Dakota Johnson In Gucci – Green Carpet Fashion Awards

Dakota Johnson joined Zoe Saldana for the Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Italia on Sunday (September 24) in Milan, Italy.

I loved her last Gucci look, so I was delighted to see her wearing the label again here—albeit, in a completely different capacity.

While we’ve lately been associating the Italian design house with head-spinning prints, none of those punchy patterns had a place in this semi-sheer tulle gown that had an air of elegant fantasy about it.

The starburst bra cups were the one element that gave me pause, but I couldn’t help but love the inky, mesmerizing layers of the gown that drifted about her—with the faint twinkle of embellishment throughout.

I did feel like something was missing—and then I remembered it was her bangs, which she brushed back in favour of a more formal look, perhaps.

Front Row @ Gucci Spring 2018

As we might expect, the front row at the Gucci Spring 2018 show on Wednesday (September 20) during Milan Fashion Week was awash in a head-turning mix of bold prints and bright patterns from the label.

Dakota Johnson:
Starting the front row off with a bang, Dakota easily had one of my favoured looks in this colourful, pleated dress. I love the retro-forward, geometric print and the alluringly artsy mix of hues. The dragon-embroidered bag wouldn’t have been my first choice, though, for this look as it seemed so disparate from the mod mood.

Salma Hayek: Salma’s dress stood out for its prominent lack of pattern. But, it still charmed with the modern-Victorian lace detail and girlie bow at the waist that was very much in keeping with the star’s style.

Li Yuchun/Chris Lee: Never one to do fashion by halves, the entertainer presented a full-on fashion experience here. The cape may have been ‘Blind for Love,’ but I for one, don’t know where to look first between the Gucci signature print T-shirt, intricately patterned skirt, knee socks, and booties—not to mention the ear muffs. This was a performance piece, if nothing else.

2017 Emmy Awards Menswear Roundup

The 2017 Emmy Awards were last night (September 17) in LA, and they delivered a number of memorable looks from the menswear department.

Caleb McLaughlin: The ‘Stranger Things’ actor may only be 15, but age has had no impact on his trendsetting, grown-up style. He dressed to impress in a custom Garçon Couture tuxedo that I loved for its bold purple, floral dinner jacket; the colour of which added snazzy, youthful fun to the look. Slim trousers and slipper-style loafers completed the suave ensemble.

Noah Schnapp:
‘Stranger Things’ will not be faulted for not having quite the stylish set of young guns, as I’m even more obsessed with 13-year-old Noah’s style. Statement jackets and cool-kid looks are his current M.O., and that can be thoroughly witnessed in this Balmain outfit. From the royal, velvet military jacket, to his embroidered slippers, he is showing guys three times his age how it’s done.

Finn Wolfhard: Rounding out the ‘Stranger Things’ trio, Finn took a safer approach in a black Prada tuxedo that still wins him style points, though.

2017 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is our roundup from Sunday’s 2017 Emmy Awards.

Shannon Purser: I felt this was quite a magical, fairytale moment for Shannon. Her custom Sachin and Babi gown was simply breath-taking. Not only in colour, but also in design. The look was styled with Swarovski jewels.

Judith Light: Some might say this Christian Siriano gown is dated, but Judith brings so much energy to the look, that one can’t help but be left in awe.

Jessica Lange In Gucci – 2017 Emmy Awards

Jessica Lange attended the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 17) in Los Angeles.

For the occasion, the Hollywood icon chose a Gucci gown, Jimmy Choo shoes and Neil Lane jewels.

When it comes to red carpets, Ms. Lange has seen a few, which says to me, she knows what she’s doing! This look completely confirms my suspicions. The velvet is both striking and completely on-trend this season, the gold detailing offers drama and elegance, and the neckline offers us just enough skin to keep things from being too mumsy.

The concepts of this gown (velvet, gold sequins) could easily read ‘dated’, but Gucci knows how to make a gown, and Jessica knows how to wear one!
