“Valentino: The Last Emperor” New York Premiere

Anne Hathaway’s white asymmetrical ruched Valentino dress is gorgeous from every angle. She looks outstanding.

After a so so awards season, this sees her return to her best.

Gwyneth Paltrow wore a black strapless Valentino dress, she has worn before back in 2003.

The dress is a fit for the occasion, but I am not wowed by it. Her hair and make-up is impeccable as always, and she completes her look with a stunning Chopard bracelet.

Claire Danes pistachio green Valentino Spring 2008 Couture cap sleeved dress makes her stand out, as this is the most sophisticated dress at the event.

It almost feels too sophisticated, but I would take more over less any day.

Selita Ebanks sure knows how to stand out in a crowd. The model arrived at this premiere, working the hell out of this Balmain Fall 2008 mini dress.

Talk about jaw dropping.

The very LBD has a lace overlay and stunning embellished details on the bust, shoulders and skirt. The sex appeal is amped up with zippers going across the body.

I am always grateful to Tinsley Mortimer for adding a burst of colour onto the red carpet.

If you are wondering were those colourful clutches she is always carrying are from, they’re self designed for her Samantha Thavasa range.

This particular apple green clutch, matches the green straps on her snake print Jimmy Choo Corsica strappy sandals.

Even a simple white shirt dress becomes a hot look for Padma Lakshmi.

I don’t think I have ever seen Agyness Deyn so muted.

The model wore a black velvet Marc Jacobs Fall 2008 hooded dress. I think this is one of two pieces that ever made the red carpet, from that very questionable collection.

I think Lake Bell’s expression says it all. Bad choice of dress.

Coco Rocha seems to be opting for a softer look these days, since she took on presenting duties for Style.com. Last night she wore a Jason Wu Fall 2009 ensemble.

The wine sweater, printed skirt combo, with a statement necklace is beyond fabulous.

Daphne Guinness looks a little startled.

Is it because someone informed the Guinness heiress that she is wearing the same Gareth Pugh Spring 2009 dress which Beyonce wore to the MTV Europe Music Awards?

Her look is complete with Christian Louboutin platformed Mary Janes, and a black Azzedine Alaia belt.

Georgina Chapman wore a black sequined and feathered Marchesa Fall 2008 dress, under a gold and black fur trimmed coat.

Who Wore House Of Holland Better? Agyness Deyn or M.I.A.


Believe it or not, but the House of Holland Spring 2009 sheer dress with black and white polka dots which Maya aka M.I.A wore when she performed at the Grammy’s, was a runway sample.

That means it was exactly the same dress Agyness Deyn had worn at the House of Holland after party during London Fashion Week last year.

Hard to believe a 9 month pregnant woman, can fit into a dress designed for a size 0 model.

I admire both women for having the balls to wear this daring dress, but Maya made a bigger impact, so she wins this for me.

Social Events Of The Week

Louis Vuitton Hosts A Tribute To Stephen Sprouse Cocktails, New York

I don’t know how, but I almost missed this one.

How Agyness Deyn makes it onto any Best Dressed List continues to baffle me.

The model arrived at this event wearing a LBD, a graffiti style day-glo oversized vintage Sprouse blazer and Doc Martins. She accessorised with an orange crucifix and limited edition Louis Vuitton bag.

I am not feeling the graffiti bags, and I am hating Deyn ensemble.

Brook Shields looks delightful wearing a blush pink strapless Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2008 dress.

The dress has a taffeta skirt with a gathered jersey bodice. I was not a fan of this collection, but Brook has made me fall in love with this dress.

Eva Amurri opted for a black fur gilt from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 collection, to go with her all black ensemble.

She completes her look with platform heels from the same collection.

Molly Sims works this red blazer as a dress from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2008 collection.

“My Bloody Valentine 3D” Screening, LA

Jamie King wore a Lanvin Fall 2008 black and brown banded cocktail dress, which had a mesh yoke.

She wore her amazing dress with black Christian Louboutin slingbacks.

Pre-Golden Globes Luncheon, LA

January Jones gives us the cold shoulder in this Stella McCartney Spring 2009 LBD.

I really like Jessica Alba’s ensemble, especially the lavender pants, but I am not crazy about the hair or lack of make-up here.

