New York Fashion Week is in full swing! We’ve witnessed our favorite street style stars kill it on the concrete catwalk and, with such bomb designs gracing the runways, this season’s crop of sartorial stunners are sure to leave us speechless.
Speaking of being at a loss of words, let’s get into the contenders for our Look of the Week feature!
1) Iman in Zac Posen
Iconic supermodel Iman was a vision in red as she attended the 19th Annual amfAR New York Gala clad in a figure-hugging Zac Posen Resort 2017 textured gown that features a fishtail hem, subtle ribbed detailing and an asymmetric neckline. The 61- year-old stunner also rocked David Webb jewels, curly blonde locks and a matching lip. I swear, this woman just gets better with age!
2) Lady Gaga in Versace
Did you catch the historic Super Bowl LI game on Sunday? Not only did the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons go into overtime (for the first time ever in Super Bowl history), but Lady Gaga also performed in a hair-raising halftime show! The songstress left all her “Little Monsters” in awe as she posed alongside Donatella Versace in a custom embellished iridescent bodysuit by Atelier Versace and jaw-dropping lace-up heeled boots. Although she received some slack for her performance, we thought her performance was absolutely riveting! I mean, where else can you find sky-diving, dancing and acrobatics all in one package?
3) Tiwa Savage in Yousef Akbar
Nigerian actress/singer Tiwa Savage was on hand for Essence’s Black Women in Music event as she shut it down in a sequined set by Yousef Akbar. The chocolate-hued trio includes a sultry bandeau top, a long jacket and intricately tailored high-waist trousers. Tiwa left her accessories simple with a delicate gold body chain and nude sandals. Sequins are always fun to dress up – whether you’re heading to an evening soiree or hitting up your local mall – toss all rules to the wind when uplifting these sparkly accents.
4) Cardi B in Gucci
Love and Hip Hop New York reality starlet Cardi B loves her designer duds! If you stalk her Instagram (along with the other 5 million followers), you’ll notice that she’s evolving into a more sophisticated and polished style. We’re here for every moment! While she’s known for her fearless and outrageous ‘fits, Cardi is fully aware that switching it up is the key to becoming a well-rounded style maven. In this case, she served up vintage vibes in an ultra-lux $1300 Gucci lurex cardigan, a matching $890 skirt and strappy heels from the brand. A high ponytail topped off her chic ensemble. Hot!
5) Erykah Badu in Ashi Studio
Last night, Erykah Badu was the center of attention at Essence’s Black Women in Music event! As we all know, the neo-soul songstress is an expert when it comes to making fashion statements; yet, it’s her own personal touches that add an extra ounce of authenticity to her already-glamorous looks. Ms. Badu posed for the awaiting cameras in a voluminous, black Ashi Studio gown which boasts a one-shoulder velvet bodice, sheer sleeves and an elegant tulle-embellished train. Let’s not forget about her signature wide brim hat and aviator eyeglasses. She better werk!
6) Gabrielle Union in Martin Grant
Being Mary Jane‘s leading lady Gabrielle Union made a quick stop by Jimmy Kimmel Live looking absolutely radiant! The 44-year-old actress smized for the ‘Gram in a multicolored graphic print jumpsuit by Martin Grant. Gabby’s glowing skin and soft waves were the perfect accents for this classic frock. The flowy number also features a plunging neckline, a banded waist and a relaxed fit. Hot!
7) Ruby Rose in ADEAM
Ruby Rose stomped through the streets of New York City in an avant-garde look featuring pieces from Japanese designer Hanako Maeda of ADEAM. Who knew that a pewter bralet and high-waisted wide leg trousers could be so fresh and innovative? Although both pieces can be counted as wardrobe essentials, the high-low, cropped turtleneck sweater amps up the cool points on this one! Ruby’s washboard abs are just the icing on the cake.
8) Tracee Ellis Ross in Roksanda
And, fashion icon Tracee Ellis Ross completes our list of this week’s best dressed celebs! On Monday, the 2017 Golden Globe winner co-hosted Live with Kelly in an emerald green Roksanda stunner and soft pink studded Alaia sandals. Aside from the perfection of the contrasting color combination, Tracee’s feminine updo and cascading curls incorporated an overwhelming amount of slayage. Isn’t she gorg?
