Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Fashion Star 1

A collection of other haute guests joined Miley Cyrus and Alexa Chung at the 30th Annual Night of Stars, presented by Fashion Group International, held yesterday at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. Here, a look at their statement-making entrances.

Zoe Kravitz: The starlet assured us that the cropped top trend is still alive and kicking with an Alexander Wang ensemble featuring a reptilian-embossed bralette and high-waisted long skirt. With such a strong, skin-baring moment, I would have preferred to see slightly more understated styling, rather than her braided updo and supremely smokey eye.

Joan Smalls: The model posed in a plunging Alexander Wang tuxedo halter jumpsuit that balanced a carefree and come-hither attitude with its daring lines, yet sporty dropped waist and pockets. She topped it off with wavy ponytail and and a pair of metallic-laced cage sandals.

Taylor Schilling: Working a Zuhair Murad white frock, embellished with black stencil flowers, the ‘Orange is the New Black’ star stayed far away from her character’s colours. She did add a punch via a forest-green Vince Camuto clutch and a magenta lip, finishing the ensemble with Nancy Newberg jewels and Kurt Geiger ankle-strap sandals.

2013 Couture Council Fashion Visionary Awards

The 2013 Couture Council Artistry of Fashion Award luncheon, hosted by The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology and honoring Michael Kors, brought out a stylish bunch of Michael Kors-clad event-goers to the David H. Koch Theater at New York City’s Lincoln Center on Wednesday.

Hilary Swank: The actress stood out in a flashy, aqua leopard-print fit-and-flare dress and black python sandals, both from the Michael Kors Resort 2014 collection. A black elongated, reptilian-like clutch from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection completed the animal instinct.

Michael Kors: Surrounded by some of his leading fashion ladies, the designer was casual-cool in a basic, all-black look, with a blazer, T-shirt and trousers. His signature shades were present and accounted for, naturally.

Anna Wintour: The ‘Vogue’ editrix kept up chic appearances and paid homage to the guest of honor in a custom Michael Kors micro-print frock, styled with sunnies and her favourite Manolo Blahnik sandals.

L'Oreal 'Collection Privee by Color Riche' Ad Campaign

Actresses Freida Pinto, Julianne Moore, Jane Fonda, Fan Bingbing and Eva Longoria pose with models Liya Kebede, Inès de La Fressange and Doutzen Kroes for L’Oreal’s ‘Collection Privee by Color Riche’ campaign.

Captured by Norman Jean Roy, this must have been taken during Cannes Film Festival when all the ladies were providing the eye candy on the carpet while fulfilling their ambassadorial roles.

Sadly Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are not featured in this ad.

The women all wore black dresses, or black blouses and skirts for the shoot.

While it’s hard to identify most, the one which stands out is Fan Bingbing in her Ulyana Sergeenko Couture gown thanks to the distinctive neckline.

Update: Doutzen is wearing a Gucci Spring 2006 gown.

Who Wore Michael Kors Better Cat Deeley, Doutzen Kros, Miroslava Duma, Yasmin le Bon or Nieves Alvarez

The navy-and-blue Michael Kors Spring 2013 look, featuring a crop top and pleated skirt, was so popular it made five appearances on the red carpet.

It was Cat Deeley who kick-started the obsession with this look when she wore it to the ‘Dukes of Melrose’ launch party back in March styled with a Mulberry bag.

A month later, model Doutzen Kros looked considerably more comfortable in her look which she wore to the Michael Kors and the United Nations World Food Programme dinner, styled with black Michael Kors accessories.

Fashion editor Miroslava Duma styled her look with PVC and black pumps at the Michael Kors London dinner party.

Yasmin le Bon wore the look with a longer top while hosting the Vogue Festival with the designer himself, and finally, Nieves Alvarez wore the much worn look to a Johnsons event in Madrid last month with Christian Louboutin boots, which didn’t work with her look.

Doutzen Kros wins for me as I prefer her overall styling. Cat was my least favourite as she looked the least comfortable rocking the crop top.

On The Elle Photoshoot With Doutzen Kroes In Fendi, Prada & 31 Phillip Lim

Doutzen Kroes was spotted getting ready for her close up, sporting a variety of looks on the set of her Elle Magazine shoot this week in New York City.

Having to shoot out of season is a normal day’s work for a model, which is why Doutzen seems in very good spirits despite wearing a heavy fur and feather-trimmed Fendi Fall 2013 coat while on set.

She also got to strike a pose in a gold lamé Prada Fall 2013 dress styled exactly the same way from the runway with a grey knit off-the-shoulder sweater.

Her final look of the day was a 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2013 look, which featured a camel sweater, a blue shirt styled the same way as it was on the runway, a tan leather skirt and over-the-knee open-toe boots.

I can’t wait to see the final spread.
