Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture – Harper’s Bazaar China Charity Gala

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture - Harper's Bazaar China Charity Gala

Fan Bingbing took to the red carpet this evening (September 19) for the Harper’s Bazaar China Charity Gala in China.

Channelling her inner Hollywood goddess, she stunned wearing a Ralph & Russo Spring 2014 Couture off-white wool crepe dress with pearl and crystal diamond-patterned embellishment.

The dress is gorgeous, the hair and makeup breathtaking, but the accessories let her down.

I could perhaps forgive the Chopard necklace on such a glamorous night, but the black and cream Louis Vuitton bag and pink glitter shoes? No.

The bag could’ve got a pass had it been smaller, because it does complement the pattern on her dress (and as the face of the Fall 2014 campaign I guess it was somewhat mandatory), but the shoes shall get no such pass.

Emporio Armani Spring 2015 Front Row

Emporio Armani Spring 2015 Front Row

Ashley Madekwe and Bella Thorne were perched in the front row of the Emporio Armani Spring 2015 show during Milan Fashion Week yesterday afternoon (September 18).

Ashley Madekwe: Embodying the elegance of the brand to a tee, the actress wore a white Emporio Armani sleeveless blazer with slim-fit trousers. Styled in a timeless, chic manner with black and white accessories, I can’t help but be captivated by the enigmatic and androgynous cool appeal of this look.

Bella Thorne: The actress also went the black and white route while opting for separates with an all-round looser fit. This I found surprising, and refreshing, considering that her style often consists of tight-fitted mini dresses. However, the only thing I would change about this look is the shoes. There is something quite clownish about them.

Vogue Fashion’s Night Out Madrid 2014

Vogue Fashion's Night Out Madrid 2014

Vogue Fashion’s Night Out Madrid 2014 took place in Spain on Thursday (September 18). Here’s a look at three lovely ladies who caught my eye.

Norma Ruiz: Now that we are moving into fall, there couldn’t be a more perfect time for those moody prints from Alberta Ferretti’s Fall 2014 collection to hit the red carpet. Norma paired her tree bark maxi skirt with a solid black top instead of the bustier we saw on the runway with positive results. I’m also loving the addition of the Roberto Cavalli clutch, which pulls the whole look together rather nicely, with an Ararat cuff adding a new dimension to the look.

Megan Montaner: The actress was perhaps my favourite of the bunch, working chic separates courtesy of Blumarine’s Spring 2014 collection. It would’ve been easy to break up the runway look and play it safe with a black blazer; however, the red and white lapel look was harder to pull off, and I’m glad to see Megan doing so with ease. A maroon byDeeksha clutch and nude Louboutins completed her look.

Nerea Garmendia: Serving up some sultry flair, the actress wore a black Inas Couture jumpsuit, with an alluring lace bodice countered with flattering straight-leg trousers. The satin panels especially on the bodice are throwing me off loving this look; however, the pink Casadei pumps are taking the majority of my attention. A gold byDeeksha clutch and Aristocrazy jewels accessorized her look.

Gucci Spring 2015 Front Row

Gucci Spring 2015 Front Row

The front row at the Gucci Spring 2015 show, hosted today (September 7) during Milan Fashion Week in Milan, Italy, included a pretty trio of Gucci-wearing girls.

Kate Moss: Fresh from her appearance at the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 presentation on Monday, the supermodel punctuated her look with statement snake print. She paired the Gucci Resort 2015 green python leather coat with a black jersey dress, black suede platform high heel sandals and a pale-blue leather Jackie soft clutch. With minimal accessories and little fluff, it’s a very ‘Kate’ look, especially topped off with barely-there makeup and natural wavy strands.

Araya A. Hargate: Also jetting from the London Burberry Prorsum show to Milan, Araya was dressed in a Gucci Fall 2014 rose techno-fabric, short-sleeve frock with a pair of blue-python, high-heel boots with horsebit detail. With her round, oversized shades, I did love the spirited, retro stance she channeled.

Charlotte Casiraghi: The Monaco royal and the face of Gucci Cosmetics, which made its runway debut today, was the picture of effortless elegance, looking incredibly chic in a Gucci Fall 2014 black leather-trimmed sleeveless cocktail dress, sophisticatedly styled with impeccable makeup, naturally, and that great red lip.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some guys taking to the red carpet recently.

Ryan Reynolds: Blake Lively’s hubby was looking very sharp at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of his latest movie ‘The Voices’ on Thursday (September 11), where he joined his Miu Miu clad co-star Anna Kendrick. The actor wore a steely navy-blue head-to-toe Brunello Cucinelli look, opting to go sans tie and buttoning down his shirt. Even as someone who is not a huge fan of beards, I have to say this look is very distinguished on him.

Benjamin McKenzie: The actor joined Jada Pinkett Smith on the red carpet for the ‘Gotham’ premiere last night (September 15) wearing a Dior Homme dark-grey suit styled with a spotted tie with Jimmy Choo shoes and a Mont Blanc watch and tie-bar pin.

Josh Hutcherson: Opting for a classic Dior Homme black wool two-button peak-lapel suit, white cotton shirt, black silk tie, and black leather derbies to the ‘Escobar: Paradise Lost’ Toronto Film Festival premiere, the blazer doesn’t appear to fit too well. Perhaps he should’ve left it unbuttoned.
