Naomi Watts may have been busy over the last week busting out a mix of looks for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, but the Australian actress found a spare moment for Michael Kors’ Spring 2016 show at New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, September 16.
Naomi sat front row alongside the likes of fellow actress Olivia Wilde and photographer Mario Testino, showing us all how colourblocking can be done in a red, black and white Michael Kors Resort 2016 piece.

The bold piece made a strong statement, including a black tank-style bodice complete with a contrasting red collar, plus a centre-split skirt down bottom with curved contrasting panels.
Naomi suitably kept her hair, makeup and accessories minimal. The black double-strap heels and textured clutch kept in theme with the colour scheme, and her soft and simple makeup lessened the load of the striking colour palette.
As expected, there were so many celebrities at the show that they spilled over into the second row. Of course, Kim and North West (who was in a far better mood than last time) were there along with a smattering of Kardashian-Jenners (Khloe, Kendall, Kourtney), Lorde, Debbie Harry, Riccardo Tisci, Anna Wintour, Michael Strahan, Tyga, 2 Chainz, Miguel, Drake, Fabolous, Common and more. Bella Hadid modeled alongside Kylie Jenner, who was again cast in the show.
If you’ve ever been stood up for a date and felt bad about it, this episode of the Kate spade #Missadventure series will make you feel a lot better about it. The shoppable short, titled “The Best Company,” is a commentary on dining alone as a woman and how it’s nothing to be ashamed of – actually, it kind of rocks and can lead to some unexpected surprises.
For the short, Anna Kendrick has a hilariously fabulous dinner – or, rather, dessert date with herself, her purse and her dog when she gets stood up for a date at the Russian Tea Room. After spending some time talking to herself and her pooch (as one does on a dessert date), she peeks over to the booth next to her, the booth she usually sits in, only to discover that her precious seat has been taken by none other than Gloria Steinem, who is also enjoying a drink solo.
Now, there ain’t nothing wrong with eating alone but as we know, two badass gals are better than one. Steinem joins Kendrick for her meal, proving that sometimes the best company is right under your nose – or just a table away.
There’s no denying that since Carine Roitfeld‘s departure from Vogue Paris back in 2010, the iconic French figure has been everywhere. From starting her own magazine to becoming the global fashion director of Harper’s Bazaar and now, moving on to create her own clothing line for Japanese retailer Uniqlo. The campaign for her debut collection is currently being deliberated on our forums, after the editor-turned-designer tapped model Lexi Boling and legendary lensman Steven Meisel to produce the images.
Since such names were attached to the project, forum members couldn’t contain their excitement. “Love it, she looks like Carine which I imagine was the point,” acknowledged Benn98 the moment the images dropped.
“That’s so cool, I totally thought it was Carine in the first shot,” pointed out Wintergreen.
“This looks good! And I’m happy she’s doing a collaboration with Uniqlo, I’ve always loved her style, and the first looks don’t disappoint me. Can’t wait to see the rest of the collection!” praised a more than satisfied Zelda Zonk.
Also showing the images some love was Kite: “I love it when Carine styles models as herself… It’s like self obsession to the next level. These are great.”
Forum member kiseki was a fan too, adding, “Uniqlo, Lexi & Meisel, what is there not to like? I have faith for the rest of the campaign images.” (more…)
