Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Versace opened a new boutique in Soho, New York, yesterday evening and Donatella Versace invited along her favourite celebs and supermodels to celebrate the occasion.

Jennifer Hudson: The singer was my favourite at this event. She wore a chic black flared leather skirt with cross details from the Versace Fall 2012 collection paired with a black turtleneck with Swarovski crystals. What I love most about this look is the orange coat with chainmail inserts and that gorgeous smile. A simple side-parted bun and black knee-high Versace boots from the Fall 2012 collection completed her look.

Alexa Chung: I never had Alexa down as a Versace girl, so I’m not surprised that she opted for the more youthful and edgier Versus collection. I love burgundy, so I’m mildly obsessed with her burgundy knit turtleneck top paired with a matching leather mini skirt from the Versus Fall 2012 collection. You’ll be surprised to learn I have no complaints about this look. No, not even her hair.

Princess Charlene of Monaco: The modern princess opted for a sexy, simple, yet chic look donning a Versace cashmere coat with leather inserts, paired with over-the-knee leather Versace gold toe-cap boots. The only pop of colour came via her red lips. Read more…

Bergdorf Goodman celebrated its 111th anniversary at the Plaza Hotel in New York City last night, inviting its favourite supermodels.

Coco Rocha: The model gave us her fiercest pose donning a blood-red Zac Posen strapless mermaid gown with a ruffled front from the designer’s Resort 2013 collection. Giving the look the old Hollywood vibe it commands, the model styled her hair into a side-swept bun and red hot lips, adding a gold clutch and silver earrings to complete the look.

Karolina Kurkova: Going in the totally opposite direction, Karolina wore a Roberto Cavalli Resort 2013 menswear-inspired look with an exquisite blue-and-white trumeau print paired with silver Christian Louboutin pumps. Between the kohl-rimmed eyes, the pose, the attitude and her slicked-back hair, she nailed this look.

Erin Heatherton: The model looked stunning wearing a Jason Wu Spring 2013 dress. She looked breathtaking wearing a navy halter dress with an embellished bodice and a sheer skirt. A black leather harness belt and Jason Wu accessories including a gold clutch and Jason Wu ‘Nadja’ pearl-accented ankle-strap sandals, as recently worn by Cody Horn, completed her look.

Coco Rocha was in Jersey City on Saturday afternoon for the 5th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic.

The model, who just wrapped a photo shoot with Bernard Hunt for the Dennis Basso Fall 2012 ad campaign, wore a summery dress by the designer.

Her Dennis Basso Spring 2012 nude dress with a (deflated) petal skirt is decorated with silver embellishments on the bodice.

Once again, the supermodel lets herself down with some questionable footwear.

Whilst appropriate for treading the divots at half-time, these caramel pumps don’t work with her nude dress.

I’m also not a fan of the dark lip, even if it is this summer’s hottest beauty trend right now.

Coco Rocha opted out of wearing a gown for the 2012 Met Gala taking place tonight in New York City.

On any given Monday, I would be going crazy for this vintage yellow Givenchy embellished jumpsuit with a pink bustier top, as it’s such a refreshing red carpet look, but I’m not getting that ‘wow’ moment from Coco that I’m so used to feeling.

It doesn’t help that she matched her ombre tips to the look.

Coco styled her look with Sergio Rossi satin platform pumps and a gold Kotur clutch.

Coco fierce or Coco the clown?

Here are the rest of the looks from the Series Launch Celebration of ‘The Conversation’ held at the DVF Studio in New York City yesterday which was also attended by Diane Kruger and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Giovanna Battaglia: The contributing fashion editor to W magazine wore a black Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2012 black long-sleeve dress decorated with silver fringed embellishments. Her dress was teamed with Prada embellished patent-leather slingback wedge sandals with a pop of colour courtesy of her green Edie Parker clutch.

Malin Akerman: Usually the actress can do no wrong in my book, but I wish she’d been more adventurous with her shoe choice like Giovanna when selecting heels for her gold metallic mini dress.

Coco Rocha: The model works this high-neck long-sleeve dress with a fierce supermodel pose. She accessorized with black patent peep-toes and an aqua Diane von Furstenberg ‘Lytton’ python-effect leather box clutch.

Rashida Jones: The actress has me crying out for colour. She selected an all-black look which consisted of a chiffon sleeveless blouse, a textured shorts and black booties. Not wearing colour or prints to a DVF event; isn’t there some kinda law against that?
