Jennifer Garner In Johanna Ortiz – ‘The Tribes Of Palos Verdes’ LA Premiere

Jennifer Garner typically favors classic, feminine gowns with a fitted waist and gently flared skirt. Her ensemble at ‘The Tribes Of Palos Verdes’ LA premiere on Friday (November 17) in Los Angeles, California had many of those elements but it still captivated me.

The rich oxblood velvet of her Johanna Ortiz Fall 2017 dress had a sophisticated sensuality. This mood was enhanced by the asymmetrical sweetheart bodice.

The ruffled sleeve on the runway version would have made a romantic statement, but I get why she removed it as she normally favors cleaner silhouettes.

The blue-green sandals played up the sumptuous texture of the dress while adding a retro feel. Although, I must say I would have preferred a shoe without a platform.

How do you feel about the modified version of the frock?

Sarah Gadon In Giambattista Valli – Cinema Italian Style ’17 Opening Night Gala Premiere

Sarah Gadon stepped out at the Cinema Italian Style ’17 Opening Night Gala premiere on Thursday (November 16) in Hollywood, California

The Canadian actress was in a Giambattista Valli Fall 2017 dress which despite its short length, had an ethereal quality.

The sheer sleeves and ab cut-out provided relief to the opaque wrapped neckline and solid skirt.

I can see the ruffled sleeves being a divisive detail, but I found they were in keeping with the frock’s whimsical feel and they didn’t distract from other elements.

A Tyler Ellis clutch and ivory sandals complemented the dress’s opal colour splendidly.

Hailee Steinfeld In Barbara Bui – Variety’s 1st Annual Hitmakers Luncheon

Prior to her head-turning appearance at the 2017 American Music Awards, Hailee Steinfeld attended Variety’s 1st Annual Hitmakers Luncheon on Saturday (November 18) in Los Angeles, California.

Her Barbara Bui Spring 2018 mini dress has a fun sweetness. The asymmetrical ruffles and the black fabric prevented the outfit from becoming twee. Instead, they helped it give it an edginess.

There is still a lot to look at in the singer’s frock, but I find myself missing the belt from the runway. A contrasting buckle of any sort would have helped elevate the ensemble.

Did you miss the belt?

2017 American Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There were plenty more music lovers who joined Ciara, Selena Gomez and Nicole Kidman on the red carpet for the 2017 American Music Awards on Sunday (November 19) in LA.

Bebe Rexha: You’ll be forgiven if you thought Bebe was Kim Kardashian in this black August Getty Atelier Spring 2018 Swarovski crystal strapless dress. The resemblance is uncanny.

Heidi Klum: The ‘Project Runway’ host went back into the archives to unearth this gorgeous vintage Versace gown.

Jenna Dewan Tatum: When it comes to the archetypal music awards dresses, Jenna totally nailed it with her custom Julien Macdonald gold embellished look. John Hardy jewels added yet more shine.

Tracee Ellis Ross hosts the 2017 AMAs in Stella McCartney, Vintage Halston, Christian Siriano, Ronald van der Kemp Couture, Balmain, Giambattista Valli Couture, Paco Rabanne & Roberto Cavalli

Tracee Ellis Ross hosted the 2017 American Music Awards on Sunday (November 19) in LA, where her mother Diana Ross was honored with a lifetime achievement award, and her brother, Evan Ross with wife Ashlee Simpson Ross were also in attendance.

Starting off with two sparkling looks, Tracee graced the red carpet wearing a Stella McCartney frock. I didn’t quite get her red Tamara Mellon sandals until I realised they pick up the exposed red seams of her dress. Her jewels were courtesy of Irene Neuwirth.

I like how her embellished vintage Halston jumpsuit from Shrimpton Couture was giving off a 60s vibe especially when paired with her fuchsia pink go-go boots.

Diana Ross In Vivienne Westwood – 2017 American Music Awards

Diana Ross attended the 2017 American Music Awards on Sunday (November 19) in LA, hosted by her daughter, Tracee Ellis Ross, and attended by Ashlee Simpson Ross and son Evan Ross.

The legendary singer delighted the audience with a rare performance at the music awards show, which honored her with the lifetime achievement award.

Opting to entertain both on and off the red carpet, Diana wore a corseted black paper taffeta dress from the Vivienne Westwood Fall 2017 collection.

The look was styled with a cobweb like headpiece and flowing train which really made her stand out on the red carpet.
