Self-Portrait London Store Opening

Celebrities and influencers flocked to the opening party of the new Self-Portrait London Store, located on Albemarle Street in Mayfair this evening (March 22).

Self-Portrait has always been considered the modern woman’s brand of choice, so designer Han Chong was in great company alongside Gemma Arterton, Gemma Chan and Carey Mulligan.

Gemma Arterton: The British actress was wearing the most instantly recognisable Self-Portrait look, as her outfit mixes ladylike texture and directional attitude in equal measure. This asymmetrical navy lace top adds sensuality to the mix with the shoulder-baring cut, while the leg wide trousers amps up the chic appeal. A bag from Emily Ratajkowski’s The Kooples collection completed the look.

Gemma Chan: I was immediately charmed by this Self-Portrait Fall 2018 pleated look, as it boasts a refined elegance that we’ve come to expect from Gemma.

Carey Mulligan: We don’t often see Carey in colour, so this Self-Portrait Fall 2018 look is a moment to really savor. The foundation of this dress in classic, but Hong reimagined this keyhole dress with chic detailing intrinsic of the Self-Portrait brand. The look was complete with a Roksanda bag and beige pumps.

Gemma Arterton In Alberta Ferretti Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Gemma Arterton was another beauty in black at the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England, alongside Saoirse Ronan, Rebecca Ferguson and Leslie Bibb.

The actress wore a dark Alberta Ferretti Spring 2018 Couture gown in solidarity with the Time’s Up movement.

She frequently wears black dresses on the red carpet and this subdued style demonstrates why.

There’s something captivating about the inky shade against her dark hair and pale complexion.

With the dynamic pleating, there is such wonderful movement in the gown, which shows off her figure in an alluringly elegant manner.

Gina shoes, a Jimmy Choo bag and Ara Vartanian jewels completed the graceful look.

Given the higher neckline and detailing, she could have lost one accessory or two.

EE British Academy Film Awards Nominees Party Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of exciting looks at the EE British Academy Film Awards nominees party at Kensington Palace on Saturday (February 17) in London, England.

Karen Gillan: The ‘Doctor Who’ actress shimmered in a Temperley London gown. Despite the all-black colour palette, this feels like a few different dresses in one look. It’s too bad that the tulle skirt gives the appearance of weighing down the top part.

Allison Janney: The Best Actress in a Supporting Role nominee ditched the gown in favour of an August Getty trench dress. The gray number had a marvelous lengthening effect which showcased her statuesque beauty. It was beautifully cut and as sophisticated as any dress. If I must find fault, I wish the sleeves were shortened to eliminate the bunching. Nine West shoes, a Judith Leiber clutch and Maxior tourmeline earrings added more pizzazz.

Kristin Scott Thomas: Another Best Actress in a Supporting Role nominee, the beauty turned heads in a Valentino dress. The dragon-inspired design nods to Chinese New Year and projects a joyful opulence. The style hails from the same Pre-Fall 2018 collection as Greta Gerwig’s gown.

‘Le Bal Surrealiste’ Dior

The Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture show featured an imaginative surrealist mood, and I can only imagine that continued in force at Le Bal Surrealiste Dior that was hosted afterwards on Monday (January 22) during Paris Fashion Week with Dior’s constant fans dressed to impress in the label.

Bella Hadid: Black has been Bella’s Paris Fashion Week colour, and this sheer frock continued that trend whilst working right in line with Bella’s provocative style. I like the romantic, off-the-shoulder silhouetted and embellishment, which I feel brings a bit more composure to the see-through look. A ‘Lady Dior’ quilted bag and Dior shoes completed the picture, with a sculptural hairstyle to play to the party theme.

Gemma Arterton: Gemma balanced her sleek ’do and power red lip with the girlish sophistication of this sparkling, tea-length dress that was ladylike in silhouette yet dazzling in sequin embellishment.

Annabelle Wallis: It looks as if the fashion house’s logo briefs are back in action with this sheer corset gown. I was grateful for the chic moto jacket to bring some edge to the sultry, borrowed-from-the-boudoir look.

Gemma Arterton attended the Lady Garden Gala in aid of Silent No More Gynaecological Cancer Fund and Cancer Research UK at Claridge’s Hotel on Tuesday (November 28) in London.

Nostalgic 60’s vibes take centre stage with this Rejina Pyo Fall 2017 dress.

Amplifying it’s visual impact with gleaming sequins throughout, the actress opted to dial down the daintiness by realigning the sweet bow detailing as they also appeared on her Christian Louboutin heels.

Gemma Arterton In Ralph & Russo – Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards 2017

Gemma Arterton brought a dose of metallic magic to the Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards 2017 on Thursday (November 2) in London, where Hayley Atwell and Jodie Foster were also in attendance.

We just recently saw Fan Bingbing in the megawatt metallic from the Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 collection, and I was more than happy to see another piece from the lineup here.

I love the high-octane allure of this dress, with the rosy bronze-gold tone balancing out the structured edginess

I question the wide ankle-strap black sandals, as I found them a bit distracting to the look, but the black clutch helped to integrate them more seamlessly.
