Social Events Of The Week

Oceana, Nautica & Vanity Fair Celebrate World Oceans Day, New York

Amber Valletta wore a strapless silver Oscar de la Renta Resort 2010 dress, which was recently presented.

The dress has an interesting origami detail on the skirt, which very much reminds me of the strapless dress Myleene Klass wore during Cannes recently.

This is a beautiful sophisticated dress, so I really don’t like how Amber has opted to toughen up her look with those black peep-toes booties.

I’ve been wondering what is it about Estelle that’s so different. She seems to be glowing lately. Then I realised that she has taken off her braces.

I love the swirly print mini dress, it has a very 60s vibe to it, but her lilac clutch, and blue bangle ruin this look for me.

The saying goes, “Before you leave the house, take one thing off.” In this case it should have been two.

Her look is paired with tan Jimmy Choo Prize t-bar sandals.

3rd Annual American Institute For Stuttering Benefit Gala, LA

I love this silver and black beaded Marc Bouwer Spring 2009 halter dress, but not on Emily Blunt.

The dress looks spectacular on the runway, because it is considerably shorter. Emily should have opted for the shorter length.

Simon Aboud Book Launch Party, London

Looking stylishly dishevelled Kate Bosworth wore an interesting painted Josh Goot Fall 2009 top, which looks like it should belong in an art gallery.

She paired her work of art with a simple black mini skirt, a gold purse and Nicholas Kirkwood booties.

8th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, LA

Angie Harmon looks amazing wearing a Ikat printed chiffon Kaufman Franco wrap dress.

I love the leather straps, as it reminds me of my favourite Michael Kors dress, which has the same detail.

Is it me or does AnnaLynne McCord just get hotter with every red carpet appearance?

This girl really knows how to make things interesting. I should be frowning that she’s wearing a simple black sheath dress, but the back detail and her elegantly coiffed hair really make this a sizzling look.

Keep it coming AnnaLynne.

Oceana Celebrates World Oceans Day, LA

January Jones’ look is ultra soft and feminine in this lemon dress.

I’m sure you will have noticed that the braided belt details on the dress, matched the braids in her hair to complete this Grecian inspired look.

I adore her make-up.

Apollo Theater’s 75th Anniversary Gala Concert & Awards Ceremony, New York

Mariah Carey please give us something new. I feel like I have seen this type of Roberto Cavalli dress on her a million times before.

“Rock To Erase MS” Red Carpet

WOW. This red strapless Farah Angsana Fall 2009 gown, is so far away from the Kristin Cavallari we’re used to seeing on the red carpet.

This is what happens when a reality TV star takes herself out of her comfort “uniform” zone of Herve Leger and Trib Two’s, and tries something different.

Melissa George picked a cream leather Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 dress, with an airbrush print. This is very different from the bandage dresses we are used to seeing from Max Azria.

The panel down the front, helps give her the illusion of a very tiny waist.

Angie Harmon wore a Moschino Spring 2009 black and taupe sleeveless dress, with a cute ruffled neckline, and chiffon floral appliqués around the waist.

Her look was complete with very sexy strappy sandals.

One thing I will say about Avril Lavigne, is that she hasn’t dialed down her look since getting married.

Jessica Biel, Rachel Bilson, and even the hottest chick on the planet Adrian Lima, all dialed down their looks once becoming part of a couple.

That being said, it’s not the best dress on this red carpet, which further proves she hasn’t changed a bit.

Yes we have all given credit to Kim Kardashian toning down her trashy ways, but in this grey jersey dress, she’s totally muted.

Loving the nude lips though.

Jessica Lowndes wore silver accessories with her Rebecca Taylor green strapless dress, which had a ruffled detail on the skirt.

Jewel’s foot has finally healed, so now she can walk the red carpet unaided. Woohoo for her.

Like Jessica, silver accessories were used to punch up her purple tiered mini silk organza Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 dress with tiered skirt dress.

