Who Wore Karen Zambos Vintage Couture? Katharine McPhee or Garcelle Beauvais


Katharine McPhee first wore this emerald green Karen Zambos Vintage Couture Baretta dress to the 15th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute back in October.

The singer accessorized with gold earrings, a matching bracelet and white gold strappy sandals.

Garcelle Beauvais wore the same dress last month, when she attended InStyle’s Diamond Show.

She glammed up her dress by adding gold jewelry, including a thin gold belt with matching gold t-bar heels, and a leopard print clutch.

Both ladies look great in the dress. Katharine’s dress fits slightly better, but I love Garcelle’s accessories, so she wins for me.


This silk crepe dress with cowl neckline, and a shirt-tail hem is available to purchase from Shopbop.com for $328.

New York Week Front Row

Lela Rose

Kellie Pickler started off very slow this Fashion Week, but she has now got into her stride and is looking fabulous.

Her best look of the week so far, came at the Lela Rose show, were she wore a taffeta teal Lela Rose Spring 2009 dress.

The detail on the bodice is exquisite.

Jennifer Love Hewitt paired a gold Lela Rose neckline embellished dress, with a navy cardi.

Her cute look was completed with a pair of nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Brittany Snow looked cute in her Lela Rose Spring 2009 ensemble. I love the detail on the skirt, and the collar on the haltered top.

Diane Von Furstenberg

Heidi Klum’s multi-coloured striped shimmering Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2009 dress, which she paired with a large striped belt was gorgeous, but I am so tired of YSL Trib Two’s worn with everything.

Zoe Saldana opted for a white Diane von Furstenberg Pre-Fall 2009 dress with a watercolour floral print. Her silver heels were outstanding.

I would have expected a brighter colour from Katharine McPhee, but she opted for a black and white Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2009 tunic dress.

Donna Karan

Mary Alice Stephenson wore a LBD, but made it more interesting with a large statement necklace, a snake skin clutch and a fur collared coat.

Molly Sims looked stunning wearing a black one-shoulder Donna Karan dress with a gold statement necklace and a black Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

Preen

Roisin Murphy wore a sexy Preen Spring 2009 LBD, with a funky ‘do, then she pores cold water over the whole look by wearing a cardigan.

Reem Acra

Sophia Bush wore a rich two-toned purple Reem Acra dress, from the Fall 2008 collection, which were worn with YSL Trib Two’s.

Lily Collins opted for a lace frock, with gold heels.

Carlos Miele Fall 2009



Carlos Miele’s Spring 2009 collection saw me seated behind Suzy Menkes of the International Herald Tribune, and directly opposite French Vogue editor, Carine Roitfeld.

With such high profile fashion figures in the room, I anticipated a great show, and I wasn’t let down.

The show started with Max Decastro, playing guitar on the runway. At many points during the show, I was worried he might collide with the models, but this didn’t happen.

With the tunes playing in the background, the show was very energetic and upbeat.

There was lots of colour and sleek silhouettes. Reds, taupes, blacks and lime greens were presented. Prints also featured heavily, which added another dimension to the collection.

Boleros were featured with gowns, in knit, fur, and pleated chiffon.

I loved the gowns, but I was equally blown away with the cocktail dresses. My favourite was a ruched taupe mini dress with on long sleeve, and on that shoulder was a gorgeous sparkly cluster of embellishments.

The collection had amazing workmanship, and I can see many of the gowns presented ending up on the red carpet. I particularly loved the black gown, with the embellished detail on the hip.


Here are some of my better pictures.


Katharine McPhee seemed to be very interested in the collection. She arrived at the show wearing a nude high-collared corduroy dress, under a black blazer and a black belt to nip in her waist.

I like the shoes and the blazer. The Spring 2009 dress? not so much on her. It looked better on the runway.
