2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show After-Party

2018 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show After-Party

The 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show took place in New York on Thursday (November 8), with a performance from Rita Ora.

Following the show was the after-party; where a host of models served up the expected sheer, mini and slashed dresses, but there were also a few surprises.

Candice Swanepoel: The model was looking not-so angelic in Khyeli Spring 2019 Couture. As sheer dresses go, I love the beaded detailing.

Liu Wen: The model never goes the sheer route, but she did on this occasion wearing a look from Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini’s Spring 2019 collection.

Toni Garrn: This golden girl managed to leave something to the imagination in her draped chain metal dress styled with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

Front Row @ Chanel Fall 2018 Haute Couture

Chanel presented their Fall 2018 Haute Couture show in Paris on Tuesday (July 3), with a host of stars, including their most loyal ambassadors in the front row.

Penelope Cruz: The Spanish actress was portraying a Parisian princess in her Chanel tweed dress and beret comb. I adored this look from head-to-toe as it was such and fun departure for Penelope.

Liu Wen: The model was appropriately dressed for the heatwave in this easy, breezy chiffon cool-blue Chanel dress. She continues to be my best dressed model.

Ellie Bamber: As one of Chanel’s official ambassadors, I wasn’t surprised to see the British actress in the front row. Oozing the same charm we got from Penelope’s look – thanks to the beret – my favourite part of this look was her Lifebuoy Chanel bag.

‘Ocean’s 8’ World Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

There were a host of models supporting the all-female cast consisting of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Awkwafina, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter and Rihanna, for the world premiere of ‘Ocean’s 8’ in New York City last night (June 5).

Liu Wen: As always the model looked effortless and chic in Jason Wu Fall 2018. I always admire her style as she marches to the beat of her own drum. I covet this from head-to-toe.

Adriana Lima: In this Roberto Cavalli Couture gown, it’s sheer, beaded, has a high slit and deep plunge. If you were to design a dress for Adriana, this would be it. Predictable, but fits to a ‘T’. But if you to ask me who was sexier, her or Liu Wen, I would say Liu Wen. Sophia Webster ‘Nicole’ sandals and Chopard jewelry completed her look.

Gigi Hadid: The model went from a riot of colour at the CFDA Awards, to just black in Vera Wang Collection Spring 2018. I love the structured bustier with trapunto detailing, but the rest doesn’t grab my attention.

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

The fashion was strong at the ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival premiere on Tuesday evening (May 15). Attendees joined Emilia Clarke, Phoebe Waller-BridgeThandie Newton and Elizabeth Debicki.

Liu Wen: Never one to go down the sheer, bedazzled route, she shone in Bottega Veneta Fall 2018. She borrowed styling ideas from the runway, but added a Bottega Veneta clutch. The rich marigold colour had such a sumptuous air. I’m curious to see how the ankle boots will go down.

Toni Garrn: The German model showed some leg in Roberto Cavalli Couture. It certainly embodied the designer’s sensual aesthetic. It also showed a level of craftsmanship for the way the lining perfectly matched her skin tone with no distracting bra cups or panty lines.

Doutzen Kroes: The Dutch beauty traded in the gown for strong-shouldered Tom Ford separates paired with pink Tom Ford pumps. Some ensembles with exaggerated shoulders haven’t gone down well, but the proportions of this look shouldn’t offend.

Michael Kors Collection @ 2018 Met Gala

The Michael Kors Collection was another popular label seen at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City, with these six lovelies wearing the designer.

Naomi Watts: While this gold tapestry, shoulder-cape gown was one of the simpler, thematic looks of the night, I still thought it was a plenty righteous if somewhat forgettable look for the night.

Liu Wen: Something about the model’s strapless gown was giving me more of an Asian-influenced than angelic-inspired mood. It could have been the red and gold floral combination.

Front Row @ Chanel Fall 2018

Chanel darlings would not be missed on the front row, where the house’s designer Karl Lagerfeld envisioned an autumnal, leaf-dotted setting for the Fall 2018 presentation during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (March 6).

Keira Knightley: This colourful tweed dress would have been far more successful with a bit more waist-defining shape to defeat the tent-like notions. It was also in desperate need of a sleeker hairstyle.

Liu Wen: The model owned this chunky sweater and wide-leg trousers combo despite the exaggerated proportions of both the top and bottom pieces.

Lily Allen: Speaking of oversized silhouettes, these embellished pants were the main attraction of Lily’s look, so I do like how she kept it simple up top with the black T-shirt. Her classic handbag and the hair ribbon tied around her pastel-pink updo added a sweet girlishness to the look.

