Mary J Blige In Fendi & Gucci – 2018 Essence Festival

Mary J Blige started 2018 as an Oscar nominated actress, but this weekend she returned to her roots as a music performer for the 2018 Essence Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Convention Center – Day 1: It only takes a few celebrities to be photographed in classic designer logo items for them to become “trendy” again, and the power of logomania is very much focused on Fendi at the moment. While this look felt authentically MJB, I thought the shoes were a tad overkill. You may remember that Olivia Munn sported this same look recently.

Louisiana Superdome – Day 2: On Saturday (July 7) we saw the Yonkers Queen of Hip-Hop Soul reborn rocking a Dapper Dan custom Gucci logo three-piece leather look which she wore with custom red Giuseppe Zanotti open-toe booties. This takes me back to 1992 when the singer burst onto the scene with ‘What’s the 411?’ The labels may not have been Gucci, but the swagger and attitude are very much the same. Loving this iconic moment.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

It’s been a busy week when it comes to mens fashion, so here is our roundup.

Jared Leto: The ‘Thirty Seconds to Mars’ star made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ where he donned a Gucci Cruise 2019 look consisting of a technicolor sweater and fiyah red trouser. Let’s hope that bin bag contains some of his less fortunate red carpet looks.

Channing Tatum: The actor was recently in London to present ‘Magic Mike Live’. While I’m not usually a fan of cropped trousers on men, this Arcady pair was looking very sharp, especially when paired with his palm-print shirt. Timberland shoes completed his look.

Winston Duke: The one thing I wanted ahead of the 2018 World Cup was to get my hands on the Nigerian football kit (and my heritage is Sierra Leone), but the entire collection sold out in around 3 minutes. The Trinidadian American wore his Nike tracksuit, in true naija fashion with a gold chain plus high-top sneakers.

Beyonce Knowles Rocks Dundas, Gucci, Givenchy, Balmain & More For Her ‘On The Run II’ Tour

The ‘On the Run II Tour’ opened in Cardiff, Wales last week, where we were treated to another selection of eye-popping custom looks from Beyonce Knowles, who has enlisted the help of Claire Waight Keller for Givenchy, Gucci, Peter Dundas, Mugler, LaQuan Smith and Olivier Rousteing for Balmain.

In Glasgow she lit up the stage wearing a Dundas. While gold embroidered icon mini dress with front scarlet heart motif was very much expected, the purple silk gazar cape with gold alphabet embroidery gave this look a regal aura. The look was styled with the very popular Roberi & Fraud ‘Doris’ shades.

Hari Nef In Gucci – 2018 Fragrance Foundation Awards

Hari Nef joined Rita Ora and Nina Dobrev for the 2018 Fragrance Foundation Awards on Tuesday (June 12) in New York City.

Gucci’s Pre-Fall 2018 collection reinterprets the hippie movement with a new take on garments made in relaxed shapes of which this red sequin jumpsuit showcases.

However, I believe Hari is wearing a dress rather than a jumpsuit, which I think was wise considering the length of those trip-hazard trousers.

I love how she wore the looks ever so gracefully, without much fuss to allow the dress to be the centerpiece.

Front Row @ Gucci Resort 2019

The Gucci Cruise 2019 fashion show took place at the Promenade des Alyscamps in Arles, France on Wednesday (May 30), which saw a host of their official ambassadors and champions of the brand take their front row seats.

Salma Hayek Pinault: I have always maintained that I haven’t been a fan of runway Gucci for Salma, but this custom Gucci Prince Of Wales peak lapel suit I’m fully on board with. I adore the girlie touches such as the pink velvet trims and lace shirt with crystal detailing. I can’t say I’m a fan of the pink ‘Sylvie’ mini bag though. It feels like something Paris Hilton would wear.

Li Yuchun aka Chris Lee: After her successful outing at Cannes, the Asian performer wore a Gucci Fall 2018 look with an Americana touch thanks to the embroidered NY Yankees ™ applique. I know some of you aren’t fans of logo heavy looks, but I feel Li Yuchun pulls off the GG canvas shorts with relaxed ease without coming across as a logo maniac.

Soko: I have a feeling clown comparisons will be made when it comes to Soko’s Gucci Spring 2018 Elton John inspired yellow and black oversized check suit. If anyone has the personality to pull this off, it’s Soko.
