2018 Golden Globe Awards Parties

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards were a study in many glamorous renditions of the colour black. And, for the most part, the Globes after parties followed suit with the hue taking on all measures of late-night allure.

Diane Kruger: After a regally glamorous entrance at the Globes, Diane was at the InStyle and Warner Bros. post-party, where she imbued black, cropped trousers with a bit of creamy lace in this Alexander McQueen Spring 2018 ensemble. I have a feeling that the tattered, asymmetrical effect of the lace bustier top will turn some away from the more experimental look.

Tessa Thompson: At HBO’s official after party in LA, Tessa suited up in an Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2017 Couture menswear-inspired look that delivered plenty of intriguing edge when styled with the MATEO jewelry and bauble-accented sandals. I was happy for the sheer shirting underneath to balance the boxier shape of the tuxedo blazer.

Nina Dobrev: The actress flaunted her toned abs at the InStyle party in this Ralph Lauren cutout gown. Even with the futuristic liquid-silver paneling, something about the look read a bit dated. Alexis Bittar choker completed her look.

2017 GQ Men of the Year Party

The 2017 GQ Men of the Year party brought all the pretty girls to the Chateau Marmont on Thursday (December 7) in Los Angeles, California.

Kate Beckinsale: The British actress’ style would be classed as ultra girlie, but she took a walk down a new path wearing this Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2017 leather mini. I love how the neon green adds touch of 80s rebellious glam, which Kate tempers with her tights and black pumps combo. My first thought when I saw this look was, “if ever there was look which required her famous pony, this was it”.

Sofia Boutella: The actress opted to wear a full Prada Resort 2018 look which kinda has a bit of everything. While I’m not the biggest fan of dress-obscuring coats on the red carpet, the piece prevents this outfit from feeling like just another sheer dress, while adding some cool-girl charm to the look.

Gal Gadot: Wonder Woman made a bold entrance at this event wearing red Dior dress styled with black Louboutins. This is what I would’ve expected Kate Beckinsale to wear, as it possesses all her girlish signatures.

Miu Miu Spring 2018 After Party

After the Miu Miu Spring 2018 show, more Miu Miu-clad starlets showed up for the after party on Tuesday (October 3) in Paris.

Emily Ratajkowski: While she wore a more reserved, covered-up look to the show, Emily returned to her standard skin-baring M.O. with this embellished mini.

Adwoa Aboah: After Adwoa’s colourful ensemble earlier in the week, I found myself missing that rush of vibrancy in this all-white ensemble. It also seemed a bit too mature and mumsy for the young model.

Naomie Harris: I loved Naomie’s look at the show, and she continued to have some fun with this playfully embroidered black dress and booties. The artsy, abstract motifs were all the whimsy that the frock needed.

Front Row @ Miu Miu Spring 2018

Miu Miu-dressed darlings were out in force to celebrate the Miu Miu Spring 2018 collection on the final day of Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (October 3).

Elle Fanning: From the bodice to the crotch, everything seemed to droop just a tad low on this jumpsuit, but I still loved the punchy glamour Elle brought to the look with her crimson lip along with the multi-colour confetti of embellishment on her sandals and earrings.

Naomie Harris: This cropped two-piece look was all about youthful femininity, with Naomie’s beautiful locks echoing the fun spirit. I love how the felt skirt glinted with just the hint of embellishment while the matching buckle clutch and sandals rounded out the look with a bolder finish.

Dakota Fanning: While we know the perils of taking a seat in a satiny fabric such as this, the electric-blue hue quickly absolved the girly frock of its creases. Embellished platforms made it all the more a signature Miu Miu 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.

Front Row @ Valentino Spring 2018

The Valentino Spring 2018 front row had no shortage of chic beauties eager to take in designer Pierpaolo Piccioli’s take on elegant whimsy during Paris Fashion Week on Sunday (October 1).

Natalia Vodianova: Her previous less-is-more M.O. at the Givenchy show was replaced by a more-is-more look in this Valentino Resort 2018 keyhole frock, resplendent with folk patterning. Glittery Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Luce’ ankle boots and a statement earring ensured this was no ordinary maxi dress.

Marion Cotillard: Offering up her blonde ’do in a punk faux-hawk of sorts, the actress donned a Valentino Resort 2018 ensemble that merged menswear-inspired pinstripes, sporty track pants, and feminine, sheer lace. What united the motley collection of trends was the sophisticated colour palette, to which the kelly-green, embellished sandals simply did not make sense.

Izabel Goulart: I loved the romantic simplicity and feminine seduction of this Valentino Resort 2018 plisse dress, which flowed so beautifully and effortlessly around Izabel’s silhouette as she walked. Here, the green accents made perfect sense in the subtle piping at the neckline, the bow at the waist, and her matching clutch.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Spring 2018

As could be expected, the Christian Dior Spring 2018 fashion show brought together a number of beautiful femmes to celebrate the new collection during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 26).

Natalia Vodianova: While we’ve seen the signature ‘ChristianDior’ straps on dresses before, I loved the beaded variation employed on this Dior orange feather dress that delivered the best of both worlds between whimsy and elegance. Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Janice’ black suede corset booties and a black velvet ‘Le Coeur de Dior’ bag rounded out the look with an edgy-Victorian, fall spirit.

Emily Ratajkowski: Opting to not wear Dior, Emily donned a Brock Collection Resort 2018 dress that walked the line between romantic softness and seduction with its corsetry bodice and thigh-high slit. The look was styled with Altuzarra D’Orsay canvas pumps.

Alexa Chung: The writing was on the walls—or the sweater and skirt—with this Christian Dior ‘Lascaux’ print ensemble that was inspired by the Paleolithic cave paintings in Lascaux, France. She also wore Dior black booties and a black glazed calfskin ‘C’est Dior’ flap bag to complete the artsy, casually sophisticated statement.
