Guggenheim International Gala

Guggenheim International Gala

The princess mood continued at the Guggenheim International Gala on Thursday (November 15) in New York City with celebrities joining Gwyneth Paltrow.

Jorja Smith: The singer wore a Dior Haute Couture pink sunray-pleated tulle ball gown with Dior shoes and Dior Fine Jewelry. The nipped waist and low neck balance the floaty skirt and the straps merge at the back in a tied-up design. A sleeker hairstyle, or this one brushed off her shoulders, would have showcased the details better.

Jaime King: Proving that there is more than one version of tie-dye, the actress donned a Dior Spring-Summer 2019 patterned silk dress with Dior black patent leather J’adior slingback shoes, a Dior clutch, Dior Fine Jewelry and occasionally a black wool hooded cape. The frock was a bohemian beauty and it had enough formality for the event.

Karlie Kloss: The model’s dusty pink Dior Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2019 organza ball gown will draw comparisons to Jorja’s but the vaporous sleeves and millefeuille-pleated skirt present a different mood. She toned down the sultriness with a bandeau top underneath the bodice.

2018 Guggenheim International Gala Pre-Party

2018 Guggenheim International Gala Pre-Party,

There were nearly too many Christian Dior-clad darlings to count at the Guggenheim International Gala Pre-Party, made possible by Dior, at the Guggenheim Museum on Wednesday (November 14) in New York City.

Jaime King: This may have been a Dior Spring 2019 ensemble, but it also showcased the best of winter white. I love the relaxed, slightly outsized proportions of the sweater in partnership with the tonal, dimensional floral embroidery of the skirt, which made this such a modern, poetic interpretation of classic femininity. She completed the look with nude, ankle-wrap wedges and a Dior Resort 2019 embroidered saddle bag, which was designed to stand out.

Olivia Palermo: I’d almost call this Dior Resort 2019 look minimalistic by Olivia’s standards, as it is worn without the addition of a bold statement accessory or two. However, the look was made to stand alone with the sharp structure of the jacket and the richly sleek edge of the pleated, leather skirt.

Jorja Smith: Va-va-voom is what Jorja was giving us in this red tulle corset dress.

Jaime King In Schiaparelli Haute Couture – ‘SOLO: A Star Wars Story’ LA Premiere

Like Sofia Vergara, Jaime King was clad in a tiered ensemble at the ‘SOLO: A Star Wars Story’ LA premiere on Thursday (May 10).

She fully embraced the whimsical nature of Schiaparelli Haute Couture in a Fall 2017 look that had an interesting tactile quality despite the gossamer fabrics.

The sheer bodice will be a big talking point but I foresee the gloves as being the thing that either kills the look or elevates it.

I don’t mind them on the runway, but would have liked to see her take the dress in a different direction. Removing the gloves would have created a more bohemian mood.

The detail that irks me more is the bottom black tier as it’s too long. I can see why it was included to contrast the lighter lurid totes and pick up the texture, but it distracts from the rest of the look, right or wrong length.

It even overpowers the shoulder-grazing earrings.

Jaime King In Vionnet – ‘Ready Player One’ LA Premiere

Jaime King was back on the red carpet at the ‘Ready Player One’ LA premiere on Monday (March 26), joining Sofia Vergara and Kat Graham.

The former ‘Hart of Dixie’ star was a vision in a Vionnet Spring 2018 gown.

She played up the gossamer split skirt to optimal effect. It still had a lightness, but I’m sure many will be pleased it’s not as sheer as the original version.

The strip of red on the neckline brought the look to life while adding a touch of humor thanks to its tape-like effect.

Red heels finished the striking ensemble.

Jonathan Simkhai and Janet Mock celebrate International Women’s Day

Celebrities turned up to help Jonathan Simkhai and Janet Mock celebrate International Women’s Day on Thursday (March 8). The duo invited friends to a special dinner to participate in The Standard’s Ring Your Rep initiative, while benefiting Swing Left.

Nikki Reed: Demonstrating that sophistication and athleisure aren’t mutually exclusive, she projected a luxe casual air in a longline jacket and track bottoms. The tailoring and vertical white stripes had a flattering lengthening effect.

Jaime King: The actress reinvigorated classics with the sweeping hem of her Jonathan Simkhai trench coat encircling a pair of cropped blue jeans. Nicholas Kirkwood sliders added a pop of freshness and a modern finish.

Tasya van Ree: The artist toughened up a black button-down with the form-fitting trousers and vertiginous strappy shoes. The final flourish was her signature hat. It was sleek and chic.

Jaime King In Oscar de la Renta – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

Jaime King graced the red carpet at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California, joining Miley Cyrus, Karen Gillan and Lea Michele.

With frothy layers of white tulle and a smattering of cascading gold embellishment, she oozed ethereal prettiness in an Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2018 gown.

The whimsical mood was kicked up a notch with her floral jewellery.

Even with the ornate metallic bodice, there is a carefree nature to the style I find most appealing.

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.
