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.

‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ Toronto International Film Festival Premiere

'If Beale Street Could Talk' Toronto International Film Festival Premiere

A trio of beauties were at the premiere of ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ during the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday (September 9) in Canada.

Regina King: My jaw is still on the floor after seeing Regina in this electric-blue Zac Posen stunner that created an impact not only by virtue of its intense hue but also by the seductive-glam hourglass fit. The only other thing she needed were Alexis Bittar pave teardrop post earrings.

Teyonah Parris: Exploded prints like the one in this Kenzo Fall 2018 look can sometimes be overwhelming. But, not so on Teyonah, as the abstract floral dress was a striking statement on her — although I do wish she had opted for a dark sandal instead to further streamline the look.

KiKi Layne: Rounding out this trio of bold and beautiful looks, Kiki donned a Gucci Fall 2018 side slit dress that was pretty in pink — with a cool edge in the colour-changing sheen.

2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The stylish ladies were out in full force at the 2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards on Monday (November 6) in Brooklyn, New York.

Sara Sampaio: The Portuguese model charmed in a J Mendel Resort 2018 mini. The short shape and blush colour were enlivened with feathered appliqués. The dusty neutral tones and simple styling allowed the texture to be appreciated without the bird connotations.

Karlie Kloss:
 Striking a shimmering statement, the model donned a Christian Dior frock. The long sleeves and ankle-length hemline had a prim feel, but the geometric pattern and shimmering details added much allure.

Lauren Santo Domingo: Also in a feathered confection, the Moda Operandi cofounder was clad in Calvin Klein Fall 2017. Similar to Sara, the textured look had a sophisticated finish thanks to the blush-toned feathers but hers were accented with red and yellow. Given the lightness of the dress, I would have preferred a softer shoe without the black details. You may remember that Julianne Moore wore this same dress to the Met Gala.

#REVOLVEawards

There were head-turning looks aplenty at the #REVOLVEawards in Hollywood, California on Thursday (November 2).

Nicole Richie: The designer shone in a House of Harlow 1960 Sabrina dress. The rich emerald green fabric had disco leanings, but the relaxed wrap silhouette and dropped sleeves added a luxe bohemian feel. I could have done without the necklace or the earrings as the belt and green eyeshadow made such a statement, but overall this had a wonderful effect.

Teyana Taylor: Proving that simplicity doesn’t have to be boring, the actress smoldered with her NBD x Revolve Aldon gown. She played up the gold buttons on her hip with chunky gold jewellery. If I had to nitpick, I wish the gown had been shortened an inch or so.

Chrissy Teigen: The model showed off her Chrissy Teigen x Revolve Jet Lag maxi dress from her recent collaboration with the retailer. The inky style is both formal and relaxed at the same time thanks to the velvet and metallic accents against the soft wrap style.

CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Show Red Carpet Roundup

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund show on Wednesday (October 25) in Los Angeles, California presented a myriad of exciting looks thanks to the number of stylish women in attendance.

Millie Bobby Brown: This minimalist Calvin Klein look helped cement the ‘Stranger Things’ actress’s status as a young starlet who has an innate sense of style. Some might deem this outfit as a tad too sophisticated for a 13-year-old, but I found the mix of the white halter dress against the bold black accessories brilliant. It showed that younger celebs don’t always need to go the princess route.

Nikki Reed: The actress’s Emporio Armani Spring 2017 separates had an easy elegance. Critics might find that the ensemble looked too much like pjamas, but the vibrant colour and the contrasting candy cane-like stripes on the cuffs and hem presented a fun finish. The tailoring was also beautifully done. The look was styled with Casadei sandals and a Lee Savage clutch.

Kaia Gerber: The model was another one who sported a chic outfit that revealed a mature sense of styling. The demure below-the-knee Veronica Beard Spring 2018 dress didn’t feel dowdy thanks to the white and red check. Plus, her bold accessories lent a youthful vibe to the frock.

Teyana Taylor pays homage to Janet Jackson at the 2017 MTV VMAs

Teyana Taylor, who took home the award for Best Choreography at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (August 28), kept her look very simple for the event.

You might think that her abs were the talking point, but actually this cropped white V-neck and wide-legged black trousers were quickly identifed as similar, if not identical, to the one Janet Jackson wore in 1995, when she attended the VMAs and took home multiple awards for her ‘Scream,’ collaboration with her brother, Michael Jackson.

Even the super-short bob haircut was taken onboard when replicating this look.

In fact, the only difference is that Teyana t-shirt was emblazoned with “Underrated 7”, while Janet’s said “Pervert 2”.

What do you think of this twinning moment?
