Pretty in pink! Naomie Harris showed up to the British Academy Film Awards in London this week in a gorgeous pink v-neck gown that highlighted her figure.
You don't see a lot of three-quarter sleeve dresses on the red carpet — these days, it's all about the skin. So when a beautiful, young woman under 40 years old selects one for a high profile event, it makes a statement. Naomie's gown featured a plunging v-neck, a high slit and a waist-cinching black band. The structured collar on the dress adds some extra detail and the mixture of sexy and demure going on here is what really makes this dress a work of art.
The final verdict? Naomie accessorized her look with some translucent black pumps, a patent black clutch and bold jewels. A swept back hairstyle and glowing makeup only added to the glam factor!

To attend the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Scientific and Technical Awards ceremony in Beverly Hills, Kristen Bell selected a black LBD with major detailing.
Kristen looks every bit the classic Hollywood fashion icon, if you ask me. Her LBD mixes classic (with its simple silhouette and color) with modern (thanks to the trendy side cutout), and her glossy curls, glam drop earrings and glowing makeup polish off the look beautifully. Cutouts are incredibly popular this year, and they don't have to look trashy or juvenile; Kristen's subtle one proves that.
The final verdict? I'm more than a bit obsessed with this retro trend that's been popping up all over the red carpet this season. In a world filled with pajama pants and socks and sandals, it's refreshing to see some of Hollywood's leading ladies take things back to the classic days of fashion and beauty.
