Red Carpet Fashion Awards

As host of the ‘Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations’ Costume Institute Gala, held in New York this evening, Anna Wintour was the first to arrive on the red carpet with her daughter, Bee Shaffer.

Anna surprisingly didn’t wear Chanel this year; instead she opted for a Prada custom-made gown with a gold lobster motif.

Wearing her favourite beaded necklace, and Manolo Blahnik kitten heels, no doubt, the Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue completed her look with a white fur cape.

Bee, who always wears a dramatic gown for this event, didn’t let us down by looking equally beautiful wearing an Erdem Fall 2012 gown.

The blue, black and white gown with embroidered lace had a V-necked line and a beautiful train.

Bee lets her beauty shine through with minimal makeup and stunning chandelier earrings.

What a great way to kick-start proceedings.

Here are a few words I never thought I would hear myself say: Anna Wintour in Versace.

The American Vogue editor-in-chief with a love for all things Prada, Chanel and Marni donned a look from the Versace Fall 2012 collection whilst stepping out to the ‘Evita’ opening night at the Marquis Theater in New York City.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe this is a Versace first. Well, at least in my blogging lifetime.

If it weren’t for her trademark Manolos, sunglasses and bob, I don’t think I would’ve believed that Wintour was wearing Versace.

Her cross macramé long-sleeve sheath dress with a high neckline was accented with a beaded necklace.

This was really a night for firsts, because I can’t recall ever seeing Anna carrying a clutch either. She usually makes do with just her Blackberry.

Is Anna revamping her style?

We will have to wait and see.

Anna Wintour posed alongside Donatella Versace at her exclusive launch party to celebrate the new Versace Étoile De La Mer sunglasses collection in Paris, France during Couture Fashion Week.

The editor-in-chief of American Vogue wore a Tom Ford Fall 2011 dress.

My guess would’ve been that her brown floral print pleated dress was worn with her favourite Manolo Blahnik kitten heels, because she’s wearing her favourite beaded antique Georgian collet necklace – the two accessories seem to go hand-in-hand – but on this occasion she teamed the with tan boots.

I love the violet velvet sash worn by the model, but Anna’s look vastly improved without it.

What do you think?

Anna Wintour joined Diane Kruger and Cameron Diaz in Paris this morning for the Atelier Versace Spring 2012 presentation.

The editor-in-chief of American Vogue has already got her hands on the latest Pre-Fall 2012 collection like so many lucky celebs.

She wore a digital print shirt dress which she teamed with a white belt and a fur coat from the same collection.

Shades, black tights and brown knee-high boots completed the look.

Whilst I share Anna’s love of prints, I find this particular look visually unappealing from head-to-toe.

Does anyone else notice the darker roots and lighter tips of her trademark bob?

Coco Rocha: The model wore a Suno Fall 2011 dress. For someone who wore a gown to the H&M for Versace fashion show, this look is very casual for a Vogue-hosted fashion awards ceremony. The dress is alright, but the styling is hideous.

LaLa Anthony: The TV personality wore a Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2011 aqua dress. Her striking dress has a laser-cut detail on the hemline and a plunging neckline. I love her accessories, especially her multi-coloured clutch.

Tory Burch: Despite having a selection of gorgeous looks to pick from her own collections, Tory wore a Christopher Kane Kirsi wool-crepe dress from the Fall 2011 collection. The dress, with a scalloped green and blue gel-filled PVC collar, pocket trims and ruched sheer tulle yoke, was teamed with simple black ankle strap pumps and a matching clutch.

Jessica Stam: The supermodel added a gorgeous statement necklace to add a punch to her sexy Boy. by Band of Outsider Resort 2012 suit. Her tuxedo jacket with leather lapels was paired with black tapered pants and black patent ankle-strap Louboutins.

Bee Shaffer and Anna Wintour opted for colourful prints by British-based designers whilst attending the London Show Rooms LA closing cocktail event at Mondrian in West Hollywood, California yesterday.

Bee wore an abstract print Peter Pilotto Resort 2012 dress which she teamed with Roger Vivier Rose n’ Roll sandals.

I almost fell off my chair when I saw Anna wearing black knee-high boots with her Erdem Spring 2010 dress.

I guess her nude Manolos are only her ‘go-to’ summer shoe.

A black cardigan worn over her shoulders and her favourite beaded antique Georgian collet necklace completed her look.
