Red Carpet Fashion Awards

This week I was invited to view the Preen Resort 2013 collection in London.

Of all the Resort 2013 collections, this one stands out the most. Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi were inspired by Jeff Koon paintings, which is why the collection features so many bright pops of colours.

I fell in love with the pieces, which combined Nick Knight photography with digital brushstroke prints.

As always, my first question was, “Have any celebrities been requesting this collection?” and I was excited to learn that they have been inundated with requests, which is not surprising.

Alongside the strong prints, which I’m certain will catch the eye of the colour-loving Mrs Obama, were cute, dainty two-tone jacquard dresses that are perfect for the likes of Michelle Williams, Rachel Bilson, Keira Knightley and Kate Bosworth.

There were also some striped and colour-blocking menswear-inspired suits I can picture on Leelee Sobieski, Chloe Sevigny and Solange Knowles.

Other key pieces included a vibrant floral and striped maxi dress, striped shirts, cropped sweaters, tapered pants, one-shoulder dresses and an eye-popping coral dress with a cropped-top overlay and a sheer beaded inset.

I can’t wait to see how that works on the red carpet.

ModaOperandi.com has just launched the truck show for you to pre-order this collection.

Shop now before it ends on July 9.

On Sunday, following the photocall for Kristen’s latest movie ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, the actress attended a press conference at Arundel Castle in West Sussex, England.

After a selection of dark colours, Kristen brightened things up by wearing a colourful Preen Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

The orange sleeveless belted dress with an electric-blue lace overlay was, not surprisingly, shortened for the actress – I told you we would see many more minis this promo tour.

I was surprised, however, that Kristen paired her dress with a vibrant pair of Stella McCartney heels, when black pumps are usually her shoe of choice.

The pop of blue perfectly complements her look.

Wavy locks and a pink lip colour provides the finishing touches.

Ginnifer Goodwin donned her finest hat and headed to Louisville, Kentucky, for the 138th Kentucky Derby on Saturday afternoon.

The actress wore a Preen Spring 2012 dress with the same colour-block chequered print we saw on Michelle Obama last week.

My first reaction was to dislike this watermelon ¾-sleeve dress, but I realised it was just the chequered-print patch I objected too.

I love the silhouette and the pleated detail on the skirt, which could stand to be an inch or three shorter, but the patch feels so out of place as do her black Ann Taylor pumps with this look.

The only thing I can’t fault is her H&M hat.

This is very disappointing for someone of Ginnifer’s calibre.

Michelle Obama attended the opening ceremony of the 2012 Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Monday.

The First Lady wore a Preen Spring 2012 dress.

Her colour-block chequered dress wasn’t a runway look, but you see several looks from the runway with the same print.

This isn’t the first time Michelle has worn Preen. It seems she’s attracted to their colour pieces and their bold-and-beautiful aesthetic.

She may be wearing kitten heels, which I have been fond of, but I love that they are in a light-blue colour which complements her sleeveless dress as do her pink stone earrings.

Perfection as always.

Prior to Scarlett Johansson’s new movie, ‘The Avengers’ hitting theaters on Friday, the actress received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today in Hollywood, California.

She opted to wear a Preen Fall 2012 look.

The black-and-white look consisted of a daisy print top with a checkered pencil skirt.

I love the retro hairdo, Bulgari studded earrings and the red Christian Louboutin platform peep-toes.

This look is event appropriate and interesting without being too formal or boring.

Just when I had written her off, ScarJo does a complete 180. I LOVE this look.

What do you think?

Marisa Tomei attended the 2012 Brooklyn Artists’ Ball After Party on Wednesday night in New York City.

The actress wore a Preen Fall 2012 dress.

Her black sheer dress with black-and-white floral embroidered throughout also has Swarovski crystal-embellished short sleeves.

Marisa accessorized her stylish dress with an Edie Parker green glittery oval clutch, a ‘Brooklyn’ gold pendant necklace, colourful bracelets, Nicholas Kirkwood booties.

We are used to seeing more colour from Marisa, but those accessories do pop against her dress.

Wavy tresses and a coral lip shade completed her look.
