2017 Oscar Parties Roundup

The 2017 Oscars party circuit was in full tilt with so many other style darlings in attendance at both the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party and Elton John’s AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (February 26). Here, a roundup of additional looks from the star-studded evening.

Emily Ratajkowski: Glitz and glam feathers both played a sultry game in this Jonathan Simkhai Fall 2017 plunge gown.

Priyanka Chopra: Speaking of glitter, Priyanka’s black Michael Kors Collection gown would have just been a standard black dress had it not been for the blitz of sequins.

Sia: I had to do a double-take with the singer’s custom Giorgio Armani cantaloupe-hued suit, as the nude-coloured lining provided a strange effect that made her hat-topped head almost appear to be floating.

Charli XCX In Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood – 2017 BRIT Awards

If you wanted ruffles, Charli XCX bought them to the 2017 Brit Awards on Wednesday (February 22) in London, England.

The singer wore this Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood dress from the Spring 2017 collection. If you wondered who Andreas is, he’s Vivienne Westwood’s husband, who has taken the reigns of her fashion House.

I love the colour of this dress, it’s fabulous against dark hair and tanned skin, and the flow of ruffles adds the perfect amount of drama too. Charli made a great choice with her barley-there sandals – those clumpy shoes on the catwalk don’t work with it at all.

Charli finished her look with Vivienne Westwood jewels, and fierce makeup – the red lip makes the perfect clash with the purple dress.

Charli XCX In Vivienne Westwood – 2017 Grammy Awards

Charli XCX was one of the ladies in red at the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12) in LA.

The silhouette of this strapless gown is undeniably that of a Vivienne Westwood design, with the corseted, fit-and-flare shape and the exaggerated sweetheart neckline.

That said, it came off as rather mature and somewhat dated for the young entertainer who could have likely had a lot more fun with her look on a night such as this.

The gathered train also created a pouf at mid-leg that canceled out any elongating effect.

Aluna Francis In Vivienne Westwood Couture Collection – amfAR New York Gala

Aluna Francis also performed at the 19th Annual amfAR New York Gala on Wednesday (February 8) in New York City.

Like Ellie Goulding, the singer also wore a look from a British designer.

Ruched, draped, corseted; this gown bares all the hallmarks of a signature Vivienne Westwood design.

Even with all those hallmarks in check, this design still possesses a fresh feel, perhaps this was due to the silver lurex fabric or perhaps Aluna’s smouldering persona is selling the look to me.

Laura Dern In Vivienne Westwood – ‘Big Little Lies’ LA Premiere

Laura Dern showcased a more experimental side to her red carpet style while attending the premiere of HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’ on Tuesday (February 7) in Hollywood, California.

Through twists and turns, cuts and drapes, this dual-colour dress conjures a distinctive silhouette that can only be attributed to Vivienne Westwood’s offbeat aesthetic.

Constructed with the label’s corseted bodice, I love that Laura took a risk with the bolder colours instead of the safer runway dark hue.

While I think the hair and dress are at odds somewhat, this is a sterling effort from Laura.

Thoughts?
