The CW Network’s New York 2013 Upfront Presentation

The CW Network's New York 2013 Upfront Presentation

A bevy of bright young things made quite an entrance at The CW Network’s New York 2013 Upfront Presentation, hosted at The London Hotel yesterday in New York City. Among the hot list, there are starlets from ‘The Carrie Diaries’ to ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and every TV show in between—and they certainly didn’t keep their sartorial sass under lock and key.

Jaime King: The ‘Hart of Dixie’ star flaunted a bold swish of brushstrokes (and her baby bump) in a Peter Pilotto Fall 2013 satin frock, worn with a Rachel Zoe statement cuff and thick strappy Etro shoes. With its abstract expressionist mood, this was nearly like a Mark Rothko painting put onto a dress. Casual blonde waves and a sweep of sky-blue eye liner completed the artistic look.

Aimee Teegarden: The ‘Star-Crossed’ actress must have gotten the art memo, too, as her romper was a study in watercolour prints. The rush of swirling hues was exhilarating; so too was the pop of neon-blue from the pumps and her coral lippie. I just wish her ‘do had carried the same exuberance, as it seemed to fall flat.

Nina Dobrev: Our favourite TV vamp was obviously still channeling a touch of punk attitude from last week’s Met Gala. The newly single star turned up the volume in a blue body-con dress by Versace that featured a punch of black leather, grommets and metal. Shiny platinum Rupert Sanderson ‘Elba’ heels added a final flourish.

AnnaSophia Robb: The young Carrie Bradshaw gave us a peek (literally) of her big-city style with this Katie Ermilio design that featured no fewer than three of the hottest trends of late: stripes, mismatched patterns and midriff cutouts. With so much happening in her dress, she kept the rest of the styling straightforward with minimal accessories, including a pair of Sorellina butterfly earrings and metallic Casadei pumps. Side-swept pin curls sent this look straight to the ’50s while lavender eye shadow added a youthful, fun edge.

With such a variety of styles, who was your top-dressed starlet of the four?

Bella Thorne In Katie Ermilio – ‘Iron Man 3′ LA Premiere

Bella Thorne In Katie Ermilio - 'Iron Man 3' LA Premiere

Bella Thorne attended the Walt Disney Pictures premiere of ‘Iron Man 3′ held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

The young actress wore a Katie Ermilio Spring 2013 ensemble for the occasion.

While I love that she opted for this two-piece printed look with a peplum skirt, I wish the skirt was much shorter as worn by Jamie King. However, I love that she continues to experiment with different styles; the strapless dresses were starting to become a bit repetitive.

I am not sure why Bella opted to wear such an opulent, colourful necklace, because it is totally lost against the print of her pleated-sleeved crop top.

Beauty-wise, she opted for a soft orange lip colour and what’s becoming her signature top knot, with a bright-yellow manicure completing her look.

When it comes to footwear, she can do better.

Michelle Williams In Katie Ermilio – Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball

Michelle Williams also opted for a barely there, natural makeup look on the red carpet for the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball, held at the Rockefeller Center in New York City yesterday evening.

She selected a look by up-and-coming designer Katie Ermilio.

Michelle’s navy-blue Spring 2012 floor-length sleeveless frock, with a skirt featuring exaggerated pointy hips, was perfect in length.

My first reaction was “why not the fuchsia dress?” but on reflection I feel this navy colour suits the mood of the event perfectly.

Like everyone else at this event, Michelle dazzled in Tiffany jewels.

Would you have preferred the fuchsia dress?

Olivia Palermo In Katie Ermilio – New Year’s in April: A Fool’s Fete

Olivia Palermo In Katie Ermilio - New Year's in April A Fool's Fete

Olivia Palermo attended New Year’s in April: A Fool’s Fete last night in New York City.

For the charity event, the socialite wore a vibrant Katie Ermilio Spring 2013 gown.

She accessorized with Jimmy Choo ‘Dream’ sandals, a Jimmy Choo ‘Charlize’ clutch, a Zara belt, and a vintage necklace.

While the color is perfect for spring, and the high-to-low hemline is right on trend, the look is quite heavy, and Olivia looks disheveled.

A shorter front hem, like that on the model, would have helped to lighten things up to some extent, but all that fabric, accessories and the detailed ankle-strap sandals is just all too much.

Olivia Palermo In Katie Ermilio – 34th Moscow Film Festival

Olivia Palermo was on hand to help celebrate the start of the 34th Moscow Film Festival in Russia last week.

As the face of Spanish jewellery brand Carrera y Carrera, who sponsor the event, Olivia graced the red carpet wearing a Katie Ermilio ensemble, a brand we were first introduced to via Brooklyn Decker during her ‘Battleship’ promo tour.

Olivia paired a bright blue blouse with high-waisted reversible shorts, with a black vintage blazer thrown over her shoulders.

A feathered clutch, which Olivia seems to favour, plus a stack of lust-worthy accessories, as always, enhanced Olivia’s look.

I was delighted to see her wearing the same Tibi ‘Amber’ heels which I own.

This is perfect from head-to-toe.

What do you think?

05.04.12 Photocall

Brooklyn Decker In Katie Ermilio – ‘Battleship’ Seoul Press Conference

Brooklyn Decker was back on the road promoting her new movie ‘Battleship’, this time without Rihanna in Seoul, South Korea earlier today.

A the press conference she looked as chic as always wearing a Katie Ermilio Fall 2011 dress.

Her red dress with an asymmetrical/draped skirt was accented with a neon pink belt.

I would have loved to have seen her wearing this look without the Dolce & Gabbana black blazer, but it does add a lot of sophistication to the look.

Once again she puts a smile on my face with her shoe choice.

This time she opted for the Christian Louboutin ‘Bis Un Bout’ ankle-strap heels that she first wore to the Madrid photocall.
