Coco Rocha In Christian Siriano – 11th Annual DKMS Big Love Gala

Coco Rocha was on the red carpet at the 11th Annual DKMS Big Love Gala in New York City on Thursday (April 27).

While the supermodel put her pose to work for her, it couldn’t help save this Christian Siriano gown.

While the glittery, silver embellishment looked a bit gaudy, it was really the proportions of the dress that were most problematic. The bodice-to-skirt ratio made even Coco’s statuesque frame appear shortened.

I did love the edgy sultriness of her beauty look, even if it was at odds with the dress.

Harper’s Bazaar 150th Anniversary Celebration

Harper’s Bazaar hosted its 150th Anniversary Party, presented with Tiffany & Co., on Wednesday (April 19) in New York City, where a number of the magazine’s favourite faces came out to celebrate.

Iman: I love how the supermodel’s Brandon Maxwell Spring 2017 jumpsuit was enhanced by a satin-accented, floor-sweeping train for extra drama on this special night. Plus, the olive colourway was stunning on her.

Candy Crush x Moschino Coachella Party

Coachella is never lacking in revelry and festivities, but the Candy Crush x Moschino Desert Party on Saturday (April 15) was one for the books. Hosted by Moschino designer Jeremy Scott, the fancifully colouful fete served to introduce his latest capsule collection with the addictive mobile game.

Katy Perry: Naturally, Jeremy Scott’s good friend Katy Perry would be in attendance—and dressed for the occasion. Rocking an even shorter platinum pixie, she wore a cropped version of a colourful Moschino Fall 2017 neon fur coat that must have been quite hot. No matter, she kept her cool with a metallic Moschino sports bra underneath and lime-green sunnies.

Serayah McNeill: Like Katy, Serayah also found inspiration in a jacket piece, hers a long, crochet number from the Moschino Fall 2017 collection. While her black and white bra top, orange shorts, and handbag were well-coordinated, the same cannot exactly be said for those furry flatforms that stuck out for all the wrong reasons.

Charli XCX: Looking every bit like she could run a post-party marathon in this Moschino look, the entertainer kept it brief in hot pants and a crop top, strewn with word art and messaging. Neon Nike sneakers drove home the athletic appeal.

Balmain x H&M Collection Launch Party

Balmain x H&M Collection Launch Party 1

The Balmain x H&M collection made its global runway debut in front of a celebrity-packed audience in New York City on Tuesday (October 20).

Kendall Jenner, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Diane Kruger, Gigi Hadid, Ellie Goulding, Jourdan Dunn, Alexa Chung, Coco Rocha and Kylie Jenner were among the guests to get an exclusive look at collection designed by Olivier Rousteing.

As you would expect, many of Olivier’s classic pieces have been created for this high-street collection. While the celebs stuck to a black and green colour palette, many of the runway looks incorporated colour and embellishments.

As this collection doesn’t appeal, I will not be standing in line when it goes on sale November 5, but I do like Kendall, Rosie’s, Jourdan’s and Alexa’s sexy, yet powerful looks.

See the runway show here.

Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party

Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party

A crush of chic beauties and models of the moment made for quite the spectacular showing at the Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party on Friday (October 3) in Paris, France.

Giovanna Battaglia: Everything was coming up roses, in rather dramatic fashion, for Giovanna who left no petal unturned in this Alexander McQueen Fall 2015 red rose organza and lace ruffle dress worn with a lace bra and black lace embroidered boots. I kind of wish that lace collar piece was missing in action.

Kendall Jenner
: The model went the sophisticatedly chic route in an Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2015 Couture black velvet bustier gown constructed with a touch of youthful charm in the large collection of ruffle roses that dotted the hem of the dress. The finish of a ruby lip brought even more va-voom spirit.

Zoe Kravitz: Adding more rose-laced, flower-power to the proceedings, she rocked the Balenciaga Spring 2016 dress that she modeled during the label’s runway show paired with Balenciaga matching mules and complementary jewels. This is a more delicate side to Zoe’s style, but the full-on sheer story and high-waisted briefs has me fatigued on this occasion.
