Not even the threat of a blizzard could keep the gliteratti from heading to many a party last night. after all, the headliners were the likes of Chanel, Hermes, Interview Magazine, Full Frontal Fashion etc etc... Let the NYFW madness begin...
Remember when Sundance was just this small little film festival in a small quaint little mountain town? It didn't attract a ton of attention and some pretty spectacular films came out of it. Well amazing movies are still screened at Sundance but the amount of attention has certainly changed (insert T-Mobile diner, MySpace cafe, Muscle Milk lounge, etc etc here) Though I've said it before and I'll say it again, my most favorite thing about Sundance is that at heart it's still an indie film festival. And the red carpets are treated as such. There are no slinky dresses or fancy updos here - the dress code is mostly jeans, snow boots and puffy jackets. You have to hand it to the starlet who can manage to look uber cool under many many layers...
Is there a more appropriate pairing than deliciously soft cashmere and Sundance? Quintessential cashmere powerhouse Magaschoni hit the slopes last night to throw one amazing dinner party for the cast of one of Sundance's most anticipated flicks, The Romantics. That's right, the one starring Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel, Adam Brody, Elijah Wood, Malin Ackerman, Anna Paquin and Dianna Agron. All hail the return of Seth Cohen!
Midst tons of snow a Tom-less Katie, a plus Fergie Josh, my most favorite Seth Cohen, Mr. Frodo and Malin Ackerman (apparently the belle of the Sundance ball) headed to the Stein Erickson lodge in Park City to not only get covered in cashmere (check out the wraps and scarves around the chairs, makes me warm and cozy just looking at them) but to fete each other and the film's producers. Can you tell I'm dying to see this movie?
Just so I can sleep at night knowing I brought at least some of the best from the last week. Let's take a quick look before starting fresh this week.
I told you I would never leave you again. In fact you are going to get sick of me I'm going to be around so much!
Just doing a little catch up on some of my favorites of the weekend. Jessica Szohr is the new Rachel Bilson in my world and Rihanna is fierce as always.

Katie Holmes debuted some serious extensions at the Japan premiere of Valkyrie.
She almost looks like her old self with the long flowing, non-Posh hair. I absolutely love it. Next thing you know she'll be getting in that little row boat and paddling over to Dawson's to climb up the ladder.
Katie was wearing a dress from Jason Wu's latest show (Fall Winter 09 collection). She paired with some stirrup leggings, which to be honest I think she actually pulls off.
I know, my renewed respect for the Holmes-Cruises is starting to scare me too.
Blame it on Rio, or the fact that I'm a very patriotic Brazilian, but I'm starting to really like the Cruise-Holmes's.
The craziest thing I might have ever said I know. But, their recent trip to Rio has really solidified my belief that they might not be totally insane after all.
Please don't judge me. Like I said, it may just be the Rio effect, I am after all a Carioca. (that's what we call Rio natives fyi for you gringos)
In any case, Mr. & Mrs. Cruise and Suri have been jaunting all over my home town awaiting the premiere of Operacao Valquiria (Valkyrie in Portuguese).
Which has given Joey Potter the excuse to break out some of her resort/spring/summer wear. Really kind of loving the 70s throw back in her wardrobe.
Check out some of her Rio-rrific looks after the jump.

I have a serious love/hate relationship going on with Katie Holmes.
I love the way she dresses casually in her day to day - like going to Brunch, taking Suri to the park, Build a Bear, etc...but most of the time I hate what she wears on the red carpet (see white silk jumpsuit).
She has great personal every day style and is able to capture that effortless cool we always talk about, looking perfectly put together but not trying too hard.
Here she is in the perfect brunch outfit for the newly arrived cold in NYC - a chunky grey cable knit sweater topped off with a Celine black wool trench.
If only she could bring her casual cool to the red carpet - we wouldn't have to go through another jumpsuit situation.
