Greta Gerwig In Rodarte – ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Greta Gerwig attended the premiere of ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (May 21).

I didn’t love this Rodarte Spring 2017 gown on the runway, but I didn’t dislike as much as I might have imagined on the red carpet.

Perhaps I was just thankful to see the skirt was lined from its original incarnation.

Aside from that, the lace and dotted tulle layers and the flurry of ruffles and frou was a bit overdone, albeit whimsically so.

The Monique Péan jewelry was a proper accessory; the same cannot be said for her platform black shoes that were evidently a distracting necessity given the length of the dress.

Nicole Kidman In Rodarte – ‘How To Talk To Girls At Parties’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Having skipped the photocall, Nicole Kidman made her first appearance on the red carpet for the ‘How To Talk To Girls At Parties’ premiere during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival this afternoon (May 21).

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for; and if you are anything like you are bitterly disappointed by this Rodarte Fall 2017 offering.

Even with all the embellishment this whole look reads grannyish to me.

My exact reaction was, “Oh dear god no”, especially after what’s been an amazing 2017 for Nicole on the red carpet.

The proportions are all wrong, therefore this blouse looks like a crop top.

Thankfully Nicole has several more projects to promote during this festival, and therefore time to turn this around.

Netflix FYSEE Kick-Off Event

Netflix’s FYSEE Kick-Off event took place on Monday (May 7) in Beverly Hills, California, with plenty of young talent hitting the red carpet.

Brit Marling: Favouring modern minimalism Brit’s Louis Vuitton vibrant red dress was of course styled with LV ankle boots; as it would appear these dresses were not made for those who favour sandals.

Gillian Jacobs: The actress’ love for colourful prints took a back seat when she opted for this romantic Sandro black lace embellished dress. It’s a change of pace which paid off nicely, mostly due to the styling which included a Jennifer Behr headband. I’m glad she didn’t try to take this too far down a goth route.

Natasha Lyonne: The ‘OITNB’ actress’ Rodarte dress certainly doesn’t shy away from print, yet I still feel a bit underwhelmed.

Sarah Paulson In Rodarte – 2017 Time 100 Gala

Sarah Paulson was one of the many ladies who turned heads at the 2017 Time 100 Gala on Tuesday (April 25) in New York City.

She took a darkly romantic turn in this stunning Rodarte Spring 2017 gown with an extra layer for good measure, although some might be missing the lace details we saw so vividly on the runway.

I love how the polka-dots contrast with the beaded embroidery for a directional finish and the subtle Monique Pean jewels which complimented her look.

Unlike other celebs, there is just no comparison in terms of style and consistency as Sarah is very much in a league of her own.

Zoey Deutch In Rodarte – Marie Claire’s Fresh Faces Party

Zoey Deutch attended Marie Claire’s Fresh Faces event on Friday (April 21) in West Hollywood.

Despite the hyper-embellished nature of this Rodarte Fall 2016 lace blouse and skirt, what with its dimensional floral paillettes and fanciful embroidery, it maintained a sense of light, delicate whimsy.

My admiration is centered more on the look from the waist up, given the granny-panties shape of the skirt from afar.

But she styled it all beautifully, with effortless waves and a rose-pink lip along with sheer lace pumps that played into the ensemble perfectly.

Coach & Rodarte Spring 2017 Collaboration Dinner Party


Last night, Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy and Coach’s Stuart Vevers celebrated the forthcoming Coach & Rodarte collection, launching worldwide on April 12th.

Consisting of ready-to-wear and leather goods that merge the established tradition of Coach with the younger, avant-garde spirit of Rodarte, the capsule collection delivers the height of both styles and will be available from April 12th at Coach.com and April 14th at Coach stores and specialty retailers worldwide.

The three designers celebrated their collaboration at a private dinner at Hollywood’s iconic Musso & Frank Grill, where there were no shortage of starlets in attendance with each showing off the collection’s cool-girl looks.

Bella Heathcote: The idea of an embellished, leather dress took on new meaning with this softer, feminine shape that dazzled in a striking array of sequined floral. The sophistication of tough-chic leather continued with her burgundy heels and chain-link mini clutch. It was the blue eye shadow that was more of an acquired taste.

Yara Shahidi: Yara completely sold this look to me, tempering the girly nature of the embellished, bow-accented dress with the sporty, varsity jacket emblazoned with flowers. I would have never paired such a sizable handbag or the bronze platform sandals, but she makes it all work together.

Chloe Moretz: Never ceasing to impress, Chloe made a striking statement with her top-to-toe rock-star swagger. The leather moto jacket featured a similar floral sequin motif as Yara’s bag and Bella’s dress. However, the simplicity of the black jumpsuit underneath really allowed the jacket to shine, with her punk-pretty makeup elevating the strong attitude of the ensemble even more.
