Mandy Moore In Max Mara & Monse – Entertainment Weekly & People New York Upfronts & 2018 The Paley Honors

Mandy Moore showed some leg at the Entertainment Weekly & People New York Upfronts on Monday (May 14) in New York and at the 2018 The Paley Honors on Tuesday (May 15).

Entertainment Weekly & People New York Upfronts: The ‘This Is Us’ actress demonstrated the seductive side of tailoring in Max Mara with Stuart Weitzman shoes. The blazer dress revealed tanned pins and chest, juxtaposing the boxier fit of the piece. Minimal styling presented a crisp finish.

2018 The Paley Honors: This time, the asymmetrical hemline of her Monse dress provided the allure. It too was all about balance as the swirling skirt brought a flirtier finish to the more modest top. A Tyler Ellis bag and Casadei shoes enlivened the inky style. Carrying a clutch would have had more impact as the bag is sometimes lost, like the cutout back.

Portia de Rossi In Akris & L’Agence – The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Portia de Rossi stopped by ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Wednesday (May 16) to talk about her decision to quit acting and start her own publication and art curation company.

For the occasion, Ellen’s wife looked very much the stylish businesswoman in an Akris Resort 2018 suit. The L’Agence ‘Jane’ tank kept the finish sophisticated rather than dowdy and enhanced the clean lines of the separates.

Many have recently embraced sleek suiting and the ensemble captures its appeal with the sharp mix of fabrics and colours.

I’m sure many will be pleased to see she shortened the trousers so they weren’t as long as the lookbook version.

Balmain Dresses Stars Of ‘My Profession Is Not Black’ @ Cannes Film Festival

Authors of the book “Noire N’est Pas Mon Métier” (My Profession Is Not Black) attended the documentary ‘s premiere during Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday (May 16).

This doc shows what 16 actresses, including its director Aïssa Maïga, have faced as women of colour working in France’s film industry, from sexism to racism.

This is the second moment of solidarity we have seen at this festival following the protested the festival’s lack of female representation just days before
Olivier Rousteing, the first black head designer of Balmain, was honoured to dress all the women in custom pieces from his Fall 2018 collection.

In an interview with Vogue before the premiere, Olivier said, “I was adopted by a white family. People used to ask my parents how they could adopt a black kid and they would call me a bastard to my face, so I’ve seen racism; I’ve experienced it,” going on to explain that he not only experienced racism as a child but later in his career in fashion, too. He went on to say, “Fashion is all about being modern, but sometimes, it’s not so avant-garde. I think if I were white, some of my design choices might have been taken in a different way. It’s easy for the industry to judge, and some of my choices, let’s say, would have been judged in a different way.”

The designs worn by each actress were all different as he wanted to portray that “being sexy and being glamorous is not for one kind of body type or personality. All of these women are different and some wanted to be very sexy and others wanted to be more covered up. It was about what they wanted and all I asked of them was, ‘What is the gown of your dreams?’”

What a beautiful story, man and group of women.

We salute them all.

‘Burning (Beoning)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

The second Wednesday at Cannes Film Festival is always one of the quietest days as celebs gear up for tonight’s amfAR Gala, but there were a few models who turn out for the ‘Burning (Beoning)’ premiere last night (May 16).

Toni Garrn: The model looked breath-taking wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2018 gown. Had it not been for the required Cannes bling – courtesy of Messika – I think that bodice would’ve been considered detail enough.

Get The Look: Rita Ora’s Poppy Bronzed Met Gala Beauty Look

Rita Ora dazzled in a dramatic adorned Prada noir gown at this Monday’s Met Gala, though it was the poppy embellished design of the gown which served asthe inspiration for her beauty look.

Makeup artist Kathy Jeung wanted the makeup to complement her ensemble and look just as bright with bold tones like fuchsia and bronze with holographic finishes.

The final makeup look was structured and brightly colored with a soft romantic appearance. Using Pat McGrath Labs versatile collection, here’s how she created this look:

SKIN: Prior to makeup, Kathy really wanted to treat Rita’s skin, providing it with amply moisture and ensure a radiant and youthful base. She used an array of Valmont skincare products to prep Rita’s skin. To exfoliate the skin, Kathy used the Valmont Clarifying pack, she then masked the skin with the Valmont Energy Prime Renewing Pack, to de-stress the skin and inject some radiance while ridding any signs of fatigue. She moisturized the delicate under eye and lip area with Valmont Prime Contour. For an extra boost to the skin, Kathy also used the ultimate skincare product, Biologique Lotion P50 1970.

CONTOUR/HIGHLIGHT: Once the skin was prepped, primed and set, Kathy contoured and highlighted her flawless complexion. To define her cheeks, Kathy blended ‘Gold Rush & Gilt Trip’ (bronze shades) from the Pat McGrath Labs MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Ambition Palette onto the hollows of Rita’s cheeks. For stunning warmth and a bronze finish, Kathy used the same shades and dusted it along the temples, along the hairline and under the chin. Once the skin was bronzed, Kathy added lustrous radiance along Rita’s cheekbones using the MOTHERSHIP III: Subversive Eye Palette. To complement the stunning shades on Rita’s dress, she used the ‘VR Pink’ shade to the tops of Rita’s cheekbones, softly blending and diffusing outwards.

EYES: For that glamorous almost opalescent bronze smoky eye, Kathy used the Pat McGrath Labs MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Ambition Palette. Blending all the bronze shades from the palette helped her created a subtle and elegant colored eye look. For an eye-opening touch, she applied ‘SkinshowFever’ from the MOTHERSHIP III: Subversive Eye Palette in the inner corner or her eyes (tear ducts). To further enhance the eye makeup and create a more uniform look, Kathy used her finger and applied ‘VR Pink’, the same product used to highlight the upper cheekbones, onto the center of her eyelids. Finally, to define the romantic bronzed eye makeup, Kathy lined Rita’s eyes with Pat McGrath Permagel Ultra Glide Eye Pencil in Blitz Brown.

LIPS: To create that poppy fuchsia lip, Kathy opted to use a lasting matte product. She evenly applied Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color in Heartbeatto Rita’s full lips.

Celina Jade @ 2018 Cannes Film Festival

Celina Jade has been making the rounds at the Cannes Film Festival, with three red carpets to her name thus far.

‘Everybody Knows (Todos Lo Saben)’ Premiere: On the opening day of Cannes on Tuesday (May 8), Celina wore a designer I’m always intrigued to see on the red carpet with this Stephane Rolland Haute Couture gown. Despite the long train, I’ll have to admit that this particular moment didn’t have the sculptural extravagance and wow factor I had my hopes set on. The platform shoes didn’t really help matters.
