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.

7th Annual Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party

Katie Cassidy was the only one who really impressed me at this event.

Jessica Stroup’s ‘Best Red Carpet Newcomber of 2009′ title is being strongly contested by this girl.

Katie was by far the best dress of the night wearing a watermelon Paule Ka Spring 2009 skirt with tulip bubble details, which she paired with a purple bustier trimmed with lace.

As always the pumps don’t really work for me, but everything else – including her Louis Vuitton Motard satin clutch – is perfection.

Noot Seear opted for an edgier/laidback look wearing a Phi Fall 2009 leather skirt with an asymmetrical exposed zipper and a white tank.

I really dislike the shoes with this look.

Editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue Amy Astley, arrived at this D&G sponsored party wearing a grape D&G Fall 2009 top with voluminous sleeves, paired with navy pants.

Kelly Osbourne’s D&G black satin dress was covered with black and white shamrock appliqués on the sleeves to make the dress more interesting.

“Dancing With the Stars” is paying off. She looks amazing.

Victoria Justice looks so grown up, but not too old in her poppy red BCBG Max Azria sleeveless shift dress.

The dress is covered with hundreds of red paillette’s which matches her ruby lips.

Naturi Naughton didn’t go all out this time.

Instead wearing a simple one-shouldered jersey dress, but add a bit of drama to her look opting for a large jeweled belt.

Chelsea Staub’s canary yellow dress would have stood out on the red carpet.

I love the gold detailed neckline on her BCBG Max Azria dress.

I love Miranda Cosgrove’s floaty ribbon print D&G dress.

It’s nice, but not too cutesy.

It very much suits her style and personality.

I feel a bit disappointed by AnnaLynne McCord’s look.

I expected her to be in the same league as Katie, but I’m really unimpressed by this look.

Jessica Lowndes wore a cute strapless dress with a sequined bodice plus a black and white skirt.

I feel like I see this look on Jessica quite a bit.  I love her to try something new.

Lily Collins opted for a black D&G strapless dress.

Selena Gomez wore a silky black and grey ensemble.

Ashley Tisdale wore a Kate Moss for Topshop Trophy studded dress, which draped low enough to expose her bra through the sheer part of the dress.

Her dress was paired with Christian Louboutin snake skin heels.

Jesscia Stroup opted for a black BCBG Max Azria jumpsuit paired with a green clutch and black open-toe booties.

Who Wore Kimberly Ovitz Better? AnnaLynne McCord or Olivia Wilde

When it comes to this long-sleeved Kimberly Ovitz body con dress, it’s all about with back cut-outs details which is why both AnnaLynne McCord or Olivia Wilde showed off the back of the dress whilst posing on the red carpet.

AnnaLynne McCord brought some serious Va Va Voom on the red carpet when she attended the 8th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in LA back in June.

Her black Kimberly Ovitz pencil sheath dress was business in the front, but party in the back. The actress completed her femme fatale look with an elegant updo and pointy black patent pumps.

Olivia Wilde arrived on the red carpet of the 2009 FOX All-Star Party wearing the same sizzling LBD which she accessorized with camel Jimmy Choo “Seattle” sandals.

She also sported an updo to show off the back of her dress.

For me this is all about AnnaLynne. She’s oozing from every pore and she looks like she’s having a lot of fun wearing this LBD.

You can purchase this Kimberly Ovitz Martin jersey cutout dress from Net-A-Porter’s international site for £455/€558.37.

Social Events Of The Week

“Answer The Call” Charity Concert – Press Conference, New York

Beyonce Knowles looks cute and fresh faced in her all black ensemble, which includes a 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2009 zipper skirt.

I think she could have worked this look without the belt.

“Funny People” Madrid Photocall

After Leslie Mann’s previous red carpet appearance wearing a dark olive Marni dress, she lighten things up for this photocall wearing a floaty and playful Jason Wu Resort 2010 mini chiffon dress.

What a way to get back on track.

The actress paired tan sandals to match her tan belt.

The NASDAQ Closing Bell, New York

Amber Valletta enviably tall and slender frame mean she can pull off difficult shapes with ease, hence being a supermodel.

I love her colour blocked combination of her blue silk Jenni Kayne roll sleeve tank paired with Jenni Kayne black high waisted pants.

That blue is just drawing me in like a magnet.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

I’m always rooting for Rumer Willis.   She often lets me down, but not on this occasion.

Her white Zac Posen cut-out dress was quite sophisticated and she looks really comfortable for a change.

She seems to be favouring Zac Posen at the moment, as this is the second dress she has worn by the designer in consecutive red carpet appearances.

Her look was paired with Sergio Rossi Marisa pumps, which also have a side cut-out detail.

