Sofia Carson In Monique Lhuillier – 2017 Saks Fifth Avenue & Disney ‘Once Upon A Holiday’

Sofia Carson performed at the 2017 Saks Fifth Avenue & Disney ‘Once Upon A Holiday’ window unveiling on Monday (November 20) in New York City.

The singer and actress might be making long gloves her signature accessory as she donned a similar pair at the 2017 Person of the Year Gala.

I must admit that I did have a sense of déjà vu at her Monique Lhuillier Fall 2017 ensemble as it did possess many of the same elements as her gala look.

If I just focus on the present outfit, it still had a magical fairy tale quality from the mix of rich fabrics and long proportions. It is certainly worthy of a performance ensemble.

Had she not been moving about, I would have liked to see the tulle cape worn over her shoulders to really appreciate its sheer finish.

You may remember that Deepika Padukone wore this same gown, sans cape, to the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar party.

Gwen Stefani In Elie Saab & Celia Kritharioti Couture – Lights The Empire State Building & The Today Show

Gwen Stefani put her own riff on holiday dressing, first lighting the Empire State Building to promote ‘The Holiday Light Show’ on Monday (November 20) in New York City.

The singer eschewed the traditional Christmas colours for a black Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2017 dress.

The maxi version from the runway was shortened to a flippy mini, which enhanced the sweetness of the black heart bodice.

The dark colour palette and the sultry accessories prevented the look from becoming costume-y or saccharine. It was fun and flirty, and made me recall her Harajuku period.

Crystal Reed In J. Mendel – 45th International Emmy Awards

Crystal Reed looked beautiful at the 45th International Emmy Awards on Monday (November 20) in New York City.

Her J. Mendel Fall 2017 gown had a magnificent textural quality courtesy of the whimsical bands decorating the full skirt.

The sheer panels provided a lightness to the feather-like tufts of white and soft peach, creating an ethereal effect.

Pale gowns in neutral shades can sometimes wash out the wearer, but the embellished maxi had a flattering warmth which enlivened the ‘Gotham’ star’s complexion.

The black belt tied things up perfectly, echoing the sheer stripes.

Catherine Zeta Jones In Temperley London – British Luxury Awards

Catherine Zeta Jones hosted the British Luxury Awards in London on Monday (November 21).

The gorgeous Welsh actress wore an equally gorgeous Temperley London Fall 2017 gown for the occasion.

Lined from the runway, yet still maintaining it majestic allure, Catherine was the very pictures of elegance and sophistication.

Arizona Muse In Elie Saab & Ralph & Russo Couture – Chain Of Hope Gala Ball & Aquazzura x Dinner

Arizona Muse made two captivating entrances over the weekend—first at the Chain Of Hope Gala Ball on Friday (November 17) in London, England then at the Aquazzura x Dinner in Vienna, Austria the next night (November 18).

Chain Of Hope Gala Ball: I will always have a weakness for a good cape, and that was never more true than in the sweeping rendition seen in this Elie Saab Fall 2017 Couture design. The effect was altogether regal with a fantasy allure in the wash of the watercolour ombre. Seeing the metal belt on the runway left me wishing she had kept that element, though.

Sofia Boutella In Sonia Rykiel – Go Campaign Gala

Sofia Boutella joined Lily Collins for the Go Campaign Gala on Saturday (November 18) in Hollywood, California.

I was immediately drawn to her Sonia Rykiel Resort 2018 floral ensemble, not only for its bold floral motif, but also for its intriguing fusion of suiting and lounge wear.

Given the looser styling that may resonate with some as PJs, I didn’t even miss the lookbook’s belt. Sofia’s presentation had an easy flair that still featured plenty of edge—especially with her straight bob.

Her currently favoured locket necklace rounded out the look.
