Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Even though yesterday was only day one of New York Fashion Week, I can already state that Honor will be one of my favourite of the Spring 2013 season.

I was blown away by the ultra-girlie ethereal collection which featured many garden-print pieces that will be coming to red carpets this Fall, as celebs will want to wear this collection asap.

Dresses and skirts with exaggerated silhouettes, blouses with high necklines and flutter sleeves, high-waisted shorts, blouses with oversized chiffon bows, summer tweed skirts, wide-leg pants, short sets, jacquard skirts and a white jumpsuit took to the runway on a colour palette of mostly neutrals with pops of pink and neon green.

Intricate details included lattice work, open backs, micro-sparkle trims and bell-shaped sleeves.
Key accessories included Tabitha Simmons ankle-strap sandals and pumps plus chic shades with coloured frames.

Sporting a fresh dewy glow, the model’s hair was styled into French braids with crystals intertwined.

Front Row: Julia Jones, Derek Blasberg and Michelle Harper

Favourites: White Georgette blouse with tree print organza high waist shorts and white jumpsuit trimmed in macramé with chiffon microsparkle collar blouse

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Lea Michele, Cameron Diaz, Carey Mulligan, Lauren Conrad, Elizabeth Olsen, Lizzy Caplan, Hailee Steinfeld, Keirnan Shipka, Carly Rae Jepsen, Nikki Reed, Kristen Bell, Bella Thorne and Mandy Moore

Eva Mendes attended the screening for ‘Girl in Progress’ held at The DGA Theater in LA last night.

The actress opted for a pretty Honor Spring 2012 dress.

Her check-print halter dress with a leather neckline and patent belt was teamed with Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals and stunning Bulgari jewels.

As much as I love Eva, this dress is a tad twee for the sultry actress.

This was a charity event, I’m not expecting her to go all-out sexy, but save this dress for the Zooey Deschanels or Elle Fannings of this world.

Shailene Woodley also attended ‘The Hunger Games’ LA premiere yesterday evening.

I wanted to like this look, but then I realised I was only feeling that way because I liked her and not this Honor Fall 2012 maxi dress for this occasion.

Don’t get me wrong, this black floral short-sleeve dress is nice, but it’s not doing anything for her and it looks a few sizes too big.

Whilst I’m not expecting her to upstage the main star, it would be great to see her have fun with fashion like she did when she first came to our attention.

It seems like she’s already over this red carpet thing.

Taylor Swift attended the LA premiere of ‘Dr. Suess’ The Lorax’ on Sunday evening.

The singer makes her animated debut in the film, by lending her voice to the character ‘Audrey.’

For the event, Taylor chose a lady-like Honor Spring 2012 dress with a full A-line skirt.

At first I thought the dress has a tan leather Peter-Pan collar, but her dress actually has cut-out details around the neckline.

Between the colour of the dress and shoes, plus her fair skin and blonde hair, it’s hard to tell where the dress ends and Taylor begins.

Bright shoes or her signature red lip colour were much needed here.

Oprah Winfrey was beaming with joy at the inaugural graduation for the Leadership Academy for Girls in Henley on Klip, South Africa earlier today.

The graduates, who were all dressed in white, were just as excited to share their accomplishments with Oprah.

Fashion would’ve been the last thing on on their minds at this event, but it has to be noted that Oprah looked so very charming and graceful wearing an Honor Fall 2011 dress.

Her emerald green silk chiffon dress was accessorized with a multi-colour tasseled belt, flat sandals and emerald jewels.

The former TV host founded the Leadership Academy for Girls in January 2007 in an effort to provide leadership and educational opportunities for gifted girls from impoverished backgrounds.

At the celebration she said, “I’m one proud momma today, I always held the vision that this day was possible.”

Shailene Woodley attended the 2012 AFI Awards in Beverly Hills on Friday afternoon.

After wowing us in Calvin Klein at the Critics’ Choice Awards, the actress opted for a girlier look on this occasion wearing a cream Honor Spring 2012 lace dress.

Nude lining, scalloped hems and a simple ponytail add to the sweet ensemble.

We are only slightly turned off because of the black and cream Stella McCarteny two-tone faux leather Mary Janes which seem too heavy for the lightness of the look.

Perhaps if she had worn a black belt they may have worked, or just a simpler sandal.

I also wish she’d kept the Peter Pan collar.
