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.

2012 CFDA Fashion Awards Round Up

Shala Monroque: The socialite gaves us a double preview. The first her; cute bangs, the second is her Jason Wu Resort 2013 dress. The collection is yet to go live on yet this is our fourth look at the collection following Karlie Kloss, Diane Kruger and Jessica Stam. Shala’s look features a black knit top with white botanical beaded collar teamed with a black silk zibeline skirt with white botanical degrade beading. I have to say it is my favourite look from the collection so far. Black satin pumps and a Jason Wu ‘Karlie’ embroidered box clutch completed her look.

Heather Graham: The actress wore a custom cornflower-blue Nicole Miller gown with Nicole Miller shoes, Pamela Love jewelry and an embellished Marchesa clutch. I love the earthy, boho feel to this look.

Rachel Zoe: The stylist/designer wore her favourite colour: black, but it’s a sparkler as she dazzled in head-to-toe sequins.

2009 Telva Magazine Fashion Awards

I love to bringing you red carpet stylish events from around the world, and this time we head to Madrid for the 2009 Telva Magazine Fashion Awards where Angel Schlesser was awarded “Best National Designer” and Diane Von Furstenberg was awarded “Best International Designer”.

Angel dressed many of the beautiful women at this event, whilst presenting himself in a very smart black suit.

Diane looked outstanding wearing a liquid gold gown with an embellished neckline.

Carolina Adriana Herrera and Genoveva Casanova both glammed up in Carolina Herrera gowns.

Carolina wore a stand out purple gown from the recent Spring 2010 presentation, with a central split and a criss cross detail going across the bodice.

Genoveva wore a grey Fall 2009, which was never my favourite gown from this collection but it looks really good on her.

A red carpet event is not a red carpet event without an Elie Saab gown.

Actress Paula Echevarria was breath-taking wearing a purple gown with a satin sash wrapped around the dress into a bow detail which rested on her shoulder.

Her orange jeweled clutch is by Dior.

BDOTW worthy.

I also loved Daphne Fernandez’ Hannibal Laguna Fall 2009 gown as it’s so dramatic, with the stunning embroidery details and the mermaid hem.

Daphne and the model are working the hell out of this exquisite gown. Kudos to both of them.

This is BDOTW worthy too.

Spanish writer Espido Freire’s pink Hannibal Laguna Spring 2009 dress was the most stunning on this red carpet, but she badly lets herself down with the Paco Gil shoes and and that blue shawl she’s carrying.

Things like the shawl need to be handed to the nearest lacky during photo ops.

Her jewels were by Vasari.

I think I’ve said it once…no I’ve said it a thousand times, this electric blue colour is so captivating on the red carpet.

I’m like a moth to a flame whenever I see this colour on the red carpet.

Tamara Falco looked divine in her Notte by Marchesa Fall 2009 one-shouldered gown with an embellished detail on the strap and bodice.

Arantxa del Sol looked spectacular wearing an Oscar de la Renta pleated duchess satin gown which was my favourite from the Fall 2009 collection.

She paired it with the runway belt which matched her clutch.

We’ve seen this Valentino Spring 2009 red dress many times on the red carpet and I always say the same thing.

Why would anyone want to wear a gown which is so unflattering on the hips?

Fiona Ferrer proves me right, as she looks so bottom heavy.

Alejandra Martos was kept in the shade wearing a strapless black gown, whilst Tony Acosta stood out wearing a two tone Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2009 gown with a red rosette detail on the waist.

I love the shiny effect of her black skirt.

Vanessa Lorenzo opted for a blue shapeless gown of her own design, whilst Natalia Lopez looked angelic wearing an Angel Schlesser Spring 2010 ivory wrap gown.

Whilst everyone opted for gowns, TV personality Patricia Conde picked a youthful sassy Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 black and nude ensemble.

She went head-to-toe LV, as she paired her look with a LV gold clutch and Cancan heels.

It could just be the light, but I much prefer the softer blue runway version of Monica Molina’s Angel Schlesser Spring 2010 dress.

This black Juanjo Oliva Fall 2009 gown as worn by Nieves Alvarez is so amazing that it’s such a same the detail is lost against the black carpet and black background.

