Barbie Ferreira, Uglyworldwide and Simone Ashley feature in our favourite looks of the week lineup.
Balenciaga drip, chainmail dresses and feathered ball gowns: do we have a look roundup for you. This week, Barbie Ferreira, Uglyworldwide and Simone Ashley turn it out for late-night parties, day-time outings and diamond-dealing events — and deliver plenty of fresh fashion inspiration along the way.
So whether you prefer to keep the drama to your accessories like Cardi B, or want to make a head-to-toe statement like Uglyworldwide, scroll below now to see how it can be done…
We’ll meet you at the chapel, Barbie Ferreira
After an easily forgivable hiatus from the ‘grid, Barbie Ferreira is coming back to our FYP with full force — decked in a floor-length silk slip fit for a trip to the chapel. Interspersed with delicate lace accents, the sheer ivory piece marks a departure in Barbie’s wardrobe from Euphoria-approved two pieces to a 90th-century heroine. Accessorising the look with multi-layered crucifixes, Barbie looks like she’s stepped straight out of the Renaissance — and we are currently signing a petition for her starring role in the next season of Bridgerton.
Uglyworldwide proves the devil actually wears chainmail
Rightful owner of the avant-garde aesthetic, Uglyworldwide can always be relied on to take the art of risqué dressing one step further. With this ethereal-devil-meets-Cleopatra getup, they embrace the societal standards of feminine beauty in a way which caters to the female gaze — creating an overall ‘fit that is just as darling as it is daring. Over a pair of plain black briefs, delicate gold chains are draped across their body — forming a diamond pattern thanks to the gold hoop fixtures. Though displaying their bare body, Uglyworldwide stares through fierce eye make-up to show it is all theirs to enjoy.
Simone Ashley shows the Featheringtons how it’s done
It would appear Simone Ashley’s ballgowns are not limited to her Bridgerton dressing room. No, Simone Ashley can turn it out all on her own — as her latest appearance at Tiffany and Co.’s latest exhibition can attest to. Washed in a bright blush hue, an oversized feather shawl is paired with a fishtail-cut dress — creating the perfect contrast to the Tiffany-blue carpet. To finish the look, she wears a pair of sparkly stilettos tied together with a bow akin to the perfectly tied ribbon on their coveted blue boxes.
The B in Cardi B stands for Balenciaga
Bowl cuts, Balenciaga boots and Balenciaga bags —Cardi B’s drip is like no other. Showing the colour pink should never be restricted to Wednesdays, she came to the ‘gram with a candy floss-covered ‘fit. Bringing back the exposed pockets and barely-there denim of our past, she matches some distressed pink shorts with a low-cut blouse. Simple in conception, Cardi brings the drama with her accessories, pairing a diamond-encrusted Le Cagole with some multi-layered chains. And, for that all-important finishing touch, she styles some rose-tinted glasses and calls it a day.
We hope this is Kali Uchi’s official application to join the cast of Bridgerton
We are not sure if this is the official Bridgerton effect, or the waist-snatching wonder of the corset has created its own hype – either way, we are very much here for the trend that has most recently taken over the globe. Posing on a car bonnet in true superstar style, Kali Uchis showed off her take on the trend and it was cream, cropped and lacy – aka all of the components for a hot girl summer ‘fit, right? With a beaded necklace and green trim providing a subtle pop of colour, the look situates itself as one of our favourites from the week.
