Louis Vuitton Monogram Celebration

Louis Vuitton Monogram Celebration

A host of stars joined Nicole Kidman on the red carpet for the Louis Vuitton Monogram celebration held at the Museum of Modern Art on Friday (November 7) in New York City.

Miranda Kerr: As you know, the model has been trying to shake off her known for style and present much edgier red carpet looks. While Miranda might be just wearing a sheer top and printed skirt from Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2015 collection, she’s not selling this look to me as she doesn’t strike me as an LV girl under the helm of Nicolas Ghesquière. The LV Fall 2013 or LV Spring 2013 collections are more suited to her ultra-femme style.

Jennifer Connelly: The actress is still going full steam ahead with the Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 collection, wearing a trompe l’oeil mini dress with lace tights and boots while carrying an LV minaudière. While I can’t deny how great she does look, I can’t help thinking how terribly bored her stylist must be at the moment to be working in such narrow confinement.

Charlotte Gainsbourg: Between Jennifer and Charlotte this LV Spring 2015 collection will be used up by Christmas, which might not be such a bad thing. Like a true Ghesquière disciple the French actress wore the runway look in its entirety, and while I have a been-there done-that feeling about this look, she’s working the hell out of it, therefore forcing me to buy what she’s selling.

Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen In The Row – 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

2014 CFDA Fashion Awards - Arrivals

Joined at the hip, Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen (I hope I got that right because I still can’t tell them apart) attended the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 2) in New York City, with both wearing black oversized pieces from The Row.

Ashley Olsen: Opting for a modest kitten heel, her all-black look was styled with a silver layered necklace and emerald-stone earrings.

Mary-Kate Olsen: Opting for a high pair of black satin and pvc lace-up Christian Louboutin ‘Nymphette’ sandals, her look is almost the same as her sister’s, except for the material and the split sleeves.

One day I will get the fascination, but until then *shrugs*

Mary-Kate Olsen In vintage Chanel & Ashley Olsen In vintage Gianfranco Ferré & – 2014 Met Gala

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen attended the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

While their kid sister Elizabeth Olsen opted for a summery hue, Ashley and Mary-Kate worked a dark colour palette.

As you know, I have probably never been a fan of their style, but on this occasion I found myself not shouting ‘next’ upon seeing Mary-Kate’s striped vintage Chanel gown and Ashley’s military-inspired Gianfranco Ferré.

Neither was unnecessarily oversized and both accessorized perfectly, with Ashley just edging out as my favourite here as I favour the sleek design.

My one wish, as always, is that they would stand apart on the red carpet so we could get a good look at their frocks.

The Sixth Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

The Sixth Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic took place on Saturday in Jersey City.

Last year’s event was so well turned out with stars wearing summery LWDs, but this year there was just a mishmash of looks, with not all seeming to befit the occasion.

Dree Hemingway: The model donned denim overalls, channelling her inner mechanic. She did style the look well with a Sophia Webster ‘Hold Me Speech Bubble’ leather clutch and platform heels.

Camila Alves: It’s been a while since we saw this style of Herve Leger dress on the red carpet. As beautiful as the TV host looks in this yellow-hued dress, all I can think about is Heidi Montag, who used to wear these dresses religiously.

Ashley Olsen: No surprises that the designer wore an oversized vintage look. While I do find myself liking this gold-embroidered red kaftan, which she styled with The Row accessories and Hermes shoes, a belt and some heels would’ve improved the look.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld: You may instantly recognise Julia’s Dolce & Gabbana floral frock. That’s because Lea Seydoux wore it last week during Cannes Film Festival. Julia styled her look with green wedges and a white Dolce & Gabbana bag. This is the only look I liked at this event.

Ashley Olsen In vintage Dior & Mary-Kate Olsen In vintage Chanel – 2013 Met Gala

Ashley Olsen In vintage Dior & Mary-Kate Olsen In vintage Chanel - 2013 Met Gala

Don’t be surprised that the Olsen twins opted to go vintage and oversized at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening; after all, this is their red carpet M.O.

Ashley Olsen: The designer’s beaded orange Dior Couture dress with a sheer overlay is a beautiful design, but for some reason made me think of one of Andre Leon Tally’s capes.

Mary-Kate Olsen: This look was my least favourite of the two; her Chanel beaded, drop-waist black dress would’ve been so much better without the fur-trimmed robe.

Which Olsen look works better for you?

Ashley? Mary-Kate? Or none-of-the-above?

One wonders if the words; belt, or waist-nipping mean anything to these girls.
