Who Wore Dsquared² Better? Jennifer Hudson or Alesha Dixon?

Jennifer Hudson and Alesha Dixon both wore this Dsquared² marigold dress within a month of each other.

Jennifer lit up the Tiffany & Co. 2017 Blue Book Collection Gala, while Dixon wowed the ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ audience.

This is a classic case of how accessories can make or break a look.

Jennifer’s black over embellished pumps were so wrong for this look, while Alesha going for gold – both in her accessories and her makeup – saw her bring home the trophy.

amfAR Paris Dinner 2017

The amfAR Paris Dinner was hosted at the Grand Palais on Sunday (July 2), and it certainly served up an eclectic array of looks.

Cindy Bruna: Statuesque and striking, the French model was a study in sleek simplicity in a Dsquared2 gown that looked to sharp tailoring and a mode of Le Smoking sensibility for inspiration. I love how the belted waist fully celebrated the structured sophistication with de Grisogono jewels adding a touch of sparkle.

Noemie Lenoir: Alternatively, there was no place for minimalism in this French model-actress’s Jean-Paul Gaultier Fall 2016 Couture ensemble. I was delighted to see this look stripped down from its original runway presentation, as the glittery sequin split tunic top and foliage-embossed pants were plenty decorative enough.

Sarah Snyder: Creating her own sexy, mod superheroine vibe out of this Fendi Pre-Fall 2017 high-low dress, Sarah styled the frock with what can only be called fierce Fendi over-the-knee boots that did reflect the red textural fabric on the underside of the skirt. Or, should we call it a cape.

Harper’s Bazaar Summer Party (Fiesta 150 Aniversario de Harper’s Bazaar)

A whole host of fashionable and famous figures descended on Harper’s Bazaar 150th anniversary party at Casa de Velazquez on Wednesday (June 28) in Madrid, Spain.

Raquel Sánchez-Silva: The journalist showcased the cyclical nature of style as she donned a Gucci Spring 2017 gown previously worn by Cate Blanchett back in October. It’s easy to see why the ladies wanted to wear this gown; the gorgeous ruffled shoulders bring to mind petals whilst the red bow belt adds yet more intrigue. I love Raquel’s sleek up-do which allows the look to shine to full effect. However, her choice of clutch cheapens the look.

Paz Vega: Looking incredibly polished and chic, the actress opted for a midnight-blue Dsquared gown featuring an open back dress which gave this ensemble a sophisticated yet seductive vibe.

Nieves Álvarez In Celine, Dsquared2, Silvia Tcherassi & 7 For All Mankind – San Isidro

Nieves Álvarez attended the San Isidro Fair in Madrid, Spain over the weekend.

We may be accustomed to seeing Nieves in scene-stealing red carpet looks, but her street style takes no back seat to fashionable fanfare.

For the Spanish festivities, she first wore a Celine striped shirt with DSquared2 cropped jeans. I loved how the loosely draped cut of the top put a feminine twist on standard shirting. Her accessories really brought the look to life with the pop of a red Louis Vuitton handbag, embellished Elie Saab Spring 2017 sunglasses, and blue Marskinryyppy ankle-wrap heels.

For her second outing, her shoes even more so stole the show, as this Aquazzara pair added a bold splash to the otherwise neutral look. I wasn’t as crazy about the slouchy fit of her Silvia Tcherassi shirt although the asymmetric cold shoulder was a nice touch. White 7 For All Mankind skinny jean, aviator shades, and a Bulgari clutch completed the look.

Alesha Dixon In Dsquared² – Britain’s Got Talent

Before stepping into the hot seat to judge contestant on Britain’s Got Talent’ last night (May 30), Alesha Dixon showcased her look on Instagram.

Known for her experimental style and love for colour, this yellow mini Dsquared² dress was on trend with the gorgeous ruffle and in season with that glorious yellow hue.

Dsquared² are known for their dramatic silhouettes and maximal shapes, yet this bold choice may still be considered as one of their tamer options.

Alesha amped up the look with tribal mask inspired Loewe earrings, Saint Laurent gold pumps and additional jewels from Paula Mendoza.

J’Adore from head-to-toe.

‘Baywatch’ Berlin Photocall

The promo tour for ‘Baywatch’ continued in Berlin, Germany, where the three main ‘Baywatch’ beauties were in attendance at the film’s photocall on Tuesday (May 30).

Priyanka Chopra: Channeling a girly, pretty mood, Priyanka wore a white lace Marc Jacobs frock styled with Schutz shoes and Nirav Modi jewels. The slight high-low hemline with the extra lace in the back seemed to translate a bit oddly, like the hemline was cut incorrectly.

Alexandra Daddario
: I was a bit confused by Alexandra’s dsquared2 dress, which could have held potential if it wasn’t for the deep plunge and the booties that placed it firmly into the fall season—and quite far away from any beach vibes.

Kelly Rohrbach: Kelly kept it short and sassy in a glitzy, patterned Missoni Pre-Fall 2017 mini. A sandal would have fared better here than the pumps.

2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The men also had their moment at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday (May 7) in LA, with a range of experimental looks.

Zac Efron: The ‘Baywatch’ hunk may have been in all-white, but that didn’t keep this ensemble from having an edgy attitude. The holographic sheen of his jacket and the distressed, ripped denim made sure of that.

Brandon Flynn
: Tapestry took on a new, low-key meaning with this Saint Laurent Spring 2017 patterned bomber jacket from the women’s collection, styled with black denim and a John Hardy bracelet.

Tommy Dorfman: Apologies to Zara Larsson, but Tommy gets the prize for the real go-go boots of the night with these DSquared2 Spring 2017 designs. I really couldn’t take the rest of the look seriously if I tried, given that footwear. But, this Vivienne Westwood MAN Fall 2017 dudes-in-dresses moment certainly had enough chutzpah to compete with the glitter.
