2015 Met Gala Roundup

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

A flurry of even more bold names descended on red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), where their colourful variety of looks only contributed to this year’s fashion extravaganza.

Anna Wintour
: As the gala co-host, the ‘Vogue’ editor-in-chief dressed thematically (for her, anyway) in a Chanel Spring 2015 Couture gown featuring dimensional, all-over poppy embroidery, which had been lengthened from the runway’s original shorter version. She should have maintained her signature cap sleeve, as the flower petal statement shoulders translated as a bit cumbersome, despite their inherent artistry.

Bee Shaffer: Like her mother, Bee also found inspiration in flowers, opting for a mahogany blossom gown by Alexander McQueen. I much preferred this look to Anna’s, especially with the enchantment of the beautifully embroidered Chinese cranes that alighted down the back of the dress.

Christopher Kane & mytheresa.com Dinner

Christopher Kane & mytheresacom Dinner

The starlets aligned to celebrate London-based designer Christopher Kane along with MyTheresa.com at a dinner hosted at Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, California on Tuesday (April 28).

Jaime King: After her last appearance, anything would have been an improvement. So perhaps that is why I am feeling more positive than usual by the pregnant actress’s Christopher Kane coat with contrast lapels and pockets, blue top, and bag, which combined boxy, androgynous styling with an ever-so-slight hint of girly allure in the blue lace. Barbara Bui brogues and bare-faced makeup complemented the mannish effect.

Hailee Steinfeld: The starlet took a significantly more feminine approach in a Christopher Kane sheer, floral-embroidered top and figure-hugging, zipper pencil skirt. Hailee continues to show us a range of styles, with this one showcasing her sultrier side. So I’m glad she added the youthful zing of the magenta-pink Christopher Kane bag and corresponding bright lip for some lighthearted fun.

Nora Zehetner: Showing off the power of sporty-chic separates, Zora donned a Christopher Kane ensemble consisting of jogger-style, drawstring pants elevated by a basket-weave-patterned top and platform sandals.

Burberry ‘London In Los Angeles’ Event

Burberry 'London In Los Angeles' Event

Burberry celebrated its ‘London In Los Angeles’ event, which took place at the iconic Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California. As with any Burberry event, there were of course many celebrities in attendance.

Jaime King: I am not sure what kind of statement the actress was trying to make here, but words fail me.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: Oozing sex appeal without trying, the British actress, who is very much part of the Burberry family, wore a contrast print mini from the Fall 2015 collection. I’m sure even the ‘Legs or Boobs’ police will let off the model for looking so drop dead gorgeous.

Rose Byrne: The sheer trend was a hot one on this red carpet. Unlike Jaime, I don’t feel repelled by this look as Rose pulls off this look with style and effortless grace. The gold accessories really enhanced the luxe feel of this look.

‘Dior & I’ LA Premiere

Dior & I LA Premiere

A chic set of Dior-clad darlings were at the Los Angeles premiere of The Orchard’s ‘Dior & I’ held at LACMA on Wednesday (April 15) in Los Angeles, California.

Jaime King: The pregnant actress was positively radiant in a Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2015 red wool dress that received the glitter treatment with a pink sequin top. She also wore a Dior matching red clutch, Dior black patent boots, and Dior pearl earrings. I can’t help smile at this happy look and its retro flair—right down to the bubblegum-pink lip.

Britt Robertson
: The starlet was charming in a Dior white compact Milano wool jersey dress with sequin embellishment. A Dior clutch, deep burgundy lip, and glossy curls enhanced the swingy little frock.

Ashley Madekwe: Dressed in a Dior Spring 2015 white and green jacquard cotton coat dress, she accessorized with a Dior clutch, black Dior pumps, and Dior earrings. The flash of silver metallic in the bag added a spark to the more angular, structured lines of the dress with minimalistic makeup completing the directional look.

2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet Roundup

Vanity Fair Party

Here is an quick roundup from the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, which took place on Sunday (February 22).

Jane Fonda: The actress shows us that Zuhair Murad doesn’t always spell tacky. This Spring 2015 Couture jumpsuit is divine and she is working it like no other. Kudos to her. Jimmy Choo ‘Creole’ pumps and a Rauwolf clutch accessorized her look.

Regina King: This Nicolas Jebran gown won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I love the artful colours on this design. I don’t, however, like the illusion neckline. Not close enough to her skin tone.

Leslie Mann: Like Naomi Watts, Leslie went the white suiting route, layering up with a selection of gold Neil Lane jewels the look probably didn’t really require so much of.

ELLE’s Annual Women in Television Celebration

ELLE's Annual Women in Television Celebration

ELLE’s Annual Women in Television Celebration took place at the Sunset Tower on Tuesday (January 13) in West Hollywood, California, with many women in television in attendance.

Sarah Hyland: The ‘Modern Family’ star opted for head-to-toe white. I love the voluminous structure of her DKNY Spring 2015 dress, which only highlights the alluring cut-outs further. Styled with a classic Edie Parker clutch, the look was given a touch of colour via her hot-pink lip.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead: Pretty in pink, the actress wore an Osman Spring 2015 dress accented with black fringed details, which she complemented with matching pumps and a box clutch.

Jenna Dewan Tatum: The ‘Witches of East End’ golden girl wore a slinky metallic dress from Reem Acra’s Fall 2014 collection styled with Kurt Geiger London ‘Belgravia’ sandals.
