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…

Melissa George In Armani Privé – BAFTA Television Awards 2012

Melissa George was recently at Cannes Film Festival where she hit the red carpet looking dowdy in Calvin Klein.

I guess she was saving this Armani Prive Fall 2011 to dazzle the crowds at the Arqiva BAFTA Television Awards 2012 which took place at the Royal Festival Hall in London yesterday evening.

Surely the Couture gown would’ve been best served at Cannes, but I digress.

The strapless look features a lot of velvet, making this look a tad heavy for a rare hot evening in the capital.

I love the floral embroidery and the pleated details, but this is a case of right dress, wrong occasion, wrong season.

Sorry to say it, but this feels like a waste of an Armani Privé gown. It deserved more.

Melissa George In Armani Privé – Haiti Carnival Benefit

Melissa George managed to redeem herself from her earlier disappointing turn on the red carpet before the end of Cannes Film Festival.

She looked uber chic attending the Haiti Carnival benefit for the J/P HRO, Artists For Peace and Justice & Happy Hearts Fund hosted by Armani wearing an Armani Prive Spring 2012 dress.

Her part floral-print, part solid black strapless gown with a structured bodice was styled with smooth retro waves, statement earrings and an embellished clutch.

Melissa George In Calvin Klein – ‘De Rouille et D’Os’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Melissa George attended the ‘De Rouille et D’Os’ premiere during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival this evening.

The actress opted to wear a Calvin Klein Spring 2012 dress.

It is safe to say this is my least favourite look so far.

Not because of the sheer panel, but because it’s just plain boring.

Save this for a New York screening or another low-key event.

With Marion Cotillard, Fan Bingbing and Eva Longoria on this red carpet, Melissa really needed to up her game.

Melissa George In Calvin Klein – 6th Annual DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer Gala

Melissa George joined Solange Knowles, Dakota Fanning, Heidi Klum and Coco Rocha on the red carpet for the 6th Annual DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer Gala in New York City last night.

The actress wore a Calvin Klein Spring 2012 dress.

This is how to wear a nude dress without looking totally washed out.

Her effortless take on glamour was complete with ‘just-got-out-of-bed’ tresses, hot red lips, a beige clutch and matching platforms from the same collection.

It’s strange how a brand known for minimalism made such clunky shoes for their delicate pieces.
