InStyle Magazine’s Summer Soiree

I don’t think I have ever said this before in reference to Ashlee Simpson, but I LOVE what she is wearing.

Usually her look has a “I Wannabe In The Band” type of vibe to it, but here she channels a very cute, feminine summery look that I just can’t get enough of.

Her strapless shimmering champagne coloured Jill Stuart playsuit is so chic, which she pairs with pearls, a white Dolce & Gabbana clutch and grey Brian Atwood heels.

For me the best dressed at this event.

Katie Cassidy wore a modified Balenciaga leopard print dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

I love the draping detail around the hips defining the waist, with her bold multi-coloured clutch and silver strappy heels. I’m really happy black pumps are not in this picture.

I don’t know who Yvonne Strahovski is, but I knew it only took me 2 seconds to fall in love with her cute ensemble.

Her Camilla & Marc Spring 2008 striped blazer with her ivory skirt and blood red shoes has a Ralph Lauren feel to it.

Love it.

Jessica Stroup shows a bit of her sassy side wearing a shortened black strapless Rachel Roy Fall 2009 dress with lace panels.

She paired her dress with Stella McCartney black heels and a matching Sergio Rossi clutch.

I’ve loving how her bob is constantly evolving. I can barely remember how she looked with longer hair.

Jessica is neck and neck with Ashley Greene as my favourite red carpet newbie this year.

I go back and forth with everyone who wears Herve Leger. I know many of you wish these bandages dresses were burned, but some do look great.

This isn’t one of those times. Eliza Dushku is a busty lady and this type of dress doesn’t flatter.

I preferred this Herve Leger armor-trim dress on the runway with one strap rather than two, but I do love the YSL tribute sandals which complement the dress well.

Eliza also carried a bright colourful clutch.

“Lost” actress Emilie de Ravin has been MIA from the red carpet for a long while, but she makes a spectacular return wearing a beautiful ivory lace Max Azria Fall 2009 mini dress.

The runway dress is styled have more of a tougher edge, but Emile’s fully lined version appears softer although she added a studded belt to prevent her look from being too sickly sweet.

Like Alexa Chung, Cat Deeley is flying the flag for us Brits in the US but her chic style is more to my liking.

Cat wore British brands via her a white crochet Jaeger dress paired with tan Mulberry sandals.

Our English rose glows so beautifully, with clean golden locks.

Jennifer Morrison opted for a strapless orange Sonia Rykiel dress with a folded neckline and a voluminous skirt.

I love the bright colour and the cute braided hairstyle.

She pairs her look with a Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.

Miranda Cosgrove has such an infectious smile it’s hard not to love her.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a Vena Cava Narthex tiered dress.

The brushstroke-print tiers on the bodice and hem adds a touch of colour to the cream sleeveless dress.

Dania Ramirez opted for a white Dolce & Gabbana trademark strapless bustier dress with a eyelet skirt and bright yellow heels.

Krysten Ritter wore red strappy sandals with her midnight blue Proenza Schouler quilted bustier dress.

The dress has a quilted silk charmeuse bustier with perfectly complements the voluminous pleated silk faille skirt.

Sanaa Lathan looked radiant wearing a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 hyacinth print chiffon one-shoulder dress.

Jordana Brewster’s Reem Acra Fall 2009 gold leaf jacquard halter dress with black belt, ensure she stood out amongst everyone else who opted for a more summery look.

Garcelle Beauvais opted for a full-length one-shouldered pale pink dress with a coral floral print.

She paired her dress with gold, a tan clutch and coral hooped earrings.

Maggie Grace is always so graceful.

I love her one-shouldered dress with a Dries van Noten Spring 2009-esqe mosaic print.

I’m really not keen on Shenae Grimes’ make-up, but her navy zipper trimmed Isabel Lu dress is cute.

Her look is paired with Miu Miu heels and a Kotour clutch.

