Tracee Ellis Ross In Valentino Haute Couture – 2018 Emmy Awards

Tracee Ellis Ross In Valentino Haute Couture - 2018 Emmy Awards

When Tracee Ellis Ross steps out on a red carpet, she often brings the drama. She didn’t disappoint at the 2018 Emmy Awards this evening (September 17).

The Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series nominee turned heads in a Valentino Fall 2018 Haute Couture dress. Even without the floral headpiece it’s a tricky look, but she managed to pull off the voluminous style — neon makeup and all.

My wish is that she didn’t have to pose holding the neckline up. The outfit should stand on its own.

I’m curious to know how this will be received.

Rihanna’s 4th Annual Diamond Ball

Rihanna's 4th Annual Diamond Ball

There were plenty more stars who attended Rihanna’s 4th Annual Diamond Ball benefitting The Clara Lionel Foundation on Thursday (September 13) in New York City.

Teyana Taylor: The singer will always provide a talking point, whether she’s half naked or serving up plenty of drama. It was the latter on this occasion, as she clearly meant business in this formal pinstriped tuxedo dress from Moschino’s Fall 2018 collection. You weren’t fans of how Damaris Lewis presented this look, but does adding the shirt and tie sell the look the second time around.

Donald Glover: Having been part of the Gucci gang for so long, the actor opted for Dior Men Spring 2019 on this occasion. I love the teal-blue shade and the relaxed fit which made him look every inch a modern gent.

Issa Rae: All that glitters was gold for Issa Rae in Valentino Resort 2019. With that much bling you would’ve thought she would skip on the jewelry, but she added a stunning pair of Mateo earrings and gold Stuart Wetizman sandals.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

It’s time to check in on those men that have been out and about at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival over the past few days.

Robert Pattinson: At the ‘High Life’ premiere, Robert wore a Dior Men by Kim Jones Spring 2019 three-piece suit that had quite the dandy demeanor, especially with the floral dress shirt.

Kit Harington: Looking quite formal, Kit was polished in a Givenchy tuxedo at the ‘The Death and Life of John F. Donovan’ premiere.

Mahershala Ali: Sometimes we roll our eyes at sunglasses on the red carpet, but on this occasion, his Jimmy Choo shades really added some fun, quirky edge to this Ermenegildo Zegna Couture cropped suit at the ‘Green Book’ premiere. That teal pocket square did, too.

Keira Knightley In Valentino Haute Couture – The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Keira Knightley In Valentino Haute Couture - The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

As you know, I was feeling a little unmoved about Keira Knightley’s looks during Toronto Film International Festival, but things took an upturn for her guest appearance on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.’

This is MUCH more like it.

While Keira is the best ambassador (aside from Vanessa Paradis of course), you pretty much know what you are going to get.

With this Valentino Fall 2018 Haute Couture outfit, I’m getting a sprinkle of everything.

Colour (other than black, white, or navy), a touch of sparkle and a whole new attitude.

‘The Public’ Toronto International Film Festival Premiere

'The Public' Toronto International Film Festival Premiere

Gabrielle Union, Jena Malone and Taylor Schilling attended the ‘The Public’ premiere during 2018 Toronto International Film Festival at Roy Thomson Hall on September 9, 2018 in Toronto, Canada.

Gabrielle Union: We’ve seen a lot of this Valentino Fall 2018 bold floral print, yet somehow this dress felt fresh on Gabrielle; perhaps it has something to do with her styling which included Stuart Weitzman black suede ‘Rapture’ booties. I love how her cult Gabriela Hearst ‘Nina’ gold bag picked up the floral accents on her dress, while the pink opal Irene Neuwirth earrings rounded out her look.

Jena Malone: Some might not like the opera gloves that Jena added to her Emilia Wickstead Pre-Fall 2018 snake-print dress, but dress is pretty straightforward, so I think the gloves add some character.

Taylor Schilling: When it comes to hair and makeup, Taylor nailed this look. But her Mulberry Spring 2018 dress is one of my least favourite to grace this festival, or even this year. This is such a shame as the colour is gorgeous on her, but everything from the waist down needed to be reconsidered. Magenta Casadei sandals and Hearts On Fire Jewelry completed her look.

Naomi Watts In Valentino – Venice Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Naomi Watts In Valentino - Venice Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Naomi Watts graced the red carpet for the final time for the award ceremony that closed the 2018 Venice Film Festival on Saturday (September 8) in Italy.

The actress wore a Valentino Resort 2019 tulle gown featuring a butterfly which somehow felt symbolic, as a butterfly marks the end of a journey.

And what a journey this has been for Naomi, who has taken risks, and left us in awe of her grace and beauty during this festival.

Did she leave the best to last?
