Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner

Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner

Chanel hosted a dinner party to celebrate the Tribeca Film Festival artists in New York City yesterday evening.

Alexa Chung: The TV presenter was of course at the event, wearing a charming beige tweed Chanel Spring 2013 dress with pearl buttons. Her styling was to be expected, with a Chanel quilted bag and dual-colour beige-and-black Chanel Mary Jane pumps.

Shala Monroque: The Prada/Miu Miu devotee clearly didn’t read the invite. The fashion editor opted to wear a Miu Miu nude embellished dress from the Spring 2010 collection, which she accented with a large beetle brooch. You may remember that Kerry Washington’s Golden Globe dress was inspired by this collection. I am usually a big fan of Shala’s style, but the heavy blazer, floral-accented Jesus sandals and blue bag are not working for me at all.

Kiernan Shipka: Out on a school night for the third night in a row, the young ‘Mad Man’ actress wore a denim dress with chequered trims from the Spring 2013 collection. Black booties and a hot-pink Chanel bag keeps this look youthful.

amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week Red Carpet Round Up

amfAR New York Gala 1

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.

Chanel’s Fine Jewelry 80th Anniversary Celebration

Here are six more looks from the celebration of Chanel Fine Jewelry’s 80th anniversary of the ‘Bijoux De Diamants’ collection, created by Gabrielle Chanel, in New York City yesterday evening.

January Jones: After knocking it out of the fashion ballpark at the Emmys, I’m deeply disappointed by January on this occasion. Between the ghostly makeup, low bandeau and the off-white maxi skirt, the best way to sum up this Chanel Fall 2008 Couture look would be “a hot mess”.

Leigh Lezark: It was left to the DJ and FROWer to bring some glamour to proceedings. Leigh looked stunning wearing a black net Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 gown with PVC embroidery which was styled with a matching bolero with a high neckline. A Perspex clutch, a simple updo and barely there makeup save for kohl-rimmed eyes completed her look.

Giovanna Battaglia: The editor gives me a dilemma. Do I look at the shoes or her Chanel Resort 2013 dress first? Because both are screaming for my attention.

MAC & Carine Roitfeld ‘Le Bal’

I hope you all keep up with my tweets and Instagram pictures from the MAC & Carine Roitfeld ‘Le Bal’ celebrations which took place yesterday at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild during Paris Fashion Week.

One of the first to arrive was the lovely Karlie Kloss, my hero, who looked gorgeous wearing an Alexander Wang Spring 2013 fresh-off-the-runway look.

She got the ‘smoky eye’ memo, as did Poppy Delevingne, who smouldered on the red carpet wearing an Emilio Pucci black long-sleeve dress with a gold dragon from the recent Spring 2013 collection.

Carine Roitfeld arrived wearing signature all black Givenchy avec smoky eyes, the inspiration for the whole evening.

‘The Conversation’ Series Launch Celebration

Here are the rest of the looks from the Series Launch Celebration of ‘The Conversation’ held at the DVF Studio in New York City yesterday which was also attended by Diane Kruger and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Giovanna Battaglia: The contributing fashion editor to W magazine wore a black Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2012 black long-sleeve dress decorated with silver fringed embellishments. Her dress was teamed with Prada embellished patent-leather slingback wedge sandals with a pop of colour courtesy of her green Edie Parker clutch.

Malin Akerman: Usually the actress can do no wrong in my book, but I wish she’d been more adventurous with her shoe choice like Giovanna when selecting heels for her gold metallic mini dress.

Coco Rocha: The model works this high-neck long-sleeve dress with a fierce supermodel pose. She accessorized with black patent peep-toes and an aqua Diane von Furstenberg ‘Lytton’ python-effect leather box clutch.

Rashida Jones: The actress has me crying out for colour. She selected an all-black look which consisted of a chiffon sleeveless blouse, a textured shorts and black booties. Not wearing colour or prints to a DVF event; isn’t there some kinda law against that?

7th Annual Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner

Here are some more looks from the 7th Annual Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner held at The Odeon in New York City last night.

Giovanna Battaglia: The contributing fashion editor to W magazine becomes the first person to wear a look from the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012 collection. Whilst I love her cherub print dress and I love the embroidered floral boots, but I’m not crazy about them together. There is just too much going on especially when you factor in the array of colourful bangles, gold leaf headband and the white tassel bag.

Alexa Chung: Chanel’s favourite Brit girl was of course in attendance. Opting for a black velvet sleeveless mini dress with black tights, a black Chanel quilted bag and black open toe sandals, I couldn’t be more bored.

Liv Tyler: The actress lifts me from my Alexa boredom slump by opting for a Chanel colourful printed maxi dress. I would’ve loved to have seen the dress without the long ivory Chanel coat.

Naomi Watts: Like most of the other attendees, Naomi was in head-to-toe Chanel. I just wish the look was a lot more interesting.

Giovanna Battaglia In Diane von Furstenberg – ‘The Artist’ Luncheon

Giovanna Battaglia attended a luncheon in honour of ‘The Artist’ hosted by Harvey Weinstein, Diane von Furstenberg and George Stevens Jr. this week.

The L’Uomo Vogue editor and freelance stylist wore a Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2011 dress.

Her gorgeous ‘Elsey Bis jewel’ dress was teamed with black patent toe-cap knee-high boots and a black cardigan.

I love the beautiful multi-coloured embellishments; this really is a stand-out look despite being mostly black.

A silver link necklace and a black clutch completed her look.
