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?

Alessandra Ambrosio In A.L.C. & Elisabetta Franchi – Xti Summer 2017 Collection Launch

As the face of Xti Shoes, Alessandra Ambrosio was in attendance at the presentation of the Summer 2017 collection in Madrid, Spain on Friday (June 2).

While we are accustomed to seeing the supermodel in slit gowns and sizzling minis, here she took a more moderate approach in an A.L.C. ‘Mackie’ Top paired with Elisabetta Franchi Spring 2017 high-waist khaki pants.

Naturally, the pants were strategically cropped to show off her metallic sandals, with a loosely swept-back ’do and a red lip topping off the ensemble.

It was simple and refined, although not my favourite look as the fit of the trousers seemed a bit askance in some areas with the pulling of the fabric.

NYLON Young Hollywood Party


Pretty young things came out to play at NYLON’s annual Young Hollywood event, celebrating the May issue, on Tuesday (May 2) in LA.

Madeline Brewer: Wrapping herself up in a Natori bustier paired with Halston trousers, Madeline let the origami-obi belt do the work for this ensemble. A black Corto Moltedo clutch seamlessly melded into the look.

Rowan Blanchard: I love young Rowan’s fearless embrace of style, as she took the fanciful artistry of this Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2017 beaded lace dress into fashion-forward territory with her futuristic eyeliner effect and crystal embellishment under her eyes.

Emily Robinson: I have to applaud Emily for at least skipping the ubiquitous sheer lace and exchanging it for sheer latticework in this Shrimps Spring 2017 dress. While I could have given the dress a pass, I don’t understand the golden handbag and metallic heels.

Eva Longoria In Elisabetta Franchi – 2017 Billboard Latin Music Awards

Eva Longoria joined Jennifer Lopez on the red carpet for the 2017 Billboard Latin Music Awards held on Thursday (April 27) in Coral Gables, Florida.

Like Jennifer, Eva was dropping jaws, but for the wrong reasons.

While I love the Elisabetta Franchi Spring 2017 sharply tailored jumpsuit on the runway, it was a sad, sad mess on Eva. I want to cry for Elisabetta. I really do.

Like what the hell is going on with the trousers? Taking her cue from BFF Victoria Beckham no doubt.

Fabric dragging on the floor like that is so not elegant.

The jumpsuit doesn’t work with her proportions anyway, but I will have nightmares about those trousers.

I’m so exhausted from this rant I can’t even go in on the makeup.

Let’s pray she manages to turn things around before Cannes.

2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards Red Carpet Roundup

More stars were also in attendance at the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 25) in Santa Monica, California.

Danielle Brooks: The ‘OITNB’ actress took the plunge in an Urban Zen by Donna Karan wrap jersey tunic and pant, complemented by a body chain—as if enough attention wasn’t already directed to the girls.

Natasha Lyonne: The actress took a custom Creatures of The Wind rose and green floral dresses out for a spin. The pleated frock held promise, but I couldn’t see the forest for the trees given the clunky, distracting styling with the oversized white clutch and ivory boots.

Anna Diop In ASOS & Elisabetta Franchi – ’24: LEGACY’ Premiere Event

Anna Diop attended the ’24: LEGACY’ premiere event on Monday (January 30) in New York City.

The actress ushered in a new mode of elegance wearing an ASOS tabard with Elisabetta Franchi trousers and Cesare Paciotti shoes.

This is such a cool look. Everything about it seems effortless and well put together.

I’m taking notes.
