Danai Gurira In Gabriela Hearst, Cushnie et Ochs & Loewe – Pre-Oscars Events

Danai Gurira lead up to Oscar weekend, saw her taking in three events following the success of her hit new film, ‘Black Panther’.

9th Annual Oscar’s Sistahs Soiree: Her first look came courtesy of Gabriela Hearst’s Spring 2018 collection. It was a smart two-piece look which was seemingly perfect for the event, however, it felt way too muted for Danai for my liking.

2018 Essence Black Women In Hollywood Oscars Luncheon: In fresh white with tactile black detailing, this sleeveless dress from Loewe’s Spring 2018 was elevated with the Gabriela Hearst ‘Charles’ block heels in a true Wakanda fashion.

Vanity Fair and Lancome Paris Toast Women in Hollywood: Things took a turn for the better in this Cushnie et Ochs Pre-Fall 2018 vibrant yellow look. I will always associate Danai with bold, beautiful hues. This fitted dress was positively radiant. Gold Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Ellie’ sandals completed her look.

‘A Wrinkle In Time’ LA Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

The Los Angeles premiere of Disney’s ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ on Monday (February 26) brought out the storybook romance in many lovely ladies.

Tessa Thompson: The ‘Westworld actress’ oozed retro elegance in an embellished Miu Miu dress. It’s clear she has considered the entire look, but I must say that the Judith Leiber clutch takes away from the diamantes on the gown. The Irene Neuwirth and David Yurman jewels were more harmonizing.

Tracee Ellis Ross: The ‘Black-ish’ actress was a beauty blooms in a Michael Kors Resort 2018 dress. The pleated style has a romantic fairy tale quality, but her styling gives it a fashion-forward finish. A Tyler Ellis clutch, pale pink boots and her cornrows elevate the look.

Oprah Winfrey: Va-va-voom! The multi-hyphenate looked sensational in a deep blue Atelier Versace number. She may not have gone the princess route, but I don’t think anyone will be complaining about this sultry number.

Aubrey Plaza In Cushnie et Ochs – 21st Annual NHMC Impact Awards Gala

I’ve always considered Aubrey Plaza’s red carpet style to be quite playful, so I was delighted to see her go glam for the 21st annual NHMC Impact Awards Gala on Friday (February 23) in Beverly Hills, California.

As you would expect, signature clean lines and fluidity are found in this white Cushnie et Ochs dress, but the draped overlays takes this into celestial goddess territory.

I would love to think metallic sandals were worn with this look as they would complement her drop earrings perfectly.

Touches of red amp up the glam factor.

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.

Lupita Nyong’o In Cushnie et Ochs, Gucci & Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Black Panther’ New York Promo Tour

As the ‘Black Panther’ promo tour starts to wind down, Lupita Nyong’o took to the red carpet on three occasions this week.

Black Panther Welcome To Wakanda New York Fashion Week Showcase: After a heavy dose of metallics in Seoul and London, Lupita was back to her colourful best in Cushnie et Ochs. I like the bold hue of her two-piece Pre-Fall 2018 look and the African-inspired styling, but I’m gonna struggle to forgive the length of those trousers.

Saoirse Ronan In Cushnie et Ochs – 90th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon

Saoirse Ronan attended the 90th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon on Monday (February 5) in Beverly Hills, California.

The ‘Lady Bird’ actress selected a pretty coral dress from the Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2018 collection that featured the label’s signature cutout detail.

I wanted to love this look on the premise of its radiant coral hue. However, I do wish the fit would have been a bit smoother in form.

Fuchsia Rupert Sanderson sandals offered a contrasting zing to the look with Ana Khouri earrings to top it off.

How does this Saoirse look fare for you?
