Issa Rae In Off-White – 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards


Issa Rae attended the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, hosted on Sunday (May 7) in LA.

The ‘Insecure’ actress showed off a navy Off-White leather dress styled with a Kate Spade New York ‘Everdene Lane Zurie’ clutch and Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals.

I wanted to love the dress more than I actually did. But, if I could pinpoint what put me off the look, it’s largely owed to the overly girly ruffle additions at the bodice—not to mention a slightly ill-fitted look through the skirt.

She topped off the look with some sparkle via a John Hardy ring, Le Vian earrings, and a Narcisa Pheres canary diamond bracelet.

Holland Roden In Tadashi Shoji – 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards


Holland Roden was also at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, hosted on Sunday (May 7) in LA.

A fashion flight of fancy came courtesy of her Tadashi Shoji Spring 2017 ostrich feather and fringe dress.

I love the manner in which she styled this whimsical frock, with a layer of simplicity in her Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, a bit of contrast in her blue Tyler Ellis clutch, and a dose of edginess in her Swarovski Vittore Palm cuff, Atelier Swarovski earrings, smoldering eye makeup, and messy ponytail.

Visible illusion necklines always give me pause, and that is no different here. But, otherwise, it was a lovely and fun look for Holland. Would you agree?

Yara Shahidi In Gucci – 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards

I always look forward to seeing Yara Shahidi on the red carpet. And, the young ‘Black-ish’ starlet did not disappoint at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, hosted on Sunday (May 7) in LA.

Delivering sensory overload in all the right ways, she was captivating in a Gucci Spring 2017 ensemble.

The thing about Yara is she wears such complex looks so well. Not even the rarefied combination of a Renaissance-inspired, floral-embroidered XXV (Gucci designer Alessandro Michele’s lucky number) top with a high-octane, disco-mirrored skirt could trip up her trend-forward sensibility.

She topped off the look in fine form, with the feminine flourish of bow-wrapped sandals and long braids.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead In Jonathan Simkhai – 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards

Mary Elizabeth Winstead was like a breath of fresh air on the red carpet of the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, hosted on Sunday (May 7) in LA.

The actress wore a Jonathan Simkhai Spring 2017 dress, accessorised by Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, an Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch, and a wonderfully dramatic oxblood lip.

Glitter and glitz has its place, but sometimes it cannot win out over the inherent charm of a sweetly embroidered, chambray fringe dress such as this.

I do wish it had fit slightly better about the hips, so as to avoid the creasing.

Shay Mitchell In Roberto Cavalli – 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards

Shay Mitchell took a walk on the wilder side at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, hosted on Sunday (May 7) in LA.

The ‘Pretty Little Liars’ starlet is known for her sultry style sensibility, and that side certainly came out to play in this Roberto Cavalli Fall 2016 cutout gown that flaunted her toned and bronzed physique.

Even if glittery tiger stripes aren’t your thing, I’m sure many will agree that Shay slayed the look—especially given it coincidentally seems tailor-made for the step-and-repeat behind her.

I actually much preferred the dress on her to the original presentation, as she commands it so well, styling it with statement hoop earrings and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.
