2017 BET Awards Red Carpet Roundup

For better or worse, there were many more attention-stealing looks at the 2017 BET Awards in LA on Sunday night (June 25)—many of which garnered stares for all the wrong reasons.

Dascha Polanco: White-hot was the M.O. for the ‘Orange Is The New Black’ star in her Bishme R. Cromartie pantsuit. The plunge made it typically sexy, but that architectural ruffle was like fashion’s version of whipped cream on top.

Sasha Lane: The young starlet has not shied away from directional looks—or tribal makeup—and this Proenza Schouler Fall 2017 ensemble styled with a Sergio Rossi ‘SR1’ sandal and silver python Proenza Schouler ‘Curl’ clutch strongly continued in that experimental vein. Those who don’t love this look will likely only see trash bag-inspired pants. Regardless, I wish the sheer top had fit her better.

Tamar Braxton: To go with her platinum ’do, Tamar wore rhinestones and see-through lace in this Walter Mendez gown that won’t pass the test for those with sheer fatigue syndrome. Was anyone else getting a strong Cher vibe?

Gabrielle Union takes Menswear Spring 2018 Paris Fashion Week by storm

Gabrielle Union has taken the Menswear Spring 2018 edition of Paris Fashion Week by style storm, as she’s had more outfit changes than some models with a record seven looks and counting. Equally impressive, Dwayne Wade has been a style-forward partner-in-crime almost every step of the way.

Valentino Show: At the Valentino show on Wednesday (June 21), Gabrielle started off the whirlwind week with a relaxed note in a breezy, flowing Valentino Pre-Fall 2017 floral gown. Sure, it was a glorified maxi dress, but I was so pleased to see it without the runway’s sweater top. Plus, it translated beautifully on her. Dwayne Wade stood close by with his best, trend-forward attitude in place. He suited up in a Valentino plaid ensemble that was embroidered and chain-accented for additional edge. It was likely no accident that the three-piece suit’s plum-and-mint colour palette referenced Gabrielle’s dress.

Nieves Alvarez In Elie Saab – ‘Yo Dona’ International Awards 2017

Nieves Alvarez attended the ‘Yo Dona’ International Awards at the Palacio de los Duques de Pastrana on Monday (June 19) in Madrid, Spain.

This Elie Saab Spring 2017 sequin gown is evocative of disco nights and glamorous evenings.

I love the strategic placement of the star design which emphasizes the waist and the grown-up fairy-tale aesthetic which is imbued by the bright blue hue.

Some of you are over these embellished gowns, but for me Nieves breathes fresh life into the tried-and-true red carpet formula.

When I comes to Nieves’ Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and Yliana Yepez bag I feel they are perfectly complementary, however, I wish she’d taken cues from the runway and had some more fun with her accessories. That goes for the Bulgari jewels too.

10th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic Red Carpet Roundup

A number of other summer-ready stars joined Nicole Kidman at the 10th annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Saturday (June 3) in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Kendall Jenner: Geranium-chic is what Kendall was giving us in her adorable Dolce & Gabbana floral mini styled with a matching purse and scarf—plus a bit of ’70s funk with her white Stuart Weitzman ‘Clingy’ booties lest the mood get too precious.

Tommy Dorfman: I loved seeing this Vince Camuto look from Tommy, as it set a playfully exuberant, style-forward mood without going over the top. Pink shades, pink shoes and soles, and cropped, schoolboy trousers—he sold it to me.

Kate Mara: Innocently feminine with an undercurrent of sheer lace allure, this Burberry frock was light and lovely for the event.

Fan Bingbing In Elie Saab – Cannes Film Festival Press Conference

On the last day of Cannes Film Festival, Fan Bingbing attended a press conference dressed in Elie Saab.

We all know how petite the Asian actress is, but she was looking 6ft tall in this well-tailored one-piece.

Between the sleek cut and the flare trousers they really help elongate her figure, but I’m pretty sure she’s got some platform heels helping enhance this statuesque portrait.

De Beers jewels and wavy tresses completed her picture perfect look.

2017 amfAR Gala Cannes Model Roundup

The models were out in force for the amfAR Gala Cannes on Thursday (May 25) during the Cannes Film Festival.

Elsa Hosk: Striking a pose with a distinct pink, pinup mood, this Ermanno Scervino Fall 2017 gown had all the hallmarks of boudoir dressing with the exposed corset and sheer lace—distracting black heels notwithstanding.

Bianca Balti: What’s this? A model not baring it all? Bianca went for a more conservative stance in a Dolce & Gabbana black gown that oozed of old Hollywood glamour when styled with finger waves, statement jewels, and Gianvito Rossi shoes.

Joan Smalls: Between the length, the ubiquitous slit, and the collar-style neck piece, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this Elie Saab Spring 2017 Couture dress paired with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and gigantic hoop earrings. Hip-hop, tribal glam?
