Gucci Fall 2017 Front Row

The Gucci show was held on Wednesday (February 22) during Milan Fashion Week, where the front row featured three very distinct looks, inspired by the stars who wore them.

Florence Welch: Donning a very ‘Florence’ look, the songstress was at her bohemian best in this multi-printed, floral Gucci gown, styled with embellished booties and rows of rings to further drive home her signature brand of free-spirited romance.

Li Yuchun: Free-spirited went in another direction with this quirky studded ensemble that introduced both feline prowess and feathered birdies to the mix. With the funky shades, it was a look made for Li’s unique pop personality and she had no problem rocking it out.

Salma Hayek: I loved the unabashed prettiness of this Gucci floral-embroidered frock with its micro-pearl scoop neck and velvet bow. It was a darling look for the actress that still maintained a sophisticated edge despite its girly nature. The platform shoes were rather intense, but I’ll choose to ignore them.

Allison Williams In Erdem – Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Showing off her new blonde ambition, Allison Williams stopped by the ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ on Tuesday (February 21) in New York City.

Blondes may have more fun, but you wouldn’t exactly know it by her ensemble.

While the periwinkle-blue hue of the Erdem Resort 2017 dress was lovely enough, everything else about the look—from the all-over lace, to the updo and the earrings—was rather aging to the beautiful, young actress.

And those harshly out-of-place black pumps didn’t help matters at all.

There are ways to do freshly sophisticated without venturing so far into overly mature territory. I cannot wait to see her have more fun with those platinum locks.

2017 BRIT Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The 2017 BRIT Awards certainly brought no shortage of head-turning looks on Wednesday (February 22) in London, and here are a few more of them.

Jesy Nelson: The Little Mix girls were present and accounted for, with the chart-topping British group bringing their distinct stylistic flair to the event—starting with Jesy who played tough-girl-meets-seductress in this leather dress and long locks.

Leigh-Anne Pinnock: If this dress were a song, it would be a mashup between the ’80s and the ’90s, with a punk-rock meets grunge beat. That is to say there was a lot going on in this Namilia Spring 2017 denim, cone-bra gown so I’m glad she kept the styling sleek with her updo and minimal jewels.

Perrie Edwards: She also had a throwback moment, putting the cone bra to work for her, excepts hers was manifested in a black patent corset bodice with an illusion neckline. The feathery mullet skirt added a note of softness while fully showing off her legs.

Jade Thirlwall: Legs, or should we say leg, also dominated Jade’s Rare London white slip gown that looked as if it could have slipped right into a wardrobe malfunction at any moment. Aside from the dangerously gaping dress, it was too long and too creased—and the black gloves further lessened any of my tolerance for it.

Did any of these looks pass the test for you?

Vanity Fair Young Hollywood Party Red Carpet Roundup

A number of additional starlets attended the Vanity Fair Young Hollywood party on Tuesday (February 21) in West Hollywood, California, where the colour black was clearly trending among a few of them.

Victoria Justice: She wore her little black dress dolled up with lace in this Vatanika Spring 2017 number that brought a girly-meets-goth tone to the party.

Shay Mitchell: While this sexy twist on menswear is nothing we haven’t seen before, Shay wore the satiny Elizabeth and James Spring 2017 suit in top form with her sleek locks and  eye-catching, statement earrings adding a striking finish to the look.

Sofia Carson: Her LBD—long black dress—was a shimmering Alex Perry design. The full skirt brought a youthfully feminine flourish to the rectangular interpretation of an illusion plunge neckline.

The Naked Heart Foundation’s Fabulous Fund Fair

A collection of bold beauties were out in support of The Naked Heart Foundation’s Fabulous Fund Fair in London on Tuesday (February 21).

Natalia Vodianova: The model is known to favour red for this event, and she played favourites again with a bright crimson Givenchy Spring 2017 frock enlivened with fringe—although she could have continued the colour theme down to her shoes. With the high turtleneck, I do think her hair would have been better served in a sleek updo.

Karlie Kloss: The Louis Vuitton Spring 2017 collection has been hit or miss on the red carpet, but Karlie was up for the challenge with this black sheer gown. Both her statuesque height and her simplicity of styling were beneficial here.

Kristin Scott Thomas: Understated was not in the actress’s vocabulary, at least not for this event, as she brought out all the bells and whistles for this Fendi Resort 2017 off-the-shoulder jumpsuit. One would think the flowers and butterflies printed on her outfit would have been quite sufficient, but that was only the beginning with piles of bangles and scarves adding an eccentric, gypset spirit. Of course, her hair was having its own party.

Jennifer Lopez In Michael Kors & Balmain – The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Jennifer Lopez continued her pretty-in-pink streak when she stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday (February 21) to chat about her Las Vegas show and, of course, those Drake dating rumors.

Her ensemble was just as playfully coy as her response to those rumors.

She may have turned the sultry volume down and upped the sweetness with this flowing blouse by Michael Kors worn with an embellished Balmain micro mini skirt. But it still delivered plenty of flirty—and leggy—appeal, naturally.

Metallic Giuseppe Zanotti sandals completed the look that saw a softer, girly side to J. Lo while still echoing her signature sass and glam.

Gillian Anderson In Galvan & Roksanda – ‘Viceroy’s House’ Berlin Film Festival & London Premieres

Gillian Anderson presented two completely different fashion personalities for the premieres of ‘Viceroy’s House,’ the first at the 2017 Berlin International Film Festival on Saturday (February 12) followed by the London premiere on Tuesday (February 21).

Berlin Premiere: Her Galvan Fall 2014 gown may have been from a few seasons ago, but sleek elegance is always in style. The partnership between the perfect plunge and the waist-defining embroidered detail was all this column dress needed to draw you in—no jewels or accessories even required.

London Premiere: While her minimalist approach to styling stayed true here, the look did not have the same freshly alluring simplicity as her Berlin outing. The Roksanda Spring 2017 ‘Alten’ dress aged the actress when paired with the updo, and the white sleeves were rather all-encompassing by virtue of their wing-like form and bright colour.

Alessandra Ambrosio In Maria Lucia Hohan – VOGUE Brazil Carnival Ball 2017

Alessandra Ambrosio was seen celebrating the VOGUE Brazil Carnival Ball 2017 in Rio de Janeiro on Friday (February 16).

I can imagine the supermodel twirling around in this Maria Lucia Hohan shimmering party gown all night long, taking supreme advantage of the skirt that was made to go for a spin.

Elegantly feminine fun was served up here, with a final flourish in the top knot and ruby red lip, for a dress that strayed away from the more overtly revealing sexiness that Alessandra can favour.
