Giorgio Armani – One Night Only NYC

Giorgio Armani - One Night Only NYC

Stylishly clad stars collided at Giorgio Armani – One Night Only New York, held yesterday at SuperPier in New York City, with many, of course, trotting out mainly monochromatic looks from the event’s namesake designer.

Renee Zellweger: The actress skipped the skirt and suited up in a black, bow-accented blazer and loose trousers. Her minimal styling and barely-there makeup contributed to the more mannish aesthetic.

Hilary Swank: Also wearing the pants to the party, Hilary took a more dramatic approach with her slim-line pair worn with a glittery, nipped-in blazer top, further vamping up the look with strappy sandals, a smokey eye and loose waves.

Naomi Watts: Playing with proportion, the ‘Diana’ actress pulled off a silken, charcoal-grey top with billowy sleeves paired with a loose, floor-scraping black skirt. There was a lot of fabric to be had here, but there was still an effortless elegance with her swept-back locks and gemstone Monique Péan earrings.

God’s Love We Deliver 2013 Golden Heart Awards

God's Love We Deliver 2013 Golden Heart Awards

The God’s Love We Deliver 2013 Golden Heart Awards Celebration was held at Spring Studios in New York City, where the majority of the guests wore Michael Kors.

Hilary Swank: The actress, who is always on hand to support Michael Kors, wore a bright-pink Michael Kors embroidered lace dress styled with silver-python sandals and a silver clutch from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection, complemented with silver jewels.

Jennifer Hudson: While her black Michael Kors Resort 2014 gown certainly added glamour to the event, I can’t say I am a fan of the suntan lace inserts. I would’ve preferred cut-outs to the lace. Her hair and makeup are perfect, however.

Julianna Margulies: The actress went left when everyone else went right, opting for a sleek white tuxedo with black trims from the Resort 2014 collection styled with black Michael Kors sandals, dazzling chandelier earrings and a chic topknot. She was by far my favourite at this event.

Hilary Swank In Gucci - amfAR Inspiration Gala

Hilary Swank attended the amfAR Inspiration Gala during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday in Toronto, Canada.

The actress went from summery at the Michael Kors event last week to a more Fall-like offering, turning to Gucci for this olive-green frock with a sexy black-lace long-sleeved keyhole overlay from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

Gucci patent-leather T-strap pumps accented with a knotted bow detail and a black Gucci ‘Broadway’ clutch with a plexiglass and Swarovski jewel detail completed her look.

2013 Couture Council Artistry of Fashion Award Luncheon honoring Michael Kors

2013 Couture Council Fashion Visionary Awards

The 2013 Couture Council Artistry of Fashion Award luncheon, hosted by The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology and honoring Michael Kors, brought out a stylish bunch of Michael Kors-clad event-goers to the David H. Koch Theater at New York City’s Lincoln Center on Wednesday.

Hilary Swank: The actress stood out in a flashy, aqua leopard-print fit-and-flare dress and black python sandals, both from the Michael Kors Resort 2014 collection. A black elongated, reptilian-like clutch from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection completed the animal instinct.

Michael Kors: Surrounded by some of his leading fashion ladies, the designer was casual-cool in a basic, all-black look, with a blazer, T-shirt and trousers. His signature shades were present and accounted for, naturally.

Anna Wintour: The ‘Vogue’ editrix kept up chic appearances and paid homage to the guest of honor in a custom Michael Kors micro-print frock, styled with sunnies and her favourite Manolo Blahnik sandals.

Hilary Swank In Giambattista Valli Couture – Life Ball 2013

Hilary Swank in Giambattista Valli Couture - Life Ball 2013

Hilary Swank navigated the 2013 Life Ball’s signature magenta carpet this past weekend at City Hall in Vienna, Austria.

For the exuberant occasion, which raises funds for HIV and AIDS causes, the actress put on her party best in top-to-toe Giambattista Valli.

Her Spring 2013 Couture silvery-grey cocktail dress was veiled in black zebra-stripe tulle overlay, giving it a slightly wild nature. The short frock was fun enough, although I believe it got a boost from the glittery pomp and pageantry that was carrying on in the background.

Longtime Giambattista Valli collaborator, jeweler Luigi Scialanga is the master responsible for gilding this look with a cinching, twisting belt of bronze feathers.

Lattice work ankle-strap heels were one step better than plain black pumps. But a more inspired metallic shoe would have provided a final flourish of gold leaf opulence.

Natural waves and neutral makeup completed the moment. Was anyone else craving a bolder lip or a strong eye for Hilary? It would have fit right in at this over-the-top occasion.
