Cynthia Erivo In Thom Browne – 2017 Met Gala

Cynthia Erivo was making her Met Gala debut on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Judging by her Thom Brown tailored beaded gown which was one of many dramatic looks of the night, she’ll be invited back as it was very much on-theme.

What I love most about this look is that at 5ft 1′ she’s not overwhelmed by this gown; wearing it rather than it wearing her.

Cynthia isn’t afraid to take risks and this is one that paid off.

The look was styled with Mikimoto earrings, Sophia Webster shoes and a Thom Browne clutch.

Solange Knowles In Thom Browne – 2017 Met Gala

Solange Knowles was one of many I was looking forward to seeing at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

Some might see a singer in a puffy coat with a train, I see a woman wearing Thom Browne who interpreted the theme correctly sans all the bells and whistles we saw in Rihanna’s look.

Solange brand of avant-garde dressing was cool and measured with a quiet rebellious spirit.

I’m going to give her extra points for her own interpretation of Rei Kawakubo’s blunt bob.

The look was styled with a Mark Cross bag.

2017 Grammy Awards Menswear

The 2017 Grammy Awards wasn’t without its fair share of menswear looks that ran the gamut from traditional to totally out-there.

John Legend: The singer kept it classic in a Gucci black suit, made unique by virtue of the dark rose-coloured dress shirt and matching floral-printed bow tie.

Desiigner: Like some of the girls at the Grammys, the hip hop artist also bared his chest in a luxe velvet vintage Armani suit in a rich eggplant hue styled with Jimmy Choo boots and the requisite chains.

Anderson Paak: The rapper opted for a directional Rick Owens ensemble that was monk-meets-musician.

Janelle Monae In Thom Browne – Virtuosos Tribute

Janelle Monáe might as well have been a glittering trophy herself at the Virtuosos Tribute, hosted during the Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Saturday (February 4).

She used the occasion to step away from her signature black-and-white statements for a silver streak.

The Thom Browne Spring 2017 gown fused the surreal shine of a glitzy disco ball with a trompe l’oeil jacket and tie motif.

It’s a half-and-half, split personality dress, but Janelle never does anything halfway. So, she styled the dynamic look with a bold fuchsia lip and plenty more sparkle from jewelry and a smattering of hair jewels, too.

I was immediately reminded of a similar, black and white Thom Browne frock she wore to the Image Maker Awards. But, so novel was the colour of this silvery ensemble for her that it didn’t matter.

Naomie Harris In Thom Browne & Armani Prive – BAFTA Tea Party & 2017 Golden Globe Awards

Naomie Harris also attended the BAFTA Tea Party on January 7 at the Four Seasons Hotel in advance of the Golden Globe Awards and post Globes party on Sunday, January 8 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel, where the nominated actress oozed radiant elegance, as we’ve come to expect.

BAFTA Tea Party: The actress’s artsy shoes were my favourite part of this look, as they elevated and modernized the Thom Browne multi-coloured patchwork dress. Did the floral embroidery at the tummy area bother anyone else? It resonated as strangely unflattering.

2017 Image Maker Awards

Marie Claire’s Image Maker Awards 2017 were held at Catch LA on January 10, 2017 in West Hollywood, California, celebrating the makeup artists, hairstylists, and others behind Hollywood’s hottest beauties.

Jessica Pare: The actress worked a geometric Camilla and Marc Fall 2017 tunic-and-pants combo that prioritized casual comfort. I’m glad she brought a more exciting cherry lip stain out to play.

Janelle Monae: There is not a doubt that Janelle was having plenty of fun with her sparkly Thom Browne Spring 2017 ensemble that put a whole new meaning to tuxedo dress. I cannot say that I loved it—or her bobby pin-spiked hair, for that matter. But what I did love was her beautiful makeup, with the subtle blue under-eye shadow and glossy nude lip.

Jessica Alba: The cutouts in Jessica Alba’s suede Balmain jacket made all the difference in the world to elevate this Spring 2017 look.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is the menswear roundup from this week.

Taylor Lautner: The actor made a return to the red carpet for the premiere of Netflix’s ‘The Ridiculous 6’ on Monday (November 30) in Universal City, California. Taylor was looking incredibly handsome wearing a Z Zegna navy suit which was brilliantly tailored for modern-classic vibe.

Chris Hemsworth: The actor attended the London premiere of ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ on Wednesday (December 2) wearing a Burberry tailoring suit styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo’ shoes. Rendered in the brand’s signature slim fit silhouette, in this refined suit he puts his best foot forward with gentlemanly confidence.

Orlando Bloom: The British actor was honoured with the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award at the 11th Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball on Tuesday (December 1) in New York City. I love how he projects himself as a modern gentleman in this navy tuxedo while still possessing plenty of boyish charm.
