30.09.09 In Her Closet

In Leighton Meester’s Closet – Lanvin and Proenza Schouler

The Late Show With David Letterman, New York

Arriving at the Ed Sullivan theater for her appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, Leighton Meester looked divine wearing a grey silk Lanvin Spring 2009 one-shoulder top with black high-waisted pants.

She paired her look with an Azzedine Alaia wide double layered belt, grey Christian Louboutin metallic ‘Ronda Dina’ platforms whilst carrying a grey Louis Vuitton Biseta clutch.

When Leighton departed the Ed Sullivan theater she had changed into a Proenza Schouler ivory jumpsuit, which was belted and had an exposed zipper.

You may recognise her stunning red Brian Atwood red pumps, which were featured in Graeme Black’s Spring 2010 presentation during London Fashion Week.

She also carried a Proenza Schouler Resort 2010 orange and black trimmed bag.

On The Gossip Girl Set, New York

We’ll have to wait until this episode airs, but I think under her robe Leighton is wearing the same Oscar de la Renta Fall 2009 gold and chestnut dress we saw on Anna Wintour recently.

Another day on set Leighton was spotted wearing a very expensive Oscar de la Renta embroidered stretch cashmere sweater with a cute fly away floral skirt.

Wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim dress and a leather jacket, Leighton carried a Mulberry Daria leather satchel.

Whilst picking out some new thread with her stylist Logan Horne, Leighton looked very casual wearing a Riller and Fount top, with her Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony boots and a Current Elliott Sleeveless JJ vest.

All caught up on Leighton.  Kate Beckinsale and Rihanna to follow at some stage.

The Best From The Front Row @ New York Fashion Week

Thakoon

Ciara was easily one of my favourites at Fashion Week.

She looked so beautiful wearing a Thakoon wool crepe shift dress which had a contrast black chiffon lining and trim, paired with Louboutin pumps.

Donna Karan

Milla Jovovich’s striped Donna Karan Resort 2009 dress is so chic paired with silver pumps.

Altuzarra

I guess Altuzarra weren’t loaning out clothes for their star guests because Leighton Meester wore an eggplant Emilio de la Morena Fall 2009 dress with Proenza Schouler lace-up ankle boots…

…whilst Rachel McAdams wore a navy and white striped Boy by Band of Outsiders Spring 2010 skirt with a black top.

Charlotte Ronson

Jessica Stroup wore a flirty floral Charlotte Ronson Spring 2010 strapless dress which is so exclusive it wasn’t even seen in the Spring 2010 presentation.

She paired her dress with snake-skin strappy sandals.

Marc Jacobs

Lady GaGa wears the same Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 black cap sleeved dress embellished with jeweled stones, which Miss Piggy wore recently.

I wonder who the winner of that WWIB poll will be?

Tommy Hilfiger

I just love this red dress which Taylor Swift pairs with Stuart Weitzman black bow heels.

So vibrant.

Preen

Becki Newton wore a Preen Mixed Mono dress under a black blazer.

I would’ve loved to have seen this dress without the blazer to see more of its multi-print panel design.

Proenza Schouler

Leighton Meester doesn’t look to happy in her Proenza Schouler Resort 2010 ensemble and I don’t blame her.

Max Azria

Lucy Liu was elegant and classy as always wearing a cream fitted Max Azria dress.

Maggie Q’s Max Azria vibrant yellow dress really pops on her.

I love how she brings this strapless draped dress to life.

Before The Runway – Dasha Zhukova In Proenza Schouler Spring 2010

Pop magazine had a relaunch party in New York last week, where Dasha Zhukova made her first public appearance since she announced she was having her first baby with Billionaire boyfriend Roman Abramovich.

No one could id who the designer of her cute babydoll dress was – which cleverly covered her baby bump – but after the Proenza Schouler Spring 2010 show yesterday, it became clear that her dress was from that collection.

I’m very much on the fence with this look.

