Dennis Basso Madison Avenue Store Opening

Dennis Basso Madison Avenue Store Opening

Stars gathered to celebrate the new Dennis Basso store on Madison Avenue in New York City yesterday evening. With the temperatures dipping outside, the designer couldn’t have picked a better moment to showcase his furs.

Debra Messing: The actress looks very content in her green mink coat, which she wore over a grey embellished cocktail dress which featured an on-trend sheer hem.

Brooke Shields: Sporting wavy locks, the actress opted to wear one of the designer’s embellished LBDs, which also featured a sheer hemline. Simple black pumps and silver jewels completed her look.

Olivia Palermo: While everyone else opted for a glam embellished frock, Olivia – as usual – marched to the beat of her own drum, wearing jeans and a black top, to which she added a Dennis Basso mink coat. Some of you haven’t been too enamoured with her red carpet choices lately, so how does this one fare?

Helen Mirren In Dennis Basso – ‘Red 2’ Tokyo Premiere

Helen Mirren In Dennis Basso - 'Red 2' Tokyo Premiere

Helen Mirren attended the ‘Red 2’ premiere held at the Tokyo International Forum on Sunday in Tokyo, Japan.

The British actress always looks very regal and elegant, and of course this was no exception.

Helen wore a Dennis Basso Fall 2013 long-sleeved taffeta plaid dress with scattered embroidery.

At first I wasn’t sure about the Vickisarge ‘Beatrix’ gold-plated multi-stone necklace, but then I realised that the necklace itself isn’t overkill: it’s perhaps the necklace and the earrings. Helen should’ve gone for one or the other.

Gold Gina shoes and a diamante clutch by the same designer completed her look.

Should Helen have taken one thing off?

Olivia Palermo In Dennis Basso – 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Olivia Palermo In Dennis Basso - 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Olivia Palermo was one of my favourites at the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards held at the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City on Monday evening.

The socialite looked divine wearing a Dennis Basso Spring 2013 fancy fringed frock.

Her nude dress with an embroidered sheer bodice and ombre fringed skirt was styled with a Zara clutch and Zara lace up slingback booties.

The eclectic styling included a gold waist band and gold leaf choker elevates the look.

For a short while I thought she’d lost her magic touch when it comes to accessorizing, but she proves that was not the case.

With the fringed skirt, I’m glad she didn’t opt for her favoured feathered clutch on this occasion.

Kara Tointon In Dennis Basso – British Academy Television Awards 2013

Kara Tointon In Dennis Basso - British Academy Television Awards 2013

Kara Tointon joined Sienna Miller on the red carpet at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday evening for the British Academy Television Awards 2013.

The former Eastenders actress, who reinvented herself as a West End girl, looked very graceful wearing a Dennis Basso Spring 2013 gown.

Her strapless gown with embroidered details also features asymmetrical fringed accents applied randomly on the skirt.

The fringed details do not work for me. They overwork a fairly simple look and the applications just don’t make any sense.

A 40s updo, onyx earrings and flawless makeup completed her look.

Was this gown overworked for you?

Coco Rocha In Dennis Basso – 5th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Coco Rocha was in Jersey City on Saturday afternoon for the 5th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic.

The model, who just wrapped a photo shoot with Bernard Hunt for the Dennis Basso Fall 2012 ad campaign, wore a summery dress by the designer.

Her Dennis Basso Spring 2012 nude dress with a (deflated) petal skirt is decorated with silver embellishments on the bodice.

Once again, the supermodel lets herself down with some questionable footwear.

Whilst appropriate for treading the divots at half-time, these caramel pumps don’t work with her nude dress.

I’m also not a fan of the dark lip, even if it is this summer’s hottest beauty trend right now.
