Nicole Trunfio reminds us, here, of Robert Herrick’s poem “Delight in Disorder”: “A sweet disorder in the dress / Kindles in clothes a wantonness,” wrote the poet. He knew whereof he wrote! Ms. Trunfio’s artful dishevelment (she’s wearing Leila Shams, her publicist informs us!) at one of the summer’s biggest charitable events–not to mention the Carrie-ish peek, if one can call it that, at a contrasting dark undergarment–leaves us intrigued! She doesn’t quite fit into the groomed crowd at Luna Farm–but boy, does she stick out! Read More
Hilary Rhoda looked ready for a Shelter Island bash in a summer schmatte that was much lower-key than anything you’d wear to the Hamptons. Ms. Rhoda’s artfully untucked shirt rakishly alluded to the heat–all while looking very cool. Read More
Coco Rocha looked chic and simple in red trousers and cream blouse at the Cinema Society premiere of People Like Us, sponsored by Linda Wells and Allure. In a room full of sparkly frocks, Ms. Rocha catches our attention by doing a minimally glam look–but by executing every element with grace! Read More
Cristina Cuomo looked fresh and summery in a form-fitting mustard gown with crisp white accent. On-trend wedge sandals complete the look–and provide a peek at her pedicure! Ms. Cuomo had been hosting, along with her husband Chris, a celebration for the Seven Bar Foundation in Southampton–and her look is simple enough for a summer pool party and classic enough for a charity fundraiser.

Floating above those persistent rumors that engulf Today, as well as the unbearable heat, Meredith Vieira looked cool in basic cream, with clean lines. It’s refreshingly uncomplicated–perfect for a long, hot summer night! Read More
Ms. Goding looks like a refreshing sorbet in fresh fuchsia–with a red accent that both matches her lip and adds an element of complexity to her frock. We love the complicated ruffles running down her sides and the unusual neckline: perfect for a celebration of modern art! Read More
We loved Diane Sawyer’s regal white at the Tonys, but at last night’s Public Theater Gala she dressed ever-so-slightly down without abdicating her throne as queen-consort of the New York theatrical scene. In popped-collar summer Oxford and splashy red skirt, Ms. Sawyer looked camera-ready–we just wish she’d enlisted Mike Nichols to hold his own jacket! Read More
Melanie Wambold looked striking in an over-the-top black gown, leavened for the warm weather with playful white polka dots. At an event where her fellow guests dressed in conservative jewel tones, Ms. Wambold’s youthfully-preppy-yet-elegant look stole the show.
The often-gaudy chanteuse showed up to the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame Induction ceremony in a tasteful blue jacket and coordinating but not matchy tea-length skirt–looking both youthfully high-spirited and age-appropriate. The peep-toe shoes complete the look without pulling focus.
Libby Parker looked simply elegant at a cocktail party celebrating Cornelia Guest’s book Simple Pleasures, in a yellow sheath with black brushstroke pattern. The look was completed with an unconventional yellow-orange handbag which somehow complements the mustard dress without pulling focus.
