Michelle Obama’s Tour Of Asia

Michelle Obama's Five-Day Tour Of Asia

United States First Lady Michelle Obama arrived in Japan last week for a three-day visit, as part of a drive to promote girls’ education around the world, before heading to Cambodia for two days. Wearing a range of designers, she dynamically showed her love of bold colours and prints—and her ability to wear them confidently and effortlessly.

Look 1: Michelle couldn’t have made a better first impression upon arrival at Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport on Wednesday (March 18), waving to onlookers in a citron-yellow Kenzo printed frock that had me at hello. The colour was glorious on her and so, too, was the box-pleated, voluminous skirt. Some might say the statement metallic belt was a bit too much, but I would say it added an artsy edge. I’m glad she chose the directional Japanese label—and that she wore it without a tinge of try-hard.

Look 2: On Thursday (March 19), FLOTUS attended the Japan-U.S. Joint Girls Education Event at the Iikura Guest House in Tokyo. She was radiant in an Altuzarra custom dress coat from the Spring 2015 collection with a burnt-orange, lotus-inspired stencil print; a motif likely selected to pay homage to her Japanese tour.

Victoria Justice In Alice + Olivia – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Victoria Justice In Alice + Olivia - The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Victoria Justice made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Friday (January 16) to promote her new MTV show, ‘Eye Candy’.

Known for her sweet youthful approach to red carpet dressing, the 21-year-old actress amped things up a bit wearing an Alice + Olivia dress.

Yes, it’s seemingly a three-piece number, but the unique LBD connects at the back with a leather-trimmed zipper.

For me this combination of a leather collar, boned tube-style bodice and sleek high-waisted pencil skirt creates a sexy and slick look, especially for an after-dark appearance.

A selection of subtle jewels and a hot red lip rounded out her look.

Jhene Aiko In Alice + Olivia – 2014 American Music Awards

Jhene Aiko In Alice + Olivia - 2014 American Music Awards

Jhené Aiko attended the 2014 American Music Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (November 23) in Los Angeles, California.

Going for glamour rather than working the sassy angle, the singer wore an Alice + Olivia’s gown worthy of a red carpet event, but was this the right gown for this occasion?

I say why not? I mean what’s not to love about this beautiful gown finished in striking glimmering red brocade with a T-back, which she styled with a game-changing Amrapli necklace which elevated the look along with her Rauwolf clutch.

Music awards don’t always have to be about wearing the shortest frock or a gown with a slit to the hip bone. I find this sweet and refreshing.

Gwyneth Paltrow In Alice + Olivia – Imagine1day Annual Gala

Gwyneth Paltrow In Alice + Olivia - Imagine1day Annual Gala

Gwyneth Paltrow attended Imagine1day Annual Gala honouring Tracy Anderson held at SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills on Wednesday (November 19) in Los Angeles, California.

Channelling her inner girlie girl Gwyneth wore an Alice + Olivia black and white dress, with an ab-baring cut-out, which appears to be a two-piece look until you check out the lace black.

Constructed for easy wear, the actress styled her look with Gianvito Rossi ‘Carol’ lace sandals with pops of bright pink coming via her lips and box clutch.

While nothing had changed on the hair front, as least we got to see a different silhouette from Gwyneth.

Victoria Justice In Alice + Olivia – 2014 Nickelodeon HALO Awards

Victoria Justice In Alice + Olivia - 2014 Nickelodeon HALO Awards

Victoria Justice joined Zendaya Coleman on the red carpet for the 6th Annual Nickelodeon Halo Awards in New York City on Saturday (November 15).

Bursting onto the red carpet in a bold printed Alice + Olivia Resort 2015 suit, she was aiming not to be a wallflower.

This kind of print can be somewhat overbearing, and jarring with a busy backdrop, but opting for solid red Alice + Olivia ‘Makayla’ heels and an Alice + Olivia ‘Jackie’ black mini-box leather bag creates a nice balance.

While I much prefer the look book’s trousers, the cropped style Victoria opted for gives her look a more youthful flair.
