Charlotte Olympia ‘Handbags For The Leading Lady’ Launch Dinner

Charlotte Olympia 'Handbags For The Leading Lady' Launch Dinner

Charlotte Olympia hosted an intimate evening of cocktails followed by dinner to celebrate the launch of the new leather handbag collection ‘Handbags for the Leading Lady’, held at Toto’s Restaurant on Thursday (October 23) in London, England.

Naomi Campbell: The supermodel was decked out in a beautiful black lace sari injected with a fiery red trim. Black and red appears to be a favourite colour combo for the supermodel and it works to dazzling effect again on this occasion. Her look was of course styled with a Charlotte Olympia ‘Astaire’ bag.

Paloma Faith: The British singer was of course wearing Dolce & Gabbana, opting for the brand’s signature animal-print fitted dress, which will never go out of style. Adding touches of red via her Charlotte Olympia ‘Dolly’ pumps, lips and nails, the singer completed her sexy temptress look with a gold Charlotte Olympia ‘Astaire’ bag.

Alice Eve: The British actress didn’t opt for high glamour like Ms Campbell and Faith, opting instead for a chic smart-casual look consisting of easy black separates, with a Richard Nicoll Fall 2013 cape playing the central role in this look. Alice was lucky enough to get her hands on the Charlotte Olympia ‘Bogart’ bag top-handle bag, which comes with a matching pair of gloves.

No doubt this bag will be heading to Dita von Teese soon in every colourway.

During Paris Fashion Week I got to see this collection up close. The images are below.

You can pre-order the bags from Charlotte Olympia’s website.

Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey attended the 28th American Cinematheque Award event held in his honour at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Tuesday (October 21) in Beverly Hills, California.
They were, of course, both wearing Dolce & Gabbana for this occasion.

Camila Alves: Looking as lovely as ever, the TV host opted for a more classic brand of glamour, wearing a long-sleeved black gown spliced with lace panels, which she styled with an Aldo clutch and Neil Lane jewels.

Matthew McConaughey: The actor wore a classic tux with a luxe velvet blazer with satin lapels styled with a Boucheron ring. Quite a suave look – no wonder Dolce & Gabbana continue to be his brand of choice.

Michelle Monaghan In Dolce & Gabbana – 20th Annual Fulfillment Fund Stars Benefit Gala

Michelle Monaghan In Dolce & Gabbana - 20th Annual Fulfillment Fund Stars Benefit Gala

Michelle Monaghan attended the 20th Annual Fulfillment Fund Stars Benefit Gala held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Tuesday (October 14) in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress selected another dress from Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2014 collection featuring the signature key motif, but on this occasion the dress also featured a floral print and a shorter length.

Her jacquard dress captures the mood of the current season perfectly, with effortless styling – including black Louboutins and a black Ferragamo clutch – the key to making this look work.

Keeping the makeup neutral and the hair swept back, does this look stand in contention for BDOTW? Or has this Dolce & Gabbana key motif already run its course?

Reese Witherspoon In Dolce & Gabbana – 2014 Variety Power of Women Event

Reese Witherspoon In Dolce & Gabbana - 2014 Variety Power of Women Event

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Lopez were somewhat in sync on the red carpet for the 2014 Variety Power of Women event held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons on Friday (October 10) in Los Angeles, California, where Reese was honoured for her work with the Malala Fund.

I’m sure many will consider Reese’s red and black dress in a floral embroidered lace design from Dolce & Gabbana to be much more event appropriate than JLo’s mini.

Her graceful and feminine choice was simply styled with black Saint Laurent sandals and red toe polish instead of the bold red lip Jennifer opted for.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

men 10 oct

Here is a look at two smart gents who took to the red carpet yesterday evening (October 9).

Ansel Elgort: The young actor joined Kaitlyn Dever for the ‘Men, Women & Children’ London premiere. This is taking it up a level. Working a strong graphic-print look from Dior Homme, I love those black calfskin strapped derbies with black and white rubber soles which give this look the cool flourish it deserved. Very well played.

Jeremy Renner: The ‘Bourne Legacy’ actor joined Mary Elizabeth Winstead on the red carpet for the ‘Kill The Messenger’ New York screening wearing a more classic look from Dolce & Gabbana. The pinstriped midnight-blue three-piece suit with a petrol-blue tie is tailored to perfection to allow Jeremy to stand out in the most sophisticated way possible.

Michelle Monaghan attended The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Hollywood costume opening party at the Wilshire May Company Building on Wednesday (October 1) in Los Angeles, California.

Even though this Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2014 key print is nothing new, I am still totally enchanted by Michelle’s look, not only by the dainty silhouette, which includes a floaty chiffon skirt, but also by the complementary styling.

Christian Louboutin nude embellished pumps, a Michael Kors clutch, and Sam Lehr jewelry rounded out her stunning look.

I also think her lighter hair colour is enhancing her radiant glow.
