Chanel’s Benefit Dinner For The Natural Resources Benefit

The celebration for our Oceans to benefit the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Ocean Initiative was sponsored by Chanel in Malibu, LA last night.

Kate Hudson: The mother-to-be arrived wearing a black Chanel draped asymmetrical dress with Brian Atwood ‘Debra Due’ peep-toes and a snake-skin clutch. As always she was glowing and continues outdo many other mothers-to-be on the red carpet.

Courtney Cox: I’m very surprised that Courtney didn’t wear black. The actress wore a navy and beige tweed Chanel Spring 2011 dress with black t-bar heels. Her dress is very similar to a dress Naomi Watts wore earlier this year.

Camila Alves: The TV host also opted for black shoes with her white Chanel mini dress. The dress was paired with a Chanel cropped jacket from the Resort 2011 collection.

Amber Valletta: The model would’ve been one of my favourites at this event had she opted for heels which were more complementary to her pink and navy tweed Chanel Spring 2011 dress. A black clutch completed her look.

Ali Larter: I’m guessing the actress got lost on her way to Malibu beach.  A cover up to a Chanel benefit?  REALLY?

Bryce Dallas Howard: The actress needs help. Her style choices since we discovered she was pregnant have been less than flattering. Rachel Zoe, Victoria Beckham, Selma Blair, Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson above have all managed to work sophisticated maternity styles, so why is Bryce struggling so badly?

For a Chanel event I find myself being incredibly disappointed by all excluding Kate Hudson.

    This looks like the fashion show for a church second-hand sale.

    I am no Kate Hudson fan, so it surprises me to find myself liking her look more than the others. Courtney looks so washed out, and if you hadn’t identified her, I’d never have known Camilla Alves who is usually my favorite. Bryce is such a beautiful woman, but this dress doesn’t flatter her.

    Bryce Dallas Howard, “Oy!” That was actually what I was thinking when seeing that picture, and Ali Larter in at a Chanel event in a cover up: Really?

    Sadly I’m not in love with any of those looks I love Camila Alves dress and the jacket but I don’t like them together

    Bryce finds it difficult because she most properely does not have a stylist.

      I think it’s kind of refreshing to see someone who follows her personal tastes only, without the help of a stylist, as long as the results are these. I may sound unpopular (and I’m surely am), but I love Bryce’s style. I’ve got a thing for the loose dresses she’s been sporting recently and I think she looks radiant in them. I can’t imagine her wearing something different or sporting a Victoria Beckham pregnant style (that would be honestly disturbing).

    I totally agree with you. It’s hard to believe it’s a Chanel event, looking all these women. Plus, it seems that Camila Alves wears shoes different from each other… maybe it’s the photo, but her left shoe seems open-toe… strange… Amber Valletta’s dress is so cute, why black pumps? It seems like in California they’re considered the most elegant shoes. Ali Larter’s outfit cannot even be commented, I’m speechless.
