Tracee Ellis Ross In Jenny Packham – 2017 amfAR Gala Cannes


Tracee Ellis Ross was in attendance with designer Jeremy Scott at the amfAR Gala Cannes on Thursday (May 25) during the Cannes Film Festival.

We can always count on the actress to bring her uniquely quirky style to the red carpet, and she delivered in this Jenny Packham Spring 2018 Bridal design.

While this look had nothing of a traditional wedding gown flavour, it did have tons of feisty personality in the wash of sequins and big feather sleeves—not to mention its fiery red hue.

It was a lot of dress, so that’s why I wish the fit of the plunge bodice and waistline along with the floor-puddling hemline had been more precisely tailored, as this look needed as much streamlining as it could get.

OMEGA ‘Lost In Space’ 60th Anniversary Party

A collection of stars celebrated the 60th anniversary of OMEGA Speedmaster at the ‘Lost in Space’ event, held in London on Wednesday (April 26), where OMEGA timepieces were the accessory du jour.

Gemma Arterton: I love how this Jenny Packham Fall 2017 LBD featured tonal fringe adding a bit of pizzazz to the minimalist look.

Liv Tyler: The rosy-pink Valentino frock, printed in whimsical line drawings and cut through with red knife pleats, provided a striking, soft and strong colour contrast. But I do wish the dress was more nipped-in at the waist, and that Liv had skipped the larger handbag.

Clemence Poesy: Featuring a funky, retro print, this Chloé frock sent me straight back to fall when styled with tights and chunky loafers. Unfortunately, Clemence’s au naturel beauty approach did nothing to breathe vibrancy into the look.

Ophelia Lovibond In Jenny Packham – 2017 Olivier Awards

Ophelia Lovibond looks so elegant while gracing the red carpet for the 2017 Olivier Awards held at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday (April 9) in London.

A dreamy confection in yellow chiffon, this Jenny Packham gown brings ethereal beauty and softly spoken glamour together in one fell swoop.

I love a cape on the red carpet as it always achieves maximum impact; this gown was even more heavenly in motion.

If I was to change one thing, I would probably swap out the black clutch for a gold one.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Chanel, Jenny Packman, and Alexander McQueen – In Paris

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was in Paris for a two-day stay over the weekend, arriving in the City of Light on Friday (March 17).

Look 1: This colourful tweed Chanel pleated dress was a chic way to make the rounds in Paris, with the bell sleeves and box pleats adding ladylike poise.

Look 2: Catherine opted to wear a longtime favoured designer of choice, Jenny Packham, for an embassy gala dinner. Although it may have appeared to be baby blue, the gown was actually a striking icy-silver hue. It featured a familiar silhouette, but the special flourish came in the dimensional floral embellishment for an enchanting finish.

Look 3: For a welcome reception at the British embassy on Friday, she wore a black Alexander McQueen textural dress in a fresh, ankle-grazing length with its modern elegance only heightened by her statement necklace.

Leaving The View
: Her signature glam-and-gams style M.O. was alive and well, yet it balanced sophistication with sass in this all-over metallic ensemble consisting of an embellished Jenny Packham Spring 2015 coat worn with a Saint Laurent blouse, Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps, and Dita ‘Talon’ aviator shades.

Mandy Moore In Jenny Packham – 19th Costume Designers Guild Awards

Mandy Moore didn’t get the black memo for the 19th CDGA (Costume Designers Guild Awards) on Tuesday (February 21) in Beverly Hills, California, which was observed by Jane Fonda and Jess Weixler.

The actress wore a Jenny Packham Spring 2017 gown which was stunning on the runway, but lost all its allure on the red carpet.

Why?

Well, it’s a case of the dreaded lining again.

While I commend Mandy for not hopping on the “sheer dress – look at my panties” trend, the look would’ve been served better had the lining run the length of the gown.
