Dennis Basso Madison Avenue Store Opening

Dennis Basso Madison Avenue Store Opening

Stars gathered to celebrate the new Dennis Basso store on Madison Avenue in New York City yesterday evening. With the temperatures dipping outside, the designer couldn’t have picked a better moment to showcase his furs.

Debra Messing: The actress looks very content in her green mink coat, which she wore over a grey embellished cocktail dress which featured an on-trend sheer hem.

Brooke Shields: Sporting wavy locks, the actress opted to wear one of the designer’s embellished LBDs, which also featured a sheer hemline. Simple black pumps and silver jewels completed her look.

Olivia Palermo: While everyone else opted for a glam embellished frock, Olivia – as usual – marched to the beat of her own drum, wearing jeans and a black top, to which she added a Dennis Basso mink coat. Some of you haven’t been too enamoured with her red carpet choices lately, so how does this one fare?

    I love Olivia’s coat

    I love Dennis Basso on QVC. His styles are wonderfully couture and no animal died for the coat. I could never afford real fur and he still makes woman without means feel special.

    Do we know if these are real or faux?

      Very true 🙁

    Brooke looks beautiful. Only thing I would change would be her shoes. As someone with boat feet, shoes cut like that are just not flattering on all of us. I like Olivia’s shoes, the jeans seem out of place. Debra’s coat is beautiful and would probably look very chic on someone else. She just looks like she’s trying too hard.

    None of them look great, Olivia’s the best. I wish I could swap their shoes around: Debra’s go to Brooke, Brooke’s go to Olivia, and Olivia’s go to Debra. There, that’s better.

    Brooke Shields, nothing too much, simple, nice and sexy.

    Olivia looks great.

    I hope these are not real furs. :{

      They are mink. Makes me sick.

      They’re very very true, unfortunately. Olivia often wears furs and Brooke Shields has always support real furs. Plus, it’s very cold, and they are all without tights.

    Yikes, fur. Never a good look.

      +2. I think I missed the memo where this became OK again…

    Olivia looks the best.

    Oh my god what is that monstrous green thing that ate Debra Messing?

    At least with that pose, the coat is rather overwhelming for Debra, but I love the colours.
