KIM KARDASHIAN

Kim’s surprise performance on Saturday Night Live this past week included a hilarious monologue delivered in her deadpan Valley Girl drawl, no doubt setting her up for a potential future in comedy. Who knows? Until then, her distinctive brand of style gets an update in this shocking pink jumpsuit with matching coat by one of her wardrobe staples, Balenciaga, worn to the SNL after-party event.

CYNTHIA ERIVO

The English actor and singer also opted for some textural drama with this look from the Oscar de la Renta spring 2022 collection, attending the Los Angeles Philharmonic Homecoming Concert & Gala at Walt Disney Concert Hall. We’ve always admired Cynthia’s statement-making approach to red-carpet dressing, and this grand entrance lives up to the occasion.

DAKOTA JOHNSON

Feathery cuffs and a shoulder-padded cocktail dress embellished with shimmering pailettes from Gucci is what the actor selected to wear to the UK premiere of The Lost Daughter during the 65th BFI London Film Festival. Minimalist earrings and shoes balance an otherwise OTT ensemble.

JODIE COMER

Taking on a major film role in Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel alongside Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, it’s great to see this Liverpudlian take on Hollywood after her breakout roles in Dr. Foster and Killing Eve. She keeps it sophisticated in this double-breasted Elie Saab crepe coat with glossy satin lapels from the label’s fall 2021 collection. An amethyst jewelled necklace from Bulgari completed the look with Wolford tights and Jimmy Choo sandals.

JOSH O’CONNOR

Attending a Bulgari event in London, Josh opts for a sleek pinstripe suit from Giuliva Heritage, styled by Harry Lambert. The blazer has wide lapels which add plenty of retro whimsy to the look, and the black shirt and shoe combo works really great with the blazer’s black buttons.
