Jhene Aiko In Chanel – 2 Fish Poetry Book Signing at Barnes and Noble

Jhene Aiko stepped out at for her second ‘2Fish: (A Poetry Book)’ signing at Barnes and Noble on Tuesday (February 20) in Los Angeles, California.

Some might say that a black maxi dress is a bit much for a book singing, but I’ll give it to the singer as there is a casual elegance to her Chanel Resort 2018 gown.

The flowing skirt and trim have a bohemian grace with lends itself well to the occasion and her personal style.

The wrong accessories could have killed it, but her minimalist approach was spot on.

The CFDA, WWD & Variety Celebrate Runway To Red Carpet Initiative

To celebrate the inaugural launch of the Runway to Red Carpet initiative, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Variety and Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) hosted a star-studded luncheon on Tuesday (February 20) at the Chateau Marmont, which was sponsored by Karma Automotive.

A range of starlets were in attendance. However, if you had just looked at their ensembles, you’d never know they were at the same event—so diverse were their modes of dress.

Olivia Munn: I like the sunny outlook of this Veronica Beard Spring 2018 warm-weather-ready suit set, with the drawstring detailing adding an element of feminine allure. Obviously, the shorts didn’t stand up so well to the creases from sitting.

Lea Michele: Opting for a more romantically feminine offering, Lea wore a Zuhair Murad floral gown with a ruffled peplum. I can imagine this dress looked very pretty in the garden outside.

January Jones: I appreciate the directional, urban-forward mood the actress was setting with this Off-White Resort 2018 look—complete with that slick-back ponytail. However, I know the deconstructed, pinstripe skirt will have many saying it looks as if she wrapped a bolt of men’s shirting material around her waist.

Saoirse Ronan In Chanel – 2018 BAFTAs

Saoirse Ronan looked like an ethereal beauty when she stepped out at 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England, alongside Leslie Bibb and Rebecca Ferguson.

The ‘Lady Bird’ star, who is nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role, showed her support for the Time’s Up movement in a black Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 dress.

The long-sleeved style was practical given the chillier temperatures, plus, the decorative top created such a contrast against the sheer skirt.

Many have been fatigued with unlined skirts, but as an entire look this feels fresh.

I’m sure there will still be some who will wish to see the skirt removed and the frock worn as a mini, but there is a dark elegance to the longer length. Had it been short, it would have lacked formality required for the event.

Jimmy Choo shoes and bag and Cartier jewels completed the darkly romantic look.

Chanel & Charles Finch Pre-Bafta Dinner

Lovely ladies celebrated awards season at the Chanel and Charles Finch Pre-Bafta Dinner at Mark’s Club on Saturday (February 17) in London, England, where they were outfitted in charming Chanel pieces for the occasion.

Tessa Thompson: The BAFTA Rising Star Award nominee looked sweet in a Chanel Spring 2018 ensemble with its white and yellow tweed evoking a cheerful summer sentiment. The jovial mood was kept up with her twisted topknot, white shoes and red lip.

Poppy Delevingne: The model also embraced the designer’s signature fabric with a seafoam and pale blue Spring 2018 ensemble. The silhouette and chevron seams are quiet details so it was wise of her to not overdo the accessories. Like Tessa, her high updo added youthful fun to the tailored pieces.

Greta Gerwig: The ‘Lady Bird’ director, who is nominated for best Original Screenplay at the BAFTAs, swept me away with her Chanel Spring 2018 dress. It’s playful with the tinsel-like fringing creating captivating dimension. My only gripe is the black shoes feel a bit heavy against the rest of the ensemble.

Margot Robbie In Chanel Couture – EE British Academy Film Awards Nominees Party

Margot Robbie stepped out at the EE British Academy Film Awards nominees party on Saturday (February 17) in London, England, joining Caitriona BalfeGugu Mbatha-Raw and Anya Taylor-Joy.

She is nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role and her Chanel Spring 2018 Couture dress has a celebratory feel.

The white tweed is enlivened with frothy fringing decorating the hems and neckline. The whimsical charm was enhanced with the softly flared skirt.

The high pockets were another sweet addition, which she gamely showed off.

She has worn Chanel to a couple of awards season events so it will be interesting to see whether she picks the designer again. Given the ethereal sophistication of this look, I hope she does.

Caitriona Balfe In Chanel – EE British Academy Film Awards Nominees Party

Caitriona Balfe opted for monochromatic separates at the EE British Academy Film Awards nominees party on Saturday (February 17) at Kensington Palace in London, England alongside Kate MaraNatalie Dormer and Anya Taylor-Joy.

I must say that when I first glanced at the photo, the ‘Outlander’ actress reminded of Bella Hadid when she had a wispy bob.

That’s where the comparisons end as the Irish actress’s Chanel Pre-Fall 2018 outfit is very much in her wheelhouse.

Rather than a skirt, she channeled the sharpness of a tuxedo with a white halter top and black flared pants.

It’s a shame about the creases. I’m willing to overlook those as that is the nature of the fabric, but I wish the trousers had been shortened to the length on the runway so we could have really appreciated that dramatic flare.

Ellie Bamber In Chanel – Dunhill & GQ Pre-BAFTA Filmmakers Dinner And Party

Ellie Bamber joined Lily James for the Dunhill & GQ Pre-BAFTA Filmmakers Dinner and Party on Thursday (February 15) in London.

It’s hard to miss the integration of chic whimsy into this Chanel Pre-Fall 2018 design that offers a new look at sheer in the wispy skirt—thankfully worn with the leggings underneath.

I love how it all echoed the label’s classic nostalgia in the textural tweed coupled with embellishment and Chanel accessories whilst simultaneous presenting forward-looking, youthful modernity.

Did you miss the runway’s embellished shoes for a final flourish?
