Janelle Monae In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Janelle Monae attended the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday night (February 26).

The singer and now-actress wore a black Alexandre Vauthier gown from the Fall 2016 Couture collection.

Let’s be honest: Janelle’s Elie Saab Couture gown from the ceremony was a pretty tough act to follow, but I like this choice as the fashion dessert to that main course. It plays along to the same theme–black, voluminous skirt, highly editorial–but in a much edgier fashion.

The punk elements of the mesh sleeves and upper bodice and the brackets on the sash are a bit of a departure for the often ladylike Janelle, and she is selling me hard on the look.

Keeping her hair styled the same throughout the night only further cements the idea that her two gowns were very much two chapters in the same fashion story.

Thank you, Janelle, once again, for making fashion so much more than just a dress and some jewels.

Christian Louboutin ‘Marchavekel’ heels and the same Jennifer Behr headpiece from earlier in the day completed her look.

Ana Girardot In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2017 César Film Awards

Ana Girardot attended the 2017 César Film Awards on Friday (February 24) in Paris alongside Isabelle Huppert and Soko.

Some might say her Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2016 Couture sheer gown leaves a lot to be desired, but the magpie in me is drawn to those sparkling accents.

The fact that Ana’s presents this look in such a relax manner, no makeup and natural tresses makes me feel less perturbed by the fact that I can see her knickers.

Rita Ora In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2017 BRIT Awards

Rita Ora was also in attendance at the 2017 Brit Awards on Wednesday (February 22) in London, England.

The singer likes to make a statement on the red carpet, and while I like the top of this Alexandre Vauthier Couture dress, I’m not keen on the sheer bottom, or the jacket over the top.

On Bella Hadid, the jacket works. But in ‘real life’, it doesn’t really translate as well.

Rihanna has been spotted in the jacket on stage too, teamed with matching trousers and boots, which looked great.

With slick back hair the look was complete with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Do you think a fully embellished version of this dress might have made more of an impact?

Lady Gaga’s Three 2017 Grammy Awards Outfits

After a host of Versace look during last week’s Super Bowl activities, Lady Gaga was back to her bewildering best at the 2017 Grammy Awards.

Red Carpet: The singer went hell for leather starting with chain-accented hot pants and a cropped jacket by Alex Ulichny which showed everything but her nipples. Methinks this outfit was a two-finger salute to all those body shamers.

Performance: Wearing her ‘I’m with the band’ t-shirt, she performed with Metallic wearing a customised vintage t-shirt with more chains, fishnets and safety pins to ensure this was certified rock chick look.

After-Party: Gaga’s final look courtesy of Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2017 Couture collection, was perhaps the most covered up she was all night. This was the perfect party piece which saw her boogie the night away with the ultimate dance partner John Travolta.
