CMT Awards: Ashley Greene In Donna Karan Atelier

AshleyGreeneDonnaKaran CMT Awards: Ashley Greene In Donna Karan Atelier %tag

Who: Ashley Greene

Where: At the Country Music Awards 2012 in Nashville, Tennessee

Wearing: A pale pink Donna Karan Atelier cocktail gown with a feather trim and beaded embroidery detailing, teamed with gold Nicholas Kirkwood  heels

Verdict: I can’t think of a better fit for Ashley Greene, Donna Karan really has helped her standout on the red carpet in her gorgeous designs, I know that she is the current face of DKNY but I feel this ongoing collaboration is more than just advertising there is a real synergy between the two and I am loving the outcome.

This dress could have been a little too flapper and old-fashioned for me if it wasn’t for the subtle pale pink colour and the exquisite beaded embroidery. I am also loving the her layered hair and those amazing gold strappy Nicholas Kirkwood heels – they are the perfect finish for this dress.

Met Gala 2012: Ashley Green In Donna Karan Atelier

ashley Met Gala 2012: Ashley Green In Donna Karan Atelier %tag

Who: Ashley Greene

Where: At the Met Gala 2012 in New York

Wearing: A custom-made white Grecian Donna Karan Atelier gown with silk chiffon pleats with draped beaded fringe made up of silver-lined bugles, and sea beads, and a stone encrusted sequin bustier; teamed with Jacob & Co. chandelier tassel earrings and flower diamond ring, and a metallic clutch

Verdict:  Last year Ashley Greene was one of my best dressed, and once again Donna Karan has done her proud with another exquisite gown, even better than last year. New York-based designer Donna Karan really has been on a roll of late, I loved Nina Dobrev’s gown, Cobie Smulders did just that at the Avenger’s premiere, and Alice Eve looked incredible, so I wasn’t surprised that Donna saved her best gowns for the biggest fashion event of the year.

Last year Ashley had a princess vibe about her with the intricate detailing and the fishbone train, this year she has a sultry feel to her look with this sexy-yet-feminine gown, which fits her perfectly and I love how she teamed the white with silver accessories, very chic and I love her hair down.

Who do you think look better Ashley or Nina?

Met Gala 2012: Nina Dobrev In Donna Karan Atelier

NinaDobrev1 Met Gala 2012: Nina Dobrev In Donna Karan Atelier %tag

Who: Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrev

Where: At the 2012 Met Gala in New York

Wearing: A black and antique gold Donna Karan Atelier gown inspired by the Donna Karan devoré dress immortalised by Gwyneth Paltrow in the film Great Expectations. The asymmetrical draped gown has been modernised with silk chiffon and burnt out metal sequins and gold-lined beads, with single layer sequin straps to her back

Verdict: Wow, what a way to debut Donna Karan Atelier, the designer’s new high eveningwear collection, as Nina Dobrev looks stunning styled by Ilaria Urbinati. Just for the combination of the black and gold it will hit the best dressed lists, add in the beauty of that gorgeous train, the sexy back, and the feminine draped detailing to the bustier, and it is simply stunning.

When Nina hit the pink carpet there was a lot of traffic, but seriously all the photographers were shouting for her, as she looked completely radiant, and totally captured everyone’s attention. Also check out her gorgeous H.Stern earrings, they are so delicate and lovely, work perfectly with such a gorgeous dress.

Without a doubt Nina’s dress will be one of my best dressed of the night, I have been waiting to see it for weeks since I knew Donna Karan was dressing her, and I most certainly wasn’t disppointed, if anything I was blown away even further by the brilliance of Donna Karan.

What do you think are you loving Nina’s look?

The Raven: Alice Eve Shows Off Her Curves in Donna Karan

AliceEveDonnaKaran The Raven: Alice Eve Shows Off Her Curves in Donna Karan %tag

Who: Actress Alice Eve

Where: At the Los Angeles screening of her new flick The Raven

Wearing: A black belted calf-length Donna Karan cocktail dress from the pre-fall 2012 collection, with an asymmetric strap across her shoulders and a split to the pencil skirt; teamed with gold jewellery and blue suede Brian Atwood open-toe heels

Verdict: I love it when you get old-school Hollywood glamour on the red carpet with a modern twist it really does make me sit up and notice. I love the cut of the dress on her, fits perfectly and really accentuates her curves, which is nice to see. But what I love most has to be the usual asymmetric strap across her shoulders, on first glance it distracted me slightly, but when you take in the whole look with her foxy curves, her wavy blonde bob, those gorgeous bright blue heels and the gold ornate jewellery it totally works.

I am really loving that Donna Karan is getting a lot of red carpet action at the moment, I loved Christa Allen in a dress that reminds me of a fifties prom dress, and I was completely blown away by the amazing Cobie Smulder in that sexy bronze and black gown. Each gown completely different, but each one is very feminine and exquisitely made. I hope this Donna Karan trend continues as I am loving the variety on the red carpet.

Red Tie Affair: Christa Allen In Donna Karan

ChristaAllenDonnaKaran Red Tie Affair: Christa Allen In Donna Karan %tag

Who: Revenge actress Christa Allen

Where: At the annual American Red Cross Red Tie Affair in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless red Donna Karan dress with large pleating to the skirt and fan pleating to the bust from the pre-fall 2012 collection, teamed with a black studded belt and black pointed-toe heels

Verdict: Firstly, I love large pleats on a skirt, but what draws me in with this dress is the exquisite structured fan detailing to the bust – how amazing is that – for me it instantly adds drama and flair to a simple-yet-flattering silhouette and I love it. Add the studded belt and black heels and it adds a sophistication perfect for a charity gala, seriously one hot look.

The only thing I am not loving is the casual vibe to her hairstyle, I want to see her shoulders so the ruffle on the bust shines, but this is me just being extra picky – but the large earrings do make up for it!!!

Also if like me you have been waiting for the Revenge, which every American seems to be obsessed with as it centres around the Hamptons, it is coming to the UK later this year as E4 have bought the rights – I can’t wait!!!

The Avengers: Cobie Smulders In Donna Karan

CobieSmulders The Avengers: Cobie Smulders In Donna Karan %tag

Who: Actress Cobie Smulders

Where: At the premiere of Marvel’s The Avengers held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A slightly modified black and bronze Donna Karan gown from the spring/summer 2012 collection, full of intricate embroidered detailing and a plunging neckline, teamed with a dark clutch and amber earrings

Verdict: Wow, Scarlett Johansson might be the lead in the film but Cobie Smulders, who I have to admit I had never heard off, really did put herself on the map last night with this uber-sexy Donna Karan gown. Everything from her cool name, come on I can’t be the only one wishing my surname was Smulders, to her gorgeous wavy locks, and that incredible patchwork gown – this is one hot look and she looks fabulous.

Styled by Ilaria Urbinati, who also looks after Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrev, I can’t wait to see what other looks she pulls for Cobie on the Avengers promo tour.

Amber Heard Art of Elysium: Amber Heard In Donna Karan %tag

Who: Actress Amber Heard

Where: At the Art Of Elysium’s 5th Annual Heaven Gala in Los Angeles at the weekend

Wearing: A custom rose gold beaded Donna Karan gown

Verdict: Wow, Amber is one seriously sexy lady, she is a complete bombshell in this perfectly formed gown. I know that it was made for her but Donna Karan really does understand a woman’s figure and she has given Amber just the right mix of sex appeal and elegance. I love it.
