2017 amfAR Gala Cannes Model Roundup

The models were out in force for the amfAR Gala Cannes on Thursday (May 25) during the Cannes Film Festival.

Elsa Hosk: Striking a pose with a distinct pink, pinup mood, this Ermanno Scervino Fall 2017 gown had all the hallmarks of boudoir dressing with the exposed corset and sheer lace—distracting black heels notwithstanding.

Bianca Balti: What’s this? A model not baring it all? Bianca went for a more conservative stance in a Dolce & Gabbana black gown that oozed of old Hollywood glamour when styled with finger waves, statement jewels, and Gianvito Rossi shoes.

Joan Smalls: Between the length, the ubiquitous slit, and the collar-style neck piece, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this Elie Saab Spring 2017 Couture dress paired with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and gigantic hoop earrings. Hip-hop, tribal glam?

Mariah Carey In Philipp Plein – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

There was a brief moment of joy when I saw Mariah Carey on the red carpet for the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar party on Sunday (February 26).

Without a sequin, rhinestone or leotard in sight, I was about to praise the singer for finally doing something new.

That was until I saw how Mariah’s twins were taped into this black and yellow, leopard print Philipp Plein Spring 2017 gown.

If I wasn’t familiar with Mariah’s forced smile, I was say she was wincing in pain.

This could’ve been so right had the look been modified to house the twins.

Ellie Goulding In Philipp Plein – 2017 BRIT Awards

Ellie Goulding attended the 2017 Brit Awards on Wednesday (February 22) in London, England.

I know what Ellie was trying to do here – go for the vampy look – but I just don’t think it works. The dress, by Philip Plein, features a chain detail cut out that is already quite busy, but the embellished halter neck and slit up the front proves too much.

I thought this dress might be a little too small for Ellie, but even on the model the fabric around the middle is bunching, which is never a good look.

This dress is just too heavy for her. The saving grace is her hair and dewy makeup, which always looks on point.

Olivia Culpo Front Row @ NYFW Fall 2017

There seemed to be hardly a front row seat without Olivia Culpo’s name on it during New York Fashion Week—her respective designer looks from each show reflecting the wide variety of presentations she frequented.

Noon By Noor: Mannish vamp was the mood with her all-black ensemble at the Noon By Noor show on Thursday (February 9), where her sleek bun and glossy crimson lip took the look from standard to sultry.

Cushnie Et Ochs: Pants again were in play at the Cushnie et Ochs show on Friday (February 10), but the most I noticed of them was where the waistband peeked through the deep plunge of the vest that actually seemed strangely ill-fitting. It compromised the outfit, as sometimes a plunge is just too deep. She accessorized with a Lee Savage clutch.

Zimmermann: From menswear to mega-feminine, Olivia flipped the script at the Zimmermann show on Monday (February 13) with a look from the label’s Spring 2017 collection that served up ruffled, lacy romanticism with an innocently sultry finish. With the lace-up boots, you can see the ‘sexy pirate’ edge that was rife throughout that collection.
