Red Carpet Roundup 6th-13th May: Zainab Balogun, Rihanna, Erykah Badu & More!

After the extravaganza that was the 2014 MET Gala, many of last week’s events had celebrities outdoing themselves with their wardrobes and being spotted in an array of stylish looks.

And, from Rihanna in head-to-toe Dior to Sarah Jessica Parker in another to-die-for Oscar de la Renta look, we’ve the very best ensembles in our  roundup of last week’s well-dressed stars. See them, here;

We loved Sarah Jessica Parker’s masterful mix of prints and textures and were mostly lusting for her Spring 2014 monochrome Oscar de la Renta tweed coat. Her floral blue print velvet dress was punctuated by satin heels and stacked gold jewelry. The actress looked absolutely amazing with fresh, clean and understand makeup and hair. Love it!
First up is fashion’s finest, Sarah Jessica Parker. We loved the star’s brilliant ball gown look for the 2014 MET Gala, but are just as in love with the way she followed it up with a Spring’14 Oscar de la Renta tweed coat, on top of a floral printed, blue velvet dress punctuated with ivory satin heels and gold jewels. In a word: Stunning! This lady can do no wrong with her wardrobe.

Stylistically, it’s always best to expect the unexpected from Rihanna. At the Dior Cruise 2015 fashion show, the resident Bajan Bad Gal opted for a tinge of tame in a pink ruffle hem silk dress from the French fashion house. We were enamored with the ultra feminine details of her ensemble, which included colorblock pumps and a Lady Dior handbag from the Spring 2014 collection. A statement necklace and sultry stare rounded out her flawless look. She did that!
Another fashion killer is our favourite good girl gone bad star, Rihanna, who posed in one of her more ‘tame’ looks in a pink ruffle-hemmed silk dress from Christian Dior, for the label’s Cruise’15 show. Looking ultra feminine, Ri paired her dress with a pair of colour-blocked pumps, a Spring’14 Dior handbag and statement jewellery from the French fashion house. And doesn’t she look flawless?

Spied at Maybelline's Find Your Shade event in Lagos last week, actress, model and TV presenter Zainab Balogun looked radiant in a silk, cream jumpsuit. Skimming her figure perfectly, we star looked ridiculously beautiful.

Another gorgeous star who’s always on our radar, singer Jennifer Lopez stepped out looking sultry in a red Bec & Bridge dress and nude Christian Louboutin pumps for last week’s filming of American Idol. Taking a minute to pose on the red carpet, Ms Lopez showed off her hot body (those legs? #Wow) and proved she still knows how to strut her stuff.

Essence CoverGirl Erykah Badu glimmered in silver at the magazine’s Journey to Beautiful Dinner held last night in New York City
After her dramatic MET Gala look, the queen of quirks and Essence Magazine cover girl, Erykah Badu shined in silver at Essence’s Journey to Beautiful dinner, held in New York City. We don’t know what she has in her pocket, but we can see that she’s quite a selection of accessories in her jewellery box and we love the huge Pharrell-like hat. As always, the star looked supadupa fly.

Soon-to-be bride Kim Kardashian served mid-20th century bride at the USC Shoah Foundation 20th Anniversary Gala in a white Balmain Blazer, Alexander McQueen blouse, and long Lanvin skirt. Not quite flattering for Kim as we are used to seeing her in tight fitting dresses but we love the refinement of the ensemble.
Soon-to-be Mrs West, Kim Kardashian served mid-20th century bride at the USC Shoah Foundation’s Anniversary Gala, wearing a white Balmain Blazer, Alexander McQueen blouse and long Lanvin skirt. Not quite flattering for her shape, this look landed Kim a spot on our list because we love the refinement of the ensemble and the fact that she took a risk.

he “I Will Never Let You Down” singer stayed true to her lyrics and didn’t disappoint on the red carpet of the 2014 Gabrielle’s Gala. Rita added some gild to her glam in an Emilio Pucci Pre-Fall 2014 gold sequin gown and upped the sartorial ante of her ensemble with a cinched waist and the flash of a toned gam. She finished off her look with sweet suede and PVC sandals by Jimmy Choo, loose blonde curls and her signature raging red lippie.
British singer Rita Ora showed off her long legs with a thigh high slit on the red carpet of the 2014 Gabrielle Gala, wearing a glamorous Emilio Pucci Pre-Fall’14 gown with cinched waist. The “RIP” singer continued killing it with her sweet suede and PVC sandals by Jimmy Choo, bombshell blonde curls and her signature raging red lips. #LoveIt.

Garcelle Beauvais attends The Helping Hand of Los Angeles Mother's Day Luncheon
Haitian actress Garcelle Beauvais attended The Helping Hand of Los Angeles Mother’s Day Luncheon on Friday 9th May, in what could’ve passed for designer garms but was actually pieces from highstreet store Zara. With wide legs, a high waist, white pointy pumps and a tri-coloured tote, Ms Beauvais looked utterly chic. We’re off to see if her look’s still available to buy in stores…

So we go from the sartorial high of the Met Gala…to this. Tyra Banks flossed at the 2014 Flawsome Ball in a strapless dress by Filipino designer Francis Libiran:
Fashion mogul Tyra Banks looked appropriately flawless for the 2014 Flawsome Ball, wearing a bronzed strapless dress by Filipino designer Francis Libiran, which complimented her figure with its low cut and fishtail shape. We were definitely impressed with the combination of Tyra and this dress.

Chrissy Teigen was the lady in red at the Flawsome Ball 2014 in a Blumarine Strapless Draped Gown in the fiery hue:
And last on our list is model Chrissy Teigen who also attended the Flawsome ball, looking lovely as a lady in red, wearing a Blumarine strapless, draped gown and simple strappy sandals. We love it when Chrissy steps out demure and her ‘less is more’ approach to accessorising really paid off, bringing attention to her beautiful face.

So that’s it from the red carpet this week, guys – these were the stars who brought it best. But, if you think there’s a look we might’ve missed, do share it with us below or tell us about it via @SPICETVAFRICA and the hashtag #RedCarpetRoundup.
