2015 amfAR Inspiration Gala Sao Paulo

2015 amfAR Inspiration Gala Sao Paulo

The 5th Annual amfAR Inspiration Gala took place at the home of Dinho Diniz on Friday (April 10) in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Naomi Campbell: As she did last year, Naomi wore a Givenchy Couture show-stopping piece. Decked out in feathers and red paillettes, this look is classic Naomi; bold and sexy while maintaining high-fashion allure. The look was accessorized with Harry Winston jewels.

Kate Moss: The supermodel, who co-chaired this event with Naomi, also wore a Givenchy gown. Hers was a beige chiffon and lace Pre-Fall 2015 number with tonal pailettes, styled with a rose-gold Givenchy clutch and Harry Winston jewels. Many words came to mind upon seeing the Great Kate in this dress, but the first one was no. This is quite unflattering. I’m not a fan of the bodice and I’m tempted to say the colour ain’t working, but that could just be because I’m so used to seeing her in all black.

Kylie Minogue: Following her performing at the event, Kylie was spotted wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2015 Couture hybrid dress. While I love the artistic nature of this piece, I don’t think it translates too well on Kylie. Someone with the sartorial style of Dita von Teese, or the statuesque presence of Karolina Kurkova would’ve sold this to me.

Amanda Seyfried In Givenchy & J Brand – The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Amanda Seyfried In Givenchy & J Brand - The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Amanda Seyfried visited ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ at TDS Studios on Tuesday (March 17) in New York City.

The actress edged up her daytime look by way of a Givenchy Resort 2014 printed dress paired with a J Brand ‘Aiah’ black leather jacket and black pointed stilettos.

I love the tough-chic spirit of the bomber jacket, but I also have a feeling the dress could have stood on its own with its flattering, figure-hugging shape and ruched detail down the centre.

Her pretty, long blonde strands softened up the look even if they got in the way of the more interesting statement shoulders of the blazer, while a smokey, kohl-rimmed eye fit right in to the femme edge.

Louis Vuitton Fall 2015 Front Row

Louis Vuitton Fall 2015 Front Row
The front row of the Louis Vuitton Fall 2015 show certainly faced no shortage of the usual LV-outfitted stars who all made Nicolas Ghesquière’s runway a must-attend during Paris Fashion Week in Paris, France.

Jennifer Connelly: Continuing to show off a new, softer side with her Louis Vuitton looks, the actress wore a feminine, printed velvet frock with a relaxed silhouette, cinched in for shaping by a skinny, brown leather belt. Gilded, gold-embellished shoes injected some of that more familiar edge to this ensemble, and I loved the pop of her berry lip for added oomph.

Fan Bingbing: Going for tough-luxe appeal, the Asian star teamed a gold-lined, black leather moto jacket with a sheer, white sweater and front-slit skirt. A range of accessories completed the look with a bit of ’80s-inspired excess, including statement earrings, round sunnies, rows of rings and a hand bracelet, a signature LV monogram shoulder bag, and platform cutout sandals—with blue nail polish, no less. She nailed an urban, street-style sensibility here.

Selena Gomez
: Playing with patterns, Selena took a sophisticated turn in this mixed print, prairie dress with a black accent belt. She completed the prim frock with a pair of black booties and a couldn’t-miss-it yellow handbag, which I actually loved as the youthful exclamation point to this pretty look.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Diane Kruger In Donna Karan Atelier & Rosamund Pike In Givenchy Couture

BDOTW 2 march

Red was the colour of the week as the majority of our favourites donned the colour on Oscar night.

Emma Stone’s 100% record of winning best dressed polls was finally broken by the one and only Diane Kruger, who took our breath away in a crimson Donna Karan Atelier jumpsuit.

After a truly lacklustre awards season, Rosamund Pike finally gave us something to smile about on Oscar night, wearing a stunning Givenchy Couture gown. Had she been an Olympic hurdler, this would’ve been her jumping the final hurdle before crossing the finishing line having knocked over all of the previous hurdles.

With Eddie Redmayne suppressing his love for colour and patterns this awards season, my favourite by far was David Oyelowo for standing out in his bold red Dolce & Gabbana, while you went for the classic elegance of the dashing Chris Pine.

2015 Oscars & Vanity Fair Party Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Oscar men

The men were out in force at the 2015 Oscars and the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where there was plenty of handsome inspiration to go around from a fine group of fellows.

Jared Leto: Getting the evening started on a non-traditional note, the actor and musician was every bit the unorthodox Academy Awards dresser in his baby-blue Givenchy tux, accented by a white bowtie and white lug sole shoes. He let his hair down literally and made no excuses for it, saying that the Oscars was his going-away party for his locks. I wonder if the beard was also included in that party. While no one could pull this off like Jared, between the mane and the male pastels, this was verging on almost too much too handle.

Chris Pine: A stark contrast to Jared, Chris went for the all-out traditionally classic route and suited up in a Giorgio Armani black double-breasted peak-lapel tuxedo. It was impeccable and goes to show what transformative power a well-tailored tux can have.

David Oyelowo: Looking as if he was inspired by the red carpet itself, the ‘Selma’ actor dressed to impress in a crimson Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo word with #TackleEbola handcrafted pin by Jason of Beverly Hills. He does a great job pulling off this colour, yet I’m not completely sold on the satiny look of the vest and bowtie underneath.