Radha Mitchell wore a floaty floral vintage Cardinali dress and vintage KJL bangle from Decades Inc., paired with a Bottega Veneta clutch.

The white sunglasses and wedges add to the summery look she was going for.

Jessica Lucas wore a beautiful emerald one-shouldered Jay Godfrey Resort 2010 dress with a black waistband.

The “Melrose Place” actress accessorized with black pumps, a black clutch and a Swarovski bracelet.

The fashion roller coaster that is Lynn Collins takes another nose dive.

Although I do like the dress and the bright pink lips, the rest of the look feels alien the dress.

The hair is really granny-ifed and the Jeffrey Campbell Potion Ankle Boots – which are very similar to the Opening Ceremony boots – are very rock chick making this look too busy for me.

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.

Social Events Of The Week

I Love Gen Art: 15th Anniversary Benefit, New York

Whitney Port channeled a swinging 60s look wearing a gorgeous black sequined Pamella Roland Spring 2009 mini dress with silver sequined circles and bell sleeves.

The shoes really let her down, but everything else works for me.

Audi TDI Dinner, LA

Miranda Kerr stepped out with her beau Orlando Bloom looking very summery wearing a nude bandage dress from the Stella McCartney Spring 2009 collection, which complemented her nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Her look was complete with a crisp white blazer and a Prada lace bowler bag.

“Hung” Series Premiere, LA

I adore the vivid raspberry colour of Perrey Reeves’ silk one shoulder Reem Acra Resort 2009 dress which drapes so elegantly.

Jimmy Choo Flynn mirrored leather sandals complete this stunning look.

Anne Heche wore a black Paule Ka dress with a stunning silver necklace which really brought life to her look.

Black Jimmy Choo platforms completed her look.

Dsquared2 Menswear Show, Milan

Kelly Osbourne goes for a sophisticated look wearing a cobalt blue voluminous shift dress paired with studded Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

The star kept her punky blonde crop slicked down to complete the look.

AXE Instinct Power Of Leather Launch Party, New York

Ashlee Simpson she shows off her figure in a mirrored silver mini skirt teamed with a black sweetheart Ina Soltani bustier corset top and sexy gladiator heels.

“Tetro” Madrid Premiere

Without even trying Maribel Verdu oozes sexy sophistication in her LBD which she wears with YSL criss cross heels.

“Public Enemies” LA Premiere

This is not my favourite look for Rosario Dawson.

The Dries van Noten mosaic print dress is so shapeless and unflattering on her.

35th Annual Saturn Awards, LA

Kristen Bell’s dress has far too much going on with the fringe and the criss cross bolero.  This has to be one of her worst ever red carpet looks.

The CW Network 2009 Upfront

Blake Lively really makes me fall in love with her blue Adam silk double strap playsuit. It’s so cute, and sexy all at the same time.

Leg lengthening nude peep-toes, and a stack of bracelets complete the look.

Any other week she would be up for Best Dressed.

As would Jessica Stroup, in this equally cute and ultra-girly, Brian Reyes spaghetti strapped chiffon dress.

The dress has a layered silk chiffon skirt with frayed edges, and a contrast waist band.

I love her hair loosely pull back, in this summery youthful look.

Sergio Rossi clutch and Dolce & Gabbana champagne peep-toes, complete the look.

I like the long Jil Sander Spring 2009 blazer with shorts combo, but I can’t take Leighton Meester’s two-tone hair.

Is this hair colour for a role she is playing?

Because I refuse to believe she just wanted it this way.

Elle Macpherson shows off that body, which made her so famous, wearing a black strapless pencil dress, from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2009 collection.

So Tyra Banks can tone down her look.

The TV presenter wore a slate grey Marley silk wrap jumpsuit, with a matching necklace, and a contrast elasticated belt.

On trend nude heels completed the look.

I prefer her as a honey blonde. Do you guys like this darker ‘do?

I have always envied Jessica Szohr’s luscious thick hair.

