“Spread” Screening

For most of you Leighton Meester was the belle of the Teen Choice Awards ball on Sunday, but her appearance on the red carpet on Saturday wasn’t as pretty.

For me Leighton got it very wrong when she sported this Christopher Kane Resort 2010 cut-out dress.

I like dress itself with it’s nuclear explosion print – it’s beautiful chaos – but it just doesn’t work for Leighton.  She doesn’t quite have the right look to pull this off.  Her rosy glow as wavy hair feel too cutesy for this dress.

Maybe a slick back pony and smoky eyes would’ve worked better.

Usually you can look to accessories to redeem a look, but her Giuseppe Zanotti heels and Sophia Coppola for Louis Vuitton slim suede clutch do little to save her.

I guess this was just a one off and she shouldn’t be condemned for it because at least she’s daring with her red carpet choices unlike some Amanda Bynes.

I’m surprised we never saw Sharon Stone wearing this Christian Dior Resort 2008 leopard print tiered chiffon dress, such is her love for animal print and Dior, but it’s was the gorgeous Demi Moore who wore it this weekend.

I like how the dress nipped her in at the waist and wasn’t left loose fitting like the runway dress, and that she didn’t over accessorize her look.

Her favourite Gold Bally platforms pumps and a matching clutch complete her look.

Anne Heche continues to hold her own against Demi.

The actress wore a white lace fitted dress with black sash tied to the waist to given her a sexy silhouette.

As usual her hair and make-up are perfection, whilst black Jimmy Choo Hamlet suede pumps and a black clutch complete her look.

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better? Anna Paquin or Cameron Diaz

Audrina Patridge’s Zuhair Murad dress wasn’t the only re-run of the Teen Choice Awards this weekend. Cameron Diaz’ Alexander McQueen dress was too.

Anna Paquin wore her black Alexander McQueen cheongsam with a mandarin collar, capped sleeves and zip with contrast piping detail, when she made an appearance on the “Late Show With David Letterman” last month.

She styled her hair into a classic updo, and wore Jimmy Choo slingbacks to complete her chic look.

Cameron looked svelte in her super-flattering grey version at the “Teen Choice Awards” which she paired with Pierre Hardy blue heels.

Many of you thought Diaz dressed too old for a teen event. I personally think she was setting a good example to the young actresses she walked the red carpet with – Abigail Breslin and Sofia Vassilieva.

In spite of that I much prefer the black version of this dress so Anna wins for me. I also prefer this dress zipped and not left open like Cameron’s dress.

This dress is available to purchase in black from Browns Fashion for £760/€884.34/$1,250.73. The grey version is available from Neiman Marcus for $1,845.

Runway To “The Beautiful Life” Photo Shoot – Mischa Barton In Versace

Despite her recent troubles, Mischa Barton was in good spirits whilst continuing to film “The Beautiful Life” in New York today and she also shot the promo for the TV show.

The actress was admitted to hospital last month on what was reported to be an “involuntary psychiatric hold”. Ironically she plays a model turned-drug addict in the teen drama.

On set she wore a gold and silver embellished Versace Spring 2009 mini dress with studded ankle boots, whilst interacting with her co-stars as the cameras rolled.

I’m glad to see she’s looking healthy. The lollipop look really didn’t suit her.

Victoria Beckham Takes One Dress To Denver…

…but in two different colours.

I recently joked that Victoria Beckham came to London to pick up her Fall 2009 collection after her ad shoot.

It now feels like I was right because she has worn nothing but her collection since.

Victoria was in Denver this weekend to be a judge on “American Idol”. Unfortunately the feedback from her performance was labeled as “icy and wooden”. Ouch!

Looks like VB’s attempts to be the people’s princess – like Cheryl Cole – is not about to happen any time soon.

On the plus side we got a smile and we got some colour from her this weekend.

The designer wore a luxurious silk purple strapless corset dress from her own collection with Emporio Armani platform heels.

On Sunday Victoria wore same dress is black with the same shoes when she headed back to LA with a severally pulled back high bun.

Her look was accessorized an Alaia cropped cardigan, Hermes Birkin and Culter & Gross sunglasses.

What she gives with one hand, she takes away with the other.

Victoria’s Giral strapless silk dress is available in purchase from the Net-A-Porter US site for $2,625, and the Net-A-Porter International site for £1,750/€2,188.

Jessica Simpson For Glamour US September 2009

Jessica Simpson graces the cover of Glamour US September 2009 wearing a Gucci Fall 2009 ombré spotted pattern silver and black embroidered spencer jacket which we first saw on Sienna Miller at the GI Joe Japan premiere.

This is her first cover since Tony Romo broke up with her on the eve of her 29th birthday. The interview took place before the breakup, were she discussed her relationship, her weight and her new VH1 reality series, ‘The Price of Beauty.’

On relationships: “I don’t regret anything I’ve gone through…. I don’t know what the future holds, but I hope that my life, as it is now, doesn’t change. I’m very happy and comfortable—it’s a great place to be in. If this article comes out and we’re not together, I’d still love [Tony], and he’d still be a huge part of who I am today.”
