PORTER’s Incredible Women Gala 2018

PORTER's Incredible Women Gala 2018

There were a host of stars who joined Gabrielle Union and Alice Eve to celebrate PORTER’s 3rd annual Incredible Women Gala on Tuesday (October 9) in Los Angeles, California.

Charlize Theron: I really wanted to get excited about this Giambattista Valli Fall 2018 dress, but the top half is throwing me off.  I do love the girlie essence the tiered skirt brings to the look, but that’s about it.

Alison Brie: I know the Brock Collection isn’t loved by all, but I adore the label’s feminine approach and the raw-edges of their asymmetrical ruffles. My only comment on this particular look, is that the bodice seems a tad tight.

Tiffany Haddish: The Emmy-winning actress caught my eye in this Georges Chakra metallic embossed paisley suit. I don’t always get her style choices, but this is easily my favourite look from her this year. Perhaps tailoring is the way to go. Brian Atwood gold ‘Valerie’ pumps, Anabela Chan sustainable lab-grown diamond ring and Gismondi 1754 earrings completed her look.

You Tube Fashion & Beauty Party

YT Fashion & Beauty

There was a bit of everything at the You Tube Fashion & Beauty party during Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday (September 26) in Paris, France.

Bella Hadid: Most people think of Emilio Pucci and think prints and associate the model with sexy, trendy looks. So, this more restrained Fall 2018 dress from the designer with Dorateymur ‘The Investment’ bag was a surprise. The ruching brings some allure.

Victoria Beckham: It’s no surprise that the fashion designer was clad in Victoria Beckham. She is her label’s best model and will likely have everyone wearing pale yellow trousers with diaphanous muted pink tops. Even with the light fabric there is still a strong sense of tailoring.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: The supermodel was in full party mode in Attico Spring 2018. It’s a fun showgirl-inspired piece that might look out of place compared to the previous looks, but others bought into the mood.

2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival

2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival

The 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival was on Friday (September 21) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mariah Carey: Glitz and gams, this custom Bryan Hearns body-hugging mini was a full-on Mariah look tip to toe — fishnets and platforms, included.

Sofia Carson: Also going for a mini moment, Sofia wore an David Koma Resort 2019 LBD with magenta accent sleeves that she matched to her hot-pink shoes. A Yvan Tujenkijan stacked diamond ring finished the look.

Sabrina Carpenter: A third leggy lovely, Sabrina donned a Prabal Gurung Spring 2018 ensemble that balanced the edge of vinyl shorts with the charm of all those blue ruffles.

‘Assassination Nation’ LA Premiere

'Assassination Nation' LA Premiere

Shortly after the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival premiere of ‘Assassination Nation’, Hari Nef, Suki Waterhouse, and a few other starlets were on the red carpet for the LA premiere on Wednesday (September 12).

Hari Nef: Going back to her Gucci zone, Hari was vibrant in this floral-print frock from the Resort 2019 collection that had a retro-forward mood. I loved the intense coral-red lip, but I can’t say the same for the colour of her lemon-yellow shoes.

Suki Waterhouse: On this occasion, Suki’s bohemian style took a princess-y turn with this Christian Dior Cruise 2019 black lace dress that featured an embroidered ottoman belt. She completed the frock with Dior black pumps and a ballet bun. I do thinks she pulls off the girly gracefulness of the look.

2018 MTV VMAs Red Carpet Roundup

2018 MTV VMAs Red Carpet Roundup

There were many more stars rocking all sorts of looks at the 2018 MTV VMAs on Monday (August 20) in New York City.

Grace VanderWaal: This Elkin dress and Eugenia Kim beret look is a precise hybrid of what happens when French schoolgirl meets disco ball.

King Princess: The Canadian tuxedo takes on jumpsuit proportions in this belted-up Adam Selman Fall 2018 design. The literal garter “belt” is one thing, but it’s the black orthopedic shoes that kinda killed it for me.

Kim Petras: The Moschino retro kitsch factor was coming in hot here with this zebra, one-sleeve/glove look, styled with tights and mega spiked Victoria Hayes hoops, that would have placed Kim at a costume party instead of the VMAs had we not known better.

‘Midnight Sun’ LA Premiere

Patrick Schwarzenegger, Quinn Shephard and Bella Thorne graced the red carpet at the ‘Midnight Sun’ LA premiere on Thursday (March 15).

Patrick Schwarzenegger: The actor looked dapper in a Dzojchen suit. The one-button jacket created crisp lines for a thoroughly modern finish. The bright white shirt and trainers enhanced the sharp suave nature of the ensemble with the footwear adding a cool casualness.

Quinn Shephard: The actress really stood out in this trio. Her Christopher Kane Resort 2018 black ruffle sleeve dress looked like it was destined for only the pages of a magazine, but I’m impressed with how well she pulls this off. The right undergarments helps, followed by the confidence in making such an intricate design work. Styled with Giuseppe Zanotti star embellished sandals and a rouge lip, Quinn finds a place on my one-to-watch list.

Bella Thorne: One of the constants of the actress’s style of late has been unpredictability and this Raisa & Vanessa fringe corset dress played into that. It had such a rich opulence with the mix of heavy embellishment. The form-fitting shape had a sensual allure, but it was tempered with the longer skirt and vintage sentiment. She could have overcooked the look with accessories so the Sergio Rossi heels and Norman Silverman jewelry were wise options.

Halsey In Raisa & Vanessa and Galia Lahav Couture – 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Halsey opted for yet another provocative look for the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday (March 11) in Inglewood, California.

While dangerously short, I immediately saw the fun side in her Raisa & Vanessa Fall 2018 animal print two-piece look.

Mostly because my first thought was Halsey is channeling a grown up, rebellious Pebbles Flintstone.

Her second look saw her wear her second look from Galia Lahav’s Spring 2018 Couture collection within a week.

On this occasion she opted for a fetishist vision of the classic little black dress. I much preferred this over her first look.
