Kyra Sedgwick In Akris – ‘Story of a Girl’ New York Screening & The View

Kyra Sedgwick was at the ‘Story of a Girl’ New York screening on Tuesday (July 17) before continuing her promotional efforts on ‘The View’ the next day, Wednesday (July 18).

‘Story of a Girl’ Screening: While she didn’t hop on the summer velvet bandwagon, Kyra did wear fall-ready suede in this Akris navy jumpsuit. But, it still maintained a lighter edge with the sleeveless silhouette and simple, clean lines.

‘The View’: With another Akris look, she fully embraced summer this time out in a silk-printed sun dress that was everything it should have been on her—feminine, flirty, and vibrant. I can also appreciate that she didn’t play it safe with her shoes, instead echoing the cherry-red print with her sandals.

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?

Mena Suvari In Polite – ‘Becks’ 2017 Outfest Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival Screening

Mena Suvari wore a Polite Spring 2017 two-piece look with Tamara Mellon sandals to the 2017 Outfest Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival screening of ‘Becks’ on Sunday (July 9).

I love how the playfulness of the polka dots infuses modern flair to the retro silhouette.

The undone ponytail and effortless styling purposely kept this look breezy and effortless.

Are you as charmed by this hybrid look as I am?

Gwyneth Paltrow In Burberry – goop Hosts ‘Despicable Me 3’ Screening

Gwyneth Paltrow and goop hosted a screening of ‘Despicable Me 3’ on Wednesday (July 5) in Southampton, New York.

Given the adorable kiddie-friendly occasion, it was only fitting for Gwynnie to wear an equally adorable frock in this Burberry pink-and-white lace design.

The sweet dress was accompanied by blush-nude sandals that all but disappeared alongside a brighter watermelon lip.

Yet, the ongoing mood of the look was no-muss, no-fuss with her au natural eye makeup and her ubiquitous straight locks. However, I do think a wavy style or a sleek bun would have elevated the charm of the feminine look even more.

Zoe Kazan In Erdem – ‘The Big Sick’ London Screening

Zoe Kazan attended a special screening of ‘The Big Sick’ on Wednesday (July 5) in London.

For some reason I always have Zoe down as a bit of a goth, but this Erdem Fall 2017 gown dispels that notion with it notes of Victoriana melding into a modern-romantic vision of femininity.

Adding contemporary touches via the metallic sandals and Olympia le Tan clutch stands this look in good stead.

Lily Collins In Christian Siriano & Miu Miu – ‘To the Bone’ Screening & Press Conference

Continuing promotion for her new Netflix original film, ‘To The Bone,’ Lily Collins attended the LA screening on Thursday (June 29) followed by the press conference in Beverly Hills, California on Friday (June 30).

Screening: While this Christian Siriano colour-block dress was sleek and chic, it almost had me wishing that she had opted for the original design. The coral-pink hue would have been a delightful ode to the current summer season.

Press Conference: I’m not sure if the lighting played a role here, but whereas this retro-inspired Miu Miu floral frock should have been delightfully radiant and lemony, it was instead rather dull and dismal. Lily’s heavier makeup—especially the dark lip—did nothing to lift the mood of the rather aging look.

Regina Hall In Vivian Chan & Johanna Ortiz – ‘Naked’ New Orleans Premiere & ‘Girls Trip’ New Orleans Screening

Regina Hall was at the ‘Naked’ New Orleans premiere at the 2017 ESSENCE Festival on Friday (June 30) in New Orleans, Louisiana before attending the ‘Girls Trip’ New Orleans screening later that day.

‘Naked’ New Orleans Premiere: There would be no so-called ‘naked’ dresses for Regina who instead showed the inherent beauty of simple sophistication in a Vivian Chan Fall 2017 halter dress. I not only loved this glorious fuchsia colour on her, but the swath of perfect femininity in the composed ruffle down the front.

‘Girls Trip’ New Orleans Screening: Shimmering in rose gold, this Johanna Ortiz Spring 2017 frock was also full of feminine notions, from the off-the-shoulder styling, to the keyhole accent, to the fit-and-flare silhouette. The minimal styling, with just a metallic sandal in play, yet again worked to the look’s advantage.
