Stella McCartney Celebrates The Official Opening of 23 Old Bond Street

Stella McCartney hosted a ribbon cutting to celebrate the official opening of her flagship store on 23 Old Bond Street in London on Tuesday (June 12).

The designer alongside Kate Moss cut a giant red ribbon wrapped around the new store’s balcony as friends and family waved flags, confetti and bubbles from the shop windows and storefront.
Guests included Kylie Minogue, Idris Elba and Mindy Kaling.

Stella McCartney: Trying to go incognito, the designer wore a camo print jumpsuit from her Pre-Fall 2018 collection. You may remember that supermodel Claudia Schiffer wore this same piece in London last month.

Idris Elba & Sabrina Dhowre: The last time we saw Sabrina at the royal wedding we were less than impressed. On this occasion she was like a brand new woman in her summery blonde locks and uber chic, loose-fit Stella McCartney red look. What I loved most about this duo is how well co-ordinated they were. Mr Elba was looking very dapper in his Stella McCartney Fall 2018 sweater.

Idris Elba In Givenchy & Sabrina Dhowre In Gucci – Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding

Idris Elba and his fiancé Sabrina Dhowre joined Oprah Winfrey and the Beckhams at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle for the royal wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle this morning (May 19) in Windsor, England.

The actor kept things simple and formal on this occasion, whereas his fiance, Sabrina, opted for a full Gucci look.

Heavily featuring the brands signature green and red webbing, this didn’t work for me.

The cardigan was felt too blasé for a royal occasion. The webbing throughout the dress, cargidan, shoes and ‘Sylvie’ bag was too matchy matchy, and not in a good way.

I don’t hate the look. She does look beautiful, but it doesn’t work for me in this setting. It’s almost too casual.

‘Bold & Fearless’ Santos de Cartier Watch Launch Red Carpet Roundup

The ‘Bold & Fearless’ Santos de Cartier watch launch event on Thursday (April 5) in San Francisco, California brought out many celebrities. They joined Lily CollinsSienna Miller and Chloe Sevigny.

Sofia Boutella: The Algerian stunner brought to mind decades gone by in a Prada gown. I’m sure there will be many Marilyn Monroe comparisons given her blonde bob, red lipstick and the halter style. The look was still unique as it had a whimsical finish with the draped embellishment around the waist marrying with the down-to-there neckline.

Dave Franco: The actor uplifted a sleek black suit with a fiery printed button-down. With the shirt done up to the neck, it presented a crisp finish, making a tie unnecessary.

Freida Pinto: The actress opted for statement texture rather than surface embellishment in a Roland Mouret gown accented with a Gucci belt. It’s a look that one wants to see up close and far away. The open draped sides reveal a hint of skin, creating an alluring finish and helping to shed the tweed fabric’s suiting reputation. Salvatore Ferragamo shoes completed her look.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The guys have been out in force over the past few days. Here’s a look at what they were wearing.

Tye Sheridan: At the ‘Ready Player One’ European premiere in London on Monday (March 19), warmth was a key part of Tye’s Burberry Tailoring double-breasted suit and overcoat—as opposed to some of the ladies on the red carpet like Tallia Storm. The striped, collarless dress shirt underneath was an intriguing way to finish the dapper look.

Edgar Ramirez: With a retro-forward, brown suede Brunello Cucinelli Fall 2018 suit and colour-block sweater, Edgar fit in perfectly as he joined Judith Light at the For Your Consideration event for FX’s ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ on Monday (March 19) in LA.

Matthew Rhys: At the season 6 premiere of ‘The Americans’ on Friday (March 16) in Washington, D.C., alongside Keri Russell, Matthew looked sharp in one of my favoured suit shades: aubergine. I do think this Rag & Bone ensemble would have been fine without the black tie and belt.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The men didn’t take a break this weekend either, with the 2017 Toronto Film Festival summoning many of them to the red carpet—plus a few other occasions.

Bill Skarsgard: At the ‘It’ Stockholm premiere, Bill wore a tweedy, printed Bottega Veneta suit that he enhanced with the deep navy dress shirt. I just wish he had buttoned the top button of his jacket.

Alan Cumming: At the ‘Battle of the Sexes’ TIFF premiere on Sunday (September 10), Alan showed off his quirky style in a Stella McCartney double-breasted pinstriped suit. The tapered pants didn’t really do the look any favours, and I generally have the same reaction to men’s platform shoes as I do to women’s—being.

Aubrey Drake Graham: At ‘The Carter Effect’ TIFF premiere on Saturday (September 9), the entertainer dressed up in a Prada ensemble that was emboldened by its aubergine palette.
