Jonathan Simkhai and Janet Mock celebrate International Women’s Day

Celebrities turned up to help Jonathan Simkhai and Janet Mock celebrate International Women’s Day on Thursday (March 8). The duo invited friends to a special dinner to participate in The Standard’s Ring Your Rep initiative, while benefiting Swing Left.

Nikki Reed: Demonstrating that sophistication and athleisure aren’t mutually exclusive, she projected a luxe casual air in a longline jacket and track bottoms. The tailoring and vertical white stripes had a flattering lengthening effect.

Jaime King: The actress reinvigorated classics with the sweeping hem of her Jonathan Simkhai trench coat encircling a pair of cropped blue jeans. Nicholas Kirkwood sliders added a pop of freshness and a modern finish.

Tasya van Ree: The artist toughened up a black button-down with the form-fitting trousers and vertiginous strappy shoes. The final flourish was her signature hat. It was sleek and chic.

The CFDA, WWD & Variety Celebrate Runway To Red Carpet Initiative

To celebrate the inaugural launch of the Runway to Red Carpet initiative, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Variety and Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) hosted a star-studded luncheon on Tuesday (February 20) at the Chateau Marmont, which was sponsored by Karma Automotive.

A range of starlets were in attendance. However, if you had just looked at their ensembles, you’d never know they were at the same event—so diverse were their modes of dress.

Olivia Munn: I like the sunny outlook of this Veronica Beard Spring 2018 warm-weather-ready suit set, with the drawstring detailing adding an element of feminine allure. Obviously, the shorts didn’t stand up so well to the creases from sitting.

Lea Michele: Opting for a more romantically feminine offering, Lea wore a Zuhair Murad floral gown with a ruffled peplum. I can imagine this dress looked very pretty in the garden outside.

January Jones: I appreciate the directional, urban-forward mood the actress was setting with this Off-White Resort 2018 look—complete with that slick-back ponytail. However, I know the deconstructed, pinstripe skirt will have many saying it looks as if she wrapped a bolt of men’s shirting material around her waist.

Harper’s BAZAAR CDGA Celebration

Harper’s BAZAAR and the CDG celebrated the top costume designers and nominees of the 20th CDGA with an event on Saturday (February 17) in West Hollywood, California

Serayah McNeill: This highlighter-yellow Alexandre Vauthier fitted mini dress may not have been anything new, but it fit her to a T and the colour was a bright revelation—plus the drape at the front added more sultry appeal. Giuseppe Zanotti gold sandals rounded out her look.

Laura Marano: The beauty of this Tadashi Shoji Spring 2018 design was in its colouful floral embroidery, to which the sheer elements offered just an elegant hint at peek-a-boo allure. A Tadashi Shoji ‘Charlotte’ clutch completed the look.

Hong Chau: Personalized and progressive, Hong edged up her frothy baby-blue Adeam dress with an Adeam Spring 2018 metallic embossed jacket.

2018 Producers Guild Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The 2018 Producers Guild Awards was the event to attend in Los Angeles on Saturday (January 20), with a host of star making appearances.

Holly Hunter: While this look isn’t going to remain in our minds for long, I love the high waist and geometric-print bodice on the Elizabeth Kennedy Spring 2017 gown. A perfect blowout and arms that are giving us all major workout inspo are keeping Holly on the fashion map.

Timothee Chalamet: The ‘Call Me By Your Name’ actor has certainly been stretching his fashion legs his first award season, and continues to experiment. Since we have mostly seen him in more shrunken styles, this slightly oversized double-breasted jacket seems to be a departure. I’m not crazy about it on its own, but I like it as a entry into his overall body of red carpet ‘work’.

Leslie Mann: I consider Leslie to be one of the most underrated stars to regularly grace the red carpet, and this Reem Acra gown, paired with Irene Neuwirth jewels proves my point: The gown has absolutely everything I love in a gown: Bright colors, a gorgeous print, exquisite detailing and and overall joyful vibe. Thanks for never letting me down, Leslie.

Nikki Reed In Sophie Theallet – ‘Bayou With Love’ Jewelry Launch

Nikki Reed and Dell recently announced a jewelry line, ‘Bayou With Love,’ made from recycled tech on Tuesday (January 9) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

To launch the new eco-line, she looked to the Sophie Theallet Spring 2016 archives for her look.

Intentionally or not, the look resonated with a certain earthy chicness, given its colour palette along with the pebbled patterning of the sheer top and the striations of the skirt.

The choice of the similarly patterned bra was smart here, as it melded within the print of the top without appearing too bare.

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.
