Lupita Nyong’o In Honor – ’12 Days A Slave’ Press Conference

Lupita Nyong'o In Honor - '12 Days A Slave' Press Conference

Lupita Nyong’o attended a press conference and portrait session yesterday afternoon to promote her movie, ’12 Days A Slave’ during the 2013 Toronto Film Festival.

The actress opted for a colourful look selecting pieces from Honor’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

Her look consisted of a bright wool boucle top with a standing funnel neck and three-quarter sleeves paired with neon floral bourette shorts with a three-dimensional seam detail at the front.

Black suede Manolo Blahnik pumps and Lulu Frost ‘Orbit’ earrings completed her look.

I love the neon yellow against her skin, however, the only downside for me were the pumps when compared to the models footwear.

NYFW Spring 2014 Red Carpet Wish List

NYFW Day 1 (1)

ZAC Zac Posen: The second I saw this luxe ivory gown with a deep v-back and body-contouring seams, the first person to come to mind was Amber Heard. While I’m very intrigued about how the front looks, I know she would work that back even better than the model.

Honor: This clashing-print ensemble featuring a pointy-collared blouse and fitted skirt has only one destination – Solange Knowles’ closet.

Spring 2014 New York Fashion Week Front Row – Day 1

Spring 2014 New York Fashion Week FROW - Day 1

Here is a quick roundup of the notable attendees who took their front-row seats during Day 1 of Spring 2014 New York Fashion Week.

Zosia Mamet @ Honor: Still not able to crack a smile, the ‘Girls’ actress who has worn many Honor pieces on the red carpet opted for this pretty pink jacquard racer-front mini dress styled with red-and-white Tabitha Simmons for Honor pointy flats. Not one to usually wear much makeup, I love the pink lip colour here, but her overall styling – not surprisingly – is off.

Patrina Miller @ Tadashi Shoji: The Broadway star was probably picking out her next Tony Awards gown, taking her seat wearing a lovely red embroidered lace cocktail dress from Tadashi Shoji’s Spring 2013 collection.

Olivia Palermo @ BCBG Max Azria: The socialite and FROW regular doesn’t always play the ‘wear pieces from the designer show I’m attending’ game but she did so on this occasion, wearing a BCBG white-and-nude draped long-sleeved Resort 2014 dress with her favourite summer accessories, including the Aquazzura ‘Sexy Thing’ booties, Ray-bans and her crochet Gerard Darel bag, and eclectic jewels including the Lulu Frost necklace I had on my Must-Have Monday post a few weeks back.

Zosia Mamet In Honor – ‘The Company You Keep’ & ‘Trance’ New York Premieres

Zosia Mamet In Honor - ‘The Company You Keep’ & ‘Trance’ New York Premieres

Zosia Mamet is giving Olivia Palermo a run for her money this week by stepping out twice in two days for two different premieres. The only thing consistent was her choice of designer: Honor.

‘The Company You Keep’ New York Premiere: Sporting a simple top knot, the ‘Girls’ actress wore a look from Honor’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection. Blue and yellow has always been a favourite colour combo of mine, so I find myself wishing that Zosia had added a yellow accent to her silk shirt and high-waisted pants – either yellow pumps, a yellow ring or even a yellow necklace. Is this look missing something, or are you fine with the way it has been presented?

‘Trance’ New York Premiere: This is my least favourite look of the two. While the colour of the Fall 2013 dress is pretty and I love the heart-shaped accents around the neckline, the dress is too shapeless for my personal taste. Factor in the rough hemming of the dress to make it shorter and the blue-and-white pointy pumps – which were quite whimsical on the runway, but in reality make Zosia’s feet look freakishly long – and this is a no from me. I never thought I would say that about an Honor look.

Leslie Mann In Honor – 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Leslie Mann In Honor - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie AwardsPretty in pink was Leslie Mann at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, hosted last night at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

The actress was definitely seeing the world through rose-coloured glasses, as she embraced all sweet shades of bubblegum and cotton candy with her Honor Spring 2013 confection, plucked like a piece of taffy from the runway.

A sheer, long-sleeve lace top melted into a high-waisted, knee-length matte bubble skirt, and a Tiffany ‘Morgan’ clutch matched it all perfectly in pink.

Her fuchsia Jimmy Choo ‘Fitch’ ankle-strap heels weren’t the best for this look, but they were better than those shown on the runway: flat white sandals would have not worked for the red carpet. An edgier shoe in a fun, contrasting shade of cobalt would have been interesting.

A raspberry lip, natch, topped off his look that proved even redheads like Leslie can go pink.

Honor Spring 2013

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
