Front Row @ Versace Spring 2018

Many expected the front row of Versace’s Spring 2018 show to be celeb heavy, but tonight was all about celebrating an icon, so only a trios of stars were front and center.

I was very excited to be seated behind them.

Amber Valleta: I’m sure you’re thinking this tuxedo dress was a bit of a snooze, but this picture doesn’t tell the true story as the party was at the back. The open back was accented with chains for a true rock n’ roll Versace touch.

Charlene, Princess of Monaco: I have never been in the presence of royalty, so this was quite an honour. I was immediately captivated by how statuesque Charlene was. And even more so by her graceful manor and calming presence when the room felt so hectic. There was no diluting the spirit of Versace in this look, her highness perfected her ode to 80s Versace in a cut-out chainmail dress and biker jacket accented with silver medusa’s.

Lewis Hamilton: Now, it was 24 degree today – warmer in the venue – and Lewis was wearing a wool coat, cashmere sweater and leather trousers – not too dissimilar from those he wears on the racetrack. As a fellow weather cautious Brit who also travelled to Milan in leather jacket, I won’t judge Lewis too harshly, but you won’t be surprised to learn that after this picture he was quick to ditch the coat. His assistant/stylist shared that she pulled the look as she wanted something unique that no one else would’ve been wearing, before we shared a joke that sometimes you just have to suffer for a short period for fashion. Good to know that men share this sentiment too.

Chanel Dinner Celebrating Lucia Pica & The Travel Diary Makeup Collection

Chanel-clad beauties came out for the Chanel dinner celebrating the brand’s global creative makeup and color designer Lucia Pica and the new Travel Diary Makeup Collection in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday (July 12).

Rowan Blanchard: There would be no question that the young starlet set out to have some fun with her youthful Chanel Fall 2017 outfit featuring a ‘Gabrielle Chanel’ tee and high-waist navy pinstripe trousers paired with bold-red Chanel toe-cap booties. Chanel’s ‘Gabrielle’ bag, Chanel Fine Jewelry ‘Coco Crush’ earrings, and the Chanel ‘Boy.Friend’ watch rounded her creatively inspired look. But none was more creative than the liberties taken with her Crayola-inspired, multi-colour eye shadow hues.

Yara Shahidi: While Yara often favours long-sleeve long dresses, she brought that same aesthetic to this Chanel Fall 2017 ruffle blouse and faded, boyfriend denim that she imbued with her signature cool flair. I love the cheekiness of the double Cs washed into the ’90s-inspired jeans as well as the polish of Yara’s styling including the Chanel booties, a Chanel bag, and Chanel Fine Jewelry ‘Coco Crush’ ear cuff and rings.

Sarah Staudinger: Also in Chanel, naturally, Sarah wore pastel separates mixed with a bubblegum-pink bag and granny-chic shoes—not to mention oversized hoop earrings. I’m not exactly sure what she was going for, but I couldn’t find much rhyme or reason to her quirky entrance.

Amber Valletta In Mulberry – ‘Wonderstruck’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Amber Valletta joined Michelle Williams and Julianne Moore for the ‘Wonderstruck’ premiere during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival today (May 18).

Mulberry isn’t a brand you really associate with red carpet looks, especially at Cannes, so I’m not surprised that I couldn’t find it in my heart to fall in love with Amber’s Fall 2017 – especially when I prefer the runway look.

Much like Robin Wright’s Saint Laurent look yesterday, this would make for a great party frock, but isn’t Cannes premiere worthy.

Where have all the go-big or go-home, BDOTY-worthy looks gone this year?

Is everyone saving them for the amfAR Gala?

WCRF’s ‘An Unforgettable Evening’ Presented By Saks Fifth Avenue

A group of lovelies were in attendance at WCRF’s ‘An Unforgettable Evening,’ presented by Saks Fifth Avenue, on Thursday (February 16).

Jessica Hart: The model posed in an artsy Mugler Resort 2017 cutout dress that I loved for the organic fluidity of the undulating neckline and curved hem not to mention its hot medley of hues. She let the frock be the star of the show with minimal styling and a towering top knot.

Amber Valletta: Speaking of stars, Amber brought them out in this embellished Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2015 dress. Perhaps trying to dial down the studded, high-octane mini, she went for a bare-faced look and barely styled hair, yet something still didn’t feel quite as fresh about the look.

Amber Valletta In Atelier Versace – amfAR New York Gala

Getting the party started on a dynamic note, Amber Valletta strutted out a statement look for the 19th Annual amfAR New York Gala on Wednesday (February 8) in New York City.

The model was breathtaking in an asymmetric Atelier Versace Fall 2016 mini dress with a cascading satin train, intricately pleated satin bust line, and modern belt detail.

Draping was a big part of this Atelier Versace collection, and the drama it imbued was evidenced in this dress and heightened by its unexpected colour palette that celebrated the edgier side of lavender.

She finished the ensemble with a pair of black Versace silk satin sandals, Eva Fehren jewels and a metallic black clutch.
