With the festive season fast approaching, you may be finding yourself in search of some winter wardrobe inspiration before the Christmas party invites come rolling in. Well, fear not, as the likes of Kendall Jenner, Rosalía and Adele are serving up plenty in this week’s Looks of the Week. Head below to enjoy this week’s round-up…
LOOKS OF THE WEEK
Lady Gaga, Paris Hilton and Adele bring the looks in this week’s fashion round-up.
Anya Taylor-Joy channelled Daphne from Scooby-Doo in a purple skirt-suit
Over the course of this past year, millennial purple has stapled itself as the colour of 2021. Anya Taylor-Joy hopped onto the trend, dazzling the CFDA 2021 Awards red-carpet in a deep purple skirt suit from Oscar de la Renta. Opting for a retro look, The Queen’s Gambit actress sported a bustier cocktail dress underneath a peplum jacket, which was adorned with Tiffany & Co jewellery and lilac heels. Completed with a leopard-print Gigi Burris veiled hat and matching gloves, Anya’s outfit can only be described as the lovechild between Scooby-Doo’s Daphne and 101 Dalmations Cruella DeVille.
Lady Gaga proved she is the queen
Taking to the red carpet for her brand new film, House of Gucci, it’s only right that Lady Gaga chose to dress in the Italian luxury brand’s clothing. At the London premiere, plunging purples once again took centre stage, as the singer opted for a magnificent violet dress, complete with dramatical flowing sleeves and towering boots. At the Milan premiere, she set the carpet ablaze with a red-hot Versace number. Switching it up with some Alexander McQueen for a quiet moment in London, the star looked every bit regal in embroidered thigh highs and satin lapels. Gaga delivered – as per – a spectacular show-stopper.
Adele’s look was out-of-this-world at her Griffith Observatory concert
Playing at the world-famous observatory for her performance special, Adele: One Night Only, the singer stunned in a custom Schiaparelli black silk faille dress, while sporting a sparkling moon rock embroidered bustier sparkling against the Los Angeles skyline. Completing the look with custom Saturn pendant earrings from the Italian fashion house, Adele’s starry look was nothing short of whimsical.
Taylor Swift mourns the ghosts of boyfriends past in all black this week
Taylor Swift once sang, “Old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now. Why? Because she’s dead!” Promoting the release of her album, Red (Taylor’s Version), over the weekend, the singer proves that indeed the old Taylor Swift is dead. Dressing all in black with her classic statement red lip for her appearances onSNL and Late Night with Seth Meyers, Taylor Swift is mourning the ghosts of boyfriends’ past and previously recorded music, making space for a glittering future to come.
Rosalía blooms in blues and butterflies
As we delve further into the depths of winter, many of us are still trying to cling to the final dregs of summer and Rosalía is one of them. Over the weekend, the singer took to Instagram in a Dolce and Gabbana look, debuting a swathed sheer sky-blue dress decorated in delicately-placed butterflies. Reminiscent of a Greek sculpture of Venus, this is a look that makes us already look forward to spring.
Paris Hilton says “I do” in Oscar de la Renta
This one’s for the history books – reality TV’s most iconic star finally found her match and married him in perhaps the most diamond-filled wedding day. Paris Hilton exchanged her vows with Carter Milliken Reum in an Oscar de la Renta number; comprising a high-necked, long-sleeved lace gown, alongside a simple tulle veil and diamond earrings, Paris looked nothing short of a princess fresh out of a dreamy fairy-tale. That’s hot.
Tinashe is getting us excited for the festive season with her shimmering gold look
It looks like Christmas is coming early this year, as Tinashe kicks off the holiday season with a sparkling gold dress for her Las Vegas show. Reminiscent of a bauble on top of the Christmas tree, the singer took to Instagram to showcase a gold cut-out mini-dress, pairing the look with matching gloves and a bedazzling chain belt. Let the festivities commence!
Kendall Jenner makes cut-out dresses look hassle-free
Cut-out dresses can be a nightmare to navigate. From making sure body parts aren’t falling out of place, to ensuring no delicate piece of material snaps off, pulling off a cut-out dress can often be deemed somewhat of an art. Kendall Jenner, of course, makes it look effortless. Celebrating her friends’ nuptials, Kendall Jenner dressed all in black with a dress from Mônot’s SS22 collection. Featuring diamond-shaped cut-outs across the bust, a bare midriff and a drop-waist black skirt. Here’s to risqué chic!
