Pre-Grammys Weekend Roundup

This pre-Grammys weekend roundup left us with a motley collection of entrances in New York City that all appeared to be reading the same WDOTW memo.

Hailey Baldwin: Hailey joined another Hailee (Baldwin) at the Republic Records pre-Grammys event on Friday (January 26). However, they couldn’t have been dressed more unlike each other, as this pink Off-White Spring 2018 ensemble showed designer Virgil Abloh’s luxury streetwear vibe—done with a bubblegum ’80s twist. Jennifer Fisher jewels rounded out the directional look.

Priyanka Chopra:
With a rare misstep at the GRAMMY Salute to Industry Icons Honoring Jay-Z on Saturday (January 27), Priyanka lost me completely with this Ester Abner Spring 2018 outfit that suffered not only in fit but also in execution. All I was left with was an ill-conceived, messy bathrobe-boudoir vibe.

Julia Michaels: Also at the GRAMMY Salute event, Julia fared only marginally better in this Yanina Fall 2017 Couture frock. Exposed shoulder pads, blinding-white cuffs, and an unusual take on lining left a lot to be desired in the execution department.

‘Le Bal Surrealiste’ Dior

The Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture show featured an imaginative surrealist mood, and I can only imagine that continued in force at Le Bal Surrealiste Dior that was hosted afterwards on Monday (January 22) during Paris Fashion Week with Dior’s constant fans dressed to impress in the label.

Bella Hadid: Black has been Bella’s Paris Fashion Week colour, and this sheer frock continued that trend whilst working right in line with Bella’s provocative style. I like the romantic, off-the-shoulder silhouetted and embellishment, which I feel brings a bit more composure to the see-through look. A ‘Lady Dior’ quilted bag and Dior shoes completed the picture, with a sculptural hairstyle to play to the party theme.

Gemma Arterton: Gemma balanced her sleek ’do and power red lip with the girlish sophistication of this sparkling, tea-length dress that was ladylike in silhouette yet dazzling in sequin embellishment.

Annabelle Wallis: It looks as if the fashion house’s logo briefs are back in action with this sheer corset gown. I was grateful for the chic moto jacket to bring some edge to the sultry, borrowed-from-the-boudoir look.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture

A couple of days after the Dior Homme show, more Dior-clad darlings descended on the Rodin Museum for the fashion house’s runway show, the first big one of Paris haute couture week on Monday (January 22).

Emily Blunt: Sleekly elegant styling was the only way to go for this ornately printed Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2018 frock, and Emily complied.

Annabelle Wallis: Statement shirts continue to be a relevant trend, and Annabelle’s fit the bill. I like how she styled it with the graphic jacket (which coincidentally reflected the show’s checquerboard set), high-waist, cropped trousers, and hat for a slice of Parisian rebel-chic.

Willow Smith: Perhaps taking a cue from the surrealist mood of the show in her white eye makeup, Willow offered a more girly perspective than we would expect from her urban-cool style in this sheer tulle gown juxtaposed with a tuxedo vest.

The Fashion Awards 2017 Red Carpet Roundup

The long list of stars continued in full force at The Fashion Awards 2017 on Monday (December 4) in London.

Kaia Geber: I loved seeing the young model have some fun with the flirty nature of ruffles in this Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 two-piece, cold-shoulder look. It was style-forward, chic, and sweet at the same time. Messika jewels completed her look.

Adwoa Aboah: There was no sequin left unturned in this Halpern Spring 2018 sequin number, but it was the platform footwear that compromised its fresh potential.

Jourdan Dunn: The sultry seduction of the Versace label was fully celebrated in this orange gown. But I most loved the model’s gorgeous beauty look.

Winnie Harlow In Christian Dior – T.J. Martell 42nd Annual New York Honors Gala

I was immediately celebrating Winnie Harlow upon her arrival at the T.J. Martell 42nd Annual New York Honors Gala on Tuesday (October 17) in New York City.

Despite the sheer elements of this Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2017 gown, it possessed a distinct elegance due to the decorative, golden embroidery.

Plus, I’m sure many of us will be breathing a sigh of relief to not see the visible logo briefs underneath this particular dress.

I loved the simple sultriness of her styling, too, which included a smoky eye and long, straight locks.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Spring 2018

As could be expected, the Christian Dior Spring 2018 fashion show brought together a number of beautiful femmes to celebrate the new collection during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 26).

Natalia Vodianova: While we’ve seen the signature ‘ChristianDior’ straps on dresses before, I loved the beaded variation employed on this Dior orange feather dress that delivered the best of both worlds between whimsy and elegance. Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Janice’ black suede corset booties and a black velvet ‘Le Coeur de Dior’ bag rounded out the look with an edgy-Victorian, fall spirit.

Emily Ratajkowski: Opting to not wear Dior, Emily donned a Brock Collection Resort 2018 dress that walked the line between romantic softness and seduction with its corsetry bodice and thigh-high slit. The look was styled with Altuzarra D’Orsay canvas pumps.

Alexa Chung: The writing was on the walls—or the sweater and skirt—with this Christian Dior ‘Lascaux’ print ensemble that was inspired by the Paleolithic cave paintings in Lascaux, France. She also wore Dior black booties and a black glazed calfskin ‘C’est Dior’ flap bag to complete the artsy, casually sophisticated statement.

Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

The list of lovelies at Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’ on Friday (September 8) in New York City was seemingly unending, as a number of stars joined Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, and Kim Kardashian.

Gigi Hadid: Her hyper-embellished Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2017 ensemble, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, was so intricate and powerful of a statement that it really didn’t require the rhinestone clogs.

Kaia Gerber: Cindy Crawford’s model daughter was all grown up in a slinky Kristian Aadnevik Fall 2017 mini that had her looking like her mom more and more.

Kendall Jenner: There was little left to the imagination in this Dolce & Gabbana ruched, sheer number. Yet, ironically in spite of the see-through, I couldn’t help but still get a certain sophisticated, glam vibe with the look, which I will chalk up to its silhouette along with Kendall’s Old-Hollywood waves, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and Jimmy Choo sandals.
