Hammer Museum Gala In The Garden

The Hammer Museum Gala in the Garden was hosted on Saturday (October 14) in LA, with a crush of beauties in attendance—and all outfitted in one of the night’s leading supporters, Bottega Veneta.

Emmy Rossum: Looking nearly impossibly elegant, Emmy stunned in a Fall 2017 gown that beautifully shimmered with its gunmetal metallic plisse design. I love how her red lip and refined waves imbued another element of classic allure to the striking look.

Priyanka Chopra: I liked the softer palette of this Bottega Veneta Spring 2018 ensemble, but the creamy-white pumps let the look down.

Sarah Jessica Parker: This Resort 2018 gown was a rather subdued look for the likes of SJP.

Tessa Thompson In Galvan – ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Premiere After Party

After a stunning, BDOTW red-carpet entrance at the ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ premiere, Tessa Thompson kept the glamour alive and well at the after party on Tuesday (October 10) in LA, where she was mixing and mingling with Chris Hemsworth.

This Galvan Spring 2017 gown was like liquid gold, and I loved this softer side of the metallic.

This type of satiny fabric is not always the easiest to pull off, but Tessa kept the sleekly minimal theme at the forefront.

A light sprinkling of John Hardy jewels finished off the look with a subtle edge.

That said, I’m still captivated by her first look of the evening.

Tessa Thompson In Schiaparelli Couture – ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ LA Premiere

Looking at Diane Kruger and Tessa Thompson, it’s safe to say the glamour famine is over.

Praise the lord hallelujah.

Tessa was breath-taking at the world premiere of Marvel Studios’ ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ on Tuesday (October 10) in Hollywood, California, wearing Schiaparelli Fall 2017 Couture.

We all know her for her more fashion-forward looks of the Rodarte variety, but she opted for simple elegance for her blockbuster night, allowing all of the drama to fall on the billowing skirt.

The marigold hue was divine against her skin tone with retro waves and Graziela Gems completing her BDOTW worthy look.

I hope she takes the reigns during this promo tour. I want to see more from her.

‘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.

Post Emmys Parties

Following the big show, came the Emmy’s after parties hosted by HBO and FOX which saw a few celebrities change into second looks.

Julianne Hough: When it comes to after-parties, the idea is to switch into something more comfortable to get your groove on without the fear of someone stepping on the train you’ve been carrying around during the awards ceremony, but Julianne has different idea. She used the occasion to dress up again, wearing a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2018 gown with a train longer than her Marchesa gown. I love the ethereal nature of the gown, but I really dislike the clutch here and I feel like she’s a tad overdressed for the occasion.

Sarah Hyland: When I look at Sarah in this Vatanika Spring 2018 LBD, I’m like, “yes, she gets it. She came to party”.

Tessa Thompson In Rosie Assoulin – 2017 Emmy Awards

The red carpet is just ramping up at the 2017 Emmy Awards, but Tessa Thompson took my breath away upon her arrival at the Microsoft Theatre on Sunday (September 17) in LA.

The actress may star in ‘Westworld’ but she might as well have been in the land of Oz, with her somewhere-over-the-rainbow lurex gown that brought a sophisticated sense of fun to the evening.

This Rosie Assoulin Resort 2018 plisse, cutout design was enchanting, not only in its bold kaleidoscope of tasteful rainbow hues but also in the way it billowed about her.

You could say that the edginess of her John Hardy jewels were the pot of gold to finish the look, with her sleek bob elevating the dramatic effect.

Giuseppe Zanotti sandals completed her look.
