America Ferrera & Esquire Host A Save The Children Benefit & An Evening With “Ugly Betty”

America Ferrera & Esquire Host A Save The Children Benefit

The cast of “Ugly Betty” attended two events in New York City last night, but it was only America Ferrera – host of this benefit – who had two looks.

America walked the red carpet wearing a black Moshino safety pin-embellished crepe dress paired with gold peep-toes.

I love the stunning slim-fitting silhouette plus the safety pins and Swarovski crystals embellishments, but I’m not a fan of mixing metals.

My personal preference is that you either wear gold or silver, but it’s a minor detail when she looks this amazing.

Evening With “Ugly Betty”

Becki Newton looked amazing wearing a ruffled Prabal Gurung Fall 2009 sleeveless top paired with a striped tulip skirt from the same collection.

She took a night off wearing her favourite Jimmy Choo Karina studded shoe-boots and opted for a sexy black sandal.

Perfectly petite and polished as always.

Becki picked this look out a few weeks ago during New York Fashion Week when she visited the designer at his New York studio.

I don’t know about you, but I actually prefer this look on America Ferrera.

I adore her cropped pants and the 3/4 length sleeved jacket which nips her in at the waist to give her a streamlined silhouette.

It’s such a chic interpretation of a pants suit, that I wish to emulate this look as soon as I can.

Gold peep-toes and a white v-neck tee complete the look.

Vanessa Williams adds an interesting element to her asymmetrical LBD with two tone ankle strapped heels.

America Ferrera’s Gotham Magazine Cover Launch Party

America Ferrera looked gorgeous at the Gotham Magazine Party held in her honour last tonight.

The chic cover star wore a light blue cap sleeve Malandrino Resort 2009 dress, with a dramatic deep v-neck.

I love everything about this look. The colour, the collar, the plunging neckline, the interesting square panel that draws in her waist, her hair, and her make-up.

This is the best I’ve seen America look, for a long time.

Her gorgeous cast-mates were there to support her.

Becki Newton wore the 3.1 Phillip Lim winding zipper ruffle dress, which both Kate Bosworth and Lucy Liu have worn already.

The unique semi-sheer black dress has winding, layered metal zips from the collar to the hemline, which the star wears with black pointy pumps.

Despite this being a re-run, Becki still injects a bit of freshness to the dress.

Vanessa Williams continues her love affair with Matthew Williamson’s electric prints.

For this event she wore a Matthew Williamson Ambroise georgette dress. The striking silk dress has a low v-neck, cap sleeves, and tie at the waist.

I couldn’t find a full-length picture of Vanessa, but I’ll hope that she didn’t wear black heels with this dress, vivid yellow would have been awesome.

Vanessa looks flawless, and you can too if you buy this dress from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $1,225, or the international site for £575/€690.

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.

05.02.09 Premiere

"He’s Just Not That Into You" New York Screening

After the He’s Just Not That Into You LA premiere I was excitedly waiting for the next premiere in hope that all 4 women would wow me again.

Unfortunately at the screening last night, Ginnifer Goodwin was the only star from the film in attendance. So the chances of recreating that red carpet magic look lost.

I love Ginnifer’s make-up, but her two-tone halter dress, does nothing for me.

America Ferrera in trademark black, was also at this screening. The Ugly Betty star wore her black suit with blue suede shoes.

Lindsay Price’s wore a very sexy LBD, with a sweet white and gold floral necklace. All in all this event fail to garner any excitement from me.

Who Wore Diane von Furstenberg Better? America Ferrera or Kelly Brook


America Ferrera arrived at the 2008 ALMA Awards wearing a strapless black and white striped Diane von Furstenberg Kensington dress.

She wore her dress with a white pair of Christian Louboutin Jolie Noeud Dorcet shoes, her hair pulled back, and bright red lips.

UK TV presenter Kelly Brook wore the same dress as part of a nautical theme, when she opened the London Boat Show at ExCeL last month in London. Complete with sailor hat, and red strappy sandals.

Although the dresses are the same, America’s has been modified on the bodice.

Despite the hat, Kelly wears it better for me, as America’s white shoes are too obvious.


This dress is available to purchase from Matches Fashion for £637, and DvF.com for $750.

26.01.09 Worst Dressed

2009 SAG Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
I would really like to know what was going on in America Ferrera’s mind when she picked this Vera Wang gown.

The colour surprisingly washed her out, the draping on the hips is extremely unflattering, and the black tulle pieces that criss-crosses across her bodice was just annoying and only added to the overall disappointment of this gown.

Deja Vu Award
Penelope Cruz fails again with the same hairstyle as the Golden Globe Awards, and another dress that fails to wow me despite being by Azzedine Alaia.

Most Underwhelming Award
Angelina Jolie, we get it. We get that fact that you would look great in a potato sack. We also get the fact that you don’t care about how you look on the red carpet, and that you no longer try.

But you could have nipped in this Max Azria Spring 2009 gown just a tad to give it some shape.

Oh and sweetie, you have the dress on back to front. It was presented as a plunge-neck dress.

Non Supporting Actress Award
Emily Blunt’s Pamella Roland Spring 2009 silver dress sparkled. It was gorgeous.

But the top half just was very uncomfortable to look at. I know it would have been impossible to wear a bra with dress, but the twins lacked support.

Most Disappointing Award
Kyra Sedgwick always looks spectacular every red carpet season. This season, I have not been swept off my feet by her.

This vintage Chanel dress was very ill fitting around the bust for me. Hopefully she will wow me at the Oscars.

I Should Be Thankful It’s Not Black But…Award
But Rosario Dawson doesn’t wear this pewter Dolce & Gabbana mermaid gown well, which is surprising for someone with her curves.

The dress is very fussy around the bust area, and has also been worn by another celebrity much better.

Worst White Award
There was a lot of white on the red carpet last night, but Olivia Wilde’s was the least flattering. Surprisingly it was a Ralph Lauren Spring 2009 gown.

Too Dark Award
I love the dramatic nature of this Carolina Herrera strapless gown that Marcia Cross is wearing. But I just think it was way too dark for her.

This would suit someone like Dita von Teese, who can wear dark Gothic type gowns with her pale skin.

Worst Desperate Housewives Star Award
Nicolette Sheridan wore a sea blue asymmetric Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 dress. I like the dress, but there is something about Nicolette that cheapens the whole look for me.

Too Casual Award
Tina Fey wore a black strapless Brian Reyes dress, which is cute, but it would have been even cuter on Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens or someone else around that age group.
