2018 amfAR Gala New York Red Carpet Roundup

The glamour was at a high at the 2018 amfAR Gala New York on Wednesday (February 7) where lovely ladies joined Lucy Hale, Olivia Culpo and Halsey.

Sara Sampaio: The Portuguese beauty had a princess moment in Armani Privé Spring 2006. The glistening tulle was accented with the embellished straps. You’ll be forgiven for thinking that the Chopard jewels were part of the original look as they coordinate so perfectly.

Joan Smalls: Forgoing the glitzy gown, the model donned a Dolce & Gabbana suit with John Hardy jewels. The stark black piping against the muted brocade fabric creates a dynamic display of contrasts, but I wish she saved this ensemble for another event. Against the high octane dresses, it feels a touch out of place.

Coco Rocha: Projecting slinky glamour, the Canadian model showcased the pockets on her Greta Constantine Pre-Fall 2018 dress. There are details aplenty on the gown so I was thankful she lost the coordinating gloves from the lookbook version.

Ruby Rose In Kaufmanfranco – 2018 G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala

Ruby Rose joined fellow Australian actresses Emilie de Ravin and Rose Byrne for the 2018 G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala on Sunday (January 27) in California.

Departing from her beloved black, this Kaufmanfranco proposes grey as a colour option for Ruby’s after-dark dressing with this contemporary cut-out gown.

There is nothing wrong with this gown, but as always, I’m left wanting more from Ruby.

That wow moment always feels like it’s on the horizon, but I’m yet to witness it.

Eva Fehren jewelry completed her look.

Brittany Snow In KaufmanFranco – 2017 CMA Awards

Brittany Snow joined a host of stars for the 2017 CMA Awards at the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday (November 8) in Nashville, Tennessee.

I love how her KaufmanFranco Resort 2017 gown creates a ladylike profile, but it’s really the colour which blows me away here.

While Brittany has been rocking red hair for a while now, never has it looks so gorgeous than against this striking lapis-blue hue.

Earrings by Alezan, rings by Vardui Kara and a matching blue croc clutch completed her red carpet look.

Kristin Cavallari In Kaufmanfranco – 2017 Emmy Awards

Kristin Cavallari was talking all things 2017 Emmy Awards style for the E! ‘Countdown to the Red Carpet’ pre-show on Sunday (September 17) in LA—before she stepped onto the red carpet herself.

Opting for a pretty-in-pink approach, she wore a Kaufmanfranco column gown that offered the sleekness we’d expect from this silhouette, at least from the waist down.

The fit of the silver bodice was what didn’t exactly translate quite so sleekly, as it seemed nearly too small and ill-constructed for her.

Plus, the visible illusion neckline is always a tough sell, as it generally betrays any chance of glamorous elegance—even with her diamond chandelier earrings and glossy waves.

Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

The list of lovelies at Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’ on Friday (September 8) in New York City was seemingly unending, as a number of stars joined Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, and Kim Kardashian.

Gigi Hadid: Her hyper-embellished Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2017 ensemble, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, was so intricate and powerful of a statement that it really didn’t require the rhinestone clogs.

Kaia Gerber: Cindy Crawford’s model daughter was all grown up in a slinky Kristian Aadnevik Fall 2017 mini that had her looking like her mom more and more.

Kendall Jenner: There was little left to the imagination in this Dolce & Gabbana ruched, sheer number. Yet, ironically in spite of the see-through, I couldn’t help but still get a certain sophisticated, glam vibe with the look, which I will chalk up to its silhouette along with Kendall’s Old-Hollywood waves, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and Jimmy Choo sandals.

Eiza Gonzalez In Kaufmanfranco – ‘Baby Driver’ Miami Screening

Eiza González looked white hot at a special screening of her new movie, ‘Baby Driver’ on Thursday (June 15) in Miami following the LA premiere.

She wore a Kaufmanfranco creation which was typically restrained and monochromatic, as per the designer’s aesthetic.

The colour blocking and tailored trouser keep this look classic and chic. I appreciate the addition of a high-low hem which puts a unique spin on this strapless white top.

When so many red carpet attendees are getting it wrong, Eiza got it so right with the length of her trouser. The tapered leg is flattering and works well with the streamlined black heels.

