Malin Akerman In Sebastian Gunawan Red & Gosia Baczynska – Monte Carlo TV Festival Opening Ceremony & ‘Billions’ Photocal

Malin Akerman attended the Monte Carlo TV Festival Opening Ceremony on Friday (June 16) and the ‘Billions’ Photocall on Saturday (June 17), both in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

Opening Ceremony: While I cannot fault her sleek styling of his Sebastian Gunawan Red lace jumpsuit, I wonder if a darker lining would have elevated the look into a more elegant territory. The lighter, off-white lining, while highlighting the beautiful patterning, can feel a bit dated and forced. An Edie Parker ‘Rebekah’ clutch completed her look.

Photocall: Malin’s second look couldn’t have been more different, as this Gosia Baczynska patterned suit embraced a far more adventurous, fresh approach with strong graphic impact. Some might find the jacket boxy, but I was too taken by the ensemble’s eye-catching appeal. A Jason of Beverly Hills ring and Neil J Rodgers shoes completed the retro-forward look.

Zhang Ziyi In Tom Ford – 2017 Vogue Film Gala

Zhang Ziyi put the power of an LBD to work for her at the 2017 Vogue Film Gala on Friday (June 16) in Shanghai, China.

I love the relaxed off-the-shoulder asymmetry presented in this Tom Ford Fall 2017 velvet mini, which created a sassy swankiness of form.

But, let’s face it. This look was as much about the dress as the jewels—if not more so. Bejeweled bangles, ring, timepiece, and earrings all took centre stage against the canvas of the frock.

To round it out, she naturally brought the silver platforms out to play which somewhat compromised the elegance ratio.

Araya A. Hargate In Ralph & Russo Couture & Giambattista Valli Couture – 2017 Shanghai International Film Festival

Araya A. Hargate amazed us at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival for her ultimate command of head-turning maternity style. At the 2017 Shanghai International Film Festival over the weekend (July 17 and 18), she kept her mama-to-be style statements going strong.

First up, she offered up a purely feminine and romantic stance with this petal-pink organza robe gown from the Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture collection. Long waves cascading around her shoulders played right into the dreamy boudoir mood. A Jaeger-LeCoultre watch paid homage to the official watch of the festival.

Laura Haddock In Emilia Wickstead – ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ London Premiere

Joining Isabela Moner at the ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ London premiere on Sunday (June 18), Laura Haddock took a delightfully chic perspective with her monochromatic, blush gown.

The Emilia Wickstead Resort 2018 gown was minimal in design, thus proving that sometimes no embellishment or bells and whistles are needed for that sway of magical charm—just a beautifully feminine hue and a pristinely sweeping silhouette.

A sleek bun, wrapped in pink, continued the pretty-in-pastel mood.

Because of the cut or the colour—or both—I was reminded of Gwyneth Paltrow’s pink Ralph Lauren gown from the 1999 Oscars. Yet, Laura’s maintained a freshly modern aura that provided a spirited new perspective.

Isabela Moner In Yanina Couture – ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ London Premiere

The promo tour for the ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ continued in London, with Isabela Moner in attendance at the premiere on Sunday (June 18).

Her China premiere look may have been cheekily on theme, but here her transformation for the evening was into that of a partial peacock with this Yanina Fall 2016 Couture gown that was likewise tufted in feathered plumes—as any good bird dress should be.

Execution-wise, the illusion neckline left just a bit to be desired as did the visible lining underneath; it would have done better in a similar blue-gray colour.

Whimsical though it was, it achieved said effect in a more dated, ice-dancing costume mood. Would you agree?

Marion Cotillard In Chloé – 31st Cabourg Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Marion Cotillard opted for an understated vision of glamour at the closing ceremony of the 31st Cabourg Film Festival on Saturday (June 17) in Cabourg, France.

In what continues as her more experimental, post-Dior phase, the actress wore a Chloé Resort 2018 peplum dress emboldened by a flash of metal throughout.

Attempting to imbue further edge into the frock’s more conservative shape, she styled a half side braid into her locks.

Did her latest look shine for you, or fall flat?
