Katherine Langford In Dion Lee – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Katherine Langford made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Friday (May 12) to promote her Netflix series ’13 Reasons Why’.

Australian actress wore a look from Dion Lee’s Spring 2017 collection which encapsulates the collection’s emphasis on pared-back elegance through the simple ribbed top and pleats cascading from waist to hem.

I love how the punchy pumps and lip combo keeps the look decidedly youthful and upbeat.

Irene Neuwirth jewels completed her look.

Gabrielle Union attended the Ulta Beauty Miami Experience on Sunday (May 7) in Miami, Florida.

She was promoting her new line of Flawless by Gabrielle Union hair products, and this Dion Lee Fall 2017 ensemble proved the perfect accompaniment to her own beautiful locks.

The look exuded a youthfully relaxed mood, with the punchy, colourful camo print of the high-low skirt offering up plenty of exuberance.

Naomi Scott In Preen, Burberry, Dion Lee, Giorgio Armani & Chanel – ‘Power Rangers’ Promo Tour

Naomi Scott is currently in the spotlight due to her busy week promoting her new film ‘Power Rangers’.

Mexico City press conference: On Wednesday (March 15) the actress wore a Preen ‘Peggy’ dress from the Spring 2017 collection styled with silver sandals. I love how the asymmetrical hemline gracefully concludes this LBD with contemporary flare.

Build Series to discuss ‘Power Rangers’: This carefree, yet stylish seasonal look saw Naomi mixed a Burberry blouse with a Dion Lee top, Rebecca Bjornsdotter ‘Idun’ boots and Elizabeth and James ‘Lania’ earrings on Monday (March 20) New York City. The Dion Lee skirt stands out here as I like how this pleated style has been reimagined for the modern woman. Some might not like the heavy boots, but I think they compliment the skirt perfectly.

Gabrielle Union In Thakoon, Naeem Khan, Dion Lee & Alena Akhmadullina – ‘Sleepless’ LA Premiere & ‘Being Mary Jane’ Promotion

While all the Golden Globes fanfare was going on, Gabrielle Union was impressing on another set of red carpets, first attending the premiere of ‘Sleepless’ on Thursday (January 5) in LA followed by the ‘Being Mary Jane’ premiere screening and party on Monday (January 9) in New York City. She kept the fun style vibes alive and well while out the following day, where she stopped by ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ at the Ed Sullivan Theatre.

‘Sleepless’ LA Premiere: This shimmering Thakoon gown had the two P words working for it: plisse and plunge—two trends that are having quite a moment, cropping up everywhere lately. I loved how she worked the twirl skirt on the red carpet, showing off its beautiful drape.

‘Being Mary Jane’ New York Premiere Screening and Party: The actress channeled all the flower power possible in this happy Naeem Khan embellished frock, which she accessorized perfectly with Sophia Webster Rosalind crystal-heel satin sandals and a matching yellow clutch.

Toni Collette In Dion Lee – ‘Krampus’ LA Screening

Toni Collette In Dion Lee -  'Krampus' LA Screening

Toni Collette attended the screening of ‘Krampus’ held at ArcLight Cinemas on Monday (November 30) in Hollywood, California.

People often ask me how do I identify looks.

In this case it was the emerald-green hue which trigged my memory that this was a Dion Lee Fall 2015 look, along with the cut-out overlay which were two distinctive traits of Cara Delevingne and Michelle Dockery’s red carpet looks by the same designer.

This look could’ve come off as overly complicated with so much detail, however, Toni’s simple styling and effortless nature ensured this was a look with BDOTW potential.
