The Huffington Post Pre-Inaugural Ball

I never imagined I would see this blue velvet Alexander McQueen Fall 2008 coat, with gold embroidery on the red carpet, but of course it would be Trudie Styler who’d make it happen.

Trudie is not afraid of taking risks. They don’t alway pay off, but I really do like what she has done here.

She looks regal, like a queen without her tiara, but she would have to lose those gold hooped earrings.

When I first saw Kerry Washington in this gold Jasmine di Milo Fall 2007 dress, with the sheer yoke I hated it. But to be honest it has grown on me. There is something quite futuristic and McQueen-esqe about it.

Kerry was safely consistent last year, so it’s nice to see her wear something with a bit of an edge.

The Jasmine di Milo Fall 2007 collection seems like it’s having a bit of a revival. First Rihanna, now Kerry.

She completes her look with a black Mary Norton clutch, with gold detailing.

Demi Moore arrived with her hubby, wearing a stunning silver and black sequined dress, which she wore with the heavenly Christian Louboutin Eugenie satin pumps.

Jessica Alba wore black pants and a black tank, but she brighten up her look with a gold blazer, gold peep-toes, and a gold Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch.

Marisa Tomei wore a black dress with bronze bubble hem. She completed the look with black tights, pumps and her Fendi Borderline satin clutch.

Shakira wore a strapless royal blue Carolina Herrera gown with black detailing on the side.

Kate Walsh arrived wearing a strapless Missoni floral printed dress, with brown sequined bodice.

    Wow..so many sequins at this event!Kerry Washington and Demi Moore look stunning and super sparkly..i adore their look, especially Kerry’s! Shakira looked cute..no wow-factor but still great. Jessica Alba’s look is the kind of casual-chic outfit i like seeing on the red carpet: casual yet sofisticated. And YAY for another great Missoni dress, this time worn by Kate Walsh..who i think looks even more stunning after her divorce, love the haircut!As for Trudie Styler..i do appreciate her effort..but this is just not a kind of style i like..infact i only liked a few pieces from the fall McQueen collection..but i agree about the fact that she pulls it off fairly good.

    When I’ll be over 40, I want to be like Demi Moore… I think she found somewhere the elisir for immortality..!! She’s even more beautiful than every other younger actress at that event!
