Thandie Newton In Schiaparelli Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Thandie Newton attended the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday night (February 26).

The star wore a sequined silver Schiaparelli Haute Couture Fall 2016 gown with an Atelier Swarovski fine jewelry choker.

Fashion should be fun, and oh my goodness is this look ever fun. It’s bold, it’s flashy and it brings a smile to my face. While extending the lining from the runway for real world wear was not only necessary, it actually makes the dress even more eye-catching, and of course those shoulder plates are absolutely stunning works of art, from the structure to the design.

Wearing a choker with this look was a stroke of styling inspiration as is wearing her hair long and sleek. I do honestly feel like the blue eyeshadow is overkill with everything else going on, but when you’re having this much fun with your gown, I can’t fault anyone for having some fun in the beauty department, too.

Are you swooning as hard for this look as I am?

Celine Dion In Schiaparelli Couture – The Celine Dion Collection Launch

When I saw this Schiaparelli Spring 2017 Couture ‘pierced heart’ jacket look paired with over the knee red boots; Rita Ora and Kylie Minogue sprang to mine.

So imagine my shock – and delight – to see Celine Dion wearing this look to launch her Celine Dion Collection with the Bugatti Group in Las Vegas on Tuesday (February 21).

The Canadian singer had something of a style resurgence in the last year – going from chic to chic with a lot more bite.

Even though she has been stepping out of her comfort-zone, she does so with plenty of charm which doesn’t reek of trying to recapture youth.

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Schiaparelli Couture – 2017 Berlinale International Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Maggie Gyllenhaal attended the 2017 Berlinale International Film Festival Closing Ceremony on Saturday (February 18) in Berlin.

Consistency of style was her strong suit throughout the festival, as she maintained a loosely romantic, boho flair in many of her looks.

The mood continued for this diaphanously flowing Schiaparelli Spring 2017 Couture gown with its decorative Asian floral motif.

Her wavy locks only echoed the fluidity of form here, with a red lip providing a finishing pop of boldness in absence of the runway’s pendant necklaces.

Melissa George In Schiaparelli Couture – 40th Best Ceremony

Melissa George was easily spotted at the 40th Best Award Ceremony in Paris on Friday (January 27).

However, with her sculptural Schiaparelli Fall 2016 Couture frock featuring hot pink shoulder wings and a commanding belt, she could have been attending a space-age ball.

Upon seeing her outfit, I was immediately hit with déjà vu. That futuristic flapper fringe is not something you soon forget, after all.

You may recall that Yara Shahidi recently wore a very similar bristle dress from the same Schiaparelli collection.

Like it or loathe it, the shoes were a true question mark. While I’m sure they were selected so as to keep the dress front and center, they ended up pulling the look down with their taupe colour and traditional style that simply didn’t belong.

Thandie Newton In Schiaparelli Couture – 2017 SAG Awards

Thandie Newton wowed on the red carpet of the 2017 SAG Awards in LA on Sunday (January 29).

The actress wore a whimsical, jewel-encrusted Schiaparelli Fall 2016 gown 

This is what is called a ‘lot of look’, yet I really appreciate it on Thandie! The whimsy of the print is completely surprising on such a formal gown, and it brought a smile to my face, which I love. I don’t necessarily understand what the ultra modern shoulder piece has to do with romantic, almost vintage feel of the dress, but yet again, I am buying it completely on Thandie.

Steering away from the heavy footwear that we saw on the runway, and wearing understated, retro-inspired hair and makeup adds to this heavily editorial look, and I just continue to eat it up.

I feel like this one will be polarizing though: Love it, or leave it?

Schiaparelli Spring 2017 Couture Front Row

There was no shortage of starlets wearing their Schiaparelli best and seated front row at the brands Haute Couture Spring 2017 show during Paris Fashion Week on Monday (January 23).

Thandie Newton: With a large dose of va-va-voom, the actress wore her heart on her dress in an asymmetrical black number with a sultry slit up the leg. The sculptural red jacket that adorned her shoulders added even more sass to the ensemble.

Olga Kurylenko: Her appearance at the Schiaparelli show saw the actress wearing a completely different jumpsuit look from the one debuted at the Christian Dior show. Here, the sportier element disappeared to be replaced by a fluid silhouette and a power print. Like Thandie, she too wore a jacket over her shoulders for an additional edge.
