Here is a roundup of the models who took to the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday night.
Cara Delevingne: Wearing Burberry, the British model nailed the theme, working a studded navy column dress with a plunging neckline. Her part-braided ‘do and studded clutch perfected her look. She was easily one of the best on the night.
Gisele Bundchen: The model wore an Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013 black mini dress with revealing grommet detailing. You slammed Gwyneth for wearing a gown with sheer sides; does Gisele get a pass?
Karlie Kloss: I never thought I would say this about Karlie: she looks frumpy. Ever since she chopped off her locks she has lost her mojo. This Louis Vuitton granny-chic look ages her about 40 years. Betty White would look better in this frock.
Michael Kors hosted a dinner in honour of Halle Berry as she joins the designer and the United Nations World Food Programme to help fight world hunger; the dinner was held at the Pool Room at the Four Seasons on Saturday in New York City.
Halle Berry: As the guest of honour, Halle stuck to her tried and tested LBD, plunging-neckline formula, wearing a paillette-strap sheath dress from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection. Black ‘Mikaela’ Spring 2013 sandals and the Michael Kors ‘Hunger Stop’ campaign watch, which I’m sure will be a best seller, completed her look.
Solange Knowles: The singer delights, wearing the turquoise-and-optic-white cloud-print skinny pants I have been crushing on since they took to the runway last September during the Spring 2013 collection. Her sleek look also featured a black tuxedo jacket and a white blouse, which she styled with black sandals, a clear Alice + Olivia ‘Lucite’ box clutch and a hot-pink lip colour which deepens my girl crush… if that is at all possible.
Doutzen Kroes: The model wore a navy-and-crimson cropped crewneck sweater and matching box-pleated skirt from the Spring 2013 collection, which we’ve seen on the red carpet once before courtesy of Cat Deeley. Like Cat, Doutzen kept her styling simple with a black clutch and black sandals.
Hilary Rhoda: Also opting for stripes from the Spring 2013 collection, the model styled her black-and-green striped top and pleated sequin skirt with gold Michael Kors ‘Mikaela’ sandals which matched her box clutch. I love how she opted for gold accessories when the others here had selected black.
Solange and Hilary stand out for me. Who do you love here?

Many more stars joined Sarah Jessica Parker and Alexa Chung on the red carpet last night for the amfAR New York Gala to kick off Fall 2013 Fashion Week.
Heidi Klum: No surprises that the Project Runway host wore a Michael Kors gown. Her black jersey halter gown with crystal embroidery was styled with a white-and-black diamond necklace and a matching ring by her favourite jeweller, Lorraine Schwartz. Sleek locks and kohl-rimmed eyes completed her look.
Crystal Renn: The model was wearing… you guessed it – Zac Posen. Her bold red gown with a floor-sweeping skirt was styled with Lorraine Schwartz ruby earrings and a retro updo. As predictable as this look is, for Crystal it never gets old.
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. Continue reading →
