Beyonce Knowles In Dolce & Gabbana – Out In New York City

Beyonce Knowles In Dolce & Gabbana - Out In New York City

No doubt in high spirits following her five MTV Music Awards nominations, Beyonce Knowles was all smiles while stepping out in New York City on Monday (July 27).

Dolce & Gabbana’s recurring blossom print motif boldly decorates this figure-hugging black dress which showcases Bey’s gorgeous figure to perfection.

A chic shawl collar blazer, Stuart Weitzman’ Nudist’ sandals, Ray Ban ‘Clubmaster’ shades and a Dannijo ‘Lypton’ chain-detail bag completed her day time look.

Some might say she’s too busty for this dress, but I have to say that I really like this outfit.

Sometimes I feel Beyonce tries too hard to cultivate a style which isn’t her own, but this one feels very much like she put it together.

Celebrities Love…Culottes

Celebrities Love Culottes

The culottes club is rapidly growing in membership, adding new converts nearly every day who are strutting out chic looks in praise of the pants.

An underlying trend on the scene for more than a year, it’s safe to say that the voluminous, wide-legged trousers have found their footing amongst a flock of style darlings who have been none too shy in taking them for a spin.

Something of an acquired taste for many, culottes are all about the right proportions and sharp, clean tailoring, which is worth its weight in gold when it comes to this modern version of a midi.

Even bright magenta culottes can achieve sophisticated standards, as Keke Palmer shows in her Solace London ensemble, where she wears the high-waisted, structured pants with a simple cropped top for a look that’s packed with panache.

Playing with pattern instead of colour, Ashley Madekwe wore a Self-Portrait pair that boasted slightly less volume but no less boldness in the checquerboard print and the cutout, asymmetrical top.

An even breezier rendition, Alicia Vikander’s Rosetta Getty look displayed the ultimate in simple, feminine elegance—with a mod edge.

Are you convinced by these culottes?

Tom Cruise In Giorgio Armani – ‘Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation’ Premieres

Tom Cruise In Giorgio Armani - ‘Mission Impossible Rogue Nation’ New York Premiere

While we’ve focused on the lovely Rebecca Ferguson for the ‘Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation’ promo tour, Tom Cruise has also been present at the premieres in Vienna, London and New York where the handsome actor continues to show faith in Giorgio Armani.

Vienna: Armani created an exceptional tailored vision when creating this trimmed with satin, clean-cut classic tuxedo.

London: Channelling his inner banker, this grey and blue Armani three-piece combo was sartorially elegant with its streamline structured silhouette. This was eventually my favourite.

New York: Looking a bit windswept and creased, while I love the deep navy shade of the recent Armani outing, the grooming lets him down.

Which was your favourite?

Katy Perry In Chloé 2015 Starkey Hearing Foundation ‘So The World May Hear’ Gala

Before her performance at the ‘So The World May Hear’ Gala held at the St. Paul River Centre on Sunday (July 26) in St. Paul, Minnesota, Katy Perry took to the red carpet with the founders of the Starkey Hearing Foundation; Tani Austin and Bill Austin.

The singer wore a Chloé Resort 2015 gown with cascading ruffles, which despite its snug fit was an elegant choice for the usually quirky Katy.

I love how the Sutra blue sapphire earrings complement the embellishments on her shoulders.

Cate Blanchett In Carl Kapp – 2015 Helpmann Awards

Cate Blanchett In Carl Kapp - 2015 Helpmann Awards

Cate Blanchett attended the 2015 Helpmann Awards at the Capitol Theatre on Monday (July 27) in Sydney, Australia

The beautiful actress wore a stunning dress by South African born, Australian based fashion designer; Carl Kapp.

Her one-shoulder Fall 2013 black dress was modern, yet refined, offering an arresting sense of minimalism while perfectly showcasing the female form.

My only disappointment here is that she didn’t opt for the teal version.
