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.

2017 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party

In advance of the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday, Entertainment Weekly hosted its Pre-Emmy Party on Friday (September 15) in West Hollywood, California.

Sophia Bush: This red Stella McCartney body-skimming dress with car wash slits held potential, but I wish the styling had been more complementary. A tonal red sandal like the Edie Parker clutch would have provided a more streamlined effect but I would have stopped the red at the makeup—red eye shadow is always a tough look to pull off.

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host also went bold with the eye shadow, hers an intense shade of violet. However, her sultry Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2018 floral-embroidered dress commanded enough attention on its own. I love that she didn’t resort to black pumps, but I’m wishing for a sandal here.

Mandy Moore
: With a shiny new play on an LBD, the ‘This Is Us’ actress donned a Sally LaPointe Pre-Fall 2017 sequin dress styled with Sophia Webster shoes and a red Jimmy Choo clutch. The style-forward edge of the turtleneck sweater piece grew on me, although at first, I did want to remove it.

Gigi Hadid’s NYFW Street Style

Much like Doutzen Kroes, model Gigi Hadid has also been out and about in New York City amidst the hustle and bustle of New York Fashion Week.

When she hasn’t been walking the runways the likes of Anna Sui, Prabal Gurung, and Jeremy Scott, she’s been spotted flaunting her own unique off-duty style.

First up, she donned a Tamuna Ingorokva Fall 2016 jumpsuit styled with Linda Farrow X Dries Van Noten sunglasses, Sanayi313 star-studded shoes, and one of her favoured Stalvey bags. This look reminded me of Doutzen’s The Row ensemble, as it may have been neutral in colour and simple in silhouette, but Gigi’s punchy styling kept it on the cool side—and far away from lacklustre territory.

While you might first notice the fringed Prada T-shirt and Paige Hoxton tight leather pants, there’s no doubt your gaze will quickly revert to the platform sneakers that could have easily been found in Lady Gaga’s closet. The same Linda Farrow X Dries Van Noten shades completed this ensemble that would have looked just as good with those Sanayi313 starry mules.

Introducing a bit of colour to the equation, Gigi brightened up her outlook in a bubblegum-pink 3.1 Phillip Lim sweater styled with a pair of girly embellished, cropped denim and Christian Louboutin ‘Boudiva’ glitter and velvet block heel mules. While the furry footwear may raise an eyebrow or two, I love how they reflected the playful personality that was packed into this look.

Who’s That Girl? Larsen Thompson

Making waves with her board-straight, auburn locks and dancing her way into the style spotlight, Larsen Thompson has emerged on the scene with a sense of trend-forward appeal and a uniquely individualistic look—while single-handedly making her signature freckles her best fashion accessory.

The young dancer, actress, and model, who made a cameo in Katy Perry’s ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ music video, has been spotted recently at a variety of events.

Maybelline’s Los Angeles Influencer Launch Event: On Thursday (August 10), Larsen wore a 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2017 ensemble that completely reinterpreted drawstring and denim. I love the crisp-white flair of the top in partnership with the bold, blue focal point of the skirt. The one thing I would have changed is her shoes, as the nude heels were a mere afterthought.

BeautyCon LA x Revlon Event: It could be the particularly pretty lighting, but this shimmery, sun-sparked look over the weekend at BeautyCon LA is one of my current favourites for the starlet. I love the intrinsic femininity that this Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2017 dress possesses with its cold-shoulder detailing and flared hem. And, her hair is dazzling with the emerald green tones.

BeautyCon LA: Rounding out the BeautyCon weekend on Saturday (August 12), Larsen completely changed style direction in an Alessandra Rich Fall 2017 ruffled, double-breasted jacket dress. She made no apologies for its retro styling, especially since she wore the ever-popular Stuart Weitzman ‘Clinger’ booties with it. However, I gravitate towards wishing for a sleeker sandal and an updo so as not to compete with the dress.

Yara Shahidi In 3.1 Phillip Lim – 5th Annual Beautycon Festival

Prior to the 2017 Teen Choice Awards, Yara Shahidi joined her on-screen mum Tracee Ellis Ross for the Beautycon Festival on Saturday (August 12) in LA.

Romantic flourishes were evident in 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Fall 2017 collection, and abound on this slim-fitting lace top, but styled with Mother flared jeans and rainbow bright Schutz ‘Tammi’ sandals, Yara gives the look a whole new relaxed feel.

Honestly, I don’t think I would like this on anyone else, but Yara somehow sells it to me, even if my first thought was that the hairstyle was a bit aging.

Aubrey Plaza in Topshop & 3.1 Phillip Lim – Comic Con 2017

Aubrey Plaza has also been in the mix at Comic-Con 2017, where she attended the Entertainment Weekly and FX After Dark event on Thursday (July 20) before swinging by the ‘Legion’ screening and Q&A on Friday (July 21).

Entertainment Weekly and FX After Dark: Going for a sweetly casual look, she wore a flirty Topshop floral-print romper that had its charm. But I cannot say that the white Tod’s shoes would have been my first pick.

‘Legion’ Screening: As for her second look, the Tod’s shoes again were a bit befuddling as the orange hue was a strange contrast with her playfully chic 3.1 Phillip Lim ensemble. I think it would have been far better served with a complementary sandal for a more streamlined approach. But, you cannot fault her for having some fun.
