Kate Middleton attended a charity event yesterday in a pale-hued, embellished Amanda Wakeley gown. It was a dreamy, chiffon dress that highlighted her slender frame and toned arms. Kate is more often seen in ladylike daytime wear, but her red-carpet outings since marrying Prince William have been standout occasions. Of these dresses (from left to right), which one is your favorite?
We caught up with Mad Men star Christina Hendricks and actress Gabrielle Union backstage at Carolina Herrera's Fall 2011 runway show to get the inside scoop on their favorite pieces from the collection, why they love Carolina Herrera's effortless chic aesthetic, and what they were wearing to attend the event in style. Watch it now!
Carolina Herrera is routinely known for her elegant designs, and this season proved no exception to the well-dressed rule. Belted flannel coats, fur trimmed dresses, and to-die-for evening gowns all embraced the female figure and reminded us why we love getting gussied up. But what was particularly striking about Herrera’s Fall 2011 collection was the rich, gorgeous palette that ranged from deep wine to tropical turquoise — executed with impeccable taste and without sacrificing any of the designer’s signature refined aesthetic.
