The 46-year-old Puerto Rican singer/actress and American Idol judge, who is prepping for her Las Vegas residency, was nothing short of drop dead gorgeous as a self-described “haute couture skeleton.”

Lopez and her boyfriend Casper Smart attended Heidi Klum’s annual Halloween bash in New York City.

She may say she’s “trouble,” according to her Instagram account, but Gina Rodriguez looked like she’d found trouble in her costume.

It may be Halloween, but it was more like The Nightmare Before Christmas for Nicole Richie.

It appears one costume wasn’t enough for Alessandra Ambrosio

But Ambrosio didn’t just flaunt her supermodel figure and set temperatures soaring in her red costume, she also proved to be one hot momma.

Blahnik to Receive Couture Council of Artistry and Fashion Award from the Fashion Institute of Technology

It’s a special first for Manolo Blahnik 

The 72-year-old Spanish designer and founder of the self-named, high-end shoe brand will receive a “career-crowning” Couture Council of Artistry and Fashion Award from the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT).

Manolo Blahnik

Blahnik is the first footwear designer to receive the prestigious international award for lifetime achievement.

Blahnik, who celebrated his namesake label’s 40th anniversary in 2012, became a late-career household name, thanks, in part, to Sex and the City, which name-dropped him reverently.

It’s one of the few international honors in fashion, decided by a committee of editors, retailers and journalists. In years past, it has been received by Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino, Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera.

 

Herrera Receiving Special Fashion Group International Award

There’s no doubt that Carolina Herrera is a superstar in the world of fashion… And, now she’ll have an award to prove it!

The 73-year-old Venezuelan-American designer, who has designed a limited edition T-shirt for this year’s Key to the Cure campaign, will be honored by the Fashion Group International this fall as the recipient of their Superstar award.

Herrera—one of 24 noted designers creating a holiday collection for Target and Neiman Marcus— will receive the honor at the group’s annual Night Of Stars gala on October 25

“Carolina is an international icon and a brilliant businesswoman. For over three decades, she’s remained true to her elegant design aesthetic in everything — from her signature collection to her bridal, accessories and fragrance collections — while presiding over a global business with a singular focus on excellence,” says Fashion Group president Margaret Hayes. “She has an innate understanding of what smart, chic women everywhere want when it comes to style and beauty.”

Last fall, Herrera gained international attention from new generation of fashionistas and increased her star power when she designed the wedding dress Kristen Stewart’s character Bella wore in the The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part I.

Past recipients include Giorgio Armani, Karl Lagerfeld, Oscar de la Renta and Donna Karan.

In addition to Herrera’s Superstar prize, Haider Ackermann, Gareth Pugh and Derek Lam will also be honored with special awards, and the Marmotti Family of Max Mara will receive the Brand Heritage Award.

Smalls Starring in Chanel’s Latest Ad Campaign

She’s a rising star in the modeling world… And, now Joan Smalls has landed an oh-so-coveted campaign…

Captured by the label’s creative director Karl Lagerfeld, Smalls and Saskia de Brauw appear as high fashion gymnasts in the campaign. The dynamic duo hit the beach wearing lightweight dresses and outerwear in the classically styled images shot at the Hôtel du Cap Eden Roc.

Smalls—who recently walked the runway for designers Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg—even performs acrobatics high above the ocean.

Don’t worry! As evidenced by the behind-the-scenes video, Smalls wasn’t exactly risking her life for Lagerfeld’s lens. But she still had to rope climb, mount a high bar and swim—all in Chanel!
