Who Wore Rodarte Better? Keira Knightley, Kristen Dunst or Jennifer Lopez

Keira Knightley and Kristen Dunst are huge fans of Rodarte, so the biggest surprise of this trio is Jennifer Lopez wearing this bronze bow accented Rodarte mini dress.

Keira wore the dress when she posed for the cover of Empire’s 20 Anniversary issue shot by Adrian Green, with fellow Brit actor James McAvoy.

Without a pout in sight, the actress wore her dress with black pointy heels.

All eyes were on Kristen Dunst when took her front row seat at the Rodarte Spring 2010 presentation last month.

She paired her dress with tight black tights despite the soaring heat during New York Fashion Week, plus black pumps.

Jennifer Lopez arrived at the “Fiesta Latina” event at the White House pairing her dress with matching strappy sandals and a box clutch.

Despite the fact that I was initially critical of Jennifer’s decision to wear this dress, her legs look amazing plus I much prefer her shoe choice so she wins for me.

This dress is available to purchase in a midnight blue print version from Collette for €2,635/£2,402.46/$3,917.98

Rodarte vs. Bebe

Some things you just don’t try to recreate.

A Michael Jackson classic hit is a perfect example. My second example would’ve been a Rodarte dress, but Bebe have created this silk shred party dress which bears a striking resemblance to a dress from the Rodarte Spring 2009 collection.

They both have a mesh bodice, bands of silk wrapped around the bodice, and a chiffon two-tone skirt.

As always the difference is the price. The Bebe dress cost $229, whereas the Rodarte dress would probably set you back about five figures.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Kate Bosworth & Amanda Seyfried

After a long battle between Leighton Meester and Kate Bosworth, Kate was finally voted your Best Dressed this week.

Kate looked radiant, graceful and chic wearing a nude Rodarte dress to a dinner in London.  You admired her overall neutral look, and her complementary accessories.  Many of you commented that she wore the dress, whereas Emma Watson was worn by her Rodarte dress.

I was captivated by Amanda Seyfried, in her Peter Pilotto dress. It was colourful, bejeweled, and had an interesting series of drapes on either side of her hips.

I loved her accessories, especially those strappy gladiator heels.

Rodarte Private Dinner

Last night Kate Bosworth was the hosted for an intimate dinner for the Laura and Kate Mulleavy, who make up the design duo for Rodarte.

The dinner took place at Harvey Nichols in London.

The host glowed wearing a nude ethereal dress, from the Spring 2009 collection, which had a leather pleated skirt, and a knit bodice and sleeves. Her subtle accessories included an elegant apricot clutch, and gold peep-toes.

The neutral theme continued to her flawless make-up.

Emma Watson was by far my favourite of the two, wearing a deconstructed black, blue and white Spring 2009 dress, with two tone Chanel Spring 2009 Couture ankle strap heels.

The blue and the black skirt of Emma’s dress, reminds me of the Rodarte gown which Reese Witherspoon wore to the Oscars this year.

Emma totally owns her look, without appearing to try too hard, as many may have tried to interpret the look.

I glad neither was prepared to follow Rihanna and wear the leather cut-out thigh highs.

Runway To “Keyshia Cole’s Concert” – Monica In Rodarte

Keyshia Cole is currently on tour to promote her latest album ‘A Different Me’.

Last week Ciara and Monica joined her backstage in Atlanta. Monica was there to perform her latest single ‘Trust’ with Keyshia.

Showing Rihanna that she’s not the only R&B diva to wear Rodarte, Monica wore a nude sliced leather sleeveless Rodarte Spring 2009 top, with a mesh panel, plus a pair of jeans, and Gucci Iman ankle strap sandals.

It’s interesting to see the shift in some R&B diva’s style, since Rihanna started wearing designers like Balmain and Rodarte.

06.05.09 In Her Closet

In Rihanna’s Closet – Rodarte Leather Cut-Out Thigh Highs


I can guarantee at least 80% of you did exactly what I did, when I saw this picture of Rihanna – roll your eyes.

I’m mean really, after her Costume Institute Gala disaster you would think she would ease up on her ear piercing screams of “I AM FASHION”, but nooooooo.

Yesterday the singer left her hotel in New York, wearing a head turning ensemble.

Her look included shades, black leather jacket, denim shorts, peep-toes booties, gloves, an ear-to-ear necklace-like earrings, and Rodarte leather cut-out thigh highs.


You may recognise these cut-out thigh highs, as they were presented in the Rodarte Spring 2009 collection. You would be forgiven if you thought they were leggings.

You can buy these thigh highs from the Opening Ceremony website in the same black, white, and tan runway colours for $920.

Exhibition Fetish by David Lynch & Christian Louboutin


Dasha Zhukova, the co-founder of fashion label Kova & T, and the new Editor-in-Chief of Pop magazine, looked stunning, as usual, at this event.

The sultry brunette wore a white and lilac Rodarte Spring 2009 halter neck dress, with metallic Louboutin’s.

I must say I prefer the look with the cropped leather jacket below, but she does have the style and grace to pull off such an overpowering dress.


Unlike the last time Julia Restoin-Roitfeld wore a Balmain mini dress, she opted out of wearing tights, but that’s probably because this Spring 2009 dress is longer.

Like in Lucy Liu’s Vogue China editorial, Julia didn’t wear the runway belt, which quite frankly goes against the dress.

I love the hot pink colour, the embellishments between the criss-cross details, and the sexy silhouette this dress gives her, but I really dislike the Miu Miu heels.

They feel so clumsy with this outstanding dress. The dress deserved better.


Boutique owner Aizel Trudel, wore that stunning green sequined Balmain knock-out dress we first saw on Jennifer Connelly at the He’s Just Not That Into You LA premiere.

Thankfully her tights are sheer. Opaque tights would have killed this look.
