Thandie Newton In Richard Quinn – Virgin TV BAFTA Television Awards

After her dazzling moment at the ‘SOLO: A Story Wars Story’ LA premiere, I was very much looking forward to seeing Thandie Newton again. She was back on the red carpet at the Virgin TV BAFTA Television Awards on Sunday (May 13) in London, alongside Vanessa Kirby and Claire Foy.

This Richard Quinn gown was a vivacious look. It had a summery sentiment while still being formal enough for the occasion.

The asymmetrical gathered silhouette had a playful feel that was soft yet structured. It was dramatic enough that she didn’t need the coordinating pieces, although, I could see her successfully carrying off the arm covering.

Do you miss the gloves?


Amal Clooney In Richard Quinn – 2018 Met Gala

Amal Clooney was another early arrival at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday night (May 7) in New York City, joining Olivia Munn.

Many might have expected the co-host to go down the gown route, but she surprised in a Richard Quinn foiled bustier with trousers and a train.

It is spellbinding and thoroughly modern with the sharp tailoring juxtaposing the pooling train.

Lorraine Schwartz heightened the drama.

Even husband George Clooney is swept up in the magic.

Irving Penn Exhibition Private Viewing Hosted by Vogue

A private viewing, hosted by Vogue, for the Irving Penn exhibition at the Grand Palais was held on Sunday (October 1) during Paris Fashion Week.

Adwoa Aboah: Taking a break from walking the runways at Paris Fashion Week, Adwoa posed in a Richard Quinn Spring 2018 look that offered an invigorating, happy mix of ditzy florals. You would think with so many bold, competing prints that this would translate as disjointed. But, on the contrary, I loved this look on Adwoa, and I also credit its success to her minimal approach to the styling, with a black sandal and red pout all she needed. Flower power, indeed.

Kylie Minogue: I think it’s safe to say that Kylie put this Alice McCall ‘More Than A Woman’ fringe gown to work for her—as it was made to be spun around. As fun as it was, I was a bit tassel fatigued and the muted, mauve-pink colour wasn’t my favourite for the vibrancy of the entertainer, but she attempted to bring a splash of vividness via her lipstick.

Dita von Teese: With a look that riffed on the field-of-poppies print from the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2017 Couture collection, Dita maximized proportions with this look. I have mixed feelings on the balloon sleeves, as they might be lumped into a costume-y circus category. But, the colours were striking in contrast to the black pencil skirt.
