M.I.A. In Roberto Cavalli – ‘Matangi/Maya/M.I.A.’ Berlinale International Film Festival Press Conference

M.I.A. was at the press conference for her documentary, ‘Matangi/Maya/M.I.A.’, during the Berlinale International Film Festival on Saturday (February 17) in Berlin, Germany.

She walked on the wild side in more ways than one with her Roberto Cavalli Pre-Fall 2018 ensemble that riffed on zebra stripes in a bold palette of hot orange.

The animal print continued right down to her snakeskin-esque booties that added the quirky touch we’d expect from the entertainer.

That said, I’m glad she opted for the statement jacket to really amp up the look—even if I could have easily seen her wear the print from top to toe.

Isabelle Huppert In Roberto Cavalli – ‘Eva’ Berlinale International Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Also having a busy Saturday (February 17) before the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday, Isabelle Huppert navigated the Berlinale International Film Festival in support of the film, ‘Eva.’

Press Conference: Elegant, modern, and effortless—with that nonchalant Parisian chicness that Isabelle commands so well—this Roberto Cavalli Spring 2018 jumpsuit was a sleek, cool moment at the press conference.

Premiere: Isabelle isn’t afraid to rock a suit nor embellishment, and here, she merged both. I was all for the luminous look until my eye followed the trouser line to the floor. The pants desperately needed a proper hem—and a pair of shoes not taken from Lady Gaga’s closet.

Angelina Jolie In Elie Saab Couture – 32nd Annual American Society Of Cinematographers Awards

Before her breathtaking entrance at the 2018 BAFTAs, Angelina Jolie was at the 32nd Annual American Society Of Cinematographers Awards on Saturday (February 17) in Hollywood, California, where she was presented with the Board of Governors award.

There were a couple surprises with this Elie Saab Spring 2018 Couture confection.

1. The ethereal lace gown was rendered in champagne gold, rather than Angelina’s favoured black hue.

2. It was a far more decorative, glimmering take on red-carpet glamour than we’d normally expect from her more conservative statements.

3. The same goes for the nearly fairy-tale wispiness and whimsicality of the gown that was a different direction for her.

Did it work its magic for you?

Jennifer Lawrence In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Jennifer Lawrence was of course in Dior Couture for the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18).

The union has had its ups and downs, but things have been nothing but plain sailing in recent times.

This was perfectly demonstrated by her Spring 2018 Couture black tuxedo gown featuring pale-pink stole sleeves embroidered with organza flowers.

On one had the look is classically timeless, yet on the other, it possesses contemporary vision.

I’m in total awe.

Lupita Nyong’o In Elie Saab Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

I was most looking forward to seeing Lupita Nyong’o at the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18), following her hot streak from her ‘Black Panther’ promo tour, and she didn’t let me down.

Many of you are bored with the standard Elie Saab Couture gown decked out in feathers and sequins, so this ‘Game of Thrones-esqe’ medieval gown should come as a refreshing change.

I had always pictured this look for Gal Gadot, as the look screams ‘warrior queen’, but the tougher side to the classic Elie Saab woman translates beautiful on Lupita, as no one does regal elegance quite like she does.

Kate Mara In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Kate Mara left us well and truly baffled by her red carpet choice for the pre-party, so I’m delighted to see her redeem herself for the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18).

Lining the bodice with the same hue as the skirt to ensure the look felt more cohesive was the right thing to do for this Christian Dior Fall 2017 Couture gown.

One could say that this is the true definition of “doing a 180”, as her gold jewels and Dior clutch perfectly complemented the gown enhancing the richness of it all.

If I wanted to find something to nitpick, I would say that I wish her hair had a bit more life to it. A chignon or a updo would’ve been preferred.

Allison Janney In Bibhu Mohapatra – 2018 BAFTAs

Allison Janney joined her ‘I, Tonya’ co-star Margot Robbie, on the red carpet for the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18).

Much like her with her Mario Dice Golden Globe Awards gown, Allison opted to keep things interesting with a unique twist on the black dress code.

This Bibhu Mohapatra Fall 2018 gown is not an easy look to pull off.

I didn’t love it at first, but the unique construction quickly grew on me.

We’ve already had a black velvet moment, so I was ready for one that was thinking outside the box.

Messika earrings completed her tricky look.
