Fan Bingbing premieres "X-Men: Days of Future Past" in Beijing and New York

Whether X-Men: Days of Future Past proves to be a creative hit (because we know it will be a financial one) or not, we can be grateful to the cinematic franchise for giving us an excuse to obsess over actress Fan Bingbing and her impeccable sense of style.

For the world premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past at the Jacob Javits Center in New York, Chinese actress Fan Bingbing pulled out all the stops, choosing a dramatic creation from the Georges Chakra Fall 2012 Couture collection befitting a true superhero.

Featuring a classic column silhouette, Fan’s Georges Chakra gown earns its couture credentials in its sleeves.

Gracefully falling the length of the dress to pool at the floor, the sleeves are detailed at the shoulders in layers upon layers of delicately placed feathers, the kind of attention seen only in couture garments.

Premiering Days of Future Past on her home turf of Beijing, China, Fan opted for a Zac Posen gown that was as different in style from her Georges Chakra number as possible, although no less stunning.

From the Zac Posen Fall 2014 Collection, Fan’s strapless dress was another decisive choice for the actress, with its winged neckline reminiscent of many a super heroine costume.

That’s where the comic book comparisons end though, as the remainder of Fan’s dress was classic ballgown featuring a full skirt with a high-low hemline.

jennifer-lopez-american-idol-asos-neon-dress

Don’t be fooled by the rocks that she’s got, Jennifer Lopez is still just Jenny from the block, and to prove it she took to the American Idol stage wearing a budget friendly frock from everyone’s favorite e-tailer ASOS.

Jennifer Lopez has made the most of her spot on the American Idol judges panel.

Not only has La Lopez parlayed the gig into a career rebounding move, but she’s also managed to use the Idol platform to introduce a new generation to her signature flashy style.

Jennifer can werq the diva moments with the best of them, like the time she wore Giambattista Valli couture to perform at the 2011 AMAs.

But for every high fashion moment, there’s always a “Jenny from the block” counter-moment to remind us that it’s the attitude that makes J.Lo, J.Lo. Even when she’s wearing Topshop or the like, Jennifer serves like no other.

Who else but Jennifer Lopez could take the above pictured ASOS scallop lace skater dress ($86) and elevate it to such levels of high fashion?

Jennifer wore the neon hued ASOS dress ($86) to a recent Idol taping, and between her styling choices and the batch!tastic attitude she’s serving, one would be hard pressed to believe there was any part of the diva’s ‘fit that cost less than $100.

But yes, it’s true, dolls. Jennifer Lopez has dipped her toe into the fast fashion waters, emerging in a lace topped fit-and-flare skater dress ($86) any fashionista would be happy to own.

Don’t let La Lopez’s goodwill toward high street fashion fool you, though. Check her footwork instead.

Jennifer completed her wallet friendly look with a pair of gorgeous, though probably budget busting in price, Sophia Webster ‘Phoebe’ multi-colored neon heels ($441).

kat-graham-zoe-kravitz-alexander-wang-red-outfit

Call them the ladies in red. Kat Graham from The Vampire Diaries and fellow actress/celebrity offspring Zoe Kravitz both recently stepped out wearing the same T by Alexander Wang ensemble. But who wore it best?

Kat, who’s known for her bold and out there ensembles, kept things relatively tame on this occasion as she made her arrival at the Sprint Sound Sessions in NYC.

Leaving the extensions at home, Kat styled her chin length hair into a sleek style that showcased a flawless face done in a neutral palette.

The fresh faced look was a sign of things to come, as Kat decided to go the minimal route when it came to accessorizing the zipped crop tank top ($245) and matching zipped split skirt ($325) outfit.

A statement necklace, single handcuff bracelet, and Oscar Tiye heels completed Kat’s T by Alexander look.

Before Kat switched up her normally over-the-top style by wearing the pared down A. Wang outfit though, Zoe Kravitz wore it first to the Jimmy Choo Beverly Hills launch of Choo.08°.

Zoe did her fashionista thing, and used the blank canvas of the all red crop top and midi skirt duo to paint a high fashion picture with the addition of select standout accessories.

She was attending a Jimmy Choo event so she wore Jimmy Choo pieces (natch), including an oversized ‘Charlize’ clutch bag ($1,450) and ‘Valdez’ strappy heels ($750).

Topping off Zoe’s look was a white cropped tuxedo jacket from the Barbara Bui Fall 2014 collection that the Divergent star draped casually across her shoulders.

Now that we’ve broken down each starlet’s respective look, and discussed the distinct ways in which they approached styling…

Who wore T by Alexander Wang best?

  • Zoe Kravitz (85%, 11 Votes)
  • Kat Graham (15%, 2 Votes)

Total Voters: 13

holland-roden-elle-women-in-music-erin-fetherston-02

I still haven’t gotten around to viewing MTV’s Teen Wolf, but I’m steadily becoming a fan of series star Holland Roden and her red-carpet style.

erin-fetherston-fall-2014-floral-dress

Like her fellow Hollywood starlets Zendaya Coleman and Ashley Madekwe, Holland has proven she knows how to make the fashionable most of her red-carpet opportunities.

At ELLE Magazine’s 5th Annual Women In Music Concert Celebration, Holland again showed off her great sense of style wearing a floral print frock from the Erin Fetherston Fall 20114 Collection.

Her dress featured the always on trend fit and flare silhouette, long sleeves, and a classic pointed collar.

With her hair upswept into a loose bun, Holland creates a decidedly timeless look that she accessorized with a Kate Spade New York ‘Carroll Park Mini Penelope’ bag (It’s on sale!) and ASOS black and gold heels.

