Alice McCall Spring 2018 Launch Event

The Alice McCall Spring 2018 launch event on Thursday (October 19) in Los, Angeles, California had a plethora of cool girls in attendance to support the designer.

Stella Maxwell: The face of the new Alice McCall campaign went for a sexy, sheer look with an evident lingerie vibe. The model’s black bra and briefs were on full display underneath a lace maxi dress. Admittedly, a lot of people might not even notice her shoes, but I liked the contrast of the chunky brogues.

Jaime King:
Opting for a more covered black ensemble, the actress wore a black gown with an up-to-there slit. The dress still had a lingerie feel due to the sheer skirt and ruffle details. Jaime brought an alluring elegance to it with her classic black accessories and wavy hairstyle.

Rainey Qualley: The singer, who performed at the event, donned a black and white playsuit. The style had a retro, feminine quality thanks to the wrap front and drawstring sleeves, but she put her unique spin on it with the chain belt and a pair of dusty blue ankle boots. It was an intriguing mix, but I find the belt doesn’t have enough impact against the abstract print.

Irving Penn Exhibition Private Viewing Hosted by Vogue

A private viewing, hosted by Vogue, for the Irving Penn exhibition at the Grand Palais was held on Sunday (October 1) during Paris Fashion Week.

Adwoa Aboah: Taking a break from walking the runways at Paris Fashion Week, Adwoa posed in a Richard Quinn Spring 2018 look that offered an invigorating, happy mix of ditzy florals. You would think with so many bold, competing prints that this would translate as disjointed. But, on the contrary, I loved this look on Adwoa, and I also credit its success to her minimal approach to the styling, with a black sandal and red pout all she needed. Flower power, indeed.

Kylie Minogue: I think it’s safe to say that Kylie put this Alice McCall ‘More Than A Woman’ fringe gown to work for her—as it was made to be spun around. As fun as it was, I was a bit tassel fatigued and the muted, mauve-pink colour wasn’t my favourite for the vibrancy of the entertainer, but she attempted to bring a splash of vividness via her lipstick.

Dita von Teese: With a look that riffed on the field-of-poppies print from the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2017 Couture collection, Dita maximized proportions with this look. I have mixed feelings on the balloon sleeves, as they might be lumped into a costume-y circus category. But, the colours were striking in contrast to the black pencil skirt.

Kaia Gerber’s Paris Fashion Week Style

Cindy Crawford’s daughter, Kaia Gerber, may only be 16, but she has the supermodel gene. She just walked the Saint Laurent runway on Tuesday (September 26) during Paris Fashion Week, but her off-duty style has also provided plenty of catwalk-worthy moments in France—and the week has only just begun.

Look 1: On Tuesday (September 26), she rocked a pair of striped trousers from The Kooples Fall 2017 collection that stayed on the sophisticated side of trendy thanks to her styling. I love how she kept the look minimal with timeless shades, a black jumper and buckle-strap block heels to round out the statement pants. The look was complete with shades and a Stalvey bag.

Look 2: The day before, Monday (September 25), Kaia trotted out another cool-girl-on-the-town look in this Alice McCall embellished, two-piece set that subtly riffed on overalls. The Freda Salvador mules and Prada Cahier bag brought a classic spin to the youthful-chic look.

Look 3: Also on Monday, she was seen in another edgy-forward look, this one combining the feminine floral motif of a Réalisation Par mini dress with the tougher spirit of a Laer Pre-Fall 2017 cropped moto jacket, an Eddie Borgo denim cross-body bag, and retro-inspired Vogue shades. Naturally, the lug-sole boots provided a touch of stylish grunge appeal, while likely being a comfortable option for the streets of Paris.

She was three for three with these looks that showcase an impressive grasp of style beyond her years. Would you agree?

Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

The list of lovelies at Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’ on Friday (September 8) in New York City was seemingly unending, as a number of stars joined Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, and Kim Kardashian.

Gigi Hadid: Her hyper-embellished Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2017 ensemble, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, was so intricate and powerful of a statement that it really didn’t require the rhinestone clogs.

Kaia Gerber: Cindy Crawford’s model daughter was all grown up in a slinky Kristian Aadnevik Fall 2017 mini that had her looking like her mom more and more.

Kendall Jenner: There was little left to the imagination in this Dolce & Gabbana ruched, sheer number. Yet, ironically in spite of the see-through, I couldn’t help but still get a certain sophisticated, glam vibe with the look, which I will chalk up to its silhouette along with Kendall’s Old-Hollywood waves, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and Jimmy Choo sandals.

2017 Teen Choice Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Many more PYTs—and one handsome lad—took to the ‘blue’ carpet at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday (August 13) in LA with a range of creative looks that had youth on their side.

Katie Stevens: Although the rich, emerald-green hue of Katie’s Styland sexy suiting was eye-catching, I do believe it more readily exposed the jacket and trousers to some slight fit issues. As for those black pumps, the look would have been better served by a sandal. However, her L’Dezen by Payal Shah diamond earrings fit right in.

Georgie Flores: The ‘Famous in Love’ actress’s Alice McCall frock playfully riffed on polka dots and floral with a hint of sultriness in the sheer lace and strappy sandals.

Naya Rivera: Call it a Canadian tuxedo, but I’m calling this all-denim statement utterly cool. I loved seeing Naya in this Marques’ Almeida Spring 2017 ensemble that intriguingly paired pouf sleeves and ripped jeans with her signature sexy finish in the makeshift plunge neckline. This is how to take a throwback look and make it look completely relevant—and fun.

Emma Roberts In Alice McCall – Domino X American Express Platinum Party

Sometimes less is more, and Emma Roberts provided proof at the Domino X American Express Platinum party on Friday (August 4) in Bridgehampton, New York.

There really wasn’t much to her Alice McCall Resort 2018 mini, but that’s what made it so successfully chic.

I love its playful, girly side with the ruffle sleeve and hem paired with the sleek, short silhouette and front zipper that toughened it up just so.

Just as important to the success of the look was the minimal approach to its styling, with Jennifer Meyer jewels, streamlined Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, and a flirty, pink lip the perfect, less-is-more accompaniments.

It was adorable in all the right ways—and I adored it. What about you?
