Pre-Grammys Weekend Roundup

This pre-Grammys weekend roundup left us with a motley collection of entrances in New York City that all appeared to be reading the same WDOTW memo.

Hailey Baldwin: Hailey joined another Hailee (Baldwin) at the Republic Records pre-Grammys event on Friday (January 26). However, they couldn’t have been dressed more unlike each other, as this pink Off-White Spring 2018 ensemble showed designer Virgil Abloh’s luxury streetwear vibe—done with a bubblegum ’80s twist. Jennifer Fisher jewels rounded out the directional look.

Priyanka Chopra:
With a rare misstep at the GRAMMY Salute to Industry Icons Honoring Jay-Z on Saturday (January 27), Priyanka lost me completely with this Ester Abner Spring 2018 outfit that suffered not only in fit but also in execution. All I was left with was an ill-conceived, messy bathrobe-boudoir vibe.

Julia Michaels: Also at the GRAMMY Salute event, Julia fared only marginally better in this Yanina Fall 2017 Couture frock. Exposed shoulder pads, blinding-white cuffs, and an unusual take on lining left a lot to be desired in the execution department.

2018 NAACP Image Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There were many more beauties—and bold looks—in the mix at the 2018 NAACP Image Awards on Monday (January 15) in Pasadena, California.

Logan Browning: The actress channeled her softer side in a Maria Lucia Hohan ballet-pink gown with lace accents. I like the feminine, romantic quality of the design, but also the modern edge she brought to it with metallic accents including the belt and spherical clutch.

Marsai Martin: High-low gowns are nothing new, but this Pantora Mini design was rendered in such a vibrant shade of emerald green that it made a statement with the fun and frills appropriate for the young ‘Black-ish’ starlet.

Madison Iseman In Thai Nguyen Atelier – ‘Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle’ LA Premiere

Madison Iseman struck a pose at the ‘Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle’ premiere in LA on Monday (December 11), joining Karen Gillan.

The young actress chose a Thai Nguyen Atelier Pre-Fall 2017 ensemble which played into the naturalistic elements of the movie with its deep muted gold colour.

Her minimalist styling made the plunging halter neckline and cummerbund-style belt come to the forefront.

Less successful was the extra-long sheer overlayer which read slightly messy when it pooled on the ground.

Kelly Marie Tran In Thai Nguyen Atelier – ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ LA Premiere

Kelly Marie Tran joined her co-stars Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie for the ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ premiere on Saturday (December 9) in Los Angeles.

As this movie is Kelly Marie’s first big break, a big fairytale gown was needed to mark the emotional occasion.

If you’re going to wear a blazing red gown, then you have to make sure it’s one that ticks off all the statement boxes and commands attention.

This Thai Nguyen Atelier custom gown does that and more.

What a stunning way to make your red carpet debut.

2017 American Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There were plenty more music lovers who joined Ciara, Selena Gomez and Nicole Kidman on the red carpet for the 2017 American Music Awards on Sunday (November 19) in LA.

Bebe Rexha: You’ll be forgiven if you thought Bebe was Kim Kardashian in this black August Getty Atelier Spring 2018 Swarovski crystal strapless dress. The resemblance is uncanny.

Heidi Klum: The ‘Project Runway’ host went back into the archives to unearth this gorgeous vintage Versace gown.

Jenna Dewan Tatum: When it comes to the archetypal music awards dresses, Jenna totally nailed it with her custom Julien Macdonald gold embellished look. John Hardy jewels added yet more shine.

Anika Noni Rose In Thai Nguyen Atelier – 2017 Emmy Awards

Anika Noni Rose graced the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 17) in LA wowing in resplendent tones of blush.

The singer and Emmy presenter donned a custom Thai Nguyen Atelier gown. The full skirt brought a soft girlishness to the slit-to-there deep neckline.

She echoed the subdued tones of the gown with her makeup and dangling earrings. The most color in her look came from her crop of auburn hair.

What do you think of the plunge?

2017 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party

In advance of the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday, Entertainment Weekly hosted its Pre-Emmy Party on Friday (September 15) in West Hollywood, California.

Sophia Bush: This red Stella McCartney body-skimming dress with car wash slits held potential, but I wish the styling had been more complementary. A tonal red sandal like the Edie Parker clutch would have provided a more streamlined effect but I would have stopped the red at the makeup—red eye shadow is always a tough look to pull off.

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host also went bold with the eye shadow, hers an intense shade of violet. However, her sultry Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2018 floral-embroidered dress commanded enough attention on its own. I love that she didn’t resort to black pumps, but I’m wishing for a sandal here.

Mandy Moore
: With a shiny new play on an LBD, the ‘This Is Us’ actress donned a Sally LaPointe Pre-Fall 2017 sequin dress styled with Sophia Webster shoes and a red Jimmy Choo clutch. The style-forward edge of the turtleneck sweater piece grew on me, although at first, I did want to remove it.
