Anna Dello Russo @ Paris Fashion Week Part II

ADR 1

Fashion month wouldn’t be half as entertaining without Anna Dello Russo, so let’s catch up with our favourite fashion editor.

Christian Dior: Anna Dello Russo has been a fan of Fausto Puglisi long before the likes of Lily Collins and Bella Thorne fell for the designer’s charms. Once again she donned a Spring 2014 look fresh off the Milan runway, selecting a blue-and-black dress with a sculptured flared skirt with sequin palm-tree embellishments, styled with her favourite Tom Ford sandals.

Valentino: The quirk factor has been missing from Anna’s street-style repertoire for a few seasons – remember the season she loved wearing fruit on her head? Here her love for fancy hats returns, donning a black cap with Mickey Mouse ears with her Valentino Fall 2013 black-and-white look featuring Valentino black dress with a contrasting leather collar and cuffs with the Valentino patent-leather-and-suede T-bar pumps which are a favourite among the fashion set.

Celine: Having worn a top-to-toe Celine look last week, Anna selected another Pre-Fall 2013 look, donning a loose-fitted suit featuring a double-breasted blazer accented with gold buttons styled with black shoes with a gold-metal plate and her straw boater.

Givenchy: Anna jumped on the Bambi bandwagon at Givenchy. Like Lily Collins, she also opted to wear her sweater as a dress, adding a studded belt.

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Dries Van Noten – Gotham Magazine Summer Cover Party

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Dries Van Noten - Gotham Magazine Summer Cover Party

Maggie Gyllenhaal attended the Gotham Magazine celebration of its summer issue, of which she graces as their cover star, in New York City yesterday evening.

Taking a break from promoting her latest movie, ‘White House Down’, I am surprised it’s taken Maggie this long to wear a look from Dries Van Noten’s Fall 2013 collection.

The actress selected a sleeveless black frock with a feathered skirt which she styled with an Alexander McQueen clutch and her favourite Casadei ‘Blade’ kitten heels.

I wish Maggie has opted for the runway necklace, or any statement necklace to lift this look, which despite all those distracting feathers does need something else to give the look a touch more pizzazz.

Rihanna In Dries van Noten – Out In New York

Rihanna In Dries van Noten - Out In New York

Rihanna, who is one of the many stars who is expected to take to the red carpet this evening for the Met Gala, was spotted leaving her hotel in New York yesterday evening.

The singer was dressed in a Dries van Noten Spring 2013 dual-coloured plaid coat, which was navy at the front and sheer burgundy at the back. The coat was, of course, worn sans top to give her a plunging neckline revealing several tattoos.

Waxy blue jeans, burgundy Manolo Blahnik sandals and a cap worn backwards were added to her look.

I have to say I love this from head to toe – even the exposed tattoos and the cap.

Put this coat in someone else’s hands and it wouldn’t be much of a talking point, but Rihanna, as always, takes it to the next level.

Emilia Clarke In Dries van Noten – LAX

Emilia Clarke In Dries van Noten - LAX

When most of us get ready to head to the airport, we don’t have the added pressure of a hoard of paparazzi following us, so we’re likely to wear a super-laid-back look which can often include comfy sweatpants and in some cases PJs.

Emilia Clarke no longer has that luxury, although her Dries van Noten Spring 2013 ensemble does look super comfy.

Arriving at LAX yesterday en route back to New York, the British actress wore a plaid shirt with floral-print pants, which is a print mash up the likes of Solange Knowles will be dying to get their hands on.

Adding solid colours to her look, she accessorized with a white cardigan, black peep-toes and a Ralph Lauren bag with tassel and gold stirrup accents.

Did she nail her airport look, or is she too dressed up for a 5 hour flight?

A Week In Brad Goreski’s Closet

Brad Goreski is known as a stylist to the stars, but he also garners a lot of attention for his own red carpet looks.

DETAILS Hollywood Mavericks Party: The first look is surprisingly sombre for the floral-pant-loving stylist. His nutmeg suit and checked shirt by Black Fleece, the younger sibling of Brooks Brothers, was styled with moss-green Louboutin lace-up shoes.

Trevor Live: Now this is more like the Brad we all know and love. Sporting a smooth Dries van Noten emerald-green blazer, I’m glad to see the return to the Christian Lacroix bowtie on this occasion. A white Black Fleece shirt and grey pants, which are neither too long or too short, are perfectly muted to complement the blazer. I love the added quirk of medal-embellished Christian Louboutin loafers.

Rodeo Drive Walk of Style honouring Bulgari: Brad’s final look of the week was another look designed by Black Fleece. The charcoal look featured a plaid overcoat and matching pants, which he styled with a light-grey tie and white dress shirt. Simple black Louboutin shoes completed his look.

All three looks are great and so different. I don’t know why I ever considered menswear to be boring. I love that the frames of Brad’s glasses also changed for every look.

My favourite has to be the Trevor Live event. Which would you like to see up for BDOTW?
