Lupita Nyong’o In Elie Saab Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

I was most looking forward to seeing Lupita Nyong’o at the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18), following her hot streak from her ‘Black Panther’ promo tour, and she didn’t let me down.

Many of you are bored with the standard Elie Saab Couture gown decked out in feathers and sequins, so this ‘Game of Thrones-esqe’ medieval gown should come as a refreshing change.

I had always pictured this look for Gal Gadot, as the look screams ‘warrior queen’, but the tougher side to the classic Elie Saab woman translates beautiful on Lupita, as no one does regal elegance quite like she does.

Andrea Riseborough In Elie Saab Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Andrea Riseborough made quite the entrance at the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England, joining Natalie Dormer, Margot Robbie and Naomie Harris.

The actress, who is presenting this evening, went back to the archives for a dress that supported the Time’s Up movement. She was outfitted in an Elie Saab Fall 2016 Couture gown.

The designer is known for his highly embellished, ethereal gowns, but this one had a moodier sentiment from the satin skirt and the dark colour palette.

The sheer top being accented with purple and ivory embroidery had a romantic mystique that was balanced by the drama of the sweeping skirt.

It’s regal yet seductive, so the only thing throwing me off slightly is the piece-y, wet-look hair.

Lupita Nyong’o In Elie Saab & Ralph & Russo – ‘Black Panther’ Seoul Press Conference and Premiere

Before the London premiere on Thursday, the cast of ‘Black Panther’ headed to South Korea to promote the film in Seoul today (February 5).

Press Conference: Some might look at this Elie Saab black and gold lurex sweater and matching pleated skirt and feel a bit underwhelmed, but that’s probably because we’re so used to seeing the actress in bold colours. I love how the pleats create drama with every sway and that we’re seeing a variety of styles from Lupita during this promo tour. Jewels from EFFY and Sara Weinstock, plus emerald Christian Louboutin ‘Booton MJ’ velvet pumps accessorized her look.

Tessa Thompson In Elie Saab – ‘Black Panther’ World Premiere

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ star Tessa Thompson showed her support for Marvel Studios’ world premiere of ‘Black Panther’ on Monday (January 29) in Hollywood, California.

We’re so used to Elie Saab’s glamorous dresses, but on this occasion he conjures up another fantasy with this tunic paired with beaded cigarette trousers from the Pre-Fall 2018 collection.

I love the contrast between the delicate tunic with the ultra modern dazzling trousers. I immediately felt that the look feels so refreshing from Elie Saab while not stepping too far away from the norm.

Christian Louboutin ‘Nosy’ pointy toe pumps, a Roger Vivier velvet ‘Cigarette’ bag and jewels from Sara Weinstock and Graziela Gems completed her look
