Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket Event

Karl Lagerfeld hosted Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket Event at the Swiss Institute in New York City yesterday evening, inviting a host of celebrities.

Lily Collins: The young actress wore an ivory look from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection. This is most definitely something new for Lily. A sleeveless shirt was styled with a draped skirt. That extra hanging piece is really jarring and gives the skirt a diaper feel, which is a shame. I am also not crazy about the shoe choice, but I love the hair and makeup. I’m glad she opted to step out of her comfort zone.

Rinko Kikuchi: The Asian actress was one of the few who opted for a bright colour at this event. I love this teal chiffon dress and the glitter two-tone Chanel bag. The toe-cap Chanel pumps add an interesting contrast, much like her punky hairdo.

Leigh Lezark: No surprises that the DJ opted for the most daring look of this event. Her Spring 2012 look consisted of a black leather jacket paired with pearlized leather peach-coloured shorts.

Lily Collins in Marchesa – 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Lily Collins attended the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City on Monday night, where she presented the Swarovski Awards for Emerging Talent in Menswear, Womenswear, and Accessories.

The young actress wore Marchesa Fall 2012 dress.

The white-and-gold embroidered brocade dress with a fit-and-flare skirt is a sweet and girly look for Lily, who always brings overtly feminine looks to the red carpet.

The large gold eagle emblazoned on the front of the Marchesa dress is a quirky and unexpected accent.

Atelier Swarovski jewels, a Swarovski gold clutch, gold Giuseppe Zanotti metallic leather slingbacks and an oversized clutch accessorized her look.

Slicked-back hair shows off Lily’s trademark strong brows and gorgeous face.

Lily Collins In Alexander McQueen – 2012 Glamour Women of the Year Awards

Lily Collins was in London yesterday evening attending the 2012 Glamour Women of the Year Awards where she picked up the Breakthrough of The Year Award.

She looked very pretty in a non-princess-like way wearing an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

The green jacquard dress with a full A-line skirt is a simpler version of the same dress which appeared in the McQueen lookbook.

Black Alexander McQueen armadillo-heel pumps and a ruby Bulgari ring accessorized her look.

I love the styling with the sweeping wavy locks and the deep-rouge lip colour.

I’m normally indifferent to Lily on the red carpet, but I find this look quite charming.

Lily Collins In Valentino Couture – 2012 Met Gala

Lily Collins had yet another princess moment on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala, which was held on Monday night in New York City.

She looked adorable wearing a Valentino Spring 2012 Couture gown.

Her off-white sheer lace gown with a floral underlay, long sleeves, and a bow waistband is very ‘Little House on the Prairie’, but she totally makes it work for her.

Lily teamed her romantic gown with a Valentino grey snakeskin clutch and H. Stern jewels.

A pretty updo and soft makeup completed her look.

Mulberry Coachella Pool Party

Mulberry threw another party during Coachella; this time it was poolside at the Parker Palm Springs Hotel to celebrate the Fall 2012 collection despite the sunny climes.

Kate Bosworth: Never one to miss a Mulberry party, the actress was front and centre again wearing a full Mulberry Fall 2012 look. Keeping the same black high-top sneakers and ‘Lily’ shoulder bag from the previous event, Kate wore a fuzzy tight print tee with black studded shorts. Shades and a pop of colour via her pink lip colour and aqua fish-shaped earrings completed her look.

Emma Watson: The former ‘Harry Potter’ star wore a Mulberry Fall 2012 fuzzy tiger-print playsuit which I would’ve loved to have seen without the black cardigan. Emma’s accessories included beige Joie ‘Leo’ strippy flat sandals, a brown felt hat, a gold detailed black belt and of course the obligatory Mulberry bag, which was a tan ‘Lily’ shoulder bag in oak with tassels.

Lily Collins: The ‘Mirror Mirror’ actress was the only one who embraced the season and the soaring temperatures in Palm Springs, as she wore a summery look from the Mulberry Spring 2012 collection. Her ¾-length-sleeve stripy dress was teamed with a Mulberry ‘Lily’ shoulder bag in dark navy and Mulberry bow-front beige flats.

Last year’s event was a lot more colourful and season appropriate.

Mulberry ‘Firepit’ Coachella Party

On Friday, Mulberry threw a ‘Firepit’ Party to celebrate the start of the Coachella Music Festival.

The party, held in the garden of the private Gene Autry House in Palm Springs, was attended by many stars, some of whom opted to wear Mulberry’s Spring and Fall 2012 collections.

Kate Bosworth: The actress, a long-time devotee to Mulberry, selected a print dress which she wore under a cropped black jacket. She of course included Mulberry accessories with her look. They included Mulberry high-top black sneakers and a Mulberry mini ‘Lily’ blue suede shoulder bag with gold studded details. JewelMint jewelry and a glossy strawberry lip colour completed her look. Normally Kate’s shabby chic works for me, but not on this occasion. Maybe its the awkward pose which is putting me off.

Lily Collins: The young actress wore a Mulberry pebbled beige boucle windbreaker from the Spring 2012 collection. Only her dark-wash turned-up jeans weren’t by Mulberry, as she donned a Mulberry ‘Bonkers’ print scarf, woven sandals and carried the same ‘Lily’ bag as Kate from the Spring 2012 collection.

Sky Ferreira: The platinum-blonde actress did her own thing, but sporting a double denim look with a sheer blouse and black biker boots.

Lily Collins In Dolce & Gabbana – Cartier Juste un Clou After Party

After weeks wearing princess-like ballgowns promoting her new movie ‘Mirror Mirror, Lily Collins took a more masculine approach to the red carpet yesterday evening.

Whilst attending the Cartier Juste un Clou after-party at Skylight Studios in New York City, the actress donned a black Dolce & Gabbana blazer with Paule Ka pants.

An ivory ruffled bib blouse added an extra chic element to her look, whilst a red clutch and a complementary lip colour provided the finishing touches.

A perfect palette cleanser, don’t you think?
