Victoria Justice at the 144th Kentucky Derby

Mint-julep-spiked day parties and all the fashionable fascinators marked the 144th Kentucky Derby that was held this past weekend, and Victoria Justice was dressed to dazzle at two Derby events in Louisville, Kentucky.

Kentucky Derby Unbridled Eve Gala: On Friday (May 4), she kicked off her Derby run with this allover sequin Romona Keveza gown. Some may see bridal tinges here, but what I also saw was the simplicity of unabashed glamour, complete with old Hollywood waves and a classic red lip.

Kentucky Derby: The white theme continued the next day (May 5) at Churchill Downs with the relaxed crispness of this tailored set. Clearly, the Kate Spade New York ‘Wild One Horse Statement Earrings’ were meant to be the star of the show, even if they had a bit of competition with the literal feather in her cap. She could have definitely done without the studded bag, though, as the only thing that needed to be spiked were those mint juleps.

#REVOLVEfestival @ Coachella

Festival beauties were out in force at the #REVOLVEfestival held during Coachella on Sunday (April 15) in the California desert.

Nicole Scherzinger: She had all the festival fashion trends going on, what with the oversized denim, the cutoff shorts, the body chain, the braids, and the boots. But, both the bright bra and the Brian Atwood thigh-high peacock-print boots competed for attention in this throwback look.

Alessandra Ambrosio: We may always anticipate the supermodel to opt for ultra-sexy looks, but I loved seeing her channel her sweeter side in this polka-dot mini dress styled with a Coachella-worthy oversized, distressed denim jacket. The accessories, though, are what really made the ensemble a flirty-fun endeavor with her girl-next-door sneakers, geometric Garrett Leight ‘Jacqueline Sun’ shades along with The Kooples ‘Emily’ belt bag—clearly, the cool-girl way to wear a fanny pack.

Olivia Culpo: Also rocking a denim jacket, Olivia channeled a western-chic allure in this white lace Ermanno Scervino frock styled with a Louis Vuitton mini-backpack bag and a cowgirl hat. Every element made perfect sense for Coachella—except for the suede boots. It is the desert, after all.

The Art of Elysium presents John Legend’s HEAVEN Gala

As to be expected, there was a rush of stars at the 11th annual edition of The Art of Elysium Presents John Legend’s HEAVEN was held on Saturday (January 6) in Santa Monica, California.

Ashley Madekwe: I was a bit surprised to see Ashley donning the Rodarte Fall 2017 look that Nicole Kidman wore to the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. I will say the proportions of the glittery, ruffled look seemed a bit better suited to Ashley.

Rooney Mara: The actress looks to be continuing 2018 with her favoured colour palette of black and white with this Givenchy Spring 2018 lace-accented, asymmetrical dress.

Vanessa Hudgens: I like the enchanting sweep of this Alberta Ferretti Fall 2017 cape gown styled with an Emm Kuo clutch. What betrays the look a bit is the heavy-handed, rust-hued eye makeup, which is a bit too much in the red colour family.

Refinery29 29Rooms Los Angeles: Turn It Into Art Opening Night

The Refinery29 ’29Rooms Los Angeles: Turn It Into Art’ opening night party saw a host of lovely ladies in attendance on Wednesday (December 6) in California.

Gabrielle Union: The ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress wore a TOME Fall 2017 bomber jacket and corseted shirt, plus some check trousers. I’m usually a big fan of Gabrielle’s style, but I couldn’t get on board with this look. I think the shirt is really the chink in her armor here.

Margot Robbie: With those power shoulders, it’s quite clear that Margot was paying homage to the 80s in this sleek Saint Laurent Spring 2018 look which she styled with Pierre Hardy ‘Laser’ pumps.

Janelle Monae: Did Janelle’s invite say come as art? That can be the only explanation for this Kaimin leather dress and Nange Magro // Dead Lotus Couture latex headpiece. You gotta admire her for committing to the look if nothing else.

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.

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic was held on Saturday (October 14) in Pacific Palisades, California, with a number of stars in attendance for the day of sport.

Tracee Ellis Ross: This look brought a big smile to my face, as I was immediately charmed by the Agnes B printed top and mustard-yellow Celine trousers. The star of the show was the Eric Javits hat, though, with Stuart Weitzman ‘Marlon’ shoes completing the typically quirky look. The shoes were funky, to be sure, but it was the Louis Vuitton clutch that I could have done without.

Camilla Belle: This Adeam Resort 2018 asymmetrical frock offered up such a delicately feminine vibe, with her pink lip echoing that spirit. Her block heels ensured there would be no sinking into the grass.

Kate Hudson: I loved the playfulness of this candy-stripe Johanna Ortiz Resort 2018 wide-leg jumpsuit, all tied up with its girlish bow. But, I would have been fearful that Kate would trip on the pants that puddled on the ground. The giant rosebud earrings were such fun as was the Clare V. ‘Petite Alice’ tote.
