Yesterday was a busy night in New York. As well as the Time 100 party, the city also played host to the Chanel Artist Dinner during the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival at the Odeon. All of the names you would expect were there like Camilla Belle, Leigh Lezark and models Arizona Muse and Karlie Kloss. Even Julia Restoin-Roitfeld made an appearance showing her ever growing baby bump
Claire Danes' red carpet choices has always been a bit of hit and miss for me. There's nothing particularly wrong with her style but her plain Jane aesthetic has never appealed to me and the same is true for this look.
To attend the premiere of 'Hysteria' during the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival yesterday the actress wore this block coloured Narcisco Rodriguez dress. It definitely works on her but I can't help but wish that she changed it up with the designers that she wears and go for something less classic and obvious or even add some accessories to add something different.
Emma Watson has had quite the style transformation of late and just like her recent outfit choices, this look that she wore to attend the 'Stuck by Lightning' premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival left me feeling split. While there's nothing wrong with the head-to-toe Miu Miu look, there's also nothing that wows me about it either.
Christy Turlington Burns, one of the renowned 'supers' from the nineties is using her own experience of childbirth to help the lives of others. During the birth of her first child six years ago she began to hemorrhage, but was lucky enough to have the staff and equipment to support her so well that she never really considered it a big deal. That was until she learned that hemorrhage is the leading cause of maternally related deaths - and from then on the 41 year old supermodel decided to use her resources to help reduce the hundreds of thousands of women that die from the condition.
Turlington Burns set to work, becoming an advocate for maternal health within humanitarian group CARE, and furthermore decided to fund her own documentary in the hope of saving lives. "I had a sort of experience that was a little bit of survivor's guilt," she told Reuters, "I was fortunate, but think of all the women around the world who aren't". Together with actor-turned-film director husband Ed Burns, she began making the documentary entitled "No Woman, No Cry", visiting Tanzania, Bangladesh, Guatemala and parts of the United States.
Last week Chanel hosted a star studded dinner in support of the Tribeca Film Festival Artist Awards Program. Everyone from model Dree Hemingway to actress Debra Messing attended.
The evening honored 10 contemporary artists, who donated pieces to the festival's 2009 Artist Awards Program. A design for each participating artist will be presented to winning filmmakers from each category. The artists include: Stephen Hannock, Clifford Ross, Robert Mangold, Hank Willis Thomas, Fritz Chestnut, Mickalene Thomas, Kalup Linzy, Tom Slaughter, SunTek Chung and David Salle.
This was Chanel's fourth consecutive year supporting the initiative.
