Designer Catherine Malandrino invited many fabulous guests including Mary J Blige, Dita von Teese and Garcelle Beavuious, to the grand opening of the Catherine Malandrino Maison Store in West Hollywood, last October.

The designer picked the best gown from her Spring 2009 collection, which was a very elegant nude gown, with multi chain detail draping from the neckline.

Singer Cucu Diamante, who could easily pass as a distant relative of Catherine Malandrino, as they have the same look and colouring, wore the same dress to the People En Espanol’s “50 Most Beautiful” event in New York earlier this month, in a slate grey colour.

Both woman look outstanding, as they picked wisely. Catherine soft and feminine. Cucu darker and more mysterious, with a pop of deep pink on her lips.

Catherine wins for me, as she glows in her on-trend nude gown.
