Olivia Munn in Thakoon at The Newsroom Season 2 Premiere

Olivia Munn attended the Season 2 premiere of The Newsroom in Hollywood, wearing this sexy satin Thakoon black slip dress featuring lace detailing across the neckline, which I found to be a bit distracting.

She styled her look with a dazzling Thakooon ear-cuff, black heels and a black and gold clutch both by Giuseppe Zanotti.

A sleek up-do, nude lip and bronzed eye added the final touches to her ensemble.

What do you think of this look on Olivia?

Kate Spade's Cinematic Collection Steals The Spotlight

Summer is more than just fun and sun, it's also a time when Hollywood releases it biggest blockbuster movies. All the more reason why this latest collection from Kate Spade steals the spotlight! This cinematic collection is filled with symbolic marquee accessories, including a fabulous Director's Clapboard iPhone 5 case and a showstopping bangle with one of Hollywood's most famous sayings, "Lights, Camera, Action." I am hoping that we will see either the whimsical Cinema City Popcorn Bag or the Cinema City Samira clutch debut on the red carpet very soon. What do you think of this collection? Which items would you add to your wishlist?

Zoe Saldana in Bottega Veneta at Marie Claire's Hollywood Dinner

Zoe attended Marie Claire's Hollywood Dinner at the Fig & Olive restaurant, wearing this relaxed Bottega Veneta ensemble. Her look featured a black and white striped, wrap skirt and paired with a sporty plum colored, sleeveless tank, topped with a black cardigan. 

The actress styled her look with YSL pumps, glittering jewels and Bottega Veneta clutch.

A sleek center-parted, low ponytail and glossy lip provided the finishing touches.

What do you think of Zoe's look? I cannot believe I am saying this, but I kind of wish she had opted for a better shoe. I love the YSL pumps, but I think an open toe or strappy heel would have been better. I also wonder if maybe she should have worn her hair down instead of back?

Teresa Palmer in Zac Posen at the AFI Fest Lincoln Premiere

Teresa attended the AFI Fest premiere of Lincoln in Hollywood wearing this curve-hugging, scarlet Zac Posen dress featuring an open neckline and slashed sleeves.

The Australian actress accessorized her look with a bejeweled Stark clutch, black Jena-Michel Cazabet peep-toes and Melinda Maria's, Single Pyramid Drop Pave Earrings.

A chic up-do with pieces that framed her face and a glossy pink lip provided the finishing touches.

What do you think of this look for Teresa?  I just love the neckline on her, but the shoes bore me a bit. I think I would have preferred something a bit more elegant or strappy heel.

2012 Emmy Awards~ Best Dressed

The 2012 Emmy Awards brought out some unforgettable and regrettable fashions. Some of the biggest names in television came out to celebrate their fellow actors in breathtaking, floor-sweeping and sexy ensembles. There were so many fabulous frocks it was hard to narrow it down to only five spectacular best dressed celebrities.

A few standouts included 30 Rock star, Tina Fey in a strapless, burgundy Vivienne Westwood curve-hugging gown. This is probably the best the funny lady has looked to date. Winner for Lead Actress in a Drama for her role in Homeland, Claire Danes looked radiant in a strapless, marigold Lanvin column gown. Another notable mention, Girls star Allison Williams in an structured, emerald green Oscar de la Renta silk faille gown with peplum details.

I never like doing worst dressed lists just because I know in Hollywood, more often than not, celebrities do not actually pick the dresses they are wearing for red carpet events, they are at the mercy of their stylists and publicists. In order for one to truly look bad on a red carpet the star in question would ultimately have put no effort at all into the look or appeared to be a hot mess such Ke$ha wearing a trash bag or Helena Bonham Carter wearing mismatched shoes picked out by a child. All others we will just call a missed opportunity.

Here are a few missteps from the Emmy's-- Nicole Kidman in Antonio Berardi, this look was blah by many accounts. To sum up -- it was forgettable. Nicole was one of the few glamorous movie stars at the Emmy Awards and she was wearing such an amazing dress, but it falls flat due to not having that "wow" factor in the styling or hair and make-up. Another celebrity I personally love on the red carpet is Mad Men star, January Jones. January wore a dramatic, black Zac Posen structured gown, everything from the neck down was impeccable, however her eye-make up was too much and her hair was unflattering.

Here are our choices for the best dressed celebrities at the 2012 Emmy Awards.

Anna walked the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of Pitch Perfect in this glittering, sleeveless, Zuhair Murad beaded minidress.

The gorgeous actress added glittering Dana Rebecca Designs earrings and cocktail rings, a high shine box clutch and strappy, metallic Brian Atwood heels to her red carpet ensemble.

What do you think of Anna's look? Would you have liked to have seen her hair up to see more the of the high neck?
