‘Backstage Secrets’ By Russell James Book Launch

A flurry of supermodels were out in force to support noted Aussie photographer Russell James and his new book, ‘Backstage Secrets’ on Saturday (November 18) in Shanghai, China.

Karlie Kloss: Sometimes Karlie plays it safe, so I love how playful this sporty David Koma Resort 2018 mesh frock was. I do think she could have extended the fun to her shoes with a bright-pink pair instead of these Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals.

Martha Hunt: With a play on lavender metallic, this Baja East Spring 2018 two-piece set was sassy if nothing else. Also wearing a pair of Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, she let the outfit do all the talking with the shoes all but disappearing.

Sara Sampaio: I like how Sara balanced out the wide-leg appeal of these Paule Ka trousers with a sultry spliced Y/Project cutout bodysuit.

Karlie Kloss In Elie Saab – 2017 CMA Awards

Karlie Kloss made a stunning entrance onto the red carpet for the 2017 CMA Awards at the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday (November 8) in Nashville, Tennessee.

Elie Saab’s modern romance is beautifully translated in this crimson-red Spring 2018 gown which sees the model show a slightly more sultry side to her red carpet style.

Those non-too-fond of the granny pants trend will be thankful for the lining which still allows the beauty of the multi-slit gown to remain in tact.

Beladora jewels and Gianvito Rossi sandals completed her gorgeous look.

2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The stylish ladies were out in full force at the 2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards on Monday (November 6) in Brooklyn, New York.

Sara Sampaio: The Portuguese model charmed in a J Mendel Resort 2018 mini. The short shape and blush colour were enlivened with feathered appliqués. The dusty neutral tones and simple styling allowed the texture to be appreciated without the bird connotations.

Karlie Kloss:
 Striking a shimmering statement, the model donned a Christian Dior frock. The long sleeves and ankle-length hemline had a prim feel, but the geometric pattern and shimmering details added much allure.

Lauren Santo Domingo: Also in a feathered confection, the Moda Operandi cofounder was clad in Calvin Klein Fall 2017. Similar to Sara, the textured look had a sophisticated finish thanks to the blush-toned feathers but hers were accented with red and yellow. Given the lightness of the dress, I would have preferred a softer shoe without the black details. You may remember that Julianne Moore wore this same dress to the Met Gala.

WSJ Magazine 2017 Innovator Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The WSJ Magazine 2017 Innovator Awards on Wednesday (November 1) in New York City were an elegant affair with many stylish attendees opting for an inky colour palette.

Naomi Campbell: Despite the asymmetrical proportions of her Jean Paul Gaultier Couture outfit, methinks many will be focused on the chain facial jewellery. She went for a show-stopping look, but I wish there were a few less accessories so we could better appreciate the way the dress merges into trousers.

Gwyneth Paltrow:
Donning Michael Kors Collection Spring 2018, the actress tempered a sleek white and black dress with an oversized black blazer. I’m sure many will describe this as shapeless, but I found the proportions refreshing. What’s more, I appreciate the way she carried it off with a relaxed elegance.

Maddie Ziegler:
The dancer struck a pose in a slinky Tommy Hilfiger slip dress which was enlivened by gold zigzags and inky sequined diamonds on the hem. The gold lace-up shoes tied in the frock’s detail while adding a fun element that was appropriate for her 15 years.

2017 amfAR & The Naked Heart Foundation Fabulous Fund Fair

Natalia Vodianova’s annual Fabulous Fund Fair for The Naked Heart Foundation traveled to New York City for the first time in partnership with amfAR on Saturday (October 28). Guests did not shirk their costume duties, either, for the Halloween-themed bash that saw a range of extravagant outfits.

Natalia Vodianova: There was no danger of missing the Naked Heart founder in the crowd, as she was the life-size incarnation of a Jeff Koons sculpture in her Andrey Bartenev balloon-esque design, further amped up by green Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2018 boots.

Naomi Campbell: There was almost more dress in the supermodel’s headdress than in her actual metallic-laced mini from The Blonds Fall 2017 collection.

Izabel Goulart: The model may have been channeling a Frida Kahlo-like spirit, but her Christian Dior Spring 2018 sheer embellished confection was very much within her go-to sexy style. Chopard jewels completed the look that was on the Red Carpet Wish List for Diane Kruger.

Get the look: Karlie Kloss’ desert-inspired warm makeup

Celebrity makeup artist Vincent Oquendo worked with Karlie Kloss for Dior’s Spring 2018 presentation yesterday in Paris, France.

INSPIRATION:
“Karlie’s look for Dior was inspired by the desert, I’m very inspired by those warm orange and beige tones of the desert and the last Dior collection was shown in the desert it felt like a natural fit.”

GET THE LOOK:
“Karlie’s skin was prepped using Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Charlotte Tilburys Magic Cream. For creating luminous skin, a combination of Mac Face and Body and NARS Sheer Glow foundation in M2 was used as a base, followed by Serge Lutens Color Correcting Concealer.

To give structure to the cheekbones, Kevyn Aucoin’ Contour Pen in Medium was swiped under the cheekbones and blended into the foundation. To give more depth and warmth to the contour, Dior’s Diorskin Nude Air Tan was overlaid on top followed by Dior-skin Nude Air Luminizer on the high points of the cheekbones to create more dimension and a luminous glow. To give the skin color and classic French girl cheeks, Dior Blush in both Rose Chérie and New Red were lightly swiped over the apples of the cheeks and blended into the cheekbone, giving a rosey flush to the face.

Both blushes were also lightly washed over the eye lids to create a natural, mono chromatic feel. Karlies brows were shaped and feathered using Anastasia of Beverly Hills Eyebrow Powder Palette, and set with Glossier’s Boy Brow in Brown. The look was tied together by filling in the lips with Charlotte Tilburys Lip Pencil in Pillow Talk, topped off with Rouge Dior Liquid Lip in Jungle Matte and Dior Lip Glow.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Spring 2018

As could be expected, the Christian Dior Spring 2018 fashion show brought together a number of beautiful femmes to celebrate the new collection during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 26).

Natalia Vodianova: While we’ve seen the signature ‘ChristianDior’ straps on dresses before, I loved the beaded variation employed on this Dior orange feather dress that delivered the best of both worlds between whimsy and elegance. Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Janice’ black suede corset booties and a black velvet ‘Le Coeur de Dior’ bag rounded out the look with an edgy-Victorian, fall spirit.

Emily Ratajkowski: Opting to not wear Dior, Emily donned a Brock Collection Resort 2018 dress that walked the line between romantic softness and seduction with its corsetry bodice and thigh-high slit. The look was styled with Altuzarra D’Orsay canvas pumps.

Alexa Chung: The writing was on the walls—or the sweater and skirt—with this Christian Dior ‘Lascaux’ print ensemble that was inspired by the Paleolithic cave paintings in Lascaux, France. She also wore Dior black booties and a black glazed calfskin ‘C’est Dior’ flap bag to complete the artsy, casually sophisticated statement.
