Tao Okamoto: This Elie Saab Spring 2018 gown fully encompassed the designer’s foliage-driven collection with its leafy motif. Many of us will have to choose to ignore the visible nude undies underneath the sheer skirt, as I question whether black granny panties would have been any better.
Jonathan Tucker: Proving that men can certainly wear pink—and look damn handsome—Jonathan took a sharp turn in this Strong Suit by Ilaria Urbinati Collection suit that retained a sense of casual flair thanks to the unbuttoned dress shirt. Rich chocolate loafers and a David Yurman pinky ring rounded out the look.
Katja Herbers: I appreciate that Katja let her Giamba Spring 2018 mixed pattern frock with boho broderie influences stand on its own without the clutter of extraneous accessories.
Julia Jones: I love how impactful this dimensionally embroidered Oscar de la Renta gown became when styled with Julia’s refreshing, au naturel makeup and beauty. It was so effortlessly elegant.
Rodrigo Santoro: The exploded windowpane Isaia suit could have been a bit more polished in its fit, and while I appreciate a bold tie, I’m not sure this skinny red one did the look any favours. Jimmy Choo ‘Stefan’ lace-up shoes completed the ensemble.
Shannon Woodward: The geometric neckline offered this embellished gown a certain future-forward vibe. But, with the large keyhole detail on top of it all, it felt a little forced. Jennifer Meyer jewels added a bit more shine to the glinting gown.
Leonardo Nam: I always like to see a guy stepping outside the standard suit box, and Leonardo did just that in this Dzojchen design. With the jacket, wrapped with a twist on the obi robe belt, you can see the East-West duality for which the brand is known. And, those ombre-effect shoes packed on additional flavour.
Ingrid Bolso Berdal: The dropped-waist silhouette of this diaphanous, olive-green J. Mendel Fall 2018 gown won’t be anything we haven’t seen before. But, I did find the multi-hued, metallic embroidery woven throughout to be an intriguing and enlivening element with the clutch picking up on the mauve colourway.
Jimmi Simpson: A study in chambray, Jimmi channeled denim for days in this Richard James suit.
