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?

Gwendoline Christie In Vivienne Westwood Couture – 2017 SAG Awards

I don’t believe that the SAG Awards is the “less serious” date on the awards season calendar, but I do believe it can be a great time to take a risk.

Gwendoline Christie was one of the few to opt for a trouser-ed look for the event on Sunday (January 29), but unfortunately, like most who opted for trousers – excluding Evan Rachel Wood – this Vivienne Westwood Couture jumpsuit fell flat.

Even with the myriad of sequins and cinched in waist the look felt cumbersome and ill-fitted.

Viola Davis In Vivienne Westwood Couture – 2017 SAG Awards

Viola Davis attended the 2017 SAG Awards in LA on Sunday (January 29).

The ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ star wore a white, strapless Vivienne Westwood Couture gown, which she paired with a dramatic diamond collar and black box clutch.

Can we just stop for a second and say how amazingly radiant Viola is? And while this dress isn’t going to be memorable five years from now, I love the contrast of the white satin on Viola’s gorgeous skin, and I don’t have any complaints about the look.

Rashida Jones In Vivienne Westwood Couture – 2017 SAG Awards

Rashida Jones attended the 2017 SAG Awards in LA on Sunday (January 29).

The ‘Angie Tribeca’ actress wore a flowing floor-length gown by Vivienne Westwood couture.

The result is an effortlessly feminine look that is one of Rashida’s best. The pale pink hue and waistband bow are young and playful, which we don’t see on the carpet enough.

Rashida kept it simple with minimal accessories, to let her dress shine.

Michelle Monaghan In Vivienne Westwood Couture – ‘Sleepless’ LA Premiere

Michelle Monaghan attended the ‘Sleepless’ premiere at the Regal LA Live Stadium 14 in Los Angeles, California on Thursday (January 5).

Donning the glitziest version of a robe possible, she took to the red carpet in a slinky Vivienne Westwood Couture gown.

When executed well, the sleepwear-as-outerwear trend can be quite sultry and chic. Yet, here, the plunge was way too deep and the bagginess of the extra fabric at the waist simply failed to flatter.

Rounded earrings and a choker along with a tightly wound topknot finished the look.
