amfAR New York Gala 2019

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon features amfAR New York Gala 2019

The amfAR New York Gala 2019 on Wednesday (February 6) presented bold look after bold look.

Heidi Klum: The supermodel showed off her assets in glittering Paolo Sebastian accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewels. The embroidery attempts to add whimsy.

Kim Kardashian: It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that it was all about the eye-popping cleavage of her vintage Versace look with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Karolina Kurkova: The bold colour and fluid silhouette of her Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2019 look was mesmerizing, and more effective than some of the cleavage-baring styles.

Rosa Salazar In Sonia Rykiel & Michael Kors Collection – ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ World Premiere & Berlin Photocall

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon Features Rosa Salazar In Sonia Rykiel & Michael Kors Collection - 'Alita: Battle Angel' World Premiere & Berlin Photocall

Rosa Salazar joined Dua Lipa and Jennifer Connelly on the red carpet for the ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ world premiere on Thursday (January 31).

What I have noted about Rosa’s style is that she’s not afraid of taking risks in Mulberry and Vivetta, but on this occasion she was serving up Hollywood glamour in Sonia Rykiel.

Showcasing the house’s modern romantic aesthetic, I love how the dramatic custom gown is accented with tiers of sequined ruffles and point d’esprit.

It has all the heavenly qualities of a princess dress, without all the frou, frou-ness! And that colour. Wow.

Ara Vartanian jewels and Jimmy Choo shoes completed her look.

Jodi Balfour In Sonia Rykiel – Premiere Of HBO’s ‘True Detective’ Season 3

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon features Jodi Balfour In Sonia Rykiel - Premiere Of HBO's 'True Detective' Season 3

Angela Sarafyan and Carmen Ejogo were joined on the red carpet for HBO’s ‘True Detective’ Season 3, premiere on Thursday (January 10) in Los Angeles, California by Jodi Balfour.

The South African actress wore a Sonia Rykiel black maxi dress from the Pre-Fall 2018 collection.

At first glance the dress appears simple, but the crystal embellishment that outline the dress plus the appliqués adds major glamour to this red carpet outing.

InStyle And Warner Bros. Golden Globes After Party

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon features InStyle And Warner Bros. Golden Globes After Party

The InStyle and Warner Bros. 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards Post-Party on Sunday (January 6) in Beverly Hills, California, was the most attended party last night, so strap in for the 41 looks.

Rowan Blanchard: There are many of you who haven’t been able to get on board with Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2019 ruffles. This crinkle organza multi layer dress was a tall order for the petite star, but with her new pixie hair, Buccellati jewels and confident attitude, she pulls this off for me, even though I’m not fan of her Roger Vivier sandals.

Kiki Layne: The ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ actress swapped her Dior for Valentino, wearing sparkling tiered whimsy dress from the Spring 2019 collection. This is another dress which may see you divided, but I think she carries if off with great aplomb.

Naomi Watts In Sonia Rykiel – ‘Take Home A Nude’ New York Academy Of Art Benefit

Naomi Watts In Sonia Rykiel - 'Take Home A Nude' New York Academy Of Art Benefit

‘Take Home A Nude’ New York Academy of Art benefit took place at Sotheby’s on Tuesday (October 9) in New York City, with Naomi Watts in attendance.

The actress wore a Sonia Rykiel Resort 2018 two piece look that captures the label’s distinctive 1970s-inspired style.

I love how the striking floral print helps amp up the retro-inspired vision, along with the flared trousers.

You may remember that Sofia Boutella wore this same look back in November last year. Her look felt very much like PJs. All Naomi has done is add a belt, and it has changed the whole dynamic of the look.

2018 American Music Awards

 2018 American Music Awards

Here are the rest of the attendees who joined Jennifer Lopez and Ciara on the red carpet for the 2018 American Music Awards on Tuesday (October 9).

Ella Mai: While I love the mint hue of her Sergio Hudson suit, I’m struggling to believe this was custom made. There’s oversized, then there’s this. And this, ain’t great. From the fit to the tailoring.

Mariah Carey: The diva wore a black body con beaded mesh and fishnet Yousef Aljasmi gown featuring a sweet heart illusion neckline and feather hem. I know what you’re thinking. Typical Mimi. The dress is super dated, and she looks the same as always, and I would agree, but at the same time I absolutely living for this classic, unapologetic moment.

Leighton Meester: I really like this elegant, sophisticated Sonia Rykiel look in theory, but I would’ve loved it more without the v-panel. Messika jewelry completed her look.

