Models @ The 2009 Costume Institute Gala

After Gwyneth Paltrow wore the gold version of this Versace Spring 2009 dress, plus it’s appeared on many magazine covers, Gisele Bündchen gave us something a little different with a navy blue spaghetti strapped version of this mini dress.

Not a jaw-dropping moment like last year, but you can always rely on her to look fabulous.

Daria Werbowy walked the runway the Balmain Fall 2009 show so she would have pre-selection what she wanted to wear to the event weeks ago. She opted for this black sequined plunging dress from the same collection, with black booties.

Anja Rubik also walked for Balmain, and it looks like she had her eye on this strapless silver piece, with a black asymmetrical hem from the Fall 2009 collection.

Still sporting her Auburn locks, Coco Rocha wore a gold asymmetrical Isaac Mizrahi Fall 2009 gown.

Donatella Versace had a busy night dressing yet another star in her Atelier Versace Spring 2009 collection. Claudia Schiffer opted for a black strapless gown, with many sheer panels.

We have been crying out for a new hairstyle for weeks, and Claudia gave us bangs to keep us quite.

Miranda Kerr wore a very revealing fringed Jil Sander Spring 2009 dress.

Iman supreme elegance as always in Donna Karan.

Karen Elson’s Gothic look is perfect for this Chanel Fall 2009 off the shoulder gown, with a white pleated collar.

The look of the Rodarte Fall 2009 collection included thigh high boots, but Jessica Stam opted for slingbacks with her Rodarte one-shouldered mini dress.

Despite the vivid yellow, I’m missing the wow factor I usually get from Amber Valletta at these types of events.

Helena Christensen’s pink Zac Posen custom Vogue gown is cute, but I would’ve preferred to see it on someone like Chanel Iman.

Hilary Rhoda wore a Thakoon Fall 2009 mini asymmetrical mini dress, with a pouffy piece on her shoulder. I much preferred this dress in black, as it was presented on the runway, but Hilary does look great in it.

As I said above I would have preferred that Helena and Chanel Iman has swapped dresses. Last night Chanel wore a pink Zac Posen Spring 2009 animal print gown.

Shalom Harlow is quite a mysterious character, and she isn’t giving much away in this vintage Bob Mackie black puffy coat dress.

Sessilee Lopez sparkled in a Zac Posen gown, as did Arlenis Sosa in Alberta Ferretti.

Isabeli Fontana pulled on a chartreuse mini for Calvin Klein, with matching pumps.

Alex Wek stood out in purple Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2009 mini dress, but she is so natural beautiful make-up weakens her look.

Narciso Rodriguez dressed Lily Donaldson in a black rise & fall gown.

Rachel Roy- in her own design – dressed both Lakshmi Menon and Joy Bryant. As much as I love them both Joy totally rocks my world in this dress.

Eva Herzigova wore a strapless nude Dolce & Gabbana dress, with Giuseppe Zanotti Special Edition crystal strap sandals.

Lara Stone rocks in her silver Alexander Wang dress.

Chloé LA Boutique Opening Celebration

Kate Bosworth looked so gorgeous and fresh faced at this event.

As co-host she wore grey silk embellished tank, with a lemon floor length chiffon skirt from the Chloé Fall 2009 collection, all whilst showing off an embellished cream Chloé bag.

It’s just so easy for Kate.

Zoe Saldana is doing her best to state her claim as the ‘Girl of the Moment’.

She gives us hit after red carpet hit, and this Chloé Spring 2009 dress comes second in my admiration after her red Prabal Gurung dress last week.

This ethereal white shift, with a keyhole detail, just oozes sweet sophistication.

Definitely one to continue to watch.

Leighton Meester is the a typical Chloé girl, cute, sassy, young and beautiful.

I love her look, but her satin apricot Spring 2009 dress looks like it needs adjusting a little. It kinda looks a bit twisted on her.

I simply adore her bracelet, her hair and flawless make up.

Christian Louboutin Dillian Flower pumps from the 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2009 collection complete the look.

Chloe Sevigny, who co-hosted this event with Kate, wore a navy blue pant suit from the Spring 2009 collection, under a white blazer with scalloped edged lapels from the same collection.

Like her co-host this is easy for Chloe, and I appreciated her efforts in not wearing Look 29 as presented, and mixing things up a little.

Looking as stylish as ever, Camilla Belle opted out of wearing white, like so many others, but that only made her stand out even more.

Her leather-look Chloé Pre-Fall 2009 LBD, had cute bow ties going down the back. It maybe black, but it ain’t safe. Just look at how short it is.

