Runway To Gossip Girl – Blake Lively In Farah Angsana & Nanette Lepore

Thankfully I have Sky+ otherwise I would miss all my favourite programmes.

Last night I watched about 2 hours of Coronation Street back-to-back – finally Tony Gordon has been found out – and Gossip Girl which usually airs in the UK on a Wednesday night.

The episode was called “How To Succeed in Bassness” were Chuck threw a 1920’s-themed party for the opening of his club.

It was at the event we got to see Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen looking absolutely amazing wearing vintage silver embellished dress. She paired her dress with a Farah Angsana mint silk cape embellished with crystal embroidery from the designer’s Fall 2009 collection.

Her dress was paired with nude fishnet tights, and Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy peep-toes.

In another scene in the same episode we saw Serena at work with Blair listening to Serena’s telephone conversation with Chuck.

Serena was wearing a silky Nanette Lepore Darjeeling dress, with gold sequin embellishments, a sexy keyhole detail at bateau neckline, cute puffed three-quarter sleeves, and a flattering keyhole detail.

Dannii Minogue Wears Ralph and Russo & Donna Karan On Week 7 Of The X Factor

On Saturday nights X Factor show Dannii Minogue’s Ralph & Russo dress was a total disaster.

I only have 3 words for it TACKY, Tacky and tacky.

It looks like something a WAG like Alex Curran would wear.

Her dress was so dated and screams Euro trash, I was incredibly disappointed with her look.

Joan isn’t looking any better in this picture.

Dannii managed to redeem herself and do a complete 180 on Sunday’s show wearing an elegant Donna Karan Fall 2009 belted merlot jersey gown.

The turtle-neck gown hugged her curves and was more sophisticated than her previous look.

I think that Dannii should just stick to J’Aton Couture, as she was a knock-out when they were dressing her.

Everything else seems to pale in comparison.

Runway To X Factor Week 7 – Cheryl Cole In Giles & Jean Pierre Braganza

My first reaction when I saw Cheryl Cole on Saturday nights X Factor was “What the hell is she wearing?”

I’m her biggest fan, but this Giles Spring 2010 dress was ridiculous.

I tried to convince myself to like it during the show telling myself the look was cute and fun, but then she stood up to give Joe Mcelderry a standing ovation, and then I saw her thorn tattoo around her thigh and it just confirmed how wrong this look was for her.

It was Wham night, so I guessed the hairstyle was supposed to resemble a young Madonna in “Desperately Seeking Susan”, but ended up looking very childish.

Her Christian Louboutin Fifre ankle boots were the icing on a very tasteless cake.

Sunday night was much better as the X Factor judge wore a hot pink Jean Pierre Braganza Spring 2010 backless cold-shoulder dress from the designers ‘Psychadelactica’ collection.

I loved the bold colour, the tasteful plunging neckline, and the cute matching globe earrings.

The look was paired with Nicholas Kirkwood pearl embellished sandals.

Like I said it was better, but overall it she’s had much better weeks on the show.

Runway To “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” Promotional Tour – Kristen Stewart In Jason Wu & Herve Leger

So far the best looks Kristen Stewart has given us during the “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” promotional tour in my opinion were her Balenciaga and Proenza Schouler looks.

Why?

Because these look weren’t to girlie.

Last night Kristen and Taylor Lautner attend a screening of the movie in Tennessee wearing a Jason Wu Spring 2010 girlie dress.

Technically it shouldn’t have worked, but Kristen didn’t make this look seem like too much hard work.

I like that she belted the dress, and managed to keep her hair under control.

It’s wasn’t Cinderella fantasy tulle gown that didn’t suit her shape, nor personality and I don’t feel like she was wrestled into this dress.

This week Kristen was on the “Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” to promote the movie.

On the show she runs her fingers throw Conan’s hair after admitting she was “jealous” that Nikki Reed ran run her fingers through O’Brien’s hair during a 2008 Late Night appearance.

In the interview interview she talks about not liking fame, and expresses that she’s in the industry to make movies that her fans will love.

Will they love her wearing this black and white Herve Leger Resort 2010 dress?

Maybe they will, but they can’t seriously applaud that frightful hairstyle.

Runway To X Factor Week 6 – Dannii Minogue In Lisa Ho

On Saturday nights X Factor, Dannii Minogue surprised us all by not wearing J’Aton Couture.

Instead she wore a strapless gown slashed to her thighs by Australian designer Lisa Ho.

It’s a beautiful look, but Dannii has spoilt us with so much couture this series that this look didn’t have same wow factor as previous week.

I loved Danni’s hair, and the stunning silver statement necklace she paired with her sandy gown.

I loved Dannii’s Lisa Ho Spring 2009 printed kaftan, but it didn’t feel quite right for a Sunday night TV show.

It was perfect for St.Tropez or some other luxury holiday, but alongside Cheryl’s futuristic look Danni looked really out of place.

I also didn’t like her ponytail.

Firstly because it was crimped and secondly because I’ve grown so fond of her with shorter hair.

Burgundy YSL heels completed the look.

Runway To X Factor Week 6 – Cheryl Cole In Alexander Wang & Richard Nicoll

For once I loved both of Cheryl Cole’s looks on the X Factor this weekend.

On Saturday night I instantly recognised Cheryl’s plunging Alexander Wang draped sequin mini dress, as I was cruising this same dress on Friday in Selfridges.

This dress much preferred to her Jean Paul Gaultier look of last week, which felt too old for her.

She looked stunning, happy – despite her reported marriage troubles – sexy, confident and I loved how her hair was pulled back to complete this sleek look.

Silver peep-toes complemented that massive rock on her finger.

This was my favourite look so far.

Although the big hair was back on Sunday with this look, I didn’t mind it so much as I wasn’t as over the top as we know Cheryl’s hair can get.

Her Richard Nicoll corset dress with gold panels had a futuristic feel to it. If Star Wars was made today I feel Princess Leia would love this dress.

After a few weeks of Danni being on top, this was very much Cheryl’s week.
