Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012 Presentation

Most Resort collections are only showcased via Look Books on Style.com, but Salvatore Ferragamo presented their Resort 2012 collection in some style in New York City yesterday.

The presentation took place at the James B. Duke Mansion, which is the former home of glamorous American heiress, Doris Duke.

Their front row was just as glamorous as the Fifth Avenue location, as Eva Mendes, Freida Pinto, Ashley Greene and Teresa Palmer took their seats wearing head-to-toe Ferragamo.

Eva Mendes: The Latin beauty wore a two-tone Ferragamo front twist dress. She really went to town by adding a lot of jewels to her look which include an oversized ring, bangles and gorgeous earrings.

Freida Pinto: The Indian actress was radiant wearing a summer chic Ferragamo look which included printed halter top with a white pencil skirt. I wasn’t surprised to see Freida at this event as she wears Ferragamo heels as often as Angelina Jolie on the red carpet. She usually opts for pumps, but she wore Ferragamo brown wedges on this occasion.

Ashley Greene: The Twilight star looked very sophisticated wearing an ivory belted Ferragamo wrap front dress. I love her for having fun with her accessories on this occasion. Bold red cap toe pumps and a houndstooth Ferragamo clutch from the Fall 2011 collection completed her look.

Teresa Palmer: The Australian actress went one step further, by wearing a Ferragamo houndstooth dress from the Fall 2011 collection which has a deep plunging neckline. Classic Ferragamo black pumps and a silver clutch completed her look.

They all look equally fabulous. I couldn’t pick a favourite. If you twisted my arm I could only narrow it down to Freida, Ashley and Teresa.

  • MReid

    Eva looks fantastic, she would have been perfect without the heavy shoes. Sigh. I’m beginning to develop your aversion to disappointing shoe choices.

    • Fashion Critic

      lol…heavy shoes do way down a look

  • Kaz

    All the ladies look great – very classy – but I think Eva looks the best. Her dress is very sexy.

    Karlie’s blue dress is divine, in fact I love the whole collection! How much for the entire thing, do you think? 🙂

  • Alina

    I really like Ashley’s look. LOOOOVE the hair.

  • mol

    They all look nice but I love Freida’s look the best.

  • Olivia

    and where’s Emma Roberts? 🙁

  • Sharon

    1-Eva, 2-Teresa, 3-Freida. I don’t like Ashley’s look at all. Too boxy and blah

  • Christine

    Eva. Hands down.

  • anamika

    All 4 for me

    Eva mostly i love women who wear jewels xxxxx

  • They all look great, but Ashley is my favorite.

  • Karis

    Ashley is my favourite – sophisticated and event appropriate – although all four ladies look great. Have similar pieces to what Ashley is wearing in my wardrobe so might try copying this look for work tomorrow!

  • Dazzle

    Ashley hands down looks the best imo. Love the dress,perfect hair&makeup and a fun pop of color on her feet. She is def the front runenr for BDOTW for me.

  • Th

    really? eva’s is my favorite..

  • Emma

    They all look good. I was going to pick Ashley as best dressed until I saw the shoes. They ruin the entire thing for me, I’m glad that she opted out of wearing black pumps, but those pumps are just bad. She should take a cue from Gwyneth Paltrow and Leighton Meester they know good shoes

  • dee

    I think both of the blue dresses from the collection are great. As far as the ladies in attendance. I think Eva looks the best. I really like her knotted dress and it looks great on her. I wish she wore sandals though.

  • maria

    my favourites are Eva and Freida. I am not a big fan on houndstooth, especially in summer.

  • robbie

    all 4 of them look gorgeous but there is something so amazing about eva, she just oozes sex appeal.

    that silver look with the fringing is A-FRICKIN-MAZING!
