Charlotte Olympia ‘Handbags For The Leading Lady’ Launch Dinner

Charlotte Olympia 'Handbags For The Leading Lady' Launch Dinner

Charlotte Olympia hosted an intimate evening of cocktails followed by dinner to celebrate the launch of the new leather handbag collection ‘Handbags for the Leading Lady’, held at Toto’s Restaurant on Thursday (October 23) in London, England.

Naomi Campbell: The supermodel was decked out in a beautiful black lace sari injected with a fiery red trim. Black and red appears to be a favourite colour combo for the supermodel and it works to dazzling effect again on this occasion. Her look was of course styled with a Charlotte Olympia ‘Astaire’ bag.

Paloma Faith: The British singer was of course wearing Dolce & Gabbana, opting for the brand’s signature animal-print fitted dress, which will never go out of style. Adding touches of red via her Charlotte Olympia ‘Dolly’ pumps, lips and nails, the singer completed her sexy temptress look with a gold Charlotte Olympia ‘Astaire’ bag.

Alice Eve: The British actress didn’t opt for high glamour like Ms Campbell and Faith, opting instead for a chic smart-casual look consisting of easy black separates, with a Richard Nicoll Fall 2013 cape playing the central role in this look. Alice was lucky enough to get her hands on the Charlotte Olympia ‘Bogart’ bag top-handle bag, which comes with a matching pair of gloves.

No doubt this bag will be heading to Dita von Teese soon in every colourway.

During Paris Fashion Week I got to see this collection up close. The images are below.

You can pre-order the bags from Charlotte Olympia’s website.

Naomi Campbell attended Fashion Rocks 2014 at Barclays Center on Tuesday (September 9) in New York City.

The supermodel wore a one-shoulder, knee-length Versace cocktail dress with Swarovski crystal mesh and intricate geometric embellishments at the waist.

 

She accessorized the dress with layers of jewels, including two hand bracelets and metallic strappy gold Alexandre Birman sandals.

With her signature long, center-parted hair, gorgeous skin, nude lips and shimmery eyeshadow, Naomi is every bit the fashion legend in this look.

Naomi Campbell In Alexander McQueen – Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Naomi Campbell In Alexander McQueen - Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Naomi Campbell attended the Glamour Women of the Year Awards held at Berkeley Square Gardens on Tuesday (June 3) in London, England, where she picked up the TV Personality award for her show ‘The Face’.

The supermodel, who jetted in from New York following her appearance on the red carpet wearing a Marc Jacobs gown at the CFDA Fashion Awards, opted for a fiery McQueen number on this occasion.

The fringed gladiator-style black and red piece worn with the runway gold choker and statement platform heels is a hard look to upstage, but her tumbling wavy tresses really get in the way here.

Why wear a work of art such as this if 40% of it is going to be obscured by your hair?

2014 CFDA Fashion Awards Models Roundup

CFDA 1

Amid the crush of starlets and designers at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 2), the models definitely had their moment, too. They strutted out a range of dazzling, directional and sometimes daring looks at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

Joan Smalls: Putting her statuesque height to good use, Joan worked her midnight-navy Prabal Gurung draped, cutout gown to sexy effect also flaunting an Angelina leg through the thigh-high slit. She styled the look with metallic ankle-tie sandals and a mod fringe bang, but the gold choker necklace was unnecessary here.

Alessandra Ambrosio
: The Victoria’s Secret cat-walker took a red-hot approach in a Nonoo strapless gown featuring a structured bodice with a crossover ribbon tie at the back. She accessorized with Jennifer Fisher jewels, including a sharp, diamond-pointed pair of earrings.

Naomi Campbell attended her 44th birthday party held at the Billionaire Club Sunset Lounge on Saturday (May 23) in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

The model kick-started proceedings by popping corks wearing a sexy Givenchy sequin-embellished cut-out gown from the Spring 2014 collection, before changing into an equally sexy yellow laser-cut number courtesy of Versace, featuring a deeper plunging neckline.

It was her party and she can change if she wants to.

Naomi Campbell In Robert Cavalli – Arqiva British Academy Television Awards

Naomi Campbell In Robert Cavalli - Arqiva British Academy Television Awards

Naomi Campbell attended the 2014 Arqiva British Academy Television Awards held at Theatre Royal in London yesterday evening (May 18).

Wearing a gunmetal floor-length Roberto Cavalli gown with deep neckline and pleated train, the red carpet pro oozed glamour and sophistication.

While the revealing lattice-like bodice could have proved too daring for some, on Naomi it simply highlighted her amazing physique and the floaty, pleated fabric made for a romantic silhouette and elegantly softened the sexy cut-outs.

The model kept styling minimal with barley-there make-up and added a hint of glamour with a couple of Aztec-inspired gold cuffs.

While it’s easy to see why Naomi let the craftsmanship in the gown do the talking, I would have loved to see a hint of sparkle in the form of an emerald cocktail ring or a drop earring, but overall this is a stunning dress that Naomi pulls off with ease.

Burberry Hosts New Museum Artists Dinner

Burberry Hosts New Museum Artists Dinner

Burberry hosted a dinner party in honour of the New Museum Artists held at Lafayette in New York City on Wednesday (May 7) ahead of the third annual Frieze Art Fair.

Suki Waterhouse: The British model wore a soft-blue Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2014 sheer chiffon dress with a plunging neckline and slits in the skirt styled with nude Casadei platform pumps.

Dianna Agron: The ‘Glee’ star wore a navy and brown scoop-neck dress, but it’s her accessories which take centre stage. While not a fan of mixing metals, I do find her gold jewels and silver Burberry ‘Taylor’ sandals intriguing as much as the magenta lip colour. The clutch is a bit blah.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: This is the actress’s second Burberry Prorsum look in the last 5 days. On this occasion she wore a Fall 2014 loose-fit keyhole printed dress, adding a rare punchy pink lip plus patterned pumps and a gold clutch. I love the accessories as it would’ve been so easy to keep it simple with black pumps here.
