Swarovski’s Times Square Opening Celebration

Swarovski’s Times Square opening celebration on Thursday (April 12) brought out the beauties to watch an official ribbon cutting ceremony with brand ambassador, Karlie Kloss, followed by a Times Square-inspired celebration at Hudson Mercantile.

Karlie Kloss: The supermodel had a girly moment in a cotton candy pink Alex Perry dress. The pastel colour and frills were tempered by the low neckline and Saint Laurent blazer draped over her shoulders. Swarovski jewels added some sparkle.

Selita Ebanks: Embracing bold patterns, the Cayman beauty was clad in a Monse Spring 2018 suit. She opted to style it sans shirt with the sensual plunging neckline counteracting the menswear-inspired oversized check. Taking allowances for the oversized fit, it’s a shame the finish isn’t crisper as the pieces have a sagging effect, making them lose their tailored sharpness. Even just hemming the pants would have made such a difference.

Morena Baccarin: The ‘Gotham’ actress also embraced pattern with a Self-Portrait crochet pleated dress. The top has a mesmerizing intricate finish. It’s juxtaposed with the graphic print on the skirt. Some might find the combination disjointed. I think it could have succeeded but the too-long hem is literally bringing the ensemble down. It could also have done without the slit.

amfAR Los Angeles 2017

A crush of stars came out for amfAR Los Angeles 2017 on Friday (October 13) in Beverly Hills, California.

Heidi Klum: At this point, I’m always prepared to be disappointed with a Heidi look, but she actually stepped up to the plate in this Ralph & Russo Fall 2017 Couture gown that was a far more modern and sophisticated form of glittery glam for her.  The look was of course styled with Lorraine Schwartz  jewels.

Dita Von Teese: Designer Ulyana Sergeenko and Dita are a perfect match, as can be seen in this Demi-Couture gown that prizes the feminine form with its provocative bustier silhouette and seductive thigh slit.

Kate Hudson: Playing to her buzz cut, Kate kept it cool and mod in this David Koma Resort 2018 gown that scintillated with mirror-like embellishment.  A Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch completed her look.

2017 Oscar Parties Model Roundup


More models were also spotted at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party and Elton John’s AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (February 26). Here is a snapshot of looks they strutted out.

Karlie Kloss: While her Naeem Khan Fall 2017 gown stayed true to her minimalist red-carpet M.O., the sparkle of embellishment and a seductive thigh-high side slit brought it to life. She styled the look with a Roger Vivier Envelope Flowers clutch. I actually much preferred this look to her first.

Joan Smalls: I would argue that the enticing, dark sapphire hue and the precision-cut sharpness of this Brandon Maxwell Spring 2017 top and skirt didn’t need the multi-hued choker or the magenta eye makeup.

Jasmine Tookes: With a sexy spin on a classic, one-shoulder gown, the model wore a black Thai Nguyen Atelier Fall/Winter 2017 sheer gown dripping in fringed embellishment and styled with Stuart Weitzman ‘Goforth’ sandals.

Selita Ebanks In Ashi Studio - Style Africa Gala And Runway Show

Selita Ebanks attended the Style Africa Gala and Runway Show at California Market Center on Saturday (June 20) in Los Angeles, California.

The model, who was being honoured for her humanitarian efforts at the annual event, wore a white off- the -shoulder Ashi Studio gown.

As you would expect from any Ashi Studio piece there was an enticing element which took the form of a flowing cape detail.

Opting for minimal styling, Selita added a Monica Vinader rose-gold choker, Jason of Beverly Hills rings, and Christian Louboutin silver pumps.

Selita Ebanks attended the ‘Two Days, One Night’ (‘Deux Jours, Une Nuit’) premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 20) in Cannes, France.

The model was also gunning for gold, dressed in a Gabriela Cadena rose-gold gown with over 30,000 hand-sewn bugle beads.

That’s a lot of work, so thankfully Selita did justice to the look, styling her gleaming gown with complementary accessories including a Swarovski ‘Nirvana Star’ burgundy satin clutch and flawless makeup.
