Schiaparelli Spring 2017 Couture Front Row

There was no shortage of starlets wearing their Schiaparelli best and seated front row at the brands Haute Couture Spring 2017 show during Paris Fashion Week on Monday (January 23).

Thandie Newton: With a large dose of va-va-voom, the actress wore her heart on her dress in an asymmetrical black number with a sultry slit up the leg. The sculptural red jacket that adorned her shoulders added even more sass to the ensemble.

Olga Kurylenko: Her appearance at the Schiaparelli show saw the actress wearing a completely different jumpsuit look from the one debuted at the Christian Dior show. Here, the sportier element disappeared to be replaced by a fluid silhouette and a power print. Like Thandie, she too wore a jacket over her shoulders for an additional edge.

Thandie Newton In Monse – BAFTA Tea Party & Golden Globe Awards

Thandie Newton also attended both the BAFTA Tea Party and the Golden Globe Awards in California on January 7 and January 8, respectively, where she debuted two looks from up-and-coming New York designer, Monse.

BAFTA Tea Party: I have to say it took me a little while to take in just where this polka-dot dress started and ended with its asymmetrical necklines, slits, and ties. The verdict? I like bits and pieces of it from various angles, but with the simple accessories I think she made it work.

Golden Globe Awards: The actress is quoted to have said that her Monse gown reminded her of a lit cigarette. There’s no doubt the white off-the-shoulder dress is on fire with the copper sequined flames crawling up the hem, which she accessorized with a diamond reverse necklace

Variety’s Power Of Women Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

Variety's Power Of Women Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

There were plenty more ladies who attended Variety’s Power Of Women Luncheon at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Friday (October 9) in Beverly Hills, California.

Thandie Newton: I love this bold, colourful choice by the British actress who paired her green and brown African-print blouse with a magenta silk skirt by Bestow Elan. It made such outstanding impact.

Reese Witherspoon: Going down an expected route, the actress wore a pretty Balenciaga frock with Christian Louboutin ‘Benedetta’ sandals which couldn’t have been more appropriate for a luncheon.

Salma Hayek: After a few appearance which I didn’t favour, sexy Salma was back. This sultry Bottega Veneta sheath does wonders for her curves. I love the colour combo here.

Thandie Newton In Monique Lhuillier – ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ LA Premiere

Thandie Newton In Monique Lhuillier -  ‘Mad Max Fury Road’ LA Premiere

Thandie Newton attended the premiere of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ at TCL Chinese Theatre on Thursday (May 7) in Hollywood, California.

The British actress wore a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 dress with a slate grey liquid satin draped bodice and ombre layered tulle tea-length skirt.

While I kinda like the dress, it feels so wrong for Thandie. This is an action movie premiere, not an 80s themed prom.

I prefer Thandie in sleek designs over this frou frou over-the-topness. Plus the style is a bit grand for someone who doesn’t appear in the movie.

The make matters worse the clutch looks a bit cheap.

2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet Roundup

Vanity Fair Party

Here is an quick roundup from the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, which took place on Sunday (February 22).

Jane Fonda: The actress shows us that Zuhair Murad doesn’t always spell tacky. This Spring 2015 Couture jumpsuit is divine and she is working it like no other. Kudos to her. Jimmy Choo ‘Creole’ pumps and a Rauwolf clutch accessorized her look.

Regina King: This Nicolas Jebran gown won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I love the artful colours on this design. I don’t, however, like the illusion neckline. Not close enough to her skin tone.

Leslie Mann: Like Naomi Watts, Leslie went the white suiting route, layering up with a selection of gold Neil Lane jewels the look probably didn’t really require so much of.

Thandie Newton In Chanel – ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ World Premiere

Thandie Newton In Chanel - 'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' World Premiere

Thandie Newton attended the Royal Film Performance and world premiere of ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ held at the Odeon Leicester Square on Tuesday (February 17) in London, England.

It’s rare for me to develop goosebumps upon sight of a black and white dress, but that is exactly what happened in this case.

On a scale of one to ten, the never-ageing beauty that is Thandie Newton scored a perfect ten in looking breathtaking in this Chanel strapless velvet gown.

Usually I prefer a clean neckline with a strapless gown, but her ‘Panache and Pearl’ Chanel Fine Jewellery necklace only serves to enhance the sophistication and glamorous nature of this look.

This could’ve come off as boring and dated, but Thandie made the look the perfect jewel that it is.

Judges, what are your scores?
