Models @ The Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Models stormed the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California, with a range of head-turning looks—for better or worse.

Alessandra Ambrosio: The naked dress had another showing with this Ralph & Russo Couture embellished, sheer design, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. There will be no doubt her body isn’t rocking, but I know eyes will be rolling at the complete transparency of the look.

Ashley Graham: This Rubin Singer gown featured a recognizable, slit-to-there silhouette, but it was the gleaming sheen that upped the ante. A swept-back hairstyle and Sophia Webster sandals completed the look.

Lily Aldridge: The golden-goddess look served Lily well in this Versace liquid-gold gown that had a certain chainmail effect. Christian Louboutin heels and Bvlgari jewels and bag finished her glamorously regal entrance.

Kendall Jenner stars in the Missoni Spring 2018 Ad Campaign

Gigantic pictorial patchworks by the American artist Rachel Hayes are suggestively framed by White Sands National Monument and transformed into poetic multicolored extensions of the Missoni collections and guiding themes of the new Summer 2018 Campaign.

Conceived by Angela Missoni and shot by star fashion photographer Harley Weir, Kendall Jenner appears sinuous and filiform; resonating mystique and glamour. The face is hidden by the extra-large, fluidly-draped brims of Missoni hats in concentric stripes, as though they were umbrellas grazing the shoulder and shielding her from the searing New Mexico sun.

Jenner is the protagonist, together with model Filip Roseen, in imagery that portrays the looks from Missoni’s Women’s, Men’s and Eyewear Collections for Summer 2018.

Visions of an ode to natural charm and beauty are sensually and boundlessly energized through color. An expression of Missoni’s language, color unfolds in iconic vertical-and-horizontal stripes as well as the heterogenous rectangles found in Rachel Hayes’ work: patchworks of soft, sensual polychromatic silk that create sumptuously fluid designs against the dazzling monocromia of the glimmering desert landscape. They become shaded, transparent backdrops superimposed upon the azure skies painted in the background while filtering rays of sunlight; fluttering flags, billowing sails distended by the wind. Trails of material and tails of color generate a spectacular continuum within the garment, transforming it into a pulsating and infinite emblem.

2018 Golden Globe Awards Parties

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards were a study in many glamorous renditions of the colour black. And, for the most part, the Globes after parties followed suit with the hue taking on all measures of late-night allure.

Diane Kruger: After a regally glamorous entrance at the Globes, Diane was at the InStyle and Warner Bros. post-party, where she imbued black, cropped trousers with a bit of creamy lace in this Alexander McQueen Spring 2018 ensemble. I have a feeling that the tattered, asymmetrical effect of the lace bustier top will turn some away from the more experimental look.

Tessa Thompson: At HBO’s official after party in LA, Tessa suited up in an Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2017 Couture menswear-inspired look that delivered plenty of intriguing edge when styled with the MATEO jewelry and bauble-accented sandals. I was happy for the sheer shirting underneath to balance the boxier shape of the tuxedo blazer.

Nina Dobrev: The actress flaunted her toned abs at the InStyle party in this Ralph Lauren cutout gown. Even with the futuristic liquid-silver paneling, something about the look read a bit dated. Alexis Bittar choker completed her look.

Kendall Jenner In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2018 Golden Globe Awards

Kendall Jenner made an appearance at the 2018 Golden Globes on Sunday (January 7), joining Tracee Ellis Ross and Alexis Bledel.

The model made a bold statement in a Giambattista Valli Fall 2017 Couture gown. The inky black colour was offset by the dramatic train and shorter front.

I appreciate the drama of the look, but crave more fluidity in the skirt and train. I also think this would have been better on a red carpet like the Met Gala or saved for a time when Kendall was the guest of honour.

Lorraine Schwartz dangling earrings topped off the look.

Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

The list of lovelies at Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’ on Friday (September 8) in New York City was seemingly unending, as a number of stars joined Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, and Kim Kardashian.

Gigi Hadid: Her hyper-embellished Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2017 ensemble, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, was so intricate and powerful of a statement that it really didn’t require the rhinestone clogs.

Kaia Gerber: Cindy Crawford’s model daughter was all grown up in a slinky Kristian Aadnevik Fall 2017 mini that had her looking like her mom more and more.

Kendall Jenner: There was little left to the imagination in this Dolce & Gabbana ruched, sheer number. Yet, ironically in spite of the see-through, I couldn’t help but still get a certain sophisticated, glam vibe with the look, which I will chalk up to its silhouette along with Kendall’s Old-Hollywood waves, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and Jimmy Choo sandals.

Who Wore Daisy Better? Kendall Jenner or Nicola Peltz?

There’s something sweet, casual and youthful about this white Daisy broderie lace-up corset dress, which no doubt attracted both Kendall Jenner and Nicola Peltz to wear it this summer.

Kendall wore hers on one of her many outings in New York City with Stuart Weitzman ‘Clingy’ booties and a Fendi ‘Peakaboo’ mini bag, while Nicola was spotted wearing hers with Chanel pumps and a straw boater on vacation with Anwar Hadid in Saint Tropez.

I love the city chic styling of Kendall’s look, but Nicola’s feels more naturally thrown together, so she wins for me.

Kendall Jenner’s Zimmermann dress may say Summer, but her Alexandre Vauthier Couture boots say Fall

It may be August, but Kendall Jenner has one foot firmly planted in fall—or, actually both feet.

While out and about shopping in New York City yesterday (August 1), the model was dressed for summer in a Zimmerman Resort 2018 floral frock that I loved for its girly romanticism and ruffly charm.

But, she would not be satisfied to let the sweeter side take hold, as she edged up the look with a sultry pair of black Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2017 Couture boots.

The result was nothing short of a mixed-personality look that featured not only a sexy-sweet dichotomy but also a strong divide between summer and fall moods.

But, by now, we know Kendall marches to the beat of her own fashion drum—clad in Alexandre Vauthier boots and all.
