Gwyneth Paltrow In La Perla – La Perla Pre-Fall 2018 Dinner

Gwyneth Paltrow joined La Perla for an intimate dinner in New York City celebrating the brand’s Pre-Fall 2018 women’s ready-to-wear collection designed by Creative Director, Julia Haart. at The Lobster Club on Monday (November 27).

I’m sure some of you will notice this third occurrence of Gwynnie in a black suit in recent days.

But, I will never complain when the ode to androgyny looks this sharply alluring.

Her La Perla Spring 2018 suit was plenty seductive, and I love how the tailored plunge effect of the blazer counteracted the roomier, wide-leg proportions of the trousers.

Plus, I loved her glossy waves, which contributed to the radiance of her fresh-faced smile.

2017 amfAR & The Naked Heart Foundation Fabulous Fund Fair

Natalia Vodianova’s annual Fabulous Fund Fair for The Naked Heart Foundation traveled to New York City for the first time in partnership with amfAR on Saturday (October 28). Guests did not shirk their costume duties, either, for the Halloween-themed bash that saw a range of extravagant outfits.

Natalia Vodianova: There was no danger of missing the Naked Heart founder in the crowd, as she was the life-size incarnation of a Jeff Koons sculpture in her Andrey Bartenev balloon-esque design, further amped up by green Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2018 boots.

Naomi Campbell: There was almost more dress in the supermodel’s headdress than in her actual metallic-laced mini from The Blonds Fall 2017 collection.

Izabel Goulart: The model may have been channeling a Frida Kahlo-like spirit, but her Christian Dior Spring 2018 sheer embellished confection was very much within her go-to sexy style. Chopard jewels completed the look that was on the Red Carpet Wish List for Diane Kruger.

Fan Bingbing In La Perla – La Perla Spring 2018 Fashion Show

La Perla hosted its Spring/Summer 2018 ready-to-wear fashion show with the gorgeous Fan Bingbing and the rather dashing Hu Bing in attendance.

They were treated to a lavish gala dinner and runway presentation in Macao, China on Thursday (October 20), which saw top runway models including Natasha Poly and Liu Wen walk in the show along with local talent.

Fan Bingbing: I love how her La Perla’s look subtly mixes the elegance of lingerie with the sharpness of suiting. Methinks, (hopes, prays) this is the closet the actress ever gets to the sheer trend.

Hu Bing: God damn he is handsome. His dashing good looks are only intensified by his floral jacquard suit and Clark Kent geek-chic glasses.

2017 Unitas Gala

With New York Fashion Week in full swing, Unitas hosted its third annual gala against human trafficking on Tuesday (September 12) in New York where a bounty of beauties wore their best statement dresses.

Daphne Groeneveld: The model’s inky gown contained many of the current red carpet staples including cutouts and an exposed shoulder. The fishnet detailing was refreshing, but I still got a sense of déjà vu.

Ebonee Davis: Not bothered about showing thighs and boobs, the model donned a white La Perla gown with plunging front and racy slit. I would have liked to see one less detail on the bodice, be it the tie waist, flared panels or contrasting bra.

Barbara Fialho: Shimmering in a Rapha Mendonca dress, the Brazilian beauty accessorised with coordinating Alexandre Birman shoes and an Elena Ghisellini clutch. I’m sure some will be fatigued with more ab cutouts and the thigh-high slit.

Joanne Froggatt In La Perla – Preview Of The ITV Drama ‘Liar’

Joanne Froggatt attended the preview of ITV’s drama ‘Liar’, at BFI Southbank on Thursday (September 7) in London.

I’ve always been a fan of Joanne’s style. She’s never been afraid of colour or being a girlie girl, but with this La Perla Fall 2017 suit I feel we may now see a shift into an unexpected sartorial terrain.

As this is La Perla, support is at the forefront of their designs, so I love how this sharply tailored has a sensuality imbued via the corset jacket along with the pretty floral embroidery.

Nude pumps and neutral makeup keeps this striking look grounded.

J’Adore from head-to-toe.

Emily Ratajkowski dons La Perla & Versace for her Jimmy Kimmel visit

Emily Ratajkowski made her first ever appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ where she talked about the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that Kimmel’s mum kindly made for everyone at the Emmys last year, and the fact that she doesn’t count calories in order to maintain her svelte shape.

Arrival: As you would expect the model rocked a sexy pink La Perla outfit which was part tuxedo, part sheer dress. I can’t say I’m that fond of the creation, but she manages to wear it well enough to showcase at least one of her USPs. The look was simply styled with Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Darcie’ sandals.

Show: Summer calls for statement prints and vibrant colour schemes, so what better way to hail the season than this Botticelli-esqe printed shirt dress which was presented during Versace’s Spring 2018 menswear show. I was significantly more excited about this look for the reasons stated about plus it didn’t feel predictable. Donatella wore the sleeveless version as she took her bow.
