Blake Lively In Brandon Maxwell & Oscar de la Renta – Good Morning America

Looking outside my window, it feels like the end of the world is nigh, such is the threat of heavy rain storms and grey skies, so thank god for Blake Lively who brightened up my day en route to her guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ today (October 16).

Much like Margot Robbie; a bold, arresting hue was used to enlivened the GMA viewers as she wore a canary-yellow Brandon Maxwell Spring 2018 flared outfit which she styled with blue platforms.

I love the retro, carefree spirit of this uber chic look. This is the Blake Lively I know and love. But I can’t help feeling that her faux Lob would’ve looked so cool with this outfit.

Blake’s second look is one we instantly associate with her: glamour. And all before 10am.

The pop-art inspired look is a study in sultry detailing, from the fitted body, cascading drape and sequin embellishments.

As always, I’m hard pressed to select a favourite, as both have outstanding qualities.

Which look captivated you the most?

Gigi Hadid In Brandon Maxwell & Nina Ricci – Messika Cocktail Party & PFW Sighting

Like her sister Bella, Gigi Hadid has also been out and about in Paris, attending the Messika Cocktail Party on Wednesday (September 27) before later showing off her street style.

Messika Cocktail Party: She used this striking white Brandon Maxwell Spring 2018 plunge gown as the blank canvas for those stunning Messika jewels. This look presented so sleekly, with its minimal glam appeal, even if that centre slit seemed to cut a bit high.

Paris Fashion Week Sighting:
From all white to all black, she flipped the script in this Nina Ricci Fall 2017 maxi dress. The casual, flowing design, with the added peek-a-boo sultriness of the lace bra, was no doubt a comfortable way to walk the city—with those lug-sole boots echoing that sentiment while imbuing a tougher edge to the look. The dress was previously worn by Rihanna in New York City.

Jane Fonda In Brandon Maxwell – 2017 Emmy Awards

I’m sure I won’t be the only one who found Jane Fonda to be nearly unrecognizable at the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 17) in LA.

We generally sing the praises of the iconic actress for her ability to so seamlessly rock gracefully mature and appropriate looks that compromise nothing in the way of style.

But, that wasn’t exactly the case at the Emmys.

Opting for a hot-pink Brandon Maxwell Spring 2018 gown that showed off her streamlined figure, she walked on a far more flirtatious side, with the emerald Gismondi 1754 earrings and reverse necklace adding even more extravagance.

In addition to the Barbie pink hue, it was really the Barbie blonde bangs and ponytail that made the look uncharacteristically try-hard and youth-seeking for the traditionally sophisticated actress.

Jimmy Choo metallic-silver pumps and a Tyler Ellis clutch completed the surprising look.

What do you make of it?

3rd Annual Diamond Ball Benefiting The Clara Lionel Foundation Red Carpet Roundup

Glamour was the name of the game at the 3rd Annual Diamond Ball Benefiting The Clara Lionel Foundation. Stars sported their most sumptuous gown at the event on Thursday (September 14), joining Cardi B., Beyonce and host Rihanna.

Emily Ratajkowski: The model left me feeling underwhelmed with her vintage Chanel gown from Shrimpton Couture. There was plenty of cleavage and the slightly off-center buttons down the corset were unique, but they didn’t make a lasting impression.

Imaan Hammam: Proving that simplicity can be captivating was Imaan in Brandon Maxwell. The gown’s colour and cut took center stage, combined with the Dutch model’s incredible curls.

La La Anthony: Going for pure drama, La La lit up the grey carpet in Yousef Aljasmi. With so much shimmer and fringing, she was wise to tone down her beauty look, but I would have preferred all her hair swept up into the bun.

Emma Roberts In Brandon Maxwell & Thai Nguyen Atelier – ‘Who We Are Now’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere & HFPA & InStyle TIFF Party

Emma Roberts is another one lighting up the 2017 Toronto Film Festival, where she attended the ‘Who We Are Now’ premiere on Saturday (September 9) and the HFPA & InStyle TIFF Party later that day.

‘Who We Are Now’ Premiere: Proving that white still works in the fall, Emma opted for a Brandon Maxwell Fall 2017 dress. She added interest to the minimalist frock with embellished Chloe Gosselin ‘Helix’ pumps and a mini Stalvey Beauty case. The black ankle-strap shoes coupled with the white dress created a modish vibe, but the case feels slightly disjointed, especially when it covers the frock’s hem.

HFPA & InStyle TIFF Party: Emma continued to let her long pins remain the focus, donning a Thai Nguyen Atelier Resort 2018 dress. Given the amount of fine detail in the frock, she pared back her accessories. Simple black ankle-strap heels completed the ensemble along with tousled hair and a flick of eyeliner. The dress’s fit is fantastic, but I would have preferred a straight hem as the cutouts distract from the mesmerizing work in the bodice.
