Social Events Of The Week

“Star Trek” London Premiere

Zoe Saldana is not slowing down.

Last night at the London premiere, she gave us another head-to-toe perfect look wearing a delicate silver Azzedine Alaia halter-neck dress, with a full skirt, and a metallic silver waistband.

What I adored the most, apart from her glossy hair, and outstanding drop earrings, were her black lace-up Azzedine Alaia cut-out booties.

“The Soloist” Los Angeles Premiere

Anna Friel looks outstanding wearing an Ana Sekularc Spring 2009 asymmetrical LBD.

I love the Roger Vivier pointy heels, her sun kissed skin, and those stunning pearl drop earrings.

It’s always a delight to see Anna on the red carpet.

O. M. G.

Have you ever seen Halle Berry look so bad? I don’t think I ever have. This is a first.

The make-up is beyond shocking, I hate those streaks in her hair, and the dress is perfect for a summer vacation, but not really red carpet material.

If you think it can’t get any worse, she is wearing flip flops on the red carpet. My number one no no, along with sunglasses.

*shakes head, wonders why*

1st Annual Blossom Ball

Helena Christensen wore brightened up the red carpet, wearing a silk lilac Thakoon rose print billow dress

I love the drape top with the pencil skirt and 3/4 length sleeves.

With a hint of pink lips, Helena completes this look with a black bow waist belt, ruby ankle strap heels, and a black purse.

Orange is fast becoming the colour of this Spring/Summer season.

Padma Lakshmi wore this wonderful citrus colour in an Alberta Ferretti satin draped dress. Gold accessories add more warmth to the look.

*Sighs*

I have loved Oluchi Onweagba since her Gap ads, and she continues to astound me with her beauty.

The Nigerian model looked really beautiful wearing a Lanvin Spring 2009 strapless champagne coloured dress, with an embellished leopard print detail on the front.

My only criticism is that the dress appears to be a little tight around her hip area.

Planet Hollywood Celebrates The Opening Of PEEPSHOW, Las Vegas

After doing a post on Christian Louboutin Differa 140 sandals last week, Melanie Brown arrived at this event wearing them in turquoise, which didn’t go with her champagne fringed dress.

Heidi Montag will love these, but I don’t.

Lindsay Lohan was also at this event, wearing LBD that was just spoiling for a wardrobe malfunction. I bet she wasn’t wearing any tit tape.

Her Azzedine Alaia burgundy Ornate open toe heels are gorgeous though.

2009 Elle Style Awards

Anna Friel should have really taken the subtle hint from her Viktor & Rolf Fall 2008 dress which was telling her. NO.

No this will not look good on you.

My other problem is that Anna should have really considered a bra, because the twins are not holding up too well, and they’re also smuggling raisins.

The black statement one-shouldered gown over a nude underlay, was embellished with staples.

On the plus side, her hair and make-up was really nice.

Courtney Love wore my favourite dress from the Givenchy Spring 2009 Couture show I attended a few weeks ago.

I am glad that someone with a bit of character and attitude wore this gown, because only someone like her or Madonna can pull this off.

The long draped black gown has a shrug with puff ball shoulders, which are embellished with flower petals, that work their way down the sleeves.

Freida Pinto wore a black Chanel Resort 2009 dress, with a floral embellished see-through yoke.

I am not a fan of sheer yoke’s, but I would have preferred it to this plastic yoke.

She completed the look with gorgeous black strappy heels, whilst styling her hair in a chic updo.

Unfortunately, I don’t like this look. Maybe the runway belt would have helped, but I think I’m just clutching at straws.

My ray of shining light Thandie Newton didn’tt let me down. The British actress made a welcome return to the red carpet.

Last night she wore a multi-coloured Jonathan Saunders Spring 2009 floaty dress with a layered skirt.

She wore her dress with gold strappy sandals, and added a touch of crimson to her lips.

As much as I love Thandie, she has made 4 recent red carpet appearances, but her hairstyle has remained the same. Maybe she is having a bad hair week, but she needs to switch it up for next time.

Alexa Chung opted to wear a navy dress, which is very similar to the Chanel dress Emma Watson wore recently.

Sienna Miller like Marion Cotillard, was one of my red carpet favourites. But when I look at her in this ruffled green Matthew Williamson dress, and Louis Vuitton black tuxedo jacket with feathered shoulders, I just say meh! so what?

It just doesn’t move me. She just doesn’t move me anymore.

