amfAR Los Angeles 2017

A crush of stars came out for amfAR Los Angeles 2017 on Friday (October 13) in Beverly Hills, California.

Heidi Klum: At this point, I’m always prepared to be disappointed with a Heidi look, but she actually stepped up to the plate in this Ralph & Russo Fall 2017 Couture gown that was a far more modern and sophisticated form of glittery glam for her.  The look was of course styled with Lorraine Schwartz  jewels.

Dita Von Teese: Designer Ulyana Sergeenko and Dita are a perfect match, as can be seen in this Demi-Couture gown that prizes the feminine form with its provocative bustier silhouette and seductive thigh slit.

Kate Hudson: Playing to her buzz cut, Kate kept it cool and mod in this David Koma Resort 2018 gown that scintillated with mirror-like embellishment.  A Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch completed her look.

Irving Penn Exhibition Private Viewing Hosted by Vogue

A private viewing, hosted by Vogue, for the Irving Penn exhibition at the Grand Palais was held on Sunday (October 1) during Paris Fashion Week.

Adwoa Aboah: Taking a break from walking the runways at Paris Fashion Week, Adwoa posed in a Richard Quinn Spring 2018 look that offered an invigorating, happy mix of ditzy florals. You would think with so many bold, competing prints that this would translate as disjointed. But, on the contrary, I loved this look on Adwoa, and I also credit its success to her minimal approach to the styling, with a black sandal and red pout all she needed. Flower power, indeed.

Kylie Minogue: I think it’s safe to say that Kylie put this Alice McCall ‘More Than A Woman’ fringe gown to work for her—as it was made to be spun around. As fun as it was, I was a bit tassel fatigued and the muted, mauve-pink colour wasn’t my favourite for the vibrancy of the entertainer, but she attempted to bring a splash of vividness via her lipstick.

Dita von Teese: With a look that riffed on the field-of-poppies print from the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2017 Couture collection, Dita maximized proportions with this look. I have mixed feelings on the balloon sleeves, as they might be lumped into a costume-y circus category. But, the colours were striking in contrast to the black pencil skirt.

Who Wore Alexis Mabille Couture Better…Dita von Teese or Lea Seydoux?

Who Wore Alexis Mabille Couture Better Dita von Teese or Lea Seydoux

Dita von Tesse wore this elegant black Alexis Mabille Couture tuxedo gown while attending the ‘Global Gift Gala’ back in May 2013.

A litte over two years later, Lea Seydoux wore the same dress in white which saw her take a rare Miu Miu/Prada pause during her promo tour for ‘Spectre’.

As much as I love Dita, everything about the look is expected, which is quite the opposite when it comes to Lea, so she wins for me.

25th Annual EMA Awards Red Carpet Roundup

25th Annual EMA Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of rest of the stars who joined Gwyneth Paltrow and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at the EMA Awards hosted by the Environmental Media Association at the Warner Bros. Studios on Saturday (October 24) in Burbank, California.

Kristin Davis: The first thing that struck me upon seeing Kristin in this Stella McCartney Fall 2015 jumpsuit, was that this might be the first time I’ve ever seen her in trousers on the red carpet. Known for her love for fit and flare silhouettes – usually of the Oscar de la Renta variety – this was such a refreshing and totally chic look for the actress.

Stana Katic: Also going the black jumpsuit route, the ‘Castle’ actress sizzled in a fully sequin Naeem Khan one-piece with a daring plunge. As always, she looks outstanding with minimal effort.

Emmanuelle Chriqui: Making it a hat-trick of black jumpsuit, the actress served a totally different variation of the one-piece donning a strapless Stella McCartney Cathy jumpsuit featuring an asymmetrical draped detail. Shame those tan lines are so visible.

‘Jeremy Scott: The People’s Designer’ LA Premiere

'Jeremy Scott The People's Designer' LA Premiere

‘Jeremy Scott: The People’s Designer’ premiered at TCL Chinese 6 Theatres on Wednesday (September 8) in Hollywood, California.

While the usual suspects – Katy Perry and Rita Ora – were in attendance, there were others – Dita von Teese and Lily Collins – who seemed very out of place.

Katy Perry: The singer was very much the belle of the ball wearing a Moschino black gown styled with a bespoke Edie Parker clutch. Between the gown and the hair, this screams bad ’80s throwback.

Dita von Teese: Lending some elegance to the event, the burlesque star was looking as graceful as ever wearing a polka dot alluring gown.

amfAR Paris Red Carpet Roundup

amfar paris

There were many more celebs who joined Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on the red carpet for the amfAR dinner, hosted at the Pavilion LeDoyen during Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture on Sunday (July 5) in Paris, France.

Karlie Kloss: The model went from runway to red carpet without skipping a beat, wearing the same finale look from the Atelier Versace Fall 2015 collection which she presented. A smoothless transition if I ever saw one.

Olivia Palermo: When it came to Olivia’s marigold Dior look, the word smooth was nowhere in the equation. The words crumpled, creased, needed-a-steam spring to mind. Creases aside, this is such a harsh colour for Olivia and not a flattering style.
