Bottega Veneta The Hand of The Artisan Cocktail Evening

Lovely ladies got dressed up in Bottega Veneta to show their support at the Bottega Veneta The Hand of The Artisan Cocktail evening in London, England on Thursday (November 9).

Ajak Deng: The Sudanese model showcased the designer’s masterful tailoring in a double-breasted trench coat. The textured fabric on the collar and cuffs brought a new dimension to the piece while the black accessories lent a toughness. I’m also awestruck by how this colour complements her skin tone.

Poppy Delevingne: Looking ready to party, the model was clad in a lilac mini decorated with long fringe and sequins. The whimsical nature of the dress was toughened considerably with the chunky black sandals.

Arizona Muse: The American model oozed refined elegance in this structured black dress. Its appeal lied in the subtle details including the trim on the shoulders, the cinched waist and the ankle-strap shoes.

2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The stylish ladies were out in full force at the 2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards on Monday (November 6) in Brooklyn, New York.

Sara Sampaio: The Portuguese model charmed in a J Mendel Resort 2018 mini. The short shape and blush colour were enlivened with feathered appliqués. The dusty neutral tones and simple styling allowed the texture to be appreciated without the bird connotations.

Karlie Kloss:
 Striking a shimmering statement, the model donned a Christian Dior frock. The long sleeves and ankle-length hemline had a prim feel, but the geometric pattern and shimmering details added much allure.

Lauren Santo Domingo: Also in a feathered confection, the Moda Operandi cofounder was clad in Calvin Klein Fall 2017. Similar to Sara, the textured look had a sophisticated finish thanks to the blush-toned feathers but hers were accented with red and yellow. Given the lightness of the dress, I would have preferred a softer shoe without the black details. You may remember that Julianne Moore wore this same dress to the Met Gala.

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.

Birks UK Jewellery Launch

Renowned Canadian jewellery brand Birks celebrated its launch in the UK with a cocktail event at Canada House  in London on Monday (October 16).

Laura Haddock: I thought it was quite fitting that Laura wore one of her favourite designers – Emilia Wickstead – to give her baby bump its red carpet debut. The last time she wore pink was during her ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ promo tour, but on this occasion she could be dropping a subtle hint that she’s expecting a girl. Laura wore the Muse mesh hoop earrings and Muse ribbon cuff bracelet from the Birks Muse Collection and the Rose du Matin wrap flex wrap ring in yellow gold from the Birks Rose du Matin Collection with navy Louboutins.

Arizona Muse: We don’t see enough Paul Smith on the red carpet, so I’m delighted to see Arizona don this suit in fashion’s most daring shade – raspberry. The sharp tailoring and plush fabrication ensure that this look will never date. Arizona wore the Bee Chic Honeycomb earrings with diamonds, Bee Chic Honeycomb pendant with diamond & Bee Chic Honeycomb ring with diamonds from the Birks Bee Chic Collection.

Front Row @ Valentino Spring 2018

The Valentino Spring 2018 front row had no shortage of chic beauties eager to take in designer Pierpaolo Piccioli’s take on elegant whimsy during Paris Fashion Week on Sunday (October 1).

Natalia Vodianova: Her previous less-is-more M.O. at the Givenchy show was replaced by a more-is-more look in this Valentino Resort 2018 keyhole frock, resplendent with folk patterning. Glittery Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Luce’ ankle boots and a statement earring ensured this was no ordinary maxi dress.

Marion Cotillard: Offering up her blonde ’do in a punk faux-hawk of sorts, the actress donned a Valentino Resort 2018 ensemble that merged menswear-inspired pinstripes, sporty track pants, and feminine, sheer lace. What united the motley collection of trends was the sophisticated colour palette, to which the kelly-green, embellished sandals simply did not make sense.

Izabel Goulart: I loved the romantic simplicity and feminine seduction of this Valentino Resort 2018 plisse dress, which flowed so beautifully and effortlessly around Izabel’s silhouette as she walked. Here, the green accents made perfect sense in the subtle piping at the neckline, the bow at the waist, and her matching clutch.

Green Carpet Fashion Awards Roundup

The inaugural Green Carpet Fashion Awards took place in Milan on Sunday (September 24), focusing on celebrating sustainable innovation and supply chains striving to minimize their footprints. Fittingly, many of the lovely ladies in attendance wore ensembles in keeping with the awards’ ethos.

Arizona Muse: Looking lovely in lace, the model wore a bespoke print gown with handmade lace detailing by Stella McCartney for the Green Carpet Challenge. The alluring piece was crafted from recycled archival print fabrics. The mix of the delicate black lace with ab cut out against the flowing florals on the bottom was thoroughly intriguing.

Naomi Campbell: The model struck a pose in an Atelier Versace Spring 2017 Couture gown. Swirls of silver embroidery were enhanced by a gradient train of white and yellow feathers. Naomi’s signature mane was brushed over one shoulder, revealing the halter neckline of the dress.
