19th Annual Art Walk NY

19th Annual Art Walk NY

It was very much a Dolce fest at the 19th Annual Art Walk NY held at 82 Mercer in New York City on Tuesday evening.

Coco Rocha: The model kept it simple yet striking in black wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 black jacquard dress with a lace yoke and sleeve. It’s a shame the shoes are so bland, but she makes up for it with that bright orange lip.

Elettra Wiedemann: Opting for a significantly more captivating Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 frock inspired by the Byzantine mosaics of Sicily’s Monreale Cathedral which sparkle with crystal, sequin and bead detailing, this heavyweight probably didn’t need much accessorising so she added a Rauwolf red clutch and Dolce & Gabbana crucifix earrings.

Hilary Rhoda: By far my favourite from this bunch, I have been obsessed by this ruby crystal-embellished dress for a long while, not only by the colour and bedazzlement, but also the excellent craftsmanship. Simple styling was most definitely the right road to take this exquisite piece down.

Ralph Lauren’s Screening Of Hitchcock’s ‘To Catch A Thief’ Celebrating The Princess Grace Foundation

Ralph Lauren's Screening Of Hitchcock's 'To Catch A Thief' Celebrating The Princess Grace Foundation

Last night, Ralph Lauren hosted a special screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘To Catch A Thief’ at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The event, which was held to celebrate The Princess Grace Foundation, drew a crowd peppered with actresses, models, and one royal daughter-in-law.

Princess Charlene of Monaco: There to represent the Monegasque royal family, Princess Charlene of Monaco stunned in a strapless white jumpsuit by Ralph Lauren. While the structured bodice, skinny waist belt, and wide-leg silhouette gave off a distinct ’70s vibe, her minimalist take elsewhere (accessories, makeup, and slicked-back hair) kept the whole look decidedly polished.

Toni Collette: The Australian actress covered up in a black Ralph Lauren turtleneck dress, which also featured long sleeves and a below-the-knee hemline. Perhaps, to offset the conservative dress choice, she wore black cutout booties and styled it all with a gold, textured Louis Vuitton ‘Limelight’ clutch and mussed-up waves.

Coco Rocha: The model — who also donned Ralph Lauren for the evening’s festivities — went with an outfit straight from the designer’s Fall 2013 runway. The look included a white Victorian ruffle-front and puffed-sleeve blouse, high-waisted black sailor pants, and black pumps.

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.

Longchamp Flagship Store Opening

Longchamp Flagship Store Opening 14 Sept

Longchamp celebrated the opening of its London flagship store on Regent Street on Saturday evening, inviting a host of celebrity guests.

I was lucky enough to be invited and mingled with a host of celebrity guests across the three floors while being thoroughly entertained by Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof, who were spinning the decks (see my pictures below).

Zoe Saldana: The beautiful actress, who is currently in London filming her next blockbuster ‘Guardian of the Galaxy’, looked effortless wearing a draped-front ivory silk blouse and shorts from Longchamp’s Spring 2014 collection, which she styled with a ‘Roseau Box’ clutch and taupe Louboutins. She was such a delight, happily posing for a picture for us.

Kate Moss: The model, who has a very strong connection with Longchamp having designed bags for the brand, was the one person who everyone wanted to see close up. She didn’t disappoint, wearing a sexy black keyhole romper with a unique whiplash leather belt, which she accessorized with a blue Kate Moss for Longchamp clutch for a pop of colour.

Alexa Chung: The DJ was in great spirits on the night, opting for a black vinyl Jonathan Saunders ‘Jemima’ bustier dress from the Fall 2013 collection to showcase her darker and sexier side, which she styled with a cute pair of houndstooth ankle-strap pumps. The ivory cardi was just for the red carpet.

Coco Rocha In Fausto Puglisi – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Coco Rocha In Fausto Puglisi - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Mega model Coco Rocha worked the runway, ahem red carpet, at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The catwalker could have been a rock star, as she struck a pose in a Fausto Puglisi black leather embossed jacket that was embellished with all sorts of bells and whistles—from studs and shine to zippers galore.

With such an intense piece, she kept the rest of her look minimal with skinny black pants, black pointy pumps and nary an accessory in sight save for a few rings.

Aside from the jacket, the other star of this style show was Coco’s new auburn pixie-punk ’do, which she coaxed into a pompadour style, ratcheting up the rocker vibe even more. A brush of grey smoky shadow completed her steely, sultry stare.

Rock on.
