Weekend Hightlights – Lady Tuxes, Sparkly Dresses, Pockets and Bill Murray

9 Feb

The glitzy awards season extravaganza dominated the weekend with Friday’s NAACP Image awards, followed by pre-BAFTA parties on Saturday (we will have a separate BAFTA show post), the DGA awards and the Grammys. One big trend is a personal favorite and ultimate clothing wish list item; the lady tux.

Anna KendrickAnna Kendrick slays in a Band of Outsiders lady tux (sans shirt) and she keeps it simple pairing it with black stilettos. This is a super chic and sexy take on menswear and while my dream version looks more like Tina Fey at the Golden Globes (mostly because I fear the falling out) Kendrick is easily one of the best dressed stars over this red carpet heavy weekend.

HaimDanielle Haim is another suit wearing vision in Stella McCartney and making up for the crochet Chloé ensemble – I know I love 70s fashion but eh not feeling this – Este is wearing. Este does get the all important bonus red lipstick points and at least they aren’t all wearing very similar outfits. The monochromatic balance in this group shot is working like a charm.

January Jones and Bill MurrayShowing how a lady tux can cause a stir is January Jones in Sandro at the DGA Awards; it’s all in the plunge and I love this spin on menswear. Oh hey Bill Murray looking delightful and like he’s come straight from a Wes Anderson movie set.

Reese WitherspoonPre-BAFTA party sparkles for Reese Witherspoon and I’m definitely into the bell shaped sleeves which elevate this from being just another cute shimmery mini dress.

Felicity JonesPockets! Felicity Jones has done many of these events in the past few months and I think it is fine to say she is looking rather tired by now. Still amazing, but tired at the BAFTA nominee pre-party. And this is why this Christian Dior Couture dress is ideal because it is simple chic and it also plays on the tuxedo; by now you know how much I like this style.
