Front Row @ Michael Kors Collection Fall 2018

Some of Michael Kors’ most stylish femmes were out in force for the Michael Kors Collection Fall 2018 show during New York Fashion Week on Wednesday (February 14).

Jourdan Dunn: A vision in lavender with this Michael Kors Spring 2018 ensemble, the model played with proportions and textures in the oversized, nubby sweater and diaphanous skirt. The look particularly came alive in the sunlight, and when Jourdan walked, as the swaying, flirty movement created the full effect—sunnies and sandals, included.

Zendaya Coleman: This Michael Kors Resort 2018 ensemble gave us a whole new way of seeing sporty joggers, the iconic trench, and even white pumps. If you had described this look to me—her vampy hair and makeup included—I would have said it would never work. Somehow, Z makes sense of it in real life, though, and doesn’t miss a cool-girl beat.

Blake Lively: As it was Valentine’s Day after all, Blake celebrated the day of love with her red patent Resort 2018 trench styled with sweet Christian Louboutin ‘Corafront’ heart pumps and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Sassy and sophisticated.

Emilia Schuele In Christian Dior – ‘Isle of Dogs’ Berlinale International Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Emilia Schuele joined Greta Gerwig for the ‘Isle of Dogs’ premiere which served as the opening ceremony for the 68th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany this evening (February 15).

She looked beautiful wearing a rust hued Christian Dior Resort 2018 bustier dress, which showcased modern romance.

Yes, there is a strong case of déjà vu here, but that boils down to this signature style having been worn in several guises since this collection was first presented, and the fact that this dress has already been worn by Juno Temple.

Is it time for Dior to shelved the Resort 2018 collection?

‘Black Panther’ New York Screening Red Carpet Roundup

More ladies joined Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira for the final leg of the ‘Black Panther’ promo tour at the film’s New York screening on Tuesday (February 13).

Joan Smalls: In a head-to-toe Tom Ford Spring 2018 look, the model was giving us a power suit—done in such an alluring, modern way with the jumpsuit and blazer combo. I loved the subtle seduction of this look, with the pink toe-cap heels to add an element of sass.

Letitia Wright: The patchwork, folk-rock influences of the COACH Pre-Fall 2018 collection were loud and proud in this eclectic mashup of a look that is a bit of an acquired taste in its completely disparate, quirky pieces. I’m still trying to find the rhyme and reason to it.

Zosia Mamet: I liked the styling of this Monse Spring 2018 cropped sweater on the runway, with the fringed skirt. With the windowpane, super-long trousers, it made less sense. David Yurman jewels completed the look that had me wishing for a more cohesive flourish to round out the screening.

Greta Gerwig In Valentino – ‘Isle of Dogs’ Berlinale International Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

I was delighted to see Greta Gerwig grace the red carpet for the ‘Isle of Dogs’ premiere which served as the opening ceremony for the 68th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany this evening (February 15).

I love how the intricate embroideries and appliqués that sit on this sheer tulle Valentino Pre-Fall 2018 gown make this an exquisite showpiece which leaves a lasting impression.

From certain angles, I wished the lining had been lighter in colour, but from others; it serves the purpose of being the perfect backdrop to enhance the gold detailing.

Front Row @ Tory Burch Fall 2018

The front row at Tory Burch’s Fall 2018 presentation was a lovely collection of stars who showed up in support of the designer during New York Fashion Week on Friday (February 9).

Julianne Moore: As the actress favours black, this Tory Burch Pre-Fall 2018 ensemble offered a quirky remix of the hue with the colour-block pants. I love the warm tones with her auburn hair, but the dragging hem of the pants does give me pause.

Zoey Deutch: As if she was coming from another era, Zoey celebrated the best of vintage-inspired modernity with this belted trench coat. I love the inherent ladylikeness of the ensemble that balanced a delicate sense of charm with strong sophistication. The oxblood bag and shoes were likewise a compelling way to add depth and drama to the look.

Sienna Miller: With a colour palette that reflected Julianne’s pants, Sienna’s Tory Burch Pre-Fall 2018 dress was topped with a cozy, furry coat. It certainly played into her boho sensibility, especially given the slightly unkempt styling with her fringe bag and slides. I cannot fault the coat, as I’d be wearing one, too, to stay warm in NYC’s brisk temps. But I did want to see more of the dress underneath.

‘Black Panther’ New York Promo Tour Menswear Roundup

As the ‘Black Panther’ promo tour jets along in New York City, two of the movie’s most stylish men have continued to make waves, joining Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong’o.

Chadwick Boseman: At the Marvel Studios Presents: Black Panther Welcome To Wakanda on Monday (February 12) during New York Fashion Week, Chadwick showed another side to his style personality in this Fear Of God Fall 2017 outfit styled with Public School x Nike sneakers and David Yurman jewelry. The consummate style crush can even pull off this cool-kid, urban attitude with such polished flair.

Michael B. Jordan: Joining Chadwick there, Michael showed off his style prowess, too, in this Prada ensemble paired with Christian Louboutin ‘Roadie’ boots. At first, I found myself questioning the shades of tan, khaki, and burnt orange. But, somehow the different color pieces formed their own compelling mosaic that totally made sense.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Gabriela Hearst – ‘Black Panther’ New York Screening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw stepped out at the ‘Black Panther’ New York screening on Tuesday (February 13) where she joined Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong’o.

The actress appears to have been inspired by the film’s costumes as she wore a black Gabriela Hearst Fall 2018 dress.

She typically gravitates towards colour. When she does opt for black, there are normally some details to enliven the inky base.

Here, there is the blue cording down the front and sides and the soft folds. I fear some might interpret the effect as messy, but had this been in a different fabric, the simple slip would have lacked presence.

Demonstrating a knack for subtle details, her eyes were awash with a bright eyeshadow to play up the trim.
