Fashion’s Night Out

Bergdorf Goodman

The biggest stars took to the stores here in New York for the biggest Fashion night out the world has ever seen.

My chin hit the floor when I saw Victoria Beckham – not all for good reasons.

Firstly she was not wearing a black pencil dress – SHOCKER.

Secondly she wasn’t wearing black period – minus her thigh high Gucci Fall 2009 boots.

Thirdly the dress wasn’t from her collection and lastly WOW.

Where did this woman come from? This isn’t slightly tedious VB we have been looking at for the last six months.

This is someone who wanted to shake off the boring tag and shock us all.

And she did.

Unfortunately I really didn’t like make-up, and I didn’t understand why she wore such an edgy look with a headband.

On the positive side I did like her modified Giles Fall 2009 reptile print strapless dress.

I don’t like to talk about weight on my blog, it’s number no no. But I’m sure many of you will debate her weight because she is looking a tad gaunt.

Oscar de la Renta Boutique

Sarah Jessica Parker wore her ‘Fashion’s Night Out’ tee with pride pairing it with a taffeta Oscar de la Renta asymmetrical skirt, and a black belt encrusted with diamante’s on the buckle.

I love the way she styled the tee.

Anna Wintour who organised this FNO event, showed her support for the cause by wearing the campaign t-shirt like SJP.

She paired the tee with a colour co-ordinating Prada Spring 2009 pencil skirt.

Ralph Lauren Women’s Boutique

Blake Lively turned down the sex kitten for a country chic head-to-toe Ralph Lauren look, wearing a grey embellished blouse with tweed vest and tan crocodile boots.

Camilla Belle – also in head-to-toe Ralph Lauren – went for a sexy chic look wearing a luxurious Pre-Fall 2009 grey wool one-shoulder dress with a pink crocodile belt, brown sandals.

I’m not so sure I like the longer hair, but her dress is spectacular on her.

Bloomingdale’s 59th Street Store

Lindsay Lohan wore an Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2009 Caribbean blue shirt as shirtdress paired with leggings, sky high heeled ankle boots and a trilby hat.

Macy’s Herald Square

Debra Messing looked fabulous wearing a one-sleeved charcoal Michael Kors Fall 2009 herringbone origami dress.

I love the thinner belt she wore with the dress, and the sculptured shoulder.

Vogue Pop Up Boutique at Macy’s Queens

Across town Kate Hudson was also wearing a dress from the Michael Kors Fall 2009 collection.

Her espresso check strapless dress also had origami details on the bodice.

Giuseppe Zanotti Boutique

Channeling her inner Grace Jones, Rihanna looked fierce sporting a hooded Alexander Wang cowl-neck mini dress with a pair of studded sunglasses at night, and Giuseppe Zanotti boots.

Dior Boutique

Charlize Theron was of course on hand to provide the star power to the Dior Boutique.

The actress looked outstanding from her perfectly coiffed hair to her Dior heels.

I just love her silvery blue Dior strapless dress. Hollywood glamour at its very finest.

Victoria’s Secret Lexington Store

Miranda Kerr looked uber cute wearing a colour blocking Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2009 dress we have previously seen on Kate Walsh.

Who Wore Matthew Williamson For H&M Better? Ginnifer Goodwin or Daria Werbowy

Ginnifer Goodwin was one of the first celebrities along with Nicky Hilton and Katy Perry to get her hands on the Matthew Williamson for H&M collection.

She wore this multi-colour sequined dress when she hosted an evening at “Prive Las Vegas” inside “Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino”.

At the launch of the “Matthew Williamson for H&M collection” aboard The Majesty in New York, Matthew Williamson and model Daria Werbowy posed together on the red carpet.

She wore the same dress as Ginnifer, but she belted her dress and wore booties.

The dress looks so much better worn without a belt, so Ginnifer wins for me.

Prabal Gurung Spring 2010

Prabal Gurung already has a strong celebrity fan base which includes Demi Moore (she’s worn his pieces twice) Rachel Weisz and of course Zoe Saldana who introduced his collection to the world wearing a jaw-dropping red dress.

You would think with such a fan base Gurung was in his 5th for 6th season, but this is actually only his second collection.

Rachel Zoe was in attendance so the anticipation was HUGE.

If there was a hype before hand Gurung not only lived up to it, he surpassed it.

I tried to contain my excitement viewing this A-Mazing Spring 2010 collection, it really had that wow factor with every piece. As I said on twitter, it’s easily my favourite collection so far.

As we walked around the trendy loft the collection started off with neutral colours. It moved onto cobalt blues, then a explosion of red which almost had me weak at the knees.

The collection had mix of both masculine and feminine pieces, which both playing off each other.

I noticed a lot of bows, and black features on nearly every piece.

My favourite piece was the cobalt blue dress, which swirl around the models body. Charlize, it has your name all over it.

Anna Sui For Target Pop-Up Store Launch Party

Known for her mix of vintage glamour, art and culturally inspired-design, Anna Sui developed her Target collection inspired by the distinct looks of “Gossip Girl” characters Serena van der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf, Jenny Humphrey and Vanessa Abrams.

