Hammer Museum Gala In The Garden

The Hammer Museum Gala in the Garden was hosted on Saturday (October 14) in LA, with a crush of beauties in attendance—and all outfitted in one of the night’s leading supporters, Bottega Veneta.

Emmy Rossum: Looking nearly impossibly elegant, Emmy stunned in a Fall 2017 gown that beautifully shimmered with its gunmetal metallic plisse design. I love how her red lip and refined waves imbued another element of classic allure to the striking look.

Priyanka Chopra: I liked the softer palette of this Bottega Veneta Spring 2018 ensemble, but the creamy-white pumps let the look down.

Sarah Jessica Parker: This Resort 2018 gown was a rather subdued look for the likes of SJP.

Amal Clooney returns to work in Bottega Veneta

After giving birth to twins in June 2017, the human rights lawyer returned to work—and to her elegant classics.

She made a notable red carpet appearance at the Venice Film Festival recently, but I have to say that her workwear excites me almost as much as her evening ensembles. Clad in warming shades from the Bottega Veneta Pre-Fall 207 collection, Amal appeared ready for work and fall.

The skirt suit and tie blouse’s rich red colours were contrasted with a tan Michael Kors Collection Bancroft large leather satchel and neutral heels that perfectly matched her skin tone.

Did you miss her refined workwear?

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The men didn’t take a break this weekend either, with the 2017 Toronto Film Festival summoning many of them to the red carpet—plus a few other occasions.

Bill Skarsgard: At the ‘It’ Stockholm premiere, Bill wore a tweedy, printed Bottega Veneta suit that he enhanced with the deep navy dress shirt. I just wish he had buttoned the top button of his jacket.

Alan Cumming: At the ‘Battle of the Sexes’ TIFF premiere on Sunday (September 10), Alan showed off his quirky style in a Stella McCartney double-breasted pinstriped suit. The tapered pants didn’t really do the look any favours, and I generally have the same reaction to men’s platform shoes as I do to women’s—being.

Aubrey Drake Graham: At ‘The Carter Effect’ TIFF premiere on Saturday (September 9), the entertainer dressed up in a Prada ensemble that was emboldened by its aubergine palette.

HFPA & InStyle TIFF Party Roundup

More femmes flaunted their style at the HFPA & InStyle TIFF Party on Saturday (September 9), joining Emma Roberts, Greta Gerwig and Jess Weixler.

Jessica Chastain: The actress took a flirty turn in an Elie Saab Resort 2018 embroidered in swirls of colour; a cleavage-forward look that proved that sexy and sweet can go hand in hand.

Margot Robbie: I loved the retro-mod, rock-star-chic vibe of this Saint Laurent Fall 2017 mini that brought maximum impact via the signature bold shoulder and crystal embellishment to an otherwise minimal LBD.

Dianna Agron: Despite the deep plunge, there was a quietly sophisticated allure that permeated this Schiaparelli gown that featured an ever-so-faintly transparent skirt. This is the kind of sheer I can fully get on board with.

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Monse & Bottega Veneta – The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

Maggie Gyllenhaal gave us a double dose of sophisticated looks whilst making an appearance on ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ to promote her new series, ‘The Deuce,’ on Tuesday (September 5) in New York City.

Entrance: While heading into the ‘Late Show’ set, she wore a Monse Resort 2018 black dress that was no ordinary black dress. I was crushing on its nod to edginess in the unzipped cutouts at the shoulders and thigh juxtaposed with the feminine flutter hem. Rust-hued velvet pumps proved an interesting step towards fall.

‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’
: With the velvet heels still in play, Maggie changed into a Bottega Veneta Fall 2017 dress for the show and its aftermath. The look had an alluring, languid ladylikeness that wasn’t shy in boasting its vintage sensibility.

She was two for two as far as I’m concerned. What say you?

Lake Bell In Bottega Veneta – ‘Shot Caller’ LA Screening

Lake Bell attended the screening of ‘Shot Caller’ on Tuesday (August 15) in LA, serving up a 40s style dress from Bottega Veneta’s Fall 2017 collection.

The desert-rose hue is beautiful on Lake, as is the silhouette of the dress which presents a glamorous feminine look with structured polish.

My issue is her hair. The ponytail feels a bit lazy for such a classic look.

A chic chignon sans bangs would’ve been preferred.

Gunmetal accessories including Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Penelope’ pearl sandals provided the finishing touches.
