16th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball Red Carpet Roundup

While Zendaya channeled retro elegance for the 16th annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball on Saturday (June 3) in Brentwood, California, the other stars in attendance chose their own distinct routes of glamour for the occasion.

Jaime King: For Jaime, that meant an embellished Miu Miu Resort 2017 midi dress that took cues from the ’90s rave scene in its smattering of crystals and its printed feather motif. Styled with equally crystallized shoes, this ensemble would make any magpie jealous. I actually loved the free-wheeling sense of energy the look brought to the purple carpet that it ironically matched.

Halle Berry: Halle had plenty of glitz in her Gosia Baczyńska Spring 2017 sequined dress and metallic Yeon coat, which shone an even brighter light on her bump that she showed no shyness in flaunting. Yet, as tends to be the case with Halle’s looks lately, the overall effect was quite dated. Removing the jacket and the sheer turtleneck piece from the dress—plus a sleeker ‘do—would have been a step in the right direction. Jewels from Eva Fehren, Ileana Makri and Sylva & Cie completed her look.

Rebecca Gayheart: Inspired by the Grecian goddess look that used to be so prevalent, Rebecca wore a draped white Derek Lam Fall 2010 gown.

VH1’s ‘Dear Mama’ Event

Famous moms were in the mix at VH1’s 2nd annual ‘Dear Mama: An Event to Honor Moms’ on Saturday (May 6) in Pasadena, California.

Halle Berry: The actress showcased her penchant for sheer and slits in a Ports 1961 ensemble featuring a distressed mesh top and asymmetric trousers. Unfortunately, I wasn’t buying her bod-flaunting ways this time around as the entire look crossed both unflattering and dated territories. And, the embellished platform heels contributed to the problem.

Kelly Rowland: I much preferred Kelly’s approach at the event, as she donned a feminine Cynthia Rowley floral-embroidered dress, which was both sweet and sexy without a hint of try-hard.

La La Anthony: La La was not one to choose the girls or the gams, as she showed off both in a red Zachary The Label figure-hugging gown, complete with a body chain and gold strappy sandals.

Halle Berry In Atelier Versace – 2017 Met Gala

Halle Berry attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Sheer genius is what I have to call this Atelier Versace jumpsuit-gown hybrid.

I love the movement of this design, with the gold-flecked dimensional pieces creating a rich, undulating form from the halter neckline to the captivating train. It was the exact right fusion of the avant-garde and the glamorous.

Halle might have healed my see-through fatigue in one fell swoop with this look.

Atelier Swarovski earrings completed the look.

Halle Berry In Atelier Versace – 2017 Oscars

 

Halle Berry was at the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

Whereas some stars brought the volume with their full gowns, the actress let her gorgeous curls handle that element.

As for her ensemble, she instead opted for a sleeker silhouette in her Atelier Versace Spring 2017 fluid column gown.

The soft veils of layers, encrusted with crystals, brought a shimmering radiance to the look.
