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?

Sarah Paulson In Maison Margiela – 2017 Producers Guild Awards

Sarah Paulson attended the 2017 Producers Guild Awards on Saturday (January 28) in Beverly Hills, California.

I was delighted to see Sarah embrace the velvet fabric crush we’ve seen a lot of this awards season.

What I love about this Maison Margiela champagne-hued crushed velvet dress is that its unmistakably modern; oozing a quietly confident aura.

I’m thankful for the oversized belt as its shapeless silhouette needed to be kept in check.

The size of the clutch is a tad overpowering for me, but a great look nonetheless.

Naomi Campbell In Maison Margiela – amfAR Milano 2015

Naomi Campbell In Maison Margiela - amfAR Milano 2015
Naomi Campbell arrived at amfAR Milano 2015 on Saturday (September 26) at La Permanente in Milan, Italy.

Indulging in the gothic leanings of a black spiderweb-lace Maison Margiela Fall 2015 gown, the supermodel flaunted a dark mystique heavily dusted with dazzling Bulgari jewels.

While she certainly has the power to carry off the drama of this dress, this was yet another of the ubiquitous sheer black entrances that still are captivating the red-carpet set with their allure.

Meanwhile I was craving a continuation of the bold, bright colour theme she rocked at the Versace Spring 2016 show.

Amal Clooney In Maison Margiela – ‘Tomorrowland’ Tokyo Premiere

Amal Clooney In Maison Margiela - 'Tomorrowland' Tokyo Premiere

Amal Clooney attended the Tokyo premiere of ‘Tomorrowland’ at Roppongi Hills on Monday (May 25) in Tokyo, Japan with husband George.

The lawyer wore a deceptively simple custom Maison Margiela dress by John Galliano.

The bias-cut frock was styled with a Bulgari ‘Serpeni Hypnotic’ clutch and metallic Manolo Blahnik BB pumps.

My reaction to this was, finally.

Finally, she wore a look befitting of her A-list status.

This is the kind of gown Nicole Kidman would wear, and this is the level of sophistication she should always be reaching for as I was tiring of those twee dresses.

Amal Clooney In Maison Margiela – 2015 Met Gala

Amal Clooney In Maison Margiela Couture - 2015 Met Gala

Amal Clooney walked the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala in New York City tonight (May 4) arm in arm with her dashing husband George Clooney.

Her strapless red Maison Margiela ‘Artisanal’ gown is clearly made for her body (that tiny waist!) and she looks every bit the part of high fashion goddess that she has earned since coming into the spotlight with George.

At first I questioned how this dress fit into the Chinese theme of the night, but when I realized how Chinese-military inspired the bodice was, I just swooned. I love that Amal and the gown went a completely different direction with the theme, and the intricacies in the construction are riveting.

While I might have liked to see Amal go for a major hair departure with some kind of striking updo, with hair that perfect, I guess you just really want to show it off. All in all, a total win for Mrs. Clooney in my book.
