Citymeals-on-Wheels 27th Annual ‘Power Lunch for Women’

Citymeals-on-Wheels 27th Annual Power Lunch for Women

On Friday, Citymeals-On-Wheels hosted its 27th annual Power Lunch for Women at The Plaza Hotel in New York City — and as is to be expected, the stars in attendance dressed the part of “ladies who lunch.”

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host chose a nude-coloured Roland Mouret sheath with a simple black bow-tie sash at the waist. While cut at the knee, her cap-sleeved number showed off ample cleavage via a low boxed-out neckline — it’s certainly a sexier daytime silhouette, but one that she pulled off without a hitch. A gold pendant necklace and embellished pumps completed the look.

Brooke Shields: Just two days after Victoria Beckham wore her own tri-colour Fall 2013 dress, Brooke Shields stepped out in the same exact frock across the pond, styling it with black pumps, a textured black clutch, and gold cuff. While I love the bright pattern, this dress wasn’t the most flattering choice.

Debra Messing: The actress stepped out in a long-sleeved black dress with silver-band details at the waist and bodice. Her futuristic fashion statement — or attempt at one — was accessorized with large earrings, black clutch, black heels, and a silver smokey eye.

Knee-length hems aside, these looks ran the gamut. Have a favourite, or is this power lunch a fashion miss?

Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham – Quincy Accessories Collection Launch

Victoria Beckham Launches Her Exclusive Quincy Accessories Collection At Selfridges

Victoria Beckham launched her exclusive Quincy accessories collection at Selfridges in London yesterday evening.

Models wearing VB’s threads towered over the designer, who I’m delighted wasn’t wearing head-to-toe black for a change.

I was starting to mentally check out until she wore this tri-colour Victoria Beckham Fall 2013 black crepe dress with a grey wool-tweed skirt and a striking bright-yellow-panelled body which sits just at the knee, which she styled with leg-lengthening Casadei nude ‘Blade’ pumps.

Side-swept sleek straight locks and smoky eyes completed her look.

Are you glad she’s given us a break from her succession of all-black looks, or are you still wanting more from VB?

Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham – London Global Gift Gala

Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham - London Global Gift Gala

Victoria Beckham joined her good friend Eva Longoria on the red carpet at the ME Hotel in London yesterday evening for Eva’s annual Global Gift Gala.

Once again it was head-to-toe black, with the same side-swept hairstyle and Harry Winston jewels.

The perfectly positioned cut-out adds some sex appeal to this quietly dramatic, sophisticated look, but I still want more from VB.

Eva Longoria In Victoria Beckham - London Global Gift Gala

Eva Longoria hosted her annual Global Gift Gala at the ME Hotel in London yesterday evening.

If you are following Victoria Beckham on Twitter you would’ve seen her fitting Eva for this dress a few days ago.

Eva’s black Victoria Beckham gown with a racer-front design incorporates the lingerie-inspired straps we saw presented in VB’s Spring 2013 collection.

While they work as part of a sassy cocktail dress, I’m not sure they really work for me on the gown.

Do they work for you?

Either way, with the silhouette and the simple styling of this look, this is the best Eva has looked in a long while.

Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham – Bambi Awards 2013

Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham - Bambi Awards 2013

Following her ‘Special Contribution to British Fashion’ honour at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards last week, Victoria Beckham attended the Bambi Awards 2013 held at the Stage Theater in Berlin, Germany, where the 39-year-old designer was honoured once again with a Bambi Award in the fashion category.

As you know, I love Victoria Beckham, but I feel slightly disappointed by the déjà vu between this and the last event.

For both events she wore black floor-length gowns, with the same hair and makeup.

The only difference is the breathtaking emerald-stone Chopard jewels on this occasion.

Having seen her commercial gowns, there is a variety of colours I wish she had considered.

Black is very much her staple, but I hope to see some colour next time out.

Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham - Harper's Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Victoria Beckham was honoured with the ‘Special Contribution to British Fashion’ award for her achievements as a designer at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year awards held at Claridge’s Hotel yesterday in London.

Attending with the other man in her life, Brooklyn Beckham, the designer was of course decked out in her own threads, wearing a black floor-length gown.

Steeped with classic VB signatures including the exposed zipper at the back, this gown maintains the perfect mix of classic and contemporary, with a sexy cut-out bodice and an elegant puddle train.

Glossy side-swept locks and diamond jewels completed her look.

You may remember that both Rachel Weisz (in tangerine) and Christina Aguilera have previously worn this gown.
