Kat Graham In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture – ‘Where’s The Money’ LA Premiere

Kat Graham is someone who has fun with fashion and trying different looks. This was evident at the ‘Where’s The Money’ LA premiere on Wednesday (October 18).

The former ‘Vampire Diaries’ actress sported a pinstripe Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2012 Couture suit which was anything but your typical pantsuit. The jacket was the statement piece with a long sleeve and sharp shoulder transforming into a slim scarf wrap. Soft, tapered trousers were a smart counterpoint.

I appreciate Kat experimenting with this look, although I understand it won’t be everyone’s favourite. The only thing I would have liked to see is the lapel worn flat rather than popped as the point of the notched collar against her neck was somewhat distracting.

White Casadei pumps brought out the contrasting details in the suit.

What did you think of the outfit?

Irving Penn Exhibition Private Viewing Hosted by Vogue

A private viewing, hosted by Vogue, for the Irving Penn exhibition at the Grand Palais was held on Sunday (October 1) during Paris Fashion Week.

Adwoa Aboah: Taking a break from walking the runways at Paris Fashion Week, Adwoa posed in a Richard Quinn Spring 2018 look that offered an invigorating, happy mix of ditzy florals. You would think with so many bold, competing prints that this would translate as disjointed. But, on the contrary, I loved this look on Adwoa, and I also credit its success to her minimal approach to the styling, with a black sandal and red pout all she needed. Flower power, indeed.

Kylie Minogue: I think it’s safe to say that Kylie put this Alice McCall ‘More Than A Woman’ fringe gown to work for her—as it was made to be spun around. As fun as it was, I was a bit tassel fatigued and the muted, mauve-pink colour wasn’t my favourite for the vibrancy of the entertainer, but she attempted to bring a splash of vividness via her lipstick.

Dita von Teese: With a look that riffed on the field-of-poppies print from the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2017 Couture collection, Dita maximized proportions with this look. I have mixed feelings on the balloon sleeves, as they might be lumped into a costume-y circus category. But, the colours were striking in contrast to the black pencil skirt.

2017 GQ Men of The Year Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Many more femmes took to the GQ Men of The Year Awards red carpet to celebrate the fellas on Tuesday (September 5) in London.

Jourdan Dunn: I love how the flash of red brought an eye-catching finesse to the supermodel’s Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2013 Couture sculpted gown that celebrated sumptuous velvet, as we transition into fall-facing looks.

Winnie Harlow: While Winne wore her Julien Macdonald Fall 2017 chainmail-esque harness gown with model prowess, it still seems to be something we’ve seen before. Sheer? Check. Slit to there? Check. The sultry glamour in her long waves and matte red lip also contributed to the overtly sexy vibe.

Venice Film Festival Weekend Roundup

Here is a roundup of the stunning gowns which hit the Venice Film Festival carpet this weekend.

Giulia Bevilacqua: If you were in any doubt, Giulia did her best to let you know that she’s arrived at the festival, sweeping, almost literally, the red carpet in Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini. Beautiful woman. Equally beautiful gown, but I would’ve loved to have seen some earrings here.

amfAR Paris Dinner 2017

The amfAR Paris Dinner was hosted at the Grand Palais on Sunday (July 2), and it certainly served up an eclectic array of looks.

Cindy Bruna: Statuesque and striking, the French model was a study in sleek simplicity in a Dsquared2 gown that looked to sharp tailoring and a mode of Le Smoking sensibility for inspiration. I love how the belted waist fully celebrated the structured sophistication with de Grisogono jewels adding a touch of sparkle.

Noemie Lenoir: Alternatively, there was no place for minimalism in this French model-actress’s Jean-Paul Gaultier Fall 2016 Couture ensemble. I was delighted to see this look stripped down from its original runway presentation, as the glittery sequin split tunic top and foliage-embossed pants were plenty decorative enough.

Sarah Snyder: Creating her own sexy, mod superheroine vibe out of this Fendi Pre-Fall 2017 high-low dress, Sarah styled the frock with what can only be called fierce Fendi over-the-knee boots that did reflect the red textural fabric on the underside of the skirt. Or, should we call it a cape.

Kim Kardashian West In Vintage Jean Paul Gaultier – 2017 Forbes Women’s Summit

Kim Kardashian West was giving us serious businesswoman vibes at the 2017 Forbes Women’s Summit on Tuesday (June 13) in New York City.

The reality star exuded confidence in a Vintage Jean Paul Gaultier pinstripe suit. The dreamy long waves look lovely, but I wish she’d gone for a bolder, sleeker look befitting of this blazer-trouser combo.

I’m all for playing with proportions, especially when it comes to androgynous ensembles, but the sleeves feel too long and the blazer too tight. Kim also looks like she’s arrived sans shoes because of the odd trouser length and nude sandal.

With a few tweaks this could have been a winning look for me, what do you think?
