2009 Prix De Marie Claire Awards

Dannii Minogue’s J’Aton Couture gown is outstanding. I’m in totally awe. She has worn pieces from this designer in the past, and the results are always spectacular.

The structure and detail is exquisite.

The peplum at the waist reminds me of the similar detail on some of the dresses from the Nina Ricci Fall 2009 collection.

I am very surprised Elle McPherson aka The Body, picked this Gucci Spring 2009 silk chiffon kaftan, as it covered her entire body.

Her toned figure was totally hidden under the shapeless dress.

Speaking of shapeless dresses.

Lara Bingle usually shines so brightly on the red carpet. This time her black and white dress fails to excite me.

    Wow best dressed is going to be hard this week. First Drew and now Kylie! I also hope Joy is on there…
    Still while it may be hard to choose a winner, I’d rather have an abundance rather than a drought 😉

    **jaw drops to the floor** Danii Minougue is FIERCE. My best dressed of the week for sure. Some women would have let the dress wear them, but she totally works it out. Loves it.

    Anissa, you mean Dannii LOL.

    There has been a drought for many weeks now, with too many obvious winners.

    This week will be interesting.

    We still have Thursday nights events to come.

    Dannii! So amazing! I was under the impression that she’s really tiny, but she looks so statuesque in that dress.

  7. Raquel April 16, 2009 at 19:19 #

    I actually like Lara’s dress..

    FC have you seen Emily Blunt photos in the new Vanity Fair? AMAZING!

  8. Fashion Critic April 16, 2009 at 19:21 #

    yes I have. It’s beyond amazing. just haven’t had the chance to put it together yet. If there aren’t too many events tomorrow I may post it then.

    Danii looks incredible! That dress does wonders to her body, best dressed of the week, the month. Love it so much.

    I really like Elle’s Gucci kaftan, the blue is an amazing colour for her, it screams “diva” also, it’s not easy to carrie such volume.
    It’s unexpected but in the best sense, she can go for Herve Leger or something stupid like that with that body but this is such a great breath of fresh air.

    Elle looks so awful in that dress. she’s “The Body”, and then she comes out looking like a slutty mother of the bride. the color is nice, just kill the chiffon overlay

    awww i’m so torn this week! So many to choose from..

    it would be good to feature an Australian designer as the best dressed though :-)

  12. Fashion Critic April 16, 2009 at 22:18 #

    SydneyCheapChic, Dannii is definitely up this week.

    I adore this dress.

    It gonna be hard to pick a winner.

  13. Ling April 16, 2009 at 22:50 #

    I’m really quite impressed by Dannii, I don’t remember her being this stylish! It’s usually Kylie who’s thought of as the fashionable sister!

  14. Anonymous April 16, 2009 at 23:19 #

    OMG, Dannii looks so great!
    and now what am I going to do? 😉
    how to choose between Dre, Diane, Dannii? 😉


  15. Catherine April 17, 2009 at 02:31 #

    wow…would you look at that dress!
    love J’aton, great to see them mentioned on here :)

  16. Louisa April 17, 2009 at 06:51 #

    The boys from J'Aton have done it again!! They design the most fabulous, flattering dresses with such va-va-voom! Dannii looks gorgeous! I'm from Australia and we can't get enough of them here –



    Just beautiful!!

    OMG, Dannii looks fierce, her dress is so structured, so amazing, classy but edgy at the samed time… I used to think she was a fashion follower a little bit tacky sometimes with heavy make-up …
    Gucci SS09 was one of my favourite collection of this spring and, despite I like this dress on Elle, I just whish she picked another dress from the collection or maybe this cute white long dress which MariaCarla Boscono wore from Versace on the runway…
    Glad she didn’t go for Hervé Leger Brigade though

    Elle is amazing here! i don´t understand why she must wear figure hugging dresses just because she is The Body! I mean a fuller woman can easily look fat in this dress, and it won´t just suit everyone. The dress itself is very fitting and the overlay does the contrast.
    This is the way caftans should be worn,and it is very flattering on her. sexy, sensual but not too revealing. definitely not shapeless. love it.

  19. Fashion Critic April 17, 2009 at 14:57 #

    I disagree, the dress dwarfs her and she’s a 6ft tall woman.

    Not a good look.
