#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.
