Eva Mendes may have been the most high-profile celebrity at this event, but she wowed me the least.
The Calvin Klein fragrance campaign girl, wore an eggplant crescent hemmed textured dress from Francisco Costa’s Fall 2009 minimalist collection, with strappy Fall 2009 heels.
The dress was lengthen from the runway version, yet that’s still nothing to get excited about.
It’s a nice colour on her though.
Speaking of having the wow factor, Helena Christensen gave me what I always crave on the red carpet…bursts of colour.
The sultry aurban haired supermodel, wore a yellow and blue striped Marc Jacobs Voile draped dress, which really stood out from all the others.
The dress was worn with the runway leather sash, a black clutch, and black peep-toes.
Molly Sims opted for a long sleeved Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2009 dress.
I admire Molly stepping out of her comfort-zone to wear this directional piece, as we’re more used to seeing her wear cute tunic dresses.
Had I not seen paparazzi snaps of Olivia Palermo out this week with Marc Jacobs shopping bags, I may not have sussed that she was wearing a Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 dress.
Her dress has been heavily modified from the long-sleeved runway version, but the paisley pattern on the material, and the construction of the dress remain the same.
The ‘social’ completed her look with black Pour La Victoire heels, and a canary yellow clutch, with a feathered detail.
Actress Amanda Setton picked an interesting and exciting piece from the Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 collection.
Amanda gives this full skirted piece the energy needed to pull it off. I adore the stripy skirt, the sequined red top, the Pour La Victoire heels, and the bare legs.
Anna Wintour attended Salma Hayek’s wedding in a re-run, just like she did to this event.
The Editor-in-Chief of Vogue US, wore the same Marni Spring 2009 ensemble, which she wore to the 5th Anniversary of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Event last year.
She ditched the maroon tights and metallic heels, to wear this look with gold strappy sandals.
Stylist Amanda Ross should’ve known to wear a nude bra under her gorgeous embroidered Peter Som Spring 2009 top.
I also would’ve preferred this look without the black belt, and I don’t need to share by feelings about the tights, but they kinda work with this look.