The Gossip Girl actress, wore a blue off-the-shoulder Rebecca Taylor Spring 2009 dress with studded details, which matched with covetable silver sandals.

Va va va voom. AnnaLynne McCord is purring in her Dolce & Gabbana satin bustier dress.

This kind of dress would have surely got her noticed, as it accentuate her femme curves.

She kept it super sexy with strappy sandals.

Taylor Momsen is such a pretty girl, I wish she wore opt for much softer make-up.

She still channeling biker/rock girl chic, wearing a leather look plus a floral Rag & Bone silk tank and strappy sandals.

Ashlee Simpson channels funky secretary chic, with her 2 in 1 black and white combo dress.

A large necklace and black and pink Lanvin patent pumps with pink bow details complete the look.

2009 MTV Australia Awards

I will guess some of you won’t like that Lara Bingle wore a head-to-necklace-to-clutch-to-toe Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 look.

I agree she could have broken it up a little, but I do love this purple and orange striped sweater with gold mini-skirt, and Spicy heels look. She really stood out at this event.

She was so chic, and perfectly co-ordinated.

I love Dannii Minogue’s warrior princess look, with the silver embellished fingerless PVC gloves.

I would have preferred a pair of really fierce gladiators, or edgy Nicholas Kirkwood-type heels with her silver J’Aton Couture dress.

The black peep-toes Louboutin’s are such a safe choice, for such an edgy futuristic couture dress.

Red carpet host Audrina Patridge, arrived wearing a black strapless Valentino Red dress, with Balmain Crystal embellished studded sandals.

She later changed before entering the press room. On this occasion she sparkled in a gold paillette covered Alberto Makali dress.

MTV presenter Ruby Rose, rolled out the carpet from the back of her dress to kick start this event.

Her actual dress was a gold mini dress, as seen above with Audrina.

Ruby’s hair is identical to the look Rihanna sported to the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards.

I was worried Australian designer Collette Dinnigan wasn’t going to be represented on the red carpet, until I saw Jessica Mauboy arrive wearing a Fall 2009 sheer mini dress, with embroidered lace details, and an embellished skirt.

The singers look was complete with YSL trib two’s, and a silver Prada paillette clutch.

I’m really not fond of Delta Goodrem’s hair extensions, because they’re too obvious. A layered look would have graduated her hair to be less conspicuous.

Any way onto the dress. Delta wore a forest green and brown maxi by Australian designer Alex Perry. The maxi looks very elegant on her tall and slender frame.

Duffy really should have saved this look for an art gallery opening or something equally less rock n’ roll.

What happen to her?

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz wear matching black looks.

2008 MTV Music Awards Red Carpet – Best Dressed

Best Group Award
Finally the Pussycat Dolls get it oh so right.

I love the soft neutral colours of both the dresses and make-up. Such a refreshing change from the S&M gear they usually wear.

Melody Thornton kind of upsets the balance for me in her 3 piece suit, but the other 4 are perfection.

Best Comeback/Most Improved Extensions Award
I knew she could do it. Britney Spears made a massive comeback last night collecting 3 awards for a blah song and a so so video, but what impressed me most is that she more than pulled her sh*t together.

Her extensions look like they weren’t purchased from Jessica Simpson’s HairDo line.

The shorten Atelier Versace Fall 2008 silver beaded dress was gorgeous, and reminded me of Britney of old.

Welcome back Brit Brit.

Best Glow Award
Ashlee Simpson is rumoured to be carrying twins, which apparently is the new thing in celebrity childbirth.

The red head took to the red carpet in a black draped empire-lined Alexander McQueen Fall 2008 gown, with a stunning train.

The dress has a mixture of Gothic chic and feminine elegance that looks so right on Mrs Wentz.

Best Mini Award
Ashlee Tisdale provided the little sparkly dress wearing a Roberto Cavalli strapless mini which was covered in white paillettes.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Hair Award
Pink’s red and navy stripped Alexis Lamontagna Fall 2008 gown strapless gown, was stunning. I really fell in love with it.

