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.

Emma Roberts: The lavender shade of this tiered dress adds to its feminine, youthful feel. It would have looked pretty styled with delicate sandals, but the oxblood accessories made the ensemble even more dynamic.

Kiernan Shipka: The former ‘Mad Men’ actress continues to prove why she is a fashion darling. The cutesy feel of the printed dress is toughened up with the platform loafers and the chain-strap black bag.

Paris Jackson: The model showed a different side with this striped sweater dress. She could have added her bohemian flair with lots of accessories. Instead, she made a graphic statement with an oversized bum bag and two-tone platform booties.

Storm Reid: The young actress shows why she is one to watch with this blouse and overall combination. The contrasting red trim on the collar and two-tone shoes had a fun, youthful spirit with the embellished bag adding joyful shine. If I were to nitpick, I would like to see the pants hemmed.

Sofia Boutella: The actress-dancer also selected easy separates. The pale star-printed cardigan dressed down the striped black jumpsuit while adding a cheerful touch. I could have seen this paired with one of the designer’s jackets, but I was pleased she went in a different direction.

Kate Hudson: The actress has been in an experimental mood since shaving her locks. The ruffled white blouse added to the prim sweetness of the muted pink jacket and gathered skirt. Some might deem this too twee, but I think she gets away with it as the pastel tones do wonders for her skin tone.

Ana de Armas: Ruffled necklines were featured on a few outfits with the Cuban actress making the loudest statement of them all with her graphic green dress. I was so pleased it had a gathered waist otherwise the sci-fi-like print would have overwhelmed her. The fluorescent pink trainers could be a sticking point, but the way they play off the green is striking. She also tied in the pink with her lip colour.

Kate Mara: The actress showed off some of Stella’s signatures in this two-button dress which demonstrated the design’s tailoring skills and minimalist ease. The patent platform loafers were another classic detail. It might be very on brand, but it still feels authentic to her personal style.

Miranda Kerr: The expectant model was a beauty in black with the radiating detail on the mini dress being framed by the coat draped over her shoulders. Her red lipstick and simple updo completed the effortlessly sophisticated feel.

    Rosie Hungtington-Whiteley looks phenomenal, as per usual.

    You missed Christina Aguilera. I really liked her look. Big fan of Paris Jackson’s also, she pulls off and makes that fanny pack look cool, lol. There’s such a great vibe to her, she is one to watch.

    (Mimicking Nene Leakes’ voice)Katy,girl why are you wearing a tent honey?

  4. Lee Ann January 18, 2018 at 3:36 pm #

    Wow it takes a lot of effort to make Rosie and Kate look bad since they woul look good in a sack but Stella succeeded.

    The only one I like her is Sofia…everyone else is a mess!! Stella Is a terrible designer…and it’s not just the designs, it’s the colours, the fit, the make…it’s all so bad!

    What did I just see???

    This is proof that Stella only became a successful “designer” because of nepotism and her famous father’s connections.

    It was hard to reach the bottom of the page. Just horridness after horridness.

    Is there a possibility that Katy Perry is heavily pregnant? I can picture this… thing worn only in two cases; if the wearer is preggers with at least twins or if it’s worn by a buxom opera singer who has a bad stuck-in-the-80s stylist.

    Anyway, out of those looks Sofia Boutella’s is my favourite, though the pants are a bit too long.

    Yet more proof that Stella McCartney isn’t a talented designer. Goodness, this is a bad batch of awful clothing that costs a fortune.

    I’ve never been so universally unimpressed by one of these round up posts. Miranda and Rosie are passable but certainly no contenders for bdotw among this lot

  12. james January 17, 2018 at 6:32 pm #

    Unless Katy Perry is hugely pregnant, she has absolutely no excuses to be wearing that tent of a dress. Yuck! I like Storm, Miranda and that is about it.

  13. Aocc January 17, 2018 at 6:00 pm #

    Rosie, Storm and Ana 😀

    I really enjoyed Kate Maras look. However, it looks more like street style rather than red carpet.

  15. Leandra January 17, 2018 at 4:42 pm #

    Hard to digest such amount of heinousness at just one take.

    A storm of pretty dreadful looks, but here are two great things: the detail on Miranda Kerr’s dress, and the return of Emma Roberts’ normal hair.

  17. meme January 17, 2018 at 3:32 pm #

    Wow…these are beyond awful. Stella designs super fug clothing. That schmata on Katy Perry is the worst of the bunch

  18. Pheephee January 17, 2018 at 3:02 pm #

    Wow those are some bad messy looks.

    The only one I really like here is Miranda. Simple but nice.
    The rest have awful styling and/or awful outfits on.

    If You Have Nothing Nice To Say, Don’t Say Anything At All :/

    Rosie and Miranda get a pass.

    The others are meh to eugh.

    Not a fan of Stella either.

  21. Vizual Ninja January 17, 2018 at 2:38 pm #

    Miranda, Sofia and Rosie are the ones I like here

  22. Lashae January 17, 2018 at 2:37 pm #

    OMG that dress on Katy makes her looks huge, she looks pregnant and I don’t think that was the look she was going for

    Everyone else looks go from ‘meh to ‘okay’

  23. TeaAtTwo January 17, 2018 at 2:35 pm #

    This reminds me why I’m not really a fan of Stella McCartney as a designer.
