#RedCarpetRoundup (28th June-7th July): Naomi Campbell, Kerry Washington, Zainab Balogun & More!

The transition from June to July kicked off with celebrities making fabulous appearances in stylish ensembles – and we at SPICE were watching.

From the 2014 BET Awards in the US to the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party in London and the Fayrouz L’Original Expression Show in Lagos, we bring you the best that hit the red carpets with our top 10 looks;

Naomi Campbell attended the annual Serpentine Gallery Summer Party in a Givenchy Pre-Fall 2014 fully sequined one-sleeve draped red dress styled with rose-gold sandals and a bold red lip.
Red has been pretty key on the carpets recently and our first lust-worthy look comes from Naomi Campbell, who attended the annual Serpentine Gallery Summer Party in a Givenchy Pre-Fall’14 fully-sequined dress, looking as stunning as you’d expect from a supermodel. We love the one-sleeve draped design of the dress plus the rose-gold sandals and bold lips it was accessorised with. #Wow.

Gemma Arterton was also a lady in red while attending the annual Serpentine Gallery Summer Party held at The Serpentine Gallery on Tuesday (July 1) in London, England. The British actress wore a Prabal Gurung Resort 2015 two-piece red textured jacquard look featuring a cropped top and asymmetrical flounced tulip skirt. Adding yet more flair to her summery outfit, she styled the look with red patent sandals with a ribbon ankle tie. Blown-out tresses, neutral makeup and chandelier earrings completed her look. This was by far my favourite from this event.
British actress Gemma Arterton was another a lady in red at the same event, wearing  a Prabal Gurung Resort’15 two-piece with red jacquard detailing. Featuring a cropped top and asymmetrical flounced tulip skirt, her all-red ensemble was completed by patent sandals with a cute ribbon tie, and we just love how chic the overall look is. Just lovely.

Zendaya Coleman made a splash on the red carpet of the Pre-BET Awards Dinner on Saturday (June 28) at Milk Studios in Hollywood, California. The young starlet continued to showcase her bold approach to dressing in a Peter Pilotto Spring 2014 asymmetrical frock rendered in a colourful, kaleidoscope-like engineered print. The dress also featured the sculpted, full-skirt silhouette that was a hallmark of the label’s spring collection. Not content to let the dress steal all the attention, Zendaya accessorized with stacks and stacks of golden double-wrist bangles, along with a rather gigantic pair of hoop earrings. She carried it off, but I would likely have been just as content if she had left well enough alone with her matte red lip and matching pumps.
Singer Zendaya Coleman jumped onto the Pre-BET Awards Dinner on June 28th in Hollywood,
rocking a bold Peter Pilotto Spring’14 dress that looked just delicious on her. The asymmetrical look was accessorised with stacks of gold bangles, hoop earrings and a matte red lip with matching pointed pumps – and we think she looked just perfect.

Dolce & Gabbana dress and Casadei heels
On the BET Awards red carpet on June 29th, Hollywood actress and new mum, Kerry Washington stunned in a floral Dolce & Gabbana dress with white Casadei heels. We love how fresh (despite the probable lack of sleep) and radiant Ms Washington looks in this outfit, and salute her for showing off her slim post-baby figure. #Flawless.

Cara Delevingne attended the annual Serpentine Galley Summer Party held at The Serpentine Gallery on Tuesday (July 1) in London, England. Following yesterday’s release of the Mulberry Fall 2014 ad campaign featuring the British model, I’m not surprised she was repping the brand from head-to-toe. Cara wore a black Mulberry Spring 2014 sleeveless keyhole column dress styled with the other star of the Fall 2014 ad campaign; the Mulberry ‘ Cara Delevingne’ bag
Doing it in chic noir, supermodel Cara Delevingne, who also stepped out for the Serpentine Galley Summer Party, repped Mulberry from head-to-toe with a black Mulberry Spring’14 sleeveless, keyhole column dress, styled with the brand’s “Cara Delevingne” bag, of course. And doesn’t she look amazing? It’s to be expected, but still..

For her breakfast with Ituen Basi at the Wheatbaker Hotel on Thursday, 3rd July, media personality Tracy Nwapa paired her pencil skirt with a black halter neck and killer pointy toes with straps
For her breakfast with Ituen Basi at the Wheatbaker Hotel on Thursday, 3rd July, media personality Tracy Nwapa paired her printed pencil skirt with a black halter neck and killer pointy heels with straps that matched the pattern of her skirt. We love the attention to detail and the daring colours of the look.

And actress Naomie Harris attended a launch party celebrating Virgin Atlantic’s new Vivienne Westwood uniform collection, wearing, well, Vivienne Westwood, of course! Naomie styled the Spring'14 Gold Label dress with a black Rauwolf Clutch and pretty pink Casadei pumps, which stole the show and our hearts, instantly.

Over at the Fayrouz L’Original Expression Show held at the Oriental Hotel, Lagos on July 6th, TV presenter Zainab Balogun kept it simple in CLAN. The muted palette showed off Ms Balogun’s beautiful complexion and the classic points, halter neck style and sash detail adds an elegance that suits her to a tee.

And inside, OAP Mercy Ajisafe (a.k.a Omo London) was chic in AGU for the event, pairing her long-sleeved lace dress with simple strappy shoes in this season’s trendy metallic. #Amazing.
