Ellie Bamber In Chanel – The Serpentine Galleries Summer Party

Ellie Bamber joined the likes of Rita Ora at the star-studded ‘The Serpentine Galleries Summer Party’ on Wednesday (June 28) in London, England.

The actress looked positively divine in a short dress and sheer floor-length coat Chanel.

References to Ancient Greece permeated Chanel’s Resort 2018 collection, and this look, with its strappy sandals and gorgeous silhouette, is no different.

Ellie has kept true to the runway vision with bright blue shoes and a gold choker necklace adding some modern day edge to this look.

I particularly like the actresses’ tousled hairstyle which, although departing from the runway, brings her own English rose aesthetic to this ensemble.

This look is floaty but with a seductive edge, perfect for a celebrity summer party, wouldn’t you agree?

Rita Ora In Chanel – The Serpentine Galleries Summer Party

What we like / loathe / love (delete as appropriate) about Rita Ora, is that she’s never predictable.

On Wednesday (June 28), she was giving us gothic glam for The Serpentine Galleries Summer Party in London.

After her recent bright and bold appearances this dark, period-style Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 look was a shock, especially as she wore it to a summer party.

The velvet fluted sleeves, power-shoulders, and full skirt feel reminiscent of bygone years whilst a cat-eye flick and bold red lip are thoroughly modern styling choices.

I adore the open back, which provides some relief from all the black and the equally outrageous and intricate hair accessory which adds to the drama.

Were the white heeled shoe boots a touch too costume-like for this look?

Kaya Scodelario In Chanel – ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Tokyo Premiere

Kaya Scodelario attended the ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ premiere in Tokyo on Tuesday (June 20).

Rather than taking cues from the season, Kaya wore a navy lace Chanel gown with floral details to add plenty of intrigue.

Continuing with the slightly gothic undertones, Kaya paired her look with a smoky eye and wavy bob hairstyle.

I like the flared fishtail hem, but I’m wondering if this look have fared better if it were strapless?

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.
