Carmen Ejogo In Balmain – BET’s ‘Black Girls Rock!’

Carmen Ejogo In Balmain - BET’s ‘Black Girls Rock!

Carmen Ejogo was also in attendance at BET’s ‘Black Girls Rock!’ special at NJ Performing Arts Center on Saturday (March 28) in Newark, New Jersey.

In keeping with what appears to be a black and white color theme of the evening, the ‘Selma’ star was onstage in a Balmain glittery mini with graphic, grid appeal, paired with chunky, block-heeled sandals that also enforced a retro spirit.

Putting a softer edge on all those squares, she wore her hair in voluminous curls and painted on a bold red lip.

It seems she may have skipped the red carpet before the event, but this little number certainly deserved plenty of time in the spotlight.

Did this look check the style box for you?

Balmain Fall 2015 Show & After Dinner Party

Balmain Front Row

Balmain presented their Fall 2015 collection during Paris Fashion Week on Thursday (March 5).

Kim Kardashian: Not quite content with the attention she currently receives, the reality TV star used this occasion to showcase a new platinum-blonde hairdo (which I’m certain is a wig) while wearing an all-black look from the Pre-Fall 2015 collection.

Jared Leto: It seems like Jared had the same idea as he also used this show to showcase not only his blonde hair but also his shorter style. His front-row look was a tad confusing with its part-military, part-schoolboy, part-snow-bunny mash-up. What used to be quirky has started to become comical.

Emily Ratajkowski: Going for style over theatrics, the ‘Gone Girl’ actress wore a heavily beaded ivory and black frock from the Resort 2015 collection, which was sexy without being revealing. It looks like she’s finally found a happy medium.

Solange Knowles’ Paris Fashion Week Style

Solange Knowles' Paris Fashion Week Style

Solange Knowles continues to be a firm fixture in the front row during Paris Fashion Week, with yesterday (March 5) being a very busy day and night.

Carven: She started off her day heading to the Carven Fall 2015 show where she wore a red look from the brand’s Pre-Fall 2015 collection styled with Malone Souliers ‘Montana’ lace sandals and a box clutch in the same mink hue. I think the fur coat with the knit sweater were overkill – it’s not that cold in Paris – plus I think the look would’ve been chicer without the overcoat.

Balmain: Next up was Balmain, where the singer opted for classic black and white. I love the edge given to her look via the cape top, but I’m not a fan of those brown accents on her clutch.

Models @ The 2015 Oscar Parties

Models @ The 2015 Oscars Parties

As always, there were plenty of models on hand to provide the glamour at the Oscar parties on Sunday (February 22).

Alessandra Ambrosio: I was surprised the model didn’t jump on the sheer train; instead she selected a glamorous red gown from the Atelier Versace Spring 2015 collection. This brand of sexiest from Alessandra I can totally get on board with.

Poppy Delevingne: The British model wears a lot of Pucci frocks, having a close relationship with the designer Peter Dundas, so I was surprised no one informed her that Natasha Poly had already worn this frock. Poppy made a great impact styling the look with a choker and deep plum lip.

Suki Waterhouse In Balmain – Vanity Fair Celebrates Young Hollywood

Suki Waterhouse In Balmain - Vanity Fair Celebrates Young Hollywood

Suki Waterhouse attended the Vanity Fair celebration of Young Hollywood held at No Vacancy on Tuesday (February 17) in Los Angeles, California.

When you think of young Hollywood, sheer sultry dresses don’t immediately spring to mind, yet the British actress dared to bare wearing an alluring black chiffon pleated gown from Balmain’s Spring 2015 collection.

I know you are very much over sheer red carpet looks, but there is something about this look that draws me in. Perhaps it’s the effortless nature, or the innocence she’s portraying despite the deep plunge and peek-a-boo offering.

Styled with a metal belt and the runway choker and gold box clutch, was this a case of right dress wrong event?
