Red Carpet Fashion Awards

CFDA 1

Amid the crush of starlets and designers at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 2), the models definitely had their moment, too. They strutted out a range of dazzling, directional and sometimes daring looks at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

Joan Smalls: Putting her statuesque height to good use, Joan worked her midnight-navy Prabal Gurung draped, cutout gown to sexy effect also flaunting an Angelina leg through the thigh-high slit. She styled the look with metallic ankle-tie sandals and a mod fringe bang, but the gold choker necklace was unnecessary here.

Alessandra Ambrosio
: The Victoria’s Secret cat-walker took a red-hot approach in a Nonoo strapless gown featuring a structured bodice with a crossover ribbon tie at the back. She accessorized with Jennifer Fisher jewels, including a sharp, diamond-pointed pair of earrings.

Models @ The Met 1

It’s the time you’ve all been waiting for, Model @ The Met, where we take a look at all the leggy beauties who took to the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala in New York City on Monday (May 5).

Liu Wen: There is only one thing 100% guaranteed on Met Gala night: a Zac Posen gown will shut down the red carpet. Liu Wen worked this green strapless ballgown to perfection. Styled with David Yurman jewels and a black clutch, the next few words won’t come as a surprise: best-dressed nominee.

Georgia May Jagger: The British model wore a custom Mugler black and white lined slinky gown with a plunging neckline and satin trim styled with Sergio Rossi asymmetrical
‘Dali’ pumps. This gown is a first for the fashion house’s new creative director David Koma.

Peter Pilotto For Target Launch

The Peter Pilotto for Target launch event took place in New York City on Thursday (February 6). Having seen the collection up close myself at a dinner party hosted by Net-A-Porter.com (who will be carrying the entire line) in London last week, I was excited to see some of our favourite stars wearing the pieces.

As you would expect, all the pieces feature prints, which is very much the design duo’s signature.

Diane Kruger: The German actress worked a lace-sleeve printed blouse and step-hem skirt striped-and-floral-print ensemble with great aplomb. Having seen Diane master this look, which she styled with a Charlotte Olympia clutch and black ankle-strap pumps, I will be adding these two pieces to my collection of Peter Pilotto for Target pieces I already own.

Taylor Schilling: The blonde actress is wearing the same Peter Pilotto for Target lace-sleeve dual-floral-print dress that I own. You won’t be surprised to learn that I will not be styling mine with black pumps.

2014 amfAR New York Gala Models Roundup

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2014 amfAR New York Gala held at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (February 5) in New York City.

Karolina Kurkova: The Czech model looked stunning wearing a black Armani dress slashed on both the thigh and bodice, with both enriched by beaded detailing. Neutral makeup and bow-accented Jimmy Choo ‘Escape’ sandals completed her look.

Ajak Deng: Also wearing black with breathtaking results was Ajak Deng. Gearing up for a busy fashion month, she started off on the right note wearing a sparkling Kaufmanfranco Fall 2013 gown with sheer inserts which is very much on the right side of sexy.

Dree Hemingway: While everyone was wearing a gown, Dree marched to the beat of her own drum, wearing a super chic Chloé Resort 2014 look featuring a navy top, white ruffled shirt and loose-fit pants. She was my second favourite at this event after Lily Alridge.

Canon's Project Imaginat10n Film Festival

Canon’s Project Imaginat10n Film Festival at Alice Tully Hall in New York City was something of a Marchesa fest yesterday evening.

Georgina Chapman: Led by the designer herself, Georgina wore a black Fall 2013 fitted column-style Marchesa tulle cocktail dress with all-over floral embroidery and draped off-shoulder sleeves styled with signature accessories: Christian Louboutin pumps and a Marchesa quartz-clasp clutch. A half-up half-down hairdo perfected this romantic look.

Eva Longoria: As always, I gave a big sigh before writing out a critique for Eva Longoria. What she gives via her lush Marchesa raspberry strapless cocktail dress with 3D silk ribbon roses and bugle-bead twine embroidery along the neckline, she takes away with the oversized floral-print Marchesa envelope clutch.

Dree Hemingway: The model had no such issue, looking heavenly wearing a pale-blue slip dress with asymmetrical organza ruffles with a pale-blue organza collared tee shirt overlay. Opting to go matchy-matchy with the Marchesa clutch and glitter sandals, she added a vampy rouge lip colour to her stunning look.

Abigail Spencer: Rounding out a quartet of dames in Marchesa cocktail dresses, the ‘Suits’ actress wore a red strapless fitted frock with tonal French-knot and chenille threadwork embroidery, which she also styled with a Marchesa clutch, and white pumps to ensure the trend doesn’t die.

I do love each of the looks; it’s such a shame Eva’s styling let the side down, but 3 out of 4 ain’t bad.

The Sixth Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic took place on Saturday in Jersey City.

Last year’s event was so well turned out with stars wearing summery LWDs, but this year there was just a mishmash of looks, with not all seeming to befit the occasion.

Dree Hemingway: The model donned denim overalls, channelling her inner mechanic. She did style the look well with a Sophia Webster ‘Hold Me Speech Bubble’ leather clutch and platform heels.

Camila Alves: It’s been a while since we saw this style of Herve Leger dress on the red carpet. As beautiful as the TV host looks in this yellow-hued dress, all I can think about is Heidi Montag, who used to wear these dresses religiously.

Ashley Olsen: No surprises that the designer wore an oversized vintage look. While I do find myself liking this gold-embroidered red kaftan, which she styled with The Row accessories and Hermes shoes, a belt and some heels would’ve improved the look.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld: You may instantly recognise Julia’s Dolce & Gabbana floral frock. That’s because Lea Seydoux wore it last week during Cannes Film Festival. Julia styled her look with green wedges and a white Dolce & Gabbana bag. This is the only look I liked at this event.
