Helen Mirren In Escada & Sachin & Babi – L’Oreal Paris Canadian Women of Worth Awards Gala

To say I’m exhausted after the fashion extravaganza of the Oscars weekend would be putting it mildly.

I was just about to start on the best dressed poll to close the week when I saw Dame Helen Mirren.

The British actress attended the L’Oreal Paris Canadian Women of Worth Awards on Thursday (March 8) in Toronto, Canada, in celebration of International Women’s Day.

The colours, oh the colours, of this Escada and Sachin & Babi look hit me like I was having a vitamin B12 shot – as a result, I’m fully awake.

I love how the look appears informal until, then the skirt gives this outfit a modern fairytale ending.

Styled with a Judith Leiber clutch, hot pink Michael Kors shoes and ‘Malachite Deco’ statement earrings by Tory Burch, this is the grand dame at her very best.

Rachael Taylor In Derek Lam & J. Mendel – Build Series & ‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2 New York Premiere

Rachael Taylor put on a colourful display. First, she attended Build Series on Tuesday (March 6). Later, she joined Krysten Ritter at the ‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2 New York premiere on Wednesday (March 7).

Build Series: The actress demonstrated the high impact of colourblocking in a Derek Lam Spring 2018 ensemble. Rather than playing up one of the shades in the skirt, like on the runway, she opted for a black top and heels. Her orange-red lipstick provided a surprising injection of colour, adding to the sunny disposition of the outfit.

‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2 New York Premiere: She turned up the glamour in a J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2018 dress. The rich raspberry frock was strewn with dripping embellishment that made it look like it was coated in prismatic streamers. The long bow provided some relief against the sparkle and created a sharp line on the soft silhouette.

Charlize Theron In Givenchy – Jimmy Kimmel Live

Following the ‘Gringo’ LA premiere, Charlize Theron stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday (March 7) to promote the film.

She showed a softer side in a Givenchy Pre-Fall 2018 ensemble, which had a poetic romance with the sharp knife pleating of the skirt contrasting the feminine charm of the blouse.

As per the lookbook, she cinched the outfit with a leather belt, playing up the western nature of the accessory with a pair of tall boots.

I was charmed by the two-tone boots the look was originally styled with, but I find myself enjoying the sophisticated juxtaposition of the actress’s look, especially as she has punctuated it with bright red lipstick to tie in the belt.

Were you a fan of the boots?

Jennifer Lopez In Ashi Studio – World of Dance

The season 2 premiere of ‘World of Dance’ started this week, with judge Jennifer Lopez back in the hot seat.

She looked smoking hot wearing an Ashi Studio Spring 2018 two piece look amped up with killer studded platforms.

When it comes to the blouse, I much prefer Jennifer’s sensual gauzy piece over the runway whose bib injects a bit too much formality.

A JLo look wouldn’t be complete without some customary bling, but it’s contrasting deep rouge lip which really captures my attention here.

Hailee Steinfeld In Elena Reva – SiriusXM

Hailee Steinfeld paid a visit to SiriusXM on Wednesday (March 7) in New York City.

The singer and actress demonstrated how sophisticated denim can be in an Elena Reva Fall 2017 dress.

It was a fashion-forward look with the asymmetric skirt, but she carried it off in a playful, chic manner that didn’t feel contrived at all.

Tom Ford shoes were the perfect addition as the white toes brought out the seams in the frock.

She has been having a lot of fun with fashion and I’m intrigued to see what she will wear next.

Krysten Ritter In Cushnie et Ochs – ‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2 Premiere

Krysten Ritter cut a sultry figure at the ‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2 premiere in New York City on Wednesday (March 7).

Black and red are favourite colours of the actress so this silver Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2018 gown was a departure, but a happy one at that.

The prismatic fabric enlivens the long-sleeved style, increasing the sensual allure of the slit and open neckline.

It’s the sort of fabric that reveals every crease so the decision to pair it with bedhead locks could have created a messy effect, but she has carried it off in a sizzling fashion.

Silver shoes and jewels from Swarovski and Dean Davidson finished the sexy style.
