Sally Field In Yanina Couture – 2018 Costume Designers Guild Awards

Sally Field joined Kerry Washington on the red carpet for the 2018 Costume Designers Guild Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Tuesday (February 20) in California.

Looking ever so elegant and demure, the actress wore a Yanina Fall 2014 Couture gown.

My first thought was that I wished the laser cut details had also been black, but on reflection, I love how the detail enhances the silhouette, giving Sally a narrow waist.

Leslie Bibb In Yanina Couture -2018 BAFTAs

Leslie Bibb was one of the first to arrive at the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England at the Royal Albert Hall.

Like at the Golden Globes, it was anticipated that many stars would wear black to the event in solidarity with the Time’s Up movement.

The actress wore a strapless Yanina Couture gown where the silky black base was enlivened with delicate ruffles embellished with pale blue beading.

The restrained volume of the frills allowed the beading to take on a graceful, crashing wave effect.

I’m captivated by how the surface work gives the column gown such magical movement.

The Hollywood Reporter 6th Annual Nominees Night Red Carpet Roundup

Along with Greta Gerwig, many more stars were at The Hollywood Reporter 6th Annual Nominees Night on Monday (February 5) in Beverly Hills, California.

Kelly Marie Tran: When I saw this Georges Chakra Fall 2017 Couture confection on the runway, it was like a fashion fantasy. While I appreciate the lining, I do think it lost a bit of its lightness and magic as a result. I also was missing the embellished bodice detailing.

Timothee Chalamet: Intentionally or not, the young actor’s Gucci Resort 2018 forest-green suit was the perfect match with the thematic colour of the evening. It was also the perfect reflection of his casually refined style with the tailoring and T-shirt combo.

Betty Gabriel: Going completely girly, Betty donned a retro-inspired Sachin & Babi Spring 2018 frock that reminded me of a play on a poodle skirt—with embellished lips to replace the pups. I do think it would have been more successful had it been shortened to tea length.

Chrissy Teigen In Yanina Couture – 2018 Grammy Awards

Chrissy Teigen showed off her growing bump at the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) in New York City, where she joined Sza and Cardi B.

This YANINA Couture dress would have been a show-stopper no matter what thanks to its glistening material, but its effect was more impactful as this is not a typical maternity silhouette.

Granted it has a waistband, but it also has the draping along the hips and the front slit which all work in harmony to frame her pregnant figure.

Some might wish for a bit of relief from the sequins, but the cascade of them on the chest completes the piece, adding a shooting star quality.

The shorter hair and Art Deco-inspired Lorraine Schwartz earrings brought a 1920’s sentiment.

Pre-Grammys Weekend Roundup

This pre-Grammys weekend roundup left us with a motley collection of entrances in New York City that all appeared to be reading the same WDOTW memo.

Hailey Baldwin: Hailey joined another Hailee (Baldwin) at the Republic Records pre-Grammys event on Friday (January 26). However, they couldn’t have been dressed more unlike each other, as this pink Off-White Spring 2018 ensemble showed designer Virgil Abloh’s luxury streetwear vibe—done with a bubblegum ’80s twist. Jennifer Fisher jewels rounded out the directional look.

Priyanka Chopra:
With a rare misstep at the GRAMMY Salute to Industry Icons Honoring Jay-Z on Saturday (January 27), Priyanka lost me completely with this Ester Abner Spring 2018 outfit that suffered not only in fit but also in execution. All I was left with was an ill-conceived, messy bathrobe-boudoir vibe.

Julia Michaels: Also at the GRAMMY Salute event, Julia fared only marginally better in this Yanina Fall 2017 Couture frock. Exposed shoulder pads, blinding-white cuffs, and an unusual take on lining left a lot to be desired in the execution department.

Allison Janney In Yanina Couture – 2018 SAG Awards

Allison Janney was also at the 2018 SAG Awards on Sunday (January 21) in LA—and, judging by her shiny statement, she also received the same magpie memo as Danielle Brooks.

The ‘I, Tonya’ actress and nominee dazzled in a custom Yanina Couture strong-shoulder gown with all-over gunmetal paillettes.

Allison seems to be a fan of simple silhouettes that are enhanced by a wow factor such as bold use of embellishment or colour. And, this retro-forward, liquid silver dress certainly fit that bill.

Sleek styling was the way to go here with those head-to-sleeve-to-toe sequins, so I’m glad she kept it simple and straightforward with her sleek ponytail and tonal jewels.
