Bee Shaffer In Valentino Couture & Anna Wintour In Chanel Couture – 2018 Met Gala

Not to be missed were Anna Wintour and daughter Bee Shaffer at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday night (May 7) in New York City.

Bee Shaffer: She was a breathtaking vision in Valentino Spring 2018 Couture. Between the designer’s signature colour and the oversized scalloped hem, it oozed romance. The asymmetrical neckline ruffle tied in a draping bow added more magic. Not forgetting about the theme, the colour and clutch nodded to it.

Anna Wintour: As co-host, the editor was sure to embrace the theme in a diaphanous Chanel Spring 2018 Couture dress. Some might be surprised to see she opted for a modified style rather than a totally custom piece. The dress already had the feel of the theme but she further enhanced it with the addition of the short sleeves, by extending the skirt and finishing with the rosary. It was graceful and elegant.

International Center Of Photography’s 2018 Infinity Awards

A bevvy of beauties were in attendance at the International Center Of Photography’s 2018 Infinity Awards on Monday (April 9) in New York City.

Hailey Baldwin: The model normally favors fashion-forward, body-conscious styles, but showed a softer side in a Jason Wu Fall 2018 ensemble. The punchy dress still had a flirty finish with the cutout waist revealing a bit of stomach.

Ashley Graham: The beauty showed off her shape in a ruched Veronica Beard Biba dress. The va-va-voom silhouette hugged every curve. The ruffled detail added to the flirty finish while bringing some soft texture. Brian Atwood sandals completed her look.

London Evening Standard Theatre Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Many more stars were in attendance at the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards were held on Sunday (December 3) in London, England, where all modes of elegance reigned supreme.

Annabelle Wallis: She was the very picture of modern glamour in this Stella McCartney black lace gown. I love how the perfect plunge neckline and semi-sheer, layered effect gave this dress a sultry yet sophisticated finish—juxtaposed with the classic elegance of old-Hollywood waves and a red lip.

Ophelia Lovibond: Not content to let her look go fully the way of monochromatic minimalism, Olivia enlivened this Emporio Armani Fall 2017 halter dress with a bright-pink clutch. It was unexpected, but gave the look its own unique flair.

Bee Shaffer In Alexander McQueen & Anna Wintour In Maison Margiela – 2017 Tony Awards

The 2017 Tony Awards took place on Sunday (June 11) in New York City, and everybody’s favourite mother and daughter duo were in attendance. Bee Shaffer and Anna Wintour both stunned in their respective gowns.

Bee Shaffer: Taken from the Fall 2017 Alexander McQueen Collection Bee’s dress is a riot of colour and texture. The hanging ribbons resemble tassels and give the look a grounded, effortless feel. The patchwork design feels traditional and highlights the incredible workmanship that went into the gown. I love Bee’s Irene Neuwirth jewels which mirror the cascading tassels and ribbons. The red lip and updo is the polished element this look needs to finish it perfectly.

Anna Wintour: There are some who may feel this look is a bit dated, but I love it. Classic and elegant, fashion’s matriarch wears an Anna’s Maison Margiela Spring 2017 Couture gown. Whilst the runway styling is more exciting and shows this dress to its full potential, next to Bee in her busy dress Anna looks perfectly poised. Some gold jewellery and the addition of the original runway waist-tie could have helped to finish this look.

2017 CFDA Fashion Awards Red Carpet Roundup

A number of stars put their best fashionable foot forwards on Monday (June 5) at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards red carpet.

Jamie Alexander: I love the armour-like details on this Marc Bouwer dress, particularly the gorgeous sleeves. Jamie’s up-do looks suitably fierce, as are the beautiful Jennifer Meyer earrings, which drop like swords. The Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and gold clutch are suitably subtle too.

Meg Ryan: Understated yet opulent Meg’s Christian Siriano gown flowed perfectly. As effortless as this look was it risked being a tad vanilla. Monique Péan jewels did little to save the look.

Dame Anna Wintour In Chanel Couture – Investitures Ceremony

Queen Elizabeth II finally gave Anna Wintour something to smile about as the Vogue editor-in-chief was honoured as Dame Commander in recognition of her services to fashion and journalism at an Investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace today (May 5) in London.

Anna, or should I say, Dame Anna Wintour wore Chanel for the special occasion donning a pleated pink bouclé coat dress from the Spring 2017 Couture collection, accented with a silver belt and, new shoes.

I’m surprised she didn’t opt for Burberry for such an occasion as fellow Brits Adele in Stella McCartney, Katherine Jenkins in Preen, Andy Murray in Burberry, and Kate Winslet in Alexander McQueen, and even honorary Brit Natalie Massenet (who wore Ralph & Russo Couture), usually go British for this specially occasion.
