Lady Gaga In Balenciaga – 2015 Met Gala

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala
Lady Gaga swept onto the red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

The entertainer is never one to turn down an opportunity to stand out or to embrace a good costume, and this was no exception.

Completely embodying an Eastern vibe in her custom Balenciaga design, she went the way of the kimono in the colossal, floor-length coatdress that was woven through with black feathers.

Worn over sparkling leggings with her signature, massive platforms, the capacious coat thankfully often hid the silliness of the shoes.

Adorned with Fred Leighton jewels, slightly geisha-inspired makeup, and a black crown atop her jet-black hair, the look was bold, ostentatious, and theatrical—and I fully appreciated it for exactly those reasons.

Ruth Wilson In Balenciaga – A Gala Celebration In Honour Of Kevin Spacey

Ruth Wilson In Balenciaga - A Gala Celebration In Honour Of Kevin Spacey

Ruth Wilson attended the gala celebration at the The Old Vic Theatre in honour of Kevin Spacey, as the artistic director’s tenure comes to an end on Sunday (April 19) in London, England.

I have always been a fan of Ruth Wilson’s style; she likes to take risks and never plays it safe. However, I couldn’t get on board with this latest look from Balenciaga’s Pre-Fall 2015 collection.

Why? I find the dress so very unflattering on Ruth, doing nothing to enhance her figure – in fact, doing the opposite by making her look boxy.

The lacklustre styling and modification to the skirt isn’t helping matters.

Zoe Kravitz In Balenciaga – ‘Good Kill’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Zoe Kravitz In Balenciaga - ‘Good Kill’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere
Zoe Kravitz joined January Jones at the premiere of ‘Good Kill’ during the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival at BMCC Tribeca PAC on Sunday (April 19) in New York City.

The exact opposite to January’s all-white look, Zoe’s Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2015 LBD saw her returning to familiar ground with her favoured colour, black.

Pared down from the lookbook, she styled the structured leather dress simply with black strappy sandals while pulling her braids into a ponytail.

A barely-there makeup palette softened the edges to round out this minimalistic entrance.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear
The 2015 MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles, California and the 2015 Olivier Awards in London, England, both hosted Sunday night (April 12), brought out an eclectic mash-up of style statements from the leading guys. Here, a roundup of their looks.

Michael B. Jordan
: One of the more memorable menswear ensembles at the MTV Movie Awards, the actor was mad for plaid. Some might call the actor’s Vivienne Westwood MAN Fall 2015 suit crazy, but I call it downright cool. He topped off the look with Givenchy shoes and a Montblanc watch.

Chiwetel Ejiofor: Looking regal and refined in a dunhill tuxedo, the actor struck a traditionally classic style note at the Olivier Awards.

Zac Efron: The MTV Movie Awards’ Best Shirtless Scene winner covered up in a sporty, quilted Lanvin jacket, which no doubt had many wishing that he’d skipped the white T-shirt underneath.

Amal Clooney In Gucci – Out In New York City

Amal Clooney In Gucci - Out In New York City

Amal Clooney was spotted leaving Morandi restaurant in New York City, New York on Tuesday (April 7) after teaching a series of lectures at Columbia University.

The Human Rights lawyer was looking as chic as ever, wearing a Gucci Resort 2015 look.

I love how this look reigns supreme with its minimalistic stark exterior, but is then juxtaposed with the python print collar seen throughout this collection.

This look is just oozing with contemporary sartorial finesse and fully-fledged springtime appeal, which she tops off with a sleek and timeless Balenciaga Le Dix Cartable M leather tote.
