Best Dressed Of The Week – Katie Cassidy In Brian Lichtenberg

This week we agreed on the Best Dressed Of The Week.

Katie Cassidy has come out of nowhere and become our favourite girl of the moment.

She has worn array of stunning looks recently – Nicole Miller, Balenciaga and now this shimmering Brian Lichtenberg Fall 2009 one-sleeved navy dress.

She teamed her dress with Bebe Desiree leather caged sandals & Swarovski clutch completed her stunning look.

I am a sucker for anything that sparkles, so this was a no brainer for me.

She already has me anticipating her next look.

Runway To “Triangle” London Premiere – Melissa George In Lanvin

Melissa George was in London last night to promote her psychological thriller “Triangle”, in which she plays five versions of the same character.

Melissa body language tells me she’s not sure about her Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 gold metallic dress.

She’s very “Hmmm….I don’t know” and I feel much the same way, especially about the gathered detail on the hip.

The shimmering dress is gorgeous with its golden colour, but it fails to flatter Melissa.

We all know she has a amazing figure, but this dress doesn’t accentuate that. I’m not suggesting she only wear figure-hugging dress, but something that feels like she’s not hiding behind it.

Of course I’m disliking the tights with this look, but I do love her accessories which include an array of Lanvin’s signature glass pearl and grosgrain ribbon necklaces and a black Lanvin bag with a gold chain bag decorated the trademark black ribbon.

What do you think Yay or Nay?

28.08.09 Premiere

“The Final Destination” LA Premiere

If your going to wear the same Chanel dress Diane Kruger wore two weeks ago, you better look fantastic in it and Shantel VanSanten does.

A lot of you weren’t liking Diane in the dress as you felt it was too tight on the bust, but Shantal doesn’t appear have that same issue.

With her hair swept to the side in a low bun the actress oozed sexy sophistication pairing her dress with Nicholas Kirkwood pearl embellished sandals.

Sporting a classic updo to show off her gold drop earrings, Haley Webb shone brightly wearing a one-shouldered canary yellow satin Lela Rose Spring 2009 dress with black peep-toes.

I love how she stands out on the black carpet, but I feel slightly uninspired by her all black accessories.

From the white dress to the grey suede Christian Louboutin ankle boots, I’m not liking anything about Krista Allen’s look at all.

She tried a funky look but came off looking slightly ridiculous.

A dress similar in style to Haley’s would’ve made her look more sophisticated.

Haylie Duff doesn’t appear in this movie, but that didn’t prevent her from making the biggest effort at this premiere.

Her ivory one shoulder Nikolaki Spring 2009 gown is glorious.  I love the colour against her sun-kissed skin.

The gown is accented with a black waist band and from the close-up you can see the shoulder detail cascade down her back.

Loose tussled waves and nude lips complete this gorgeous look.

Of all the celebrities we’ve see wearing the Christian Louboutin Very Prive studded peep-toe pumps Nicky Hilton loves hers the most, as we’ve seen them on her many times.

She paired her heels with a simple strapless Elise Øverland tiered black dress, and diamond earrings.

Maria Sharapova by Cole Haan Collection Launch

With her wavy blonde hair and minimal make-up tennis star and red carpet regular Maria Sharapova, arrived at the launch of her Cole Haan accessories collection in New York yesterday before returning to the court for the upcoming US Open.

She looked beautiful wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2009 multi-coloured geometric print satin mini dress with accessories from her own collection.

They included black Cole Haan Air Milano ankle boots, paired with a Cole Haan Maria Frame convertible snake embossed clutch.

I love the distinctive print and the stand out pockets which give the dress an interesting shape.

This is her best look this week and even with those ankle boots, she will be up for Best Dressed this week.

The September Issue London Screening

Yesterday I was invited by InStyle UK to attend the advance screening of “The September Issue” sponsored by LoveFilm and Ovarian Cancer Action.

Unfortunately Anna Wintour didn’t arrive at the screening, but the glamorous girls from UK pop group Sugarbabes did.

The trio looked sexy in their co-ordinated LBD’s. They each had gold accents on either their shoes or handbags.

Amelle Berrabah wore a La Petite Salope black velvet one-shouldered belted dress, which she had shortened to show off her legs.  Her look was paired with Topshop open toe gold studded ankle boots and a Chanel purse.

Heidi Range introduced me to a designer I hadn’t heard of before Jasper Garvida. Her LBD was from his Fall 2009 collection.

The plunging dress was covered in platinum paillettes which were more beautiful in real life, the pictures aren’t doing the dress enough justice.

Her look was also paired with a Chanel bag and Moschino heels with a gold wedge.

Keisha Buchanan dress was instantly recognizable. “Alexander Wang” I said, to which she smiled and nodded.

Her Alexander Wang slim grommet dress will see her on a Who Wore It Better? poll because both Rihanna and Khloe Kardashian have worn this dress before her.

Her look was paired with black heels and a stunning black bag covered in gold links.

Onto the movie.

It was amazing. A real education into the workings of a magazine, Anna Wintour and her staff.

Anna is not as scary as I assumed she would be, but scary enough to keep her staff and designers on their toes.

I don’t want to talk in too much detail as I don’t want to give too much away, but I think a star is born in Wales-born Creative Director Grace Coddington. She had me in stitches through-out the documentary.

My favourite line was when Grace say to a colleague, “Will Anna like this one?”, referring to a black leather coat.   Her colleague says, “It’s black”.

“That’s true,” Grace says. “You’d get fired for that.”

I will remind you guys of that the next time you tell me off for moaning too much about black dresses. *winks*

“The September Issue” opens in theaters September 11.

Lily Allen For Elle UK October 2009

Lily Allen graces the cover of Elle UK’s October 2009 issue, which has been dubbed “The London Issue”.

With the “London” theme in mind Lily was dressed in amazing clothes all by British designers including Louise Goldin, Giles, Preen and Burberry. All of which had been specifically made for her.

In Rankin’s shoot she wears both a black and blonde wig. The hairstylist on the shoot said that they were going for a Debbie Harry kinda vibe, but I see Courtney Love.

On being famous: “I get quite shy and embarrassed, actually. Yes, I think I am [shy], actually. I get embarrassed when people come up and ask for autographs. I think people expect you to have a certain sense of decorum, but I almost find it like being a nursery teacher, having to be nice to people all the time. I haven’t got a problem with that, but I think people expect you to know how to deal with s**t.
