19th Annual Art Walk NY

19th Annual Art Walk NY

It was very much a Dolce fest at the 19th Annual Art Walk NY held at 82 Mercer in New York City on Tuesday evening.

Coco Rocha: The model kept it simple yet striking in black wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 black jacquard dress with a lace yoke and sleeve. It’s a shame the shoes are so bland, but she makes up for it with that bright orange lip.

Elettra Wiedemann: Opting for a significantly more captivating Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 frock inspired by the Byzantine mosaics of Sicily’s Monreale Cathedral which sparkle with crystal, sequin and bead detailing, this heavyweight probably didn’t need much accessorising so she added a Rauwolf red clutch and Dolce & Gabbana crucifix earrings.

Hilary Rhoda: By far my favourite from this bunch, I have been obsessed by this ruby crystal-embellished dress for a long while, not only by the colour and bedazzlement, but also the excellent craftsmanship. Simple styling was most definitely the right road to take this exquisite piece down.

Best Dressed of the Week – Jessica Alba In Ralph Lauren, Daniel Radcliffe In David Hart & Hilary Rhoda In Prabal Gurung

BDOTW

At the 11th hour Jessica Alba won your hearts in the beautiful Ralph Lauren look which she wore to the brand’s Spring 2014 show during New York Fashion Week.

Not only were you enamoured of the chic nature of her look, but also the effortless styling and contrast between the heavy knit top and floaty chiffon skirt.

Jessica was so close to winning for me, but Hilary Rhoda in her sexy asymmetrical Prabal Gurung frock with cut-out details was my eventual choice.

Like Jessica, it was both perfectly styled and effortlessly groomed. I couldn’t take my eyes off her.

When it came to the fellas, we were on the same track once again by voting for Daniel Radcliffe in David Hart.

I have recently looked back over a few of his red carpet appearances because I was trying to discover when he became such a snazzy red carpet dresser. You just can’t help but be hypnotized by the rich grape colour and impeccable cut and tailoring of his suit.

Estee Lauder ‘Modern Muse’ Fragrance Launch Party Red Carpet Roundup

Estee Lauder 'Modern Muse' Fragrance Launch Party Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the rest of the attendees at the Estee Lauder ‘Modern Muse’ Fragrance Launch Party held at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City yesterday evening.

Joan Smalls: The model snagged the first look from the Prabal Gurung Spring 2014 collection, wearing a lavender-and-ivory strapless dress with light embroidery. The only thing I would change about the look is the heavy Casadei pumps.

Hailee Steinfeld: The young actress wore a cute Marc Jacobs Resort 2014 navy floral satin dress with a pleated skirt styled with a navy cardi and brown ankle-strap sandals. Had she opted for better heels and ditched the cardi this would’ve been a more memorable look.

Hilary Rhoda: Like Joan, she also wore a Prabal Gurung look, selecting a sexy one-shoulder ivory frock from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection featuring a sculptural ruffled hem and gold baroque border. Jimmy Choo ‘Besso’ black-and-gold sandals, tousled tresses and a gold clutch completed her look. She was by far the best dressed at this event for me.

Models @ 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Models @ 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Some of our favourite cat-walkers were among the mix of style royalty at the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City. The models definitely had their moment last night, strutting out a slew of bold-name designers and even bolder looks to match.

Adriana Lima: Donning a leggy and luxe Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy Fall 2013 confection, this Brazilian beauty did justice to the edgy designer—who was the CFDA International Award Winner—even with black bloomers peeking through the gown. A center-parted ‘do and glowing makeup finished the look. Fellow model Joan Smalls rocked a similar Givenchy sheer design at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala. Who do you think wore it best?

Miranda Kerr: This model mom made waves with a retro-modern frock by Proenza Schouler. The square neckline and fit-and-flare shape were nothing if not fun and provided the perfect palette for the trippy, painterly cerulean and verdigris hues. More sophistication came with a classic pair of black, triple ankle-wrap Stuart Weitzman heels, Jennifer Meyer jewels and a silver Stuart Weitzman clutch, along with a fuchsia lippie and low bun.

Joan Smalls: The lovely Latina wore a breezy white, strapless Givenchy gown. The matte white panel on the bottom created a sort of casual, sundress feel. But upon closer inspection, it was anything but beach-y with a corseted bodice and sheer lace-embellished skirt. The glittering choker-necklace added a daring, darker note.

Models @ The 2013 Met Gala

Model @ The 2013 Met Gala

Here is a roundup of the models who took to the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday night.

Cara Delevingne: Wearing Burberry, the British model nailed the theme, working a studded navy column dress with a plunging neckline. Her part-braided ‘do and studded clutch perfected her look. She was easily one of the best on the night.

Gisele Bundchen: The model wore an Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013 black mini dress with revealing grommet detailing. You slammed Gwyneth for wearing a gown with sheer sides; does Gisele get a pass?

Karlie Kloss: I never thought I would say this about Karlie: she looks frumpy. Ever since she chopped off her locks she has lost her mojo. This Louis Vuitton granny-chic look ages her about 40 years. Betty White would look better in this frock.
