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.

Jennifer Lawrence In Christian Dior Couture – ‘Red Sparrow’ London Premiere

Jennifer Lawrence was back on the red carpet following the BAFTAs, for the London premiere of ‘Red Sparrow’ at Vue West End this evening (February 19).

I was enchanted by her previous Dior Spring 2018 Couture look, but this one blew me away.

Her organza Couture ball gown embroidered with pale gold sequins might just be my favourite look from Jennifer since her ‘The Hunger Games’ LA premiere Prabal Gurung gown.

I adore the mix of colours, the vibrancy and the carefree boho feel amped up by the curls. She very much looked like she was in her element here.

Rose gold Sara Weinstock Isadora hexagon drop earrings completed her look.

Are you equally excited by this look?

2018 BAFTA Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Black gowns dominated the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England, but the red carpet was by no means boring with celebrities showing their support for the Time’s Up movement in a wide array of striking looks.

Letitia Wright: Showing a darker side of Gucci, the ‘Black Panther’ actress, who was one of the presenters on the night, looks charming in a belted dress. The bug-like embroidery perks up the black velvet base. Some have remarked how the brands looks sometimes suffer from too many details, but this one has the balance right.

Sally Hawkins: The Best Actress in a Leading Role nominee for ‘The Shape of Water’, shone in a Ralph & Russo gown. This is a more sensual look for her with the slashes in the bodice revealing a coquettish hint of skin. I wish she played into the theme more with romantic wavy hair.

Anya Taylor-Joy: Last year’s Rising Star Award nominee embraced the sexy glamour of Dolce & Gabbana in a black lace dress and golden crown. I can already hear the chants of people wishing the skirt was lined, and I must agree.

Jennifer Lawrence In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Jennifer Lawrence was of course in Dior Couture for the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18).

The union has had its ups and downs, but things have been nothing but plain sailing in recent times.

This was perfectly demonstrated by her Spring 2018 Couture black tuxedo gown featuring pale-pink stole sleeves embroidered with organza flowers.

On one had the look is classically timeless, yet on the other, it possesses contemporary vision.

I’m in total awe.

Kate Mara In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Kate Mara left us well and truly baffled by her red carpet choice for the pre-party, so I’m delighted to see her redeem herself for the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18).

Lining the bodice with the same hue as the skirt to ensure the look felt more cohesive was the right thing to do for this Christian Dior Fall 2017 Couture gown.

One could say that this is the true definition of “doing a 180”, as her gold jewels and Dior clutch perfectly complemented the gown enhancing the richness of it all.

If I wanted to find something to nitpick, I would say that I wish her hair had a bit more life to it. A chignon or a updo would’ve been preferred.

Kristin Scott Thomas In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Ever the regal lady, Kristin Scott Thomas stepped out at the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England, alongside Naomie Harris, Haley Bennett and Angelina Jolie.

The star, who is nominated in the Best Actress in a Supporting Role category for her work in ‘Darkest Hour,’ was a vision in a Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture ensemble.

The flowing style demonstrated the impact of a pared-back colour palette, with the slashes of white creating a flattering lengthening effect.

The vertical stripes also drew our attention to her face.

She completed the look with a Time’s Up pin affixed to her chest.

Emilia Schuele In Christian Dior – ‘Isle of Dogs’ Berlinale International Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Emilia Schuele joined Greta Gerwig for the ‘Isle of Dogs’ premiere which served as the opening ceremony for the 68th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany this evening (February 15).

She looked beautiful wearing a rust hued Christian Dior Resort 2018 bustier dress, which showcased modern romance.

Yes, there is a strong case of déjà vu here, but that boils down to this signature style having been worn in several guises since this collection was first presented, and the fact that this dress has already been worn by Juno Temple.

Is it time for Dior to shelved the Resort 2018 collection?
