The DJ wore a yellow paillette patterned sleeveless dress with white panels and a deep V-neck from the Marni S/S12 collection and teamed it with a woven leather satin clutch and perspex heels from Missoni.
Anticipation for this year's Met Gala was high and the event definitely didn't disappoint. While it's true, there were several disappointing looks from people like Coco Rocha and Jessica Chastain, the majority of the looks were really strong and it was really good to see people research and commit to this year's Schiaparelli theme.
The above is a round-up of my favourite looks. Regular readers will know that I was on the dubious side about Joseph Altuzarrateaming up with Lana Del Rey but I was pleasantly surprised by the results. Her dress, along with her new dark hair, looked beautiful and so did Carey Mulligan in her golden Prada creation. As an Olsen fan, I'm generally impressed by anything either twin turns up in and last night was no different. The black dress from The Row that Mary-Kate Olsen was classically simple but still powerful.
Yesterday Diane von Furstenberg and CFDA CEO Steven Kolb held an event in New York to announce the nominees for this year's CFDA awards. The nominees were not a surprise. The usual names like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen for The Row was in the mix alongside Jack McCollough and Lazaro Henandez for Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, Rachel Roy and Alexander Wang.
Last year's fashion icon award went to Lady Gaga leading many to question how they will be able to top that. Even Kolb tweeted: 'How do you top @ladygaga from last yr? We will!' This time the award will go to Johnny Depp, the first male to ever receive the award but while I've always been a fan of his, I'm not convinced that he can top Gaga.
Rachel Roy always manages to attract a crowd with her presentations and when you look at her collections it instantly becomes clear why. Over the years Roy has perfected the easy sophisticated look whilst also managing to keep her designs fresh and subtly quirky. While her pieces are not necessarily pushing new ground, she does have a knack for giving women want they want to wear whether that is a killer blazer or the perfect pant. It's no surprise then that she call the likes of First Lady Michelle Obama as a fan.
This season she was inspired by the modern landscape and definitely translated in the earthy colour palette and mixture of textures from crocheted hemlines on leather dresses to the fur on jackets and knits snoods that came with a lot of the looks. Prints popped up on belted over the knee length dresses and one blouse, that came with a thick green, white and blue stripe, was the perfect piece to take you from the office to an evening event. Roy is known for her tailoring and while we were disappointed not to see her signature blazers or trouser suits make an appearance, the rounded cocoon shape on a yellow and black double breasted coat made up for it.
On the whole the shapes were severe, particularly on dresses that sat just above the knee and on sturdy leather skirts and this was seen through onto the hair to which was poker straight.
New York Fashion Week started with a bang last night as the annual amfAR New York gala event took place to kick off this season's festivities. The gala, which raises money for HIV/AIDS research, always see the best of fashion and entertainment come under one roof and as you would expect, the red carpet outfits were strong. Models were particularly on form last night. Joan Smalls looking incredible in a black Givenchy gown, Anja Rubik sported that much loved black and gold Gucci flapper dress and Liya Kebede broke the penchant for gowns by opting for this season's two tone trousers teamed with a white blouse.
Rachel Roy's business continues to go from strength to strength. Last year she worked on a special collaboration with basketball player, Amare Stoudemire and now, the designer confirmed that she is expanding into footwear.
The new collection, set to hit stores in August, will feature everything from heels and boots to sandals and flats with prices ranging from $195 to $600. "I don't want shoes unless they are strong and sexy...My collection is just that -- strong and sexy," she told WWD. "It represents the woman I want to be."
Last night Madonna's movie 'W.E' was screened by the Cinema Society and Pigaet in New York and as you would expect, a lot of people came out to support. Unfortunately though, there wasn't much to get excited about in the outfit stakes. Rachel Roy and Olivia Palermo sported two of the better looks of the night and Chloe Sevigny left us confused in this red dresses and dramatically oversized leather coat.
Back in August WWD reported that Olivia Palermo was launching a blog in August but it's September now and there's been no sign of a launch from the former 'The City' star. But Fashionista caught up with her this week at the Rachel Roy show where she confirmed that her blog is about to launch.
"I pushed it back a little to make sure it's perfect; so it will launch at the end of this month for sure," she revealed. "We're just working out the dates right now but I'm really excited." Content-wise, you can expect a mixture of fashion week content, style tips and images of whats inspiring her from her international travels.
