It was a bombshell affair at The Daily Front Row’s 5th Annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards on March 17. As for the dresses, red seemed to be the choice for the day or so it appeared. The red squad: Kate Hudson, Courtney Love, Alicia Silverstone, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jasmine Sanders, Ava Dash, Natalie Halcro and I’ll stop to here. Everyone looked amazing. If I would have to pick a favorite, I would go for voluptuous Natalie Halcro red silhouette. On another note, my ultimate girl crush Candice Swanepoel made a rare appearance (she does that since the birth of her baby boy) rocking a silver long dress with a perfect front slit, deep cleavage and cut-out back.
Balmain dropped a collection to die for, from bags to shoes, to belts, to those mouth-watering colors and fabrics. And then, there was Cara Delavigne. The model turned actress, for sure made more than a few hearts to skip some beats at the sight of none other than herself, walking confidently in the opening of the show. She has been out of sight from the fashion world for quite some time, so this opening was everything.
Back to the collection, the show began with a couple of all-white looks, but then everything took on another dimension thanks to gorgeous colors and effects. Accessories are mirror-like and huge, looking immaculate and very metallic. All these work amazing with iridescent fabrics, all crafted wonderfully. The shapes in this collection reminded a lot of Grace Jones and her 80’s looks, with wide shoulders and the game of bright colors and futuristic cuts. Streetwalker denim looks, high waisted belted pants, padded shoulders, all are part of the Balmain SS 2019 collection. The architectural pieces are absolutely amazing, so are the icicle looks, which btw, represent so much from the show.
Front row: Irene Kim, Zara Larsson, Alessandra Ambrosio, Olivia Palermo, Matt Pokora, Camila Coehlo and more.

We are less than a week before the ending of Paris Fashion Week, and there’s already so much to digest from what has happened on the runaways. To make things easier, I’ve chosen two random shows, which already happened (duh!) and analyzed everything under a microscope.Embed from Getty Images
Staring off with quite a controversial brand, Off-White. Loved the abundance of immaculate white silhouettes placed at the beginning of the show. Gentle, soft, here and there slightly transparent, teasing your eyes and your senses fabrics poured on the runway, leaving a trace of romanticism mixed with a whole lot of modern and minimalistic approach. Then the bright lime, soft baby blue, grey and yellow combinations, and snake lime prints erased all traces of all of that white, yet the vibe remained almost, kind of, the same. I love how the waist of the woman is accentuated, so are the legs with short skirts and knee pants. Several sportswear silhouettes changed the pace of the collection, coming one at a time, right after phases of heels and skirts.
Front Row: Cara Delavigne, Nathalia Vodianova, Alessandra Ambrosio, Neymar Jr. and more.

Black was the theme of the Golden Globes for this year’s edition, and even the story behind it is not one related to fashion, the black itself made everyone look really well, individually and as a whole. With this being said, this edition brought me a lot of enjoyment in choosing my favorite looks, which I’m about to unravel now. Read on and see if you agree with Glaibera’s choices!
BEST HAIR & MAKEUP
There is no doubt that best hair and makeup from the Golden Globes goes to Jessica Biel. The actress not only had one of the best dresses of the night but won my heart completely in the hairstyle department (yes, I do have in my heart such a department). Styled on one side lightly waved, away from the ears, it then goes at the back styled into a perfect half circle, falling like a nice curtain on the neck. Earrings are long but do not cross hair length, this emphasizing, even more, the perfection of this highly sophisticated hairstyle. Makeup is gentle, with extra long eyelashes and subtle rosy lips.Embed from Getty Images
Dakota Johnson is my next most favorite, the actress looking delightful in the best dress of the night. The front looks neat, almost too neat until your eyes fall on her perfectly thought belt. Even with such a simplistic view, the dress is still a winner. Then the actress turned, revealing a crystal-embellished bow design, stunning and opposite looking to what was happening at the front. The bow slowly dies into a long, almost dark grayish train. For hair, we have a wavy, in line with ears ponytail paired with fine bangs, styled to look natural and fresh.Embed from Getty Images
Just as nice:
Jessica Pare – The actress had one perfect look per whole. Hair is sleek, styled on one side and into an updo. The dress is a real piece of art, gorgeous, with flowers and well-thought straps.Embed from Getty Images
Essence Atkins – See-through tulle long skirt and heavily embroidered top with feathered short sleeves.Embed from Getty Images
Diane Kruger – As usual, a one of a kind fashionista that never disappoints. The actress wore a beaded gown with matching long cape. A sleek updo revealed the perfect bone structure of the actress.Embed from Getty Images
Brittany Lopez – Hair down on one side, very organic looking. She was wearing simplistic strappy high heels and hearts and starts A-line embroidered tulle dress.Embed from Getty Images
Sally Hawkins – Assimetrical mixed gown with velvety blouse top revealing one shoulder and ball skirt.Embed from Getty Images
And then there were the hotties: Halle Berry and Kendall Jenner.
