Celebrities Love…Gingham

Celebrities Love Gingham
The most effective way to check the box on breezy seasonal style is with the pattern of the summer—gingham. The classic print stormed the Spring 2015 runways last September, with designers fully embracing its sweet and sexy charms.

It has since become a celebrity favourite, with starlets showing the many sides of the grid—and, as it turns out, gingham is not just a one-trick pony.

Vanessa Hudgens embodied the classic, ladylike allure of the black-and-white print in a full-skirted Dolce & Gabbana dress that nodded to a vintage flair.

Likewise, Lizzy Caplan wore a Lela Rose frock that featured the timeless pattern in a feminine silhouette contrasted with an on-trend high-low hemline.

Meanwhile, I loved seeing Amal Clooney step outside of the girly gingham tradition in a Tome sleeveless trench coat with an exploded checquered pattern, which she paired with distressed denim and shoe boots for the ultimate in edgy, elegant allure.

Adorably flaunting gingham’s inherent playfulness, Emmy Rossum dressed in a girlish Aqua frock that she sophisticatedly paired with raffia Paul Andrew pumps.

Oozing with an aura of retro refinement, Freida Pinto impressed in a green micro-gingham Michael Kors dress that was a like a breath of fresh air, offering an ultra-chic new lease on life for the pattern.

Anne Hathaway returned to tradition in an all-American, sporty-glam Michael Kors printed skirt and crop top for her recent outing.

Do these many renditions of the almighty gingham have you convinced?

Evangeline Lilly In Halston Heritage – ‘Ant-Man’ LA Premiere

Evangeline Lilly In Halston Heritage - 'Ant-Man' LA Premiere

Evangeline Lilly attended the premiere of Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ at the Dolby Theatre on Monday (June 29) in Hollywood, California.

Going for both style and comfort, the charming nature of Evangeline’s Halston Heritage one-shoulder gown was enhanced by the graphic black and white colour-blocking.

Styled with a Les Petits Joueurs clutch and embellished sandals, I will be intrigued to see how Evangeline’s maternity style evolves during this promo tour.

Menswear Red Carpet Weekend Roundup

Menswear Weekend Red Carpet Roundup 3

Over the weekend, a group of guys attended a range of events, and if nothing else, I couldn’t be more delighted that there was not a shred of traditional black suiting on the red carpet this time around.

Jon Hamm: On Saturday (June 27), the actor joined Sandra Bullock at the premiere of ‘Minions’ at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, where he wore a summery Ralph Lauren suit contrasted with a baby blue button-down shirt and dark navy tie.

Michael B Jordan: At the 2015 BET Awards on Sunday (June 28), Michael was handsome in a tonal gray-green Sandro suit—with the hue even extending to his dress shoes. Although it was monochromatic, the look had a rich depth, especially when finished with a cobalt tie.

Jason Clarke: While I appreciated his willingness to step outside the traditional sartorial box at the ‘Terminator Genisys’ premiere on Saturday (June 28) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California, his ecru Michael Bastian double-breasted sport coat wasn’t exactly flattering. The ill-fitted effect continued with the unbuttoned dress shirt, with Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo’ shoes completing the ensemble.

2015 BET Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2015 BET Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the a few more of the attendees from Sundays (June 28) 2015 BET Awards.

Janelle Monae: If it’s got a cape on it, Janelle will wear it. This SAFiYAA cape look is just one of many the singer has donned recently.

La La Anthony: The TV host was one of the few who nailed it at this event. While her Peter Pilotto colourful dress was a shorter re-run from Cindy Crawford’s look from last week, at least this look was season appropriate complete with yellow Giuseppe Zanotti sandals which can’t be missed.

Kelly Rowland: I mean? What the hell is this? Was Kelly trying to audition for ‘Black Swan 2’? This Lever Couture was tragic on so many levels. Too many to count.
