Saks Fifth Avenue Cocktail Reception For Vionnet – Ginnifer Goodwin In Vionnet

Last night Saks Fifth Avenue held a cocktail reception for the French fashion house Vionnet who’ve had an amazing revival over the past few months.

The event was attended by Anna Wintour, many of New York’s socialites and actress Ginnifer Goodwin.

I’m blown away by Ginnifer.

She looks outstanding wearing at black velvet dress from Vionnet’s Fall 2010 collection.

The velvet makes it luxurious, whilst the cut-outs bring out her sexy side.

Goodwin’s look is completed with a pair of thigh-high ‘faux’ leather boots. If you look closely you can see that they have a small peep-toe.

The first real wow moment of the week, so Ginnifer bags herself a spot on the BDOTW poll.

    This look floored me. I cant believe that is Ginnfer Goodwin. This would be my first wow for her also! I so agree this is a BDOTW contender

    Too much `80 revival for me. Awful. I´m in pain

    Been waiting to see when Anna Wintour would wear that Prada coat

    WOW. amazing! everything from her hair to those great cut-outs to the fabric etcetc.

    but.. we cannot say the same for those horrendous boots anna wintour is wearing. really doesn’t go with her outfit..

    I’m so sorry….it’s giving me a headache. I just do not like it. She actually looks quite comical :S

    Her legs aren’t thin enough for those boots.

    Plus there is something fishy about the dress. I am not sure if it’s the hair (the model looks much better because her hair covers the shoulders, making the dress look less like it’s trying to strangle her), if it’s Ginny’s bad posing, if it’s the idea to overwork velvet in this way or the fact the lower cut-out is so much bigger than on the model.
    I am not liking this.

      The size of the cutouts do seem out of proportion compared to how the dress looks on the model. Overall, it’s an almost there look for me; I really do feel like Ginnifer stands out from more cookie cutter beauties…..

    Superbe … j’adore ça! She looks sophisticated, chic yet still young.

    Call me old fashioned but I don’t see the point in peep toe thigh high leather boots.

    Wow came to mind, too. I was thinking: Wow, how could someone go out in public with a dominatrix outfit on her body?
    Sorry. I find nothing redeeming about this garment.

    i really love this look from her edgy haircut to those fab peep toe boots, but i dont think she has enough attitiude to pull it off.

  11. michelle April 7, 2010 at 15:45 #

    one more thing,anna wintour take those boots off right now!!

  12. danielezka April 7, 2010 at 16:11 #

    love the dress. hate the boots. they are too loose.

  13. kim April 7, 2010 at 16:11 #

    BDTOW definitely. She shows an edgy side , which is great. looooove the boots and hair.

  14. Chloe April 7, 2010 at 16:12 #

    Sadly, I hate it!

  15. Jennifer April 7, 2010 at 16:14 #

    I LOVE this look! Ginnifer is rocking it out. I ignore all the naysayers.

  16. Empress April 7, 2010 at 16:20 #

    WOW. Love Ginnifer’s new approach to fashion she’s really grown on me! And the dress, someone else is really going to have to work hard to beat her for best dressed this week.

  17. ber April 7, 2010 at 16:23 #

    I’m trying, but I don’t like this at all. It doesn’t suit her at all.

  18. DY April 7, 2010 at 16:29 #

    I think it looks terrible. The boots particularly.

  19. Elaine April 7, 2010 at 16:32 #

    I like the hair and thats about it unfortunately

  20. Elise April 7, 2010 at 16:49 #

    I loooove this look, she looks incredible. I’m not fan of the boots, but the dress is so pretty !

  21. Amelia April 7, 2010 at 17:07 #

    personally, I think she looks hideous

  22. LeeAnn April 7, 2010 at 17:08 #

    Love the dress not the boots . Speaking of boots why is Anna murdering the Prada coat with those awful suede boots-did she just have her veins done or something ? How could she get a look so wrong ? it is her day job.

      Why is is whenever I read your comments I have a drink in my mouth.

      I have to wipe down my computer again :D

  23. _danny (aka modman) April 7, 2010 at 17:45 #

    I love the outfit and she definitely owns it. But more than anything, I love her posture, her confidence.. it DEFINITELY makes the outfit that much better!
