Variety’s Power Of Women

Variety’s Power Of Women event brought together philanthropic femmes for an exclusive luncheon in Beverly Hills, California on Friday (October 13).

Octavia Spencer: Celebrated at the event for her work with City Year, Octavia gave her favoured designer Tadashi Shoji the afternoon off, instead donning a custom-made Laura Basci ensemble. I love how she brought a touch of the wild to the business-chic side of the dress with her leopard accessories.

Ashley Tisdale: With a fun and flirty outlook, Ashley wore a CMEO Collective number, to which the black pumps didn’t exactly reflect the youthful vibe. I would have probably skipped the diamond chokers, too.

Nikki Reed: The new mom kept her frilly, feminine look as meaningful as possible by wearing an eco-friendly dress by Amur. An Edie Parker clutch, John Hardy jewels, and Rupert Sanderson shoes rounded out the look.

Kyra Sedgwick In Akris – ‘Story of a Girl’ New York Screening & The View

Kyra Sedgwick was at the ‘Story of a Girl’ New York screening on Tuesday (July 17) before continuing her promotional efforts on ‘The View’ the next day, Wednesday (July 18).

‘Story of a Girl’ Screening: While she didn’t hop on the summer velvet bandwagon, Kyra did wear fall-ready suede in this Akris navy jumpsuit. But, it still maintained a lighter edge with the sleeveless silhouette and simple, clean lines.

‘The View’: With another Akris look, she fully embraced summer this time out in a silk-printed sun dress that was everything it should have been on her—feminine, flirty, and vibrant. I can also appreciate that she didn’t play it safe with her shoes, instead echoing the cherry-red print with her sandals.

AnnaSophia Robb In Akris – Bergdorf Goodman x Akris x Howard Greenberg Gallery

AnnaSophia Robb was on hand to help Akris celebrate photographer Vivian Maier, at an event held at Bergdorf Goodman in New York on Monday (May 15).

Akris – which is Charlene, Princess of Monaco’s favourite brand – outfitted the young actress in a Pre-Fall 2017 suit for the occasion.

I love how the linen herringbone material lends a sharp modern contrast to the sharply tailored suit.

Sleek accessories included Vale jewelry and a Little Liffner ‘Tiny D Box’ bag.

AnnaSophia’s current style indicates that she’s evolving down a very grown up and sophisticated path, which is why she continues to be our one to watch.

Freida Pinto In Roland Mouret & Akris – ‘Guerrilla’ Promo Tour

Freida Pinto has made a couple of New York City appearances lately for her ‘Guerrilla’ promo tour, first at the Variety Studio: Actors on Actors on Sunday (April 2) before heading to the Build Series Presents ‘Guerrilla’ on Monday (April 3).

Variety Studio: Actors on Actors: The rich interplay of hue and texture in this Roland Mouret Spring 2017 top and skirt was lovely on the actress, with the top showcasing a play on the designer’s signature folded structure. Kate Spade New York ‘Libby’ heels with crystal polka dots played into the textural motif, adding a note of sparkling levity.

Build Series Presents: ‘Guerrilla’: I loved the bold attitude of this Akris Spring 2017 striped dress toughened up by Loeffler Randall ‘Maryl’ ankle boots. The baggier fit I didn’t love as much, but Freida did wear it as it was originally meant with the looser silhouette.

Ashley Greene In Akris – ‘In Dubious Battle’ LA Premiere

Ashley Greene was at the premiere of ‘In Dubious Battle’ on Wednesday (February 15) in LA.

Putting a minimalist sensibility to work for her, she wore an Akris Spring 2017 long shift dress.

The linear drape was only heightened by the geometric, dark-green panel that spanned the length of the design.

With a shortened hem and a pulled-back ponytail, this look would have been even sleeker as a result.

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.

You can buy Gabrielle’s Akris Stretch Wool Sheer Hem Gown from Nordstrom.
