Shailene Woodley vs Natalie Dormer vs Sophie, Countess of Wessex

Today we have a new designer that enters the WWIB world and I'm talking about Mary Katrantzou and her Lamur guipure lace and jacquard midi dress, who has been worn by three splendid celebrities over the past year (and one of them is a Brit Royal family member!)

Nothing to add, if not: enjoy!
Early this year, in March, American actress Shailene Woodley was guest of the ‘Late Show With David Letterman for the promotion of her latest movie "Insurgent" and that's when Mary Katrantzou's dress made its first appearance. The young actress styled it with ankle laced pumpd and an basic hair updo.
After her, there have been two other stars who wore this piece: actress Natalie Dormer during last Comic-Con (opting for more elaborated shoes and a messy ponytail hairstyle) and Sophie, Countess of Wessex at the Harper’s Bazaar "Women of the Year Awards" event early this Novemebr in London. Needless to say that the royal went for a more "lady-like" look compared to the two actresses, but it's a bit obvious since she's a bit older.


Who do you think wore it better:
Shailene Woodley, Natalie Dormer or Sophie, Countess of Wessex?

Novel Of The Week: Rome (Marked Men #3) by Jay Crownover

One thing I should have learned by now is to read the novel's plot!; by doing that I would have known this is the THIRD book of the Maked Men series and I would have spared myself for the first 20 pages of not understanding a thing about the characters.
Beside this, here my reviews and thoughts on Rome by Jay Crownover.
Enjoy!

Jessica Biel vs Beth Behrs

I don't think we've ever had a Self-Portrait #WWIB, but thankfully there's a first time for everything!
The first of today's contestants wore this black lace/ blue culotte Self-Portrait's jumpsuit was actress Jessica Biel, while attenting at the launch party for her Bare It All + Bare AW15 event, last August.
She opted for a high chignon (too high, in my opinion), barely there make up and nude pumps.
"2 Broke Girl" actress Beth Behrs wore the same jumpsuit at the celebration of CBS series 100th episode last October, and styled it with similar pumps as Jessica, and a messy hair updo.
Who do you think wore it better:
Jessica Biel or Beth Behrs?

Who Wore It Best: Salvatore Ferragamo edition

Salvatore Ferragamo is an Italian fashion brand founded by the homonym designer in 1927. The brand recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of the first store opened in China and the renewed flagship store in Shanghai with a gala dinner. 

The guests were marvellous in the brand fashion pieces, but a few of those Chinese actresses were not the only ones who wore them!
Nayoung Keem wore this Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2015 striped sweater and ribbed skirt and pratically added nothing to it. Just a simpe black purse and black heels. We can say the same for Krysten Ritter, who wore the same outfit a few days after for her appearence at SiriusXM Studios, but I have to say I like the shoes she chose!
Cody Horn wore this coloured striped dress last Septembet while attending the celebration of 100 years of Ferragamo in Hollywood (I know I wrote the brand was found in 1927, don't ask me why 100 years!) and the same dress was choosen by Wang Ho at the Shanghai gala dinner. 
Last but not least were Camilla Belle (at the 100 years in Hollywood event) and Zhou Yi (at the Shanghai event) who both opted for this black lace dress. While Camilla went for dual black lace over green skirt,  Zhou wore a total blak lace skirt and added a brown belt instead of a black one.


That's all for this Who Wore it Best edition, let me know in the comments who do you think owned the look and who didn't!

Bella Heathcote vs Anna Foglietta

Aussie actress Bella Heathcote wore Gucci Fall 2015 burgundy lace top and leather pleated skirt first while attending Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Party back in July. She went for lace up heels and beach waves hairstyle, showing off her new ice blond hair color.
The same outif has been worn by Italian actress Anna Foglietta at the Ellen Page, A Tribute To Commitment dinner party during 2015 Rome Film Festival, later last October. She was even more minimal in accessories and make up, smart choice given the particular dress.

Who do you think wore it better:
Bella Heathcote or Anna Foglietta?

#TTT: Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
It was meant to be only for books BUT
I changed it a little bit so will be 5 books I want to read but don't own yet and 5 movies I'm planning to see PLUS it's going to be monthly not weekly.


What I've seen of the previous #TTTs:
The intern  3½/5 I found this movie emotional, instructive and a beatiful example of friendship and trust.
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials 2½/5 - It's completely different from the book version. It is well acted by the cast, but you might wait the dvd to be out if you're not bursting to see it.


This month wishlist
MOVIES

Spectre (2015) by Sam Mendes. With Daniel Craig, Monica Bellucci, 
Christoph Waltz and Léa Seydoux.
