Front Row @ Calvin Klein 205W39NYC Spring 2018

The front row at the Calvin Klein 205W39NYC Spring 2018 show on Thursday (September 7) during New York Fashion Week featured no shortage of stars dressed in their Calvins—so to speak.

Lupita Nyong’o: While Lupita often opts for bold colours and patterns, here she wore a dressed-up variation on jeans and a tee with her white top and high-waisted denim. The turquoise chandelier earrings and deep-blue handbag brought her signature bold flair to elevate the look beyond the ordinary.

Kate Bosworth: Western-chic was clearly Kate’s mood. And, while this matching work shirt and jeans featured a heavy-handed embroidery, the pastel pink and white tonal hues ensured the ensemble maintained a lighter sensibility.

Millie Bobby Brown: The dress was darling and fresh; but I believe she slightly overindulged on the bronzer.

Lupita Nyong’o In Elie Saab – Comic-Con 2017: Marvel Studios ‘Black Panther’ Presentation

Also making a return to the scene, Lupita Nyong’o was at the Marvel Studios ‘Black Panther’ Presentation during San Diego Comic-Con 2017 on Saturday (July 22).

Her affinity for bold hues has not waned, that is, if this Elie Saab Resort 2018 ensemble is any indication.

This matching top, trousers and duster is how Elie Saab does dressed-down, with a crave-worthy mix of wavy, vibrant green shades sufficing for sparkling sequins and extensive embellishment.

But there was something refreshing about this laid-back sense of glamour and flowing movement of the pieces.

The gold Alexis Bittar choker necklaces were unnecessary, although I was fully expecting to see a brighter, colourful lip here.

Women In Film 2017 Crystal + Lucy Awards

A group of talented beauties turned out for the Women In Film 2017 Crystal + Lucy Awards were held on Tuesday (June 13) in Beverly Hills, California. As Max Mara were a presenting sponsor, there were many looks from the design house on the red carpet.

Brittany Snow
: I love the playfulness of the oversized polka dot motif in Brittany’s summer-ready frock and its darling nod to retro styling with the centre midriff cutout and bow at the bodice.

Zoey Deutch: While Zoey also wore a monochromatic colour palette, her cream gown struck a much more dramatic chord with its asymmetric, black ribbon sash. But it was Zoey’s oxblood lip and gigantic spherical earrings that really intensified the darker glamour of this sculptural statement.

Lupita Nyong’o In Jason Wu – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

Lupita Nyong’o stood out for all the right reasons at the 2017 CDFA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City.

The ‘Black Panther’ actress wore a pale gold custom Jason Wu Fall 2017 dress, which looked breath-taking against her skin tone. The asymmetric neckline added a point of interest to the otherwise simple gown.

Channelling Grecian goddess vibes, the actress complemented her elegant look with a regal up-do. The Paul Andrew’s shoes were another masterstroke, adding subtle intrigue without screaming for attention.

This look was positively luminescent. It didn’t fight for attention amongst the other embellished CDFA looks, but it was quietly captivating.

Ara Vartanian jewels completed her look.

‘Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story’ London Screening

A dynamic trio of trend-forward stars were at the screening of ‘Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story’ in London on Tuesday (May 16).

Salma Hayek: Salma prettified this Gucci Resort 2017 ensemble by wearing the strong, plaid skirt with a feminine ruffle blouse and sculpted heels, although the leather jacket did contribute a tougher edge. It was a solid effort for Salma; I was just slightly bothered by the fit of the skirt around the hips, as I would have preferred a more streamlined finish.

Lupita Nyong’o: I was delighted to see Lupita back on the red carpet in this statement-making Fendi Spring 2017 ensemble that brought in her love of bold hues with the red turtleneck sweater. It takes a certain talent to pull off the directional edge of the crop top and those cropped parachute pants, and she definitely fit the bill. Plus, her styling and her beauty look were on point from top to toe.

Naomi Campbell: The supermodel was not ready to bid adieu to sheer yet, as she wore it in a lace top with this decorative, sexy spin on suiting from the Alexander McQueen Spring 2017 collection. Her sleek bob helped increase the chic factor of the look.

Lupita Nyong’o In Prada – 2017 Met Gala

It’s been a while since we saw Lupita Nyong’o on the red carpet, but judging by her Prada gown worn to the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1), it would appear she hasn’t lost that magic touch.

I was very excited not only by the bright coral hue, but also by the organza flowers across the neckline which cascaded down the back adding plenty of flare.

Colour has always been the foundation of Lupita’s style, so if you don’t witness it in the dress, you’re bound to catch some colour in her makeup.

Was the rainbow eye shadow a step too far, or are you loving the creativity of the look?
