Another year, another Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show done and dusted. The 2017 edition took place in Shanghai, China, yesterday and starred the likes of Adriana Lima, Bella Hadid, Lily Aldridge and Karlie Kloss. Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio also walked in the lingerie extravaganza for the last time. But how does a model wind down from a show like that? With an after-party, naturally. All the angels, returners and newcomers stepped out of their wings and into their red carpet glad rags for an evening of celebration. Bella slipped into a red custom Alexandre Vauthier number, Alessandra opted for an asymmetric Versace look and Adriana turned to Mugler for her two-tone dress. However, according to WWD , the celebrations were cut short just before midnight when Shanghai Police shut the event down. “They want us to finish. We are sorry, we tried,” said a woman who had been directing the crowd to disperse over the microphone. According to WWD , a number of uniformed police officers then started to make their way in to the venue at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.

It’s fair to say that the dress Queen Elizabeth II wore for her wedding to Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten, 70 years ago today, is truly iconic. With its scalloped hem, intricate embroidery and 13ft train, it remains as breathtaking today as it did on its debut in front of 2,000 guests in Westminster Abbey on 20 November 1947. Just as timeless and impactful as you would expect a real life princess’ bridal gown to be. It was a labour of love. Designed by royal couturier Sir Norman Hartnell, the ivory dress took Hartnell and his team of 350 seamstresses weeks to create. The finished design was made from Chinese silk, boasted a heart-shaped neckline, fitted bodice and a whole load of pearls. Around 10,000 to be exact. Glittering crystals, embroidered roses and a star-patterned train also featured – the latter a rather modern feature for a bride in the 40s. The train is said to have been inspired by Bottielli’s painting of Primavera from 1482 and covered in delicate floral designs. According to the Royal Collection Trust , it was meant to symbolise “rebirth and growth” in Britain after the war. But the team was rewarded. The seamstresses were given a prime spot outside Buckingham Palace on the day of the wedding, so they could see their handiwork worn by the woman it was created for. Despite the then-princess’ royal status, the material had to be purchased with ration vouchers like all other British brides in the post-war days. Engaged women were provided with 200 clothing coupons for their dress. Women across the UK sent their ration vouchers to the royal bride-to-be to ensure she would have the dress of her dreams. However, it was illegal to give coupons away and the kind donations had to be returned. Her Majesty, aged 21 at the time, paired the dress with ivory high-heeled, sandal-style shoes designed by Edward Rayne, whose footwear designs were also favourited by Hollywood legends Vivien Leigh and Elizabeth Taylor.

With Tracee Ellis Ross as the host of the 2017 American Music Awards, the fashion’s inevitably incredible. For her first outfit of the night, the Blackish actress walked the red carpet in a burgundy sequin gown with a back cutout. Her mother, singer Diana Ross, on hand to lend support — in addition to most of the extended Ross family, including Ashlee Simpson Ross in a colorful long-sleeve number — made it clear where her daughter got her sense of style from. The singer made a statement by wearing a strapless black dress that she paired with a tulle headpiece. But the Rosses weren’t the only ones making major sartorial statements. Kelly Clarkson looked regal in a black velvet gown with gold details; Selena Gomez showed off new blonde hair; Jessie James Decker flaunted her baby bump in a tight blush-colored dress; and more.
