Valentino at ShoppingTheTrend Celebrity Edition
Spot: Valentino red lace dresses as seen on Kristen Bell at the 2012 People's Choice Awards & Rooney Mara at the Italian premiere of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo".
With so many looks to cover this time of year (as awards show season kicks off), instead of just publishing dresses in single file (which gets a little boring, if you ask me), sometimes it makes more sense to combine dresses from the same collection. It becomes more memorable...
The 2012 People's Choice Awards were held last night, and Kristen Bell was a presenter with her new co-star Don Cheadle - their new show 'House of Lies' premiered just last week on Showtime, about management consultants. Kristen looked a treat in a red lace and leather dress that was oozing Valentino, specifically Spring/Summer 2012. I've always been a Kristen fan, she has that likability factor... and
Shopping Spot: Buy Valentino dress online as seen on Claire Danes at New York Women in Film and Television's 31st Annual Muse Awards & more..
Just catching up some random events, more specifically, some new season arrivals recently seen on celebrities. And since Valentino has been dominating celebrity fashion lately, why not add one more to the list...?
Claire Danes attended two events in one day last week - the official launch of the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum in New York, and also the New York Women in Film and Television's Muse Awards, where she was being honored. Given that one of her events was all about Valentino, can you guess..? Yes, you know where I'm going with this, she wore Valentino to both events!
For the Women in Film Muse Awards, she chose a color block dress from
Shopping Spot: Buy Valentino animal print shoulder bag online as seen on Sofia Vergara leaving Westfield Century City Mall in Los Angeles.
It's time for another Celebrity Handbag Update, and how about the popularity of Valentino's rockstud bags among celebs..? It seems that the last few major spots have been Valentino.. Katherine Heigl, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, and now we have the lovely Sofia Vergara!
In case you missed it, Sofia has been making the rounds one the talk show circuit, and not just to talk about the new season of 'Modern Family'. She just launched a new collection for K-Mart, and has been wearing her own pieces during the interviews - on The View, she even presented a mini-runway show.
TIFF Red Carpet Fashion: Freida Pinto in Valentino pale pink beaded dress at the 36th Annual Toronto International Film Festival - 'Trishna' - Premiere
Freida Pinto looked pretty as a picture on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival last night - she was attending the premiere of her new film 'Trishna'. This is a film set in contemporary India based on the Thomas Hardy novel 'Tess of the d’Urbervilles'. And if you know anything about poor Tess, get your tissues out...
She chose Valentino for the red carpet, which continues to be a top celeb choice this season (Olivia Palermo in Monaco, Keira Knightley in Venice). From Resort 2012, this is a minimalist pink & nude twinkling beaded dress that fit her like a glove, and sparkled in all the right places. I saw her being interviewed, and have to say that photos don't do this dress justice! No online availability, as it's from Resort 2012.
Shopping Spot: Buy Valentino brown silk chiffon dress online as seen on Kate Bosworth from the 37th annual Deauville American Film Festival - Opening Ceremony.
Valentino worn on the red carpet of a Film Festival.. no, we're not talking about Keira Knightley, Gwyneth Paltrow, or even the Venice Film Festival! The The 37th annual Deauville American Film Festival kicked off on Friday with an opening ceremony that included Francis Ford Coppola, Ellen Barkin, Bill Murray, and a lovely Kate Bosworth!
Fashion aside for a moment, she has split with my fav vampire, Alexander Skarsgaard (loving Eric on this season's True Blood!), but seems to be very happy with the new fella Michael Parish. He's a director (directed Kate in 'Big Sur', which will be released next year).. and that's also him holding
Spot: Valentino black lace dress with pleats as seen on Jaime King from CBS, The CW And Showtime TCA Party Held At The Pagoda Beverly Hills.
Jaime King struck a fabulous pose one the red carpet at the CBS, Showtime & CW Summer 2011 TCA party, and my goodness, she can just do no wrong these days. However, you do know she was a model, right..? This gives her a huge advantage over other actresses as she knows 'zactly how to pose (and pretty much how to wear any dress she wants!).
She chose Valentino, a modified dress from the Fall/Winter 2011 runway.. and if you're going to take any trends away from this piece, they should be pleats and lace.
I love this dress, the details are lovely.. delicate lace, flattering drop waist, and that skirt with knife pleats.
Spot: Valentino nude dress as seen on Jessica White from 12th Annual Art For Life East Hampton Benefit in New York
Wow, check out the lovely Jessica White this weekend, as the model turned sometime actress attended Russell Simmons' 12th Annual Art For Life East Hampton Benefit in New York. And this is definitely the season for the Hamptons, when New Yorkers rush to leave the city for the beach (I know some of those folks!).
As for Jessica's fashion, we would recognize her dress anywhere, those signature structured organza swirls by Valentino.. and it's hard to believe this dress was from Spring/Summer 2010! There is nothing wrong with wearing a dress from last summer, of course, I just can't believe a whole year has gone by
