V&A Summer Party

A whole host of stars attended the V&A summer party on Wednesday (June 21) in London,

Princess Beatrice of York: Deciding to go darker than most in attendance, Princess Beatrice opted for a Self-Portrait ruffled guipure lace midi dress. The tiered sheer dress may have been the perfect antidote to the heat but her Jimmy Choo pumps really weighed down the look.

Sai Bennett: This Temperley London Fall 2017 dress was utterly appropriate for the event, I especially love the front slit and gorgeous floral print which feels particularly summery. Some simple gold accessories and brown wedges tied this look together perfectly.

Donna Air: This lightweight Three Floor tiered lace dress looked incredibly feminine and pretty. The high-neck ruffles worked well with Donna’s swept back hair and round frame sunglasses. The silhouette is also incredibly flattering, with just the right amount of breathable cut-outs.

Demi Lovato In Self-Portrait – Cannes Lions Festival 2017

Demi Lovato kept is casual and carefree on Monday (June 19) as she attended the Cannes Lions Festival in Cannes, France.

The singer opted for a chic Self-Portrait Pre-Fall 2017 monochrome jumpsuit with a beautiful asymmetric neckline.

I am besotted with the top half of this look. The large ruffle-frills, the off-the-shoulder design, and the short sleeves feel endlessly summery and feminine.

Add to that the breath-taking details of the contrasting black edges and large buttons; it’s both seasonally appropriate and formal.

Do you prefer the look book version with the skirt, as opposed to Demi’s jumpsuit version?

‘The Beguiled’ LA Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

More stars took to the red carpet for ‘The Beguiled’ LA premiere on Monday (June 12), joining Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning, and Kirsten Dunst.

Emma Howard: Self-Portrait’s signature lace was put to work in this one-shoulder, cutout dress from the Fall 2017 collection. My biggest issue here was with her eggplant-hued platform sandals, as they completely compromised any allure of the frock.

Sofia Coppola: While this Valentino Pre-Fall 2017 dress was very much in keeping with Sofia’s no-nonsense, effortless-chic aesthetic—as well as her favouritism for the colour black—I love the delicate femininity afforded by the pink floral print with her makeup echoing that boho-romantic spirit.

Courtney Love: Silk-satin dresses can be tricky to wear, and unfortunately this Roksanda Zenku Spring 2017 open-back design fails to flatter, between the droopy sleeves and the dropped waistline. The heavy-handed makeup and equally intense shoes don’t help matters here at all.

Eleanor Tomlinson In Antonio Berardi & Self-Portrait – AOL Build LDN & BBC Studios

Eleanor Tomlinson had a busy day on Thursday (June 8) hopping across London to the BUILD Series LDN at AOL and then the BBC Studios.

AOL Build LDN: The ‘Poldark’ actress looked super chic in an Antonio Berardi Pre-Fall 2017 peplum top and Mother ‘Stunner’ cropped jeans. There was uniformity to the look which was exaggerated by the shooting black lines on the shirt. I particularly loved the placement of the black line under the bust and the ruffled flare of the peplum top. These details, which were almost corset-like, made Eleanor’s waist look impossibly tiny. The addition of sandals and sunglasses elevated this look even further.

BBC Studios: Eleanor continued her peplum top and jean combo with a more relaxed appearance at the BBC Studios. The informal Self-Portrait Pre-Fall 2017 top was perfectly casual with interesting cut-outs for those hot summers nights. Whilst I think the blue works beautifully against Eleanor’s alabaster skin, I prefer the precision and sharpness of her previous look.

Kendall Jenner In Self-Portrait – Out In New York City

While Kendall Jenner was spotted shopping at Jeffrey in Manhattan on Thursday (June 1), it was her street style that really took front-and-centre attention.

Donning a romper from the Self-Portrait Fall 2017 collection, she put the spirit of summer into the flirty piece by pairing it with a Kendall + Kylie colour-striped bodysuit and white sneakers.

The look might not be to everyone’s taste, but I do appreciate the unique personality she brought to it while incorporating her and her sister’s range.

She also gets points for making a Louis Vuitton bum bag look like every cool-girl’s best accessory.

Lily Collins In Diane von Furstenberg, By Johnny & Self-Portrait – ‘Okja’ Promo Tour

After wrapping up the ‘Okja’ premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, Lily Collins continued the promo tour in London with two stops in the city. First, she was at the Lorraine Studios on Thursday (May 25) followed by a visit to the BBC Radio Studios on Friday (May 26).

Lorraine Studios: While this look had an air of the prim and proper, it maintained its chic edge with the eclectic pairing of the Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2017 checquered sweater with a By Johnny Spring 2017 colour-block mini skirt. I would have never combined the primary colours of the sweater with the pastel skirt, but somehow it worked. What didn’t work was the heaviness of the Charlotte Olympia ‘Dolly’ platform pumps.

BBC Radio Studios: With a more distinct nod to girly femininity, Lily wore a flowy, pussy-bow blouse with Self-Portrait Fall 2017 ruffle-accented shorts and a pair of edgy, embellished Christian Louboutin ‘Kaleikita’ sandals. The shorts seemed to have a strange, loose fit, but that could have been a result of where she carried her purse at the side.
