Models @ The 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

It was all cheekbones and centre-partings as models descended on the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City.

Bella Hadid: The model is a fan of flashing flesh but kept it sophisticated in this blazer-style dress from Off-White Fall 2017. Top marks for the flared sleeves and retro full fringe. We’ll ignore the pale pink lunch bag style clutch.

Maye Musk: I do love the humour and personality in this Rosie Assoulin Spring 2017 dress. It’s unashamedly extroverted and doesn’t apologise for its bling accessories courtesy of Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry.

Karen Elson: Ah, red and green a hallowed combination that almost never goes wrong. Unfortunately, the tried and tested combo falls short here. The Anna Sui Fall 2017 dress is a confusing array of frills, draping, and puff sleeves. Combined with heavy shoes, this look is overwhelmingly bad.

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.

Priyanka Chopra In Michael Kors Collection – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

Fresh from her Berlin ‘Baywatch’ promo tour, Priyanka Chopra was back on the red carpet for the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5).

The actress looked sensational in her custom-made Michael Kors Collection dress. The sensuous ensemble worked perfectly with the black python Michael Kors ‘Smith’ sandals and merlot lipstick.

A black belt cinched the waist to create the most enviable silhouette. The length of the dress, plunging neckline, and sequin embellishments all added some youth and fun to what could have been a severe look.

Cohesive from head to toe, this look was a masterclass in how to make an ensemble feminine and sexy, without being vampy.

Katherine Langford In Michael Kors Collection – Netflix’s ’13 Reasons Why’ LA Screening

Katherine Langford brought some sophistication to the Netflix ’13 Reasons Why’ screening in LA on Friday (June 2).

There was something stateswoman-like about Katherine’s perfectly poised look.

Her demure black pebble-crepe Michael Kors Collection Fall 2017 dress seemed a little too mature, however, we’re used to seeing Katherine in youthful energetic looks, with plenty of personality, and this ensemble felt a bit bland.

The Jimmy Choo shoes and Beladora earrings both felt predictable and safe. The actress’s beehive hairstyle added to the outdated feel, with her cat-eye makeup providing the only modern detail in this look.

This ensemble, whilst refined and elegant, feels more like workwear than red-carpet glamour.

14th Annual Inspiration Awards

A trio of starlets held court at the 14th annual Inspiration Awards on Friday (June 2) in Beverly Hills, California.

Lea Michele: The crispness of the white floral stencil patterning in this Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2017 cutout dress caught my eye. However, I would have far better appreciated it on Lea sans so much liberal use of bronzer—and with a sleek bun.

January Jones: Taking her look down more playful territory, January wore a Christopher Bu Spring 2017 striped dress paired back to a Christopher Bu Resort 2017 kitschy, embroidered blazer. Her ribbon-tied ponytail along with a coral lip completed the cute ratio, but it still didn’t quite add up for me.

Yara Shahidi: At first, Yara’s ADEAM Spring 2016 shirt dress may seem more on the plain Jane side. But, she wore it with such panache—sleeves rolled up and styled with Tamara Mellon ‘Reverse Frontline’ shoes and John Hardy jewels—that I quickly warmed to the look. Also, I love that you can see the split shoulder detail.

Were you inspired by anyone’s style here?

Nicole Kidman In Michael Kors Collection – ‘The Beguiled’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Nicole Kidman attended her fourth premiere in a row when she stepped onto the red carpet for ‘The Beguiled’ Cannes Film Festival premiere this evening (May 23).

If you’re anything like me, you believe she’s been successful three out of four times; with this Michael Kors Collection Pre-Fall 2017 gown giving her a hat-trick of BDOTW-worthy looks.

I love how her gown evokes the spirit of the roaring ’20s, gracefully sculpting a slender silhouette with an overlaid of long fringes for a dynamic sway – I bet it was mesmerizing in person.

Styled with a deep rouge lip, Gianvito Rossi ‘Portofino’ sandals and Harry Winston jewels, I wonder if this will your favourite of her four look?
