Mulberry’s 40th Birthday Party

Mulberry ?’s NY.

Following the opening of their brand new flagship store at 134 Spring Street last Tuesday, they celebrated their 40th birthday party by throwing a lavish bash on the roof top of Skylight West on Monday night.

We sipped margaritas and scoffed down the canapés before taking to the multi-coloured lit dance-floor to rock out to Kasabian who played a 45 minute set.

A balloon artist made us animal shaped balloons and hats which was a fun addition to the party.

My friend from New York Daily News and I set about looking for the celebs at the party.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress quietly sat in the corner looking effortless and serene wearing a Mulberry Tille wrap dress from the Fall 2011 collection. She added a simple black blazer to her print dress and carried a Mulberry ‘Effie’ satchel from the Resort 2012 collection.

Solange Knowles: The face of Rimmel cosmetics is one of the nicest celebrities I have ever met. She’s beautiful and happy to talk to randoms like me. She wore a Mary Katrantzou Vienouas silk-georgette reversible shirt dress with Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte gold wedges whilst carrying a Mulberry ‘Fox Lock’ bag. She was impressed that I was able to name all her pieces (girl, this is what I do). I was stumped on her jewelery which she told me was by Lia Sophia.

Rose Byrne: As you know I have a mild large girl crush on Rose Byrne. The Australian actress was glowing wearing a Mulberry Resort 2012 gold pleat dress. I love the pop of colour via her aqua blue earrings. A white Mulberry mini ‘Taylor’ bag from the Resort 2012 collection and nude pumps I wasn’t too fond of completed her look.

Solange Knowles’ Emilio Pucci ‘Marquise’ Bag – INC International Concepts Announcement

Solange Knowles and her son Daniel Julez Smith, Jr. attend the INC International Concepts announcement at Open House Gallery in New York City last night.

The singer/DJ managed to restore my love for the colour-blocking trend after it was butchered on the red carpet the night before by Rashida Jones and Elizabeth Banks.

She wore a beige, black and red INC top with some J. Crew mustard cropped pants and animal print YSL Tribute pumps.

Apart from her top my main focus was on her Emilio Pucci ‘Marquise’ bag.

Pucci’s “it” bag has an adjustable gold chain strap with a leather handle, plus pierced and studded gold hardware along the edges of the front flap closure.

This gorgeous Fall 2011 bag is availble to purchase from EmilioPucci.com.

Net-a-Porter and Mr Porter Host A Party For Dolce & Gabbana

In London last night Net-A-Porter.com and Mr Porter.com hosted a party to celebrate Dolce & Gabbana joining the forever expanding list of brands on their virtual shelves.

Celebs donned in their finest Dolce & Gabbana treads to join in the celebrations at Net-A-Porter HQ.

Naomi Campbell: The supermodel and long-term friend of Mr Dolce and Mr Gabbana wore an animal print chiffon halter dress with black Alaia cut-out suede sandals.

Alexandra Burke: The British singer opted to wear a dark pink Dolce & Gabbana strapless lace bustier which she teamed with black lace Dolce & Gabbana peep-toes and a gold clutch. The clutch is really not working for me. Like really really not working for me.

Jamie Winstone: As you know I have a soft spot for Jamie. The British actress is never boring on the red carpet. She opted to wear a colourful Dolce & Gabbana floral print satin dress which she paired with Michael van der Ham blue devore wedges, which were worn over black socks. I was going to say that her shoe choice is shocking, but everyone else opted for black heels so I should be grateful she did something different. Read More…

Carol’s Daughter Event At Sephora

Solange Knowles, Cassie and Selita Ebanks attended the Carol’s Daughter Event At Sephora in New York City yesterday.

The trio – who are the new faces of haircare line Carol’s Daughter – all opted for very different looks.

Solange rocked her afro whilst wearing a lemon pant suit with a white shirt and python sandals.

Cassie showcased her Mohawk wearing a caramel Jen Kao knit mini dress with Isabel Marant Gava cotton-raffia and leather pumps and gold hooped earrings.

Selita sported a new blunt red bob wearing Christian Louboutin ‘Lady Daf’ pumps and a Karen Millen Tribal tutu dress Selena Gomez would pass on for being too cutesy.

Solange is the only one working her look.

The other two have been very misguided.

The numerous thin strips of gold leather are twisted to give three-dimensional characteristics to these unique heels.
