NYFW Spring 2014 Red Carpet Wish List Part III

NYFW Spring 2014 Red Carpet Wish List

New York Fashion Week came to a close yesterday evening, so here is my final roundup of looks I wish to see on the red carpet.

Calvin Klein: We all know Rooney Mara is going to pick one of the black looks from this collection, so I hope it is this one with its unique halter detail, contrasting fabrics and interesting fringe detailing.

J. Mendel: I would love to see this gown on someone with Mila Kunis’ dark colouring. The coral lace gown would look gorgeous against her skin tone and naturally smouldering eyes.

Calvin Klein Spring 2014 Show & After-Party

Nicole Kidman Calvin Klein Spring 2014 Show & After-Party

Calvin Klein presented their Spring 2014 show during New York Fashion Week yesterday evening, inviting Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara, Naomie Harris and Alexander Skarsgard. The stars also joined Francisco Costa at the after-party to celebrate his 10 years as women’s Creative Director and the new ‘Downtown’ fragrance.

Nicole Kidman

Show: The Australian actress looked very sophisticated wearing a brand-typical minimalist chic blush sheath dress accented with a gold belt, with stunning earrings, a gold Omega watch and tri-coloured pumps accessorizing the look and preventing it from feeling too one-note.

After-Party: Although the silhouette is the same, her two-piece black look was spiced up with a statement bracelet, red sandals with a pom-pom accent and a wavy bob.

Taylor Swift In Oscar de la Renta & Calvin Klein Collection – Toronto Film Festival

Taylor Swift In Oscar de la Renta & Calvin Klein Collection - Toronto Film Festival

The one person I wasn’t expecting to see at Toronto Film Festival was Taylor Swift.

The actress doesn’t appear in the movie she’s helping to promote, ‘One Chance’, but she does appear on the soundtrack as she wrote and performed the song ‘Sweeter Than Fiction’ for the movie’s ending credits.

She gave us two looks; the perfect combo of sweet and sassy.

Guess Portrait Studio: Donning black Christian Louboutin ‘Lagoula’ patent T-bar sandals and Cathy Waterman jewels, the country singer wore an Oscar de la Renta Resort 2014 blue silk-faille embroidered dress with a scoop neckline which was originally presented as a strapless dress which was worn by Rachel Bilson.

‘One Chance’ premiere: For the premiere the singer wore a sexy custom-made high-neck Calvin Klein Collection white dress with cut-outs which showed off her enviable figure. On this occasion she styled her hair into a ponytail, accessorizing with silver drop earrings and gold sandals.

The most surprising thing here is that she didn’t work her signature red lip for either look.

Which look do you prefer? Sweet or sexy?

I have to go with sexy. Not only does she rock the hell out of this dress, but she also looks so statuesque.

Iggy Azalea In Calvin Klein – Roc Nation VMAs After-Party

Iggy Azalea In Calvin Klein - Roc Nation VMAs After-Party

Iggy Azalea headed to the Roc Nation party at the Dream Downtown Hotel in New York City, which was also attended by Beyonce Knowles, Rita Ora and Rihanna, following the VMAs on Sunday.

The Australian singer wore a forest-green Calvin Klein Fall 2013 look which included a wool bandeau and pleated pants accented with a leather military roller belt.

This is further proof that the crop top trend is going to keep on rolling well into the autumn.

I love the I love the juxtaposition of feminine and masculine working in perfect harmony here.

Her sassy look was given an edge with a slick wet-look ‘do and, like many of the ladies who attended this event, Iggy worked a bright-red lip colour.

Maybe we should call this colour ‘Roc Nation red’.

Lady Gaga In Calvin Klein Collection – Out In New York City

Lady Gaga In Calvin Klein Collection - Out In New York City

Lady Gaga was spotted out in New York City yesterday as efforts to promote her new album continue.

It was raining yesterday, so the singer donned this Calvin Klein Fall 2013 dark-green raincoat.

This vinyl-bonded wool twill coat featuring a notch collar, self belt, and two front hinge pockets was styled with her favourite Tom Ford sunnies and Alaïa boots.

With so much excitement about Lady Gaga’s performance at the VMAs on Sunday, I’m wondering how she’s going to top her meat dress.

‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’ ‘Downtown’ Calvin Klein New York Screening

Calvin Klein

As the hosts of the ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’ screening, along with IFC Films and The Cinema Society, Calvin Klein dressed the other attendees aside from Rooney Mara.

Robin Wright: The actress snuggled up to her beau wearing head-to-toe black.

Ben Foster: Rooney’s co-star grabs my attention in this eggplant peaked-lapel one-button Calvin Klein suit for both the colour and sheen. He styled it with a light-grey shirt.

Melissa George: The blonde beauty looked gorgeous wearing a Calvin Klein seafoam-green cowl-neck loose-fit dress, which she styled with a silver-trimmed Calvin Klein clutch and nude sandals. I love everything about this – mostly the effortlessness of it all.

Zosia Mamet: Also dressed in Calvin Klein, the ‘Girls’ actress took a more laidback approach to the evening, wearing a blue silk shirt with leather pants. I considered giving her a rare pass, despite the racoon eyes, but the white shoes are heinous with this look.

Rooney Mara In Calvin Klein – ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’ New York Screening

Rooney Mara In Calvin Klein - 'Ain't Them Bodies Saints' New York Screening

Rooney Mara attended a screening of ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’ held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City yesterday evening.

The face of Calvin Klein’s ‘Downtown’ fragrance signature red carpet style has been consistently minimalist, and today is no exception.

She wore a Calvin Klein Collection Resort 2014 midriff-baring long-sleeved navy crop top and black pencil skirt combination, with her beloved Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ sandals making yet another appearance.

Her hair has also grown out considerably since the last time we saw her, and I noticed that her complexion isn’t as pale but this could just be the lighting or makeup.

Alice Braga In Calvin Klein Collection – ‘Elysium’ LA Premiere

Alice Braga In Calvin Klein Collection - ‘Elysium’ LA Premiere

Alice Braga joined her co-star Jodie Foster at the Regency Village Theatre in Hollywood, California yesterday evening for the premiere of their new movie, ‘Elysium’.

The Brazilian beauty went for a Fall 2013 look from the Calvin Klein Collection, wearing a navy leather top with a criss-cross back and a pleated wool skirt.

While some Fall looks can be a bit ambiguous, this one clearly reads Fall; however, both the top and skirt have a lightweight feel.

Going down the matchy-matchy route, the actress wore navy Saint Laurent ‘Tribtoo’ pumps, with a silver clutch and diamond earrings accessorizing her ladylike look.

A curly updo and glossy lips provided the finishing touches.

If you are having a case of deja vu, that maybe because Zoe Saldana wore a similar look from the same collection earlier this year.
