For the Vanity Fair Oscars party, only feathered Gucci would do for the Fifty Shades of Grey actress – with no jewellery required. 

“We talk a lot, we text,” she said to Vanity Fair of her relationship with [then] Gucci designer, Alessandro Michele. “I don’t feel he’s elsewhere when I speak to him, which I feel most of the time when I speak to people that work in fashion.”

The Wonder premiere, during October’s 66th BFI London Film Festival, saw this star showcasing a sheer, coral Valentino number. “When you feel good in the clothes that you’re wearing, you are unstoppable,” the Brit told The Outnet.

Kardashian took making an entrance to the next level when she wore Marilyn Monroe’s iconic 1962 ‘Happy Birthday’ dress to the Met Gala in May. The reality star dropped 7kg to fit into the delicate gown and said afterwards, “I’m just so grateful even for the opportunity.”

Glowing in Gucci at the 79th Venice International Film Festival – but potentially out of her comfort zone – the Don’t Worry Darling director told HOLR magazine, “My most comfortable state is when I’m wearing low-rise jeans, sneakers and a sweatshirt.”

Whoever said high-end fashion couldn’t have a sense of humour, too? Roberts rocked this George Clooney tribute dress by Moschino to The Kennedy Center Honors event in December. Love it!
