More From The Golden Globes Red Carpet

Penelope Cruz wore a Armani Privé Spring 2005 black gown with a mermaid tail.

I like the lace the detail around the bust a shoulder line but I’m a little bored by Penelope in black again.

I feel that she’s trying to channel her Spanish roots here but it somehow looks a little messy.

Glenn Close sparkled in this black Oscar de la Renta floor length Fall 2009 dress.

I just feel it isn’t special enough for the Globes.

The bust line of the dress and the bare shoulders make her arms look too muscular.

Rose Byrne wore a Lanvin Pre-Fall 2010 dress in a deep purple with a bow detail at the waist.

I’m glad Rose decided to wear the dress in this colour but I apart from that I’m left feeling a little bored.

Kate Hudson walked the red carpet in a Marchesa Bridal Spring 2010 gown with sculptured band bodice and bottom flared skirt.

I just can’t make you my mind about this. Part of me is thinking “what the hell?” and the other part doesn’t mind it so much.

I’ve never really got why stars wear bridal looks on the red carpet but I’m actually quite drawn to the sculpting on the dress.

The shoes are way too heavy though.

Jaime Pressly is shimmering in this Kevan Hall Spring 2010 dress with a split up one side.

I prefer this dress on the model as I feel that it has more of an impact against brunette hair.

I don’t think the champagne coloured clutch compliments this dress at all.

Jenna Fischer wore a dress from Halston’s Spring 2010 collection.

I like it but I don’t love it. I just can’t see how this dress is event appropriate. This is a star’s chance to shine and this dress is never going to deliver that moment.

The Art of Elysium’s 3rd Annual Gala “Heaven”

This is an incredibly long post, so please click ‘read more…’ below to see the rest of the looks from this amazingly well dressed event.

I was starting to lose hope that I would ever see this amazing Marchesa Fall 2009 dress on the red carpet.

Olivia Wilde has fulfilled my wish by looking drop-dead gorgeous wearing the strapless nude suede dress.

I love those embroidered floral details, the complementary taupe clutch and her nude Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps.

I don’t know much about Amber Heard, but I’m really impressed with her on the red carpet and shocked that she always manages to wear such big name designers.

Last night she looked sensational wearing this red Christian Dior Spring 2010 belted gown with a chiffon bodice and a satin skirt.

Since Charlize Theron has been M.I.A. on the red carpet in a while, I guess John Galliano might have been looking for an interim muse.

It’s not often we see 3 great Dior Spring 2010 looks in the space of 2 days.

Miss Dior herself – Marion Cotillard wore Dior to the Critic’s Choice Awards on Friday, then Chloe Sevigny wore Dior to the NY Times Style Magazine’s Pre-Golden Globe Awards Party on Saturday.

It’s always a pleasure to see Camilla Belle on the red carpet.

The actress wore a grey Valentino Spring 2010 dress with a satin bow detail on the hip.

I love the way the cape and skirt fan out.  It would’ve been amazing to watch this dress in motion.

I’m not sure about those stunning heels with the dress, but the heels are divine on their own.

On Friday I was worried that after Apphia Michael wore Viktor & Rolf to the Wallpaper Design Awards, that we would only get to see these pieces from this Spring 2010 collection inside magazines.

Anna Paquin delights us by wearing a strapless pink tulle dress with exaggerated hips.

She also blows my theory that only one of each look was ever made for this collection, as hers is pink to the runway’s grey and blue.

An Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch, Boucheron diamond studs, a Tom Binns necklace and black gladiator heels complete her look.Read More…

Audi Celebrate The Golden Globes With Nominee Anna Paquin

This event was held for Anna Paquin, but I was in lust Dita von Teese.

The burlesque star stole Anna’s thunder looking exquisite wearing a baby blue corset dress with a cone-shaped bra from Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2010 ‘G Spot’ collection.

I think we are going to see a lot of this “underwear as outerwear” trend popping up on the red carpet.

Let’s pray it’s continues to be tastefully done.

I’m very much appreciating the hairstyle change and those stunning blue earrings.

Yet another BDOTW contender. It’s getting packed already and it’s only Monday.

Anna Paquin looked nice and neat wearing a fitted navy sheath Gianfranco Ferré dress, accented with a lavender sash tied to the waist.

Her sash was complemented by a lavender crystallized Gianfranco Ferrè clutch and Jil Sander platform heels.

Dita and Anna maybe worlds apart in the style stakes, but they both look fantastic.

Stylist Liz Goldwyn wore a sexy Gianni Versace LBD, with criss cross leather straps with jeweled buckles from the Bondage 1992 Couture collection.

Spike TV’s “Scream 2009!”

It’s a upsetting trend but some stars are skipping the red carpet for some events.

Jessica Alba was one of those stars who we only saw on stage at this event.

I guess she skipped the red carpet because she was presenting the award for ‘Most Anticipated Fantasy Movie’ to actor Johnny Depp.

A girl’s got to get ready for that moment.

Jessica looked beautiful wearing a Lanvin black floral metallic lame ¾ sleeve dress with draped detailing on the shoulder.

From head-to-toe this is the best I have seen her in a long while.

Despite being the new face of Armani underwear Megan Fox seems to love Martin Grant.

This is the second time she has worn a dress from the Paris based Australian designer.

