#DKNY25 Birthday Bash

DKNY25-Birthday-Bash2

Haute—and just plain hot—topics abounded at the lively #DKNY Birthday Bash on Monday, where fashionable femmes descended on 23 Wall Street in New York City. Skin was in, and so was sultry appeal, as PYTs flashed their DKNY best—and posed with designer Donna Karan and her iconic taxicab cake.

Emmy Rossum: Sizzling in gold, the actress illuminated the scene with a Midas touch like no other. With the glint of a metallic clutch, black Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps and a slicked-back ’do, Emmy was dripping in glamour.

Rita Ora: With her cool edge firmly in place, the songstress set off her paisley-print playsuit with a white jersey blazer, emblazoned with the number ‘25’ on the back. An embellished baseball hat capped off the sporty effect, whilst studded black Christian Louboutin ‘Artifice’ heels put the vamp in this game-changing outfit. Rita’s short platinum crop, along with lavender eye shadow and a cherry-red lip, added even more dynamic impact.

Hailee Steinfeld: The young starlet took a safer approach in a white, grey and black colour-block T-shirt and flared organza skirt. Her long wavy locks, smokey-rust eye makeup and black clunky shoes all registered as a bit lacklustre, when she could have had so much more fun.

Hailee Steinfeld’s Teen Choice Awards Starburst Nail Art

Hailee Steinfeld's Teen Choice Awards Starbust Nail Art

During Comic-Con, Hailee Steinfeld’s nail art managed to even upstage her all-eyes-on-you Kenzo dress, and she was at it again for the Teen Choice Awards.

At first glance it would appear that the nail art was merely replicating the colour and starburst print on her House of Holland dress, but there is more to it than first meets the eye: Hailee was sending out an important message.

The teen had seen an anti-bullying campaign in a magazine where young girls were asked to make a “pinky swear” promise to be kind by wearing blue polish on their pinky fingers, so that’s exactly what she did.

Chanel celebrity manicurist Ashlie Johnson created the look, starting off with two coats of Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Elixir before coating the actress’s pinkies with Chanel’s Le Vernis Nail Colour in Blue Satin.

The blue was also used to replicate the starburst pattern seen on her frock on the ring fingers, with a layer of Chanel’s Extreme Shine Nail Lacquer Top Coat and a sprinkle of glitter for added shine completing the look.

Hailee Steinfeld In House of Holland – 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Hailee Steinfeld In House of Holland - 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Hailee Steinfeld was in attendance at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California on Sunday.

The teen starlet wore a House of Holland Resort 2014 tangerine-and-blue star-print dress with a contrasting ruffle hem styled with complementary tangerine Oscar Tiye ‘Malikah’ sandals – which we recently saw on Minka Kelly – and an Amanda Pearl slate-grey clutch.

I love how playful she was with her look, opting for matching tangerine-and-blue nail polish, and her wavy tresses are divine, but I am not a fan of the heavy eye makeup.

It almost puts me entirely off the whole look.

Hailee Steinfeld In Bibhu Mohapatra – Summit Entertainment’s Press Event For ‘Ender’s Game’

Hailee Steinfeld In Bibhu Mohapatra -  Summit Entertainment's Press Event For 'Ender's Game'

Hailee Steinfeld attended Summit Entertainment’s Comic-Con press event, held at Hard Rock Hotel San Diego in California, with her third look of the day.

Opting for separates again, she wore a green-and-white printed long-sleeve top with a contrasting blue-and-white trumpet skirt with a similar print from the Bibhu Mohapatra Resort 2014 collection.

I love how adventurous this look is, and that she didn’t opt for a solid white top with this skirt.

A half-up, half-down hairstyle and Robert Clergerie ‘Lullaby’ pale-blue pumps with gold trims completed her look.

Hailee Steinfeld In Michael Kors – ‘Ender’s Game’ Comic-Con Press Line

Hailee Steinfeld In Michael Kors - 'Ender's Game' Comic-Con Press Line

Hailee Steinfeld attended the ‘Ender’s Game’ Comic-Con press line at the San Diego Convention Center in California yesterday evening.

Many of you weren’t too enamoured with her earlier printed look, but I have a feeling this look will fare better.

