Runway To "National Gay and Lesbian Force 2009 New York Leadership Awards" – Lucy Liu In Giambattista Valli


Lucy Liu wore a Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 sheath dress to the National Gay and Lesbian Force 2009 New York Leadership Awards this week. The dress hugely modified from the dress which was presented on the runway.

Modifications from the runway, are something a few of us frown upon, but I can hardly blame Lucy Liu for taking the modified/safe version of this silk crepe dress, with a tulle accents on the bust and skirt.

The version she picked was right for the occasion. It was dignified, and she looked stunning in her black version with smaller tulle accent on the bust.

This is one case in which the change was for the better, as I don’t know who could pull off the runway version.

America Ferrera’s Gotham Magazine Cover Launch Party

America Ferrera looked gorgeous at the Gotham Magazine Party held in her honour last tonight.

The chic cover star wore a light blue cap sleeve Malandrino Resort 2009 dress, with a dramatic deep v-neck.

I love everything about this look. The colour, the collar, the plunging neckline, the interesting square panel that draws in her waist, her hair, and her make-up.

This is the best I’ve seen America look, for a long time.

Her gorgeous cast-mates were there to support her.

Becki Newton wore the 3.1 Phillip Lim winding zipper ruffle dress, which both Kate Bosworth and Lucy Liu have worn already.

The unique semi-sheer black dress has winding, layered metal zips from the collar to the hemline, which the star wears with black pointy pumps.

Despite this being a re-run, Becki still injects a bit of freshness to the dress.

Vanessa Williams continues her love affair with Matthew Williamson’s electric prints.

For this event she wore a Matthew Williamson Ambroise georgette dress. The striking silk dress has a low v-neck, cap sleeves, and tie at the waist.

I couldn’t find a full-length picture of Vanessa, but I’ll hope that she didn’t wear black heels with this dress, vivid yellow would have been awesome.

Vanessa looks flawless, and you can too if you buy this dress from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $1,225, or the international site for £575/€690.

Runway To "Coco Avant Chanel" Paris Premiere – Audrey Tautou In Chanel


All eyes were on Audrey Tautou at the Paris premiere for Coco Avant Chanel, which took place last night.

Audrey stars as Gabrielle Chanel, known as Coco, before she became famous. The film, of course, features dresses from the Chanel collection. Karl Lagerfeld, Creative Director of the House of Chanel, supervised the re-creation of costumes and accessories, so we will have a magically journey through the archives.

At the premiere Audrey was, as you would expect, dressed in Chanel. Her strapless black and white floral print dress was from the Spring 2009 Couture collection.

The wonderfully chic actress wore her dress with a leather jacket, and Sergio Rossi back zip gladiator sandals. It’s hard to tell with her jacket, but her dress seems less voluminous in the hip area, than it appeared on the runway. Nevertheless, Audrey looks outstanding.


Coco Avant Chanel premieres in France on April 22, the rest of the world is yet to be announced.

Runway To "State Of Play" Press Conference – Rachel McAdams In Doo.Ri


We have to go back to October 2008, before we can say, we last saw Rachel McAdams on anything resembling a red carpet.

She resurfaced at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this week, to attend the press conference for her upcoming movie State of Play.

Her upcoming movie means we will finally get some long awaited red carpet action from her.

The talented actress looked very chic wearing a Doo.Ri Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with black YSL bow sandals.

The dress has a marble top half, and a navy skirt with a peplum at the waist. I’m torn between the look with or without the belt.

Which way are you swinging? For or against?

"Forces For Nature" Benefit


Stella McCartney attended the Forces For Nature Benefit in New York last night, wearing a blue satin mini dress, with a sheer panel yoke, from her Fall 2009 collection.

The dress looks far better on the model, but I love how she accessorized her look with those edgy patterned boots, which are also from her Fall 2009 collection.


Stella’s father Paul McCartney was there, with his partner Nancy Shevell. She supported her could-be-daughter-in-law, by wearing a piece from Stella’s Spring 2009 collection.

The sequin jumpsuit was covered up by a felt coat, for which I was thankful. This is not an easy look to pull off. Amber Valletta did, but being a former model, that’s to be expected.

Nancy completes her look with a pair of kitten heels. This was the nail in the coffin for this terrible look. She how she looked without the coat below.


Ziyi Zhang managed to redeem herself, following two disappointing looks last week.

She wore a black Stella McCartney bandage dress, with tights, black sandals and a black clutch.

The halter-neck dress, has cut-out shoulders, and off-the-shoulder cap sleeves.

I’m not sure about the shell necklace. It looks kinda awkward, as I think the dress speaks for itself, and doesn’t need anything extra.


Diane von Furstenberg went against that Stella McCartney dress code, and wore a LBD, with her own Fall 2009 geometric print black and white coat, with Christian Louboutin sandals.

I love her infectious smile.
