Blake Lively In Marc Jacobs & Roksanda – ‘Good Morning America’

Blake Lively In Marc Jacobs & Roksanda - 'Good Morning America'

Blake Lively paid a visit to the ABC Studios for her guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ today (April 21) in New York City to promote her new movie, ‘The Age of Adaline’.

Arrival: I was bitterly disappointed by her first look from Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2015 collection. The look feels look feels really rigid and matronly on Blake. The out of season feeling is also very jarring. The only positive it that her Christian Louboutin ‘Tucsick’ pumps were perfectly matched.

Departure: My reaction to the second look was, “BOOM”, this is more like the Blake Lively I know and love. I think her colour-block Roksanda Lockwood dress and coat from the Resort 2015 collection is easily her best look this week which she styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Front Double’ Silver glitter and gold specchio detailed pumps. Chic, sophisticated and modern; it’s hard not to fall in love with this outfit. You guys didn’t like her premiere looks, so I am guessing you might be in agreement. I hope to see more exciting looks like this on her promo tour.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead In Roksanda – ‘Silicon Valley’ Season 2 Premiere

Mary Elizabeth Winstead In Roksandsa - 'Silicon Valley' Season 2 Premiere
Mary Elizabeth Winstead attended the Season 2 premiere of HBO’s ‘Silicon Valley’ at the El Capitan Theatre on Thursday (April 2) in Hollywood, California.

The actress was lovely in a Roksanda Pre-Fall 2015 black skirt that was punctuated by sharp, geometric blocks in zesty sunset hues.

Opting to simplify the ensemble, she wore the skirt with a black top and black lace Casadei heels.

While I love the streamlined sleekness that her look portrays, a part of me was still left craving the flash of the lookbook’s belt and colourful shoes.

Scrap that bright white clutch, add the belt, and now we’re talking.

Rosario Dawson In Roksanda – Netflix’s ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ LA Premiere

Rosario Dawson In Roksanda - Netflix's 'Marvel's Daredevil' LA Premiere

Rosario Dawson attended the premiere of Netflix’s ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live, on Thursday (April 2) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress, as always, fully embraced colour, selecting a dress from colour-block Queen Roksanda’s Spring 2015 collection.

Rosario opted not to wear the dress with the runway belt, which I felt lends a sleek finish to the look.

Rosario’s Tamara Mellon ‘Tiger’ sandals also received the colour-block treatment, as did her Edie Parker clutch, and while I love the enthusiasm for colour-blocking here, I am also wondering is there such a thing as too much colour-blocking?

I’m undecided, as part of me thinks I would’ve preferred the shoes to have been a solid colour, feeling that they are somewhat upstaging the dress.

Michelle Obama’s Tour Of Asia

Michelle Obama's Five-Day Tour Of Asia

United States First Lady Michelle Obama arrived in Japan last week for a three-day visit, as part of a drive to promote girls’ education around the world, before heading to Cambodia for two days. Wearing a range of designers, she dynamically showed her love of bold colours and prints—and her ability to wear them confidently and effortlessly.

Look 1: Michelle couldn’t have made a better first impression upon arrival at Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport on Wednesday (March 18), waving to onlookers in a citron-yellow Kenzo printed frock that had me at hello. The colour was glorious on her and so, too, was the box-pleated, voluminous skirt. Some might say the statement metallic belt was a bit too much, but I would say it added an artsy edge. I’m glad she chose the directional Japanese label—and that she wore it without a tinge of try-hard.

Look 2: On Thursday (March 19), FLOTUS attended the Japan-U.S. Joint Girls Education Event at the Iikura Guest House in Tokyo. She was radiant in an Altuzarra custom dress coat from the Spring 2015 collection with a burnt-orange, lotus-inspired stencil print; a motif likely selected to pay homage to her Japanese tour.

Cate Blanchett Loves…Roksanda

Cate Blanchett Loves Roksanda

Cate Blanchett and Roksanda Ilincic: Two power girls with an impeccable sense of style—and who have actually become much of a perfect star-designer match. In fact, Cate can’t seem to get enough of the London-based designer’s bold block colours, artistic-inspired aesthetic, and signature, contemporary lines.

For the actress, who is elegance personified, Roksanda is right in keeping with her classic grace while maintaining a directional, modern spirit.

We’ve seen Queen Cate wear the versatile label for several years now, kicking off her chic streak at the ‘Blue Jasmine’ Los Angeles press conference where she showed that simple is sometimes the best answer in a richly hued bordeaux dress from the Fall 2013 collection.

Colour was also key in her effortless, vibrant coral Roksanda Ilincic Fall 2013 gown at the ‘Blue Jasmine’ Sydney premiere—a look that was set afire with her deep magenta lip.

From minimalism to a more fashion-forward edge, the actress once again impressed in a Fall 2014 frock at the Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014, which was brilliant for its confident colour-blocking, flower decal and metal belt.

Giving the dresses a rest, she sported a more mannish ensemble earlier this month at The Ellen DeGeneres Show, suiting up in a Resort 2015 blue blazer and pants.

Going from strength to strength, Cate most recently delighted in a geometric lavender and coral-pink Pre-Fall 2015 dress for the ‘Cinderella’ Sydney premiere. The charming outing was the icing on the cake of her Roksanda run that shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.
