Gucci Cosmetics Launch Party

Gucci Cosmetics Launch

Gucci hosted yet another event this week, this time to celebrate the launch of its long-awaited makeup line, Gucci Cosmetics.

The event was hosted at The Carlyle Hotel in New York City on Wednesday (4 June) by Gucci’s Creative Director Frida Giannini in honour of Charlotte Casiraghi, who is the face of the brand.

Charlotte Casiraghi: The woman of the hour donned a pale-blue Gucci Fall 2014 dress with a leather bodice, which was originally presented in mustard. Keeping the look clean and simple, she added silver Gucci sandals.

Frida Giannini: Needless to say, I’m salivating over Frida’s Gucci black jumpsuit. The off-runway piece incorporates the bejewelled bib and leather collar we saw on the Fall 2014 runway.

Solange Knowles: The singer/DJ attended her third event in so many days. Standing out in a hot-pink Gucci Pre-Fall 2014 suit, she added a sea-blue clutch and gold Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals to her look.

Harpers Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Harpers Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards Red Carpet RoundupThe fashionable femmes just kept flooding the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards, hosted at Claridge’s Hotel in London, England on Tuesday evening. Alongside the starlets, a sweep of models and designers also took to the red carpet.

Natalia Vodianova: The Russian model, who was named Philanthropist of the Year, smiled brightly in a simply chic Stella McCartney Spring 2014 black and navy gown that managed to be both sporty and sleek with a cutout mock-halter neckline and graphic, cerulean colour-block panels at the sides. A Stella McCartney black faux-leather clutch—and what seemed to be barely a slick of makeup—finished this natural beauty’s effortless look.

L’Wren Scott: To accept her ‘Tastemaker of the Year’ award, presented by Olivia Munn, the statuesque designer donned a custom Lady Wisteria dress from her namesake collection. She wore the Asian-inspired, black silk crepe marocain number, with hand-shaded, red thread embroideries, with a pair of crimson, bow-topped pumps. The frock’s thigh-high slit only accented those mile-long legs.

Frida Giannini: The Gucci Creative Director, who received the ‘International Designer’ of the year award, flaunted a Gucci long-sleeve, low-back gown, in a glittery lurex black, silver and platinum leopard pattern. It was edgy-glam at its finest.

Jourdan Dunn: The cat walker, who claimed the Model of the Year prize, strutted out a Tom Ford black-and-white panel gown with side slit and a matching Stark clutch. While this monochrome moment was a mix of sophistication and sexiness, her slinky after-party number from Julien Macdonald’s Spring 2014 collection was just plain sexy. The sheer, netted gold number left little to the imagination—and even littler room for undergarments.

Frida Giannini In Gucci – Gucci Award For Women In Cinema & Gucci Fragrance Launch Party

Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini gave us a masterclass in wearing the label at two events in Venice over the weekend.

For the Gucci Award for Women in Cinema soiree, Frida chose a black silk double georgette beaded gown from the design house’s Fall 2012 collection.

The plunging neckline lifts the ensemble from its androgynous tailored roots, as does the black on black degraded leopard print, which you can just make out in the photo above (left). The long blonde tresses, peep-toe heels and exquisite earrings also add a feminine touch.

For the Gucci Fragrance Launch, Frida switched gears into a beautiful Gucci one-of-a-kind silver and gunmetal v-neck silk crepe cocktail dress, which looks as at home here as it would on the set of ‘The Great Gatsby’.

I’m in love with the whole look, particularly the art deco graphic beading and black diamond crystal embellishments. The soft undo, drop earrings and peep-toe grey suede heels are the perfect accompaniment.

Which look is your favourite?

Vanity Fair/Gucci Party Honoring Martin Scorsese – Girls In Gucci

It’s official Gucci have taken over Cannes Film Festival this year.

They threw a party yesterday with Vanity Fair honoring Martin Scorsese with many fabulous ladies attending – in Gucci of course.

Jennifer Lopez wore a one-of-a-kind pale grey one shoulder silk Gucci dress with pleated organza and georgette ruffle detail on the shoulder.

Her look was paired with Jimmy Choo ‘Mercury’ silver sandals.

I would’ve liked to have seen her in something more fitted.

Her host Frida Giannini wore one of my favourite dresses of this event.

