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.

Halsey In Georges Hobeika & Julien Macdonald – 2018 amfAR Gala New York

Halsey was a guest performer for the 2018 amfAR Gala New York on Wednesday (February 7), so we were treated to two looks from the singer.

Red Carpet: Slit to the hip-bone gowns never go down too well with the majority, but I do like how this Georges Hobeika Spring 2018 gown was styled with the embellished hosiery on the model. On Halsey it feels like a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. Lorraine Schwartz 18 karat white gold and white diamond bow tie earrings and a white diamond dragon fly ring plus Jimmy Choo sandals completed her look.

2018 Grammy Awards Menswear Roundup

The men brought their fashion game to the 60th anniversary of the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) in New York City.

Zayn Malik: Zayn was dressed to the nines in this mauve Richard James Spring 2018 suit. It was an unexpected hue that I loved on the singer, especially with his graphic twist on the white rose and his patterned socks.

John Legend:
The singer cut a handsome profile in this Burberry double-breasted tuxedo styled with Chopard cufflinks. I liked this sleek midnight-blue deviation from the standard black tux.

Neyo: The rapper was styling and profiling in a Grayscale suit that was boldly striking by virtue of its goldenrod, velvet jacket in which the white #TimesUp rose was the perfect counterpart.

Pre-Grammys Weekend Roundup

This pre-Grammys weekend roundup left us with a motley collection of entrances in New York City that all appeared to be reading the same WDOTW memo.

Hailey Baldwin: Hailey joined another Hailee (Baldwin) at the Republic Records pre-Grammys event on Friday (January 26). However, they couldn’t have been dressed more unlike each other, as this pink Off-White Spring 2018 ensemble showed designer Virgil Abloh’s luxury streetwear vibe—done with a bubblegum ’80s twist. Jennifer Fisher jewels rounded out the directional look.

Priyanka Chopra:
With a rare misstep at the GRAMMY Salute to Industry Icons Honoring Jay-Z on Saturday (January 27), Priyanka lost me completely with this Ester Abner Spring 2018 outfit that suffered not only in fit but also in execution. All I was left with was an ill-conceived, messy bathrobe-boudoir vibe.

Julia Michaels: Also at the GRAMMY Salute event, Julia fared only marginally better in this Yanina Fall 2017 Couture frock. Exposed shoulder pads, blinding-white cuffs, and an unusual take on lining left a lot to be desired in the execution department.
