The Art of Elysium “Bright Lights” with Versus – Estelle In Versus

The Art of Elysium held their 2nd Annual New York fundraiser titled “Bright Lights” with Versus on Friday.

The Versus with Donatella Versace and Christopher Kane greeted their many guests which included Brit singer Estelle.

She opted to wear a Versus Spring 2010 mini black dress with a metallic mesh bodice.

Her yellow clutch is a nice colour pop, but the shoes are a huge let down.

I much prefer the gladiator style boots Estelle wore when she performed at the event.

They were worn with a Versus Fall 2010 LBD.

The dress has a black satin panel and a flirty pleated skirt.

I wish Estelle had worn one of the red Versus Fall 2010 pieces on stage. It would’ve had such a massive impact.

Dada Ball 2010: Dada Rocks with Decades – Chloe Sevigny In Versus

Cameron Silver owner of the fabulous vintage boutique Decades, hosted the “Dada Ball 2010″ this weekend.

The fundraiser was for the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis with all proceeds from the event supporting the Museum’s educational outreach programs.

Chloë Sevigny attended the event wearing a stunning Versus safety pin dress from the Spring 2010 collection designed by Christopher Kane.

The LBD is accented with coloured safety pins on the shoulders and the skirt.

I loved seeing the return of the iconic safety pins. It’s a brilliant nod to the infamous safety pin dress worn by Liz Hurley.

Like the runway, Chloe also carried the Versus shoulder bag which is also covered with multi-coloured safety pins.

Is anyone else wishing she’d gone full on matchy matchy and paired her dress and bag with the Versus safety pin sandals?

I met Christopher Kane, the designer of this collection earlier today at his press day in London, and he gave Chloe the thumbs up on this look.

He said he loved how she pulled her hair back to keep the look really fresh and modern, and he also loved the pop of red on her lips.

Couldn’t agree more.

Miley Cyrus For Teen Vogue April 2010

Miley Cyrus is the latest cover star for Teen Vogue appearing in the April 2010 issue.

The teen actress was shot by photographer Patrick Demarchelier in Paris.

On the cover she sports straight hair whilst wearing a Versus Spring 2010 mini red dress.

The editorial isn’t just about her. Her co-star – and boyfriend – Liam Hemsworth also appears in the issue. Let’s hope they don’t break up before the May issue hits the stands.

Here are some extracts from Miley’s interview:

On her first impression of Liam: “He’s really tall. I thought, Either I’m going to have to be in heels or standing on something for this entire movie! He definitely showed chivalry: I remember him opening the door for the director, and I was like, Wow.”

On her future in music: “The more I make music that doesn’t truly inspire me, the more I feel like I’m blending in with everyone else. So after this next album, I’m taking some time off.”

On her chemistry with Liam: “I think we’re both deeper than normal people—what they think and how they feel. He’s very grateful for what he has, but he doesn’t let it go to his head. I’m like that too.”

Versus Fall 2010

Versus Fall 2010 continues to go from strength to strength as the younger flirtatious sister of the main Versace brand.

The hemlines continue to be short, but this season we see more of a colour pop.

I loved how the majority of the dresses had a fitted bondage-style bodices with a pleated skirt which fanned out.

These were very much party pieces, but the more wearable looks included a plum velvet jacket, a green velvet blazer, black cigarette pants, leather jackets, an angora cardigan and printed tees for everyday wear.

This collection shows Kane’s edgy side whilst still retaining the sex appear of Versace which I really appreciated from this collection.

The accessories were amazing with lace-up gladiator boots and sandals to bags and cute zippered clutches.

The prints you see on the bag and tees are archived images of Bruce Weber ad campaign images for Versace.

Cheryl Cole For Glamour UK February 2010

It seems that everyone (including me) is in love with Mrs Cole.

She has gone from pop star to a WAG to X Factor judge winner to everyone’s favourite fashionista.

Her wardrobe during the recent X Factor shows was near flawless, so we’re glad Glamour UK have helped with our withdrawal symptoms by putting her on their February 2010 cover.

She looks stunning Christian Dior Spring 2010 corseted dress, plus her trademark big hair – no doubt this shoot was done before her big chop.

She talks about her husband Ashley Cole – who cheated on her last year – being labeled a fashionista and her feud with Lily Allen.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On her husband Ashley: “Ashley is totally the opposite of how he is perceived. People have this idea that he is flash, ignorant and disloyal – the ugliest traits a husband could have. But he’s not. He’s never rude, he’s never aggressive and will go out of his way to make other people happy. He’s shy and he’s cute, but there is no way of proving that to people.”

Jessica Szohr For Teen Vogue February 2010

Jessica Szhor is the last main member of the “Gossip Girl” cast to have a solo Teen Vogue cover.

Her February 2010 cover sees her wearing one of my favourite looks from the BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010 collection. I also loved the red Versus safety-pin dress below.

The self-proclaimed “jeans and tee shirt girl” is refreshingly down-to-earth in her interview.

She opens up about her modest attitude towards fame, her relationship with Ed Westwick, and her big screen debut this April in the spring-break thriller “Piranha 3-D.”

Click here for information on the February cover and behind the scenes footage from the shoot.

On her Gossip Girl co-stars and double-dating with them: “I’ve heard horror stories form other actors about egos, people who don’t get along, but we’re all friends. There are people from this job who will be in my life for a very, very long time… Sometimes we double-date with Penn [Badgley] and Blake [Lively], or Leighton [Meester] and Sebastian [Stan]. We all hang out.”
