This Week in Chic: Beyoncé, The 2013 Alvin Ailey Benefit Gala, Angela Simmons, and More!

Happy Thursday Everyone!

December is in full swing and it’s shaping up to be a rather stylish month thus far no?

This week, the ladies went glam at galas, cocktail parties, and on the red carpet, with a sprinkle of fine gentlemen in between.

Let’s get into the week’s ensembles!


Beyoncé grabbed lunch with Jay-Z at Café Gratitude in West Hollywood. Though the couple is going vegan for 22 days, it was quite ironic that King B wore a pizza-inspired, pepperoni print getup. I’m all about a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle diet, so these pieces get my approval. Cute!


Gabrielle Union went for full-on glamour at the 2013 Alvin Ailey Benefit Gala in a strapless forest green Prada gown with a high-slit. Gorgeous!


Mack Wilds gave his two-tone shirt and tie a casual spin with a fitted cap and high-top patent sneakers. He’s a cutie, but a suit would’ve been more fitting for the occasion no?


I’m a stan for Misty Copeland and she kept it simple and chic in a one-shoulder ruffle dress. In a word: stunning.


Taye Diggs gave a simple suit some color and print with a bow tie and gingham shirt. Like Mack, this was a little casual for the night, but nevertheless, I liked the look.


Last at the gala was NBC news anchor Maurice Dubois who wore a three-piece, satin lapel suit. Without the vest, this look would’ve been perfect.


Angela shimmered at DuJour Magazine’s Event Honoring Artist Marc Quinn in MIA. Her gold sequin dress was stunning!


Queen Mother Naomi Campbell showed off her enviable figure at the Foxtel Music Channel Summer Launch in Sydney, Australia. She dared to bare in a Dolce & Gabbana sheer lace gown.


Kelly Rowland was ready for Winter in the Big Apple in a cozy coat, denim, and sneakers.


Anna Dello Russo always opts for quirky accessories and she did just that at Michael Kors’s Milano Cocktail Party in a two-tone frock from his Fall 2013 collection, given more flair with a Piers Atkinson dunce-inspired hat and colorblock sandals. Quite frankly, how can you not love her?


Street style stars Tamu McPherson and Vivian Volpicella were in attendance. Of note, were Tamu’s $1,250 Jimmy Choo Fauna Booties and Vivian’s bold coat, sequin houndstooth skirt, and Gianvito Rossi Bolero Sandals. These ladies excel in the style department and the fête was no exception. Hot!


Closing out the party was Bar Refaeli who looked so fresh and so clean in an all-white lace getup from the brand’s Resort 2014 collection. Simply fab.

Christina Milian and Jas Prince get best view ever at the Beyonce concert
Christina Milian and her man Jas Prince were spied heading to the Beyoncé concert. Ms. Milian sparkled in a sequin moto jacket and coated skinnies. Pretty!


Deepika Padukone surely turned a few heads at the 13th Annual Marrakech Film Festival Opening Ceremony. Isn’t she beautiful?


While out and about in London, Leona Lewis uplifted an all-black ensemble with a houndstooth coat. I’d wear this in a heartbeat!


Zoe Saldana held onto her husband’s arm tightly while on her way into the Mrs. Carter World Tour’s LA concert. She kept it casual in a beige wool coat, denim, and leather boots.


I truly enjoy seeing Jessica Biel on the red carpet and she showed off her toned midriff at The Truth About Emanuel Hollywood Premiere in a $525 All Saints Belmont Jacket, Giambattista Valli crop top and pleated skirt, and a pair of Bionda Castana Daphne Bis pumps. Hot!


Closing out the celeb-filled week was Marion Cotillard who couldn’t be missed at the photocall for Waltz With Monica at the Marrakech Film Festival in a navy and orange stripe gown from Christian Dior’s Fall 2013 Couture collection. I’m usually a sucker for Dior Couture, but this missed the mark in my opinion…

That’s all folks! Whose look impressed you this week?
