THE REAL DEAL
For your festive soirees, take a cue from our favourite fashion darlings
This holiday season, let’s all take a break from ball gowns and barely-there dresses, and focus more on the wearable looks. From Bella Hadid’s Giambattista Valli orange asymmetrical dress at the Vogue Paris Foundation Gala to Jasmine Sanders’ red Fabiana Milazzo textural dress at a Bulgari event, these hot-off-the-runway numbers are perfect for your upcoming holiday parties — as they were on the red carpet.
Make the most of the season by wearing short, sweet, and bright dresses with your favourite jewellery and accessories.
When Bulgari celebrated the re-opening of its New York 5th Avenue flagship store, it was, as expected, star-studded. Victoria’s Secret Angel Josephine Skriver turned up in a gold Khaite Fall 2017 velvet dress, Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, and Bulgari jewellery, of course. Perhaps add a faux fur stole, and you’re all set for the New Year’s countdown.
In the same manner, Messika celebrated the 10th year anniversary of the Move collection during the Paris Fashion Week with some of the big names in fashion. Model Barbara Palvin showed up in a long-sleeved magenta Mugler dress with asymmetrical hem. While aptly dramatic for a New Year’s Eve event, it is still comfortable and convenient enough for a pre-party dinner.
Granted, you will never go wrong with a classic LBD or a cute white number, but give these staple wardrobe items a fresh twist by going sheer or adding some lace and sequin detailing.
To promote her new project, The Long Road Home, with National Geographic, Kate Bosworth worked an all-black look, wearing the Rochas Spring 2018 Segaline sheer dress with tiered skirt and feathered Roger Vivier shoes. She capped her look with de Grisogono High Jewellery ring and earrings.
Also in an all-black ensemble, Rihanna looked every inch a superstar at her Clara Lionel Foundation’s Third Annual Diamond Ball in a black Ralph & Russo gown. She aptly paired her look with Chopard jewellery from the Haute Joaillerie collection.
White and beige. Sheathed and streamlined. These items should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. Not only are the looks chic and luxe, they embody a certain kind of elegance. What’s more, these are the perfect work-straight-to-party looks.
Immaculate in white, Piaget ambassador Jessica Chastain looked radiant at the Ralph Lauren catwalk in New York for the Fashion Week. She accessorised her Ralph Lauren pantsuit with gold and diamond jewellery from Piaget.
Similarly chic in pants, Chinese actress Sandra Ma wore a white silk blouse and white pants at the Cruise 2017/18 Replica Show in Chengdu. She capped her trendy ensemble with Chanel bag and shoes.
