Ciara In Julien Macdonald – 2018 Billboard Music Awards

Ciara was back on the red carpet for the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 20) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

There’s no deny the new mum looks stunning in this Julien Macdonald Spring 2018 barely-there shimmering dress, which she wore with the correct invisible underwear by Commando,.

But if you’ve been following our Cannes Film Festival coverage this may have come around too soon.

Sheer, nude gowns were very much overplayed at Cannes this year, but I’m not going to let that ruin my enjoyment of Ciara’s look which she styled with Le Silla strappy sandals and hair teased to the heavens.

Models @ amfAR Gala Cannes 2018

With the limited showing of actresses – Kristen Stewart, Laura Harrier and Coco Konig – at the amfAR Cannes Gala this year, it was left to the models to provide the glamour.

Maria Borges: It’s been so great to see Roberto Cavalli back on the red carpet at Cannes. Maria was one of many models to don a look from the Couture collection this year. This platinum piece dripping with citrine micro-crystals and draped fringes was as dazzling as she was radiant.

Karolina Kurkova: Always a cut above, the model looked very elegant and sexy in her Miu Miu column dress which she perfectly accessorized with Miu Miu shoes and drop diamond earrings to complement the Swarovski crystal bow.

Sara Sampaio: Even the models outstretch leg couldn’t upstage the dazzling sheen of her pleated lame Elie Saab Resort 2018 blue gown.

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

The fashion was strong at the ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival premiere on Tuesday evening (May 15). Attendees joined Emilia Clarke, Phoebe Waller-BridgeThandie Newton and Elizabeth Debicki.

Liu Wen: Never one to go down the sheer, bedazzled route, she shone in Bottega Veneta Fall 2018. She borrowed styling ideas from the runway, but added a Bottega Veneta clutch. The rich marigold colour had such a sumptuous air. I’m curious to see how the ankle boots will go down.

Toni Garrn: The German model showed some leg in Roberto Cavalli Couture. It certainly embodied the designer’s sensual aesthetic. It also showed a level of craftsmanship for the way the lining perfectly matched her skin tone with no distracting bra cups or panty lines.

Doutzen Kroes: The Dutch beauty traded in the gown for strong-shouldered Tom Ford separates paired with pink Tom Ford pumps. Some ensembles with exaggerated shoulders haven’t gone down well, but the proportions of this look shouldn’t offend.

Praya Lundberg In Julien Macdonald – ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Praya Lundberg made her second appearance on the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ this evening (May 12).

I have always had the Thai L’Oreal ambassador down as a “gown and gala” kinda girl, but she went all the way left in this Julien Macdonald Fall 2016 two piece look.

She may have tempered the look from the runway, but she was still oozing plenty of sultry appeal.

You often feel like these razzle-dazzle looks from Julien Macdonald are overplayed on models and Jennifer Lopez, so how does this look fare on Praya?

Chopard Secret Night Red Carpet Roundup

There were many more gorgeous gals who attended Chopard’s Secret Night during Cannes Film Festival on Friday (May 12), where they joined by Lupita Nyong’o, Marion Cotillard and Julianne Moore.

Joan Smalls: We expect models to attend these events in predictable sheer, slit to the hipbone dresses, but Joan was not sticking to those loose rules on this occasion. The model looked breath-taking wearing a Miu Miu Collection bow accented top and fluid skirt. I found this look very elegant and chic. Miu Miu executed this beautifully. I would say it’s one of my favourites so far. The look was styled with Roger Vivier sandals and Chopard jewels.

Irina Shayk: The one thing you can always expect from Irina at Cannes is high-glamour. She had me purring with delight at her Alberta Ferretti emerald green velvet gown styled with matching Chopard jewels. This is definitely her best at Cannes this year. Even if this dress did remind me of Rita Ora’s Grammy gown.

Models @ The Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Models stormed the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California, with a range of head-turning looks—for better or worse.

Alessandra Ambrosio: The naked dress had another showing with this Ralph & Russo Couture embellished, sheer design, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. There will be no doubt her body isn’t rocking, but I know eyes will be rolling at the complete transparency of the look.

Ashley Graham: This Rubin Singer gown featured a recognizable, slit-to-there silhouette, but it was the gleaming sheen that upped the ante. A swept-back hairstyle and Sophia Webster sandals completed the look.

Lily Aldridge: The golden-goddess look served Lily well in this Versace liquid-gold gown that had a certain chainmail effect. Christian Louboutin heels and Bvlgari jewels and bag finished her glamorously regal entrance.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

A couple of premieres have brought the men to the red carpet yesterday.

Donald Glover: For FX’s premiere of ‘Atlanta Robbin’ Season’ on Monday (February 19), the actor impressed in a Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2018 ensemble that was a handsome alternative to the standard suit. I especially love the buttery, dark-mustard leather jacket here, as it looks so richly suave on Donald.

Joel Edgerton: Joining Jennifer Lawrence, Tallia Storm and Joely Richardson at the ‘Red Sparrow’ London premiere on Monday (February 19), Joel held his own in a Brunello Cucinelli pinstripe suit. However, I did question the length of the pants with his heavy-handed, lace-up shoes, as they seemed such a departure from the more classic, sophisticated tones of the suit.

Lakeith Stanfield: In contrast to Donald’s preppy-sleek look, Lakeith went for a tough-punk vibe at the ‘Atlanta Robbin’ Season’ premiere. The heavy-duty, studded Julien Macdonald Spring 2017 vest was the star attraction, but I have to think that the mask seen around his neck was paying even more direct homage to the crime-filled premise of the show.
