Freida Pinto & Alek Wek In H&M Conscious Collection – H&M Munich Store Opening

Freida Pinto & Alek Wek In H&M Conscious Collection - H&M Munich Store Opening

H&M opened a new store in Munich, Germany on Wednesday (April 9), with Alek Wek and Freida Pinto in attendance.

Alek Wek: The H&M Conscious collection is yet to go on sale and this pretty lace frock is already on its third outing. Sophia Bush wore this dress at the launch; Jennifer Lopez wore it again sans beaded detailing on American Idol; and here we have Alek again wearing this dress, styling it with the beaded open-toe heels from the same collection. Third time’s the charm, or enough of this dress already?

Freida Pinto: The Indian actress gave us a look at a piece from the same collection which is yet to take to the red carpet. She wore a black sleeveless top enriched with white floral embroidery which, if this wasn’t an H&M event, I would’ve assumed was a Naeem Khan piece. Paired with wide-leg pants, she styled the look with the same beaded heels and a beaded shoulder bag, adding a pop of colour via her red lips.

Alek Wek In Marks & Spencer Autograph – The New York Observer Relaunch Event

Alek Wek In Marks & Spencer - The New York Observer Relaunch Event

Alek Wek attended The New York Observer Relaunch Event on Tuesday (April 1) in New York City.

The model donned a high street dress from Marks & Spencer’s Autograph collection, which UK readers will recognise is the same dress she wore in the ad campaign for the retailer which was shot by Annie Leibovitz.

MS-Leading-Ladies-Campaign

Her flattering white dress with a green-and-black brushstroke print, which is so beloved by the British public that it’s almost out of stock, was styled with black strappy sandals and a silver glitter clutch to give this daytime dress an after-dark flourish.

2014 amfAR New York Gala Models Roundup

2014 amfAR New York Gala Models Roundup

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2014 amfAR New York Gala held at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (February 5) in New York City.

Karolina Kurkova: The Czech model looked stunning wearing a black Armani dress slashed on both the thigh and bodice, with both enriched by beaded detailing. Neutral makeup and bow-accented Jimmy Choo ‘Escape’ sandals completed her look.

Ajak Deng: Also wearing black with breathtaking results was Ajak Deng. Gearing up for a busy fashion month, she started off on the right note wearing a sparkling Kaufmanfranco Fall 2013 gown with sheer inserts which is very much on the right side of sexy.

Dree Hemingway: While everyone was wearing a gown, Dree marched to the beat of her own drum, wearing a super chic Chloé Resort 2014 look featuring a navy top, white ruffled shirt and loose-fit pants. She was my second favourite at this event after Lily Alridge.

2013 American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Spring Gala

2013 American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Spring Gala

Here are a few more looks from the American Ballet Theatre’s Opening Night Spring Gala, held at the Lincoln Center in New York City on Monday evening.

Coco Rocha: It’s not surprising to see Coco wearing a Zac Posen strapless gown on the red carpet; what is surprising is how unrecognisable she now is.

Uma Thurman: I expected something far more glamorous from Uma considering her amazing Met Gala look just last week. Her long-sleeved floor-length Fendi Fall 2013 dress may have been looked upon more favourably had she opted for a statement piece to detract from those creases.

Ashlee Simpson: I was surprised to see Ashlee Simpson at this event; however, she scrubbed up nicely wearing a backless lace high-neck Alice + Olivia gown with a feathered peplum, which she styled with a Jimmy Choo clutch, ELAHN jewelry and emerald Ocnarf Sairutsa ‘Nualah’earrings.

Alek Wek: The supermodel joins the ever-growing list of celebrities who have worn a look from the Christian Dior Spring 2013 collection. You may remember that Shu Qi wore this same charcoal-grey tuxedo dress featuring notched lapels and a pleated skirt with shimmering blue and pink panels, sans bustier, earlier this year.

Ashlee is my favourite of this group, with Lucy Liu my favourite overall at this event.

5th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Here are the rest of the looks from the 5th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, held in Jersey City on Saturday afternoon.

Dree Hemingway: The stylish model, who can work just about any look, wore a white Dolce & Gabbana dress. Her beautiful fully embroidered long-sleeve dress with a sheer top was teamed with mahogany platforms. Needless to say I’m tres disappointed with her shoe choice.

Alek Wek: The supermodel wore a Shoshanna dress. Her gold embroidered dress with a pleated skirt isn’t really that short, but when you consider her 38-inch-long legs it appears short. I love the addition of the straw sun-hat and the sassy gold accented black strappy sandals.

Jennifer Morrison: The ‘House’ actress also let herself down with her shoe choice. I’m not sure what the thought process was when selecting these black sandals with her cute white Trina Turk belted dress.
