Balmain x H&M Collection Launch Party

Balmain x H&M Collection Launch Party 1

The Balmain x H&M collection made its global runway debut in front of a celebrity-packed audience in New York City on Tuesday (October 20).

Kendall Jenner, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Diane Kruger, Gigi Hadid, Ellie Goulding, Jourdan Dunn, Alexa Chung, Coco Rocha and Kylie Jenner were among the guests to get an exclusive look at collection designed by Olivier Rousteing.

As you would expect, many of Olivier’s classic pieces have been created for this high-street collection. While the celebs stuck to a black and green colour palette, many of the runway looks incorporated colour and embellishments.

As this collection doesn’t appeal, I will not be standing in line when it goes on sale November 5, but I do like Kendall, Rosie’s, Jourdan’s and Alexa’s sexy, yet powerful looks.

Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party

Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party

A crush of chic beauties and models of the moment made for quite the spectacular showing at the Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party on Friday (October 3) in Paris, France.

Giovanna Battaglia: Everything was coming up roses, in rather dramatic fashion, for Giovanna who left no petal unturned in this Alexander McQueen Fall 2015 red rose organza and lace ruffle dress worn with a lace bra and black lace embroidered boots. I kind of wish that lace collar piece was missing in action.

Kendall Jenner
: The model went the sophisticatedly chic route in an Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2015 Couture black velvet bustier gown constructed with a touch of youthful charm in the large collection of ruffle roses that dotted the hem of the dress. The finish of a ruby lip brought even more va-voom spirit.

Zoe Kravitz: Adding more rose-laced, flower-power to the proceedings, she rocked the Balenciaga Spring 2016 dress that she modeled during the label’s runway show paired with Balenciaga matching mules and complementary jewels. This is a more delicate side to Zoe’s style, but the full-on sheer story and high-waisted briefs has me fatigued on this occasion.

2015 amfAR New York Gala Red Carpet Roundup

2015 amfAR New York Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some of the other attendees at the 2015 amfAR New York Gala at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (February 11) in New York City.

Kendall Jenner: The model wore a striking red Romona Keveza Fall 2014 sleek asymmetrical gown styled with gold glitter Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ pumps and working a Gigi Hadid slicked-back do. You may remember that Rachel McAdams wore this same dress last year.

Toni Garrn: I love Toni but, as beautiful as she looks here, her love for Elie Saab lace gowns is starting to get repetitive. Here she opts for white following black and green offerings in the past. This look was styled with a Rauwolf clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti Design black suede sandal with golden leaf embellishments. If I had access to Elie Saab that’s all I would wear too, but I wish she would consider some of the other dresses on offer. A printed Elie Saab dress wouldn’t go amiss.

Iman: Shutting down the red carpet, the supermodel showed the youngsters how it’s done wearing a striped colourful look from Balmain’s Spring 2015 collection. Oozing natural style of the like the aforementioned could only dream about, this was one of my favourites of the bunch.

2014 amfAR Milano 2014 Red Carpet Roundup

2014 amfAR Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the rest of the looks from the 2014 amfAR Gala held during Milan Fashion Week on Saturday (September 20).

Alessandra Ambrosio: Like Heidi Klum, Alessandra wore Versace, adding yet more va-va-voom to this red carpet. The sexy black beaded gown with a thigh-high slit was styled with an Elena Ghisellini clutch. You may remember that Freida Pinto wore this same gown back in 2012.

Coco Rocha: As always, everything comes to a grinding halt when Coco Rocha takes to the red carpet. Working a bold-shouldered Versace look, the model sashayed down the red carpet like the seasoned pro she is.

Coco Rocha In Zac Posen – 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards

Coco Rocha In Zac Posen - 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards

Coco Rocha attended the 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 16) in New York City.

No one does red carpet drama quite like Coco Rocha and Zac Posen.

The designer’s stunning muse would’ve had jaws dropping adoring this Spring 2014 blush off-the-shoulder organza creation.

I love how the dramatic bodice overlay adds a twist to this romantic gown.

Crafted in soft, ethereal silk chiffon, the slim silhouette cascades into a graceful mermaid hem with a short train.

Opting for a slick back hairstyle, the model added an edge to her look, working smouldering smoky eyes and a rouge pout, with statement earrings completing her look.
