New York Fashion Week: Gucci/Madonna Party Style Reviews by Michaela Jedinak, UK Stylist and Fashion Analyst Part 2

New York Fashion Week was a hot bed of activity, but almost none of the shows were as celebrity laden as the Gucci party that Madonna was hosting on the lawn of the United Nations building. This is part 2 of Michaela Jedinak’s style review of the celebrities and select outfits. (She covered the SAG Awards red carpet reviews) . Check out her site: www.joyofcolour.com
Heidi Klum

Colour: OK, not the best colour with her hair down, skin colour and so close to the garment, but since it is an evening event with this gorgeous smile she manages to lift the colour
Shape: She has the body and the legs for the dress but…..this unfitted dress around her waist doesn’t flatter her and unfortunately this shape is best on very young girls who are still growing into curves. You need to be very young, skinny and still have not fully blossomed. This shape is ageing her, doesn’t show off her waist. It would have been better to combine it a long pair of trousers and a big belt to give it a more grown up look and shows that is a woman in her own right.
Style: Hmm, she hits all the buttons what is currently in fashion bracelet, hair cut with a fringe, the dress, the shoes, the red nails, but they don’t work together in harmony and they don’t work on her and make her look awkward. Also, she has amazing legs, but I think for this time of year and for this type of event going for such a youthful shape of dress with such a mini length is just not appropriate.

Overall Rating:**
Two Stars


Gwyneth Paltrow

Colour:: It is good colour on her….
Shape: But not with this dress. Why oh why Gwyneth!!! You are a drop dead gorgeous woman and accomplished actress, so why choosing such an impossible and ( I am sorry I have to say) it is a truly ridiculous outfit for you! This shapeless dress, with this mini length combined with this oversized bow for this time of year at this event- just screams Minnie Mouse out in town or someone who forgot she is not sweet 16 anymore. Though she has the legs, but this length of shapeless dress is not a dress for a woman of her calibre!( and in this colour!!!!) It is more suitable for a young, thin girl, who not only is still growing into her womanly curves, but also can still pull off this cuteness and innocent look in colour, shape and bow detail. It is so ageing on her and makes her look that she is trying too hard ….
Style: The look is too cute and sweet for her age, for this type of event and for the accomplished actress she is. And if you think it could not get any worse then you just look at her shoes that she wears this dress. These bandage shoes in this colour with this dress, so very wrong with each other. She could have saved it by wearing glamorous eye catching shoes or wearing more edgy with knee high boots or with black tights. The shoes are in their own right horrendous! Sorry, Gwyneth, but I have never ever seen you styled so badly and inappropriately dressed .
Overall Rating:* One Star!

Lucy Liu

Colour: The icy grey colour works ok, because she wears her dark long her hair open, the dress away from face and has the black bow as a strong balancing feature to her hair.
Shape: Why oh why- does a beautiful woman goes for a dress that is the latest thing in fashion rather than what works for her best. The dress is just clutter and full of detail and her petite frame and height can’t deal with it all .You need to be very tall that each of the details on the dress come to play, but on her – it looks just cramped. She shows her beautiful shoulders, but everything else like the bow, the busy layered overskirt in such a full length is all XXL for her and overpowering her petite frame. Her shoes are beautiful but not with this dress on her. The ankle straps are a wrong choice when you are of a petite height and wearing such a long length of dress…it is shortening your leg…she should have chosen a pair that lengthens her leg and not doing the opposite.
Style: The pink clutch bag doesn’t help wearing it with all the bulk is cluttering her whole from the bossom line down- she should have worn it under her arm to balance the volume. Also, the colour should have been deeper and is too bright for her colouring when wearing such an overall light dress.
Overall Rating:** Two Stars!
