#DKNY25 Birthday Bash

DKNY25-Birthday-Bash2

Haute—and just plain hot—topics abounded at the lively #DKNY Birthday Bash on Monday, where fashionable femmes descended on 23 Wall Street in New York City. Skin was in, and so was sultry appeal, as PYTs flashed their DKNY best—and posed with designer Donna Karan and her iconic taxicab cake.

Emmy Rossum: Sizzling in gold, the actress illuminated the scene with a Midas touch like no other. With the glint of a metallic clutch, black Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps and a slicked-back ’do, Emmy was dripping in glamour.

Rita Ora: With her cool edge firmly in place, the songstress set off her paisley-print playsuit with a white jersey blazer, emblazoned with the number ‘25’ on the back. An embellished baseball hat capped off the sporty effect, whilst studded black Christian Louboutin ‘Artifice’ heels put the vamp in this game-changing outfit. Rita’s short platinum crop, along with lavender eye shadow and a cherry-red lip, added even more dynamic impact.

Hailee Steinfeld: The young starlet took a safer approach in a white, grey and black colour-block T-shirt and flared organza skirt. Her long wavy locks, smokey-rust eye makeup and black clunky shoes all registered as a bit lacklustre, when she could have had so much more fun.

Front Row @ NYFW Weekend Catch Up

Front Row @ NYFW Weekend Catch Up

Here’s a quick catch up of the front row who caught my eye during New York Fashion Week this weekend.

Ciara @ Prabal Gurung: The singer wore a pretty Prabal Gurung embroidered angular insert dress with a flared silhouette styled with bondage boots courtesy of Casadei, which were presented during the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

Solange Knowles @ Alexander Wang: What’s not to love about Solange’s outfit? The colour, the quirky glasses, the Wang Resort 2014 skirt, that bag and those sexy sandals…? Perhaps it shouldn’t, but it ALL works.

Rihanna @ Opening Ceremony: It’s been a while since we saw Rihanna front row at NYFW, as she tends to skip the shows and head to the after-parties. On Sunday she was front and centre at Opening Ceremony wearing a grey Zac Posen satin floral dress with Underground ‘Wulfrun’ creepers with a Lynn Ban choker. A part of me wants to say it’s ridiculous to pair such a pretty dress with creepers, but I have to say she sells it to me, as per.

Rita Ora In DKNY & Elie Saab – Out In New York City

Rita Ora DKNY

Rita Ora was spotted out in New York City on Monday evening working that signature red lip.

She would’ve stood out on the dark streets of Manhattan wearing a beautiful white DKNY Spring 2013 maxi dress, with a mesh racer-back top giving a sporty feel.

If your first reaction to this billowing dress is that it feels a tad bridal, take a closer look as I don’t think many brides would consider wearing a dress with such a sheer skirt revealing their panties.

The face of DKNY’s Resort 2014 campaign accessorized her look with the same Chanel and Cartier jewels she had worn to the Roc Nation after-party the night before.

Rita Ora Elie Saab

Last night Rita decided to paint the town red again wearing an Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2013 jumpsuit with wide-leg, floor-grazing pants and incorporating the same accessories yet again, this time adding a chain-accented shoulder bag to her look.

Rosario Dawson In DKNY – 2013 US Open Kick-Off Party

Rosario Dawson In Donna Karan - 2013 US Open Kick-Off Party

Rosario Dawson attended the 2013 US Open Kick-Off Party held at New York’s popular hotspot PH-D Rooftop Lounge at Dream Downtown last week.

The actress, who’s working a half-shaven ‘do at the moment, wore a DKNY Fall 2013 dress in a bright-orange hue with clean lines and an asymmetrical hemline.

This stylish minimalist loose-fit dress does wonders to flatter her boxy figure.

The only thing I would change about this look is that I would’ve opted for metallic-gold pumps instead of silver. They would have complemented both her jewels and her orange frock better.

Nevertheless, I do like this effortless outing.

Alexandra Daddario In DKNY – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Alexandra Daddario In DKNY - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Alexandra Daddario attended the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday evening.

I have featured her a few times on the site and, even though she always wears something different, I always have a sense of déjà vu.

Maybe it’s the same facial expression in every picture. Maybe it’s the samey hairstyle, but I really wish she would switch things up a bit.

Her DKNY Resort 2014 sheer-yoke black top and pleated pale-pink skirt could’ve been so much more fun and youthful with the right accessories and an expression which conveyed happiness to be there.

Debby Ryan In DKNY – 2013 Radio Disney Music Awards

Debby Ryan In DKNY - 2013 Radio Disney Music Awards

Much like Selena Gomez, Debby Ryan opted for a cute, youthful look on the red carpet at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Saturday in Los Angeles, California for the 2013 Radio Disney Music Awards.
The actress wore a custom DKNY frock with a flounced hemline.

Her textured dress in a hot-pink hue is delightful both in style and colour. She really optimized the fun spirit of this Disney-sponsored event.

Jean- Michel Cazabat ‘Oka’ sandals in yellow and green mixed materials, a gold bracelet, a pretty pink lip colour and a jade-green marble print Ashlyn’d ‘Agatha’ clutch – which complemented her eye makeup – provided the finishing touches to her look.

Coach 3rd Annual Evening Of Cocktails And Shopping To Benefit The Children’s Defense Fund

Coach Event 1

A bright crop of starlets turned out for the third annual Coach cocktail party and shopping event to benefit the Children’s Defense Fund, hosted by ‘Star Trek’ movie producer-director J.J. Abrams on the rooftop of his Bad Robot production company in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday. Coach clutches, handbags and totes proved to be the night’s hottest accessory, as many PYTs no doubt plucked up a new purse for their collections.

Chloe Sevigny: Always one to keep us guessing, the actress went for a rather girly approach in this printed Balenciaga dress that immediately had me wanting to fix that lopsided black bow at the waist. I also couldn’t get past the white tongue flap on those Balenciaga peep-toe shoes—or their mauve-purple colour that clashed with her coral-pink Coach clutch. An orange lippie proved another dissonant tone, although it matched the logo behind her.

Abigail Spencer: Donning a creamy DKNY Spring 2013 dress, the actress was chic and polished. She prevented sartorial boredom with a fuchsia handbag and melon-hued ankle-strap sandals. Loose waves and a glowing complexion finished off this breezy look.

Kate Mara: The ‘House of Cards’ star mixed masculine and feminine, showing a flash of skin in a Vena Cava sheer crop top with ruffled sleeve paired with black Parker peg pants and Brian Atwood’s ‘Wagner’ peep-toe heels. A Dannijo necklace was well-placed and added just the right amount of sparkle.

Rihanna In DKNY for Opening Ceremony – LAX

Rihanna In DKNY for Opening Ceremony - LAX

Rihanna was spotted on Sunday walking through LAX en route to London for her River Island collection launch party which takes place today.

She rocked a super comfy DKNY for Opening Ceremony jumpsuit.

The Spring 2013 piece which features a drawstring hood, zip front and side pockets, has been re-issued from DKNYs Spring 1991 collection.

What I love about this look it that it takes me back to my Mary J Blige ‘Real Love’ and Aaliyah ‘Back and Forth’ days.

It’s so very retro.

Riri completed her look with her favourite black Alexander Wang ‘Cameron’ booties and a black Joyrich PU faux-python studded backpack.
