2015 Met Gala Roundup

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

A flurry of even more bold names descended on red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), where their colourful variety of looks only contributed to this year’s fashion extravaganza.

Anna Wintour
: As the gala co-host, the ‘Vogue’ editor-in-chief dressed thematically (for her, anyway) in a Chanel Spring 2015 Couture gown featuring dimensional, all-over poppy embroidery, which had been lengthened from the runway’s original shorter version. She should have maintained her signature cap sleeve, as the flower petal statement shoulders translated as a bit cumbersome, despite their inherent artistry.

Bee Shaffer: Like her mother, Bee also found inspiration in flowers, opting for a mahogany blossom gown by Alexander McQueen. I much preferred this look to Anna’s, especially with the enchantment of the beautifully embroidered Chinese cranes that alighted down the back of the dress.

Rose Byrne In Calvin Klein Collection – 2015 Met Gala

Rose Byrne In Calvin Klein Collection - 2015 Met Gala

Rose Byrne went editorial for her turn on the 2015 Met Gala red carpet tonight (May 4) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The actress was dressed by Calvin Klein, and wore an intricate custom gown that offers quite a few double-take moments.

I love a dress that offers a surprise once you see it upclose, and this one offers about 10. What appeared to me to be florals and lace from afar, turned out to be leather with circular cut-outs and beads–and I can honestly say I’ve never seen a dress like this before.

A windblown bob and shimmering pink eyeshadow and lips are a fun pairing with the dress, and I love that there is a lot of joy in each aspect of the look.

‘The Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ London Premiere Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

‘The Avengers Age Of Ultron’ London Premiere Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

A trio of handsome counterparts joined Scarlett Johansson and Elizabeth Olsen for ‘The Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ premiere at Westfield on Tuesday (April 21) in London, England.

Chris Hemsworth: The actor, who was BDOTW last week, was looking mighty fine again in a azure Calvin Klein Spring 2015 two-button notch lapel suit that nearly matched his eyes. I loved the striking yet simple pop of the Calvin Klein Spring 2015 royal-purple silk tie and stark white dress shirt. Brown Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo’ loafers rounded out the ensemble.

Chris Evans: Opting for a darker colour palette, Chris wore a Gucci three-piece plaid suit with a striped baby-blue button-down and brown tie. I wish the shirt had been a solid white in this case, but I do love that he seems to be wearing bright magenta socks.

Jeremy Renner: He and Chris Hemsworth were near mirror images of each other with similarly hued blue suits and the same Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo’ shoes. jeremy wore his look with a black dress shirt and tonal blue tie, avoiding complete matchy-matchy territory. However, I favour Chris’s lighter approach on this occasion.

Lupita Nyong’o In Calvin Klein Collection – 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Lupita Nyong'o In Calvin Klein Collection - 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Hollywood’s golden girl Lupita Nyong’o attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party held at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress wore her second Calvin Klein Collection custom dress of the night, stepping on this red carpet in a sleek beaded column creation.

I love that she opted for very few jewels to allow her breath-taking dress to take center stage, with just a dark berry lip rounding out the look.

While the dress is gorgeous, it took me back to Jennifer Lawrence’s Vanity Fair moment, and Naomie Harris’ Cannes moment which were ironically both custom designs by Francisco Costa.

Lupita Nyong’o In Calvin Klein Collection – 2015 Oscars

Lupita Nyong'o In Calvin Klein Collection - 2015 Oscars

Lupita Nyong’o was also among the stars at the 2015 Oscars at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (February 22) in Hollywood, California.

Her custom Calvin Klein Collection pearl and ivory beaded dress was eye-catching from afar, mainly due to its unique keyhole halter front and strap detailing at the back.

But even more compelling was a closer shot of the design, in which the full extent of its beautifully pearlized embellishment comes into view.

As per usual, she accessorized this masterwork regally with complementary pendant earrings, soft metallic makeup and a crimson lip.

Sienna Miller In Calvin Klein – Calvin Klein Fall 2015 Show

Sienna Miller In Calvin Klein - Calvin Klein Fall 2015 Show

Usually there is a packed celeb front row at Calvin Klein, however, this season the honour went to Sienna Miller, who was perched next to Anna Wintour at Spring Studios on Thursday (February 19) in New York City for the brand’s Fall 2015 show.

The British actress, who made her Broadway debut in ‘Cabaret’ earlier this week, wore an all-white – sans the heavy platform shoes – Pre-Fall 2015 Calvin Klein Collection ivory leather patchwork jacket and knit dress.

Bare legs aside, this look strides forward with a wintery impression. I love this for its effortlessness and the cool-girlish charm Sienna brings to the table.
