Celebrities Love…Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte Pumps

We all know celebs love the safe reliability of Christian Louboutin, Brian Atwood and Sergio Rossi heels, but they also love edgier footwear like these Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte pumps from the Spring 2010 collection.

I think these corroded brass pumps look quite dangerous.

I have enough trouble trying walking in heels as it is without adding a brass metal spiked heel into the mix.

The pumps also feature a metallic leather upper with cut outs, a slightly pointed toe with metal plating and a brass covered platform.

Fashion risk-takers like Kelly Rowland, Rihanna and Dasha Zhukova have been spotted wearing them as well as Kim Kardashian who will jump on any bandwagon.

If you fancy these bad boys in your closet you can purchase them from Luisa via Roma.

2010 Met Costume Institute Gala – Kirsten Dunst In Rodarte for Gap

The Mulleavy sisters created a stunning white Rodarte for Gap gown for Kirsten Dunst.

Kristen looked exquisite as she glided down the red carpet at the Costume Institute Gala last night.

The white one-shoulder gown had a embroidered chiffon skirt and a fluffy detail on the shoulder.

I’m not crazy about the white shoes, white socks combo but everything else is amazing so that can just be overlooked.

Runway To 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards – Mia Wasikowska In Rodarte

Wash Out Award
Mia Wasikowska arrived on the red carpet at the 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards wearing quite an edgy look.

Unfortunately it doesn’t work for me.

You may think I going to groan about the tights, but on this occasion I’m more disappointed with the colour of her Rodarte Fall 2009 dress.

The grey totally washes her out. Had she worn slightly more visible make-up this wouldn’t have been the case.

This is a shame because she’s one of the few I think could pull off Rodarte.

I also think she should’ve followed Carey Mulligan’s lead by freshening up her pixie haircut.

Social Events Of The Weekend

9th Annual New York Times Arts & Leisure Weekend, New York

Natalie Portman has done something many of us wish we could have done…got our hands on the Rodarte for Target collection.

The petite actress wore a mustard slip dress, with a cute tulle overlay and a bow details on the shoulders which was featured in Teen Vogue.

She covered up wearing a black belted cardigan, whilst completing her look with Stella McCartney booties.

Natalie’s dress is now sold out, but you can find other pieces on from this collection on Target’s website.

Theatre Royal, London

Anna Friel was spotted leaving the Theatre Royal in London after her final performance of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” looking sensational wearing a Herve Leger Resort 2010 black and white bandage dress.

Like most of us in London she sported a (faux) fur coat in a bid to keep warm.

2010 NBC Universal’s Press Tour Cocktail Party, LA

When I saw this pretty pink Elise Øverland Resort 2010 dress on Melanie Brown, I was considering giving her a first ever compliment.

On reflection everything feels heavily weighted to the right with her one-sleeved dress and side-swept bun.

Also the necklace was so unnecessary with this pretty dress.

Close…but no Zig-a-zig-ha.

Dior Cocktails For Marion Cotillard And “Nine”, New York

Miss Dior aka Marion Cotillard looked beautiful wearing a silver lurex Christian Dior dress, which reminds me of the dress Charlize Theron wore last year.

I love the dress and the ruby pumps, but not so keen on the poodle perm.

“Leap Year” New York Premiere

A Pea In A Pod is the usual destination for expectant celebrities, but Amy Adams has Ms. Carolina Herrera on speed-dial.

The designer has reworked pieces from her current collections to create a custom-made wardrobe for Amy which included this red silk georgette dress.

I guess Ms. Herrera has found her new muse. Amy is glowing.

How I Met Your Mother`s 100th Episode Celebration, LA

Alyson Hannigan – the People’s Choice Favorite TV Actress – walked the red carpet wearing a BCBG printed dress with a cascading ruffle front.

She kept her accessories simple adding black clutch and Jimmy Choo “Lace” black patent sandals.

Rodarte for Target


The Rodarte’s range for Target is a collaboration that I just love.

The tulle dresses are especially perfect for the party season and the sequin leopard print pieces will bring some wow factor to your wardrobe.

This range screams edgy attitude (which Rodarte do so well) and there is something for everyone.

Prices vary from $9.99 – $79.99 and I think it’s amazing that Target are offering such great designer pieces at affordable prices.

I want a pair of those net leggings!

I love the way that many of the looks have been cinched in with the pretty bow belts too.

You’ll be able to snap up these stylish bargains on target.com and in Target stores from December 20.

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

Jessica Szohr wore the blue print version of this Thakoon Spring 2010 dress to this prestigious event.

I’m glad she picked the darker colour, as I would love to see the lighter print saved for the Spring.

Strappy booties and tamed sleek straight hair complete this look.

What? No ankle boots?

Alexa Chung looks really cute wearing a red Jason Wu Spring 2010 dress with a ruffled neckline.

I love those bold red lips.  It’s very rare that we see her wearing make-up.

Ballet flats complete the look, but I’m also missing the black runway waist belt.

Cassie looked really good on this occasion.

The singer donned an off-the-shoulder black and gold striped Brian Reyes draped dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

The dress was paired with open-toe booties.

Georgina Chapman wore a black Marchesa Fall 2009 dress, which has an intricate embroidered detail all over.

The designer paired her dress with the same Christian Louboutin for Marchesa lace ankle boots as the runway model, plus a black clutch from her Spring 2010 collection.

Coco Rocha looked fierce in wearing this Rodarte Spring 2009 black and white dress on the runway, but Karen Elson softens the look by adding black pumps and bouncy curls.

Many of you hated Nicole Kidman’s last L’Wren Scott dress at the CMA’s.

On this occasion she wore a stunning ivory Lanvin tulle lace gown.

Her boobs aren’t squashed, she not too washed out, the black sash tied to the waist is adorably accented with a white rose.

Love it or hate it?
