Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The men have been showcasing their style credentials as much as the ladies this week.

Khalid: Taking a casual preppy approach, the New Artist Billboard Award winner wore Fendi to the ceremony on Sunday (May 20). The burnt orange colour typically has an autumnal feel but it suits his colouring and is kept fresh with the white trainers and hoodie.

Donald Glover: Further demonstrating his mastery of vintage-inspired looks, he was outfitted in Bottega Veneta Spring 2018 with Christian Louboutin ‘Dandelion’ loafers for the ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ London photocall on Friday (May 18), joining Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Emilia Clarke. The shoes cleverly echo the warm tone in the top.

Darren Criss: The former ‘Glee’ actor was suited and booted in Dior Homme at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 20). The footwear adds some edge, but it’s all about the eye-popping effect of that blue collar.

2018 Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of drama at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 20) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Celebrities joined, Janet Jackson, Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez.

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host glimmered in The Blonds. It had sensuality and shimmer, but it would have benefited from editing. Had the sequined fabric been on the bustier and the satin as the draped layer, it might have been more successful.

Hailey Baldwin: The model took the plunge in Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2018. The draping is splendid but the colour doesn’t do anything. The black version from the lookbook would have been preferable or a rich jewel tone. Not even the Jennifer Fisher jewels could enliven it.

Cyn: Cannes showcased a few similar looks to this Saint Laurent Fall 2018 dress, but with much stronger shoulders. The arm likely won’t prove as irksome as the heavy ruching on the skirt and the placement of the tie.

Blackkklansman’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of high octane fashion at the premiere of ‘Blackkklansman’ at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival on Monday evening (May 14). Celebrities joined Damaris LewisLaura Harrier and Naomi Campbell.

Natasha Poly: The pastel purple hue brought an ethereal quality to the unabashed sexiness of her Atelier Versace Spring 2018 dress. It had every sensual element and came to life when in motion. I’m of two minds about removing the front skirt panel as it often seems like it’s in the way.

Winnie Harlow: The vivid green hue of her Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Haute Couture outfit has such a bewitching quality and looks wonderful with her complexion. Alas, the material is not holding up very well for a couture look. It’s rather wilted.

Kering x Cannes Dinner Red Carpet Roundup

Black appeared to be the favourite colour of the evening at the Kering x Cannes dinner during the 2018 Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (May 13). Celebrities joined Cate BlanchettChloë Sevigny and Kristen Stewart.

Salma Hayek Pinault: She didn’t get the black memo. Instead, she had a captivating moment in custom Gucci. It has a whimsical feel with the lace accents and accessories, but it still has an alluring finish. It would have been just as magical without the necklace.

Li Yuchun: Another one who plays by her own rule book, the singer demonstrated her sartorial skills in Gucci. The cognac trousers were a departure from her typical tailored black, but they offered a fresh take against the prim jacket and collared shirt.

‘Sink Or Swim (Le Grand Bain)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

There were so many more Cannes lovelies who were out in force for the ‘Sink Or Swim (Le Grand Bain)’ Cannes Film Festival premiere on Sunday (May 13).

Izabel Goulart: Some of you may be thinking what happened to the front of this signature embellished Zuhair Murad Spring 2018 Haute Couture bodysuit-gown fusion. But, the model has legs for days and she showed them off in top form with this enchanting moment that measured its sexiness by a moment of fairytale allure in the long embellished train. Naturally, Chopard jewels were a perfect finish.

Anja Rubik: As vibrant as this Saint Laurent Fall 2018 floral mini was, it seemed better suited to a daytime photocall than a red carpet premiere.

Isabelle Huppert In Saint Laurent – ‘Sink Or Swim (Le Grand Bain)’ Cannes Film Festival

Isabelle Huppert made her 2018 Cannes Film Festival debut at the ‘Sink Or Swim (Le Grand Bain)’ premiere on Sunday (May 13).

As we’ve pointed out, much of the magic of the French actress’s style is how graciously she wears looks on the red carpet.

And, that was very much proven true with this glam-rocker Saint Laurent ensemble, as she made it look like as effortless of an endeavor as possible despite the cliché sequins and fringe.

It’s perhaps not what I would have first picked for her for Cannes.

But, on her, it did have a dark, mystic allure that was undeniable on the ageless star while confirming that she will always follow her own stylish whims. I love the artistry of her earrings, too.
