2018 Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards

2018 Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards 4 copy

Here is a roundup from the 2018 Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards held at Claridge’s Hotel on Tuesday (October 30) in London.

Ellie Bamber: Was this a case of third time’s the charm, when this Chanel Pre-Fall 2018 look has already been successfully mastered by Keira Knightley and Tilda Swinton, or three strikes and your out?

Adwoa Aboah: Pop art was a way to rebel against the art establishment, just as Mary Katrantzou’s prints rebel against mundane colour combinations. You may not love the shape of this Spring 2019 dress, but you have to admire the artistry, and the additional green clutch and blue Louboutins Adwoa brought to this look.

Front Row @ Dior Cruise 2019

There were stars aplenty at the front row of the Dior Cruise 2019 show in Chantilly, France on Friday (May 25).

Olivia Cooke: The ‘Ready Player One’ actress’s Dior white embroidered blouse with white wool and silk crepe shorts and skirt had a unified finish but plenty of interesting detail. From this position, the effect of the layered bottoms is almost lost. It would have been better if there was a greater separation of the pieces or if there was only one. Dior shoes and a Dior ‘Pochette’ printed clutch contrasted the snowy hues.

Paris Jackson The model played straight into a bohemian aesthetic in a Dior multicolor patchwork dress which was accessorized with a Dior ‘Defile Summer’ bag, plenty of necklaces and strappy sandals. Given the ornate detail of the dress, I’m sure some would have favored a cleaner look, but it feels true to who she is.

‘Sink Or Swim (Le Grand Bain)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

There were so many more Cannes lovelies who were out in force for the ‘Sink Or Swim (Le Grand Bain)’ Cannes Film Festival premiere on Sunday (May 13).

Izabel Goulart: Some of you may be thinking what happened to the front of this signature embellished Zuhair Murad Spring 2018 Haute Couture bodysuit-gown fusion. But, the model has legs for days and she showed them off in top form with this enchanting moment that measured its sexiness by a moment of fairytale allure in the long embellished train. Naturally, Chopard jewels were a perfect finish.

Anja Rubik: As vibrant as this Saint Laurent Fall 2018 floral mini was, it seemed better suited to a daytime photocall than a red carpet premiere.

V&A Fashioned from Nature VIP Preview

The V&A Fashioned from Nature VIP Preview on Wednesday (April 18) in London, England saw a few attendees pay tribute to the naturalistic theme.

Natalie Imbruglia: Turning heads with a captivating pattern and a voluminous silhouette, the Australian singer wore Bora Aksu Spring 2018. The muted blue prevents the heart pattern from become twee. Presumably, she added the jacket for a similar reason, but I would have liked to see the ensemble without it. The Bottega Veneta clutch was more successful.

Arizona Muse: The model’s white Stella McCartney outfit had a subtle flapper sentiment with the short silhouette, long necklace and her sculpted waves. The white and blue combination has such a refreshing springtime air but I wish the necklace was shortened so it wouldn’t compete with the delicate peplum.

Ellise Chappell: The ‘Poldark’ actress embraced the natural theme with a whimsical dress from Alice Archer. The frills, sheer polka dot fabric and watercolour floral print are brimming with romance. The metallic shoes added more ethereal beauty.

16th Sidaction

There was a bounty of beauties at the 16th Sidaction event, which is part of the Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture Spring Summer 2018 season, on Thursday (January 25) in Paris, France.

Melanie Thierry: I did a double take when I saw the actress as her blonde hair has been dyed a striking ginger shade. It was offset with the jeweled embellishment on her Miu Miu outfit. The beige coat could be deemed too casual by some, but it had an insouciant allure.

Isabelle Huppert: The ‘Elle’ actress proved the beauty of simplicity in an Azzaro Fall 2017 Couture gown. The diagonal detailing had a captivating wrap-around event that showcased her incredible figure.

Elodie Bouchez: Skinny pants plus a mannish blazer is a favourite silhouette of many. She took her Saint Laurent separates further adding a shimmering shirt and supersized earrings. It could have had 80s power suit connotations, but the dark colour palette and tailoring made it feel au courant.

Front Row @ Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Couture

The dreamy Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Couture show was held on Monday (January 22) during Paris Fashion Week, with a trio of front-row femmes in the house to witness all the confections.

Kylie Minogue: The beautiful blush tone of this silky, asymmetrical gown conveyed a softly romantic quality on Kylie. A darker sandal to match her nail lacquer would have escalated the dramatic effect even more.

Natalia Vodianova: Of course, I was immediately drawn to this electric-blue number, but what heightened my affection were the little details like the buttons down the side, the dynamic patterning, and the swishy, car wash paneling. Modern sophistication at its finest.

Arizona Muse: A pair of red pumps enlivened this girly, embellished black frock. I think a similar bold crimson shade would have been equally fitting for her lip to tie the look together.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture

A couple of days after the Dior Homme show, more Dior-clad darlings descended on the Rodin Museum for the fashion house’s runway show, the first big one of Paris haute couture week on Monday (January 22).

Emily Blunt: Sleekly elegant styling was the only way to go for this ornately printed Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2018 frock, and Emily complied.

Annabelle Wallis: Statement shirts continue to be a relevant trend, and Annabelle’s fit the bill. I like how she styled it with the graphic jacket (which coincidentally reflected the show’s checquerboard set), high-waist, cropped trousers, and hat for a slice of Parisian rebel-chic.

Willow Smith: Perhaps taking a cue from the surrealist mood of the show in her white eye makeup, Willow offered a more girly perspective than we would expect from her urban-cool style in this sheer tulle gown juxtaposed with a tuxedo vest.
