The Hollywood Reporter 6th Annual Nominees Night Red Carpet Roundup

Along with Greta Gerwig, many more stars were at The Hollywood Reporter 6th Annual Nominees Night on Monday (February 5) in Beverly Hills, California.

Kelly Marie Tran: When I saw this Georges Chakra Fall 2017 Couture confection on the runway, it was like a fashion fantasy. While I appreciate the lining, I do think it lost a bit of its lightness and magic as a result. I also was missing the embellished bodice detailing.

Timothee Chalamet: Intentionally or not, the young actor’s Gucci Resort 2018 forest-green suit was the perfect match with the thematic colour of the evening. It was also the perfect reflection of his casually refined style with the tailoring and T-shirt combo.

Betty Gabriel: Going completely girly, Betty donned a retro-inspired Sachin & Babi Spring 2018 frock that reminded me of a play on a poodle skirt—with embellished lips to replace the pups. I do think it would have been more successful had it been shortened to tea length.

90th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

The 90th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon on Monday (February 5) in Beverly Hills, California saw more stars in attendance along with Saoirse Ronan, Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie.

Laurie Metcalf: While many attendees opted for shorter frocks, Laurie went for a long Temperley London gown that featured a striking metallic pattern. Yet, it was geared more to an evening red carpet. Pierre Hardy ‘Blondie’ sandals completed her look.

Allison Janney: I like the rich, inky colour of this Georges Chakra Couture Fall 2017 dress. It’s the illusion neckline and side cutouts that offer a less modern element.

Sally Hawkins: I think the extra-roomy proportions of this dotted Rosie Assoulin Spring 2018 ensemble created more of a loungewear vibe than was likely intended.

Jaimie Alexander In Georges Chakra Couture – 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards

Jaimie Alexander isn’t afraid to make a bold statement on the red carpet. She turned heads again at the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday (January 11) in Santa Monica, California.

The ‘Blindspot’ actress was clad in a Georges Chakra Fall 2017 Couture dress.

You might be doing a double take as she styled the gown almost identically to the runway version, selecting ankle-strap Chloe Gosselin platform shoes, Sylva & Cie jewelry and a voluminous updo.

I’m not going to hold it against her because the accessories work. The feather-decorated high-low hem needed a weighty shoe to balance it out.

It’s a lot of look, but she succeeded in carrying it off. It appears almost effortless.

Gina Rodriguez In Georges Chakra Couture – ‘Ferdinand’ LA Screening

Gina Rodriguez was at the LA screening of ‘Ferdinand’ on Sunday (December 10).

What often strikes me about the actress’ style is how she shifts from sultry to sweet statements.

Opting for the latter this time around, she charmed in a Georges Chakra Fall 2017 Couture embellished gown that had a sense of girly fun along with the intricacy of its design.

The rich palette of colours and feathery wisps of embroidery were the statement-makers of this dress.

I did slightly miss the original above-the-ankle silhouette, as I think it added a bit of panache to the proportions. But, that would be a nitpick to an otherwise lovely look.

3rd Annual InStyle Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The 3rd Annual InStyle Awards on Monday (October 23) in Los Angeles, California brought out numerous stylish ladies donning their most head-turning ensembles.

Angela Sarafyan: The ‘Westworld’ actress put a darker twist on a princess silhouette in a Georges Chakra Fall 2017 Couture gown. The black trim and the darker tulle layers lent an edginess to the full skirt. An Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch and Chloe Gosselin ‘Narcissus’ sandals played up the moody vibe.

Demi Lovato: Bringing a sultry elegance to a lavender Alice + Olivia Spring 2018 gown, the ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ singer toughened up the slip dress with a white studded belt and Leticia Linton ring. If I have to nitpick, I would have liked to see the dress a few inches shorter and a more formal belt.

Kelly Rowland In Georges Chakra Couture – 3rd Annual InStyle Awards

Kelly Rowland appeared to take inspiration from Andrea Riseborough for the 3rd Annual InStyle Awards on Monday (October 23) in Los Angeles, California.

Like Andrea, Kelly opted to wear over-the-knee boots with her Georges Chakra Spring 2017 Couture gown.

The majority weren’t impressed with Andrea, and I feel Kelly’s interpretation will be viewed even less favourably as her virginal white dress and red thigh-high boots seem at odds with each other.

My objection isn’t that she wore the boots, its more the colour of the boots. Pink, yellow, blue or lavender would been preferred.
