My Interview With Becki Newton Backstage @ Brian Reyes

Backstage at the Brian Reyes Spring 2010 presentation I introduced myself to Becki Newton.

Her eyes widen as she asked “You’re the one who shows everyone one the red carpet That’s you? Oh my god.”

I started to search through my memory bank wondering if I had said anything bad about Becki, but I assured myself that I hadn’t and she continued, “Oh my god, you do such a great job.”

She introduced me to her stylist Annie, who also works at Elle, as Becki informed me that she introduced Annie to my blog. Annie told me that everyone in her office reads my blog.

Wow. My mind was blown. It was a real OMG moment.

Becki had said to Annie that my blog is a good way of tracking what everyone else is wearing.

Just when I thought she couldn’t compliment me anymore Becki said, “We love you. Do you understand that it’s the go to reference, you do an absolutely great job.”

“It’s dignified, but it still has humour which I really like because it’s funny, you don’t take it too seriously.”

With a twinkle in her eye she said, “Even when you’re not feeling it, you’re usually right…even when it’s me, so great job.

The Best From The Front Row @ New York Fashion Week

Thakoon

Ciara was easily one of my favourites at Fashion Week.

She looked so beautiful wearing a Thakoon wool crepe shift dress which had a contrast black chiffon lining and trim, paired with Louboutin pumps.

Donna Karan

Milla Jovovich’s striped Donna Karan Resort 2009 dress is so chic paired with silver pumps.

Altuzarra

I guess Altuzarra weren’t loaning out clothes for their star guests because Leighton Meester wore an eggplant Emilio de la Morena Fall 2009 dress with Proenza Schouler lace-up ankle boots…

…whilst Rachel McAdams wore a navy and white striped Boy by Band of Outsiders Spring 2010 skirt with a black top.

Charlotte Ronson

Jessica Stroup wore a flirty floral Charlotte Ronson Spring 2010 strapless dress which is so exclusive it wasn’t even seen in the Spring 2010 presentation.

She paired her dress with snake-skin strappy sandals.

Marc Jacobs

Lady GaGa wears the same Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 black cap sleeved dress embellished with jeweled stones, which Miss Piggy wore recently.

I wonder who the winner of that WWIB poll will be?

Tommy Hilfiger

I just love this red dress which Taylor Swift pairs with Stuart Weitzman black bow heels.

So vibrant.

Preen

Becki Newton wore a Preen Mixed Mono dress under a black blazer.

I would’ve loved to have seen this dress without the blazer to see more of its multi-print panel design.

Proenza Schouler

Leighton Meester doesn’t look to happy in her Proenza Schouler Resort 2010 ensemble and I don’t blame her.

Max Azria

Lucy Liu was elegant and classy as always wearing a cream fitted Max Azria dress.

Maggie Q’s Max Azria vibrant yellow dress really pops on her.

I love how she brings this strapless draped dress to life.

Celebrities At Marchesa’s Spring 2010 Presentation

I was in the same room as both Georgina Chapman and Blake Lively and didn’t notice they were wearing the same Marchesa Spring 2009 lace shorts. It’s like Pink and Shakira all over again.

The reason I didn’t notice is because I was in a room full of breath-taking gowns.

Neither seemed to mind as they had both worn the shorts in different ways.

Georgina paired her shorts with a plain tank top, whilst Blake wore the runway embellished jacket.

It’s also quite cute that they are wearing the same Christian Louboutin’s ankle booties too.

Alexa Chung’s Heidi braids were quite appropriate to complete the gypsy feel to her look.

She wore a black Marchesa Spring 2008 dress with stunning gold embroidered with a tan Mulberry Alexa Bag and black ankle boots.

Becki Newton wore an embroidered jewel neck short sleeve Marchesa dress with beige Christian Louboutin platform heels.

The dress really sparkled under the museums lights.

Can anyone confirm this Katherine McPhee’s new hairstyle is for a movie. Because I’m struggling to believe this was by choice.

