90th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

The 90th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon on Monday (February 5) in Beverly Hills, California saw more stars in attendance along with Saoirse Ronan, Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie.

Laurie Metcalf: While many attendees opted for shorter frocks, Laurie went for a long Temperley London gown that featured a striking metallic pattern. Yet, it was geared more to an evening red carpet. Pierre Hardy ‘Blondie’ sandals completed her look.

Allison Janney: I like the rich, inky colour of this Georges Chakra Couture Fall 2017 dress. It’s the illusion neckline and side cutouts that offer a less modern element.

Sally Hawkins: I think the extra-roomy proportions of this dotted Rosie Assoulin Spring 2018 ensemble created more of a loungewear vibe than was likely intended.

2018 SAG Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Many of the fellows at the 2018 SAG Awards weren’t content to just wear the standard black tux, making for quite the scene-stealing list of looks on Sunday (January 21) in LA.

Noah Schnapp: The young ‘Stranger Things’ star continued to win my affection with a lesson in all that is dapper in his custom-made velvet tuxedo by Stella McCartney paired with Jésù-SégunLondon slipper-style shoes, a Brackish bowtie, and Mrs Bow Tie pocket square. What a charmer.

Sterling K. Brown:
The ‘This Is Us’ star won the best actor award, and his look was equally stellar in this Giorgio Armani tuxedo styled with a Chopard timepiece and cufflinks. This was a lesson in the appeal of classic style with a modern twist thanks to the shades and the slim-line, slightly cropped proportions.

Dacre Montgomery:
I liked this Giorgio Armani ensemble for its unorthodox twist on the traditional tux in the chocolate-brown hue and exaggerated shawl label. Wearing his dress shirt unbuttoned at the top added a rebellious flavour that actually echoed his ‘Stranger Things’ character quite well. Montblanc cufflinks completed the look.

Meghan Markle In Stella McCartney – Cardiff Castle Visit

Meghan Markle paid a visit to Cardiff Castle in Wales on Thursday (January 18) with Prince Harry and continued to prove how she has grace in spades.

The elegant layers epitomize her own brand of refined elegance.

She kept warm in a Stella McCartney Spring 2018 coat, Hiut Denim ‘Dina’ jeans and Tabitha Simmons ‘Kiki’ boots.

Hidden under the elegant layers was a Theory off-the shoulder jacket, which did not mar the lines of the belted topper.

A DeMellier London ‘Mini Venice’ bag brightened the subdued colour palette.

Thanks to AnnaP, we’ve discovered that there’s a deeper meaning to Meghan’s pieces.

Hiut jeans are a Welsh company that are trying to restart a business and re-employ the 400 workers who were laid off. And for every DeMellier bag that is sold, a contribution is made to fund a vaccine to save a child’s life in the developing world.

Our admiration just grew deeper.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Annabelle Wallis or Katy Perry?

I remember my immediate reaction to Annabelle Wallis in this Stella McCartney Spring 2018 dress was, “why did she belt it?”

Well, my question was answered when Katy Perry wore the same dress this week to the designers Autumn 2018 collection launch, and the answer is, “because otherwise you’ll look like you’re expecting quintuplets”.

If I was Annabelle and her stylist, I would be saying “I told you so” right about now.

Without question, Annabelle wins for me.

Stella McCartney’s Autumn 2018 Collection Launch

Stella McCartney’s Autumn 2018 collection launch on Tuesday (January 16) in Los Angeles, California was brimming with bold fashion.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: The model looked like a yummy mummy in her one-shouldered knit and vegan leather trousers. The autumnal shades and materials are luxurious, and the gold accessories only heightened the feel. That’s why it’s a shame about the semi-sheer top.

Kate Bosworth: I’m sure there will be many people who will want to rip this macramé strap off. It makes me feel a bit better that it’s part of a bag, but coupled with the short-sleeved blazer, there’s a touristy vibe I find difficult to shake off. I’m further let down by the rumpled trousers. Not her best.

Katy Perry: The singer went for extreme volume in an asymmetrical red dress. I’m afraid her colourful makeup and accessories only enhance the cartoonish feel of the look — and not in the best way. Now we know why Annabelle Wallis belted the gown at The 2017 Fashion Awards.

Penelope Cruz In Stella McCartney – ‘The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’ LA Premiere

Following the Golden Globes, Penelope Cruz attended the premiere of FX’s ‘The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’ alongside her co-starts Darren Criss, Edgar Ramirez, and Ricky Martin on Monday (January 8) in Hollywood, California.

The Spanish actress wore a custom Stella McCartney velvet gown styled with Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry.

My reaction to this first and foremost was, “where is the Versace?”

I don’t know about you but I was expecting Versace for Good Morning America, for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, press conferences and every premiere.

Would that have been too literal or too predictable?

Perhaps, yes. But with such an archive to select from and an Atelier team that can create magical pieces, I found myself underwhelmed by this Stella McCartney look.

Pretty yes, but not what it could/should’ve been.

2018 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Black was of course the shade of the night at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 7) with celebrities putting their own interpretations on the dress code.

Kelly Clarkson: The singer’s custom Christian Siriano gown will likely draw comparisons to Mary J. Blige’s Alberta Ferretti look because of the contrasting one sleeve. The dramatically full skirt on Kelly’s matched the joy of the shimmering gold fabric. The pockets were a delightful addition.

Allison Janney: The Best Supporting Actress winner’s Mario Dice dress was captivating with the sleek fluidity of the skirt contrasting the beautiful detailing of the bodice. This reinvigorated cut-outs.