Opening Of The London Boat Show 2009, London

Kelly Brook channels her inner Olive Oyl, as she salutes the press at the London Boat Show launch today. The TV presenter wore a stripey Diane von Furstenberg Resort 2009 strapless dress especially for the occasion, with red strappy sandals.

The 8th Annual Awards Season Diamond Fashion Show, LA

Rumer Willis’ delicate nude dress is gorgeous, but as usual, the hair just does not work for me.

Olivia Wilde is so angelic wearing this two tone chiffon Jason Wu Spring 2009 dress. She really is becoming one of my faves on the red carpet.

Debra Messing’s steel grey draped Donna Karan dress, is better than the one she wore at the People’s Choice Awards.

A darker haired Andrea Bowen looks delightful in this colour-block dress.

Garcelle Beauvais is gorgeous in a green Karen Zambos Baretta silk dress.

Taraji P. Henson wore a cream and orange floral Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with complimenting accessories.

Who Wore Giles Better? Agyness Deyn or Katie Grand


Agyness Deyn attended the Giles Deacon Spring 2009 fashion show after-party during London Fashion Week at back in September wearing a sheer nude top, a black blazer with a yellow lining, Giles Spring 2009 silver zipped biker pants, and silver studded strappy sandals.

Katie Grand, the former editor of Pop Magazine attended the British Fashion Awards 2008 held at The Lawrence Hall in London wearing the same silver pants.

She wore her pants with a simple black sheer tee and a black boa also from the Spring 2009 show.

Agyness wins this for me.

Elle Style Awards 2008

Elle Style Icon winner Kate Hudson has been brightening up our red carpets since she arrived in London. She does not shy way in this white Derek Lam Fall 2007 keyhole gown.

She could have done without the jewels.

Best Actress winner Keira Knightley went back to Chanel last night, wearing a black dress from the Chanel Pre-Fall 2008 collection.

I love the brooch detail, but I hate the hair and I have been long over that pout.

Woman of The Year could have gone to no other woman but Kylie Minogue. She is such a survivor.

After a few mishaps in little known designers, she went back to the men who dress her best – Dolce & Gabbana.

This olive Grecian gown is from their Dolce & Gabbana Pre-Fall 2008 collection.

Lily Allen has worn Prada Resort 2008 two nights in a row now. I guess she loves their designs.

What I don’t love here is her hair. It is like something out of the 1950s.

UK TV presenter Alexa Chung looks so cute in this pink velvet Luella Spring 2007 strapless multi-tiered mini dress.

Naomi Campbell another Dolce & Gabbana faithful wore this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2008 strapless mini dress.

She presented Best British Designer to Jonathan Saunders, who showed his Fall 2008 in New York this month.

Roisin Murphy is head to toe in Givenchy Spring 2008. Her boots will no doubt have the Olsen sisters drooling.

Sophie Ellis Bextor wore this very interesting dress from Erdem Spring 2008 collection. On most people this dress would be very busy around the neckline, but as Sophia has a long neck it is not a problem for her.

Georgina Chapman always looks fantastic in her clothes. This jumpsuit is from her Marchesa Fall 2008 collection.

Katherine Jenkins is the first person I have seen in the this dove grey moon dress from RM by Roland Mouret Fall 2007 collection.

This dress hugs her curves beautifully.

Emilia Fox shimmers on a forties style full length sequined gown.

Jamelia is ALWAYS in Dolce & Gabbana. Unlike most stars who mix it up a little.

So bored of her.

Twiggy shocks me here in this gold sequined mini dress. But then I shouldn’t really be shocked as she is a style icon.

Naomi Harris opts for a satin orange mini dress with a black belt.

Kimberly Stewart has turned down the hooch, and is dressing more sophisticated these days and it really suits her.

Glad she stopped hanging out with Paris Hilton.

KT Tunstall looks like she missed the boat to audition for Bee Movie.

Agyness Deyn is wearing a lot of bright colours in this Henry Holland ensemble, the trouble is – as always – she is trying too hard.

Kelly Brook also opted for a full length Grecian gown in turquoise.



Bionic Woman
star Michelle Ryan wears a fuchsia pink silk gypsy style gown which for me is not working.
