Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada ‘The Great Gatsby’ Dresses Opening Exhibit

Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada ‘The Great Gatsby’ Dresses Opening Exhibit

There were many more celebs who joined Carey Mulligan and Katy Perry for the special exhibition of selected costumes designed by Miuccia Prada and costume designer Catherine Martin for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming film adaptation of ‘The Great Gatsby’ in New York City yesterday evening.

Alexa Chung: Fresh off the plane from her Vogue Festival London trip, the jet-setting TV presenter wore a black Miu Miu crewneck tunic featuring some gold detailing. Black loafers and a black clutch accessorized her outfit, with barely there makeup completing her effortless look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The indie actress stands out here wearing a bright-white Prada dress with ruffled details on the bodice and cuffs. Maggie’s choices are often hit or miss. This for me is a hit, although I’m not a huge fan of the platform sandals.

Florence Welch: Is it me, or does Florence’s Prada look have a touch of Saint Laurent about it? Maybe it’s the suit-and-hat combo which has now become synonymous with the brand. As always this is a stellar chic look from the British singer.

Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner

Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner

Chanel hosted a dinner party to celebrate the Tribeca Film Festival artists in New York City yesterday evening.

Alexa Chung: The TV presenter was of course at the event, wearing a charming beige tweed Chanel Spring 2013 dress with pearl buttons. Her styling was to be expected, with a Chanel quilted bag and dual-colour beige-and-black Chanel Mary Jane pumps.

Shala Monroque: The Prada/Miu Miu devotee clearly didn’t read the invite. The fashion editor opted to wear a Miu Miu nude embellished dress from the Spring 2010 collection, which she accented with a large beetle brooch. You may remember that Kerry Washington’s Golden Globe dress was inspired by this collection. I am usually a big fan of Shala’s style, but the heavy blazer, floral-accented Jesus sandals and blue bag are not working for me at all.

Kiernan Shipka: Out on a school night for the third night in a row, the young ‘Mad Man’ actress wore a denim dress with chequered trims from the Spring 2013 collection. Black booties and a hot-pink Chanel bag keeps this look youthful.

Alexa Chung In Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti - 2013 Coachella

Alexa Chung was one of the many stars who headed to Indio, California for the 2013 Coachella Music Festival.

The British presenter wore a Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Spring 2013 striped ensemble, which consisted of a sleeveless blouse with embroidered shorts.

A green denim jacket wrapped around her hips, flats and a studded Valentino bag and chic shades give the self-proclaimed tomboy’s look just the right amount of edge.

Who Wore Simone Rocha Better…Alexa Chung or Chloe Moretz?

Who Wore Simone Rocha Better Alexa Chung or Chloe Moretz

Alexa Chung gave the Simone Rocha Spring 2013 collection its debut at the 2012 British Fashion Awards back in November.

I’m not surprised that Alexa was drawn to this sheer organza daisy-embroidered dress with a nipped-in waist as it has a schoolgirl vibe to it, which we have observed on several occasions as being her red carpet MO.

She styled the look with Nicholas Kirkwood ankle boots and a black Anya Hindmarch ‘Bathurst’ bag.

A few months later, young Chloe Moretz wore the same dress to the 2013 People’s Choice Awards, this time in a bright neon-yellow hue.

As much as I applaud her going for the more daring option, I was severely let down by Chloe when it came to her shoe choice, especially as she’s known for picking fancy footwear.

Alexa wins: I prefer her overall look from head to toe.
