Runway To The “Late Show With David Letterman” – Drew Barrymore In Giambattista Valli

When I first saw Drew Barrymore in this ruched Giambattista Valli Pre-Fall 2009 off-the-shoulder dress, with puffy sleeves, and velvet detailing, I wasn’t too keen.

The more pictures I looked at, the more I fell in love with this dress. Drew loves the dress, as she playfully poses for the paparazzi. She owns the dress, and doesn’t get lost behind those voluminous sleeves.

Wearing that sexy berry lip colour again, and her hair pulled back with a braided bun, Drew went from her Alberta Ferretti old Hollywood look, to a playful sex kitten in the space of 24 hours.

She’s very much becoming our girl of the moment.

Her look was complete with two-tone Giuseppe Zanotti cut-out patent sandals, which are available from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $650, or the international site for £415/€440.

    She looks great!!! But for me, it’s a “great dress, bad occasion” situation.

    Checking new stuff on LuisaViaRoma website, I’ve just noticed that this dress is finally available on pre-order for ┚¬ 2730.00..!! It’s stunning, even it’s a different “version”..

    Drew can do no wrong with her outfits lately! She looks amazing!!

    The way she poses ruins it for me. I just don’t like when people are acting in an unnatural way. I like the shoes, though.

    I love Drew but her tattoos are really not classy. They’re doing her no favors in outfits that expose them. Therefore, I prefer her in floor-length gowns.

    Drew isn’t playing these days! She looks like a princess.
    She’s finally coming into her own.

    I love it, this is so fantastic for her. It’s a dramatic look and she is having such a good time with it, it shows.

    im in love. she is fantastic, the only thing spoiling this look for me is her tattoo.

    i love her shoes.

  11. Rock*Star April 16, 2009 at 14:42 #

    WOW, she’s working the hell of this dress. And she looks FABULOUS and adorable.

  12. Vera April 16, 2009 at 11:57 #

    Lindsay should take some tips from her)


  13. serap April 16, 2009 at 11:46 #

    what i love on drew is that you can see she is feeling comfortable with the dresses she is wearing lately, she loves it and enjoys it.
    i´m looking forward for her future dresses <3

  14. Fashion Critic April 16, 2009 at 09:47 #

    Yes, if all 3 make it.

    There were some fab dresses I am putting together now, plus on Friday morning we normally get the best dresses that win Best Dressed Of The Week.

  15. SydneyCheapChic April 16, 2009 at 09:41 #

    I would say triple nominee… her Narcisco wasn’t as fabulous as these last two but so far this week noone else has come close to the same ‘wow’!

    would that be the first time the same person is featured 3 times????

  16. Fashion Critic April 16, 2009 at 09:33 #

    Victoria, she has the same stylist.

    It’s funny that you are not the first person to wonder that.

  17. Terry April 16, 2009 at 09:28 #

    She’s always been a style icon, imho, but now she’s really amazing!

  18. Gaber April 16, 2009 at 08:57 #

    Lauren is right.

    Those are some ugly-ass shoes!

  19. Fashion Critic April 16, 2009 at 08:57 #

    David, all her looks are worthy this week.

    I think the question will be which one will win.

  20. Anonymous April 16, 2009 at 08:55 #

    I love how drew owns the dress instead of the dress owning her…but i do prefer the model’s shoe choice,not really fond of these two tone shoes…either do completely nude shoes or no nude,the two tone does not really work for me

  21. Anonymous April 16, 2009 at 08:46 #

    I think we have a double nominee for Best Dressed of The Week, am I right, FC? :>


  22. ana April 16, 2009 at 05:59 #

    dis girl is just blowing me away..
    she truly is in the real sense of the word best dressed of the week

  23. Jen April 16, 2009 at 05:29 #

    I kinda sorta love this. She really pulls it off because of how happy she looks.

  24. Mira April 16, 2009 at 05:29 #

    shes gorgeous.PERIOD

  25. Eli April 16, 2009 at 05:23 #

    I actually watched this episode of David Letterman, and my jaw dropped when Drew walked out! She was working the hell out of this ensemble. She’s turning into a true fashion icon. She pulls off these dramatic, daring looks with such elegance, style, and class.

  26. The Mariah Carey Fashion Style April 16, 2009 at 04:59 #

    Oh WOW! Drew has become MY girl of the moment. I always thought she was a beautiful girl, but recently she’s gone from beautiful, to fierce, to sexy… I’d never imagine that the girl that played in Charlies Angels would become such a fashion icon! She works the dress, which I love and the red lips really add an edge to the look. I just hope she doesn’t become a Scarlett Johanson or Christina Aguilera and stick to this look forever.

  27. ivette April 16, 2009 at 04:53 #

    she looks great!!
    i love that she doesn’t modify the dresses she wears like other actresses would. both this and the dress the wore on leno a while ago looked amazing on her without modifications.

  28. olivia April 16, 2009 at 04:24 #

    It’s a bit much to wear for this show, but no matter, she looks fabulous! On anyone else the dress would have been wearing her, but she is definitely working it!

  29. Meg April 16, 2009 at 03:40 #

    She has been wearing a bit of Valli lately. I’m on the fence about the dress but she looks nice.

  30. Victoria April 16, 2009 at 02:46 #

    Wow she looks gorgeous!!!! wonder if she got a new stylist…

  31. SydneyCheapChic April 16, 2009 at 01:23 #

    gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!

    what are the chances one person is featured in “best dressed of the week”??? hehe

  32. Lauren April 16, 2009 at 01:06 #


    Drew looks AMAZING! She totally owns this dress, and it looks amazing on her.

    Lately her redcarpet looks have been gorgeous! She’s working every style and every look and unlike many people, shes making them work!

  33. cry April 16, 2009 at 00:59 #

    I’m so falling in love with her!!
