Front Row @ NYFW Weekend Catch Up

Front Row @ NYFW Weekend Catch Up

Here’s a quick catch up of the front row who caught my eye during New York Fashion Week this weekend.

Ciara @ Prabal Gurung: The singer wore a pretty Prabal Gurung embroidered angular insert dress with a flared silhouette styled with bondage boots courtesy of Casadei, which were presented during the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

Solange Knowles @ Alexander Wang: What’s not to love about Solange’s outfit? The colour, the quirky glasses, the Wang Resort 2014 skirt, that bag and those sexy sandals…? Perhaps it shouldn’t, but it ALL works.

Rihanna @ Opening Ceremony: It’s been a while since we saw Rihanna front row at NYFW, as she tends to skip the shows and head to the after-parties. On Sunday she was front and centre at Opening Ceremony wearing a grey Zac Posen satin floral dress with Underground ‘Wulfrun’ creepers with a Lynn Ban choker. A part of me wants to say it’s ridiculous to pair such a pretty dress with creepers, but I have to say she sells it to me, as per.

Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner

Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner

Chanel hosted a dinner party to celebrate the Tribeca Film Festival artists in New York City yesterday evening.

Alexa Chung: The TV presenter was of course at the event, wearing a charming beige tweed Chanel Spring 2013 dress with pearl buttons. Her styling was to be expected, with a Chanel quilted bag and dual-colour beige-and-black Chanel Mary Jane pumps.

Shala Monroque: The Prada/Miu Miu devotee clearly didn’t read the invite. The fashion editor opted to wear a Miu Miu nude embellished dress from the Spring 2010 collection, which she accented with a large beetle brooch. You may remember that Kerry Washington’s Golden Globe dress was inspired by this collection. I am usually a big fan of Shala’s style, but the heavy blazer, floral-accented Jesus sandals and blue bag are not working for me at all.

Kiernan Shipka: Out on a school night for the third night in a row, the young ‘Mad Man’ actress wore a denim dress with chequered trims from the Spring 2013 collection. Black booties and a hot-pink Chanel bag keeps this look youthful.

Marni Fragrance Launch

Marni Fragrance LaunchA trendy list turned out to support the first Marni fragrance at an exclusive party on Tuesday, presented by Consuelo Castiglioni, at Marni Edition in New York City. British TV presenter and model Alexa Chung even had a DJ set in store for all those Marni mavens, who dressed for the occasion with bold and brave exits from the designer that ranged in style from cool-girl (and cool-boy) to sassy schoolgirl.

Alexa Chung: Along with her party playlist, Alexa delivered a prepster, winter-casual look with her top-to-toe Marni ensemble. She wore a toggle coat over a green printed shirt and high-waisted skinny jeans along with a blocky pair of metallic, Pilgrim-like loafers. It shouldn’t all work, but somehow she rocks it in her own way.

Christina Ricci: The actress didn’t get the casual memo like Alexa, instead donning a flirty Marni outfit with her girly green skirt and embellished blouse. She paired it with a beige zipper bag and plain black sandals that looked, well, a bit cold.

Leigh Lezark and Geordon Nicol: The two DJs from The Misshapes hit some interesting fashion chords. Sporting a new blonde do, Leigh’s candy-apple-red Chanel Spring 2013 overcoat and white shirt dress got an extra shot of quirk with those knee socks and red flats. Geordon played her cool companion, mixing things up with his blue and green micro-prints, matched with a black beanie and patent black shoes.

Were any of these looks ‘scent’-sational for you?

Versace Soho New York Boutique Opening

Versace opened a new boutique in Soho, New York, yesterday evening and Donatella Versace invited along her favourite celebs and supermodels to celebrate the occasion.

Jennifer Hudson: The singer was my favourite at this event. She wore a chic black flared leather skirt with cross details from the Versace Fall 2012 collection paired with a black turtleneck with Swarovski crystals. What I love most about this look is the orange coat with chainmail inserts and that gorgeous smile. A simple side-parted bun and black knee-high Versace boots from the Fall 2012 collection completed her look.

Alexa Chung: I never had Alexa down as a Versace girl, so I’m not surprised that she opted for the more youthful and edgier Versus collection. I love burgundy, so I’m mildly obsessed with her burgundy knit turtleneck top paired with a matching leather mini skirt from the Versus Fall 2012 collection. You’ll be surprised to learn I have no complaints about this look. No, not even her hair.

Princess Charlene of Monaco: The modern princess opted for a sexy, simple, yet chic look donning a Versace cashmere coat with leather inserts, paired with over-the-knee leather Versace gold toe-cap boots. The only pop of colour came via her red lips.Read More…

Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Party

H&M hosted a party in New York City to celebrate their Maison Martin Margiela collaboration on Tuesday evening.

Mena Suvari: Despite not being a fan of Mena’s trompe l’oeil bodysuit, she’s totally working this look, as per. She styled the look with a navy ‘Hitched Up’ skirt, tan wedges with a Perspex heel and a giant silver metallic candy wrapper clutch (a must-have from this collection). She was my favourite at this event.

Leigh Lezark: I’m not surprised that the DJ picked the most colourful and difficult-to-wear piece from the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection. She’s never one to fade into the background. The look includes a colourful printed-scarves top and skirt. She opted for the wedges in black.

Selma Blair: The actress wore the black version of the ‘Horizontally Worn’ dress with black wedges. I love how she styled the look with the china bumps and red lip colour, but I prefer the blue version of this dress which appears in the lookbook.

Julianne Moore: A simple black Maison Martin Margiela for H&M suit with peaked shoulders look super chic on Julianne.

Sarah Jessica Parker: The actress looked like an Olsen twin engulfed with so many layers and an oversized blazer.

Helena Christensen: The supermodel makes this £179.99 leather ‘Car Seat Cover’ dress look even more expensive. She styled her look with all black accessories.

The Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection hits stores November 15. Click here to see the accessories.
