Bee Shaffer In Alexander McQueen & Anna Wintour In Maison Margiela – 2017 Tony Awards

The 2017 Tony Awards took place on Sunday (June 11) in New York City, and everybody’s favourite mother and daughter duo were in attendance. Bee Shaffer and Anna Wintour both stunned in their respective gowns.

Bee Shaffer: Taken from the Fall 2017 Alexander McQueen Collection Bee’s dress is a riot of colour and texture. The hanging ribbons resemble tassels and give the look a grounded, effortless feel. The patchwork design feels traditional and highlights the incredible workmanship that went into the gown. I love Bee’s Irene Neuwirth jewels which mirror the cascading tassels and ribbons. The red lip and updo is the polished element this look needs to finish it perfectly.

Anna Wintour: There are some who may feel this look is a bit dated, but I love it. Classic and elegant, fashion’s matriarch wears an Anna’s Maison Margiela Spring 2017 Couture gown. Whilst the runway styling is more exciting and shows this dress to its full potential, next to Bee in her busy dress Anna looks perfectly poised. Some gold jewellery and the addition of the original runway waist-tie could have helped to finish this look.

Eva Green In Stella McCartney & Alexander McQueen – ‘Based On A True Story’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Eva Green promoted her upcoming film, ‘Based On A True Story’ during Cannes Film Festival yesterday (May 27) opting for two British brands.

Photocall: Her Stella McCartney’s jumpsuit epitomizes modern sophistication. The look was made infinitely more interesting with red lip and onyx jewels.

Premiere: By nightfall, the look had turned more dramatic in Alexander McQueen. I love how the silver sequin ‘shipwreck’ embroidery black tulle Spring 2017 dress feels like it has its own story to tell. That’s always been the mystic, magic and allure of Eva. She tends to select artful red carpet looks.

Diane Kruger In Alexander McQueen- 2017 amfAR Gala Cannes

Diane Kruger channeled a dark, creative mood at the amfAR Gala during the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 25).

We can generally expect Diane to dance with edgier, less expected looks, and she stayed true to form here in this Alexander McQueen Fall 2017 ensemble with Chopard jewels.

With its array of metallic embroidery and dripping in fringe, the look was certainly ready for a boho bewitching hour.

But, unlike her prior whimsical gown, I found the whimsy in this entrance to be heavier than I’d prefer for the likes of Cannes.

What do you make of it?

‘The Mummy’ Sydney Photocall

Following Sydney premiere for ‘The Mummy’, Annabelle Wallis and Sofia Boutella attended the photocall on Tuesday (May 23), alongside their co-stars Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe.

Annabelle Wallis: The British actress turned heads in a colourful Alexander McQueen Spring 2017 dress. It was a bold choice with silver rings piecing together the part Fair Isle, part floral crochet elements. Keeping the dress in focus with simple sandals and loose, wavy hair was the right way to go. If this promo tour is anything to go by, Annabelle’s not just a talented actress, but also a fashion inspiration as well.

Sofia Boutella: The French-Algerian actress may be scary as the mummy in the film, but her outfit choice was anything but. She looked delightful in a sea-green Saloni Fall 2017 dress which was a change in direction from her usual fashion-forward choices. From the modest cut to the long length, this look that was sophisticated, yet feminine; topped off with gold heels and minimal accessories — because the embroidering on the dress makes a statement in itself.

Nicole Kidman In Alexander McQueen – ‘The Beguiled’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Nicole Kidman joined Elle Fanning on the red carpet for ‘The Beguiled’ photocall during Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday (May 24).

Also wearing a look from the Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2017 collection, her dress epitomized romanticism of the brand.

I love how the corset-like bodice reveals a hint of sultry while the grommet belt add an slight edge.

I can’t say that I love the shoes here, but this is still another awe-inspiring look from Nicole.

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews Wedding

The Cannes Film Festival may be in full swing, but the other major event of the weekend was the wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews on Saturday (May 20) at St. Mark’s Church in England.

I was awestruck by the classic beauty of Pippa’s bespoke Giles Deacon lace gown that featured a heart-shaped cutout at the back. It was enduringly romantic, sophisticatedly feminine and forever timeless—everything you’d hope a wedding dress could be.

Her fine tulle veil, with its dégradé of embroidered pearls, was made by renowned milliner Stephen Jones, and it brought a delicate, whisper-light addition to the gown.

A Maidenhair Fern tiara and matching headpiece by Robinson Pelham, along with custom-made Robinson Pelham earrings and custom Manolo Blahnik ‘Seneca’ pumps completed the graceful, fairytale look.

Of course, we cannot forget the bride’s bouquet which included astilbe, sweet pea, peony, freesia and waxflower, as the lushly simple array of white blooms couldn’t have been more suiting.

Chopard Space Party

Galactic with a touch of diamonds was said to be the dress code of the Chopard SPACE Party, co-hosted by Rihanna, during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Friday (May 19), and the stars in attendance indeed delivered a constellation of looks appropriately dusted with Chopard jewels.

Bella Hadid: Lest you think Bella had turned a corner with a newly modest style after the ‘Okja’ premiere, her Roberto Cavalli Couture slit-to-thigh gown promptly signaled her return to the leg jut. But, it was necessary to show off her custom-made Rene Caovilla gladiator sandals. I always find satin a challenging fabric, and that was evidenced here. Futuristically winged eyeliner finished the look.

Adriana Lima: Looking impossibly regal, Adriana struck a divine note in this Reem Acra Spring 2018 Bridal gown that would never be confused for a wedding dress. I was in awe of the glamour that exuded form the embellished top and dramatic, caped split sleeve.

Kendall Jenner: I love the sculptural mood of this shimmering Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture design that could certainly pass for space-age sophistication.
