Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

Harper's BAZAAR Celebrates 'ICONS By Carine Roitfeld'

The glam guest list of models, music royalty, and more was almost impossibly long for Harper’s BAZAAR’s celebration of ‘ICONS by Carine Roitfeld’ during New York Fashion Week on Friday (September 7).

Sara Sampaio: The model shone wore a scintillating sequin Maison Alexandrine gown with Christian Louboutin heels and bombshell waves.

Cardi B: Extravagance is generally the singer’s middle name, and especially so in this Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2018 extravaganza of ruffles and jewels.

‘Suspiria’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

‘Suspiria’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Chloe Grace Moretz, Dakota Johnson, Mia Goth and Tilda Swinton were joined on the red carpet by a host of other celebrities for the Venice Film Festival premiere of ‘Suspiria’, on Saturday (September 1) in Italy.

Alek Wek: The model, who stars in this film, wore a Calvin Klein by Appointment coral silk peau de soie gown with ruffle hem. It’s a gorgeous colour on her, plus I also loved the contrast Calvin Klein violet blue asymmetrical crystal sandals here.

Alba Rohrwacher: I almost didn’t recognise Alba since she wasn’t wearing Valentino. The Italian actress opted for a super chic Giorgio Armani black velvet suit with sequin top. I would rock this look – with sandals – in a heartbeat. So effortless, elegant and cool.

Models @ 2017 Tony Awards

A handful of models hit the red carpet at the 2017 Tony Awards on Sunday (June 11) in New York City.

Candice Swanepoel: While we just recently saw this Prabal Gurung Fall 2017 gown on Sofia Boutella, Candice gave it all new meaning by removing the long-sleeve shirting to fully reveal the glossy bodice piece. While it did still play the sheer game, it did so with sophisticated taste and sultry glamour. This was a far more successful outing for the design.

Alek Wek: Alek kept her boot game going strong with these Oscar de la Renta black crystal embroidered suede ‘Frederikke’ thigh high boots that stole the show. The Oscar de la Renta Fall 2017 asymmetrical LBD was simply the chic backdrop, with an Oscar de la Renta ‘TRO bag finishing the ensemble.

Models @ The 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

It was all cheekbones and centre-partings as models descended on the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City.

Bella Hadid: The model is a fan of flashing flesh but kept it sophisticated in this blazer-style dress from Off-White Fall 2017. Top marks for the flared sleeves and retro full fringe. We’ll ignore the pale pink lunch bag style clutch.

Maye Musk: I do love the humour and personality in this Rosie Assoulin Spring 2017 dress. It’s unashamedly extroverted and doesn’t apologise for its bling accessories courtesy of Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry.

Karen Elson: Ah, red and green a hallowed combination that almost never goes wrong. Unfortunately, the tried and tested combo falls short here. The Anna Sui Fall 2017 dress is a confusing array of frills, draping, and puff sleeves. Combined with heavy shoes, this look is overwhelmingly bad.

Freida Pinto & Alek Wek In H&M Conscious Collection – H&M Munich Store Opening

Freida Pinto & Alek Wek In H&M Conscious Collection - H&M Munich Store Opening

H&M opened a new store in Munich, Germany on Wednesday (April 9), with Alek Wek and Freida Pinto in attendance.

Alek Wek: The H&M Conscious collection is yet to go on sale and this pretty lace frock is already on its third outing. Sophia Bush wore this dress at the launch; Jennifer Lopez wore it again sans beaded detailing on American Idol; and here we have Alek again wearing this dress, styling it with the beaded open-toe heels from the same collection. Third time’s the charm, or enough of this dress already?

Freida Pinto: The Indian actress gave us a look at a piece from the same collection which is yet to take to the red carpet. She wore a black sleeveless top enriched with white floral embroidery which, if this wasn’t an H&M event, I would’ve assumed was a Naeem Khan piece. Paired with wide-leg pants, she styled the look with the same beaded heels and a beaded shoulder bag, adding a pop of colour via her red lips.

Alek Wek In Marks & Spencer Autograph – The New York Observer Relaunch Event

Alek Wek In Marks & Spencer - The New York Observer Relaunch Event

Alek Wek attended The New York Observer Relaunch Event on Tuesday (April 1) in New York City.

The model donned a high street dress from Marks & Spencer’s Autograph collection, which UK readers will recognise is the same dress she wore in the ad campaign for the retailer which was shot by Annie Leibovitz.

MS-Leading-Ladies-Campaign

Her flattering white dress with a green-and-black brushstroke print, which is so beloved by the British public that it’s almost out of stock, was styled with black strappy sandals and a silver glitter clutch to give this daytime dress an after-dark flourish.

2014 amfAR New York Gala Models Roundup

2014 amfAR New York Gala Models Roundup

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2014 amfAR New York Gala held at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (February 5) in New York City.

Karolina Kurkova: The Czech model looked stunning wearing a black Armani dress slashed on both the thigh and bodice, with both enriched by beaded detailing. Neutral makeup and bow-accented Jimmy Choo ‘Escape’ sandals completed her look.

Ajak Deng: Also wearing black with breathtaking results was Ajak Deng. Gearing up for a busy fashion month, she started off on the right note wearing a sparkling Kaufmanfranco Fall 2013 gown with sheer inserts which is very much on the right side of sexy.

Dree Hemingway: While everyone was wearing a gown, Dree marched to the beat of her own drum, wearing a super chic Chloé Resort 2014 look featuring a navy top, white ruffled shirt and loose-fit pants. She was my second favourite at this event after Lily Alridge.
