Last Night's Best Dressed: snazzy!

26 August 2010

In recent months, Grazia Daily has seen so many pictures of Jessica Alba playing around with her adorable daughter dressed in casual cut-offs, floaty vests and stompy boots that we’d almost forgotten that on the red carpet, she can look like THIS:

The mesmerised stare on the bloke’s face behind her pretty much says it all – and we’re sure it’s not just those glitzy zigzags that have him hypnotised. Truth be told, we’ve spent at least the last 4 minutes enviously ogling the bronzed skin, those mile-long legs, that mega-watt smile... And what with that dazzling metallic mini-dress complete with power shoulders, and those bondage-style heels, the message is loud and clear: Jess is still a total knockout. Hot, hottie, HOT!

And this is one girl who knows how to make an entrance. Kicking off the promotional duties of her new film ‘Machete’, the 29-year-old actress arrived at the world premiere in Los Angeles last night in a bright orange low rider car, flanked by her two burly bodyguards. So if this little number is anything to go by, we can’t wait to see her stealing the spotlight in an array of corkers on the rest of the tour... Stay tuned, peeps!

From the LA red carpet to the warm climes of St Tropez, it’s Beyonce doing her thang in a concoction of leopard, ikat, and African prints. Despite the fact there is A LOT going on here (c’mon Bey, you’re on a pier, not a disco ball), Style Hunter wisely pointed out yesterday that a mismatch of prints shouldn’t work but when they’re so perfectly co-ordinated and executed with such aplomb, the result is quirky cool. All that gangsta bling certainly helps too, no? And although her gold shorts look a tinsy bit too tight, we are loving that Dries Van Noten embellished shirt, casually thrown on as the perfect beach cover-up. Hubby Z has got in on the act too with his, er, floral print shorts... What a snazzy pair they make!

Isabel Lucas is fast becoming our new fashion fixation. Here she is rocking that signature hippy vibe of hers in a bohemian-esque flippy skirt, pretty white blouse and cute-as-can-be purse. Her scuffed-up elf-like booties, that scrappy headband and a neck-full of beads are the finishing touches to cement her dreamy ‘70s style. We want more!

We conclude with our trusty Best Dresser, Alexa Chung. She was living it up at the swanky Mulberry party at Tanjong Beach Club in Singapore last night where the VIP's were transported to the venue in London cabs (ace!). And keeping the Brit spirit alive, La Chung donned this laid-back outfit perfect for taking to the decks. And we say it’s a rather lovely surprise to see the superstar DJ in such a mannish ensemble consisting of a white shirt and Mulberry’s amazing ankle length trousers from the A/W ‘10 collection. In fact, it’s reminding us of that brilliant Phillip Lim tuxedo she rocked at this year’s Met Ball, remember? Yep, this is one surefire way to be a true style maverick. Bravo!

But before we go, we just had to share this tasty titbit with you. The party guests were treated to, get this, mini  cupcakes in the shape of Alexa bags! How cute is that?! Bring us one back please, gals...
