Rose Byrne In Thakoon – 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Rose Byrne In Thakoon - 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Rose Byrne attended the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards, hosted last night in New York City at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center.

Quite a few short, cocktail frocks took to the CFDA red carpet, and the ‘Bridesmaids’ actress flaunted one of them in her party-girl dress by Thakoon.

The plunging, black matte paillettes bodice transitioned into a fancy apron-like overlay for the printed and pleated crinkle lace skirt underneath.

Chunky, Ferragamo mauve satin pumps were another puzzling contrast.

She was the presenter for the Accessories Designer of the Year (Phillip Lim took the prize), and I wanted to love Rose’s outfit. But in the end, I was less than thrilled by the way it photographed.

It is hard to argue with a ravishing red-orange lippie. But the tousled hair, with bangs twisted and pinned back at the top, seemed a bit too casual to carry off the rest of the look.

Rona Pfeiffer jewels provided the finishing touches.

Christina Ricci In Thakoon – 2013 Fresh Air Fund ‘Salute To American Heroes’

Christina Ricci  In Thakoon - 2013 Fresh Air Fund 'Salute To American Heroes'

Christina Ricci will flirt with colour from time to time, but it was back to her favoured black yesterday for the 2013 Fresh Air Fund ‘Salute To American Heroes’ event held at Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers in New York City yesterday.

The actress wore a Thakoon Spring 2013 dress, which didn’t take to the runway but is recognizable by the sheer floral lace inserts.

Christina’s halter dress with a nipped-in waist was styled with metallic-gold Giuseppe Zanotti pumps to add some pizzazz to her look, which saw her conclude with barely-there makeup and a simple side-parted bun.

Rita Ora In Thakoon – 2013 Met Gala

Rita Ora In Thakoon - 2013 Met Gala

Sporting her trademark red lip colour, Rita Ora joined a host of stars who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

The British singer wore a Thakoon look which was created especially for this event.

I had expected her dress to be covered in safety pins, but her ivory dress with an asymmetrical top and cutout waist was accented with gold-chain embroidery.

More gold bling was to be had with Tasaki jewels and a gold clutch that completed her look.

Are you glad Rita put the try-hard on pause tonight, or were you expecting more?

Nina Dobrev In Thakoon – Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer Launch

Nina Dobrev In Thakoon - Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer Launch

Nina Dobrev made an appearance at the Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer launch in New York City on Friday.

The Vampire Diaries starlet went for a daring look by selecting Thakoon Spring 2013 frock.

The halterneck dress with a black-and-white criss-cross bodice make me wish I kick started my pre-spring gym training a few months earlier.

Showcasing more than a little bit of skin up top, the bottom half was a totally different story, with a contrasting demure black pleated skirt.

Opting for a fresh faced look and simple top knot, Nina styled her look with black Jimmy Choo Fitch sandals – a celebrity favourite – and a silver ring.

While this won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, I have to say it’s a risk that paid off. It’s on trend plus she has the body to wear it so why not?

Katy Perry In Thakoon – Coach’s 3rd Annual Evening of Cocktails and Shopping to Benefit the Children’s Defense Fund

Katy Perry In Thakoon - Coach's 3rd Annual Evening of Cocktails and Shopping to Benefit the Children's Defense Fund

Katy Perry showed her support to Coach’s 3rd Annual Evening of Cocktails and Shopping to Benefit the Children’s Defense Fund, held at Bad Robot in Santa Monica, California yesterday evening.

The singer gives us our second look at the Thakoon Fall 2013 collection.

Not only did she add a black leather belt to her dandelion-print dress with sheer inserts to give her a nipped-in waist, but she also added a bejewelled necklace which, if you hadn’t seen the runway image, you would’ve thought was part of the dress.

As this was a Coach event, she of course carried some arm candy from the brand, further accessorizing with Monika Chiang ankle-strap pumps and an aqua-blue ring.

Beauty-wise, the singer sported a dewy glow with neutral makeup, and her thick, long, raven tresses were left to flow naturally.

Anna Kendrick In Thakoon – Vogue ‘Triple Threats’ Dinner

Anne Kendrick In Thakoon - Vogue 'Triple Threats' Dinner

Actress and Triple Threat video star Anna Kendrick joined fellow starlets the likes of Nikki Reed, Brittany Snow and Dianna Agron at Vogue’s ‘Triple Threat’ dinner, hosted by Sally Singer and Lisa Love, at Goldie’s in Los Angeles last week.

She also indulged in the evening’s pattern play with her dress from Thakoon’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

The glint of gold on the toe caps of Jerome Rousseau’s ‘Flicker’ suede heels provided just enough flash to make this standard black pump more palatable.

As for that gleaming gold choker necklace… I could have done without the fancy pup collar.
