2018 Evening Standard Theatre Awards

2018 Evening Standard Theatre Awards

Elegance and drama were common themes at the 2018 Evening Standard Theatre Awards on Sunday (November 18) in London. Celebrities joined Jenna Coleman, Claire Foy and Letitia Wright.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge: The evening’s presenter was perfectly coordinated with the backdrop in custom Richard Quinn, Gina shoes and Cartier jewelry. She still shone in her own right thanks to the alluring draped neckline and rich explosion of colourful blooms.

Sophie Okonedo: The winner of the Natasha Richardson Award for Best Actress projected ladylike refinement in Emilia Wickstead Fall 2018. It might not have been an obvious red carpet choice, but I am caught up with the open neckline and how the shoulders merge into the choker detail.

Suki Waterhouse: In Brock Collection Spring 2019, she presented a more unabashed vintage femininity than her typical style but she radiates in the outfit. The flared hem balances the oversized sleeves for a charming finish.

Cate Blanchett In Maison Margiela Haute Couture – ‘The House With A Clock In Its Walls’ Rome Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett In Maison Margiela Haute Couture - ‘The House With A Clock In Its Walls’ Rome Film Festival Premiere

What do you do when the world is expecting something?

You give them something else.

Cate Blanchett has never been predictable, yet I was trying to pick out which look she was going to select from Armani Prive for ‘The House With A Clock In Its Walls’ Rome Film Festival premiere this evening (October 19).

But on this occasion, she had other ideas.

When I saw Cate in this custom Maison Margiela Spring 2018 Haute Couture gown by John Galliano, I felt like the future of fashion had finally arrived.

The prismatic pleated fan takes this look into another realm, one with flying cars and robots dogs we were promised in ‘Back the Future’.

How does she do it? Mind-blown.

‘Suspiria’ London Premiere

'Suspiria' London Premiere

Mia Goth, Tilda Swinton and Dakota Johnson graced the red carpet this evening (October 16) for the London Film Festival premiere of ‘Suspiria’.

Am I the only one covered in goosebumps?

This is such a powerful picture of female unity and strength, that it renders me breathless.

Mia Goth: The actress tends to favour black, so I’m glad she opted for this silver lame Givenchy Spring 2018 Haute Couture gown. With a simple bodice being the starting point, the design falls dramatically into, tiered ruffles which shimmering under the lights which I adore.

Tilda Swinton: Carrying on the oversized suit trend we saw from Lady Gaga last night, this black double breasted suit sits firmly in Tilda’s wheelhouse. I’m glad she didn’t follow the sparkling dress code here. I love the balance this Maison Margiela Artisanal designed by John Galliano suit creates in a sea of silver. Delfina Delettrez jewels completed her look.

Dakota Johnson: With her silver dress memo received and reciprocated, the actress made me go weak at the knees in this Gucci sequin gown. I’m sure even those of you are not huge fans of sequin drenched gowns, will share the love for this magnificent trompe l’oeil piece.

Rihanna In Maison Margiela Artisanal by John Galliano – 2018 Met Gala

Never one to not rock a theme, Rihanna fully embraced the ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ inspiration at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

After all, as one of this year’s co-chairs, it is kind of required that she be a fashion queen of the gala.

This Maison Margiela Artisanal by John Galliano creation was a masterwork—and certainly inspired by the Pope’s garb, most notably in the miter.

Yet, there would be no Pope-like conservative modesty of form in this ornately embellished and bejeweled minidress with a built-in skirt. As RiRi has been into oversized silhouettes lately, the slouchy robe reflected that component of her style while still staying true to the look’s Catholic influence.

Maria Tash, Gilan, and Narcia Pheres jewels completed the gloriously thematic look.
