2010 Gracie Awards – Annalynne McCord In Alice + Olivia

Annalynne McCord was giving us plenty of attitude on the red carpet for the “Alliance For Women In Media’s 2010 Gracie Awards” in LA last night.

If I looked this amazing I would be doing exactly the same.

The “90210″ actress wore a custom made Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet gown.

The nude pink gown is constructed of ½ inch strips of organza, taffeta and chiffon silks which are fitted closely to the body down to the knee, where the gown blossoms to the floor in tiered bias cut ruffles to create a flowering effect.

If you look closely you can see that the gown has crystal detailing around the neckline and bottom of the bodice.

I loved the simple diamond earrings and her dramatic diamond bracelet.

This is definitely a BDOTW contender.

13th Annual Hollywood Awards Gala Ceremony

Hilary Swank continues to give red carpet master classes, this time wearing a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2009 black gown.

The cut-out details some how make the actress look even more slender and taller, and the embellish details prevent this from being a boring black gown.

Oscar buzz will guarantee you one thing – an endless supply of stunning dresses to wear on the red carpet – and that’s exactly what Carey Mulligan has been wearing lately.

The style-icon-in-the-making wore a Prabal Gurung Spring 2010 black beaded chiffon strapless dress with shirttail hem and silk faille bowtie to cinched in her waist.

She teamed her dress with tortoise-shell heels and a chunky gold bracelet.

I’m loving the quiff.

Zooey Deschanel is probably the only person who I feel dresses up with tights, rather than covers up with tights.

We often see her in various colours of tights, but on this occasion she opted for black to match the black trims on her cute Luella Spring 2010 dress.

Her look was paired with Martin Lewis for Luella bow accented heels and a black Chanel bag.

Like the runway model Zooey wears a black bow in her hair, but she opted to wears hers at the back.

There were a lot of black dresses at this event, but Kate Beckinsale’s Michael Kors Resort 2010 dress was made interesting with the asymmetrical neckline and the draped detail on the skirt.

Long gold earrings and a chunky cuff complete the sophisticated look.

Despite Diane Kruger being one of the few not to wear black at this event, I wasn’t crazy about her look.

She kept her look light and feminine wearing a Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2010 white silk dress with a rise and fall hem, but unfortunately the nude heels really let her down.

I loved how this gown billowed on the runway, and although that drama is lost on the red carpet Diane still tried to make it work.

I also preferred how the dress sits above the knee on the model, the length feels a bit awkward on Diane.

Julianne Moore is not afraid of colour, as she wore a beautiful coral dress with voluminous sleeves.

I adore the colour on her.  She can be so breath-taking at times without much effort.

The actress paired her dress with Chanel ankle strap heels, and a black Bottega Veneta Impero satin clutch.

Michelle Monaghan looked stunning in a black strapless dress with a floral embroidered detail on the bodice.

She glows as brightly as her Martin Katz jewels.

Dare I say this, but I’m bored.

Charlize Theron normally blows me away each time she hits the red carpet, but I can only get excited about her red Louboutin’s with a gold toe cap and Bottega Veneta clutch.

Her The Row ensemble is very meh!!!

AnnaLynne McCord provided the sultry glamour I was expecting from Charlize, by posing seductively in a one-shouldered black gown.

Taraji P. Henson is wearing a really nice Rachel Roy dress, but it somehow feels out of place at this event.

I’m also not loving the hair extensions. She worked the shorter style really well.

What’s most tragic is the make-up. Why does she have a layer of white powder under her eyes?

Who Wore Camilla & Marc Better? AnnaLynne McCord, Lea Michele or Ashley Tisdale

90210 star AnnaLynne McCord was the first to wear this Camilla & Marc Lotus Frock tulle dress to “Nylon Magazine’s 2009 TV Issue Launch Party” back in August.

She paired her LBD with orange peep toe pumps, a leather belt and a neon zippered Rebecca Minkoff bag.

“Glee” actress Lea Michele kept her ‘Lotus Frock’ very simple, only adding black pumps and opting to go sans jewelry when she walked the red carpet at the “Fox Fall Eco-Casino Party” in West Hollywood.

Ashley Tisdale wore her dress to the Los Premios MTV Award last week with an Anna Vince ‘Dita’ corset patent belt and sassy leopard Louboutin heels.

I love all of them.

AnnaLynne for adding bright accessories.

Lea for letting the dress speak for itself, and Ashley for making her look sassy with those sexy heels.

Had AnnaLynne not worn the necklace I would have voted for her, but for her simple elegance I will give this win to Lea.

When you’re that beautiful, you don’t need blinding accessories plus the dress doesn’t need a belt.

This dress is available to purchase from Shopbop and Net-A-Porter.

Social Events Of The Week

MusiCares, Atlantic City

Nicky Hilton celebrated her 26th birthday this weekend in Atlantic City.

