Ashley Madekwe In Markarian – Premiere Of Netflix’s ‘The Umbrella Academy’

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon features Ashley Madekwe In Markarian - Premiere Of Netflix's 'The Umbrella Academy'

Ashley Madekwe joined Mary J Blige on the red carpet for the premiere of Netflix’s ‘The Umbrella Academy’ on Tuesday (February 12) in Hollywood, California.

Markarian is a label known for their whimsical pieces and ultra feminine designs.

This silk shantung plaid two-piece Pre-Fall 2019 look may scream summer garden party, but styling wise, Ashley had different ideas.

The CFDA, WWD & Variety Celebrate Runway To Red Carpet Initiative

To celebrate the inaugural launch of the Runway to Red Carpet initiative, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Variety and Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) hosted a star-studded luncheon on Tuesday (February 20) at the Chateau Marmont, which was sponsored by Karma Automotive.

A range of starlets were in attendance. However, if you had just looked at their ensembles, you’d never know they were at the same event—so diverse were their modes of dress.

Olivia Munn: I like the sunny outlook of this Veronica Beard Spring 2018 warm-weather-ready suit set, with the drawstring detailing adding an element of feminine allure. Obviously, the shorts didn’t stand up so well to the creases from sitting.

Lea Michele: Opting for a more romantically feminine offering, Lea wore a Zuhair Murad floral gown with a ruffled peplum. I can imagine this dress looked very pretty in the garden outside.

January Jones: I appreciate the directional, urban-forward mood the actress was setting with this Off-White Resort 2018 look—complete with that slick-back ponytail. However, I know the deconstructed, pinstripe skirt will have many saying it looks as if she wrapped a bolt of men’s shirting material around her waist.

Entertainment Weekly’s Screen Actors Guild Awards Celebration Red Carpet Roundup

The stars came out in full force for Entertainment Weekly’s Screen Actors Guild Awards Celebration on Saturday (January 20).

Crystal Reed: There’s a lot to love about Crystal’s Dion Lee Spring 2018 look, but the pleated skirt steal the show for me. I love the overlay that gives it a dual-color effect.

Tommy Dorfman: I’ve always been wholly on-board with Tommy’s obvious love of fashion and willingness to experiment, but I literally can’t even with this. I feel like the entire thing is just trying too hard, and is completely unflattering.

Sarah Hyland: This velvet and satin asymmetrical Self Portrait Fall 2017 gown is as fun and perky and Sarah herself. And us usual, Sarah’s hair and makeup team knocked it out of the park.

The Art of Elysium presents John Legend’s HEAVEN Gala

As to be expected, there was a rush of stars at the 11th annual edition of The Art of Elysium Presents John Legend’s HEAVEN was held on Saturday (January 6) in Santa Monica, California.

Ashley Madekwe: I was a bit surprised to see Ashley donning the Rodarte Fall 2017 look that Nicole Kidman wore to the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. I will say the proportions of the glittery, ruffled look seemed a bit better suited to Ashley.

Rooney Mara: The actress looks to be continuing 2018 with her favoured colour palette of black and white with this Givenchy Spring 2018 lace-accented, asymmetrical dress.

Vanessa Hudgens: I like the enchanting sweep of this Alberta Ferretti Fall 2017 cape gown styled with an Emm Kuo clutch. What betrays the look a bit is the heavy-handed, rust-hued eye makeup, which is a bit too much in the red colour family.

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic was held on Saturday (October 14) in Pacific Palisades, California, with a number of stars in attendance for the day of sport.

Tracee Ellis Ross: This look brought a big smile to my face, as I was immediately charmed by the Agnes B printed top and mustard-yellow Celine trousers. The star of the show was the Eric Javits hat, though, with Stuart Weitzman ‘Marlon’ shoes completing the typically quirky look. The shoes were funky, to be sure, but it was the Louis Vuitton clutch that I could have done without.

Camilla Belle: This Adeam Resort 2018 asymmetrical frock offered up such a delicately feminine vibe, with her pink lip echoing that spirit. Her block heels ensured there would be no sinking into the grass.

Kate Hudson: I loved the playfulness of this candy-stripe Johanna Ortiz Resort 2018 wide-leg jumpsuit, all tied up with its girlish bow. But, I would have been fearful that Kate would trip on the pants that puddled on the ground. The giant rosebud earrings were such fun as was the Clare V. ‘Petite Alice’ tote.

2017 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party

In advance of the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday, Entertainment Weekly hosted its Pre-Emmy Party on Friday (September 15) in West Hollywood, California.

Sophia Bush: This red Stella McCartney body-skimming dress with car wash slits held potential, but I wish the styling had been more complementary. A tonal red sandal like the Edie Parker clutch would have provided a more streamlined effect but I would have stopped the red at the makeup—red eye shadow is always a tough look to pull off.

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host also went bold with the eye shadow, hers an intense shade of violet. However, her sultry Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2018 floral-embroidered dress commanded enough attention on its own. I love that she didn’t resort to black pumps, but I’m wishing for a sandal here.

Mandy Moore
: With a shiny new play on an LBD, the ‘This Is Us’ actress donned a Sally LaPointe Pre-Fall 2017 sequin dress styled with Sophia Webster shoes and a red Jimmy Choo clutch. The style-forward edge of the turtleneck sweater piece grew on me, although at first, I did want to remove it.

