Laura Carmichael In Erdem – Three Empire Awards

Laura Carmichael was also at the Three Empire awards on Sunday (March 19) in London alongside Ella Purnell and Anya Taylor-Joy.

Perhaps inspired by the flirty appeal of this girly, bubblegum-pink hue, she wore an Erdem Pre-Fall 2017 embroidered dress.

Generally, a peplum-style silhouette is meant to be flattering, but here the extra fabric at the waist and hip fell a bit awkwardly.

I would also say her dark sandals somewhat weighed down the dress, however, the opposite was true for her beauty look which was a fresh, natural finish.

Felicity Jones In Erdem – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Following the main event, Felicity Jones second look on Sunday (February 26) was presented at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar party.

Always a fan of interesting and ladylike silhouettes, the actress stayed true to her style in an Erdem Fall 2017 dress.

The deep and glittery shade of the gown is perfect for the evening; however, I am left feeling slightly underwhelmed – even with all those sequins.

Do you love the look, or do you also feel like something is missing? I’m leaning towards the latter.

Alfre Woodard’s Sistahs Soiree

The 8th annual Oscar’s Sistahs Soiree, presented by Alfre Woodard and Farfetch, was held on Wednesday (February 22) in LA.

Ruth Negga: Continuing to celebrate a vintage aesthetic that we’ve seen earlier this year from her, the ‘Loving’ actress paired her studded Erdem Pre-Fall 2017 dress with a Simone Rocha faux fur stole. The bubblegum-pink Stella Luna pumps were a surprise, adding an element of quirkiness to the look. But I would have kept them red to match the embroidery on the stole and her lip.

Tessa Thompson: Delivering Rodarte’s unique brand of intriguing femininity, this Spring 2017 ruffled dress relied on an interesting mix of textures, polka dots, and flounce. Like the frock or not, the minimalist styling was on point until the ankles. The flashy gold platforms compromised the dark charm.

Viola Davis: Working her side angles, the actress posed in a black cutout dress with a swirling overlay. A bright pop of colour for the lip would have added another layer of vibrant impact here.

Allison Williams In Erdem – Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Showing off her new blonde ambition, Allison Williams stopped by the ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ on Tuesday (February 21) in New York City.

Blondes may have more fun, but you wouldn’t exactly know it by her ensemble.

While the periwinkle-blue hue of the Erdem Resort 2017 dress was lovely enough, everything else about the look—from the all-over lace, to the updo and the earrings—was rather aging to the beautiful, young actress.

And those harshly out-of-place black pumps didn’t help matters at all.

There are ways to do freshly sophisticated without venturing so far into overly mature territory. I cannot wait to see her have more fun with those platinum locks.

Thandie Newton In Erdem – 2017 Elle Style Awards

Thandie Newton attended the 2017 Elle Style Awards on Monday (February 13) in London.

The floral fantasia we expect from Erdem made way for decorative, colourful embroidery which reflected beautifully in the light on Thandie’s two-piece Pre-Fall 2017 look.

With Thandie’s hair taking away the focus from her BAFTAs gown, she opted for a chic top knot on this occasion.

Like Felicity Jones, I much prefer this second look. This feels so much more relaxed and in keeping with Thandie’s usual style.

Kate Bosworth In Erdem – Photocall of the World Premiere Screening of BBC One’s ‘SS-GB’

Kate Bosworth attended the photocall of the world premiere screening of BBC One drama ‘SS-GB’ today (January 30) in London.

My first reaction to Kate in this Erdem Spring 2017 dress was; I wish it was sleeveless.

Had it been, I think this look would’ve had less of a ‘playing dressed up in mummy’s clothes’ vibe.

Anyone else share this feeling?

Arzano jewels and a black accessories including Tabitha Simmons ‘Lula’ velvet pumps and Christian Louboutin ‘Traviata’ clutch completed her look.

Laura Carmichael In Erdem – Variety’s Celebratory Brunch


Laura Carmichael attended Variety’s Celebratory Brunch on Saturday (January 28) in West Hollywood, California.

Sometimes geometric patterning creates optical illusions that flatter the figure. But, with this Erdem Resort 2017 dress, the visual math just wasn’t adding up.

Reminiscent of seersucker, the frock’s textural fabric and flounce skirt had a shortening effect on the actress—even without the Victorian neck piece seen in the designer’s original presentation.

Not even Loeffler Randall ‘Arbella’ ankle-strap platform sandals could elongate the look.
