Where will you be?

16 Aug

The much-anticipated event listings are now official for Fashion’s Night Out, set for September 8th!
 For those not in the know,
Q: What is Fashion’s Night Out?
A: Fashion’s Night Out is an unprecedented global initiative created in 2009 in a partnership between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping.

Events take place in every city worldwide, so be sure to check local retailers and see what’s in store for September 8th.  If you’re in New York, you know very well to plan your night out — you may start on the Upper West Side and at the end of the evening find yourself in SoHo.
One of the best and favorites is Bergdorf Goodman; the department store has an incredibly detailed and star-studded schedule you won’t want to miss.  However, if you’re one to meet and mingle with designers, go to Saks Fifth Avenue, chat, play Pictionary (like last year with Chris Benz, Peter Som, Prabal Gurung, and Zac Posen).  Henri Bendel may be smaller in comparison but the New York icon certainly throws a chic, classy cocktail event!  I personally look forward to the Marc Jacobs Carnival along with 3.1 Phillip Lim, but again, who knows?  We’ll also see if the Boyfriend braves price tags at Harry Winston.


REVIEW: At the Golden Globe’s

20 Jan

Let’s take a look at who wore what and fashion highlights of the event.

    1. Natalie Portman, in Viktor + Rolf
    Although lovely and sweet, the mommy-to-be made a poor choice with shiny, easy-wrinkle fabric. Light colors like pink are difficult to appear slim in; now combining textile and body shape, her spotlight for Best Actress in a Film Drama should have been one of slight embarrassment.
    2. Anne Hathaway, in Armani Privé
    When I first saw the structure of this dress, my thoughts immediately directed to Haus of Gaga. Considering Armani has designed exclusively for Lady Gaga, I wasn’t far off at all. Tall, slender, stunning!
    3. Annette Bening, in Tom Ford
    Tom Ford, enough said.
    4. January Jones, in Versace
    As the new face of Versace, the Mad Men starlette wowed the red carpet in this classy couture piece, a seductive twist on Roaring Twenties glamour.
    5. Emma Stone, in Calvin Klein Collection
    Simple and clean. A dress like this one would have been difficult to pull off, but it fell on Emma Stone’s frame perfectly.
    6. Olivia Wilde, in Marchesa
    Absolutely gorgeous.
    7. Christina Aguilera, in Zuhair Murad
    It was so sad to see Christina Aguilera do no justice for French designer Zuhair Murad. She took his elegance and rendered it trashy. To put it nicely, she may not be as thin as she once was, but she should have the common sense to wear a dress that fit at the very least; her cleavage was overflowing, and her curves were exaggerated, unflattering.
    8. Leighton Meester, in Burberry
    As much as I love Leighton Meester’s style on Gossip Girl, I must admit this Victorian England look was too old for her. The light, sheer fabric was wonderful, but the line and amount of it (covering) was meant for someone a decade older.
    9. Eva Longoria, in Zac Posen
    What break-up, what heartbreak? Eva looked absolutely fabulous in this sleek, black Zac Posen piece. The only personal commentary I can think of: “You go, girl!”
    10. Sandra Bullock, in Jenny Packham
    A few months ago I wrote a piece on up-and-coming British designer Jenny Packham and praised her for her use of textile and palette. The dress itself was beautiful, however Sandra Bullock donned it in a rather outdated bohemian fashion. This season’s forecast? Bohemia is now urban and haute.
