Kendall Jenner stars in the Missoni Spring 2018 Ad Campaign

Gigantic pictorial patchworks by the American artist Rachel Hayes are suggestively framed by White Sands National Monument and transformed into poetic multicolored extensions of the Missoni collections and guiding themes of the new Summer 2018 Campaign.

Conceived by Angela Missoni and shot by star fashion photographer Harley Weir, Kendall Jenner appears sinuous and filiform; resonating mystique and glamour. The face is hidden by the extra-large, fluidly-draped brims of Missoni hats in concentric stripes, as though they were umbrellas grazing the shoulder and shielding her from the searing New Mexico sun.

Jenner is the protagonist, together with model Filip Roseen, in imagery that portrays the looks from Missoni’s Women’s, Men’s and Eyewear Collections for Summer 2018.

Visions of an ode to natural charm and beauty are sensually and boundlessly energized through color. An expression of Missoni’s language, color unfolds in iconic vertical-and-horizontal stripes as well as the heterogenous rectangles found in Rachel Hayes’ work: patchworks of soft, sensual polychromatic silk that create sumptuously fluid designs against the dazzling monocromia of the glimmering desert landscape. They become shaded, transparent backdrops superimposed upon the azure skies painted in the background while filtering rays of sunlight; fluttering flags, billowing sails distended by the wind. Trails of material and tails of color generate a spectacular continuum within the garment, transforming it into a pulsating and infinite emblem.

The Teen Vogue Summit LA: Keynote Conversation

A number of starlets turned out for the Teen Vogue Summit LA: Keynote Conversation with ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ director Ava Duvernay and actresses Storm Reid and Rowan Blanchard on Saturday (December 2) in Playa Vista, California.

Storm Reid: The 14-year-old PYT had fun with shimmery fringe in a JI OH Spring 2017 dress with white booties. But, I was most interested in her beautiful curls.

Yara Shahidi: I like that Yara introduced this zesty lime-green hue into her 3.1 Phillip Lim ensemble with the on-trend, navy paper-bag waist trousers.

Elaine Welteroth: Also channeling the retro flair of white boots, Elaine put a funky twist on the pink primness of her Proenza Schouler Spring 2018 wrap dress which Ana de Armas previously has worn. As with Storm, I was more focused on her hair, which made the look more striking as a result.

‘The Star’ LA Premiere

There were many stylish ladies out at the LA premiere of the animated film ‘The Star’ on Sunday (November 12).

Meagan Good: The actress opted for stunning simplicity in this white Zeena Zaki gown. The snowy colour played into the festive theme, matching the white carpet. Some of the details did get lost, but the dress’s immaculate cut did not. Le Vian diamond earrings added some sparkle to the ensemble.

Gina Rodriguez: The ‘Jane the Virgin’ actress often embraces colour and feminine shapes. This Missoni fringe dress spoke to both points. The multicoloured banding with embroidery had a striking finish thanks to the play of textures and shapes. The coordinating fringed sleeves were a joyful touch, as were the Casadei pumps.

amfAR Milano 2017

Beautiful babes lit up amfAR Milano 2017 on Thursday (September 21) wearing their most striking and varied ensembles.

Jourdan Dunn: Proving that shine and feathers aren’t needed to make an entrance, the model struck a pose in this bold Naeem Khan Fall 2017 gown. Wisely, she kept her styling simple to let all the abstract details on the dress be appreciated.

Alessandra Ambrosio: The Brazilian beauty’s Julien Macdonald Fall 2017 gown had lingerie leanings befitting a Victoria’s Secret supermodel. The triangle bikini top against the long sleeves is a strong contrast and makes me think this would have worked better as two separate dresses.

2017 TCA Awards

Other stars were honoured along with Reese Witherspoon for their respective work at the 2017 TCA Awards, held during the Summer Television Critics Association Tour on Saturday (August 5) in Beverly Hills, California.

Elisabeth Moss: While Elisabeth’s style is often hit or miss, here she impressed in a shimmery emerald dress by The Vampire’s Wife paired with embellished pumps, an Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch, and Irene Neuwirth jewels.

Mandy Moore: The ‘This Is Us’ actress continued to experiment with new iterations of her style in this Missoni dress recognizable for its signature patterning and textural work. She teamed the look with an Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch and EFFY Jewelry, adding brightness to the desert-tinged metallic colourways with a cherry-red lip.

Kareena Kapoor Khan is Instaglam in Missoni

A post shared by Tanya Ghavri (@tanghavri) on

Kareena Kapoor Khan was at her nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar’s book launch over the weekend in Mumbai, India.

But, with this look, the Indian actress had everyone wanting to read up on her style.

With the recognizable patterning of a Missoni design, her top and skirt delivered the label’s distinct variety of glamour. I love the rich marriage of jewel-toned hues in the royal purple and aqua teal punctuated by black and white.

It was her extreme Valliyan tassel earrings, however, that really took the look to the next level for a memorably dramatic finish.

Saint Laurent sandals completed the ensemble.
