Best of the 2016 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

2 May

A busy few days for the red carpet with President Obama’s last White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday and the Met Gala tonight; I have a feeling we might see some repeat faces. We’ve got patterns, print, bold color, black frock delights and everyone’s favorite dog. Gugu Mbatha RawSimply stunning from Gugu Mbatha-Raw in this striking blue and purple floral Lela Rose gown. Even the sheer aspect is not enough to detract from how much I love this dress. Constance ZimmerA funky pattern that gives off 1960s hypnotic vibes and more sheer that in shocking news I don’t hate from Constance Zimmer. While you don’t get to see all the leather aspects; this angle does show off the fun mix of materials that make up Zimmer’s Gomez-Gracia frock.Michelle DockeryI am a sucker for all things yellow particularly on the mustard end and Michelle Dockery’s Cushnie Et Ochs hits all those sweet spots. Plus bonus lipstick points.Karlie KlossAnother style high from Karlie Kloss this week and it wouldn’t surprise me if we see Kloss gracing these pages tomorrow. Here she is in Derek Lam mixing things up in different white tones and fabric textures. Also red lipstick points are awarded. Tracee Ellis RossTracee Ellis Ross is serving up pure 1970s inspired black gown sexy in Jovani and the gold clutch/earrings are super strong accessories choices. Abbi Jacobson and Ilana GlazerAbbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer opt for a more recent decade with the 90s continuing to have its moment and while I have complicated/mostly negative feelings towards the choker resurgence it is working for me with Ilana’s overall look. Carrie Fisher and Tom HiddlestonGenerally if Tom Hiddleston is in anything approximating a suit then he will be the focus of the shot; this is not the case when posing with Carrie Fisher and a nonplussed by the cameras Gary Fisher. The perfect way to close out this red carpet post.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens World Premiere Red Carpet Highlights

15 Dec

Pulling out the sartorial big guns at one of THE red carpet events of 2015 with the world premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. There’s glitz, sheer I don’t hate, adorable pairings, people who aren’t in the film (but still look great nonetheless) and some after party jacket delights.

Lupita Nyong'oLighting up proceedings wherever she goes is Lupita Nyong’o wearing a sparkly Alexandre Vauthier couture gown. The black band across the middle kinda cuts her in two, but she’s pulling it off and continuing her red carpet reign.

Daisy RidleyDaisy Ridley’s already shown that she’s not all about the simple choices and this white tiered Chloe number tiptoes towards a fairy tale frock without feeling too princess. Opting for a soft smoky eye and a 50s curl (seeing Carol everywhere) gives this look an edge and I’m excited to see what Ridley will wear at the London premiere tonight.

Gwendoline ChristieThis might be a Magical Fashion Unicorn situation, but I am so here for Gwendoline Christie rocking all this tulle in a custom Oscar de la Renta. Christie is always a red carpet highlight because she goes there and I am so pleased to see she has gone big for this premiere.

John BoyegaAlso having fun with his look is John Boyega working a purple tux and single leather glove. An homage to Luke Skywalker?

Carrie Fisher and Billie LourdCarrie Fisher does not give any of the fucks and this press tour has been all the better because of it. Swearing up a storm and causing Billie Lourd to pull the best face on the red carpet only makes me heart Carrie Fisher more (if that is possible). Great outfit choices from both ladies.

Oscar IsaacIf you like Oscar Isaac being dreamy, dashing and somewhat flirtatious then this is the press tour for you (see Tumblr for all the examples).

Oscar Isaac and Adam DriverAdorable.

Elizabeth BanksMoving into the ‘people who are not in this film, but look great’ section and these gowns choices shouldn’t be about competing/overshadowing the stars of the movie. Elizabeth Banks stays in her lane looking cool and effortless in this patterned (and pocketed!) Elie Saab frock.

Joe and SofiaNewlyweds Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello have a post honeymoon glow (not that they don’t always look this good) and Vergara’s doing the Leia bun thing (this is the one time I wish I had longer hair so I could rock this hairstyle).

Constance ZimmerBlack and white lines break up the red rose pattern on Constance Zimmer’s dress and maybe the shoes are one black step too far (I think the third strap is the issue), but I like the overall idea of this ensemble. And any excuse to think about/mention UnREAL is fine by me.

Daisy Ridley and Billie LourdBack to those in the movie and the after party with excellent jacket work from Daisy Ridley and Billie Lourd. I kinda think only one of these jackets was meant for the outfit in question.

Lupita and DavidOnce again Lupita edges up an outfit with a jacket and here she’s gone for leather over quilted; I am so here for this choice. Plus we get a closer look at the sparkly detail of her dress. Also going for leather is David Oyelowo and yep this is really good party pairing.
