Gabrielle Union In Akris – ‘Straight Outta Compton’ LA Premiere

Gabrielle Union In Akris -  ‘Straight Outta Compton’ LA Premiere

Gabrielle Union joined Teyonah Parris on the red carpet for the premiere of ‘Straight Outta Compton’ on Monday (August 10) in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress wore an Akris Fall 2015 tuxedo-style dress featuring sheer elements that lent a feminine polish to this uber sleek look.

I’m sure many will make instant comparison to Emma Stone’s Christian Dior Couture SAG Awards gown, but love how the sheer sleeves and back of Gabrielle’s look dialled down the formalness and amped up the sex appeal.

An Edie Parker clutch and flawless makeup completed this BDOTW worthy look.

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Akris - Official Presentation Of The Monaco Twins

On Wednesday (January 7) Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco attended an event for the official presentation of their twins, Prince Jacques, the Hereditary Prince of Monaco, and his sister, Princess Gabriella, in Monaco.

Opting for winter white, the princess wore an Akris cashmere coat and a jersey dress custom made by Albert Kriemler.

Both pieces are gorgeous on their own, but factor in the tawny suede boots and buttery leather gloves and this is an uber-chic lesson in luxe winter dressing.

The princess wore a look from her favourite designer, Akris, selecting a one-shoulder navy Fall 2014 gown with swirling black accents snaking around her body creating an ‘S’ shape; she styled the gown with dazzling Van Cleef and Arpels ‘Ocean’ drop earrings (a wedding gift from her husband) and black pumps.

Once again, the sheer skirt prevents me from considering this for BDOTW.

The chic moto jacket with a high-neck collar is a spectacular piece. She styled the look with Christian Louboutin lace-up open-toe booties and a selection of silver jewels including an on-trend ear cuff.
