Fan Bingbing In Valentino, Zhang Shuai & Thom Browne – Fan Beauty Launch, Eyewear Promotion & HKSC’s 30th Anniversary Ceremony

Fan Bingbing has recently been making the rounds in China, showcasing her true range of style.

Fan Beauty Event: I love how this Valentino Spring 2018 polka dot dress dress spoke to Fan’s girlish side. The babydoll frock’s candy-land of dots was obviously selected to perfectly coordinate with her bubblegum-pink surroundings—right down to her metallic-pink pumps (no platforms in sight!) for a sassy punch.

Karen Gillan In Thom Browne – ‘The Party’s Just Beginning’ Glasgow Film Festival Premiere

Karen Gillan was shimmering on the red carpet for the world premiere of ‘The Party’s Just Beginning’ during the 14th Glasgow Film Festival on Saturday (February 24) in Scotland.

What immediately struck me about this Thom Browne Pre-Fall 2018 gown is how material appears to be draping across the body, but it’s actually tones of grey that have been embellished with sequins which create the illusion.

Keeping both the shoulder bow and nipple ring elements we see in the look book, the look was made PG-13 for the red carpet with a crystallized layer which almost felt like a layer of medieval armour.

This beautiful stand out piece was styled with metallic Casadei pumps and a Lee Savage ‘Stack’ clutch.

I’m totally blown away by the look, even though I wish Karen had worn her hair back.

The National Board Of Review Annual Awards Gala Menswear Roundup

A trio of men joined Angelina Jolie, Julianna Margolies, Saoirse Ronan, and Lupita Nyong’o among others at The National Board Of Review Annual Awards Gala on Tuesday (January 9) in New York City.

Timothée Chalamet: On some other guys, the tie on this Thom Browne gray suit would have taken me straight to the corporate office. But, the young actor manages to pull it off with his quirky panache, given the intentionally cropped proportions of the suiting.

Armie Hammer: This Brunello Cucinelli ensemble was another sharp look for the actor. What I loved the most was how smartly the baby-blue shirt and floral pin brought out his eyes. It was also a first-class lesson in how crisp and polished a menswear look can be without a tie.

Daniel Kaluuya: Speaking of no ties, Daniel was just as sleekly handsome in his dark Burberry suit styled with a solid use of a turtleneck. The pocket square also infused this look with so much personality.

Julianna Margulies In Thom Browne – The National Board Of Review Annual Awards Gala

Julianna Margulies was in attendance at the 2018 The National Board Of Review Annual Awards Gala on Tuesday (January 9) in New York City, alongside Saoirse Ronan and Lupita Nyong’o.

Black is one of the actress’s signatures so I wasn’t surprised to see that she opted for this Thom Browne Resort 2018 dress.

She removed the layers from the lookbook so the feminine silhouette and the surprise rainbow stripes on the uneven hem didn’t get lost.

The tiny trim was the only colourful addition as she accessorized with a black clutch and cut-out heels.

It was simple, chic and timeless.

2017 New York Film Critics Awards Menswear Roundup

The New York Film Critics Circle Awards on Wednesday (January 3) in New York City, wasn’t just ladies night, as a trio of handsome – well-dressed – gents were also on the scene.

Armie Hammer: There was a mixed reaction to the colour of Armnie’s previous look, but I have feeling this checked Etro suit will be roundly applauded. Not only for the stepping outside the norm and opting for a multi-hued look, but also for keeping up his consistency.

Michael B. Jordan: With his ‘ Black Panther’ promo tour on the horizon, the actor stepped back into the spotlight in a black Dolce & Gabbana brocade suit. The devil is in the detail.

Timothée Chalamet: The young actor opted for pinstripe Thom Browne suit on this occasion. Thom Brown often likes to play with the proportions of his pieces, so while the shrunken jacket might not go down too well with the majority, I think Timothée has the body frame and the panache to pull it off very well.

Yara Shahidi In Thom Browne & Opening Ceremony – The View

Yara Shahidi made a guest appearance The View on Wednesday (January 3) to promote her spin-off show, ‘Grown-ish’.

I love how her Thom Browne top and trousers upholds the brand’s preppy sensibility through collegiate-inspired stripes and colour-blocking.

If you were to sum up this look, colourful, fun, vibrant and energetic would immediately spring to mind, yet you can’t overlook the intelligence and a maturity she has to consistently present looks which are always on point.

An Opening Ceremony reversible dolman red coat and Loriblu pumps completed her look.

Janelle Monae In Thom Browne – Alvin Ailey’s 2017 Opening Night Gala

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen Janelle Monae on the red carpet, but her signature black-and-white M.O. is as strong as ever, judging by her appearance at Alvin Ailey’s 2017 Opening Night Gala on Wednesday (November 29) in New York City.

I love how she took the deconstructed elements of this tweedy Thom Browne Spring 2018 ensemble and made them work to her advantage.

It’s a directional look to be sure—with a certain theatrical bent—given the shrunken jacket and low-slung, disconnected trousers.

But she makes it work with her unique style sensibility, especially when topped off with a wide-brim hat and punchy red lip.
