‘Midnight Sun’ LA Premiere

Patrick Schwarzenegger, Quinn Shephard and Bella Thorne graced the red carpet at the ‘Midnight Sun’ LA premiere on Thursday (March 15).

Patrick Schwarzenegger: The actor looked dapper in a Dzojchen suit. The one-button jacket created crisp lines for a thoroughly modern finish. The bright white shirt and trainers enhanced the sharp suave nature of the ensemble with the footwear adding a cool casualness.

Quinn Shephard: The actress really stood out in this trio. Her Christopher Kane Resort 2018 black ruffle sleeve dress looked like it was destined for only the pages of a magazine, but I’m impressed with how well she pulls this off. The right undergarments helps, followed by the confidence in making such an intricate design work. Styled with Giuseppe Zanotti star embellished sandals and a rouge lip, Quinn finds a place on my one-to-watch list.

Bella Thorne: One of the constants of the actress’s style of late has been unpredictability and this Raisa & Vanessa fringe corset dress played into that. It had such a rich opulence with the mix of heavy embellishment. The form-fitting shape had a sensual allure, but it was tempered with the longer skirt and vintage sentiment. She could have overcooked the look with accessories so the Sergio Rossi heels and Norman Silverman jewelry were wise options.

Halsey In Raisa & Vanessa and Galia Lahav Couture – 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Halsey opted for yet another provocative look for the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday (March 11) in Inglewood, California.

While dangerously short, I immediately saw the fun side in her Raisa & Vanessa Fall 2018 animal print two-piece look.

Mostly because my first thought was Halsey is channeling a grown up, rebellious Pebbles Flintstone.

Her second look saw her wear her second look from Galia Lahav’s Spring 2018 Couture collection within a week.

On this occasion she opted for a fetishist vision of the classic little black dress. I much preferred this over her first look.

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.

Karen Fairchild In Monique Lhuillier & Kimberly Schlapman In Raisa & Vanessa – 2018 Grammy Awards

Recording artists Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Down were also in attendance at the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) in New York City, alongside their male counterparts in the group Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet.

Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2018 collection took a lighter approach to the designer’s signature hyper-feminine aesthetic. That sensibility was witnessed in the feathered, floaty enchantment of Karen’s gown, rendered in pastel tones with delicate embellishment throughout.

As a result, her thick, dark waves felt a bit heavy, so I wonder if a sleek bun would have served the look better.

As for Kimberly, she opted for a pretty-in-pink Raisa & Vanessa Spring 2018 corset dress, decorated with embellishment and ruffles for a romantic effect.

I was more taken by her bouncy, beautiful blonde curls, though, which for me had just as much of a starring role here.

Both ladies carried white #TimesUp roses, as the pins would have been ill-suited to their gowns.

2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show After Show Party

The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show After Party took place on Monday (November 20) in Shanghai, China, with a wide ranging mix of styles.

I decided to split them into categories this year staring with: My Favourites.

Cindy Bruna: This Brandon Maxwell Spring 2017 suit originally stormed the runway with a blouse, but Cindy made the look her own by opting to go without.  The excessive boobage might turn off some, but I’m more intrigued by the impeccable tailoring.

Maria Borges: I’m a huge fan of Maria’s style, but I was blown away when she opted to wear this Tiffany Amber gown which proudly showcased her African roots. The dress, the belt and head wrap are gorgeous, but it’s the ‘going against the grain’ statement which I find most endearing.

Jourdana Phillips: You can’t get much chicer than a cream tuxedo dress styled with gold Giuseppe Zanotti rose-gold sandals.
