The 2017 Miss Universe Pageant

The 2017 Miss Universe Pageant took place on Sunday (November 26) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Fergie: Some would class her Balmain mini sparkler a typical Vegas glam look, what with the micro length and the embellishments, and they wouldn’t be wrong as this dress makes the ultimate Vegas statement – “Look at me now”.

Rachel Platten: When you look at Fergie’s dress and Rachel’s J. Mendel Resort 2018 pale-blue gown, you’d be forgiven for thinking they were at totally different events.

Ashley Graham: The model, who was the backstage host, wore a Michael Costello fitted lace dress. When I think of the designer; sexy gowns with plunging necklines spring to mind. And when I think of Ashley’s styled silk dresses and a corset are usually her red carpet M.O., so this is refreshing and intriguing on both fronts.

Tracee Ellis Ross hosts the 2017 AMAs in Stella McCartney, Vintage Halston, Christian Siriano, Ronald van der Kemp Couture, Balmain, Giambattista Valli Couture, Paco Rabanne & Roberto Cavalli

Tracee Ellis Ross hosted the 2017 American Music Awards on Sunday (November 19) in LA, where her mother Diana Ross was honored with a lifetime achievement award, and her brother, Evan Ross with wife Ashlee Simpson Ross were also in attendance.

Starting off with two sparkling looks, Tracee graced the red carpet wearing a Stella McCartney frock. I didn’t quite get her red Tamara Mellon sandals until I realised they pick up the exposed red seams of her dress. Her jewels were courtesy of Irene Neuwirth.

I like how her embellished vintage Halston jumpsuit from Shrimpton Couture was giving off a 60s vibe especially when paired with her fuchsia pink go-go boots.

2017 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Many modes of so-called glamour were represented at the 2017 Glamour Women of the Year Awards on Monday (November 13) in Brooklyn, New York. Here’s a look at some of the other femmes in attendance.

Sailor Brinkley: Simple seduction was precisely what this ZAC Zac Posen Resort 2018 sequin slip gown was all about—with Sailor’s romantic ringlets to follow form.

Yolanda Hadid: For Yolanda, an LBD meant a long black dress in this Akris gown that smartly hinted at seduction in the keyhole detail and side slit.

Sofia Coppola: Fresh and snappy, this Michael Kors Collection Resort 2018 floral frock brought a boldly printed twist to Sofia’s comfortable, no-nonsense style.

SAG-AFTRA Foundation Patron of the Artists Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The red carpet was alight with stylish stars at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Patron of the Artists Awards on Thursday (November 9) in Beverly Hills, California.

Kristen Bell: It may be autumn, but the actress kept the spring spirit alive in a Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2017 dress. The yellow and blue blooms had an ebullient mood which was enhanced with Jennifer Meyer jewels and white heels.

Andrew Garfield: Cutting a dapper figure, the ‘Breathe’ actor broke away from coordinates, pairing a brown and navy check jacket with slim navy trousers. A dark blue sweater completed the ensemble, presenting a modern alternative to a suit and tie.

Tracee Ellis Ross: The ‘Black-ish’ actress’s love of fashion is apparent in many of her outfits, including this vintage Pierre Balmain dress from Shrimpton Couture. She committed to the glamorous retro theme with red Christian Louboutin pumps and a Les Petits Joueurs bag.

Shailene Woodley In Balmain – 2017 Hollywood Film Awards

The detail-laden, fierce sensuality of Balmain isn’t the first thing I would think to pair Shailene Woodley with so I was surprised by this choice.

The actress joined Dakota Johnson and Margot Robbie at the 2017 Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday (November 5) in Beverly Hills, California, wearing a Spring 2018 look from the designer.

Despite the unexpected choice, I was enamored by this sultry style on Shailene. It was a departure from her flowing, bohemian elegance but she carried off the fashion-forward mix beautifully. The sheer panels and textured bands were set off by the thick chain belt and black trim.

The two-tone bedazzled Christian Louboutin ‘Crystal Queen’ sandals echoed the different elements in her dress while chunky hoop earrings played up the powerful, glamorous feel.

What did you think of the ensemble?
