Laura Pausini In Valentino Couture – 2017 Grammy Awards

Laura Pausini attended the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12).

The singer wore a long-sleeved, black Valentino Couture gown from the Fall 2016 collection.

To say that this dress leaves much to be desired is quite the understatement for me. It is just so ‘meh’.

However, a couple of tweaks could have really helped things–getting her dark hair pulled up and off of the dark dress would have helped, and some sort of really eye-catching jewelry, like the necklace we see on the runway, would have also elevated the look dramatically.

You may recall that Nicole Kidman wore the shorter version of the look last month, and losing some of the length helps a lot for me.

Am I missing the point, or are you equally underwhelmed?

2017 BAFTAs Red Carpet Roundup

More stars were also seen at the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

Hannah Bagshawe: Bringing more ethereal glamour to the red carpet, Hannah looked simply sensational in this fully embroidered Alexander McQueen dress.

Eddie Redmayne: Working a monochrome look from Dior Homme, Eddie was one of the best dressed men for me. Simple, elegant and spot on.

Daisy Ridley: This is one of my favourite dresses from the night actually. Roland Mouret knows how to do statement chic, and I love the mix of black, red and white, plus the floral print panels. There’s a lot going on, but it all works well together, including the Jimmy Choo ‘Tower’ pumps.

Caitriona Balfe In Valentino – 2017 BAFTAs

Caitriona Balfe attended the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

The ‘Outlander’ actress continued the statement-making trend for this red carpet in this Valentino Spring 2017 dress with a Hayward clutch.

This will definitely divide a lot of people. Some will think it’s perfect for this actress, that the colours clash wonderfully and the drop-waist flatters her. Others will think there’s one too many hues, one too many fabrics.

I personally like it. I’m all for clashing colours and textures, and I love the metallic pleated skirt. The one thing I could have lost are the ruffles on the sleeves, I don’t think they bring anything extra to the gown.

Are you for or against this look?

Monica Bellucci In Valentino – ‘La Traviata’ Valencia Premiere

The ‘La Traviata’ premiere took place on Thursday (February 9) in Valencia, Spain.

What was so special about this night?

Well, it was the first time in a long time that I can recall Monica Bellucci wearing a colour other than black or navy.

The colour-shy Italian actress looked radiant wearing a Valentino chiffon red romantic gown.

Moving away from the colour aspect; I love how this look exudes timeless glamour.

Ruth Negga In Valentino – AARP’s 16th annual Movies For Grownups Awards

Following the Academy Awards nominee luncheon, Ruth Negga took to the red carpet for AARP’s 16th annual Movies For Grownups Awards on Monday (February 6) in Beverly Hills, California.

This softly-hued, utterly feminine Valentino Pre-Fall 2017 gown perfectly showcases Ruth’s romantic side after we’ve witnessed her playful and edgy red carpet looks.

I love how the simple cut dress leaves all the focus on the spectacular embellishments.

Ruth is such a classic beauty that nothing else was needed to enhance this look.
