Demi Lovato In Maison Margiela – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Demi Lovato paid a visit to ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Monday (September 18) to perform her latest single ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ and to discuss the song’s inspiration.

The singer has been veering towards glamorous pieces with a retro vibe recently so I can understand this velvet Maison Margiela dress.

The supersized belt cut a figure-flattering finish while the oversized hoop earrings balanced out the thick band.

While I’m struggling a bit with the size of the belt, the soft cowl neckline mixed with the long, straight hair and hoops is where I have the real issue. I would have preferred to see her hair up and the hoops removed so I could get a clearer sense of the neckline.

You may remember that Sarah Paulson wore this same dress to the Producers Guild Awards.

Cara Delevingne In Maison Margiela & Atelier Versace – ‘Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets’ Mexico City Photocall & Premiere

After a series of suits, Cara Delevingne changed tack for the Mexico City leg of her promo tour for ‘Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets’ on Wednesday (August 2).

Photocall: Striking a pose in Maison Margiela, I like how this dress offers an innately modern take on the classic sheath dress silhouette, offset by the semi-sheerness, dual colourway and the Christian Louboutin ‘ Louise XI’ thigh high boots.

Premiere: Her Atelier Versace Fall 2017 strapless dress comprised with circular glass beads on a metallic structure, with architectural exaggerated 3D elements at the bust and hip was a mini masterpiece. I love how this is in keeping with the futuristic vibe which has been prevalent during this promo tour. She finished her look perfectly with coordinating Versace heels, and a tinge of pink in her hair to match her lip colour.

Bee Shaffer In Alexander McQueen & Anna Wintour In Maison Margiela – 2017 Tony Awards

The 2017 Tony Awards took place on Sunday (June 11) in New York City, and everybody’s favourite mother and daughter duo were in attendance. Bee Shaffer and Anna Wintour both stunned in their respective gowns.

Bee Shaffer: Taken from the Fall 2017 Alexander McQueen Collection Bee’s dress is a riot of colour and texture. The hanging ribbons resemble tassels and give the look a grounded, effortless feel. The patchwork design feels traditional and highlights the incredible workmanship that went into the gown. I love Bee’s Irene Neuwirth jewels which mirror the cascading tassels and ribbons. The red lip and updo is the polished element this look needs to finish it perfectly.

Anna Wintour: There are some who may feel this look is a bit dated, but I love it. Classic and elegant, fashion’s matriarch wears an Anna’s Maison Margiela Spring 2017 Couture gown. Whilst the runway styling is more exciting and shows this dress to its full potential, next to Bee in her busy dress Anna looks perfectly poised. Some gold jewellery and the addition of the original runway waist-tie could have helped to finish this look.

Li Yuchun In Maison Margiela Couture – ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Li Yuchun was spotted making her way to the 2017 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and premiere of ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ on Wednesday (May 17).

By wearing the Maison Margiela Spring 2017 Couture ensemble exactly as it was presented on the catwalk, she successfully translated its directional mood in absolutely effortless form.

What she accomplished was no small feat for such a uniquely curious look that had designer John Galliano revealing the underworkings and seams of garments—like this white dress shirt—while referencing historic Americana in the re-occurrence of the tall hat.

What I love is that she makes this work without a hint of try-hard. What do you make of the look?

Katy Perry In Maison Margiela Couture – 2017 Met Gala

As one of the 2017 Met Gala co-chairs, Katy Perry was one of the first to hit the red carpet—which is actually blue this year—on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

The avant-garde dress code, in celebration of the Costume Institute’s new exhibit ‘Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,’ was not lost on Katy as she took it to the nth degree in a fiery-red Maison Margiela Spring 2017 Couture veiled design.

While the look cannot be faulted for not making an entirely dramatic spectacle for which the Met Gala is known and loved, I do think it crossed too far into the OTT lane of the red carpet.

Adding the heavy-handed embellishment to the original design, plus what seems to be even more flurries of tulle, made Katy appear to be swimming through her own version of the Red Sea.

As for the ‘Witness’ headpiece, complete with swirled metal pieces and two side compact mirrors, it certainly made a statement—one that was nearly comical in its crafty, DIY nature.

Red-haute? Or red-not?
