Stella McCartney Resort 2015 Presentation

Stella McCartney Resort 2015 Presentation

Stella McCartney presented her Resort 2015 collection at Elizabeth Street Gardens on Thursday (June 5) in New York City, which, as always, was a celebrity affair, although the usual suspects were not in attendance.

Amber Heard: The actress donned a Stella McCartney black, orange and maroon mini dress with fringe detailing and a sculptured hemline from the Fall 2014 collection. I can’t say I’m a fan of this dress to begin with, but the accessories are not working with it either.

Helena Christensen: When it comes to the supermodel’s Stella McCartney ‘Alan’ lace and silk organza dress, it was very much a case of “this is more like it”. She was the picture of modern femininity in this romantic Spring 2014 look, which she effortlessly styled with silver sandals and a two-tone clutch.

Christian Dior Cruise 2015 Front Row

Dior Cruise 2015 Front Row

The Christian Dior Cruise 2015 show took place on Wednesday (May 7) in Brooklyn, New York City.

The front row was packed with Dior devotees, with Jennifer Lawrence notably absent as she is currently filming ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ in Paris, France.

Rihanna: Despite the tattoos and our knowledge of the Bajan star telling us otherwise, Rihanna looked really sweet wearing a dainty Dior pale-pink quilted silk dress with a ruffled hemline. The look was styled with Dior tri-colour pumps with an asymmetrical strap, and a metallic top-handle ‘Lady Dior’ bag from the Spring 2014 collection, plus a ‘Diorific’ necklace and bracelet and ‘Mise en Dior’ earrings.

Marion Cotillard: Just when I thought the French actress had turned a corner, she’s back to selecting tent dresses. It’s a shimmering Dior off white silk Fall 2014 dress with an embroidered off white knitted t-shirt, but oversized and unflattering nonetheless. It screams maternity. Her Dior choices continue to baffle me.

Margot Robbie: The actress is not having a good week. First the Met Gala and now this. Possibly the excessive tan is at fault here, as it’s clashing with her Dior gold lamé Pre-Fall 2014 skirt which was paired with a Dior green wool crepe top. She styled her look with a Dior black clutch and pumps, plus one of those ‘Diorganic’ necklaces featuring a waterfall of green crystals and resin beads that entwine around the neck like leaves which hails from the Spring 2014 collection.

Who Wore Preen Better…Helena Christensen or Jodi Kidd?

Who Wore Preen Better Helena Christensen or Jodi Kidd

Helena Christensen wore a Preen ‘Dawn’ citrus-flower-embroidered navy-and-lime-green three-quarter-sleeve dress featuring a solid lime-green back panel while attending Matches Fashion’s celebration of their Rika Magazine partnership.

Her demure dress with striking, vibrant embroidery was styled with simple black pumps.

Fellow model Jodie Kidd wore the same dress while attending the evening to celebrate the Global Fund last month.

This is a perfect example of how accessories can elevate a look. Jodie’s sexy lace Jimmy Choos, bracelets and a black clutch add so much more to the look than Helena’s simple pumps.

An easy win for Jodie.

Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Party

H&M hosted a party in New York City to celebrate their Maison Martin Margiela collaboration on Tuesday evening.

Mena Suvari: Despite not being a fan of Mena’s trompe l’oeil bodysuit, she’s totally working this look, as per. She styled the look with a navy ‘Hitched Up’ skirt, tan wedges with a Perspex heel and a giant silver metallic candy wrapper clutch (a must-have from this collection). She was my favourite at this event.

Leigh Lezark: I’m not surprised that the DJ picked the most colourful and difficult-to-wear piece from the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection. She’s never one to fade into the background. The look includes a colourful printed-scarves top and skirt. She opted for the wedges in black.

Selma Blair: The actress wore the black version of the ‘Horizontally Worn’ dress with black wedges. I love how she styled the look with the china bumps and red lip colour, but I prefer the blue version of this dress which appears in the lookbook.

Julianne Moore: A simple black Maison Martin Margiela for H&M suit with peaked shoulders look super chic on Julianne.

Sarah Jessica Parker: The actress looked like an Olsen twin engulfed with so many layers and an oversized blazer.

Helena Christensen: The supermodel makes this £179.99 leather ‘Car Seat Cover’ dress look even more expensive. She styled her look with all black accessories.

The Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection hits stores November 15. Click here to see the accessories.

2012 Tribeca Film Festival Vanity Fair Party

There was plenty more eye candy to be had at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival Vanity Fair Party in New York City, which was held at the State Supreme Courthouse on Tuesday night.

Helena Christensen: The supermodel wore a charming Marc by Marc Jacobs ‘Palmetto’ eyelet dress which was a fun, flirty and unexpected look for this occasion. White peep-toes with a pink base, a gold clutch and chic updo completed the look.

Jessica White: The model wore a stunning Abed Mahfouz sleeveless gown with a thigh-high split, lace bodice and draped skirt. With her hair tied back into a neat ponytail she completed the look with red embellished sandals and Jeffrey Rackover jewelry.

Ivanka Trump: The New Yorker, who does chic like no other, wore a Carolina Herrera Spring 2012 dress. The stripe print silk chiffon dress with geometric lace inserts and a red patent leather hinge belt was styled with a grey ostrich clutch, black pumps with a mesh panel, onyx drop earrings and deep red lip colour.

Wendi Murdoch: The businesswoman wore an Alberta Ferretti Spring 2012 part knit, part crochet colourful dress. She didn’t rely on her amazing dress to do all the work, as she added a red clutch and the same Giuseppe Zanotti sandals Scarlett Johansson wore to ‘The Avenger’ LA premiere, but in baby blue.

Tory Burch: The designer wore a Christian Dior Resort 2012 tri-colour dress with black pumps. You may recall that Emma Stone wore the same dress to the 2011 Teen Choice Awards.

Lily Cole: With so many beautiful women wearing amazing looks on this red carpet Lily very much let the side down. I’m not so much disappointed by her beige and blue sack-of-a-dress, but more her battered ballet flats.
