Platino Awards 2017

The Platino Awards 2017 were held on Saturday (July 22) in Madrid, Spain with a number of stars putting forth their glamorous side for Ibero-America’s annual film awards.

Mar Saura: Adding a gilded touch to her glamorous approach, Mar was striking in a Georges Hobeika fit-and-flare gown with golden embellishment. I love how her simple, complementary styling prevented any possibility of an overcooked look, keeping the dress on the right side of sophistication.

Juana Acosta: With a look that prioritized sharp elegance, Juana wore a Michael Kors Collection black gown for an asymmetrical look that left me with mixed feelings on the singular sling sleeve.

Sonia Balaco: Between the feathered plumage and the thigh-bearing, bow-bearing cutouts, there was a lot to take in with this Diogo Miranda Fall 2017 frock, so I’m glad she kept the accessories on the more minimal side with Monseo jewels, a Louis Vuitton clutch, and Christian Louboutin sandals. I will always struggle to find the flattering side of a gaping cutout placed at the high hip, though.

Comic-Con 2017 Weekend Roundup

A constellation of more stars were at Comic-Con 2017 in San Diego, California throughout this past weekend.

Naomi Watts: Attending the ‘Twin Peaks: A Damn Good Panel,’ Naomi played to a vintage spirit in this Roksanda Resort 2018 colour-block design. Perhaps it was the combination of hues that had somewhat of an aging effect on her.

Krysten Ritter: Taking a graphic, black-and-white approach, Krysten was at ‘Marvel’s The Defenders’ press line in a Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2017 dress. I love the striking attitude of the look in partnership with her ruby-red lip and Kurt Geiger booties for a touch of rebel edge.

Kaley Cuoco: This exploded Alice + Olivia Resort 2018 pinstripe shirt dress translated more like an afterthought with the slouchy, undone front and the head-scratching, chunky shoes when Kaley stopped by ‘The Big Bang Theory’ panel.

21.07.17 Menswear, Premiere

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The men finished out the week on a strong note with a range of events from San Diego to New York City.

Dave Franco: While at Comic-Con 2017 in San Diego on Thursday (July 20), Dave channeled a darker side of Hawaiian style with the more sinister-inspired, palm print of this shirt from The Kooples. I love his clean styling approach, neatly tucking the shirt into his cropped trousers.

Jack Lowden: Jack put his best business-sleek foot forward at the ‘Dunkirk’ New York City premiere on Tuesday (July 18), donning a Canali suit in suave shades of gray that was polished to perfection.

Harry Styles: There would be no buttoned-up mood for Harry at The Elvis Duran Z100 Morning Show on Wednesday (July 19) in New York City, as he had some flight-of-fancy fun with his custom Stella McCartney silk crepe-de-chine swallow shirt. Skinny denim and toe-cap boots completed the urban-western mood.

Alesha Dixon In Stella McCartney – ‘Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop A Bad Boy Story’ London Screening

Alesha Dixon was at the ‘Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story’ VIP screening in London back in May, but her outfit has left me green with envy ever since.

One of the metrics of successful style is all about balance, and she achieves that supremely well here with her body-con tank matched to the baggier form of the Stella McCartney Spring 2017 ‘Benni’ wide trousers featuring the on-trend paper-bag waist.

These pants are not for the faint of heart to wear, as the proportions are not easy to pull off. But, Alesha makes it all seem so effortless through her monochromatic styling.

We might normally fault the visible bra, but here the black peek-a-boo effect just adds another layer of intriguing edge—especially when her cropped leather moto jacket comes into play.

Lake Bell wore the navy version of the trousers, as well, but I appreciated Alesha’s first run of them so much more. Would you agree?
