Rita Ora In Prada – Out In New York City

Rita Ora In Prada - Out In New York City

Having recently filmed her upcoming music video in LA last week, Rita Ora was spotted on the East Coast yesterday afternoon strolling the streets of Manhattan in another attention seeking grabbing look.

Joining the Anna Wintour/Lupita Nyong’o Prada-loving family, going by her recent red carpet outings, the British singer wore a Prada Spring 2014 look.

Even though her coat is the commercial version of similar pieces which took to the runway, the pink-white-and-orange yellow-collared coat still had people stopping and staring, but this could also have been due to that ridiculous Anna Dello Russo-esqe red feathered headpiece.

Under her coat she wore a moss-green-and-black striped Prada Spring 2014 ribbed skirt and matching sweater, with a red clutch to match her signature red lip, fishnet tights, shades and black boots completing her look.

I will admit I do like elements of this look – the coat and skirt for example – but the styling is so off key here; nothing really works together.

A classic case of, ‘just because you can doesn’t mean you should’.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lupita Nyong’o In Prada, Kate Hudson In Atelier Versace & Pink In Elie Saab Couture

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lupita Nyong'o In Prada, Kate Hudson In Atelier Versace & Pink In Elie Saab Couture

With so many great looks to hit the red carpet last week you had trouble picking a clear favourite, so the honour was shared between the fairytale Prada gown worn by Lupita Nyong’o and Kate Hudson’s caped creation from Atelier Versace.

I still have goosebumps from Pink’s Elie Saab Couture red embellished gown. Even though I had this on my wish list for Jessica Chastain, the singer looked outstanding in her Oscar performance look.

Lupita Nyong’o In Prada – Oscars 2014

Lupita Nyong’o In Prada - Oscars 2014

Lupita Nyong’o was the one we were all waiting to take the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars held at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Sunday (March 2) in Hollywood, California.

As predicted, the face of Miu Miu wore Prada, gliding down the red carpet wearing a custom light-blue silk georgette soleil pleated gown with a deep V-neck top and low cut sides.

The skirt was enriched with delicate crystal beading on the edges of the pleats to add a sparkle as she posed for the camera.

She completed her look with Fred Leighton jewels, which included an ear cuff, satin Prada platform sandals, and a matching Prada raso clutch with baguette crystal detail, framed in gold – which will look so great alongside that Oscar I hope she wins.

Miucca did her proud. This is a stunning gown. Do you agree?

Lea Seydoux In Prada – Cesar Film Awards 2014

Lea Seydoux In Prada - Cesar Film Awards 2014

Lea Seydoux joined her ‘Blue is the Warmest Color’ co-star Adele Exarchopoulos on the red carpet for the Cesar Awards 2014 in Paris on Friday (February 28).

Opting to wear another Prada gown, this electric blue gown ticks all the right boxes: it’s in my favourite colour and I love the sleek silhouette.

If I was to nitpick, I would remove the bow at the back of her black satin waistband.

Smouldering on the red carpet, but all smiles inside, the French beauty wore Chopard diamond cluster earrings and oval-shaped sapphire ring while working a retro ‘do with fierce blue cat-eyes rounding out her gorgeous look.

Vera Farmiga In Prada – ‘Bates Motels’ Season 2 Premiere

Vera Farmiga In Prada - 'Bates Motels' Season 2 PremiereVera Farmiga returned to the red carpet for the premiere party of A&E’s Season 2 of ‘Bates Motel’ and the series premiere of ‘Those Who Kill,’ held at Warwick in Hollywood, California on Wednesday (February 26).

Reflecting the drama of the show, the actress wore a pretty red Prada silk chiffon pleated dress, enriched with sparkling crystal embroidery at the bodice and waist.

She styled the look quite well with an Emm Kuo metallic snakeskin, raw blacklip shell and mother-of-pearl ‘Kaiss’ minaudiére clutch with gold metal accents. Thankfully, gold and black fishnet pumps took the place of a standard black pair.

An edgy, sharply angled bob and a light rouge lip rounded out this entrance that didn’t require much in the way of jewelry, given the frock’s embellishment and the gloss of the handbag.

Prada looks tend to be hit or miss on the red carpet. How does this one rank?

Rita Wilson In Prada – First Annual Luncheon to Honor The Female Nominees of the 86th Oscars

Rita Wilson In Prada - First Annual Luncheon to Honor The Female Nominees of the 86th Oscars

Rita Wilson attended an intimate luncheon hosted by Diane von Furstenberg, Anne Hathaway and Willow Bay in Los Angeles, California on Tuesday (February 26) to celebrate the year’s female nominees for the 86th annual Academy Awards.

For the second time in a row the actress wore a Prada Resort 2014 dress, and once again I will have to say no, this doesn’t work for me.

While I have no qualms with the busy print, I don’t think the collection is well suited to Rita.

Perhaps going down Naomi Watts’ route of wearing a suit with a bold-printed Prada top would’ve worked better for Rita.
