Who Wore Rachel Roy Better? Iman or Michelle Obama

Despite many of you not sharing my enthusiasm for Iman’s Rachel Roy Fall 2010 look. It looks like Michelle Obama did.

The American First Lady wore the same Rachel Roy velvet skirt when she and her husband attended a glittering banquet held by Indian President Pratibha Patil at the presidential house Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi on Monday night.

Mrs O paired her skirt with a Rachel Roy Moroccan tunic and a bejeweled waistband.

This is a week after Iman wore the same skirt to the 2010 Ace Awards in New York City.

The supermodel teamed her skirt with a head-to-toe Rachel Roy look which included a rust jacket, a matching jersey bodysuit, Rachel Roy for Manolo Blahnik heels and RACHEL Rachel Roy and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

I think both women look fantastic but I have to give this to Iman as I love the colour of her look.

Iman In Rachel Roy – 2010 Ace Awards

Iman joined Olivia Palermo on the red carpet at the 2010 Ace Awards in New York City last night.

The supermodel who just refuses to age looked gorgeous wearing a Rachel Roy Fall 2010 ensemble.

I’m so in love with her rusty version of this look. It works so well with her colouring.

Her look included a jacket, a jersey bodysuit and a velvet maxi skirt.

Rachel Roy for Manolo Blahnik heels and RACHEL Rachel Roy and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry completed this typically perfect look.

Rachel Roy Spring 2011

Rachel Roy’s Spring 2011 collection was very versatile, wearable with a few red carpet worthy pieces included too.

Her collection embodied modern elegance with fabulous colour combinations and shapes.

With so many collections going neutral, Rachel will add both solids and patterns ranged between bold jewel tones like aqua blue, cobalt, teal and beetroot.

We saw day dresses, cocktail dresses, A-line skirts, pleated skirts, a peplum bustier over cotton shirt paired with cropped pants, two toned jacquard knit dress and tailored jackets.

With the clothes being so bright, there wasn’t much focus on accessories, but the models did all wear Rachel Roy multi-coloured heels.

Rachel Roy also presented a collection of trench coats.

The traditional coat got a make over from the designer.

There was many interesting twist, folds, pleats and one was sequined.

Front Row: Russell Simmons and Tiffani Amber Thiessen

Favourites: Aqua cascade gown and the aqua silk top with the cobalt pleated skirt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Hilary Rhoda, Tyra Banks, Olivia Palermo, Keke Palmer, Kelly Rowland, Veronica Webb and Michelle Monaghan

2010 Cosmetic Executive Women Beauty Awards

I did a double double take whilst viewing the red carpet pics for the “2010 Cosmetic Executive Women Beauty Awards” which was held in New York on Friday night.

Kim Kardashian and Selita Ebanks both attended wearing looks we’ve seen before on the red carpet.

Kim carried a scary looking Christian Louboutin Talita spiked clutch whilst wearing a coral Rachel Roy Resort 2010 dress we’ve seen worn by Tyra Banks.

The model and TV presenter wore it when she attended the “36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” back in August last year.

Selita wore the same Victoria Beckham Spring 2010 dress which the designer herself wore back in September last year, when she attended the Fashion East show during London Fashion Week.

Tyra and Victoria both look better.

Kim clearly ripped off this look right down to the choice of heels, whereas Selita lets herself down with the cheap looking clutch.

NYLON Young Hollywood Party – Whitney Port In Rachel Roy

Whitney Port arrived at the NYLON Young Hollywood Party at the Roosevelt Hotel in LA last night with her boyfriend Ben Nemtin.

As much as Olivia Palermo likes to take sly digs at Whitney’s style, I think she looked really good at this event.

“The City” star wore a stunning sunshine yellow Rachel Roy Spring 2010 draped dress.

I love this dress on her because she has the height to pull it off, its a beautiful burst of colour and it’s so different to what she normally wears.

As much as I hate handbags on the red carpet, her one doesn’t ick me too much as I’m glad she didn’t wear it as a cross-over bag.

What I love most about her look are her open-toe Giuseppe Zanotti shoes which are covered in colourful embellishments.
