Hey there Bombers and Bombshells!
I am free from the shackles of Ready-to-Wear now that Fashion Week has moved on to London (hang in there, Claire!). I had a relaxing weekend full of delicious dining, much-needed napping, and a little gratuitous birthday boozing (Happy 25th, Hannah!) With the exception of a few unfortunate souls, our celebrity friends seemed to keep it cute fashion-wise.
Let’s take a look:
Uh, WOW, does Nicole Richie look amazing, or does Nicole Richie look amazing? The celebrated designer hit up the October issue cover party for DuJour magazine in a Maria Lucia Hohan blouse and skirt, House of Harlow 1960 shoes and clutch, and Michael Spirito rings and earrings. Haute!
Now for the obligatory Kim Kardashian mention. The reality star flashed the paps her ever-surprised-looking mug in a rather cute ivory bubble dress, Balenciaga leather biker jacket, statement jewels, and those Kanye West x Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. I dare say, I think Kimmy’s found a way to make those shoes look kinda cute! Call me crazy, but I happen to like them with this dress. Thanks for this, KK.
Oh, Kat Graham, you were doing so well. The actress downgraded a perfectly adorable Motel bustier top with a dowdy schoolmarm skirt, white blazer, and white platform booties at the Variety Power of Youth event. I give her points for that super cute Melody Ehsani ‘Queen of the Jungle’ necklace, and the makeup, but this look is otherwise a hmm…
Jordin Sparks was also in attendance, pairing a dress from her ‘I’m MAD, Are You?’ campaign, with some Marc by Marc Jacobs wedge sneakers. Loving those kicks!
Brandy and Kelly Rowland performed at the Sisters Only event this weekend. Both ladies looked great in their blouse-short ensembles.
Ciara opted for a grungey look for a night out at club Amnesia this weekend. Meh.
Rihanna was spotted leaving one of her fave Santa Barbara eateries, Giorgio Baldi in a pair of Converse hi-tops, black washed denim shorts, and a Watch The Throne tee she almost certainly got for free. She finished her look with a pair of sunnies and her beloved Melody Eshani ‘Queen of the Jungle’ necklace.
Holly Robinson-Peete was amongst the guests at Longoria’s shindig. The actress was the picture of class and elegance in a striped colorblock bodycon dress. Hot!
Dania Ramirez was also there, looking super sexy in Hervé Léger. I’m loving the wine-colored lip she’s sporting here.
Angela Simmons celebrated her 25th birthday at the Martin Lawrence Gallery in NYC. The young entrepreneur rocked a dress she co-designed (she says she sketched the frock) with Edwing D’Angelo. It’s actually pretty cute, no? Buddy Tika Sumpter attended in another flaw-free ‘fit (can’t go wrong with a good pair of Charlotte Olympia pumps!), as well as Uncle Russell, who is cute as a button in his pullover and fitted!
In case you were wondering, nothing has changed: Padma Lakshmi is still prettier than most. The Top Chef hostess looked gorgeous in a sheer, lacy gown at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
Lady Gaga, bless your heart.
That’s all! What did you guys do this weekend?
