WHO: Alessandra Ambrosio WHERE & WHEN: Victoria's Secret Angels Debut Dream Angels Fantasy Bra By Mouawad on November 13, 2014. WEARING: Donna Karan New York dress, Jimmy Choo shoes & Chimento jewelry. MY VERDICT: Alessandra stunned in a sultry Donna Karan gown as she helped debut the Victoria's Secret Dream Angel Fantasy Bra by Mouawad in Las Vegas. The statuesque VS angel selected the daring scarlet red graphic devore velvet gown, from the Fall/Winter 2014 collection, that features a plunging neckline and a thigh high split to show off her Jimmy Choo "Xenia" sandals.
WHO: Jennifer Lopez WHERE & WHEN: 2014 Billboard Music Awards on May 18, 2014. WEARING: Donna Karan dress, Jimmy Choo shoes & Marina B jewelry. MY VERDICT: Jennifer and her styling team made sure I didn't have to wait long to see my favorite look from the Donna Karan Fall 2014 collection on the red carpet! The "I Luh Ya Papi" singer commanded the Billboard Music Awards red carpet in a fiery gown to match; she showed off her toned legs in the scarlet chiffon goddess gown with floor length split sleeves and double thigh high slits flowing over a plunging neck bodysuit.
WHO: Rita Ora WHERE & WHEN: Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala - "Charles James: Beyond Fashion" on May 5, 2014. WEARING: Donna Karan Atelier dress and armband, Casadei x Donna Karan Atelier shoes, a Thalé Blanc clutch & Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. MY VERDICT: As the current face of the DKNY line, it wasn't much of a surprise when Rita hit the red carpet wearing a custom Donna Karan Atelier head-to-toe look. The 23-year-old singer--and "50 Shades of Grey" actress--wore an antiqued matte gold sequined silk tulle strapless gown featuring a beautiful asymmetric sculpted train. Rita used the extreme thigh slit to her full advantage by slipping on a pair of custom Casadei over the knee boots with Donna Karan Atelier antiqued gold sequins, which tied it all together--especially by coordinating with her DK wrapped armband.
WHO: Emilia Clarke WHERE & WHEN: "Game of Thrones" Season 4 New York City Premiere on March 18, 2014. WEARING: Donna Karan dress, Manolo Blahnik shoes & Fred Leighton jewelry. MY VERDICT: Emilia exuded radiance when she arrived to celebrate the "Game of Thrones" fourth season premiere at Avery Fisher Hall in New York City. The 26-year-old English actress gave a little bare shoulder action in a shimmering black Donna Karan belted halter handkerchief cocktail dress, which debuted with the designer's Fall/Winter 2014 collection during New York Fashion Week last month. The silhouette has a 1970s throwback vibe, but with a brilliant modern edge--elegant yet sultry, what a lovely combination.
WHO: Sofia Veraga WHERE & WHEN: 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 18, 2014. WEARING: Donna Karan Atelier dress, Amrapali jewelry MY VERDICT: If Sofia is going to be on the red carpet, you can always expect a major dose of 'va-va-voom'--and the "Modern Family" certainly delivered when she stepped out in a glittering gunmetal sequined Donna Karan Atelier gown. The strapless design features a scooped neckline and a contour lined frame to grab at the curves of her body; the upper portion has a true art deco vibe that degrades at the hem with brilliant bursts of bugle beading. It's clear to see that this dress was inspired by antiqued liquid metal as it simply slinks down Sofia's body.
