Ellise Chappell In Theory – British Academy Television Awards Nominees’ Party

Ellise Chappell was back on the red carpet for the TV BAFTA nominees’ party held at the Mondrian London on Thursday (April 19).

The ‘Poldark’ actress wore a lava-red Theory suit which appears to have been influenced by Savile Row tailoring.

It’s beautifully cut in a long, lean shape, sharpened by structured shoulders and notch lapels.

The sophistication extended to her accessories which included black Louboutin pumps and a deeper red Arran Frances bag.

Alexis Bledel In J. Mendel – ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 Premiere

Alexis Bledel joined Elisabeth Moss for the premiere of Hulu’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 on Thursday (April 19) in Hollywood, California.

Like Jennifer Nettles, Alexis opted for a burnt velvet look from J. Mendel’s Fall 2018 collection.

The actress is known for her love for girlie frocks in fresh colours, so this darker mood is a huge change of direction, but one that I found just as successful as Jennifer’s outing.

Would I wear this dress in summer? No, but I love the end result thanks to the sleek styling which included Nicholas Kirkwood Lola Pearl sandals and a complementary clutch.

Meghan Markle In Black Halo’s Popular Jackie O Dress

Meghan Markle, who’s making women’s empowerment her passion cause as a soon-to-be royal family member, attended the Women’s Empowerment reception hosted by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting on Thursday (April 19) in London, England.

Those of you who have been around since the beginning of RCFA will immediately recoginse Meghan’s Black Halo Jackie O dress, which came in every colour imaginable.

The Jackie O was worn Tyra Banks, Scarlett Johansson, Kim Kardashian, Kelly Ripa, Blake Lively, Paris Hilton and many other celebrities around 2007 – 2012. It was worn so much that Jezebel named it, “The Dress That Won’t Die”.

Proving how popular this LBD continues to be, with its subtle-yet-flattering details: a draped asymmetrical neckline, knee length, and belted at the waist, the dress still looks as classic now, as it did back then.

Meghan styled her look with Aquazzura pumps, and carried a Gucci black velvet mini Dionysus clutch.

Elisabeth Moss In Christian Dior – ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 Premiere

Elisabeth Moss attended the premiere of Hulu’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 on Thursday (April 19) in Hollywood, California.

When I saw her in this Dior red dress and leather jacket combo, it immediately took me back to her Oscar de la Renta Cannes look.

In that setting the look didn’t quite work for me, but on this occasion I’m loving the vibe.

Elisabeth tends to sticks to fit-and-flare dresses that come in bright colours of which this is a classic demonstration. The ’60s- and ’70s-era she’s channeling here maybe something she’s picked up from her ‘Mad Men’ days.

Sassy embellished Louboutins and a matching red Tyler Ellis clutch completed her look.

Letitia Wright In Coach – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Letitia Wright paid a visit to ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Wednesday (April 18) in New York City.

I’m sure that many will want to see the ‘Black Panther’ actress’s Coach Fall 2018 outfit from all angles because it’s a delight of details.

The dress brings together a dark romance, whimsy, Victoriana, and grunge, yet it doesn’t feel disjointed. It has a cohesive moody fairy tale quality.

I’m particularity struck by how the brown pattern plays off her gorgeous complexion.

Nicholas Kirkwood shoes brought some edge.

Gwyneth Paltrow In Retrofete – Pre-Broadway Opening Engagement Of ‘Head Over Heels’

Gwyneth Paltrow smiled bright at the Pre-Broadway Opening Engagement Of ‘Head Over Heels’ at the Curran Theatre on Wednesday (April 18) in San Francisco, California.

Bringing subtle shimmer, she was clad in a Retrofete look. The mix of thin vertical stripes creates a dynamic pattern from both near and far away.

The metallic weave helped dress up the soft silhouette. The striped style still had a laid back elegance but it felt formal enough for the event.

Her low-key accessories ensured an effortless finish.

It all feels very authentic to her personal style.

Olivia Wilde In Elie Saab – ‘Kodachrome’ LA Premiere

Olivia Wilde joined Elizabeth Olsen for the LA premiere of ‘Kodachrome’ on Wednesday (April 18) in Hollywood, California.

The actress was a marvel of sequins, rhinestones and lace in her Elie Saab Fall 2018 ensemble.

The designer is known for creating ornate, ethereal gowns so it was nice to see separates — and inky black ones no less. It was also wonderful to see that they still retained the magical quality of the dresses.

She added some sex appeal to the look by layering a bra underneath the blazer. The open neckline ties in the lace panels in the skirt. The latter detail flitted from being modest to revealing, depending on how she posed.

Do you like the look?
