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.

The Teen Vogue Summit LA: Keynote Conversation

A number of starlets turned out for the Teen Vogue Summit LA: Keynote Conversation with ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ director Ava Duvernay and actresses Storm Reid and Rowan Blanchard on Saturday (December 2) in Playa Vista, California.

Storm Reid: The 14-year-old PYT had fun with shimmery fringe in a JI OH Spring 2017 dress with white booties. But, I was most interested in her beautiful curls.

Yara Shahidi: I like that Yara introduced this zesty lime-green hue into her 3.1 Phillip Lim ensemble with the on-trend, navy paper-bag waist trousers.

Elaine Welteroth: Also channeling the retro flair of white boots, Elaine put a funky twist on the pink primness of her Proenza Schouler Spring 2018 wrap dress which Ana de Armas previously has worn. As with Storm, I was more focused on her hair, which made the look more striking as a result.

Gucci @ 2017 LACMA Art + Film Gala

As the 2017 LACMA Art + Film Gala in LA on Saturday (November 4) was presented by Gucci, there were quite a number of Gucci looks in attendance from the label’s devoted darlings.

Dakota Johnson: You might recognize this Gucci Spring 2018 embellished, plisse gown from the Red Carpet Wish List for Mandy Moore. Yet, its languid, boudoir glamour was actually in keeping with Dakota’s style, too. I know some may qualify the swoop of her hairstyle as a bit mature, and I wouldn’t disagree. However, I did like the drama brought forth from her long earrings and oxblood lip.

Zoe Saldana: I think Zoe may be the only one who could wear this Gucci gown and not make me want to immediately rip off the giant pink rose corsages from the flamenco, caped shoulders.

‘Woodshock’ LA Premiere

The ‘Woodshock’ premiere on Monday (September 18) in LA was a fantastical affair with attendees supporting designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s directorial debut in Rodarte.

Tessa Thompson: A frequent wearer of Rodarte, the actress-musician stayed true to form in a Rodarte Fall 2017 lace dress. The whimsical factor was enhanced with Yael Sonia jewels and Charlotte Olympia ‘Wild At Heart’ platform sandals. The finishing touch was a crown of blue flowers nestled in her updo.

Kirsten Dunst: Naturally, the longtime Rodarte devotee and ‘Woodshock’ star, donned Rodarte for the premiere. Some might have issues with the sheer dress from Spring 2018, but I find the diaphanous fabric helps tame the sweetness of the ruffles and sparkles. I also love the way Kirsten nodded to the runway version with a floral sprig in her blonde waves. Forevermark jewels completed her look.

Rowan Blanchard: Finishing the Rodarte trifecta, the young actress wore a shimmering Fall 2017 dress. If I had to nitpick, I find that the Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Gwyneth’ sandals distract slightly from the shimmering dress because of the black, whereas the coordinating clutch was more successful. Still, it was another successful look for the Rodarte fan.

Rowan Blanchard In Proenza Schouler – Women Making History Awards

In addition to Zendaya Coleman and Kerry Washington, Rowan Blanchard also joined the power-femmes at the Women Making History Awards on Saturday (September 16) in Beverly Hills, California.

With a directional Proenza Schouler look that was perfectly aligned with her chic yet adventurous style, Rowan managed to make even these wide-leg, big-pocket, pink pants work to her favour.

The off-the-shoulder, ruffle top and prim shoulder bag added a sense of sweet charm that was amplified by her rose-hued lip.

Miu Miu Women’s Tales Venice Film Festival Photocall

The ‘Miu Miu Women’s Tales’ photocall was held during the Venice Film Festival last week on Thursday (August 31), with a crush of starlets in attendance—all dressed in Miu Miu, naturally.

Rowan Blanchard: Perfectly colour-coordinated, Rowan had me at hello in this vibrant floral frock that was dazzling and darling with its delicious palette. I love how she echoed the embellished collar with her silver-accented pumps.

Kate Bosworth: Strewn with signature Miu Miu magpie-worthy embellishment, this feather-sleeve frock was right in line with Kate’s style especially with her tight topknot. I do think the dress might have been better served with a lighter shoe, as the black heels weighed it down a bit.

Chloe Sevingy: Chloe’s Miu Miu streak in Venice continued here, with this little blue mini that scintillated with crystallized accents. She styled the look with another pair of kitten heels along with the drawstring bag, I love the fresh mood she’s been putting forth lately, with her coral lip adding a delightful finish.

Chanel Dinner Celebrating Lucia Pica & The Travel Diary Makeup Collection

Chanel-clad beauties came out for the Chanel dinner celebrating the brand’s global creative makeup and color designer Lucia Pica and the new Travel Diary Makeup Collection in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday (July 12).

Rowan Blanchard: There would be no question that the young starlet set out to have some fun with her youthful Chanel Fall 2017 outfit featuring a ‘Gabrielle Chanel’ tee and high-waist navy pinstripe trousers paired with bold-red Chanel toe-cap booties. Chanel’s ‘Gabrielle’ bag, Chanel Fine Jewelry ‘Coco Crush’ earrings, and the Chanel ‘Boy.Friend’ watch rounded her creatively inspired look. But none was more creative than the liberties taken with her Crayola-inspired, multi-colour eye shadow hues.

Yara Shahidi: While Yara often favours long-sleeve long dresses, she brought that same aesthetic to this Chanel Fall 2017 ruffle blouse and faded, boyfriend denim that she imbued with her signature cool flair. I love the cheekiness of the double Cs washed into the ’90s-inspired jeans as well as the polish of Yara’s styling including the Chanel booties, a Chanel bag, and Chanel Fine Jewelry ‘Coco Crush’ ear cuff and rings.

Sarah Staudinger: Also in Chanel, naturally, Sarah wore pastel separates mixed with a bubblegum-pink bag and granny-chic shoes—not to mention oversized hoop earrings. I’m not exactly sure what she was going for, but I couldn’t find much rhyme or reason to her quirky entrance.
