Lupita Nyong’o In Balmain – ‘Black Panther’ London Premiere

Lupita Nyong’o joined Florence Kasumba, Letitia Wright, Leona Lewis, and Danai Gurira on the black carpet for the ‘Black Panther’ London premiere on Thursday (February 8).

She set the bar so high at the world premiere with her regal Atelier Versace gown. But, rather than go head to head with that uniquely striking, colour-saturated look, she continued to have a moment with metallics in this Balmain gown that shimmered in silver embellishment.

As this was Balmain, the strong, sultry tone was duly noted in the plunge neckline and the high slit.

However, it was her styling that made the look a Lupita one, with a glam-bam one-two punch in her diamond De Beers jewels and bold beauty and hair.

Solid & Striped ‘Swim Team’ Launch Dinner Party

Solid & Striped hosted a party for its new ‘Swim Team’ campaign in New York on Tuesday (February 6). Naturally, many of the leggy lovelies who feature in the campaign were on hand to celebrate the swimwear.

Jourdan Dunn: Saturated hues were a big element of the Solace London Spring 2018 collection, and this marigold asymmetrical dress is a perfect example. With her smoky eye, the sensually draped dress was a smoldering look for the model. However, I especially love that she took it a step further and wore fuchsia Aquazzura ‘Simply Irresistible’ pumps along with Jennifer Fisher statement earrings and a Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Gracie’ clutch.

Lily Aldridge: A sultry, red-hot vibe was alive and well in this plunging Brandon Maxwell Spring 2018 rolled-collar jumpsuit that likewise oozed with classic sophistication in its clean lines. The matching red lip was the cherry on top.

Britain’s Got Talent London Auditions

The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ London auditions kicked off at the London Palladium on Sunday (January 28) with judges Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden celebrating in high style.

Alesha Dixon: Not being bothered about showing legs and cleavage, she went for the unabashed sexiness of Balmain. The sensual nature of the form-fitting top and embellished mini was softened with the sheer longline jacket. It echoed the military mood of the separates with the khaki green colour enlivening her complexion.

Amanda Holden: Also opting for separates, she teamed a Dolce & Gabbana dress with a Maje jacket. The prim feminine charm of the pleated style was juxtaposed with the cropped biker for a punk-meets-pretty finish.

Anna Kendrick In Balmain & La Perla – 2018 Grammy Awards

Anna Kendrick was also at the 2018 Grammy Awards tonight (January 28) in New York City.

Like Eve, Anna skipped a dress in favour of tailoring with this Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 plaid suit. But, this is nothing new for the actress who’s worn a suit to the Grammys before.

Boudoir met boardroom with this look, and here I would argue that the seductive appeal of the lace La Perla ‘Quartz Garden’ bodysuit necessary to balance the boxier shapes.

Pink Casadei pumps were an unexpected addition to the ensemble, offering a flirty, girlish finish to its sultrier connotations.

16th Sidaction

There was a bounty of beauties at the 16th Sidaction event, which is part of the Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture Spring Summer 2018 season, on Thursday (January 25) in Paris, France.

Melanie Thierry: I did a double take when I saw the actress as her blonde hair has been dyed a striking ginger shade. It was offset with the jeweled embellishment on her Miu Miu outfit. The beige coat could be deemed too casual by some, but it had an insouciant allure.

Isabelle Huppert: The ‘Elle’ actress proved the beauty of simplicity in an Azzaro Fall 2017 Couture gown. The diagonal detailing had a captivating wrap-around event that showcased her incredible figure.

Elodie Bouchez: Skinny pants plus a mannish blazer is a favourite silhouette of many. She took her Saint Laurent separates further adding a shimmering shirt and supersized earrings. It could have had 80s power suit connotations, but the dark colour palette and tailoring made it feel au courant.

Hailee Steinfeld In Balmain – Lip Sync Battle Live: A Michael Jackson Celebration

Hailee Steinfeld turned heads at the Lip Sync Battle Live: A Michael Jackson Celebration on Thursday (January 18) in Hollywood, California, joining Taraji P. Henson.

I love the boldness of this Balmain Spring 2018 outfit and how it embodies the brand and the spirit of Michael Jackson.

The embellishment emboldens the louche black separates for a dazzling effect.

This would have been a knockout for me if she had worn a black T-shirt in a similar length to the runway one.

The high-cut bodysuit visible through the sheer trousers and the opaque pocket bags are unfortunately where my eye goes first.

Alesha Dixon In Balmain – ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Blackpool Auditions

Alesha Dixon was back on the red carpet for the ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Blackpool auditions on Tuesday (January 16) in England.

The judge is known for her fashion-forward style, but on this occasion she opted to keep things simple and glam in Balmain.

I love the decidedly chic ’70s vibe and how the linear stripes elongate her frame.

The earrings might be a tad OTT for some, but bold earrings has always been an Alesha signature piece.