Ashley Madekwe In Jeffrey Dodd – bareMinerals Dinner Party

With her flawless skin, it’s no wonder that bareMinerals partnered with Ashley Madekwe for the launch of their bareMinerals BAREPRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation.

Yesterday (August 17), the ‘Revenge’ actress attended a dinner party in LA to celebrate the launch wearing an eye catching two piece look from Jeffery Dodd’s Resort 2018 collection.

Ashley always steps up to the sartorial mark, but this is remarkable, even by her high standards.

I love how the on-trend pink stripe bolsters the slim silhouette, and how the matchy accessories consisting of ‘Nudists’ sandals and Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch enhances the look further.

When asked why she loves bareMinerals BAREPRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation Ashley said, “I like my skin to look flawless, but I don’t like it to feel caked and the BAREPRO is the perfect mix of that. Even though it is full coverage, you use so little of it— literally half a pump will do your entire face. Even though it’s full coverage, you still see your skin. I used to use a beauty sponge and I don’t anymore. Now that I’ve got this brush, I’m obsessed with it because the bristles are so thick, so it kind of buffs it out in seconds. This (foundation) almost melts into the skin.”

The range comes in 30 shades, Ashley wears BAREPRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation in Sable 21.

Ashley Madekwe In Emilio Pucci – ‘The Last Tycoon’ LA Premiere

One thing you can always rely on, is a breath-taking moment from Ashley Madekwe.

The British actress made her mark on red carpet for last night’s LA premiere of ‘The Last Tycoon’ alongside Lily Collins, Lea Michele and Matt Bomer wearing an Emilio Pucci Fall 2017 on-trend suit.

When I was remarking on how I wished Gwendoline Christie’s Bella Freud suit had tonal buttons, this is what I had in mind, as the overall look is so much chicer without the contrasting details.

Speaking of details the cut is so sharp you could cut your finger on it. And I adore this boxy silhouette, it gives this trend a whole new lease of life.

Mixing metals with her accessories, the look was finished with super curly locks instead of her usual poker straight tresses.

J’Adore from head-to-toe. Methinks this is the best presentation of this trend yet.

Panthere De Cartier Party

There were many stars to watch at the Panthere De Cartier Party in LA on Friday (May 5), which celebrated the relaunch of the Panthere timepiece.

Ashley Madekwe: There was something breathtaking about the fluidity of form in this Halston Heritage ensemble, which was chic minimalism at its finest.

Dakota Johnson: It doesn’t get more timeless than an LBD, especially this ladylike version from the Shaina Mote Spring 2017 collection, sophisticatedly styled with a J.W. Anderson ‘Pierce’ bag, Cartier watch, and Gucci sandals.

Sienna Miller: Also in a minimalist and monochromatic mood, Sienna wore a flowing silk champagne ensemble from The Row styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Marchavekel’ sandals and a Tod’s clutch. With the slip-inspired top and loose pants, some might see elegant PJs, but it was still an effortlessly beautiful look.

Victoria Beckham For Target Launch Event

Victoria Beckham was surrounded by VB-loving beauties at her Victoria Beckham For Target launch event on Saturday (April 1) in LA, where guests showed off the accessibly minded capsule collection in top form.

Victoria Beckham: Slouchy silhouettes have become something of a currently expected staple with VB—as she wears them so well. The calla lily motif in this ensemble added a whimsical, feminine finish yet it couldn’t take away the fact that those trousers were scraping the floor a bit too much.

Kate Mara: Kate’s seafoam-green track jacket and shorts combined sporty appeal with a more precious lacy allure. While the Emm Kuo clutch complemented the look well, I wish her patent camel platforms had been exchanged for a lighter nude sandal.

Ashley Madekwe: Pretty in pink, Ashley couldn’t have been more charming in this sweetly simple dress with a floral-printed collar. I love the way she echoed the light ballet-pink hues in her makeup with a softly pearlescent Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch rounded out the look perfectly.

Ashley Madekwe In Galvan – ‘The Zookeeper’s Wife’ LA Premiere

Ashley Madekwe attended the premiere of ‘The Zookeeper’s Wife’ on Monday (March 27) in Hollywood, California.

We love Ashley for her simple elegance, and that is what she was serving up again here wearing a silver-tone chainmail knit dress from Galvan’s Fall 2015 collection.

The pom pom drop earrings added a fun touch, but I wasn’t as excited about the black pumps.

However, I understand her selection as she wanted to keep the look simple and not turn this into a disco outfit.

A signature Bottega Veneta knot clutch rounded out the look.

Ashley Madekwe In Johanna Ortiz – Vanity Fair Young Hollywood Party

Ashley Madekwe is one of our red carpet favourites, so I love how she brought plenty of flare to the Vanity Fair Young Hollywood party on Tuesday (February 21) in West Hollywood, California.

Johanna Ortiz designs often play with shapes and silhouettes in a bold colour palette with an upbeat attitude, which is manifested in this two-piece Resort 2017 look.

Some might of wanted to dial down the look by opting for just one of the pieces from the lookbook, but together, Ashley present a woman who is not afraid to step outside her comfort-zone and have fun with fashion.
