Citymeals-on-Wheels 27th Annual ‘Power Lunch for Women’

Citymeals-on-Wheels 27th Annual Power Lunch for Women

On Friday, Citymeals-On-Wheels hosted its 27th annual Power Lunch for Women at The Plaza Hotel in New York City — and as is to be expected, the stars in attendance dressed the part of “ladies who lunch.”

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host chose a nude-coloured Roland Mouret sheath with a simple black bow-tie sash at the waist. While cut at the knee, her cap-sleeved number showed off ample cleavage via a low boxed-out neckline — it’s certainly a sexier daytime silhouette, but one that she pulled off without a hitch. A gold pendant necklace and embellished pumps completed the look.

Brooke Shields: Just two days after Victoria Beckham wore her own tri-colour Fall 2013 dress, Brooke Shields stepped out in the same exact frock across the pond, styling it with black pumps, a textured black clutch, and gold cuff. While I love the bright pattern, this dress wasn’t the most flattering choice.

Debra Messing: The actress stepped out in a long-sleeved black dress with silver-band details at the waist and bodice. Her futuristic fashion statement — or attempt at one — was accessorized with large earrings, black clutch, black heels, and a silver smokey eye.

Knee-length hems aside, these looks ran the gamut. Have a favourite, or is this power lunch a fashion miss?

    I think all three looks are great. Certainly not BDOTW, but OK.

    This is the best I’ve seen Debra Messing look in a while. So, kudos to her.

      Agreed! She looks particularly good.
      Very flattering and interesting dress — also season and event appropriate.

      +2! I’ve not seen Debra looking this smashing in awhile! Liking this.

      Unfortunate for Brookie. Once VB has donned a frock, no one can ever duplicate it with any hope of measuring up.

      I think I would’ve preferred Padma’s look sans droopy black bow.

    I like Padma, she looks lovely.

      …glad she resisted wearing matching summery white pumps.
