9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree – Amber Heard In Dolce & Gabbana

My best dressed at the 9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree was Amber Heard.

My girl of the moment channeled her inner ‘Betty Draper’ in a non-cheesy way.

You have to possess a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to pull of this type of look without looking like an extra from “Mad Men”.

Amber carries this look with aplomb.

The “Zombieland” actress went for a colour-block Dolce & Gabbana dress with a peplum at the waist.

The look is elegant, classic and timeless.

I especially love the hair which helps bring this 60s vibe to life.

Black peep-toes, a black clutch and Miriam Haskell jewels complete this stunning look.

BDOTW contender for me.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Dita von Teese In Elie Saab Couture & Amber Heard In Marchesa

It not surprising that Dita von Teese won Best Dressed of The Week considering the looked angelic wearing an Elie Saab Couture gown.

The colour was outstanding against her porcelain skin. She would have been my winner if she’d picked another clutch.

I had a tough decision trying to pick from Kristen Bell in Georges Chakra Couture and Amber Heard in Marchesa.

In the end I picked Amber who swept me away with her romantic look.

Firstly because she was totally flawless from her loose updo to her elegant Marchesa dress to her Brian Atwood heels.

Secondly because she more than held her own against two Hollywood heavyweights – Angelina Jolie and Naomi Watts.

“Salt” LA Premiere – Amber Heard In Marchesa

One person who always brings her ‘A’ game to the red carpet is Amber Heard.

The “Zombieland” actress looked divine on the red carpet at the “Salt” LA premiere last night. In fact she was my best dressed at this event.

She didn’t go for an attention seeking look like Kristin Cavallari. Her look was romantic yet sexy and effortless.

Simple but effective.

Her nude strapless Marchesa lace cocktail dress with empire bow detail was paired with matching Brian Atwood peep-toes and a gold Jimmy Choo ‘Lisa’ clutch.

Amber continues to change her hair colour.

It ranges from platinum blonde to brunette. On this occasion it’s very much in-between.

Who Wore Christian Dior Better? Amber Heard or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Amber Heard looked breath-taking when she wore this Christian Dior Spring 2010 gown to the 3rd Annual Art Of Elysium “Heaven” Gala back in January.

I loved the mixture of sheer, patent leather and satin textures, combined with the gown’s overall retro-glam appeal.

She looked every inch like a modern Marilyn Monroe.

Rosie Huntington wore the same gown to the Elle UK Style Awards.

I didn’t like the way Rosie had tied the sheer part of her dress, neither did I appreciate her overtly sexy pouting, so Amber wins for me.

Who Wore Paule Ka Better? Amber Heard or Jennifer Carpenter

Amber Heard looked gorgeous wearing a white Paule Ka Fall 2009 mini dress to the LA premiere of “Zombieland” back in September last year.

She glows in white with her LA tan and sophisticated up-do.

I’m usually not a  fan of black shoes with a white dress, but I don’t actually mind her Dior Couture Spring 2008 wedges which she paired with a black clutch.

Jennifer Carpenter wore the same dress earlier this year to the SAG Awards in LA.

It’s a great look on her, but the black pumps are way too heavy for this look.

For wearing better shoes and showing some originality Amber wins this one for me.

The Art of Elysium’s 3rd Annual Gala “Heaven”

This is an incredibly long post, so please click ‘read more…’ below to see the rest of the looks from this amazingly well dressed event.

I was starting to lose hope that I would ever see this amazing Marchesa Fall 2009 dress on the red carpet.

Olivia Wilde has fulfilled my wish by looking drop-dead gorgeous wearing the strapless nude suede dress.

I love those embroidered floral details, the complementary taupe clutch and her nude Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps.

I don’t know much about Amber Heard, but I’m really impressed with her on the red carpet and shocked that she always manages to wear such big name designers.

Last night she looked sensational wearing this red Christian Dior Spring 2010 belted gown with a chiffon bodice and a satin skirt.

Since Charlize Theron has been M.I.A. on the red carpet in a while, I guess John Galliano might have been looking for an interim muse.

It’s not often we see 3 great Dior Spring 2010 looks in the space of 2 days.

Miss Dior herself – Marion Cotillard wore Dior to the Critic’s Choice Awards on Friday, then Chloe Sevigny wore Dior to the NY Times Style Magazine’s Pre-Golden Globe Awards Party on Saturday.

It’s always a pleasure to see Camilla Belle on the red carpet.

The actress wore a grey Valentino Spring 2010 dress with a satin bow detail on the hip.

I love the way the cape and skirt fan out.  It would’ve been amazing to watch this dress in motion.

I’m not sure about those stunning heels with the dress, but the heels are divine on their own.

On Friday I was worried that after Apphia Michael wore Viktor & Rolf to the Wallpaper Design Awards, that we would only get to see these pieces from this Spring 2010 collection inside magazines.

Anna Paquin delights us by wearing a strapless pink tulle dress with exaggerated hips.

She also blows my theory that only one of each look was ever made for this collection, as hers is pink to the runway’s grey and blue.

An Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch, Boucheron diamond studs, a Tom Binns necklace and black gladiator heels complete her look.Read More…
