Emmy Rossum In Carolina Herrera – 2017 Met Gala

Emmy Rossum was also in attendance at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Leave it to Emmy to bring the ultimate sense of mod yet refined elegance to the proceedings with this Carolina Herrera masterpiece.

I love how the whoosh of the extravagant flourish and train at the side elevated the minimalist spirit of the fusion look. From one side, it was a flowing white gown; from the other, a study in menswear-chic tailoring.

All together, it was a sleekly sophisticated moment with Emmy’s low bun, sparkling jewels, and red lip only adding to the perfect style equation.

harper x Harper’s BAZAAR May Issue Event Red Carpet Roundup

Other starlets joined Emily Robinson for the harper x Harper’s BAZAAR May Issue Event on Wednesday (April 26) in LA.

Laura Marano: I love the colourful vibrancy of this Balmain bandage-inspired dress. What I didn’t love so much was Laura’s slicked-down hair and heavy makeup, as this beauty approach was too forced and mature for the bright young actress.

Debby Ryan: With a fresher outlook, Debby was darling in a sky-blue patterned Carolina Herrera frock styled with a silvery-gray Edie Parker clutch, only leaving me to question why not echo a silver or blue shade in her shoes?

Victoria Justice: She covered off on every era in this ensemble—from her ’70s-inspired sparkling sequin PrettyLittleThing ‘Sharlie’ mini, to a hole-dotted denim jacket that could have been ripped straight from the ’90s, and Lucite heels hearkening back to the ’80s. And, despite its OTT essence, she surprisingly wore it with a sense of relaxed ease.

Variety Power of Women Event Red Carpet Roundup

Blake Lively wasn’t the only power female at Variety’s Power of Women: New York event on Friday (April 21) in New York City, as other leading femmes were also in attendance.

Jessica Chastain: As an honoree of the evening, Jessica dressed for the occasion with chic sophistication in a Carolina Herrera embellished dress with playful tied sleeves. As the actress looks so good in colour, I’m glad she wore a vibrant mulberry lip, with silver metallic pumps adding more zing.

Katie Lee: You won’t find any objection from me with the bold, bright nature of this Proenza Schouler lily print frock. I do wish she had more sleekly completed the look with a stronger makeup look and a pulled-back hairstyle.

Salma Hayek: Salma went for a classically reserved Balenciaga ensemble with elongating stripes. But, I do wish she had worn a sandal instead of the patent black pumps to further the effect.

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.