The gorgeous and impeccably dress Naomie Harris, walked the red carpet wearing a Dolce & Gabbana black strapless corset dress.

Singer Heidi Range wore RM by Roland Mouret ensemble which included an off-the-shoulder top. She accessorized with black peep-toes, a black clutch and a gigantic black bangle.

She was accompanied to the event by her boyfriend presenter Dave Berry.

Pixie Geldof’s LWD exposes the fact that her deodorant has run out.

Roisin Murphy has to be wearing the widest pants I have ever seen.

They’re from the Armand Basi One Spring 2009 collection, and her top is from the Givenchy Spring 2009 collection.

Alexandra Burke is new to the red carpet after winning the X Factor before Christmas.

I’m sure she already has a hair and make-up team, who are doing a fairly good job, but she needs to fire her stylist.

This nautical inspired black and white striped sequined D&G Spring 2009 tunic with a red sail boat, gets nil points from me.

Matthew Williamson’s show was one of my favourite shows of the entire Spring 2009 season. I covet every piece that was presented.

Radio and TV presenter Edith Bowman made really hard work of this Spring 2009 graphic print dress.

She made it look so frumpy, and totally undesirable.

On the plus side Natalie Imbruglia has returned to her natural roots.

The negative is her RM by Roland Mouret Chevalier fitted jacket and black pants.

It was an attempt at something new which I respect, but I would urge her to stick to cute dresses and flowing gowns.

This does not suit her at all.

Alice Dellal no doubt turned heads in this see-through black dress with fishnet tights.

Finch & Partners’ Pre-BAFTA Party

What a welcome relief to see the gorgeous Thandie Newton back on the red carpet.

I’ve really missed her, and it looks like she hasn’t lost any of her style when she attended this Pre-BAFTA party wearing a navy silk Chanel Resort 2009 asymmetrical mini dress.

She wore her dress with embellished heels, whilst carrying a black clutch.

Perfect in every way.

Freida Pinto was also wearing Chanel, but her haltered ruffled mini was from the Spring 2008 Couture collection.

Of all the BAFTA Award attendees, Freida’s gown is the one I am looking forward to the most tonight.

Emma Watson completes the Chanel threesome, wearing a navy dress from the Fall 2008 Couture collection.

I love the dress, and the matching satin shoes, but I can’t help wishing she had adjusted that collar better, as it looks really awkward.

I will hope to see see a different type of hairstyle on Emma in the future. I feel like I’ve seen this look a thousand times before.

Amy Adams has had her Giambattista Valli phase, now she has moved onto RM by Roland Mouret. This is the second time in a row the gorgeous actress has worn one of his dresses, and it’s a perfect fit.

This silver dress has an asymmetrical hem, and an overshot shoulder, which she opted to fold down.

She completed her look with black peep-toes, and a satin clutch.

Penelope Cruz opted for warmth over style, as she covered up her black dress with a full-length coat, whilst sporting freshly cut bangs.

Anna Friel will have PETA on her case, after wearing a fur stole, with her black corset and maxi skirt look.

Lily Allen added a burst of bright red to this black/navy event. How very refreshing.

2008 British Independent Film Awards

I do love it when British actress Sienna Miller and Keira Knightley step onto the red carpet but not together.  This is because they insist on holding each others hands the whole time like they are on a school trip, making it almost impossible to see their ensembles clearly.

That being said Sienna looks amazing wearing a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 mini black dress with large black paillette details on the shoulders, and brown paillette details cascading down the skirt which has a satin hem.

The dress was equally beautiful from the back, as it is open with a cowl detail.

She completed her look with thick tights and Christian Louboutin heels. I think this maybe one of the few times that I actually like tights on the red carpet.

Keira Knightley wore an interesting black and white high-necked gothic lace Balenciaga dress.

I always like Keira’s choices, because they’re never predictable.

British actress Anna Friel arrived on the red carpet wearing an Erdem Fall 2008 gown. The stunning satin dress has a contrast chiffon yoke, which makes the gown more interesting.

I love the abstract print of the bees, birds and butterfly design. I have the short version on my Net-A-Porter wish list.

She compliments her dress with a red clutch.

Eva Green will always be faithful to John Galliano, but every now and again she will cheat on him with Alexander McQueen.

The French actress arrived on the red carpet wearing a red velvet Alexander McQueen puff sleeve velvet dress with an empire line and a gathered hem.

She completed her look with Alexander McQueen burgundy square toe pumps, and an Alexander McQueen Union Jack clutch.
