16.05.18 Premiere

Celina Jade @ 2018 Cannes Film Festival

Celina Jade has been making the rounds at the Cannes Film Festival, with three red carpets to her name thus far.

‘Everybody Knows (Todos Lo Saben)’ Premiere: On the opening day of Cannes on Tuesday (May 8), Celina wore a designer I’m always intrigued to see on the red carpet with this Stephane Rolland Haute Couture gown. Despite the long train, I’ll have to admit that this particular moment didn’t have the sculptural extravagance and wow factor I had my hopes set on. The platform shoes didn’t really help matters.

Hailee Steinfeld In Stéphane Rolland Haute Couture – Nickelodeon’s 2018 Kids’ Choice Awards

Hailee Steinfeld was also at Nickelodeon’s 2018 Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday (March 24) in Inglewood, California.

Whenever we see a Stéphane Rolland Haute Couture look on the red carpet, we can expect to be spoiled with sweeping drama and sculptural detail.

However, the Spring 2018 collection—and Hailee’s ensemble, in particular—presented a slightly tempered spectacle with a more casual mood for the couturier.

I loved seeing this easy fluidity of form.

Of course, this white top, that flowed into a train, and sparkling drawstring silver pants adorned with a 3-D floral embellishment still packed a punch, but any more elaborately formalized and the look would have seemed out of place for the Nickelodeon occasion.

Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of memorable looks at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California.

Karolina Kurkova: Look closely at the Czech model’s Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 suit as the fabric has a marvelous texture that’s flecked with sparkles on the collar. It might not have been the loudest look, but it was unique and nice to see another pants option.

Darby Stanchfield: The ‘Scandal’ actress celebrated floral and fauna with her Teresa Helbig gown. Unfortunately, there were too many opposing elements between the print, sequins, sharp neckline and the sparkling bag. I can see some saying it’s a lesser version of Gucci.

Petra Nemcova: The philanthropist and model struck a pose in a sunny Celia Kritharioti gown. It was a well-executed look with her waves echoing the ruffled shoulder detail. The red lipstick and high slit added allure to the cheerful fabric.

Leona Lewis In Stéphane Rolland Couture – ‘Black Panther’ London Premiere

Leona Lewis made a stunning entrance at the London premiere of ‘Black Panther’ on Thursday (February 8), where Florence Kasumba and Letitia Wright were also in attendance.

For those seeking a statement piece at this premiere, it was found in this Stephane Rolland Fall 2017 Couture masterwork.

There would be no lack of drama in this piece of wearable art that commanded the carpet—not only because of the bold-shouldered cape, but also because of the dimensional sculpture of golden foliage that sprung from the skirt.

Her streamlined styling, punctuated by her teased ponytail, couldn’t have served the look any better than they did.

I was head over heels, simply by virtue of the powerful presence and artistry of the look. Were you?

Rita Ora In Stéphane Rolland Couture – ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ Paris Premiere

Rita Ora made her first ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ red carpet appearance for the Paris premiere this evening (February 6) in France.

When I saw her in this Stéphane Rolland Spring 2018 Couture draped white suit, my thoughts were you would fall into three camps.

1. This is the most effortless she has looked on the red carpet.

2. You expected more as Rita often goes bolder for big events.

3. You wish she had hemmed those trousers.

I personally love the elegance of it all. This is a spotlight sharing look. Oozing with plenty of style and panache. Even though the trousers are making me itch.

de Grisogono jewels completed her look.

Update: From the additional pictures I’ve added below, it appears that Rita wasn’t standing straight in the first photo, as the trousers were in fact perfectly tailored.
