Anna Friel In Antonio Berardi – “Limitless” London Premiere

Anna Friel dazzled in white at a preview screening of her latest film “Limitless” in London last night.

The English actress was joined on the red carpet by co-star Bradley Cooper.

He was kept warm whilst Anna braved the cold weather in a sleeveless Antonio Berardi Spring 2011 dress.

Thankfully no tights or coat ruined our look at this gorgeous LWD.

She did pair her dress with black Roger Vivier peep-toes, but I barely notice them because of her colourful clutch.

Who Wore Hervé Léger By Max Azria Better? Kristen Stewart or Anna Friel

Kristen Stewart first wore this Hervé Léger by Max Azria Resort 2010 white and black body con dress on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” back in November.

I always think that something’s missing when it comes to Kristen, and on this occasion it’s a hairbrush.

Although she’s smiling, so that’s an improvement!

I do love her choice of shoe.

Anna Friel wore this dress after her last “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” performance at the at the Theatre Royal in London last month.

I love her faux fur coat, which was essentially as it’s freeeeezing in London!

I also love the red lips – the only accessory this dress needs.

I prefer Anna’s choice of shoe as well.

Although I’m not crazy about her hair either, I’d like to see this dress with something sleeker.

For me, Anna wins hands down.

What do you think?

Social Events Of The Weekend

9th Annual New York Times Arts & Leisure Weekend, New York

Natalie Portman has done something many of us wish we could have done…got our hands on the Rodarte for Target collection.

The petite actress wore a mustard slip dress, with a cute tulle overlay and a bow details on the shoulders which was featured in Teen Vogue.

She covered up wearing a black belted cardigan, whilst completing her look with Stella McCartney booties.

Natalie’s dress is now sold out, but you can find other pieces on from this collection on Target’s website.

Theatre Royal, London

Anna Friel was spotted leaving the Theatre Royal in London after her final performance of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” looking sensational wearing a Herve Leger Resort 2010 black and white bandage dress.

Like most of us in London she sported a (faux) fur coat in a bid to keep warm.

2010 NBC Universal’s Press Tour Cocktail Party, LA

When I saw this pretty pink Elise Øverland Resort 2010 dress on Melanie Brown, I was considering giving her a first ever compliment.

On reflection everything feels heavily weighted to the right with her one-sleeved dress and side-swept bun.

Also the necklace was so unnecessary with this pretty dress.

Close…but no Zig-a-zig-ha.

Dior Cocktails For Marion Cotillard And “Nine”, New York

Miss Dior aka Marion Cotillard looked beautiful wearing a silver lurex Christian Dior dress, which reminds me of the dress Charlize Theron wore last year.

I love the dress and the ruby pumps, but not so keen on the poodle perm.

“Leap Year” New York Premiere

A Pea In A Pod is the usual destination for expectant celebrities, but Amy Adams has Ms. Carolina Herrera on speed-dial.

The designer has reworked pieces from her current collections to create a custom-made wardrobe for Amy which included this red silk georgette dress.

I guess Ms. Herrera has found her new muse. Amy is glowing.

How I Met Your Mother`s 100th Episode Celebration, LA

Alyson Hannigan – the People’s Choice Favorite TV Actress – walked the red carpet wearing a BCBG printed dress with a cascading ruffle front.

She kept her accessories simple adding black clutch and Jimmy Choo “Lace” black patent sandals.

Social Events Of The Week

“A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s” Benefit, New York

Whilst trying to keep up with Fashion Week, LeeAnn sent me a note to tell me to make sure I looked at the Dries van Noten Spring 2010 collection.

I’m glad she did because I instantly fell in love with the ethnic prints and the one-sleeved blazers.

I often wondered who would be the first to wear this collection, and that honour went to Julianne Moore.

She looked fabulous in this hard to pull off ensemble.

Her ethnic print wrap dress was paired with a black blazer trimmed with a white strip to complete this unusually chic look.

Granted it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love it.

Wow.

Katharine McPhee blows me away wearing a Marchesa Fall 2009 one shoulder sculpted dress.

I’m even loving the hair with this look.

Either I’m coming down with something or Katharine just hit her first home run.

BDOTW contender.

Alexa Chung opted for a cheap yet chic Topshop studded one-shoulder dress paired with booties.

She arrived wearing a questionable leopard print coat.

‘Late Show With David Letterman’, New York

My first reaction was that I didn’t like Ashley Greene in this Bottega Veneta Resort 2010 striped suit, but after so many great red carpet dresses this look feels refreshing.

