Bella and Dua Deliver Yet Another Memorable Joint Style Moment

Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa have each carved out distinctive personal styles, but there are some similarities they share. Neither of these two Gen-Z poster girls is afraid to take a fashion risk, whether in a buzzy new-season look or carefully chosen vintage. They’re also both inspired by the Y2K aesthetic: every look they serve has a hint of nostalgia.

To celebrate the first birthday of Gigi Hadid’s daughter, Khai, over the weekend, the duo packed a punch in printed pieces that reflected what was reported to be a “silly skirt or silly pants” dress code for the bash. Dua arrived in a look from Thom Browne’s Resort 2022 collection, styled with the designer’s playful dog handbag and a pair of chunky tartan heels from Nodaleto’s recent collaboration with Marc Jacobs’s Heaven line. Bella opted for a “silly skirt” too, wearing a psychedelic flared midi, a black tank, cropped white shirt and sculptural boots.

Bella and Dua – who is dating Bella’s brother, Anwar – were photographed together in the UK back in August, where they flitted between A-list watering holes Soho Farmhouse and Chiltern Firehouse to mark Dua’s 26th birthday. When in Oxfordshire, they wore cult trainers, summer boots and trophy accessories. Dua flew the flag for homegrown talent in designs by Mowalola – including an acid-green cow-print look – Maximilian, Martine Rose and Cro-Che. Bella was an honorary Brit in Alexander McQueen, and also dressed in pieces from Comme des Garçons, Eytys and Masha Popova.

For a city outing in London, they explored their grungier sides: Bella wore leather trousers, a printed cami, suede jacket and boots, while Dua hit the capital in a knitted top from Gabe Gordon, baggy grey jeans, trainers and a Hydra bag by KNWLS.

The Best Dressed Stars at the 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards

The lines between the small and big screens have never been blurrier, so it makes sense that the red carpet at the Emmys was filled with cinematic fashion. Television’s biggest night brought out the neon shades, feathered hemlines, and mile-long trains. It doesn’t take much to get performers to dress up, but their vision for the Emmys was especially vibrant. The two step and repeats—one in Los Angeles, the other in London—also allowed for contrasting perspectives.
At SoHo House in London, the vibe was minimalist and stylish, thanks to the cast of Netflix’s The Crown. Gillian Anderson went for an ivory Chloé crop top with a decorative fringe worn with a frayed hem skirt. Olivia Colman kept it simple in color-blocked Roksanda with a built-in cape. The always original Emma Corrin chose custom Miu Miu in a subtle shade of goldenrod worn with a bathing cap and deadly manicure.
Across the pond, the mood was festive and upbeat. Yara Shahidi dazzled in a leaf green Dior Haute Couture cocktail dress worthy of Audrey Hepburn, while Issa Rae embraced transparency in a woven silver Aliétte slip dress. Michaela Coel showed off the color of the evening in a neon yellow top and matching skirt from Christopher John Rogers. The same vibrant hue made its way onto Anya Taylor-Joy’s chic Dior Haute Couture coat. Still, the evening’s best moment came courtesy of WandaVision’s Elizabeth Olsen. In a dress designed by sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley, she brought a bit of understated glamour to the proceedings.

While a majority of the entertainment and fashion industries walked the Met Gala red carpet in New York, Beyoncé was on a yacht in Europe.

A quick scroll on her Instagram page would show the various outfits Beyoncé has been sporting during her time off, from wide-legged denim to mini skirts and playsuits, styled by KJ Moody. Two looks that stand out, see the Grammy-winning artist in pastel-hued dresses with matching heels to make up enviable monochrome outfits.

The first, a peach-colored custom David Koma dress paired with The Attico’s tangerine Devon mules previously spotted on It-girls Kylie Jenner, Dua Lipa, and Hailey Bieber in neon green. The perfect bling to go with them? An Alessandra Rich crystal choker and the Eva crushed ice bag by Lebanese label L’Afshar, which is Beyoncé’s forever favorite. Her second look, courtesy of Balmain, showcases one of summer’s favorite colors, mint green. The singer wore an off-shoulder mini dress from the French fashion house’s Resort 2022 collection with an SS21 tweed jacket draped over her shoulders, and matching Louboutins.

Kim Kardashian has just worn what might be the boldest ensemble in her repertoire of statement looks. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star stepped out in New York City dressed in a head-to-toe leather outfit by Balenciaga.

While the black trench coat, matching pants, gloves, and stiletto boots were already inching close to daring, it was the bodysuit zipped up to cover her face that took it all the way there.

Kardashian, whose style has been influenced by Kanye West since being married to him, seemed to have taken a page out of her now ex-husband’s sartorial book. The American rapper is often spotted both on and off stage with his face obscured by ski-mask style hoods and studded accessories. Together with Balenciaga’s creative director Demna Gvasalia, the trio has become synonymous with bold visuals as of late, more so since Kardashian reenacted her wedding vows with West dressed in a gown from the house’s first couture collection.