The singer gives Drew Barrymore a run for her money in the race for ‘worst hair of the week’ award whilst wearing a stunning ivory Marchesa Resort 2010 one shoulder pleated crepe dress with embroidered waist.

Gold shoes would have complemented the gold embroidery detail on her dress better in my opinion.

Emmy Rossum shows us how low the plunge on the back of her feather detailed pink duchess satin sheath Marchesa dress goes.

Gold accessories complete her look.

Brian Reyes Spring 2010


Brian Reyes’ Spring 2010 collection will bring out the girlie girl in you.

Ultra feminine looks were presented which were light and airy, with chiffon ruffled blouses, aqua prints, and shorts.

I loved the light-weight denim pieces, especially the tulip skirt with slightly frayed edges.

The details were subtle with no over the top shoulders which we are now tired of. Just cute ruffles, fitted dress, t-shirt dresses and floaty blouses.

After the show I asked Brian what his inspiration was for this collection.

He said “Theory of evolution, muscle form skeleton form, passion, love, the heart, anything that has to do with emotion and everything that has to do with us”.

Brian said that he doesn’t have a muse as she has many different women in his life who he is inspired by.

He continued to say that he likes pure and simple things, which he tries to design in an architectural way.

“Prints are a very big thing for me and embroidery I love“.

My new BFF Becki Newton worked her Brian Reyes Fall 2009 print silk dress which features tiered ruffles on the skirt and a slash to the back.

Jimmy Choo Karina studded shoe-boots completed her look.

Becki is such a sweet-heart. I spoke to her briefly backstage, but I will bring that to you later.

Rachel Bilson – who is a good friend of Brian Reyes -opted for a golden dress from the Resort 2010.

Who Wore YSL Better? Becki Newton or Maribel Verdu

Becki Newton was the first to wear this green YSL pailette strapless harem dress, when she attended The Metropolitan Opera’s 125th Anniversary Gala.

She wore her dress with with silver YSL cage heels

Maribel Verdu was yet another Cannes re-run, as she wore the same harem dress, to premiere of her movie Tetro, with YSL criss cross satin heels.

Becki’s caged heels win this for me.

Net-A-Porter US have this on sale, in black for $2,610. Both come with a black velvet bow belt.

Becki’s YSL cage sandals can be purchased from Browns Fashion for £1,345/€1,506.83/$2,042.52.

Runway To “Paley Center for Media Ugly Betty Screening” – Becki Newton In Dolce & Gabbana


We all knew it would be hard for actresses to wear the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 pajama sets on the red carpet.

You may remember Jessica Alba getting it terribly wrong at the My Bloody Valentine 3D LA screening back in January.

Becki Newton, decided to give it a go at the preview of the Ugly Betty: The Rabbit Test episode, presented by the Paley Center for Media last night.

She opted for the cute Dolce & Gabbana pot print pajama shorts, which she wore with a Dolce & Gabbana bustier, a black tuxedo jacket, and black Christian Louboutin Etrier patent leather sandals, and it all works.

I really love what she did with this look, she broke up the runway look, and made it her own.

Definitely a Best Dressed Of The Week contender, for making what I thought was the impossible, possible.


You can get Becki’s looks including her:

Dolce & Gabbana bustier
Browns Fashion
£1,105/€1,232.16/$1,635.95

Who Wore Matthew Williamson Better? Joy Bryant or Becki Newton


Joy Bryant took a rare night off wearing Missoni, to wear this cute strapless dress, when she attended the Matthew Williamson New York store opening party during New York Fashion Week.

Joy teamed her dress with a cropped black cardigan, tights and black boots, whilst accessorizing with a black clutch, and a large statement necklace.

Ugly Betty actress Becki Newton opted for the same dress at the screening for I Love You, Man last month.

Silver bracelets, and matching silver strappy sandals completed the look.

Joy mutes the look with all the black accessories, so Becki wins for me.
