Shu Qi In Giorgio Armani – Armani Lipstick Maestro Event

Taiwanese actress Shu Qi made the case for pure drama at the Armani Lipstick Maestro event in Taipei, Taiwan on Thursday (July 13).

Donning a Giorgio Armani Fall 2017 pouf-sleeve gown and opera gloves, she took the original runway variation and modeled it with a different form of theatrical glamour.

By virtue of wearing this dress in monochromatic black, she allowed its shape and statement sleeves to command the sophisticated elegance they deserve.

But, as this was a lipstick event, her perfectly, bold-red pout had just as much of a starring role, with her fascinating geometric earrings enhancing it all the more.

Kristen Bell In Michael Kors Collection – Disney’s D23 EXPO 2017

With the flush of warm-weather velvet and other fall-inspired looks for summer, I’ve been giddy to see uplifting looks that unapologetically embrace the season—like Kristen Bell’s at the Ultimate Disney Fan Event during Disney’s D23 EXPO 2017 in Anaheim, California.

Donning the happiest of vivid floral jacquard prints for the event on Friday (July 14), she brought bright, summery style in spades.

I love how this Michael Kors Collection Spring 2017 bustier top and its coordinating flared midi skirt looked to retro influences for inspiration while maintaining a modern, feminine relevance.

Jennifer Meyer jewels rounded out the adorable-chic statement for this Disney darling.

Charlize Theron In Givenchy – ‘Atomic Blonde’ Berlin Press Junket

I can think of no better hue than a daring, lipstick-red for Charlize Theron’s promotion of ‘Atomic Blonde’ in Berlin, Germany on Saturday (July 15).

The radioactive shade came alive in this tattered-ruffle dress from the Givenchy Fall 2017 collection that coincidentally solely focused on renditions of red.

But, Charlize gave this blouson look a new lease on life by wearing the plunge in front for a higher dose of sizzling appeal.

With such a red-hot statement, the accessorising was kept to a minimum with matching sandals along with a barely-there EF Collection necklace and Graziela Gems ring.

Alesha Dixon In Stella McCartney – ‘Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop A Bad Boy Story’ London Screening

Alesha Dixon was at the ‘Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story’ VIP screening in London back in May, but her outfit has left me green with envy ever since.

One of the metrics of successful style is all about balance, and she achieves that supremely well here with her body-con tank matched to the baggier form of the Stella McCartney Spring 2017 ‘Benni’ wide trousers featuring the on-trend paper-bag waist.

These pants are not for the faint of heart to wear, as the proportions are not easy to pull off. But, Alesha makes it all seem so effortless through her monochromatic styling.

We might normally fault the visible bra, but here the black peek-a-boo effect just adds another layer of intriguing edge—especially when her cropped leather moto jacket comes into play.

Lake Bell wore the navy version of the trousers, as well, but I appreciated Alesha’s first run of them so much more. Would you agree?

Regina Hall In Tadashi Shoji – ‘Girls Trip’ LA Premiere

Regina Hall has showcased great style during her promo tour for ‘Girls Trip’, and that continued for the LA premiere on Thursday (July 13).

I’m sure many will be surprised to discover this is Tadashi Shoji.

Mostly because the designer rarely, if ever, flirts on the side of risqué, which this ocean blue voluminous crepe gown with a mandala embroidered bodice from the Spring 2017 collection more than suggests.

I saw the bold colour first, followed by how radiant Regina is here.

Yes, on the wrong person this may have come across less than favourable; luckily, Regina was the right person.
