Formal Dressing and Emily Ratajkowski

Style ideas from the 26-year-old American model on formal dressing

Emily Ratajkowski’s style is best done, IMO, whenever it’s a combination of dressing the part for (celeb) outings and classic clothes. Emily typecasts the rail-thin figure that models are known for, so it’s only ideal if her fashion also exudes just what her body does.

Classic exotics

Emily was once spotted at the screening of her Netflix comedy series Easy, wearing a matching-coloured ensemble. Her choice of accessory was a matching gold choker but it was really her ‘dress-worn-over-trousers look’, that was the most interesting fashion statement ever for its uniqueness.

Metallic and golden, the only fashion miss in the whole look would be her bag; the bag quite horribly clashes with an otherwise atypical evening look of purely undiluted glamour.

I loved that Emily played up a bolder style but in a soft colour here – she really looks dressed to the nines, despite only working with rather provocative cuts for her look.

I think it’s pretty obvious that the entire highlight of her gorgeous outfit is making sure it has the right cut.  Not only is the skirt part of Ratajowski’s dress fiercely slashed but also the bodice, which sports a very deep cut – both alluring and attention-grabbing.

Also, Emily’s sense of style here has a professional feel to it – seems strictly made for her arrival at the late-night talk show.

Alexander McQueen Fall 2018

The latest collection from Alexander McQueen is a stylistic exploration of the grim transformation of a cocoon into a charming butterfly; much of this collection was an accurate depiction of the darkness associated with that grim process because the primary colours in the show were red and black.

It was brilliant to witness an avoidance of drab in tailored clothes at Alexander McQueen and an absorption of a minimal edition of excess instead – very typical to the British label’s motto in fashion. Ravishing panels, tailcoats, the presence of sophisticated lace and also dresses with abstract butterfly imprints created a paradisical collection – more loudly magnetic than anything else.

Christian Dior A/W 2018

This season at Christian Dior, Musée Rodin in Paris served as the setting for the catwalk collection of the luxury label to be showcased. Also, rights for women was explored in an entirely décor-capacity: reminders of the reform-minded protests which were carried out at the Left Bank in the late ’60s was all around the collection – posters of protests, covers of magazines, plus slogans, covered both the floors and the walls for the fashion show.

The autumn-winter collection displayed fashion exclusively from the sixties: patchworks and embroideries, featured amongst tulle. Meanwhile, the accessories sported an offbeat look, with the presence of balaclavas, and then surprisingly turned a combo of traditional and modern with the inclusion of clogs that had studs on them; the colour palette was unique too, jumping from boring blues to muddy greens.
