Amber Rose In Versace – 2013 BET Awards

Amber Rose In Versace - 2013 BET Awards

I was pleasantly surprised by Amber Rose’s look on the red carpet at the 2013 BET Awards on Sunday evening.

That’s because the new mum’s Versace Resort 2013 yellow-and-black dress with graphic cut-out detailing didn’t focus on her prize assets: her boobs and butt.

For once, I can admire her sleeveless dress and how pretty she is without being turned off by too much exposure.

I love the neon-pink colour and simple black sandals. It’s been a while since I liked anything she’s worn so this gets a thumbs up from me.

2010 ESPY Awards – Amber Rose In Natalia Romano

Overdressed Award
The 2010 ESPY Awards which was held in LA last night was really disappointing.

Last years event was far more entertaining.

Anyway I’ll start of with Amber Rose who wore a beautiful tiered lemon Natalia Romano dress.

She looked really elegant – which just goes to show that it’s Kanye who brings her down.

My problem with this look is that she’s totally overdress for this occasion. It’s the ESPY Awards not the Oscars.

Also the layers make her appear wider than she actually is.

Nice attempt though.

Front Row @ Christian Siriano Fall 2010

Christian Siriano is always guaranteed to attract celebs to his presentations.

Amber Rose arrived wearing dress with that beautiful marine print from his Spring 2010 collection.

The dress has such bold shoulders that Amber shouldn’t have adopted this pose as it ruins the shape of the dress.

Her look was paired with same runway print heels.

Mena Suvari is a huge supporter of Christian Siriano, which is why I’m not surprised she wore a custom blue strapless dress from the designers Fall 2010 collection.

Amber Rose Front Row @ Chanel’s Spring 2010 Couture Show

I am forever indebted to FC for allowing me to post this on here and I take full responsibility for any fashion bashing this site receives as a result!

Now that the disclaimer is over and done with, let’s talk about the ever ridiculous Amber Rose and Kanye West who were front row at Chanel’s Spring 2010 Couture show.

How they ever got an invite in the first place is beyond me but publicity hungry as ever, Amber turned up in a gold knitted hooded dress.

There is no point in me even attempting to critique this look as I wouldn’t even know where to begin. But please feel free to let me know your feelings on her *ahem* dress.

I know I should despise these two and their media grabbing antics but the comedy couple just never fail to amuse me.

I feel a new screensaver coming on…

UPDATE: Thanks to one of our readers, From Russia With Love, who identified Amber’s dress for us. She is wearing a look from the Fall 2009 Chanel Paris-Moscow show.

Who Wore Jil Sander Better? Katherine Jenkins or Amber Rose

Katherine Jenkins and Amber Rose don’t seem like they would share a similar taste in fashion, but both have stepped out in this Jil Sander sculpted wool crepe dress.

Katherine wore this dress in October to the “Pride of Britain Awards” in London.

I like the dress, but it doesn’t seem to translate that well off the runway to red carpet. The structured piece gets kinda lost.

I think Katherine looks OK, but I’m not exactly blown away as she somehow manages to make this dress look dowdy.

I like the chunky clutch and the shoes though.

Amber wore this dress to the New York screening of “Twilight Saga: New Moon” back in November.

She wore the bright orange version and had it shortened. Figures!

I really love what she’s done with the length and that orange suits her skin so well.

Amber wins for me as I prefer the dress in orange.

You can buy this dress online at Net-A-Porter.com & Browns Fashion.

“Me And Orson Welles” New York Screening

Do not adjust your screens, this really is a Herve Leger dress.

I know many of you have sworn off Herve Leger due to every D to Z list celebrity wearing them on the red carpet, but Claire Danes proves that there’s more to the brand than neon bandage dresses.

The actress walked the red carpet with Disney pip squeak Zac Efron at the New York screening of “Me And Orson Welles” last night.

She looked amazing in her glittering silver mini dress, which she paired with pink Sergio Rossi heels.

Those of you who tag her as boring, will be eating your words.

This is definitely a BDOTW contender for me.

Lydia Hearst opted for a D&G Fall 2009 strapless ivory dress.

Even with the exaggerated hips, this dress fails to flatter Lydia.

I wish she had picked one of the rich plum or blue pieces from this collection, as this colour washes her out.

Jimmy Choo Nova gold snake-effect leather peep-toe pumps complete her look.

Once you get past the Kanye West association and the occasional OTT outfit, you can see that Amber Rose is actually a very pretty woman.

The model arrived on the wearing an ivory Dolce & Gabbana strapless bustier dress, which is a regular on the red carpet.

She also paired her look with gold Jimmy Choo heels.

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.

“The Twilight Saga: New Moon” New York Screening

I was slightly disappointed by Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2010 collection when I compared it to his amazing Fall 2009 and Spring 2009 collections.

Jessica Stam proves that I was wrong to judge so harshly, as she totally rocks this Pugh creation.

I didn’t know Stam could do edgy. I always have her down as a cutesy girl.

She wore her dress with the same runway open-toe lace up booties.

Excluding the tattoos, I really like Amber Rose wearing this orange Jil Sander sculpted dress which she has of course shortened.

The colour is fab against her caramel skin.

It looks like the sculpted part of this dress doesn’t quite translate off the runway.

When Katherine Jenkins wore this dress the sculpted panel also looked very limp.

I must say I love Alexa Chung’s navy blue taffeta Katy Rodriguez Fall 2009 dress.

She does love a poufy skirt.

I’m also really attracted to her animal print bag.

As usual despite her fame Kristen Stewart doesn’t have much to smile about.

I like the fact that she attempted to tame the hair.  It’s much better than some of the horrors she’s been sporting lately.

I love the olive colour of her Valentino dress, and the soft pleats but I just can’t get excited about her in this dress.

For the third time this promotion tour Kristen wears Sergio Rossi heels.

Ashley Greene wore a D&G Pre-Fall 2009 black and cream butterfly appliqué dress with a black sash tied to the waist.

Stunning as always.

Nikki Reed has very much been in the background on this promotional tour, the others seem to be taking the limelight.

The stunning actress stood out wearing a gold satin cocktail D&G dress with a gorgeous crystal neckline paired with Jimmy Choo strappy heels.

Agyness Deyn wore a very bewitching lace look.

The dress is interesting, but I don’t like Deyn with black hair. She felt more vibrant as a blonde.

Looks like Halloween came around twice this week.

First Leighton Meester, and now with Taylor Momsen.

What is it with these Gossip Girls?

After Taylor lighten up with the make-up and calmed down with the wannabee rock chick ensembles, the raccoon eyes are back.

I love her Dolce & Gabbana dress, on someone like Dita von Teese it would be amazing.

At 16 showing that much boobage feels a bit wrong.
