Chopard Space Party

Galactic with a touch of diamonds was said to be the dress code of the Chopard SPACE Party, co-hosted by Rihanna, during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Friday (May 19), and the stars in attendance indeed delivered a constellation of looks appropriately dusted with Chopard jewels.

Bella Hadid: Lest you think Bella had turned a corner with a newly modest style after the ‘Okja’ premiere, her Roberto Cavalli Couture slit-to-thigh gown promptly signaled her return to the leg jut. But, it was necessary to show off her custom-made Rene Caovilla gladiator sandals. I always find satin a challenging fabric, and that was evidenced here. Futuristically winged eyeliner finished the look.

Adriana Lima: Looking impossibly regal, Adriana struck a divine note in this Reem Acra Spring 2018 Bridal gown that would never be confused for a wedding dress. I was in awe of the glamour that exuded form the embellished top and dramatic, caped split sleeve.

Kendall Jenner: I love the sculptural mood of this shimmering Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture design that could certainly pass for space-age sophistication.

Winnie Harlow In Zuhair Murad Couture – ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Winnie Harlow glided down the red carpet for the ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ screening during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 18).

I have to say I was a little disappointed by this Zuhair Murad Spring 2017 Couture offering from Winnie.

Someone with her fashion-forward prowess should’ve gone for something more daring. And by daring I don’t mean an Alexandre Vauthier Couture dress slashed to the hip bone, more like an avant-garde Jean Paul Gaultier design.

The electric blue silk of this Couture gown didn’t travel well according to the creases, so hopefully she will have the opportunity to dazzle us again before this festival concludes.

Chopard jewels and René Caovilla sandals completed the look.

Sara Sampaio In Zuhair Murad Couture – ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Sara Sampaio attended the 2017 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and premiere of ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ on Wednesday (May 17).

For the occasion, she wore a dramatic Zuhair Murad Couture gown from the Spring 2017 collection.

The plunging neckline and dramatic bell shape of the gown only amplify the intricate detail work of the beading. And of course, how can you not note that the beading is in the shape of fireworks? This is definitely a stunning fashion explosion on the red carpet.

I do however miss the peplum detail from the runway–I understand why she opted against it, since it could have come across bulky and awkward for real life wear, but since Cannes is a place for drama and risks, I wish she would have ‘gone there’!

Diamond jewels and a long, loose braid keep this look equal parts elegant and modern, and I’m a fan!

Zendaya In Zuhair Murad Couture – 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards

Zendaya, ever the unpredictable red-carpet chameleon, was also at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, hosted on Sunday (May 7) in LA.

On a night when we might have thought she would go super-edgy or wonderfully wacky, she kept us on our toes and veered in the direction of vintage glam instead.

She was every bit the retro darling in a Zuhair Murad Fall 2016 Couture olive-green dress that was rich with tonal embellishment.

I even forgot about my sheer fatigue, as this look was so enchanting.

Tucked-under curls completed the elegant throwback moment that Zendaya wore with a modern command of form.

Demi Lovato In Zuhair Murad Couture – 2017 Time 100 Gala

Not one to shy away from glamour, Demi Lovato attended the 2017 Time 100 Gala on Tuesday (April 25) in New York City.

The actress wore a Zuhair Murad Fall 2016 Couture gown which takes the thirst for something sparkly literally with a sequin-embellished bodice.

I love the balance of the softly flared skirt which falls away to make this look a statement of fun and sensual femininity.

The look was complete with sapphire Chopard jewels.

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.
