2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show After Show Party

The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show After Party took place on Monday (November 20) in Shanghai, China, with a wide ranging mix of styles.

I decided to split them into categories this year staring with: My Favourites.

Cindy Bruna: This Brandon Maxwell Spring 2017 suit originally stormed the runway with a blouse, but Cindy made the look her own by opting to go without.  The excessive boobage might turn off some, but I’m more intrigued by the impeccable tailoring.

Maria Borges: I’m a huge fan of Maria’s style, but I was blown away when she opted to wear this Tiffany Amber gown which proudly showcased her African roots. The dress, the belt and head wrap are gorgeous, but it’s the ‘going against the grain’ statement which I find most endearing.

Jourdana Phillips: You can’t get much chicer than a cream tuxedo dress styled with gold Giuseppe Zanotti rose-gold sandals.

‘Backstage Secrets’ By Russell James Book Launch

A flurry of supermodels were out in force to support noted Aussie photographer Russell James and his new book, ‘Backstage Secrets’ on Saturday (November 18) in Shanghai, China.

Karlie Kloss: Sometimes Karlie plays it safe, so I love how playful this sporty David Koma Resort 2018 mesh frock was. I do think she could have extended the fun to her shoes with a bright-pink pair instead of these Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals.

Martha Hunt: With a play on lavender metallic, this Baja East Spring 2018 two-piece set was sassy if nothing else. Also wearing a pair of Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, she let the outfit do all the talking with the shoes all but disappearing.

Sara Sampaio: I like how Sara balanced out the wide-leg appeal of these Paule Ka trousers with a sultry spliced Y/Project cutout bodysuit.

Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

The list of lovelies at Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’ on Friday (September 8) in New York City was seemingly unending, as a number of stars joined Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, and Kim Kardashian.

Gigi Hadid: Her hyper-embellished Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2017 ensemble, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, was so intricate and powerful of a statement that it really didn’t require the rhinestone clogs.

Kaia Gerber: Cindy Crawford’s model daughter was all grown up in a slinky Kristian Aadnevik Fall 2017 mini that had her looking like her mom more and more.

Kendall Jenner: There was little left to the imagination in this Dolce & Gabbana ruched, sheer number. Yet, ironically in spite of the see-through, I couldn’t help but still get a certain sophisticated, glam vibe with the look, which I will chalk up to its silhouette along with Kendall’s Old-Hollywood waves, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and Jimmy Choo sandals.

Models @ 2017 Tony Awards

A handful of models hit the red carpet at the 2017 Tony Awards on Sunday (June 11) in New York City.

Candice Swanepoel: While we just recently saw this Prabal Gurung Fall 2017 gown on Sofia Boutella, Candice gave it all new meaning by removing the long-sleeve shirting to fully reveal the glossy bodice piece. While it did still play the sheer game, it did so with sophisticated taste and sultry glamour. This was a far more successful outing for the design.

Alek Wek: Alek kept her boot game going strong with these Oscar de la Renta black crystal embroidered suede ‘Frederikke’ thigh high boots that stole the show. The Oscar de la Renta Fall 2017 asymmetrical LBD was simply the chic backdrop, with an Oscar de la Renta ‘TRO bag finishing the ensemble.

Models @ The 2017 Met Gala

The models had their moment at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City. Here, a look at how they made the night’s blue carpet their catwalk.

Bella Hadid: We’ve heard of the naked dress, but Bella had the naked jumpsuit of the evening in this sheer mesh Alexander Wang number that left precious little to the imagination.

Gigi Hadid: Her sister may have opted for the naked look, but Gigi just went plain nude in this sweeping Tommy Hilfiger gown—her version of a princess dress—that combined architectural tailoring with romantic femininity. To add an edge, Wolford fishnets did the trick for her leg jut that was likewise accessorised by Christian Louboutin heels.

Models @ The 2015 Met Gala

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

The models also had their moment at the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), some strutting to the beat of the theme better than others.

Karen Elson: One of the most extravagantly attired models, Karen truly embraced the ‘costume’ in the Costume Institute Benefit Gala in her Dolce & Gabbana ballgown spectacle featuring an ornately embellished and gilded bodice with matching cuffs, and an explosion of red tulle. Her elaborate gold headpiece also gave Sarah Jessica Parker’s own topper a bit of crown competition. This was the Chinese princess moment of the night.
