Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen & Gosia Baczyńska – Poland Official Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has been on an official visit in Poland, where her new lease on style has followed her from England to Warsaw.

Warsaw Rising Museum: Arriving on Monday (July 17), she visited the Warsaw Rising Museum in an Alexander McQueen peplum suit that was lovely on its own accord. But, can we take a moment and appreciate the candy-apple-red Jenny Packham clutch and the sassier rendition of Gianvito Rossi nude pumps, each of which enhanced the fresh appeal of this classic look.

Queen’s Birthday Garden Party: I love how Catherine paid homage to her hosts with this bespoke dress from Polish designer Gosia Baczyńska. Perfect for a modern garden party, it had timeless appeal in its black-and-white palette and ladylike tea length whilst also offering an artistic edge. Pearls and a Prada clutch, not to mention yet another variation on Gianvito Rossi (ankle-strap!) heels completed the look with classic flourish.

Charlize Theron In Isabel Marant, Étoile Isabel Marant & Christian Dior – ‘Atomic Blonde’ Berlin Premiere

Still in Berlin, Germany, Charlize Theron continued the promo circuit for ‘Atomic Blonde’ that culminated in the world premiere on Monday (July 17).

Soho House: After her red-hot look the day before, she chilled out a bit for the film’s promotion at Soho House on Sunday (July 16). I loved the relaxed ease of this Isabel Marant Fall 2017 striped top paired with an Étoile Isabel Marant mini skirt that still provided plenty of leggy, sultry appeal. The flashes of red in her lip and nails also added to the simmering, subtle intrigue of the look with Sara Weinstock and Dana Rebecca Designs jewels topping it off.

World Premiere: If Sofia Boutella was channeling ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ for the premiere, then Charlize was boudoir Barbie. Legs-for-days has been her M.O. thus far, and with this Christian Dior bralette and leather skirt she achieved that and then some, but somehow still managed to make even this unorthodox premiere look seem borderline sophisticated with her grace of form. An even brighter coral-red lip further commanded attention.

Rita Ora In Chloe & Emilio Pucci – Elvis Duran Z100 Morning Show & SiriusXM

Rita Ora has been having a love affair with the ’70s, that is, if her latest round of looks are any indication. With a Studio 54 shag-style ’do in tow, she showed up to the Elvis Duran Z100 Morning Show and SiriusXM Studios in New York City on Monday (July 17), but you would have been forgiven if you thought she was on her way to a costume party.

Elvis Duran Z100 Morning Show: The retro vibes were strong in this Chloe Spring 2017 off-the-shoulder top and matching pyjama pants done in a ditzy floral print that had ‘hippie’ written all over it. The matching brown aviator shades and silver Salvatore Ferragamo sandals were the icing on this discotheque cake.

SiriusXM: The ’70s streak continued with this Emilio Pucci Pre-Fall 2017 tracksuit featuring the signature Pucci psychedelic swirl in full play which she styled with Pierre Hardy ‘Skinissimo’ sandals.

#ThrowbackMonday is clearly the new Thursday.

Sofia Boutella In Chanel – ‘Atomic Blonde’ Berlin Premiere

Sofia Boutella attended the ‘Atomic Blonde’ world premiere in Berlin, Germany on Monday (July 17).

Embracing classic modernity, she wore a Chanel Fall 2017 gown with dazzling sequin embellishment and sleek column lines.

Try as I might, I couldn’t fully embrace the ivory silk neck piece that I kept wanting to remove like a scarf. But, it did grow on me over time, as the whole look had something of a ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ charm.

I will give Sofia credit for wearing an updo with that neckline—even if the perky topknot could be a bit contrived for the more sophisticated look.

Nicole Scherzinger In Zeynep Arcay – Scotts Restaurant

Nicole Scherzinger turned heads whilst exiting Scotts restaurant in London earlier this month on Friday (July 7).

With a night off from her ‘X Factor’ auditions, she donned an ensemble from Istanbul-based designer Zeynep Arcay’s Spring 2017 collection.

Nicole can sometimes struggle to find the right footing with looks that are both flattering and fresh, and that appeared to again be the case here.

The crossover pink top dominated the look for an effect that felt far more forced than the lookbook’s languid-luxe attitude.
