Beyonce Knowles In Atelier Versace, Mary Katrantzou, Balmain & Ashi Studio – Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100

Beyonce Knowles In Atelier Versace, Mary Katrantzou, Balmain & Ashi Studio - Global Citizen Festival Mandela 100

The Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 was held at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa on Sunday (December 3) — and Beyonce headlined the event honouring the late Nelson Mandela with her husband, JAY-Z, during a 90-minute performance.

As could be expected, Queen Bey not only slayed the song list but also her slew of custom looks — with some paying direct tribute to Africa.

Making an entrance took on new meaning with this custom-made Atelier Versace second-skin jumpsuit that was bold not only in hue but also in form with its cut-outs and safety-pin accents inspired by the heritage of the iconic Versace safety pin and the new Pre-Fall collection. The matching sunny-yellow fedora and wispy cape-like robe only added to the sultry, dramatic form of this stage-ready look.

Models @ amfAR Gala Cannes 2018

With the limited showing of actresses – Kristen Stewart, Laura Harrier and Coco Konig – at the amfAR Cannes Gala this year, it was left to the models to provide the glamour.

Maria Borges: It’s been so great to see Roberto Cavalli back on the red carpet at Cannes. Maria was one of many models to don a look from the Couture collection this year. This platinum piece dripping with citrine micro-crystals and draped fringes was as dazzling as she was radiant.

Karolina Kurkova: Always a cut above, the model looked very elegant and sexy in her Miu Miu column dress which she perfectly accessorized with Miu Miu shoes and drop diamond earrings to complement the Swarovski crystal bow.

Sara Sampaio: Even the models outstretch leg couldn’t upstage the dazzling sheen of her pleated lame Elie Saab Resort 2018 blue gown.

‘Burning (Beoning)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

The second Wednesday at Cannes Film Festival is always one of the quietest days as celebs gear up for tonight’s amfAR Gala, but there were a few models who turn out for the ‘Burning (Beoning)’ premiere last night (May 16).

Toni Garrn: The model looked breath-taking wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2018 gown. Had it not been for the required Cannes bling – courtesy of Messika – I think that bodice would’ve been considered detail enough.

Blackkklansman’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of high octane fashion at the premiere of ‘Blackkklansman’ at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival on Monday evening (May 14). Celebrities joined Damaris LewisLaura Harrier and Naomi Campbell.

Natasha Poly: The pastel purple hue brought an ethereal quality to the unabashed sexiness of her Atelier Versace Spring 2018 dress. It had every sensual element and came to life when in motion. I’m of two minds about removing the front skirt panel as it often seems like it’s in the way.

Winnie Harlow: The vivid green hue of her Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Haute Couture outfit has such a bewitching quality and looks wonderful with her complexion. Alas, the material is not holding up very well for a couture look. It’s rather wilted.

Deepika Padukone In Ashi Studio Couture – ‘Ash Is The Purest White (Jiang Hu Er Nv) Cannes Film Festival Premiere

The red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Ash Is The Purest White (Jiang Hu Er Nv)’ , was immediately shut down when Deepika Padukone stepped onto it.

I know many of you were fatigued by her look yesterday, but if this doesn’t shake you to your very core, I don’t know what will.

The Bollywood beauty dared to do what so few do at Cannes these days…take a risk.

We wanted drama. And here it is. Radiant in Ashi Studio Spring 2018 Couture.

Those of you who hate mullet dresses will have a hard time not loving this one, such is the sculptural elegance and powerful nature of this gown; which starts with the magnetic hue and ends with the punk-inspired styling of this look.

Go big or go home finally found its meaning again at Cannes.

Aquazzura ‘Simple Irresistable’ pumps in exotic pink plus Lorraine Schwartz jewels completed her look.

Araya A. Hargate In Ashi Studio – ‘Ash Is The Purest White (Jiang Hu Er Nv) Cannes Film Festival Premiere

“Give us something different,” we screamed last night, and tonight Araya A. Hargate delivered at the premiere of ‘Ash Is The Purest White (Jiang Hu Er Nv)’ during Cannes Film Festival, with another feather-festooned moment.

The trouble is, am I really buying this Ashi Studio Spring 2018 Couture featured jumpsuit on her?

Yes and no.

I LOVE that it’s not another beaded cape gown and that it has all the drama I yearn for at Cannes, because if you can’t wear a feathered jumpsuit here, where are you likely to wear it?

On the flip side, the right side of my brain keeps asking is she really tall enough to make this truly work?

She’s giving it a damn good try. And this is far better than her last two beautiful, but forgettable outings.

Emerald stone Chopard jewels manage to upstage all those feathers.