Amanda Bynes wore a white dress, which is cute enough, but I can’t help but always be so bored by her. Her look is so formulaic, and it all starts with the hair.

She completes her look with gold tribute sandals.

Alberta Ferretti And C.H.I.P.S. 2009 Spring Luncheon

Jessica Stroup wore a cute white paillette covered Ferretti dress, adding an edge with a black ribbon tied around her neck, and black booties.

Very interesting accents.

Nicky Hilton also added a slight edge to her bohemian Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Aztec paisley dress, with an olive green Matthew Williamson for H&M cropped leather jacket, and snakeskin platform heels.

For a red carpet newbie, Lynn Collins is making a very impressive impact.

I won’t pretend I’m crazy about her shoe choice. A nude heel would have been my preference to compliment the nude layers on her Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti silk chiffon tiered dress.

Marisa Tomei looks like she was having fun at this event, wearing a gorgeous turquoise embroidered Alberta Ferretti pocketed mini dress, with equally gorgeous ivory heels.

Quite frankly, I’m lusting after the whole look.

Angie Harmon wore a flapper style Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 dress.

Her dress had an orange underlay, with a fringed web-like black overlay.

She’s had better appearances on the red carpet. I would’ve liked to seen her in something that had more of a Spring-like feel to it, like the other attendees.

29.04.09 In Her Closet

In Angie Harmon’s Closet – Matthew Williamson


Actress Angie Harmon arrived at Prince’s The Purple Party Oscar After Party for LotusFlow3r.com at Avalon wearing a very pretty Matthew Williamson Poppy shift dress.

The black demi-sheer silk chiffon shift dress with floral sequin embellishment, has a beaded trim, and three-quarter length frilled sleeves. This is the perfect alternative to the LDB.

You can buy this dress from the Net-A-Porter US site $1,740, or the international site for £1,223/€1,565.

Kevan Hall Fall 2009


Because of the bad economy their isn’t an official Mercedes-Benz L.A. Fashion Week. This didn’t stop Kevan Hall showing off his Fall 2009 collection yesterday. His collection was shown as part of a charity event with The Colleagues, benefiting The Children’s Institute.

Kevan presented First Lady worthy sheaths, along with structured dresses in tweed and wool.

The red carpet gown had a colour palette of earthy shades of ruby, bronze and brown.

The stand-out piece was the red one-shouldered gown.


Molly Sims wore a bright cranberry coloured one-shouldered dress custom-designed by Kevan Hall for the event. The dress was decorated with real, freeze-dried cranberries to promote a new cranberry body wash by Dial. I kid you not.


This event was full of colourful pieces and Angie Harmon kept that going wearing a fuschia pink satin dress.

This colour was all over the Fall 2009 runways, so Ms Harmon is getting on the trend train very early.


I’m not sure about those two shades of blue Garcelle Beauvais is wearing with her yellow cowl-neck dress. The shoes would have been enough.


Lisa Rinna wore a belted taffeta v neck shimmering green dress. This is a surprisingly sophisticated look for Lisa, after her shameless campaign to get herself back on Melrose Place.


Virginia Madsen wore a form-fitting leopard print Kevan Hall Fall 2008 dress, with gold strappy sandals, and a Mary Norton clutch. Gorgeous.

Who Wore Todd Lynn Better? Melissa George or Angie Harmon


Actress Melissa George wore this edgy Todd Lynn Fall 2008 dress, when she arrived at the Annual Oxfam party in Hollywood last year.

This sexy dress has an open back with a low v-neck, and fur sleeves, which Melissa wore with black pumps.

Angie Harmon wore the same dress with her hair tied back, and black peep-toes, to the Diamonds in Africa Benefit, last month.

Although I prefer Angie’s peep-toes, I love Melissa’s hair, and this dress suits her mystic. Angie is a bit miss goodie-two-shoes for this dress.
