Solange Knowles In Stephane Rolland Couture – ‘Bessie’ LA Premiere

Solange Knowles In Stephane Rolland Couture - 'Bessie' LA Premiere
Solange Knowles attended the ‘Bessie’ premiere in Los Angeles, California on Thursday (May 14), where she performed a surprise show.

Showing that she needs neither colour nor print to make an impact, she donned a sleek Stephane Rolland Couture belted, asymmetrical dress, accessorized with matching nude Tamara Mellon sandals, a metallic Lee Savage clutch and Jennifer Fisher jewels.

I love the architecture of the cape that delivered both sophistication and directional edge.

Film Independent At LACMA Special Screening Of ‘Mad Men’

Film Independent At LACMA Special Screening Of 'Mad Men'
The Film Independent at LACMA special screening of the final episode of ‘Mad Men’ was on Sunday (May 17) at The Ace Hotel Theatre in Los Angeles, California, where the stars showed up, many who also attended the Television Academy’s ‘Mad Men’ series farewell event on the same day.

Elisabeth Moss
: As I urged the use of a colourful shoe for her previous look at the farewell event, these orange Jerome C. Rousseau ‘Bryant’ peep-toe pumps should have delighted. But they just don’t make sense with this Romona Keveza Fall 2015 black and white dress. A metallic pair that echoed the embellished belt would have been a better choice.

Kiernan Shipka: The starlet charmed in a Valentino Pre-Fall 2015 frock, where the prairie-girl top was given an edge with the perforated leather skirt. Silver sandals and Kwiat jewels completed the sweet-chic look.

Jessica Pare: Staying in very safe territory, Jessica wore a plain-Jane SAFiYAA little black dress that was enlivened a bit with Nicholas Kirkwood embellished pumps and a red lip.

Emma Stone In Brook Collection & Ulyana Sergeenko Couture – ‘Aloha’ Photocall & Premiere

Emma Stone In Brook Collection &  Ulyana Sergeenko Couture - 'Aloha' Photocall & Premiere

Emma Stone attended the ‘Aloha’ photocall and premiere at Soho Hotel in London, England on Saturday (May 16).

Photocall: Posing with Bradley Cooper at her side, the actress wore a Brook Collection Fall 2015 beige sweater top and pleated skirt with matching Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals that had nothing of the vibrant ‘aloha’ spirit in it. There is minimalism and then there is boring, and I’m stifling a yawn right now.

Premiere: Her second look was far more inspiring, as she donned a Ulyana Sergeenko Spring 2015 Couture floral-printed dress, shaped by a mock peplum. Some may fault the length, but I was more put off by the white colour of her Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle Follies’ pumps. Her coral-pink lip redeemed the feminine look.

Britt Robertson In Christopher Kane & Christian Dior – ‘Tomorrowland: A World Beyond’ London Premiere & Photocall

Britt Robertson In Christopher Kane & Christian Dior - 'Tomorrowland A World Beyond' London Premiere & Photocall
Britt Robertson attended the ‘Tomorrowland: A World Beyond’ London photocall on Monday (May 18) at Claridge’s Hotel the day after the film’s premiere on Sunday (May 17), which was hosted at Odeon Leicester Square in London, England.

Premiere: Modified from the runway, this Christopher Kane Fall 2015 dress was done no favours by its shortened length and red sheen, which in effect created a costume. And, it goes without saying that the black pumps were all wrong.

Photocall: Much more successful was Britt’s photocall look that had a youthfully sophisticated charm with her Christian Dior printed dress and complementary Barbara Bui studded red shoes.

Television Academy’s Farewell to Mad Men Event

Television Academy's Farewell to Mad Men event

The Television Academy hosted a farewell event for the popular television series, ‘Mad Men,’ at The Montalbán in Hollywood, California on Sunday (May 17), where the show’s leading ladies made an appearance.

January Jones: The line motif of the Jil Sander Fall 2015 collection was readily apparent in January’s ensemble, as she walked her own line in this ensemble that was all about precision. The pop of baby-blue was beautiful against the sharper edges, but the look seemed a bit too strict and forced, and the black pumps did nothing to lighten the mood.

Elisabeth Moss: Her Chikimiki Fall 2015 pleated and colour-blocked dress would have come across as more vibrant with a brighter lip and a bold shoe to magnify the hues of the frock.

Christina Hendricks: Christina arguably had the most fun with her magenta suit and embellished pumps, although the look had a more mannish spirit than we are accustomed to seeing from the curvaceous actress. Her lighter strawberry locks may continue to be a letdown here, especially for those who appreciated the vibrancy of her more fiery strands.

Charlize Theron In Givenchy Couture – Life Ball 2015

Charlize Theron In Givenchy Couture - Life Ball 2015

Charlize Theron spoke at the Life Ball 2015 at City Hall in Vienna, Austria on Saturday (May 16).

Succumbing to the sheer madness, even the actress was not immune to the see-through trend in a Givenchy Couture design notable for its bold, embellished tribal patterning in addition to the lacy perforated skirt.

The dress was quite complex, some may say overworked, so she paired it simply with black Givenchy sandals.

I wish her effortless ponytail and diamond earrings had a more sleek gown counterpart to fully maximize her beautiful on-stage presence.
