Miranda Kerr took a walk on the wild side Thursday night when she accompanied designer Roberto Cavalli to the opening of his Just Cavalli flagship store in New York's SoHo neighborhood. For the occasion, Kerr chose a gown that combines leopard print — one of Cavalli's favorite prints — with black fabric. She accented the dress with a black leather studded belt and a snakeskin clutch. Do you think this look works, or do these elements not play well together?
When Victoria Beckham gives back, she does it in a big way — and it doesn't get much bigger than her shoe closet, apparently! The heel-loving style star and her husband, David Beckham, have donated their clothing to the British Red Cross Shop Drop for the Philippines effort, in which all proceeds go to helping those affected by the typhoon. The items were available this morning at the charitable foundation's shop in Kensington & Chelsea.
According to the organization, "the couple's collection includes dresses, tops, suits, and shoes from labels including Dolce & Gabbana, Jimmy Choo, and Roberto Cavalli." We definitely spotted those designers in the mix, so read on to see which items Victoria retired from her closet (hint: two exact pieces are pictured above) and her reactions — as well as those of fans — to parting with her prized possessions!

Accompanying many of the bold fashions walking the Fall 2013 runways earlier this year was a distinct, almost subversive kind of makeup. The look was undone but well done, or, "I fell asleep with my makeup on and this is what it looked like when I woke up." Thankfully for all of us nonmodels, smudged, kohl-lined black eyes and berry-stained lips are very translatable into real life, and both are excellent ways of making over our Fall 2013 beauty routines.
1. Even out your complexion with a matte foundation to create a blank slate for your eyes and lips. Try Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation ($36).
2. To get a deep black eye, start with a black cream base like MAC Blacktrack Fluidline ($15). Using a black kohl pencil, smudge liner around the eye keeping things a little messy for a smoldering, smoky look. Try Avon Kohl Eye Liner in True Black ($7), which has a built-in smudger on the end.
4. For the lips, apply a berry lipstick and blot with a tissue to remove any glossiness. Try Annabelle Twist Up Lipstick in Vamp (inquire for US pricing), MAC Lipstick in Sweet Succulence ($15), or Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick in Racy Red ($8).
Yvan Mispelaere has found another coveted design position just over a year after leaving his post as creative director at Diane von Furstenberg. Roberto Cavalli announced on Friday that Mispelaere has joined its team as design director.
WWD reports that the role was created for Mispelaere, and his first collection for the house will be presented for Fall 2014.
Before coming to Cavalli, Mispelaere did stints at Chloé, Valentino, Louis Féraud, and Gucci. He started as DVF's creative director in 2010, replacing Nathan Jenden. (Since Mispelaere's departure, von Furstenberg has assumed his role.)
When he left DVF's studio in September 2012, Mispelaere said, "I can't thank Diane enough for the opportunity to work with her and such talented people. The group is now well-positioned for even greater success, and I am eager to take on my next challenge."
Minimalist beauty may definitely be a trend for Milan Fashion Week Spring 2014, and Roberto Cavalli is going right along with it. His models wore barely there makeup as they walked down the runway clad in glamorous fashions. Flawless skin, brushed-up brows, and a swipe or two of mascara was all it took to make their natural beauty shine. Hair was kept down and center parted and was slicked down from the part to the ears.
If sexy's what you seek, look no further than Roberto Cavalli. But for Spring 2014, the Italian label wasn’t just about "sexy." At today's Milan show, the designer sent his powerful models down the runway in retro Old Hollywood gowns, glamorous fur stoles, tough-girl biker jackets, and some of the fiercest pastels we've ever seen.
When it comes to picking out a sexy gown, Irina Shayk and Beyoncé appear to have the same taste. Irina was the first to don her black Roberto Cavalli cutout dress at the All Is Lost premiere at the Cannes Film Festival back in May. Then, last night, Beyoncé chose the same plunging gown in white for the 10th anniversary party of husband, Jay Z's 40/40 club in NYC. Irina's gown was definitely on the more revealing side, while Beyoncé's look blended sexy with ethereal. Both ladies clearly let their gown do all the talking — and really, that's all they needed. So take a good look at these two in their Roberto Cavalli gowns, then tell us, which bombshell's take do you prefer?
There are few things the fashion industry likes to do more than support a worthy cause, and on Friday Roberto Cavalli, along with a bevy of supermodels and bold-faced names, did just that at the annual Life Ball in Vienna, Austria.
The glittering event took over Vienna's City Hall Square with an enormous runway and a stage made to look like an Indian Palace — fitting, considering this year's theme was the ancient anthology One Thousand and One Nights.
Cavalli added even more glamour by dressing models Karolina Kurkova, Nieves Alvarez, and Eva Riccobono, among others, for a retrospective show of his work. Adam Lambert, Azealia Banks, and Fergie gave performances at the event, which included speeches from former President Bill Clinton and Sir Elton John.
