Anna Dello Russo In Oscar de la Renta and Giovanna Battaglia In Prada – Front Row @ Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014

Street Style - Day 6 - New York Fashion Week Spring 2014

Anna Dello Russo and Giovanna Battaglia made quite the pairing, as they entered the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014 show together on Tuesday during New York Fashion Week.

Although her Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 striped gown has already been seen on Fan Bingbing and Jelena Ristic, Anna flaunted it anyway. The ‘Vogue Japan’ fashion editor styled her Oscar differently with rows of bangles and the ‘La Grand Odalisque Masterpiece Pendant’ necklace by Noor Fares fine jewelry.

Still, I couldn’t help but wonder why this unorthodox fashion chameleon couldn’t find a gown that hadn’t made not one, but two, prior appearances. But such is her unpredictable charm.

Meanwhile, Giovanna gave us a Prada 2013 off-the-shoulder plaid dress. The stylista pared down the runway look’s sassy-schoolgirl ways by skipping the red sweater and by adding some retro flair with a brown leather belt and black T-strap Gucci pumps.

Front Row @ Tory Burch Spring 2014

Front Row @ Tory Burch Spring 2014

Tory Burch’s Spring 2014 show, held today during New York Fashion Week at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, saw a charming and fresh set of exits parading down the watery-blue catwalk. The ladies in the front row launched their own charm offensive, too.

Emmy Rossum: The actress was the epitome of preppy-chic in her navy-blue Tory Burch Resort 2013 ‘Sandy’ lace-embellished sweater and ‘Davis’ leather leggings. She adorably styled the look with Tory Burch’s ‘Gracie’ pumps, the ‘Sparkle’ square frame clutch—and a perfect red lip. But her best accessory may have been her camera, as she snapped away documenting all the runway action.

Rashida Jones: Wearing a veritable garden bouquet, the actress put on a blooming ‘Kaley’ dress that also hailed from the Tory Burch Resort 2013 collection. Pointy, black gladiator-inspired heels, as well as a bold red clutch and crimson lippie, were punchy if not slightly harsh counterpoints to the pastel mini-frock.

Anna Dello Russo: The fashionably eccentric editrix skipped the Tory Burch trend, instead showing us a Saint Laurent Fall 2013 dress. The pink rose-patterned frock was just too twee, even with its black bow and those heavily embellished, studded black boots, which couldn’t put the rock star in this look.

‘Ballo in Maschera’ to Celebrate Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda

Anna Dello Russo

Leave it to drama kings Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana to top off the recent haute couture shows with an elaborate flourish. The design duo orchestrated ‘Ballo in Maschera,’ an extravagant Venetian masquerade ball held in the halls of the historic Palazzo Pisani Moretta along the Grand Canal last Saturday. A collection of brilliantly costumed guests, each having received a mask created by the designers, arrived by gondola or boat to celebrate the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Fall Winter 2013/14 presented in Venice, Italy.

Anna Dello Russo: ‘Understated’ is not in this ‘Vogue’ Japan editor’s vocabulary, so it’s only natural that she put the costume in this costume party with a spirited ship fascinator atop her expansive wig. Flaunting a period costume with layers and layers of ruffles and piles of frou, ADR was definitely the fashion queen of the evening.

Anna Dello Russo In Altuzarra – Armani Privé Fall 2013 Couture Show

Anna Dello Russo In Altuzarra - Armani Privé Fall 2013 Couture Show

Anna Dello Russo made another stop on her haute-couture rounds, turning heads at the Armani Privé Fall 2013 show at Theatre National de Chaillot in Paris, France on Tuesday.

After showing us a repeat look at the Christian Dior Fall 2013 presentation, ‘Vogue’ Japan’s editor-at-large paraded out an adventurous Altuzarra Spring 2013 olive-green dress.

A worldly, exotic romp, the design’s draped top was smattered with embellishment and a gold-foil stamp—for that Midas touch—while the skirt was wrapped up in rows of fringe.

That Anna buckled herself into knee-grazing Gianvito Rossi for Altuzarra sandal-boots and strapped on metallic wrist cuffs only added another layer of fashion-warrior flavour to the mix.

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Several stars arrived at the Hotel Des Invalides in Paris, France this afternoon for the Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture presentation, with Marion Cotillard as the surprise absentee.

Jennifer Lawrence: The Oscar-winning actress and current face of Miss Dior was of course front row, getting a first look at her next red carpet look, no doubt. Jennifer selected a printed pastel-metallic guipure top with charcoal wool trousers with a stripe down one side and pleats down the other from the Resort 2014 collection. Black Dior sunglasses, shoes and a Dior fine jewelry ‘Bois de Rose’ bracelet. You are expecting me to say that I dislike the black pumps; well, I am too busy saving all my dislike for those pants. The colour, the style, the pleats: nothing about them work for me.

Miroslava Duma: After a pretty lacklustre weekend fashion-wise, Miroslava finally gives me a red carpet look I can love. The fashion editor selected a Dior Resort 2014 ivory bustier dress with blue-, orange- and pink-striped panels, which she styled with an Hermes black bag and lust-worthy blue pumps.

Olivia Palermo: The socialite, who is a regular in the front row at Dior, wore a full Dior look. Usually she marches to the beat of her own drum and will wear even high-street looks like Zara and Topshop to Fashion week; on this occasion she wore a Dior white jacket paired with a pink-and-blue organza skirt with all-Dior accessories, including cuffs on both wrists, an embellished belt, and a white clutch. I love everything bar the skirt. I almost wish the jacket was long enough to pass off as a dress.
