Naomie Harris In Gucci – 2017 BAFTAs

Naomie Harris, Best Supporting Actress nominee for ‘Moonlight’, also attended the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

Here’s the thing: without the gaudy orange flowers under her bust, this dress would be one of my favourites. With them, I’m not so sure. But that’s Gucci for you – prettiness and excess are bought together season after season.

This is quite a different look for Naomie. She usually favours a stripe, or monochrome palette, and most of the time wears dresses that are just-below-the-ankle or slightly higher. This prom-style shape is a welcome delight to her wardrobe.

And the colours are spot on too: the dusty pink and the beige make for a wonderful contrast. The orange flowers spoil the serenity though.

Do you love or hate the flowers?

Anya Taylor-Joy In Gucci – 2017 BAFTAs

You can always rely on ‘Split’ actress Anya Taylor-Joy to make a statement on the red carpet, like here, at the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

This Gucci gown will definitely end up on best and worst dressed lists, it’s one of those polarising pieces, but personally… I love it!

The powder blue and coral work perfectly together, and the romantic, pleated layers and rounded sleeves bring a visually brilliant shape to this red carpet. And then you have Gucci’s now signature animal embroidery and delicate beading to the bust and neck line.

There’s always one star to make the ultimate statement, and I’m so glad it was Anya here.

Do you love this look too?

Isabelle Huppert In Gucci – Santa Barbara International Film Festival

Isabelle Huppert attended the 32nd Santa Barbara International Film Festival in on Wednesday (February 8) where she picked up the Montecito Award.

The French actress wore a striking Gucci Pre-Fall 207 gown with a colour-blocked box clutch.

Clearly, the Academy Award nominee plans to be a fashion force this award season, and this is a lovely entry into her award season fashion log.

If you were to verbally describe this gown to someone with no accompanied image, they would likely think you were crazy, but somehow, the colour-blocking, the top-to-bottom sequins and the floral and ‘Loved’ detailing on the bodice all work together for a harmonious gown that Isabelle brings to life brilliantly.

She even takes the bold look a step forward with her shimmery emerald-green heels and rosey-hued clutch.

I love this look, and I’m excited to see what she wears next. What about you?

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Preen & Gucci – Berlinale International Film Festival

Maggie Gyllenhaal has been making the rounds at the 67th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, where she’s recently attended a press conference, photo call, and the ‘Django’ premiere on Wednesday (February 8) and Thursday (February 9).

Jury Press Conference
: The actress channeled her inner flower child in a Preen Resort 2017 dress, toughened up with black boots. There was a lot of print here, but the ruched shaping helped manage the silhouette.

Jury Photo Call
: The flower power continued in a Gucci Pre-Fall 2017 frock that fully embraced Maggie’s love of a bohemian style spirit. That bright pink bow was just the right happy finish for this exploded print.

‘Django’ Premiere
: The rich boho vibe continued at the premiere, where she again wore a Gucci gown. Given the highly decorative embroidery and the powder pink colour, this was not an easy-to-wear look, but she carried it off beautifully with this attention-commanding entrance.

Dakota Johnson In Gucci – ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Madrid Premiere

Dakota Johnson attended ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ (Cincuenta Sombras Mas Oscuras) premiere at the Kinepolis cinema on Wednesday (February 8, 2017) in Madrid, Spain.

We knew a Gucci gown would make an appearance during this promo tour, but did you expect this ruffled soft-rose Pre-Fall 2017 gown?

Perhaps yes, as Alessandro Michele’s Gucci girl is all about retro glam which this look possesses in abundance.

My first thought was, “why didn’t she wear her hair up?”, but the slightly tousled, unkempt natural look perfectly embodies the relaxed vibe she was going for.

I think a updo would’ve been unnecessarily fussy here.
