Naomi Watts In Valentino – CinemaCon 2017

There have been a number of stars at CinemaCon 2017 in Las Vegas, and Naomi Watts joined the mix on Wednesday (March 29).

Stripped of its boots and coat from the runway presentation, this Valentino Pre-Fall 2017 dress fell a bit flat on the red carpet.

With a more or less shapeless form and the horizontal lines of mini-fringe, the effect was strangely sagging—and certainly not as flattering as it could be to Naomi’s lovely figure.

The visible lining underneath only added insult. Would you agree?

Demi Lovato In Jill Jill Stuart, Mugler & Valentino – ‘Smurfs: The Lost Village’ Promo Tour

Demi Lovato was sporting a shorter hair style for her promo tour of ‘Smurfs: The Lost Village’ this week.

UN and ‘Smurfs: The Lost Village’: On Saturday (March 18) the mood was playful for the International Day of Happiness at the UN Headquarters, from the fit and flare silhouette of her Jill Jill Stuart dress to her bespoke Edie Parker ‘Smurfette’ clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Darcie’ white sandals.

Musicians On Call Presents A Night To Celebrate Elvis Duran: Demi swapped playful for sexy donning a Mugler Resort 2017 dress punctuated with colour-block panels and cut-outs to reveal subtle hints of skin which she styled with red Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals.

UCLA Semel Institute’s ‘Open Mind Gala’: Last night (March 22) there was an overwhelming feeling of serenity oozing from her Valentino Spring 2017 draped dress styled with an L.K.Bennett ‘Nina’ clutch, Pasquale Bruni jewels and Alejandra G. sandals.

I love how each look is well styled and tells its own story, but the Mugler look stands out the most with the other two presenting a refreshing change of pace.

Valentino Fall 2017 Front Row

The Valentino Fall 2017 show was presented during Paris Fashion Week on Sunday (March 5) with a few fashion darlings in attendance.

Kate Mara: The actress turned up the precious panache in a Valentino Pre-Fall 2017 tiered, floral-patterned frock with matching seafoam-green sandals.

Emily Ratajkowski: In a floaty Valentino Spring 2017 embroidered dress, she showed off a chic boho-hippy side, with a sweet side braid and furry handbag added for additional whimsy.

: With another rendition of the Pre-Fall 2017 collection’s florals, the actress put a funkier spin on this glittery, graphic dress with raspberry platform boots.

Sarah Paulson In Vintage Valentino Premiere Of FX Network’s ‘Feud: Bette And Joan’

Sarah Paulson joined Catherine Zeta Jones for the premiere of FX Network’s ‘Feud: Bette And Joan’ on Wednesday (March 1) in Hollywood.

Also in black and white, the actress charmed in a vintage Valentino plaid dress that had a certain magnetic charisma for its sophisticated femininity that possessed timeless appeal.

I love the little details tied up in this tea-length dress, with the thin black piping, the buttons, and the bows at the wrist all making a chic impression.

The same could be said for Sarah’s modern styling of the look, taking it to the next level with Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Leda’ pumps, Jacob & Co. jewels, and the addition of colour via her Edie Parker plum clutch that cleverly matched her lip.

2017 Oscars Menswear Roundup

A handsome handful of guys also took to the red carpet for the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

David Oyelowo: The sharp suaveness of this Dolce & Gabbana tux, with its white dress jacket and contrast black labels, was undeniable. Christian Louboutin ‘Dada’ loafers capped off the look with a touch of polish.

Andrew Garfield: The classic black tuxedo received a slim-line, slightly cropped proportion in this Tom Ford number.

Riz Ahmed: Our third rendition of the tux came courtesy of Riz, who took his to more colourful territory in a blue Ermenegildo Zegna Couture suit accented with Montblanc studs and cufflinks and Christian Louboutin ‘Alpha Male’ shoes. For a couture piece, I would have expected a slightly more precise fit.

Ruth Negga In Valentino Couture – 2017 Oscars

Ruth Negga was one of the first stars to hit the red carpet of the 2017 Oscars on Sunday night (February 26).

The actress wore a long-sleeved, red Valentino Couture gown with Irene Neuwirth and Gemfields jewels.

The high neckline and lace detailing on the gown are elegant and dramatic, and this total look is a stand-out, despite being quite understated.

I love Ruth’s Crown, earrings & ring are designed by Irene Neuwirth and feature responsibly sourced Gemfeilds Mozambican Rubies, and the blue ribbon in support of ACLU.

All in all, a truly lovely look, and a great way to kick off the night.

Riz Ahmed In Valentino – 2017 Elle Style Awards

After seeing Riz Ahmed’s sharp Burberry suit at the BAFTAs we knew he was one to watch; and that quickly proved to be the case when we saw him at Monday night’s Elle Style Awards.

Taking home the ‘Actor of the Year’ award for ‘The Night Of’ and ‘Rogue One’, the actor donned a Valentino suit.

When you look at menswear collections they’re practically begging men to be more adventurous with their outfits, so I am delighted to see Riz is up for the challenge by wearing a full-on floral and star print suit.

This works for me because the look doesn’t have a chintzy feel plus going sans tie allowed the look to feel less fussy and stay on the fashion forward track.

The look was styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo’ shoes.
