Ruth Negga In Chanel – ‘Preacher’ Season 2 Premiere

Ruth Negga brought old Hollywood glamour to the premiere of AMC’s ‘Preacher’ Season 2 in LA on Tuesday (June 20).

There was something nostalgic about the flapper style fringing and feathery details on this Chanel Fall 2017 gown which I found very charming.

Ruth’s decision to team her dress with simple Chanel Fine Jewelry was a good one. The sequin embellishments on the dress, which are echoed on the Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Ellis’ sandals, are eye-catching enough.

I particularly love the actress’s gorgeous makeup and hair styling. Pure perfection, wouldn’t you agree?

Tilda Swinton In Chanel – ‘Okja’ Seoul Premiere

For the Seoul premiere of ‘Okja’ today (June 13), Tilda Swinton kept things ultra chic with an astronauts emblazoned chiffon dress from Chanel’s Fall 2017 collection

I like how the cinched waist and puffed sleeve details added a feminine touches without nullifying any of the mystic that comes with a Tilda Swinton look.

Adding a pop of colour via her brick red lipstick was welcome, but I kinda wish she would have incorporated more otherworldly metallics to reflect the vision behind Chanel’s collection.

What do you think of the look?

Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Preview Party

Wednesday (June 7) played host to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition preview party, a highlight of London’s social calendar which attracted a plethora of style savvy stars.  I was delighted that many summery frock were on display, despite the not-so summer weather.

Zawe Ashton: There was something very 1920s about Zawe’s Roksanda ‘Hillevi’ dress in glorious bubblegum pink satin. Sleek finishing touches were added with a Roksanda ‘Besa’ bag and Roksanda ‘Dana’ shoes.

Florence Welch: Sticking to her signature bohemian style, the singer kept things colourful with a Gucci Fall 2017 ensemble. Black and pink floral prints made way for a ruby red Gucci clutch and cream Gucci boots, both emblazoned with the designer’s definitive animal symbolism.

Katherine Jenkins: The singer chose a monochrome Nedo by Nedret Taciroğlu piece for the occasion. While I liked the lace detailing, the belt seemed ill-fitting to the look.

Jessica Chastain In Chanel Couture – ‘In The Fade (Aus Dem Nichts)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Aiming to be the golden girl of the night again, Jessica Chastain was back on the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘In The Fade (Aus Dem Nichts)’, while fellow juror Fan Bingbing was at the ‘L’Amant Double (Amant Double)’ premiere.

I have to say I wasn’t complete sold on this Chanel Couture gown until I saw the back.

Much like her Prada look yesterday, the open-back gives this look a different, fresher dimension.

While it’s not on par with her other looks during this festival – especially the Armani Prive, this is a beautiful look which almost possesses a regal air, but that could just be the woman herself.

Piaget jewels and a simple ponytail completed the look.

2017 amfAR Gala Cannes Model Roundup

The models were out in force for the amfAR Gala Cannes on Thursday (May 25) during the Cannes Film Festival.

Elsa Hosk: Striking a pose with a distinct pink, pinup mood, this Ermanno Scervino Fall 2017 gown had all the hallmarks of boudoir dressing with the exposed corset and sheer lace—distracting black heels notwithstanding.

Bianca Balti: What’s this? A model not baring it all? Bianca went for a more conservative stance in a Dolce & Gabbana black gown that oozed of old Hollywood glamour when styled with finger waves, statement jewels, and Gianvito Rossi shoes.

Joan Smalls: Between the length, the ubiquitous slit, and the collar-style neck piece, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this Elie Saab Spring 2017 Couture dress paired with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and gigantic hoop earrings. Hip-hop, tribal glam?

Nicole Kidman In Chanel – amfAR Gala Cannes

Nicole Kidman has been on a chic streak of BDOTW success at the Cannes Film Festival, so my hopes were high for her entrance at the amfAR Gala Cannes on Thursday (May 25).

While she did take us on a flight of fancy in a Chanel Couture Pre-Fall 2017 gown that didn’t skimp on the feathered frou, this heavier look won’t rank as one of my top picks for her at Cannes.

With the sharply bold shoulder, the dress featured an intense silhouette that walked a line of darker mystere than her previous looks. That’s perfectly fine, but not when styled with such a severe bun that led to an ageing effect.

The pink belt did help lighten the mood, with Harry Winston jewels rounding out the look.
