Monaco’s royalty celebrate Monaco National Day 2017

Monaco’s royalty stepped out to observe their country’s National Day celebrations at the Monaco royal palace on Sunday (November 19), alongside Princess Charlene and Prince Albert of Monaco.

From left to right, Andrea Casiraghi and his wife Tatiana Casiraghi, Louis Ducruet, Charlotte Casiraghi, Gareth Wittstock (Princess Charlene’s brother), Pierre Casiraghi and his wife Beatrice Casiraghi were all dressed to the nines for the festivities.

Tatiana Casiraghi: Making her Emilia Wickstead festive red coat her focus, I love how the vieled beret adds a touch of Parisian flare.

Charlotte Casiraghi: Perhaps paying homage to her late grandmother, Grace Kelly, the princess was dressed in a retro-style Vanessa Seward frock coat and a plum-coloured cloche hat.

Beatrice Casiraghi (née Borromeo): Also channelling a retro look, Beatrice wore a beige wool Dior Haute Couture jacket, inspired by the ‘Sahara’ collection from autumn-winter 1945, paired with a black wool Dior Couture skirt. Like the others it was really her accessories which gave so much life to the look. A Dior Haute Couture wool beige veiled beret, an exotic leather brown belt and brown exotic leather shoes completed her look.

Gucci @ 2017 LACMA Art + Film Gala

As the 2017 LACMA Art + Film Gala in LA on Saturday (November 4) was presented by Gucci, there were quite a number of Gucci looks in attendance from the label’s devoted darlings.

Dakota Johnson: You might recognize this Gucci Spring 2018 embellished, plisse gown from the Red Carpet Wish List for Mandy Moore. Yet, its languid, boudoir glamour was actually in keeping with Dakota’s style, too. I know some may qualify the swoop of her hairstyle as a bit mature, and I wouldn’t disagree. However, I did like the drama brought forth from her long earrings and oxblood lip.

Zoe Saldana: I think Zoe may be the only one who could wear this Gucci gown and not make me want to immediately rip off the giant pink rose corsages from the flamenco, caped shoulders.

Front Row @ Gucci Spring 2018

As we might expect, the front row at the Gucci Spring 2018 show on Wednesday (September 20) during Milan Fashion Week was awash in a head-turning mix of bold prints and bright patterns from the label.

Dakota Johnson:
Starting the front row off with a bang, Dakota easily had one of my favoured looks in this colourful, pleated dress. I love the retro-forward, geometric print and the alluringly artsy mix of hues. The dragon-embroidered bag wouldn’t have been my first choice, though, for this look as it seemed so disparate from the mod mood.

Salma Hayek: Salma’s dress stood out for its prominent lack of pattern. But, it still charmed with the modern-Victorian lace detail and girlie bow at the waist that was very much in keeping with the star’s style.

Li Yuchun/Chris Lee: Never one to do fashion by halves, the entertainer presented a full-on fashion experience here. The cape may have been ‘Blind for Love,’ but I for one, don’t know where to look first between the Gucci signature print T-shirt, intricately patterned skirt, knee socks, and booties—not to mention the ear muffs. This was a performance piece, if nothing else.

Kering Women In Motion Cannes Dinner

The Kering Women in Motion Dinner was held during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (May 21), where Gucci outfitted a range of glamorous girls in attendance.

Charlotte Casiraghi: While the nude lining of this Gucci gown gave me pause, I was more relieved that there was a lining. Plus, the bright, verdant array of flowers offered a chipper and whimsically romantic note to the dress.

Salma Hayek Pinault: I could barely believe my eyes upon seeing Salma rock a pink-hair alter-ego. And, I couldn’t help but love the playful, va-va-voom vibe she was giving in this top-to-toe Gucci look. Maybe pastel-pink blondies really do have more fun.

Li Yuchun: Rocking a clashing array of plaid and prints, only Li could pull off the eclecticism of this Gucci Pre-Fall 2017 ensemble. However, she still couldn’t make me warm up to the neon-green, bow-topped booties.

2017 Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There were more looks that took to the red carpet at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 21) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Nicole Scherzinger: With an overt display of cleavage and ruffles, this Maria Lucia Hohan skin-tone gown was a bit of a dated eyeful.

Lorde: This red Givenchy design was a striking way to wear sheer without flashing the panties. Giuseppe Zanotti shoes completed the look.

Lea Michele: Despite its see-through mentality, this David Koma perforated dress conveyed chic, modern elegance on Lea, especially when styled with a twisted top knot and Cesare Paciotti shoes.

Chopard, Vanity Fair and HBO Cannes Parties

A Vanity Fair and HBO dinner party was held on Saturday (May 20) as part of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, with a group of glamorous gals in attendance.

Julianne Moore: While the actress did stick to a darker colour palette, she brought a dose of whimsical fun in this Chanel Resort 2017 embellished gown with multi-hued, feathered pouf sleeves. Exchanging the pink sash for a black one along with a sleek bun and Chopard jewels ensured plenty of her signature modern elegance was brought to the table.
