Priyanka Chopra Weds Nick Jonas In Ralph Lauren

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon feature the Priyanka Chopra Weds Nick Jonas In Ralph Lauren

Newlyweds Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra released the images of their three-day long wedding ceremony, that was blend of the cultures from the couple’s families, and they both dressed in the appropriate ensembles to match.

For the Christian ceremony on Saturday (December 1) at the Umaid Bhawan Palace, the bride and groom (and the entire wedding party) wore Ralph Lauren, who, until now, had only designed three wedding dresses in the last five decades (his daughter, daughter-in-law, and niece were the lucky trio).

This was a very sweet gesture as the couple first publicly met back in 2017 as Ralph Lauren’s guests at the Met Gala, so it seemed only logical that the designer be involved in their wedding day.

Her hand-beaded and hand-embroidered dress, featured floral and scroll motifs and lace-effect tulle appliqués with scalloped sleeves and a high-neck collar. I love the Indian influences, the lightness of the dress and how the look was topped off by a 75-foot-long tulle veil.

Hand-stitched into the embroidery design were 8 words and phrases, specially chosen by the Bride.

1. Nicholas Jerry Jonas
2. 1st December 2018
3. Madhu & Ashok
4. Om Namah Shivay (a Hindi mantra invoking Lord Shiva)
5. Family
6. Hope
7. Compassion
8. Love

Ralph Lauren 50th Anniversary Event

Ralph Lauren 50th Anniversary Event

Star-studded to say the least, Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary celebration was hosted in grand style with a runway show and black-tie dinner during New York Fashion Week on Friday (September 7). In homage to the legendary designer, all the beauties (and the boys, too) were clad in their Ralph Lauren finest.

Blake Lively: The actress continued her run of wearing suits from her ‘A Simple Favor’ promo tour with this tux-and-tails look. I loved it all, save for her hair, which I would have preferred in sleeker form to match the sartorial mood.

Jessica Chastain: A vision in sunny yellow, the actress would not be missed in this chiffon frock that was an enchanting, light-as-air confection.

Anne Hathaway: Like Blake, Anne was similarly clad in a menswear-inspired number that she feminized with her lightened locks, silver clutch, and stilettos.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

It’s been a busy week when it comes to mens fashion, so here is our roundup.

Jared Leto: The ‘Thirty Seconds to Mars’ star made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ where he donned a Gucci Cruise 2019 look consisting of a technicolor sweater and fiyah red trouser. Let’s hope that bin bag contains some of his less fortunate red carpet looks.

Channing Tatum: The actor was recently in London to present ‘Magic Mike Live’. While I’m not usually a fan of cropped trousers on men, this Arcady pair was looking very sharp, especially when paired with his palm-print shirt. Timberland shoes completed his look.

Winston Duke: The one thing I wanted ahead of the 2018 World Cup was to get my hands on the Nigerian football kit (and my heritage is Sierra Leone), but the entire collection sold out in around 3 minutes. The Trinidadian American wore his Nike tracksuit, in true naija fashion with a gold chain plus high-top sneakers.

2018 Met Gala Menswear Roundup

The men always have a bit more of a challenge when it comes to thematic dress, but here’s how they did at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Virgil Abloh: Right out of the gate, I loved seeing Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Men’s Collections wearing this preview of the upcoming Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2019 men’s collection. Bonus points that the creamy-white design played to the theme—with an urban twist in the sneakers.

Andrew Garfield: The actor introduced the thematic, crimson-red hue via this lush velveteen Tom Ford tuxedo.

Jared Leto: If there would be anyone to fully dress to theme, it would be Jared. In head-to-toe Gucci, he flaunted this custom design that offered up his interpretation of a saintly crown paired with priestly embroidered panels. The flamboyant suit itself we could have likely seen him in any day of the week.

2018 Grammy Awards Menswear Roundup

The men brought their fashion game to the 60th anniversary of the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) in New York City.

Zayn Malik: Zayn was dressed to the nines in this mauve Richard James Spring 2018 suit. It was an unexpected hue that I loved on the singer, especially with his graphic twist on the white rose and his patterned socks.

John Legend:
The singer cut a handsome profile in this Burberry double-breasted tuxedo styled with Chopard cufflinks. I liked this sleek midnight-blue deviation from the standard black tux.

Neyo: The rapper was styling and profiling in a Grayscale suit that was boldly striking by virtue of its goldenrod, velvet jacket in which the white #TimesUp rose was the perfect counterpart.
