New Yorkers For Children Spring Dinner Dance

Here are the rest of the looks from the New Yorkers For Children Spring Dinner Dance.

Rose McGowan: I love Rose, but I’ve seen this Dolce & Gabbana gown so many times in so many colours that I’m over it, despite it looking awesome on her. Her look is enhanced with a stunning Lorraine Schwartz necklace.

Tinsley Mortimer: I’m not sure what she was thinking, but that’s too much dress for someone so petite. Her modified Christian Dior Fall 2008 dress is overwhelming her.

Who Wore Prabal Gurung Better? Hilary Rhoda, Chanel Iman & Iman

Prabal Gurung proves that he’s still a popular designer with celebs as 3 lovely supermodels have worn this gorgeous red and black asymmetrical Fall 2010 dress on the red carpet.

Hilary Rhoda gave the dress it’s red carpet debut last year at the Met Gala in New York City which celebrated “American Woman: Fashioning A National Identity.”

She added Christian Louboutin ‘Madame Butterfly’ booties, dazzling jewels and a black clutch to her look.

Chanel Iman wore the same dress to the 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show After Party in New York City.

The skirt looks really creased and I’m not feeling her shoe choice.

Super/Uber model Iman wore the same dress on ‘The Fashion Show’ this week, which is shown on Bravo TV.

She wore her dress as the designer intended with a black waistband.

I’m having trouble deciding between Hilary and the ‘real’ Iman.

The ‘real’ Iman wins as I prefer a clear neckline with an asymmetrical dress and I love the waistband with dress.

2010 Tribeca Ball – Hilary Rhoda In Rachel Roy

Hilary Rhoda wore an interesting mix of colours as she walked the red carpet at the “2010 Tribeca Ball” in New York last night.

She arrived wearing a navy strapless Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2010 ensemble with a gathered detail on the skirt and a textured panels on the bustier.

Hilary has worn Rachel Roy on many occasions, so it’s not a surprise to see her continue to support the talented designer.

I love the yellow sandals and white clutch she wore with this dress to stop the look from being boring.

If I would’ve changed one thing, I would lose the necklace.

Who Wore Thakoon Better? Hilary Rhoda or Iman

Hilary Rhoda first wore this Thakoon Fall 2009 asymetrical mini dress back in May of 2009 to “The Model As Muse: Embodying Faashion” Costume Institiute Gala at the Metropolitan Musuem of Art in New York.

Hilary has chosen to wear this dress in a light gold colour, which I love.

I also love how she has hardened this look by wearing a heavy necklace and peep toe ankle boots.

The ever beautiful Iman then wore this dress in black in October 2009 to the “Keep A Child Alive” Black Ball in New York.

I think that this might rock the style boat a bit but I’m just not loving Iman in this dress.

Her hair and make up is flawless as usual but the tights and plain black pumps put me off.

I’m not sure how many of you will agree but, for me, Hilary wins this one hands down.

What do you think?

10th Annual New Yorkers For Children Fall Gala

Selita Ebanks, Vice Chair of the New Yorkers for Children Gala looked amazing wearing a J. Mendel Spring 2010 citron draped gown.

I tend to associate Victoria’s Secret models with bod-con mini dress, but Selita temporarily blows that stereotype out of the water.

The model wore Slane & Slane jewelry and carried a Nancy Gonzalez clutch to complete her BDOTW worthy look.

It’s been a while since we have seen Joy Bryant on the red carpet, but during her time-out one this hasn’t changed.

Her love for Missoni.

At this event she wore a leaf print Missoni Fall 2009 stone silk dress with bold multi-coloured leaf print.

This is the perfect transitional look for fall.

Hilary Rhoda sparkled wearing a sterling silver ombre paillette halter Naeem Khan Spring 2009 dress with very deep plunge.

Matching strappy sandals and clutch complete this sexy look.

I wasn’t at all crazy about this Cavlin Klein Resort 2010 blue/grey off-the-shoulder dress when I saw it on the runway, but Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann injects a bit of personality and body into the dress to make it much more appealing.

Alina Cho wears a purple Oscar de la Renta pleated duchess satin gown which was my favourite from the Fall 2009 collection.

I was going to say I prefer the runway belt, but she is wearing the runway belt. The lighting makes them appear different.

Ines Rivero wears the same zebra print Naeem Khan Resort 2009 gown which Eva Longoria wore to Roselyn Sanchez wedding.

