The Fashion Awards 2017 Red Carpet Roundup

The long list of stars continued in full force at The Fashion Awards 2017 on Monday (December 4) in London.

Kaia Geber: I loved seeing the young model have some fun with the flirty nature of ruffles in this Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 two-piece, cold-shoulder look. It was style-forward, chic, and sweet at the same time. Messika jewels completed her look.

Adwoa Aboah: There was no sequin left unturned in this Halpern Spring 2018 sequin number, but it was the platform footwear that compromised its fresh potential.

Jourdan Dunn: The sultry seduction of the Versace label was fully celebrated in this orange gown. But I most loved the model’s gorgeous beauty look.

Louis Vuitton Celebrates GingerNutz in Vogue’s December Issue

Louis Vuitton celebrated GingerNutz in Vogue’s December Issue on Tuesday (November 21) in London, with cover star Adwoa Aboah and a few of the Brit pack.

Jenna Coleman: While the actress’ style is perhaps pigeon-holed in the Erdem and Emilia Wickstead dainty dresses category, Jenna showed that she could hang with a fashion daredevils like Ruth Negga at this event. While there isn’t anything fashion forward about her look, it’s refreshing to see her try something new in Louis Vuitton Resort 2018. I’m lusting after her boots btw.

Ruth Negga: Attending her fourth LV event in a row, the British actress appears to be very much part of the LV family. You may be unsure about the Emma Stone / LV union, but Ruth’s innate cool-girl style feels like the perfect fit. I want to beg, borrow and steal (especially that embroidered jacket) this Louis Vuitton Spring 2018 outfit.

Adwoa Aboah In Simone Rocha – British Vogue’s December Issue Dinner Party

Alexa Chung, Naomie Harris and Alicia Vikander were all in attendance to celebrate Edward Enninful’s first cover for British Vogue on Tuesday (November 7) in London, which features Adwoa Aboah on the cover.

Keeping up her signature rebellious yet romantic aesthetic, the Ghanaian model wore a Simone Rocha Spring 2018 dress.

Simone Rocha’s ethos has always been about empowering women with a strong sense of identity, which can definitely be said about Adwoa, as she doesn’t get lost in the layers, the embroidered flowers and bows making up this dramatic piece.

Styling the look with the floral appliqué flatforms, methinks this will be a marmite look.

For me it’s impossible not to love. So, do you love it or hate it?

Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards 2017 Red Carpet Roundup

There were lots of striking outfits at the Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards 2017 in London, England on Thursday (November 2).

Arizona Muse: Proving black isn’t boring, the model presented a glamorous finish in Ralph & Russo Fall 2017 Couture. The plunging neckline was decorated with a myriad of rhinestones mimicking a statement necklace. A high slit provided some relief to the ornate front and long sleeves.

Georgia May Jagger: The model wore The Vampire’s Wife Cate dress. The inky mini was emboldened with a metallic blue floral detail and delicate frills. She brought out the blue tones with her clutch and makeup, while the vertiginous black sandals enhanced her pins and the dress’s short hemline.

Natasha Poly: Clad in Vivienne Westwood Couture, the Russian model looked ravishing in the jewel tone floral sequin corseted mini dress, with nude underskirt. Some might wish the under layer wasn’t visible, but the surprise detail enhanced the lighter tones in the outer layer while balancing the thicker shoulder band.

Miu Miu Spring 2018 After Party

After the Miu Miu Spring 2018 show, more Miu Miu-clad starlets showed up for the after party on Tuesday (October 3) in Paris.

Emily Ratajkowski: While she wore a more reserved, covered-up look to the show, Emily returned to her standard skin-baring M.O. with this embellished mini.

Adwoa Aboah: After Adwoa’s colourful ensemble earlier in the week, I found myself missing that rush of vibrancy in this all-white ensemble. It also seemed a bit too mature and mumsy for the young model.

Naomie Harris: I loved Naomie’s look at the show, and she continued to have some fun with this playfully embroidered black dress and booties. The artsy, abstract motifs were all the whimsy that the frock needed.

Irving Penn Exhibition Private Viewing Hosted by Vogue

A private viewing, hosted by Vogue, for the Irving Penn exhibition at the Grand Palais was held on Sunday (October 1) during Paris Fashion Week.

Adwoa Aboah: Taking a break from walking the runways at Paris Fashion Week, Adwoa posed in a Richard Quinn Spring 2018 look that offered an invigorating, happy mix of ditzy florals. You would think with so many bold, competing prints that this would translate as disjointed. But, on the contrary, I loved this look on Adwoa, and I also credit its success to her minimal approach to the styling, with a black sandal and red pout all she needed. Flower power, indeed.

Kylie Minogue: I think it’s safe to say that Kylie put this Alice McCall ‘More Than A Woman’ fringe gown to work for her—as it was made to be spun around. As fun as it was, I was a bit tassel fatigued and the muted, mauve-pink colour wasn’t my favourite for the vibrancy of the entertainer, but she attempted to bring a splash of vividness via her lipstick.

Dita von Teese: With a look that riffed on the field-of-poppies print from the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2017 Couture collection, Dita maximized proportions with this look. I have mixed feelings on the balloon sleeves, as they might be lumped into a costume-y circus category. But, the colours were striking in contrast to the black pencil skirt.
