Who Wore Emilio Pucci Better? Ciara, Anna Dello Russo or Kylie Minogue

Ciara wore this nude fringed Emilio Pucci tassel and mirror detail dress from the Spring 2011 collection to Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy Gala at The Beverly Hilton Hotel earlier this year.

The singer paired the hippie-luxe dress with matching suede YSL ‘Tribtoo’ heels and diamond earrings.

She certainly ramped up the sex appeal of this dress, opting to leave the tie-up detail open and expose her super toned body. I’m not keen on her shoe choice as I think she could have picked a much more interesting pair and her diamond earrings are not very well-suited to the style of the dress.

Anna Dello Russo was next to wear this dress whilst attending Emilio Pucci’s Fall 2011 presentation in Milan. The style icon naturally took the fashion forward approach, teaming the dress with two tone Sergio Rossi heels, gold statement earrings and a striped Louis Vuitton clutch.

I think Anna picked the perfect accessories for this outfit and looks fantastic. Her cut-out heels in contrasting gold and tan colours are gorgeous.

Most recently, Kylie Minogue wore the same dress to catch a screening of ‘Hurly Burly’ at the Garrick Theatre in London this month.

The petite star kept her look more demure by lacing the tie-up detail in the front tighter. She added a pair of simple nude Jimmy Choo ‘Vita’ heels and a patterned clutch. I love Kylie in this outfit as she definitely knows how to rock a Pucci dress, but I do wish she’d done something more interesting with her hairstyle.

Ciara’s out of the running based on her poor choice of accessories and even though Kylie looks amazing, her uninspiring hairdo edges her out of the competition too. Anna’s standout heels and bold accessories complement this dress perfectly and makes her the clear winner.

Who Wore Balmain Better? Halle Berry or Anna Dello Russo

Halle Berry was the first to wear this Balmain jacquard suit from the Fall 2010 collection.

The Oscar winning actress wore this masculine look with a feminine twist to the “Frankie and Alice” LA Premiere.

Anna Dello Russo wore the same look during Paris Fashion Week as she made her way to the Balmain Fall 2011 presentation.

Halle added black heels and a black sheer top to her look, whereas Anna added a white shirt, Victoria Beckham sunglasses, gold peep-toes and a Miu Miu clutch.

Anna wins as I love how she styled this look. I wouldn’t have paired this look with a white shirt, but I love how much better it looks than the runway look.

Anna Dello Russo In Balenciaga – Gucci Fall 2011 Presentation

After the Gucci Fall 2011 presentation we spotted Anna Dello Russo entertaining the paparazzi and style bloggers.

A blogger papped the ‘Runway to Sidewalk’ Queen in her natural habitat wearing a colourful Balenciaga Fall 2007 jacket.

She paired her jacket with red leggings, a pink Bottega Veneta clutch and Prada wedges.

Only Anna can slam all these colours together and make it work.

Who Wore Emilio Pucci Better? Anna Dello Russo or Fergie

When it comes to fashion these two women are fearless.

Anna Dello Russo was the first to wear this Kermit green Emilio Pucci Fall 2010 feathered coat.

A blogger took this photo of Anna whilst we waited to get into the Emilio Pucci Spring 2011 show during Milan Fashion Week.

Before the real show, we saw the ‘Anna show’. Street style photographers snapped their favourite subject as she stopped traffic in order to create her own runway.

Her Bottega Veneta heels complemented her coat perfectly and I adore those turquoise drop earrings.

Fergie wore the same coat when she was spotted at the ‘Red Bull F1 Black Eyed Peas Secret Concert’ in London last week.

She teamed her dress with those Jimmy Choo ‘Ciara’ heels we first saw on Leighton Meester.

Both look great, but Fergie’s coat overwhelms her slightly and I prefer Anna’s accessories so she wins for me.

Front Row @ Alberta Ferretti – Anna Dello Russo In YSL

At today’s Alberta Ferretti Spring 2011 presentation I was seated in between Byran Boy and Anna Dello Russo.

Talk about about making me a fashion sandwich.

The true style icon that is Anna Dello Russo was the sweetest person I’ve ever met.

I think she remembered me from London when I took her picture because she smiled and said hi to me before taking her seat.

She was wearing an off-the-shoulder YSL Spring 2010 dress which is embroidered with strawberries.

I had to ask her about the hat. She said she likes to come up with something different.

So many people take her picture that she doesn’t want anyone to look at a picture of her and think “oh she’s done that before”.

I think she takes her “job” as a style icon very seriously, but in a very tongue-and-cheek way hence the cherry hat.

When I asked her what’s next she said “fromage”.

Now that will be interesting.

Whilst in Milan she will be styling for Moschino so therefore she may not have the time to take in many other shows.

She told me that she’s very much looking forward to Paris. I’m looking forward to seeing her cheesy hat.

Dolce & Gabbana’s Men’s 20th Anniversary Party

It was mostly an all black affair on the red carpet for the “Dolce & Gabbana’s Men’s 20th Anniversary” held during Menswear Fashion Week in Milan on Saturday.

Monica Bellucci looked like panther purring in her black satin and lace Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Peaches Geldof wore the same Dolce & Gabbana fringed dress from the Spring 2010 collection we’ve seen thrice before on the red carpet.

Penelope Cruz, Dita von Teese and Eastenders actress Emer Kenny have all worn this dress with varying levels of success.

With her hair worn up in a chic updo Rachel Weisz dazzled on the red carpet wearing a sequin strapless Dolce & Gabbana mini dress with black strappy sandals.

Juliette Binoche wore a black satin ruched Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress paired with a black crop blazer and black satin pumps.

Stefano Gabbana, Camilla Alves, Matthew McConaughey, Letizia Moratti, Giovanni Terzi, Domenico Dolce all posed together on the red carpet prior to the event.

Camilla and Letizia Moratti clearly didn’t get the all black memo.

Camilla wore a white chiffon Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress with jewel detail, whilst Letizia wore a red satin Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Margherita Missoni was my favourite on this red carpet, mixing her mustard leopard print Dolce & Gabbana dress with leopard print heels.

Eva Herzigova wore a leopard print and polka dot Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010 ensemble.

I’m usually more excited about what Anna dello Russo wears, but I don’t feel that on this occasion.

Her fringed black Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010 dress is very subdued for someone with such a daring fashion sense.

Other guests at the event included Morgan Freeman, Chace Crawford, and Nick McCarthy from Franz Ferdinand.

Surprisingly Madonna wasn’t there.
