Altuzarra For Target Event

Altuzarra for Target Celebs

The Altuzarra for Target launch event was held in the midst of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Skylight Clarkson Square in New York City on Thursday (September 4). Among the chic set toasting Joseph Altuzarra’s collaboration with the mega-retailer were a trio trendsetting gals, including Naomi Watts, Naomie Harris and Keri Russell.

Naomi Watts: The actress wore a simple yet striking crimson-hued Altuzarra For Target V-neck wrap-style dress with a tonal fringe belt paired with black Christian Louboutin sandals. The real power of this looser, languid silhouette was in its red colour, which was lovely on the blond Naomi, who kept her hair and makeup fresh and natural to lighten the look.

Naomie Harris
: Opting for a shorter hemline on her satin jersey dress, Naomie stepped out in a bold, python-printed Altuzarra For Target dress, complementing its warm, desert hues with tan-coloured Christian Louboutin pumps and an ecru clutch. Breezy waves and a glossy pink lip provided a pretty finish.

Keri Russell: Selecting a forest-green Altuzarra For Target trench with a statement collar and contrasting black sleeves, Keri kept it on the casual side, pairing the coat with distressed, cropped denim and camel pumps. It’s a far different look from the dress-wearing darlings, but still effortless and chic—do you agree?

Julianne Hough In Zimmermann – Extra

Julianne Hough In Zimmermann Resort - Extra

Julianne Hough was at the University CityWalk in Los Angeles, California on Thursday (September 11), where she also made an appearance on ‘Extra.’

Still embracing a summery vibe, she wore a Zimmermann Resort 2015 cutout, cold-shoulder frock featuring a colourful mix of floral prints and patterns.

It was an adorable piece, yet I wasn’t crazy about the fit of the bodice area, which simultaneously seemed too tight and too loose.

She accessorized with an on-trend, star-laced ear cuff and metallic-gold Monique Lhuillier sandals rounded out the look, alongside a fresh beauty look with her pretty pink lip and wavy bob.

Lily Aldridge In Sally LaPointe & Donna Karan – US Weekly’s Most Stylish New Yorkers of 2014 Party & Victoria’s Secret Hosts Russell James’ ‘Angel’ Book Launch

Lily Alridge In Sally LaPointe & Donna Karan -  US Weekly’s Most Stylish New Yorkers of 2014 Party &  Victoria's Secret Hosts Russell James' 'Angel' Book Launch

Lily Aldridge strutted out a fashion double-feature, with two looks for two events on Wednesday (September 10) in New York City. She made appearances at both Us Weekly’s Most Stylish New Yorkers of 2014 party and the Russell James “Angel” book launch, which was hosted by Victoria’s Secret.

Us Weekly: First up, the model selected a Sally LaPointe Fall 2014 black silk wool degrade, pleated bustier dress. On some, this may have been an awkward length. But she carries off the simple, structural statement beautifully, accessorizing with vampy black heels. My favourite part, though, was her fun ‘Lily’ clutch by Edie Parker, which puts some spirited attitude into the look.

Victoria’s Secret: Another party, another LBD. This time, her Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2014 sparkling, embellished gown struck a sexier chord with its sheer overlay detail. She took a similarly straightforward approach to the styling, with hardly any jewels and a kohl-rimmed eye.

Which sultry-sophisticated black dress caught your eye?

Karolina Kurkova In Camilla and Marc – Victoria’s Secret Hosts Russell James’ “Angel” Book Launch

Karolina Kurkova In Camilla and Marc - Victoria's Secret Hosts Russell James' Angel Book Launch

Karolina Kurkova attended Russell James’ “Angel” book launch, hosted by Victoria’s Secret on Wednesday (September 10) in New York City.

It’s safe to say that this Camilla & Marc Resort 2015 dress was not what I was expecting this Victoria’s Secret angel to wear—and I wish she hadn’t.

I’m guessing she was going for a punk-grunge aesthetic, what with the plaid, the Jennifer Fisher choker necklace and the wet-look, stringy hair.

But the shapeless, strapless silhouette and strange black skirting did nothing to enhance this statuesque stunner’s figure. I remain perplexed at this ill-suited style selection, but will count it as an off day, whilst remembering far more striking statements such as her recent Fashion Rocks 2014 ensemble.

At least she didn’t wear black pumps. The sunny yellow heels are the only bright spot here.

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.
