Olivia Palermo In Banana Republic – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

I was excited to see Olivia Palermo at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City, as she was debuting a look from her forthcoming capsule collection with Banana Republic.

It’s the label’s first-ever co-branded collection, and judging by this enviable dress, it was very much a good call to collaborate.

I love the rich cayenne hue in partnership with the femininity of the cold-shoulder silhouette and flounced bodice and sleeves. The button accents and belting offer a nearly trench-inspired mood for modern, classic appeal.

A shame about the less streamlined, real-life fit and the creases on Olivia, as they compromised its full potential.

Christian Dior Cruise 2018 Welcome Dinner

There were a chic set of Dior darlings in attendance for the Christian Dior Cruise 2018 Welcome Dinner in Malibu, California on Wednesday (May 10).

Freida Pinto: Making a chic statement in more ways than one, Freida dressed up her message tee with a sophisticated long gray skirt and navy overcoat along with cage sandals and a matte red lip.

Kiernan Shipka: The style-forward starlet kept it simple and sweet in a short, black velvet piece paired with sheer booties.

Juno Temple: Juno stayed firmly planted in fall with this heavy, black coat and what looked to be the same platform boots from her prior Marc Jacobs appearance. The creamy lace dress peeking through underneath was the only note of spring.

Burberry Celebrates The Launch Of The DK88 Bag

Burberry-wearing beauties came out in force to celebrate the launch of the Burberry DK88 Bag, hosted by Christopher Bailey, at Burberry Soho on Tuesday (May 2) in New York City.

Ruby Rose: I always look forward to seeing what Ruby has to offer on the red carpet, and her dynamic style took another cool-girl turn with this Burberry ensemble. It was like fashion’s very own Oreo cookie, with the crisp precision of black, menswear-inspired tailoring enveloped by the rich creaminess of a dramatic ivory cape. I love the metallic finish the handbag brought to the look, too.

Ellie Goulding: Laden with rich, textural embellishment, this patterned Burberry frock was only in need of a sleeker updo.

Serena Williams: Serena continued her tip-top pregnancy style with a vamped-up, lacy Burberry wrap dress in which she defined her burgeoning bump with a snakeskin belt.

Christian Dior Fall 2017 Front Row

Paris Fashion Week is in full tilt, with the Christian Dior Fall 2017 presentation on Friday (March 3) one of the highly anticipated shows on the calendar. A flurry of Dior-dressed beauties were seated front and centre for the runway action.

Rihanna: Parisian chic with plenty of edge, Rihanna wore a Christian Dior Spring 2017 ensemble. The gracefully tailored coat-dress simply served as the canvas for the drama of her statement accessories that put the power into this look, beginning with the leather beret and J’ADIOR shades and ending with the patent cross-body bag and embellished suede boots.

Uma Thurman: Tailored sophistication was presented in this Dior Pre-Fall 2017 ensemble with the brush of the floral tulle skirt adding a softer femininity to the look.

Sienna Miller
: Also donning a Pre-Fall 2017 look, the actress managed the oversized layers and heady mix of floral motifs quite beautifully while maintaining her typically bohemian sensibility.

Schiaparelli Spring 2017 Couture Front Row

There was no shortage of starlets wearing their Schiaparelli best and seated front row at the brands Haute Couture Spring 2017 show during Paris Fashion Week on Monday (January 23).

Thandie Newton: With a large dose of va-va-voom, the actress wore her heart on her dress in an asymmetrical black number with a sultry slit up the leg. The sculptural red jacket that adorned her shoulders added even more sass to the ensemble.

Olga Kurylenko: Her appearance at the Schiaparelli show saw the actress wearing a completely different jumpsuit look from the one debuted at the Christian Dior show. Here, the sportier element disappeared to be replaced by a fluid silhouette and a power print. Like Thandie, she too wore a jacket over her shoulders for an additional edge.

Christian Dior Spring 2017 Couture Front Row

The Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring 2017 show was hosted as part of Paris Fashion Week on Monday (January 23), where a range of Dior-clad beauties were in attendance—all dressed consistently in varying interpretations of black and white.

Kirsten Dunst: The darkness of this look, defined by a Dior black wool and silk crepe coat dress, was set off by the delicate whimsy of the Dior black silk embroidered skirt peeking through at the bottom. The actress also wore Dior heels alongside an embellished Dior clutch while bringing another layer of classic allure via her true red lip.

Diane Kruger: The corseted waist and full, billowing skirt of this Dior Haute Couture black silk crepe dress with pleated underskirt created a modern interpretation of Christian Dior’s ‘New Look’ silhouette from the ’40s. The actress’s elegantly modern entrance was completed by Dior bow-accented heels, a Dior clutch, and a Dior choker necklace.
