Gwendoline Christie In Iris van Herpen Couture – ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ London Premiere

Gwendoline Christie joined Kelly Marie Tran and Laura Dern for the ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ London premiere held at the Royal Albert Hall this evening (December 12).

There was time when Gwendoline stayed true to two designers: Vivienne Westwood and Giles Deacon; so I’m delighted to see her branch out and explore new designers and silhouettes.

I think this Iris van Herpen Fall 2017 Couture gown might just be my favourite ever look from the actress.

I love how the voluminous veil of wispy semi-sheer tulle showcases a more sensual side to her style, while not compromising her strong, commanding presence on the red carpet.

There is so much detail and intrigue that I didn’t even find myself thinking about the sheerness; as I was imagining how beautifully this Couture piece would’ve glided down the red carpet.

Gwendoline Christie In Gucci – ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ LA Premiere

Gwendoline Christie attended the ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ premiere on Saturday (December 9) in Los Angeles, California.

The British actress wore a head-turning custom Gucci gown.

The statement appeal doesn’t end with the shimmering fabric: it’s punctuated with a bow at the neck, and defined by bold shoulders and silhouette-honouring gathered seams before ending with a high slit.

Everything about this look is bold, powerful and on-theme. The only problem I have with this look are the cream satin pumps.

‘Top of the Lake: China Girl’ New York Premiere

Gwendoline Christie and Elisabeth Moss brought suiting options to the red carpet for the ‘Top Of The Lake China Girl’ premiere on Thursday (September 7) in New York City.

Gwendoline Christie: I would’ve been more inclined to get excited about her Vivienne Westwood Couture look had the draped detail been at the side and not at the front. I’m guessing it held more weight in movement. It certainty looks stunning in the sketch below.

Elisabeth Moss: Opting for tried and true tailoring, Elisabeth kept the styling of her A.L.C. satin lapel suit simple and chic sans blouse. Subtle Jennifer Meyer jewels and a watermelon lip colour rounded out her look. This might just be my favourite look from Elisabeth this year.

‘Top of the Lake: China Girl’ – Television Critics Association Press Tour

The 2017 Summer Television Critics Association Press Tour brought out four femmes behind ‘Top of the Lake: China Girl’ for a panel discussion on Saturday (July 29) in Beverly Hills, California.

Elisabeth Moss: I always find myself slightly underwhelmed by Elisabeth’s style, as I think she often dresses too maturely. This Camilla and Mark pleated frock fell somewhat in that category, although the brighter colour and print was a step in the right direction. However, the high neckline isn’t the most flattering or youth-achieving for her.

Gwendoline Christie: While Gwendoline’s 6’3” height will always command attention, I was bored with her choice of menswear-inspired ensembles as she can do so much more with her statuesque form than this standard-issue silk blouse and black trousers uniform.

Nicole Kidman: With a rosy outlook, Nicole donned a dainty Rochas Resort 2018 embroidered ruffle dress. I always like seeing her channel a softer, feminine side, but the illusion neckline and overbearing sleeves quickly ruined me on this prairie frock.

Alice Englert: Marching to the beat of her own style drum, Alice kept it quirky and casual in her plaid shirt and boyfriend jeans, topped off with sculpted teal sandals for a style-rebel look that certainly made no apologies.

Clearly, there was no fashion pow-wow prior to this panel, given this highly eclectic, motley mix of looks.

Gwendoline Christie In Bella Freud – ‘Game of Thrones’ Comic-Con 2017 Autograph Signing

Gwendoline Christie attended the ‘Game of Thrones’ autograph signing with HBO during Comic-Con International 2017 on Friday (July 21) in San Diego, California.

At 6ft 3″ (1.91 m) Gwendoline already has a powerful presence, so why not combine that with a power suit?

Trending for Spring 2017, power suits have become the go-to look for the likes of Rita Ora, Cara Delevingne and Evan Rachel Wood.

The thing about the oversize suit trend is that you don’t want to look like you’ve been playing dress up in your father’s wardrobe. So, Gwendoline’s custom Bella Freud three-piece suit was to fit perfect with both structure and a defined shape to complement her statuesque figure.

I love the power blue hue for a feminine feel and the white pumps aid the fresh feel.

If I was to nitpick, I’d wish the buttons were white or tonal.

‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 7 Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

In addition to Sophie Turner and Rose Leslie, there were a number of other stars in attendance at the ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 7 premiere on Wednesday (July 12) in LA.

Maisie Williams: The starlet channeled mature allure in a Milly slip dress that stood out for its luscious green hue, which she reflected in her eye makeup. By styling the look with black accessories along with Maria Black jewelry, she added a tougher edge.

Kit Harington: Handsome as ever, Kit wore a monochromatic Dolce & Gabbana ensemble that had no chance of being one-note with the decoratively embossed blazer, contrast lapels, and slippers that gave the look a regal, off-duty flair.

Nathalie Emmanuel: Nathalie took the opportunity to walk a more progressive line with this Vivienne Westwood dress that was not only recognizable in the designer’s signature silhouette but also for having abstracted visions of her face printed across it. I love her choice of red lip and silver Sophia Webster ‘Lilico’ embellished shoes as they provided a bold finish without overcooking the oddity of the frock.

Front Row @ Miu Miu Cruise 2018 Show

The front row at the Miu Miu Cruise 2018 show, held during Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week on Sunday (July 2), was chock-full of Miu Miu-donning darlings—each embracing the quirky charm of the label in their own unique way.

Elle Fanning: Looking every bit like a modern-day Miu Miu princess, Elle masterfully wore a precious look from the Fall 2017 collection that got its sweet edge from the explosion of oversized paillettes and magpie-worthy embellishment. What better, then, than a pearl-encrusted headband—a modern girl’s tiara, of course—to top off her ballerina bun.

Alexa Chung: With a more traditional edgy offering in play, Alexa wore another interpretation of scintillating sequins in this silvery-gray frock topped off with a studded, leather moto jacket. Of course, it was the embellished buckle footwear in schoolgirl plaid that really put the look into the realm of signature Miu Miu quirk.

Teresa Palmer: While there would be no sparkling embellishment to speak of in Teresa’s look, the whimsical cherry print more than made up for it in this vintage-inspired, ruffle frock. The styling lent itself even more to the eccentric Miu Miu twist with costume-y bauble earrings, a seemingly out-of-place blue purse, and glittery platform heels each playing unusual companions whilst elevating the dress’s twee spirit.
