Araya A. Hargate In Ralph & Russo Couture & Giambattista Valli Couture – 2017 Shanghai International Film Festival

Araya A. Hargate amazed us at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival for her ultimate command of head-turning maternity style. At the 2017 Shanghai International Film Festival over the weekend (July 17 and 18), she kept her mama-to-be style statements going strong.

First up, she offered up a purely feminine and romantic stance with this petal-pink organza robe gown from the Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture collection. Long waves cascading around her shoulders played right into the dreamy boudoir mood. A Jaeger-LeCoultre watch paid homage to the official watch of the festival.

Laura Haddock In Emilia Wickstead – ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ London Premiere

Joining Isabela Moner at the ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ London premiere on Sunday (June 18), Laura Haddock took a delightfully chic perspective with her monochromatic, blush gown.

The Emilia Wickstead Resort 2018 gown was minimal in design, thus proving that sometimes no embellishment or bells and whistles are needed for that sway of magical charm—just a beautifully feminine hue and a pristinely sweeping silhouette.

A sleek bun, wrapped in pink, continued the pretty-in-pastel mood.

Because of the cut or the colour—or both—I was reminded of Gwyneth Paltrow’s pink Ralph Lauren gown from the 1999 Oscars. Yet, Laura’s maintained a freshly modern aura that provided a spirited new perspective.

Isabela Moner In Yanina Couture – ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ London Premiere

The promo tour for the ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ continued in London, with Isabela Moner in attendance at the premiere on Sunday (June 18).

Her China premiere look may have been cheekily on theme, but here her transformation for the evening was into that of a partial peacock with this Yanina Fall 2016 Couture gown that was likewise tufted in feathered plumes—as any good bird dress should be.

Execution-wise, the illusion neckline left just a bit to be desired as did the visible lining underneath; it would have done better in a similar blue-gray colour.

Whimsical though it was, it achieved said effect in a more dated, ice-dancing costume mood. Would you agree?

Marion Cotillard In Chloé – 31st Cabourg Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Marion Cotillard opted for an understated vision of glamour at the closing ceremony of the 31st Cabourg Film Festival on Saturday (June 17) in Cabourg, France.

In what continues as her more experimental, post-Dior phase, the actress wore a Chloé Resort 2018 peplum dress emboldened by a flash of metal throughout.

Attempting to imbue further edge into the frock’s more conservative shape, she styled a half side braid into her locks.

Did her latest look shine for you, or fall flat?

Rihanna In Christian Dior – ‘Young Fashion Designer’: LVMH Prize 2017 Edition

Rihanna was at the ‘Young Fashion Designer’: LVMH Prize 2017 Edition to announce the winner on Friday (June 16) in Paris.

Some may liken this white eyelet Christian Dior Resort 2018 design to a mere sundress.

But, in the hands of Rihanna, she exchanged its western influence and made it more of a look fitting of a fashion occasion with her tilted bolero, Chopard jewels, and black pointy stilettos.

At first, I called for a belt in this look that combined a feminine softness with that Rihanna edge. But, she used the plunge and slit to make the silhouette sultry, thus  lessening the need for a defined waistline.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – Trooping The Colour 2017

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was positively beaming at the Trooping The Colour 2017 parade on Saturday (June 17) in London alongside Prince William, Duke of Cambridge with the adorable Princess Charlotte and Prince George close at hand.

Her colour mantra for the day clearly took cues from pretty in pink, as she relied on favoured design house of Alexander McQueen for this sweet, gathered and pleated dress.

Together, with a matching Jane Taylor fascinator, this was right in the proper, sophisticated vein of Catherine’s style.

It was her radiant smile that sold the look, as one cannot deny the charm factor here.