Mary J Blige wore a rose strapless crepe Gucci gown with bow detailing on the hip.

I love this colour on her, but as always the tattoos turn me off.

Her look was paired with a black python Gucci clutch.

Tinsley Mortimer is wearing my favourite colour of at the moment – electric blue.

Her dress was paired with a pair of grey heels.

I wonder if they will become her new favourites.

“The September Issue” New York Premiere

US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour walked the red carpet last night as the host of “The September Issue” New York premiere.

The R.J. Cutler documentary chronicles the making of the fashion bible’s 2007 September edition, which remains its biggest issue to date.

After seeing the Prada Resort 2010 collection, I was intrigued to see which piece – if any – Anna would pick from this collection.

Anna has never been scared of bold prints, so it wasn’t a surprise that she picked this interesting piece which was modified to cover her shoulders.

Beige kitten heels, a dazzling necklace and trademark bob completed the look.

Sienna Miller – the cover star of the September 2007 issue this documentary chronicles – showed off how lengthy her toned legs are wearing a blue sky Thakoon Resort 2010 strapless mini dress.

I love the texture of this dress which is cleverly draped, twisted and gathered to create volume.

A silver Bottega Ventea clutch, large chandelier earrings and gold Jimmy Choo heels complete this look.

J’Adore.

Renee Zellweger’s shortened Carolina Herrera Resort 2010 orange draped brocade dress was the perfect choice to show off her best feature – her legs.

Some of you expressed how you’re a tad bored of the Renee/Herrera collabo, but I really love how each piece is tailor-made or modified to suit Renee’s style.

If it was the same silhouette or same colour I would be bored too, but the two of them give us something new every time.

Sexy strappy heels and her trademark pout complete the look.

I will forever love Carey Mulligan for wearing my favourite dress from the Thakoon Resort 2010 collection.

I adore this colourful dress, which drapes better on the runway.  It’s like opening a packet of Starburst.

Actress Zoe Kazan combined two pieces from the Jason Wu Resort 2010 collection to create her own casual look.

I don’t like the uninspired heavy black heels with this summery look.  The runway heels to the left would have been a better choice.

You may remember Emma Watson wore this same Jason Wu Resort look when traveling between shows whilst promoting “Harry Potter”.

Shortening seems to be the new black, as Hilary Rhoda like Renee, shorten her Rachel Roy Resort 2009 dress.

Her floral dress was pair with Manolo Blahhnik white and black stitched heels.

Designers Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera arrived together.

He wore a beige suit, whilst she looked radiant wearing an orange and white floral skirt from her Resort 2010 collection, with a crisp white shirt which is very much her trademark look.

Designer Tory Burch decided against wearing a piece from her own collection opting for this gorgeous purple Narciso Rodriguez silk dress from the 2009 Pre-Fall collection.

The cap sleeve dress has a wide self-tie belt that wraps around dress, which can create Rodriguez’ signature criss cross detail.

I love the dress and the strappy heels, but I really dislike her pink feathery bag.  What a way to ruin a look.

Designer Cynthia Rowley opted for a vibrant blue shortened dress from her Fall 2009 collection.

She looked stunning wearing her dress with a blue and black embroidered belt, and Elizabeth & James elastic wedge sandals.

Georgina Chapman opted for a silver long sleeved tunic dress with sprinkles of gold embellishments, which shimmered as she walked the red carpet.

Her dress had a matching silver roped tied the waist.  Her look was complete with grey Christian Louboutin kitten heels and a matching clutch.

Vera Wang opted for a simple grey tank which she punched up with a trademark bejeweled necklace.

I particularly love her Resort 2010 asymmetrical layered skirt, which she wore with Prada Spring 2009 snake-skin heels.

Alexa Chung dress has the floaty ethereal feel of the Calvin Klein Resort 2010 collection, which I’ll guess is actually a vintage dress.

It appears Alexa still hasn’t washed her hair from the last time she stepped onto the red carpet for the “Inglourious Basterds” New York Screening earlier this week.

TRESemme and some lukewarm water. Don’t be afraid to introduce them to your hair Miss Chung.

Bee Shaffer’s lilac belted dress is divine, both in colour and style.

It shows off her legs and accentuates her curvy figure.

Designer Donna Karan and singer Cassie arrived wearing similar plunging black jumpsuits.

Donna opted for gladiator flats with her look, whilst Cassie wore platform boots.

“The September Issue” hits theaters in New York on August 28, and select cities on September 11.
