Variety’s Power Of Women

Variety’s Power Of Women event brought together philanthropic femmes for an exclusive luncheon in Beverly Hills, California on Friday (October 13).

Octavia Spencer: Celebrated at the event for her work with City Year, Octavia gave her favoured designer Tadashi Shoji the afternoon off, instead donning a custom-made Laura Basci ensemble. I love how she brought a touch of the wild to the business-chic side of the dress with her leopard accessories.

Ashley Tisdale: With a fun and flirty outlook, Ashley wore a CMEO Collective number, to which the black pumps didn’t exactly reflect the youthful vibe. I would have probably skipped the diamond chokers, too.

Nikki Reed: The new mom kept her frilly, feminine look as meaningful as possible by wearing an eco-friendly dress by Amur. An Edie Parker clutch, John Hardy jewels, and Rupert Sanderson shoes rounded out the look.

Priyanka Chopra: The actress accepted an award for her work as UNICEF ambassador in a Michael Kors Resort 2018 dress that I loved for its punchy, black-and-white floral motif that was just as statement-making as any colourful palette could be. Dauphin jewels and Christian Louboutin ‘Aketata’ sandals completed her look.

Emmanuelle Chriqui: Also going for a black-and-white look, Emmanuelle opted for slouchy stripes in her Alice + Olivia trousers and camisole. You may remember Victoria Justice also wore these bold pants.

Jaime King: Even though the Fendi Resort 2018 lookbook showcased this lemony, textural dress with the black scarf, all I could think about was removing it.

Constance Zimmer: I liked the feminine asymmetry of this navy Lavish Alice Fall 2017 jumpsuit. But it was lacking in the accessories department, as both the clutch and the tan shoes translated as a bit clunky with the look.

Viola Davis: The intense coral hue of this Giorgio Armani suit was striking on Viola, but I kept wondering if it was too much of a good thing with the high-neck, matching blouse underneath. A slightly lower-cut camisole would have provided a beautiful neckline.  Rose gold Stella Luna ‘Indispensable’ pumps completed her look. 

Michelle Pfeiffer: There was something intriguing about Michelle’s Akris Fall 2017 look with its sheer mesh and super-long, thumbhole sleeves. But, it seemed an odd choice for the luncheon event—and perhaps better suited to a more dramatic nighttime affair.

    Octavia and Priyanka.
    Viola..no, too overwhelmingly orange-y.

    I love Michelle’s look but agree that it would have been better at another event. I find Ashely’s look way too twee. Nikki looks great. The rest are fine — no one looks awful but no one really wows me.

    None really. Octavia if I had to pick one. The rest are dull or off.

    I agree about Viola’s suit…too much. Love Michelle but that’s not a luncheon outfit. Ashley Tisdale looks ridiculous and those striped trousers are hideous. Priyanka and Octavia looked fabulous.

    Viola looks amazing. Her makeup is stunning! And I love her in bold colours. Wow, her smile is gorgeous. Also love Priyanka’s look.

    Viola looks amazing, love her look!
    I’m actually intrigued by Michelle’s look as well, it suits her, she seems comfortable in it and sells it.
    Priyanka looks nice as well.

    Viola and Priyanka stand out for me.

    I disagree about Viola, she looks fantastic and on point. She never looks better than in vivd colors against her gorgeous skin.

    Octavia Spencer and Priyanka for me.
