The CFDA, WWD & Variety Celebrate Runway To Red Carpet Initiative

To celebrate the inaugural launch of the Runway to Red Carpet initiative, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Variety and Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) hosted a star-studded luncheon on Tuesday (February 20) at the Chateau Marmont, which was sponsored by Karma Automotive.

A range of starlets were in attendance. However, if you had just looked at their ensembles, you’d never know they were at the same event—so diverse were their modes of dress.

Olivia Munn: I like the sunny outlook of this Veronica Beard Spring 2018 warm-weather-ready suit set, with the drawstring detailing adding an element of feminine allure. Obviously, the shorts didn’t stand up so well to the creases from sitting.

Lea Michele: Opting for a more romantically feminine offering, Lea wore a Zuhair Murad floral gown with a ruffled peplum. I can imagine this dress looked very pretty in the garden outside.

January Jones: I appreciate the directional, urban-forward mood the actress was setting with this Off-White Resort 2018 look—complete with that slick-back ponytail. However, I know the deconstructed, pinstripe skirt will have many saying it looks as if she wrapped a bolt of men’s shirting material around her waist.

Who Wore Zuhair Murad Couture Better? Fan Bingbing or Heidi Klum?

Fan Bingbing took our breath-away wearing a stunning Zuhair Murad Spring 2017 Couture gown to a De Beers event hosted during Paris Fashion Week, before Heidi Klum graced the amfAR New York gala wearing the same look earlier this month.

While this is probably Heidi’s best look since….well, I can’t remember; Fan Bingbing has that je ne sais quoi which seals the win for me.

Naomie Harris In Zuhair Murad Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Naomie Harris made a long-awaited return to the red carpet this evening (February 18), for the 2018 BAFTA Awards in London.

As you know I’m a huge fan of Naomie’s style, but my immediate thoughts on her Zuhair Murad Spring 2018 two-piece look was, this feels too casual. Beautiful, perfectly in tune with her style, but not quite right for the event.

I also believe that in opting for this look that she should’ve kept the runway loose-fit trousers.

On any other red carpet – that wasn’t a major awards ceremony – I would’ve fell in love with this look – especially at any of the ‘Black Panther’ premieres.

Heidi Klum In Zuhair Murad Couture – 2018 amfAR Gala New York

I wasn’t surprised to see Heidi Klum on the red carpet for the 2018 amfAR Gala New York on Wednesday (February 7).

The ‘Project Runway’ host looked stunning in Zuhair Murad; donning a sculptural masterpiece with an explosion of colourful beads from the designers Spring 2017 Couture collection.

This is the high-end elegance, with a touch of sex appeal, we expect from Heidi. Lord knows those sheer options she gravitates to are beyond tired at this point.

With slickk back hair and Lorraine Schwartz sapphire earrings adding to the dramatic effect, this is easily her best look of 2018.

If you are having a case of deja vu, that’s because Fan Bingbing wore this same gown last year.

Holly Hunter In Zuhair Murad – HBO’s ‘Here And Now’ LA Premiere

Holly Hunter attended the LA premiere of HBO’s ‘Here And Now’ on Monday (February 5).

This Zuhair Murad Spring 2018 suit may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of the couturier known for his extravagant confections and scintillating embellishment.

However, this ready-to-wear ensemble was right in line with Holly’s no muss, no fuss style.

And, there is no question that it was a beautiful rendition of a suit, what with its sharp, polished lines, feminine peplum-inspired waist, and decorative belt contributing such a sense of subtle elegance.

2018 DGA Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The 2018 DGA Awards didn’t just see Sally Hawkins, Greta Gerwig, and Saoirse Ronan in attendance. Many more stars were on the red carpet on Saturday (February 3) in Beverly Hills, California.

Kyra Sedgwick: I believe the updo is partly to blame for the more matronly tones of this Zuhair Murad Spring 2018 fringed gown styled with Chopard jewels.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw: This Oscar de la Renta gown was a refreshing ode to modern elegance. I love how the deceptively simple silhouette radiated with subtle glimmering embellishment before giving way to a celebration of dégradé fringe below.

Allison Janney: Statuesque as always, Allison was striking in this J Mendel gown styled with Ara Vartanian earrings, a Sylva & Cie ring, a Jimmy Choo clutch, and matching red Stuart Weitzman heels. The dimensional lace bodice offered a romantic counterpoint to the sleekness of the skirt.
