Normani, Rickey Thompson, and Tems steal the show in this week’s fashion round-up.
From fall-black-everything to fashion week flawlessness, and a show stopping appearance at the Global Citizen concert, this week our favourite celebrities proved they can weather any style scenario that comes their way. From the all-black ensembles of content creator Rickey Thompson and model Amelia Gray, to pop heavyweights like Tems, Griff and Normani adding style queens to their endless list of musical accolades, our Instagram feeds served as a fashion crash-course when these outfit pics showed up.
Head below to find out what we learned, right now…
Griff took over Fashion Month
Well, we don’t know why one of our favourite main-pop girls, Griff, looks so sad in this snap, because the outfit she dons is the epitomy of style success. Taken from an excursion to London Fashion Week earlier this month, she shared the pic on Instagram, alongside clips of her stylist friend Kamran Rajput (@kamranrajput) offering her a crash course in the dos and dont’s of fashion week – “Do I cheer?” she asks. However, surely she could do no wrong in this Simone Rocha ruffled dress, coupled with a red-patent biker jacket that we simply have to have in our wardrobes. A glossy love-heart clutch and platform black shoes complete the look, and with it, a new level of fashion week slay is unlocked.
Normani delivered a masterclass in the bathroom selfie
With a decadent marbled bathroom like this as your backdrop, stealing the scene in a selfie could be taxing. But if anyone can pull off such a job it’s Normani, with a little help from Versace, of course. Another one gracing a fashion week, Normani hit up the luxury brand’s Milan show, dressed in this classic body-con, faux-leather dress, adorned with some trademark Versace bling, in the form of a gold chain belt. Judging by Normani’s Instagram post, she also fitted some pizza and rigatoni into the affair, so if you ask us, it would appear the ultimate night out was had by all.
Rickey Thomspon served up the monochromatic look of dreams
If you were, for whatever reason, invited to the funeral of your style icon, you would wear the ensemble Rickey Thomspon donned on a trip to London last week, wouldn’t you? However, the actor and content creator would appear to have been hitting up British shores on his tour of September fashion weeks, and of course this gothic look was an equally winning combo for paparazzi pics in runway front rows. A quadruple leather situation – Thompson paired a biker jacket with leather trousers, platform boots, and a clunky buckle adorned bag. From funeral to fashion week, this boy really has us covered on all fronts.
Amelia Gray evidenced once again that style runs in the family
At this point it’s simply assumed knowledge that supermodel Amelia Gray has the same eye for a showstopping look as her ‘Real Housewives… of Beverly Hills star mum, aka the infamous Lisa Rinna. And, in this gorgeous tailored skirt and blazer two-piece, the model sported on a nighttime stroll, Gray also looked ready to pull up to sunday service as the most sharply styled attendee ever known to the congregation. Long white socks paired with classic black heeled court shoes completed the ensemble, and now all we want to know is if Gray could save some of her endless stocks of elegance for the rest of us?
Tems was a vision in turquoise
President of sumptuous afrobeats bops, Tems, wowed in this turquoise triumph as she hit the stage at the Global Citizen concert in Ghana. The custom, lace catsuit from Montreal brand BRIELLE was styled by Dunsin Wright (@dunsinwright), who added a silk, clasped mini skirt and icy shades for the ultimate turquoise trifecta. Stunning crowds on stage with her unmistakable tones and eye-turning looks is of course, all we would expect from the rising pop powerhouse. We can’t wait to see what she shows up in next.
