Melissa Saved Her Best Look for the LA Premiere

Melissa McCarthy is in full promo mode with the all-girl remake of "Ghostbusters", hitting theaters Friday July 14th. And with Melissa's LA Premiere outfit on point I can't wait for future press outtings. Melissa opted for a custom made floral embroidered cocktail dress with belted waist, and 3/4 length sleeves. Simple nude sandals, beachy waves, bold lash line, and pink lip completed her look. All I can say is I am obsessed with this look!

This May Be Blake's Best Look Yet

Blake Lively was spotted leaving her NYC hotel en route to promote her upcoming film, Woody Allen's Café Society. She wore a peach and nude body-con cocktail dress with simple sandals, multiple earrings, and a patched statement tote. Keeping her pregnancy glow front and center, her makeup artist kept her fresh faced and glowing by adding a bold lash line and a soft bubble-gum pink lip. Just as The Shallows press comes to an end, Café Society starts, which means more Blake Lively looks! Whoo hoo!

Alicia Vikhander made a HUGE statement on the Red Carpet of the European Premiere of Jason Bourne at Leicester Square in London yesterday. The Brand Ambassador chose a sequined and ruffled gown with a column-like fit, and a thigh-high slit to show off some leg. A messy side pony, natural makeup, and simple jewellery completed her look. Allowing her gown to take center stage and Alicia to steal the Red Carpet show.

It's Couture Week: Fendi Fall 2016 Couture

"With the couture shows wrapping up in Paris, Fendi shuttled guests by chartered plane to Rome for another haute fourrure show today. They secured the Trevi Fountain of La Dolce Vita fame for the event, fresh off a $2.4 million, one-and-a-half-year rehab. The fountains turned on, and the models started their march over a see-through runway built on top of its pools. It will go down as one of the most majestic show venues ever; few come close, but among them was Fendi’s 2007 show on the Great Wall. If there was a drawback about this location, it was that the models weren’t nearly close enough for guests to appreciate the sensational workmanship that went into the show’s 46 looks. The 5,000 hand-cut holes that turned the rose-color Persian lamb of a long dress into lace. The lynx jacket that was too precious to dye, but was dyed a delicate shade of pink all the same. The absolutely miniscule squares of mink that took 1,200 work hours to stitch together mosaic-style into a magical forest scene. Crocheted dresses on a base of tulle were embroidered with swatches of long-hair mink and fringed leather, while lace dresses were appliquéd with flowers hand-cut from sheared mink. Pull them off the rack, as a Fendi rep did at a press conference, and they felt almost weightless, evanescent even. “This is what Fendi is all about. No other fur house in the world does it, or could do it,” Lagerfeld said in an interview." -

Kendall Walks on Water for Fendi's 90th Anniversary

 After opening the Fall 2016 Fendi Couture Presentation last night at the legendary Trevi Fountain in Rome, Italy, Kendall Jenner sipped on champagne and sat with Karl Lagerfeld at the 90th Anniversary Dinner of the Fashion House. She looked super young and fresh in a Resort 2017 / Pre-Spring Fendi off-the-should stripped mini dress. Completing Kendall's easy breezy beautiful look were gold peep-toe shooties, a slick back up-do, natural make-up, and a red statement lip.

It's Couture Week: Zuhair Murad Fall 2016 Couture

"Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? “Bohemian Rhapsody” was released when Zuhair Murad was in preschool, so he’s too young to actually remember the ’70s. But since Queen’s power ballad has always resonated with the designer, he put it on the soundtrack and gamely offered up his own version of hippie chic, adding velvet capes, macramé embroideries, and thigh-high boots to the mix. Hats gave the show unexpected attitude. “She’s young, modern, and rock, but elegant at the same time,” Murad offered backstage, adding, “She’s also rich. Her dresses are full of jewels, transparency, and tattoo ornamentation.” When not rocking a ruffled black Chantilly lace dress, the Murad girl appeared in a flamboyant parade of velvet, crepe, tulle, and chiffon dresses in such colors as cyan, purple, plum, iris, and honeysuckle. While one can only admire his enthusiasm, some of the designer's strongest ideas were the simplest ones. Murad is renowned for his spectacular bridal gowns. This time, he decided to leave classic white by the wayside in favor of an off-the-shoulder dress in latte beige. "I wanted to make it a little bit vintage, like when you look at old photos," the designer explained. "Boho gypsy chic is all about attitude." -

It's Couture Week: Giambattista Valli Fall 2016 Couture

"One reason Valli’s front row is so well stocked with pretty young things—who were this season joined by an emotive Céline Dion, clapping enthusiastically and shouting “Bravo!” at the end—is that he’s tapped into what the party set likes to wear. As a rule, it’s ornate and it’s body-confident. That meant that the micro lengths were balanced by outsized sleeves, exaggerated ruffled shoulders, even the occasional neck ruff. A few minis were accessorized with floor-scraping tulle trains—one part regal, and the other part Stephanie Seymour in Guns N' Roses’ “November Rain.” When dresses reached the floor, they tended to be diaphanous and pleated, draped goddess style from an asymmetric neckline or sweeping from both shoulders like a cape. Valli concluded, like he usually does, with a trio of tiered and flounced tulle confections so grand that they might’ve intimidated Empress Joséphine" -

It's Couture Week: Elie Saab Fall 2016 Couture

"The knock on Saab has been he’s got a look and he sticks to it, with one collection blending into the next. Over the past couple of ready-to-wear seasons he has made an effort to inject youthfulness into his aesthetic. This was an exceptional Elie Saab collection because of how expressive it was. Birds flocked on the skirt of a gown with a black velvet bodice; hearts appeared as prints and as crystal embroideries. And there were all manner of flowers—picked out in yellow, light blue, bordeaux, and black beads on tulle; embroidered in 3-D on Chantilly lace; and appliquéd in watercolor silk on another graceful gown. That hardly sounds like a novelty at couture, where flowers are many designers’ stock in trade, but Saab has always preferred a monochromatic look, most often with shimmery tone-on-tone embroidery. His embrace of change augurs well for his Upper East Side store, and for the brand in general." -
