2018 Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of drama at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 20) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Celebrities joined, Janet Jackson, Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez.

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host glimmered in The Blonds. It had sensuality and shimmer, but it would have benefited from editing. Had the sequined fabric been on the bustier and the satin as the draped layer, it might have been more successful.

Hailey Baldwin: The model took the plunge in Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2018. The draping is splendid but the colour doesn’t do anything. The black version from the lookbook would have been preferable or a rich jewel tone. Not even the Jennifer Fisher jewels could enliven it.

Cyn: Cannes showcased a few similar looks to this Saint Laurent Fall 2018 dress, but with much stronger shoulders. The arm likely won’t prove as irksome as the heavy ruching on the skirt and the placement of the tie.

2017 amfAR & The Naked Heart Foundation Fabulous Fund Fair

Natalia Vodianova’s annual Fabulous Fund Fair for The Naked Heart Foundation traveled to New York City for the first time in partnership with amfAR on Saturday (October 28). Guests did not shirk their costume duties, either, for the Halloween-themed bash that saw a range of extravagant outfits.

Natalia Vodianova: There was no danger of missing the Naked Heart founder in the crowd, as she was the life-size incarnation of a Jeff Koons sculpture in her Andrey Bartenev balloon-esque design, further amped up by green Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2018 boots.

Naomi Campbell: There was almost more dress in the supermodel’s headdress than in her actual metallic-laced mini from The Blonds Fall 2017 collection.

Izabel Goulart: The model may have been channeling a Frida Kahlo-like spirit, but her Christian Dior Spring 2018 sheer embellished confection was very much within her go-to sexy style. Chopard jewels completed the look that was on the Red Carpet Wish List for Diane Kruger.

Justine Skye In The Blonds – 2017 BET Awards

Justine Skye made an arresting appearance at the 2017 BET Awards on Sunday (June 25) in LA.

The singer stood out in a dress from The Blonds Spring 2017 collection which I love for the contrasting gunmetal grey draped skirt against the softer luxurious silk bodice.

The futuristic feel of this dress is crying out for something more extreme like the icy blonde curls we saw on the runway, but Justine opted to braid her signature purple locks, allowing the Erickson Beamon gold and diamond earrings to add another dynamic twist.

Chloe Gosselin ‘Narcissus’ sandals provided the finishing touch.

Managing to be both glamorous and daring, this look was a winner for me. What do you make of it?

The Blonds Creates Miley Cyrus’ ‘The Bangerz World Tour’ Wardrobe

Miley Cyrus' The Blonds 'Bangerz' TourAfter an extended delay due to illness, Miley Cyrus is back with a vengeance. She kicked off the European leg of her ‘Bangerz’ tour at London’s O2 arena on Tuesday (May 6) with typical boundaries-pushing boldness—and plenty of skin-baring bodysuits—debuting four new custom looks created by New York-based design team, The Blonds.

Look 1: Starting off with a bang, the ‘Miley Mouth’ silver bodysuit, emboldened with a giant pair of shiny red lips, delivered no shortage of showiness—despite the minimum amount of fabric. Echoing her tongue-wagging tendencies, this leotard said it all.

Look 2: Putting a dollar value on her twerking skills, the songstress suited up in the ‘Billion Dollar Miley’ design, embellished with charms and oversized chains. Despite all that money, does this look still come across as cheap or is it rebel-chic?

Miley Cryus In The Blonds – Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2014

Miley Cryus In The Blonds - Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2014

You won’t be surprised that the most talked about person of 2013, Miley Cryus, was front and center for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2014 with Ryan Seacrest held in Times Square on Tuesday (December 31) in New York City where she delivered an earnest performance of ‘Wrecking Ball’ in the shadow of the mighty Times Square ball.

Wearing a full look from The Blonds, Miley worked another crop top. This time, the sparkling gold number matched her skin-tight pants which she styled with a long white fur coat from New York based designers and Versace ankle-strap, white, studded pumps.

I think even Puff Daddy would be jealous of the fur coat.

Another miss, or a rare hit for Miley?
