A Diamond Is Forever Pre-Oscar Dinner

Julianne Moore was the host of this event.

She arrived wearing a Lanvin Spring 2009 ensemble consisting of a blue asymmetrical blouse with a puffy sleeve, and a black skirt, which tied at the waist.

Her look was complete with YSL criss-cross strappy sandals.

Angie Harmon wore this edgy Todd Lynn Fall 2008 black halter dress, which had furry details on the shoulder.

I love how fierce she look here. Totally unexpected.

Camilla Belle’s sequined sheath dress is divine.

I love the pop of colour on her lips, and the way the black peplum at the waist kicks back.

I got really excited to see Dita von Teese again, but for what might be the first time ever, she really lets me down with this dress. Talking about aging.

The dress is too boring, too plain and too safe for Dita. I just can’t believe I am typing those words with reference to her.

Sharon Stone wore a black silk chiffon Christian Dior Spring 2009 halter top embellished with gold paillettes.

Her look was complete with black pants, a black blazer and a Lady Dior ‘Cannage’ bag.

Love her or hate her, Kim Kardashian continues to impress. This time she kept her look simple in a black gown, whilst showing off some stunning diamonds.

Who would thought an event hosted by Julianne Moore would have Kim as an attendee?

Debra Messing was one of my red carpet faves for a while, but I feel lost looking at her here.

I don’t know what I love more. Natalia Vodianova’s strappy sandals, or her mint green dress. ♥.

Monique Lhuillier looks stunning in her own self designed ruffled strapless dress.

Helena Christensen is purplicious in her stunning plunging gown.

Lily Collins has been making many red carpet appearances, despite what she actually does still not being entirely clear.

She wore a crushed BCBG Max Azria taupe dres, with gold heels.

The Entertainment Industry Foundation Gala

Gwyneth Paltrow was dressed in all white, barring her pink and yellow Roger Vivier heels.

The actress wore a Balmain Spring 2009 jacket with satin lapels, over a white plunging Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2009 dress, which had contrasting fabrics of velvet, satin and jersey.

Even though her clothes are all current, she is oozing a retro vibe.

I love the invisible make-up.

Gwynie’s BFF Beyonce Knowles arrived wearing a black fitted Jean-Paul Gaultier Fall 2007 Couture dress, with a black beaded multiple layered necklace.

The only thing sparkling here, are the jewel details on her heels.

I don’t like this at all.

I almost fell off my chair when I saw that Jennifer Aniston’s BFF was NOT wearing black.

Courteney Cox took a break for the norm, to wear this L’Wren Scott metallic spaghetti strapped dress, with matching heels.

I think Dakota Fanning or Miley Cyrus would better suit this haltered black mini dress, with a white bow tie, than Sheryl Crow.

Rita Wilson brought a water brust of colour to the red carpet, in her aqua strapless dress.

She wore the dress with a stunning Lanvin statement necklace, but sadly her pointy pumps let her down.

Angie Harmon’s grey Kaufman Franco jersey dress hugs her in all the right places.

Red Carpet Trend Of 2008 – Jumpsuits


The Spring 2008 runways were full of jumpsuit, as were the Fall 2008 and Spring 2009 runways. So it would be safe to say that the jumpsuits trend will not be going away anytime soon.

My favourite jumpsuits this year were worn by Malin Akerman, Joy Bryant, Angie Harmon and Amy Adams.

Spring 2009 jumpsuit are so wide-legged, you would be forgiven for thinking that they were dresses, like the Missoni one’s both Joy Bryant and Kerry Washington wore.

ELLE Magazine’s 15th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute Red Carpet

Although I did not agree that Anne Hathaway was the Best Dressed star on the red carpet last week, I do agree that her style choices get better, less safe and less predictable.

The stunning actress wore this magnificent navy Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 short sleeved metallic red striped suit. She wore the dress with a metallic sash tied at the waist, and two-tone platform shoes.

She did not wear this suit as it appeared on the runway, so she completely made it her own.

Kerry Washington obviously had no time to go sight-seeing in Paris, were she attended the Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 collection, because within 48 hours she was already back in New York to attend this event.

The actress wore a blush pink and nude Calvin Klein Resort 2009 ribbed bandeau dress, with two-tone platform heels.

For me she was one of the best dressed at this event. STUNNING.

Nicole Kidman wore a forest green Prada Resort 2009 dress.

The satin dress was embellished with green jewels on the breast-bone and waist.

She completed her look bizarrely with pink heels, but it is better than safe black.

I absolutely adore Jenny McCarthy wearing this Gucci Fall 2008 dress.

The black drop waist dress with a velvet skirt and gold embellishments, is very much on the folkloric trend, with fringed shoulders and sash on the waist.

Jenny gets better and better on the red carpet.

Eva Mendes gives us her trademark pout wearing a sequined tunic dress with striped panels.

Jennifer Lopez kinda hits a bum note for me in this Dolce & Gabbana dress. Her sheer dress is so transparent that it reveals her bodysuit/spanx underneath.

Even her hair is a little off.

Kate Beckinsale is one of those actresses you don’t hear much about, but she always makes an great impact on the red carpet.

She does so here by wearing a stunning one-shoulder Derek Lam gown, which she make all the more elegant with her updo, Jimmy Choo clutch and gold earrings.

Model and current Calvin Klein poster boy, Gabriel Aubry escorted to gorgeous baby mama, Halle Berry to this event.

He look gorgeous, but then he always does. She looks gorgeous, but I am not at all crazy about her Roberto Cavalli ensemble.

It is not as classic, nor chic, as I have come to expect from Halle. To me this is something Kim Kardashian would wear.

Sorry Halle.

Only Angie Harmon can make a grey Dolce & Gabbana dress look this beautiful.

Katharine McPhee is gorgeous in a green Karen Zambos Baretta silk dress.

Isla Fisher shows off her post baby figure in this black cocktail dress.

Could Jane Fonda be more lovely?

Courteney Cox jazzed up her satin cobalt blue Alessandro Dell’Acqua dress, with an array of statement necklaces.

I adore the colour on her.

Nicollette Sheridan is really making an effort lately, and I think she look amazing in this LBD.

The former fiancée of Michael Bolton, has improved since the split, so I may just cautiously downgrade her on my Fashion Failures list.

Sigourney Weaver often struggles on the red carpet. She took a night of wearing her favoured designer, Prada to wear this green Bottega Veneta Fall 2008 dress, with an asymtetric draped neckline.

Simply stunning, Sheryl Crow.
