Jamie King In Valentino – Saint Vintage Designs Launch

Jaime King hosted the Saint Vintage Designs launch event to benefit Stand Up To Cancer at the Soho House in West Hollywood, California on Saturday.

The blonde actress wore a Valentino Fall 2011 gown.

I was often bothered by the single strap across the neckline on this moss green embellished gown.

Jamie wears this gown as it probably should’ve been presented, as a high-neckline, plunging-back gown.

It works so much better on Jamie.

Do you agree?

Bvlgari jewels and a chic bun completed her look.

    Very cute! And so much better on Jamie.

    Lovely, def. better than the rather odd runway version. Just trying to determine the degree of “see-throughness” here :)

      Heh.
      In the photo it looks as if — how shall I put this? — untanned body parts are visible through the bodice.
      It may just be the lighting.

    Maybe the designer was applying inverse psychology. Apparently, it worked. She looks lovely, that’s for sure.

    I agree F.C., for sure!

    Beautiful dress on Jamie.

    I like the way she wore this. Very nice.

    Gushing. It’s so gorgeous on Jamie.

    I do agree. Freja looks like she accidentally threw it on back-to-front. I’m probably going to get slated for this but I often find Valentino aging on 20-somethings. Jaime’s relaxed hair and neutral makeup are perfect with this dress.

    gorgeous, totally gorgeous!

    Wow she looks stunning in this dress.

  11. Luiza July 26, 2011 at 21:04 #

    STUNNING, BDOTW for sure!

  12. Samantha July 26, 2011 at 21:11 #

    I love this look. She’s been hitting it out of the ballpark for me lately. Maybe BDOTW?

  13. Rebecca Z July 26, 2011 at 21:56 #

    It is a pretty dress that looks good on her, except for the fact that it is waaaay too long. Can she walk in this?

  14. Lucía July 26, 2011 at 22:21 #

    Stunning. BDOTW worthy for me.

    Jamie is glowing and I agree; the presentation of this dress on her is way better than on the runway. Does this mean she wore her dress backwards? Or has she simply altered the neckline?

    • Fashion Critic July 26, 2011 at 23:17 #

      Hard to tell.

      I have a feeling it went out the wrong way on the runway.

      • Carmen July 27, 2011 at 23:39 #

        LOL, maybe. Fashion shows can be hectic! I’ve seen on America’s Next Top Model. :D

    she’s so gorgeous in this dress. i keep forgetting that before my name is earl, jaime was a beautiful model. thank god she keeps reminding us then.

    (though, that dress is see through. that’s a shame, since she’s so lovely in it)

  17. kiwi July 27, 2011 at 05:59 #

    Lovely…Much better on her than on the model

  18. Erini July 27, 2011 at 07:24 #

    Love this on her, so romantic!

  19. Englishvers July 27, 2011 at 09:58 #

    The dress looks better on the dark haired model.
    It somehow looks more effortless ( if such there be).

  20. amber July 28, 2011 at 16:56 #

    She looks amazing!
