Hollywood Fashion Update: Salma Hayek and Blake Lively Light Up the ‘Savages’ Premiere in California

Blake Lively (left) never ceases to amaze me, the fact that she never uses a stylist yet manages to pick the right outfit and styles herself perfectly each time she steps out on the red carpet is quite commendable. Here she is at the premiere of her latest film ‘Savages’ in a swirly striped beige and black figure accentuating Zuhair Murad, sensibly paired with her Veronica Lake-esque hair-do and on trend red lips, in fact only one other person came close to stealing her fashion thunder on the red carpet Monday evening in Westwood, California and that was her co-star Salma Hayek in a green floor-length-sequins-embellished Gucci number. Fashion on.

SHOWSTOPPERS

She guang Hu Collection
(very Gaga-esque don't you think?)

She guang Hu Collection

She guang Hu Collection
(talk about a little black dress that could...)

She guang Hu Collection
(if I could sum this one up in a sentence it would be called "Gaga meets Elvira, mistress of the dark")

She guang Hu Collection
(the head-dress is a statement on its own, looks like the hair had to be styled into the hat)

She guang Hu Collection
(this one actually reminds of a Falguni and Shane Peacock creation)

She guang Hu Collection
(a sea of head dresses that pop)

Magic Fur Wu Xuekai Collection A/W 2012-2013
(Angelina Jolie has started a revolution with the 'thigh high slit' that inspires you to put your best foot forward, she was certainly not the first to do it but she seems to have started a trend following her now infamous Oscar leg)

MUST SEE LOOKS↓

If there is one thing you should know about the Badgley Mischka fashion house, it is that the designers behind the brand know how to create ensembles to flatter the female figure no matter what shape or size. Their signature looks include clean natural cuts topped with intricate embellishments, classic fluid lines and the simple yet eye-catching silhouette as evident in their magnificent Pre-Fall 2012 collection which went on display for the press on December 13th, 2011 in New York City.
