Social Events Of The Weekend

Conde Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards, New York

Mary Louise Parker has been getting in touch with her flirty side lately, as she’s been wearing a lot of shorter cocktail dresses.

On this occasion she picked a Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 black and white floral dress which is modified from the runway version.

Parker’s dress is narrower on the skirt and is off-the-shoulder instead of one-shouldered.

I really love this look.  It’s so relaxed and fun as you would expect from any Marc Jacobs piece.

Kim Kardashian Celebrates Her 29th Birthday At TAO, Las Vegas

Some of you have accused Kim Kardashian of ‘brand hopping’ i.e. the second a label is hot, Kim’s wearing it.

We’ve seen her do with with Herve Leger, Balmain, Altuzarra and now Brian Lichtenberg.

I personally don’t really have a problem with this because she appears to be doing this earlier on, and not at the point when Heidi Montag has discovered the brand.

At her 26th birthday party this weekendshe was the golden girl glowing wearing a Brian Litchenberg Fall 2009 shouldered padded hooded mini dress, paired with black ankle boots.

It appears my prays for the end of the ankle boots trend are yet to be answered.

BFF Ciara was there, looking sexy in a Rock & Republic spiked leather jacket over a velvet playsuit.

Without even trying Ciara out does her host.

This girl is to gorgeous for words.

4th Annual Black Girls Rock! Awards, New York

Naomi Campbell looked radiant wearing a sexy Alexander Wang one-shouldered bandage dress, which she paired with a furry cape.

The cape may seem a bit OTT, but if anyone can make it work it’s Miss Naomi.

“Avatar” Stage Greeting, Japan

Zoe Saldana looked very elegant wearing a black Giambattista Valli strapless bustier dress, with ruffled detail on her hip.

Everything is perfect here from her hair to her jewels to her dress.

Amy Adams wore the gown version of this dress to the SAG Awards earlier this year.

The First Annual Noble Humanitarian Awards, LA

Nicole Richie looks heavenly wearing cream chiffon Jasmine Di Milo gown.

Motherhood clearly agrees with her, she’s glowing.

Teri Hatcher opted for a SuperDupa white Hugo Boss suit with gold peep-toes.

I would be petrified to wearing anything that pristine.

    OMG I love everyone outfits especially Ciara’s leather jacket and Naomi’s cape.

    Mary Louise Parker’s dress is nice, but i much prefer the “version” Rose Byrne wore like a month ago or so.
    Also Nicole Richie looks wonderful, very very cute.

    I completely agree with your ankle boot sentiments.

    Is Naomi C. wearing the same Alexander Wang dress Rihanna wore a few weeks ago?

  4. lucas October 19, 2009 at 23:47 #

        Mary Louise is one of my favorite actresses and she sometimes gets it really wrong, so I’m always so happy when she wears a great outfit like this cute Marc Jacobs dress. =)

      I’m with Lucas on this.

    @ Fashion Critic,

    You may want to do a ‘Who wore it better’ featuring Ciara and Kim Kardashian, as Ciara wore that same Brian Lichtenberg dress to her album release party in May. They even have similar, if not the same hairstyle whilst wearing the dress.

    You may also want to have one on Rihanna and Naomi. RiRi wore hers to her manager’s wedding in Venice last month.
    I personally think Rihanna wears ot better.

    • Fashion Critic October 20, 2009 at 00:03 #

      Yes I have noted both these.

      The Ciara one was going to be a surprise, as many people wouldn’t have known about Ciara wearing the same dress.

      Not anymore.

    Just wanted to add that, for me, Nicole Richie has really grown into being a beautiful looking woman – having babies agrees with her!

  7. robbie October 20, 2009 at 01:58 #

    i am so fed up of these “celebs” having their birthday parties turned into an event with the media!

    the only ones i like are zoe and nicole. by the way is nicole pregnant again? because she looks a little more curvier and happier.

    • Fashion Critic October 20, 2009 at 08:09 #

      didn’t she just give birth?

  8. Mimi October 20, 2009 at 02:18 #

    OMG Zoe Saldana for BDOTW – she looks amazing – everything down to her shoes is perfect. I love her hair, her earrings, her shoes, her makeup – wow!

  9. ben October 20, 2009 at 05:57 #

    I would love to see Nicole Richie for BDOTW, she looks amazing! And i’m loving her new hair.

    • Fashion Critic October 20, 2009 at 08:07 #

      I agree. Let’s see how things go

  10. Miri October 20, 2009 at 06:38 #

    I totally agree. Ankle Boots should just disappear now before things get worse lol

  11. Jules O'C October 20, 2009 at 08:51 #

    OMG!
    Yes, Nicole looks AM-AZ-ING
    so soft and golden – hevaenly
    but she also looks a lot like Calista Flockhart with that short messy Ally McBeal-cut imho, non?

  12. Joana Oliveira October 20, 2009 at 10:59 #

    and Teri Hatcher, suddenly, got 20 years older!!!

  13. Lily October 20, 2009 at 11:37 #

    OMG my jaw just dropped to the floor when I scrolled down and saw Nicole Richie!! I love her look – the shorter hair (no extensions I hope), a curvier body, flawless makeup and great dress. She looks so much healthier.

    And Kim just looks like she is trying too hard….

  14. Ally October 20, 2009 at 12:08 #

    You say Kim is at her 29th bday party then say something in the paragraph about her being 26.She’s really 29 right?

    Also LOVE Nicole and Zoe!

  15. Ally October 20, 2009 at 13:25 #

    Nicole looks great. I really hope she doesn’t rush to lose her last few pregnancy pounds because she actually looks amazing at this weight. A younger version of Calista Flockheart.

    It doesn’t really bother me that Kim “brand jumps”. One because she is a young starlet and if they can’t follow the trends, who can? And two, at least she isn’t boring by wearing the exact same designer every week!

  16. Kim October 20, 2009 at 14:55 #

    Nicole looks great. As far as Kim in the ankle boots SOMETIMES it works for me most times it doesn’t and this is one time it didn’t. She let me down.

  17. Landy October 20, 2009 at 17:46 #

    I’m usually not a Kim fan but I actually love the dress and I think her hairstyle fits perfectly. Zoe is always so classy but she is way too skinny. If she had a bit more weight she would fill out her clothes more

  18. jeremy October 21, 2009 at 00:54 #

    I think instead of spending time criticize some one like Kim KardASSian, we reader should acknowledge the fact that FC is complimenting to the dress and the stylist, not always the person who wearing it. Because obviously, a celebrutante like miss KK, whom history will remember her as “an amateur porn star who had a bonk-a-donk back meat balloons and a sex tape with a D-list rapper”, can never be sophisticated enough to wear something good out of her.
