Chopard Space Party

Galactic with a touch of diamonds was said to be the dress code of the Chopard SPACE Party, co-hosted by Rihanna, during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Friday (May 19), and the stars in attendance indeed delivered a constellation of looks appropriately dusted with Chopard jewels.

Bella Hadid: Lest you think Bella had turned a corner with a newly modest style after the ‘Okja’ premiere, her Roberto Cavalli Couture slit-to-thigh gown promptly signaled her return to the leg jut. But, it was necessary to show off her custom-made Rene Caovilla gladiator sandals. I always find satin a challenging fabric, and that was evidenced here. Futuristically winged eyeliner finished the look.

Adriana Lima: Looking impossibly regal, Adriana struck a divine note in this Reem Acra Spring 2018 Bridal gown that would never be confused for a wedding dress. I was in awe of the glamour that exuded form the embellished top and dramatic, caped split sleeve.

Kendall Jenner: I love the sculptural mood of this shimmering Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture design that could certainly pass for space-age sophistication.

07.04.17 Premiere

End Of The Week Roundup

With so many looks over the past week, here is a roundup of a few that were missed in the red carpet crush of events.

Julie Ann Emery: Joining Jenny Slate at the ‘Gifted’ LA premiere on Tuesday (April 4), Julie Ann embraced a minimalist angle in this Ingie Paris gown that was lovely for its aura of simplicity, although it seemed to fall a tad long at the front.

Olivia Culpo: Speaking of minimalism, this greige Cushnie et Ochs asymmetric jumpsuit was an easy-chic offering. But, it really just played second fiddle to her ultra-bronzed beauty at the grand opening celebration of the W Las Vegas on Friday (March 31).

Jess Weixler:‏ Visually enticing, the crisp white lines of this Jason Wu gown punctuated its rich burgundy hue. I only wish the actress had opted for a sleeker updo at ‘The SON’ LA premiere on Monday (April 3).

Taylor Swift In Ashish – 2015 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Taylor Swift In Ashish - 2015 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Taylor Swift attended the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday (August 30) in Los Angeles, California.

This was the first look I saw from the event and my reaction was sparkly PJs.

A few hours into covering this event and my opinion and dislike for this Ashish look hasn’t wavered.

I’m all for change, especially where Taylor is concerned, but this is not a good look by any stretch of the imagination plus those Christian Louboutin ‘Pumpstagram’ pumps further confuse this situation.

Hands up if you think this was one of the best at this event, because I’m failing to see the appeal.

2015 Glamour Woman of the Year Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Glamour Woman of The Year Awards

There were many more lovely ladies besides Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Kate Hudson and Kerry Washington who attended the 2015 Glamour Woman of the Year Awards at Berkeley Square Gardens on Tuesday (June 2) in London, England.

Gemma Chan: The British actress served up visual splendour wearing an Mary Katrantzou’s intricately printed ‘Cassandra’ dress. I’m glad she kept the spirit of this look alive with a moss-green clutch.

Gillian Anderson: There was a distinct lack of drama at this event, so up stepped Gillian Anderson wearing a nude caped gown by Australian couturier Paolo Sebastian. Some might find this a touch dated, but I’m too busy diverting my eyes away from the upper mid section.

Louise Redknapp: The British presenter usually finds herself at near the top of the my best dressed list, but that wasn’t to be the case on this occasion. While I loved the gorgeous cobalt-blue hue and her breakaway from the expected, this Proenza Schouler basket weave fringe dress fails to flatter, plus her pumps were really dull. The only plus side was the complementary Bottega Veneta clutch.

Jada Pinkett Smith In Ashish – ‘Gotham’ Finale Screening Event

Jada Pinkett Smith In Ashish - 'Gotham' Finale Screening Event

Jada Pinkett Smith attended the ‘Gotham’ finale screening event presented by Fox at the Landmark Theatre on Tuesday (April 28) in Los Angeles, California.

If Elie Saab is the bling king, then Ashish is the prince as the Delhi-born London-based designer loves to transform classic silhouettes with copious amounts of sequins, crystals and high-shine.

Jada’s gingham-patterned sequin mini skirt looks ready to hit the nearest dancefloor, however, she tamed the piece with a classic white shirt, blue Saint Laurent platform pumps and a grey Edie Parker clutch.

Ankles up, she’s rocking the look.

Miley Cyrus In Ashish – SXSW Film-Interactive-Music

Miley Cyrus In Ashish - SXSW Film-Interactive-Music

Miley Cyrus made a surprise appearance at The Fader Fort, presented by Converse, during the SXSW Film-Interactive-Music festival on Thursday (March 19) in Austin, Texas.

The songstress, who joined collaborator Mike WiLL, couldn’t be missed in an Ashish Fall 2015 ensemble that was perfectly in keeping with the rapper spirit of the event.

The heavily sequined, camouflage mini-dress and matching, oversized denim jacket ran no risk of blending into the crowd.

The lace detailing and mega-short frock brought the sexy edge to which we are accustomed in a Miley look, with the choker necklaces, shades, and sneaks all heightening the urban-street appeal.

I’m actually shocked that I am fully accepting of this loud look. Used in the context of the event, it actually provides a good dose of attitude—and she rocks it to her full advantage.
