The BRIT Awards 2018 Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The Brit Awards 2018 weren’t just about the ladies, as a set of fellows put on their stylish best for the event on Wednesday (February 21) in London.

Calvin Harris: Not only did Calvin have me at hello, given the pure sharpness of this Dior Homme Spring 2018 suit, I was even more enamoured upon closer inspection. Look closely, and the graphic print is actually ‘Christian Dior Atelier’ printed stripes. Way to put ‘normal’ pinstripes to shame.

Justin Timberlake: Before taking to the stage to perform, JT was on the red carpet in a Stella McCartney dark suit and red scarf for a stylish flourish. I do question the brown shoes here, as they were such a distraction.

Luke Evans: The Welsh actor channeled suave formality in this charcoal-gray, contrast lapel suit.

The BRIT Awards 2018 Red Carpet Roundup

Long, short, and everything in between, the eclectic looks marched on with so many more stars in attendance at The Brit Awards 2018 on Wednesday (February 21) in London.

Jennifer Hudson: I loved the sizzling hue of this red-hot Ralph Lauren gown, but not the fit. The patent-plasticized look would have been all shine had the silhouette been sleeker without the awkward folds.

Adwoa Aboah: Rita Ora wasn’t the only one in feathers, as Adwoa also took a flight of fancy with this Sonia Rykiel white dress. The model’s directional looks can sometimes be a tough sell, so I like the pristine romance she presented here with Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ sandals and a Time’s Up rose to complete the picture.

Maya Jama: Given this House of Holland mini was a custom piece, I expected an impeccable fit and the pink metallic number delivered. She complemented its flirty, girlish side with Sophia Webster embellished sandals. But, I would have left the diamond choker at home.

Esquire’s Annual Maverick’s Of Hollywood

Esquire’s Annual Maverick’s Of Hollywood was held on Tuesday (February 20) in LA, celebrating 23 women and men who are taking creative risks and making bold, innovative work in Hollywood.

Angela Sarafyan: Earlier in the day, Angela had us seeing red—and she continued working the striking colour here. However, the distinct lingerie mood and sheer elements of this Milly look will no doubt land as successfully as her prior entrance did. Had the skirt been lightly lined, I think we’d all be on board.

Donald Glover: I love a good statement jacket, and that was never more true than in this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2018 heart motif letterman’s jacket that didn’t skimp on playfulness. I do wish he had paired it with something less formally traditional than pleated trousers.

Lydia Hearst: This Fausto Puglisi Fall 2017 look is a tough one to take off the runway, given its experimental edge. As the coat was already halfway off her shoulders, the overall ensemble may have presented as slightly less haphazard had she just removed it. Read More…

Front Row @ Gucci Fall 2018

Milan Fashion Week is in full swing, with the Gucci Fall 2018 show held on Wednesday (February 21) and style darlings in attendance.

Rowan Blanchard: Not only did the lime-green hue of this jumpsuit draw me in, so too did the retro-modern influences that Rowan flaunted so flawlessly. I love the spark of the contrasting magenta-pink handbag for a girlish finish to echo her beauty look.

Chloe Sevigny: There was a distinct throwback vibe in this jumpsuit ensemble, too, that played with volume in the pouf sleeves and pants. I do think the cross-body bag was a bit of a distracting interference.

Miriam Leone: The more interesting element of this ensemble was the back, with the Bob Mackie reference and embellished gown’s deconstructed bow. Yet, the fit and execution still left something to be desired.

The CFDA, WWD & Variety Celebrate Runway To Red Carpet Initiative

To celebrate the inaugural launch of the Runway to Red Carpet initiative, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Variety and Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) hosted a star-studded luncheon on Tuesday (February 20) at the Chateau Marmont, which was sponsored by Karma Automotive.

A range of starlets were in attendance. However, if you had just looked at their ensembles, you’d never know they were at the same event—so diverse were their modes of dress.

Olivia Munn: I like the sunny outlook of this Veronica Beard Spring 2018 warm-weather-ready suit set, with the drawstring detailing adding an element of feminine allure. Obviously, the shorts didn’t stand up so well to the creases from sitting.

Lea Michele: Opting for a more romantically feminine offering, Lea wore a Zuhair Murad floral gown with a ruffled peplum. I can imagine this dress looked very pretty in the garden outside.

January Jones: I appreciate the directional, urban-forward mood the actress was setting with this Off-White Resort 2018 look—complete with that slick-back ponytail. However, I know the deconstructed, pinstripe skirt will have many saying it looks as if she wrapped a bolt of men’s shirting material around her waist.

Gabrielle Union In Off-White & Sergio Hudson – NBA All-Star Game

In addition to Beyonce Knowles, Gabrielle Union was also seen courtside at NBA All-Star Game on Sunday (February 18) in LA.

As with Bey, I longed to see this look whilst she was standing.

But, using my imagination, I fear that the feathered Brother Vellies sandals may have lent a more boudoir, powder-room robe vibe to her long white Sergio Hudson Fall 2017 velvet coat.

She donned an Off White dress underneath, with an FW & Style bag and Mateo jewelry to complete the look.

Did the whimsical shoes likewise strike you as an odd choice for the occasion?

Lupita Nyong’o In Kevin Mayes & Danai Gurira In The Row – ‘Black Panther’ Johannesburg Premiere

As the ‘Black Panther’ promo tour marched along, Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira were both in attendance at the Johannesburg premiere on Friday (February 16)—both in looks that vibrantly reflected the heritage of their South Africa setting.

Lupita Nyong’o: The fiery hue of this Kevin Mayes design, not to mention the gold embroidered cutouts, were so striking, as Lupita returned to the bold colours we know and love. More allure came by virtue of the hip-high dual front slits—more visible in movement—an intriguing counterpoint to the sweeping nature of the skirt.

Danai Gurira: The statement piece of this loose and languid navy gown was the bold, textural neck piece as well as her cuffs that added such a relevant flourish to the simple halter design.