The red lip adds a sexy pop of colour but I’m not convinced by the messy up-do.

Chopard, Vanity Fair and HBO Cannes Parties

A Vanity Fair and HBO dinner party was held on Saturday (May 20) as part of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, with a group of glamorous gals in attendance.

Julianne Moore: While the actress did stick to a darker colour palette, she brought a dose of whimsical fun in this Chanel Resort 2017 embellished gown with multi-hued, feathered pouf sleeves. Exchanging the pink sash for a black one along with a sleek bun and Chopard jewels ensured plenty of her signature modern elegance was brought to the table.

2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is the roundup for the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards, where there were more misses than hits.

Heidi Klum: I’m sure Heidi has worn this Redemption dress before.  There is a strong feeling of deja vu about this look.  I really wish she opted for a blouse-less suit rather than yet another mini.

Noah Cyrus:  Without the name credit on Getty I would’ve never recognised Miley’s younger sister.  Judging this Marc Jacobs Spring 2017 look, I think it is safe to say that the former red head, who is making her own waves in music, appears to share the same stylist as her sister.

Demi Lovato: I have been a huge fan of Demi’s style recently, but this top-to-toe metallic look was overcooked.  There’s too much of one thing going on here.

Jessical Biel In Kaufmanfranco – 2017 Oscars

Who needs an Oscar trophy when you have Jessica Biel?

At the 2017 Oscars, held on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California, she was every bit the golden goddess in a statuesque KaufmanFranco Pre-Fall 2017 gold-leaf, body-con gown.

Giving all new meaning to 24 karat gold, this sultry, shining look was priceless—and her styling of it only elevated it to another stratosphere.

I love how she added the statement collar necklace from Tiffany & Co. You wouldn’t think a dress as sparkling as this would benefit from it, but it really added a fascinating layer of allure.

The same could be said for her sculptural hairstyle.

Gwen Stefani In Kaufmanfranco – ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’

Gwen Stefani made a gleaming evening of it at ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Wednesday (February 15) in New York City.

I’ll admit when I first saw her walk out her silver mirrored Kaufmanfranco Resort 2017 micro mini, I wasn’t sure how she would sit down.

But she and her effervescent personality managed the glitzy dress quite well, and upon closer inspection, she had nude fishnet tights on for her own version of a subtle yet stylish safety net.

Matching embellished Jimmy Choo heels were the perfect companions to this disco ball of a dress that razzle-dazzled in all the right ways.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ LA Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

‘Star Wars The Force Awakens’ LA Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

There were many more stars who attended the world premiere of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ on Monday (December 14) in Hollywood, California, joining Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong’o and Elizabeth Banks.

Gwendoline Christie: BAM. Now this how you rock up to a world premiere. While I’m longing for Gwendoline to wear a look outside her favoured gold, silver, neutral family, I’m memorized by the dramatic effect of this Oscar de la Renta gown.

Sofia Vergara: The actress wore a Victoria Beckham LBD you may remember we’ve seen on Amber Heard.  She styled the look with Charlotte Olympia gold pumps and a rather wonky version of Princess Leia’s signature hair buns.

Naomie Harris In Alexander McQueen & Kaufmanfranco – OMEGA And Naomie Harris Celebrate The Release Of ‘Spectre’

Naomie Harris In Alexander McQueen & Kaufmanfranco - OMEGA And Naomie Harris Celebrate The Release Of 'Spectre'

While Lea Seydoux has hung up her Prada platforms, Naomie Harris’ promo tour for ‘Spectre’ (in conjunction with OMEGA) is still going strong – in more ways than one.

The British actress returned to the red carpet on Monday (November 30) with two more looks.

‘Spectre’ Japan Release Celebration: I love how the 3D floral appliqués along with the paillette embellishments adds dimension to the classic silhouette of this Alexander McQueen Resort 2016 dress. Delicately feminine, yet possessing plenty of drama and intrigue, Naomie just gets better and better for me. The look was styled with Dauphin jewels and silver Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

‘Spectre’ Japan Release Celebration After Party: Naomie’s second look was a striking one-shoulder design by Kaufmanfranco which was distinctively alluring with its proudly defined cut-outs. While I find the dress very appealing, the Sophia Webster sandals steal the spotlight here.

Both looks were styled with OMEGA timepieces.
