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?

Juliette Lewis In Reem Acra - The Weinstein Company's Holiday Party

Juliette Lewis attended the Weinstein Company’s holiday party at RivaBella in West Hollywood, California on last Thursday evening.

The actress selected a white Reem Acra Resort 2014 dress with contrasting black lace cap sleeves, which she paired with H. Stern drop earrings, a fuchsia Amanda Pearl clutch, and strappy black Jimmy Choo sandals.

A berry-coloured lip, rosy cheeks, and swept-back hair completed the look.

While I don’t think it’s one of her looks as of late, Juliette has proved once again that her style has evolved into something much more elegant and composed.

Are you enjoying her “grown-up” style, or are you wishing for a wild-side comeback?

Karolina Kurkova In Fendi - 2013 'Fashion For Kids' Insight Charity Fashion Show

Karolina Kurkova returned to the Czech Republic — her home country — for the ‘Fashion For Kids’ charity fashion show, held on Monday evening in Prague.

The model showed off her famously long legs in a structural white Fendi Spring 2014 minidress with studded embellishments.

With no other statement jewels or bag to speak of, she rounded out the look with black-and-silver Fendi platform heels and sleek hair.

While it’s hard to fault this ensemble — Karolina does look amazing — I’m not so crazy about the shoes. I would have liked to have seen her wear a sexy (read: strappier) heel instead.

Thoughts?

Relaunch Of The Zoe Report Dinner Party

Rachel Zoe hosted a dinner party to fête the relaunch of The Zoe Report at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles, California on Wednesday. The occasion drew an intimate crew of Hollywood’s PYTs dressed in — what else? — Rachel Zoe’s wares.

Holland Roden: The ‘Teen Wolf’ actress wore a Rachel Zoe Fall 2013 ruffle-hem dress with a white studded jacket from the designer’s Spring 2014, which she styled with nude Rupert Sanderson ‘Marquita’ sandals and a peach-coloured lip.

Lyndsy Fonseca: Wearing a two-tone Rachel Zoe Resort 2014 blazer and a coordinating black top and shorts set from Rachel Zoe Spring 2014, the ‘Nikita’ starlet tried her hand at tuxedo-inspired cocktail dressing — with moderate success, in my opinion. There’s something a little off about the proportions here; perhaps a more fitted blazer would have been better for this look. Lyndsy accessorized with a black clutch and orange-and-black ankle-strap pumps to finish.

Rachel Zoe: The woman of the hour — and due with her second child any day now — wore a black-and-white creation from her Resort 2014 line. She paired the look with her signature kohl-rimmed eyes, blunt bangs, and vintage Valentino earrings.

Molly Sims: The star selected a dusty pink Rachel Zoe Spring 2014 leather dress, styling it with black tights, black pumps, and long waves. There was nothing particularly offensive or standout about this look — a more dynamic shoe choice would have spruced things up.

Was this dinner party a fashionable hit or miss?

Roselyn Sanchez In Rani Zakhem Couture - Latin Grammy Awards 2013

Roselyn Sánchez attended the Latin Grammy Awards at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday evening.

The ‘Devious Maids’ looked nothing short of stunning in a metallic silver-beaded Rani Zakhem Couture Fall 2013 dress. The strapless gown featured a subtle sweetheart neckline, which inevitably put her toned upper half on display. Not a bad thing, really.

With sleek, straight hair, dark eye makeup, and oversize hoop earrings on top, Roselyn didn’t skimp on the glamorous accessories elsewhere. She also added a handful of sparkly, bejeweled bangles to each wrist, a fitting final touch to an already eye-catching look.

I’m onboard with this — are you?
