2014 Young Friends Of ACRIA Summer Soiree

The 2014 Young Friends Of ACRIA Summer Soiree, held at Highline Stages on Wednesday (June 11) in New York City, turned into something of a Jason Wu mini fashion show, with several of the attendees wearing pieces from his Spring, Fall and Pre-Fall 2014 collections.

Jaime King: Wearing her second Jason Wu Fall 2014 look in so many days, the actress wore a taupe two-piece featuring a high-neckline sweater with a silk draped calf-length skirt, to which she attempted to add a touch of summer via the white pumps. While this is a great look, I think Jaime needed to re-read the invite, as it was entitled ‘summer’ soiree. Jennifer Fisher jewelry completed her look.

Hilary Rhoda: Always the picture of perfection, the model wore a shimmering Jason Wu Spring 2014 bias-cut white calf-length frock, styled to perfection with silver Jimmy Choo accessories including a ‘Candy’ clutch and the celebrity favourite ‘Lance’ sandals, recently upstaged by the Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals.

Adriana Lima: The model opted for a super-slinky gown from Jason Wu’s Spring 2014 collection. The bias-cut red-carpet-worthy piece enriched with a myriad of shimmering beads also featured a sexy thigh-high slit. Styled with black sandals and Jennifer Fisher jewelry, she completed her look with a slicked-back ponytail and kohl-rimmed eyes.

Karen Elson: Asymmetrical florals and polka dots were favoured by the model, who donned a Jason Wu dress from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection with ruffles and a draped shoulder.

CFDA 1

Amid the crush of starlets and designers at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 2), the models definitely had their moment, too. They strutted out a range of dazzling, directional and sometimes daring looks at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

Joan Smalls: Putting her statuesque height to good use, Joan worked her midnight-navy Prabal Gurung draped, cutout gown to sexy effect also flaunting an Angelina leg through the thigh-high slit. She styled the look with metallic ankle-tie sandals and a mod fringe bang, but the gold choker necklace was unnecessary here.

Alessandra Ambrosio
: The Victoria’s Secret cat-walker took a red-hot approach in a Nonoo strapless gown featuring a structured bodice with a crossover ribbon tie at the back. She accessorized with Jennifer Fisher jewels, including a sharp, diamond-pointed pair of earrings.

‘Girls’ Season Three Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

There were many more ladies who took to the red carpet joining Anna Wintour, Zosia Mamet, Allison Williams and Lena Dunham on the red carpet for the season three premiere of ‘Girls’ held at Jazz at Lincoln Center on Monday (January 6) in New York City.

Jemima Kirke: The actress who plays Jessa on the hit HBO show wore a one-of-a-kind vintage Geminola dress. There’s not a lot to like here. The dress is more like a negligee and the styling is a bit haphazard, to put it as kindly as I can.

Karen Elson: The model wore a Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2014 black crepe floral-caviar-beaded slip dress styled with black Mary Janes and a watermelon-pink lip colour. The shoes are meh, but I do like the dress; I wish she’d vamped up the look more.

Karlie Kloss: The model wore a Calvin Klein ivory georgette sleeveless zip-front belted dress from the Resort 2014 collection. The overall fit is too loose for my liking, especially in the upper regions of the look. I can’t say I’m particularly enamoured with the styling or the makeup.

It’s a triple meh from me.

Anna Dello Russo

Leave it to drama kings Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana to top off the recent haute couture shows with an elaborate flourish. The design duo orchestrated ‘Ballo in Maschera,’ an extravagant Venetian masquerade ball held in the halls of the historic Palazzo Pisani Moretta along the Grand Canal last Saturday. A collection of brilliantly costumed guests, each having received a mask created by the designers, arrived by gondola or boat to celebrate the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Fall Winter 2013/14 presented in Venice, Italy.

Anna Dello Russo: ‘Understated’ is not in this ‘Vogue’ Japan editor’s vocabulary, so it’s only natural that she put the costume in this costume party with a spirited ship fascinator atop her expansive wig. Flaunting a period costume with layers and layers of ruffles and piles of frou, ADR was definitely the fashion queen of the evening.

The London 2012 Closing Ceremony, which took place at the Olympic Stadium yesterday evening, was not only about British culture and music; it was also about fashion.

A selection of our finest and most iconic supermodels took to the stage showcasing British Fashion to its largest-ever global audience.

They were all dressed in pure gold to celebrate Team GB’s 29-gold-medals haul.

From left to right we have Lily Cole wearing an Erdem gold embroidered and lace cocktail dress with gold Charlotte Olympia ankle-strap pumps.

Stella Tennant rocked a Christopher Kane metal mesh and Swarovski crystal pant suit with a rockstar spiked hairdo. One of my favourites of the night.

Karen Elson was more serene wearing a Burberry gold-lace evening dress with a slit which revealed her Jimmy Choo gold ‘Private’ sandals. Read more…

The fashion world’s top models flocked to the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City on Monday evening.

Elettra Wiedemann: The model puts her best foot forward wearing a gorgeous burgundy Rachel Roy crepe twist drape dress with cut-out details. She accessorized with a Kotur for Rachel Roy multi-graphic tweed clutch, Lulu Frost jewelry and Rachel Roy ‘Farrah’ leather architectural open toe metal tri-colour sandals. I want to own every piece of this look. She is my favourite on this page.

Dree Hemingway: Her Creatures of The Wind black and gray silk abstract jacquard empire-waist dress teamed with a cropped jacket is also one of my faves. I love that she sticks to her laidback style here. We all know she can go glam when needs be. I just love her Tabitha Simmons for Creatures of The Wind silver boots.

Crystal Renn: I would’ve expected a gown from the striking model, but she opted for a Zac Posen cocktail dress. The Fall 2012 Kiko print lame cocktail dress was styled with black strappy sandals, bright green earrings and silver bracelets.
