Princess Eugenie Announces Engagement to Jack Brooksbank

So we now have two royal weddings in 2018, as Princess Eugenie of York and her long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank are set to wed this autumn.

The pair will marry at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle – the same venue where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will say ‘I do’ on May 19.

Mr Brooksbank, a wine merchant, popped the question in Nicaragua earlier this month and the happy couple released their official engagement photos yesterday (January 22).

Eugenie, who is eighth in line to the throne, wore a floral embroidered cap sleeve dress by her go-to label, Erdem with black satin heels from Jimmy Choo.

She proudly showed off her engagement ring – a padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds, which bears a resemblance to the one worn by her mother, Sarah Ferguson.

The question is who will design her gown?

There has been speculation that Meghan will wear Erdem because the actress and the designer share the Canadian/English connection, but I would imagine Princess Eugenie would want her favourite designer to create her dress.

It could be a very busy year for Erdem Moralıoğlu.

Nicole Kidman In Erdem – Casting Society Of America’s 33rd Annual Artios Awards

Nicole Kidman was one of the presenters at the Casting Society Of America’s 33rd Annual Artios Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday (January 18) in Beverly Hills, California.

Even thought there isn’t a full length picture, I was initially excited about this Erdem Spring 2018 gown, mostly because of the colour and those gorgeous cascading ruffles.

However, once splicing the pictures together, my eyes were drawn immediately to nude slip dress.

Both the tone and the length were unfortunately so wrong.

The length should’ve either stopped short at the opening at the front, or she could’ve gone the tonal granny panties and bra route, which I can’t see happening during my lifetime.

Natalia Dyer In Erdem – 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards

Natalie Dyer was one of the presenters for the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday (January 11) in Santa Monica, California.

Erdem’s romantic view of fashion and love for floral prints is beautifully celebrated Spring 2018 ‘Hael’ dress.

I don’t miss the tulle underskirt we saw on the runway, as I prefer Natalia’s more modern approach.

I would imagine some would want to pare-down the look with simple black sandals, so I love how Natalie’s opted to complement the waist detail and neckline with Sophia Webster ‘Lilico’ embellished sandals.

Narcisa Pheres diamond earrings and an Anabela Chan orion emerald ring completed the look.

Elisabeth Moss In Erdem – 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards

Elisabeth Moss took home the Best Actress in a Drama Series for ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ at the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday (January 11) in Santa Monica, California.

I know many of you are longing for Elisabeth Moss’ 2014 red carpet form to come back to the forefront, and when I look at this Erdem Pre-Fall 2018 dress I have to agree with you.

My problem with this look is that it feels a bit drab, which surprises me considering it’s. a. Erdem, b. it’s semi-sheer and c. it’s decked out with embellishments.

Styled with Irene Neuwirth jewels, Christian Louboutin ‘Decoltish’ velvet pumps and Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ clutch, this reads too mature before her time.

Andrea Riseborough In Erdem – British Independent Film Awards 2017

Andrea Riseborough joined a constellation of other stars at the British Independent Film Awards 2017 on Sunday (December 10) on Old Billingsgate in London.

As the platinum-haired British actress continues to redefine her chameleon-like style, she mixed the tough chicness of her blunt bob with the delicate femininity of this softly glinting Erdem Spring 2018 embellished, tiered design.

While her posture caused me some manner of pause for the look in general—and to wonder if the dress wasn’t about to just slide right down—I love how she melded the bold attitude encapsulated in her hot-pink lip with the petal-pink, vintage glamour of the design.

What about you?
