Michelle Obama In Halston – 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Michelle Obama hosted the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, DC with her husband this weekend.

The First Lady opted to wear a beautiful Halston Fall 2008 gown.

Her coffee coloured gown has been modified slightly as the plunge on her dress isn’t so deep.

Michelle is known for her love of accessorizing with beautiful jewelry – Erickson Beamon and Alexis Bittar are her favourites.

On this occasion I think her Irit Design jewels are overkill. I would’ve preferred this look without them.

The gown is so simple and charming on its own plus the colour is so gorgeous on her, I wish she had let the gown speak for itself.

School Run Style: Sarah Jessica Parker In Halston Heritage

We haven’t seen much of Sarah Jessica Parker lately. She didn’t even turn out for the Halston Fall 2011 presentation during New York Fashion Week.

Earlier today she was spotted out in New York City walking her son James to school.

She wore a rich purple belted Halston Heritage Fall 2011 hooded coat which is so very vibrant on a mild day in the city.

SJP’s coat has been modified slightly, as her coat doesn’t have the lace trimming the edges.

Black patent ballet pumps and dark sunglasses completed her yummy mummy school run look.

It’s amazing how a pop of colour can brighten up the day.

Nicole Richie In Halston – Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing Party

Nicole Richie attended Elton John’s AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing Party last night.

She looked amazing wearing a Halston Fall 2011 dress as the looks has more personality off the runway.

The floor length dress with asymmetrical slash details was recently presented during New York Fashion Week making Nicole the first person to wear a look from this collection.

Christian Louboutin python ‘Numero Prive’ heel, a black clutch plus Ofira and Lorraine Schwartz jewels completed her look.

I’m glad Nicole appears to finally kicked her boho habit.

Halston Fall 2011

I was super excited to attend my first Haltson presentation during New York Fashion Week.

The collection is designed by London based designer Marios Schwab. It’s his third collection for the iconic label with disco roots.

The venue at the Cedar Lake was full of stunning looks which wouldn’t look out of place at a glamorous party at Studio 54.

The designer was inspired by Lauren Hutton’s character in ‘American Gigolo’ so we were presented with fluid Grecian gown, pleated and draped cocktail dresses, shirt dresses, white cashmere column dresses, chocolate leather jackets, Mongolian fur jackets, jumpsuits and easy daywear looks.

The talking point of the presentation was when the lights dimmed and the white looks in the front glowed in the dark.

The Halston woman is statuesque, elegant and powerful.

Key accessories included paneled sandals and drop-front booties.

Favourites: ivory cashmere long cardigan with ivory cashmere knot detailed dress and chocolate leather jacket with plunging top and suede pants

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Angelina Jolie, Tilda Swinton, Lauren Hutton, Helen Mirren, Hilary Swank, Sarah Jessica Parker, Angie Harmon

X Factor: Sunday Week 8 – Dannii Minogue In Halston

On the X Factor tonight Dannii Minogue let her hair down after a few weeks of sporting elegant updo’s.

As you know I’m not really a fan of her ombre hair and tonight her hairstyle made her look like medusa.

She arrived on stage wearing a black Halston Spring 2011 plunging halter gown with a draped skirt.

The sleek black dress was accented with a gold waistband and a red HIV Awareness pin.

I loved everything about this look excluding the hair.

Dannii accessorized with Talisman Gallery earrings and Charlotte Olympia heels.

The bronze sequined spaghetti strap dress gently flares from the waist.

This look feels so divinely effortless.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab & Halston – 2010 Bambi Awards

Sarah Jessica Parker hosted the 2010 Bambi Awards in Germany last night.

She wowed the audience wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2010 gown.

The haunted forest print empire-line gown has a lace bodice with subtle sequin detailing.

It a gorgeous gown. She totally owns it.

SJP arrived on the red carpet wearing a shimmering Halston dress with bronze Nicholas Kirkwood heels and a Judith Leiber clutch.

I really love her belted asymmetrical dress, but I’m not a fan of her necklace with the dress. Necklaces and asymmetrical dresses together have never made sense to me.

I wasn’t fond of her final look.

The peasant-inspired look included a silver corset top with a multi-coloured voluminous skirt.

I think it looks really cheap compared to her other fabulous looks.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s Obsession – Halston Heritage Cleo Sac Bag

Sarah Jessica Parker has been seen out frequently with her Halston Heritage Cleo Sac Bag.

This iridescent metal-mesh handbag which features Halston logo plates at the front has become her “can’t leave home without” item.

Whether she’s attending the New York City Ballet Fall Gala, Fashion’s Night Out or talking her son to school she seems to always have her Cleo sac by her side.

SJP’s Halston Heritage Cleo Sac Bag is available to purchase from in a shimmering multi-coloured version.

I love how SJP incorporates this bag into both her day to day life and for red carpet events, but I still would’ve preferred a dainty clutch to the ballet.
