You may think that all the glamour headed to Cannes this week, well Iman & co., are proving that there is still a lot left in New York.
The supermodel is a veteran on the red carpet, so she knew that her emerald embroidered asymmetrical Oscar de la Renta Resort 2009 gown stands alone.
Minimalism is key with a statement dress like this one, so she wisely kept accessories to just a ring, and a clutch.
Ivanka Trump was the first of many to opt for a Carolina Herrera gown at this gala.
Her lapis blue metallic strapless gown, was from the recent Fall 2009 collection.
I would have loved to have seen her carry a pewter clutch, the black does nothing for me. The same applies to that large necklace.
Lindsay Price didn’t pick a show stopping piece like the previous two, but it needn’t have been, because her textured silk Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 teal gown, with a marigold bow detail, and cascading ruffles is so charming.
Her Lipstick Jungle co-star Kim Raver, did pick a show-stopping piece. Well it was show-stopping on the runway. On Kim, not so much.
This lapis blue and lavender gown, got lost in translation.
Her hair, make-up, and yellow gold cuff, all don’t work for me either.
Lynda Carter ages so gracefully. She was my heroine as Wonder Woman, and she still looks wonderful today wearing a Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 gown, with a fur shrug.
The lurex black and white rose print gown is accented with black organza ruffles.
Hilary Rhoda’s ivory Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 ruffled gown, had embroidered details on the waist and straps.
Belen Rueda wore it with a lot more conviction at the 2009 Goya Awards. On Hilary it’s just meh.
Since no one else is speaking up, I will say it. Coco Rocha you need to ditch the red hair. It’s starting to look very Ronald McDonald. Please return to your darker locks immediately.
Her teal off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 layered gown is exquisite, but I preferred it on the runway. Coco looks better wearing edgier pieces.
Veronica Webb’s Rachel Roy Fall 2009 champagne silk gown, just melts against her caramel skin.
I really like the asymmetrical neckline, which is balanced against the asymmetrical chiffon hemline.
We don’t need a look book to know that Rene Zellweger is wearing Carolina Herrera. Past experience, and that smoke jacquard material from the Fall 2009 collection is evidence enough.
I love the gown especially the dramatic skirt, but the posing is very editorial.
Eva La Rue is working this season’s nude trend to maximum effect.
Claire Danes opted for a Christian Louboutin silver sandals, with her silk Stella McCartney navy dress.
The swirling nature of the dress is interesting, but Claire fails to breath any life into it.
Deborah Roberts is so utterly captivating in this pink asymmetrical gown, I had to feature her.
The ruffled neckline might be a bit heavy, for some, but it’s an outstanding gown, which is event appropriate.
Mariska Hargitay’s teal and navy banded gown, looks a bit snug on her. This type of material can be unforgiving.
Kelly Ripa really lets me down here. She’s usually so colourful and vibrant. On this occasion she is so muted.
Not like her at all.
