2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The was plenty of shimmer and sass at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday (March 11) in Inglewood, California, where celebrities joined Hailey Baldwin and Iggy Azalea.

Madelaine Petsch: The ‘Riverdale’ actress opted for L’atiste by Amy coordinates and a Tyler Ellis clutch. At music awards shows almost anything goes, but this doesn’t feel quite right for the event. The accessories are enhancing the disjointed impression. The co-ords would have been cute at a photocall.

Ashley Greene: Projecting a darker mood, the actress wore a Shoshanna dress printed with metallic blooms. The flared frock was a change of pace from the usual slinky gowns, but I can see some taking issue with the prom feel.

Justine Skye: The singer brightened up the carpet in a Cushnie et Ochs dress with Pierre Hardy ‘Parade’ sandals and Area earrings. It was a fun look with her purple bun playing off the contrasting colours in the shoes.

Penelope Cruz In Versace & Balmain 44 François Premier – ‘Loving Pablo’ Madrid Photocall & Premiere

Penélope Cruz offered up a duet of strong looks at both the Madrid photocall and premiere for ‘Loving Pablo’ on Tuesday (March 7) in Spain.

Photocall: Naturally, the Versace devotee donned a look from the Versace Spring 2018 collection. I really like the cool-girl, tribute-inspired attitude of the look with the studded leather jacket and the Medusa belt. My feeling is that, in person, the intricate play of black textures between the sheer pleated miniskirt, the tights and the slouchy boots were a bit more successfully defined than as captured in photographs.

Models @ The Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Models stormed the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California, with a range of head-turning looks—for better or worse.

Alessandra Ambrosio: The naked dress had another showing with this Ralph & Russo Couture embellished, sheer design, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. There will be no doubt her body isn’t rocking, but I know eyes will be rolling at the complete transparency of the look.

Ashley Graham: This Rubin Singer gown featured a recognizable, slit-to-there silhouette, but it was the gleaming sheen that upped the ante. A swept-back hairstyle and Sophia Webster sandals completed the look.

Lily Aldridge: The golden-goddess look served Lily well in this Versace liquid-gold gown that had a certain chainmail effect. Christian Louboutin heels and Bvlgari jewels and bag finished her glamorously regal entrance.

Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of memorable looks at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California.

Karolina Kurkova: Look closely at the Czech model’s Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 suit as the fabric has a marvelous texture that’s flecked with sparkles on the collar. It might not have been the loudest look, but it was unique and nice to see another pants option.

Darby Stanchfield: The ‘Scandal’ actress celebrated floral and fauna with her Teresa Helbig gown. Unfortunately, there were too many opposing elements between the print, sequins, sharp neckline and the sparkling bag. I can see some saying it’s a lesser version of Gucci.

Petra Nemcova: The philanthropist and model struck a pose in a sunny Celia Kritharioti gown. It was a well-executed look with her waves echoing the ruffled shoulder detail. The red lipstick and high slit added allure to the cheerful fabric.

Tracee Ellis Ross In Balmain 44 François Premier – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

I always look forward to seeing what mood Tracee Ellis Ross will project on the red carpet. At the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4), she made a strong, sharp-shouldered statement, alongside Rashida Jones and Sarah Paulson.

The ‘Black-ish’ actress shimmered in a Balmain 44 François Premier gown. It was a quieter look given the designer’s penchant for dramatic opulence, but in no way was it boring.

The bodice, festooned with embellishment, created a dynamic textural contrast against the soft pleating of the black skirt.

She married the two fabrics with a Judith Leiber clutch and Roger Vivier shoes.

Jane Fonda In Balmain – 2018 Oscars

Jane Fonda was one of many stars who made their way down the red carpet of the 2018 Oscars in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 4).

The living legend wore a custom Balmain gown with Ferragamo shoes and Chopard jewels.

As usual, Jane is resplendent. She does structure unlike anyone else, and this entire look is the definition of fierce.

Honestly, the only other thing to say here is, ‘Can I please be this amazing when I’m 80?’

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.
