Emma Roberts In Diane von Furstenberg – 2017 Met Gala

Emma Roberts turned the blue carpet red at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a red Diane von Furstenberg gown with an accompanying pink DVF stole, red and pink handbag and Monique Péan jewels.

Let’s start with the good, shall we? The classic silhouette and color and impeccable fit of the gown are stunning. I’m delicate lace accents at the straps and hemline are also simply superb. However, I’m afraid the pink stole and the pearl handled bag are just too much together and officially make Emma look like a Barbie. You can’t unsee it now, can you?

I’ve always loved what a hair color chameleon Emma is, and brunette may be my favorite color for her. I also love the choice of the mauve matte lipstick with a red gown.

I can’t wait to hear though–is it just me, or does she look like Met Gala Barbie?

Allison Williams In Diane von Furstenberg – 2017 Met Gala

‘Girls’ star Allison Williams attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a fluid white Diane von Furstenberg gown

For me, this gown ties in to the theme with its yin and yang nature: The whole thing has a duality I’m loving. It’s understated, yet completely statement-making. It’s fluid yet structural; it’s feminine with a touch of masculinity in the tux-inspired bustier. In short, an editorial dream!

I’m also absolutely swooning over this hair and makeup effect on Allison, since she so often goes much  more subdued than this. The over-the-top cat eye is almost campy, but stops just short of ‘going there’, and the result is something fun and daring for the actress.

What are your thoughts on Allison’s look?

Skai Jackson in Diane von Furstenberg – 9th Annual Shorty Awards

Skai Jackson attended the 9th Annual Shorty Awards on Sunday (April 23) in New York City.

From the waist up, the starlet was the picture of girly youthfulness in her simple, ruffled top and pretty lavender eye makeup. But, she lost me at the Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2017 wide-leg trousers.

In theory, the fold-over waist and colourful racing stripes should had made these pants a stylish shoo-in.

But, the execution just wasn’t there with the rumpled creases and the cuffs that made for a strange, blocky leg line. Would you agree?

You may remember that Tracee Ellis Ross wore these same trouser earlier this month.

2017 DVF Awards

The 2017 DVF Awards took place on Thursday (April 6) at the United Nations Headquarters in New York with plenty of stars decked out in DVF.

Kate Bosworth: Drenched in highly polished, couture-grade micro sequins, this colour-block Diane von Furstenberg Pre-Fall 2017 is utterly resplendent. The only downside was the out-of-place wooden clutch.

Tracee Ellis Ross: Had it not been for the poor fit and the creases, this DVF Spring 2017 look would’ve been a winner.

Allison Williams: Going the uber sophisticated route, the ‘Girls’ actress was my favourite of the bunch. I just love the timeless quality of her Fall 2017 look with the old Hollywood glam styling.

Freida Pinto In Diane von Furstenberg & Temperley London – The Today Show & SiriusXM

Freida Pinto continued making the rounds as part of her ‘Guerrilla’ promo tour, with stops by ‘The Today Show’ and SiriusXM Studios on Tuesday (April 4) in New York City.

The Today Show: I was immediately drawn to the brilliant combination of colour and print in this Diane von Furstenberg Pre-Fall 2017 form-fitting design. The additional kaleidoscope hues by way of the heels wasn’t exactly necessary, though, as the dress was powerful enough. But I do appreciate her willingness to colour outside the lines and go beyond a basic black pump.

SiriusXM: With a completely different outlook on pattern, this Temperley London Spring 2017 frock featured a youthfully summery, folk-inspired mood with a pretty palette of shades. I did find myself missing the artfully spirited mix of textures between the embroidered top and woven skirt seen on the runway, which gave the look its style-forward, cool-girl edge.
