Summer Party On The Highline, Presented By Coach

Summer Party On The Highline, Presented By Coach

Last night, a bevy of ‘it-list’ beauties gathered for a carnival-themed Summer Party, presented by Coach, on New York City’s High Line. Here, some of the looks that weren’t all as light and luscious as I was anticipating.

Katie Holmes: The actress-cum-designer kept it cool in a white one-shoulder Chloé Resort 2013 dress, accented with a mauve Coach ‘Madison’ gathered twist clutch, brown Azzedine Alaïa gladiator sandals and black-lacquered nails. The silhouette could have been more flattering, as I don’t love what the gathered dropped waist is doing to her figure at this angle.

Naomi Watts: Pretty in light pink, Naomi wore a loose, button-down See by Chloé shirtdress with white Bruno Magli sandals. Her metallic-accented, leopard-print sunnies added some of the pop I was originally seeking. A Coach Poppy Mirror metallic flight bag completed her look.

Connie Britton: The ‘Nashville’ star stood out in a breezy, aqua-blue high-low dress, grounded with a pair of chocolate-brown platform sandals. She definitely wins the best hair award of the group, as it’s hard to argue with her effortless auburn waves.

Anna Kendrick: Seemingly neither ready for summer or for a festive party, the actress took a darker approach, which looked hot—literally. Black on top of black came with her skinny jeans, a leather vest, and a sheer, geometrically printed Joe’s blouse. She carried a chain-strap Coach Legacy flight bag . My feet hurt just a little seeing those heels at an event like this.

Who Wore Chloé Better…Katie Holmes, Marion Cotillard or Emma Stone?

Who Wore Chloe Better Katie Holmes, Marion Cotillard or Emma Stone

Back in January, Katie Holmes took to the red carpet for the Manhattan Theater Club’s ‘The Other Place’ Broadway opening night performance in New York City.

She topped off her ivory-and-black look with a teal blazer from the Chloé Resort 2013 collection which features notched lapels and three-quarter-length sleeves.

Marion Cotillard wore the same blazer last month while attending the Maud Fontenoy Foundation Annual Gala in Paris, France. She, of course, wore her razor-sharp blazer with a Dior look.

After seeing two ways to dress up this Chloé blazer, Emma Stone’s look was more laidback while filming scenes in New York City for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ yesterday afternoon.

She styled the blazer with a beanie hat, floral blouse, dark-wash jeans, pink brogues and a tan Cambridge satchel.

I’m torn between Katie and Emma. In the end I picked Emma because the look feels more co-ordinated and I’m not too fond of Katie’s shoe choice.

Katie Holmes In Calvin Klein Collection – 2013 Met Gala

Katie Holmes In Calvin Klein Collection - 2013 Met Gala

Katie Holmes looked very graceful when she stepped out onto the red carpet for Monday night’s 2013 Met Gala in New York City.

While there isn’t much punk rock going on with her custom Calvin Klein Collection creation styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and white sandals, the brunette beauty did opt for a slicked back bouffant and smoky eyes.

Her ivory halter gown with a flowing train is Katie at her best, but does the fact that it isn’t really on theme lose her style points?

Katie Holmes For Allure April 2013

Katie Holmes Allure

Katie Holmes’ skin is positively glowing on the cover of Allure’s April 2013 issue, which hits newsstands on Tuesday, March 26.

The 34-year-old actress shares a lot with the mag, covering her family, beauty advice, expanding her family, and her hopes for 2013, but she doesn’t mention Tom Cruise. I’m guessing he was off limits.
Here are some extracts from the mum-of-one’s interview.

On rumours that she is going to be an attorney: “Well, my brother and father are attorneys, and – we’ll see. I like the practical thinking of attorneys.”

On her cancelled Broadway play, Dead Accounts: “I was open to – well, to whoever wanted me. But it was always my goal to make it back to the stage.”

On her plan for this year: “I hope this is a peaceful year for a lot of people in the world. When you look back on the last year, there were a lot of tragedies – Hurricane Sandy, the Connecticut shooting. I…I just hope it’s a good year for everyone.”

Katie Holmes In Dolce & Gabanna – The New York Observer 25th Anniversary Party

Katie Holmes In Dolce & Gabanna - The New York Observer 25th Anniversary Party

Katie Holmes attended The New York Observer 25th Anniversary Party at Four Seasons Restaurant in New York City yesterday evening.

Striking a slightly awkward pose, the actress wore a Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 black dress for the occasion.

Her raffia-effect embroidered tulle dress, which she nipped in at the waist with a black leather belt, was styled with a spaghetti-strap top for extra coverage.

Keeping the look effortlessly simple, she opted for neutral makeup, a gold bracelet and Valentino open-toe t-bar sandals to complete her look.

I have been excited about Katie’s style since the Katie-Posh years, but I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I do actually like this look.

Simple and elegant, without the usual bore factor.
