Rihanna’s 4th Annual Diamond Ball

Rihanna's 4th Annual Diamond Ball

There were plenty more stars who attended Rihanna’s 4th Annual Diamond Ball benefitting The Clara Lionel Foundation on Thursday (September 13) in New York City.

Teyana Taylor: The singer will always provide a talking point, whether she’s half naked or serving up plenty of drama. It was the latter on this occasion, as she clearly meant business in this formal pinstriped tuxedo dress from Moschino’s Fall 2018 collection. You weren’t fans of how Damaris Lewis presented this look, but does adding the shirt and tie sell the look the second time around.

Donald Glover: Having been part of the Gucci gang for so long, the actor opted for Dior Men Spring 2019 on this occasion. I love the teal-blue shade and the relaxed fit which made him look every inch a modern gent.

Issa Rae: All that glitters was gold for Issa Rae in Valentino Resort 2019. With that much bling you would’ve thought she would skip on the jewelry, but she added a stunning pair of Mateo earrings and gold Stuart Wetizman sandals.

2018 Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of drama at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 20) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Celebrities joined, Janet Jackson, Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez.

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host glimmered in The Blonds. It had sensuality and shimmer, but it would have benefited from editing. Had the sequined fabric been on the bustier and the satin as the draped layer, it might have been more successful.

Hailey Baldwin: The model took the plunge in Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2018. The draping is splendid but the colour doesn’t do anything. The black version from the lookbook would have been preferable or a rich jewel tone. Not even the Jennifer Fisher jewels could enliven it.

Cyn: Cannes showcased a few similar looks to this Saint Laurent Fall 2018 dress, but with much stronger shoulders. The arm likely won’t prove as irksome as the heavy ruching on the skirt and the placement of the tie.

2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The was plenty of shimmer and sass at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday (March 11) in Inglewood, California, where celebrities joined Hailey Baldwin and Iggy Azalea.

Madelaine Petsch: The ‘Riverdale’ actress opted for L’atiste by Amy coordinates and a Tyler Ellis clutch. At music awards shows almost anything goes, but this doesn’t feel quite right for the event. The accessories are enhancing the disjointed impression. The co-ords would have been cute at a photocall.

Ashley Greene: Projecting a darker mood, the actress wore a Shoshanna dress printed with metallic blooms. The flared frock was a change of pace from the usual slinky gowns, but I can see some taking issue with the prom feel.

Justine Skye: The singer brightened up the carpet in a Cushnie et Ochs dress with Pierre Hardy ‘Parade’ sandals and Area earrings. It was a fun look with her purple bun playing off the contrasting colours in the shoes.

2018 amfAR Gala New York Red Carpet Roundup

The glamour was at a high at the 2018 amfAR Gala New York on Wednesday (February 7) where lovely ladies joined Lucy Hale, Olivia Culpo and Halsey.

Sara Sampaio: The Portuguese beauty had a princess moment in Armani Privé Spring 2006. The glistening tulle was accented with the embellished straps. You’ll be forgiven for thinking that the Chopard jewels were part of the original look as they coordinate so perfectly.

Joan Smalls: Forgoing the glitzy gown, the model donned a Dolce & Gabbana suit with John Hardy jewels. The stark black piping against the muted brocade fabric creates a dynamic display of contrasts, but I wish she saved this ensemble for another event. Against the high octane dresses, it feels a touch out of place.

Coco Rocha: Projecting slinky glamour, the Canadian model showcased the pockets on her Greta Constantine Pre-Fall 2018 dress. There are details aplenty on the gown so I was thankful she lost the coordinating gloves from the lookbook version.

Justine Skye In The Blonds – 2017 BET Awards

Justine Skye made an arresting appearance at the 2017 BET Awards on Sunday (June 25) in LA.

The singer stood out in a dress from The Blonds Spring 2017 collection which I love for the contrasting gunmetal grey draped skirt against the softer luxurious silk bodice.

The futuristic feel of this dress is crying out for something more extreme like the icy blonde curls we saw on the runway, but Justine opted to braid her signature purple locks, allowing the Erickson Beamon gold and diamond earrings to add another dynamic twist.

Chloe Gosselin ‘Narcissus’ sandals provided the finishing touch.

Managing to be both glamorous and daring, this look was a winner for me. What do you make of it?

End Of The Week Roundup

With so many looks over the past week, here is a roundup of a few that were missed in the red carpet crush of events.

Julie Ann Emery: Joining Jenny Slate at the ‘Gifted’ LA premiere on Tuesday (April 4), Julie Ann embraced a minimalist angle in this Ingie Paris gown that was lovely for its aura of simplicity, although it seemed to fall a tad long at the front.

Olivia Culpo: Speaking of minimalism, this greige Cushnie et Ochs asymmetric jumpsuit was an easy-chic offering. But, it really just played second fiddle to her ultra-bronzed beauty at the grand opening celebration of the W Las Vegas on Friday (March 31).

Jess Weixler:‏ Visually enticing, the crisp white lines of this Jason Wu gown punctuated its rich burgundy hue. I only wish the actress had opted for a sleeker updo at ‘The SON’ LA premiere on Monday (April 3).
