Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Proenza Schouler Cocktail Party Hosted by Barneys New York

Barneys New York hosted a dinner party to toast designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler in Los Angeles, California on Thursday evening, inviting along some of their favourite red carpet gals to celebrate the launch of their ‘First Collection’ capsule available exclusively at Barneys New York and Barneys.com.

Kate Bosworth: Often one of the first to get her hands on the latest Proenza Schouler collection, whether it be the clothing or accessories, the actress sported a ecru printed tulle tweed short-sleeved dress from the designers’ Fall 2013 collection, which she styled with a black lizard Proenza Schouler ‘Lunch’ bag and Aldo ‘Romelia’ pumps. Is it me or does this dress appear to be a size too big? Or maybe it just needed a waist-defining belt.

Kirsten Dunst: The actress – who was the first person to bring the Proenza Schouler Fall 2013 collection to the red carpet – is the first to bring the designers’ Resort 2014 collection to the red carpet, wearing a black satin back crepe top and black viscose shorts with black Proenza Schouler pumps, adding a hot-red lip colour.

Rashida Jones: The ‘Parks and Recreation’ actress amped up her Proenza Schouler black ostrich printed georgette dress with a beautiful ethnic statement necklace. Like Kirsten, she opted for a bright lip colour and black Proenza Schouler python printed pumps from the Fall 2013 collection.

You may be surprised to learn that Kirsten is my favourite here.

Models @ 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Some of our favourite cat-walkers were among the mix of style royalty at the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City. The models definitely had their moment last night, strutting out a slew of bold-name designers and even bolder looks to match.

Adriana Lima: Donning a leggy and luxe Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy Fall 2013 confection, this Brazilian beauty did justice to the edgy designer—who was the CFDA International Award Winner—even with black bloomers peeking through the gown. A center-parted ‘do and glowing makeup finished the look. Fellow model Joan Smalls rocked a similar Givenchy sheer design at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala. Who do you think wore it best?

Miranda Kerr: This model mom made waves with a retro-modern frock by Proenza Schouler. The square neckline and fit-and-flare shape were nothing if not fun and provided the perfect palette for the trippy, painterly cerulean and verdigris hues. More sophistication came with a classic pair of black, triple ankle-wrap Stuart Weitzman heels, Jennifer Meyer jewels and a silver Stuart Weitzman clutch, along with a fuchsia lippie and low bun.

Joan Smalls: The lovely Latina wore a breezy white, strapless Givenchy gown. The matte white panel on the bottom created a sort of casual, sundress feel. But upon closer inspection, it was anything but beach-y with a corseted bodice and sheer lace-embellished skirt. The glittering choker-necklace added a daring, darker note.

Met Gala 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening. Models @ The Met post will follow.

Brooklyn Decker: The actress wore a custom Peter Pilotto look inspired by the Spring 2013 collection. While the look is custom I feel like I have seen this look several times before, so there is nothing fresh or new about it, unlike other custom looks as showcased by Karolina Kurkova and several others. Her Sergio Rossi ‘Hypnos’ sandals, however, are a work of art.

Alicia Keys: The singer took to the red carpet wearing a custom Jason Wu gown. Her black leather and bordeaux sequin embroidered halter gown is beautiful, but I wish Alicia had pushed the punk vibe with the styling a bit more; the red streaks in her hair aren’t enough for me, especially when we know Alicia isn’t afraid of taking a fashion risk. Robert Lee Morris jewels and a vintage clutch completed her look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress wore a beautiful custom Calvin Klein scarlet gown for the occasion which was punked up as far as she would go with a studded choker and a Tod’s black studded clutch with a gold frame. While I do love this look, I wish Maggie had gone bra shopping before this event.

Chloe Sevigny In Proenza Schouler - 2013 Met Gala

The one person who I thought would’ve nailed the punk theme for Monday night’s 2013 Met Gala was Chloe Sevigny.

She proved me wrong.

The style maven, who’s known to take a fashion risk or two (didn’t she once have a punk phase?), opted for a long-sleeved Proenza Schouler Fall 2013 gown.

While this is a great look, it feels so wrong for the occasion and let’s face it, it’s a lazy effort.

The most punk rock thing about this look is the slashed detail.

And I’m over the Met Gala turban; been there and preferred that when Kate Moss and Karolina Kurkova rocked it.

Andrea Riseborough In Proenza Schouler - ‘Disconnect’ New York Special Screening

Andrea Riseborough joined Paula Patton on the red carpet last night, attending the ‘Disconnect’ New York Special Screening held at SVA Theater following her short stint promoting her other movie, ‘Oblivion’.

The British actress wore a Proenza Schouler Spring 2013 dress.

Her pleated frock had a lot going on, featuring black-and-white chequered, solid electric-blue, photoprinted ‘protestor print’ and ‘forest print’ panels.

Opting to let the dress take centre stage, she added a gold cuff, a black clutch and black ankle-strap Proenza Schouler python pumps to her look.

Sporting a dewy glow with glossy lips, tousled locks provided the finishing touches to her look.

Saoirse Ronan In Proenza Schouler -  'The Host' New York Premiere

Saoirse Ronan joined co-star Diane Kruger on the red carpet at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City last night for a screening of ‘The Host’.

As the lead actress in this movie, she was sure to stand out in this Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2013 dress, which was presented in the look book as a coat.

Her blue tweed jacquard short-sleeved dress featured an asymmetrical black leather trim and a black leather belt to nip in her waist.

I’m intrigued to see how her Monique Lhuillier blue-and-black sandals would’ve worked with this look, as Saoirse opted for black Christian Louboutin cut-out ankle boots.

The young actress continues to work a fresh-faced look with her blonde tresses teased into a wavy hairstyle.

Do you prefer this look over the LA premiere?
