Nicole Kidman In Gucci – 2017 SAG Awards

Nicole Kidman attended the 2017 SAG Awards in LA on Sunday (January 29).

The ‘Lion’ actress, who is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for the film, was the main attraction on the red carpet. But was it for the right reasons?

Nicole, historically, gets it really right or really wrong, but we’re not sure where to place this Gucci dress. The parrot detail on the shoulders are slightly too costume, the green washes her out, and we’re not even sure if we like the drape cut of this dress either.

So what’s right with it? Her hair and makeup for starters, and the plunging neckline, and the fact that we never have to see it again maybe?

Are you thumbs up, or thumbs down with this look?

Salma Hayek In Gucci – 2017 SAG Awards

Salma Hayek attended the 2017 SAG Awards in LA on Sunday (January 29).

She chose to wear this canary yellow Gucci gown which was a breath of fresh air to this red carpet, which up to this point was awash with sequins and dark colours.

It’s no surprise really that Salma chose Gucci, it’s one brand she stays loyal to, and this was head and shoulders better than her Gucci faux pas from earlier this week.

The yellow is a great colour on her – her olive complexion sets it off perfectly, and the pink is a lovely contrast too. We could have lost either the corsage or the sash though… the pink edge of the ruffle was enough.

Colourful Irene Neuwirth earrings finished her look.

Salma Hayek In Gucci – Harper’s Bazaar Celebrates 150 Most Fashionable Women

Salma Hayek was also at Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates 150 Most Fashionable Women on Friday (January 27) in West Hollywood, California.

It’s not surprising the actress was in a Gucci dress, but what struck me more significantly was how she looked a bit uncomfortable in it.

The dress’s ornate pattern in combination with the pouf-y long sleeves wasn’t the most flattering look we’ve seen for Salma. The earrings definitely overcooked the outfit even more, before even mentioning the fuchsia heels.

Sienna Miller In Michael Kors, Gucci & Lanvin – 2017 Golden Globe Awards & ‘Live by Night’ LA & London Premiere’s

Sienna Miller attended the 2017 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 8) before jetting off to the ‘Live by Night’ Los Angeles premiere at the TCL Chinese Theatre the next day. Then, it was time for the London premiere of the film on January 11 at The BFI Southbank in England.

2017 Golden Globe Awards: Skipping her more bohemian style sensibility for the evening, the actress selected a white Michael Kors gown. While the cutout dress was a lovely ode to her toned midsection, something just didn’t click here with the collection of pearls and jewels.

‘Live by Night’ LA Premiere: There was nothing short of a night and day difference between the actress’s Golden Globes appearance and this Gucci Spring 2017 gown that she wore for the L.A. premiere—and I have to say I love her bold step away from minimalism. The sky-blue, layered tulle dress was not one for the faint of heart with its clashing neon yellow icicle-shaped embellishments and trompe l’oeil bow. Yet it had a unique ethereality that drew me in.

‘Live by Night’ London Premiere: The actress showed her style versatility yet again at the London premiere where she selected a Lanvin gown for the evening. I have a hard time getting past the creases and puckering throughout the midsection; silky and satiny fabrics such as this can be a challenge to wear. However, I do love her playfully sultry, side-pinned waves.

6th Annual AACTA International Awards

The 6th annual AACTA International Awards were hosted at Avalon Hollywood on January 6, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. The AACTAs recognise and honour outstanding achievement in the Australian film and television industry, so it is no surprise that a few Aussie beauties took to the red carpet for the event.

Nicole Kidman: The statuesque actress wore a Rochas Spring 2017 tea-length dress. I love how she breathed some life into the moodier dress, bringing out the pink waistband with her vibrant lip colour. The main issue I take with the look is in the bodice area, as it appears as if she has a ribbon of tulle wrapped around her waist in cummerbund form thus cutting off her chest.

Isla Fisher: Another auburn-haired Aussie beauty, Isla Fisher lit up the red carpet with an incredibly sunny Monique Lhuillier golden-yellow gown featuring Asian-influenced, lacy floral embroidery. I applaud her attempt to bring a ray of sunshine to the proceedings, however, I found the look to sadly be on the more dated side. Add to it the pair of rather unfortunate platform sandals that occasionally peeked through the too-long gown, and I wanted to shield my eyes from the glare.

Emma Stone: Managing to effectively toe the line between adorable and badass, the ‘La La Land’ actress wore a Gucci dress that took the idea of the LBD to another level. The silhouette of the tiered ruffle frock may have been sweet, but the cage shoulder detail and the embellished bow and collar had just the right amount of rebellious edge to ensure a dramatic and not-too-dainty finish.
