Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Antonio Berardi – Auckland War Memorial Museum

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Antonio Berardi - Auckland War Memorial Museum

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex met New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for a formal reception at the Auckland War Memorial Museum today (October 30).

Meghan took a leaf out of Kate Middleton’s book as she recycled her navy blue Antonio Berardi dress, which she had previously worn back in May 2017 for the Audi Polo Challenge.

The polo event was the couple’s first public appearance after announcing they were in a relationship six months beforehand.

On this occasion Meghan paired the asymmetrical hemline dress with her favourite heels from Aquazzura and her bespoke Dior clutch.

I love the fun polka clutch she wore the first time around, but this styling suited the occasion.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Antonio Berardi – Invictus Games Closing Ceremony

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Antonio Berardi - Invictus Games Closing Ceremony

Following the Wheelchair Basketball Finals in Sydney, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games on Saturday (October 27).

The Duchess took to the stage wearing an Antonio Berardi tuxedo dress.

Her sleeveless olive green dress was smart, but I was slightly irked by the modifications made to the top half which rendered the look a bit sloppy.

Antonio Berardi’s craftsmanship is second to none, I know this first hand. And I appreciate that the Duchess’ body is changing all the time, but surely they have a seamstress on hand to prevent such things.

To make matters worse, she wore Aquazzura cream ankle strap pumps which were so wrong for the look, leaving her to look like she was wearing ankle monitors.

Not my favourite by a long shot.

‘A Simple Favor’ Paris Premiere

'A Simple Favor' Paris Premiere

The Paris premiere for ‘A Simple Favor’ took place on Tuesday (September 20) with Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick in attendance.

Blake Lively: Following her Ralph Lauren look, I joked on Instagram that Blake was wearing her 1,356 suit of this promo tour to which – much to my surprise – she responded “Would you note a man wearing lots of suits during a promo tour? So why can’t a woman? Just sayinnnn. No double standards ladies.” This came a quite a shock considering I have loved pretty much every look during this promo tour, and that I have said repeatedly that I have admired her commitment to rocking suits throughout. I’m not sure of the actual number, but yet another suit was worn in the city of lights. After the summery pink in London, the mood turned to Fall in this teal and black embroidered look. What do I love about this look? The sleekness, the sexiness, the cut and the fit. But the dual-colour loose tie didn’t work for me. Maria Tash jewels and strappy Louboutins completed her look.

Anna Kendrick: I have always been a great admirer of Antonio Berardi, but this Fall 2018 design didn’t quite work for me on Anna. Had she modified the look – removing the train – I have a strong belief this would’ve worked. As it is, the look feels so overwhelming.

Ilana Glazer In Bibhu Mohapatra & Abbi Jacobson In Antonio Berardi – 2018 Emmy Awards

Ilana Glazer In Bibhu Mohapatra & Abbi Jacobson In Antonio Berardi - 2018 Emmy Awards

Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson were both at the 2018 Emmy Awards on Monday (September 17) in LA.

Ilana wore a Bibhu Mohapatra bustier gown that got an extra jolt of attitude with the red piece running through the plisse skirt. She styled it with Nicholas Kirkwood sandals and Wendy Nichol jewels.

Abbi’s lemon-yellow Antonio Berardi Resort 2019 peplum gown celebrated a sunny, monochromatic disposition, paired with Stuart Weitzman sandals and Wendy Nichol jewels.

What united the two looks was a feeling that they fell a bit too long in the hem, with a shared sense that something was missing on both. Perhaps a bolder statement earring or a bright lip would have perked up the both of them.

‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ Stockholm Gala Premiere

Ten years after Meryl Streep led an all-singing cast in ‘Mamma Mia!’, audiences get another chance to belt out some Abba tunes in the cinema with the highly anticipated box office hit’s sequel.

The obvious choice for the ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ gala premiere was Stockholm, Sweden, which is the home of the Swedish pop group.

Amanda Seyfried: The actress went short and sassy in Prada. As we all know Prada has come a long way when it comes to their red carpet dressing. This split sleeve number was enlivened with the smattering of gold embellishments. I was happy to see Amanda’s playful side return to the red carpet.

Lily James: Having showcased two ultra feminine looks for the press junket, Lily amped things up with a sexy, shimmering frock from Saloni. Catching the light from every angle, I’m loving this rare glam moment from the British actress.

Christine Baranski: You can’t go wrong with a beautifully tailored dress from Antonio Berardi. The detailing on this Pre-Fall 2018 dress is impeccable. I just wish she had saved this velvet gem for a Fall premiere.

‘Bold & Fearless’ Santos de Cartier Watch Launch Red Carpet Roundup

The ‘Bold & Fearless’ Santos de Cartier watch launch event on Thursday (April 5) in San Francisco, California brought out many celebrities. They joined Lily CollinsSienna Miller and Chloe Sevigny.

Sofia Boutella: The Algerian stunner brought to mind decades gone by in a Prada gown. I’m sure there will be many Marilyn Monroe comparisons given her blonde bob, red lipstick and the halter style. The look was still unique as it had a whimsical finish with the draped embellishment around the waist marrying with the down-to-there neckline.

Dave Franco: The actor uplifted a sleek black suit with a fiery printed button-down. With the shirt done up to the neck, it presented a crisp finish, making a tie unnecessary.

Freida Pinto: The actress opted for statement texture rather than surface embellishment in a Roland Mouret gown accented with a Gucci belt. It’s a look that one wants to see up close and far away. The open draped sides reveal a hint of skin, creating an alluring finish and helping to shed the tweed fabric’s suiting reputation. Salvatore Ferragamo shoes completed her look.
