Held at Catch LA in West Hollywood, California, the 2017 Marie Claire Image Maker Award was one of the fashion events to open 2017. The event held Tuesday night, was organized to recognize key players in the fashion and beauty world according to BellaNaija.
With major fashion and beauty players in attendance, such as Olivier Rousteing of Balmain, Cindy Crawford, Janelle Monae, Kate Olsen, Kylie Jenner and many others, the Image Maker Award was indeed a star studded affair.
Presenting the award for the New Guard Stylist, Janelle Monae wore a white collared jacket complete with a bow, and her look featured a black wrap-around slung over the shoulder. She styled her hair in a twin bun on her head and accessorized with a small monochrome clutch purse and rings. Wasn’t really into Janelle’s look for the evening, there was a lot of details to the outfit, it looked confusing.
Kylie Jenner, with her dark soft wavy hair looked good wearing glam makeup ostensibly from her line of beauty products. The Reality TV star was seen wearing a two piece purple dress consisting of a crop top and a full length skirt with side cutouts. The piece featured leaf like details that hung around her. While the color was okay on Kylie, the dress was hardly flattering. It made the Kylie Lip Kit entrepreneur look bigger and instead of giving out the intended sexy and youthful vibe with the bare tummy and cut outs, the outfit gave off a gritty unfinished look. It was a far cry from Kylie’s slaying sexy and glam look.
Cindy Crawford was sophisticated and classy in a black floor lenght gown with sheer sleeves and panels. The super model left her glossy hair loose adding a youthful, fun and easy look to her ensemble. The cut outs at her neckline gave off a sexy, daring vibe.
Lisa Kudrow missed the mark in a black above the knee length gown, complete with white collars and black hose. We don’t know if she was role playing as she was dressed like a school girl from a private boarding school or she just had nothing else to wear😩.
Jessica Alba was another attendee who ditched sexy for class and elegance in a suit with cut outs on the sleeves and flared pants.
My favorite for the night was Shay Mitchell in a black jumpsuit featuring a very feminine wrap at the waist, one shoulder and sexy cut outs at the chest. The design details on the jumpsuit did a lot at emphasizing Shay’s assets in a sexy and classy way. Her look was not too much nor too less, just right.
