From the Valley to the Upper East Side: Kelly Rutherford at the NY Fashion Week

During the latest Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York, all the Gossip Girl cast was busy in attending events and fashion shows, and our favourite lady, Kelly Rutherford, was no exception. While the younger actors enjoyed going at parties and club-hopping, she did her own duty as a mother, too.

Let’s take a look at the outfits she was spotted in.


On 12th September she left her home in Manhattan with her children Hermès and Helena (in a Bugaboo stroller) in tow. I absolutely love her outfit here, simple and country chic. She wore skinny jeans with brown riding boots, a plain dark grey tee and a comfy Prince of Wales jacket.  Her accessory is her trusty Hermès Evelyne bag in Etaupe, which perfectly matches with the neutral shades of the clothes.


She was leaving home to bring her children to a playdate, how cute! She was among the guests at Hautelook Fashion Playdate, an event hosted by Katie Brown and Lucy Sykes. Kelly’s mother, Ann Edwards, was there too. I just love these pics, where Kelly is playing with her two adorable children. It looks like she changed her trousers: in the pics she’s not wearing jeans, but black pants.

Later that day, she attended the Alice+Olivia fashion show, wearing a fashionable outfit.


She wore jeans with a black scoopneck t-shirt. She chose simple accessories as well: a pair of Christian Louboutin Simple patent pumps, her Hermès Trim bag and a nice multi-strand chain necklace. As usual, she kept her hair in a bun and her make-up to the minimum.

On 13th September Kelly glammed up for attending Tuleh fashion show.


She wore a gorgeous strapless printed dress, which showed her enviable decolletage off, and Christian Louboutin Simple pumps. She proudly carried one of the best pieces of her Hermès collection, the Kelly bag in Parchemin.

After a few days, on 17th September, she attended Ann Taylor See Now, Wear Now fashion show at the Public Library in New York.


Doesn’t she look like a modern embodiment of Hitchcock’s flawless blonde heroines? She was wearing a little black dress, nothing showy or revealing, yet she looked sexy and beautiful.


She paid homage to the designer wearing one of her pieces, a dress with a draped neckline. She accessorized it with the usual Louboutin pumps, a charm bracelet and her Hermès Kelly bag in black.


Wow, I love this pic! Kelly sat next to Vanessa Williams during the show. It’s so nice to see two of my favourite tv actresses sitting one next to the other (and having fun) at a social event.

The Fashion Week in New York ended on 17th September, but I’ve just found these recent pics of Kelly and I thought to share them with you. On 21st September she was among the celebrities who attended Obakki women’s new collection launch in New York.


She wore a lovely outfit, where all the items are grey pink, a lovely neutral shade which perfectly suits Kelly’s pale complexion. She paired a simple satin tank top with a skirt, and added metallic gold flats, diamond earrings and a statement necklace as accessories.


Though being a huge fan of statement necklaces, I don’t like this very much. It matches well the rest of the outfit, but the shape of the decorations (half-crescent) doesn’t convince me at all. On the other hand, I love her flawless make-up. I’m glad she hasn’t used botox so far: it is very rare to find an actress who accepts aging as a natural moment in everybody’s life.

On 22nd September she attended a cocktail party hosted by Tod’s and Vanity Fair for the release of the book Italian Touch. The event took place at Tod’s Boutique in New York.


She was really stunning, wearing a gorgeous beige cowl-neck sleeveless dress, her trusty Louboutin pumps and Kelly bag in Parchemin. As a mother, I can totally understand her pose: she often puts her hand on her belly and this is reminiscent of her recent pregnancy.


The close-up is so lovely! I like her make-up, especially the peach blush she’s wearing, and her jewellery (diamond earrings and a gold ring).

Now the third season of Gossip Girl has started, I’m looking forward to see Lily back on track. What do you think of the first two episodes? Do you like S and B’s outfits? I’m quite disappointed by what I’ve seen so far, but I understand the change in the protagonists’ closets is connected to the plot.

Source, source and source.




    1. I have the same feeling as you 😦 Apart from a Hermès bag (my favourite is the Kelly bag), I’d love to have a Chanel 2.55 jumbo flap bag. Before turning 40, I’d love to buy one. Sigh, maybe if I start saving now, I should be able to achieve my goal.

  1. I only watched episode one which at first looked a bit over the top and vain, but you know that something deeper, dramatic and engaging always lies underneath and will soon emerge… Love it.

    As for the outfits, I liked when all the ladies (but Ms B) arrived at the charity pole event wearing hippiesh maxi dresses. : )

    1. Yes, I hope something deeper is yet to come, because I didn’t like the first episode very much (the second is way better, btw). In any case, I’m sure Lily’s comeback will spice things up a bit.

      You’re right! All the ladies – but B, of course – wore maxi dresses at the polo event. Notte by Marchesa peach dress on S was the best, imo.

  2. Her outfits are gorgeous indeed, but she’s the kind of woman that would look great also with clothes bought at the market.
    I would like a Kelly bag too: poitiron please 🙂

  3. Ciao!,
    leggo qui sopra il tuo parere riguardo alle freschissime prime due puntate,condivido,ed aggiungo che all’interno della puntata certi outfit sono riusciti a sembrarmi meno peggio di quello che mi erano sembrati nelle foto rubate dal set,non però le acconciature di Blair (la treccina ingellata con il vestito di Bendel continua a farmi venire i brividi…).

    Spero che Lily torni presto,a Serena serve sicuramente qualche consiglio,elegante e bellissima Kelly R. con l’abitino di Ann Taylor.


    1. Dalle prime due puntate abbiamo per lo meno capito perchè Blair farà a meno dei cerchietti, d’ora in poi. Certo che l’acconciatura ingellata e il vestito fiorato in lamè sono pessimi, e non penso che vederli in video cambierà la nostra idea a riguardo.
      Da quanto emerge dalle foto che emergono dal set, purtroppo S continuerà a procedere sulla strada del sexy a tutti i costi, che noia! Immagino quindi che i consigli (eventuali) di Lily le saranno serviti a ben poco. Ad ogni modo, non vedo l’ora che torni; senza di lei, si percepisce un’assenza importante!

  4. Si si decisamente,attendo il ritorno di Lily,a figura intera perchè mi ero un pò stufata nella seconda stagione di vederla solo in primo piano o seduta con pancia nascosta!.

    Certo per aumentare il nostro senso di nausea Serena continuerà a vestire Leger con stiletto e per quanto riguarda Blair,avrà anche rinunciato ai cerchietti ma fino ad ora vive la più bella storia d’amore televisiva degli ultimi anni (oserei dire dell’ultimo decennio,ma ricordo che hai già affrontato l’argomento ampiamente…),è stato così dolce vederla,sconfitta,mentre si infila nel letto del Bass dormiente,peccato sporcare così belle federe con tutto quel gel…:-)

    1. Sigh, lo so. La scelta di scrivere in inglese è stata fatta per tentare di uscire dalla nicchia in cui “Dallo Spazio” si era comodamente sistemato. Non so se questa versione porterà a qualcosa, ma il solo fatto di essere letta da molte più persone, non può che farmi piacere.

  5. Thanks a lot for featuring her style in your blog. I think the time has come for our age group to emulate Lily instead of Serena (nothing wrong with her style!).

    1. I agree with you. I wish I was as young and beautiful as Serena/Blake to dress like she does, but I’m not, so I’d rather turn to Lily/Kelly, a lovely example of elegance!
