Celebrities Love…Monochromatic Dressing

Donning color is a surefire way to make an outfit pop, especially when it’s expertly styled from head-to-toe.

Monochromatic dressing has once again resurfaced as one of summer’s major styling tips and fashion-forward celebrities have been pushing the limits of this trends to new heights—by strutting their best street-style looks in vibrant hues, soft neutrals, and varying shades in the same color family.

Bella Hadid: Dusty rose can be feminine by nature, but Bella Hadid’s look embraces the hue with a new sense of attitude by pairing a cropped crisscross top, slouchy pants and coordinating pointy-toe boots. Finish the look with a chain-link choker and knuckle rings for savvy street-style.

Hailey Baldwin: Fashion is full of surprises and when styled to a tee a tracksuit can be subtly sexy, especially when you’re decked out in the color of the season, red. The key to nailing a monochrome tracksuit is all about being bold. Hailey’s look commanded the streets in her Balenciaga sweatshirt, Danielle Guizio track pants, DSquared2 lace-up heels and topped it off with large gold hoops.

Kendall Jenner: Grey can often be a subdued hue, but Kendall Jenner’s latest monochromatic interpretation of the mild color is anything but. Take your next style cute by mixing chunky knit, two-toned gray jeans, white boots and a gray beanie for a look that will surely stand out in a crowd.

Zoë Kravitz: The famed actress is a style savant by nature and her utterly cool fashion sense never disappoints—even her off-duty style. For a sophisticated take on neutral monochromatic dressing opt for hues in soft oatmeal, tan and a dose of mahogany for simplistic style at its finest. Keep the neutral theme going by extending it with camel pointy-toed flats.

Celebrities Love…Roberi & Fraud Sunglasses

Hitting the bustling streets of New York is no easy feat. It not only requires a noteworthy street-style ensemble, but a standout of pair of shades that causes onlookers to do a double-take.

New York based, Roberi & Fraud is the next brand to emerge with a wave of sunglasses that have caught the eye of the style-set. The line’s irresistible ‘90s infused designs have even caught the attention of fashion’s mega-models, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Gigi Hadid who can’t help but sport their sleek shades at any given moment.

If you’re a risk taker like Bella, don’t hesitate to pair your gold Doris shades with an equally eye-catching oversized orange coat and if you’re a downtown girl at heart—a la Kendall Jenner—wear your black Betty sunglasses with a leather beret, graphic tee and pink jeans. As for Gigi Hadid—the reigning queen of style—you can’t go wrong with an emblazoned aqua blue sweatshirt, jeans and solid black Doris shades.

Whether you’re a full-blown ‘90s aficionado—go with the Doris shades—or if you prefer a classic Betty cat-eye, Roberi & Fraud’s sunglasses are the ultimate way to achieve sublime style.

Cam Loves…Sunshine Yellow

The sun is always shining for country music singer Cam, who has never met a shade of dazzling yellow that she doesn’t love.

Such a bright hue is not always so warmly embraced by celebrities on the red carpet. But Cam has led us down her yellow brick road, and we’re only too happy to follow her lead.

First up on her style play list, a creamy yellow Christian Siriano confection that was both romantic and radiant, especially with her platinum blonde curls.

At the American Music Awards, her outlook only became even sunnier in a luminous and lemony Maria Lucia Hohan halter gown—punctuated by a light teal eye shadow.

For her third time out in yellow, she skipped a dress in favour of a sexy menswear-inspired Topshop suit at the 2017 ACM Awards. With its boldly saturated goldenrod shade, it was the most striking of the three looks and only further emboldened by her silver metallic heels.

Emily Robinson Loves….White Dresses

White is the new black for up-and-coming starlet Emily Robinson, who’s seemingly never met a white dress she doesn’t like.

What makes her frequent choice of the colour so successful is that, despite the monochrome mood, each and every frock is quite varied as can be seen in the mix of silhouette, styling, and textural dimension in three of her recent looks.

Look 1: With this Carolina Herrera dress, she maintained the epitome of both youthful innocence and ladylike sophistication, with the effortless statement only enhanced by the subtle glitz of embellished metallic heels.

Look 2: A frilled Red Valentino frock was all about schoolgirl charm married with a side of all-grown-up allure.

Look 3: With a nod to the girly lace for which the Self-Portait label is known, this dress ensured plenty of visual interest with its mix of patterns and textures—all topped off with ankle-tie Stella Luna sandals.

You may remember that we even saw the actress’s affinity for white dresses early on, with a floral-printed white look at the 2015 Emmy Awards.

Has she left you inspired to start the spring season on a white note?

Celebrities Love…Burberry’s DK88 Bag

Some handbags just have a certain je ne sais quoi. It’s an ‘x factor’ that makes them so relevant and enviable—and likewise beloved by celebrity darlings.

Such is certainly the case for Burberry’s DK88 bag, named in honour of the house’s code for its signature honey-coloured gabardine, a fabric that’s at the heart of the brand’s history. There’s no question this purse lives up to its heritage name, too, what with its timeless silhouette and classic appeal all crafted in exclusive trench leather.

The structured bag’s clean lines and sculptural handle, coupled with the oversize lock, make it an easy accessory to pair with almost anything. It’s an ideal carry-along for every street-style occasion.

Some of its biggest celebrity fans, including Elizabeth Debicki, Kate Hudson and Naomi Campbell, have shown the versatility of the bag and how it transitions seamlessly from look to look, adding tailored punch to everything from a daytime trench and denim to a night-on-the-town glam statement.

Even better, it comes in 16 saturated yet subtle colourways such as ink blue, blossom pink, moss green, dark chocolate and ochre, and bright toffee that look just as delicious as they sound.

Celebrities Love…Ralph & Russo Couture

The hottest—and hautest—duo in Hollywood right now? None other than designers Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo of Ralph & Russo.

Their Spring 2017 Couture show was made for the red carpet with glorious look after glorious look—55 in total—all with a take-your-breath-away sensibility.

Ethereal draping, sultry bustier styling, cascading ruffles, enchanting arrays of embellishment, sophisticated lines, sculptural silhouettes… such are the magical ways of a Ralph & Russo confection.

So, it’s no wonder that A-listers have fallen in love with the spellbinding styles of these seductive showstoppers.

Celebrity darlings including Hailee Steinfeld, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, Priyanka Chopra, and Sara Sampaio have all gravitated towards the house’s gorgeous gowns.

Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, who strutted in the Spring 2017 Couture show, couldn’t get enough of the designer—bringing the runway to the red carpet with two looks in one night for the Oscars parties.

And, Brie Larson also has two Ralph & Russo gowns to her name now in as many days, first at the Oscars parties then at the ‘Kong: Scull Island’ premiere.

Eight is currently the magic number, as that’s the number of Ralph & Russo dazzlers we’ve seen just since Sunday’s 2017 Oscars.

And I say, keeping them coming—every day of the week.
