Prabal Gurung Spring 2013

Inspired by Indian architect Anish Kapoor and the traditional kurtas his mother and sister wore at home in Nepal, Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2013 collection started off with masculine separates including tailcoat blazers, chiffon tunics and cropped low-slung pants with a loose silhouette.

We saw a bit of the designer’s dark side with a selection of edgier street mixed in with the frothy dresses and gowns which will most definitely hit the red carpet very soon.

Dresses and blouses with chiffon veils, feather-accented dresses, ruffled blouses, shorts, tunic dresses, blouses with draped backs and drop-waist dresses were presented on a colour palette that presented a contrast between classic black and white with pops of blue, maroon and red with the Kapoor-influenced spine print also playing its part.

Paul Hanlon at Schwarzkopf gave the models iron-straight locks with a center parting while Charlotte Tilbury for M.A.C. gave the models a barely there look with pale faces. I wonder how many celebs will work this pale-face look.

This season Prabal worked with Casadei who provided sexy strappy sandals and pumps.

The designer continued his collaboration with Linda Farrow, who provided the chic sunglasses.

Front Row: Hailee Steinfeld, Kate Bosworth and Allison Williams.

Favourites: Printed blouse and pants and blue jacquard jacket with matching shorts

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Sarah Jessica Parker, Amanda Seyfried, Emma Stone, Charlize Theron, Zoe Saldana, Diane Kruger, Christian Ricci, Lizzy Chaplan and Kristen Stewart

Nina Dobrev In Monique Lhuillier – The Hollywood Reporter TIFF Lounge

Nina Dobrev once again showed off her love of print at the Hollywood Reporter TIFF Lounge at the Toronto Film Festival yesterday.

The actress chose a cute short and top set from designer Monique Lhuillier’s Resort 2013 collection.

Nina can do no wrong on the style front at the moment. In her second Monique Lhuillier look in as many days, the stylish up-and-comer worked this ensemble to perfection.

A pair of Manolo Blahnik for Monique Lhuillier orange shoes, matching bangles and simply parted hair finished her look.

NYFW Spring 2013 – What I Wore Day 3

Saturday started off wet and rainy, but I didn’t let that dampen my day, as I opted to wear a colourful look consisting of a Tucker ‘Love Letter’ feather print top with my Tibi pants and gold Christian Louboutin peep-toe slingbacks.

Blake Lively inspired me to purchase those Tibi pants, as she wore them on Gossip Girl a few season ago.

You can buy the Tucker top from my-wardrobe US and International.

Jennifer Lawrence In Antonio Berardi – ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ Toronto Film Festival Photocall

Jennifer Lawrence was a woman in white for the ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ photocall at the Toronto Film Festival yesterday.

The actress looked beautiful in a white sheath dress from Antonio Berardi’s Resort 2013 collection.

I love the cut and detail of the dress, particularly the mesh panelling, and Jennifer definitely has the body for it. My only wish is that she’d had worn different shoes.

The Nicolas Kirkwood heels are great, but I think the dress would look better matched with a brighter colour, such as the pair on the model above.

Loose locks and a dark manicure completed her look.

Naomi Watts In Elie Saab – ‘The Impossible’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Believe it or not, but I have been trying to get the BDOTW poll up since Friday. Every time I start working on it, another gorgeous gown hits the red carpet in Venice or Toronto.

This time it was Naomi Watts who halts proceedings wearing a gorgeous Elie Saab Resort 2013 gown to the Toronto Film Festival premiere for ‘The Impossible’.

As we know blush and nude have been Naomi favourite red carpet colours of late, so this lavender gown is a breath of fresh air.

The dress, like all Elie dresses, fits like a glove.

I love the daring plunging neckline and the double pleated detail on the waist plus I’m grateful she kept the belt.

Gold accessories, a slick back ‘do and gorgeous smile completes this look, which sees the actress take a large step out of her comfort zone….finally.

Despite one hiccup, Mr Saab is having an amazing week.
