Lupita Nyong’o In Kevin Mayes & Danai Gurira In The Row – ‘Black Panther’ Johannesburg Premiere

As the ‘Black Panther’ promo tour marched along, Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira were both in attendance at the Johannesburg premiere on Friday (February 16)—both in looks that vibrantly reflected the heritage of their South Africa setting.

Lupita Nyong’o: The fiery hue of this Kevin Mayes design, not to mention the gold embroidered cutouts, were so striking, as Lupita returned to the bold colours we know and love. More allure came by virtue of the hip-high dual front slits—more visible in movement—an intriguing counterpoint to the sweeping nature of the skirt.

Danai Gurira: The statement piece of this loose and languid navy gown was the bold, textural neck piece as well as her cuffs that added such a relevant flourish to the simple halter design.

2018 BAFTA Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Black gowns dominated the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England, but the red carpet was by no means boring with celebrities showing their support for the Time’s Up movement in a wide array of striking looks.

Letitia Wright: Showing a darker side of Gucci, the ‘Black Panther’ actress, who was one of the presenters on the night, looks charming in a belted dress. The bug-like embroidery perks up the black velvet base. Some have remarked how the brands looks sometimes suffer from too many details, but this one has the balance right.

Sally Hawkins: The Best Actress in a Leading Role nominee for ‘The Shape of Water’, shone in a Ralph & Russo gown. This is a more sensual look for her with the slashes in the bodice revealing a coquettish hint of skin. I wish she played into the theme more with romantic wavy hair.

Anya Taylor-Joy: Last year’s Rising Star Award nominee embraced the sexy glamour of Dolce & Gabbana in a black lace dress and golden crown. I can already hear the chants of people wishing the skirt was lined, and I must agree.

Greta Gerwig In The Row – 33rd Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival

After a brush with boldness, Greta Gerwig returned to a more minimalist sensibility at the 33rd Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Tuesday (February 6) in California.

The clean lines of The Row were manifested in this charcoal-gray suit styled with the jacket draped atop her shoulders for a relaxed-chic appeal.

Her baby-blue blouse offered a lovely, feminine draped effect as a counterbalance to the menswear tailoring—with a magenta-pink lip to complete the ensemble.

Aquazzura flats ensured the casual ease of the look.

Jessica Biel In The Row – The 2018 MAKERS Conference

Jessica Biel joined Karlie Kloss for The 2018 MAKERS Conference on Tuesday (February 6) in Los Angeles, California.

Following her exciting weekend at the Super Bowl, the actress opted for the understated elegance and contemporary appeal of The Row.

I like how the t-shirt softens the structured mood of the menswear-inspired tailoring for a modern day look, while still embodying The Row’s clean-lined finesse.

Usually white pumps are like kryptonite to me, but on this occasion they work harmoniously with the ensemble, along with her Jennifer Meyer ‘S’ initial necklace.

Elle Fanning In The Row – ‘The Alienist’ Sundance Film Festival Screening

Joining her sister, Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning was also at ‘The Alienist’ Sundance Film Festival screening on Friday (January 19) in Park City, Utah.

I’m sure many won’t be surprised to learn she was wearing The Row, given the long, roomy silhouette of the look that’s so characteristic of the label.

On the one hand, I was wishing for slightly more shape and definition to the long macramé fringed dress and equally long overcoat.

On the other, I was more glad for the enchanting, powder-blue hue of that coat that took top billing and radiated beautifully against her complexion.

The cowboy boots may also raise an eyebrow, but they were undoubtedly chosen on behalf of the Park City location.

Dakota Fanning In 3.1 Phillip Lim & The Row – TCA Turner Winter Press Tour 2018 Presentation & ‘The Alienist’ LA Premiere

Dakota Fanning returned to the red carpet, first attending the TCA Turner Winter Press Tour 2018 presentation on Thursday (January 11) then stepping out later that evening for ‘ The Alienist’ LA premiere.

TCA Turner Winter Press Tour 2018 Presentation: The actress showed an updated take on monochromatic dressing with her 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2018 ensemble. I can see some wishing she wore the black version of the top for a more formal finish, but the lighter option plays up the faint pinstripe in the trousers. Christian Louboutin ‘Marchavekel’ red velvet platforms added a hint of colour.

Allison Williams In The Row – British Independent Film Awards 2017

Allison Williams also joined the list at the British Independent Film Awards 2017 on Sunday (December 10) on Old Billingsgate in London.

While some may be left uninspired by her minimalist statement from Spring 2018 collection of The Row, there was something striking in its languid, slip-dress allure that made no apologies for its extreme simplicity.

I like how her blonde waves echoed the effortless nonchalance of the look.

Did you like the pared-back nature of her styling, or were you left wishing for something more?
