The BRIT Awards 2018 Red Carpet Roundup

Long, short, and everything in between, the eclectic looks marched on with so many more stars in attendance at The Brit Awards 2018 on Wednesday (February 21) in London.

Jennifer Hudson: I loved the sizzling hue of this red-hot Ralph Lauren gown, but not the fit. The patent-plasticized look would have been all shine had the silhouette been sleeker without the awkward folds.

Adwoa Aboah: Rita Ora wasn’t the only one in feathers, as Adwoa also took a flight of fancy with this Sonia Rykiel white dress. The model’s directional looks can sometimes be a tough sell, so I like the pristine romance she presented here with Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ sandals and a Time’s Up rose to complete the picture.

Maya Jama: Given this House of Holland mini was a custom piece, I expected an impeccable fit and the pink metallic number delivered. She complemented its flirty, girlish side with Sophia Webster embellished sandals. But, I would have left the diamond choker at home.

Front Row @ Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Couture

The dreamy Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Couture show was held on Monday (January 22) during Paris Fashion Week, with a trio of front-row femmes in the house to witness all the confections.

Kylie Minogue: The beautiful blush tone of this silky, asymmetrical gown conveyed a softly romantic quality on Kylie. A darker sandal to match her nail lacquer would have escalated the dramatic effect even more.

Natalia Vodianova: Of course, I was immediately drawn to this electric-blue number, but what heightened my affection were the little details like the buttons down the side, the dynamic patterning, and the swishy, car wash paneling. Modern sophistication at its finest.

Arizona Muse: A pair of red pumps enlivened this girly, embellished black frock. I think a similar bold crimson shade would have been equally fitting for her lip to tie the look together.

Kylie Minogue In Alice McCall – ‘Swinging Safari’ Melbourne Premiere

Kylie Minogue stepped out at the ‘Swinging Safari’ Melbourne premiere on Thursday (December 14).

The singer’s Alice McCall Resort 2018 dress exuded alluring femininity with the asymmetric detailing creating a striking effect with the polka dot pattern.

The ruching could have come across as messy, but the tailoring of the frock married with the cut-outs produced a chic finish that enhanced her petite frame.

Dolce & Gabbana shoes added the right amount of shine.

Kylie Minogue In Halpern – 2017 Attitude Awards

Kylie Minogue picked up the ‘Legend’ Award at the 2017 Attitude Awards held at The Roundhouse on Thursday (October 12) in London.

Her Halpern high-neck sequin-embellished Fall 2017 mini dress recalls hazy disco-ball reflections in hedonistic 70s nightclubs, from Studio 54 in New York to Le Sept and Le Palace in Paris, which she paired with equally reflective sandals.

I’m not surprised Kylie didn’t opt for the popular two-piece Halpern look we’ve seen worn by Marion Cotillard, Katy Perry and Cardi B, mostly because Kylie never met a mini dress she didn’t love and the aforementioned look would’ve drowned her petite frame.

Irving Penn Exhibition Private Viewing Hosted by Vogue

A private viewing, hosted by Vogue, for the Irving Penn exhibition at the Grand Palais was held on Sunday (October 1) during Paris Fashion Week.

Adwoa Aboah: Taking a break from walking the runways at Paris Fashion Week, Adwoa posed in a Richard Quinn Spring 2018 look that offered an invigorating, happy mix of ditzy florals. You would think with so many bold, competing prints that this would translate as disjointed. But, on the contrary, I loved this look on Adwoa, and I also credit its success to her minimal approach to the styling, with a black sandal and red pout all she needed. Flower power, indeed.

Kylie Minogue: I think it’s safe to say that Kylie put this Alice McCall ‘More Than A Woman’ fringe gown to work for her—as it was made to be spun around. As fun as it was, I was a bit tassel fatigued and the muted, mauve-pink colour wasn’t my favourite for the vibrancy of the entertainer, but she attempted to bring a splash of vividness via her lipstick.

Dita von Teese: With a look that riffed on the field-of-poppies print from the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2017 Couture collection, Dita maximized proportions with this look. I have mixed feelings on the balloon sleeves, as they might be lumped into a costume-y circus category. But, the colours were striking in contrast to the black pencil skirt.
