The arrival of Gap’s Crazy Stripes collection in stores is always a cheerful reminder that the holidays are just around the corner. I have a real soft spot for all things colourful and especially crazy stripes, and this season I spotted an adorable sweater dress that I’ll be adding to my crazy stripe collection. While at the store, I also noticed that the incredibly talented Janelle Monae is fronting Gap’s 2017 Holiday Campaign, and now there’s an adorable video to go with those in-store posters. In the video Monae sings “You Got What I Need”, wearing the cutest striped shearling coat (NEED!), and surrounded by the best-dressed choir/backup singers. Watch it for yourself and check out Gap’s 2017 Crazy Stripes Collection in all its glory.

Over the last few weeks it seems that the world has gone insane, so in case you needed a distraction, here are some pretty celebrities wearing pretty gowns at the 2017 SAG Awards. Truth be told, I was pleasantly surprised to see some really exciting choices on the red carpet this year. Nicole Kidman wowed in a birds of paradise Gucci creation, Michelle Williams looked flawless in a glittering Louis Vuitton gown, while Black-ish star Yara Shahidi wore a delightful Naeem Khan beaded frock. Evan Rachel Wood made good on her promise to skip dresses this season and wore yet another impeccable Altuzarra suit, this time in rich blue velvet. Janelle Monae who’s also known for her beautiful suits chose an intricate CHANEL frock instead, accessorised with the cutest hair-do ever.
Michelle Dockery (aka Lady Mary Forever) wore a colourful striped Elie Saab gown (similar to Yara’s), and as someone who loves colour, stripes, and Downton Abbey, this was definitely a hit for me (though that hair was a tad too severe). Kirsten Dunst looked lovely in a bridal-like Dior gown (very appropriate for a newly-engaged star), while Thandie Newton’s Schiaparelli creation looked like it belonged in a museum…in a good way. And while I’m usually not a fan of the “naked” dress, Taraji P. Henson looked simply stunning in her Reem Acra gown. Lastly, I loved Claire Foy in The Crown, and perhaps my judgement is clouded by my adoration of the actress, but I quite liked the Valentino gown she wore on the red carpet (paired with gorgeous Tiffany & Co. earrings), even if the dress wasn’t my absolute favourite.
And there you have it, my SAG Awards 2017 Best Dressed. Share yours in the comments!
