Chanel’s Benefit Dinner For The Natural Resources Benefit

The celebration for our Oceans to benefit the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Ocean Initiative was sponsored by Chanel in Malibu, LA last night.

Kate Hudson: The mother-to-be arrived wearing a black Chanel draped asymmetrical dress with Brian Atwood ‘Debra Due’ peep-toes and a snake-skin clutch. As always she was glowing and continues outdo many other mothers-to-be on the red carpet.

Courtney Cox: I’m very surprised that Courtney didn’t wear black. The actress wore a navy and beige tweed Chanel Spring 2011 dress with black t-bar heels. Her dress is very similar to a dress Naomi Watts wore earlier this year.

Camila Alves: The TV host also opted for black shoes with her white Chanel mini dress. The dress was paired with a Chanel cropped jacket from the Resort 2011 collection.

Amber Valletta: The model would’ve been one of my favourites at this event had she opted for heels which were more complementary to her pink and navy tweed Chanel Spring 2011 dress. A black clutch completed her look.

Ali Larter: I’m guessing the actress got lost on her way to Malibu beach.  A cover up to a Chanel benefit?  REALLY?

Bryce Dallas Howard: The actress needs help. Her style choices since we discovered she was pregnant have been less than flattering. Rachel Zoe, Victoria Beckham, Selma Blair, Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson above have all managed to work sophisticated maternity styles, so why is Bryce struggling so badly?

For a Chanel event I find myself being incredibly disappointed by all excluding Kate Hudson.

Runway To “The Spy Next Door” LA Premiere – Amber Valletta In RM by Roland Mouret

Back in December Roland Mouret had a launch party for his 6 piece Rainbow Project collection.

Amber Valletta was at the party along with Heidi Klum and many others, and it looks like Amber was taking notes, because she picked the orange RM by Roland Mouret Ostadar dress for “The Spy Next Door” LA premiere.

Look at those amazing legs. God I’m so jealous.

Her amazing dress was paired with a Herve Leger by Max Azria gem clutch, taupe Aldo ‘Fawson’ pumps and diamond wing earrings.

My favourite dress from this collection was the turquoise asymmetrical dress, but Amber has made me fall in love with this dress.

BDOTW contender.

RM by Roland Mouret Rainbow Collection Launch

Last week the RM by Roland Mouret Rainbow Collection was launched on Net-A-Porter.com.

In order to celebrate this colourful collection Roland invited some of Hollywood most beautiful women to wear the looks at his launch party in LA last night.

Heidi Klum picked a stunning lavender RM By Roland Mouret violet silk mini dress which showed off her post-baby figure perfectly.

It’s such a shame about the white Trib Two’s.

Devon Aoki was equally colourful wearing a bright yellow RM By Roland Mouret silk mini dress, which she later paired with a leather jacket and studded clutch.

I love how this gives her a teeny tiny waist.

Olivia Wilde was more muted wearing a RM By Roland Mouret blue stretch silk dress.

Her look was also paired with a leather jacket and a Christian Louboutin Viola nappa clutch, which has a cute sculpted leather floral detail.

Over her black draped maxi dress, Rachel Zoe opted for a RM By Roland Mouret Zephyr silk brocade jacket which just shot to #1 on my wish list.

Demi Moore didn’t get the rainbow memo so she opted for one of Roland’s classic LBDs.

You can barely make out the folds on her beautiful one-shoulder dress.

I’m more in love with Amber Valletta’s RM by Roland Mouret Autan textured wool coat and Chanel clutch, than her Spring 2010 black and grey RM dress.

I wish she had worn one of the more colourful pieces.

NARS 15X15 Project To Celebrate 15 Years Of NARS

We were so blindly obsessed with predicting Lady GaGa and others would be the first to wear the Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 armadillo heels, that we didn’t consider the MOST like person to take them from the runway to reality – Daphne Guinness.

How could we have not even considered her?

The heiress donned the impossible-to-walk-in heels when she hosted this event with Marc Jacobs last night.

Her crazy heels were paired with an aqua marine bubble skirt dress from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 collection.

I love that gold bejeweled neckline, but hate that silver metal belt she paired with it.   These kind of belts are very much her signature, and they are usually Alaia.

Apart from the belt, my only disappointment is that she didn’t go for one of the embellished armadillo heels.

This may seem strange but every time I look at Daphne, I think this is what Victoria Beckham will look like in about 20 years time.

Many of you have expressed how much you are O.V.E.R Balmain, or that you didn’t get the craze to begin with.

Doesn’t Selita Ebanks make you want to forgive and forget?

As always the Victoria’s Secret model does just to Balmain.

She looks outstanding in this dress, her skin is glowing and the colour is divine on her.

As much as I love this dress, I think her J.Mendel white gown from earlier in the week was a far superior look to be included in the BDOTW poll.

Cassie looks peeved.  Maybe she’s still waiting for her ridiculous hairstyle to grow out.

The singer wore a  long sleeved LBD with cut-outs on the side, paired with a black pair of Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte Fall 2009 thigh-high boots.

Amber Valletta was the most glamorous at this event, giving off an elegant vibe wearing a dark jade RM by Roland Mouret Lombarde gown paired with Nicholas Kirkwood python cut-out platform heels.

Social Events Of The Week

2009 Child Protection Agency’s Gala, New York

Susan Lucci is one of those freaks of nature like Iman and Demi Moore who become more beautiful as they get older.

The Queen of Daytime looked exquisite walking the red carpet at this event wearing a scarlet satin Marchesa Fall 2009 strapless dress with satin bow on the hip.

You may remember that Georgina Chapman wore this same dress a few weeks ago.

The actress paired her dress with a red clutch and silver shoes.

I would have loved her to have gone matchy matchy on this look, as I’m not so crazy about her choice of silver heels.

Fulfillment Fund’s Annual STARS 2009 Benefit Gala, LA

Leslie Mann looked sensational wearing a yellow Jason Wu Resort 2010 peplum butterfly-knot shift dress paired with Sergio Rossi heels.

The beaded detail is beautiful.

Leslie always has fun with fashion.

Hollywood Media Honors, New York

Marisa Tomei is always so elegant on the red carpet.

For this event she wore a black fringed Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 dress.

She kept her look regal with a pair of elegant black peep-toes and a silver VBH clutch.

AFI Awards 2009 Nominations, Sydney

Jessica Marais walked the red carpet wearing a Burberry Prorsum tulip dress.

I love the pretzel braided detail on the bodice, and I would have also loved it if Jessica’s dress was short like the runway.

20th Annual Friendly House Luncheon, LA

Amber Valletta wore a blue, black and white silk Etro wrap gown, whilst carrying a gold metallic fringed Etro clutch.

Love the dress, jealous of the lack of make-up.