If this ‘fit looks familiar, that’s because Holland wore a very similar floral print against black background look to the 2013 Young Hollywood Awards.

The girl clearly loves her florals, and why shouldn’t she when she wears the motif to such great effect?

emmy-rossum-pacific-design-center-rebecca-taylor-lace-top

It has to be difficult living the celebrity life sometimes. With paparazzi shots a Hollywood reality of life, if you’re a celeb that cares anything about your image you have to always be dressed for a photo op, even if you’re running errands.

It’s these candid moments that separate the celebs who have great stylists from the ones who have great style.

Actress Emmy Rossum, who recently completed a standout season of her hit Showtime series Shameless, is a celeb who stays ready for a candid closeup.

On this occasion Emmy was spotted leaving the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood wearing a Spring appropriate ensemble focused around a pastel blue Rebecca Taylor patch lace top ($350).

Pairing her lace top with with a matching crossbody bag and matching robin’s egg blue ballerina flats, Emmy proved that you can keep it extremely casual and be stylish, too.

taraji-p-henson-from-the-rough-screening

At the Hollywood screening of her latest film From the Rough, actress Taraji P. Henson hopped on the bold stripes trend taking the look to new lengths in a midi-length dress from the Charlotte Ronson Fall 2014 collection.

We’ve seen these bold stripes on the red-carpet before as worn by Taylor Swift. And they even made it onto the small screen during an episode of VH1’s Single Ladies.

But we’ve never seen stripes elevated to such a premiere worthy level.

Taraji’s Charlotte Ronson frock featured a long-sleeve sheer striped overlay with a solid black lining beneath.

The dress was eye catching enough on it’s own, but Taraji completed her ensemble with a couple of boldly hued Jimmy Choo accessories including a pair of ‘Lance’ heeled sandals ($725) and a matching ‘Reese’ clutch ($650).

lupita-nyongo-people-magazine-most-beautiful-cover

There’s no denying the beauty (both inner and outer) of Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, but it’s refreshing to see a beauty like hers celebrated on an international stage.

For their annual Most Beautiful issue, People Magazine has named Lupita Nyong’o this year’s most beautiful woman in the world.

On receiving the accolade from People, Lupita said:

“It was exciting and just a major, major compliment,” adding, “I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen.”

We’re only four months into the year, but 2014 is already Lupita’s to own. With an Academy Award win under her belt, ad campaigns with both Miu Miu and Lancôme Paris, Lupita is changing the way the Hollywood game is played one major achievement at a time.

Now if only we knew what was next on the big screen for this certified star.

Until then check out this behind the scenes video from Lupita’s People cover shoot, and be sure to pick up the mag when it hits newsstands this Friday.

lupita-nyongo-marie-claire-party-giambattista-valli-couture-dress

There was a point during awards season when it seemed as if we were getting amazing red-carpet looks from Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o everyday.

She might have been new to the entertainment scene, but Lupita took to red-carpet fashion like a fish to water, making few (if any) style missteps.

Following her big award win and extended press tour, Lupita has been laying low taking a much deserved break.

lupita-nyongo-marie-claire-may-cover

She’s rightfully earned the time off, but that doesn’t mean her fans haven’t been craving their daily dose of Lupita fashion.

Luckily for us Lupita came out of hiding to attend Marie Claire’s Fresh Faces Party where she served as the belle of the ball, having snagged the mag’s May 2014 cover.

Lupita
was all smiles (as usual) as she mingled with guests and her fellow Marie Claire cover girls Elle Fanning and Kate Mara.

Opting for a fit-and-flare dress silhouette we haven’t seen from her before, Lupita wore a Giambattista Valli frock from the fashion house’s Fall 2013 Couture collection.

The intricately detailed dress featured an array of hand embroidered blue flowers that spread out from the waist into both the bodice and the full circle skirt.

The only quibble to be found with Lupita’s look is her choice of footwear. As great as Lupita’s style is, she seems to almost always get it wrong when it comes to shoes.

This time it’s a pair of silver glitter Christian Louboutin ‘Elisa’ pumps ($625) that let Lupita down. Paired with such an amazing dress, the relatively plain heels leave a lot to be desired.

Nonetheless, the shoes are a minor complaint, and everything from the ankles up is pure perfection.

jourdan-dunn-rupert-sanderson-antonio-berardi-laceup-thigh-high-boots

Yes, hunty! Jourdan Dunn you betta werq those Rupert Sanderson London for Antonio Berardi lace-up thigh high boots like the rent is due!

Model Jourdan Dunn was in attendance at The Vogue Festival 2014, an annual event sponsored by Vogue UK where some of the biggest names in fashion unite for a weekend of interviews and industry discussion.

antonio-berardi-fall-2014-gladiator-boots

On day two of the fest, Jourdan joined fellow models Karlie Kloss, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, and Edie Campbell for a What’s It Really Like to be A Model? panel discussion.

Post talk, Jourdan slipped into a Louis Vuitton Resort 2014 sweater and black leather skirt, before throwing on a light grey jacket from Fay.

It’s a great, supermodel worthy outfit and everything, but what really steals the style show are Jourdan’s Rupert Sanderson London for Antonio Berardi lace-up thigh high black leather boots.

Straight from the Antonio Berardi Fall 2014 Collection, these Rupert Sanderson London designed gladiator boots could easily overwhelm an outfit.

By pairing the attention demanding heels with understated pieces though, Jourdan shows us how to make a flashy piece work with a daytime look.

Gladiator shoes have been on trend for several season now, as have thigh high boots. So it was only a matter of time before the two trends came together to become one.

It might be a little dominatrix-y for some, but Jourdan proves it can werq!
