Priyanka Chopra In Balmain – 2017 Emmy Awards

Priyanka Chopra has been the darling of a few different awards shows so I was curious to see what the actress would wear to the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 17).

Rather than go for proper princess, the Emmy presenter offered a tougher vibe with a decorated custom Balmain dress. A feather train and long sleeves softened the heavy embellishment.

Lorraine Schwartz earrings provided a touch more sparkle and brought attention to the ‘Quantico’ actress’s plum lips and eyeshadow.

What did you think of the makeup?

Matilde Gioli In Balmain – ‘The Shape Of Water’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Matilde Gioli attended the ‘The Shape Of Water’ 74th Venice Film Festival premiere on Thursday (August 31).

This opinion might not be shared, but think she totally nailed this Balmain Pre-Fall 2017 look.

Not for the faint-hearted, this dress has a lot going on but Matilde managed contained all the elements by keeping her styling simple.

What makes this a success over Alessandra Ambrosio’s at the VMAs?

A lot more presence, opting for simple footwear and hairstyle which didn’t scream juvenile.

Alessandra Ambrosio In Balmain – 2017 MTV VMAs

Alessandra Ambrosio’s Balmain Resort 2018 look at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (August 27) was by far the most shocking.

Why?

Because it didn’t follow her usual less-is-more, sheer, embellished, slit to the hip-bone mould.

Instead she donned a mesh dress with intricate embroidery styled with matching over-the-knee lace up boots.

It was a refreshing change, but at the same time felt very stiff and restricting.

If I was to nit-pick one more thing, I would say the hairstyle doesn’t quite suit the look.

The Victoria’s Secret casting serves up some lusty-worthy street style looks

The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is due to take place in November, so auditions are already underway at VS HQ in New York City.

Models arrived in an array of gorgeous looks, but crop tops were most prevalent, which was not surprising considering having a toned tum is a prerequisite for the job.

Hailey Baldwin: Back in 2016 she said, “I want to walk in the Victoria’s Secret show, it’s every girl’s dream.” Well, it looks like the model will finally get her wish. She arrived wearing casual Frame Denim jeans with a sexy Balmain sheer crossover-front tulle crop top which she styled with a Gucci GG Marmont Camera mini quilted leather shoulder bag and Saint Laurent pumps. I can already hear your groans of disappointment that she’s even at the casting stage.

Maria Borges: I love how the model used the streets of Manhattan as her runway. She was serving up so much style and glamour wearing a cute floral romper with Zac Posen shades. I love the added pop via the red Calvin Klein pumps.

Jasmine Tookes: Even a Designers Remix polka dot dress and denim jacket can look super luxe on Jasmine. I love the chic laidback vibe of this look.

BALMAIN Celebrates LA Boutique Opening and Beats by Dre Collaboration

BALMAIN’s bevy of beauties all came out to play on Thursday (July 20) in Beverly Hills to celebrate the opening of the French house’s first-ever West Coast boutique as well as the launch of the BALMAIN Special Edition Beats Studio Wireless and Powerbeats3 Wireless, which became available on July 19.

The BALMAIN Resort 2018 women’s and men’s collections made the rounds throughout the evening, set against music sets by DJ Kiss and DJ M.O.S. as well as a special live performance by MIGOS.

Here, all the dazzling BALMAIN looks that creative director Olivier Rousteing and his celebrity friends served up.

Hailee Steinfeld
: Never shy of toying with the more avant-garde, Hailee was a statement-making starlet in the BALMAIN army on this night with her striking head-to-toe suit of fashion armor that she commanded with ease.

Kim Kardashian: Mixing low-key with high-octane, she undoubtedly garnered attention with her more casual crop bralette paired with an embellished, windowpane skirt. Keeping the look beautifully simple in its styling, she wore Lucite heels that were nearly invisible along with nude makeup and long Cleopatra locks to complete the very Kim K look.

Kate Bosworth
: The true epitome of a party dress defined, this flirtatious frock was sophisticatedly edgy in its gilded, backless design. But it was the playful fun of the tutu that really delivered the soiree-ready whimsy. Giuseppe Zanotti pumps completed the look.

Cara Delevingne In Balmain – George V Hotel

Cara Delevingne has been an eternally cool fixture at a number of Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week shows and fetes recently.

On Wednesday (July 5), she parlayed her statement style to the street, while stepping out from the George V Hotel in Paris, France.

I love how she pared back this Balmain Pre-Fall 2017 look to incorporate the fringe, tweed skirt with a printed T-shirt, making it a bit more summer-forward.

The over-the-knee boots didn’t exactly continue that vibe, but they checked the box on Cara’s edgy aesthetic.

Rocking Privé Revaux ‘The Celebrity’ shades, she completed the look in top form for an off-duty ensemble that was totally on point.