Two-tone Chloé Spring 2009 heels, and a black clutch complete the look.

Wow so many of my girl crushes graced this event. Fabulous overload.

The absolute beauty of Lake Bell’s look, is how simple, clean and fresh it all looks.

She never tries too hard, but always looks outstanding.

January Jones wore a Chloé draped Grecian gown, belted with a blush pink sash.

Her make-up was a flawless as her dress.

Maria Sharapova serves up an other ace, proving her off-court style is worthy of our admiration.

The plunge neck nude Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with the navy sash is fabulous, but her hair and heels lose her a few points.

Molly Sims opted for a champagne and black printed dress from the Chloe Pre-Fall 2009 collection, with clear embellishments.

I love this sassy dress, which she wore with Chloé Spring 2009 bow heels.

Amber Valletta’s Chloé Spring 2009 asymmetric dress, with a ruffled neckline is very chic, but her hairstyle really lets her down.

I love these peachy/nude colours on Camilla Alves.

Her look was from the Chloé Resort 2009 collection, which included a boyfriend blazer, tank top, embellished mini skirt, nude heels and a clutch I would die for.

Gaile Lai’s khaki Chloé Spring 2009 jumpsuit is so incredibly chic, but I really don’t like her choice of heels.

Ever Carradine picked the only dress from the Chloé Resort 2009 collection, which I never expected to see on the red carpet. I really don’t think this dress will flatter anyone.

Estelle’s black playsuit is well accessorized, but I still feel like she is very muted lately. She’s not the Estelle we are used to seeing.

Emma Stone’s cobalt blue long sleeved shift dress, was worn with Jimmy Choo Samoa Kid sandals.

Dear Agyness Deyn, we all know break-ups are tough, but remember you’re flying the flag for British fashion. Please dress more appropriately in future.

Debbie Matenopoulos presents The Daily 10, and during awards season she also presents Fashion Police.

Debbie, I think it’s time for you to turn yourself in.

She is wearing a Alice + Olivia Penelope party dress.

This is your second to last chance to give your shout outs for Best Dressed this week.

2009 Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards

Here is the Best and the Worst from the orange carpet, at the 2009 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.

Despite Ashley Tisdale giving us a re-run in this navy strapless Akiko Ogawa Fall 2008 embellished dress – previously worn by Hayden Panettiere – I still think she was the Best Dressed at this event.

I love everything about this look. She really made an effort, and I love how she keeps her look young, by wearing booties and not the expect Louboutin’s peep-toes.

Victoria Justice is a cute as ever, wearing a Alice + Olivia Cotton sateen rolled sleeve blazer, over her purple satin dress. She gives her look a slight edge by wearing a Streets Ahead studded belt.

Victoria completes her look with a pair of Modern Vintage Evanise ankle booties, and a large silver clutch.

Demi Lovato wore a gold bustier Ina Soltani dress, with black YSL Tribute sandals.

I love how this dress shimmers.

Miranda Cosgrove understands how to dress for this occasion, wearing a cute black 3/4 length sleeved Sonia Rykiel dress, with white hearts embellished with diamante’s.

I love the cute hair accessory.

She always has fun on the red carpet, dresses her age, and doesn’t take herself too seriously. Love her spirit.

Miley Cyrus’ Sheri Bodell gown is gorgeous, with its tiers and delicate ruffles, but it feels slightly grown up for an occasion which slimes its guests.

This is the Kids Choice Awards, Miley should have had fun wearing something young and hip.

Actress Keke Palmer matches her eyeshadow and nail polish to her eggplant Elise Øverland leather mini dress.

Love the earrings.

Brenda Song is so cute, I just want to keep her in my pocket.

The tiny cutie wore a gorgeous yellow satin dress, with intricate embroidered and studded embellishments fanning over the top half of her dress.

I love the silver belt, which compliments her dress perfectly.

Nice booties, shame about Emma Roberts’ lace blood red strapless dress. Eek.

Cameron Diaz is a regular at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.

She kept her look casual, yet still chic, wearing a navy and red polka dotted Micheal Kors sleeveless top, with distressed ripped 7 For All Mankind jeans.

They say supermodels can wear anything and still look good, but for Amber Valetta this gorgeous Preen Fall 2009 geometric print tunic comes off looking very maternity.

America Ferrera looked quite chic, wearing a ruched red J.Mendel dress, with batwing sleeves.

This dress was incredibly flattering on her.

Not quite sure what happened to Megan Fox here. I appreciate she dialed down the sexy for a kids awards show, but that shouldn’t be an excuse to dress like this.

