Normani Kordei In Jean Louis Sabaji Couture – 4th Annual Diamond Ball

Normani Kordei In Jean Louis Sabaji Couture - 4th Annual Diamond Ball

Normani attended Rihanna’s 4th Annual Diamond Ball benefitting The Clara Lionel Foundation on Thursday (September 13) in New York City.

Testament to Jean Louis Sabaji’s distinctive cuts and unconventional elegance, this Spring 2018 gown features gloves attached to the sleeves, a mini trend I thought would take off following Tilda Swinton and Doutzen Kroes’ recent red carpet appearances.

Finished with a flowing train which mimics feathers, this is easily one of my favourite looks from Normani.

Contemporary and chic.

‘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.

2nd Annual Wearable Art Gala Red Carpet Roundup

At the 2nd Annual Wearable Art Gala on Saturday (March 17) in LA, Beyonce may have been Queen B with her undulating golden goddess gown. But, there were still plenty of fashion-minded femmes making waves there—and adopting the ‘Black Panther’ theme via their Wakanda-inspired looks.

Tina Knowles: Like mother, like daughter. Bey’s mom and Wearable Art Gala co-founder also went down a golden-bronze path—granted, a more subdued one—in this Jean-Louis Sabaji Spring 2018 Couture satin creation that was bedecked in a feathered cape for dramatic effect.

Beyonce Knowles In Jean-Louis Sabaji Couture – Wearable Art Gala

Following her red carpet look, Beyonce Knowles changed into a seat friendly dress for the Wearable Art Gala on Saturday (March 17).

Continuing the same golden Nubian warrior theme, this Jean-Louis Sabaji Spring 2018 Couture look didn’t have the same gravitas as the first; even with the addition of the gold metal hand guards, as it still feels like an oversized bomber jacket.

I think the train is bothering me the most, as it doesn’t appear to serve any real purpose.

Models @ The Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Models stormed the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California, with a range of head-turning looks—for better or worse.

Alessandra Ambrosio: The naked dress had another showing with this Ralph & Russo Couture embellished, sheer design, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. There will be no doubt her body isn’t rocking, but I know eyes will be rolling at the complete transparency of the look.

Ashley Graham: This Rubin Singer gown featured a recognizable, slit-to-there silhouette, but it was the gleaming sheen that upped the ante. A swept-back hairstyle and Sophia Webster sandals completed the look.

Lily Aldridge: The golden-goddess look served Lily well in this Versace liquid-gold gown that had a certain chainmail effect. Christian Louboutin heels and Bvlgari jewels and bag finished her glamorously regal entrance.

Allison Williams In Jean-Louis Sabaji Couture – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Allison Williams left the Academy Awards and headed to the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscars Party on Sunday (March 4) in Los Angeles.

After her nude colored Armani Privé gown at the ceremony, she went for a much bolder color in this Jean-Louis Sabaji Spring 2018 Couture gown.

I am totally swooning over the petal-covered skirt and love how unexpected and unique it is. Allison looks beautiful in bright colors and this is a complete departure from her first gown. I will say, I wish there was a bit more of a tapered, mermaid-esque shape to it, as it slightly less impactful as is, but that is really nit-picking on my part!