Kardashian’s latest outfit also joins her recent series of Balenciaga looks, which may culminate with a headline-making ensemble at the upcoming Met Gala. Before arriving in NYC for the event, she attended a dinner in Malibu wearing yet another subversive all-black look from Gvasalia’s fall/winter 2020 collection. This time, the makeup mogul channeled The Matrix with a one-sleeved asymmetric wrap dress, opera gloves, and stiletto heels topped off with futuristic shades.

All the Stars Reviving High-Fashion on the Venice Film Festival Red Carpet

All the Stars Reviving High-Fashion on the Venice Film Festival Red Carpet

The return of the Venice Film Festival as we know it called for looks that go beyond the usual red carpet glamour, and stars are delivering just that. After the event’s 77th edition in 2020 taking place in a more restrained format, this year, actors are seemingly back with a sartorial vengeance.
Generating buzz with her appearance was Zendaya, who made her Venice Film Festival debut this year. For the premiere of her film Dune, the newly-minted 25-year-old walked the red carpet in a custom Balmain couture dress with matching heels and 93ct Bulgari Magnifica high jewelry. “The bespoke leather gown was crafted using an exact model of the star’s bust, taking full advantage of the Balmain atelier and the house’s artisanal tradition,” shared Balmain of the dress. Later, the red carpet saw another sheer number, but this time a fully bejeweled one courtesy of Dakota Johnson in Alessandro Michele’s Gucci. Attending the premiere of her film The Lost Daughter, the actor wore a cap-sleeved gown with crystal detailing and fringing, paired with the house’s rose gold chain-link sandals.
For the premiere of Spencer, one of the most highly-anticipated ones at the festival, actor Kristen Stewart ditched dresses and suits to opt for a co-ord from Chanel’s FW21 couture collection. Paired with white Christian Louboutin heels, the pastel mint-green ensemble featured a lace trim tank top and trousers with a skirt overlay adorned with a black bow. Earlier in the week, actor Penélope Cruz arrived for the premiere of her film Parallel in a Chanel dress that was some 300 hours in the making. Selected by Cruz from the house’s FW21 couture collection, the dress is made of black mikado with an ecru silk tulle petticoat embellished with petal flounces. “I fell in love with that dress when I saw it on the catwalk,” shared the actor with Vogue. “I love the entire haute couture collection, it was brilliant, but this one was my favorite look. This is a very important movie for me, so I needed a special dress for that.”

A Timeline of Beyoncé’s Best Outfits by Arab Designers

We pay tribute to Queen B by looking back at her most flawless moments wearing Arab designers on the red carpet and beyond. Indeed, some of the superstar singer and mother of three’s most crowning fashion moments have taken place on the red carpets of prestigious award shows and film screenings, where she’s regularly opted for designs by our region’s seasoned couturiers, such as Elie Saab, Reem Acra, and Zuhair Murad. Who can forget the gold, plunging Elie Saab gown she wore to the 64th annual Golden Globe awards? Following that, the singer stunned in a jaw-dropping, floor-length floral and lace Zuhair Murad dress from the brand’s Spring 2016 Couture collection.
Her love affair with Arab labels extends well beyond the red carpet too. Yousef Aljasmi provided the embellished bodysuit she sported in the Lemonade music video, meanwhile, Queen B chose a blue, beaded Georges Chakra gown to submerge herself underwater in Pretty Hurts. For the music video for her song Die With You released in honor of her and Jay Z’s ninth wedding anniversary, Beyoncé wore a turban by Tunisian milliner Donia Allegue.

Princess Diana’s Favorite Shirts are Still a Fall Essential

Princess Diana’s Favorite Shirts are Still a Fall Essential

Fall is firmly on our style agenda now, and we’d like all midriff-flossing pics to be archived, thank you very much. Making the shift from crochet to cashmere is easier said than done, however, and trans-seasonal wardrobe binders, like classic shirting, are key to making a smooth transition. From oversized “boyfriend” styles, to starched Oxfords and simple cotton poplin button-downs, there are few fashion conundrums a shirt can’t solve.

Diana, Princess of Wales – a woman whose style was so minutely analysed during (and after) her life – often relied upon this failsafe staple. A freshly-laundered shirt tucked into high-waisted, straight leg jeans with Tod’s Gommino loafers became her personal uniform for overseas trips during the late ’90s. It was the perfect, fuss-free formula to take her from Red Cross visits to state meetings, ensuring she looked pulled-together and entirely capable, without ever being too showy.

She had of course relied upon shirting throughout her royal career, but, as was the way with the rest of her clothing, she streamlined her looks over time. Gone were the days of gold buttons, exaggerated sleeves and other ’80s frippery, Diana’s best shirts were quintessential Sloane ranger – the stiff, straight-talking styles you could (still) find at Ralph Lauren, Gap and Budd.