Tori Spelling looks looks surprisingly good in her maxi floral dress. This is indeed a rarity.

Costume Institute Gala – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Camilla Belle NEVER lets me down. She is always stunning, always well put together and always smiling so beautifully.

Last night she wore a gorgeous Armani Privé Spring 2008 gown.

The aquamarine silk organza tiered gown had an origami Swarovski crystal encrusted ribboned one shoulder strap, with the same detail on the hip.

Pretty In Pink Award
No glitter, no over the top bling (apart from her wedding ring), no big hair, just Beyonce letting this Giorgio Armani Privé pale pink strapless silk organza gown speak for itself.

Her hair was pulled back to reveal those amazing earrings.

That shade of pink lipstick beautifully to compliments her gown.

Not a hint of Tina Knowles. Adore her.

Best White Award
Naomi Watts wore a Theirry Mulger pleated white halter gown with jeweled detail and matching pleated throw, which evokes images of old Hollywood glamour, especially with her beautifully styled hair.

If not for Camilla, she would have won Best Dressed.

Best Ruffles Award
Kate Mara’s canary yellow Zac Posen Spring 2008 one shouldered belted gown is stunning. I am glad she wore her hair back to allow the dress to shine.

Best Black Award
Ziyi Zhang always looks stunning in Giorgio Armani Couture. She last wore an Armani Privé gown to one of the Oscar parties this year, and last night she dazzled in another Giorgio Armani Spring 2008 Couture gown.

This black one shoulder silk organza gown has a fitted bustier, with black patent and Swarovski crystal details with origami-like ribbon flowers that cascade down the skirt.

Golden Girl Award
Taylor Swift definitely the golden girl wearing a Badgley Mischka Fall 2008 gold and bronze ombré sequin and crystal fishtail gown. The colour works well with her milky skin.

She accessorize her look with Badgley Mischka Couture shoes, Badgley Mischka jewelry and a gold Badgley Mischka clutch.

Drop dead gorgeous.

Best British/Blatant Copy Award
Although Cat Deeley’s feathery Burberry dress is almost an exact copy of Mary-Kate Olsen’s dress from last year, she does look amazing in it.

Best Versace Award
Many others wore Versace last night, but Amber Valletta’s stood out for me.

I adored this Versace Couture Spring 2008 metallic blush gown with and voluminous shoulder detail when it was first presented back in January. I imagine it on an exotic beauty like Penelope Cruz, but Amber more than does this dress justice.

Thank God It’s Not Black Again Award
Bravo for Mr Armani for getting the stunning Julia Roberts in something other than black.

She is amazing in this platinum Giorgio Armani Privé gown.

The scooped neckline is delightful, and is accented by an antique brooch.

The beading on a mesh overlay really brings this gown alive.

Most Daring Award
Lake Bell is usually a cute dresses type of girl, but went vampy in this Balmain Fall 2008 crystal-embroidered lightning bolts leather dress and Burberry heels.

Best Cape Award
Bravo to Thandie Newton for being one of the only celebrities to wear a cape to this Superhero’s event. Her strapless lace dress and cape is from the Chanel Fall 2008 collection.

Best Snap-Back Award
Did Jennifer Lopez really have twins?

You would not think so seeing her here in this asymmetric tiered gown, with jeweled detail. Back to her beautiful best.

Most Improved Award
I hated Sarah Larson’s Oscar dress, so I was happy to see her improve dramatically, in this black vintage Giorgio Armani black one-shouldered beaded silk jersey gown, from the Spring 1997 collection.

Best Va Va Voom Award
Gisele Bündchen not only brought along Tom Brady, who looks very dapper in his Versace suit, but she also brought her A game. I swear my chin almost hit my table when I saw her in this pink Versace Fall 2008 halter-neck gown.

S T U N N I N G.

Best Superhero Theme Award
In this silver embroidered dress Chanel Haute Couture dress, Anna Wintour is very much living up to the “Superhearo” part of the “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy” theme.

She looks like she could save the world in this dress.

Who needs a clutch when you have those pockets?

Best Fantasy Theme Award
Scarlett Johansson wore Dolce & Gabbana, but it was her huge ring that most people were looking out for, following her announced that she and actor Ryan Reynolds were engaged.

She was one of the few that got into the spirit of the event, wearing this cute nude fairy ensemble.

Best De Ju Vu Award
When I saw Eva Longoria in this Marchesa Fall 2008 strapless ruffled gown, I instantly thought of Lucy Liu’s Zac Posen dress to the same event last year, and Jessica Alba’s Oscar dress. But Eva stands alone looking drop-dead gorgeous in her own gown.

