Karen Gillan In Ronald van der Kemp Couture – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

Karen Gillan attended Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in Hollywood, California.

She brought what I would call a joyously eccentric spirit to the proceedings in her Ronald van der Kemp Fall 2017 Couture dress.

Although this was a fall design, I was getting something of a spring fever from its bright, playful palette and patterned whimsy.

A Judith Leiber clutch and Irene Neuwirth jewels along with her distinct, mulberry lip rounded it out in such a girly-sophisticated manner.

I much preferred Karen’s fresh, youthful zeal, as opposed to the look’s original presentation.

What about you?

Lupita Nyong’o In Ronald van der Kemp Couture – 2018 Essence Black Women In Hollywood Oscars Luncheon

Lupita Nyong’o attended the Essence 11th Annual Black Women In Hollywood Awards Gala on Thursday (March 1) in Beverly Hills, California.

The ‘Black Panther’ actress wore a Ronald van der Kemp Fall 2017 Couture dress made up of so many intriguing textural elements.

Usually with this much going on things can feel overcooked. But the jacquard, snakeskin, stripes and sheer trim all work together in perfect harmony, thanks to the edgy design and the confidence of the wearer.

Andrea Riseborough In Ronald van der Kemp – ‘Waco’ New York Premiere & Ringing the Nasdaq Opening Bell

Andrea Riseborough showed her support for Ronald van der Kemp, wearing two outfits from the designer at recent events. First, she attended the ‘Waco’ New York premiere on Monday (January 22), where she joined Melissa Benoist. Then she and the ‘Waco’ cast rang the Nasdaq Opening Bell on Tuesday (January 23).

‘Waco’ New York Premiere: There is a whimsical theatricality to this look that immediately made me think of Sia. A skirt suit silhouette has been subverted with the train and tufts of pleated fabric to produce a short dress that was as enchanting as any long gown. The black frock and Jimmy Choo shoes showed solidarity with the Time’s Up pin affixed to her top.

‘Waco’ Cast Ring the Nasdaq Opening Bell: She embraced the charms of the designer again in another black ensemble. The separates are extremely polished, but the details balance the seriousness for a tongue-in-cheek finish. Balenciaga boots kept the look sophisticated.

2018 Critics’ Choice Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Following the 2018 Golden Globes black dress code, the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday (January 11) showcased a range of colours, styles and designers.

Reese Witherspoon: The actress’s most memorable looks often have bold colours, so I was surprised she opted for a black Prada dress. That being said, I thought the short length really worked for her, with the embellishment adding some vicariousness. The Roger Vivier shoes enhanced the playful mood.

Emma Roberts: Her choppy blonde fringe was certainly a talking point, but the elegant simplicity of her Giorgio Armani gown didn’t go unnoticed. The strapless column fit perfectly. She styled it in a very modern way with the gold-toned accessories and by leaving the neckline bare.

Emilia Clarke: Like Reese, the ‘Game of Thrones’ star opted for a shorter black dress. She wore a Dolce & Gabbana frock with Gianvito Rossi sandals. I would have loved to see the look completed with a red lip as it would have added some warmth while playing up the brand’s Italian film star aesthetic.

Emma Watson In Ronald van der Kemp – 2018 Golden Globe Awards

Noted women’s group leader Marai Larasi was Emma Watson’s guest at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 7).

Both were of course in black, with Emma decked out in a satin gown from Ronald van der Kemp with Creatures of Comfort shoes.

Voluminous ruffles keep the look contemporary while sheer inserts of lace lend sensuality and texture.

I was surprised to see one of Emma’s gowns end up as one of your least favourites of 2017, so how does this look fare?
