BALMAIN Celebrates LA Boutique Opening and Beats by Dre Collaboration

BALMAIN’s bevy of beauties all came out to play on Thursday (July 20) in Beverly Hills to celebrate the opening of the French house’s first-ever West Coast boutique as well as the launch of the BALMAIN Special Edition Beats Studio Wireless and Powerbeats3 Wireless, which became available on July 19.

The BALMAIN Resort 2018 women’s and men’s collections made the rounds throughout the evening, set against music sets by DJ Kiss and DJ M.O.S. as well as a special live performance by MIGOS.

Here, all the dazzling BALMAIN looks that creative director Olivier Rousteing and his celebrity friends served up.

Hailee Steinfeld
: Never shy of toying with the more avant-garde, Hailee was a statement-making starlet in the BALMAIN army on this night with her striking head-to-toe suit of fashion armor that she commanded with ease.

Kim Kardashian: Mixing low-key with high-octane, she undoubtedly garnered attention with her more casual crop bralette paired with an embellished, windowpane skirt. Keeping the look beautifully simple in its styling, she wore Lucite heels that were nearly invisible along with nude makeup and long Cleopatra locks to complete the very Kim K look.

Kate Bosworth
: The true epitome of a party dress defined, this flirtatious frock was sophisticatedly edgy in its gilded, backless design. But it was the playful fun of the tutu that really delivered the soiree-ready whimsy. Giuseppe Zanotti pumps completed the look.

Monica In Balenciaga – 2017 ESSENCE Festival

Monica attended the 2017 ESSENCE Festival, where she spoke onstage on Friday (June 30) in New Orleans, Louisiana.

I’m sure many of you will join me in first seeing a men’s nightshirt in this Balenciaga Resort 2017 candy-striped design.

Yet, the breezy ease with which Monica wore this witty interpretation of resort-style lounge wear did somewhat captivate and draw me in.

Her platinum, pixie—cut as sharply as that chopped sleeve—did much in the way of elevating this particular look, making it both as relevant and as polished as a dressing gown can be.

What do you make of it?

Monica In Gucci – 2017 NBA Awards

Monica showcased her new platinum blonde hair on Monday (June 26) while attending the 2017 NBA Awards in New York City.

The singer was not one to shy away from colour as she teamed her new look with a striking Gucci Resort 2017 skirt.

Going for a different tact on top, she pared down the sequins with a restrained sheer blouse which complemented the tulle hem at the base of her skirt.

I love the sense of fun and party spirit oozing from this look, even though she didn’t opt for any of the runway styling.

2015 BET Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2015 BET Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the a few more of the attendees from Sundays (June 28) 2015 BET Awards.

Janelle Monae: If it’s got a cape on it, Janelle will wear it. This SAFiYAA cape look is just one of many the singer has donned recently.

La La Anthony: The TV host was one of the few who nailed it at this event. While her Peter Pilotto colourful dress was a shorter re-run from Cindy Crawford’s look from last week, at least this look was season appropriate complete with yellow Giuseppe Zanotti sandals which can’t be missed.

Kelly Rowland: I mean? What the hell is this? Was Kelly trying to audition for ‘Black Swan 2’? This Lever Couture was tragic on so many levels. Too many to count.

Monica Brown In Alexander McQueen – 2012 BET Awards

Monica Brown was one of the many performers who paid tribute to the late Whitney Houston at the 2012 BET Awards yesterday evening.

Her emotional rendition of Whitney’s gospel classic ‘I Love The Lord’ even had Soulja Boy shedding a tear.

Monica performed her tribute wearing an Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 dress from the ‘Plato Atlantis’ collection; the last produced by the late designer.

As a long-time fan of Alexander McQueen it’s not a surprise that she opted to wear this dress featuring a kaleidoscopic snakeskin print, v-neck and cap sleeves.

What is a surprise is to see this look as a rise-and-fall gown, as only mini dresses were presented in this print.

Opting to keep the same hairstyle she wore on the red carpet, she added nude pumps to her look.
