This week on the red carpet it has been all about monochrome, flirty flapper dresses and of course some amazing shoes. We take a closer look at what the celebs have been wearing at some of this week’s A-list events, including the InStyle The Best of British Talent Party and the premiere of the Lego Movie.
Sarah Harding showed us how to do head-to-toe prints perfectly at the Instyle event, teaming a black bird-patterned suit with a white shirt featuring a similar print. She added a splash of colour to the monochrome ensemble with a bold slash of red lipstick and a neon orange clutch. We’d have maybe been tempted to ditch the plain black heels in favour of something a bit brighter too…
Elizabeth Banks changed no fewer than four times on Wednesday as she promoted the Lego Movie in New York, but our favourite look was the flirty mini dress she wore to a screening of the film. The periwinkle blue number by David Koma featured a bold, glittering pattern on the top half and a kicked out skirt. She teamed the ensemble with some Jimmy Choo sandals and a Rauwolf clutch.

Naomie Harris brightened up the red carpet at the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards in a stunning pale yellow beaded flapper dress by Naeem Khan. She teamed the Great Gatsby-esque dress with some suitably 20’s-style t-bar silver sandals and a metallic clutch and wore her hair in soft waves to her shoulders.
The prize for most dramatic dress of the week goes to Victoria’s Secret model Lily Aldridge who glided into the amfAR Gala in New York in a futuristic white dress by La Marque. The flowing gown featured a daringly low sweetheart neckline and billowing sleeves, with a full floor length skirt. Letting the dress do the talking, she kept accessories simple, adding just an open-ended Marc Alary choker, which we’ll definitely be searching for a high street version of.
Mollie King looked the epitome of elegance at the Instyle bash in a black and white lace print satin Dolce and Gabbana dress and black court shoes. She matched the dress with a super sleek up do and some barely there make up for a look that was effortlessly perfect and certainly provoked the green eyed monsters in us here at HQ!
