Hayley Atwell In Jenny Packham – British Independent Film Awards 2017

Hayley Atwell attended the British Independent Film Awards on Sunday (December 10) on Old Billingsgate in London.

As a bridal gown, this Jenny Packham dress works.

As a red carpet gown, I have to say it’s possibly one my least favourite looks of the night.

Dated is a word that is used often, but it very much applies in this case.

Factor in the out-of-place black clutch and this look is only gorgeous from the neck up.

Rita Ora In Esteban Cortazar – Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball

Rita Ora wouldn’t be easily missed at the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball on Saturday (December 9) in London, England.

I was immediately mesmerized by the sophisticated sass of the fur motif characterizing this Esteban Cortazar Fall 2017 red tapestry coat, which she wore as a dress.

I love the quirky play on proportions with the exaggerated shoulder cape and muff-like sleeves.

This is what I want to waltz into a winter wonderland wearing.

More holiday-red hues topped off the look with her lipstick and Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Charline’ sandals.

Gina Rodriguez In Georges Chakra Couture – ‘Ferdinand’ LA Screening

Gina Rodriguez was at the LA screening of ‘Ferdinand’ on Sunday (December 10).

What often strikes me about the actress’ style is how she shifts from sultry to sweet statements.

Opting for the latter this time around, she charmed in a Georges Chakra Fall 2017 Couture embellished gown that had a sense of girly fun along with the intricacy of its design.

The rich palette of colours and feathery wisps of embroidery were the statement-makers of this dress.

I did slightly miss the original above-the-ankle silhouette, as I think it added a bit of panache to the proportions. But, that would be a nitpick to an otherwise lovely look.

Allison Williams In The Row – British Independent Film Awards 2017

Allison Williams also joined the list at the British Independent Film Awards 2017 on Sunday (December 10) on Old Billingsgate in London.

While some may be left uninspired by her minimalist statement from Spring 2018 collection of The Row, there was something striking in its languid, slip-dress allure that made no apologies for its extreme simplicity.

I like how her blonde waves echoed the effortless nonchalance of the look.

Did you like the pared-back nature of her styling, or were you left wishing for something more?

Issa Rae In A.L.C. & TOME – 8th Annual Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Finale & No Commission Event

Issa Rae is not one to shy away from rich hues and bold, dynamic prints, and she checked the box on both in Miami, Florida while hosting the 8th Annual Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Finale on Friday (December 8) before attending the No Commission event during Art Basel on Saturday (December 9).

Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Finale: I love the intense marigold shade of this A.L.C Spring 2018 dress paired with the tonal plisse trousers for an unexpected, breezy finish.

No Commission Event at Art Basel: Weather-appropriate for her sunny, South Beach surrounds, this TOME Resort 2017 dress played on the graphic nature of stripes. The pumps left me puzzled, though, as a sandal would have been much preferred.

Andrea Riseborough In Erdem – British Independent Film Awards 2017

Andrea Riseborough joined a constellation of other stars at the British Independent Film Awards 2017 on Sunday (December 10) on Old Billingsgate in London.

As the platinum-haired British actress continues to redefine her chameleon-like style, she mixed the tough chicness of her blunt bob with the delicate femininity of this softly glinting Erdem Spring 2018 embellished, tiered design.

While her posture caused me some manner of pause for the look in general—and to wonder if the dress wasn’t about to just slide right down—I love how she melded the bold attitude encapsulated in her hot-pink lip with the petal-pink, vintage glamour of the design.

What about you?
