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.

Calista Flockhart In Vintage Halston – 5th Annual Kirk Douglas’ Excellence In Film Awards

Calista Flockhart arrived at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival to attend the 5th Annual Kirk Douglas’ Excellence In Film Awards in Santa Barbara, California.

The star arrived with her beau Harrison Ford wearing a gorgeous vintage Halston dress from Decades.

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

She accessorized well with matchy heels and a stand out gold clutch.

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 Shopbop.com 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.

New York City Ballet 2010 Fall Gala – Sarah Jessica Parker In Halston Heritage

A major fashionable event in New York City wouldn’t be complete without Sarah Jessica Parker walking the red carpet.

The actress arrived at the New York City Ballet 2010 Fall Gala last night shimmering wearing a nude sequined Halston Heritage gown.

It looks like she literally stopped traffic on her way to the Lincoln Center.

With her ombre hair falling down her shoulders, SJP wore two necklaces and carried her favourite Halston Hertiage Cleo sac bag.

This is a flawless look, but I would’ve stopped at the shorter necklace and lost the longer one.
