1. Amber Valletta
Always a style reference, Valletta rocked a total look from Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello at the InStyle Awards 2018, held in LA.

2. Jane Fonda
The Oscar-winning actress wore a long-sleeved white lynx printed and draped jersey evening dress from the Roberto Cavalli autumn/winter 2018-19 collection.

3. Emilia Clarke
Your favourite Khaleesi showed up at the Persol & BFI London Film Festival Awards Party in a total look by Dolce & Gabbana. The British “Game of Thrones” actress, and face behind the Italian brand’s new fragrance opted for a long black coat worn over a waistcoat and trousers, teamed with a white shirt and floral silver tie. Her pop art clutch bag added more superstar vibes and vibrant colour.
4. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
The bombshell model dazzled in a Givenchy autumn/winter 2018 dress designed by Clare Waight Keller while attending the InStyle Awards in LA. The English Huntington-Whiteley, who is also a designer and entrepreneur, paired the flapper-style pale gold sleeveless dress with gold bugles and fringes with nude calf leather sandals by the same label.
5. Olivia Culpo
Miss Universe 2012 demonstrated the power of plaid while she was at LA’s Getty Center Museum for the InStyle Awards 2018. Culpo, a Rhode Island native, donned a grey double-breasted coat cinched with a long belt with matching trousers by Kate Spade New York. Her silver Louboutin sandals topped off the look perfectly.
6. Rosamund Pike
The Hollywood starlet chose a Givenchy Haute Couture spring/summer 2018 outfit, designed by Clare Waight Keller, to attend the UK premiere of “A Private War” at the 62nd BFI London Film Festival. Pike, who plays war journalist Marie Colvin in the movie, wore the black knitted silk bodysuit and hand-embroidered hand-cut bonded lace skirt with 3D lace flowers with a black tailored wool coat. A patent leather belt and platform leather shoes were the accessories du jour.
7. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex
During a state reception and dinner hosted by the President of Fiji, mother-to-be Meghan Markle stunned in a floor-length cape dress in bluette stretch heavy crepe by Safiiyaa Gingko. As a nod of respect to the island nation, the glowing Duchess of Sussex picked out the most stunning shade, ‘Fijian Blue.’ Her dangling diamond earrings were the perfect royal addition.
8. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge
Another royal ramped up the style stakes in a stunning off-the-shoulder bouclé-tweed midi dress during the opening of the V&A Photography Centre at the Victoria & Albert Museum. The radiant mother-of-three accessorised the dress, which had touches of burgundy and purple and pearl-embellished buttons, with a burgundy ribbon around the waist and plum coloured velvet Jimmy Choo pumps and box clutch.
