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?

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.
