Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Preview Party

Wednesday (June 7) played host to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition preview party, a highlight of London’s social calendar which attracted a plethora of style savvy stars.  I was delighted that many summery frock were on display, despite the not-so summer weather.

Zawe Ashton: There was something very 1920s about Zawe’s Roksanda ‘Hillevi’ dress in glorious bubblegum pink satin. Sleek finishing touches were added with a Roksanda ‘Besa’ bag and Roksanda ‘Dana’ shoes.

Florence Welch: Sticking to her signature bohemian style, the singer kept things colourful with a Gucci Fall 2017 ensemble. Black and pink floral prints made way for a ruby red Gucci clutch and cream Gucci boots, both emblazoned with the designer’s definitive animal symbolism.

Katherine Jenkins: The singer chose a monochrome Nedo by Nedret Taciroğlu piece for the occasion. While I liked the lace detailing, the belt seemed ill-fitting to the look.

Chloe Sevigny In Gucci – ‘Beatriz At Dinner’ New York Screening

Gucci and The Cinema Society hosted a screening of ‘Beatriz At Dinner’ on Tuesday (June 6) in New York City, where Chloe Sevigny was in attendance.

Paying top-to-toe homage to the designer host, the actress donned a Gucci Pre-Fall 2017 dress with the ferocious tiger motif.

While the frock was a statement in and of itself that aligned to Chloe’s edgy fashion-girl aesthetic, she upped the ante more with her styling including a heart-printed turban, studded clutch, and Gucci Isle sock sandals that she wore with girly, white embellished socks.

I don’t throw around the word ‘fierce’ all that much, but this is a look that is deserving—both literally and figuratively. Would you agree?

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The men have been making the rounds over the past few days, with the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards, premieres, and more all providing reason for them to hit the red carpet.

Matt Bomer: An army-green suit is not one we see on the daily. So, this Todd Snyder ensemble at the CFDA Fashion Awards really caught my eye—especially with the contrasting, tuxedo racing stripes down the side. It was a clever juxtaposition of formal-wear with a sportier vibe in the cropped pants and socks-less loafers. But, I do wish the pants had been pressed.

Tom Cruise: Tom joined Sofia Boutella and Annabelle Wallis for the premiere of ‘The Mummy’ in Mexico City, where he wore an Ermenegildo Zegna Made to Measure three-piece suit. Sure, he looked handsome. But, with a Made to Measure suit, I would have expected a more precise, polished fit as the fabric seemed to crease and pull at various places here.

Donald Glover: Donald was at the Atlanta For Your Consideration screening in New York City, where he wore a Gucci ‘Donald Duck’ cardigan for our consideration. I actually found myself liking the playful, cartoonish spirit. I would have opted for black pants or denim jeans as opposed to these dark navy trousers as they seemed to be the odd man out.

Gucci Cruise 2018 Front Row

The front row at the Gucci Cruise 2018 fashion show which took lace a the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy yesterday (May 29) was filled with famous faces, and some incredibly fashion-forward outfits.

Kirsten Dunst: Fresh from her successful Cannes adventure, the actress was still in the mood to embrace colour wearing a Gucci Spring 2017 two-piece, with the skirt being the standout feature. We don’t often see Kirsten rock bold patterns, so this added a fun element to her look.

Donald Glover: The ‘Atlanta’ star is a man of many talents; now he can add snappy dresser to the list too. You couldn’t help but notice him as his outfit was the perfect combination of comfort and style. There is nothing better than a bold floral shirt on a fella, especially when tempered with a cool navy shorts and white leather Gucci ‘Ace’ sneakers. However, it’s that wide-brimmed hat that really sells this look.

Dakota Johnson: Proving that she is definitely ready for spring, Datoka’s black halterneck Gucci Fall 2017 dress with bright pink patterns was the epitome of laid-back but chic. I love how the accessories brightened the look further.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Not only have the men been making the rounds on the red carpet at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival over the last few days, some have also not been in France whilst attending to other premieres and events.

Chris Pine: At the ‘Wonder Woman’ LA premiere, Chris dressed to impress in a hyper-traditional Giorgio Armani Made to Measure three-piece suit complete with a pocket watch chain.

Harry Styles: With a distinct nod to retro style, Harry had a throwback moment in a custom Gucci embroidered suit prior to his performance at The Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood. I actually love the casual ’70s flair of the look.

Will Smith
: Sleekly buttoned up, Will did the double-breasted suit thing in top form at the ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes premiere.
