2018 Oscars & Oscar Parties Menswear Roundup

Many of the men brought their A game to the 2018 Oscars and Oscars parties, including the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in California.

Chadwick Boseman: The ‘Black Panther’ star continued his reign of sartorial power in this Givenchy Haute Couture suit that was inspired by a full look in the Spring 2018 collection. However, I love how he made the long, embellished jacket his own—sleekly styling it with black shirting and trousers and the zipper-accented shoes.

Donald Glover: This Gucci tux such a handsome-luxe approach with the velvet jacket taking it to the next level in partnership with the relaxed-suave appeal of the slipper shoes. A David Yurman ring completed the look.

Tom Holland: Sometimes double-breasted jackets can come across as a bit contrived, but I love how Tom wore this Hermès suit so sharply. It was a standout on the Oscars red carpet with his Piaget watch adding that final touch.

2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet Roundup

The crush of beauties continued in full force on the red carpet of the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party last night (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California.

Odeya Rush: The young starlet was a vision in this neon-bright chartreuse Vivienne Westwood Couture gown. The sculptural, one-shoulder ruffle detail is nothing we haven’t seen before, but the bold colour made the look feel dynamic. I do think she could have offered up a more youthful beauty look—and less bronzer—to accompany the sophisticated sass of the gown.

Dree Hemingway: There was a delicate daintiness to this Valentino Pre-Fall 2018 nude, embellished lace gown, which Dree echoed in her minimal hair and makeup. The yellow-tinged, ribbon belt made all the difference in breathing a bit of life into the neutral dress, with Repossi jewels to complete the look.

Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of memorable looks at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California.

Karolina Kurkova: Look closely at the Czech model’s Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 suit as the fabric has a marvelous texture that’s flecked with sparkles on the collar. It might not have been the loudest look, but it was unique and nice to see another pants option.

Darby Stanchfield: The ‘Scandal’ actress celebrated floral and fauna with her Teresa Helbig gown. Unfortunately, there were too many opposing elements between the print, sequins, sharp neckline and the sparkling bag. I can see some saying it’s a lesser version of Gucci.

Petra Nemcova: The philanthropist and model struck a pose in a sunny Celia Kritharioti gown. It was a well-executed look with her waves echoing the ruffled shoulder detail. The red lipstick and high slit added allure to the cheerful fabric.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Giorgio Armani – EE British Academy Film Awards Nominees Party

Gugu Mbatha-Raw was another lovely lady who opted for a shorter silhouette at the EE British Academy Film Awards nominees party on Saturday (February 17) in London, England. She joined Caitriona BalfeKate MaraNatalie Dormer and Anya Taylor-Joy.

The BAFTA presenter brought some vibrancy with a Giorgio Armani Spring 2018 dress.

The knee-length number had a lovely feminine charm from the way the bright watercolour print melded with the black banding.

The style brought a smile to my face and made me look forward to springtime, yet it didn’t feel out of place on the red carpet.

A Chanel clutch completed the cheerful outfit.

2018 NFL Honors

In advance of Super Bowl LII, the 2018 NFL Honors were held on Saturday (February 3) in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with a trio of stars each donning their own distinct variations on the colour black.

Ciara: She may have had thigh-high boots on underneath, but this sheer lace Uel Camilo gown was still plenty transparent. I’m sure I won’t be alone in putting this in the sheer-fatigue category, to which the exaggerated keyhole did nothing to help the cause. Nor did her double side buns, which seemed a strangely girlish way to round out an overtly sexy look. Hueb diamond earrings and a Djula diamond ring added some sparkle.

Emma Roberts: While I can appreciate the more classic sophistication of this Armani LBD, it felt almost like an afterthought—and the creases didn’t help. Her hybrid stiletto booties were an intriguing element, though, with Jennifer Meyer jewels, Chloe Gosselin shoes and a Lee Savage clutch to accessorise the dress.

Lea Michele: Also braving the cold with bare legs, Lea donned an Ashi Studio Fall 2017 design that married tuxedo dressing with a boudoir robe-inspired appeal. It may be a more expected Lea look, but she wore its relaxed glamour well with EFFY Jewelry, Melinda Maria Jewelry, and a Tadashi Shoji clutch.
