Stuart Weitzman’s Fall 2018 Presentation

Lovely ladies put their best foot forward at the Stuart Weitzman Fashion Week Cocktail Party on Thursday (February 8) in New York City.

Doutzen Kroes: Not shying away from making a statement, the Dutch model was clad in an Ingorokva coat and Stuart Weitzman ‘Histyle’ boots. The patent black trench plays off the scrunched effect of the red leather footwear. This is a tricky silhouette to pull off and needed someone of her stature to do it.

Solange Knowles: The singer had plenty of interest in her ensemble with the sharp lines of the Mugler Resort 2018 separates, the Stuart Weitzman ‘Shoebox’ clutch and ‘Eventually’ pumps, and mismatched earrings. I must admit that my eye is still drawn to her pale blonde afro. It had a halo quality in the way it framed her face.

Camilla Belle: Channeling soft sensuality, she wore an Adeam Spring 2018 dress with Stuart Weitzman ‘Alterego’ pumps and John Hardy jewels. It has a retro sentiment without becoming cliché thanks to the cool-toned colour palette and injection of bright pink lipstick.

Emilie de Ravin In Alice McCall – 2018 G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala

Emilie de Ravin, who starred as Claire Littleton on the ABC drama ‘Lost’, joined a host of fellow Australians for the 2018 G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala on Sunday (January 27) in California.

The actress made her return to the red carpet wearing a chiffon floral gown from Alice McCall’s Spring 2018 collection.

Emilie’s beauty blooms in this bright confection, giving a nod to the upcoming season, but I wish the ruffles only appeared on the top of the dress.

Kylie Minogue In Alice McCall – ‘Swinging Safari’ Melbourne Premiere


Kylie Minogue stepped out at the ‘Swinging Safari’ Melbourne premiere on Thursday (December 14).

The singer’s Alice McCall Resort 2018 dress exuded alluring femininity with the asymmetric detailing creating a striking effect with the polka dot pattern.

The ruching could have come across as messy, but the tailoring of the frock married with the cut-outs produced a chic finish that enhanced her petite frame.

Dolce & Gabbana shoes added the right amount of shine.

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.
