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.

Lily James In Altuzarra – Cinderella Exhibition Photocall

Lily James In Altuzarra - Cinderella Exhibition Photocall

Following the London premiere last week, Lily James attended a photocall for the ‘Cinderella’ exhibition on Friday (March 20) in London, England.

Working pattern play, the British actress wore an Altuzarra Spring 2015 look consisting of a gingham blouse and striped skirt, which made for quite a striking and fresh combination.

The look is very lady-like as we would expect, with a hint of office chic, but the pumps feel a tad too heavy for this particular look.

Nicole Kidman In Altuzarra – Etihad Airways Announcement

Nicole Kidman In Altuzarra - Etihad Airways Announcement

Nicole Kidman attended a press conference announcing her role as brand ambassador for Etihad Airways on Saturday (March 14) in Abu Dhabi.

The Australian actress was looking as chic as ever wearing an Altuzarra devore top and skirt from the Pre-Fall 2015 collection rendered in an animal-print and burgundy hue.

Opting not to play up the alluring nature of the keyhole look, the dress was slightly modified perhaps on account of respect to the hosts.

Jimmy Choo ‘Ari’ pumps and sleek tresses rounded out this effortless look.

Zoe Saldana In Altuzarra – Moet & Chandon’s Celebration of Roger Federer’s 1,000th Career Match

Zoe Saldana In Altuzarra - Moet & Chandon’s Celebration of Roger Federer’s 1,000th Career Match

Zoe Saldana attended Moet & Chandon’s celebration of Roger Federer’s 1,000th career match win held at the Four Seasons Hotel on Saturday (March 7) in Beverly Hills, California.

Following Oscar night, when the new mum gave us two great red carpet looks, the actress continues that great form, working a white skirt suit from the Altuzarra Pre-Fall 2015 collection.

Altuzarra has garnered a reputation for sophisticated ready-to-wear that packs a seductive punch – case in point, the lace-up detailing on the placket and waist enhances the impeccably tailored suit for an alluring finish.

Zoe’s Christian Louboutin pumps also pack a mighty punch, with their striped colourful design giving the look a defined edge.

2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet Roundup

Vanity Fair Party

Here is an quick roundup from the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, which took place on Sunday (February 22).

Jane Fonda: The actress shows us that Zuhair Murad doesn’t always spell tacky. This Spring 2015 Couture jumpsuit is divine and she is working it like no other. Kudos to her. Jimmy Choo ‘Creole’ pumps and a Rauwolf clutch accessorized her look.

Regina King: This Nicolas Jebran gown won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I love the artful colours on this design. I don’t, however, like the illusion neckline. Not close enough to her skin tone.

Leslie Mann: Like Naomi Watts, Leslie went the white suiting route, layering up with a selection of gold Neil Lane jewels the look probably didn’t really require so much of.

Emma Stone In Altuzarra – 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Emma Stone In Altuzarra - 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Emma Stone attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Party, hosted at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

Looking to another era for inspiration, the actress channeled vintage glamour in a plunging red, pleated gown with deco-inspired sequined embroidery from the Altuzarra Fall 2015 collection.

The dropped-waist, above-the-ankle silhouette had the spirited influence of flapper styling.

I’m not a huge fan of the lace, scarf-like detail, as it feels like a mere afterthought here, although it saves the neckline from verging on too bare.

She styled the retro-facing look with black Christian Louboutin ‘Just On’ sandals and the same wavy ‘do from earlier in the evening.

With plenty of love and also loathing directed towards her chartreuse Oscars gown, how does her ruby-red dress rate?
