Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates Icons By Carine Roitfeld Carpet Roundup

Harper's BAZAAR Celebrates Icons By Carine Roitfeld Carpet Roundup

The stars came out for the Harper’s Bazaar Celebrates Icons by Carine Roitfeld event held at The Plaza Hotel in New York City on September 5.

Lily Aldridge: Wearing a red velvet pantsuit from Emilio Pucci’s Fall 2014 collection with an orange, v-neck blouse, Lily shows us mortals how models do fashion. The mix of textures and bright color-blocking are oh-so-chic, while the simple gold accessories and Lily’s barely there makeup and slightly tousled hair complete the ‘models-do-it-better’ effect.

Crystal Renn: Taking a very different approach to the event, Crystal Renn is all about the drama in a gray satin mermaid-shaped Zac Posen gown with matching cape and striking Lorraine Schwartz jewels. To complete the high-fashion, high-drama look, Crystal’s bold brows, deep plum lips and pinned back retro-inspired hair are a stark contrast with her lack of eye makeup.

Karolina Kurkova In Azzedine Alaia – 20th Anniversary Of Giuseppe Zanotti Design

Karolina Kurkova In Azzedine Alaia - Giuseppe Zanotti Ibiza Store Opening

Karolina Kurkova attended the 20th anniversary of Giuseppe Zanotti Design in Ibiza, Spain on Friday (July 11).

Considering the season and her location, her Azzedine Alaïa figure-flattering knitted dress with a fitted bodice and loose-fitting skater skirt does seem like a very odd choice.

However, it does provide the perfect backdrop for her accessories to shine – this was all about the Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and clutch, after all.

Accenting her look with a black leather belt with gold hardware, she completed her look with a slicked-back ‘do and gold hooped earrings.

Karolina Kurkova In Honor – amfAR Inspiration Gala New York 2014

Karolina Kurkova In Honor - amfAR Inspiration Gala New York 2014

Karolina Kurkova attended the amfAR Inspiration Gala New York 2014 held at The Plaza Hotel on Tuesday (June 10) in New York City.

Following her rare fashion fail at the Cannes amfAR Gala, I am glad to see her back on top form wearing a delicate white silk gown with a sheer yoke and sleeves accented with floral appliqués and a black ribbon detail from Honor’s Resort 2015 collection.

Keeping the look fresh and simple, she opted for minimalist styling, slicking her hair back and applying just a hint of pink to her lips.

I am doing all I can to ignore the black pointy pumps peeking out under her gown.

amfAR Cinema Against Aids Gala Red Carpet Roundup

amfAR Cinema Against Aids Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of some of the other attendees at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala held at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France this evening (May 22).

Toni Garrn: The model wore an icy silk skirt-and-top combo by Italian brand Redemption Choppers. The liquid-silk top is decorated with metallic needles on the side in an attempt to add an edge to the lingerie-inspired look. Toni styled this to perfection.

Karolína Kurková: Not a red carpet event has gone by where I haven’t loved what the model has worn; sadly, that came to a crashing halt today. Such an uninspiring, unflattering Dior look for a gala – or any – event.

Chanel Iman: The model opted for yet another Reem Acra gown, selecting a gold-draped look which she styled with a gold Jimmy Choo clutch.

Chanel & Vanity Fair France Dinner Party

Chanel & Vanity Fair France Dinner Party
With the fashionable force of celebrities in town for the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival in France, no better time for another starry party. Chanel and ‘Vanity Fair’ took the opportunity to fete the occasion on Tuesday (May 20) with a dinner at the beachfront restaurant, Tetou, where a bevy of Chanel-clad beauties were on the scene.

Lily Allen: The British singer-songwriter was dressed in a blue tweed frock with glittery embroidery from the Chanel Spring 2012 Couture collection, which she paired with (not pictured) gunmetal metallic pumps. The classic silhouette received a punchy accent via the embellished cold-shoulder sleeves and patchwork hemline. While her blue pendant earrings may have been unnecessary given the glitz of the dress, the yellow Chanel clutch was definitely a questionable blot on this look.

Jessica Chastain: Whereas Lily went for shine, Jessica kept her look on a more subtle level, donning a Chanel Resort 2014 white tweed dress with pockets. From her flame-red locks to her barely-there makeup and natural nails, this was the embodiment of au naturel styling. We can’t see if her shoes added a spark, but were you bored, or did you appreciate her breezy, effortless beauty?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Blake Lively In Gucci Premiere, Karolina Kurkova In Marchesa, Benedict Cumberbatch In Ralph Lauren & Douglas Booth In Burberry

BD1 12 May

There was just no separating Blake Lively and Karolina Kurkova this week.

Both taking 34% of your votes, they were neck and neck all weekend.

Blake swept you off your feet with her dazzling return to the red carpet in Gucci Premiere, while Karolina’s Marchesa sculpted strapless satin-organza gown was not only a thing of beauty but was also one of the very few looks which lived up to the theme. This was my favourite too.