She wore a Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2013 look which consisted of a white short-sleeve shirt and black cropped pants. As simple and effortless as it is, the look for me is much improved.

Borrowed-from-the-boys patent-leather Christian Louboutin ‘Zazou’ derby flats as well as a chic top knot adds a charming spin on her masculine-inspired look with a hot-pink lip colour providing the finishing touch.

Check out her comic-inspired nail art in the pictures below.

Hailee Steinfeld In Kenzo - 'Enders Game' Fan Experience Press Preview

All eyes were on Hailee Steinfeld, who attended the ‘Enders Game’ Fan Experience Press Preview night yesterday evening ahead of today’s official opening of Comic-Con 2013 in San Diego, California.

She opted for a playful Kenzo Fall 2013 eye-print maxi dress, which she styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Resillissima’ booties and comic-book inspired nail art, getting truly into the spirit of the event.

Red lips to match her dress and side-swept waves completed her look.

2013 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards

2013 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards

The 2013 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California, where once again the majority of the celebs were decked out in Max Mara or Sportmax.

Hailee Steinfeld: The young actress was feeling very blue, wearing a Sportmax blue suede-and-leather sleeveless dress featuring a pleated skirt, which is a 100% upgrade from yesterday’s look. On this occasion, she styled her look with a blue Max Mara ‘Hollywood II’ clutch and Jimmy Choo ‘Kalan’ ankle-strap peep-toes. Pops of pink via her nails, kohl-rimmed eyes, and flawless makeup completed her look. Which look do you prefer: the grey from yesterday or today’s vivid blue?

Kiernan Shipka: Hailee’s fellow teen actress, who often finds herself on best-dressed lists, wore a Max Mara black above-the-knee dress featuring perforated details etched into pretty stars. Keeping her makeup very minimal and opting for wavy tresses, the ‘Mad Men’ actress styled her look with a Christian Louboutin ‘Sweet Charity’ bag with a gold bow accent and Christian Louboutin ‘Pigaresille’ pumps.

Stana Katic: The ‘Castle’ actress has a pair of the best pins in Hollywood; however, she loves to wear pants, much like her onscreen character. Like at the Billboard Awards, Stana opted for a jumpsuit. The scarlet one-shoulder Max Mara jumpsuit was styled with a Jennifer Behr headband placed on top of her updo. I can’t say I’m crazy about the headband; I guess she was inspired by all the tiaras we saw this weekend at the royal wedding. Kohl-rimmed eyes, nude glossy lips and Saint Laurent ‘Jane’ sandals completed her look. Are you digging the headband?

Women In Film Max Mara Face of the Future Awards Honouring Hailee Steinfeld

Women In Film Max Mara Face of the Future Awards Honouring Hailee Steinfeld

On Tuesday evening, Max Mara hosted an evening in conjunction with W Magazine to honour Hailee Steinfeld as the Women In Film’s 2013 Face of the Future award winner. The attendees either wore Max Mara or Sportmax.

Hailee Steinfeld: The woman, or should I say girl, of the hour wore a Sportmax grey cotton-and-neoprene sleeveless dress, which she styled with a black clutch and Jimmy Choo ‘Myth’ black-and-yellow sandals. For an honorary guest, the dress doesn’t stand out enough for my liking. Thankfully, the accessories – a red lip colour and youthful side-swept wavy ponytail – save the look.

Jordana Brewster: While I don’t like Jordana’s accessories, when I saw her Sportmax ‘Azulene’ white-and-orange floral-print sleeveless dress my reaction was “this is more like it”. The looks stands out; it’s fresh, colourful and perfect for the current season.

Olivia Munn: The ‘Magic Mike’ actress also grabbed by attention in her Max Mara red-and-black velvet floral-printed dress featuring a black waistband, asymmetrical peplum and side slit. What it lacks in season appropriateness (who wears velvet in summer?), it makes up in vibrancy and ultra femininity. Like Jordana, the styling is way off track. The gold clutch gets a pass, but the grey Saint Laurent ‘Tribtoo’ heels get a hell no: mostly because of the colour, but I thought we had finally seen the back of these pumps.
