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.

Priyanka Chopra In Monique Lhuillier – Disney Media Distribution International Upfronts

Priyanka Chopra In  Monique Lhuillier - Disney Media Distribution International Upfronts

Priyanka Chopra attended the Disney Media Distribution International Upfronts at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California on Sunday (May 17).

Relying on the lacy sheer route that has been a ubiquitous staple on the red carpet, the Bollywood singer-actress wore a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 strapless, asymmetrical frock.

The zesty pop of the bright coral pumps was likely added in an effort to invigorate the gray-toned ensemble, and I appreciate the effort as I will rarely argue with a colourful statement shoe.

But, here, the look just translates as disjointed, especially taking into consideration the half-braided hair and armor ring.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

While tasteless was the dominant trend at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday night (May 17), I was grateful to see that a few good men brought some class back to the show. Here, a look at some of the Billboard styles plus a look at the latest round of gentleman at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.

Matthew McConaughey: His terribly scruffy beard had no place this glossy Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit at ‘The Sea of Trees’ premiere, which he attended with Naomi Watts during the Cannes Film Fest on Saturday (May 16). The nightshade hue of his jacket was divine though. Will the facial hair ever meet a razor.

Nick Jonas
: Also rocking an inspiring eggplant shade, Nick looked mighty fine in his monochromatic Kenzo suit at the Billboard Music Awards, although the pants could have been less slouchy and rumpled. His plus one, Olivia Culpo, was among the girls in sparkly, skin-baring attire, hers a black Elie Saab playsuit that still ranked as more tasteful than some of the other sartorial tragedies of the night.

Taylor Swift In Balmain – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Taylor Swift In Balmain - 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Taylor Swift was among the stars at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, hosted at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17).

It was a big night for her, as she not only premiered her music video for ‘Bad Blood,’ she also collected a few more trophies for her cabinet, most notably securing the Top Artist win.

For the occasion, she joined the Balmain beauties and opted for a Balmain Spring 2015 sparkling white jumpsuit with sultry cutouts that still landed on the right side of sexy.

I loved seeing Taylor sport this edgy, retro-rock look—worn with a super-smoky eye and textured, messy bob—which was all suited to the event and continues to see her inching away from what was once her standard girly style.

In sassy reference to her song, she accessorized with an Edie Parker ‘Bad Blood’ black clutch for the perfect finishing touch.

Iggy Azalea – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Iggy Azalea - 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Iggy Azalea attended the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, hosted at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17), where she performed with Britney Spears.

While I called some elements of Britney’s look dated, I am forced to use that same word again when it comes to the Aussie rapper’s ensemble that also nearly approached comical territory.

The baby-blue two-piece was tragic enough without the addition of dip-dyed, cotton-candy-pink locks and satin magenta pumps.

She can do so much better.
