Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Topshop Fall 2013 Front Row

The Topshop Unique Fall 2013 show took place in London yesterday afternoon and they invited their favourite celebs to take in the new collection.

Kate Bosworth: Decked out head-to-toe in Topshop, the actress wore a fluffy grey Topshop Unique sweater which she styled with a darker grey sequinned Unique mini skirt. Opting to keep her look monotone, she accessorized with a black Topshop clutch and simple black pumps. Neutral makeup and a top-knot provided the finishing touches. Did this look need some colour to lift it? Or are you happy with this look as it is?

Olivia Palermo: As you would expect from Olivia, she wore a mixture of brands for her front-row look. A cosy Tibi fur jacket, worn over her layered Topshop sheer blouse and white sequinned Tibi top, was accented with a white leather belt. I love the print on the Topshop cropped pants, which livened up the look, as did her Whistles yellow python clutch. Monika Chang black ankle-strap pumps with a white heel accessorized her look. Olivia’s longer wavy tresses perfectly framed her face, with kohl-rimmed eyes, pink lips and a red manicure completing her look beauty-wise.

Pixie Geldof: The star wore a blue-and-white floral-print Topshop Boutique dress. I’m not at all surprised to see her carrying her animal-print Dolce & Gabbana clutch, because she rarely hits the red carpet without one piece of her look consisting of a Dolce piece. Masculine patent leather loafers, gold jewels and a two-tone manicure completed her look.

Olivia Palermo was in London on Wednesday to attend the VIP viewing of the ‘Valentino: Master of Couture’ exhibition at Embankment Galleries in London.

Usually I get really annoyed when a celebrity attends a designer’s event not wearing the designer in question – especially someone like Olivia, who does have access to Valentino gowns – but I have been dying for a look from the Alessandra Rich Spring 2013 collection to hit the red carpet.

The socialite selected this tri-colour white, baby-blue and black delicate lace dress with a flame pattern.

Her halter dress was elegantly styled with a black collarless blazer, a burgundy clutch and Manolo Blahnik tri-colour pumps.

I went back and forth on her necklace, but finally decided it was a great addition to the look.

This is a BDOTW contender for me. Do you agree?

Olivia Palermo was in Madrid, Spain yesterday evening attending the Marie Claire Prix de la Moda Awards 2012, which were held at the French Embassy.

She kept her look very simple, wearing a Dior long-sleeve gown.

I love the delicate embellished neckline, which adds a touch of pizzazz to this look. I think this look would’ve been boring without that subtle detail.

Carrera y Carrera’s Gardenias ring, pearl earrings and a silver bracelet accessorized her look.

Pops of colour were added via her red nail polish and maroon clutch.

An elegant bun, pink lips and kohl-rimmed eyes provided the finishing touches.

Olivia Palermo and her boyfriend Johannes Huebl joined Anna Wintour at the Museum Of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts, last night for Mario Testino’s exhibit preview.

The fashionista wore a Tibi ensemble.

Her look included a metallic lace Tibi skirt, paired with a black Tibi camisole, worn underneath a gold-fringed top by Bird by Juicy Couture.

I don’t know about you, but this feels a bit too busy. The fringe top is to blame. While the colour is right, the detail is so very wrong and the style not so flattering on her chest.

Navy glitter Stuart Weitzman ‘Dagger’ pumps and a Rafe clutch accessorized her look.

A centre-parted ponytail, neutral makeup and a gold bracelet provided the finishing touches.

Back in April Fan Bingbing attended the opening of a new Valentino boutique in Beijing, China.

She wore a beautiful floral embroidered Valentino floor-length dress from the Spring 2012 collection.

Opting for a gimmick-free look, the actress wore her hair back and applied a coral lip colour.

Olivia Palermo wore the same dress a few months later when she attended the 2012 Brazil Foundation Gala Party in New York City.

Unlike Fan Bingbing, the lining of Olivia’s dress only reached above the knee. She also opted for a raspberry-coloured belt with gold hardware.

Also wearing her hair back, the star opted for a fresh-faced look and a bronze satin clutch.

I’m going to give this one to Fan Bingbing, only because I prefer the length of the lining of her dress.

Olivia Palermo is the queen of getting it ‘oh so right’ on the red carpet, so why did it all go so horribly wrong at the 2012 New York City Ballet Fall Gala, held at the David H. Koch Theater, Lincoln Center, yesterday evening?

It could be one of the following reasons.

Reason 1: Maybe I am instantly dismissing her Christian Dior Spring 2012 dress because it was not part of the Valentino dress code.

Reason 2: The Christian Dior two-tone asymmetrical gown with a tiered skirt is stumptifying her (making the petite star appear much shorter (and wider) than she actually is).

Reason 3: She opted to wear a statement necklace with an asymmetrical neckline (pet peeve).

Reason 4: That ombre purple-feathered bag, which has worked so well in the past, is an eyesore on this occasion.

Reason 5: All of the above.
