2017 Unitas Gala

With New York Fashion Week in full swing, Unitas hosted its third annual gala against human trafficking on Tuesday (September 12) in New York where a bounty of beauties wore their best statement dresses.

Daphne Groeneveld: The model’s inky gown contained many of the current red carpet staples including cutouts and an exposed shoulder. The fishnet detailing was refreshing, but I still got a sense of déjà vu.

Ebonee Davis: Not bothered about showing thighs and boobs, the model donned a white La Perla gown with plunging front and racy slit. I would have liked to see one less detail on the bodice, be it the tie waist, flared panels or contrasting bra.

Barbara Fialho: Shimmering in a Rapha Mendonca dress, the Brazilian beauty accessorised with coordinating Alexandre Birman shoes and an Elena Ghisellini clutch. I’m sure some will be fatigued with more ab cutouts and the thigh-high slit.

Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

The list of lovelies at Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’ on Friday (September 8) in New York City was seemingly unending, as a number of stars joined Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, and Kim Kardashian.

Gigi Hadid: Her hyper-embellished Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2017 ensemble, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, was so intricate and powerful of a statement that it really didn’t require the rhinestone clogs.

Kaia Gerber: Cindy Crawford’s model daughter was all grown up in a slinky Kristian Aadnevik Fall 2017 mini that had her looking like her mom more and more.

Kendall Jenner: There was little left to the imagination in this Dolce & Gabbana ruched, sheer number. Yet, ironically in spite of the see-through, I couldn’t help but still get a certain sophisticated, glam vibe with the look, which I will chalk up to its silhouette along with Kendall’s Old-Hollywood waves, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and Jimmy Choo sandals.

Nicole Kidman In Oscar de la Renta – ‘The Upside’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

After a couple brushes with her frou-frou, princess side, Nicole Kidman was back to more streamlined, feminine glamour at the premiere of ‘The Upside’ during the 2017 Toronto Film Festival on Friday (September 8).

The actress donned an Oscar de la Renta dress, notable for the elegant allure of its ruffle neckline and fit-and-flare silhouette.

Nicki Minaj In Oscar de la Renta – Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

After her Latex looks at the MTV Video Music Awards, I wasn’t sure what to expect next from Nicki Minaj on the red carpet.

But, she returned to her more glamorous ways at the Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’ event on Friday (September 8) in New York City.

She actually took a far left turn in the glam lane, with this feminine and romantic Oscar de la Renta Fall 2017 gown that was void of a plunge, slit, mullet or body-con silhouette, all of which she tends to favour.

For that alone, I was drawn to the look.

But, given the crush of colourful embellishment already enlivening the dress, the jewels were completely unnecessary as they competed for the spotlight. Then again, Nicki was never one to be a minimalist.

Rihanna In Oscar de la Renta – Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Launch

Rihanna is one of those A-listers who has proved time and time again that there’s nothing she can’t do.

She’s has gone from singer, fashion designer, actress and now she created a beauty brand: Fenty Beauty by Rihanna.

To celebrate the launch of the highly anticipated makeup line, the singer held a party Duggal Greenhouse on Thursday (September 7) in New York City, ahead of its midnight launch on Sephora.com and Harvey Nichols.

For the occasion, the Elle US September cover star stood out in a custom Oscar de la Renta canary yellow jersey top cinched at the waist paired with matching full-length voluminous skirt, which revealed sultry gold custom gold René Caovilla over-the-knee gladiator sandals.

I’m not at all surprised by this look. Volume has been Rihanna’s red carpet M.O. for every major red carpet events since Cannes.

It’s a really fun, vibrant outfit, looks stunning against the black backdrop, however, a part of me wishes there was a little less fabric in the skirt.

Emmy Rossum In Oscar la Renta – Paleyfest Fall Preview Presents Shameless

Emmy Rossum was back on the red carpet for the PaleyFest Fall TV preview of ‘Shameless’ on Wednesday (September 6) in Beverly Hills, California.

There are many facets to Emmy’s red carpet style, but I’ll always adore her ladylike looks.

And what’s more ladylike than Oscar de la Renta?

This lush velvet dress hails from the brands Fall 2017 collection, yet it pays homage to the late designers signatures – femininity and ultra-refinement – while being championed with a pretty fit-and-flare construction.

I was torn as to whether this is black or midnight blue. Judging by Emmy’s purple Gianvito Rossi purple pumps, I’m going to go with black.

Impeccable as always.
