Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

Harper's BAZAAR Celebrates 'ICONS By Carine Roitfeld'

The glam guest list of models, music royalty, and more was almost impossibly long for Harper’s BAZAAR’s celebration of ‘ICONS by Carine Roitfeld’ during New York Fashion Week on Friday (September 7).

Sara Sampaio: The model shone wore a scintillating sequin Maison Alexandrine gown with Christian Louboutin heels and bombshell waves.

Cardi B: Extravagance is generally the singer’s middle name, and especially so in this Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2018 extravaganza of ruffles and jewels.

Daily Front Row’s Fashion Media Awards

Daily Front Row's Fashion Media Awards

A host of models and actresses joined Priyanka Chopra and Nicki Minaj on the red carpet for the Daily Front Row’s Fashion Media Awards on Thursday (September 6) in New York City.

Gigi Hadid: Smoulding in Paco Rabanne’s Pre-Fall 2018 lurex drape asymmetrical top and skirt, the looks feels both sensual and chic. I love how the snappers down the side keep it modern and cool – alongside a sharp slit that shows off some skin.

Ashley Graham: This black dress could’ve been Zac Posen or Vivienne Westwood, but it’s actually Matičevski. This is a gorgeous piece, from the waist down. I’m not quite sure the bodice is that flattering, or secure.

Slick Woods: This is one unique way to approach red carpet style, fearlessly and on your own terms in Nina Ricci Spring 2018. More power to her. The model added more feathers with her Brother Vellies ‘Palms’ sandals.

Flaunt and Fendi celebrate the launch of The New Fantasy Issue

Flaunt and FENDI celebrated the launch of The New Fantasy Issue and Fendi Men’s Spring 2018 collection with a private cocktail party at Casa Perfect in Beverly Hills, California on Wednesday (March 21).

Amanda Steele: Schoolgirl charm and ladylike quirk converged in this logo-forward Fendi ensemble, the periwinkle-blue skirt of which defines the stylish eccentricity of the look.

Charlie Heaton: As the cover star of The New Fantasy Issue, Charlie was the guest of honour and wore the Fendi label, naturally. I like the dandy combination of prints and patterns in this retro-cool statement.

Kiersey Clemons: While this Fendi look had all the girlish cues—what with the floral and doily lace—the overall effect melded together with tougher edge that completely legitimized the look and kept it from venturing too saccharine. I love how she balanced sweet and sassy from head to toe.

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.

Celebrities Love…Vinyl Trousers

Vinyl has been having a revival of sorts—and not just of the record type.

Trousers of the vinyl variety have been popping up during Fashion Weeks—from New York to London and Paris—capturing the affection of trendy celebrities as they transition their wardrobes into fall.

The glossy PVC pants bring a whole new layer of edginess mixed with stylish rebellion, providing an updated twist on the traditional leather trouser. And, they are way more than a one-trick-pony, as this recent trio of stars proves just how sartorially versatile they can be.

If you immediately associate vinyl with the colour black, Sara Sampaio’s look during London Fashion Week will quickly change your perception of PVC. I love the intense teal hue of her cropped pants. Styled with matching Chloe Gosselin sandals along with a cropped shirt and a Chanel bag, it was a timelessly modern look that radiated with cool-girl appeal.

Larsen Thompson continues to impress with her directional looks, and this street-style 3.1 Phillip Lim head-to-toe statement from New York Fashion Week was no different. The shiny, sky-blue pants with a mock paper bag waist showed that tight, spray-on vinyl isn’t the only way to wear the trend.

As for Kourtney Kardashian, she also hopped on the vinyl bandwagon with her look just yesterday (September 26) during Paris Fashion Week. Offering a tough-girl-chic variation, she paired slick, army-green Acne Tugi vinyl trousers with a T by Alexander Wang chunky asymmetrical sweater, an Alexander Wang ‘Attica Soft Mini Cross Body Bag, and Dr. Martens boots.

Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

The list of lovelies at Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’ on Friday (September 8) in New York City was seemingly unending, as a number of stars joined Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, and Kim Kardashian.

Gigi Hadid: Her hyper-embellished Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2017 ensemble, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, was so intricate and powerful of a statement that it really didn’t require the rhinestone clogs.

Kaia Gerber: Cindy Crawford’s model daughter was all grown up in a slinky Kristian Aadnevik Fall 2017 mini that had her looking like her mom more and more.

Kendall Jenner: There was little left to the imagination in this Dolce & Gabbana ruched, sheer number. Yet, ironically in spite of the see-through, I couldn’t help but still get a certain sophisticated, glam vibe with the look, which I will chalk up to its silhouette along with Kendall’s Old-Hollywood waves, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and Jimmy Choo sandals.