Her red haltered Martin Grant Spring 2010 dress wraps and drapes around her toned body, as she sports a classic updo.

Anna Paquin walked on stage to accept her award for ‘Best Horror Actress’ wearing the same Marc Jacobs duchesse satin zip-embellished dress which Anne Hathaway wore to the Costume Institute Gala earlier this year.

Kate Bosworth opted for a sexy nude Alexander Wang Spring 2010 bandage dress, which she paired with leopard print heels.

Isabel Lucas is wearing a very detailed black and gold embroidered Chanel Resort 2010 mini dress, but with her newly lighten locks I just can’t help but be dumbstruck by her eyebrows.

Had I not read that this was Jamie King, I would never have recognised her.

The hair, dress and make-up are not what we would normally expect to see from Jamie who usually fades into the background.

She was front and center at this event wearing a nude Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 tiered asymmetric mini dress, which has been modified from the runway.

Love the dress, and the heavier make-up is different, but the hair is a big no-no.

Christina Ricci is always totally captivating on the red carpet, no matter what she wears.

Even her hair is quite fascinating as she changes again from light brunette to this raven colour.

She showed-off her legs wearing a Jasmine di Milo Fall 2009 dress with cut-out detailing on the yoke, paired with YSL Trib Two patent platform heels.

Olivia Munn showed off her tanned pins wearing a blue French Connection long sleeved fitted dress.

I love how this colour pops.

Victoria Justice looks like she has grown a few inches.

The Zoey 101 star was totally decked out head-to-toe in Rock & Republic.

Her look cute included wearing a Rock & Republic’s “Patricia” v-neck mini dress with leather and sheer chiffon trim paired with Rock & Republic’s “Brooklyn” military-inspired leather jacket in deep purple, and “Leena” peep toe ankle booties and “Newport” clutch in black.

Nylon Magazine’s TV Issue Launch Party

Anna Paquin is NYLONs’ September 2009 cover girl and was the guest of honour at this event.

She arrived alongside actor Stephen Moyer wearing a Herve Leroux LBD with black peep-toes.

Her sexy pencil dress had a sheer plunging neckline and sheer long sleeves.

I would’ve preferred this dress to be sleeveless like the dress Megan Fox wore on Letterman.

AnnaLynne McCord also opted for a sexy LBD, but hers was a strapless Camilla and Marc Lotus Frock tulle dress.

I love the playfulness of this dress with the tulle skirt, which suits AnnaLynne as she always seems to be having fun on the red carpet.

The feminine frills were countered with a large studded belt.

I love the pops of colour which added a touch of tangerine and lemon fresh sunshine to her look.

Those of you who purchased the Zara Fall 2009 LBD with pointed shoulders look away now, as Aubrey O’Day might totally ruin this look for you.

The ex-Danity Kane singer wore the form fitting dress, with bright pink peep-toe heels, and shocking pink lipstick.

Apart from Stella McCartney, Jenna Dewan is the only person who has made the dreaded thigh-high boot not look tacky.

Maybe it’s the maroon colour or her ditsy print floral dress, but I really like how she worked these boots.

When I was looking at pictures of Katie Cassidy today, another blonde bombshell came to mind – Charlize Theron.

I’m not saying they look alike, but her hairstyle is very similar to how Theron styles her hair.

My ‘Flavour of the Week’ looked fabulous wearing a one-shouldered animal print Nicole Miller dress with a fan detail on the bodice.

I love the asymmetrical detail on the skirt and the unexpected raspberry Rock & Republic’s “Nika” pumps which brighten up the look.

Animal prints are not easy to pull off, but I think Katie does so very well.

Whilst a lot of people opted for black at this party, Madeline Zima wore a bright orange dress with pink tulle underskirt.

Her stand out dress was paired with a teal clutch and nude peep-toes.

Alison Brie wore an electric blue French Connection Fast Bonny asymmetrical dress which was very popular with UK soaps stars.

Grey accessories completed the look.

It’s Britney b***h.  No actually it’s a blonder Kristin Cavallari.

“The Hills” stars showed of her lighten ‘do as she walked the red carpet wearing a silver metallic cold-shoulder Elise Øverland Fall 2009 dress, paired with some black ankle boots and a black clutch.

I miss cute strappy sandals. Why do ankle boots have to be paired with everything these days?

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better? Anna Paquin or Cameron Diaz

Audrina Patridge’s Zuhair Murad dress wasn’t the only re-run of the Teen Choice Awards this weekend. Cameron Diaz’ Alexander McQueen dress was too.

Anna Paquin wore her black Alexander McQueen cheongsam with a mandarin collar, capped sleeves and zip with contrast piping detail, when she made an appearance on the “Late Show With David Letterman” last month.

She styled her hair into a classic updo, and wore Jimmy Choo slingbacks to complete her chic look.

Cameron looked svelte in her super-flattering grey version at the “Teen Choice Awards” which she paired with Pierre Hardy blue heels.

Many of you thought Diaz dressed too old for a teen event. I personally think she was setting a good example to the young actresses she walked the red carpet with – Abigail Breslin and Sofia Vassilieva.

In spite of that I much prefer the black version of this dress so Anna wins for me. I also prefer this dress zipped and not left open like Cameron’s dress.

This dress is available to purchase in black from Browns Fashion for £760/€884.34/$1,250.73. The grey version is available from Neiman Marcus for $1,845.
