2018 GLAAD Media Awards

A range of stars were in attendance at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards, which were held over the weekend on Saturday (May 5) in New York City.

Lea Michele: The newly engaged star had her own fairy-tale moment in this Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2018 dress that provided a modern translation on princess glamour with the glinting, metallic bodice and shortened ball skirt. A braided updo was naturally the only way to complete the picture.

Tommy Dorfman: Never one to not push the envelope just a bit, Tommy matched his hair to his aubergine Calvin Klein Spring 2018 suit with more unorthodox detailing attributed to the singular panel detail on the white tank.

Alexis Bledel: I think what enchanted me most about Alexis’ J. Mendel Spring 2018 dress was how its shimmery aqua hue fully enhanced her striking eyes and fuchsia lip. More metallics came into play with her Emm Kuo clutch and silver Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Zaha’ sandals to top off the look that also had a cinematic, vintage flair.

Alexis Bledel In J. Mendel – ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 Premiere

Alexis Bledel joined Elisabeth Moss for the premiere of Hulu’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 on Thursday (April 19) in Hollywood, California.

Like Jennifer Nettles, Alexis opted for a burnt velvet look from J. Mendel’s Fall 2018 collection.

The actress is known for her love for girlie frocks in fresh colours, so this darker mood is a huge change of direction, but one that I found just as successful as Jennifer’s outing.

Would I wear this dress in summer? No, but I love the end result thanks to the sleek styling which included Nicholas Kirkwood Lola Pearl sandals and a complementary clutch.

‘Westworld’ Season 2 LA Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

Many more stars joined Angela Sarafyan, Thandie Newton, and Evan Rachel Wood at the ‘Westworld’ Season 2 LA premiere on Monday (April 16).

Tao Okamoto: This Elie Saab Spring 2018 gown fully encompassed the designer’s foliage-driven collection with its leafy motif. Many of us will have to choose to ignore the visible nude undies underneath the sheer skirt, as I question whether black granny panties would have been any better.

Jonathan Tucker: Proving that men can certainly wear pink—and look damn handsome—Jonathan took a sharp turn in this Strong Suit by Ilaria Urbinati Collection suit that retained a sense of casual flair thanks to the unbuttoned dress shirt. Rich chocolate loafers and a David Yurman pinky ring rounded out the look.

Katja Herbers: I appreciate that Katja let her Giamba Spring 2018 mixed pattern frock with boho broderie influences stand on its own without the clutter of extraneous accessories.

Jennifer Nettles In J. Mendel – 2018 ACM Awards

Jennifer Nettles graced the blue carpet at the 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday (April 15) in Las Vegas, Nevada, joining Julia MichaelsBebe Rexha and Lauren Alaina.

The Sugarland singer looked statuesque in a J. Mendel Fall 2018 gown.

This style has such a commanding presence thanks to its luxurious fabric and sleek shape, but it’s the pattern that draws you in.

The diagonal lines are actually a mix of sheer black netting and a flocked velvety fabric. The detail work reveals a hint of skin while creating such a sumptuous tactile quality.

She went with a coordinated finish with Dean Davidson ‘Ipanema’ stud earrings in cranberry quartz and coordinating eye makeup.

Halsey In J. Mendel – 9th Annual Blossom Ball

Halsey attended the Endometriosis Foundation of America’s 9th Annual Blossom Ball on Monday (March 19) in New York City.

The musician wore a J. Mendel Fall 2018 high-neck, long-sleeve gown; which is the most amount of fabric she has worn in a long while, yet I’m sure many will object to the visible bodysuit.

i adore the dress on the model, so colour me crazy, when I say that I kinda like this look on Halsey. She may not have toned down her signature style, but she did put it on mute, with a softer approach which I appreciate.

Does anyone see the modern approach to glamour here, or is it another no from you to Halsey’s red carpet style?

Eva Fehren rings and the Sylva & Cie faceted rough diamond thorn studs completed her look.

Hannah John-Kamen In J. Mendel – ‘Ready Player One’ London Premiere

Hannah John-Kamen joined her co-star Olivia Cooke for the London premiere of ‘Ready Player One’ this evening (March 19).

This gorgeous J. Mendel finely pleated silk chiffon gown is a classic style from designer, yet it’s made to feel fresh with both the lemon hue and the embellished neckline.

Hannah complemented the feminine feel with soft, pretty waves — but didn’t over do it on the jewels. She used her accessories sparingly, but made them count, with an ear cuff and silver metallic clutch.
