2015 Met Gala Roundup

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

A flurry of even more bold names descended on red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), where their colourful variety of looks only contributed to this year’s fashion extravaganza.

Anna Wintour
: As the gala co-host, the ‘Vogue’ editor-in-chief dressed thematically (for her, anyway) in a Chanel Spring 2015 Couture gown featuring dimensional, all-over poppy embroidery, which had been lengthened from the runway’s original shorter version. She should have maintained her signature cap sleeve, as the flower petal statement shoulders translated as a bit cumbersome, despite their inherent artistry.

Bee Shaffer: Like her mother, Bee also found inspiration in flowers, opting for a mahogany blossom gown by Alexander McQueen. I much preferred this look to Anna’s, especially with the enchantment of the beautifully embroidered Chinese cranes that alighted down the back of the dress.

Ivanka Trump In Zac Posen – 2015 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Ivanka Trump In Zac Posen - 2015 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Ivanka Trump was one of the many A-Listers to attend the 101st annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner (lovingly referred to as #NerdProm) last night (April 25) at the Washington Hilton in Washington, DC.

For the grand affair, Ivanka chose a classic silhouette and color with a stunning Zac Posen gown from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2015 collection. The sweetheart neckline and flounced mermaid skirt (complete with a train in the back) are fun and offer an editorial view, while diamond De Beers jewels and a red box clutch continue the glamourous statement.

I love this bold look on Ivanka. The mogul often uses restraint in her fashion choices, but I love that she went with such a bold color, while keeping things classic with a modern twist.

Voluminous curls and a matte red lip are perfect finish to the lovely look.

Vanity Fair Party 2015 Tribeca Film Festival Party

Vanity Fair Party 2015 Tribeca Film Festival Party

A crush of lovelies attended the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival’s ‘Vanity Fair’ party at the State Supreme Courthouse in New York City on Tuesday (April 14). Here, a roundup of their looks.

Ivanka Trump: Adding a sexy spin to her sophisticated style, Ivanka wore a David Koma Spring 2015 asymmetrical frock with side cutouts. Despite the statement dress, I cannot direct my gaze away from that massive silver clutch, which was much too big for this otherwise sleek, sultry look.

Lindsay Ellingson: The model gave this Valentino Fall 2013 dress with china-blue embroidery its fourth appearance, as it has previously been worn by Lea Seydoux, Charlotte Ronson, and Angelababy. Yet she wears it so well, I still cannot help but be charmed by her effortless interpretation of the precious-chic dress, styled with matching off-white pumps, a ponytail and red lip.

Joan Smalls: Oozing seductive appeal, the model channeled her inner femme fatale in a leather-look, body-con House of CB dress, sliced through with peekaboo cutouts. A rouge lip and long straight locks completed the effect.

Ivanka Trump In J. Mendel – 2012 Clarins Million Meals Concert For FEED

Ivanka Trump attended The Clarins Million Meals Concert Benefiting FEED Foundation at Alice Tully Hall in New York City yesterday evening.

The socialite wore a J. Mendel Spring 2012 dress.

I love everything about this dress from the colour-blocking to the part-sequins embellished and part-printed silk panels.

It’s colourful, summery and perfect for someone like Ivanka who appears to be trying to shake up her red-carpet looks of late.

With carefree naturally wavy tresses, Ivanka completed her look with gold jewels, a gold clutch and teal-blue sandals.

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.