For once the dress is not skin-tight nor does it have an open back.

Most Daring Award
Ashley Olsen’s black keyhole dress was custom-made by Diane von Furstenberg and she looks amazing and very sexy in it.

Maybe Ashley felt a little self conscious in her dress, because I could not find one photo of her not at her sister side.

She is still loving the nude make-up I see.

Best Yellow Award
Molly Sims always turns it up a notch on the big stage. Last night she wore a stunning haltered yellow Versace Spring 2008 jersey gown, with gorgeous Chopard jewels.

Best Strapless Award
This Michael Kors dress that Mary J Blige is wearing is simple, yet not boring, sophisticated and well suited to her shape.

Her earrings are slightly over the top, but I can forgive that for her looking so amazing in this dress.

Best Mini Award
For this prestigious event you would not expect many to wear a mini cocktail dress, but Diane Kruger did, and with amazing results wearing Alberta Ferretti.

The dress was gathered throughout and had a jeweled detail on the shoulder. The fuschia peep-toes were a nice touch.

Her beau Josh Jackson is happy to let his girl shine, as he stands back in a white/black tuxedo from Alberta Ferretti.

Best Monochrome Award
I love it when Dita von Teese wears something other than just black.

This Marchesa Fall 2008 strapless black and white embroidered gown with feather detail on the hem, is just the kind of dramatic dress I would expect Dita to wear.

Dita does not do safe.

Best Designer Award
If ever there was an award for Best At Wearing Your Own Clothes, it would have to be given to Donatella Versace.

Donatella looks beautiful in her own designed strapless fleshy peach coloured dress, with an embroidered detail which nips in her tiny waist. To add further glamour, the dress is completed with train.

Just OK Award
I don’t love Emmy Rossum in this Phi dress, but I don’t hate it either. It is just OK.

Emmy should really start saving the magnificent dresses she wears to smaller events, to big events like this.

She accessorized her dress with Chopard jewels and a Mary Norton clutch.

Best Colour Award
Eva Mendes aqua dress is stunning against her caramel skin.

This Calvin Klein dress itself is very interesting in design with its varying shapes.

Eva’s stunning jewels are by Bulgari.

Best Embellishments Award
This would not be a prestigious event without some Elie Saab bling.

Hilary Duff, who a guest of Allure magazine, was lucky enough to wear this stunning Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture gown. I would have preferred one of the bigger stars to have wore this gown, but young Hilary does it justice.

Most Consistent Award
Do I really to say how much I LOVE this red satin Dolce & Gabbana gown on Iman?

Oh my lord she is killing me with her perfection.

The bodice is a very familiar style for Dolce & Gabbana, but they have added a full skirt and a jeweled detail on the hip to give Iman that oomph, that helps her radiate her beauty.

Best Campaign Girl Award
Jennifer Connelly, the face of Balenciaga does not let Nicolas Ghesquière down in this Balenciaga Fall 2008 black and white dress.

Even her sky high heels are from the Fall 2008 collection.

Her necklace is amazing.

Most Colourful Award
Kate Bosworth like Diane Kruger, also did not opt for the long flowing ball gown. Instead she wore this psychedelic vintage Chanel couture dress with a jagged hem.

Her colourful Pierre Hardy shoes gave the allusion from the front that she was not wearing shoes, but they had a transparent strap.

Having The Most Fun/Best Accentuated Waist Award
Kate Moss with and wearing Stella McCartney, looked to be having the most fun at this event.

Kate’s dress was beautifully accentuated with a silver belt, over her dove grey scoop-neck chiffon dress.

Best At Staying In Character Award
The sequin detail on the bodice of Kristin Davis’ Michael Kors Fall 2008 is beautiful without being too over the top. Very Charlotte York McDougall Goldenblatt.

Best Use Of Colours Award
Normally I with ruched bodice, oversized bow, uneven hem and multi-coloured tiering of this Peter Som Fall 2008 dress, I may have been put off, but Maggie Gyllenhaal is one of the few who could pull this dress off.

Her Christian Louboutin Rosazissimo feather shoes are a perfect compliment.

Simple Yet Sophisticated Award
Sofia Coppola, who will be taking over from Victoria Beckham in Marc Jacobs next advertising campaign, keeps it simple in this stunning white satin Marc Jacobs drop waist gown.

Borderline Award
Michelle Monaghan wore this this burnt J Mendel one-shouldered gown. I particular love the leaf detail.

Best Rock n’ Roll Award
Zoe Kravitz kept to her unique style in this sea green crushed velvet gown. She added at touch of glam with a white feather boa.
