Premieres, Celebrities & Dresses… Oh My!

This month just may cause Sex And The City/Sarah Jessica Parker overload here at Haute Danielle. We sincerely apologize for the nausea in advance and hope that the parade of gorgeous dresses will make up for it. Although we’re excited to see the film, the premiere completely slipped our minds. Thankfully, Andy Cohen of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” was tweeting all about it in the midst of his attendance. Says Andy: “At the Sex and City Premiere! Blue Carpet! Chandeliers outside! Every star in NYC! Glitz n Glam…. Welcome back, ladies. about 5 hours ago via UberTwitter [To follow Andy Cohen, click here] We have to say most everyone looked stunning! The makeup was fresh, the fabric choices are vibrant and thank goodness, the hair was appropriate. (Nothing worse than a couture gown ruined by lack-luster hair don’t(s).) Here’s your sneak peak before it hits the rag mags:

Sarah WOWs in this playful neon gown. (2010 Valentino Spring collection) Her skin is glowing and the soft waves framing her face are perfect. You know what else? We don’t at all mind the shoe selection. “The higher the stiletto, the closer to God.” – Haute Danielle

Kim Cattrall in almost a more subdued shade of SJP’s dress is daring with a deep V both front & back, sleek and sophisticated. Dress designed by Naeem Khan.

Cynthia Nixon is classic in Carolina Herrera. She (or a stylist) added a beautiful rhinestone leaf broach/applique to add a little glitz and we love it. That, along with the ruffles on the back of the dress, revamps the LBD. (Long Black Dress) The only critique is that the eyebrows could have been darker and the hair color needs to go back to red or some form of it. Even platinum blond with dirty roots would be better than the current dye job. Washes her out a bit.

Could you just die? Kristin Davis looks like a delicious, walking cosmopolitan. Hot pink is not an easy color to pull off past the age of 22 but Kristin does so effortlessly. It’s flirty, fun and appropriate for this event. Dress designed by Jean Desses.

Oh yeah, the leading men of SATC were there! Lookin’ dapper Chris Noth, John Corbett and Jason Lewis!

Now, no premiere is complete without a step & repeat fashion faux pas. This was a train-wreck beyond Lohan proportions. You want to look away and you just can’t because it’s so horrific. HIRE A STYLIST! It’s mind-boggling to me that tonight’s major offender was allowed to leave her house this way. It kills me because I have so much love and admiration for this actress/songbird/Broadway baby. E-mail me… Haute_Danielle@yahoo.com and I will style you for free. I truly could have done better at Nieman’s. *Choo choo* Make way for trainwreck of the night… Liza Minelli.

I get it, she’s been through hell and back but that doesn’t excuse this get-up. What material is this? It looks like leftovers from an old Missy Elliot video. Garbage bag chic? We don’t see this look catching on any time soon. Dare we say, it’s a ‘haute mess’.

Tragic. So Tragic.

Halston Puts SJP On Their Payroll

Photobucket

In all seriousness, we love Sarah Jessica Parker and apparently so does Halston. Largely rumored is SJP’s draft to become part of the creative team for Halston’s less expensive line: “Halston Heritage”. Just what will she be doing? It’s anybody’s guess until the official statement is made. The Sex And The City actress had a previously failed attempt at launching her own line, “Bitten”. The clothing line was actually well designed and affordable. Check it out here!!!

We predict she’ll do well. With a once reputable house label who still stands on a piece of fashion history, this just might make both Halston and SJP relevant again in the world of ready to wear. I fail to recall which disgrace of a fashion blog had the gall to mention fear of the Lindsay Lohan effect. (You know, that whole House of Ungario travesty – which, nobody really cared about until recently.) To that blogger I say shame on you. Shame, shame, SHAME! That said, hopefully they get smart and seek out a larger chain of stores to carry the line. Macy’s or Nordstrom’s, por favor?

Fabulous Finds

Photobucket

Good (very early) morning my little Stylistas! I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday. Thanksgiving is a time to get together and cheat without shame on your diet while surrounded by family and friends. One thing you should be eternally grateful for are the scads of clothing practically being given away the following Friday. For once on “Black Friday” I let other style starved patrons do the camping out. I did wander into a store or two later, however. I came across a fun little impulse purchase while standing in line at Old Navy that I wanted to share with you.

Love Keychain

Recognize it? Its a deliciously blatant knock off from the key chain that Jennifer Hudson gives to Carrie (SJP) in the SATC movie. Cute, no? Grab one (in either silver or gold) for yourself or for the ‘Sex and the City’ fan in your life. At just $3.50, it’s an adorable little stocking stuffer. I’d love to see or hear about any interesting finds or phenomenal deals you scored this weekend! Forward your info complete with photo to: Danielle’s E-mail and if I like what you’re workin’ with – I’ll post it.

XX, Danielle
