Monica In Balenciaga – 2017 ESSENCE Festival

Monica attended the 2017 ESSENCE Festival, where she spoke onstage on Friday (June 30) in New Orleans, Louisiana.

I’m sure many of you will join me in first seeing a men’s nightshirt in this Balenciaga Resort 2017 candy-striped design.

Yet, the breezy ease with which Monica wore this witty interpretation of resort-style lounge wear did somewhat captivate and draw me in.

Her platinum, pixie—cut as sharply as that chopped sleeve—did much in the way of elevating this particular look, making it both as relevant and as polished as a dressing gown can be.

What do you make of it?

Models @ The 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

It was all cheekbones and centre-partings as models descended on the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City.

Bella Hadid: The model is a fan of flashing flesh but kept it sophisticated in this blazer-style dress from Off-White Fall 2017. Top marks for the flared sleeves and retro full fringe. We’ll ignore the pale pink lunch bag style clutch.

Maye Musk: I do love the humour and personality in this Rosie Assoulin Spring 2017 dress. It’s unashamedly extroverted and doesn’t apologise for its bling accessories courtesy of Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry.

Karen Elson: Ah, red and green a hallowed combination that almost never goes wrong. Unfortunately, the tried and tested combo falls short here. The Anna Sui Fall 2017 dress is a confusing array of frills, draping, and puff sleeves. Combined with heavy shoes, this look is overwhelmingly bad.

Salma Hayek In Balenciaga – 2017 Met Gala

Salma Hayek hit a rare fashion homerun at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

As you know I find Salma’s style very frustrating, yet when her body is fully celebrated like in this sultry Balenciaga number, I’m a happy camper.

The hip high Balenciaga boots gives the look an edge and takes this into a new territory of cool we’ve never seen from her before.

I hope she stays on track and ditches the Gucci looks which; hard as she tries, don’t work for her.

Variety Power of Women Event Red Carpet Roundup

Blake Lively wasn’t the only power female at Variety’s Power of Women: New York event on Friday (April 21) in New York City, as other leading femmes were also in attendance.

Jessica Chastain: As an honoree of the evening, Jessica dressed for the occasion with chic sophistication in a Carolina Herrera embellished dress with playful tied sleeves. As the actress looks so good in colour, I’m glad she wore a vibrant mulberry lip, with silver metallic pumps adding more zing.

Katie Lee: You won’t find any objection from me with the bold, bright nature of this Proenza Schouler lily print frock. I do wish she had more sleekly completed the look with a stronger makeup look and a pulled-back hairstyle.

Salma Hayek: Salma went for a classically reserved Balenciaga ensemble with elongating stripes. But, I do wish she had worn a sandal instead of the patent black pumps to further the effect.

Variety’s Power Of Women Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

Variety's Power Of Women Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

There were plenty more ladies who attended Variety’s Power Of Women Luncheon at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Friday (October 9) in Beverly Hills, California.

Thandie Newton: I love this bold, colourful choice by the British actress who paired her green and brown African-print blouse with a magenta silk skirt by Bestow Elan. It made such outstanding impact.

Reese Witherspoon: Going down an expected route, the actress wore a pretty Balenciaga frock with Christian Louboutin ‘Benedetta’ sandals which couldn’t have been more appropriate for a luncheon.

Salma Hayek: After a few appearance which I didn’t favour, sexy Salma was back. This sultry Bottega Veneta sheath does wonders for her curves. I love the colour combo here.

Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party

Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party

A crush of chic beauties and models of the moment made for quite the spectacular showing at the Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party on Friday (October 3) in Paris, France.

Giovanna Battaglia: Everything was coming up roses, in rather dramatic fashion, for Giovanna who left no petal unturned in this Alexander McQueen Fall 2015 red rose organza and lace ruffle dress worn with a lace bra and black lace embroidered boots. I kind of wish that lace collar piece was missing in action.

Kendall Jenner
: The model went the sophisticatedly chic route in an Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2015 Couture black velvet bustier gown constructed with a touch of youthful charm in the large collection of ruffle roses that dotted the hem of the dress. The finish of a ruby lip brought even more va-voom spirit.

Zoe Kravitz: Adding more rose-laced, flower-power to the proceedings, she rocked the Balenciaga Spring 2016 dress that she modeled during the label’s runway show paired with Balenciaga matching mules and complementary jewels. This is a more delicate side to Zoe’s style, but the full-on sheer story and high-waisted briefs has me fatigued on this occasion.
