Tessa Thompson In Ralph & Russo Couture, Alberta Ferretti & Rodarte – Pre-Oscars Events

Much like Danai Gurira, ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ star Tessa Thompson has been busy attending pre-Oscar events in LA.

2018 Essence Black Women In Hollywood Oscars Luncheon: Was this dazzling Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture dress a bit OTT for a luncheon? Some might say yes, but I would say no. Evoking flapper girls of the Jazz Age, the look serves up elegance rather than over the top pageantry. Piaget jewels and white Christian Louboutin pumps help ground the look.

Vanity Fair and Lancome Paris Toast Women in Hollywood: I loved the 80s nostalgia imbued within her gold lame Alberta Ferretti Fall 2018 look which stayed on the right side of retro. With gold Giuseppe Zanotti platforms continuing the retro vibe, the Adeam white bag felt very much out of place.

‘A Beautiful Future’ Campaign with Fem the Future: With her Rodarte black, fuschia and yellow ostrich feather coat taking centre stage, the actress opted for simple separates as not to overcook the look. Casadei boots plus a stylish Cult Gaia ‘Lilleth’ tote, defined by its sculptural approach to design, added a fashion forward edge.

Natalie Dormer In Alberta Ferretti – 2018 BAFTAs

Following the pre-party, Natalie Dormer graced the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18).

You’ll be surprised to learn that supplying so many black dresses for events like this and the Golden Globes is no mean feat, so Natalie turned to Alberta Ferretti to create a gown especially for the occasion.

The design is fairly simple, so I love how the look is elevated with a sheer chiffon train for a dramatic and timelessly glamorous finish.

I’m going back and forth on the tasseled earrings.

Should she have lost the earrings or worn her hair up?

Gemma Arterton In Alberta Ferretti Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Gemma Arterton was another beauty in black at the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England, alongside Saoirse Ronan, Rebecca Ferguson and Leslie Bibb.

The actress wore a dark Alberta Ferretti Spring 2018 Couture gown in solidarity with the Time’s Up movement.

She frequently wears black dresses on the red carpet and this subdued style demonstrates why.

There’s something captivating about the inky shade against her dark hair and pale complexion.

With the dynamic pleating, there is such wonderful movement in the gown, which shows off her figure in an alluringly elegant manner.

Gina shoes, a Jimmy Choo bag and Ara Vartanian jewels completed the graceful look.

Given the higher neckline and detailing, she could have lost one accessory or two.

Zoe Saldana In Alberta Ferretti Couture – ‘Campari Red Diaries’ Milan Premiere

On Monday (January 30) Campari, the iconic Italian aperitif, launched the 2018 Campari Red Diaries short movie – The Legend of Red Hand – with a red carpet premiere in Milan, Italy.

The short movie, starring actress Zoe Saldana, Italian actor Adriano Giannini and directed by Italian director Stefano Sollima, is a thrilling mystery story that takes viewers around the world in the pursuit of the perfect Campari cocktail.

Zoe was at her stupendous best wearing a Campari red Alberta Ferretti Spring 2017 Couture gown.

This sensual slip dress, cut on the bias for slinky movement, and enhanced with a cowl neckline, is understated glamour at its very best.

If you were to call this a BDOTY moment, I wouldn’t disagree.

Buccellati gold jewels and Stuart Weitzman sandals completed her look.