I love the colours and her lilac heels, but I have a lot of problems with the shape of the skirt which looks better on the model.

Although it’s cute, I’m not sure if it’s particularly flattering.

Dasha and Kristen Stewart so far are the only one’s lucky enough to wear a Spring 2010 look before the runway show.

Runway To Music Video Shoot – Whitney Houston In Proenza Schouler

For those who didn’t know WHITNEY’S BACK.

Yesterday her Whitney Houston’s highly-anticipated new album, “I Look To You” when on sale, and she made an appearance on “Good Morning America”.

This weekend singer was spotted leaving her trailer on her way to the set of her latest video shoot in New York.

She appears to have turned back the clock about 20 years, sporting a curly do whilst wearing the sequined version of the Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2009 dress we also saw Amber Valletta wear to the Women In Film’s 2009 Crystal and Lucy Awards.

The singer paired her dress with Sigerson Morrison boots and a huge smile.

Whitney graces the cover of Ebony Magazine’s October 2009 issue. She opens up about shedding her excess baggage and her rise and fall in the industry.

On her life journey and battles: “I shed a lot of stuff, a lot of unnecessary weight in the last three or four years. I left a lot of old luggage behind, and when I did, the blessings just started pouring on me, and the light in my spirit started to lift again.”

Runway To A Magazine Launch Party – Chloe Sevigny In Proenza Schouler

In New York last night Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez – the Proenza Schouler designers – threw a fabulous party to celebrate the lauch of the 9th edition of ‘A Magazine’, which they created.

Fashion darling Chloe Sevigny was the guest of honour as she graces the cover.

The actress was wearing a leather jumpsuit from the Proenza Schouler Spring 2009 collection, without the sleeveless white shirt it was presented with on the runway.

I want to start off my saying I don’t like Chloe’s hair. Nearly every look of hers is let down by her hair. I’m dying for her to cut some kind of style into it.

I’m really surprised that Chloe opted out of the white shirt, as the look is more quirky with the shirt and looking quirky is very much her thing.

Overall I think I respect her for wearing a leather jumpsuit in summer and marginally pulling it off, more than liking the look itself.

Runway To “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” New York Premiere – Emma Watson In Proenza Schouler

This is the second time Emma Watson has worn a piece from the Proenza Schouler Resort 2010 collection on the red carpet for her new movie “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”.

The first time was when she attended the London photocall.

That dress was cute with a drop waist and a bejeweled neckline, for this occasion she opted for something a bit more adventurous.

She opted for this quite sexy haltered leather Proenza Schouler Resort 2010 dress with a black bodice, and a white skirt plus black strappy heels from the same collection.

This look might be a bit much for her die-hard young fans, but I love it.

It’s unexpected, it’s fresh, it’s risqué without being tacky. I don’t get a sense that she’s trying to be anyone else. Under all that leather she’s still Emma Watson.

I love the blown out hair. This was something that was missing from her other appearances.

I’ve been really impressed with all of her choices this week. They’ve been effortless, mature, tasteful and sophisticated.

Runway To JET Nightclub – Christina Milian In Proenza Schouler

I was surprised we didn’t see more of the Proenza Schouler Spring 2009 collection on celebs because the pieces were edgy yet sophisticated. I imagined Rihanna, Chloe Sevigny or Jennifer Connelly to wear them but it never happened.

This weekend Christian Milian surprised me by wearing a Proenza Schouler black leather bustier dress with contrast mint green silk skirt, when she arrived at JET Nightclub in Las Vegas to watch her boyfriend aka The Dream perform a live set.

I’m firstly glad Christian has eased up on that garish platinum blonde hair she was sporting a few weeks ago. The highlights are less harsh.

I really love the dress from the contrasting colours and fabrics which mixes the rough leather with the smooth silk, plus I like the exposed zipper.

But I hate that silver chain she has worn with the dress as a belt, and the shoes are so hideous.

How can she wear such a cutting edge dress with such tired leopard print heels? *wonders*
