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.

HFPA and Instyle Celebration of the 2018 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Many more style darlings were at the HFPA and Instyle Celebration of the 2018 Golden Globe Awards on Wednesday (November 15) in West Hollywood, California.

Serinda Swan: This Styland ensemble brought every bit of smoldering sizzle we’d expect from a hot-red gown except manifested in a suit, and I loved every minute of it—especially with the matching red lip and handbag.

Andrea Riseborough:
The event saw Andrea reinvent her look again, as she rocked a new Galaxina hairstyle with an equally galactic metallic jumpsuit. Directional makeup and decorative wrist cuffs completed the look that may split the vote—but I think we can all agree that there will be no boredom with this punchy, experimental look.

Olivia Culpo: Some may fault the visible cups underneath this Monique Lhuillier Spring 2018 gown. But, the wispy beauty of the tulle and its glinting embellishment had a sense of enchantment, regardless.

2017 Baby2Baby Gala Red Carpet Roundup

There were many more celebrities at the 2017 Baby2Baby Gala on Saturday (November 11) in LA, where Gwyneth Paltrow was honoured.

Jessica Alba: Even though she was wearing black, the actress was as glowing as ever. She dressed her burgeoning baby bump in a lace, form-fitted look from the Brock Collection Spring 2018 collection that brought plenty of sultry glamour to the event. Giuseppe Zanotti shoes completed the look.

Jennifer Garner: With an angelic approach, Jennifer wore a white Roland Mouret ‘Cheverley’ gown, which featured high-impact cape sleeves as a dramatic touchpoint.

Alessandra Ambrosio: I think we can all agree that this floral Ermanno Scervino Spring 2018 gown was a subtler take on the model’s favoured overtly sexy style. She accessorised the sweetly feminine look with Narcisa Pheres earrings and a Pasquale Bruni necklace along with the Lee Savage ‘The Space’ clutch.
