Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Preview Party Red Carpet Roundup

Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Preview Party Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some of the other looks from the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Preview Party at the Royal Academy of Arts on Wednesday (June 4) in London, England.

Yasmin Le Bon: The model wore a pretty Christopher Kane white dress with light-green pleats from the Spring 2014 collection, which she styled with yellow pumps. The pink Christopher Kane clutch and bracelets were perhaps two steps too far.

Sai Bennett: The young British actress wore a black Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 silk dress with colourful star sequins. Not trusting the Great British weather, as she shouldn’t, she styled her look with a black leather jacket. Black pumps and Chanel fine jewelry completed her look.

Jaime Winstone: The actress wore a summery Kate Moss for Topshop white dress styled with a Vivienne Westwood necklace, Dolce & Gabbana floral-print wedges, Louis Vuitton clutch and Dolce & Gabbana embellished shades. The accessories are OTT, but this is true to her quirky style.

Joely Richardson: The British actress braved the mild weather donning a Temperley London Resort 2014 sleeveless dress with a pretty floral-print design.

Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane – The Duke Street Emporium Store Launch

Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane - The Duke Street Emporium Store Launch

Laura Carmichael attended the opening of the new concept store ‘The Duke Street Emporium’ on Wednesday (April 30) in London, England.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress wore her favourite designer, Christopher Kane, selecting a cropped black cashmere ‘Flower’ sweater featuring a lilac lace logo worn with a futuristic jacquard plasma-print skirt cut to a flattering A-line silhouette with glossy petal-shaped PVC pocket detailing.

Her look was pulled together with a quilted-sleeve leather biker jacket and platform sandals.

While Laura doesn’t instantly strike me as a Christopher Kane girl, she always manages to pull off the Scottish designer’s edgy pieces.

Does this look work for you?

Rihanna In Christopher Kane & Étoile Isabel Marant – Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets Playoff Game

Rihanna In Christopher Kane & Étoile Isabel Marant - Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets Playoff Game

Rihanna has become quite the basketball fan, taking her courtside seat on Sunday (April 27) to see the Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets playoff game held at Barclays Center in New York City with her BFF Melissa Forde.

The singer wore a sporty look for the occasion, donning a Christopher Kane camo-print dress from the Fall 2013 collection.

Camouflage prints are traditionally used to blend in; however, the singer stood out, with the leather buckle details of the dress joining the crop top and pleated skirt.

The look was styled with an Étoile Isabel Marant ‘Cypress’ varsity-style bomber jacket and Nike ‘Jumpman’ red and black sneakers to complete her sporty courtside look.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Emma Stone In Prada, Solange Knowles In Christopher Kane & David Beckham In Ralph Lauren Black Label

BDOTW 28 April

There were many great looks this week, but Emma Stone wearing Prada was the runaway leader with 49% of the votes.

I was totally swept away by Solange Knowles’ yellow and white Christopher Kane look. Not only for the lovely sunshine hue and hot-pink lip combo, but also for her interesting choice of accessories.

When it came to menswear we were in total agreement: David Beckham in Ralph Lauren Black Label.

Handsomeness aside, the former soccer star looked very dapper in his well-cut three-piece suit.

Solange Knowles In Christopher Kane – Q&Q Launch Event

Solange Knowles In Christopher Kane - Q&Q Launch Event

Solange Knowles attended the Q&Q launch event held at Open House Gallery on Thursday (April 24) in New York City.

Working a tangy look, the singer/DJ opted to wear her favourite colour in such a beautiful way I am longing to own each piece.

Starting with her Christopher Kane Resort 2014 elastic-panelled sweatshirt and pleated silk skirt, which she accessorized with a zesty Kate Spade New York ‘Via Limoni Lina’ bag and her favourite Acne Studios ‘Andrea’ metallic-silver pumps.

Add in that punchy pink lip and this is making its way to the BDOTW list.

She’s flawless and almost the only celebrity, alongside Jennifer Connelly, with a 100% red carpet record this year.

Solange never skips a beat.

Chloe Moretz In Christopher Kane – The Today Show

Chloe Moretz In Christopher Kane - The Today Show

Chloe Grace Moretz paid a visit to NBC Studios for a guest appearance on ‘The Today Show’ on Thursday (April 17) in New York City to promote her Broadway play ‘The Library’.

Selecting a look from Christopher Kane’s botanical-themed Spring 2014 collection, the actress wore a cashmere sweater in a fresh lavender hue with bold lace ‘Petal’ typography.

Breaking up the runway look, she wore a pleated skirt featuring carnation laser-cut graphics throughout in green, which created a double impact for this look: detail and contrasting colours.

Chloe added black-and-white Casadei T-bar open-toe ‘Blade’ sandals and flawless makeup to conclude her morning show look.

Should she have stuck to the runway styling, or do you prefer Chloe’s version of this Kane look?
