FKA Twigs In Rodarte – Swarovski’s 120th Anniversary Gala

FKA Twigs In Rodarte - Swarovski’s 120th Anniversary Gala

FKA twigs attended Swarovski’s 120th Anniversary Gala on Tuesday (April 28) in Wattens, Austria.

Her unique sense of style lives on in this Rodarte Spring 2015 look dominated by the whimsy of a seafoam-green netted dress that shimmers with the embellishment of Swarovski crystals.

Black ruffle sleeves and sheer detailing at the neckline struck a darker note to the pastel hues, providing a sense of messy discord that added intrigue of the design.

The singer’s tall black lace-up boots were a natural fit for her strong style attitude, with the boldest ruby lip and crown of braids following suit.

With this entrance, she showed the darker side of glitter as befitting her signature edge. Yay or nay?

Chloe Sevigny In Rodarte – 2015 Morbid Anatomy Museum Gala

Chloe Sevigny In Rodarte - 2015 Morbid Anatomy Museum Gala
Chloë Sevigny was back on the scene at the 2015 Morbid Anatomy Museum gala on Tuesday (April 21) in New York City.

Rather befitting to the event, the actress selected a Rodarte Spring 2015 dress styled with the same gladiator-inspired, webbed shoes seen on the runway.

Inspired by aquatic themes, the frock’s netted overlay and collection of trinket embroideries inspired a somewhat macabre mood, especially when styled with a gothic red lip and slicked-back hair.

The patchwork craftsiness of this design was never a favourite of mine, although marginal improvement could have come with Chloë’s styling, including the removal of the choker necklace and a less morose beauty approach.

That said, I suppose the look fits the bill for any event with ‘morbid anatomy’ in its name.

Hailee Steinfeld In Rodarte – 2015 MTV Movie Awards

Hailee Steinfeld In Rodarte - 2015 MTV Movie Awards

Hailee Steinfeld attended the 2015 MTV Movie Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (April 12) in Los Angeles, California.

Continuing her experimental streak, her latest look from the Rodarte Spring 2015 collection shows the starlet’s fearless, trend-forward style.

Wearing the ensemble as presented on the runway from the waist down, she exchanged the sweater for a forest-green, sheer chiffon blouse, creating a lighter, more diaphanous effect.

The Victoriana ruffled blouse, netted, wave-embroidered skirt, and webbed, lace-up Rodarte heels all created an edgy, artfully crazed spirit.

The cluttered, conceptual outfit could have easily turned swamp monster on some. But Hailee managed to somehow pull it off while maintaining a level of youthful sophistication—even if I did want to yank off that netted fabric.

Tessa Thompson Front Row @ Giulietta, Jenny Packham & Rodarte’s Fall 2015 Shows

Tessa Thompson Front Row @ Giulietta, Jenny Packham & Rodarte's Fall 2015 Shows

With New York Fashion Week coming to a close today, here is a quick look at ‘Selma’ star Tessa Thompson’s front row looks.

Giulietta: I love that she didn’t go for a safe option, not that there are many with Giulietta’s collections. With all her fellow FROWers opting for comfort in their heavy coats, the beauty stood out in her colourful threads.

Jenny Packham: Sadly this look really fell flat for me. The unflattering dress, the styling (especially the coat and hair) – nothing really excited me about this look.

Rodarte: Now this was more like it. Having shut down the red carpet in Rodarte at the ‘Selma’ New York premiere, the actress was no doubt first on the designer’s front row list. Dying over that studded boot/leggings combo, I also love the flamenco flare via the ruffled shirt. There is a lot going on, but it totally works for me (perhaps minus the oversized clutch). What say you?

Elle Fanning In Rodarte – Rodarte x Superga Dinner

Elle Fanning In Rodarte - Rodarte x Superga Dinner

Elle Fanning attended the Rodarte x Superga dinner held at the Chateau Marmont on Friday (January 23) in Los Angeles, California.

When it comes to the young starlet’s style, she often serves up looks ranging from princess gowns of the Elie Saab variety to girlie fun pieces with an edge by Carven.

On this occasion she wore directional basics from Rodarte’s Fall 2014 collection.

The look, which consisted of a grey long-sleeve turtleneck and mauve trousers with a paperbag waist, is perhaps one of my favourite looks from Elle for its laidback ease and simplicity.
