This Week In Chic: Joan Smalls, Rita Ora, June Ambrose, and More!

Happy August everyone! We’re into a new month and I’m focused on making the last stretch of summer last!

There were tons of celebrity sightings this week from London to Vegas and there were only a handful of casual looks this week, meaning the ladies got dressed!

Let’s get into this week’s looks shall we?

Supermodel Joan Smalls kept it simple and chic in all-black at the Private Opening of the Omega House at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Is there ever a time when she doesn’t look hot?

Over in Vegas, Rita Ora was spotted on the red carpet at Lavo Nightclub. She paired a pink motorcycle jacket with a crop top and a high-waist fishtail skirt. This look would have been fierce with a blush pink or nude lip. I do like it though!

June Ambrose always wears the hottest prints and she did just that at the Second Annual New Orleans in the Hamptons Benefit Gala. Work June!

At the Warner Music Group Pre-Olympics Party in London, Shingai Shoniwa shut it down in a fringe dress. I love this and I need more of her.

Aisha Tyler went glam at the Total Recall Premiere in Hollywood. She has really impressed me in the past month with her style. I have my eye on her for sure.

I love seeing Sanaa Lathan and she attended the Dannijo & Tucker Tea VIP party in Beverly Hills, California. Lavender is her color!

Regina Hall was also in attendance at the Dannijo & Tucker fête. Where has she been? Her $745 Dannijo Hilde Collar Necklace is super cute, though I’m not sure it gets enough shine with the neckline of her dress.

Another beauty I haven’t seen in awhile…Joy Bryant was on hand at the Kelly Cole Store Grand Opening in LA. Her skin is magnificent!

Tamera Mowry showed off her baby bump in turquoise  at the 2012 Summer TCA Press Tour.

Wherever Tamera goes, Tia isn’t far behind and she shined in cobalt and black. Gorg!

More 2012 Summer TCA Press Tour looks…Eva Marcille was frosted from head to toe. Her hair and makeup are flawless as usual, but I’m not sure how I feel about her brocade dress. What do you think?

Eva’s cast mate and friend, Denyce Lawton, was right alongside her on the red carpet in a printed form-fitting dress.

Garcelle Beauvais looked so chic at the Versailles 73 Screening in LA in a black trench dress, zebra pumps, and a $242 Diane von Furstenberg Tonda Clutch. Hot!

My girl Jessica Alba kept it casual in a white dress and flat gladiator sandals.

Michelle Williams looked glorious in orange and a statement necklace at a taping of BET Bobby Jones Gospel in Washington, D.C.

Nicole Murphy kept it casual with her fiancé Michael Strahan, but uplifted her ensemble with a $2,650 Gucci Bold Top Handle Satchel.

At the wrap party for Soul Man in Studio City, California, Niecy Nash kept it simple in a black jumpsuit.

Rashida Jones is making the promotional rounds this week and she went for femininity in a printed blouse and bandage skirt. Cute! This is a fun change from her all-black ensemble in LA.

Tolula Adeyemi showed off her svelte physique in a white form-fitting dress with cutout detailing at the Johnnie Walker Gold Label Launch Party at Whisky Mist in London. Those booties are a hmm…not sure why she chose them as the finishing touch on what could have been a darling look.

Last, but not least was Vanessa Williams who looked fiery in a red blouse and strappy sandals. I need her secrets and potions!
