Refinery29 29Rooms Los Angeles: Turn It Into Art Opening Night

The Refinery29 ’29Rooms Los Angeles: Turn It Into Art’ opening night party saw a host of lovely ladies in attendance on Wednesday (December 6) in California.

Gabrielle Union: The ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress wore a TOME Fall 2017 bomber jacket and corseted shirt, plus some check trousers. I’m usually a big fan of Gabrielle’s style, but I couldn’t get on board with this look. I think the shirt is really the chink in her armor here.

Margot Robbie: With those power shoulders, it’s quite clear that Margot was paying homage to the 80s in this sleek Saint Laurent Spring 2018 look which she styled with Pierre Hardy ‘Laser’ pumps.

Janelle Monae: Did Janelle’s invite say come as art? That can be the only explanation for this Kaimin leather dress and Nange Magro // Dead Lotus Couture latex headpiece. You gotta admire her for committing to the look if nothing else.

2017 amfAR generationCURE Holiday Party

As the festive season ramps up, the 2017 amfAR generationCURE Holiday Party was held on Friday (December 1) in New York City with a trio of style setters in attendance.

Kat Graham: Rather than wear her pinstripes via the suiting trend, Kat opted for a deconstructed edge in this Valentin Yudashkin Fall 2017 dress. As per, I have mixed feelings about the semi-visible illusion panels, but I like this directional play on the traditional menswear fabric.

Sailor Brinkley Cook: This golden-nude Zac Posen Resort 2018 gown brought a whiff of an art-deco-inspired glamour. But, I was left with the feeling that something was unfinished—and also that the bodice was a bit on the snug side. Perhaps a statement earring and a bold lip would have rallied to the cause.

Olivia Culpo: Olivia can always be counted on to have a bit of fun with fashion, and this Ermanno Scervino Fall 2017 bustier party frock and its explosion of organza fit the bill. Both Amal Clooney and Kate Beckinsale have worn the dress before, so I was having several moments of déjà vu, but it still retained its charms on its third time out.

Variety’s 1st Annual Hitmakers Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

In addition to Hailee Steinfeld, a few other stars were at Variety’s 1st Annual Hitmakers Luncheon on Saturday (November 18) in LA.

Kat Graham: Ever so coordinated to the day’s signage, Kat donned a John Galliano Spring 2018 suit. But, what I loved even more was the cool, preppy edge she brought to the tailoring with Gucci ‘Brixton’ horsebit loafers and a matching, cream hat. It was so relevant and effortless.

Machine Gun Kelly: I’m really intrigued by what the entertainer is bringing to the scene. With this OAMC parka jacket, cropped plaid pants, and Reebok classic sneakers, he’s colouring outside the lines of unconventional style, yet without an overly zany sense of try-hard. I would have just skipped the bathrobe sash.

Sabrina Carpenter: Even those this sheer No. 21 Spring 2018 dress had an element of sportiness in the hoodie detail, I found the belt and black Casadei boots to be too harsh of contrast for its more ethereal quality. The same goes for the makeup look.

Kat Graham In Ronald van der Kemp Couture & Alexandre Vauthier – 2017 American Music Awards

Like Hailee Steinfeld, Kat Graham wore two looks during the 2017 American Music Awards on Sunday (November 19) in LA.

The first was a two-piece Ronald van der Kemp Spring 2017 Couture look which was immensely pretty, yet I struggled to get on board with this look from the waist down.

I’m not sure if it’s the pose, or the fit of the skirt which is the issue here.

SAG-AFTRA Foundation Patron of the Artists Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The red carpet was alight with stylish stars at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Patron of the Artists Awards on Thursday (November 9) in Beverly Hills, California.

Kristen Bell: It may be autumn, but the actress kept the spring spirit alive in a Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2017 dress. The yellow and blue blooms had an ebullient mood which was enhanced with Jennifer Meyer jewels and white heels.

Andrew Garfield: Cutting a dapper figure, the ‘Breathe’ actor broke away from coordinates, pairing a brown and navy check jacket with slim navy trousers. A dark blue sweater completed the ensemble, presenting a modern alternative to a suit and tie.

Tracee Ellis Ross: The ‘Black-ish’ actress’s love of fashion is apparent in many of her outfits, including this vintage Pierre Balmain dress from Shrimpton Couture. She committed to the glamorous retro theme with red Christian Louboutin pumps and a Les Petits Joueurs bag.

Who Wore Attico Better? Kat Graham or Katy Perry?

Kat Grahm wore her sequin-striped Attico Fall 2017 dress back in August to the harper by Harper’s BAZAAR September Issue cover party with Nina Dobrev, while Katy Perry lit up the streets of Manhattan last month while making her way to the GMA studios with her fellow American Idol judges.

Katy wins for me as I love that she added red pumps and because this style of dress fits firmly in her wheelhouse.

Kat’s attempts to make this super sexy was a tad off-putting. She should have let the dress shine – pun intended – naturally.

You can buy their sequin Attico dress from MATCHESFASHION.COM and Modaoperandi.

Kat Graham In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture – ‘Where’s The Money’ LA Premiere

Kat Graham is someone who has fun with fashion and trying different looks. This was evident at the ‘Where’s The Money’ LA premiere on Wednesday (October 18).

The former ‘Vampire Diaries’ actress sported a pinstripe Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2012 Couture suit which was anything but your typical pantsuit. The jacket was the statement piece with a long sleeve and sharp shoulder transforming into a slim scarf wrap. Soft, tapered trousers were a smart counterpoint.

I appreciate Kat experimenting with this look, although I understand it won’t be everyone’s favourite. The only thing I would have liked to see is the lapel worn flat rather than popped as the point of the notched collar against her neck was somewhat distracting.

White Casadei pumps brought out the contrasting details in the suit.

What did you think of the outfit?