I think the dress suited Pink, but I just did not like her hair.

Best Legs Award
Ciara showed off plenty of leg in her metallic Dolce & Gabbana dress, which she wore with Louboutin shoes, Jimmy Choo starred patent clutch.

Best Ass Award
Hurley brand ambassador and face of the line’s new fall campaign, Bar Refaeli attended the show wearing a grey cotton tank dress custom-made for the model by Hurley. The dress did well to show off her best asset.

Bar kept her look on trend for fall by adding piles of statement jewels by Badgley Mischka.

Best Strapless Award
Nothing makes you feel young, cute and girly like a Bestey Johnson dress. And that is exactly how Jordin Sparks looked.

You Did Not Suck Award
Lauren Conrad is not my favourite person, but give credit were credit is due, she did look gorgeous in this white dress by Pogah Couture. I especially love the skirt of this dress.

She completed her look with silver Sergio Rossi heels, and a silver Kara Ross clutch.

Most Fashion Forward Award
Rihanna wore a black bustier with a Peter Pilotto Fall 2008 print shield skirt in vibrant green/yellow.

The skirt is the show stopper, as it is has a very futuristic feel to it.

She completes her edgy look, with a pair of white platformed t-bar heels.

Cute Shoes/Clutch/Nails Combo
The dress Victoria Justice is adorable, but how cute is she to have matched her shoes, clutch and nail colour? So cute.

Golden Girl Award
Audrina Patridge gold and peachy dress was suited to her golden tan. She wore her dress with a gold vintage clutch by Daniel Swarovski.

Best Theme Award
Katy Perry channeled Wonder Wonder. So cute.

Best Rock Chick Award
I love rock chicks in dainty dresses. Hayley Williams of Paramore wore a green Topshop vintage inspired dress, with a cute bow tie, torn tight and rubber platforms.

2008 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards – Best Dressed


Best Californian Girl Award
Cameron Diaz arrived on the orange carpet wearing a white shrug over her strapless Missoni Spring 2008 dress and Christian Louboutin Passmule Patent Sandals in white.

Best Dress/Shoes Combo Award
Even though I am not a fan of grey, I do like Ashlee Simpson’s Alexander McQueen strapless belted dress, mostly because she offset the dull grey with a bright orange pair of Christian Louboutin Passmule Patent Sandals.

I love her Chanel cuff bracelet.

Most Improved Award
From wearing a baby’s outfit with a dummy at the MTV Music Awards, to wearing this embellished Betsey Johnson Spring 2008 strapless hot pink, black trimmed taffeta and tulle dress, Lil Mama has come a long way.

Most Colourful/Best Smile Award
I just love the colourful design on Brenda Song’s dress.

Best Shoes Award
I was just about to put Jordin Sparks in the worst category for those red streaks in her hair when I spotted her Giuseppe Zanotti Architectural Wedge Sandal’s. I have been wanting these sandals forever, but can never find them in my size.

Do I need these sandal’s when I am already 5ft 11ins? No.

Do I still want them? Yes.

Would I be able to walk in them? Probably not.

Jordin is wearing a red strapless dress from Diane von Furstenberg.

Most Improved Posing Award
Miley Cyrus decided against her ‘Playboy bunny’ pouting, which she thought was a good look for the Oscars. She was wrong.

On this occasion she turned down the hooch and looked cute in this black embellished Stella McCartney Rhinestone paillette mini dress. She completed her look with a pair of red satin ABS peep toes.

Golden Girl Award
America Ferrera is glowing in this David Meister gold dress, matched with a gold clutch and gold wedges.

Best Dressed Under 15 Award
No hair extensions, no make-up, no nail varnish, no mini dresses. Abigail Breslin is age appropriate. Something that does not always apply to Miley Cyrus.
