Models @ 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Models @ 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Some of our favourite cat-walkers were among the mix of style royalty at the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City. The models definitely had their moment last night, strutting out a slew of bold-name designers and even bolder looks to match.

Adriana Lima: Donning a leggy and luxe Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy Fall 2013 confection, this Brazilian beauty did justice to the edgy designer—who was the CFDA International Award Winner—even with black bloomers peeking through the gown. A center-parted ‘do and glowing makeup finished the look. Fellow model Joan Smalls rocked a similar Givenchy sheer design at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala. Who do you think wore it best?

Miranda Kerr: This model mom made waves with a retro-modern frock by Proenza Schouler. The square neckline and fit-and-flare shape were nothing if not fun and provided the perfect palette for the trippy, painterly cerulean and verdigris hues. More sophistication came with a classic pair of black, triple ankle-wrap Stuart Weitzman heels, Jennifer Meyer jewels and a silver Stuart Weitzman clutch, along with a fuchsia lippie and low bun.

Joan Smalls: The lovely Latina wore a breezy white, strapless Givenchy gown. The matte white panel on the bottom created a sort of casual, sundress feel. But upon closer inspection, it was anything but beach-y with a corseted bodice and sheer lace-embellished skirt. The glittering choker-necklace added a daring, darker note.

Roberto Cavalli Cannes Dinner Party

Roberto Cavalli Cannes Dinner Party

Roberto ‘I am the party’ Cavalli hosted a party onboard his ‘RC’ yacht, anchored in the Old Port of Cannes yesterday evening, and he invited a few of his closest celebrity pals to enjoy an Italian fest and dance the night away Cavalli style.

Sharon Stone: The actress has been wearing a variety of Cavalli gowns during this festival but, on this occasion, she donned a white Cavalli three-piece suit with sequin lapels and pants with black lace accents. She wears the gowns just as well as these masculine pieces.

Olivia Palermo: The socialite opted for a heavily embellished long-sleeved frock from the Roberto Cavalli Fall 2013 collection. As you know, Olivia can’t live without a feather accent; this time they festooned her ankle-strap shoes and not her arm candy, which on this occasion was dual-coloured and studded.

Kylie Minogue: The Australian actress worked a lingerie-inspired Roberto Cavalli animal-print slip dress with black sandals with gold piping. Methinks this one is strictly for the boudoir.

Alessandra Ambrosio In Elie Saab & Stacy Keibler In Naeem Khan – De Grisogono Party

De Grisogono Party

Alessandra Ambrosio and Stacy Keibler joined Sharon Stone at the De Grisogono Party held at the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France yesterday evening.

Alessandra Ambrosio: The model wore an Elie Saab Spring 2013 yellow fully-embroidered gown featuring a sexy thigh-high slit styled with a signature tonal yellow belt, matching sandal and jewels by the host. Do you like the matchy matchiness of the look? Or should Alessandra incorporated another colour into this look to stop if feeling too one-note?

Stacy Keibler: The actress, who will be attending the amfAR Gala on Thursday, wore a stunning Naeem Khan gunmetal horizontal vine-beaded tulle slip gown from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection. A gunmetal Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch, sultry wavy locks and a red lips completed her look.

Both ladies wore De Grisogono jewels.

Who stands out here for you? The bold colour or the classic elegance?

Irina Shayk, Alessandra Ambrosio & Liu Wen In Roberto Cavalli – ‘All Is Lost’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Irina Shayk, Alessandra Ambrosio & Liu Wen In Roberto Cavalli - ‘All Is Lost’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Despite competition from Raf Simons at Dior, Roberto Cavalli is the go-to designer for starlets and models this Cannes Film Festival.

Ranging from the sublime to the near naked, the Cavalli gowns always give us something to talk about. We saw six different Cavalli looks yesterday; here are three more from the ‘All is Lost’ premiere this evening:

Irina Shayk: Some might say this is a typical Cavalli gown; overtly sexy, sheer, embellished with cut out details. I would say that even for Cannes, there is just too much on display.

Alessandra Ambrosio: The Victoria’s Secret model opted for more coverage wearing a silver fully sequined long-sleeve gown with a degrade gold hemline and an open back styled with de Grisogono jewels.

Liu Wen: In total contrast to the first two looks, Liu Wen was the picture of elegance wearing a royal blue strapless Cavalli devore gown styled with Chopard jewels.

With some designers you can tell they design for one type of woman. Judging by these three looks, Cavalli designs for all types of women from the attention seeking to the shy retiring types.

Coachella 2013 Events Round Up

Coachella 2013 Events Round Up

The first weekend of Coachella in California was a smash-hit—and a lesson in free-spirited fashion that plays by no rules. PYTs dotted the sun-drenched indie music scene, as they made the party rounds, proving that while music may be the star attraction, style obviously occupies the main stage, too.

Diane Kruger: The German actress went for grunge at the H&M Loves Music Coachella 2013 kickoff event at the Merv Griffin Estate in La Quinta, California, where she soaked up the action with boyfriend, Joshua Jackson. Naturally, she donned top-to-toe H&M with a Rolling Stones T-shirt, barely bum-covering patterned shorts and black suede, over-the-knee cowboy boots. Polished waves and a red pout managed to keep this look strangely chic.

AnnaSophia Robb: I nearly didn’t recognize the teen incarnation of Carrie Bradshaw, as she left her ‘Carrie Diaries’ character’s SATC fashion sense (and the Manolos) back in New York City. Instead, AnnaSophia wore a beach-y, striped Lacoste dress and a pair of sneakers for the LACOSTE L!VE 4th Annual Desert Pool Party in Thermal, California.

DJ Mia Moretti: This club kid was looking appropriately hipster-ish at the Harper’s BAZAAR Coachella poolside fete at the Parker Palm Springs in Palm Springs, California. The deejay rocked a denim and lace button-down, a pair of cutoffs and matching platform shoes. Large wooden hoop earrings and a complicated crochet hair band, which I’m still trying to figure out, topped off the look. Odd as it may seem, even Dior had a role in this patchwork outfit, as Mia carried a sleek perforated bag from the label.

Sophia Bush: At the H&M Loves Music Coachella 2013 kickoff event at the Merv Griffin Estate in La Quinta, California, the actress was feeling blue, as she coupled together some of the season’s boldest trends—from her navy midriff-baring top to her printed pajama pants and her leopard-print kitten bedroom slippers by Charlotte Olympia. Statement earrings, an embellished chunk of wrist candy and a blue purse sprinkled with gold hearts finished off this schizophrenic look.
