To mark the final season premiere of ‘Game of Thrones’, the star-studded cast graced the red carpet for the last time armed with the fashion know-how they’ve picked up over the years.Actress Emilia Clarke reminded us why she’s a Hollywood Queen in frothy Valentino ruffles with the words, ‘Leave your door open for me, I might sleepwalk into your dreams’, emblazoned across the front.Vampy lipstick and an intricate braid – a sweet tribute to onscreen character Daenerys Targaryen – finished the romantic ensemble.Meanwhile, co-stars Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, also demonstrated their sartorial prowess.Williams, who plays Arya Stark in the hit show, chose a navy tiered Miu Miu frock – her lilac hair stealing the spotlight.While Turner, 23, took to the red carpet hand-in-hand with fiancé Joe Jonas in a mini star-emblazoned Louis Vuitton dress.But it was newlywed Rosie Lesley and Gwendoline Christie who stepped up the style stakes up a notch in show-stopping ensembles courtesy of Oscar de la Renta and Iris van Herpen.From Lisa Bonet in vintage Dior to a Gucci-clad Sarah Paulson, see who wore what at the New York premiere below.
Melania Trump made a sparkly entrance to a state dinner in South Korea wearing a black and blue sheer sequined gown by J. Mendel.
Oscar de la Renta‘s new design duo, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim, injected some youth and humor into the Resort 2018 collection. A sequin, cheeky monkey wearing sunglasses and sipping a martini was everyone’s favorite print, as well as the banana leaf similar to the iconic wallpaper from the restaurant Indochine in New York City (fashion crowd’s favorite restaurant since the 80s!). In addition, denim is introduced, and with an Oscar de la Renta, you better believe this is denim at its softest and finest.Speaking of comfort, Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Valentino Resort 2018 show in New York City on May 23 gave us all renewed energy for designers doing streetwear. A silk green tracksuit is the only thing we want to wear when we travel, while pink and red track pants paired with a fur coat is the Sunday-morning outfit of our dreams — and so are practically all the looks that Piccioli sent down the runway.Inspired by the New York City hip-hop scene and working with Zandra Rhodes on some of the prints, Piccioli ensured the Valentino show something for everyone.As for the other resort shows that have happened so far? The circuit reads more like the latest copy of Condé Nast Traveler, with Chanel’s Greek Revival at the Grand Palais in Paris, followed by Prada in Milan, Dior’s extravaganza in the Calabasas, Calif., desert, and Louis Vuitton near Kyoto, Japan.So what of the fashion? Here are the best of the best from all the collections so far.Read more from Yahoo Style + Beauty:• Charlize Theron, Demi Moore, and Freida Pinto Brave the Mountains of L.A. for Dior Resort Show• Valentino Is Loving Ruth Negga• What to Pack for Your Ultimate, Super-Chic Summer Road TripFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

It was announced this morning that Maria Grazia Chiuri, formerly co-creative director of Valentino, has been appointed as the creative director of Christian Dior — an especially noteworthy installment, given that she is the first female head of a label that is often described as a bastion of Parisian femininity. The unveiling follows months of speculation after Raf Simons’s departure from Dior in October last year. Pierpaolo Piccioli, with whom Chiuri ran Valentino, will remain at the Italian label as its sole chief.
The Valentino Paris Fashion Week show was all kinds of exquisite. Valentino treated us to a glimpse inside the modern fairytale princess’ wardrobe, where ballet flats are teamed with ballgowns, olive green parkas and jumpers are worn under sequin-covered dresses. And we’re very happy customers. We wonder how many of these frocks Valentino fan Alexa Chung will step out in?
Alessandro Michele’s work for Gucci work might be making fashion editors and stylists salivate, but it’s Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2015 galaxy print — and more brands as well! — that’s been seen on every celebrity from Diane Kruger, Ashley Tisdale, Marion Cotillard, and (to infinity and) beyond.
