Kerry Washington In Mary Katrantzou & Missoni – Cannes Lions 2018

Kerry Washington is at the Cannes Lions Festival for a host of events including a breakfast with Twitter and a soiree on Monday evening hosted by streaming media companies Spotify and Hulu at the Chateau St. George in Grasse, France, a little village outside Cannes.

The ‘Scandal’ star has a series with Hulu based on the book ‘Little Fires Everywhere,’ which she is executive producing with Reese Witherspoon.

Spotify And Hulu Host A Night For Creators, Innovators And Artists: Kerry and Mary Katrantzou have a long and successful history together. The 2015 Golden Globes, PALEYFEST LA and TCA Press Tour spring to mind, but my absolutely favourite was her stamp print dress worn to ‘The Details’ LA premiere. In Kerry’s latest look from the Spring 2018 collection, I’m happy to see Mary Katrantzou continually employing vibrant colours and prints. This one calls to mind a Tetris game, which Kerry successfully styles with orange pumps. When it comes to contoured waist I’m curious how it would’ve looked in orange, green or turquoise.

Twitter’s #HereWeAre At Cannes Lions: Yesterday Kerry’s summer vacation style came out to play in Missoni. The signature sweeping maxi dress in an equally quintessential multi-coloured stripes was like a cool breeze on a sweltering hot day. I love how the look was kept fresh with a white clutch, aqua peep-toes and gorgeous deep curls. Someone hand the girl a sangria.

Princess Eugenie In Roland Mouret & Princess Beatrice In Mary Katrantzou – Serpentine Summer Party 2018

Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice of York attended the Serpentine Summer Party 2018 on Tuesday (June 19) in London, alongside Lady Kitty Spencer and Ciara.

Princess Eugenie: Joined by her fiancé Jack Brooksbank, the Princess wore a Roland Mouret asymmetrical top patterned with Japanese blooms that was simply styled with black trousers. If you’re having a case of deja vu, that’s because Yara Shahdi wore the same top recently.

Princess Beatrice: The royal looked fabulous wearing a beautiful dress from Mary Katrantzou’s Resort 2018 collection. I adore multi-coloured peacock-printed detail that was embossed on the super-shiny fabric of this flared design. When it came to the accessories, I loved the metallic silver sandals and smart black box bag engraved with ‘Be Nice Be Cool’, but the leather moto jacket felt a bit like she was trying a bit too hard.

Jane Fonda In Mary Katrantzou – L’Oreal Cannes Event

Jane Fonda embraced print at the L’Oreal event during the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday (May 12), joining Aishwarya Rai.

The legendary actress struck a pose in a Mary Katrantzou Resort 2018 gown which showcased the designer’s capability of creating patterns that enhance the body.

The clever abstract design is reminiscent of a peacock with the full skirt echoing the exquisite fan of colour of the animal’s tail, creating a luxurious finish.

Sarah Flint shoes and ornate jewels elevated the glamour.

Cate Blanchett In Mary Katrantzou – ‘Cold War (Zimna Wojna)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett was back on the red carpet at the ‘Cold War (Zimna Wojna)’ Cannes Film Festival premiere on Thursday (May 10) in France.

The president of the Cannes jury was clad in custom Mary Katrantzou which showcased the designer’s mastery of pattern.

The graphic black and white print juxtaposed with the joyous explosion of colour brings to mind an artwork in progress. The design is actually inspired by painting by numbers and builds on a print from Spring 2018.

This dynamic silk faille bespoke dress is a finished work of art with its smattering of sequins and Swarovski crystals hand-placed on the gown for more wow factor.

It’s a unique approach to embellishment and was as striking as any fully beaded style.

Balloon and mullet hems can divisive, but they come together here for an ebullient finish that I think will win over many.

If you are bored with cape gowns, this will be like a breath of fresh air.

Three precious butterfly rings set in colored titanium from Chopard’s Haute Joaillerie Collection and gold Aquazzura Eclipse pumps completed her look.

Queen Maxima of The Netherlands In Mary Katrantzou – Kingsday Concert

Queen Maxima of The Netherlands put on a colourful display at the Kingsday Concert on Monday (April 9) in Groningen, Netherlands.

She was clad in a Mary Katrantzou Resort 2017 ensemble which had such dynamism.

The designer has garnered a reputation for her mastery of prints and this outfit demonstrates why. The style has elevated sporty stripes into an elegant, striking dress.

This is a look that I want to see from all angles, in motion and not.

Adding more dimension, she accessorized with a forest green clutch, heels and an embellished belt.
