Hello-Hello, and welcome to the week ahead!
Today we begin with red carpet fashions, following last night’s Emmy Awards.
Many critics the evening’s big fashion winner was January Jones (aka Betty Draper on Mad Men) in her Atelier Versace gown.
A look at it from another perspective.
Ms. Lively changed frocks before attending the HBO party.
On the far side of the Pond, the Sun thought poorly of Chloe Sevigny’s apparel choice:
“”…what looked like a polka-dot bed sheet to the event. The toga-like ensemble was by Isaac Mizrahi Resort 2010.”
Ouch. Another gown receiving negative reviews, Victoria Rowell’s. (Ms. Rowell stars in The Young and the Restless.)
Also on hand, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian in understated gowns, although there is much discussion about the need for proper…ah, appropriate…. umm, the need for…well, there is no delicate way to say this, there is chatter about the lack of proper undergarments ‘neath the gown.
Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks wore deep blue L’Wren Scott.
Another celebrity receiving negative feedback for their sartorial selection, Sarah Silverman.
Don Draper Jon Hamm of Mad Men looked dashing in a standard dinner jacket, seen below at the Governor’s Ball.
Our favorite dress was the Valentino worn by Australian actress Rose Byrne, a fairy-tale princess gown if ever we saw one!
It is time leave the party frocks behind and move on to the topic of Fashion Week, as we still have more to cover on that front. The Tommy Hilfiger presentation coincided with the official opening of the retailer’s new 5th Avenue flagship.
Many a celebrity could be found at the party celebrating the store’s opening, as described in this post. The first look down the runway in Mr. Hilfiger’s Spring 2010 line was this Pretty in Pink grouping.
The nautical influences were easy to spot.
AP had this to say in their review:
“Hilfiger’s theme was the “relaxed glamour” of a Southern California boardwalk, which meant a surprisingly cohesive mix of crisp nautical looks and disco-era slinky styles.”
Men’s and women’s styles are seen in the same show.
Broader shoulders were evident in most pieces, but not all.
Style.com was positive in their write-up:
“… an energetic and fresh-scrubbed collection, named Beachside Romp, that was meant to evoke a SoCal boardwalk but could indeed play anywhere.”
We concur with the assessment from Fashion Wire Daily:
“A highly energetic, if not necessarily highly original, runway show.”
We did think this little dress was darling, although much too young for TP.
We hope this provides a good sense of the Spring 2010 Hilfiger line. We do have several other styles to share from New York Fashion Week, hopefully in tomorrow’s post.
Of even greater urgency, London Fashion Week is already underway. Below, the seating chart for the London Burberry show, as photographed by none other than the label’s Creative Director, Christopher Bailey.
May your Monday evening be prepalicious!
Amended to add: And may everyone in the southeast, especially Atlanta, be safe and dry.
