The 22-year-old actress has begun promotional appearances for her latest film ‘Divergent’. She arrived wearing a Jonathan Saunders peony textured jacquard Helen satin crepe dress in soft fluo orange from the Resort 2014 collection.
Shailene put the finishing touches on this beautiful look with her pixie ‘do swept effortlessly to the side. She also accessorized with a peach rose lip and Dannijo Peanut stud earrings.
She’s joined by several A-list ladies in this action thriller film including Lupita Nyong’o and Michelle Dockery. Julianne arrived to the red carpet wearing a fresh-off-the-runway Prabal Gurung ivory silk cloqué hand draped dress with a paint-stained printed lurex jacquard asymmetric skirt from the Fall 2014 collection.

My feet are ready to party in these festive new sandals from Gianvito Rossi’s Spring 2014 collection. We posted on the same design in metallic gold leather several months ago but I’ve completely fallen for this pretty pink style.
They feature metallic fuchsia leather, wide front PVC toe strap embellished with pink confetti glitter, high rise heel counter, super thin adjustable ankle-strap with a silver-tone buckle, leather covered stiletto heel and padded nude leather insole. Half sizes are available.

Leave it to Gianvito Rossi to catch our attention once again this season with another fabulous new arrival.

They feature black leather animal print/camouflage spots stitched onto transparent PVC, wavy cap-toe, leather covered stiletto heel and cushioned nude leather insole.
Half sizes are available. You can also find this style in mirrored bronze leather at Harvey Nichols or a mirrored gold leather ankle-strap sandal with the same spotted design at The Corner.

My favorite ‘Downton Abbey’ star posed in a custom J. Mendel dress with a graphic silk satin colorblock plunging v-neck top (seen in the Spring 2014 collection), pocket peplum and black silk crepe floor-length skirt.
Her short brunette hair styled in a side-parted low ponytail and Mary put the finishing touches on the look with a Calvin Klein Collection block clutch, red pout, plus David Yurman Lantana earrings.
I wanted to share a quick look at my favorite new arrivals this week. Many more playful resort styles have landed and a few new spring shoes are also trickling in (on pre-order).
Notes: - Sophia Webster just launched her funky fun Resort 2014 collection and her signature Riko booties are (unsurprisingly) almost sold out however you can still snag them at Farfetch. - Christian Louboutin’s latest staple peep-toe pump, Youpi (which I think we will see on the red carpet very soon) is now on pre-order in a classic black patent leather. - Tamara Mellon’s debut collection has launched (have you seen the short film starring Karlie Kloss?)…it’s a relatively simple collection with select pieces now available at Net-A-Porter.
Pantone recently announced radiant orchid as the 2014 color of the year. This charming purple hue captivates a “harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones” while “emanating great joy, love and health”.
I always look forward to this report which covers the season’s most important color trends. This purpley shade covered the runways at NYFW and I expect to see it on our favorite red carpet starlets as well as on clothing and accessories throughout the year.
Featured below is a quick look at several spring shoe styles I’ve found in variations of this hue. I love the graphic patterns used on the Roger Vivier & Nicholas Kirkwood styles combined with a spicy cayenne red. Manolo Blahnik opted for a warmer two-tone design mixing byzantium with fandango.

Michelle Dockery is featured in the January 2014 issue of Instyle UK wearing Gianvito RossiVirtua mules. These heels are from the new Spring 2014 collection featuring black leather with a thick PVC strap and 105 mm heel. Virtua is available in dark brown and brown python at Barneys.
After being named 2013’s Designer of the Year at the Footwear News Achievement Awards, it’s clear that Gianvito Rossi, son of shoe design royalty Sergio Rossi, is only gaining momentum. Much like his father, Gianvito excels at blending just the right amount of trendy with the perfect amount of timelessness, making his creations wearable for years to come without losing a single ounce of pizazz or allure. With his Spring 2014 collection, he has impressed yet again, designing one of his strongest and most luxurious collections to date.
With every season, he pushes the boundaries a little further, incorporating trends that many would consider too edgy for everyday use with an ageless and chic construction that sways even the staunchest of tastes. Leave it to him to create a blue denim pump and have it look completely modern, instead of looking like it belongs on the cast members of Saved by the Bell! However, denim isn’t the only textile adventure he takes us on with this collection, as he also uses metallic leather in beautiful excess. Rose gold, flashy red, and silken silver are complemented by flirty fringes, extravagant snakeskin, and on-trend PVC for shoes that are a balance of eccentricity and classicality. If PVC paneling isn’t for you, he also offers a variety of sheer mesh and smooth, supple leather.
Our favorites? It’s a tossup between the blazing ferocity of his flame-motif heels or the lightning bolt themed shoes that are sure to move faster than the speed of light into our wardrobes. If we’re talking shapes, it’s hard not to bow down at the sight of his gorgeously constructed mules, one of Spring 2014’s hottest trends.
His stylish clients include Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kelly Rowland, Elizabeth Olsen, Emma Watson, and most recently Jennifer Lopez (in gorgeous Venetia mirrored rose gold leather sandals from this season, no less!). Though he came into the industry six years ago labeled as the son of Sergio Rossi, it’s clear that he has forged his own merited path to success. We’re excited to see where this It-designer’s career takes him.
