Social Events Of The Week

Samantha Thavasa Disney Collection, Japan

Beyonce and Solange Knowles were in Japan to promote the “Samantha Thavasa Disney Collection” of handbags.

I would’ve thought a younger face like Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez or Miley Cyrus would have been more appropriate to promote Disney line.

Anyway the sisters looked fabulous at the unveiling.

Beyonce looked svelte wearing a Akiko Ogawa Fall 2009 strapless blue patterned dress with an asymmetrical skirt and taupe heels.

It was a drastic transformation but Solange Knowles looks good with her new ‘do. I would never have the guts to sport this look myself so kudos to her.

She wore a white tank top with a cute ruffled pink skirt.

Solange has obviously been inspired by her sisters love of fierce heels, because she’s sporting a very interesting pair of Moschino Cheap & Chic Fall 2009 wedges.

DoSomething.org Celebrates The Power Of Youth, LA

Ashley Greene is becoming my Sophia Bush of 2009.

Each event she gives us something new. It was cute at the Teen Choice Awards, and sassy at this event wearing an Opening Ceremony black bustier dress with a lattice detail on the back.

Sultry soft waves, a mustard clutch and ivory Etro heels complete the look.

Shenae Grimes gives us a rich colour wearing a cute red Moschino tiered v-neck sleeveless dress, with some stunning accessories.

I love that bracelet.

Aubrey O’Day pairs her Alejandro Ingelmo woven slingbacks with a studded top and black leather skirt with an asymmetrical zipper.

Surprisingly covered up for Miss O’Day.

I’m not crazy about Leah Renee’s hairstyle but I do love the ruffles on her Notte by Marchesa strapless dress, which she pairs with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

“Bandslam” Special Screening, LA

Earlier I spoke about Leighton Meester’s weekend disaster, well Vanessa Hudgens had her own too.

She temporarily revert back to her tried and much tested boho inspired look wearing a Halé Bob’s silk chiffon maxi halter dress.

The print is hideous, the dress makes her look really short, and her feather earrings are cringe-worthy.

Not a good look.

PURE Nightclub, Las Vegas

Jenny McCartney shows us how thigh-high boots can go terribly wrong, undoing all the hard work fashion magazines have been doing trying to convince me that this look can work off the runway.

    Vanessa looks terrible. The boho look actually sometimes works with her. I wouldn’t have minded the earrings had she put her hair up, but no no no! Horrible and unflattering dress!

    I think this is one of the rare occasions where Solange actually looks better than Beyoncé. I don’t like Beyoncé’s look here.

    Beyoncé is wearing an Akiko Ogawa dress. No idea who that is though- I just read it on people.com (and yes, I am ashamed).

    • Fashion Critic August 11, 2009 at 18:12 #

      thanks, and don’t be ashamed.

      I go there to fill in the gaps

  6. Dana August 11, 2009 at 18:26 #

    I love Solange’s hair!

  7. Alicia August 11, 2009 at 18:46 #

    Solange looks so striking, and I’m IN LOVE with her shoes.

    • Fashion Critic August 11, 2009 at 18:50 #

      I just found then Moschino Cheap & Chic Fall 2009

      • Alicia August 11, 2009 at 19:05 #

        Oooh thanks!

    Fearne Cotton wore the same red Moschino dress two years ago to the Glamour awards. Is there an official term for something which is a couple of seasons old but not old enough to be vintage? Whoever Shenae Grimes is (and before anyone writes in, a) she’s not famous in the UK, and b) I genuinely don’t want to know), I still say Fearne wears it better, mainly because it’s rare to see her wearing a nice frock, she usually likes to mix it up a bit with her style rather than just pick something designer off the hanger.

    I’m immensely bored with Beyonce’s hair, btw. She always has that big n bouncy curls look, “like she just stepped out of a salon”. Now if SHE shaved her head, I’d be impressed!

    I agree with you for ashley greene, she looks pretty!

  10. Chiara August 11, 2009 at 23:03 #

    Funny, I didn’t like Solange do but now I think she works it!

    • Fashion Critic August 11, 2009 at 23:50 #

      i feel the same way.

  11. lucas August 12, 2009 at 01:08 #

    When you go up and down the page Aubrey O’Day looks like Kim Kardashion !

    • LizMelendreras/Stylist August 12, 2009 at 04:09 #

      omg i agree with you! I said that to myself before I even read you comment! Then it must be true, you know she thinks she has a butt for a white girl, so they say!

  12. shelly August 12, 2009 at 02:31 #

    ashley is freken hot!! i really love the dress!!

  13. LizMelendreras/Stylist August 12, 2009 at 04:07 #

    Beyonce’s entire look is sassy chic.
    I like what Jenny was going for but another style of dress would have worked better for her. But the look suits her.

  14. LizMelendreras/Stylist August 12, 2009 at 04:09 #

    are beyonce shoes by rupert sanderson?? or louboutin?

  15. Martin August 12, 2009 at 09:46 #

    This is the worst that I’ve ever seen Hudgens look. I can’t quite believe that she left the house in that. Eye check, please.

  16. Adam August 12, 2009 at 11:33 #

    Wow, never thought I’d say this but Solange looks more beautiful than her sister here. Have to admit I never thought of her as even vaguely attractive until now. Still hate what she’s wearing, though.

  17. Alexandra August 12, 2009 at 12:19 #

    I had a feeling you’ll like Ashley Greene! I don’t know if you remember but I was very happy when you featured her on your site for the first time. Personally I am more and more in love with her. She sported so many different looks and always looked captivating! And this dress here is so hot!

    Agreed on Solange’s hair, it’s the first time I actually feel she has her own style.

    • Fashion Critic August 12, 2009 at 12:29 #

      Yes I remember re Ashley Greene

      She’s has been flawless ever since.
