Dennis Basso Madison Avenue Store Opening

Dennis Basso Madison Avenue Store Opening

Stars gathered to celebrate the new Dennis Basso store on Madison Avenue in New York City yesterday evening. With the temperatures dipping outside, the designer couldn’t have picked a better moment to showcase his furs.

Debra Messing: The actress looks very content in her green mink coat, which she wore over a grey embellished cocktail dress which featured an on-trend sheer hem.

Brooke Shields: Sporting wavy locks, the actress opted to wear one of the designer’s embellished LBDs, which also featured a sheer hemline. Simple black pumps and silver jewels completed her look.

Olivia Palermo: While everyone else opted for a glam embellished frock, Olivia – as usual – marched to the beat of her own drum, wearing jeans and a black top, to which she added a Dennis Basso mink coat. Some of you haven’t been too enamoured with her red carpet choices lately, so how does this one fare?

Citymeals-on-Wheels 27th Annual ‘Power Lunch for Women’

Citymeals-on-Wheels 27th Annual Power Lunch for Women

On Friday, Citymeals-On-Wheels hosted its 27th annual Power Lunch for Women at The Plaza Hotel in New York City — and as is to be expected, the stars in attendance dressed the part of “ladies who lunch.”

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host chose a nude-coloured Roland Mouret sheath with a simple black bow-tie sash at the waist. While cut at the knee, her cap-sleeved number showed off ample cleavage via a low boxed-out neckline — it’s certainly a sexier daytime silhouette, but one that she pulled off without a hitch. A gold pendant necklace and embellished pumps completed the look.

Brooke Shields: Just two days after Victoria Beckham wore her own tri-colour Fall 2013 dress, Brooke Shields stepped out in the same exact frock across the pond, styling it with black pumps, a textured black clutch, and gold cuff. While I love the bright pattern, this dress wasn’t the most flattering choice.

Debra Messing: The actress stepped out in a long-sleeved black dress with silver-band details at the waist and bodice. Her futuristic fashion statement — or attempt at one — was accessorized with large earrings, black clutch, black heels, and a silver smokey eye.

Knee-length hems aside, these looks ran the gamut. Have a favourite, or is this power lunch a fashion miss?

Metropolitan Opera Season Opening Production Of ‘Eugene Onegin’ Red Carpet Roundup

Metropolitan Opera Season Opening Production Of ‘Eugene Onegin’ Red Carpet Roundup

While the 2013 Emmy Award trophies were trending in Los Angeles, California, a host of stars came out to walk another red carpet across the States in New York City for The Metropolitan Opera’s season opening production of ‘Eugene Onegin’ on Sunday.

Coco Rocha: The model was appropriately striking and statuesque, as she strutted out a Greta Constantine midnight-blue gown. The architectural silhouette, intricate folded detailing, mock peplum waist and shoulder cutouts all had me at hello. An exaggerated, winged cat eye and bright coral pout brought even more drama.

Mischa Barton: Putting a sophisticated foot forward, the actress wore a Valentina Kova robe dress, punched through with a bold, cerulean blue waistband. A thigh-high slit showed off her black Walter Steiger pumps, which couldn’t help but be outdone by that over-the-top feather clutch. She opted for the no-makeup look, but a bold lip may have been beneficial here.

Patricia Clarkson: The flame-haired actress sparkled in a Philosophy Fall 2013 black gown, accented with an appropriate plunge neckline and a shower of glittering embellishment at the waist.

Brooke Shields In Angel Sanchez – 2012 Alzheimer’s Association Rita Hayworth Gala

Brooke Shields took to the red carpet last night for the 2012 Alzheimer’s Association Rita Hayworth Gala, held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.

She looked stunning wearing an Angel Sanchez Spring 2012 gown. Frankly we don’t see enough of this designer on the red carpet.

I love the lilac and yellow which makes up this beautiful embroidered silk crepe gown with a chiffon cape and open back.

The bright yellow clutch may seem obvious, but it works perfectly with this look.

A wavy updo provided the finishing touches.

Her Grecian white satin gown with embellishments on the shoulder and waist was styled with white peep-toes, a white clutch and a wavy updo.

Brooke is always radiant on the red carpet.

Roberto Cavalli Cannes Store Opening Parties

Roberto ‘I Am The Party’ Cavalli opened his first boutique at 67 Boulevard de La Croisette during Cannes Film Festival yesterday, and he threw a lavish cocktail party on the beach followed by a dinner party on his yacht to celebrate.

For the cocktail party the celebs opted to wear cocktail dresses.

Bar Refaeli and Rosario Dawson opted for sexy embellished Cavalli minis with nude pumps, whilst Elisabetta Canalis wore an asymmetrical Cavalli LBD with a sheer embellished top.

For the boat party the stars opted for long flowing gowns.

Brooke Shields wore a black Cavalli gown with a vibrant floral print which has been worn before by Solange Knowles.

IFP’s 19th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards

I always think of Proenza Schouler as an edgy label, and Natalie Portman as a sweet delicate flower so the two together shouldn’t work, but she looked stunning in this ombre sequined Spring 2010 Proenza Schouler tank dress.

I said in an earlier post that ’tis the season to wear sequins and sparkle which Natalie certainly does here.

Her hair was pulled back as she wore black peep-toes and carrying a cute Judith Leiber Discoball sphere clutch to complete her look.

Brooke Shields wore a Malandrino Fall 2009 off-the-shoulder ivory dress with a bird embroidery detail going down one side, plus a tulle overlay.

I love the dress on the runway, but it looks really loose on Brooke and as a result the dress appears to be creased even though I’m sure it isn’t.

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection has by far been the most popular collection worn by celebrities this year.

It was only a matter of time before someone ruined the good feeling.

I expected it to be Heidi Montag, but American comic Kristen Wiig opted for the shorter version as worn by Rachel McAdams.

The problem isn’t the dress, the problem are the red tights and the way it makes me think that Kristen is channeling her inner elf.

As cute as Rosie Perez’ dress is, the first person that came to mind when I saw this dress was Taylor Swift because she has worn a very similar dress recently.

Plus Rosie’s dress feels more suited to someone of Taylor age group.
