Valentino Resort 2013 Accessories On Moda Operandi

One of the latest trunk shows on features accessories from the Valentino Resort 2013 collection.

We recently got a close-up look at the black Valentino ‘Rockstud’ minaudiere courtesy of Rose Byrne last week, but I’m delighted to see the fuchsia and apple colours available for Resort 2013.

You can also pre-order the Rockstud’ flap clutch which is a stylish piece with a trendy wristlet which comes in three colours.

For evenings out there is an enamel ‘Rockstud’ minaudiere and sparkling sandals.

Everyday pieces include an oversized studded black satchel, totes, moccasins, flat espadrilles and cross-body bags in zesty yellow, tasty apple and hot pink.

Add some colour to your closet with these chic accessories. Pre-order the collection before July 4 from

Florence Welch In Valentino – 14th Annual White Tie and Tiara Ball to Benefit Elton John AIDS Foundation

Florence Welch joined Naomi Watts in Windsor, England, yesterday evening for the 14th Annual White Tie and Tiara Ball to Benefit Elton John AIDS Foundation.

The singer wore a Valentino full-length lace-embroidered dress with a rounded neckline and puffed long sleeves.

Florence added a selection of Chopard and Bulgari jewels to her look. I just love how she decorated her dress with a stunning statement necklace which is more like a body chain.

I’m not sure the dress would’ve been so beautiful without it.

A champagne satin Bulgari clutch with a serpent clasp, an updo with face-framing tendrils and a matte-pink lip colour completed her look.

Rose Byrne In Valentino – ‘Damages’ Season 5 Premiere

Rose Byrne attended the season 5 premiere for ‘Damages’ on Thursday in New York City.

The actress looked lovely, as always, wearing a Valentino Fall 2012 ivory knee-length dress with embroidered detailing, long sleeves, and an A-line skirt.

Known for her sophisticated styling, the look falls flat with both the choice of clutch and footwear.

Her black Valentino pyramid-studded clutch and teal crystal-embellished platform slingbacks don’t work with the dress for me.

I would’ve preferred the nude version below, or even the white runway heels.

Everything else from her chic bun to her flawless makeup, especially that rich red lip shade, I did love.

Cartier jewels completed the look.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead In Valentino – ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ New York Premiere

Mary Elizabeth Winstead joined Erin Wasson on the red carpet on Monday night for the ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ premiere in New York City.

The actress shimmered wearing a Valentino Fall 2012 dress.

Her stunning sequin and crystal embellished dress panelled with strips of rose lace in the body is also layered with a fine layer of tulle and lined with a silk underdress.

Mary kept the blush theme going by styling her look with a Roger Vivier clutch and matching Brian Atwood satin platform pumps.

Luscious brunette waves, kohl-rimmed eyes and a complementing lip colour completed her look.

Keira Knightley In Valentino – ‘Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World’ LA Film Festival Premiere

Keira Knightley looked stunning as she took to the red carpet for the LA Film Festival premiere of her latest movie, ‘Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World’.

The British actress wore a Valentino Fall 2012 dress.

Her taupe tulle gown was embroidered with colourful floral details. To enrich the red petals she wore a red leaf hair accessory in her updo to give her look an ancient Grecian feel.

She dabbed a shimming light-pink lip colour on her signature pout and her piercing eyes were smoked with a soft brown colour.

Nude patent pumps and her diamond engagement ring provided the finishing touches.

Keira Knightley In Valentino – Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Following her guest appearance on ‘The Today Show’, Keira Knightley made a guest appearance on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ to promote her new movie ‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World’.

On this occasion the British actress wore a Valentino Fall 2012 dress.

It would appear that Keira, Valentino and Jimmy Fallon had a connection, as on her last appearance on Jimmy’s show she also wore a look from the then-recent Fall collection.

On this occasion she wore a black dress with gold shimmering embroidered details and sheer sleeves.

A simple bun, glossy lips, black patent pumps and her new sparkling engagement ring completed her look.
