Julie Bowen In Alberta Ferretti Couture – 2017 Emmy Awards

Julie Bowen was intent on proving that black could be anything but boring at the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday night (September 17).

Her dress wasn’t boring, but I must say it stood out for the wrong reasons. I want to support the Alberta Ferretti Spring 2017 Couture gown, but I cannot get behind the detailing.

I enjoy the swirling volume of the ruffles, but it’s the placement that kills it for me. Additionally, the light fabric against the heavy velvet enhances the disjointed finish.

Had the ruffles been in the same fabric or placed across the body, it might have been more successful. Or, it would have worked better if the belt remained. I could even see a bustle being a better option. Thoughts?

E!, ELLE & IMG’s NYFW Kickoff Party Red Carpet Roundup


In addition to Tracee Ellis Ross, Kate Bosworth, and Gabrielle Union, a number of other lovelies showed up to the E!, ELLE & IMG’s NYFW Kickoff Party—A Celebration of Personal Style—on Wednesday (September 6) in New York City.

Nadine Leopold: The pyjama effect was not lost on Nadine, as she wore the loungewear-as-outerwear trend in this Alberta Ferretti Resort 2018 foliage-patterned ensemble. The effect came across as polished, thanks to her sleek styling that included Jenny Bird earrings and pointy pumps.

Hailey Baldwin: We’ve seen a few interpretations of boxy, mannish inspiration take hold in womenswear on the red carpet, and Hailey’s Toga Fall 2017 plaid suiting can be added to the list. But, leave it to Hailey to bring sexy appeal to the boxy look with her powder-blue Lonely ‘Lulu’ underwire bra. Even so, the brightness of her white pumps kept my gaze directed downwards; they were such an odd choice of footwear.

Olivia Culpo: The epidemic of the blinding white pumps continued in Olivia’s look, whereby they shouldn’t have appeared anywhere near this Carmen March Fall 2017 frilly polka-dot dress. Ankles up, it was such a fun, flirty look, so it’s a shame about the shoes.

Venice Film Festival Red Carpet Roundup

More stars took to the red carpet on Monday (September 4), as the Venice Film Festival marched on.

Levante: This embellished Alberta Ferretti Fall 2017 gown was originally shown with a full lining, leaving many of you—and myself included—likely to wonder why Levante opted to go sheer instead at the ‘Una Famiglia’ premiere.

Micaela Ramazzotti: The magpie-attracting embellishment of Prada was not lost on this glittery look that Micaela wore at the ‘Una Famiglia’ premiere, but she did lose me at the unnecessary cuff and the gigantic platform shoes.

Bruna Marquezine In Alberta Ferretti – Venice Film Festival

It’s a tale of two red carpet stories when it comes Bruna Marquezine’s appearance during Venice Film Festival this weekend.

‘Suburbicon’ Premiere: Joining Amal Clooney, the Brazilian actress graced the red carpet wearing a pretty pink Alberta Ferretti gown with an elegant flowing cape and train which most will love until perhaps they see how sheer the dress is.

The Leisure Seeker (Ella & John) Premiere: Opting for her second Alberta Ferretti gown in so many days, Bruna went from sweet to not-so-innocent. I have to confess that I love the look, mostly because of the glamour the feathers brings to the look; without them, I would’ve probably been rolling my eyes with the majority of you. Chopard jewels completed her look.

The Franca Sozzani Award

Many more celebrities paid tribute to Franca Sozzani at a ceremony held on a windy night during Venice Film Festival, from which Julianne Moore collected an award.

Karolina Kurkova: While I adore the model when she presents a more fashion forward aesthetic, this Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini pretty pink ruffle gown is as romantic as it is heavenly.

Isabeli Fontana: The model has proved to be quite the muse for Alberta Ferretti, wearing her 4th frock of this festival. While the elements weren’t too kind to her split front magenta gown, she carried herself with great dignity. I’m drawn to both the colour and construction of this stunning gown.

Jane Fonda In Alberta Ferretti & Marchesa – ‘Our Souls At Night’ Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Jane Fonda is often at Cannes representing L’Oreal, but today (September 1) she was at Venice Film Festival to promote her film, ‘Our Souls At Night’.

Photocall: I love how Jane’s Alberta Ferretti Pre-Fall 2017 jumpsuit blends unbridled glamour with military-inspired traits. Styled with Pomellatto jewels, Christian Louboutin shoes and a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch, this woman can seriously do no wrong.

Premiere: I know some of you can’t understand my love for Marchesa, but this dusty blue tulle gown featuring all over 3D floral embroidery plus feathers, is a classic example of why the love is strong. This is a simply stunning creation made for a movie star. I don’t think she’s ever looked more radiant. The look was styled with a Rene Caovilla clutch and Pomellatto jewels. The icing on this cake is picture of Jane and her Armani-clad co-star Robert Redford, as they are shining examples of how to grow old gracefully.
