2017 Guggenheim International Pre-Party

There were many spectacular looks to discuss at the 2017 Guggenheim International pre-party on Wednesday (November 15) in New York City.

Kate Mara: The actress shimmered in a multicoloured Dior dress. Some might have preferred an opaque version, but the subtle sheer panels had a soft, unexpected sexiness. Dior pumps and a Dior ‘J’adior’ clutch let the frock do the talking.

Rebecca Hall: Turning heads in a tomato red Dior dress, the actress presented a feminine take on suiting elements. Dior black leather boots and a Diortarot clutch brought out the curving details of the black buttons.

Michelle Monaghan: Opting for refined minimalism, the American actress donned a black Dior dress with Dior ‘Amour’ pumps. An embellished Dior ‘Addict’ bag added some unexpected brightness to the ensemble.

Alana Haim: Gold detailing enlivened the Haim band member’s gown for an enchanting effect. The addition of the leather beret brought a sense of joy and fun, proving eveningwear needn’t always be so serious.

Danielle Haim: Unlike her sisters, she went with trousers. This look had a quiet sophistication which allowed the different fabrics and understated details to come forward.

Este Haim: There were interesting details aplenty in this ensemble. My eye goes from the layering to the different surface details to the black bra and briefs, but the overall effect is still cohesive thanks to the moody feel.

Portia Doubleday: The ‘Carrie’ actress couldn’t resist the charms of a Dior black tulle embroidered dress, revealing logo briefs and bra. She juxtaposed the sheer, sensual elements with black ankle boots and a Dior ‘Le Coeur de Dior’ bag. We’ve seen many versions of this, but there’s still something captivating about how effortless the outfit looks on her.

Cara Santana: The actress was clad in the iconic Dior ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ t-shirt. She dressed up the piece with navy silk taffeta pants. Many will be surprised by the trousers but the outfit showed pants could be as elegant as a skirt. A Dior embroidered clutch brought everything together.

Chelsea Leyland: The British model made a colourful statement in a Dior blue tulle embroidered dress. I can hear many crying out for a lining, but I wouldn’t have minded the visible underwear had they been coordinated with the frock. The contrasting lingerie with the Dior ‘Amour’ pumps and Dior white tarot clutch results in too many competing elements so it’s difficult to focus.

    Chelsea who? She’s a model? What a god-awful appearance here.

    I like Rebecca’s look and Cara’s t-shirt.

    Love Michelle here.

    No one’s shining here but Michelle looks subtly chic. I like the colours and pattern on Kate’s dress I just wish it wasn’t in that cutesy dress shape on her. Rebecca’s styling really drags her dress down. The rest are bland with Chelsea’s being an outright disaster.

    I would have preferred Kate’s dress in opaque. Otherwise I only like Michelle M.

    The rest is meh to terrible (Poppy and Chelsea)

    I hate all of these looks but I loved the red custom looks the Haim sisters wore to perform, those were awesome

    Chelsea dress is the worst thing I have seen from Dior this year and that is saying something. Everything else here is just meh and I am a bit sick of the message t-shirt that really say nothing.

    Rebecca’s look is the only one that appears deserving of the label Dior.

    Chelsea’s look…oh my. That’s some WDOTY realness.

    There is nothing, absolutely nothing alluring about wearing sheer at a museum. Not even for parties at a museum. Total nonsense.
    I only like Rebeca Hall here.

    Chelsea whoever she is looks trashy in that hideous Dior non-dress.