Emporio Armani’s collection at London Fashion Week had a little Barbie doll vibe to it, thanks to translucent and iridescent fabrics of pastel aquatic colors modeled into stylish tailored pants, schoolgirl-inspired and long dresses with soft ruffled bottoms, various tops, and summer casual and blazer jackets. Small geometric figures prints and applique made their way into the collection, looking jolly, almost cute, especially since the designer paired them with before mentioned pastel aquatic colored pieces. A nice change of seen was made by modern hieroglyph styled prints. The clothes looked marvelous and surprisingly still in tune with what happened before on the runway. The glimpse of color red was there, yet managed to have no say in the final result. Talking of which, could not have been better placed in time.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
I could put words into a puzzle and still, anyone could guess that is about Nicole Kidman perfect style. Yesterday she stunned again, this time in a red tea-length gown. She surely knows what colors to wear for her light skin and blonde hair.Embed from Getty Images
I preferred Michelle Pfeiffer not only for looking flawless at 59 but for her black lace and tulle cocktail dress that she wore with grace and style. You go, girl!Embed from Getty Images
I’m not always into Jessica Biel‘s fashion choices, but for this edition of Emmy Awards I have to admit, she made my heart flutter in approval. The hairstyle for the night sets her apart from the rest and with the help of the wrap gown she’s transformed herself into a real goddess.Embed from Getty Images
E-News correspondent and television personality Zuri Hall embarked on an adventurous journey by choosing to wear this fringe metallic dress, which is not only splendid but unconventional too.Embed from Getty Images
Actress Vanessa Kirby looked delicate in her fairytale dress, up to the point where the pulled back hair meets the eyes of the viewer. The look is ultimately girly but strong too.Embed from Getty Images
Susan Kelechi metallic off-shoulders dress has a mesmerizing vintage air to it.
Rashid by Rasit BagzibagliEmbed from Getty Images
Rasit Bagzibagli showed off a fun summery collection with a pleasant conversation of sparkly fabrics, artistically assembles of colorful stripes and a relaxed approach.
Şiyar AkboğaEmbed from Getty Images
Siyar Akboga’s collection shown at MBFWI was far away from being romantic or anything of the sort, conquering eyes with elements of a fetish vibe like harness and mesh ripped off masks. In between, he added jacket suit dressy looks, wide leg pants and a nice assembly of bralettes.
Umit KutlukEmbed from Getty Images
Umit Kutluk had a couple of looks mastered with class and style for his SS 2018 collection, at MBFWI. The designer achieved greatness by shaping fabrics in an unorthodox manner, and then, with the help of girly colors, feather, embroidery and flattering cuts he added style and beauty.
Mehtep ElaidiEmbed from Getty Images
A perfect high-fashion worthy collection of Mehtep Elaidi happened at MBFWI. 60’s palette of colors painted folk-inspired clothes styled by the designer in a modern manner. The inspiration is barely noticeable or at least, too well made to disrupt the rest of the conversation.
Tom FordEmbed from Getty Images
The woman from Tom Ford’s SS 2018 collection looked classy with a slight hint of a bad-ass nuance to her personality. Her clothes are undeniably comfy, appealing and alluring. The designer explored the minimalistic appearance, an approach often seen presented at NYFW for SS 2018.
Ulla JohnsonEmbed from Getty Images
I don’t know if it’s the background for the show, but Ulla Johnson’s SS collection had me fallen in love with the clothes. I’m feeling the calmness in the colors she chose for this collection. I’m feeling the soft fabrics. It looks feminine and gentle, like a dream.
GCDSEmbed from Getty Images
GCDS’ collection is like a breath of fresh air among all the disproportionate romance going on.
MonseEmbed from Getty Images
Monse stands out from the crowd by having a lovely, down to earth collection, with sporty clothes mixed with casual high heels, socks here and there and hats.
MillyEmbed from Getty Images
I was surprised by how much I liked Milly’s collection. The tops are tiny, therefore quite revealing and I love that.
AdeamEmbed from Getty Images
Adeam is definitely one of the most well-made collections from this NYFW edition. And although the designer joined the existing obnoxious trends happening at the moment on the runway, the collection looks somehow unique from the rest. Fabrics are alluring, colors are mature, cuts are perfect.
Bibhu MohapatraEmbed from Getty Images
Bibhu Mohapatra left me speechless with an outstanding collection of dresses looking very different from everything happening trend wise. He sent down the runway luxurious looking silhouettes to which I had a hard time choosing a favorite. Execution is perfect, down to the last detail. Colors are earthy and elegant. Shapes are flattering and feminine.
