Peter Pilotto For Target Launch

Peter Pilotto For Target Launch

The Peter Pilotto for Target launch event took place in New York City on Thursday (February 6). Having seen the collection up close myself at a dinner party hosted by Net-A-Porter.com (who will be carrying the entire line) in London last week, I was excited to see some of our favourite stars wearing the pieces.

As you would expect, all the pieces feature prints, which is very much the design duo’s signature.

Diane Kruger: The German actress worked a lace-sleeve printed blouse and step-hem skirt striped-and-floral-print ensemble with great aplomb. Having seen Diane master this look, which she styled with a Charlotte Olympia clutch and black ankle-strap pumps, I will be adding these two pieces to my collection of Peter Pilotto for Target pieces I already own.

Taylor Schilling: The blonde actress is wearing the same Peter Pilotto for Target lace-sleeve dual-floral-print dress that I own. You won’t be surprised to learn that I will not be styling mine with black pumps.

Alexa Chung In Topshop – Hugo’s

Alexa Chung In Topshop - Hugo

Alexa Chung was spotted out with friend Pixie Geldof headed to Hugo’s in LA to grab some lunch on Friday (January 31).

Sporting scabby knees, the TV personality wore a three-quarter-length-sleeved black-and-white gingham Topshop smock dress.

Perhaps it was a mild day, as Alexa styled her look with a heavy black wool blazer, with her favourite accessories rounding out her look including her Dolce & Gabbana ‘Agata’ bag and Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ flats.

Signature purposely messy tresses and a bold red lip provided the finishing touches.

Alexa Chung In Vintage Balenciaga – InStyle and Warner Brothers Golden Globes Awards Party

Alexa Chung - InStyle and Warner Brothers Golden Globes Awards Party

Alexa Chung attended the 2014 InStyle and Warner Bros. Golden Globe Awards post-party on Sunday (January 12) in Beverly Hills, California.

I was surprised to see her in town for the Globes, but not surprised to be disappointed by her vintage Balenciaga dress which was from Decades.

The dress isn’t bad per se but it’s all wrong for Alexa, making her look older and a damn sight frumpier as a result.

It’s like that pre-worn wedding dress a women receives from her mother or a grandmother once she’s announced her engagement, to be told ‘you just need to take it in and it will be perfect’.

The updo doesn’t help the matronly vibe, but she did try to perk up the look with red lippie and a Dolce & Gabbana ‘Agata’ bag.

Alexa Chung In Stella McCartney – British Fashion Awards 2013

Alexa Chung In Stella McCartney - British Fashion Awards 2013

Alexa Chung took to the red carpet at the 2013 British Fashion Awards, hosted on Monday evening at the London Coliseum in England.

The British starlet perhaps unsurprisingly skipped the gown, instead staying true to her style personality in a short frock; a pale ballet-pink Stella McCartney Fall 2013 embroidered number. The strapless, sweetheart neckline was outlined with blazer-like lapels, which inserted a structured edge to this super-short mini dress.

She grounded the look with a bold pair of black Burberry ankle-strap wedge heels and a black-and-white checquered clutch, further offsetting the daintiness.

While she expectedly skipped the jewels, the girly tone came back in force with her pretty makeup—the rose-red lacquered lip was the main attraction—and soft waves.

Should Alexa have rocked a more formal gown, or do you approve of her leggy entrance?

Who Wore Erdem Better…Alexa Chung or Camilla Belle?

Who Wore Erdem Better Alexa Chung or Camilla Belle

Thankfully Alexa Chung and Camilla Belle were not attending the same event yesterday, because they wore the same Erdem Fall 2013 dress.

Technically, Alexa wore it first as she donned this silk-organza Erdem dress, which pays homage to botanical chic, at the signing event celebrating the launch of her new eyeliner and mascara set for Eyeko at Selfridges in London.

Cat-eyes, a simple updo and black pumps completed her look.

We had a second chance for this frock to take our breath away when Camilla Belle attended the dinner party hosted by Lisa Love and NARS at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, California in honour of designer Erdem Moral?o?lu.

Because she’s oozing femininity, plus she allowed for the flawless silhouette to flow and improved on Alexa’s uninspiring styling, Camilla wins very easily for me.

Alexa Chung In Carven – Eyeko Makeup Launch

Alexa Chung In Carven - Eyeko Makeup Launch

Alexa Chung attended the photocall to launch her new makeup collection in collaboration with Eyeko at Selfridges in London earlier today.

The TV presenter wore all black, selecting a look from Carven’s Resort 2014 collection. She clearly has a penchant for French dressing as this is her second look from this collection.

Her black sleeveless grid broderie anglaise dress featuring a full skirt with slash pockets at the hips was styled with a black lining instead of the print lining we can see in the look book.

Keeping the look super simple to ensure all eyes were on the product she was selling, she styled her look with a heart-shaped pendant necklace and her favourite Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ flats.

Her famous cat-eyes, which landed her this deal, and a ponytail with face-framing tendrils completed her look.
