Prada Congo Benefit Party

Stella McCartney looks beautiful wearing a black jacquard short sleeved dress from her own Resort 2010 collection.

I love the faux leather wrap around belt as it stands out more than the runway belt, and I also love her self designed mesh sandals.

Stella does wear her hair down from time to time, but we’re most used to seeing this pulled back style.

This “just thrown” on effortless look is one of my favourite this week.

When I first saw this textured silk Lanvin Spring 2009 one-shouldered dress on the runway, I knew it would need someone on the red carpet to bring it to life and I was right.

Princess Rosario Nadal of Bulgaria does just that as the dress hangs better on her.

On the runway it seems to sit too high on the model waist.

I love her choice of an ivory clutch and pewter strappy sandals.

Absolutely stunning.

Natalia Vodianova and Valentino are still inseparable. The designer and his one-time muse arrived at this event arm in arm which is good to see.

The barefaced model wore a black ensemble including a satin skirt and jersey top, under a champagne coloured Prada crushed silk coat.

Anouck Lepere is another stunning model who doesn’t need make-up to look beautiful.

She glowed wearing a red crepe sleeved dress with gathered details on the shouldered and at the waist.

Her dress is stunning but her red and black t-bar heels are drool worthy as they have a red and black satin bow on the heel.

Gold armlets and a black bag complete this look.

Model Liberty Ross showed off her toned legs wearing a sexy black Alexander McQueen stretch lace bandage dress which she toughen up with a pair of Alexander McQueen open-toe boots with the fold-over panels up.

A Pauric Sweeney envelope clutch completes this sexy look with a bit of a edge.

    Finally Natalia Vodianova looks her age, it must be the lack of make-up, she always looks 19 otherwise.
    by the way love the black Alexander McQueen on Libery Ross

    I love Princess Rosario Nadal in Lanvin, but the rest just fails to impress me. Even Stella.
