2015 Met Gala Roundup

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

A flurry of even more bold names descended on red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), where their colourful variety of looks only contributed to this year’s fashion extravaganza.

Anna Wintour
: As the gala co-host, the ‘Vogue’ editor-in-chief dressed thematically (for her, anyway) in a Chanel Spring 2015 Couture gown featuring dimensional, all-over poppy embroidery, which had been lengthened from the runway’s original shorter version. She should have maintained her signature cap sleeve, as the flower petal statement shoulders translated as a bit cumbersome, despite their inherent artistry.

Bee Shaffer: Like her mother, Bee also found inspiration in flowers, opting for a mahogany blossom gown by Alexander McQueen. I much preferred this look to Anna’s, especially with the enchantment of the beautifully embroidered Chinese cranes that alighted down the back of the dress.

Who Wore Suno Better…Gabrielle Union or Amanda Holden?

Who Wore Suno Better Gabrielle Union or Amanda Holden

Gabrielle Union and Amanda Holden wore the same Suno crinkle effect dress from the Resort 2015 collection less than 24 hours apart.

Gabrielle wore a lilac version with silver metallic Alejandro Ingelmo pumps for her guest appearance on ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’, while Amanda opted for an olive green version styled with Burberry heels in a complementary hue while attending the Birmingham auditions for ‘Britain’s Got Talent’.

Both wore the dress well, so at this point I would revert to the shoes, which are equally on point. In this case I would have to say I prefer the lilac over the olive green, so Gabrielle wins for me.

Gabrielle Union In Sachin & Babi – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Gabrielle Union In Sachin & Babi - The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Gabrielle Union made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Tuesday (February 24) to promote her new TV show, ‘Being Mary Jane’.

The actress was looking as smoking hot as ever wearing a Sachin & Babi dress from the Fall 2014 collection that was a mesmerising vision of alluring colour-blocking, which gave the look a sophisticated edge while the print – with the plunging neckline – boosted the feminine flair.

Simply styled with Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, a plump red lip rounded out this gorgeous after-dark look.

Prada The Iconoclasts, New York 2015

Prada The Iconoclasts, New York 2015

Prada hosted an evening to celebrate the latest chapter of ‘The Iconoclasts’ installation project with a private viewing of their collaboration with distinguished costume designer Arianne Phillips during New York Fashion Week on Thursday (February 12).

Hailee Steinfeld: Even with the vivid print of the trousers and the steely blue colour of her top, what captivates me here is her makeup, especially that plump red lip. The look itself is an eclectic mix of pieces from Prada’s Spring 2015 collection featuring a coat with contrast stitching, which was a signature of said collection.

Bonnie Wright: The British actress has long been a member of the Prada family. On this occasion she wore a Prada contrast-stitch dress that echoes her style sensibility: simple, classic, no fuss.

Gabrielle Union: The ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress was not about to let the sub-zero temperatures of the city come between her and her Prada crop-top look. The touch of sparkle accented on her pleated skirt gives this causal offering an after-dark flourish. Black Prada sandals and Vale jewels completed her easy breezy look.

Gabrielle Union In Gauri & Nainika – 2015 NAACP Image Awards

Gabrielle Union In Gauri & Nainika - 2015 NAACP Image Awards
Gabrielle Union stunned at the 2015 NAACP Image Awards, hosted on Friday (February 6) at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

The ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress and nominee blew me away in a beautiful ballet-pink gown by Gauri & Nainika.

The immaculate lines created by the criss-cross neckline and sweeping full skirt were alluring, all the more so with the peek-a-boo side cutouts and open back detail.

She likewise styled the look flawlessly with a sleek high ponytail, smoldering smoky eye and mauve-toned lip.

Pastel pink never looked so powerful.