Taoray WangEmbed from Getty Images
Taoray Wang is another designer with a great collection presented at NYFW. She kept it simple, and added the right details to lift up the mood of the clothes.
TibiEmbed from Getty Images
Tibi had lovely long dresses and played with monochromatic silhouettes. The collection is elegant and modern yet unpretentious.
Amal Clooney’s lilac dress talked about romance, excellent craftsmanship, and high class. On top of that, the color and silhouette help to soften up some of the harshness dark hair usually has.Embed from Getty Images
Avant-garde artist Laurie Anderson was amongst the many who showed up on the red carpet ahead of “Suburbicon” screening. Her positive attitude, together with her creative sense of dressing up went very well hand in hand. And literally, the highlight of her look is every single piece that she is wearing.Embed from Getty Images
There’s somebody I do not know, who showed up wearing a fancy robe on top of his suit. The bow tie is a perfect touch to the whole affair.Embed from Getty Images
One of my favorite actresses, Barbora Bobulova, was in high heels and lila dress for the photocall of ‘Diva!’, and I can’t take my eyes off of her adorable look. The bangs add more of the girly vibe.Embed from Getty Images
Actress Isabella Ferrari joined Bobulova in the pursuit of looking gentle and feminine, choosing a just as much loved color, which is a lovely pink of a long dress with shirt collar.Embed from Getty Images
Jane Fonda looked sublime on the red carpet in her embroidered gown, for the screening of her latest movie ‘Our Souls at Night’.Embed from Getty Images
Milena Mancini’s super relaxed but fashionable look that she wore for the ‘Il Contagio’ photocall has given me some inspiration for my own looks. Love her hair, the posture and all that she’s wearing.
Spanish actress Lola Duenas was all a smile before the screening of her latest movie Zama, and I’m looking at her dress thinking to myself that I might’ve found the reason for her cheerfulness. Not that the actress shouldn’t be in high spirits, but the dress just might have gone through a trick. True or not, I am inclined to be in favor of her look. Next time, just rock it with more confidence, Lola Duenas!Embed from Getty Images
Jury member Mark Cousins adapted the Scottish kilt to a handsome red carpet appearance, honoring its roots and looking mighty stylish while doing it.Embed from Getty Images

Kristen Wiig looked stunning in her plunging neckline Zuhair Murad dress and perfect sleek hair while posing on the red carpet before the screening of ‘Downsizing’. Go girl!
Freida Pinto and Olivia Palermo were among the attendees at Women’s Health and FEED’s 6th Annual Party Under the Stars on August 5, and they both looked impeccable, the reason why I’ve decided to gush a bit about their outfits. Palermo is obviously a pro in the fashion department, and for the event she chose to wear a maxi polka dots skirt that she paired with a white ruffle shirt. Her nude and gold strappy high heels sandals sealed the deal elegantly.
Freida Pinto skipped color, instead wearing a Resort 2018 white ensemble with black patterns, consisting of a maxi skirt and shirt. She finished her relaxed appearance with black strappy heeled mules.Embed from Getty Images
Although extremely gorgeous, this Couture Fall 2017 gray wool jumpsuit is not the easiest piece to wear. However, for the screening of her latest movie ‘Wind River’, actress Elizabeth Olsen looked magnificent while wearing it. For the completion of her look she chose to wear black pumps, a choice that kept her look close to the image portrayed by the brand for this collection.Embed from Getty Images
At the Tony Awards on Sunday, June 11th, it was all about the creative and talented people of Broadway, but that didn’t stop fashion happening. The attendees looked their finest in most recent designer pieces. I’ve already picked the looks that had me convinced.
Candice SweanopolEmbed from Getty Images
Supermodel Candice Swanepoel looked divine in her Bordeaux multi abstract strapless gown with beaded bodice. The gown is a Fall 2017 piece, worth of 600 hours of hand embroidering.
Condola RashadEmbed from Getty Images
The actress had an 80’s aura around her, rocking a black wrap dress with a crepe feel and orange-gold stripes ensemble at the top. As a plus, she rocked one of the most well-talked hairstyles of the night, consisting of a long ponytail, wrapped four times with gold band.
Mike FaistEmbed from Getty Images
Mike Faist looked like an intellectual aristocrat, which is obviously, attractive to some and slightly intriguing to others, if I may say so. The long curly hair is paired well with the velvet jacket and vintage style tie.
Olivia WildeEmbed from Getty Images
Mom of two sported a sleek one-sided Bob with rosy eyelids and matching lips. Her attire for the night was a sparkly plunging neckline column gown in red.
Denee BentonEmbed from Getty Images
Denee Benton’s sleeveless gown is quite a sight! I love the leaves applique on the skirt and the transition between the top and bottom.
Bette MidlerEmbed from Getty Images
