Lorraine Schwartz ‘Eye Bangles’ Collection Launch

‘The Eye Bangles’ Lorraine Schwartz launch, in addition to her signature Against Evil Eye Collection, was celebrated on Tuesday (March 13) in Hollywood. Naturally her biggest fans Rita Ora, Blake Lively and Sofia Vegara were in attendance.

Rita Ora: In recent times when we see La Perla looks on the red carpet, they tend to be suits (think Joanne Froggatt, Fan Bingbing and Gwyneth Paltrow), but Rita Ora opted embrace the luxury brand for what it’s historically know for – lingerie. Even with the robe covering most of the look, there is no escaping the fact that she is wearing a nightgown underneath. Thankfully her Lorraine Schwartz jewels provide some distraction.

Blake Lively: Probably the designer biggest fan, the actress opted to keep things simple with a Brandon Maxwell Spring 2018 LBD, allowing the jewels to be the focus. I love how her medley of Lorraine Schwartz bracelets complement her Christian Louboutin ‘ Galeria’ sandals.

Kim Kardashian: Without the oversized blazers and the pink hair, I have to say this was a surprisingly simple and refreshing look for Kim.

2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet Roundup

The crush of beauties continued in full force on the red carpet of the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party last night (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California.

Odeya Rush: The young starlet was a vision in this neon-bright chartreuse Vivienne Westwood Couture gown. The sculptural, one-shoulder ruffle detail is nothing we haven’t seen before, but the bold colour made the look feel dynamic. I do think she could have offered up a more youthful beauty look—and less bronzer—to accompany the sophisticated sass of the gown.

Dree Hemingway: There was a delicate daintiness to this Valentino Pre-Fall 2018 nude, embellished lace gown, which Dree echoed in her minimal hair and makeup. The yellow-tinged, ribbon belt made all the difference in breathing a bit of life into the neutral dress, with Repossi jewels to complete the look.

Lea Michele In La Perla – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

Lea Michele sizzled at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California, joining Heidi Klum.

‘The Mayor’ actress wasn’t concerned about showing chest and legs in a slinky La Perla Pre-Fall 2018 gown.

There was plenty of skin, but it was the textured gold fabric that caught my attention. The textile looked like gilded feathers thanks to the placement of each square paillette.

The minimal accessories allowed the shimmering panel to come to the forefront with the cuff playing off the splendor of the dress.

‘Black Panther’ World Premiere Menswear Roundup

There were plenty of men in the mix at the star-studded world premiere of Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ on Monday (January 29) in Hollywood, California.

Chadwick Boseman: He plays the title character in the film, and his Emporio Armani Spring 2018 look was indeed royal. I love the relaxed-regal approach of the double-breasted metallic floral jacket styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Cyprien’ boots’ and David Yurman accessories.

Donald Glover: Go bold or go home. Leave it to Donald to positively command an orange power suit. This stylized Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2018 design was loud and proud in all the right ways—from the panther-esque printed shirt, to the monogrammed, embroidered badge with his initials on the jacket, and right down to the slipper shoes.

Daniel Kaluuya: I like that Daniel wore a traditional Ugandan kanzu to the red carpet, styling the formalwear with a burgundy Burberry Soho blazer, Christian Louboutin loafers, and David Yurman accessories.

Anna Kendrick In Balmain & La Perla – 2018 Grammy Awards

Anna Kendrick was also at the 2018 Grammy Awards tonight (January 28) in New York City.

Like Eve, Anna skipped a dress in favour of tailoring with this Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 plaid suit. But, this is nothing new for the actress who’s worn a suit to the Grammys before.

Boudoir met boardroom with this look, and here I would argue that the seductive appeal of the lace La Perla ‘Quartz Garden’ bodysuit necessary to balance the boxier shapes.

Pink Casadei pumps were an unexpected addition to the ensemble, offering a flirty, girlish finish to its sultrier connotations.

Bebe Rexha In La Perla – 2018 Grammy Awards

Bebe Rexha struck a sultry pose at the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) at Madison Square Garden in New York City, joining Eve and Janelle Monae.

The ‘Meant to Be’ singer showed off her curves in a La Perla Spring 2018 gown.

The fit and intricate detailing speaks to the designer’s skill of enhancing a women’s shape, but I am at a loss with the nude tulle on the cups.

When I first saw this, I thought she was having a wardrobe malfunction and revealing cleavage enhancers.

Her styling of the look was more successful with Lorraine Schwartz jewels echoing the pattern on the dress.

The white rose affixed to her clutch is in support of the #TimesUp movement.

Gwyneth Paltrow In La Perla – La Perla Pre-Fall 2018 Dinner

Gwyneth Paltrow joined La Perla for an intimate dinner in New York City celebrating the brand’s Pre-Fall 2018 women’s ready-to-wear collection designed by Creative Director, Julia Haart. at The Lobster Club on Monday (November 27).

I’m sure some of you will notice this third occurrence of Gwynnie in a black suit in recent days.

But, I will never complain when the ode to androgyny looks this sharply alluring.

Her La Perla Spring 2018 suit was plenty seductive, and I love how the tailored plunge effect of the blazer counteracted the roomier, wide-leg proportions of the trousers.

Plus, I loved her glossy waves, which contributed to the radiance of her fresh-faced smile.
