WHO: Ashley Greene WHERE & WHEN: amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week on February 6, 2013. WEARING: Giambattista Valli dress, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry MY VERDICT: After enjoying Super Bowl festivities over the weekend, Ashley returned to New York City where she attended the amfAR New York Gala to kick off New York Fall 2013 Fashion Week. The 25-year-old "Breaking Dawn" actress looked beautiful in a ivory crepe Giambattista Valli column gown with a twisted halter neck. I love the clean lines of this silhouette, but despite liking the keyhole detail, after seeing the elegant folded design on the model, I find myself wishing Ashley's had been closed as well. That being said, I adore the enchanting gold leaf motif at the waist; it really brightens up the look further and gives it character. It only helps that Ashley's dark espresso locks were styled in glamorous side-parted curls---a look I much prefer on her over the center-part. Yes, it really makes a difference.
Hailee Steinfeld glittered like the starlet that she is when she stepped out to celebrate the new Spring/Summer 2013 collection by Erin Fetherston during New York Fashion Week last night. On the eve of Fashion's Night Out, the "Romeo and Juliet" actress arrived at The Standard Hotel in New York City wearing a super fancy fully-sequined teal embellished mesh combo dress from the ERIN by Erin Fetherston Fall/Winter 2012 collection. The flirty disco ball frock featured the nude mesh detailing at the shoulders and waist.
Nina Dobrev was looking better than ever when she joined her mother Michaela Constantine for the unveiling of their mother-daughter "Like Her, Like Me" Milk Mustache Got Milk? advertisement on Thursday in New York. The 23-year-old star of "The Vampire Diaries" rocked a fluorescent pink, plunging neck cocktail dress with satin detailing on the white carpet at the Hearst Tower. This dress comes from the Spring 2012 collection by Gabriela Cadena. I love the exaggerated 3D pleated dimension as it waves throughout the design.
Nicki Minaj was bursting with color when she attended the "Viva Glam" party thrown by MAC Cosmetics on Wednesday wearing a Spring/Summer 2012 look by Nanette Lepore! The 29-year-old rapper is part of the campaign with Ricky Martin that benefits the fight against HIV/AIDS. With her Barbie-blonde wig and signature pink lips in full effect, Nicki arrived on the pale pink carpet at Stage 37 in NYC wearing a blue, periwinkle and hot pink button-down sleeveless dress with side-cutouts and a plunging neckline complete with a bow-tie. She took it a step further by pairing a matching blazer with it.
It was all about pink power on Wednesday night as Kelly Osbourne celebrated the MAC Cosmetics "Viva Glam" party held at Stage 37 in New York City during New York Fashion Week. The Viva Glam campaign, which stars Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin, benefits the fight against HIV/AIDS. Kelly rocked a hot pair of pink and lavender "Cregger" cut-out pumps by Aldo x Mark Fast with a super cool cap-sleeve "Isis" laminated dress with architectural seams and sheer back from Kymerah. This was a great fit on Kelly -- I prefer it on her to the model as it needed a curvy shape.
Sienna Miller finally debuted her new pregnancy figure on Tuesday night when she attended The Ever Changing Face of Beauty video installation by Solve Sundsbo opening reception hosted by Stefano Tonchi, Editor in Chief of W Magazine. The 30-year-old English actress wore a black halterneck floor-length dress by BOSS Black with front and side slits in the skirt as well as the center neckline. This design was perfectly form-fitting and looked amazing on her; the high slits also gave a great view of Sienna's platform blue sandals.
Gucci girl Evan Rachel Wood selected a strapless plaid cocktail dress from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection when she attended "The Ever Changing Face of Beauty" video installation by Solve Sundsbo opening reception on Tuesday night. The 25-year-old actress looked beautiful when she arrived at the Park Avenue Armory in NYC for the event hosted by Stefano Tonchi, Editor in Chief of W Magazine. I love the menswear inspired lady-like style of the grey and cream wool flannel strapless dress and the ruffled detail at waist.
Cate Blanchett arrived for The Ever Changing Face of Beauty opening reception on Tuesday night at the Park Avenue Armory in NYC wearing a dress by Juan Carlos Obando. This event was hosted by Stefano Tonchi, Editor in Chief of W Magazine. The "Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" actress selected this artistic design straight from the designer's Fall/Winter 2012 collection that was just seen this past week for New York Fashion Week.
