Salma Hayek In Alexander McQueen – Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Exhibition Private View

Salma Hayek In Alexander McQueen - Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty Exhibition Private View

Salma Hayek attended the private view for the ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’ exhibition held at the Victoria & Albert Museum on Thursday (March 12) in London, England.

With all due respect, Salma and high fashion haven’t always been a successful pairing despite her first lady of fashion credentials, but on this occasion she looked breathtaking wearing an Alexander McQueen Fall 2008 lace embroidered tulle ‘Peacock’ dress.

Some might disagree, saying she’s too short to carry this look off and wishing for the likes of Erin O’Connor or someone equally as statuesque to wear this look, but when you consider Salma’s Golden Globes look with the OTT styling, this is much improved.

While I do love this look, I wish the hair was totally slicked back, but my feeling is that this style was created to mimic the volume of the skirt.

Boucheron jewels and a McQueen clutch accessorized her look.

Was this look a success, or was this too much gown for the actress?

FKA twigs In Alexander McQueen – Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Exhibition Private View

FKA twigs  In Alexander McQueen - Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty Exhibition Private View

FKA twigs attended the private view for the ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’ exhibition held at the Victoria & Albert Museum on Thursday (March 12) in London, England, having recently worn a McQueen look to the 2015 Brit Awards.

The Alexander McQueen Spring 2008 collection is still one of my favourites, so I was ecstatic the musician selected one of the many vibrant pieces from said collection.

Looking like she’s about to take flight, I love how the feather embroidery enhances the butterfly-print chiffon gown.

It’s a hard look to pull off with the fear of getting lost in all that detail, but FKA twigs more than holds her own, simply styling the look with black Christian Louboutin ‘Echasse’ sandals and Shaun Leane jewels.

Naomie Harris attended the private view for the ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’ exhibition held at the Victoria & Albert Museum on Thursday (March 12) in London, England.

The British beauty wore a red Alexander McQueen Spring 2015 satin dress featuring split sleeves to amp up the dramatic nature of the look and create a modern, graceful silhouette.

One of Naomie’s best red carpet moments was in McQueen back in 2013, and this is another to consider adding to her hall of fame.

Styled with a McQueen hexagon clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, this couldn’t have been a more perfect look for Naomie as she oozes elegance.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – Commonwealth Service

Commonwealth Service At Westminster Abbey

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, carried out one of her final engagements before her due date, attending the annual Commonwealth Day Service held at Westminster Abbey on Monday (March 9) in London, England, where she was accompanied by Prince William.

Looking as lovely as ever, the Duchess wore a classic Alexander McQueen single-breasted coat that was given a 60s feel via the wide collar.
The pink theme was further extended to her Jane Taylor hat, Prada pumps and clutch, and Kiki McDonough earrings.

You won’t be surprised to learn that this is a repeat. Catherine first wore this Alexander McQueen coat back in 2013 at the Trooping the Colour ceremony, which was one of her final engagements before the birth of Prince George.

FKA twigs In Alexander McQueen - 2015 BRIT Awards

FKA twigs attended the 2015 BRIT Awards held at the O2 Arena on Wednesday (February 25) in London, England.

After a succession of fairly uneventful looks at this event, the British musician wore an Alexander McQueen Spring 2015 embellished dress over flared trousers.
The look is captivating for its de rigueur avant-garde appeal.

We – or at least I – don’t want to see big ball gowns at music award shows. These are the nights when risks should be taken and for that I love this unique look from head to toe.

2015 Oscars Couples

2015 Oscars plus ones

This post is dedicated to those gorgeous plus-ones on Oscar night, who should never be left in the shade.

Sophie Hunter: The pregnant wife of Benedict Cumberbatch looked breathtaking in her custom Lanvin red one-shoulder gown with brass beading. The vivid colour was only heighted when she stood alongside Benedict in his stark white tuxedo blazer. While oozing femininity, her gold Lanvin accessories and drop earrings helped made this quite a strong, powerful look. She’s slowly becoming my favourite plus-one. Sorry, Camila Alves.

Hannah Bagshawe: The British couple both wore navy Alexander McQueen. Eddie Redmayne wore a Bespoke navy tuxedo with black velvet slippers to collect his Best actor awards, while she wore a navy chiffon embroidered gown with embellished feather belt styled with a gold McQueen ‘Clutch Me’ clutch.