Julia Garner In Sonia Rykiel – Netflix Original Series ‘Maniac’ New York Premiere

Julia Garner In Sonia Rykiel - Netflix Original Series ‘Maniac’ New York Premiere

Julia Garner joined Emma Stone on the red carpet for the ‘Maniac’ Season 1 premiere on Thursday (September 20) in New York City.

Her custom knitted dress from Sonia Rykiel lends a tactile spin on classic red carpet attire.

Coloured in blue, my wish for this look is that the under-layer skimmed the floor, instead of stopping halfway.

What I do love is how the sequins and beaded neckline adds interest and attention-to-detail.

Julianne Moore In Sonia Rykiel – Late Night with Seth Meyers

Julianne Moore In Sonia Rykiel - Late Night with Seth Meyers

Julianne Moore has been busy promoting ‘Bel Canto’ and ‘Gloria Bell’ recently, and her latest stop was for the ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ show on Wednesday (September 19).

I will always respect Julianne’s preference to wear black, mostly because she has a knack of keeping things interesting, but when she wears bold colours like this Sonia Rykiel Resort 2019 look, I’m likely to go weak at the knees.

Nodding to classic shirting, this look exudes a high level of chic appeal – especially with those pleats.

The only full-length picture – which was in black and white – shows that Julianne didn’t wear the snakeskin belt, which allowed for a more effortless presentation of the look.

Stacy Martin In Sonia Rykiel & Chanel – ‘Vox Lux’ Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Stacy Martin In Sonia Rykiel & Chanel - ‘Vox Lux’ Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

We’ve seen a lot of Miu Miu on the red carpet during Venice Film Festival, although the one person I expected to wear the Italian brand was Stacy Martin, but she didn’t.

Photocall: For the photocall for ‘Vox Lux’ she joined Natalie Portman on the red carpet wearing a Sonia Rykiel navy suit. Classic and clean tailoring at its best, the shawl lapel, button-less blazer lends the look a contemporary finish.

Premiere: Much like Natalie, I was surprised by Stacy’s look at the premiere. Dripping from head to toe in tiny silver sequins, this Spring 2018 Haute Couture jumpsuit is an exquisite example of Chanel’s signature glamour. Usually more understated when it comes to her red carpet style, this was a dramatic change of pace. Styled with Chanel Fine jewels and silver platforms, even with the bizarre layered trousers, I did find myself swooning at this look.

Blake Lively In Vivienne Westwood & Sonia Rykiel – VMAs Rehearsals

Blake Lively In Vivienne Westwood - VMAs Rehearsals

Before the 2018 MTV VMAs, Blake Lively wore another one of her menswear-inspired looks while returning from rehearsals in New York City on Monday (August 20).

The actress, who has been promoting her upcoming movie ‘A Simple Favor,’ had spent the weekend in impeccably tailored neon green and pastel plaid ensembles, opted for a Vivienne Westwood Fall 2018 soft violet hemp canvas tailored suit with frayed lapels and an oversized Sonia Rykiel white shirt.

She styled her look with Christian Louboutin ‘Crapadonna’ brown and white leather brogue with stud detailing, barely-there makeup and no jewels.

Even though this is very much an off-duty look, I have a feeling that the reception to this will be stone cold.

Or maybe you prefer this more laidback approach, as many had said her weekend looks were too contrived.

My first reaction was “what the…?” But then I realised that it was only the drop-crotch nature of the trousers I objected to.

Rebecca Ferguson In Sonia Rykiel Haute Couture – ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ Paris Premiere

PEOPLE confirmed that Rebecca Ferguson welcomed her daughter this week, and here she is, already back at work for the world premiere of ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ on Thursday (July 12) in Paris, France, alongside Angela Bassett.

Even though the actress is Swedish, I was getting that palpable Parisian je ne sais quoi from this Sonia Rykiel Fall 2018 Haute Couture look.

The feather accented duster gives way to show off her slinky silk LBD for a truly sensual vibe we don’t often see from Rebecca.

Laurence Dacade platforms rounded out the look which felt so right for the occasion.

Sienna Miller In Sonia Rykiel – International Medical Corps Summer Cocktail

Sienna Miller and Milk Studios hosted the International Medical Corps summer cocktail event on Tuesday (June 12) in New York City.

The British actress wore a chiffon dress fresh from Sonia Rykiel’s Resort 2019 collection.

Sienna’s style is usually on the summery side 365 days of the year, so while this is perhaps moodier than we are used to seeing from her, I love how the look is typically feminine in style with the cape overlay and colourful floral print adding a romantic and sensual finish.
