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.

#DKNY25 Birthday Bash

DKNY25-Birthday-Bash2

Haute—and just plain hot—topics abounded at the lively #DKNY Birthday Bash on Monday, where fashionable femmes descended on 23 Wall Street in New York City. Skin was in, and so was sultry appeal, as PYTs flashed their DKNY best—and posed with designer Donna Karan and her iconic taxicab cake.

Emmy Rossum: Sizzling in gold, the actress illuminated the scene with a Midas touch like no other. With the glint of a metallic clutch, black Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps and a slicked-back ’do, Emmy was dripping in glamour.

Rita Ora: With her cool edge firmly in place, the songstress set off her paisley-print playsuit with a white jersey blazer, emblazoned with the number ‘25’ on the back. An embellished baseball hat capped off the sporty effect, whilst studded black Christian Louboutin ‘Artifice’ heels put the vamp in this game-changing outfit. Rita’s short platinum crop, along with lavender eye shadow and a cherry-red lip, added even more dynamic impact.

Hailee Steinfeld: The young starlet took a safer approach in a white, grey and black colour-block T-shirt and flared organza skirt. Her long wavy locks, smokey-rust eye makeup and black clunky shoes all registered as a bit lacklustre, when she could have had so much more fun.

Joan Smalls In Viktor & Rolf – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Joan Smalls In Viktor & Rolf - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Before strutting down the runway at New York Fashion Week next month, Joan Smalls took to the red carpet at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday evening.

The supermodel wore a Viktor & Rolf Fall 2013 white leather long-sleeved mini dress with a drop waist and ruffled hemline showing off those enviable legs.

Her accessories gave the sweet white frock an edge, with black leather strappy Casadei knee-high boots with gold buckles, plus a chunky gold chain, with a deep-berry lip colour completing the look.

Joan Smalls In Helmut Lang & Altuzarra – ‘Lovelace’ New York Premiere

Joan Smalls In Helmut Lang & Altuzarra - 'Lovelace' New York Premiere

Like Naya Rivera, Joan Smalls was taking the crop-top trend to the next level yesterday evening while attending the New York screening of ‘Lovelace’.

The stunning model must have had jaws dropping in her wake as she wore a black Helmut Lang asymmetrical bra top with a colourful Altuzarra pali-print high-waisted skirt styled with a black Givenchy envelope clutch and Tom Ford triple-buckle sandals.

A perfect advert for all those brands if I ever saw one.

Soft curls and neutral makeup completed her look.

I am going to stick both this and the picture of Naya by my computer, so the next time I want to blow off a Bikram Yoga class, this will give me inspiration.

Most of you said Naya’s look was trashy, so what do you think about this look?

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 @ amfAR’s 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS

Models @ amfar 1

Here is a round up of all the models who took to the red carpet on Thursday evening for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday evening before taking to the runway for the fashion show.

Karolina Kurkova: Cavalli created an uber hot black cut-out gown for the sensational Kurkova. This woman couldn’t look bad if she tried. Aside from the serpent bracelet, she let the gown do all the talking…and it’s sayin’ “don’t I look hot?”

Joan Smalls: The gorgeous model worked a Givenchy Fall 2013 floral sequin sheer gown with a sheer sweater with leather appliqués. I had expected Ciara to have worn one of these looks by now. I didn’t have high hopes for this portion of the collection, but it does translate rather nicely off the runway. I am intrigued to see the look sans sweater.

Karlie Kloss: Is she just not trying anymore? The model wore a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2013 look which is uber chic, but just not enough for a gala event. She could’ve worn anything she wanted, so I wonder why she chose to wear this. Maybe she just wanted to be less obvious like many of her fellow models at this event.
