Sofia Carson In Monique Lhuillier – 2017 Princess Grace Awards Gala

Sofia Carson joined Princess Charlene of Monaco for the 2017 Princess Grace Awards Gala at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Wednesday (October 25) in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress stunned wearing a Monique Lhuillier nude tulle gown enriched with floral appliqués which looks like it belongs on the set of a magical Disney movie.

While some might be wishing this was worn by Queen of the princess gowns; Fan Bingbing. I think Sofia’s olive complexion is better suited to this hue.

Does this fairytale gown have BDOTW written all over it?

amfAR Los Angeles 2017

A crush of stars came out for amfAR Los Angeles 2017 on Friday (October 13) in Beverly Hills, California.

Heidi Klum: At this point, I’m always prepared to be disappointed with a Heidi look, but she actually stepped up to the plate in this Ralph & Russo Fall 2017 Couture gown that was a far more modern and sophisticated form of glittery glam for her.  The look was of course styled with Lorraine Schwartz  jewels.

Dita Von Teese: Designer Ulyana Sergeenko and Dita are a perfect match, as can be seen in this Demi-Couture gown that prizes the feminine form with its provocative bustier silhouette and seductive thigh slit.

Kate Hudson: Playing to her buzz cut, Kate kept it cool and mod in this David Koma Resort 2018 gown that scintillated with mirror-like embellishment.  A Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch completed her look.

Post Emmys Parties

Following the big show, came the Emmy’s after parties hosted by HBO and FOX which saw a few celebrities change into second looks.

Julianne Hough: When it comes to after-parties, the idea is to switch into something more comfortable to get your groove on without the fear of someone stepping on the train you’ve been carrying around during the awards ceremony, but Julianne has different idea. She used the occasion to dress up again, wearing a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2018 gown with a train longer than her Marchesa gown. I love the ethereal nature of the gown, but I really dislike the clutch here and I feel like she’s a tad overdressed for the occasion.

Sarah Hyland: When I look at Sarah in this Vatanika Spring 2018 LBD, I’m like, “yes, she gets it. She came to party”.

2017 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party

In advance of the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday, Entertainment Weekly hosted its Pre-Emmy Party on Friday (September 15) in West Hollywood, California.

Sophia Bush: This red Stella McCartney body-skimming dress with car wash slits held potential, but I wish the styling had been more complementary. A tonal red sandal like the Edie Parker clutch would have provided a more streamlined effect but I would have stopped the red at the makeup—red eye shadow is always a tough look to pull off.

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host also went bold with the eye shadow, hers an intense shade of violet. However, her sultry Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2018 floral-embroidered dress commanded enough attention on its own. I love that she didn’t resort to black pumps, but I’m wishing for a sandal here.

Mandy Moore
: With a shiny new play on an LBD, the ‘This Is Us’ actress donned a Sally LaPointe Pre-Fall 2017 sequin dress styled with Sophia Webster shoes and a red Jimmy Choo clutch. The style-forward edge of the turtleneck sweater piece grew on me, although at first, I did want to remove it.

Lorde In Monique Lhuillier & Jourden x Nike VaporMax – 2017 MTV VMAs

Lorde attended the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (August 27) , where she performed her new single, ‘Homemade Dynamite’.

Red Carpet: It’s not often Lorde gives us a princess moment, but this Monique Lhuillier Spring 2018 gown was one to behold. The look was simple and effortless and one for her hall of fame. It would’ve been easy to slip a quirk in here, as it was the VMAs, but I’m happy she didn’t disrupt the purity of the look.

Performance: Cranking things up several gears; Lorde channeled her inner Bjork for the performance wearing an Jourden x Nike VaporMax silver ruffled mullet dress paired with Nike sweats and sneakers. It may seem like an odd combo, but I will take this as a performance piece when it could’ve so easily – with a few more inches – been a red carpet look.

Sarah Paulson In Monique Lhuillier – 2017 Summer TCA Tour

Flower power knew no bounds for Sarah Paulson at the 2017 TCA Tour in which she sat on a panel for ‘American Horror Story: Cult’ on Wednesday (August 9).

I believe every hue of the rainbow must have been represented in this Monique Lhuillier Fall 2017 floral-forward frock that will certainly satiate anyone’s cry for summer colour.

With a dress this busy in blooms, I’m glad she simplified the styling down to black Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, Eva Fehren jewels and a petal-pink lip.

With so many bold flowers, the femininity of the look was a given. But, there almost seemed to be a certain darker, foreboding mystique to the look, as well. Or, maybe that’s just because I’m equating the look to ‘American Horror Story’.