NIKE And The CW Celebrate The Launch of Season 2 of “90210”, LA

All can I say about AnnaLynne McCord’s look is WHY?

This is not the AnnaLynne I know and love.

Jessica Lowndes gives us a pop of colour with bubblegum pink lipstick.

The Hollywood staple ankle boots and a little black lace dress complete the look.

“The Descent Part 2″ Premiere, London

Actress Shauna Macdonald attended her “The Descent Part 2″ premiere in London this week.

I’m the only one slight freak out by the fact that Shauna Macdonald – who is 7 months pregnant – is wearing a bandage dress?

Is that even safe? *winces*

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?

Social Events Of The Weekend

Svedka Adult Playground Presents Brent Bolthouse Photography Exhibit, LA

I said to myself last week that Kim Kardashian’s lighter locks would grow on me, but it hasn’t yet. I still really dislike the look.

At this event she wore an Alexander Wang denim corset top with a black mini skirt, oversized blazer and black pumps.

Like the look, hate the hair.

Nicky Hilton is getting a lot of wear out of her Christian Louboutin Very Prive studded peep-toe pumps which she pairs with a cute floral Topshop dress.

Rumor Willis Celebrates Her 21st Birthday at TAO, Las Vegas

For once I don’t hate Rumer Willis look – although I’m not crazy about her shoe choice – but I love her silver mini sparkling Toni Maticevski dress.

I was confident if she dyed her hair back to its original dark colour this would improve her overall look, and it shows here.

Audrina Patridge helped celebrate Rumer’s 21st birthday.

She arrived wearing a micro LBD from Alice + Olivia like only she can, with predictable black peep-toes.

Catalyst at Terranea Resort, LA

AnnaLynne McCord paired a pink layered tank with black pants and sexy black t-bar heels with gold trims.

Camille Guaty looked really cute wearing a ultra girlie Jill Stuart strapless floral dress which she accessorized with a chunky gold necklace and gold strappy Jimmy Choo sandals.

It looks like Victoria Beckham isn’t the only ex-Spice Girl to become stale.

Melanie Brown is wearing a Herve Leger dress which Sophia Bush and Leona Lewis wore a year ago with snake-skin Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

The TAG Heuer Cocktail Reception, Toronto

With a blue and grey sleeved Thuy Fall 2009 dress, Maria Sharapova wore her favourite Coe Haan heels whilst carrying a gold clutch.

Boa Restuarant, LA

Even off the red carpet Amanda Bynes still opts for LBDs to go dinner with friends.

The fact that both her heels and clutch are not black, is a step in the right direction.

Playhouse nightclub, Las Vegas

Aubrey O’Day wore a multi-coloured striped Herve Leger Fall 2008 dress with ivory Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

I do like her dress mostly because of the colour, but also because she’s not spilling out of it.

CBS, CW And Showtime All-Star Party

My second “Oh No She Didn’t” of the week goes to Jenna Elfman who channeled her inner Charlize Theron, wearing the same gold metallic Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress which Charlize wore to the “The Burning Plain” Paris Premiere back in March.

I like the dress but I don’t feel Jenna did it any justice mostly because she opted out of the black belt which gives the dress more shape.

Jenna’s dress just hangs around her middle like a sack.

Jessica Stroup is probably the only young actress who always seems to get it so right on the red carpet. She’s never faltered.

I adore her cute ensemble which includes a Stella McCartney sleeveless top, Catherine Malandrino black shorts and Stella McCartney gold trim platform pumps.

I’m loving the new bob.  It really suits her.

Annalynne McCord makes it a 3peat for this Alice + Olivia black and white strapless dress.

Amber Tamblyn and Khloe Kardashian have worn this dress already.

This dress is a huge step away from the slinky body-con dresses we are used to seeing Annalynne wear.  I’m not really feeling this look at all on her.

Sophia Bush’s floral dress gives me a warm fuzzy feeling of Autumn day when the leaves are falling off the trees, whilst the sun is shining on a beautiful day.

The whole look has a 40s vibe to it with the hair, the bold red lips and the dress.  Dita would love it.

I do like Shenae Grimes’ pink Camilla & Marc bustier dress, but it’s quite ironic that she fails to fill the dress.

As a result the dress doesn’t really flatter her which is disappointing as the colour is divine on her.

Jennifer Love Hewitt opt for an ice white strapless dress with a tie on the hip, but I’m more drawn to her stunning nude peep-toes with a cute bow detail.

Ashlee Simpson continues to channel her inner rock chick wearing this grey tweed dress with a lot of added leather and chiffon detail which mixes sweet with sassy.

Her look is paired with a black clutch and Balenciaga heels.

Elle Macpherson never met a Herve Leger dress she didn’t like.

This is two events in a row she has opted for a bandage dress.
