Kate Mara In Valentino – Grand Marnier Campaign Launch

While Kate Bosworth was going for something a little more experimental, Kate Mara stayed with tried-and-true for the Grand Marnier’s new campaign launch on Tuesday (March 6) in New York City.

You could say this black Valentino Spring 2018 sits firmly within Kate’s comfort-zone, however, this dress is realized with a sporty profile due to the cut-outs and mesh bodice.

I’m sure Maria Shavapova is kicking herself that she didn’t pick this one up first.

Kate’s styling was very simple with slick back hair and a selection of subtle jewels plus a pair of silvery pumps for added interest.

2018 Oscars & Oscar Parties Menswear Roundup

Many of the men brought their A game to the 2018 Oscars and Oscars parties, including the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in California.

Chadwick Boseman: The ‘Black Panther’ star continued his reign of sartorial power in this Givenchy Haute Couture suit that was inspired by a full look in the Spring 2018 collection. However, I love how he made the long, embellished jacket his own—sleekly styling it with black shirting and trousers and the zipper-accented shoes.

Donald Glover: This Gucci tux such a handsome-luxe approach with the velvet jacket taking it to the next level in partnership with the relaxed-suave appeal of the slipper shoes. A David Yurman ring completed the look.

Tom Holland: Sometimes double-breasted jackets can come across as a bit contrived, but I love how Tom wore this Hermès suit so sharply. It was a standout on the Oscars red carpet with his Piaget watch adding that final touch.

2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet Roundup

The crush of beauties continued in full force on the red carpet of the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party last night (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California.

Odeya Rush: The young starlet was a vision in this neon-bright chartreuse Vivienne Westwood Couture gown. The sculptural, one-shoulder ruffle detail is nothing we haven’t seen before, but the bold colour made the look feel dynamic. I do think she could have offered up a more youthful beauty look—and less bronzer—to accompany the sophisticated sass of the gown.

Dree Hemingway: There was a delicate daintiness to this Valentino Pre-Fall 2018 nude, embellished lace gown, which Dree echoed in her minimal hair and makeup. The yellow-tinged, ribbon belt made all the difference in breathing a bit of life into the neutral dress, with Repossi jewels to complete the look.

Nina Dobrev In Valentino – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Nina Dobrev joined the post-Oscars festivities at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California.

Like Rashida Jones, Nina also opted for a loosely fitted Valentino Spring 2018 gown.

In Nina’s case, her tiered prairie-girl version offered a bit higher take on glamour with the silver embellishment—plus the directional edge of the cutout bodice.

It may still be an acquired taste on the red carpet. But, Nina owned it with her sleek styling—and by thankfully opting against the black underskirt.

Rashida Jones In Valentino – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Rashida Jones offered up a relaxed-glam approach for the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California.

Her Valentino Spring 2018 dress relied on its painterly print to make the primary impact.

But I found myself distinctly missing the additional bib detail from the runway, as without it, the gown seemed a bit unfinished and quite casual.

I also was craving a bit more shape to what I would classify as a rather bohemian look for the Oscars parties.

But, I do love her pretty styling with her breezy, effortless bun and striking earrings.
