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.

Nicki Minaj In Alexander McQueen – MTV Movie Awards 2014

Nicki Minaj In Alexander McQueen - MTV Movie Awards 2014Nicki Minaj slinked onto the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards 2014 at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (April 13). And, in doing so, she gave me quite the shock of the night.

Rather than parading about in her unapologetically bizarro concoctions, the pint-sized rapper was rather subdued—at least by her standards—in a refined Alexander McQueen figure-scraping, black gown.

While the dress called attention to her hourglass curves, it did so demurely. The loudest shout in this look came from the Midas accessories, as she loaded up on the gold.

In addition to her Cleopatra necklace and earrings, she rocked the same McQueen arm cuffs that we previously saw on Sienna Miller earlier this year.

I have to say that I barely recognized the entertainer without her Rainbow-Brite fashion, nor her over-the-top Crayola makeup and platinum, bleach-blonde locks, which were replaced by sleek, dark Veronica Lake waves and the flick of a cat-eye.

Perhaps her cameo in ‘The Other Woman’ with Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton has softened her fashion sense, transforming the style chameleon into a more sophisticated, yet still-edgy vamp star.

Rebecca Hall In Alexander McQueen – ‘Transcendence’ LA Premiere

Rebecca Hall In Alexander McQueen - ‘Transcendence’ LA Premiere

Rebecca Hall attended the ‘Transcendence’ premiere held at the Regency Village Theatre on Thursday (April 10) in Westwood, California alongside Kate Mara.

The British actress wore a black Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014 frock, with intricate beaded and jewelled embellishments elevating this floor-grazing short-sleeved gown.

No McQueen look would be complete without a punk clutch, which perfectly complements the detailing on her frock.

Edging up the look yet another notch, she styled her look with multi-stud earrings, which are effortlessly displayed thanks to her half-up, half-down swept-back ‘do.

Glossy lips and shimmering copper eye makeup rounded out her look.

BDOTW-worthy or just OK?
