Laura Linney In J. Mendel – 2018 SAG Awards

Laura Linney attended the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 21).

The actress wore a J. Mendel gown with subtle diamond jewelry.

I am really perplexed about this look. I love a good cape moment, and the light pink is a lovely hue. The beaded feather print is also quite pretty. Yet, this doesn’t wow me. And it almost feels heavy, despite the light fabric and color.

Laura’s simple side-parted hair is beautiful (but perhaps an updo would have played into the look more?) and her smokey eye is perfectly dramatic.

So what’s the consensus: Are we loving this look, or is it too heavy?

2018 Critics’ Choice Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Following the 2018 Golden Globes black dress code, the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday (January 11) showcased a range of colours, styles and designers.

Reese Witherspoon: The actress’s most memorable looks often have bold colours, so I was surprised she opted for a black Prada dress. That being said, I thought the short length really worked for her, with the embellishment adding some vicariousness. The Roger Vivier shoes enhanced the playful mood.

Emma Roberts: Her choppy blonde fringe was certainly a talking point, but the elegant simplicity of her Giorgio Armani gown didn’t go unnoticed. The strapless column fit perfectly. She styled it in a very modern way with the gold-toned accessories and by leaving the neckline bare.

Emilia Clarke: Like Reese, the ‘Game of Thrones’ star opted for a shorter black dress. She wore a Dolce & Gabbana frock with Gianvito Rossi sandals. I would have loved to see the look completed with a red lip as it would have added some warmth while playing up the brand’s Italian film star aesthetic.

The 2017 Miss Universe Pageant

The 2017 Miss Universe Pageant took place on Sunday (November 26) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Fergie: Some would class her Balmain mini sparkler a typical Vegas glam look, what with the micro length and the embellishments, and they wouldn’t be wrong as this dress makes the ultimate Vegas statement – “Look at me now”.

Rachel Platten: When you look at Fergie’s dress and Rachel’s J. Mendel Resort 2018 pale-blue gown, you’d be forgiven for thinking they were at totally different events.

Ashley Graham: The model, who was the backstage host, wore a Michael Costello fitted lace dress. When I think of the designer; sexy gowns with plunging necklines spring to mind. And when I think of Ashley’s styled silk dresses and a corset are usually her red carpet M.O., so this is refreshing and intriguing on both fronts.

Crystal Reed In J. Mendel – 45th International Emmy Awards

Crystal Reed looked beautiful at the 45th International Emmy Awards on Monday (November 20) in New York City.

Her J. Mendel Fall 2017 gown had a magnificent textural quality courtesy of the whimsical bands decorating the full skirt.

The sheer panels provided a lightness to the feather-like tufts of white and soft peach, creating an ethereal effect.

Pale gowns in neutral shades can sometimes wash out the wearer, but the embellished maxi had a flattering warmth which enlivened the ‘Gotham’ star’s complexion.

The black belt tied things up perfectly, echoing the sheer stripes.

2017 American Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There were plenty more music lovers who joined Ciara, Selena Gomez and Nicole Kidman on the red carpet for the 2017 American Music Awards on Sunday (November 19) in LA.

Bebe Rexha: You’ll be forgiven if you thought Bebe was Kim Kardashian in this black August Getty Atelier Spring 2018 Swarovski crystal strapless dress. The resemblance is uncanny.

Heidi Klum: The ‘Project Runway’ host went back into the archives to unearth this gorgeous vintage Versace gown.

Jenna Dewan Tatum: When it comes to the archetypal music awards dresses, Jenna totally nailed it with her custom Julien Macdonald gold embellished look. John Hardy jewels added yet more shine.
