Rosario Dawson is, alas, one of the stylish celebs whom we don’t see nearly enough on the red carpet. But when she does emerge? She kills it. Exhibit A: her latest look, from the New York premiere of her new movie, “Trance,” which is an exercise in Style Superstar-worthy perfection.
Rosario’s statuesque silhouette was beautifully flattered by this sophisticated Bottega Veneta dress, with blouson sleeves, a leather belt and an asymmetrical zip accent that keeps the pretty pink look from veering into twee territory. The dusty rose shade is great on her, too—as are the mauve patent pumps that finish off the look, an unexpected touch that’s also a great example of Rosario’s uncanny style intuition. Most people would’ve gone with a boring neutral shoe, but not our Superstar!
Meanwhile, another rare celeb sighting: Emilia Clarke made an appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” this week to promote both her Broadway turn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and the return of “Game of Thrones” to HBO… and also, unfortunately, to provide a great example of how the wrong lipstick can ruin even the prettiest outfit. The warm beige color of this dress isn’t ideal for Emilia to begin with (it’s a shade too matchy with her hair and skin; we’d prefer it with Daenerys Targaryen’s white-blonde dye job), but the tomato-colored lips are extra not-good with such a neutral look. Honestly, the Mother of Dragons should know better.
What do you think of this week’s fashion picks?
