Sophie, Countess of Wessex In Antonio Berardi – British Wheelchair Basketball Announcement

Sophie, Countess of Wessex In Antonio Berardi - British Wheelchair Basketball Announcement

Sophie, Countess of Wessex was announced as Royal Patron for British Wheelchair Basketball in London earlier today.

When asked about the birth of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s son, an elated Sophie said she feels “ridiculously happy” for the new parents.

“I’m so excited for them both,” she said, smiling broadly. “It’s a wonderful event. Everybody’s absolutely thrilled as you can imagine.”

She wore a white Antonio Berardi form-fitting crepe dress which creates a beautiful hourglass silhouette and features cut-out details at the neckline.

The dress couldn’t be more perfect, so it’s a shame about the styling.

Her raffia clutch gets a pass, but the nude sheer tights and nude pumps combo lets down all the good work going on here.

You may remember that Kristin Davis wore a flirtatious fit-and-flare version of this dress on Leno last month.


You can buy Sophie’s Antonio Berardi dress in blue from Net-A-Porter International, Matches Fashion Global, Matches Fashion UK and Browns Fashion.

Solange Knowles In Prada – ‘Blue Jasmine’ New York Premiere

Solange Knowles In Prada - 'Blue Jasmine' New York Premiere

Solange Knowles attended the ‘Blue Jasmine’ New York premiere held at MOMA yesterday evening in New York City alongside Cate Blanchett.

I was completely crestfallen when I saw her in this head-to-toe Prada Spring 2013 look as there isn’t much I like about it.

Her mint-green top and skirt with floral appliqués are considerably more wearable than the complicated layered look which took to the runway, yet even Solange can’t sell me this muted version.

I wasn’t a fan of this collection and few pieces off the runway have piqued my interest.

Even with the Prada accessories, including a glittery bag and pink bow-accented sandals, I find myself being more excited about the return of her ‘fro.

Pace Wu In Elie Saab – P&G’s Pro Series Shampoo Line Promotion Event

Pace Wu In Elie Saab - P&G's Pro Series Shampoo Line Promotion Event

Pace Wu attended a commercial event which saw her unveiled as the new ambassador for P&G’s Pro Series shampoo line on Friday in Beijing, China.

With green being the colour of the brand’s logo and product, Pace selected a green Elie Saab gown for the occasion.

Her chiffon emerald-green gown with a lace patterned bodice was effortlessly styled with a gold bracelet and enviable glossy wavy tresses.

I know what you are thinking: this is a tad OTT for a launch of a shampoo line, but in this instance she is selling glamour and you can’t get more glamorous than an Elie Saab gown.

Esteban Cortazar Exclusive On Net-A-Porter

Solange Knowles, Brandy Norwood and Nicole Richie will be delighted to learn that Colombian-born designer Esteban Cortazar’s second collection is available exclusively on

For Resort the collection was full of creams, nudes and white piece. This time around the 23-piece Fall collection consists of a more muted palette of greys and blacks – so the question is, will this collection grab the eye of colour- and print-loving Solange?

The designer describes the collection as trans-seasonal, working throughout the year in different countries and climates globally; he purposely made each piece to have versatility, translating easily from day to night.

The sporty, yet luxe, separates include his signature draped tailored blazers, dresses with asymmetrical lines, tunics, mini dresses, fitted dresses, leather-trimmed skirts, a parka and some red-carpet-worthy gowns.

Taking his accessories collection up a notch from just shoes, Esteban incorporated jewelry this time, including rings, bracelets and a necklace.
