Camilla Belle In Valentino – Avant Garden Gala

Camilla Belle joined Zoe Saldana for the ‘Avant Garden’ event on Saturday (July 29), hosted by Valentino in Santa Barbara, California.

Like Zoe, Camilla selected a look from the Valentino Fall 2017 collection which was captivating due to its intricate embroidery.

This look masters contemporary romanticism at its finest, which she complements with copper metallic sandals, John Hardy jewels and a white Edie Parker clutch.

I remember when some of you grew tired of Camilla’s numerous red carpet. But never grow tired of her impeccable sense of style.

Zoe Saldana In Valentino – Avant Garden Gala

With a bohemian-mod ode to garden-party style, Zoe Saldana had quite the apropos look for the ‘Avant Garden’ event on Saturday (July 29), hosted by Valentino in Santa Barbara, California.

The Valentino Fall 2017 collection took much inspiration from the Memphis Group movement, and that jazzy, pop-art influence was seen all over her colourful dress that featured a patchwork of hands, numerals, and other geometric objets.

Despite the quirk of the motifs, the design’s simple, loose silhouette maintained an easy elegance that kept the look on strong footing for such an outdoor soiree.

It was a nice change of pace from the expected garden florals blooming across a frock. Would you agree?

2017 Summer TCA Tour – Hallmark Channel And Hallmark Movies And Mysteries

The Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries edition of the 2017 Summer TCA Tour brought out a trio of starlets for the event on Thursday (July 27) in Beverly Hills, California.

Bailee Madison: You would think a whisper-light, tulle frock such as this Valentino Fall 2015 design would have all the whimsy of youth. But, despite its ode to innocence, I found something a bit mature about the dress for the young actress—perhaps owing to the necktie and her heavier application of makeup.

Danica McKellar: Taking advantage of vibrant, summer colours while she can, Danica embraced a bright palette in this Laundry by Shelli Segal fit-and-flare frock. While the floral print was already questionable in freshness factor, her styling sent the look straight away into dated territory. It had no chance with that teal-beaded jewelry, her matching seafoam-green nails, and snakeskin heels.

Cara Santana: Stylistically opposing her fellow actresses, Cara took a far darker approach in a Christian Siriano Fall 2017 metallic ruffle dress. What saved the look was her simple approach to styling with matching Schutz sandals and minimal jewels, even if her clutch as a bit on the large side.

Front Row @ Valentino Fall 2017 Couture

Valentino closed Fall 2017 Couture Week in Paris on Wednesday (July 6), with the balmy evening leading attendees to opt for flowy gowns.

Laetitia Casta: Following her Vogue Paris Foundation dinner unimpressive look, the model turned things around in this feminine Valentino Fall 2017 halter number.

Brie Larson: Taking in her second show of the week, Brie’s Valentino Resort 2018 gown felt very similar to her first in that it makes a dark, whimsy statement; this time without any heavy jewels.

Sofia Coppola: The directors red carpet M.O. has always comfort and easy wearability; two things this simple green Valentino Resort 2018 dress possesses. I like how her accessories, mostly the necklace, prevents look this from feeling too causal for the event.
