Red Carpet Fashion Awards

The 3.1 Phillip Lim presentation was another designer I had added to my New York Fashion Week schedule for the first time.

In describing this collection the designer said, “It’s about these chic women who ride bikes to work, to brunch, to a cocktail party.”

I don’t ride a bike but many pieces shot to the top of my wish list, as the designer showcased beautiful cropped pants, a wool anorak with black fur patch pockets and leather sleeves, a wool kimono sleeve jacket, a black jumpsuit with long beaded gold sleeves, colour-block pants and the final look was a sapphire maxi conical gown.

This menswear inspired collection consisted of oversized loose fitting easy wearable pieces. The outerwear really stood out with a mix of coats, anoraks and baseball jackets.

Key accessories included leather mules, scoop-front booties, cap-toe heels, oversize, square shades, briefcase-style bags and clutches.

Front Row: Richard Chai and Salman Rushdie yes Salman Rushdie

Favourites: Leather sleeved top with fern pants and taupe fold-over scarf jumpsuit

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kate Bosworth, Leighton Meester, Ginnifer Goodwin and Maggie Gyllenhaal

This week Jérôme Lambert, CEO of Jaeger-LeCoultre officially presented Diane Kruger as the face of the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Lady Ultra Thin watch.

We see her sporting a casual yet chic look which included a 3.1 Phillip Lim tunic from the Holiday 2010 collection and black tapered pants.

I love the floral appliqué on her bibbed tunic as it very Diane with its whimsical antique feel.

A braided black and gold headband plus sleek black patent pumps completed her look.

At the 2010 Toronto Film Festival Rachel Weisz attended two premiere.

The first was “The Whistleblower” where she wore a gorgeous 3.1 Phillip Lim white mixed jacquard jumpsuit which had a cut-out at the back.

A Roger Vivier clutch and beautiful blown out tresses completed the look.

For the Black Swan Premiere she opted for a summery Oscar de la Renta Resort 2011 dress.

Her white silk faille dress with navy silk and white sequin embroidery and a scoop neckline was teamed with Stella McCartney shoes, and Roger Vivier Night Tube clutch.

It’s hard to pick a favourite out of these looks because they are both so fabulous and both so different.

I get a cool relaxed vibe from the Lim jumpsuit and a Park Avenue Princess feel from the Oscar de la Renta dress and they both work for me.

Can you pick a favourite?

Leighton Meester was spotted filming more scenes for Season 4 of “Gossip Girl” in New York City yesterday.

She’s gone from wearing Victoria Beckham to Alice + Olivia this week.

Her latest look included a Marc by Marc Jacobs gold lame top with an Alice + Olivia high-waisted polka dot skirt from the Fall 2010 collection.

Blue suede lace-up ankle boots and yet another Croc-embossed tote completes her look.

I much prefer her off-duty look which includes a KJ by Kirrily Johnston top paired with 3.1 Phillip Lim fringed shorts which are embellished with grommets.

Her chic accessories included YSL ‘Muse’ sunglasses, Balenciaga heels and a Loewe tote.

I’m loving the matchy orange accessories with her blue/grey look.

Without even needing to conduct a poll, the Worst Dressed Of The Week Award goes to Maria Sharapova.

The tennis star is usually on point when it comes to style, so I’m shocked at how she got it all so tragically wrong at the “Evian’s Baby On The Inside Advertisement Promotion” held at the Openhouse Gallery in New York City yesterday.

I think we need to start off with her t-shirt with the headless baby in a diaper.


Granted the event is all about the “baby on the inside”, but that tee is creepy and not at all cute.

Her Spring 2010 3.1 Phillip Lim sequined shorts with foldover waist detail don’t seem to work with any other piece to her rather strange look, but it does work well with her tan.

A black satin blazer and black peep-toes complete the look.

This is a serious case of dressing in the dark.

Maria needs to redeem herself.

Keri Hilson attended the LA Premiere of “Takers” on Wednesday night.

The R&B singer opted for a semi formal look wearing an Alexander McQueen black blazer which she paired 3.1 Phillip Lim shorts from the Fall 2010 collection and nude Aldo pumps.

Her blazer looks a bit complicated with the H&M belt, but I like her fringed grommet embellished shorts which show off her toned legs.

Other than her shorts I’m quite dazzled by her Daniel Swarovski earrings.

Following the premiere Keri attended and performed at the “Takers” After-Party.

She wore yet another blazer. This time it was from Zuhair Murad’s Spring 2010 collection.

I really wish she opted to wear her ivory and black sequin snakeskin print blazer as a dress like the model.

Keri clearly has the legs to pull off the look in this way, as she proved on the red carpet.
