Front Row @ Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture

A couple of days after the Dior Homme show, more Dior-clad darlings descended on the Rodin Museum for the fashion house’s runway show, the first big one of Paris haute couture week on Monday (January 22).

Emily Blunt: Sleekly elegant styling was the only way to go for this ornately printed Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2018 frock, and Emily complied.

Annabelle Wallis: Statement shirts continue to be a relevant trend, and Annabelle’s fit the bill. I like how she styled it with the graphic jacket (which coincidentally reflected the show’s checquerboard set), high-waist, cropped trousers, and hat for a slice of Parisian rebel-chic.

Willow Smith: Perhaps taking a cue from the surrealist mood of the show in her white eye makeup, Willow offered a more girly perspective than we would expect from her urban-cool style in this sheer tulle gown juxtaposed with a tuxedo vest.

Disney’s D23 EXPO 2017 Red Carpet Roundup

Many more Disney darlings joined the likes of Anika Noni Rose, Mandy Moore and Kristen Bell for Disney’s D23 EXPO 2017 in Anaheim, California on Friday (July 14) and Saturday (July 15).

Emily Blunt: With fresh, platinum waves, the actress kept it feminine and fun in this rose-printed Dolce & Gabbana frock emboldened by the intensity of her bold lip and red-satin sandals.

Daisy Ridley: We’ve seen a number of girly frocks at the D23 EXPO thus far, so I was delighted by Daisy’s slight twist on traditional femininity in this Lela Rose ensemble. I love the mod romance of the, off-the-shoulder, bell-sleeve topped paired with the cropped trousers and quirky Pierre Hardy eye-accented shoes.

Karen Gillan: A dazzling example of a successful Miu Miu moment, this sequined peacock slip dress was just embellished enough—but far and away from overcooked territory. The metallic shoes were a great match, but I would have loved to see Karen’s locks treated as more than afterthought.

Emily Blunt In Marc Bouwer – 11th Annual American Institute For Stuttering

Ever so radiant, Emily Blunt was at the 11th Annual American Institute For Stuttering ‘Freeing Voices Changing Lives’ benefit gala on Monday (June 26) in New York City.

Taking a sophisticated, monochromatic approach, she donned a Marc Bouwer dress in a bold, red hue to which she chicly coordinated her lip colour.

I love the measured drama that the exaggerated ruffle sleeves delivered here, bringing impact without overwhelming the look.

Her styling was also on point, beginning with the sleek ponytail as long locks would have interfered with the high neckline and sleeves.

Delightful Sophia Webster crystal-embellished heels plus subtly delicate jewels including Dana Rebecca Designs earrings and rings from Graziela Gems and EF Collection rounded out the look.

Anne Hathaway In Valentino & Emily Blunt In Peter Pilotto – Jessica Chastain & Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo’s Wedding

Over the weekend, Jessica Chastain and Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo celebrated their wedding in northern Italy, with both Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt in attendance.

‘La dolce vita’ was alive and well in both Anne and Emily’s looks, as they channeled a vibrant colour palette of bold reds, pink, and fuchsia.

I love how Anne added a striking turquoise necklace and Giuseppe Zanotti flat sandals to her Valentino Spring 2017 silk patterned gown, further enlivening its romantic, bohemian flare.

Emily took a more measured approach in her Peter Pilotto Fall 2017 foliage-printed dress that was beautiful in its colour saturation. However, I did prefer the original runway silhouette as I found it to be more inspired and interesting from top to toe. Rupert Sanderson metallic heels completed her look on a non-consequential note, when an equally bright shoe—even turquoise like her earrings—would have provided more splash.

Anne’s look won out for me. Which did you prefer?

Emily Blunt In Alexander McQueen – 2017 BAFTAs

Emily Blunt bought the drama to the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

Thank goodness for this dress! I love Emily, and her usual style, but her Cavalli Couture gown for the SAG Awards wasn’t her best look, so I’m so glad she has bounced back and is on top form once again.

The striking and complicated medieval embroidery to the top of this dress is classic Alexander McQueen. Sarah Burton, the Head Designer at the House, is a fan of whimsical and romantic embellishments, and the flowers and doves here are gorgeous.

And the ruffled and layered skirt adds just enough dimension to this gown to be visually stunning from any angle. It’s a trend from this red carpet too – layered skirts are in!

Lorraine Schwartz jewels finish Emily’s look perfectly.

Are you a fan of this dress?
