Best Dressed: Blacks & Brights

By Linah Hashmi


I’m a sucker for black outfits and can never have enough of them in my wardrobe. So obviously this week my best dressed picks started off with these women in black…

I don’t know what was hotter – this sexy Tom Ford number that Jennifer Aniston wore at the 2012 LACMA gala in LA or her equally sexy accessory, and no I’m not talking about her clutch! ; )

Jennifer Lopez was oozing sex appeal in this beautiful Lanvin lace one shoulder gown! Enough said!

Oh Salma Hayek! This sexy seductress had everyone gasping for breath at the LACMA 2012 gala in an asymmetric Gucci gown and Harry Winston diamonds worth more than $1 million! I also loved her hair up in a bun.  And that perfect body to go with it (would you look at those toned arms) completed the look!  Gorgeous.

How adorable was Marion Cotillard in this Dior tulle strapless dress that she paired with those pointy white pumps at the Women of the Year awards. She finished her look with Chopard diamonds. So flirty yet so chic!

L’Wrenn Scott looked like a diva in one of her own designs. Loved this satin mermaid gown with a sheer neckline.

BUT, I was equally crushing over these bright colored numbers too…


Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore a bright green Gucci gown with frills in the back at the LACMA 2012 gala. The brit beauty, who’s impeccable style makes her one of my favourite style icons, paired the gown with the label’s ankle-strap white sandals and looked flaw-free! And landed on everyone’s best dressed list!

Another brit beauty, Emily blunt looked ravishing in an orange halter neck Alexander McQueen gown at Harper’s BAZAAR UK ‘Women of the Year’ Awards! I wouldn’t dare wear a bright orange gown but seeing this I might just convert. Her black satin clutch also by Alexander McQueen was the perfect accessory!

Also at the LACMA gala, Amy Adams stunned in a strapless yellow Gucci gown with an embroidered waist band. I’m also obsessed with the nude studded Gucci clutch that Salma Hayek also carried in black! One of the hottest accessories this season!

Feathers and drama! I loved this fun, flirty Matthew Williamson minidress that Jacuetta Heeler wore to the Harper’s BAZAAR UK event in London.

What better way to end this best dressed list with another stunning Rosie Huntington-Whiteley look. This time in a Burberry bustier cocktail dress and cap-toe pumps at the label’s Hong Kong flagship store opening.


Yes. I’m definitely adding color to my black obsessed wardrobe!
