Millie Bobby Brown In Rodarte – 2017 MTV VMAs

You weren’t a fan of Millie Bobby Brown’s Teen Choice Awards look, so I’m intrigued to find out your thoughts on her 2017 MTV Video Music Awards outfit on Sunday (August 27).

Rodarte is no stranger to the dark side, often flirting with Gothic romance and disheveled grandeur in its collections, however, this Spring 2017 blouse and skirt possess neither.

That is partly due to the youthful exuberance of Millie plus the playful polka dots, bohemian undertone and dramatic proportions of the ensemble.

Shunning the standard sandals and pumps by wearing utilitarian boots adds further weight to this measured red carpet look.

Yara Shahidi In Zimmermann & Rodarte – 2017 MTV VMAs

Yara Shahidi also opted for two stylish looks for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (August 27), with asymmetry her red carpet M.O.

The first was a sleek Zimmermann gold gown which may have suffered with some creases at the waist, yet she still looked utterly radiant.

This was my favourite of the two.

Her Rodarte Fall 2017 pearl embellished bustier top and skirt possessed plenty after-party appeal. I love how fresh and youthful this look is.

However, looking at both ensembles, my feeling is that her Rodarte look would’ve looked better with her rose-gold Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Darcie’ sandals.

Thoughts?

Alicia Vikander In Rodarte – ‘Tulip Fever’ London Screening

Alicia Vikander kept things very simple when she attended the VIP screening of her latest film ‘Tulip Fever’ at the Soho Hotel in London on Sunday (August 13).

Opting for a Rodarte 2017 black dress, the sophisticated actress styled the pretty lace dress with sleek black strappy Rupert Sanderson ‘New Mitra’ sandals and Delfina Delettrez jewels.

To me this classic style with a Victoriana twist is effortless, allowing her beauty shine through.

The natural waves framed her face adding to the overall relaxed feel.

Simply elegant or simply boring?

Tessa Thompson In Marc Jacobs & Rodarte – Marvel Studios Hall H Panel & Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con Party

Tessa Thompson has been at Comic-Con International 2017, where the ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ actress attended the Marvel Studios Hall H Panel on Saturday (July 22) and the Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con Party the same day in San Diego, California.

Marvel Studios Hall H Panel: When stripped of its dynamic red jacket from the Marc Jacobs Resort 2018 lookbook, this fringed LBD didn’t have quite the same impact as something about the sheer top translated as a bit unfinished. But, the glam-mod ’60s mood was still a sassy one, to which she further played into with her Giuseppe Zanotti platforms.

Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con Party: Fully immersed in the crafty yet whimsical notions of the Rodarte label, Tessa wore one of the ruffled lace numbers from the Fall 2017 collection. The luminescent silver treatment possessed a certain romance, but I kept wondering if the dress would have been better sans sleeves.

Front Row @ Rodarte Spring 2018


It was Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s first time to show in Paris, and their Spring 2018 presentation on Sunday (July 2) during Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week featured a trio of stars who were in attendance to take in the garden-centric setting.

Kirsten Dunst: I loved seeing this Fall 2017 blouse and skirt stripped down from its more overwrought original presentation, as it allowed the romantic side of its edgy, gothic beauty to shine. While a sleeker bun would have not gotten in the way of the ruffled, tulle shoulders, her curls did bring a relaxed femininity to the look that I could appreciate.

Brie Larson: Keeping the Rodarte jewels, including the highly decorative, statement earrings and bracelet, intact, Brie likewise embraced the darker whimsy of this Fall 2017 spidery lace dress. I am glad she nixed the boots in favour of a sleeker sandal.

Tracee Ellis Ross: Tracee can always be relied upon to embrace a quirky style viewpoint, but I couldn’t get on board with this black-and-white Fall 2016 lace dress—most especially because of her unusual selection of the beige Fall 2017 motorcycle jacket in ditzy florals that she wore atop it. Rodarte jewels in the form of that singular earring only made the look more clunky and confused.
