The Fashion Awards 2017 Red Carpet Roundup

The long list of stars continued in full force at The Fashion Awards 2017 on Monday (December 4) in London.

Kaia Geber: I loved seeing the young model have some fun with the flirty nature of ruffles in this Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 two-piece, cold-shoulder look. It was style-forward, chic, and sweet at the same time. Messika jewels completed her look.

Adwoa Aboah: There was no sequin left unturned in this Halpern Spring 2018 sequin number, but it was the platform footwear that compromised its fresh potential.

Jourdan Dunn: The sultry seduction of the Versace label was fully celebrated in this orange gown. But I most loved the model’s gorgeous beauty look.

mothers2mothers Winter Fundraiser

Salma Hayek Pinault and Francois-Henri Pinault hosted the mothers2mothers Winter Fundraiser dinner in support of mothers2mothers’ work to create a generation free from HIV on Wednesday (November 29) in London.

Keira Knightley: The British actress wore a signature dress from The Vampire’s Wife in sumptuous black velvet with frilled sleeves adding a mild shimmer.

James Righton: It was actually Keira’s husband James who stole the limelight on this occasion donning a Gucci Spring 2016 red suit. What dawned on me the second I saw James, was how this look would’ve worked just a well for Keira.

Jenna Coleman In The Vampire’s Wife – British Vogue’s December Issue Dinner Party

Jenna Coleman joined a host of stylish ladies including Adwoa Aboah, Alexa Chung, Naomie Harris and Alicia Vikander to celebrate Edward Enninful’s first cover for British Vogue on Tuesday (November 7) in London.

The British actress is the latest star to fall for the retro-inspired charms of The Vampire’s Wife.

While the shimmering silver metallic dress is the perfect choice for the start of the festive season, I also love that she paired the frock with a lush velvet navy coat which was made to be showcased, not confined to the cloakroom.

Styled with a Les Petit Joueurs ‘Trilly’ bag, the overall look conjures up the decadence of English countryside parties.

You may remember that Dakota Johnson wore the shorter version of this dress last month.

Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards 2017 Red Carpet Roundup

There were lots of striking outfits at the Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards 2017 in London, England on Thursday (November 2).

Arizona Muse: Proving black isn’t boring, the model presented a glamorous finish in Ralph & Russo Fall 2017 Couture. The plunging neckline was decorated with a myriad of rhinestones mimicking a statement necklace. A high slit provided some relief to the ornate front and long sleeves.

Georgia May Jagger: The model wore The Vampire’s Wife Cate dress. The inky mini was emboldened with a metallic blue floral detail and delicate frills. She brought out the blue tones with her clutch and makeup, while the vertiginous black sandals enhanced her pins and the dress’s short hemline.

Natasha Poly: Clad in Vivienne Westwood Couture, the Russian model looked ravishing in the jewel tone floral sequin corseted mini dress, with nude underskirt. Some might wish the under layer wasn’t visible, but the surprise detail enhanced the lighter tones in the outer layer while balancing the thicker shoulder band.

Dakota Johnson In The Vampire’s Wife – Intimissimi New York Grand Opening

Dakota Johnson attended the grand opening of Intimissimi in New York on Wednesday (October 18).

As we all know Dakota loves all things Gucci, however, her second favourite brand appears to be The Vampire’s Wife, along with a host of celebrities including Sienna Miller.

The actress wore their signature ‘Cate’ dress possessing a fun, youthful feel which extended to her fur and feather festooned bag and Chloe Gosselin sandals.

I love how the iridescent fabric is so radiant in under the lights and how the ruffles contour the frock for a truly feminine flourish.

You haven’t been that taken by some of The Vampire’s Wife’s outings so far, so do you rate this look?

Celebrities Love…The Vampire’s Wife

If you’re anything like a certain crush of stylish beauties, then you’ve likely also been bewitched by The Vampire’s Wife. The label from Susie Cave—her husband is Nick Cave AKA rock’s one-time Prince of Darkness—has captivated a seemingly endless number of celebrities with its telltale brand of feminine mystique.

Elisabeth Moss wore a more gothic variation of the brand in a shimmery, elegant green ruffle dress, while Sienna Miller played up her ruffles in a more girlish light. Meanwhile, Salma Hayek was seen celebrating Victorian florals in a modern, vintage-inspired gown.

But, it was The Vampire’s Wife pink lamé ‘Cate’ dress that has really but starlets under its spell. The dark and moody romanticism of its floral print has been seen in short and long variations on Sienna Miller, Ruth Negga, and January Jones who have each put their personalized spin on the design.

However, these girls aren’t the only ones showing off the distinct, broody allure of The Vampire’s Wife. Alexa Chung wore the brand in Paris, Dakota Johnson was on ‘The Today Show’ with her TVW look, and Birdy took to the red carpet in a velvet gown at the BFI Luminous Fundraising Gala.

The bohemian tinges of Florence Welch’s style likewise made her a glorious wearer of the brand in Ireland, while Maggie Gyllenhaal carried the TVW torch with a glittery look on Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens Live.’ At the ‘Baby Driver’ Kuala Lumpur premiere, Lily James was also dressed in the label.

With such a roster thus far, and the rush of fall’s seasonal flair in the air, we can only surmise that there will be plenty more vampy Vampire’s Wife moments to come.
