Celebrity Red Carpet Style

Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen at the Glee Season Four LA Screening

Kate attended the Glee Season Four premiere in Los Angeles wearing this stunning, black and white Alexander McQueen tuxedo inspired ensemble paired with a lace camisole.

The blonde beauty coupled her ensemble with a gold box clutch, chunky gold bracelets and Brian Atwood platform pumps.

A messy up-do, glowing complexion and kohl rimmed eye finished her red carpet look.

What do you think of Kate's menswear inspired style? Do you think a sleeker hair style would have made this a look to remember, or do you prefer the modern feel with the mussed up ponytail?

New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 RTW: Rachel Zoe

It is very apparent with Rachel Zoe's Spring 2013 RTW collection that the woman is, at heart, a stylist and not a designer. Most of the show appeared to be a collection of basic clothes spruced up a bit here and there with a hat or belt. The simplicity of the collection is attempted to be made youthful by pairing sparkling accessories to the muted color story.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a Spring showcase, the color palette is rather drab. Sticking with a matronly color story, the clothes are made youthful by Zoe's styling. These are clothes that not just anyone can pull off, despite the varied age range of the runway models. One of the more interesting colors is this jade jacket, with the sleeves rolled up, further pressing the rushed, bohemian look. 

Dashed throughout the collection are  a few prints. Some are much more successful than others. This look, for example, is a plain shape made more interesting with the print and the attention to detail on the placement of her accessories. The models feature sleek, blow-away hair I'm sure is modeled after Zoe herself.

 

Finally, I've included this gray look to add more thoughts on the collection. This gray isn't particularly a color gray I can imagine being worn joyfully during the Spring but is once again styled in very young taste with razzle-dazzle hat and large purse worn with the strap across the body.

New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 RTW: Reem Acra

The lights open in a brilliant blue with a runway reminiscent of a reflection pool. As the first models take to the runway, it is apparent that this show is something to talk about. Reem Acra reels us in from start to finish, starting with a sportswear collection featuring a slashing technique that made me think of a tire born, mudslinging pattern. Mainly shown in crisp whites, black and an uncharacteristic spring hue of navy blue, Acra pops color into foot wear selections through use of vivid shades, accenting the importance of selecting classic and transitional pieces while adapting accessories for the budget-conscience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Acra also stuck to a trend seen across many runways: avoiding skinny pants. This silhouette is on its way out and being replaced by wide legs and trousers. Skinny is not fully gone though, it is moving to skirts and dresses, as the business wear collections feature pencil skirts and structured jackets, with a focus on collars and necklines. While we saw a few high, statement collars at Acra, the feature was a texture change in the lapels, catching light and focusing the eye towards this trend area for Spring. 

 

The lone patterned trench stuck out in a “Why was that there?” moment, but overall Acra scores high marks. We were also a little taken aback by a few highly sequined ombre pieces in soft pink at a time when ombre has been trending out everywhere except on Pinterest.

Moving into evening wear, an area Acra is renowned for, her strong emphasis on modernizing an art deco embellished mermaid silhouette tripped up two of his models. We were left with mouths open, lusting after the slim fit dresses with rhinestone accented sheer side panels -- a little naughty, a little nice, but all high fashion in our eyes.

 

 

 

 

The overall fashion favorite was a stunning red evening dress that floated down the runway as the model teased your attention to another masterpiece of surprise. The inner silhouette was a sheer netted, slim fit garment with red crystal embellishments and a snake away collar piece running from the bust to the collar bone. An underlying theme of Acra’s collection was also those hidden and beautiful surprise touches that take her one step above her fellow designers.

We at the Fashion Wrap Up offices give the Reem Acra S/S 2013 collection two high heels!
