Laura Dern In Thom Browne – 2018 Emmy Awards

Laura Dern In Thom Browne - 2018 Emmy Awards

Laura Dern offered up quite the risk-taking look at the 2018 Emmy Awards on Monday (September 17) in LA.

No, it wasn’t body-baring or particularly avant-garde. But, the custom Thom Browne set was a bit bizarre, what with the combo of the silk top and embroidered lace bustier dress — not to mention the string of pearls and big retro curls.

Sometimes fashion risks pay off; sometimes they don’t. I’ll have to place this look in the latter category, as the quirky factor didn’t work for me here. But, I can still appreciate her experimental flair.

‘Widows’ Toronto International Film Festival Premiere

'Widows' Toronto International Film Festival Premiere

An ‘A’ list cast for ‘Widows’ took to the red carpet for the premiere during 2018 Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday (September 8) in Canada.

Elizabeth Debicki: If Cate Blanchett is the queen of all things Armani Privé, then Elizabeth is the princess. The Australian actress was oozing old Hollywood glamour in this black silk velvet Fall 2018 gown with a gold bodice embroidered with champagne-coloured crystals which was a perfect testament to her graceful style. Birks jewels – a favourite of the Duchess of Sussex – completed her look.

Colin Farrell: Formerly known as devotee to Dolce & Gabbana, it appears the Irish actor now has a penchant for the fine tailoring of Dior Men. With guys like Chadwick Boseman taking risks, and Timothée Chalamet making a bold return to the red carpet this weekend, you might not feel too connected to this look, but you should never frown upon classic style.

Viola Davis: In calling Viola’s black Elizabeth Kennedy dress basic, I do so with all due respect. It was the perfect canvas for her to be creative and with her House of Yimama tribal choker. Not only does it bring so much colour, culture and vibrancy to her look, it also shows her flare for style.

2018 Black Girls Rock! Awards

2018 Black Girls Rock! Awards

There were plenty more gorgeous girls who hit the red carpet at the Black Girls Rock! 2018 Awards on Sunday (August 26) in Newark, New Jersey.

Amandla Stenberg: Predicting Amandla’s style is damn near impossible at the moment. But I love how she keeps us on our toes. This Thom Browne Fall 2018 striped suit sees her work a boyish look, which may look like it shrunk in the wash, but seeing how the look appeared on the runway, she managed to make it her own.

Leomie Anderson: Like Naomi Campbell, Leomie brought plenty of glamour to the event wearing a gorgeous yellow Galvan London satin dress styled with spiked Christian Louboutin shoes and Tiffany & Co. jewels.

Lena Waithe: The ‘Ready Player One’ actress was ready to rock in Prada wearing a look which was perfectly suited to her no-fuss style.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

It’s been a busy week when it comes to mens fashion, so here is our roundup.

Jared Leto: The ‘Thirty Seconds to Mars’ star made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ where he donned a Gucci Cruise 2019 look consisting of a technicolor sweater and fiyah red trouser. Let’s hope that bin bag contains some of his less fortunate red carpet looks.

Channing Tatum: The actor was recently in London to present ‘Magic Mike Live’. While I’m not usually a fan of cropped trousers on men, this Arcady pair was looking very sharp, especially when paired with his palm-print shirt. Timberland shoes completed his look.

Winston Duke: The one thing I wanted ahead of the 2018 World Cup was to get my hands on the Nigerian football kit (and my heritage is Sierra Leone), but the entire collection sold out in around 3 minutes. The Trinidadian American wore his Nike tracksuit, in true naija fashion with a gold chain plus high-top sneakers.

Tessa Thompson In Tingyue Jiang & Thom Browne – Build Series & ‘Sorry To Bother You’ New York Premiere

It would appear that Tessa Thompson is undergoing a change of direction style-wise.

Many of you weren’t onboard with her Rosie Assoulin MTV Awards look, so I’m intrigued to find out how you feel about these two latest offerings.

Build Series: If you watched the BOF Summit talk with Elizabeth Saltzman, Jason Bolden and Karla Welch, they all said in unison that they love discovering and breaking new designers. It appears that Tessa’s stylists, Wayman + Micah share that sentiment, as they outfitted Tessa in a dress by Parsons MFA graduate Tinygue Jiang. What I love about this piece is the imperfect elements, like the ripped shoulder and jagged edges. The look feels so raw and exposed, yet beautiful and fashion forward. Brother Vellies ‘Palms’ pump in ostrich feathers with plexiglass heel plus Dylanlex jewels completed the look, along with a single strand of white beads in her braids.

‘Sorry To Bother You’ New York Premiere: There are so many elements to her Thom Brown Spring 2018 look, that I’m not sure where to start. The lines are continually blurred between women’s and menswear, and no one does this better than Thom Browne. I love the semi-sheerness of the plaid fabric and the suspended skirt for a truly unique look. The point at which I found myself struggling was the accessories. The Thom Browne shoes barely pass, but the briefcase attempts to take this down a costumey path. Perhaps had the bag been smaller, I would’ve been on board. Carelle rings completed her look.

Tina Fey In Thom Browne – 2018 Tony Awards

The Tony Awards is all about the razzle dazzle, and Tina Fey most definitely did the latter in her Thom Browne custom gown on Sunday night (June 10).

The designer is known for reinventing classics with unique proportions, silhouettes and preppy detailing, but on this occasion his sequin silver fair isle embroidered tromp l’oeil gown with ostrich feathers and beaded fridge showed that he can just as easily do classic evening glamour.

Some might have expected some quirks or signature details, but I love how he created this stunning look with the event and client in mind.

Models @ 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards

In our final sweep of the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards red carpet, we focus on some of the models in attendance.

Martha Hunt: As far as unique looks goes, Martha’s Thom Browne Fall 2018 caged bustier dress was on par with Lupita Nyongo’s. In terms of creativity and styling, this was one of my favourites of the night. Atelier Swarovski earrings completed her look.

Gigi Hadid: Looking like a work of art in Versace Fall 2018, the model stunned in a colourful graphic brushstroke print top and leggings giving off a catsuit-like effect. I know many of you aren’t fans of Gigi’s style, but I”m sure you’ll love that she opted for something a lot less predictable on this occasion.

Kendall Jenner: Speaking of predictable, there was something about this feathered Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2017 Couture look that felt very déjà vu; like she’s worn something similar before.
