Freida Pinto In Vionnet & Johanna Ortiz – 2017 Maui Film Festival

As the recipient of the 2017 Maui Film Festival’s Shining Star Award, Freida Pinto has been making the rounds in Wailea, Hawaii.

Day 1: On Wednesday (June 21), the actress was at the ‘Taste of Summer’ festival event where she certainly embodied the season with her lemony Vionnet ruffle frock shaped by a grosgrain belt. I love how this relaxed, sunny dress reflected the mood of her surroundings.

Day 2: While making an appearance at the ‘Celestial Cinema’ on Thursday (June 22), Freida wore a lovely Johanna Ortiz Spring 2017 dress that was my favourite of her two ensembles for its sophisticated embrace of island life. From the tropical, palm print, to the halter neckline and the feminine cascades of ruffles, the look was simply made for the aloha spirit.

Princess Beatrice & Princess Eugenie of York at Ascot 2017

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York have been out and about at the Royal Ascot 2017 in Ascot, England.

Princess Beatrice: On Day 1 (June 20), Princess Beatrice’s interpretation of formal daywear had her channeling a garden spirit in this miniature-floral-bedecked Claire Mischevani cream dress styled with a Valentino clutch, Stuart Weitzman ‘Capsize’ shoes, and a Goldust Millinery bloom-topped hat to match. I have a feeling some might find this a bit too precious.

Princess Eugenie: Princess Eugenie was the yang to Beatrice’s yin in a black, polka-dot dress worn with Reiss ‘Ellen’ heels and a bespoke Ethan K clutch. The accent colours of her hat added a brighter note to the look.

Rachel Bilson In Zimmermann + 31. Phillip Lim – SiriusXM & Build Series: CMT’s Nashville

While out in New York City promoting her new role on CMT’s ‘Nashville,’ Rachel Bilson stopped by the SiriusXM Studios on Wednesday (June 21) before heading to Build Series the next day (June 22).

SiriusXM: With a big hair game going strong, Rachel took a cue from southern Nashville charm in this look. Yet, those curls were perhaps a little too voluminous for the edgier spirit of this Zimmermann Fall 2017 high-low, pleated skirt sleekly paired with a fitted black top and style-forward Azzedine Alaïa sandals.

Build Series
: While I loved the galactic silver metallic accents she brought to this 3.1 Phillip Lim Pre-Fall 2017 top and skirt in her Isabel Marant bauble earrings and Christian Louboutin heels, the ensemble’s proportions didn’t exactly give her petite frame any elongating favour. However, it was her hairstyle that yet again let me scratching my head, as it was far too mumsy for the lovely actress.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup


Keeping the red carpet hot, a few men were out and about on the promo circuit this past week.

Jamie Foxx: The actor was at the ‘Baby Driver’ London premiere on Wednesday (June 21), joining Eiza Gonzalez and Lily James at the event. There would be no denying his suave navy suit, worn in his effortlessly cool manner, as he carried the ironically named Privé Revaux ‘The Underdog’ shades—he is no underdog here.

Chadwick Boseman: For the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ show on Wednesday (June 21), Chadwick suited up in a Burberry Tailoring ensemble while Jimmy tried to get him to spill details on the ‘Avengers’ movie. The chambray-inspired look could have used a similar summer freshness in the tie, but all in all, he looked sharp.

Ansel Elgort: Also at the ‘Baby Driver’ London premiere, Ansel gave Jamie a run for his money in an impeccable Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2017 suit that featured the subtle, sophisticated touch of tonal piping at the lapels. Oxford lace-up shoes completed the sleekly urbane look.

Aubrey Plaza In Red Valentino & Miu Miu – ‘The Little Hours’ & ‘Ingrid Goes West’ LA Screenings

Aubrey Plaza has been at the 2017 Los Angeles Film Festival, where she attended the screening of ‘The Little Hours’ on Monday (June 19) and the closing night screening of ‘Ingrid Goes West’ on Thursday (June 22).

‘The Little Hours’: Despite the embroidered, decorative floral throughout, this Red Valentino Fall 2017 dress resonated more strongly on the solemnly conservative scale that would also seem a bit heavy for summer. So, I’m glad she tried to lighten the mood with her ponytail and pumps although a sandal would have likely been even more successful.

‘Ingrid Goes West’: With a distinct vintage flavour, this pleated, pink Miu Miu frock had something of a quirky, retro charm completed by the black platform heels—even if I didn’t exactly understand the wash of her purple eyeliner here.

Emma Watson In Louis Vuitton – ‘The Circle’ Paris Photocall

After the premiere of ‘The Circle,’ Emma Watson was back on the red carpet for the film’s photocall today (June 22) in Paris.

Recommencing a forward-looking edginess, she turned her style 180 degrees from her premiere gown with this Louis Vuitton Resort 2018 statement.

While it may not be to everyone’s taste, I loved the strength with which she rocked the sheer metallic-embellished dress worn over the printed T-shirt.

It was unexpected—and a bit subversive—and somehow quite youthfully fresh on Emma.

Sophisticated Santoni heels, a M2Malletier black suede mini bucket bag and a simple updo rounded out the look on a clean, polished finish.
