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!

Variety And Women In Film’s 2017 Pre-Emmy Celebration

While Entertainment Weekly was hosting its Pre-Emmy Party on Friday (September 15) in West Hollywood, California. Variety and Women in Film were doing the same thing with their Pre-Emmy Celebration in West Hollywood that likewise attracted a number of stars.

Jennifer Nettles: Between the black paneling and the tiered skirt, this black-and-red dress could have benefited from a slightly simpler approach as it looked a bit haphazard as presented. Ileana Makri jewels completed the look.

Abigail Spencer: Abigail took a pretty-in-pink approach with her feminine Solace London dress that featured the added drama of cape sleeves an Edie Parker clutch and tonal pink Kurt Geiger pumps rounded out the look.

Angela Sarafyan: This Elisabetta Franchi Fall 2017 floral-embroidered frock was an intriguing fusion between high-octane shine and a slight Victorian vibe. Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and a Jimmy Choo clutch blended right in, in the best way possible.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Our final menswear roundup of the week serves up three savvy styles.

Javier Bardem: The actor joined co-star Jennifer Lawrence for the ‘mother!’ New York premiere looking very dapper in his Gucci green Heritage suit, proving that simple and classic is often best.

Future: The rapper donned a full Dior Homme look which was smart while oozing contemporary flair. Methinks the turtleneck only served to show off the bling.

Zayn Malik: The singer usually gives us a contemporary or fashion-forward look, but for the US Weekly Most Stylish New Yorkers event he demonstrated his love for a time-honored, classic Tom Ford three-piece suit.
