Penelope Cruz In Balmain – The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Penélope Cruz paid a visit to ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Tuesday (January 16) to discuss her role in ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.’

If you were expecting Versace, you will be surprised to know that the Spanish actress wore a Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 look.

At the LA premiere, she donned Stella McCartney so it will be interesting to see if and when she wears the Italian label.

This embellished jacket might be a lot of look for a daytime show, but she carried it off with the simple black top and jeans.

The bow might not have been necessary given the heavy embellishment, but it plays into the designer’s aesthetic. Plus, it adds a quirky, girlish finish we don’t often get from the French fashion house.

The tall boots added a luxurious touch without competing with the statement topper.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The gents have been making some dapper statements on the red carpet of late.

Bradley Cooper: The actor looked suave in Ermenegildo Zegna Couture and Louboutin shoes at IWC Schaffhausen’s Maison launch of its Jubilee Collection at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) on Tuesday (January 16). The velvet jacket and bow tie are a debonair combination with the blue in the watch adding some subtle colour.

Luke Evans: The actor joined Dakota Fanning at ‘The Alienist’ New York premiere on Tuesday (January 16). The subtle pinstripe in his Polo Ralph Lauren suit played off the pale blue shirt. There is something slightly off with the jacket. Methinks a single breasted style would have suited him better.

James Marsden: Also at IWC Schaffhausen’s Maison launch of its Jubilee Collection, the actor looked dashing in a slim navy suit and Louboutin shoes. The soft weave on the fabric could have come across as messy, but its sharp finish speaks to a master tailor.

Dakota Fanning In Givenchy – ‘The Alienist’ New York Premiere

After stepping out in a languid red slip dress, Dakota Fanning switched gears again, returning to volume at ‘The Alienist’ New York premiere on Tuesday (January 16).

The actress’s asymmetrical Givenchy Spring 2018 dress had a moody romance with the cascade of black ruffles.

Never one to overdo it with accessories, she completed the flowing ensemble with strappy sandals and a flick of eyeliner for a punk touch.

Are you bowled over by this look, or do you wish there was a punchy accessory to liven things up?

Karolina Kurkova In Balmain & Giorgio Armani – IWC Schaffhausen (SIHH) Event

Karolina Kurkova was another lovely lady at IWC Schaffhausen’s Maison launch of its Jubilee Collection at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) on Tuesday (January 16) in Geneva, Switzerland. She joined Adriana Lima and Cate Blanchett.

WC Jubilee Collection Launch: The supermodel looked sophisticated in a Balmain Spring 2018 ensemble. She stayed true to the runway version, wearing the check overall jumpsuit with coordinating shirt. For the designer, it has been conservatively embellished which makes the chain straps and gold accessories pop.

IWC Red Carpet Event: This Giorgio Armani outfit is certainly a sensual take on tuxedo dressing. It still retains a luxurious sophistication from the velvet and slim silhouette. The draped chain detailing has such fluidity and a surprising lightness.

Stella McCartney’s Autumn 2018 Collection Launch

Stella McCartney’s Autumn 2018 collection launch on Tuesday (January 16) in Los Angeles, California was brimming with bold fashion.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: The model looked like a yummy mummy in her one-shouldered knit and vegan leather trousers. The autumnal shades and materials are luxurious, and the gold accessories only heightened the feel. That’s why it’s a shame about the semi-sheer top.

Kate Bosworth: I’m sure there will be many people who will want to rip this macramé strap off. It makes me feel a bit better that it’s part of a bag, but coupled with the short-sleeved blazer, there’s a touristy vibe I find difficult to shake off. I’m further let down by the rumpled trousers. Not her best.

Katy Perry: The singer went for extreme volume in an asymmetrical red dress. I’m afraid her colourful makeup and accessories only enhance the cartoonish feel of the look — and not in the best way. Now we know why Annabelle Wallis belted the gown at The 2017 Fashion Awards.

Cate Blanchett In Preen – IWC Schaffhausen (SIHH) Event

Cate Blanchett was one of the many ambassadors on hand to celebrate IWC Schaffhausen’s Maison launch of its Jubilee Collection at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) on Tuesday (January 16) in Geneva, Switzerland.

The actress dazzled in a Preen Pre-Fall 2018 featuring a hitched hemline layered with black lace to give the look a typically off-kilter twist.

Strappy sandals gave way for over-the-knee boots to create the perfect combination of glam and comfort.
