Rihanna In Dolce & Gabbana – Out In New York City

Riding high on the launch of her highly anticipated Fenty Beauty line, Rihanna ventured out in New York City on Wednesday (September 13) to go apartment hunting in the financial district.

The multi-hyphenate previously donned two oversized denim ensembles as she made the rounds following her Fenty Puma by Rihanna fashion show at NYFW. However, this Dolce & Gabbana jacket didn’t feel like a repeat performance for me.

In keeping with her penchant for volume, the billowing jacket doubled as a dress. She played up the exaggerated proportions further with supersized hoop earrings.

Pastel blue fuzzy sandals provided some daintiness to the denim ensemble while mimicking the different shades of blue in the jacket.

Do you wish she incorporated the floral print dress?

Doutzen Kroes’ NYFW Street Style

As New York Fashion Week marches on, supermodel Doutzen Kroes has been seen out and about in NYC, showcasing her own penchant for chic, street style.

I was immediately drawn to the electric-blue hue of the shirting in her first look, worn at the Daily Front Row’s Fashion Media Awards. While the oversized pocket detail could come across as comical on some occasions, that was quickly quashed by her ultra-sophisticated high-waist trousers. The only thing I would have changed is the white shoes for a tonal navy sandal.

The casual-cool factor that belongs to any ensemble by The Row was plainly felt in this second look. It may have been a study in monochromatic neutrals, but I would say that her statement eyeglasses and mannish loafers kept the ensemble from being one-note.

I never thought I would say it, but those lug-sole boots actually work on Doutzen here. Somehow, she manages to make every clunky inch of them work with her T-shirt and pencil skirt, punched up by that orange shoulder bag.

Did you like her trio of street-style outings?

Olivia Culpo in head-to-toe Tod’s during NYFW

Olivia Culpo has been doing the rounds during New York Fashion Week, changing several times a day.

Yesterday (September 11), she hit the streets of Manhattan wearing a full Tod’s Fall 2017 runway leather look, which for first time had me feeling a touch of OC fatigue.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the look and her total commitment to bringing us everything from high end to affordable fashion, but at the same time this look feels a tad contrived.

As a stylist friend of my would call this dressing, not styling.

I get no sense of her style here.

I love street style fashion during Fashion Week because you get to see looks pulled together in an inspiring way, this just tells me she had free reign in the Tod’s showroom.

Ciara In Galia Lahav Couture – Out In New York City

Ciara made the sidewalks of New York City her personal runway while out and about over the weekend.

Some may oppose the exaggerated proportions of this Galia Lahav Fall 2017 Couture coat dress, but I found it altogether intriguing, as the look balanced a fanciful, feminine spirit with plenty of leather-infused edge.

Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Jeannine’ booties, with their statement red ribbons, added another layer of chic boldness, with a Giuseppe Zanotti matching clutch rounding out the look.

Rihanna In Y/Project – Out In New York

The Fenty Puma By Rihanna fashion show during New York Fashion Week was on Sunday (September 10), so Rihanna has been out and about in NYC making the rounds in her own head-turning way.

Her off-duty affinity for oversized menswear has not waned with her latest street-style looks from Y/Project’s Spring 2018 Menswear collection.

Wearing the boxy blazer over ripped jeans was a trend-forward way to rock the disparate pieces, with Olgana Paris ‘Celeste’ mink fur mule sandals ending it on a playful, very Ri Ri note.

Her second look featured her own version of a Canadian tuxedo with this all-denim approach. There was a lot of fabric happening between the gigantic shirt, long belt, and comically slouched trousers.

All that to say, the first look was by and far my favourite for its more polished sensibility, despite the distressed denim.

What about you?

Gigi Hadid keeps the pajamas alive in MARCH11

It’s fashion week, and while celebs are doing the most to stand out, Gigi Hadid is sticking to her favoured style: pajama-inspired separates.

As someone who’s been a fan of this trend; when done right, I have to say again I’m in love with this MARCH11 bell bottoms and a coordinating jacket slinky look.

From the bumblegum hue, to the tone-on-tone graphics the model certainly made a statement.

I especially love how she amped up the jewel-tones by styling her look with emerald Olgana Paris ‘L’Amazone’ jeweled satin heel and a matching bag.

Love it or leave it?
