2018 Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of drama at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 20) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Celebrities joined, Janet Jackson, Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez.

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host glimmered in The Blonds. It had sensuality and shimmer, but it would have benefited from editing. Had the sequined fabric been on the bustier and the satin as the draped layer, it might have been more successful.

Hailey Baldwin: The model took the plunge in Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2018. The draping is splendid but the colour doesn’t do anything. The black version from the lookbook would have been preferable or a rich jewel tone. Not even the Jennifer Fisher jewels could enliven it.

Cyn: Cannes showcased a few similar looks to this Saint Laurent Fall 2018 dress, but with much stronger shoulders. The arm likely won’t prove as irksome as the heavy ruching on the skirt and the placement of the tie.

Variety’s Power Of Women: New York

Variety’s Power Of Women: New York event on Friday (April 13) had many influential women in attendance.

Padma Lakshmi: A beauty in red, the ‘Top Chef’ host put on a coordinated display from head to toe. Everything in her look was perfectly cohesive from the three-piece slim Styland suit to the sandals to her red lipstick. No statement jewellery was necessary as the fiery hue had such impact.

Alicia Keys: The singer experimented with silhouettes by teaming a Calvin Klein Spring 2018 dress with cropped pants and heeled mules. Had the trousers been full length, they would have had more of an elongating effect. I’m sure there will be others who will take issue with the statement tie belt.

Viola Davis: The actress wowed in pink at the 2018 Oscars, and she took the shade for a spin once again in a Pamella Roland dress. The pewter accessories and Toni & Chloe Goutal necklace bring a cool modernity to the feminine style.

Padma Lakshmi In Ester Abner – Elton John AIDS Foundation Gala

With va-va-voom flair, Padma Lakshmi whisked onto the red carpet of the Elton John AIDS Foundation Gala on Tuesday (November 7) in New York City.

There will be no denying the sultry seduction of her Ester Abner Resort 2018 corset and lace gown.

But, this is the kind of boudoir glamour I love, as it maintains a superior level of streamlined elegance and never ventures into try-hard or overly embellished territory.

With an oxblood lip for a touch of added drama, all she needed to finish the look was the chic effortlessness of a long, wavy bob.

Padma Lakshmi In Cushnie et Ochs – 2017 Inspire A Difference Honors Event

Padma Lakshmi joined Julianna Margulies and Gabrielle Union at the 2017 Inspire A Difference Honors event on Thursday (November 2) in New York City to show her support for ACLU.

The television host and author showed off her statuesque beauty in a Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2018 white column dress. The floral print across the hem enlivened the snow white base while also serving as a marvelous counterpoint to the gathered shoulders and chest cut-outs.

The gown was just as stunning on the reverse as the cut-outs carried around to reveal a low back detail.

2017 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is our roundup from Sunday’s 2017 Emmy Awards.

Shannon Purser: I felt this was quite a magical, fairytale moment for Shannon. Her custom Sachin and Babi gown was simply breath-taking. Not only in colour, but also in design. The look was styled with Swarovski jewels.

Judith Light: Some might say this Christian Siriano gown is dated, but Judith brings so much energy to the look, that one can’t help but be left in awe.

2017 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party

In advance of the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday, Entertainment Weekly hosted its Pre-Emmy Party on Friday (September 15) in West Hollywood, California.

Sophia Bush: This red Stella McCartney body-skimming dress with car wash slits held potential, but I wish the styling had been more complementary. A tonal red sandal like the Edie Parker clutch would have provided a more streamlined effect but I would have stopped the red at the makeup—red eye shadow is always a tough look to pull off.

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host also went bold with the eye shadow, hers an intense shade of violet. However, her sultry Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2018 floral-embroidered dress commanded enough attention on its own. I love that she didn’t resort to black pumps, but I’m wishing for a sandal here.

Mandy Moore
: With a shiny new play on an LBD, the ‘This Is Us’ actress donned a Sally LaPointe Pre-Fall 2017 sequin dress styled with Sophia Webster shoes and a red Jimmy Choo clutch. The style-forward edge of the turtleneck sweater piece grew on me, although at first, I did want to remove it.

2017 Time 100 Gala Red Carpet Roundup

There were many more looks to grace the red carpet for the 2017 Time 100 Gala on Tuesday (April 25) in New York City.

Naomi Campbell: The supermodel opted for an Alaia piece which was selected not only to colour coordinate with the step and repeat, but also because of its fine craftsmanship. Yes, it’s a bit heavy for spring, but Naomi has always marched to the beat of her own drum.

Margot Robbie: While I wish this Prada dress wasn’t so shapeless, the colourful embellishments – which reminded me of 100s and 1000s – the pale yellow hue, Delfina Delettrez jewels and the pretty pink purse did soften my stance and I have to say I love the look.

Ashley Graham: I love Ashley’s style, but I couldn’t get on board with what I feel is the over-styling of this look – starting with that choker. The look consisted of a Cami NYC camisole, Nili Lotan ‘Maya’ maxi skirt and Fleur Du Mal corset.
