Celebrities Love…Ralph & Russo Couture

The hottest—and hautest—duo in Hollywood right now? None other than designers Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo of Ralph & Russo.

Their Spring 2017 Couture show was made for the red carpet with glorious look after glorious look—55 in total—all with a take-your-breath-away sensibility.

Ethereal draping, sultry bustier styling, cascading ruffles, enchanting arrays of embellishment, sophisticated lines, sculptural silhouettes… such are the magical ways of a Ralph & Russo confection.

So, it’s no wonder that A-listers have fallen in love with the spellbinding styles of these seductive showstoppers.

Celebrity darlings including Hailee Steinfeld, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, Priyanka Chopra, and Sara Sampaio have all gravitated towards the house’s gorgeous gowns.

Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, who strutted in the Spring 2017 Couture show, couldn’t get enough of the designer—bringing the runway to the red carpet with two looks in one night for the Oscars parties.

And, Brie Larson also has two Ralph & Russo gowns to her name now in as many days, first at the Oscars parties then at the ‘Kong: Scull Island’ premiere.

Eight is currently the magic number, as that’s the number of Ralph & Russo dazzlers we’ve seen just since Sunday’s 2017 Oscars.

And I say, keeping them coming—every day of the week.

Brie Larson In Ralph & Russo Couture – ‘Kong: Skull Island’ London Premiere

Fresh from her appearance at the 2017 Oscars and the Vanity Fair Party, Brie Larson took to the red carpet in London’s Leicester Square for the premiere of ‘Kong: Skull Island’ on Tuesday (February 28).

Bringing the girls out to play, the actress wore an exemplary Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture gown (her second from this collection in 3 days); which was richly embellished and smolderingly seductive.

It’s not a style we’re used to from Brie, but from her awards season run it feels like she’s positioning herself as a fashion force to be reckoned with.

Some might be put off by the boobage, but I love how she’s stepped out of her comfort-zone.

Those of you who are keeping count; that’s eight Ralph & Russo Couture gowns we’ve seen since Sunday.

Jessica Alba In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Jessica Alba made a long-awaited return to the red carpet for the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday night (February 26).

She wore a pale blue Ralph & Russo Couture gown from the Spring 2017 collection.

I want to like this look. I really do.

I appreciate the pastel color in the sea of nudes and whites, and it’s a complete dream in motion on the runway. But somehow, Jessica is giving me ‘Barbie in a 50s dressing gown’ vibes.

Do you see what I mean, or am I crazy? Could a bit more grown-up hair styling have helped elevate the frothy number?

I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention that her jewel-encrusted Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ box clutch is a true work of art, and I appreciate its hard edge against the soft, flowy gown.

Giuseppe Zanotti shoes completed her look.

Hailee Steinfeld In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Hailee Steinfeld wore her second Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture gown to the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday night (February 26).

The halter-neck gown is quite striking on Hailee’s frame, and the top-to bottom beading and hybrid cape/train are bringing plenty of drama.

I love how the lining fits it purpose without nullifying any of the magic of this exquisite piece.

The nude, jewel-encrusted Ralph & Russo Couture gown needed little jewelry.

Brie Larson In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Brie Larson made her way into the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (February 26).

Changing from her black Oscar de la Renta gown to this Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture emerald dress, she kept her successful style streak going strong.

The richness of this jewel-toned hue was lovely on her, with additional drama provided by way of the high slit and side train.

I am happy to see she pulled her hair back into a sleeker bun for this look.

Alessandra Ambrosio In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2017 Oscar Parties

Alessandra Ambrosio was on the Oscars parties circuit on Sunday (February 26), where she wore a double feature of Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture looks. As the supermodel closed out their Spring 2017 show, it’s no wonder she was inspired to bring the runway to the red carpet.

Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party: First up was this delicious, blush-hued confection that was on the Red Carpet Wish List for Isabeli Fontana. But Alessandra wore it just a gracefully, with the sinuous silhouette and draping of the backless dress providing an alluring sense of seductive appeal without a hint of try-hard.

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: For her next Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture look, she turned up the razzle dazzle in an asymmetrical red corset gown. Yes, the dress was dynamic on its own terms by virtue of its colour and slit. But it was her emerald jewels that set it on fire.

Priyanka Chopra In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2017 Oscars

Priyanka Chopra attended the 2017 Oscars on Sunday night (February 26).

The actress wore a Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture gown with Jimmy Choo ‘Pearl’ sandals and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

While I fear Priyanka’s look may get lost in the sea of other white and silver gowns tonight, the geometric gown is truly gorgeous and the sharp lines of the bodice are intriguing and unique.

However, is it fair to say the matching diamond cuffs are a bit too Wonder Woman for my taste?