She wore a self designed a one-of-a-kind Gucci grey halterneck dress with cutaway shoulder neckline, metal beaded embroidery and mirrored geometric stone detailed neckline.

Lea Seydoux has come a long way from her first red Cannes red carpet appearance at the Robin Hood premiere.

I love her in this one-of-a-kind strapless dark green pleated chiffon Gucci gown with horizontal drape detail on the bust and empire waistline.

Definitely one to watch.

Salma Hayek continues to wear nothing but Gucci during Cannes Film Festival, as she opted for a one-of-a-kind bronze paillette Gucci cap sleeved dress with a deep v-neck to show of her famous assets.

Naomi Watts opted for a sexy Gucci black sequined dress with an open back.

Camilla Belle shows why she is at Cannes Film Festival – to look pretty.

The actress was beyond gorgeous opting for a one-of-a-kind off the shoulder Gucci dress encrusted with gunmetal Swarovski stones, beads and sequins.

Gucci grey was obviously the colour of the night.

Gucci Icon-Temporary Flash Sneaker Store Launch

Evan Rachel Wood seems to be the Gucci girl of the moment.

On this occasion she wore a one shoulder mini Gucci Fall 2009 dress which has already been worn on the red carpet.

Her sparkling dress was covered in green and black striped crystals which she belted as per the runway.

She paired her mini dress with a large black cuff and black multi-strap high-heeled sandals to toughen up her gorgeous look.

Claire Danes is not much of a dare devil on the red carpet, so I’m not surprised she opted for one of the pieces from the Gucci Resort 2010 collection and not the rock chick Fall 2009 collection.

Her stripy lemon and blue dress already has me wishing for summer 2010, but her Gucci triple platform pumps had me wishing she’d picked another pair of heels to go with this summery dress.

Frida Giannini hosted this event, and like Donatella Versace in the previous post, Frida is already sporting her own Spring 2010 collection.

The Creative Director wore a simple black ensemble including skinny pants, and a black blazer with an interesting fringed detail on the shoulders.

Poppy Delevigne wore a silver Gucci Fall 2009 over-sized tunic top paired with black leggings.

This is quite a casual look, but not too casual to make her look like she shouldn’t have walked the red carpet at this event.

Mischa Barton looks good.

She keeps on smiling no matter what life throws at her.

The star worked a black sequined long-sleeved dress with plunging neckline.

Red carpet ankle boots as standard.

Fashion Group International’s 26th Annual Night Of Stars

It’s not often I’m wowed by Mary J Blige, but this is very much a wow moment.

The singer looked stunning wearing a black Gucci Spring 2010 halter gown with jeweled leather harness neckline detail.

Truly outstanding.

Potato sack is the first thing that springs to mind when I see Eva Mendes wearing her modified slouchy grey Calvin Klein Spring 2010 dress.

I personally preferred the dress on the runway, but it’s just not a red carpet look.

And as if the look wasn’t bad enough she adds shoe-boots to the mix.

Iman wows again for the 3rd time in a row wearing a dusty rose Michael Kors sparkler.

I say it every time, but its amazing how ridiculously gorgeous this woman looks every time she hits the red carpet.

Emmy Rossum’s blew me away looking spectacular wearing a draped golden Donna Karan gown which make her look like a Grecian goddess.

Evan Rachel Wood smoldered in a burgundy Gucci gown with antique gold fringe detail on on sleeve.

She looked poised and elegant with her hair swept back into an slick updo, pairing the gown with a gold python clutch with bamboo tassel detail to match her dress.

Gucci ‘s Creative Director Frida Giannini received a “Design Star Honoree” award at this event.

Wearing a self-designed Gucci mini dress paired with a Gucci clutch and Gucci Fall 2009 heels, she posed with James Franco and Mary J Blige who both wore Gucci.

A very demure Gwen Stefani wore a LBD  with a rise and fall hem, paired with YSL black patent Trib Two’s and her L.A.M.B clutch.

I was trying to work out what was so different about Gwen’s look, then it hit me.

She’s not wearing her trademark red lipstick, instead she opted for a nude shade.

Although I like this look, she has totally thrown me by being so unpredictable.

Dita von Teese was typically beautiful sticking to her trademark red lip.

The Burlesque beauty wore a black vintage gown, with a head piece by Stephen Jones.
