V&A Summer Party Red Carpet Roundup

There were many more celebs joining Sylvia Hoeks and Ciara in London for the V&A Summer Party on Wednesday (June 20).

Lady Kitty Spencer: Taking inspiration from Sicilian Majolica ceramic art, this dress from Dolce & Gabbana is printed with a colourful and artistic array of painted florals motifs. Spotlighting a feminine fit and flare silhouette, the look was interestingly complemented by colourful Mary Jane pumps.

Princess Beatrice: I love the white MSGM ruffle dress and her Kurt Geiger ‘Stratton’ pumps, but her Pop & Suki box bag didn’t need to make a reappearance with this look. It just didn’t work for me.

Gwendoline Christie: This wasn’t my favourite from this event, but I did like the girlie flourish which came from the hairband.

The Fashion Awards 2017 Red Carpet Roundup

The long list of stars continued in full force at The Fashion Awards 2017 on Monday (December 4) in London.

Kaia Geber: I loved seeing the young model have some fun with the flirty nature of ruffles in this Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 two-piece, cold-shoulder look. It was style-forward, chic, and sweet at the same time. Messika jewels completed her look.

Adwoa Aboah: There was no sequin left unturned in this Halpern Spring 2018 sequin number, but it was the platform footwear that compromised its fresh potential.

Jourdan Dunn: The sultry seduction of the Versace label was fully celebrated in this orange gown. But I most loved the model’s gorgeous beauty look.

Rosamund Pike In Altuzarra & Laura Bailey In Erdem – ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ London Film Festival Closing Ceremony Premiere

It was a floral extravaganza at the ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ London Film Festival closing ceremony premiere on Sunday (October 15).

Rosamund Pike: First, the English actress donned a bohemian Altuzarra Fall 2017 gown. The button-down dress was emboldened by rich yellow blooms against a deep blue background. While one could easily get lost admiring the details in the pattern, I found my eye going to the contrasting black collar and cuffs which were tied in with her black shoes.

Laura Bailey: Contrasting Rosamund’s sunny floral dress, the model chose an ethereal lilac lace Erdem Fall 2017 gown. The sprinkling of black flowers was in keeping with the designer’s moody elegance while the burgundy crisscross on the chest added an unexpected element. Some might remember the frock from when Nicole Kidman wore it at the Glamour Women of The Year Awards. With her hair pulled back, smoky eye and The Kooples ‘Emily’ bag, I feel that Laura made the ensemble her own as she took it in a bolder direction.

Alexandra Shulman’s Vogue Leaving Party

A whole host of famous faces descended on the Dock Kitchen on Thursday (June 22) for British Vogue editor, Alexandra Shulman’s, leaving party in London.

Rosamund Pike: Rosamund kept it laid-back and breezey wearing an Antonio Berardi Resort 2017 dress. There was a delicacy to the pale pink colour palette and softness to the asymmetric hem which I instantly fell in love with. Pure and stripped back, the actress kept her makeup minimal and hair pulled back. The results were polished, but were they a little plain?

Victoria Beckham: Looking city chic in leather pants and a plain white tee, the designer wore her own Victoria Beckham collection. I love the smoky eye and the red waistband which add a sultry edge to this Resort 2018 look. The tight skinny trousers are complemented by the loose top, whilst classic black heels finish this look perfectly.

Laura Bailey: Donning an uplifting maxi dress with palm prints, Laura looked fresh and summery. I particularly love the green hues paired with the model’s tortoiseshell sunglasses. A simple braid and centre parting bring cool holiday vibes, as does the halter neck design.

Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Preview Party

Wednesday (June 7) played host to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition preview party, a highlight of London’s social calendar which attracted a plethora of style savvy stars.  I was delighted that many summery frock were on display, despite the not-so summer weather.

Zawe Ashton: There was something very 1920s about Zawe’s Roksanda ‘Hillevi’ dress in glorious bubblegum pink satin. Sleek finishing touches were added with a Roksanda ‘Besa’ bag and Roksanda ‘Dana’ shoes.

Florence Welch: Sticking to her signature bohemian style, the singer kept things colourful with a Gucci Fall 2017 ensemble. Black and pink floral prints made way for a ruby red Gucci clutch and cream Gucci boots, both emblazoned with the designer’s definitive animal symbolism.

Katherine Jenkins: The singer chose a monochrome Nedo by Nedret Taciroğlu piece for the occasion. While I liked the lace detailing, the belt seemed ill-fitting to the look.

Vogue & Ralph Lauren Wimbledon Party

Vogue & Ralph Lauren Wimbledon Party

Boris Becker hosted the Ralph Lauren Wimbledon summer cocktail party to celebrate 10 years of Ralph Lauren as the official outfitter to the championship, alongside Gwendoline Christie and British Vogue, which I was delighted to attend yesterday evening (June 22).

Jessica Chastain: As you can imagine I was most excited to see Jessica Chastain at the event, who opted for Ralph Lauren Collection black and white fit and flare dress which was perfectly in tune with her sophisticated style. It looks like she’s used her time out of the spotlight to catch a few rays.

Alice Eve: With the grey clouds threatening rain, a Ralph Lauren camel knit dress wasn’t a bad choice. What really sold this look to me was Alice’s Ralph Lauren fringed bag which is appeared to have a lot of fun with.

Lily James: The ‘Cinderella’ star looked radiant wearing a Ralph Lauren Collection shirt dress which was relaxed in nature yet possessed plenty of feminine panache. A selection of gold jewels complemented her Ralph Lauren ‘Jean’ sandals.
