Poppy Delevingne In Narciso Rodriguez – 2018 National Geographic Upfront

Poppy Delevingne attended the 2018 National Geographic Upfront event for the FURTHER Front immersive experience on Wednesday (April 18) in New York City.

The ‘Genius: Picasso’ actress seems to be in a minimalist mood of late, first wearing a pared-back Cushnie et Ochs look and now turning up in this Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2018 frock.

It was all about clean lines with the asymmetrical neckline cut to reveal the white strap.

Fluffy Charlotte Olympia shoes definitely don’t play into the minimalist aesthetic and were no doubt added to give the austere style a whimsical touch. Had the dress been hemmed to mimic the lookbook version, she might have had a better chance of getting away with the shoes. Now they seem too froufrou against the black dress.

I’m also feeling let down by the hair and makeup.

‘A Wrinkle in Time’ New York Screening Red Carpet Roundup

Head-turning short silhouettes were the preferred look at the ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ New York screening on Wednesday (March 7) with costars showing some leg. They joined Storm Reid.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw: The British beauty cut a sharp figure in a black Narciso Rodriguez Pre-Fall 2018 dress. The seams and pleating molded to her body and brought out the tougher finish in the fabric. The orange-red lipstick added a pop of colour while playing into the classic-with-a-twist mood.

Reese Witherspoon: The brocade fabric on the Co dress might have a moody sentiment, but there is still a playfulness to the look thanks to the puff sleeves and gently flared skirt. The belted waist helps balance the volume on top while adding a feminine charm that the actress favours. Her smile was as magnetic as her silver shoes.  

Mindy Kaling: The actress brought some colour with a vivid red Jill Jill Stuart bell sleeve frock. The flared sleeves add drama to the sheath shape with the white shoes bringing freshness. From the pose, one might think she is self-conscious about the front slit, but she revealed the sultry detail in other photographs.

Models @ The Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Models stormed the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California, with a range of head-turning looks—for better or worse.

Alessandra Ambrosio: The naked dress had another showing with this Ralph & Russo Couture embellished, sheer design, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. There will be no doubt her body isn’t rocking, but I know eyes will be rolling at the complete transparency of the look.

Ashley Graham: This Rubin Singer gown featured a recognizable, slit-to-there silhouette, but it was the gleaming sheen that upped the ante. A swept-back hairstyle and Sophia Webster sandals completed the look.

Lily Aldridge: The golden-goddess look served Lily well in this Versace liquid-gold gown that had a certain chainmail effect. Christian Louboutin heels and Bvlgari jewels and bag finished her glamorously regal entrance.

2018 amfAR Gala New York Red Carpet Roundup

The glamour was at a high at the 2018 amfAR Gala New York on Wednesday (February 7) where lovely ladies joined Lucy Hale, Olivia Culpo and Halsey.

Sara Sampaio: The Portuguese beauty had a princess moment in Armani Privé Spring 2006. The glistening tulle was accented with the embellished straps. You’ll be forgiven for thinking that the Chopard jewels were part of the original look as they coordinate so perfectly.

Joan Smalls: Forgoing the glitzy gown, the model donned a Dolce & Gabbana suit with John Hardy jewels. The stark black piping against the muted brocade fabric creates a dynamic display of contrasts, but I wish she saved this ensemble for another event. Against the high octane dresses, it feels a touch out of place.

Coco Rocha: Projecting slinky glamour, the Canadian model showcased the pockets on her Greta Constantine Pre-Fall 2018 dress. There are details aplenty on the gown so I was thankful she lost the coordinating gloves from the lookbook version.

Saoirse Ronan In Narciso Rodriguez – AARP’s 17th Annual Movies For Grownups Awards

Saoirse Ronan was at AARP’s 17th Annual Movies For Grownups Awards on Monday (February 5) in Beverly Hills, California, where Greta Gerwig also dropped by in her vintage Cardinali frock.

I have a feeling that some immediate comparisons will be drawn between this Narciso Rodriguez Resort 2018 scuba crepe dress and her Cushnie et Ochs design worn earlier in the day—simply by virtue of their similar sheath silhouette and cutout.

However, there will be no comparison in my mind, as I found this look to be so different in mood and effect.

The blissful pale-blue hue was absolutely divine on Saoirse, and here, the fit was impeccable.

I love the glamorous impact of the sleek hairstyle and Nikos Koulis earrings to round out the look—the black gemstones of which she echoed in her Charlotte Olympia strappy sandals for even more striking impact.