2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show After Show Party

The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show After Party took place on Monday (November 20) in Shanghai, China, with a wide ranging mix of styles.

I decided to split them into categories this year staring with: My Favourites.

Cindy Bruna: This Brandon Maxwell Spring 2017 suit originally stormed the runway with a blouse, but Cindy made the look her own by opting to go without.  The excessive boobage might turn off some, but I’m more intrigued by the impeccable tailoring.

Maria Borges: I’m a huge fan of Maria’s style, but I was blown away when she opted to wear this Tiffany Amber gown which proudly showcased her African roots. The dress, the belt and head wrap are gorgeous, but it’s the ‘going against the grain’ statement which I find most endearing.

Jourdana Phillips: You can’t get much chicer than a cream tuxedo dress styled with gold Giuseppe Zanotti rose-gold sandals.

Front Row @ Chanel Spring 2018

The final day of Paris Fashion Week brought with it a 50-foot waterfall like only designer Karl Lagerfeld can create at his water-themed Chanel Spring 2018 collection on Tuesday (October 3), where Chanel-clad guests sat front row to witness the show.

Clemence Poesy: Classic Chanel tweed took a less expected turn with Clemence’s pairing of pearls and cuffed pants. Lug-sole loafers completed the look, which had a certain unconventional boyish-charm.

Sophie Cookson: Meanwhile, the LBD got a Chanel lift with the logo belt, quilted clutch, and over-the-knee boots for an eternally chic look.

Monica Bellucci: Wearing her favoured colour of black, Monica kept her look simple and sophisticated with a coat and slim trousers.

BoF 500 Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Selena Gomez and Jared Leto weren’t the only two holding court at the BoF 500 Gala on Saturday (September 9) in New York City. Here, a look at the other guests in attendance.

Doutzen Kroes: The model showed off her form in a ruched and gathered Jason Wu Spring 2018 drawstring dress that offered a new twist on the LBD.

Lewis Hamilton: If Lewis’s confetti pants didn’t spell party, I don’t know what does. This Dior Homme look is fashion-forward without being overcooked or try-hard. Jared Leto may want to take notes.

Taylor Hill: I’m afraid this Julien Macdonald Fall 2017 metallic mini came across as a bit dated, but it was more the crimped hair and nude sandals that killed the vibe.

The Victoria’s Secret casting serves up some lusty-worthy street style looks

The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is due to take place in November, so auditions are already underway at VS HQ in New York City.

Models arrived in an array of gorgeous looks, but crop tops were most prevalent, which was not surprising considering having a toned tum is a prerequisite for the job.

Hailey Baldwin: Back in 2016 she said, “I want to walk in the Victoria’s Secret show, it’s every girl’s dream.” Well, it looks like the model will finally get her wish. She arrived wearing casual Frame Denim jeans with a sexy Balmain sheer crossover-front tulle crop top which she styled with a Gucci GG Marmont Camera mini quilted leather shoulder bag and Saint Laurent pumps. I can already hear your groans of disappointment that she’s even at the casting stage.

Maria Borges: I love how the model used the streets of Manhattan as her runway. She was serving up so much style and glamour wearing a cute floral romper with Zac Posen shades. I love the added pop via the red Calvin Klein pumps.

Jasmine Tookes: Even a Designers Remix polka dot dress and denim jacket can look super luxe on Jasmine. I love the chic laidback vibe of this look.

Front Row @ Chanel Fall 2017 Couture

The front row of the Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2017 show at the Grand Palais on Tuesday (July 4) was especially star-studded this Paris Fashion Week season with so many stylish notables in attendance—and dressed in their Chanel best, naturally.

Kristen Stewart: I never imagined a cropped, sequin jumpsuit could look so relevant. But, I credit its seamless appeal to the minimal styling surrounding as Kristen makes it work with her sheer lack of accessories save for her classic black pumps and, of course, that edgy platinum buzz cut.

Pom Klementieff: The quintessential cool girl, Pom never ceases to impress with her inspired, impossibly chic style. My obsession continues with this look that provided an unexpected twist on classic Chanel tweed with this reverse jacket—with lapels cut low in the back—paired with black, cutoff denim and metallic heels. From the classic buttons, to the rebellious fray of the pant hem, to the singular sunny spark radiating from the quilted handbag, it’s the details here that make all the difference.

Cara Delevingne: Rounding out this trio of icy blondes, Cara also was on top form in her particular brand of edginess that actually didn’t involve a leggy mini this time out. Still, those slouchy, metallic trousers made her pins look a mile long. She rounded out her style warrior look with a Chanel choker and arm cuff along with a flirty, hot pink eye shadow that put plenty of pretty spunk into the look.