Her look is complete with a Roger Vivier clutch.

Model Martina Klein was pretty in a pink Angel Schlesser Spring 2010 mini dress with a ruffled detail on the bodice.

Here are some more looks by special request.

Princess Elena of Spain looked breath-taking wearing an Angel Schlesser Spring 2010 strapless gown.

I love the cerulean blue colour she wore, as it’s more regal to the ivory runway version.

Spanish model Mar Flores’ Angel Schlesser Spring 2010 strapless gown looks so buttery against her olive skin.

The feathered detail is a nice finishing touch.

Spanish model Estefania Luyk wore a taupe Giorgio Armani Pre-Fall 2009 strapless dress, but as usual I’m more drawn to the colourful Paco Rabanne confection that actress Laura Pamplona is wearing.

Carmen Lomana opted for a silky blue Juanjo Oliva Spring 2010 dress

8th Annual Tribeca Film Festival – Vanity Fair Party

In the last 2 weeks, I’ve shown you how Celebrities love Christian Louboutin Differa 140 sandals, and how they also love Louis Vuitton Spicy sandals.

Both Debra Messing and Rachel Roy joined the ever growing list of celebs in love with these heels, at this event last night.

Debra wore a black halter dress, with her Differa beige sandals, whilst Rachel Roy, wearing an orange cowl neck ruched dress from her own Pre-Fall 2009 collection, is on team Spicy.

Tory Burch is always immaculate. Last night she wore a stunning two-tone Narciso Rodriguez Resort 2009 dress, which was strapless on the runway.

The dress had an orange banded bodice, black straps, and a sequin embellished skirt.

What I love about this look, is how Tory complimented her dress with magnificent earrings with orange stones.

The Diane von Furstenberg of course wore her own DVF orchid dress from her Spring 2009 collection, under a gold lame jacket.

The dress has a pretty pink, blue and yellow watercolour effect decorating the neckline and hem. This is such a perfect summer dress.

I love that all these women are not wearing tights.


"Forces For Nature" Benefit

Stella McCartney attended the Forces For Nature Benefit in New York last night, wearing a blue satin mini dress, with a sheer panel yoke, from her Fall 2009 collection.

The dress looks far better on the model, but I love how she accessorized her look with those edgy patterned boots, which are also from her Fall 2009 collection.

Stella’s father Paul McCartney was there, with his partner Nancy Shevell. She supported her could-be-daughter-in-law, by wearing a piece from Stella’s Spring 2009 collection.

The sequin jumpsuit was covered up by a felt coat, for which I was thankful. This is not an easy look to pull off. Amber Valletta did, but being a former model, that’s to be expected.

Nancy completes her look with a pair of kitten heels. This was the nail in the coffin for this terrible look. She how she looked without the coat below.

Ziyi Zhang managed to redeem herself, following two disappointing looks last week.

She wore a black Stella McCartney bandage dress, with tights, black sandals and a black clutch.

The halter-neck dress, has cut-out shoulders, and off-the-shoulder cap sleeves.

I’m not sure about the shell necklace. It looks kinda awkward, as I think the dress speaks for itself, and doesn’t need anything extra.

Diane von Furstenberg went against that Stella McCartney dress code, and wore a LBD, with her own Fall 2009 geometric print black and white coat, with Christian Louboutin sandals.

I love her infectious smile.

Diane von Furstenberg & Reem Acra Fall 2009

Diane von Furstenberg’s Fall 2009 collection mixed and matched patterns, knits and textures.

There were lots of prints, metallics, oversized cardigans, tunics, leggings and my favourite part of the collection was the pom-poms hats.

I don’t think we will see many of these pieces on the red carpet, but I am sure many pieces will end up in our closets..

Reem Acra’s Fall 2009
collection looked my idea of heaven. Gorgeous gowns, rich colours, and delicate embellishments.

I see so many Oscar potential gowns from this collection, as Reem is very much the go to person for red carpet glamour. We have seen that at the SAG Awards, and many other ceremonies this season.

Actresses will go gaga over the gorgeous draped designs of chiffons and silk satins in an array of colours from eggplant, teal blue, champagne, taupe, brown and black.
