V&A Fashioned from Nature VIP Preview

The V&A Fashioned from Nature VIP Preview on Wednesday (April 18) in London, England saw a few attendees pay tribute to the naturalistic theme.

Natalie Imbruglia: Turning heads with a captivating pattern and a voluminous silhouette, the Australian singer wore Bora Aksu Spring 2018. The muted blue prevents the heart pattern from become twee. Presumably, she added the jacket for a similar reason, but I would have liked to see the ensemble without it. The Bottega Veneta clutch was more successful.

Arizona Muse: The model’s white Stella McCartney outfit had a subtle flapper sentiment with the short silhouette, long necklace and her sculpted waves. The white and blue combination has such a refreshing springtime air but I wish the necklace was shortened so it wouldn’t compete with the delicate peplum.

Ellise Chappell: The ‘Poldark’ actress embraced the natural theme with a whimsical dress from Alice Archer. The frills, sheer polka dot fabric and watercolour floral print are brimming with romance. The metallic shoes added more ethereal beauty.

16th Sidaction

There was a bounty of beauties at the 16th Sidaction event, which is part of the Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture Spring Summer 2018 season, on Thursday (January 25) in Paris, France.

Melanie Thierry: I did a double take when I saw the actress as her blonde hair has been dyed a striking ginger shade. It was offset with the jeweled embellishment on her Miu Miu outfit. The beige coat could be deemed too casual by some, but it had an insouciant allure.

Isabelle Huppert: The ‘Elle’ actress proved the beauty of simplicity in an Azzaro Fall 2017 Couture gown. The diagonal detailing had a captivating wrap-around event that showcased her incredible figure.

Elodie Bouchez: Skinny pants plus a mannish blazer is a favourite silhouette of many. She took her Saint Laurent separates further adding a shimmering shirt and supersized earrings. It could have had 80s power suit connotations, but the dark colour palette and tailoring made it feel au courant.

Front Row @ Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Couture

The dreamy Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Couture show was held on Monday (January 22) during Paris Fashion Week, with a trio of front-row femmes in the house to witness all the confections.

Kylie Minogue: The beautiful blush tone of this silky, asymmetrical gown conveyed a softly romantic quality on Kylie. A darker sandal to match her nail lacquer would have escalated the dramatic effect even more.

Natalia Vodianova: Of course, I was immediately drawn to this electric-blue number, but what heightened my affection were the little details like the buttons down the side, the dynamic patterning, and the swishy, car wash paneling. Modern sophistication at its finest.

Arizona Muse: A pair of red pumps enlivened this girly, embellished black frock. I think a similar bold crimson shade would have been equally fitting for her lip to tie the look together.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture

A couple of days after the Dior Homme show, more Dior-clad darlings descended on the Rodin Museum for the fashion house’s runway show, the first big one of Paris haute couture week on Monday (January 22).

Emily Blunt: Sleekly elegant styling was the only way to go for this ornately printed Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2018 frock, and Emily complied.

Annabelle Wallis: Statement shirts continue to be a relevant trend, and Annabelle’s fit the bill. I like how she styled it with the graphic jacket (which coincidentally reflected the show’s checquerboard set), high-waist, cropped trousers, and hat for a slice of Parisian rebel-chic.

Willow Smith: Perhaps taking a cue from the surrealist mood of the show in her white eye makeup, Willow offered a more girly perspective than we would expect from her urban-cool style in this sheer tulle gown juxtaposed with a tuxedo vest.

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.