It also shows that both Ashley and her stylist are thinking outside the box, and not playing it safe.

My main problem is actually the striped shirt, because the suit is not so bad.

I think I would’ve loved this look if the shirt was a solid colour, or if Ashley had worn the same suit Penelope Cruz wore back in July.

London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, London

Anna Friel loves Antonio Berardi as she has worn his pieces many times before.

Not so many times that she needs an intervention like Leona Lewis does from Vivienne Westwood, but enough to know she appreciates his stunning designs.

The textured dress had an asymmetrical chiffon detail that moved beautifully on the runway.

Black pumps complete the look.

Christmas Illuminations Launch On The Champs-Elysees, Paris

Just last week I was complaining that we haven’t seen enough of Balenciaga’s Fall 2009 collection on the red carpet, and here we have Charlotte Gainsbourg upping the count to make 3 following Carine Roitfeld and Salma Hayek.

The actress arrived at this event wearing one of the printed plunging blouses paired with the lace bandeau, leather pants and peep-toe heels.

Aching cool as always.

“Brothers” New York Screening

For some reason I just can’t fall in love with Natalie Portman wearing this cute Jason Wu Spring 2010 strapless mini dress.

The dress has all the ingredients to make Natalie shine: the ruffles, the colour, the length and the contrasting waist belt, but it gets no love from me and I can’t figure out why.

The actress paired her dress with Aldo purple heels.

Emma Roberts opted for a Miu Miu Resort 2010 summery dress brought down with thick tights.

Navyboot Store Opening, Germany

Monica Cruz hasn’t yet met a Herve Leger bandaged dress she didn’t like.

This is 3 in a row.

Before Cheryl Cole, Cat Deeley was the nations sweetheart.

The TV presenter arrived at this event wearing Givenchy Holly strappy leather heels with a Preen Matt Lightening dress.

If you are thinking the dress looks a bit awkward, that’s because the thick strap on Cat’s right shoulder – as we are looking at it – should be on her left shoulder.

Regardless she still looks fabulous.

Who Wore YSL Better? Rachida Brakni or Anna Friel

During Cannes Film Festival French actress Rachida Brakni attended “A Prophet Premiere” wearing a strapless YSL Spring 2009 black satin gown.

She curly hair fell down to her shoulders, as she looked beautiful on the red carpet accessorizing her gown with a black clutch and a black and white bracelet.

Anna Friel wore the ivory runway version of this YSL gown with her hair styled into a classic updo when she attended the press evening for the stage production of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” in London.

The actress seemed a little tense and her face was in desperate need of some blot powder.

Rachida looked more graceful in her gown, so she wins for me.

The Cartier International Polo Day

Anna Friel has been injecting a lot of sassy edgier pieces in her closet recently, and she stays true to form wearing this sexy Antonio Berardi Fall 2009 black textured dress.

I love the sculptured shoulders, the square cut neckline and the fact that she didn’t wear tights with this dress. We had horrible weather this weekend in England as you can see from the moody clouds in the background.

Black heels and a black crocodile clutch complete this look.

Designer Saloni Lodha and Marissa Anschutz seem to be having a wonderful time.

Saloni is wearing a haltered dress from her own Spring 2009 collection which has a ruffled bib and a tiered skirt.

It’s perfect for a summers day, so it’s such a shame the bad weather made her wear a jacket and we don’t get to see all of the stunning details of her design.

Marissa was a more bold wearing her Saloni Cora strapless dress sans coat.

Her beige chiffon gathered strapless dress has mesh panel on the sides with a black velvet trim plus black and fluorescent pink chiffon detail and beading embellishment.

It’s a gorgeous dress, but I find my eyes drawn to her fuchsia pink Christian Louboutin Paquita satin sandals.

Neve Campbell doesn’t attend many events, so this is a rare treat.

The actress wore a multi-coloured tiered Moschino dress with black pumps.

The dress is nice, but the hairstyle ages her.

Honestly I almost didn’t recognise Ashley Roberts with so much clothing on.

Normally the most we see on her is a bra and hot pants when she’s performing with her group the PussyCat Dolls.

She really scrubs up well, looking very ladylike in her ravishing red Alexander McQueen pocketed dress with shoulder pads and a cowl neckline.

Naomie Harris’ cream demi-sheer D&G dress is instantly recognizable by the black appliqué butterfly detail on the neckline.

I love the ruffled hemline.

She did well wear the right coloured bra under this dress.

Lara Lewington is wearing the very popular Lipsy London zip edge strapless dress which only costs £35, whilst probably wearing thousands of pounds worth of Cartier jewels.
