30.01.18 Premiere

‘Black Panther’ World Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

The highly anticipated world premiere of Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ was on Monday (January 29) in Hollywood, California, which drew a veritable constellation of actresses to support the film’s stars Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, and Nabiyah Be.

Sydelle Noel: The actress opted for a golden goddess look in this shimmering Marc Bouwer gown, by which the cutouts made it a sleekly modern interpretation. The gold dress was one thing, but she channeled Vanessa Bell in ‘Coming To America’ even more so with her Imani-approved high ponytail hair.

Chloe Bennett: The high-shine aesthetic continued with Chloe’s Elisabetta Franchi Fall 2017 embellished gown, which wasn’t anything we haven’t seen. Yet, I like that she let the gown have its time in the spotlight by keeping her accessories -which included Neil J. Rodgers ‘Stella’ shoes and Monica Vinader jewels – to a minimum.

Cobie Smulders: Also getting the glitz memo, Cobie glittered in a Markarian Pre-Fall 2018 grock that offered a fresher silhouette by virtue of its sharp lines and side slit. The minimalistic styling – Jimmy Choo ‘Ellipse’ clutch and ‘Minny’ sandals – also served her quite well here, as the dress was the main attraction.

Danielle Brooks In Marc Bouwer – 2018 SAG Awards

Danielle Brooks’ sequin game was strong at the 2018 SAG Awards on Sunday (January 21) in LA.

The ‘Orange Is The New Black’ actress donned a Marc Bouwer gown that prioritized a dynamic, ombre gradation of red to black tones.

I like how she kept the all-over embellishment and the plunge neckline on the classic side by virtue of her styling.

A simple Tadashi Shoji clutch along with elegant finger waves and minimal jewels completed the look, as the dress itself had enough dazzle.

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.

Emily Blunt In Marc Bouwer – 11th Annual American Institute For Stuttering

Ever so radiant, Emily Blunt was at the 11th Annual American Institute For Stuttering ‘Freeing Voices Changing Lives’ benefit gala on Monday (June 26) in New York City.

Taking a sophisticated, monochromatic approach, she donned a Marc Bouwer dress in a bold, red hue to which she chicly coordinated her lip colour.

I love the measured drama that the exaggerated ruffle sleeves delivered here, bringing impact without overwhelming the look.

Her styling was also on point, beginning with the sleek ponytail as long locks would have interfered with the high neckline and sleeves.

Delightful Sophia Webster crystal-embellished heels plus subtly delicate jewels including Dana Rebecca Designs earrings and rings from Graziela Gems and EF Collection rounded out the look.

2017 CFDA Fashion Awards Red Carpet Roundup

A number of stars put their best fashionable foot forwards on Monday (June 5) at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards red carpet.

Jamie Alexander: I love the armour-like details on this Marc Bouwer dress, particularly the gorgeous sleeves. Jamie’s up-do looks suitably fierce, as are the beautiful Jennifer Meyer earrings, which drop like swords. The Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and gold clutch are suitably subtle too.

Meg Ryan: Understated yet opulent Meg’s Christian Siriano gown flowed perfectly. As effortless as this look was it risked being a tad vanilla. Monique Péan jewels did little to save the look.
