Jonathan Simkhai and Janet Mock celebrate International Women’s Day

Celebrities turned up to help Jonathan Simkhai and Janet Mock celebrate International Women’s Day on Thursday (March 8). The duo invited friends to a special dinner to participate in The Standard’s Ring Your Rep initiative, while benefiting Swing Left.

Nikki Reed: Demonstrating that sophistication and athleisure aren’t mutually exclusive, she projected a luxe casual air in a longline jacket and track bottoms. The tailoring and vertical white stripes had a flattering lengthening effect.

Jaime King: The actress reinvigorated classics with the sweeping hem of her Jonathan Simkhai trench coat encircling a pair of cropped blue jeans. Nicholas Kirkwood sliders added a pop of freshness and a modern finish.

Tasya van Ree: The artist toughened up a black button-down with the form-fitting trousers and vertiginous strappy shoes. The final flourish was her signature hat. It was sleek and chic.

Jaime King In Oscar de la Renta – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

Jaime King graced the red carpet at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California, joining Miley Cyrus, Karen Gillan and Lea Michele.

With frothy layers of white tulle and a smattering of cascading gold embellishment, she oozed ethereal prettiness in an Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2018 gown.

The whimsical mood was kicked up a notch with her floral jewellery.

Even with the ornate metallic bodice, there is a carefree nature to the style I find most appealing.

The CFDA, WWD & Variety Celebrate Runway To Red Carpet Initiative

To celebrate the inaugural launch of the Runway to Red Carpet initiative, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Variety and Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) hosted a star-studded luncheon on Tuesday (February 20) at the Chateau Marmont, which was sponsored by Karma Automotive.

A range of starlets were in attendance. However, if you had just looked at their ensembles, you’d never know they were at the same event—so diverse were their modes of dress.

Olivia Munn: I like the sunny outlook of this Veronica Beard Spring 2018 warm-weather-ready suit set, with the drawstring detailing adding an element of feminine allure. Obviously, the shorts didn’t stand up so well to the creases from sitting.

Lea Michele: Opting for a more romantically feminine offering, Lea wore a Zuhair Murad floral gown with a ruffled peplum. I can imagine this dress looked very pretty in the garden outside.

January Jones: I appreciate the directional, urban-forward mood the actress was setting with this Off-White Resort 2018 look—complete with that slick-back ponytail. However, I know the deconstructed, pinstripe skirt will have many saying it looks as if she wrapped a bolt of men’s shirting material around her waist.

HFPA and Instyle Celebration of the 2018 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Many more style darlings were at the HFPA and Instyle Celebration of the 2018 Golden Globe Awards on Wednesday (November 15) in West Hollywood, California.

Serinda Swan: This Styland ensemble brought every bit of smoldering sizzle we’d expect from a hot-red gown except manifested in a suit, and I loved every minute of it—especially with the matching red lip and handbag.

Andrea Riseborough:
The event saw Andrea reinvent her look again, as she rocked a new Galaxina hairstyle with an equally galactic metallic jumpsuit. Directional makeup and decorative wrist cuffs completed the look that may split the vote—but I think we can all agree that there will be no boredom with this punchy, experimental look.

Olivia Culpo: Some may fault the visible cups underneath this Monique Lhuillier Spring 2018 gown. But, the wispy beauty of the tulle and its glinting embellishment had a sense of enchantment, regardless.

2017 Baby2Baby Gala Red Carpet Roundup

There were many more celebrities at the 2017 Baby2Baby Gala on Saturday (November 11) in LA, where Gwyneth Paltrow was honoured.

Jessica Alba: Even though she was wearing black, the actress was as glowing as ever. She dressed her burgeoning baby bump in a lace, form-fitted look from the Brock Collection Spring 2018 collection that brought plenty of sultry glamour to the event. Giuseppe Zanotti shoes completed the look.

Jennifer Garner: With an angelic approach, Jennifer wore a white Roland Mouret ‘Cheverley’ gown, which featured high-impact cape sleeves as a dramatic touchpoint.

Alessandra Ambrosio: I think we can all agree that this floral Ermanno Scervino Spring 2018 gown was a subtler take on the model’s favoured overtly sexy style. She accessorised the sweetly feminine look with Narcisa Pheres earrings and a Pasquale Bruni necklace along with the Lee Savage ‘The Space’ clutch.

CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Show Red Carpet Roundup

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund show on Wednesday (October 25) in Los Angeles, California presented a myriad of exciting looks thanks to the number of stylish women in attendance.

Millie Bobby Brown: This minimalist Calvin Klein look helped cement the ‘Stranger Things’ actress’s status as a young starlet who has an innate sense of style. Some might deem this outfit as a tad too sophisticated for a 13-year-old, but I found the mix of the white halter dress against the bold black accessories brilliant. It showed that younger celebs don’t always need to go the princess route.

Nikki Reed: The actress’s Emporio Armani Spring 2017 separates had an easy elegance. Critics might find that the ensemble looked too much like pjamas, but the vibrant colour and the contrasting candy cane-like stripes on the cuffs and hem presented a fun finish. The tailoring was also beautifully done. The look was styled with Casadei sandals and a Lee Savage clutch.

Kaia Gerber: The model was another one who sported a chic outfit that revealed a mature sense of styling. The demure below-the-knee Veronica Beard Spring 2018 dress didn’t feel dowdy thanks to the white and red check. Plus, her bold accessories lent a youthful vibe to the frock.
