This is how you make a Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 dress work.
Kerry Washington only slightly modified the dress from the runway, but it still keeps it edge, it’s still sexy and sassy. Despite this being a very strong piece, Kerry still shines through. This look doesn’t feel forced.

The actress is wearing the same Fall 2009 Louis Vuitton heels as Leighton.
Georgina Chapman, looking this gorgeous is just too easy for you.

What is it about Kate Hudson and gold gowns, that seems to always work so well?

Stella herself looked fantastic wearing a self designed black lace embroidered long sleeve plunge-neck jumpsuit, with black satin pumps.
This Gothic-like look is not what I would have expected from Kate Bosworth, and because it’s different I really like it. Bruce Willis seems to like it too.

Liv Tyler completed Stella’s Angels, by wearing a navy bead embroidered plunge neck Stella McCartney gown, with navy platform pumps.

I was excited to see Marisa Tomei, and she didn’t let me down.
The actress continues to make great style choices after awards season, wearing a vintage Adrian ivory crepe gown, with a intricate embroidered detail cascading down the front of the gown.
An ivory clutch, matching heels, and a floral hair accessory complete the look.
No one should be surprised that Renee Zellweger is wearing a strapless Carolina Herrera Fall 2009 gown. Herrera’s muse is nothing but consistent with her look.
What’s surprising is that the gown doesn’t appeared to be modified from the runway, and she’s also sporting a ponytail, which is not exactly clear in this picture.
Kristin Dunst wore something similar to this Chanel Spring 2007 Couture navy gown, to the 2007 Oscars, but she didn’t quite have the poise, and confidence to pull it off, like she did in this gown last night.
The embroidered details are divine.
Claire Danes glows in her stunning two-tone asymmetrical Armani PrivÃ© gown.
When Agyness Deyn evokes old Hollywood glamour like this, it’s hard to hate.
Her metallic silver Burberry gown only elongates her already tall frame.
Her white gold and diamond pave Bvlgari necklace compliments her gown perfectly, plus she has a yellow gold tourmaline, emerald and diamond ring.
Rachel Bilson opted for something sexy, young, short and fun, wearing a ruched green Bally by Brian Atwood dress, with Bally python slingbacks.
Lake Bell’s androgynous works for me.
Dude looks like a lady wearing a black tailored suit, whilst carrying a Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.
For half a second, I thought she was Penelope Cruz.
Surprisingly safe for Katy Perry, I would have expect her and not Leighton Meester to be the wildcard for the night.
Her Tommy Hilfiger silk cobalt blue halter gown, is very sexy and elegant on her, and I adore the colour.
The cuff has a Woman Woman feel to it.
Eva Longoria’s black wore an incredibly sexy Diane von Furstenberg dress, with an open back and keyhole front, but the necklace feels a bit heavy.
I was about to say that Dontalla Versace didn’t modify her dress for once, but I notice that her Versace Fall 2009 aqua blue gown, doesn’t have the side split like the runway piece.
Cindy Crawford has not age a day in 20 years.
The Uber model arrived wearing a cobalt blue Versace Fall 2009 gown, with safety pins, and a thigh high split.
All her accessories matched her dress, and so did her smoky make-up.
I wish Allegra Versace had worn something more colourful, but I do like the construction on her Atelier Versace Spring 2009 mini dress.
As Marc Jacobs was the chair of this event, I was interested to see which Marc Jacobs piece Anna Wintour would wear. Instead she opted for a white and black trimmed Chanel Spring 2009 Couture gown.

She didn’t go crazy, as I expected her too. Had she worn something like Leighton, I wouldn’t have been surprised.
The sexy silhouette, and the ravishing red colour, it what made me fall in love with this gown.
I have been going back and forth about Mary-Kate Olsen’s Christian Lacroix Fall 2007 Couture gown since yesterday, which is why I have posted it last.
Is it too costumey? Is she too short to pull it off? Is it too crazy and ott?
And today, I have decided the answer is no to all those questions.
The gown is outstanding, with the metallic lace and silver-embroidered bustier-basque, plus tiered ruffled skirt. I think she pulls it off quite nicely.
