup was the name of her style game on Friday. Her multi-coloured Tata Naka Spring 2014 jumpsuit spoke volumes with its bold, graphic letter prints. Fellow young starlet Maisie Williams, who plays her sister on the show, couldn’t have been more differently dressed in a charming Alice + Olivia textured, metallic-bronze shift dress, paired with black furry sandals.
Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration: Wearing the same black heels from the day before, Sophie switched up the rest of her look in a Matthew Williamson Fall 2014 black frock featuring a swatch of baby-blue printed paneling at the skirt. I keep wondering if that bright red lip may have been better suited to her jumpsuit, though.
