When Karl Lagerfeld throws a dinner party during Oscars weekend you can bet Hollywood’s finest will come out in full force. And that is exactly what we saw at last night’s Chanel and Charles Finch Pre-Oscar Dinner in Los Angeles.
We spied Keira Knightley on the arm of her hubby James Righton, the leading lady was embracing her baby bump with a white ruffled three-tiered midi dress, that looked as chic as can be. With her newly darkened hair styled into tumbling curls, Keira showed (once again) that she is a pro at pregnancy dressing.
We were wowed by Lily Collins, when she took to the black carpet in a midi halter dress. She earned serious beauty points for colour co-ordination by perfectly matching her red lips and nails. She gave her look an edgy twist by rocking the new-season ‘it’ hairstyle – slicked back roots. Take it from us, this style is easy-peasy, all you need it a wet-look gel like Brylcreem’s Wet Look Gel, £3.55, and a wide-tooth comb, then simply comb it through the roots, et voila!
Next we saw Kristen Stewart also working slicked back hair like a pro, she teamed the wet look with her signature soft smoky eye. On the fashion front she went for a grown-up approach with a tailored pencil skirt and structured black top. Laura Bailey couldn’t have looked anymore different than K-Stew, her feminine flowy skirt and jacket teamed with twin braids and a pop of red lipstick kept her look young and fresh.
January Jones was the ultimate eye-catcher with her printed high-waisted flares. She kept things cool by sporting a bright blue statement eye and styling her hair into a sky-high quiff.
Brit babes, Poppy Delevingne and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked elegant as always, Poppy ticked the boho trend with her maxi skirt, whilst Rosie rocked a tweed mini. Both ladies wore their luscious locks in tousled waves, and Rosie added a shot of scarlet to her look with a swipe of red lippie.
Lily Allen went for a typically bold look with her rainbow wavy hair and colourful shirt. Her mani was weird but wonderful, with a tiny picture of singer, Drake, on her index finger.
With hot looks hitting the red carpet we can’t wait to see what the A-listers pull out of the bag for Oscars tonight, countdown starts now…!
