Karolina Kurkova In Esteban Cortazar - Dream For Future Africa Foundation Inaugural Gala

Karolina Kurkova attended the Dream for Future Africa Foundation Inaugural Gala honouring Franca Sozzani of VOGUE Italia held at Spago in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening.

Opting to scrape back her hair and decide upon what appears to be no makeup at all, the supermodel wore an Esteban Cortazar Fall 2013 LBD with multiple cut-out details, a cape back and grey panels cupping the sides of her dress.

The look was styled with simple black ankle-strap pumps, but I’m missing just one element, a clutch perhaps, to take this from meh, to me likey.

You may remember that Toni Collette wore this same dress to the ‘Enough Said’ New York screening last month.

Toni Collette In Esteban Cortazar - 'Enough Said' New York Screening

Toni Collette attended the ‘Enough Said’ New York Screening held at Paris Theater in New York City yesterday evening.

Taking a sexy, edgier approach to this event, she wore a Esteban Cortazar Fall 2013 LBD with multiple cut-out details, a cape back and grey panels cupping the sides of her dress with Sigerson Morrison ankle boots, Jorge Adler jewelry and black vintage clutch.

At first I wanted to say that this look was too edgy for the Australian actress, but in hindsight I think she rocked the look quite well.

She has the body to work it and, while I would’ve preferred her to wear an open-toe shoe considering the length of her dress, I love that she doesn’t fade into the background at this event.

Esteban Cortazar Exclusive On Net-A-Porter

Solange Knowles, Brandy Norwood and Nicole Richie will be delighted to learn that Colombian-born designer Esteban Cortazar’s second collection is available exclusively on

For Resort the collection was full of creams, nudes and white piece. This time around the 23-piece Fall collection consists of a more muted palette of greys and blacks – so the question is, will this collection grab the eye of colour- and print-loving Solange?

The designer describes the collection as trans-seasonal, working throughout the year in different countries and climates globally; he purposely made each piece to have versatility, translating easily from day to night.

The sporty, yet luxe, separates include his signature draped tailored blazers, dresses with asymmetrical lines, tunics, mini dresses, fitted dresses, leather-trimmed skirts, a parka and some red-carpet-worthy gowns.

Taking his accessories collection up a notch from just shoes, Esteban incorporated jewelry this time, including rings, bracelets and a necklace.

Brandy In Esteban Cortazar - Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2013

Brandy was one of the guest performers on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve special on Monday night, which I’m guessing was pre-recorded as she was spotted on the red carpet in Las Vegas on the same night.

On this occasion she sported long tresses while wearing an Esteban Cortazar Resort 2013 look.

This is the second look she’s worn from the Colombian designer’s collection, which can also boast Solange Knowles as a huge fan.

Dressed in an LWD with a dramatic funnel collar and daring asymmetrical cut-outs at the back, she styled her one-sleeved frock with Tom Ford over-the-knee anaconda stiletto boots, which have also been spotted on Rihanna and Miley Cyrus.

Do you like the edgier looks Brandy has been serving up lately, or do you think she’s trying way too hard?

Brandy was just one of the ladies to take to the red carpet at the ‘VH1 Divas’ 2012 event held at the Shrine Auditorium yesterday evening in California.

The singer/actress selected a look from the Esteban Cortazar Resort 2013 collection, which so far has only been worn by Solange Knowles.

Her flirty asymmetrical ensemble with futuristic cuts was styled with metal-ankle-cuff leather sandals from the same collection and a selection of gold jewels.

While the skirt of the dress is particularly fussy, I think Brandy does a good job of making this work for her by not trying too hard and going easy on the accessories, allowing the dress to speak for itself.

Last month Solange Knowles attended a glamorous fundraiser for President Barack Obama hosted by sister Beyonce and brother-in-law Jay-Z at the 40/40 Club in New York City.

The stylish star, who’s usually fond of colour, donned all white again as she made her way into the event.

I adore her Esteban Cortazar Resort 2013 cape-back jacket. It is the hero piece of this look and she wore it with a silk shirt and a leather, twill and duchess-satin mini skirt with gold hardware.

Celebs have been falling in love with Tom Ford shoes lately and Solange is not immune to the allure of his sexy strappy sandals.

A Kayu ‘Audrey’ shell purse with a dainty top-handle and Carelle jewels completed her look.
