The CFDA, WWD & Variety Celebrate Runway To Red Carpet Initiative

To celebrate the inaugural launch of the Runway to Red Carpet initiative, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Variety and Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) hosted a star-studded luncheon on Tuesday (February 20) at the Chateau Marmont, which was sponsored by Karma Automotive.

A range of starlets were in attendance. However, if you had just looked at their ensembles, you’d never know they were at the same event—so diverse were their modes of dress.

Olivia Munn: I like the sunny outlook of this Veronica Beard Spring 2018 warm-weather-ready suit set, with the drawstring detailing adding an element of feminine allure. Obviously, the shorts didn’t stand up so well to the creases from sitting.

Lea Michele: Opting for a more romantically feminine offering, Lea wore a Zuhair Murad floral gown with a ruffled peplum. I can imagine this dress looked very pretty in the garden outside.

January Jones: I appreciate the directional, urban-forward mood the actress was setting with this Off-White Resort 2018 look—complete with that slick-back ponytail. However, I know the deconstructed, pinstripe skirt will have many saying it looks as if she wrapped a bolt of men’s shirting material around her waist.

Introducing the L.K. Bennett x Preen Collection

Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and L.K. Bennett launch their first ever ready-to-wear collaboration today online and in selected L.K. Bennett stores.

Design duo Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi drew inspiration from the floral watercolours of Scottish artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh to create this timeless collection of luxury silk dresses, floral print skirts and soft knitwear. Rendered in a rich palette of pinks, purples, reds and blues, you’re sure to fall for this elegant capsule collection.

Olivia Palermo was of course the first to be spotted wearing a piece from the collection during London Fashion Week, wearing the gorgeous Valli dress which mixes white stripes, florals and bright colours.

The Preen designers have described the dress as a “great example of us drawing on an archive Preen design and adapting it with a new graphic floral print for the L.K. Bennett customer.”

Prices for the range, which comprises 16 pieces, start at £195 and go up to £550.

I wonder if we’ll see the Duchess in this collection?

Highlights include the Sonic Dark pink sequinned dress that will definitely attract compliments come party season.

Freida Pinto In L.K. Bennett – The Lorraine Show

Following a disappointing end to the week for Freida Pinto, she was back on top form promoting ‘Guerilla’ on the Lorraine Show yesterday (April 16).

Stripes will never go out of fashion, the key is to keep them up-to-date which Freida has done here by opting for bold, graphic mismatched stripes which we saw on the runway at Missoni and Stella McCartney.

The look, which features a pleated L.K. Bennett skirt, feels so fresh and current for the season.

I love how the white belt as adds a retro twist with the nude pumps allowing everything above the ankles to shine.

This might be my favourite look so far.

2015 ELLE Women In Hollywood Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2015 ELLE Women In Hollywood Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The 22nd annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards were hosted last night (Oct. 19) at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, California, where ELLE’s eight November cover stars, including Dakota Johnson, Kate Winslet, Ava DuVernay, Amy Schumer, Salma Hayek, Carey Mulligan, Gena Rowlands and Alicia Vikander, were honoured. There many other influential lovelies in attendance joining the cover girls, as well.

Dakota Johnson: As one of the honorees, Dakota maintained her minimalistic-chic approach in a black Calvin Klein Collection gown. Shame about the creases, but it was still a sensually glam, dressing gown moment for the young star. However, it did leave me feeling as if something was missing.

Miranda Kerr: Like Carey Mulligan, Miranda was a beauty in baby blue. The model wore Calvin Klein Collection that fused the soft hue with masculine tailoring and sexy, skin-baring lines. The belly-button-hiding belt across her enviable abs was perhaps used in an effort for a bit more event-appropriate coverage, even if it was a bit bizarre. Matching Christian Louboutin ‘Dorissima’ shoes, a Louboutin ‘Fiocco Box’ clutch, Swarovski by Miranda Kerr collection jewels, and a vivid red lip pulled the look together.

Zoe Saldana
: Dressed in tailored sophistication, the actress wore a fall-inspired Calvin Klein Collection outfit with Christian Louboutin Toeless Muse pumps. I only wish her hair had mirrored the sleek factor with a simple bun.

Nikki Reed In L.K. Bennett – SiriusXM Studios

Nikki Reed In LK Bennett - SiriusXM Studios

Nikki Reed was at the SiriusXM Studios on Monday (September 28) in New York City.

Talking a walk on the lighter side, the actress wore an L.K. Bennett printed frock in a gracefully loose silhouette.

It’s not so much the relaxed breeziness of the dress that bothered me, but that the look holistically seemed unfinished. A vibrant coral-orange sandal in combination with a sleeker hairstyle would have likely added a pretty punch to the look.

Were any of you left with a craving for a belt, as well?
