Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012 Presentation

Most Resort collections are only showcased via Look Books on Style.com, but Salvatore Ferragamo presented their Resort 2012 collection in some style in New York City yesterday.

The presentation took place at the James B. Duke Mansion, which is the former home of glamorous American heiress, Doris Duke.

Their front row was just as glamorous as the Fifth Avenue location, as Eva Mendes, Freida Pinto, Ashley Greene and Teresa Palmer took their seats wearing head-to-toe Ferragamo.

Eva Mendes: The Latin beauty wore a two-tone Ferragamo front twist dress. She really went to town by adding a lot of jewels to her look which include an oversized ring, bangles and gorgeous earrings.

Freida Pinto: The Indian actress was radiant wearing a summer chic Ferragamo look which included printed halter top with a white pencil skirt. I wasn’t surprised to see Freida at this event as she wears Ferragamo heels as often as Angelina Jolie on the red carpet. She usually opts for pumps, but she wore Ferragamo brown wedges on this occasion.

Ashley Greene: The Twilight star looked very sophisticated wearing an ivory belted Ferragamo wrap front dress. I love her for having fun with her accessories on this occasion. Bold red cap toe pumps and a houndstooth Ferragamo clutch from the Fall 2011 collection completed her look.

Teresa Palmer: The Australian actress went one step further, by wearing a Ferragamo houndstooth dress from the Fall 2011 collection which has a deep plunging neckline. Classic Ferragamo black pumps and a silver clutch completed her look.

They all look equally fabulous. I couldn’t pick a favourite. If you twisted my arm I could only narrow it down to Freida, Ashley and Teresa.

Who Wore Prada Better? Eva Mendes or Elle Macpherson

Back in November, Eva Mendes was in Madrid to promote her movie “The Other Guys.” She did so wearing an eye-catching Prada number from the label’s brightly-coloured Spring 2011 collection.

The eclectic strapless dress features green and black stripes, bold baroque prints in lime green and orange and a ruffled hem.

Eva accessorized with only a pair of black Prada peep-toe shoes, letting the bright prints of the dress make the biggest statement.

She wore her hair down and kept her makeup fresh and glowing.

Elle MacPherson wore the same dress last week whilst attend a screening to launch party for “Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model” at the Soho Hotel in London.

The supermodel added a row of gold bracelets to her look, including a gorgeous snake bangle and a pair of sheer, peep-toe ankle booties.

Elle opted to style her hair in loose waves and added smoky eyeshadow and light pink lipstick to her look.

Both women look absolutely stunning in this dress, but their shoe choices leave a lot to be desired for.

Eva’s are uninspiring whilst Elle’s feel too dressy for this type of look.

Overall though, I think Eva looks the best as the dress hugs her curves in all the right places so she wins for me.

Eva Mendes In Roland Mouret – Spike TV’s 5th Annual 2011 “Guys Choice” Awards

Business At The Front, Party At The Back Award
Eva Mendes also attended at the Spike TV’s 5th Annual 2011 “Guys Choice” Awards which was held in LA this weekend.

I was just about to give this look a “Just OK” Award until I saw the back of her Roland Mouret Alamain gown.

Of course my girl wouldn’t let me down.

This is yet another classic example of beautiful draped dress by Mr Mouret made to look so incredibly sexy on Ms Mendes’ outstanding body.

My only niggle is the fold on the back of the dress. If it was totally smoothed out this would’ve been my favourite from this event.

A vintage gold YSL necklace, a Chanel clutch and Tabitha Simmons heels completed her sultry look.
