‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

The fashion was strong at the ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival premiere on Tuesday evening (May 15). Attendees joined Emilia Clarke, Phoebe Waller-BridgeThandie Newton and Elizabeth Debicki.

Liu Wen: Never one to go down the sheer, bedazzled route, she shone in Bottega Veneta Fall 2018. She borrowed styling ideas from the runway, but added a Bottega Veneta clutch. The rich marigold colour had such a sumptuous air. I’m curious to see how the ankle boots will go down.

Toni Garrn: The German model showed some leg in Roberto Cavalli Couture. It certainly embodied the designer’s sensual aesthetic. It also showed a level of craftsmanship for the way the lining perfectly matched her skin tone with no distracting bra cups or panty lines.

Doutzen Kroes: The Dutch beauty traded in the gown for strong-shouldered Tom Ford separates paired with pink Tom Ford pumps. Some ensembles with exaggerated shoulders haven’t gone down well, but the proportions of this look shouldn’t offend.

Models @ 2018 Met Gala

Naturally, the models were out in force for the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City. Here’s what these ‘heavenly bodies’ had on.

Ashley Graham: Channeling a bronzed goddess moment, the model donned an Atelier Prabal Gurung sequin-encrusted gown that introduced a dramatic, Met-ready sensibility with the long, satin-edged cape. The leg jut was put to work, with Taski jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals completing the look.

Bella Hadid: I’m sure many will be raising their hands in praise that Bella opted for something a bit more covered than her naked bodysuit from last year’s Met Gala. This custom Chrome Hearts x Gareth Pugh design riffed on sinner and saint with the dark glamour of the latex corset and sculptural, villainous cape and fingerless gloves. This would have been all bad-girl were it not for the cross necklace and cross-embroidered veil that trailed behind her.

Tiffany & Co. Paper Flowers Event And Believe In Dreams Campaign Launch Red Carpet Roundup

The Tiffany & Co. Paper Flowers event and Believe In Dreams campaign launch on Thursday (May 3) in New York City was positively brimming with beautiful fashion moments. Attendees joined Sarah PaulsonGreta GerwigZendaya Coleman and Elle Fanning.

Hailey Baldwin: The model showed a softer side in Ellery Fall 2018. This was a nice change of pace from her typical on-trend style. There’s a magical quality from the prismatic fabric, silver shoes and pared-back styling.

Yara Shahidi: The ‘Grown-ish’ actress looked elegant in Prada. Given some of the high impact looks, I expected more drama from her. This still oozes sophistication, but I would have loved to see her in something head-turning like her Marie Claire’s 5th Annual ‘Fresh Faces’ look.

Naomi Campbell: Combining a whimsical white coat with a sultry dress, she most definitely made a statement in Sukeina Fall 2018. The juxtaposition of the angelic frills with the sensual dress is dynamic and her unique interpretation of whimsy. Some might find it jarring, but it did succeed in commanding attention.

Doutzen Kroes In Gareth Pugh – Naked Heart Foundation’s Fabulous Fund Fair

Doutzen Kroes attended the Naked Heart Foundation’s Fabulous Fund Fair during London Fashion Week on Tuesday (February 20).

Adhering to the red dress code, you’d expect the supermodel to attend in a silky silk dress, but she was a vision of fashion’s future wearing a Gareth Pugh Spring 2018 look.

The crinkled metallic red cowl-collared jumpsuit, purposely baggy in the leg, teamed with a matching trench coat takes Doutzen out of her comfort zone into a whole new realm of fashion fantasy.

But did she pull off the look for you?

While I had reserved many of the loosk from this collection for the likes of Lady Gaga, Halsey, Rihanna and even Beyonce, I do think this was a successful outing for Kroes, as the look feels neither comical or forced.

Front Row @ Tom Ford Fall 2018

The front row at the Tom Ford Fall 2018 runway show on Thursday (February 8) in New York City was a star-studded affair with celebrities bringing out their most glamorous looks.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: The English model demonstrated the designer’s mastery of tailoring and glamour in a Spring 2018 dress and jacket. The sharp-shouldered topper against the soft ruching on the maxi had a powerful, sensual mix, and she carried it off splendidly.

Zayn Malik: The ‘Dusk Till Dawn’ singer looked cool in jeans and a suede jacket. He might be projecting an insouciant air, but the ensemble has clearly been well thought out with the layered neckline and the coordinating shades of green. The sunglasses added some swagger against the preppy elements.

Julianne Moore: A long-time supporter of the designer, the actress cut a sharp figure in a monochromatic look. I was enamoured with her riff on suiting, breaking away from convention with the oversized blazer and leather track pants. The strappy sandals and clutch enlivened the mix.
