Runway To “Supima Design Competition” – Coco Rocha In Victor de Souza

Due to many people *coughs*Tyra Banks*coughs* over using the word fierce, it’s lost its true meaning.

Coco Rocha is fierce is the true sense of the word.

It oozing from her every pore, especially in this Victor de Souza Spring 2010 ensemble which she wore to the “3rd Annual Supima Design Competition” this week.

Victor de Souza’s Spring 2010 collection consisted of sophisticated pieces with a futuristic edge.

This we can see from Coco’s peaked blazer and plastic corseted belt.

Not many could pull this look off, but Coco does with ease.

The belt kind of reminds me of the ones presented in Christian Dior Fall 2008 Couture collection don’t you think?

Coco is launching her own fashion line for Spring 2011.  I can’t wait to see what it consists of.

I can’t see her doing the girlie floral thing, and Erin Wasson’s done the grungy thing, so where does that leave Coco?

Dior Beauty Celebrates the 10th Anniversary of J’adore

Coco Rocha doesn’t quite ooze that fierceness that she used to, but she still looks gorgeous wearing a black and red floral print strapless Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2009 dress.

Maybe the reason I’m not crazy about this look is because I’ve seen it so many times before.

Also those Christian Louboutin ankle boots still remind me of a horses head every time I look at them.

Lydia Hearst was the model used to present the Marc Bouwer Spring 2010 collection, and I guess she loved the collection so much that she wore a red sequined mini dress with structured shoulders to this event.

Her dress is paired with silver Christian Louboutin Differa sandals and a black clutch.

If you thought Bally only did shoes and handbags, then you were mistaken as Joy Bryant wore Bally Fall 2009 feather print silk maxi dress with an asymmetrical sleeve to this event.

I love the dress, but those clunky brown boots are just horrific.

Many of you complain about Ginnifer Goodwin and Victoria Beckham never smiling, but you should add Lake Bell to that list too.

Not only is she not smiling here, but she looks quite peeved.

A nice smile would have warmed up this cute look, as I love her jacquard dress with a peplum at the waist.

Tinsley Mortimer looks like a real-life Barbie wearing a gold strapless Dior dress, paired with gold t-bar heels and a Jimmy Choo animal print clutch.

Olivia Palmero has said in the past that she’s a Topshop addict.

Well she doesn’t to disprove that fact by wearing a Topshop studded jacket paired with a metallic dress and blue suede ankle boots.

Like Olivia, Nicky Hilton opted for a very casual look for this event.

Keeping the studded theme going she wore a studded vest, paired with a white tank, black mini skirt and Brian Atwood Lola pumps.

69th Annual American Ballet Theatre Spring Gala

You may think that all the glamour headed to Cannes this week, well Iman & co., are proving that there is still a lot left in New York.

The supermodel is a veteran on the red carpet, so she knew that her emerald embroidered asymmetrical Oscar de la Renta Resort 2009 gown stands alone.

Minimalism is key with a statement dress like this one, so she wisely kept accessories to just a ring, and a clutch.

Ivanka Trump was the first of many to opt for a Carolina Herrera gown at this gala.

Her lapis blue metallic strapless gown, was from the recent Fall 2009 collection.

I would have loved to have seen her carry a pewter clutch, the black does nothing for me. The same applies to that large necklace.

Lindsay Price didn’t pick a show stopping piece like the previous two, but it needn’t have been, because her textured silk Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 teal gown, with a marigold bow detail, and cascading ruffles is so charming.

Her Lipstick Jungle co-star Kim Raver, did pick a show-stopping piece. Well it was show-stopping on the runway. On Kim, not so much.

This lapis blue and lavender gown, got lost in translation.

Her hair, make-up, and yellow gold cuff, all don’t work for me either.

Lynda Carter ages so gracefully. She was my heroine as Wonder Woman, and she still looks wonderful today wearing a Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 gown, with a fur shrug.

The lurex black and white rose print gown is accented with black organza ruffles.

Hilary Rhoda’s ivory Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 ruffled gown, had embroidered details on the waist and straps.

Belen Rueda wore it with a lot more conviction at the 2009 Goya Awards. On Hilary it’s just meh.

Since no one else is speaking up, I will say it. Coco Rocha you need to ditch the red hair. It’s starting to look very Ronald McDonald. Please return to your darker locks immediately.

Her teal off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 layered gown is exquisite, but I preferred it on the runway. Coco looks better wearing edgier pieces.

Veronica Webb’s Rachel Roy Fall 2009 champagne silk gown, just melts against her caramel skin.

I really like the asymmetrical neckline, which is balanced against the asymmetrical chiffon hemline.

We don’t need a look book to know that Rene Zellweger is wearing Carolina Herrera. Past experience, and that smoke jacquard material from the Fall 2009 collection is evidence enough.

I love the gown especially the dramatic skirt, but the posing is very editorial.

Eva La Rue is working this season’s nude trend to maximum effect.

Claire Danes opted for a Christian Louboutin silver sandals, with her silk Stella McCartney navy dress.

The swirling nature of the dress is interesting, but Claire fails to breath any life into it.

Deborah Roberts is so utterly captivating in this pink asymmetrical gown, I had to feature her.

The ruffled neckline might be a bit heavy, for some, but it’s an outstanding gown, which is event appropriate.

Mariska Hargitay’s teal and navy banded gown, looks a bit snug on her. This type of material can be unforgiving.

Kelly Ripa really lets me down here. She’s usually so colourful and vibrant. On this occasion she is so muted.

Not like her at all.

Models @ The 2009 Costume Institute Gala

After Gwyneth Paltrow wore the gold version of this Versace Spring 2009 dress, plus it’s appeared on many magazine covers, Gisele Bündchen gave us something a little different with a navy blue spaghetti strapped version of this mini dress.

