The CW Network's New York 2013 Upfront Presentation

A bevy of bright young things made quite an entrance at The CW Network’s New York 2013 Upfront Presentation, hosted at The London Hotel yesterday in New York City. Among the hot list, there are starlets from ‘The Carrie Diaries’ to ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and every TV show in between—and they certainly didn’t keep their sartorial sass under lock and key.

Jaime King: The ‘Hart of Dixie’ star flaunted a bold swish of brushstrokes (and her baby bump) in a Peter Pilotto Fall 2013 satin frock, worn with a Rachel Zoe statement cuff and thick strappy Etro shoes. With its abstract expressionist mood, this was nearly like a Mark Rothko painting put onto a dress. Casual blonde waves and a sweep of sky-blue eye liner completed the artistic look.

Aimee Teegarden: The ‘Star-Crossed’ actress must have gotten the art memo, too, as her romper was a study in watercolour prints. The rush of swirling hues was exhilarating; so too was the pop of neon-blue from the pumps and her coral lippie. I just wish her ‘do had carried the same exuberance, as it seemed to fall flat.

Nina Dobrev: Our favourite TV vamp was obviously still channeling a touch of punk attitude from last week’s Met Gala. The newly single star turned up the volume in a blue body-con dress by Versace that featured a punch of black leather, grommets and metal. Shiny platinum Rupert Sanderson ‘Elba’ heels added a final flourish.

AnnaSophia Robb: The young Carrie Bradshaw gave us a peek (literally) of her big-city style with this Katie Ermilio design that featured no fewer than three of the hottest trends of late: stripes, mismatched patterns and midriff cutouts. With so much happening in her dress, she kept the rest of the styling straightforward with minimal accessories, including a pair of Sorellina butterfly earrings and metallic Casadei pumps. Side-swept pin curls sent this look straight to the ’50s while lavender eye shadow added a youthful, fun edge.

With such a variety of styles, who was your top-dressed starlet of the four?

JW Anderson for Versus by Versace Collection Launch Party

Donatella Versace hosted an event at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City on Wednesday evening to celebrate the launch of the JW Anderson for Versus by Versace collection.

Heidi Klum: The ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge wore a lace-accented LBD from the Versace Spring 2013 collection with black pumps. My issue is not the revealing nature of her dress or her pumps, but her ghostly makeup.

Taylor Momsen: Perhaps Heidi was taking makeup tips from Taylor Momsen, who took to the red carpet sporting a paler complexion than usual with her trademark racoon eyes. I haven’t been a fan of Taylor’s style since she morphed into her ‘Gossip Girl’ character Jenny, but I have to say I love this harlequin Versace suit. Sometimes she takes the grunge too far, but this more polished look I can get on board with.

Hayden Panettiere: With most going for all-black, hard-edged looks, Hayden opted for a beige-coloured flirty frock from the Versace Spring 2013 collection, which she styled with nude pumps and a clutch which matched her dress.

Jaimie King In Prabal Gurung - Vogue and MAC Cosmetics Dinner Party

Jaime joined Diane Kruger and Zoe Saldana for the Vogue and MAC Cosmetics dinner hosted by Lisa Love and John Demsey in honour of Prabal Gurung, which was held at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California on Monday.

The actress wore one of Prabal Gurung’s Fall 2013 pieces which gives us a sexy spin on military-style chic dressing.

She wore a navy dolman sleeve dress with a draped waistline featuring epaulettes with Swarovski detailing.

Toning down the military elements, Jaime opted not to wear the chain accented leather belt, but did wear the Casadei for Prabal Gurung buckle ankle boots.

An olive-green croc clutch, barely there makeup and a simple bun completed her look.

JaimeKingTopShop

Instead of opting for a big-name designer, Jamie King chose Topshop to produce her look for the Met Gala in New York City on Monday evening.

Donning a sleek suit with a lace turtleneck underneath, the ‘Hart of Dixie’ star struck the perfect balance of punk, the event’s theme, and sexy.

To evoke the classic punk ‘do of messy-hair-covering-eyes, Jamie flawlessly executed a less messy iteration with a deep side part and straight strands.

The actress topped her style with a spikey gold crown, dramatic diamond dagger earrings, and simple makeup with a strong brow.

All in all, it was everything punk and more.

Jaime King In Peter Som - Rembrandt Hollywood Party Prep Event

Jaime King walked the red carpet at the Rembrandt Hollywood Party Prep event at the W Hotel in Hollywood on Wednesday.

The ‘Hart of Dixie’ star wore a look from Peter Som Spring 2013.

Known as a successful style chameleon, Jaime normally strays from overly ladylike styles but she hit the sartorial jackpot with the pale blue bustier bodice and tiered tweed-like pencil skirt.

The actress went full-out girly and accessorized the look with pointed toe Christian Louboutin pumps with bow details, Graziela earrings, and Melinda Maria pyramid bangles and rings.

Jaime’s neutral beauty choice works well with the retro style, but I can’t help but wonder if a classic red lip would have completed the look better.