You may remember I did a post on the looks a few months ago.

Today Target opened a limited-time-only pop-up store in celebration of the Anna Sui for Target collection launch to give New Yorkers the opportunity to shop the entire collection before it hits stores nationwide on September 13th.

Emma Stone was one of the many guests at the launch party last night.

She wore a white lace accented with a blue bow from Blair Waldorf’s collection with uninspiring black pumps.

Blake Lively was there to support the collection, but wasn’t actually wearing the collection.

She wore a cute multi-coloured tiered dress with the same Christian Louboutin studded heels Alexandra Burke wore earlier this week, plus a stack of bangles.

Fresh faced and gorgeous as always.

Jessica Szohr gave us her best diva poses as she walked the red carpet wearing a cropped top and black jeans, with some questionable animal print heels.

Michelle Trachtenberg opted for a bright floral dress which she partially covered with a leather jacket

OMG. Taylor Momsen gets scarier and scarier for me.

The T-shirt and high-waisted skirt aren’t the issue.

It’s the hair and make-up.

You can check out the Anna Sui for Target collection online.

BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010


The BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010 was all about prints, bod-con and asymmetrical dresses.

We were presented with vivid colours, geometric colour blocking, draping, black chiffon overlays and embellishments.

There were a lot of pieces wrapped or draped with chiffon which added a sexy edge to the collection as this fabric covered most of the peek-a-boo cut-outs.

I’ll imagine the bod-con dresses will be very popular with young Hollywood, but there was something for everyone from the daytime dresses to the sexy mini dress to the evening gowns.

The collection was as expected was youthful, sexy and fabulous.

You will be surprised to know that you can ALREADY shop this collection.

BCBG have capitalised on the fact that when we see it on the runway, we want it now. Not 6 months down the line.

Go to BCBG Max Azria’s website to shop this collection.

I didn’t spot Amanda Bynes at the show, and I was deeply disappointed as I would’ve seriously asked her ‘what gives’ with the ‘Never Changing Hair and LBDs’.

Yes I would have seriously asked her, in a really polite way of course. Especially when she would have had a wealth of free dresses to pick from for this show, yet she still opted for ANOTHER LBD. *bangs head against Starbucks table*

I hope she’s at the Herve Leger show because I HAVE to speak to her. It’s my fashion week mission.

It’s rare that I find any woman taller than me, but Keri Hilson was.

Not only that but she is BEAU-TI-FUL. I never noticed until today.

Pictures do not do this girl justice because I was in awe.

The singer was wearing a BCBG ensemble paired with camel heels and an outstanding statement necklace.

I think I have a new girl crush.

I do like this chartreuse BCBG Max Azria Fall 2009 dress, but I preferred it on the runway to Lynn Collins.

Click here to see who else was at the show.

If you have been following me on Twitter, you would’ve seen my post on Anna Wintour who I saw as she made her way into the BCBG show whilst I queued.

The editor-in-chief of Vogue was of course wearing Prada.

Saks Fifth Avenue Launch Of Designer Third Floor

We’ve seen Leighton Meester wearing Victoria Beckham’s dresses on set, now her co-star Blake Lively has worn this stunning blue Spring 2009 dress on the red carpet.

I love the colour on her.  VB would be proud.

What?!?!?

Now there’s a first. Georgina Chapman not wearing Louboutin’s.

I don’t think I have ever seen the beautiful designer not wearing Louboutin’s. This is as shocking as it would be if she didn’t wear her own collection on the red carpet.

Of course she did wear her own collection, this time she wore the same Marchesa Resort 2010 one-shouldered dress Diane Kruger wore recently but in black.

I’m not quite getting the wow factor from Charlize Theron wearing a black and white floral Dior dress, but there’s no denying how beautiful and chic she looks here.

Alexis Bledel walked the red carpet with Christian Siriano, so this could be a Spring 2010 preview?

Her nude one shouldered satin top and snake skirt printed skirt was accented with ravishing red Christian Dior heels.

I adore this look, the red is fabulous.

Michelle Monaghan looked lovely as ever wearing a J. Mendel’s electric purple brushstroke dress with an amazing statement necklace and Christian Louboutin for J. Mendel grey gladiators sandals.

Sporting longer hair Taraji P. Henson looked classy wearing a studded Kaufman Franco one-shouldered dress.

Love the colour on her.

Runway To “Whiteout” LA Premiere – Kate Beckinsale In Jil Sander

Maybe it’s because I’m sitting in an air conditioned Starbucks or maybe it’s because Kate Beckinsale looks so drop-dead gorgeous, but I have goosebumps right about now.

I LOVE the simplicity of Kate’s Jil Sander Fall 2009 strapless gown.

The structure of the bodice, and the draped detail on the hip are exquisite.

She’s so effortless, so chic, not a hint of the over-dresser she used to be.

Kate pairs her look with gold accessories and very loosely ties her hair back.

We waited months for Jil Sander to hint the red carpet, and now we’ve had 3 looks in a space of a week.

Guess who has just booked herself a place on the BDOTW list?
