Haute Looks...

Lupita-Nyongo Orange

My brand new fashion obsession Lupita Nyong’o was seen wearing a chic Antonio Berardi creation. The orange fitted sleeveless dress features a round neck and folded flap detailing on the back. She paired the dress with a pair of animal print pumps annd a red clutch. Someone is quickly becoming a red carpet pro.


Taylor Swift attended the premiere of “One Chance” at the Toronto International Film Festival wearing an ivory dress from the Calvin Klein Collection. The silky dress featured a short collar with geometric cut-outs that fell onto her waistline. Strappy golden pumps finished off the pop singer’s look.


Another one of my favorite actresses Marion Cotillard was spotted at the press conference for ‘Blood Ties’ during the Toronto International Film Festival. Beautiful as always, the French actress wore a Christian Dior Couture design. The architectural black dress featured kimono-esque sleeves and a baby blue collar that peeked out of an asymmetrical wrap. Marion finished off her look with a pair of houndstooth Dior heels with pink straps.


Dianna Agron has been seen looking “Glee-fully” fabulous while out and about promoting her latest movie, ‘The Family.’ One of my favorite looks is the Oscar de la Renta navy A-line skirt that features gold-embroidered detailing that she paired with a black tank. She finished off this look with Christian Louboutin ‘Geotistrap’ golden toed pumps and a navy Sofia Coppola for Louis Vuitton clutch.


The brand new face of Calvin Klein’s current fragrance Downtown, Rooney Mara was seen in attendance of designer Francisco Costa’s 10th Anniversary party. Rooney wore a strappy black midi dress. Rooney has had an outstanding couple of years with ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,’ ‘Side Effects,’ and most recently ‘Aint Them Bodies Saints.’ It’s encouraging to see her unique style, presence and undeniable talent finally getting some recognition as the new face of Calvin Klein’s fragrance.


Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was spotted leaving the Elle Magazine party in London. The actress/model looked fierce and lean in a black Stella McCartney jumpsuit that featured cut-out details on the front and back. Rosie finished off her look with a black & white patterned clutch and gold Christian Louboutin pumps. Homegirl’s jumpsuit game is on point.


Oscar nominated actress Jessica Chastain was at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival promoting her new movie The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. She stunned in a beautiful turquoise dress designed by Atelier Versace.


Actress Jessica Alba was spotted on the streets of New York City looking like Audrey Hepburn as she made her way to the Ralph Lauren Spring 2014 fashion show.  She chose a high necked black knit cropped sweater that she paired with a ballet-pink tulle skirt. Jessica completed her look with Ralph Lauren cat eye sunglasses, the Bliesta Calfskin Sandal and Ralph Lauren Collection top handle bag. It just doesn’t get any better than this.

US Open Tennis Champion, Serena Williams, was doing the photo call post win in New York City and sported her best look of all time. Serena wore a wool Catherine Malandrino mini skirt that featured laser cut-outs along the hem and deep pockets. She paired this amazing skirt with a tri-toned ¾ sleeve top and a golden ‘fighter’ belt by Lanvin cinched her waist. I like to believe her belt doubled as a “championship belt” just to remind people that she is a champion. The final touch to her look was a pair of peep toe laced up booties. Serena is clearly an all around champion because with this look, she is winning!
