Gucci Fall 2017 Front Row

The Gucci show was held on Wednesday (February 22) during Milan Fashion Week, where the front row featured three very distinct looks, inspired by the stars who wore them.

Florence Welch: Donning a very ‘Florence’ look, the songstress was at her bohemian best in this multi-printed, floral Gucci gown, styled with embellished booties and rows of rings to further drive home her signature brand of free-spirited romance.

Li Yuchun: Free-spirited went in another direction with this quirky studded ensemble that introduced both feline prowess and feathered birdies to the mix. With the funky shades, it was a look made for Li’s unique pop personality and she had no problem rocking it out.

Salma Hayek: I loved the unabashed prettiness of this Gucci floral-embroidered frock with its micro-pearl scoop neck and velvet bow. It was a darling look for the actress that still maintained a sophisticated edge despite its girly nature. The platform shoes were rather intense, but I’ll choose to ignore them.

Allison Williams In Erdem – Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Showing off her new blonde ambition, Allison Williams stopped by the ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ on Tuesday (February 21) in New York City.

Blondes may have more fun, but you wouldn’t exactly know it by her ensemble.

While the periwinkle-blue hue of the Erdem Resort 2017 dress was lovely enough, everything else about the look—from the all-over lace, to the updo and the earrings—was rather aging to the beautiful, young actress.

And those harshly out-of-place black pumps didn’t help matters at all.

There are ways to do freshly sophisticated without venturing so far into overly mature territory. I cannot wait to see her have more fun with those platinum locks.

2017 BRIT Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The 2017 BRIT Awards certainly brought no shortage of head-turning looks on Wednesday (February 22) in London, and here are a few more of them.

Jesy Nelson: The Little Mix girls were present and accounted for, with the chart-topping British group bringing their distinct stylistic flair to the event—starting with Jesy who played tough-girl-meets-seductress in this leather dress and long locks.

Leigh-Anne Pinnock: If this dress were a song, it would be a mashup between the ’80s and the ’90s, with a punk-rock meets grunge beat. That is to say there was a lot going on in this Namilia Spring 2017 denim, cone-bra gown so I’m glad she kept the styling sleek with her updo and minimal jewels.

Perrie Edwards: She also had a throwback moment, putting the cone bra to work for her, excepts hers was manifested in a black patent corset bodice with an illusion neckline. The feathery mullet skirt added a note of softness while fully showing off her legs.

Jade Thirlwall: Legs, or should we say leg, also dominated Jade’s Rare London white slip gown that looked as if it could have slipped right into a wardrobe malfunction at any moment. Aside from the dangerously gaping dress, it was too long and too creased—and the black gloves further lessened any of my tolerance for it.

Did any of these looks pass the test for you?

Vanity Fair Young Hollywood Party Red Carpet Roundup

A number of additional starlets attended the Vanity Fair Young Hollywood party on Tuesday (February 21) in West Hollywood, California, where the colour black was clearly trending among a few of them.

Victoria Justice: She wore her little black dress dolled up with lace in this Vatanika Spring 2017 number that brought a girly-meets-goth tone to the party.

Shay Mitchell: While this sexy twist on menswear is nothing we haven’t seen before, Shay wore the satiny Elizabeth and James Spring 2017 suit in top form with her sleek locks and  eye-catching, statement earrings adding a striking finish to the look.

Sofia Carson: Her LBD—long black dress—was a shimmering Alex Perry design. The full skirt brought a youthfully feminine flourish to the rectangular interpretation of an illusion plunge neckline.

Alesha Dixon In Moschino – 2017 BRIT Awards

Alesha Dixon also attended the 2017 Brit Awards on Wednesday (February 22) in London, England.

The singer and judge wore this fun yet elegant Moschino dress, and was definitely one of my best dressed of the night.

The colourful bodice is just enough pop, the statement cummerbund is super chic, and the long skirt – with up-to-there slit – left Alesha looking statuesque. There is even a pocket, for added cool factor.

Alesha got everything right here, including the high bun, which only accentuated the amazingness of this strapless dress.

Did you love her look too?

Natalia Vodianova In Givenchy Couture – 2017 BRIT Awards

Natalia Vodianova stunned on the red carpet at the 2017 Brit Awards on Wednesday (February 22) in London, England.

The Russian model looked statuesque and gorgeous in this Givenchy Couture gown, and bought all the glamour needed to the Brit Awards.

Every Givenchy Couture collection is full with pieces that include exquisite details and fabrication, and this one is no exception. 3D embroidery, feathers and a lace body suit underneath all come together in this complicated, visually stunning confection.

If I’m nitpicking, the spray of feathers at the neckline might be a little much, but that doesn’t take away from this stunning look.

Nicole Scherzinger In Nicolas Jebran – 2017 BRIT Awards

You’ve got to love Nicole Scherzinger’s constant efforts to look fierce, wherever she’s going.

Here, attending the 2017 Brit Awards on Wednesday (February 22) in London, England, the singer and judge chose to wear this full look from the Nicolas Jebran Fall 2017 collection.

It’s full on, but somehow works. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Nicole wear a jacket-dress, it’s one sexy look for the diva, and this woven red number is certainly one of her best.

This dress would be transformed again if worn with a strappy sandal or court shoe.

And trust Nicole to bring crimped hair back! The whole look is a big nod to the 80s.

Rita Ora In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2017 BRIT Awards

Rita Ora was also in attendance at the 2017 Brit Awards on Wednesday (February 22) in London, England.

The singer likes to make a statement on the red carpet, and while I like the top of this Alexandre Vauthier Couture dress, I’m not keen on the sheer bottom, or the jacket over the top.

On Bella Hadid, the jacket works. But in ‘real life’, it doesn’t really translate as well.

Rihanna has been spotted in the jacket on stage too, teamed with matching trousers and boots, which looked great.

With slick back hair the look was complete with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Do you think a fully embellished version of this dress might have made more of an impact?
