DALLAS, Jul 30, 2009 / FW/ — Parties and movie premieres are becoming as important as the catwalk when it comes to looking at fashion trends.
Camila Alves, Brazilian model and girlfriend of actor Matthew McConaughey, glowed in her Poleci clay dress while attending the “Livestrong” party celebrating Tour de France this past weekend in Paris, France.
Though Poleci has been around for 20 years and carried in over 1,000 stores plus its free-standing boutiques, the Los Angeles-based label has remained under the radar, one of the reasons why celebs love wearing them.
Camila Alves, like Jennifer Love Hewitt, Halle Berry, Eva Longoria, Marg Helgenberger, Sandra Oh, Jennifer Garner, Teri Hatcher are regular habitués at the Poleci store in New York City’s Meatpacking District.
Speaking of New York, during the screening of “Taking Woodstock” last Wednesday, July 29th at the Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema, model Brianna Domont wore a crème silk crepe dress with ruffle shoulder detail from Bensoni’s F/W 2009 Collection.
A comedy-drama movie based on the book of the same name, “Taking Woodstock” follows the true life story of Elliot Tiber (Demetri Martin), an aspiring Greenwich Village interior designer whose parents owned a small motel in Upstate New York and, at the time, held the only musical festival permit in the entire town of Bethel, New York. Tiber offered both the Catskills motel and the permit to the Woodstock Festival’s organizers.
Premiered last May at the Cannes Film Festival in France, “Taking Woodstock” opens in U.S. theaters on August 28, 2009.
Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, actress Kristen Quittrall, famed by her role in Transformers 2, was recently seen on the red carpetwearing the Tango Fantasia necklace by Tara Moor.
The smooth, natural line of the Tango Fantasia necklace glides provocatively down through a dazzling ring of gemstones and encloses itself around the wearer’s neck. Though delicate in appearance, the Tango necklace speaks boldly about the Argentinean dance for which it is named, using balance to represent the passionate rhythm between man and woman.
