Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen - Playford Civic Centre

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge paid a visit to the Playford Civic Centre in the Adelaide suburb of Elizabeth on Wednesday (April 23) in Adelaide, Australia.

The Duchess wore an Alexander McQueen look again, this time wearing a soft-pink V-neck long-sleeved peplum top with a matching swing skirt.

She accessorized her look with L.K. Bennett ‘Sledge’ pumps, her equal favourite L.K. Bennett ‘Natalie’ clutch, Annoushka pearls, a gold chain with Asprey charms and Kiki McDonough pearl drop earrings.

What do you think of this refined take on the label’s avant-garde aesthetic?

Nicki Minaj In Alexander McQueen – ‘The Other Woman’ LA Premiere

Nicki Minaj In Alexander McQueen - ‘The Other Woman’ LA Premiere

Nicki Minaj joined her cast mates, including Cameron Diaz, on the red carpet for ‘The Other Woman’ LA premiere held at the Regency Village Theatre on Monday (April 21) in Westwood, California.

The singer, who plays a small role in the movie as Cameron’s assistant, wore yet another figure-hugging Alexander McQueen dress.

Her diamond-knit patterned dress in a soft, understated sandy hue and featuring a ribbed centre defining the waist could’ve been over-accessorized with a lot of bling, but the more mellow Minaj added a few rings and let the dress do the talking.

It’s saying a lot from the back.

You can buy Nicki’s Alexander McQueen Knit Dress from Net-A-Porter.com, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and Saks.com

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – Easter Sunday Service

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen - Easter Sunday Service

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended Easter Sunday service at St Andrew’s Cathedral on Sunday (April 20) in Sydney, Australia.

This is the one I was waiting for and Catherine didn’t let me down, looking very elegant, wearing a dove-grey funnel neck coat with structured shoulders and dress by Alexander McQueen styled with a Jane Taylor hat in a slightly darker hue.

Cream LK Bennett ‘Harper’ suede pumps and a matching Alexander McQueen clutch sans the brands signature skull clasp completed her look.

At first I was slightly disappointed by the fact that the colour was considerably more muted that I had anticipated, but I was totally swept away by the regal elegance of this look.

Menswear Weekend Roundup

Menswear Weekend RoundupWith the MTV Movie Awards 2014 in Los Angeles, California and the Laurence Olivier Awards in London, England on this past weekend’s roster, the guys hit the red carpet with fashion guns blazing on both sides of the pond.

Jared Leto: Snagging a golden popcorn at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday (April 13) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live for ‘Best On-Screen Transformation’ in ‘Dallas Buyers Club,’ the actor was rock-star rad in a Lanvin black silk knot-embroidered, peak-lapel tuxedo jacket, teamed with aviator shades. Funky, MTV-worthy appeal came in the form of that black-and-white Hawaiian shirt, skinny dark pants and sneakers.

Tom Hiddleston: Looking ever so dapper, the British actor was dressed impeccably at the Laurence Olivier Awards on Sunday (April 13). He paired his sharply tailored, black Alexander McQueen single-breasted, one-button ‘McQueen shoulder’ tuxedo with a white evening shirt with black buttons, black polished stone skull cufflinks and black patent evening shoes.

Orlando Bloom: The winner of the MTV Movie Awards ‘Best Fight’ nod for his role in ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,’ he took to the stage in a monochromatic, head-to-toe Lanvin ensemble. Despite the clashing navy-blue colours, he may be one of the few who could nonchalantly pull off the long fitted coat, worn over an over-dyed button-up cotton shirt, an under T-shirt and cotton pants. Still retaining his cool factor, he accessorized with a few strands of statement pendant necklaces and black hi-top sneakers.
