2017 Met Gala After-Party

Katy Perry hosted the Met Gala after party at The Boom Boom at The Standard in New York City in the early hours of Tuesday morning (May 2).

Elle Fanning: The young actress donned her second Miu Miu look of the night. I love how the looks starts out minimal in hue and cut before gathering in pace below the waist with an explosion of multi-colour feathers and embellished Christian Louboutin ‘Body Strass’ pumps. I’m imagining this would’ve looked amazing as a gown for the main event.

Kate Bosworth: Since the majority of you disliked Kate’s Tory Burch red carpet look, I won’t be surprised if you wished she’d worn her Emilio Pucci Spring 2017 boldly hued frock to the main event. It certainly would’ve had a greater impact.

Katy Perry: It was Katy Perry’s party and she will dress as ridiculously as she wants too. My only surprise is that she didn’t wear Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2016 Couture look with the runway helmet.

2017 Met Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Many more stars were at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Hailee Steinfeld: I love the deconstructed kimono edge of this Vera Wang design that was both playful and progressive. Hailee’s twisted top knot and winged eye liner likewise sold the look to me.

Dasha Zhukova
: Dasha softly echoed the theme with this red floral Proenza Schouler keyhole gown.

Olivia Cooke: Also wearing the colour of the night, Olivia donned a seductive red Burberry gown with boudoir lace that got creative in its asymmetry.

Haley Bennett In Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Couture – 2017 Met Gala

While we may have called out many a star for not exactly embracing the 2017 Met Gala’s avant-garde theme in honour of designer Rei Kawakubo, Haley Bennett will not be part of the guilty party judging by her look of the evening.

As she took to the red carpet on Monday (May 1) in New York City, she brought nothing short of an eccentric flower shop in tow.

Not content to only have an array of blooms embellished across her Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Couture period-style, lace gown, she wore an entire bouquet of faux florals atop her head.

While I want to applaud her for taking a bold fashion risk, there were several elements that were working against her thematic efforts.

The garish makeup being one; and her curled locks that had an ageing effect, being another. I probably would have lopped off the loose doily sleeves, too, to help restore the youthfulness to the look.

Zendaya Coleman In Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Couture – 2017 Met Gala

I expected something more avant-garde from Zendaya at the 2017 Met Gala, however, I wasn’t disappointed with her final look.

Not only did she go big with the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Fall 2015 Couture parrot print gown, but also with the fro’ cut in the style of Rei Kawakubo.

Bold, colourful and eye-catching – which isn’t easy on this red carpet – it’s a look I’m sure to remember.

Sofia Carson In Dolce & Gabbana – We Day California 2017


Sofia Carson was one of the featured guests at We Day California on Thursday (April 27) in Inglewood, celebrating youth empowerment.

Having some fun with her look, the young starlet channeled her inner flamenco girl with a Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2017 ruffled blouse paired with a colouful, metallic mini skirt.

Despite its spring season, the ensemble took a turn into fall for me with the burgundy Jimmy Choo pumps.

But, in the end, I think the proportions of the white blouse are what really put me off of loving the look on Sofia, as it just seemed a bit overbearing.

25.04.17 Menswear, Premiere

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

A few men showed their style colours recently on the red carpet. Here, a look at what they wore.

Dan Stevens: Dan was as dapper as could be in a sharp Bottega Veneta patterned suit with Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo’ shoes at the ‘Permission’ premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival in NYC on Saturday (April 22), where he joined Rebecca Hall. I love the mod movement that the graphic patterning of his suit provided.

Channing Tatum: With Jenna Dewan-Tatum close by, Channing also provided his own brand of eye candy in his version of a red-hot three-piece suit at the grand opening of ‘Magic Mike Live Las Vegas’ on Friday (April 21). The colour is one thing, but I think I would have found more affection for the look had the strangely dated, confetti tie been replaced.

Ben Affleck: The actor attended the first annual AutFest International Film Festival on Sunday (April 23) in Orange, California. While the rich teal-blue hue had potential, this Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit seemed a bit forced. I blame the high silhouette of the vest and the tie that fell askance. Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo’ shoes rounded out the look.
