Nieves Alvarez In Burberry Prorsum & Lanvin – Solo Moda

Nieves Alvarez Burberry

The statuesque Nieves Alvarez dialed up the glam quotient on Solo Moda this weekend.

In keeping with her current one-exclusive-designer-per-episode policy, on Saturday the TV host turned to Burberry Prorsum’s Spring 2013 collection.

Nieves showcased her femme fatale curves in one of my favourites from the collection, the pink jewel-toned metallic strapless dress replete with curve detailing at the corset bust and a subtle peplum detail at the waist. The yellow peep-toe pumps added the perfect finishing touch and pop of colour to this high-shine supercharged look.

Next up, Nieves opted for a studied chic look in a tailored white silk Burberry Prorsum trench with a retro cape paired with cut-out Christian Louboutin ankle boots. I would have loved it if she had opted to inject a touch of colour into this fabulous outerwear with a pair of bold killer heels.

Her final Burberry Prorsum Spring 2013 ensemble is one I’ve admired before on Emma Stone at the 2012 CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Awards. This gorgeous structured navy-blue peplum corset top with a black waistband donned with a decadent sparkly green pencil skirt is a stellar look that could have been a real winner had Nieves chosen a more dramatic shoe to complete the look.

Lindsay Lohan In Theia – amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week

Lindsay Lohan In Theia - amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week

It took me a while, but I have to admit Lindsay Lohan looked pretty good on the red carpet at Cipriani Wall Street for the amfAR New York Gala to kick off Fall 2013 Fashion Week yesterday evening, joining the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker and Alexa Chung.

The actress dazzled wearing a Theia Spring 2011 gown.

I love the flapper-esque feel to her nude-and-silver bugle-beaded fringed gown, which she styled with metallic-silver platform sandals.

Returning to her natural glorious strawberry-blonde hue, she styled her look with gold bracelets.

Kohl-rimmed eyes and a pink lip colour completed her look.

Do you like this look or does Lindsay have a long way to go to garner your praise?

Rihanna In Christopher Kane – Chris Brown’s Home

Rihanna In Christopher Kane - Chris Brown's Home

On-again off-again couple Rihanna and Chris Brown were spotted leaving Brown’s home in Los Angeles, California yesterday afternoon, as Chris was due in court over claims that he allegedly lied about finishing his community service.

Rihanna, who is determined to stand by her man, wore a Christopher Kane Resort 2013 blouse with black jeans.

Her punk-luxe floral-print shirt with a painterly print doesn’t quite scream ‘headed to court’, but this rebellious paint-slash look embodies the cutting-edge style we associate with the singer.

Black pumps, dark shades and a black Dolce & Gabbana tote completed her look.

Naomi Watts In Zac Posen – 11th Annual Visual Effects Society Awards

Naomi Watts In Zac Posen - 11th Annual Visual Effects Society Awards

Naomi Watts attended the 11th Annual Visual Effects Society Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California on Tuesday evening.

The actress wore a gorgeous Zac Posen strapless blood-red gown.

Ms Watts appears to be having quite a love affair with Zac Posen’s designs. Of the three she has worn in the last two months, her floral gown from ‘The Impossible’ LA premiere is still my favourite, with the Golden Globes gown a close second.

While this floral embroidered gown is stunning, I think Naomi is missing the je ne sais quoi she possessed with the previous looks mentioned.

Maybe if she’d opted for a different hairstyle, the look would’ve been amped up, taking it to another level.

Gold trinkets and natural makeup completed her look.

Solange Knowles In Ostwald Helgason – 4th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Music Event

Solange Knowles In Ostwald Helgason - 4th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Music Event

Solange Knowles attended the 4th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Music event held at the Greystone Manor Supperclub in West Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

Sporting her trademark ‘fro and bold lip colour, the singer/DJ wore an Ostwald Helgason Resort 2013 top and a-line skirt.

This collection, created by London-based designer duo Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason, which focuses on bold, multi-coloured diagonal stripes, was a huge hit with street-style stars such as Miroslava Duma and Anya Ziourova, so I’m not surprised to see Solange wear this brand.

Continuing to take the not-so-over-the-top approach to styling her ensemble, Solange styled her look with shoes by another London-based designer, Nicholas Kirkwood.

Despite this relatively modest kitten heel, I do like her black, silver and white toe-cap pumps.

Emilia Clarke In Zac Posen – amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week

Emilia Clarke In Zac Posen - amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week

My first ever post on Emilia Clarke was entitled ‘Who’s That Girl?’ back in June, 2011.

Over a year and a half later, the answer to that question is a ‘Games Of Thrones’ actress who’s set to make her Broadway debut in March as none other than the infamous Holly Golightly, made famous by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film, ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.

Before reaching those dizzy heights, the British actress took to the red carpet at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City last night for the amfAR New York Gala to kick off Fall 2013 Fashion Week.

Oozing glamour and sporting the much-loved hairstyle of the moment, the Veronica Lake, Emilia wore a Zac Posen gown.

Her rich maroon plunging gown was styled with an oversized eggplant satin sash tied to the waist.

Even with that somewhat overpowering detail, she’s not overwhelmed by it.

Lorraine ?Schwartz ?black and ?gold,? diamond? and? emerald? earrings ?plus a matching ring provided the finishing touches to her amazing look.

My best newcomer of 2012 continues to do me proud.
