Most Worn 2017 – Halpern’s Draped Bustier Top

While Christian Dior knickers may have been the trend of 2017, it was a different kind of lingerie-inspired piece that commanded the top spot for most-worn item.

Although, I have to say I would have never predicted that it would be Halpern’s high-octane, draped bustier top that would have won the prize.

The corset-inspired piece, with its long side train, is such a power player with its explosion of glittery embellishment—a multi-colour confetti of dazzling sequins. Generally, these types of statements are not trotted out on multiple occasions.

But, after Marion Cotillard debuted the look, there was no deterring any of its future wearers, as Katy Perry, Cardi B, Rita Ora, and Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert each one-by-one in succession continued carrying the sparkling torch of the look.

I do love how Giovanna rounded out its fifth outing with a bang by skipping the bedazzled trousers underneath and letting her own gorgeous games do the talking.

The Fashion Awards 2017 Red Carpet Roundup

The long list of stars continued in full force at The Fashion Awards 2017 on Monday (December 4) in London.

Kaia Geber: I loved seeing the young model have some fun with the flirty nature of ruffles in this Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 two-piece, cold-shoulder look. It was style-forward, chic, and sweet at the same time. Messika jewels completed her look.

Adwoa Aboah: There was no sequin left unturned in this Halpern Spring 2018 sequin number, but it was the platform footwear that compromised its fresh potential.

Jourdan Dunn: The sultry seduction of the Versace label was fully celebrated in this orange gown. But I most loved the model’s gorgeous beauty look.

Diane Kruger In Halpern – ‘In The Fade’ New York Premiere

Diane Kruger’s rich vein of form has coincided beautiful with her ‘In the Fade’ promo tour, which continued with the New York premiere held at the Museum of Modern Art on Monday (December 4).

The actress dazzled in a Halpern Spring 2018 mini dress which featured the designers signature explosion of multicoloured sequins alongside a graphic cheetah print.

This bold mix made for an altogether more enthralling presentation which Diane kept fully in focus thanks to her Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals.

Michael Halpern of Halpern has had quite an impressive year, starting with Marion Cotillard giving his designs their red carpet debut during Cannes. And last night he ended the year collecting the ‘British Emerging Talent for Womenswear’ at the Fashion Awards.

Amal Clooney In Halpern – Casamigos Halloween Party

As we might expect, Amal Clooney was also at the Casamigos Halloween Party on Friday (October 27) in LA, where she held court with Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber.

Disco fever was raging in her disguise of choice that saw her take the glittery bustier top and bell-bottom flares from the Halpern Spring 2018 collection straight back to the ’70s.

I love the pop of the magenta Judith Leiber clutch. But, what really sent the look into extraordinary orbit was her giant hair, giant Linda Farrow shades, and equally giant hoop earrings.

Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Betty’ sandals completed the look.

Even on Halloween, with this glam entrance, Amal shows us how to be a style icon. This is everything I’d want my costume to be.

Kylie Minogue In Halpern – 2017 Attitude Awards

Kylie Minogue picked up the ‘Legend’ Award at the 2017 Attitude Awards held at The Roundhouse on Thursday (October 12) in London.

Her Halpern high-neck sequin-embellished Fall 2017 mini dress recalls hazy disco-ball reflections in hedonistic 70s nightclubs, from Studio 54 in New York to Le Sept and Le Palace in Paris, which she paired with equally reflective sandals.

I’m not surprised Kylie didn’t opt for the popular two-piece Halpern look we’ve seen worn by Marion Cotillard, Katy Perry and Cardi B, mostly because Kylie never met a mini dress she didn’t love and the aforementioned look would’ve drowned her petite frame.

All The Looks From Rita Ora’s ‘Anywhere’ Music Video Shoot

With a dizzying and dazzling array of wardrobe changes, Rita Ora whisked through eight ensembles while filming her new ‘Anywhere’ music video in New York City on Thursday (October 5). Although many of the looks had a distinctly ‘Rita’ aesthetic, it looks like the sartorial story was also inspired by ‘Sex and the City,’ which naturally created a host of even more memorably modish moments for the singer.

First up, the performer hit the NYC streets, but it was her high boots that did all the walking in this Off White Fall 2017 look that she translated straight from the runway. Electric-blue will always capture my affection, and that didn’t change here with this lush, velveteen coat-dress that was balanced by the quirkiness of the plaid footwear. Alexis Bittar earrings completed this enchanting-cool, fall look.