Not a jaw-dropping moment like last year, but you can always rely on her to look fabulous.

Daria Werbowy walked the runway the Balmain Fall 2009 show so she would have pre-selection what she wanted to wear to the event weeks ago. She opted for this black sequined plunging dress from the same collection, with black booties.

Anja Rubik also walked for Balmain, and it looks like she had her eye on this strapless silver piece, with a black asymmetrical hem from the Fall 2009 collection.

Still sporting her Auburn locks, Coco Rocha wore a gold asymmetrical Isaac Mizrahi Fall 2009 gown.

Donatella Versace had a busy night dressing yet another star in her Atelier Versace Spring 2009 collection. Claudia Schiffer opted for a black strapless gown, with many sheer panels.

We have been crying out for a new hairstyle for weeks, and Claudia gave us bangs to keep us quite.

Miranda Kerr wore a very revealing fringed Jil Sander Spring 2009 dress.

Iman supreme elegance as always in Donna Karan.

Karen Elson’s Gothic look is perfect for this Chanel Fall 2009 off the shoulder gown, with a white pleated collar.

The look of the Rodarte Fall 2009 collection included thigh high boots, but Jessica Stam opted for slingbacks with her Rodarte one-shouldered mini dress.

Despite the vivid yellow, I’m missing the wow factor I usually get from Amber Valletta at these types of events.

Helena Christensen’s pink Zac Posen custom Vogue gown is cute, but I would’ve preferred to see it on someone like Chanel Iman.

Hilary Rhoda wore a Thakoon Fall 2009 mini asymmetrical mini dress, with a pouffy piece on her shoulder. I much preferred this dress in black, as it was presented on the runway, but Hilary does look great in it.

As I said above I would have preferred that Helena and Chanel Iman has swapped dresses. Last night Chanel wore a pink Zac Posen Spring 2009 animal print gown.

Shalom Harlow is quite a mysterious character, and she isn’t giving much away in this vintage Bob Mackie black puffy coat dress.

Sessilee Lopez sparkled in a Zac Posen gown, as did Arlenis Sosa in Alberta Ferretti.

Isabeli Fontana pulled on a chartreuse mini for Calvin Klein, with matching pumps.

Alex Wek stood out in purple Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2009 mini dress, but she is so natural beautiful make-up weakens her look.

Narciso Rodriguez dressed Lily Donaldson in a black rise & fall gown.

Rachel Roy- in her own design – dressed both Lakshmi Menon and Joy Bryant. As much as I love them both Joy totally rocks my world in this dress.

Eva Herzigova wore a strapless nude Dolce & Gabbana dress, with Giuseppe Zanotti Special Edition crystal strap sandals.

Lara Stone rocks in her silver Alexander Wang dress.

6th Annual New Yorkers For Children Spring Dinner Dance


Diane Kruger was the Best Dressed at this event wearing a Marchesa Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

She’s beautiful, but the dress is exquisite. I love the feathered flower details cascading down the shoulder, and on the skirt of this lilac tulle draped dress.

I love how her hair is pulled back, so we get to see the stunning details on her dress.

The actress completes her look with Fendi bow-front peep-toes, and an Alexander McQueen box clutch.

This is the first Runway to Red Carpet I’ve done using my own runway picture. I took the picture of the model when I attended the Marchesa Fall 2009 presentation back in February during New York Fashion Week.


There was a time when Emmy Rossum was forever the prom-queen, but this delicate baby blue Christian Dior Resort 2009 gown is simply perfect for the occasion.

The breath-taking tiered gown, with an embellished waist band is so ethereal, so dreamy, and so magical.

Again I’m loving the hair pulled back with a single braid, and the icy accessories compliment the gown so well.


I don’t know what I am lusting over more. Joy Bryant’s Zac Posen Fall 2009 floaty floral dress, or her metallic ankle strap heels from the same collection.

Does this woman ever have a day off looking fabulous? This is just so easy for her, and she’s still not wearing any make-up on the red carpet.


Spanish supermodel Eugenia Silva sparkled in her golden sequined Giorgio Armani Spring 2009 gown.

When you are this beautiful, you don’t need many accessories, just a gorgeous dress, and a megawatt smile.


The only watchable thing about The City is Olivia Palermo, and her bitchy evil ways. What I can’t bare to look at, is her in this Zac Posen gown.

Talk about unflattering. There are so many dresses that would have worked from the Zac Posen Spring 2009 collection, but she picked a dress which makes her look like a kid playing dress up in mummy’s clothes.


Socialite Poppy Delevigne wore a taupe flapper style Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 dress, which has also been worn by Shenae Grimes and Mischa Barton.

Poppy’s version is modified from the runway, with a plunging-neckline making it much sexier.

Her look was completed with a leather biker jacket, and a pair of lavender Jimmy Choo satin diamante platform sandals.


Rachel Roy looks chic in a coral long-sleeved dress, which of course is her own design.

I just love how those turquoise earrings pop.


OK, the red hair was cute at first, but I am wishing Coco Rocha’s would return to her dark roots. I really dislike the disheveled way she is styled here.

I’m equally not enthused about her black and white geometric print Zac Posen Spring 2009 dress. It’s not an easy dress to pull off, and I think Coco fails terribly.


I’m not against fur like the stole Drew Barrymore wore yesterday, but when it looks like an animals tail, like Maggie Rizer’s, it gives me the creeps.

What I don’t understand is why the stole in the first instance? It’s wrapped around Maggie in the place where the most detail of this Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2008 gown is.


Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos looked delightful in this one-shouldered lavender print Emanuel Ungaro Resort 2009 gown.
