Gucci Cosmetics Launch Party

Gucci Cosmetics Launch

Gucci hosted yet another event this week, this time to celebrate the launch of its long-awaited makeup line, Gucci Cosmetics.

The event was hosted at The Carlyle Hotel in New York City on Wednesday (4 June) by Gucci’s Creative Director Frida Giannini in honour of Charlotte Casiraghi, who is the face of the brand.

Charlotte Casiraghi: The woman of the hour donned a pale-blue Gucci Fall 2014 dress with a leather bodice, which was originally presented in mustard. Keeping the look clean and simple, she added silver Gucci sandals.

Frida Giannini: Needless to say, I’m salivating over Frida’s Gucci black jumpsuit. The off-runway piece incorporates the bejewelled bib and leather collar we saw on the Fall 2014 runway.

Solange Knowles: The singer/DJ attended her third event in so many days. Standing out in a hot-pink Gucci Pre-Fall 2014 suit, she added a sea-blue clutch and gold Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals to her look.

Solange Knowles In Gucci – Chime for Change One-Year Anniversary Event

Solange Knowles In Gucci - Chime for Change One-Year Anniversary Event

Solange Knowles attended an event to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Chime for Change hosted by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini at the Gucci Fifth Avenue boutique on Tuesday (June 3) in New York City, alongside Blake Lively and sister Beyonce Knowles.

Still working super-wavy locks, the singer, who DJ’ed at the event, wore a ’70s-inspired look from Gucci’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

This orange silk split-sleeve blouse and cream wool wide-leg trousers look is my favourite of the trio.

I love the glam yet laidback vibe: the neutral makeup, gold accessories and nude Gucci sandals.

Solange Knowles In Calvin Klein Collection – 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Solange Knowles In Calvin Klein Collection - 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Solange Knowles attended the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 2) in New York City.

Her Met Gala look was somewhat of a disappointment, so I was delighted to see a return to glamour here.

The singer channelled her inner Diana Ross, working a voluminous ‘fro, donning a luscious custom Calvin Klein Collection embellished pewter silk dress.

While her gown is more like something big sis Beyonce would wear, this look serves as a refreshing change of pace.

Punctuated by a frosty-pink lip and styled with Jennifer Fisher jewels and a silver box clutch, Solange looked stunning from head to toe.

Sophia Bush In Cushnie Et Ochs – 2014 NBC Upfront Presentation

Sophia Bush In  Cushnie Et Ochs - 2014 NBC Upfront PresentationSophia Bush was also at the 2014 NBC Upfront Presentation at The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City on Monday (May 12), where she likely held court with Anne Heche and Krysten Ritter.

The actress cut a sleek profile in a dove-grey Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2014 dress.

While the label’s familiar body-con silhouette was still very much in play, the signature cutouts were replaced by an off-the-shoulder draped detail.

She enhanced the frock with Jacob & Co. jewels, including an on-trend hand bracelet and a dynamic pair of green gemstone and pearl earrings, along with a pearl-studded pair of Rene Caovilla sandals and a reflective Rauwolf clutch.

One embellished accessory too many, or just right?

Solange Knowles In 3.1 Phillip Lim – 2014 Met Gala

Solange Knowles In 3.1 Phillip Lim - 2014 Met Gala

I barely recognized Solange Knowles at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The songstress exchanged her signature ‘fro for a choppy, short bob, which caught my eye even before her 3.1 Phillip Lim custom dress did.

Continuing to ban her former love of prints in favour of a new affinity for bold, solid colours, she wore the orange sherbet-hued frock with 3.1 Phillip Lim sandals and edgier Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Although she worked this shorter frock instead of a gown, the loosely draped and ruffled dress still retained some element of vintage glamour, all spiked with a mod twist—mostly thanks to that new ’do.

Anya Hindmarch clutch completed her look.
