2015 Met Gala Roundup

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

A flurry of even more bold names descended on red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), where their colourful variety of looks only contributed to this year’s fashion extravaganza.

Anna Wintour
: As the gala co-host, the ‘Vogue’ editor-in-chief dressed thematically (for her, anyway) in a Chanel Spring 2015 Couture gown featuring dimensional, all-over poppy embroidery, which had been lengthened from the runway’s original shorter version. She should have maintained her signature cap sleeve, as the flower petal statement shoulders translated as a bit cumbersome, despite their inherent artistry.

Bee Shaffer: Like her mother, Bee also found inspiration in flowers, opting for a mahogany blossom gown by Alexander McQueen. I much preferred this look to Anna’s, especially with the enchantment of the beautifully embroidered Chinese cranes that alighted down the back of the dress.

Alison Brie In Marchesa – ‘Mad Men’ Season 7 LA Premiere

Alison Brie In Marchesa - ‘Mad Men’ Season 7 LA Premiere

>Alison Brie was also in attendance at the ‘Mad Men’ Season 7 premiere, hosted at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood, California on Wednesday (April 2), where she was in good company with her other co-stars January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, Kiernan Shipka, Christina Hendricks, Jessica Pare and Teyonah Parris.

Like Kiernan, Alison was inspired by floral for this premiere look, donning a strapless nude Marchesa dress with an intricate cluster of embroidered buds and blooms in fall-like hues.

Complementing the frock, she wore metallic pewter Jimmy Choo ‘Valdez’ sandals and a rich berry lip whilst opting to keep her jewels minimal and her hair styled in simple waves.

Perhaps it’s the onslaught of spring, but this outing left me with a small craving for more sprightly, vivid hues.

Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2014 Front Row

Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2014 Front Row

Just like the understated luxury seen on the runway, the front row at Salvatore Ferragamo’s Fall 2014 show was suitably elegant and star-studded and helped bring Milan Fashion Week to a close in true Italian style.

Hilary Swank: Hollywood mega-star Hilary Swank brought the star power to the Italian powerhouse’s front row. Wearing a beautiful Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2014 cream satin pleated dress with belt buckle, she oozed glamour and grace. Cut perfectly, the dress was kept understated with a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo python pumps which although pretty uninspiring, helped to keep this look suited for the day.

Alison Brie: Also wearing a top-to-toe look by the iconic Italian label, ‘Mad Men’ actress Alison Brie added a pop of spring to the front row. Opting for a Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2014 white strapless pleated dress, Alison looked refreshingly modern and injected a welcome dose of colour with Salvatore Ferragamo pink suede heels and a Ferragamo pink, black and orange leather clutch. I think this is a great look for Alison and a great front row look for Milan.

Alison Brie In J. Mendel – ‘The Lego Movie’ LA Premiere

Alison Brie In J Mendel - 'The Lego Movie' LA Premiere

Alison Brie attended the premiere of ‘The LEGO Movie’ held at Regency Village Theatre on Saturday (February 1) in Westwood, California.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore a summery J. Mendel frock which was perfect for the sunny afternoon.

Her coral floral jacquard sleeveless dress with a cross-strap back detail and silk organza inserts was styled with simple nude pumps and a glossy pink lips.

I love this look it’s simple, event appropriate, weather appropriate and typically fitting to her lady-like style.
