Chloe Sevigny In Proenza Schouler – 2013 Met Gala

Chloe Sevigny In Proenza Schouler - 2013 Met Gala

The one person who I thought would’ve nailed the punk theme for Monday night’s 2013 Met Gala was Chloe Sevigny.

She proved me wrong.

The style maven, who’s known to take a fashion risk or two (didn’t she once have a punk phase?), opted for a long-sleeved Proenza Schouler Fall 2013 gown.

While this is a great look, it feels so wrong for the occasion and let’s face it, it’s a lazy effort.

The most punk rock thing about this look is the slashed detail.

And I’m over the Met Gala turban; been there and preferred that when Kate Moss and Karolina Kurkova rocked it.

Dolce & Gabbana’s 5th Avenue Boutique Opening

Dolce & Gabbana's 5th Avenue Boutique Opening

The Dolce & Gabbana 5th Avenue Boutique Opening took place on Saturday evening in New York City, where Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana enjoyed a night of traditional Italian hospitality and mingled around the space of the new store, which spans three floors.

Giovanna Battaglia: The fashion editor stood out wearing a stunning red satin fit-and-flare dress with a lace overlay, which she styled with red embellished shoes. She was by far my favourite of the night. I love how she captures the essence of a brand without the theatrics.

Paloma Faith: Speaking of theatrics, the British singer went all out in a full Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 look, with the only solid piece of her look being her belt. I do love the fact that she’s not afraid of colour, prints and standing out in a room of black lace dresses. This Dolce & Gabbana look featuring a ‘Trio’ of Knight’ dress might not go down too well, but I love her boldness. You may remember that Zhang Zilin wore this same dress earlier this year.

Bianca Brandolini D’Adda: We usually associate Dolce & Gabbana with black lace dresses, but Giovanna and Bianca embraced red lace on this occasion. The socialite donned a bell-sleeved mini dress with a black overlay, styling her look with a black Dolce & Gabbana ponyskin clutch and red embellished sandals.

Coach 3rd Annual Evening Of Cocktails And Shopping To Benefit The Children’s Defense Fund

Coach Event 1

A bright crop of starlets turned out for the third annual Coach cocktail party and shopping event to benefit the Children’s Defense Fund, hosted by ‘Star Trek’ movie producer-director J.J. Abrams on the rooftop of his Bad Robot production company in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday. Coach clutches, handbags and totes proved to be the night’s hottest accessory, as many PYTs no doubt plucked up a new purse for their collections.

Chloe Sevigny: Always one to keep us guessing, the actress went for a rather girly approach in this printed Balenciaga dress that immediately had me wanting to fix that lopsided black bow at the waist. I also couldn’t get past the white tongue flap on those Balenciaga peep-toe shoes—or their mauve-purple colour that clashed with her coral-pink Coach clutch. An orange lippie proved another dissonant tone, although it matched the logo behind her.

Abigail Spencer: Donning a creamy DKNY Spring 2013 dress, the actress was chic and polished. She prevented sartorial boredom with a fuchsia handbag and melon-hued ankle-strap sandals. Loose waves and a glowing complexion finished off this breezy look.

Kate Mara: The ‘House of Cards’ star mixed masculine and feminine, showing a flash of skin in a Vena Cava sheer crop top with ruffled sleeve paired with black Parker peg pants and Brian Atwood’s ‘Wagner’ peep-toe heels. A Dannijo necklace was well-placed and added just the right amount of sparkle.

Chloe Sevigny In Chloé - Chloé's 60th Anniversary Celebration

Chloe Sevigny was at the Barneys New York Madison Avenue store in New York City last night, to help Chloé celebrate their 60th anniversary.

To mark the anniversary, the house is reissuing 16 iconic archive pieces, including the Violin dress the actress wore, which was designed by Karl Lagerfeld for the spring/summer 1983 collection which the actress wore.

The iconic black dress with cut-outs at the waist and a gold- beaded violin motif was styled with tri-colour Chloée sandals and a black python clutch.

On Chloe’s last few outings you haven’t warmed to her, but on this occasion wouldn’t you agree that she looks polished?

A side- parted new cropped ‘do and a fuchsia- pink lip shade completed her look.

The dress retails at $3,695 asnd is only available at

Chloe Sevigny In Proenza Schouler – amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week

Chloe Sevigny In Proenza Schouler - amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week

For a while, the allure of Chloe Sevigny was starting to wane, but she was back to her best on the red carpet for the amfAR New York Gala to kick off Fall 2013 Fashion Week held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City yesterday evening.

Gone is the slight dishevelled appearance in favour of a more polished look, whilst still maintaining her downtown-girl edge wearing a Proenza Schouler Spring 2013 frock.

Her printed black-and-white dress with a side slit was of course styled with some sturdy Proenza Schouler booties and a simple black fold-over clutch.

Chloe Sevigny In Valentino – ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ LA Screening

Joining in on the fright night fun, Chloe Sevigny took to the red carpet at the Paramount Theatre for the LA screening of ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ on Saturday evening.

The actress, known for taking the edgy route on the red carpet, wore a part-sexy, part-sweet Valentino Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

The sexy part is the black lace with the sweet courtesy of the puffy white sleeve.

It’s a Jekyll & Hyde dress to say the very least, but Chloe adds a touch of je ne sais quoi to make it surprisingly work.

Slicking her hair back and keeping accessories to a minimum could’ve been the key.

An orange lip colour completed her look.

Love or loathe?
