Rita Ora In Stéphane Rolland Couture – Fashion Rocks 2014

Rita Ora In Stéphane Rolland Couture - Fashion Rocks 2014

Rita Ora also made a grand entrance when she took to the red carpet at Fashion Rocks 2014, presented by Three Lions Entertainment, at Barclays Center of Brooklyn on Tuesday (September 9) in New York.

She took the opportunity to play an extreme game of dress-up in a Stéphane Rolland Fall 2014 Couture gown that was every bit of an abstract art piece and architectural feat.

The black silhouetted bodice and illusion lining transitioned to a backless design, accented by spindly embellishment, before giving way to a full, tulle-laced tutu skirt underscored by a train of sheer black chiffon.

Adding her own signature quirk factor, the songstress put plenty of sass into the avant-garde sophistication of the design, wearing her platinum locks tied into a row of knots atop her head.

This strange mohawk-esque moment didn’t belong anywhere near the gown, and if there was ever a time for Rita to rock her signature red lip, this was it. I also longed for the skinny belt seen on the model for a waist-defining finish.

As with many of her looks, I’m sure this one will be a divisive design. With better styling, this statement would have been one intriguing fashion sculpture to not soon forget.

Jennifer Lopez In Atelier Versace – Fashion Rocks 2014

Jennifer Lopez In Atelier Versace - Fashion Rocks 2014

Jennifer Lopez took an attention-grabbing turn at Fashion Rocks 2014, presented by Three Lions Entertainment, at Barclays Center of Brooklyn on Tuesday (September 9) in New York City.

Outfitting her toned silhouette in an Atelier Versace Fall 2014 design, the entertainer truly rocked the red carpet in this impossibly sexy black gown with metallic gold-plated detail.

Forget those massive hooped earrings, sleek-as-can-be ponytail, and shiny Thalé Blanc clutch, her main accessory here was that leg. If you’re experiencing déjà vu, you’re likely remembering her appearance at the 2013 Grammys, where that racy leg jut likewise defined her look.

Daring and dramatic, this was “hot” couture at its finest—with a spirit of excess that was so very Versace… and so very J. Lo. One thing’s certain, she can work a Versace number like no other, and Fashion Rocks was the place to do it.

Glam or overly gratuitous?

Joan Smalls attended Fashion Rocks 2014, presented by Three Lions Entertainment, at Barclays Center of Brooklyn on Tuesday (September 9) in New York City.

The model didn’t shy away from artsy, high-octane design in a Fausto Puglisi Fall 2014 mini dress with an exuberant collection of saturated, colour-blocked hues and bold, graphic prints.

She accessorized with a Lee Savage ‘Plane’ clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti black sandals, along with EF Collection, Vita Fede and Melissa Kaye jewels.

Did you miss the belt and the pink heels from the runway?

Clémence Poésy In Chloé – ‘Jury Revelation Cartier’ Deauville American Film Festival Photocall

Clémence Poésy In Chloé – ‘Jury Revelation Cartier’ Deauville American Film Festival Photocall

Clémence Poésy struck a pose at the ‘Jury Revelation Cartier’ photo call at Villa Cartier during the 40th Deauville American Film Festival on Saturday (September 6) in Deauville, France.

Continuing her mannish streak, which we likewise saw at the Deauville opening ceremony, she played with proportion by matching her over-sized Chloé Spring 2015 black-striped white shirt with skinny black pants.

When paired with that glorious black hat, breezy blonde locks and masculine black loafers, this was the epitome of effortless Parisian-chic style.

I just wish she had pushed her right sleeve back, so her hand didn’t go missing.
