Lara Bingle In Camilla and Marc – Caulfield Cup Day

Lara Bingle attended the Caulfield Cup Day at Caulfield Racecourse Saturday in Melbourne, Australia.

I was delighted to see the socialite finally wearing something that doesn’t look like she was trying too hard, wearing a Camilla and Marc black jumpsuit with gold button detailing.

That was until I saw the ear accessory.

No doubt inspired by the styling from the Rodarte Spring 2013 presentation, Lara added a diamante ear cuff to her look instead of a more traditional oversized hat for the occasion.

Do you see this ear accessory trend taking off?

Lara Bingle In Louis Vuitton – SK-II Skincare Line Sydney Event

Lara Bingle attended the SK-II skincare line event at David Jones in Sydney, Australia, today.

The Australian star wore a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Her emerald-green sleeveless dress with black embroidery was styled with a black leather belt, black open-toe booties and a furry collar.

The furry collar seems a bit gimmicky on Lara. I don’t think she makes it work.

A gold cuff and a simple centre-parted ‘do completed her look.

You may remember Pace Wu wore the same dress recently during Paris Fashion Week.

2012 Women Of Style Awards

The 2012 Women Of Style Awards hosted by InStyle Australia was held at the Carriage Works earlier today in Sydney, Australia.

Miranda Kerr: The ‘Readers’ Choice’ winner stole everyone’s thunder by looking sensational wearing a Carla Zampatti gown. The pale-blue gown cut low at the back and front was styled with gold sandals and spectacular gold jewels. A red pout and simple ponytail completed her look. The day Miranda or Rosie look bad is the day the world is coming to an end.

Kate Ritchie: The former ‘Home and Away’ actress stunned once again wearing a Steven Khalil dress. The designer took a simple strapless dress and turned it on its head by adding dramatic pleats on the bodice, a half peplum and a gold metal waistband. A gold clutch and nude pumps completed her look. The only downside is her foundation which is too light for her complexion.

Lara Bingle: Sporting the same 50s French roll hairstyle Charlize Theron wore to her premiere last night, Lara wore a Romance Was Born printed polka-dot dress. Whilst Lara has great fashion connections, she never really takes ownership of what she’s wearing. She’s like a mannequin.

Erika Heynatz: The TV presenter/model wore a Ferragamo Spring 2012 colour-block red-and-raspberry look which consisted of a plunging blouse with a wrap skirt. I’m not crazy about the bow-front peep-toes, but I do love her complementary woven Ferragamo clutch. The look would’ve been perfect for me had she worn Solange Knowles two-tone Ferragamo sandals.

Lara Bingle In Josh Goot – 2012 Prix De Marie Claire Beauty Awards

Last month, Lara Bingle attended the 2012 Prix De Marie Claire Beauty Awards at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Australia.

For those who don’t know Lara, think of her as Australia’s version of Olivia Palermo in the sense that no one really knows what she does except sit front row at fashion shows.

On this occasion she wore a Josh Goot Fall 2012 ensemble.

Showcasing her midriff, she teamed a quilted leather floral embroidered top with a black wrap skirt which sits low on the hips.

The black slouchy boots give the look an edge, but I don’t think Lara quite has enough attitude to pull this look off.

Rihanna would’ve looked amazing in this.

Lara Bingle In Louis Vuitton – Louis Vuitton Maison Australia After Party

Following the ribbon cutting opening of the Louis Vuitton boutique in Sydney, Australia by Cate Blanchett came the after-party, which was attended by the country’s finest starlets.

No red carpet event passes by down under without Lara Bingle in attendance.

She donned a look from the LV Fall 2011 collection.

I don’t feel she quite has the personality to pull this off.

Whilst she made the right choice to tuck in her top to make the look feel less ‘back to school’, this leaves the skirt more room to overwhelm her.

The only thing that is going in her favour is her Alexander Wang Anais metallic silver loafer pumps.

One day, I hope to see Lara sport a beauty regime that doesn’t consist of barely there makeup and a bun.

Live a little girl.

Lara Bingle In Josh Goot – WHO ‘Sexiest People’ Party

Lara Bingle walked the red carpet for the WHO ‘Sexiest People’ Party in Sydney, Australia over the weekend.

The Australian model wore a Josh Goot Spring 2012 dress.

This abstract print dress is absolutely beautiful on Lara, but just seems completely out of place at a party for the ‘Sexiest People.’

Fussy sandals do not help, only shortening Lara’s legs.

This look would be more appropriate for a refined daytime event.

The simple A-line cut might be right up the alley for the next front-row appearance by Anna Wintour.

Leighton Meester Starts A Menswear Red Carpet Trend

On Monday night Leighton Meester wore a Thom Browne suit on the red carpet to the 2010 Gotham Independent Film Awards.

By Tuesday night many other celebrities had followed suit….see what I did there.

Stylish celebrities including Jessica Alba, Lara Bingle and Winona Ryder were all spotted on the red carpet wearing menswear instead of pretty dress.

The looks ranged from shirtless in Dolce & Gabbana for Jessica, who paired her look with sexy studded Christian Louboutin Pigalle studded pumps and an ivory Christian Louboutin Loulou clutch.

Lara opted to wear a white shirt and black velvet ribbon neck-tie with her peg-legged suit.

Gothic Winona kept her look black on black on black on black.

Her satin lapel Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci suit was paired with a satin clutch and silver pendant necklace.

They all look smart, but the only one who nails this look is Jessica.

Leighton can’t take total credit for this look as Marlene Dietrich and Diane Keaton popularized androgynous-chic a long time ago.
