Equipment Pre-Spring 2013 On ModaOperandi

What would a wardrobe be without the perfect silk blouse? Or, for that matter, the perfect Equipment blouse?

Fashionistas everywhere know the value of this beloved brand, and it has become a celebrity favourite with street style stars like Miranda Kerr.

Selections from Equipment’s Pre-Spring 2013 collection are now available on ModaOperandi.com. The trunk show ends on August 7th.

I highly suggest you check out ModaOperandi’s curation of this line, which features covet-worthy pieces that will prove to be wardrobe staples for years to come.

My personal favorite is the Long Sleeved Earl Blouse, which seamlessly blends the allure of a good basic with the playfulness of a floral print.

Jaime King In Stella McCartney – CW, CBS And Showtime 2012 Summer TCA Party

Yesterday, Jamie King attended the CW, CBS and Showtime 2012 Summer TCA fête in Beverly Hills, California.

The ‘Hart of Dixie’ star stunned in a look from Stella McCartney’s Fall 2012 collection with a Kate Spade New Yo’Hopper House Little Shyla’ clutch.

Her black-and-blue brocade lace blouse with matching ruffled skirt looks amazing on the actress, whose pale complexion and blonde hair are the perfect match for a bold and deep colour.

I will admit that a high collar does seem to be a bit of an odd choice for a summer party, but thanks to a short hemline on the skirt, the top doesn’t seem inappropriate for a July day.

I love the actress’s Jason Wu ‘The Egrette’ sandals, although I am partial to the original pair of platforms paired with the look on the runway.

Jaime’s strawberry lip and twisted ballerina bun top off her ensemble in a cute yet sophisticated way.

You may remember that Chloe Moretz wore another Stella McCartney bold brocade print look back in May, and I’m inclined to say that I like Jaime’s interpretation of the look a little bit better.

But what do you think?

Emmy Rossum In Zuhair Murad – CW, CBS And Showtime 2012 Summer TCA Party

Emmy Rossum posed on the red carpet of the CW, CBS and Showtime 2012 Summer TCA party in Beverly Hills yesterday.

The star donned Zuhair Murad Fall 2012 black and white lace cocktail dress that flattered her figure and fit flawlessly.

I love that the dress accents the waist and is finished with another peek of white lace at the bottom.

Emmy finished her look with a pair of Christian Louboutin ‘Claudia’ sandals. I think the ankle strap adds a bit of fun to an ensemble that could otherwise feel a little severe.

Side-swept waves and a red lip finished things off with a nostalgic feel that was not unwelcome given the classic cut of the dress.

Do you like Emmy’s lace-dominated look?

Gwen Stefani In Blumarine – Out In New York City

Gwen Stefani was spotted leaving her hotel in New York City yesterday wearing a look straight off the Blumarine Fall 2012 runway.

With this amount of leopard print, I would be inclined to dislike this ensemble had anyone else been wearing it.

But given Gwen’s history of wearing looks that only work on her, I have to give her credit for staying true to her personal aesthetic.

Gwen paired the look with a bold red lip and a demure pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps.

I’m going to have to vote yes for Gwen’s Blumarine outfit, but must admit that I would never try to replicate this look myself.

Do you think Gwen can pull off this daring amount of leopard print?

Kareena Kapoor In Emanuel Ungaro – ‘Heroine’ Promo Launch

Kareena Kapoor attended the promo launch of her new film ‘Heroine’ at the Cinemax in Mumbai on Wednesday.

The actress wore an Emanuel Ungaro jumpsuit from the Spring 2012 collection and a pair of gold Jimmy Choo shoes.

I am a huge fan of Kareena’s easy elegance, which is why I expected more from her than she gave with this look.

The top of the jumpsuit has been modified to reduce the plunge. As a result the natural drape presented on the model is lost on Kareena.

She pairs the strong red of her look with a swipe of equally bright lipstick, which makes it hard to notice anything besides the plethora of red surrounding her.

While I like the way she has her hair pulled back and the small details of her belt and bracelet, I wish she had chosen a more subtle piece for the carpet.

Do you like Kareena Kapoor’s jumpsuit? Or is there something else you would have rather seen her in?

Rachel Roy In Roland Mouret & Rachel Roy – ‘The Campaign’ New York Screening

Wednesday night designer Rachel Roy attended the New York screening of ‘The Campaign’ at Sunshine Landmark.

The New York based beauty wore a Roland Mouret Dugmanta black jumpsuit from the Spring 2011 collection.

Rachel added a blazer from her own Pre-Fall 2012 collection and a pair of Manolo Blahnik lace pumps to complete the look.

I absolutely love the blazer and the way the shoulders pick up the back from the jumpsuit. While I think Roland Mouret piece looks amazing on Rachel, I would have liked to see her accessorize it with a statement necklace to tone down the revealing nature of the top.

Her simple hair and makeup keep the look young and fresh, but to me her Manolo heels seem a bit too stern for the rest of the ensemble.

Do you agree? What do you think of Rachel’s look?
