Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012 Presentation

Most Resort collections are only showcased via Look Books on Style.com, but Salvatore Ferragamo presented their Resort 2012 collection in some style in New York City yesterday.

The presentation took place at the James B. Duke Mansion, which is the former home of glamorous American heiress, Doris Duke.

Their front row was just as glamorous as the Fifth Avenue location, as Eva Mendes, Freida Pinto, Ashley Greene and Teresa Palmer took their seats wearing head-to-toe Ferragamo.

Eva Mendes: The Latin beauty wore a two-tone Ferragamo front twist dress. She really went to town by adding a lot of jewels to her look which include an oversized ring, bangles and gorgeous earrings.

Freida Pinto: The Indian actress was radiant wearing a summer chic Ferragamo look which included printed halter top with a white pencil skirt. I wasn’t surprised to see Freida at this event as she wears Ferragamo heels as often as Angelina Jolie on the red carpet. She usually opts for pumps, but she wore Ferragamo brown wedges on this occasion.

Ashley Greene: The Twilight star looked very sophisticated wearing an ivory belted Ferragamo wrap front dress. I love her for having fun with her accessories on this occasion. Bold red cap toe pumps and a houndstooth Ferragamo clutch from the Fall 2011 collection completed her look.

Teresa Palmer: The Australian actress went one step further, by wearing a Ferragamo houndstooth dress from the Fall 2011 collection which has a deep plunging neckline. Classic Ferragamo black pumps and a silver clutch completed her look.

They all look equally fabulous. I couldn’t pick a favourite. If you twisted my arm I could only narrow it down to Freida, Ashley and Teresa.

Massimiliano Giornetti presented a classic 30s inspired collection on a cool, fresh calming colour palette of white, navy, ocean blue and black.

Floppy oversized hats and sailor hats were paired fringed ensembles, nautical looks, tailored suits, tuxedo dresses and sexy separates.

Anna Dello Russo In Miu Miu – Milan Menswear Fashion Week

Anna Dello Russo appears to be toning things down several notches.

The usually flamboyant Editor at Large of Vogue Nippon was spotted during Milan Menswear Fashion Week earlier today wearing a Miu Miu embroidered dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

Anna added some emerald earrings, a gold clutch and Miu Miu crisscross glitter ankle boots from the same Fall 2011 collection to complete her look.

Of the 4 people who have worn this collection, this is the second time I’ve like it off the runway.

Michelle Williams was the first.

Madonna and Hailee Steinfeld failed to excite wearing this collection.

Fan Bing Bing & Daisy Lowe Front Row @ Elie Saab Fall 2011

Fan Bing Bing and Daisy Lowe were the front row stars of the Elie Saab’s Fall 2011 presentation yesterday.

Fan swept passed me so elegantly as she made her way to her seat.

Despite the chaos of people trying to find their seats and photographers getting grumpy because the show hadn’t started yet, she was class personified stopping for everyone who wanted to take her photo.

What I noticed first was her turban.

Weather you love or hate her look she’s constantly keeping things interesting by giving us 4 different hairstyles choices this week.

That’s more than Jennifer Aniston and Amanda Bynes have sported in their lifetimes.

I later found out that it was a makeshift turban as the embellished piece was actually part of her Elie Saab Spring 2011 twin set which was paired with her embellished shrug.

Daisy Lowe who much taller than I expected, looked stunning wearing an embellished powder blue Elie Saab Spring 2011 plunging dress. Her look was originally presented as a gown.

Both carried Elie Saab clutches.

Fan Bing Bing glammed up her look by adding gold bracelets and Christian Louboutin ‘Lady Daf’ ankle strap tan pumps.

My girl sure does love a chunky heel.

Front Row @ Miu Miu Fall 2011

Miu Miu got their front row casting spot on.

They mixed pretty young actresses who were ‘up and coming’ or had worn Miu Miu/Prada several times in the past.

Ginnifer Goodwin wore a black shoulder-accented sleeveless Miu Miu dress with python platform peep-toe pumps and matching clutch.

I’m not usually bored by Ginnifer, but I am in this case. Especially considering how everyone else looked.

Jennifer Lawrence wore a Miu Miu red silk puff sleeve dress with a black leather narrow belt, black pumps, and a white/black printed wristlet clutch.

I love this look, but the clutch throws me a bit.

Hailee wore an adorable Miu Miu blush pink silk long sleeve dress with an ivory ruffled collar.

Black multi-strap leather pumps and a leopard print clutch completed her look.

Once again superb styling, but I found myself distract by the smoky eye make-up.

Mila Kunis always knows how to make a black dress look sexy with her smoldering aura.

She wore a Miu Miu black V-neck dress with silver embroidered details.

She took a rare night off wearing Brian Atwood pumps instead opting for Miu Miu patent peep-toes.

Love Hailee and Mila.

Fan Bing Bing and Gong Li Front Row @ Louis Vuitton Fall 2011

Fan Bing Bing and Gong Li were both front row at Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2011 presentation yesterday.

What makes me smile about this picture is that it used to be Gong Li who would wear the stand-out runway looks, now she’s gone demure so thank god for Fan Bing Bing.

Gong Li opted for a simple black suit with satin lapels and lacy top.

Fan Bing Bing looked outstanding getting into the full oriental spirit of the Louis Vuitton Spring 2011 collection.

The look was modified slightly to include a lace lining down the side split to protect her modesty.

Marcel waves, plum lips, long black tasseled earrings, a multi-coloured LV clutch and black Louis Vuitton pumps (which I’m not crazy about) completed her look.

I would be really interested to know what you think about Fan’s look.

Is she working this bold look (because let’s face it who else would dare to wear this) or do you think it’s too costumey?

Alexa Chung Front Row @ Valentino Fall 2011

Alexa Chung was also front row at Valentino’s Fall 2011 presentation during Paris Fashion Week.

I really like this Valentino Pre-Fall 2011 creamy leather dress with ruffled details, lace bodice and bow accent.

Yes the tights do bother me but I can live with them, it’s those shoes that crush me the most.

They make Alexa look so flat footed. I would’ve loved some heels with this look.

Alexa was snapped by Street Style photographer Tamu from ‘All The Pretty Birds’ outside the venue.

The blue coat and the tights work on that occasion.

Florence Welch Front Row @ Valentino Fall 2011

Did Florence Welch read your comments? Because she opted for a different look whilst making her way to her front row seat at the Valentino Fall 2011 presentation in Paris yesterday morning.

Some of you have been looking forward to Florence giving us something different to the floaty, tiered, floral floor-length dresses she’s worn on several occasions recently.

Here we have a Valentino Pre-Fall 2011 look which included a rose pink dress paired with a ruffled leather cropped jacket.

A Valentino clutch and berry pumps which matched her berry lips completed her look.

You’ll also be happy to see a different hairstyle on this occasion.
