2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet Roundup

The crush of beauties continued in full force on the red carpet of the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party last night (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California.

Odeya Rush: The young starlet was a vision in this neon-bright chartreuse Vivienne Westwood Couture gown. The sculptural, one-shoulder ruffle detail is nothing we haven’t seen before, but the bold colour made the look feel dynamic. I do think she could have offered up a more youthful beauty look—and less bronzer—to accompany the sophisticated sass of the gown.

Dree Hemingway: There was a delicate daintiness to this Valentino Pre-Fall 2018 nude, embellished lace gown, which Dree echoed in her minimal hair and makeup. The yellow-tinged, ribbon belt made all the difference in breathing a bit of life into the neutral dress, with Repossi jewels to complete the look.

Leslie Bibb In J.Mendel – 2018 Oscars

Leslie Bibb attended the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) in Los Angeles.

The actress and partner of nominee Sam Rockwell wore a black J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2018 with classic diamond drop earrings.

I love it when a gown looks like it was made specifically for a body, and boy does this ever! Leslie and this dress seem to embody each other, and each detail is superb from the pleated under layer to the lace panels under the arms.

Her braided, relaxed chignon is the perfect way to complete the total win of a look.

Kumail Nanjiani In Ermenegildo Zegna Couture & Emily V. Gordon In J. Mendel – 2018 Oscars

‘The Big Sick’ actor/writer Kumail Nanjiani and writer Emily V. Gordon made for an elegant couple at the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) in Hollywood.

Kumail was ever so dapper in an Ermenegildo Zegna Couture tuxedo styled with Tod’s shoes and David Yurman cufflinks.

Meanwhile, Emily was glammed up in her J. Mendel gown that featured a romantic, fairy-tale effect with the sheer, ruffled layers of the skirt.

I like the old Hollywood components she introduced with her finger waves and red lip.

Anna Camp In J. Mendel – 2018 Costume Designers Guild Awards

Anna Camp stepped onto the red carpet for the 2018 Costume Designers Guild Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Tuesday (February 20) in California, alongside Kerry Washington, Rachel Brosnahan, Sarah Hyland and Sally Field.

This J. Mendel Spring 2018 ruffled melon-hued dress sees the actress opt not to turn the tide on her usual girlie, ultra feminine aesthetic.

Would I want to see her rock an embellished Balmain jumpsuit?

Yes, for a nice change, but I also love that she knows who she is and what works best for her.

And this, works best for her.

The CFDA, WWD & Variety Celebrate Runway To Red Carpet Initiative

To celebrate the inaugural launch of the Runway to Red Carpet initiative, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Variety and Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) hosted a star-studded luncheon on Tuesday (February 20) at the Chateau Marmont, which was sponsored by Karma Automotive.

A range of starlets were in attendance. However, if you had just looked at their ensembles, you’d never know they were at the same event—so diverse were their modes of dress.

Olivia Munn: I like the sunny outlook of this Veronica Beard Spring 2018 warm-weather-ready suit set, with the drawstring detailing adding an element of feminine allure. Obviously, the shorts didn’t stand up so well to the creases from sitting.

Lea Michele: Opting for a more romantically feminine offering, Lea wore a Zuhair Murad floral gown with a ruffled peplum. I can imagine this dress looked very pretty in the garden outside.

January Jones: I appreciate the directional, urban-forward mood the actress was setting with this Off-White Resort 2018 look—complete with that slick-back ponytail. However, I know the deconstructed, pinstripe skirt will have many saying it looks as if she wrapped a bolt of men’s shirting material around her waist.

2018 DGA Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The 2018 DGA Awards didn’t just see Sally Hawkins, Greta Gerwig, and Saoirse Ronan in attendance. Many more stars were on the red carpet on Saturday (February 3) in Beverly Hills, California.

Kyra Sedgwick: I believe the updo is partly to blame for the more matronly tones of this Zuhair Murad Spring 2018 fringed gown styled with Chopard jewels.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw: This Oscar de la Renta gown was a refreshing ode to modern elegance. I love how the deceptively simple silhouette radiated with subtle glimmering embellishment before giving way to a celebration of dégradé fringe below.

Allison Janney: Statuesque as always, Allison was striking in this J Mendel gown styled with Ara Vartanian earrings, a Sylva & Cie ring, a Jimmy Choo clutch, and matching red Stuart Weitzman heels. The dimensional lace bodice offered a romantic counterpoint to the sleekness of the skirt.
