Solange Knowles In Marques Almeida – LAX

Solange Knowles In Marques Almeida - LAX

Solange Knowles was spotted making her way through LAX Airport on Friday (January 23).

The singer, who is never shy of colour, wore her favourite colour: yellow, donning a Marques Almeida Fall 2014 long sleeve knit ribbed top and skirt which are both accented with feathers.

While some might liken this look to a half plunked bird, I love how chic this look feels.

Styled with Karen Walker ‘Super Duper Strength’ sunglasses and white mules, as per, this look is oozing an effortless cool vibe especially with the fro teased to new heights.

Emilio Pucci Eyewear Dinner Party

Emilio Pucci Eyewear Dinner Party

Celebrities attended the Emilio Pucci eyewear launch cocktail and dinner held at the Italian embassy on Monday (January 26) in Paris, France.

Poppy Delevingne: The socialite wore a white Emilio Pucci floral embroidered suit styled with a white knit top and Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals. As with any Pucci look, this is bold and colourful, oozing strength and sex appeal. While the glossy waves do add to the fresh feeling of this look, a part of me wishes she had worn her hair back.

Izabel Goulart: I’m very impressed with Izabel here. She wore a chic black and ivory look which showcases a rare demure side to her red carpet style. With this being a Pucci event, she could’ve gone down the predictable route.

Natasha Poly: The blonde wore a mini frock which screams Pucci from its minuscule length, embellishments, multi-colours and oozing sex appeal. Her look was styled with a Paula Cademartori ‘Cocca’ clutch and Stuart Weitzman gold sandals.

I adore all three looks which showcase that the Pucci woman is far from one dimensional.

Janelle Monae In Balmain – 23rd Annual Trumpet Awards

Janelle Monae In Balmain - 23rd Annual Trumpet Awards

Janelle Monae attended the 23rd Annual Trumpet Awards held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center on Saturday (January 24) in Atlanta, Georgia.

The singer kept up her 100% black and white run wearing a directional caped blazer from Balmain in an eye-catching jacquard graphic print.

Showing off her fashion flair, she teamed the amazing piece with black cigarette pants and Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Gabo’ cut-out booties.

With her hair teased into a signature style, just a touch of red via her nails and lip interrupted this black and white affair.

Front Row @ Armani Privé Spring 2015

Armani prive front row

As you would expect, the front row was packed with celebrities at the Armani Privé Spring 2015 show held during Paris Fashion Week in France yesterday evening (January 27).

Sonam Kapoor: The Indian goddess looked resplendent wearing an Armani Spring 2015 jumpsuit featuring an embellished body and sheer cropped trousers. I love this look for several reasons: the colour, the detailing and the subtle cultural references. She couldn’t have selected a more fitting piece. Having seen this in person last night, this picture is just not doing her justice. She was majestically exquisite.

Paz Vega: The Spanish beauty was back to her best, looking effortlessly statuesque and elegant in satin Armani separates. At first I wasn’t too sure about the coat, but it helped create a strong silhouette with the bold shoulders and long length.

Get The Look: Felicity Jones’ Producers Guild Awards Tousled Bun

Get The Look Felicity Jones' Producers Guild Awards Tousled Bun

Celebrity hairstylist Cervando Maldonado worked with Felicity Jones for the 2015 Producers Guild Awards on Saturday (January 24).

Cervando said, “My inspiration for the look was a modern tousled bun.”

Here’s how to get the look.

On damp hair he first applied Kerastase Volumactive Mousse from roots to ends. Then he sprayed Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray throughout the hair.

Next he used a Harry Josh Blow Dryer and rough dried the hair until it was almost dry, using a comb on the top of the head and around the hairline to create lift and texture. He used a medium-sized Ibiza Boar Bristle Brush to blow out the hair starting on the top and the front of the head, taking it section by section to create lift and semi-smoothness. After blow drying each section, he put the hair in a small Velcro roller to create lift and hold. Once the hair was set in the rollers from the front of the head to the crown only, he smoothed out the hair around the face with the brush and left the rest of the hair at the back of the head in its natural texture.

Once the hair was dry, he took all of the rollers out except the one at the very front. He then used his hands to rake though the rest of the hair, pulling it up into a ponytail above the occipital bone. He pinched the hair in place and wrapped a bungee hair band around the hair to secure it. Next he took the ponytail and wrapped it around into a loose bun, using bobby pins and hair pins to hold it in place. He then took the last roller out and pushed the remaining hair back with his hands, pinning it in place right above the bun.

Next he sprayed a combination of Oribe Dry Texturing Spray and Sachajuan Volume Powder through the top of the hair and the bun to create great texture and keep the height in the front. He finished it all off with Sachajuan Super Strong Hold Hairspray, spraying lightly through the whole head for a great hold with a natural look.
