Armani 5th Avenue Store Opening

Victoria Beckham’s street is impeccable, but her red carpet style has not impressed me until last night.

The fashion designer, who has just shown her second collection in New York this week, outshone everyone on the red carpet wearing a one shouldered crystal embellished nude mini Armani dress.

I would have preferred a strappy sandals, but I do love her matching satin pumps too.

It wasn’t a surprise to see Alicia Keys at this event, as she has just a close working relationship with Giorgio Armani.

The gorgeous singer arrived wearing a long black coat, which she wore at the Max Azria show, which she removed to reveal a stunning coral Armani sheath dress.

She wore her dress with a amazing pair of jewel encrusted Armani Privé Fall 2007 slingbacks, which have a contrast bow on the side.

January Jones wore a stunning red Armani crystal embellished dress. Despite the colour, I expected something with more pizazz from Miss Jones.

Maybe it’s just the hair that is not working for me.

Zoe Saldana worked a 20s vibe with Marcel waves, which I think worked really well with her shimmering white dress.

I love the rosette detail on the shoulder.

Elsa Pataky is usually a lot more expressive on the red carpet, whether it’s too revealing, too short, or too unusual.

So imagine my surprised that she wore a black tuxedo, with a sexy sheer top. Too safe for Elsa.

Despite me fully not understanding what Molly Sims does – like Joy Bryant – I always appreciate her efforts on the red carpet.

She is always impeccable, which is why I’m really baffled by this fringed crochet number, over a black ensemble.

Across the Armani ranges, I am shocked that this is the best she could do last night.

I believe that is suppose to be red lipstick, but I am seeing orange.

This is a really nice skirt suit that Solange Knowles wore.

Nice if you are Cate Blanchett, or a lady who lunches, or someone who has the style, grace and sophistication to pull it off, but on a 20-something year old girl? NO.

And that neon pink clutch with that suit? NO, it does not work.

Does this girl have a stylist?

When will she find a balance and wear something appropriate?

If Kim Kardashian can do it, Solange has NO excuse.

    Molly Sims – post modelling, she's done some movies (Starsky & Hutch, Yes Man etc) but more importantly, she did five seasons of Las Vegas with Josh Duhamel and co, and was actually very good in it. Pure trash, but still a shame it got canceled last year before they could tie up the loose ends.

    The skirt Solange is wearing looks similar to the dress Camilla Belle wore a while ago … speaking of which I’m surprised Camilla didn’t attend?

    WOW for once and i never thought i would EVER say it, i actually like something victoria is wearing. i just hope her hair gets longer, she looks like a boy… with boobs.

    the rest are slightly boring, solange is just as always looking ridiculous.

    Aside from looking scarily thin, this is one of Victoria’s best red carpet looks ever.
