Elle Fanning In Ganni – ‘Galveston’ SXSW Festival Premiere

Elle Fanning also made her way to Austin, Texas over the weekend for the 2018 SXSW Conference and Festival, attending the premiere of ‘Galveston’ on Saturday (March 10).

We may have once thought of Elle as a girly style girl. But, she’s broken out of that mold with her own kind of directional edge.

I love how the more mannish, work-wear aesthetic of this Ganni Fall 2017 pinstripe jumpsuit took on forward flair with her Freda Salvador oxford lace-up mules and that Prada comic-print clutch that packed on the attitude.

Rosy-tinged makeup and casually styled blonde locks ensured the look didn’t translate as too contrived.

Olivia Wilde In Carolina Herrera – ‘A Vigilante’ SXSW Festival Premiere

Olivia Wilde electrified the red carpet at the 2018 SXSW Festival premiere of ‘A Vigilante’ on Saturday (March 10) in Austin, Texas.

This Carolina Herrera Fall 2018 embossed shirt dress was a lovely revelation, with the actress intensifying its vintage mood via her wide belt and Chloe Gosselin velveteen, embellished shoes.

While on some, the effect may have stepped into matronly territory, on Olivia, her styling offered just the opposite mood.

Her sleek bob and subtle teal-blue smoky eye ensured that modern femininity was fully present and accounted for.

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton – ‘Tomb Raider’ Mexico City Premiere

Alicia Vikander continues to intrigue me with her delightfully feminine and unforced interpretations of the Louis Vuitton label.

The ‘Tomb Raider’ Mexico City premiere on Saturday (March 10) saw her continuing in a more boho vein that we saw in Stockholm.

Edginess was replaced by a delicate, romantic quality in this custom, off-the-shoulder Louis Vuitton lemon-yellow dress.

Her bejeweled accessories, including a hair jewelry, only echoed that more precious, free-spirited sentiment.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Andreas Kronthaler for Vivenne Westwood – ‘Fast Color’ SXSW Festival Premiere

The 2018 SXSW Conference and Festival is in full swing, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw was in Austin, Texas over the weekend for the ‘Fast Color’ SXSW premiere on Saturday (March 10).

To say that I preferred her variation on this Andreas Kronthaler for Vivenne Westwood Spring 2018 micro-check dress to the original would be a gross understatement.

The actress brought such a radiant interpretation of the signature VW draped silhouette that was at once vintage-inspired and thoroughly modern.

More pretty. Less punk. And I was fully on board.

She even sold me on the languid drama of the robe-like, belted coat, which she added atop the dress whilst on stage.

Elizabeth Debicki In Bottega Veneta – ‘Peter Rabbit’ UK Gala Premiere

As the promo tour for ‘Peter Rabbit’ continues, a UK Gala screening of the film commenced on Sunday (March 11) in London, England.

Elizabeth Debicki was naturally on hand. What first jumped out at me about her Bottega Veneta Pre-Fall 2018 look was the artsy, graphic rush of geometric, mixed patterns in the micro-sequin dress and complementary smock-like jacket with paillette trim.

I love how her smoky eye makeup echoed the cool tones of the palette and quickly crushed any matronly vibes of the jacket.

I appreciate the directional attitude of both pieces together, however, a part of me really just wanted to see the frock stand alone, too.
