Making a major entrance in a caped velvet Naeem Khan gown, the Goodwill Ambassador's gold ornamentation and deep burgundy tone definitely put us in the spirit. Later, the singer took the stage and gave us a chill in Michael Kors's silver embroidered gown and icy Lorraine Schwartz jewels. The looks, while very different, had us thinking forward to our festive party looks and feeling very inspired. 'Tis definitely the season, Katy!
The piece: Michael Michael Kors Selma Bag
The price: £315
Why we want it: Anybody who has tried to find a bag that will work equally well on the weekend as it does in the office will be the first to admit: it's not an easy search. That's why we were so excited when we came across the Selma bag. It's flared silhouette, besides being very on trend, means it can stretch to fit all of your stuff, while its zip top ensures nothing will fall out as you run to catch the train. Even better, you can sling it over your shoulder to give your arm a rest. Your other bags better watch out — a new favourite may soon be added to the mix.
Miranda Kerr may no longer be a Victoria's Secret Angel, but that doesn't mean that she isn't still a sought-after model. The Australian beauty wrapped up her trip to Japan on Thursday after jetting out earlier this week to celebrate Elle Japan with Michael Kors at a party on Wednesday night. The fashionable bash fell on the same day as the famed Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which took place in New York City. Although Miranda parted from the brand earlier this year, she was reportedly still asked to walk in the show but had to skip out on the fun for her trip to Asia. "They asked me to walk in the show, and I really wanted to, but I have to be in Asia that week," Miranda said back in October.
Despite not walking in the show, Miranda still sent love to the Angels on Instagram, posting a throwback photo of herself yesterday with Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio and writing, "Sending love and best wishes to the Victoria's Secret Angels from Japan."
The models on the Michael Kors runway always look breezy and beautiful, and Spring 2014 was no different. Like Michael's past collections, sporty beauty was a common theme in the makeup, hair, and nails. Lead makeup artist Dick Page wanted an effortless makeup look with defined features. "You can sense a brow or a lip or the eyes, but everything's just a little bit diffused," he said. A slight berry flush on the lips and gently defined brows made for an overall healthy, vibrant look.
Lead hairstylist Orlando Pita wanted the girls to look like they'd come off of a night out. A messy, loose bun with plenty of free strands was pretty but had a bit of an edge. And there were no hair elastics in sight; Pita created the knot using just twists and pins. Jin Soon Choi swathed the nails in what she was calling a "foundation nude," a colour so effortless that it blended into each models' individual skin tone.
Katie Holmes popped up in the front row at the Michael Kors Spring 2014 runway show in NYC today. She wore a colorful head-to-toe look from the brand and posed with the designer backstage before taking her seat next to actress Kate Mara. Katie isn't just at NYFW to take in shows — she also presented her own collection, Holmes & Yang, with her stylist and business partner Jeanne Yang earlier this week.
Katie has been hanging in the Big Apple while filming her latest project, Miss Meadows, and tending to her injured daughter, Suri Cruise. Since breaking her arm a few weeks ago, Suri has been sporting a tiny cast with funny messages written on it, including one from a friend reading, "No butt smacking with this!"
Michael Kors must have been feeling groovy while designing Spring 2014. With a '70s soundtrack — including Bette Midler and Fleetwood Mac — floaty printed tea dresses, belted cardigans, and slit maxi skirts wafted down the runway in a '40s-meets-'70s mashup that is utterly wearable down to the chunky platform sandals. There was a heavy emphasis on luxe holiday wear with '40s-style two-pieces and even a pair of denim shorts. We never say this after a show, but we couldn't feel more relaxed.
Jennifer Aniston's latest flick premiered in New York last night, and the actress made a wow-worthy red carpet appearance alongside costar Emma Roberts and Olivia Wilde. Jennifer picked a strapless Burberry dress with our favourite new hemline — midcalf. She gave her beloved Stuart Weitzman wedges a break for the occasion, wearing grey suede Casadei sandals instead. Emma picked a black Autumn 2013 Michael Kors dress that flashed some leg from the front but extended to the floor in the back, and she got her sparkle courtesy of Chopard diamonds. Rounding out our stylish trio was Olivia, who accented her strapless red Osman dress from the label's Autumn/Winter 2013 collection with Jennifer Meyer jewelry.
We loved every lady's look, but there can only be one winner. Who was your favourite?
Angelina Jolie is no stranger to the color black, and now she's brought her preferred hue to Tokyo. First, while catching a screening for In the Land of Blood and Honey, the actress was ladylike in a black flared Michael Kors gown from the Pre-Autumn 2013 collection, which she paired with nude pumps and pearl earrings. Then, for the World War Z red carpet premiere, Angelina changed from one black dress to another. This time, it was a more streamlined one-shoulder gown by Saint Laurent. In true Angelina fashion, she once again kept her accessories to a minimum. While both ensembles are basic black, they are anything but ordinary. Which silhouette do you prefer more on Angelina — flared or fitted? Cast your vote below!
