Emily Robinson Loves….White Dresses

White is the new black for up-and-coming starlet Emily Robinson, who’s seemingly never met a white dress she doesn’t like.

What makes her frequent choice of the colour so successful is that, despite the monochrome mood, each and every frock is quite varied as can be seen in the mix of silhouette, styling, and textural dimension in three of her recent looks.

Look 1: With this Carolina Herrera dress, she maintained the epitome of both youthful innocence and ladylike sophistication, with the effortless statement only enhanced by the subtle glitz of embellished metallic heels.

Look 2: A frilled Red Valentino frock was all about schoolgirl charm married with a side of all-grown-up allure.

Look 3: With a nod to the girly lace for which the Self-Portait label is known, this dress ensured plenty of visual interest with its mix of patterns and textures—all topped off with ankle-tie Stella Luna sandals.

You may remember that we even saw the actress’s affinity for white dresses early on, with a floral-printed white look at the 2015 Emmy Awards.

Has she left you inspired to start the spring season on a white note?

Jessica Chastain In Peter Pilotto & Carolina Herrera – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon & ‘The Zookeeper’s Wife’ Washington Screening

I have always loved Jessica Chastian in bold colours, especially her favoured colour electric blue; so I find myself a bit disappointed by the dark run of late.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: I have no complaints about this Peter Pilotto jumpsuit, as the just off the shoulder detail and artful colourful blooms add a dash for a personality.

‘The Zookeeper’s Wife’ Washington Screening: On the other hand this Carolina Herrera Spring 2017 tuxedo-style dress fell really flat for me. My first thought was that the look failed because of the grooming as the dress looks good on the runway, but I’m just looking for excuses as we all know Jessica can do way better than this.

2017 Oscar Parties Roundup

The 2017 Oscars party circuit was in full tilt with so many other style darlings in attendance at both the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party and Elton John’s AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (February 26). Here, a roundup of additional looks from the star-studded evening.

Emily Ratajkowski: Glitz and glam feathers both played a sultry game in this Jonathan Simkhai Fall 2017 plunge gown.

Priyanka Chopra: Speaking of glitter, Priyanka’s black Michael Kors Collection gown would have just been a standard black dress had it not been for the blitz of sequins.

Sia: I had to do a double-take with the singer’s custom Giorgio Armani cantaloupe-hued suit, as the nude-coloured lining provided a strange effect that made her hat-topped head almost appear to be floating.

‘Big Little Lies’ Red Carpet Roundup

We’ve already seen many stars at the premiere of HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’ on Tuesday (February 7) in Hollywood, California, and here are a few more that joined the list.

Ava Phillippe: ‘Like mother, like daughter’ was the case for Ava and her mom Reese Witherspoon, where the starlet likewise donned a look brimming with feminine yet contemporary edge. I love how her Haney Fall 2017 floral frock was both girly and refined, especially when paired with those corresponding metallic Jimmy Choo ‘Lucy’ pumps.

Kathryn Newton: The actress’s Red Valentino Pre-Fall 2017 tulle dress had a daintiness of form that was sweetly innocent yet maintained a chic edge through the lavender and gray palette that played beautifully with her eye colour and strawberry blonde waves.

Anne Heche: While the midnight-blue and black colour palette was a slightly more serious one, this Carolina Herrera frock featured a ladylike, flared silhouette that still offered a sense of youthful, flirty fun.

Janelle Monae In Carolina Herrera – 2017 Producers Guild Awards

Seeing Janelle Monae’s stratospheric rise in the past few months has been truly inspiring. And all done without comprising herself or her style.

At the 2017 Producers Guild Awards on Saturday (January 28) in Beverly Hills, California, she was of course decked out in black and white.

I love how the Carolina Herrera Spring 2017 design is fairly minimal, but the look is amplified with stripes for dramatic appeal.

Emerald jewels and a Roger Vivier clutch completed her look.

Wouldn’t be funny if she wears black and white throughout awards season, then wears a colour like pink or yellow to the Oscars?
