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.

Sophia Bush In Chris Benz – 2012 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Sophia Bush joined the stars on the red carpet for the 2012 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala on Saturday in LA.

Sophia looked very chic wearing a Chris Benz Resort 2011 gown.

Her two-tone satin gown collection was paired with Casadei satin pointed-toe pumps.

Her golden accessories included a Judith Leiber box clutch, bangles, rings and studded earrings.

I love the elegant updo with a few pieces framing her face.

Makeup wise, she kept to the same colour palette by opting for neutral colours along with a nude lip colour.

Sophia Bush In Chris Benz – 6th Annual Charity: Ball Benefiting charity:water

Sophia Bush attended the 6th Annual Charity: Ball Benefiting charity:water in New York City last night.

I’m all for prints and loud colours, but this Chris Benz Spring 2012 look doesn’t work on Sophia.

It looks like she fell into some drapes.

I can picture this on Yasmin Le Bon, Solange Knowles or Hilary Rhoda, but it’s a no from me for Sophia.

The layered necklaces and bracelets were just a step too far in an already overcrowded look. Her only smart decision was to opt for a solid top.

I appreciate the effort, but not the execution.

On the plus side, I do love her sweet pink lips and simple bun with loose tendrils.

Alejandro Ingelmo sandals and a crocodile clutch completed her look.

Jessica Alba In Chris Benz – Jenni Kayne Baby2Baby Event

Stylist Rachel Zoe co-hosted the Baby2Baby event with designer Jenni Kayne-Ehrlich on Sunday afternoon.

As a board member of this charity, Jessica Alba joined the many influential community mums and families in attendance, who enjoyed a day filled with shopping and fun with a portion of proceeds benefiting Baby2Baby.

Unlike most pregnant stars who go into hiding for many months, Jessica hasn’t stopped as continues to attend many events and she even had time to shoot an editorial for Allure magazine.

Jessica wore a very colourful striped Chris Benz Resort 2012 dress which is also patched with animal print.

I love the cute ruffled collar and her Hermes espadrilles.

As the dress is quite sheer and light as demonstrated by the model, Jessica added a black skirt to her look, plus she opted to belt the dress to prevent it looking like a sack on her.

Eva Amurri In Chris Benz – Perrier-Jouet 200th Anniversary Cocktail Party

We don’t see much of Eva Amurri on the red carpet these days, but she made a welcome return last night at the Perrier-Jouet 200th Anniversary Cocktail Party in New York City.

The actress wore a Chris Benz Fall 2011 floral print dress.

Her floaty tiered ruffled dress is the perfect transitional piece which can work both during the spring and fall.

She opted out of wearing the red ribbon tied to the model’s waist, but her look works fine without it.

Eva wore hair back with this look whilst opting for minimal neutral make-up.

Sophia Bush In Chris Benz – Elle’s Women In Music Event

Sophia Bush was the only person who didn’t make my eyes sore at Elle’s Women in Music Event, which was held in Hollywood last night.

The rest of the looks went from bad to worse.

Sophia flew the flag for good taste wearing a Chris Benz Fall 2010 dress.

Her modified blue metallic and mesh striped dress was paired with hot pink Alexander McQueen pumps and a mint alabaster Judith Leiber ‘Slide Lock’ clutch.

Trademark wavy brunette locks and Neil Lane jewels completed her look.
