Gucci @ 2017 LACMA Art + Film Gala

As the 2017 LACMA Art + Film Gala in LA on Saturday (November 4) was presented by Gucci, there were quite a number of Gucci looks in attendance from the label’s devoted darlings.

Dakota Johnson: You might recognize this Gucci Spring 2018 embellished, plisse gown from the Red Carpet Wish List for Mandy Moore. Yet, its languid, boudoir glamour was actually in keeping with Dakota’s style, too. I know some may qualify the swoop of her hairstyle as a bit mature, and I wouldn’t disagree. However, I did like the drama brought forth from her long earrings and oxblood lip.

Zoe Saldana: I think Zoe may be the only one who could wear this Gucci gown and not make me want to immediately rip off the giant pink rose corsages from the flamenco, caped shoulders.

Zoe Saldana In Armani Privé – Green Carpet Fashion Awards

Over the weekend, Zoe Saldana enchanted at the inaugural Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Italia on Sunday (September 24) in Milan, Italy.

Paying homage to an Italian design house, she was a vision in lilac wearing a wispy confection from the Armani Privé Spring 2016 collection.

I love the whimsical romance of the cloud-like ruffles that floated weightless from top to toe.

This is a gown that needs no counterpart, so she kept the styling as pared down as possible with soft waves and complementary sandals completing the effortlessly beautiful statement.

Zoe Saldana In Valentino – Avant Garden Gala

With a bohemian-mod ode to garden-party style, Zoe Saldana had quite the apropos look for the ‘Avant Garden’ event on Saturday (July 29), hosted by Valentino in Santa Barbara, California.

The Valentino Fall 2017 collection took much inspiration from the Memphis Group movement, and that jazzy, pop-art influence was seen all over her colourful dress that featured a patchwork of hands, numerals, and other geometric objets.

Despite the quirk of the motifs, the design’s simple, loose silhouette maintained an easy elegance that kept the look on strong footing for such an outdoor soiree.

It was a nice change of pace from the expected garden florals blooming across a frock. Would you agree?

Zoe Saldana in Giambattista Valli – NALIP 2017 Latino Media Awards

Zoe Saldana was honoured with an award at the NALIP 2017 Latino Media Awards on Saturday (June 24) in Hollywood, California.

Ripe with glistening, embellished strawberries throughout, this Giambattista Valli Fall 2017 dress riffed on playful whimsicality—with a grown-up edge to the girly inclinations that rested most prominently in the big bow at the waist.

I’m sure all those with sheer fatigue can appreciate the proper lining of the lace-accented frock that really took nothing away from the original version.

A pink lip and loose curls completed the sultry-sweet look that didn’t take itself too seriously.

Zoe Saldana In Roland Mouret – The Navy Seal Foundation Benefit

Zoe Saldana attended the 2017 Los Angeles Evening of Tribute Benefiting the Navy SEAL Foundation on Thursday (June 1) in Beverly Hills, California.

You might be surprised to learn that her top and skirt hailed from the Fall 2017 collection of Roland Mouret, as we normally associate the designer with a more streamlined, precise silhouette with contoured, tailored pieces.

This is a dress meant to be in movement with the flowy, draped effect and the slit at the side. Seen static, the folds through the centre could be perceived a bit overbearing.

Rather than wear the runway’s blue shoe, she donned the Aquazzura ‘Wild Thing’ fringed suede sandal, bringing in the blue hue with her clutch. A sleek ponytail and red lip were the right finish to counterbalance the looser statement.
