Variety’s Power Of Women

Posted by Rachel Watkins

Variety’s Power Of Women event brought together philanthropic femmes for an exclusive luncheon in Beverly Hills, California on Friday (October 13).

Octavia Spencer: Celebrated at the event for her work with City Year, Octavia gave her favoured designer Tadashi Shoji the afternoon off, instead donning a custom-made Laura Basci ensemble. I love how she brought a touch of the wild to the business-chic side of the dress with her leopard accessories.

Ashley Tisdale: With a fun and flirty outlook, Ashley wore a CMEO Collective number, to which the black pumps didn’t exactly reflect the youthful vibe. I would have probably skipped the diamond chokers, too.

Nikki Reed: The new mom kept her frilly, feminine look as meaningful as possible by wearing an eco-friendly dress by Amur. An Edie Parker clutch, John Hardy jewels, and Rupert Sanderson shoes rounded out the look.

Priyanka Chopra: The actress accepted an award for her work as UNICEF ambassador in a Michael Kors Resort 2018 dress that I loved for its punchy, black-and-white floral motif that was just as statement-making as any colourful palette could be. Dauphin jewels and Christian Louboutin ‘Aketata’ sandals completed her look.

Emmanuelle Chriqui: Also going for a black-and-white look, Emmanuelle opted for slouchy stripes in her Alice + Olivia trousers and camisole. You may remember Victoria Justice also wore these bold pants.

Jaime King: Even though the Fendi Resort 2018 lookbook showcased this lemony, textural dress with the black scarf, all I could think about was removing it.

Constance Zimmer: I liked the feminine asymmetry of this navy Lavish Alice Fall 2017 jumpsuit. But it was lacking in the accessories department, as both the clutch and the tan shoes translated as a bit clunky with the look.

Viola Davis: The intense coral hue of this Giorgio Armani suit was striking on Viola, but I kept wondering if it was too much of a good thing with the high-neck, matching blouse underneath. A slightly lower-cut camisole would have provided a beautiful neckline.  Rose gold Stella Luna ‘Indispensable’ pumps completed her look. 

Michelle Pfeiffer: There was something intriguing about Michelle’s Akris Fall 2017 look with its sheer mesh and super-long, thumbhole sleeves. But, it seemed an odd choice for the luncheon event—and perhaps better suited to a more dramatic nighttime affair.
