The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection: New York Fashion Week 2011

Two nights ago Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection fashion show was a rousing kick off to New York Fashion Week Fall 2011 at Lincoln Center. Celebrities like Dita Von Teese, Cat Deeley and Camila Alves walked the runway in designer red dresses to help raise awareness of heart disease as the #1 killer of American women.

Natasha Bedingfield in Reem Acra closed the show, performing her song “Strip Me” accompanied only by a guitar.

Walking the red carpet to support partner Camila Alves was Matthew McConaughey, while Susan Sarandon cheered on daughter Eva Amurri, and Bill Rancic accompanied wife Giuliana. Lisa Rinna, Kat DeLuna, Nigel Barker, Miss J Alexander, Jay Manuel, Johnny Weir, Countess Luann deLesseps, Carson Kressley, Mary Amons, and Sonja Morgan were also in attendance.

Be a Fashionable Valentine Girl

Valentine’s Day is about to come. So, be ready with the right Valentine dress, in order to impress everyone with style and class. Traditionally, black and red colors are the main colors of this festivity. In case you want a classy dress, go for Philip Lim’s latest Valentine dresses. They are all about glamor and romance.

Choose a long red dress with black gloves, especially if you are going to attend some special event. In case you want something chic and sexy, go for the eternal little black dress, but made out of lace or satin.

The high heels are the bespoke accessories on the Valentine’s day. If you want to add more romance in your wardrobe, go for a dress with ruffles. The ruffles are the biggest trend of the year, so go for it. The ladies that want the stereotypical Lolita look can purchase a short pink candy dress with a large satin belt. These dresses are perfect for young girls and can be worn for any occasion.

Of course the long red satin dress remains the classiest dress for the Valentine’s day, so check out Valentino’s latest collection. There you can find fantastic bright red pieces, combined with high heels and glamorous accessories.

Addy van den Krommenacker: glam warrior

Known for his glamourous red carpet dresses that are in hot demand from many a Dutch celebrity, designer Addy van den Krommenacker opted to use Amsterdam fashion week’s catwalk as the tool by which to reveal his winter 2011 / 2012 pret-a-porter collection. This year’s collection marked something of a point of difference for van den Krommenacker’s ready-to-wear offerings with the designer opting for a stronger design aimed at women who are willing to show off their figure. Out was his common use of red, pink and other bright hues, as the colour green and different cuts came to the fore.

The army and nature were inspirations for the show. We saw a lot of feminine and elegant dresses in the colours green, gold, brown and floral prints. And by a lot, I mean a lot! A somewhat epic endeavour, the show comprised a great many dresses. Every time you thought it was the final piece, there came another dress that was even more beautiful than the last!

The show contained a lot of A-line frocks with long voiles. And while there was a lot of glitter and gold in the show, it stayed within the bounds of being elegant and classic. Overall he used a lot of fabrics that can easily be seen as cheap, like panther prints; but Krommenacker is someone that can turn these fabrics into very elegant pieces. Krommenacker also showed some dresses with big collars, that gave a charming twist to the dresses.

Sarah Jessica Parker: Get The Look

Sarah Jessica Parker may not be quite as outlandishly fashion-obsessed as her alter ego Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City, but this middle-aged working Mom walks her fair share of red carpets. She always brings the glamour, even if it’s understated.

On this occasion SJP wore an anything-but-simple, one-shoulder little black dress with exquisite ruching and gathering detail. She paired the piece with a bib necklace that almost works as a collar for the dress. Parker is one to layer lots of jewelry in this way to change the neckline of a top or dress and make it more special – it’s a great trick to have up your sleeve. Black polka dot stockings, satin pumps and a medium-sized hobo bag finish off the look.

Who Wore it Best? Jennifer Lopez vs. Kim Kardashian

Singer Jennifer Lopez and reality star Kim Kardashian were both seen wearing the same figure-hugging dress by Herve Leger by Max Azria, and both girls even added a pair of similar heels by Christian Louboutin, but who wore it best?

Jennifer wore the dress to a Boys & Girls Club of America event in November. She added towering nude heels to the look, as well as loose hair and gold earrings.

Kim was seen in the same dress while out for dinner in Milan. Kim opted for a darker pair of heels in a patent finish, teamed with a leopard print clutch and a curled hairdo.

Who do you think wore it best?