Before blowing out her candles, she walked the red carpet wearing a Christoper Kane for Topshop black dress.

The LBD has cut-out details, and is covered in grommets which appear on many of the pieces from the Christopher Kane for Topshop collection.

Taking a rare night off wearing her favourite Christian Louboutin Very Prive studded heels, she opted for a pair of Christian Louboutin Candy stud pumps.

“Make Time for CHANGE” campaign, New York

Jennifer Garner opted for a magenta RM by Roland Mouret Brise Noir dress, which is similar but not the same as dress which Cynthia Nixon wore on the Sex And The City set recently.

Surrogates LA, Premiere

Radha Mitchell’s body looks amazing in her one-sleeved Costume National Fall 2009 LBD.  She reminds me that I haven’t been to the gym in 3 weeks.

I love the texture of her dress and the pointy shoulders.

She pairs her dress with Swarovski jewelry and Casadei silver heels.

Elizabeth Banks’ Farah Angsana Fall 2009 silver dress is beautiful with it beaded cap sleeves and bow belt.

I love everything about this look including the bow heels, but I prefer Elizabeth Banks with lighter locks.

Maxim Celebrates Audrina Patridge’s October Cover, LA

Audrina Patridge also wore a dress from Farah Angsana’s Fall 2009 collection.

She looked flawless in her modified racy red mini dress, which she paired with a sparkling Daniel Swarovski clutch and Alexander McQueen strappy sandals.

Wonderbra By Dita Von Teese Launch, Milan

Dita von Teese is wearing the same style Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2009 dress which we saw on Christian Applegate earlier.

The difference is obviously the colour and Dita’s dress has polka dots on the blouse.

Macy’s Passport Gala 2009, LA

AnnaLynne McCord looked sexy wearing a nude Topshop one-sleeved dress with an embellished floral detail on the shoulder.

She wore her dress with purple suede pumps, a grey clutch and a selection of bangles.

Judith Leiber Rodeo Drive Store Opening, LA

Katie Cassidy continues to impress.

This time she wears an olive green Yigal Azrouel one-sleeved jersey dress, with blue Brian Atwood heels and of course a Judith Leiber clutch.

Also carrying a Judith Leiber clutch was Ginnifer Goodwin, who wore a navy Camilla & Marc Dylan trench coat as a dress, paired with Stella McCartney heels.

Opening of Renaissance NY Hotel 57, New York

Becki Newton also opted for Camilla & Marc for her red carpet appearance.

The ‘Ugly Betty’ actress wore a cute black and gold bustier dress with her favourite Jimmy Choo Karina studded shoe-boots, paired with a stack of gold bracelets.

Neutrogena Fresh Faces of Music, LA

I love Hayden Panettiere’s strapless fitted dress, but as we have seen many times before the dress is too tight around her bust.

Her look is completed with Sergio Rossi red snakeskin peep-toes, and a Christian Louboutin clutch.

Vanessa Hudgens wore a Camilla and Marc Aven nude leather dress, with silver heels.

Guests Arrive For Khloe Kardashian And Lamar Odom’s Wedding, LA

Only the publicity hungry Kardashian’s can turn a wedding into a red carpet event.

Kelly Osbourne who is apparently friendly enough with the Kardashian’s to be invited to Khloe’s wedding wore a black and white printed Preen Lightening dress, with black heels.

Adrienne Bailon looked stunning wearing an electric blue strapless BCBG Max Azria gown.

Brittny Gastineau arrived wearing a beautiful flowing maroon gown, whilst LaLa Vazquez opted for a very sexy Dolce & Gabbana ruched two-tone dress with Christian Louboutin Archidisco T-strap sandals

Variety’s 1st Annual Power of Women Luncheon

Anne Hathaway was the brightest star on this red carpet wearing a Lela Rose Spring 2010 sunshine yellow strapless dress with a folded detail on one side.

It’s a bold colour I wouldn’t have thought she would pick, but it works well for her.

Her look is paired with Roger Vivier pumps.

Christina Applegate looked very sophisticated in her green Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2009 belted dress, paired with nude strappy sandals and a nude clutch.

After her stunning Atelier Versace gown at the Emmy’s January Jones opted for ladylike chic at this event.

She wore an elegant black BCBG Max Azria dress to this event, with her glossy blonde hair swept to one side with a diamante headband to complete the look.

Olivia Wilde is wearing a black and white floral Kate Moss for Topshop dress and not a stitch of make-up.

Life’s just not fair.

AnnaLynne McCord should’ve saved this cute gold dress for the Teen Vogue Party.

Christina Aguilera made a rare red carpet appearance, but little appears to have changed.

Her LBD, Louboutin’s, and ruby red pout are pretty standard.

I remember a time when she had a new look every week.
