Gabrielle Union In Prabal Gurung – 2018 Met Gala

Gabrielle Union never met a bold hue she didn’t love—or wear—so I wasn’t surprised to see her flaunt this sunny-yellow shade at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

I’m sure some will see this Prabal Gurung gown as marching slightly askance of the night’s theme, even if the long train did echo what I’m sure will be an ongoing train trend tonight.

Regardless, it made for a powerful statement, with the dangerously high slit putting seductive new meaning into “Sunday best.”

Kate Bosworth In Oscar de la Renta – 2018 Met Gala

The influence of the 2018 Met Gala’s ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ theme wouldn’t be lost on Kate Bosworth on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

This diaphanous, gold-dusted Oscar de la Renta gown was beguiling simply by virtue of its fairy-like quality, as the actress floated onto the red carpet with the sweet innocence of porcelain doll makeup.

The pearl-embellished veil, of course, was the element that contributed to the evening’s M.O., with the undoubted bridal influences taking the look to another level.

Kiersey Clemons In H&M – 2018 Met Gala

Kiersey Clemons was a golden goddess at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

As you might have been in disbelief that Olivia Munn was in the H&M Conscious Collection, Kiersey also may have surprised you once you found out this was an H&M gown.

I was entranced by the construction of the dress with its intricate, lattice-work embellishment that certainly paid homage to a modern interpretation of ‘Heavenly Bodies.’

I love how the starlet matched her golden buzz cut to her metallic moment here for another level of radiance.

Voices In Displacement Gala

Amber Heard and Kourtney Kardashian were both in attendance at the Voices in Displacement Gala on Friday (May 4) in Beverly Hills, California.

Amber Heard: The actress generally tends to favour looks that are both sharply structured but also plenty sensual in mood. Such was the case here with this Brock Collection Pre-Fall 2018 look that paired the nipped-in, tailored peplum top with the seductiveness of her sheer lace skirt.

Kourtney Kardashian: Also opting for a sheer factor, Kourtney donned a Dundas Fall 2018 fringed dress that seemed more fitting for a music festival like Coachella than a gala. But, I do like that she kept the styling of the look so classic and sleek.

Parisa Fitz-Henley In Maria Lucia Hohan – ‘Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance’ LA Premiere

I was swooning the minute I saw Parisa Fitz-Henley at the LA premiere of ‘Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance’ on Thursday (May 3), in which the actress plays Meghan Markle.

Where to even begin?

The shimmering, rose-touched fuchsia hue.
The figure-flattering criss-cross waist.
The flirtation of the open back.
The contrast of strength and softness between the bold shoulder and the draped sleeve.

Shall I go on? Because I could.

This was a joyous look that was easy to adore, and Parisa wore it with such radiance. Would you agree?

Victoria Justice at the 144th Kentucky Derby

Mint-julep-spiked day parties and all the fashionable fascinators marked the 144th Kentucky Derby that was held this past weekend, and Victoria Justice was dressed to dazzle at two Derby events in Louisville, Kentucky.

Kentucky Derby Unbridled Eve Gala: On Friday (May 4), she kicked off her Derby run with this allover sequin Romona Keveza gown. Some may see bridal tinges here, but what I also saw was the simplicity of unabashed glamour, complete with old Hollywood waves and a classic red lip.

Kentucky Derby: The white theme continued the next day (May 5) at Churchill Downs with the relaxed crispness of this tailored set. Clearly, the Kate Spade New York ‘Wild One Horse Statement Earrings’ were meant to be the star of the show, even if they had a bit of competition with the literal feather in her cap. She could have definitely done without the studded bag, though, as the only thing that needed to be spiked were those mint juleps.

2018 GLAAD Media Awards

A range of stars were in attendance at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards, which were held over the weekend on Saturday (May 5) in New York City.

Lea Michele: The newly engaged star had her own fairy-tale moment in this Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2018 dress that provided a modern translation on princess glamour with the glinting, metallic bodice and shortened ball skirt. A braided updo was naturally the only way to complete the picture.

Tommy Dorfman: Never one to not push the envelope just a bit, Tommy matched his hair to his aubergine Calvin Klein Spring 2018 suit with more unorthodox detailing attributed to the singular panel detail on the white tank.

Alexis Bledel: I think what enchanted me most about Alexis’ J. Mendel Spring 2018 dress was how its shimmery aqua hue fully enhanced her striking eyes and fuchsia lip. More metallics came into play with her Emm Kuo clutch and silver Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Zaha’ sandals to top off the look that also had a cinematic, vintage flair.
