Comic-Con 2017 Weekend Roundup

A constellation of more stars were at Comic-Con 2017 in San Diego, California throughout this past weekend.

Naomi Watts: Attending the ‘Twin Peaks: A Damn Good Panel,’ Naomi played to a vintage spirit in this Roksanda Resort 2018 colour-block design. Perhaps it was the combination of hues that had somewhat of an aging effect on her.

Krysten Ritter: Taking a graphic, black-and-white approach, Krysten was at ‘Marvel’s The Defenders’ press line in a Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2017 dress. I love the striking attitude of the look in partnership with her ruby-red lip and Kurt Geiger booties for a touch of rebel edge.

Kaley Cuoco: This exploded Alice + Olivia Resort 2018 pinstripe shirt dress translated more like an afterthought with the slouchy, undone front and the head-scratching, chunky shoes when Kaley stopped by ‘The Big Bang Theory’ panel.

Aubrey Plaza in Topshop & 3.1 Phillip Lim – Comic Con 2017

Aubrey Plaza has also been in the mix at Comic-Con 2017, where she attended the Entertainment Weekly and FX After Dark event on Thursday (July 20) before swinging by the ‘Legion’ screening and Q&A on Friday (July 21).

Entertainment Weekly and FX After Dark: Going for a sweetly casual look, she wore a flirty Topshop floral-print romper that had its charm. But I cannot say that the white Tod’s shoes would have been my first pick.

‘Legion’ Screening: As for her second look, the Tod’s shoes again were a bit befuddling as the orange hue was a strange contrast with her playfully chic 3.1 Phillip Lim ensemble. I think it would have been far better served with a complementary sandal for a more streamlined approach. But, you cannot fault her for having some fun.

Danai Gurira In Marco de Vincenzo – Comic-Con 2017: Marvel Studios ‘Black Panther’ Presentation

Danai Gurira joined Lupita Nyong’o for the Marvel Studios ‘Black Panther’ presentation during San Diego Comic-Con 2017 on Saturday (July 22).

Donning a Marco de Vincenzo Fall 2017 dress, she played to the plucky charm of the design that fused a vintage-sophisticated silhouette with cheeky, artsy illustration.

What you cannot see here is the geometric design shaven into her hairstyle, only reinforcing the quirky, eccentric vibes of the frock.

Dania Ramirez In Polite & Sandro – Comic-Con 2017: ‘Once Upon A Time’ Press Line & Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con Party

Two days, two dresses for Dania Ramirez at Comic-Con 2017 in San Diego, where she attended the ‘Once Upon A Time’ panel on Saturday (July 22) before heading to the Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con Party to join Tessa Thompson later that day.

‘Once Upon A Time’ Press Line: I adore the whimsical flirtation of this feminine Polite Spring 2017 corset frock enlivened by its polka dots and abstracted camo print. With the big, bold patterning, it had a nearly cartoonish-inspired chicness that was simply made for Comic-Con. Metallic Loriblu sandals added just the right glint to wrap up the look.

Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con Party: While this Sandro lace dress was a perfectly suitable LBD, it wasn’t all that exciting—especially not after her fun first look. So, I’m glad she upped the ante with her red mini handbag, Racine Caree lace-up heels, and a loose ponytail.

Millie Bobby Brown In Victoria Victoria Beckham & Kate Spade New York – Comic-Con 2017: Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ Press line

Also at Comic-Con 2017 in San Diego, Millie Bobby Brown attended Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ press conference on Saturday (July 22).

Darling-chic is what the young starlet has been doing best, and this Victoria Victoria Beckham Pre-Fall 2016 frock styled with a Kate Spade New York sleeveless, white blouse fit the bill.

I love the girly silhouette of the dress coupled with the charm of its cheeky, mod patterning, which she echoed in her block-heel sandals.

Lighthearted and appropriate. Would you agree?

Lupita Nyong’o In Elie Saab – Comic-Con 2017: Marvel Studios ‘Black Panther’ Presentation

Also making a return to the scene, Lupita Nyong’o was at the Marvel Studios ‘Black Panther’ Presentation during San Diego Comic-Con 2017 on Saturday (July 22).

Her affinity for bold hues has not waned, that is, if this Elie Saab Resort 2018 ensemble is any indication.

This matching top, trousers and duster is how Elie Saab does dressed-down, with a crave-worthy mix of wavy, vibrant green shades sufficing for sparkling sequins and extensive embellishment.

But there was something refreshing about this laid-back sense of glamour and flowing movement of the pieces.

The gold Alexis Bittar choker necklaces were unnecessary, although I was fully expecting to see a brighter, colourful lip here.

Cate Blanchett In Monse – Comic-Con 2017: Marvel Studios ‘The Thor: Ragnarok’ Presentation

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen Cate Blanchett on the red carpet, so I was fully looking forward to welcoming the style queen back to her throne.

The look she debuted for ‘The Thor: Ragnarok’ presentation on Saturday (July 22) at Comic-Con 2017 in San Diego wasn’t exactly what I had expected, though, from the sartorially elegant actress.

But, leave it to Cate to take even Monse’s affinity for deconstructed, oversized menswear-inspired designs down a more put-together route. However, I will be the first to admit that my initial gut reaction to the Resort 2018 blazer and baggy racing stripe pants was not entirely one of excitement.

Yet, the chic nonchalance with which she wore the separates—complete with her smoky eye and silver Tod’s sneakers—did grow on me, especially as this was a Comic-Con panel.

What do you make of it all—chic or sloppy?
