Natalia Vodianova & Olga Kurylenko In Christian Dior – Biennale des Antiquaires Pre Opening

Natalia Vodianova & Olga Kurylenko In Christian Dior -  Biennale des Antiquaires Pre Opening
Natalia Vodianova and Olga Kurylenko were both in attendance at the ‘Biennale des Antiquaires’ pre opening event at Le Grand Palais in Paris, France on Tuesday (September 9).

Natalia Vodianova: The model maintained her effortless approach to style in a Christian Dior white and black, one-shoulder silk gown that was elegant if safe. A white Dior clutch and glittering black earrings, along with a smoky charcoal eye and natural waves, completed the look.

Olga Kurylenko: Also dressed in Dior, the actress was lovely in a shimmering ivory satin dress with pastel-lavender side panels that reflected the lighting in the room. Her silver Dior clutch and metallic sandals were just as reflective. Glittering jewels, including a lariat necklace, statement cuff and diamond studs, were lovely—but I would have taken at least one piece off.

Michael Kors Spring 2015 Front Row

Michael Kors Spring 2015 Front Row

The front row of the Michael Kors Spring 2015 presentation on Tuesday (September 10) at Spring Studios, held during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City, featured a bevy of the designer’s darlings who dressed in their Michael Kors best for the show.

Jessica Chastain: Donning a black and oleander printed frock and black ‘Doris’ sandals, both from the Michael Kors Resort 2015 collection, the actress worked this sweet and charming look to perfection.

Cody Horn: The model-actress complemented the sporty-chic appeal of the white embellished t-shirt dress with peanut ‘Janet’ platform sandals, both from the Michael Kors Resort 2015 collection. A messy updo along with a silver embellished ‘Elsie’ clutch from the MICHAEL Michael Kors Holiday 2014 collection completed the ensemble. I don’t love the colour of the shoes with this look, but from the ankles up, it works.

Jessica Alba In Roland Mouret – The Honest Company Ultra Clean Room Unveiled at The Mount Sinai Hospital

Jessica Alba In Roland Mouret - The Honest Company Ultra Clean Room Unveiled at The Mount Sinai Hospital
Jessica Alba was at the Honest Company ‘Ultra Clean Room’ unveiling at Mount Sinai Medical Center on Wednesday (September 10) in New York City.

The actress was pretty in ultra-pink, selecting a magenta Roland Mouret dress that perfectly conveyed the impeccable, figure-grazing structure and folded detail that are hallmarks of the designer.

The approachable-chic look may be somewhat familiar, but it was well-suited to the occasion and those metallic pumps and bangles brought a layer of additional spunk, as did her bright smile and naturally radiant makeup.

Brit Marling In Proenza Schouler & Alexander McQueen – ‘The Keeping Room’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Brit Marling In Proenza Schouler & Alexander McQueen - 'The Keeping Room' Toronto  Film Festival Premiere

Brit Marling attended the premiere of ‘The Keeping Room’ at The Elgin on Monday (September 8) during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada.

Looking to the archives for sartorial inspiration, the actress cut a dramatic profile in an Alexander McQueen Spring 2007 ivory high-waist skirt, emblazoned with a striking black swallow print.

Simplifying the styling of the bird-and-branch piece from its theatrical and historical runway incarnation, she modernized this statement McQueen design with a Proenza Schouler on-trend black crop top.

Brian Atwood heels and a Lee Savage mini clutch accessorized the ensemble, yet it was her beauty approach that really provided the heightened sense of glamour with her glossy blonde locks and intense oxblood-red lip.

Rita Ora In Stéphane Rolland Couture – Fashion Rocks 2014

Rita Ora In Stéphane Rolland Couture - Fashion Rocks 2014

Rita Ora also made a grand entrance when she took to the red carpet at Fashion Rocks 2014, presented by Three Lions Entertainment, at Barclays Center of Brooklyn on Tuesday (September 9) in New York.

She took the opportunity to play an extreme game of dress-up in a Stéphane Rolland Fall 2014 Couture gown that was every bit of an abstract art piece and architectural feat.

The black silhouetted bodice and illusion lining transitioned to a backless design, accented by spindly embellishment, before giving way to a full, tulle-laced tutu skirt underscored by a train of sheer black chiffon.

Adding her own signature quirk factor, the songstress put plenty of sass into the avant-garde sophistication of the design, wearing her platinum locks tied into a row of knots atop her head.

This strange mohawk-esque moment didn’t belong anywhere near the gown, and if there was ever a time for Rita to rock her signature red lip, this was it. I also longed for the skinny belt seen on the model for a waist-defining finish.

As with many of her looks, I’m sure this one will be a divisive design. With better styling, this statement would have been one intriguing fashion sculpture to not soon forget.

Jennifer Lopez In Atelier Versace – Fashion Rocks 2014

Jennifer Lopez In Atelier Versace - Fashion Rocks 2014

Jennifer Lopez took an attention-grabbing turn at Fashion Rocks 2014, presented by Three Lions Entertainment, at Barclays Center of Brooklyn on Tuesday (September 9) in New York City.

Outfitting her toned silhouette in an Atelier Versace Fall 2014 design, the entertainer truly rocked the red carpet in this impossibly sexy black gown with metallic gold-plated detail.

Forget those massive hooped earrings, sleek-as-can-be ponytail, and shiny Thalé Blanc clutch, her main accessory here was that leg. If you’re experiencing déjà vu, you’re likely remembering her appearance at the 2013 Grammys, where that racy leg jut likewise defined her look.

Daring and dramatic, this was “hot” couture at its finest—with a spirit of excess that was so very Versace… and so very J. Lo. One thing’s certain, she can work a Versace number like no other, and Fashion Rocks was the place to do it.

Glam or overly gratuitous?
