2012 CFDA Fashion Awards Round Up

Shala Monroque: The socialite gaves us a double preview. The first her; cute bangs, the second is her Jason Wu Resort 2013 dress. The collection is yet to go live on Style.com yet this is our fourth look at the collection following Karlie Kloss, Diane Kruger and Jessica Stam. Shala’s look features a black knit top with white botanical beaded collar teamed with a black silk zibeline skirt with white botanical degrade beading. I have to say it is my favourite look from the collection so far. Black satin pumps and a Jason Wu ‘Karlie’ embroidered box clutch completed her look.

Heather Graham: The actress wore a custom cornflower-blue Nicole Miller gown with Nicole Miller shoes, Pamela Love jewelry and an embellished Marchesa clutch. I love the earthy, boho feel to this look.

Rachel Zoe: The stylist/designer wore her favourite colour: black, but it’s a sparkler as she dazzled in head-to-toe sequins.

Solange Knowles In Rachel Roy – 2012 Met Gala

Solange Knowles joined her big sister Beyonce on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala, held in New York City on Monday night.

Typically one for the dramatics, Solange kept her look relatively simple in a gorgeous canary-yellow Rachel Roy dress with peplum detailing.

Walking the red carpet alongside the designer, Solange accessorized the strapless gown with a silver-and-gold Edie Parker ‘Flavia’ clutch, Jennifer Fisher jewels, Sergio Rossi heels and her signature fro.

I love this look on Solange. It may be simple, but she still completely stands out in a non-attention-grabbing way, putting her older sister in her shade.

Flawless.

So after 12 pages of red carpet looks, who would you put in your top 10?

Cameron Diaz In Rachel Roy – 2012 Pioneer Of The Year Dinner Honoring DreamWorks

The last time we saw Cameron Diaz on the red carpet was at the Oscars, but she made a return to the limelight by attending the Pioneer of the Year Award Ceremony during CinemaCon 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada on Wednesday.

Sticking to a simple, chic approach to red carpet dressing, the actress wore a black Rachel Roy dress.

Her black dress with an asymmetrical neck and hemline was styled with Lanvin ankle-strap wedges.

Cameron’s fitted dress was teamed with a gold chain link Cartier necklace and a bright red lip colour.

I suppose this look is OK for what it is, but I still miss the old Cameron D – desperately.

9th Annual Spring Dinner Dance New Year’s In April: A Fool’s Fete

Many more supermodels joined Coco Rocha and Crystal Renn on the red carpet for the 9th Annual Spring Dinner Dance New Year’s In April: A Fool’s Fete, hosted by New Yorkers for Children, which raised over $580,000 last night.

Doutzen Kroes: The model was surprisingly one of the few who opted out of wearing a gown to don a Rachel Roy ensemble. A purple keyhole top with an open back and a black leather cummerbund was teamed with super long flared pants. An Alaia perforated leather clutch completed her look.

Jessica White: The Maybelline model did an ‘Angelina’ by making sure we all got a look at her leg via the split in her Diane von Furstenberg sequin wrap gown. She teamed her raspberry gown with a Diane von Furstenberg ‘Tonda’ crystal clutch and cream peep-toes.

Selita Ebanks: I’m really not feeling Selita in this silver embellished gown. It looks like something Mariah Carey would wear. Basically it feels dated. The red clutch does nothing to improve this look.

Erin Heatherton: The model is the third person to wear a Carolina Herrera dress in the last 24 hours following Emily Blunt and Ashley Judd. Her Spring 2012 canary yellow, greige and taupe dot print silk chiffon gown with silver and black beaded embroidery was simply styled with black strappy sandals. It’s so good to see a Victoria’s Secret model wearing something other than a bandage dress.

‘The Killing’ Season 2 Premiere

On Monday, stars took to the red carpet for AMC’s Season 2 premiere of ‘The Killing’ at the ArcLight Cinema in Hollywood, California.

Mireille Enos: The actress wore a graphic floral-print Rachel Roy mini dress with long sleeves, almost as long as her skirt. Giuseppe Zanotti toe-cap pumps and a black clutch completed her look. I love how both accessories complemented her floral-print dress.

Jamie Anne Allman: Wearing a Na Kahn dress, the actress attempted to jazz up her look with a red Camille Zarsky Portfolio clutch. I think the overall look would’ve been made more interesting had the shoes been the ones to have more colour. I currently have nude-pump fatigue.

Kristin Lehman: She wore a Burberry Prorsum tribal-printed dress from the Resort 2012 collection. This look would’ve been much improved without the black jersey sleeves and midriff. Her midi dress was teamed with black ankle-strap pumps. This look is wrong on so many levels. I never thought I would say that about a Burberry look.

2012 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala Red Carpet Round Up

Here are the rest of the looks from the 2012 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala.

Jennifer Morrison: The ‘Once Upon A Time’ actress wore a Kaufmanfranco Fall 2011 gown. Her sexy black gown had a high neckline, but plunged very low at the back. A low ponytail and a black karung Ferragamo minaudière completed her look.

Abigail Spencer: The ‘Cowboys and Aliens’ actress wore a Lela Rose black gown with sparkling crystal embellishments. She added Marina B jewels and gothic-like makeup. I like that she tried something different makeup wise, but I find it too dark and heavy.
