Luisa Via Roma Dinner Party

On Sunday evening LUISAVIAROMA.COM hosted a dinner party to celebrate the success of the FIRENZE4EVER event.

We all arrived decked out in our fancy dresses for the occasion.

I wore the most prized possession in my closet: my Antonio Berardi Spring 2012 dress.

The aqua dress has a silver and green panel which gives the illusion of a very narrow waist and has also been worn by Giovanna Battaglia.

I styled my dress with a Rafe clutch and a silver pair of Nicholas Kirkwood metallic peep-toes I had purchased at the sample sale last week.

I was very proud to be wearing British designers on the night.

The dinner was hosted outside at the Nuovo teatro dell’opera di Firenze on the world’s longest dining table.

After dining, we worked off the calories on the dance floor with DJ Misty Rabbit spinning the deck and a live performance from Neimo.

On Saturday, Luisa Via Roma took to the Madonna concert.

Having never been to a Madonna concert before I didn’t know what to expect.

What I saw was an amazing performance, electrifying production and I was surprised to see her son Rocco join in for some of the performance.

Madonna, at 54, was able to outdance her dancers 30 years her junior. I have a new found respect for the Queen of Pop.

After singing some of ‘Born This Way’, Madonna then went on to sing, ‘She’s not me….and don’t you forget it‘.

Meow…saucer of milk for Ms Ciccone. Go to TheBagHagDiaries to see some amazing pictures from the concert.

Lady Gaga In Antonio Berardi – Auckland’s Stamford Hotel

The next stop on Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour is New Zealand, where she will perform three concerts at the Vector Arena.

When she arrived at the Stamford Hotel in Auckland this afternoon, she met her little monsters; stopping to pose for photos.

Gaga delighted her fans wearing an Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 sleeveless peplum dress.

The singer works two trends in one; neon plus she joins the growing peplum posse.

Gaga wouldn’t be Gaga if she didn’t add some quirky accessories.

She styled her dress with white Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps (kill me now if this trend takes off), white gloves, cool smoke-framed sunglasses and pearl accented jewels.

A 40s hairstyle and a bold red lip colour completed her look.

I love the classic black-and-white runway version, but I adore the neon orange.

Nicole Kidman In Antonio Berardi – ‘Paperboy’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Nicole Kidman has finally made an appearance at Cannes Film Festival.

The Australian actress attended the ‘Paperboy’ photocall at the Palais des Festivals with Zac Efron and Matthew McConaughey.

Nicole looked statuesque wearing an Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 dress.

Her blood-orange sleeveless pencil dress is true to both her and Antonio’s classic ladylike style.

With some of her hair pinned back with embellished clips, the actress completed her look with gold jewels, including an Omega watch, and maroon Manolo Blahnik kitten heels.

This is a great look for Nicole.

I can’t wait for the premiere.

Erin Wasson In Antonio Berardi – ‘Amour’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Erin Wasson took to the red carpet for the ‘Amour’ premiere during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival this evening.

The model wore an Antonio Berardi Spring 2012 dress.

Her flowing silk chiffon rise-and-fall light blue gown was decorated with scattered ruby leather petals.

I would’ve balanced the style’s high neck with a pinned updo, but Erin opted to sweep her wavy locks over one shoulder which works perfectly.

A slick of nude lippie, Aquazzura ‘Carine’ nude-and-gold sandals and Chopard jewels completed her look.

Alice Eve In Antonio Berardi – ‘Men In Black 3’ London Premiere

Alice Eve joined Nicole Scherzinger on the red carpet for the UK premiere for ‘Men In Black 3,’ which took place in London this evening.

Perhaps they should call the film ‘Women in Black,’ as like Nicole, the blonde actress opted for a darker look, wearing a sleek Antonio Berardi Spring 2012 dress.

The patent leather panel gives the look a futuristic vibe and prevents the look from being a typical LBD.

Paired with asymmetrical Roger Vivier sandals, I even get a bit of an alien-vibe, which is very apropos, given the theme of the movie.

A smooth bob and ruby lips finish the look.

Brooklyn Decker In Antonio Berardi – ‘Battleship’ Cartagena Photocall

Prior to the ‘Battleship’ Cartagena premiere yesterday evening, Brooklyn Decker attended the press conference for the movie in Colombia.

The model continues to wow, this time wearing an Antonio Berardi Spring 2012 dress.

Her body-hugging red-hot dress with a sculpture neckline is decorated with leather embroidery.

She wore the same black sandals that she wore to the premiere, but on this occasion she wore her hair up into a simple wispy bun.

If this look feels familiar to you, that’s because Kate Bosworth wore a red dress from the same collection with similar embellishments to the Sundance Film Festival.

Which look do you prefer?

Photocall or premiere?

You can buy Brooklyn’s Antonio Berardi’s dress from Selfridges
or in black from farfetch.com and Browns Fashion.
