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.


You can buy Jada’s Ashish Gingham Sequin Mini Skirt from or Nordstrom.

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.

Lily Allen In Ashish & Marios Schwab – Sushisamba Second Anniversary

Lily Allen In Ashish & Marios Schwab - Sushisamba Second Anniversary

Lily Allen performed at Sushisamba in London on Tuesday (November 11) to celebrate the restaurant’s second anniversary, where she donned two looks.

Performance: Ashish seems to be Lily’s go-to designer for onstage looks. No doubt the shimmer and sparkle, plus the street-urban overtones, continue to be the big appeal. On this occasion she selected a white layered organza crop top and Ashish sequinned embellished track pants from the Fall 2014 collection, which she amped up with purple satin pumps.

Party: For the party the singer changed into a black Marios Schwab Spring 2015 strapless mini dress with buckle detailing and flowing nude chiffon draped panels, which I loved on the runway, but not so much on Lily. It does nothing for her. I would prefer to see this on someone really leggy like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or Anne Hathaway, and the necklaces are overkill.
