Jennifer Lopez In Valentino – 2017 Met Gala

I will be the first to admit I did a double-take upon seeing Jennifer Lopez at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

This could be more fabric than the entertainer has worn in all her previous looks combined.

Majorly dialing back the overt sex appeal that she favours by wearing this diaphanous Valentino gown, I have to applaud her for trying something new.

That said, I found this look to translate as the exact opposite of fashion-forward. Instead, it was rather dated—from its icy prom-blue colour, to J. Lo’s styling including the large diamond earrings, frosted lip, and half-up ’do.

OMEGA ‘Lost In Space’ 60th Anniversary Party

A collection of stars celebrated the 60th anniversary of OMEGA Speedmaster at the ‘Lost in Space’ event, held in London on Wednesday (April 26), where OMEGA timepieces were the accessory du jour.

Gemma Arterton: I love how this Jenny Packham Fall 2017 LBD featured tonal fringe adding a bit of pizzazz to the minimalist look.

Liv Tyler: The rosy-pink Valentino frock, printed in whimsical line drawings and cut through with red knife pleats, provided a striking, soft and strong colour contrast. But I do wish the dress was more nipped-in at the waist, and that Liv had skipped the larger handbag.

Clemence Poesy: Featuring a funky, retro print, this Chloé frock sent me straight back to fall when styled with tights and chunky loafers. Unfortunately, Clemence’s au naturel beauty approach did nothing to breathe vibrancy into the look.

Cate Blanchett In Valentino – ‘Manifesto’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett was back on the red carpet for the premiere of ‘Manifesto’ during the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival on Wednesday (April 26) in New York City.

It’s rare that I view any Fall runway outfit and wish the actress had kept the coat, but that was definitely the case with this Valentino Fall 2017 look.

Usually Cate can sell anything to me, even those double layered Louis Vuitton trousers, but this is awful.

Shapeless, uninspiring, bland styling. I’m quite shocked at how bad this is.

If you can find one positive other than her gorgeous face, please let me know in the comments.

Monica Bellucci In Valentino Couture – 2017 Beijing International Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Monica Bellucci graced the red carpet for the closing ceremony of 2017 Beijing International Film Festival (BJIFF) on Sunday (April 23) in China.

The Italian actress broke a habit of a lifetime wearing her second red Valentino gown in a row.

I’m not surprised Monica opted to modify the gown, as she always possesses a sultry air and the ruffled white collar would’ve got in the way of that.

Even thought the Couture gown was perhaps too snug on the chest, this was a stunning look from Monica. Very fitting for the location and the occasion.

2017 Beijing International Film Festival

The opening ceremony of the 2017 Beijing International Film Festival in China on Sunday (April 16) brought with it a number of elaborate looks to usher in the festivities.

Liu Yifei 刘茜美子 : It’s hard not to be fully enchanted by this Zuhair Murad Spring 2017 Couture lavender-purple confection, what with its extravagantly voluminous tulle skirt and cascades of glittering embellishment. I love how the exploded peplum folds added a modern edge to thi fairy-tale princess moment.
