Social Events Of The Week

33rd Annual Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF), Egypt

It’s been a while since we last saw Salma Hayek looking this fantastic.

The actress looked stunning at this event were she received an honorary award wearing a printed Balenciaga Fall 2009 gown.

I had hoped to see more from this collection on the red carpet, but Salma delights in her stunning gown version, which I prefer to the runway.

Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ Inaugural Governors Awards, LA

Ever since Cannes Film Festival Abbie Cornish just gets better and better for me on the red carpet.

I adore her in this Christian Dior lilac belted gown.

Her hair and make-up are gorgeous, her Neil Lane jewels are subtly beautiful and that clutch is divine.

Holt Renfrew Celebrates New Calgary Store, Canada

After two gowns Kristen Bell gives us a fresh sparkling Jenni Kayne Spring 2010 mini to get us in the to party mood for this weekend.

As always the blonde actress is flawless.

“The Blind Side” New Orleans Benefit Premiere

Sandra Bullock looked stunning wearing a purple striped Alberta Ferretti Spring 2010 gown.

I just wish she had smiled to help me love this look even more.

Fabolous’ Birthday Party, New York

Amber Rose usually over does it by wearing loud colours, or tacky tight ensembles but I’m totally in love with this Martin Grant Fall 2009 sculptured bustier.

Black velvet pants, YSL suede black heels and sunglasses complete her look.

2010 Pirelli Calendar Cocktail Reception, London

Daisy Lowe opted for a Jasmine di Milo Fall 2008 jumpsuit which is split to the thigh.

I love this look as it’s seductive without being too revealing.

The tights even work in her favour, as she looks like she’s wearing a full bodysuit.

NAC’s Medal of Honor for Film Award Presentation, New York

I’m not feeling this Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 look on Christina Ricci at all, and it has nothing to do with the tights.

The asymmetrical one-sleeved mini has a mish mash of colours I really don’t like, plus I don’t think the dress is particularly flattering on her.

Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Birthday Celebration, New York

I’ve loved this Alexander Wang corseted one-shoulder dress ever since I laid eyes on it.

Kim Kardashian does look good in this dress.

I love way the dress gracefully drapes her shoulder, but she’s a little bit too busty for the dress.

2009 MTVU Woodie Awards, New York

I’m also surprised we haven’t seem much of the Balenciaga Resort 2010 collection on the red carpet.

Jessica Stam opted to wear this orange belted mini with tight and a small patterned bag.

“The Princess And The Frog”, LA Premiere

It’s been forever since we last saw Anika Noni Rose on the red carpet, then she reappears at this premiere wearing the Thread Social asymmetrical dress I had added to my ‘favourites’ a few weeks ago.

I love the back of the dress with the unexpected double strappy detail.

Such a cute look to match that gorgeous smile.

“Me And Orson Welles” UK Premiere

Claire Danes’ Stella McCartney gown is very classic and simple with ruffle details.

Large silver earrings provides the sparkle.

Runway To “Bright Star” New York Premiere – Abbie Cornish In Elie Saab

Best Dressed Of The Week was going to be difficult already then Abbie Cornish throws her hat into the ring to make the decision even more difficult.

At the Vanity Fair & Apparition Present the Premiere of “Bright Star” this week she glowed wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2009.

I was always a fan of Elie’s extravagant blingy gowns, but this simple strapless crepe and silk satin teal gown is to die-for.

Abbie wears it well and her hairstyle gives her look an old Hollywood feel.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Bright Star” Premiere

I was quietly hoping Eva Longoria would wow me at Cannes Film Festival, and she has.

The Desperate Housewives star is at the film festival with the L’Oreal team, but she stands out amongst everyone else wearing an ice blue Atelier Versace Spring 2009 gown.

The gown has embroidered studded details, and a stunning shimmering train.

As Just Me said earlier, what a week for Haute Couture.

This is a big gown for petite actress, but she carries it off very well.

She wore her gown with stunning jewels, and dove grey YSL Trib Two’s.

You may remember in her Harper’s Bazaar Singapore interview that she said she owned them in every colour.

I kinda feel sorry for Abbie Cornish.

This was her movie premiere, her night to shine, but she got upstaged by Eva Longoria.

Her Fall 2009 gown, by Australian designer Toni Maticevski isn’t too bad, I love the colour, and it’s quite dramatic with the ruffles, tiers and pleats.

Good choice.

Actress Gabrielle Lazure arrived wearing a very sophisticated Moschino Fall 2009 dress.

This dress is a 2 in one piece.

Underneath it’s a simple simple crepe dress with a tie, but the magic happens with the organza overlay, as it has a red floral print.

Juliette Binoche graced the red carpet wearing a deep purple taffeta strapless Lanvin gown.

I love details on the bodice, and that she kept her décolletage bare, but I’m not so crazy about the floral hair accessory.

I just want to know why?

Why not invite Camilla Belle, Freida Pinto?

Why Phoebe Price?

She’s not a serious actress and she’s definitely not a L’Oreal girl, so I need to know why she is there.

The only thing I can relate to here, is her Mont Charles clutch.

Runway To "Irish In Film" Awards – Freida Pinto In Missoni


The hottest girl in Hollywood right now, Freida Pinto, again showed us her perfect style, when she attended the Irish In Film Awards pre-Oscars bash.

The beautiful actress wore a strapless yellow, orange and gold printed Missoni Spring 2009 mini dress, which had been shorten from the runway. This modification was right for Freida, unlike Estelle’s Brit Awards modification disaster.

She also replaced the embellished runway sash, with a shimmering sunshiny yellow one.

Her look was completed with a gold clutch, and a pair of blush Christian Louboutin Paquita satin gladiator sandals.


Others at this event included Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard and Abbie Cornish.

I love Kate Winslet, but the constant black is tiring, I am so Jennifer Aniston over it, and I’m worried that she will pick a black dress on Sunday night.

If she does – unless it is outstanding – she will end up on the worst dressed list.

Here she is wearing a Herve Leger LBD, with black pumps.

As elegant as Marion Cotillard looks in her strapless brown dress with white polka dots, her hair leaves a lot to be desired. It really is lacking in volume.

Abbie Cornish also opted for a LDB with a tiered skirt.

All I can say is thank the fashion gods for Freida being at this event, otherwise it would have been a complete wash out.

In Abbie Cornish’s Closet – Calvin Klein


Last month Abbie Cornish and boyfriend Ryan Phillippe arrived at the Calvin Klein Spring 2009 collection launch on Cockatoo Island, Sydney wearing a blush pink Calvin Klein Medina dress.

Abbie looks effortlessly elegant in this dress, which has a pleated overlay detail on the hips, and gives her a sexy silhouette.

The dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $2,495, and the international site £1,434/€1,830.
