Front Row @ NYFW Spring 2014

Front Row @ NYFW

The fashionably eclectic front-row styles continue, as New York Fashion Week marches on, with starlets showing up at every turn in their designer best.

Jessica Alba @ Narciso Rodriguez: At Tuesday’s Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2014 fashion presentation at Sir Stage37 in New York City, the actress simply stunned in a Fall 2013 dress from the designer, accessorized with a Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch, wrist cuffs and Rona Pfeiffer square pave stud earrings. I love the sharp, graphic contrast that the black and white styling brings to this look, countered by Jessica’s sleek, straight locks. Even the white pumps couldn’t have been more appropriate.

Rita Ora @ Pyer Moss: The British songstress cropped up at the Pyer Moss Spring 2014 fashion show donning a Sally LaPointe Spring 2014 eggshell lambskin top and skirt, matched with metallic-gold Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps. The asymmetric, one-sleeve detail of the top and the wrapped skirt, not to mention those retro round shades, kept yet another midriff moment fresh and cool.

Iggy Azalea @ Naeem Khan: The rapper attended the Naaem Khan Spring 2014 show on Tuesday at The Theatre at Lincoln Center, where she flaunted the designer’s Resort 2014 black-and-gold wool crepe sheath dress that featured gold baroque beading. Simple pale-pink makeup tones and a platinum topknot juxtaposed the more elaborate vibe of the frock, which ultimately needed a boost that didn’t come with those black pumps.

Katy Perry In Sally LaPointe – The Friars Foundation Annual Applause Award Gala

Katy Perry In Sally LaPointe - The Friars Foundation Annual Applause Award Gala

Parading out a more sophisticated, less spirited exit, Katy Perry was spotted leaving The Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City last night, after attending The Friars Foundation Annual Applause Award Gala.

The American ‘Vogue’ July cover girl slipped into a buttery-peach Sally LaPointe Resort 2014 gown, worn with matching gemstone-embellished Etro sandals.

While the soft, silky shade should have been delicious, it didn’t quite translate as glowingly against Katy’s surprisingly barely-there makeup and jet-black ‘do.

I would have removed the chunky Etro choker necklace, as it was a distracting addition to the high neckline and side shoulder cutouts of the dress.

Of course, the bigger accessory story may be her date, as she was also seen arm-in-arm with ex, John Mayer.

Peachy-keen or no?

Alessandra Ambrosio In Sally LaPointe – 2012 GQ Men of the Year Party

Alessandra Ambrosio attended the 2012 GQ Men of the Year party, held at Chateau Marmont in LA on Tuesday evening.

The Victoria’s Secret model wore a Sally LaPointe Spring 2013 dress.

Her white long-sleeve leather dress with cut-outs at the waist featured a black leather waistband and ivory draped pieces on the skirt.

I like this look on the runway, but it looks a tad wrinkly and possibly too big for Alessandra.

The overall look feels a bit awkward.

She styled her look with black Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ studded pumps and a black satin clutch.

Glossy nude lips and smoky eyes completed the look.

Carrie Underwood’s Eleven Looks From The 2012 CMA Awards

Carrie Underwood had a very busy night co-hosting the 2012 CMA Awards with Brad Paisley at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, last night.

There were 11 looks in total, not counting her Reem Acra red carpet look.

First up the singer wore a Jovani nude fully embellished cocktail dress. Dazzling Jacob & Co. earrings and equally bedazzling Fabi strappy sandals accessorized her look.

I loved her navy Sally LaPointe Fall 2012 peplum dress with a cut-out waist. This isn’t a look we usually see on Carrie; I love the dress but I’m not sure I would’ve styled it with that silver Amrapali statement necklace. The dress is making a loud enough statement on its own. She opted for silver metallic Jerome C. Rousseau sandals for this look.

I’m not sure Carrie needed her Katerina Maxine earrings with this Jenny Packham Spring 2012 dress which already had such a beautiful beaded and embellished bib. What do you think? Silver ankle-strap Gio Diev ‘Palma’ sandals and a Graziela cocktail ring accessorized this look.Read More…

Red Carpet Trends: Peplum Dresses

The night’s biggest trend on the red carpet at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night was peplum dresses.

Charlize Theron (in Lanvin), Emma Stone (in Martin Grant), Emma Watson (in Brood), Julia Jones (in Joy Cioci) and Julianne Hough (in Sally LaPointe) all opted for peplum dresses.

Each look look was very different.

Charlize’s gave us strapless Parisian chic. Stone’s was two-tone and elegant. Watson was sporty, colourful and edgy. Julia popped on the red carpet with a bright neon colour and sharp detailing and Julianne gave us a cut-out version of this trend.

Julianne Hough In Sally LaPointe – 2012 MTV Movie Awards

Julianne Hough attended the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, held in Universal City, California, on Sunday evening.

As a huge fan of Sally LaPointe I was excited to see a dress from her Fall 2012 collection worn on the red carpet, but I can’t help but wish someone like Kat Graham or Emma Watson had worn this dress.

I don’t think Julianne has the chops to pull this look off. She reminds me of a WAG. Access to designer clothes, but she doesn’t have a clue how to make them work for her.

She had body, but brings no edge to the peplum-embroidered look.

Sleek, straight locks, black peep-toes and a pink lip colour provided the finishing touches.

Lady Gaga In Prabal Gurung & Sally LaPointe – Harvard University

Lady Gaga has been very quiet for a while, so thankfully she was spotted arriving at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA yesterday to launch her ‘Born This Way Foundation.’

The singer was wrapped up and kept warm from the snow wearing a Prabal Gurung Fall 2012 coat.

I hadn’t pictured Gaga in this collection, but this black and oil spill neoprene molded seam flare coat is perfect for her as she loved pieces with a structured or sculptural edge.

She wore her coat with a full length black skirt, sheer black gloves and Prabal Gurung for Linda Farrow Projects sunglasses.

Red lips and a signature extravagant headpiece topped off her look.

Inside the venue Gaga removed her Prabal Gurung coat, to reveal a beautiful Sally LaPointe Fall 2012 dress.

Her black jersey backless peplum dress shows that Gaga can do sophisticated.

The singer has worn a sexy black LaPointe dress once before.
