Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Leighton Meester had a dinner party thrown in her honour by Flaunt Magazine to celebrate her as their latest cover girl at Ink restaurant in West Hollywood, California, last night.

The guest of honour wore a Mary Katrantzou ‘Starbright’ dress from the Fall 2012 collection.

Her black-and-white silk-crepe strapless dress has a hanger print on the bodice and an interesting geometric print on the skirt.

Many of you who hold Leighton in high regard as your ‘shoe goddess’ may be a bit miffed to discover she played it safe with black Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps.

Opting for a fresh-faced look with pink glossy lips, I’m hoping this hairstyle is a faux bob, but the cut is telling me otherwise.

We are yet to see a look from the Mary Katrantzou Spring 2013 collection to hit the red carpet, but I was delighted to see the pieces worn during Paris Fashion Week.

Street-style stars and editors such as Viviana Volpicella, Miroslava Duma, Sofia Sanchez and Elisa Nalin (not pictured) were seen wearing the stamp and banknote pieces, getting the jump on celebs and making the collection even more covetable.

I particularly love Sofia’s look which includes the first pair of jeans designed by Mary Katrantzou.

Each of these three looks is available to pre-order from ModaOperandi.com until October 11.

You can also pre-order a look from the Current/Elliott x Mary Katrantzou exclusive denim capsule collection.

The pieces reflected the motifs of Katrantzou’s Spring 2013 runway show at very affordable prices. This trunkshow ends on October 15.

Jane Krakowski celebrated the final season of ‘30 Rock’ on Wednesday in New York City.

The actress wore a Mary Katrantzou ‘Babelona Darko’ dress from the Fall 2012 collection.

Her bold digitally engineered wildflower-print cap-sleeve A-line dress is a great look for her.

Jane styled the dress really well, adding a red beaded necklace with a blue pendant, a silver watch, and nude YSL ‘Tribute’ platform sandals.

You may remember that Scarlett Johansson wore a sequined version of this dress during her promo tour for ‘The Avengers’.

Hailee Steinfeld was at the Soho House in West Hollywood, California, yesterday evening for the ELLE and Sundance Channel’s “All on the Line with Joe Zoe” celebration.

The young actress wore a Mary Katrantzou Spring 2012 eclectic-print skirt plus a black t-shirt with a gold glasses motif.

Gold accessories, including a chunky chain necklace and Brian Atwood T-bar ‘Bellini’ platform sandals, complemented her look along with a bright yellow Rebecca Minkoff ‘Vincent’ minaudiere. Which is the same one we saw Nikki Reed carrying recently.

Do you like Hailee’s accessories, or would you have opted for a toned-down clutch to make her skirt the focus?

Mary Katrantzou was inspired by global postage stamps and global banknotes, literally, as they were translated into standout prints which took to the runway on Sunday evening.

For Spring 2013 Mary presented a much looser silhouette with trapeze dresses, free-flowing chiffon dress, boxy sleeves, shirt dresses, sleeveless drop-waist maxi dresses, high-volume skirts and blouson sleeve dresses.

The pieces featuring stamps were presented in shades of blue, white and green and with pops of yellow and orange. There was a break from the colourful prints with a glossy dark blue suit and a green vest paired with a pencil skirt before the collection moved on to evening wear.

This is where the banknote prints came to life on a mixed metallic colour palette created with a Swarovski crystal mesh using a pioneering printed glass technique and fused with silk brocades, ensuring these looks will shimmer on the red carpet.

Christian Louboutin created an amazing collection of ankle boots – some were two-tone, others accented with a wavy stamp trim. We also saw strappy ankle-strap sandals.

Front Row: Anna Dello Russo

Favourites: Stamp-print halter dress with a full skirt, the blue suit plus the banknote sleeveless top and cigarette pants.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Elizabeth Banks, Blake Lively, Keira Knightley, Rihanna, Tilda Swinton, Anna Dello Russo, Leelee Sobieski, Solange Knowles and Florence Welch

‘New Girl’ actress Hannah Simone made a bold statement on the red carpet at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards in on Sunday in Universal City, California.

Dressed in a vibrant balalaika print dress from London-based designer Mary Katrantzou, you couldn’t help but notice the young star.

The sleeveless dress with a v-neckline and A-line skirt was styled tan platform peep-toes and an H.Stern ‘Copernicus’ ring.

Beauty-wise she opted for super straight locks and a bright coral lip colour.

For me she was one of the best on the night. Do you agree?
