Though pantsuits have been having a major moment in the last few years, this week's red carpet appearances showed that the flouncy skirts and dresses associated with more traditional expressions of femininity are far from being replaced. Whether stars went for sultry sexiness, ladylike dignity or princess-appropriate charm, there was hardly a pant in sight.
For the gaggle of models who appeared at a Unicef event in Italy, gowns were full-length with form-fitting silhouettes (as in the case of Emily Ratajkowski's lace dress), deep-plunging necklines (like Jasmine Tookes' Aadnevik number) or sheer fabric (as demonstrated by Caroline Daur and her Elie Saab tulle-skirted ensemble) that kept things spicy. Both Ruth Wilson and Jessica Biel went for asymmetrical, one-shouldered dresses covered in bold prints — polka dots and all-over florals, respectively — while Constance Wu did some print-mixing of her own in a more casual floral skirt-and-top ensemble. Freida Pinto went maximalist with a floral motif on her Elie Saab dress that seemed to fracture and spill out from the waist. Perhaps the most show-stopping look of the week, however, came from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, whose two-toned, jewel-encrusted silk Christopher Kane dress sat stunningly on her five-foot-nine-inch frame.
