Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Kristen Wiig In Vena Cava - 'Hateship Loveship' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Kristen Wiig walked the red carpet of the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of her movie ‘Hateship Loveship’ Friday.

The former ‘SNL’ actress wore a Vena Cava blouse and shorts.

I always love Kristen’s low-key-yet-inventive approach to the red carpet, and this is no different.

The graphic-print shorts and geometric cut-out blouse is fresh and fun, and I like her t-strap platforms even more than the lookbook shoe pairing.

Kristen finished her look with her usual simple makeup and messy updo.

Coach Event 1

A bright crop of starlets turned out for the third annual Coach cocktail party and shopping event to benefit the Children’s Defense Fund, hosted by ‘Star Trek’ movie producer-director J.J. Abrams on the rooftop of his Bad Robot production company in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday. Coach clutches, handbags and totes proved to be the night’s hottest accessory, as many PYTs no doubt plucked up a new purse for their collections.

Chloe Sevigny: Always one to keep us guessing, the actress went for a rather girly approach in this printed Balenciaga dress that immediately had me wanting to fix that lopsided black bow at the waist. I also couldn’t get past the white tongue flap on those Balenciaga peep-toe shoes—or their mauve-purple colour that clashed with her coral-pink Coach clutch. An orange lippie proved another dissonant tone, although it matched the logo behind her.

Abigail Spencer: Donning a creamy DKNY Spring 2013 dress, the actress was chic and polished. She prevented sartorial boredom with a fuchsia handbag and melon-hued ankle-strap sandals. Loose waves and a glowing complexion finished off this breezy look.

Kate Mara: The ‘House of Cards’ star mixed masculine and feminine, showing a flash of skin in a Vena Cava sheer crop top with ruffled sleeve paired with black Parker peg pants and Brian Atwood’s ‘Wagner’ peep-toe heels. A Dannijo necklace was well-placed and added just the right amount of sparkle.

During Awards Season, Natalie Portman was also promoting her new movie, “No Strings Attached.”

At the LA Premiere she wore a loose fitted Vena Cava ‘Electric Dreams’ long dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

Her colour-blocked halter dress with a keyhole detail was paired with black Aldo ‘Todeschi’ heels, a simple black lacquer Tiffany bangle and a black Christian Dior bag.

Estelle wore the same dress earlier this month when she attended the Heineken Red Star Access G.O.O.D. Music presented by Kanye West at Skylight One Hanson in New York City.

The British singer added a belt to the dress. That wasn’t the only let down.

Her bra is clearly visible through the keyhole detail, plus she over accessorized.

For keeping the look simple Natalie wins for me.

Impending motherhood clearly agrees with Natalie Portman because she was glowing on the red carpet last night at the “No Strings Attached” LA Premiere.

The actress wore a Vena Cava ‘Electric Dreams’ long dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

Her colour-blocked halter dress with a keyhole detail was paired with black Aldo ‘Todeschi’ heels, a simple black lacquer Tiffany bangle and a black Christian Dior bag.

Natalie’s maternity style has so far been flawless.

I can only see it getting better as we get deeper into Awards Season, but I’m not too keen on the Tiffany black silk tassel earrings with freshwater pearls which she wore with this look.

“No Strings Attached” hits cinemas January 21 in the US and February 25 in the UK.

Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai were inspired by the 1980s Memphis design movement for their Vena Cava Spring 2011 presentation which took place this morning during New York Fashion Week.

We were presented with a lot of bold geometric shapes, colour-blocking, bright colours and prints.

That may all sound quite a bit rigid, but it was a very laid-back collection with many wear-right-now pieces.

Silk slip dresses, kimono tops, pantsuits, blazers, printed camisoles, pants paired with dresses, halter dresses, off-the-shoulder crop tops, shorts, flared skirts and high-waisted pants were presented.

The key accessories were statement necklaces, rope belts, black and orange headbands and wooden platforms.

The models walked at a very leisurely pace, no doubt to prevent any falls in those shoes.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Shala Monroque, Liv Tyler and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Natalie Portman arrived at the New York City Ballet opening night gala this week wearing a Vena Cava Spring 2010 navy and white printed dress.

I would’ve thought going to a ballet required a look more regal and elegant.

This look could just as easily have been worn to run errands in.

I love the dress, but not for this occasion.

Of course Catherine Malandrino gave me the glamour I was desperately missing from Natalie.

The designer wore a silver metallic gown with a deep plunge and draped hips of her own design from her Resort 2010 collection.

The gown was worn with a large statement necklace which complemented her gown perfectly.

As much as I miss her raven locks, this warmer auburn colour is just divine on her.

Dita von Teese wore this same dress in black recently.

Erin Fetherston’s pieces are always have a fantasy princess element to them, and this cute dress is no different.

What makes this particular piece interesting is the floral print and the sharp asymmetrical hem.

Mila Kunis gives us a rare smile wearing a Dolce & Gabbana grey ruched strapless cocktail dress, with a contrasting black waistband.

Her popular dress was worn with a black blazer and satin black pumps.
