#RedCarpetRoundup (15th-22nd June): Zendaya, Kim Kardashian, Ashanti & More!

Last week saw fun and fabulous events happening around the world, bringing the stars out in the best of stylish garms.

Here, we’re rounding up the most head-turning looks that caught our eye for their attention to the season’s trends – including looks from rising star Zendaya, Kim Kardashian and Tinie Tempah;

Even though she wasn't in the movie, singer Ashanti Ashanti entered our roundup with a bang this week, in celeb favorite Olcay Gulsen. She was spotted at the Think Like A Man Too Black Film Festival Premiere in a white cutout jumpsuit from the brand. Tom Ford pumps and a $1,307 Emilio Pucci Embellished Clutch accented her ‘fit. We cannot deny…Ashanti did that!
Even though she wasn’t in the movie, singer Ashanti stepped out looking youthful for the Think Like A Man Too premiere at the Black Film Festival in ??, Wearing a white cutout jumpsuit from Olclay Gulsen and matching Tom Ford pumps, the star accessorised with a $1,307 Emilio Pucci embellished clutch and worked Spring/Summer’14’s head-to-toe white trend to a tee. #LoveIt.

Calabasas’s own couldn’t be missed at the Cannes Lion Daily Mail Film Festival in a Balmain Fall 2014 White Rope Beaded Gown. This was a lot of look and certainly not easy to pull off with little to no effort, but Kim served! Her confidence is one of her best accessories and I’m not sure if Kanye has anything to do with this ensemble, but to both of them (and Olivier Rousteing) I say bravo! June Ambrose in Mary Katrantzou:
And Kim K went a similar route, serving it hot in a white roped and beaded Balmain A/W’14 gown for the Cannes Lion Daily Mail Film Festival. Mrs Kardashian-West turned heads with her figure-fitting dress and wore her hair pulled back, showing off her beauty from top-to-toe, too.

Jessica Alba headed to Istanbul, Turkey, where she attended the Magnum Golden Butterfly Awards held at Zorlu Center on Sunday (June 22). The actress dutifully obliged the gold theme, donning a gorgeous strapless metallic-gold Romona Keveza Spring 2014 mermaid gown. Tailored for a figure-hugging fit, the gown was styled with a Jenny Packham ‘Belle’ clutch featuring geometric embellishments which complemented both her gown and earrings.
Working it in the season’s metallic trend though, is Jessica Alba who attended the Magnum Golden Butterfly Awards in Istanbul, donning a gorgeous strapless gold Romona Keveza Spring’14 mermaid gown. Keeping her figure-hugging dress simple with a Jenny Packham “Belle” clutch with geometric embellishments, the actress complemented both her dress and earrings, and we at SPICE love it.

Uzo won the award for Best Guest Performer in a Comedy Series for her work as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on the show. Laverne and co-star Kate Mulgrew are up for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series! FYI: Uzo is wearing a vintage dress and House of Lavande jewelry. Natasha is wearing a Chloe dress, Gucci shoes, a Proenza Schouler clutch, and Vhernier jewelry. Laura is wearing an alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet gown. Laverne is wearing an Erickson Beamon bracelet and ring.
Orange is the New Black actress, Uzo Azuba who won the award for Best Guest Performer in a Comedy Series on her night out, was spotted in a golden vintage dress and House of Lavande jewellery at the 2014 Critics Choice TV Awards. The star also rocked her famous smile – which was probably a smile of joy knowing she’d ticked off S/S’14’s metallic trend with ease.

The print pleasers…

Diane Kruger looked very pretty in Elie Saab for the 2014 Critics Choice Awards
Diane Kruger – a star well-known for her flawless style – looked uber pretty in a multi-coloured floral print Elie Saab number, which she wore to the 2014 Critics Choice Television Awards. The dress, adorned with sequins and pastel blossom, worked the season’s embellishment and floral trend perfectly, so Diane’s choice of gown certainly paid off.

We featured this $96 Topshop Tropical Print Midi Skirt as a Bomb Product of the Day last month and lo and behold, Jessica Alba sported it today on FOX & Friends:
Making a second appearance on our list is ultra trendy Jessica Alba, seen her on the set of FOX TV’s FOX & Friends. Keeping her look simple, feminine and light, Ms Alba swore a $96 Topshop tropical print midi skirt, which she paired with a bright blue top. Prints from the tropics are all over the place for S/S’14, and stylish Jessica showed her’s off well.

Raymond Lam attends the Burberry Prorsum show during the London Collections: Men SS15 on June 17, 2014 in London, England. Formal with a laidback vibe, and uber stylish
And Chinese actor, Raymond Lam attended the Burberry Prorsum show during the London Collections: Men S/S’15 on June 17, looking laid-back yet formal in a blazer and brogues. Getting into the printed look for the season, Mr Lam wore a long scarf tucked inside his jacket, putting a spin on the trend that we at SPICE applaud.

Serena Williams attended the WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party held at the Kensington Roof Gardens on Thursday (June 19) in London, England. The tennis star donned a Burberry trench coat on the red carpet. The classic-trench-with-a-twist courtesy of the ruffled tiers towards the hem appears to be have been worn as a dress because from the neckline she doesn’t appear to be wearing much else underneath. Black accessories completed her look.
Sports superstar Serena Williams headed to the WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party in Kensington Roof Gardens, London on June 19th, wearing a Burberry trench coat as a dress, paired with black pointed courts for the event’s red carpet. Tciking off the season’s monochrome trend, the tennis pro looked great and we appreciate her risk-taking look.

106 & Park’: Opting for blush tones, the actress/singer wore an Alexia Ulibarri sweater dress styled with another pair of ‘So Kate’ Louboutin pumps and a stack of gold bracelets on both wrists.
Heading to 106 & Park, rising singer Zendaya Coleman wore S/S’14’s pastel trend well with an Alexia Ulibarri sweater dress, which she styled with a pair of “So Kate” Louboutins and gold bracelets. The relaxed fit of the dress, together with the severe points of her shoes, took this ensemble to edgy heights and we love this twist on the trend.

Tine Tempah looked super stylish at the GQ London Mens Collection: Closing dinner wearing Burberry
And lastly, we have the new face of mens fashion, Mr Tinie Tempah, who looked super stylish at GQs closing dinner event during the London Collections Mens S/S’15 shows. Rocking pastels like no other man could, Tinie looked pretty major and we at SPICE love a guy that knows his trends…
