Janelle Monae In Moschino & Dsquared² – Roc Nation Pre-GRAMMY Brunch & Pre-Grammy Gala

Janelle Monae In Moschino & Dsquared² - Roc Nation Pre-GRAMMY Brunch & Pre-Grammy Gala

Janelle Monae attended both the Roc Nation Pre-GRAMMY Brunch and the Pre-GRAMMY Gala and Salute To Industry Icons honouring Martin Bandier on Saturday (February 7) in Los Angeles, California were the focus of both looks were her wide brim hats designed by Milner Gladys Tamez.

Roc Nation Pre-GRAMMY Brunch: The singer injected a rare touch of colour to her look via her red hat and red Swarovski clutch breaking up the monochrome-ness of her polka dot suit, which on this occasion was created by Moschino. I love that she took the dotage a bit further via her Rene Caovilla pumps. Doves by Doron Paloma ring, a Borgioni ring, and a Carrera y Carrera ring complete her look.

Pre-GRAMMY Gala: The second look was classic Monae. A sharp Dsquared2 suit with a bow tie was anything but classic. She always finds a way to make her staple feel fresh and new with unique twists. Guys could learn a thing or two from her. Styled with an Edie Parker clutch and silver strappy sandals, she once again completed her look with a red lip.

Janelle served up two great looks here, but I can’t help but fall for the fun nature of the first look.

Ciara In Zuhair Murad & Dsquared² – Essence 6th Annual Black Women In Music Event

Ciara In Zuhair Murad & Dsquared² - Essence 6th Annual Black Women In Music Event

With the theme of the night being ‘leg work’, Ciara attended two events on Thursday (February 5) starting with the Essence 6th Annual Black Women In Music event, then the Turn It Up For Change Ball.

Essence 6th Annual Black Women In Music event: The first look was a Zuhair Murad long-sleeve v neck wrap gown with embroidered floral cut-outs from the Spring 2015 collection. The laidback boho/gyspy vibe is something very new and welcome from Ciara.

Turn It Up For Change Ball: Her second look was a Dsquared² blue metallic long-sleeve pleated dress with bow and side slit which she opted to wear sans bra. The styling and grooming is well below par. The look screams I can’t really be bothered.

Still eagerly awaiting the return of her red carpet mojo.


Sophia Bush In Dsquared² – NBCUniversal 2015 Press Tour

Sophia Bush In Dsquared² - NBCUniversal 2015 Press Tour

Sophia Bush attended the NBCUniversal 2015 press tour held at the Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa on Friday (January 16) in Pasadena, California.

Last time out she was sweet but here she goes for sexy, wearing a Dsquared² green bustier cocktail dress from the Spring 2015 Capsule Collection with Casadei black suede pumps with the signature gold ‘Blade’ heel and an emerald-green Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch.

I love the streamlined silhouette and the detailed bodice, which heightens the sensual feel of this look, plus the complementary clutch.

It’s always a delight to see the ‘Chicago PD’ actress on top form.

Rita Ora In Dsquared² – The Voice UK Photocall

Rita Ora In Dsquared² - The Voice UK Photocall

Replacing Kylie Minogue for the fourth series, Rita Ora was officially unveiled as the new judge for ‘The Voice UK’ today (January 5) in London.

For the morning photocall with fellow judges Sir Tom Jones, and Ricky Wilson held at the Mondrian Hotel, the singer wore a Dsquared² Pre-Fall 2015 navy silk jersey thigh-high slit gown with chain and crystal embellished neck detailing.

Clearly wanting to make an impact, some might think this should’ve been save for her opening night, the Brits or the Grammys, but as we all know Miss Ora never does things by halves.

The look was complete with a slick back ‘do, cat eyes and, surprisingly, nude lips.

Too much for a morning photocall, or why the hell not?

I am going with the latter.

‘TrevorLIVE LA’ For The Trevor Project Red Carpet Roundup

‘TrevorLIVE LA’ For The Trevor Project Red Carpet Roundup

A trio of blonde beauties joined Kiernan Shipka at the ‘TrevorLIVE LA’ event for The Trevor Project held at the Hollywood Palladium on Sunday (December 7) in Los Angeles, California.

Katherine Heigl: The ‘State of Affairs’ actress wore a Kaufmanfranco velvety gown in a stunning sapphire hue, conservatively covered on top but not-so-conservatively slit to her thigh. Aside from that jewel-toned colour, her leg was the star of the show. She styled the look simply with a Rauwolf metallic-accented clutch and black lace Jimmy Choo ‘Award’ pumps, throwing her blonde llocks into a bouffant-style ponytail.

Sarah Hyland: The ‘Modern Family’ starlet paired her highlighted waves with a Dsquared Spring 2015 beaded, multi-colour frock accessorized with matching crimson accents courtesy of Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, a Rauwolf clutch and a bold lip. I wanted to love this fun mini, but something about it just didn’t quite come together for me with the heaviness of the hyper-embellishment.

Beth Behrs: Glitzing up the red carpet, Beth razzle-dazzled in a Naeem Khan Fall 2014 silver and gold dress with, what else, but Giuseppe Zanotti gold pumps. Platinum pin curls and a red lip had her all ready for the Roaring Twenties by way of Studio 54.

Rita Ora In Dsquared² – Band Aid 30 Single Recording

Rita Ora In Dsquared² - Band Aid 30 Single Recording

Rita Ora was spotted making her way to a studio in London, England on Saturday (November 15) to join a host of stars to record the Band Aid 30 single.

The now pink-haired singer garnered plenty of attention on arrival, wearing a bright red Dsquared² silk blazer and matching trousers from the Spring 2015 collection which she styled with a white bandeau and white adidas kicks.

I love how the suit is given an urban edge with the oversized trousers and the styling.

What’s also refreshing here is the lack of red lippie, instead opting for a glossy nude lip.

Red on red would’ve perhaps been too harsh and totally overkill.

07.11.14 Menswear, Premiere

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup


Here is a quick menswear roundup featuring three – one especially – very handsome fellas.

David Beckham: The former soccer star, who is now lending his bearded face to whisky, attended the press conference for Diageo Korea ‘Haig Club’ held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Wednesday (November 5) in Seoul, South Korea. Like Scotch Whisky, David gets better with age, looking oh so very handsome in his Ralph Lauren Black Label suit in dark navy.

Matthew McConaughey: The actor broke his Dolce & Gabbana run to wear a Dsquared² checked suit while attending the ‘Interstellar’ premiere held at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC on Wednesday. Methinks this is his best suit this week in terms of fit and style.

Eddie Redmayne: After a mammoth effort promoting their new movie, ‘The Theory of Everything’, Felicity Jones handed over the reins to Eddie, who was flying solo on the red carpet at the Smithsonian National Museum Of American History on Thursday (November 6) for the Washington, DC premiere wearing a Gucci suit. As we would expect, the colour is non-traditional, the fit is impeccable, the styling even more so, and the man is impossible to stop on this current form.
