‘Ballo in Maschera’ to Celebrate Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda

Anna Dello Russo

Leave it to drama kings Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana to top off the recent haute couture shows with an elaborate flourish. The design duo orchestrated ‘Ballo in Maschera,’ an extravagant Venetian masquerade ball held in the halls of the historic Palazzo Pisani Moretta along the Grand Canal last Saturday. A collection of brilliantly costumed guests, each having received a mask created by the designers, arrived by gondola or boat to celebrate the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Fall Winter 2013/14 presented in Venice, Italy.

Anna Dello Russo: ‘Understated’ is not in this ‘Vogue’ Japan editor’s vocabulary, so it’s only natural that she put the costume in this costume party with a spirited ship fascinator atop her expansive wig. Flaunting a period costume with layers and layers of ruffles and piles of frou, ADR was definitely the fashion queen of the evening.

The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

Aside from Naomi Campbell and Sarah Jessica Parker, a host of stars did wear L’Wren Scott frocks to the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party, which the designer hosted in Hyde Park, London yesterday evening.

Princess Beatrice: The princess looked chic wearing a L’Wren Scott blue lace dress with a scoop neckline, scalloped hem and interesting pleats at the cuffs. Her dazzling accessories included a blue embellished clutch and crystallized pumps.

Joanne Froggatt: The ‘Downton Abbey’ star is known for her love of colour, but on this rare occasion she selected a black L’Wren Scott frock. The embroidered mini was styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Lagoula’ sandals and a studded Christian Louboutin ‘Paris’ bag to prevent this look from being too forgettable.

Alice Eve: Now this is more like it. Alice clearly read her invite for this summer party. The actress wore a L’Wren Scott Spring 2013 white-and-gold sequin frock, styled with gold pumps and a cream oversized clutch with a gold bow accent.

Michael Kors Dinner Hosted By Vogue

Michael Kors Dinner 1

There were many more stars who joined Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for the Michael Kors dinner hosted by Vogue in London yesterday evening.

Samantha Barks: The British actress strikes a pose wearing a sexy black bodysuit with an open back with black leggings from Michael Kors’ Pre-Fall 2013 collection, which she accented with a black leather corset-like belt. The smouldering brunette beauty completed her look with a black ‘Gia’ clutch and ‘Barbara’ heels from the Fall 2013 collection.

Daisy Lowe: The beautiful British model channelled her inner screen siren, wearing a Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2013 black lace dress with a full skirt. It’s the styling which gives the look a classic retro feel.

Yasmin Le Bon: The supermodel was just one of the attendees wearing stripes from Michael Kors Spring 2013 collection. Her midnight-blue-and-green striped shell-and-sequin pleat skirt, which was styled with green strappy sandals, was recently worn by Hilary Rhoda at the New York dinner party.

Front Row @ Topshop Unique Fall 2013

Topshop Fall 2013 Front Row

The Topshop Unique Fall 2013 show took place in London yesterday afternoon and they invited their favourite celebs to take in the new collection.

Kate Bosworth: Decked out head-to-toe in Topshop, the actress wore a fluffy grey Topshop Unique sweater which she styled with a darker grey sequinned Unique mini skirt. Opting to keep her look monotone, she accessorized with a black Topshop clutch and simple black pumps. Neutral makeup and a top-knot provided the finishing touches. Did this look need some colour to lift it? Or are you happy with this look as it is?

Olivia Palermo: As you would expect from Olivia, she wore a mixture of brands for her front-row look. A cosy Tibi fur jacket, worn over her layered Topshop sheer blouse and white sequinned Tibi top, was accented with a white leather belt. I love the print on the Topshop cropped pants, which livened up the look, as did her Whistles yellow python clutch. Monika Chang black ankle-strap pumps with a white heel accessorized her look. Olivia’s longer wavy tresses perfectly framed her face, with kohl-rimmed eyes, pink lips and a red manicure completing her look beauty-wise.

Pixie Geldof: The star wore a blue-and-white floral-print Topshop Boutique dress. I’m not at all surprised to see her carrying her animal-print Dolce & Gabbana clutch, because she rarely hits the red carpet without one piece of her look consisting of a Dolce piece. Masculine patent leather loafers, gold jewels and a two-tone manicure completed her look.

Daisy Lowe In Dolce & Gabbana – 2013 Elle Style Awards

Daisy Lowe In Dolce & Gabbana Elle Style Awards

Daisy Lowe took to the red carpet this evening at the 2013 Elle Style Awards hosted at the Savoy Hotel in London.

The model took a sweet turn at the award ceremony in a Dolce & Gabbana strapless ‘Sera’ dress with black Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps.

The sweetheart neckline, feminine floral pattern, and playful ’50s style silhouette looked fun and party-ready.

I especially love how she toned down the sweetness of the look with an edgy and on-trend messy fishtail braid and a deep red lip.

You may remember that the master in sweet styles, Amy Adams, also walked the red carpet in this same look.
