Runway To X Factor Italy – Asia Argento In Sophia Kokosalaki

I have been talking about the X Factor a lot since it started 3 weeks ago here in the UK, but Italy also have their own version.

The gorgeous Asia Argento who you may remember was one of the judges during Cannes Film Festival this year, was also a judge on the Italian X Factor this week.

During Cannes she wore a lot of Armani’s Privé gowns, but on the X Factor she looked outstanding wearing a black and gold Sophia Kokosalaki Fall 2009 mini dress, with glossy black leggings and black booties.

I love Sophia Kokosalaki’s work, so I’m happy that she is getting a lot of celebrity love at the moment.

Rinko Kikuchi recently wore a very similar gold and black dress to the 22nd Tokyo International Film Festival Opening Ceremony.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky” Premiere

Much better.

I hadn’t been a fan of Kerry Washington’s two previous looks, but she sure knows how to make me fall in love again.

She arrived on the red carpet wearing a flesh coloured Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 gown, covered in navy blue floral embellishments and a velvet navy ribbon.

We’ve seen this silhouette a lot at Cannes, but her floor-sweeping fishtail tulle train added to the overall glamour of the look.

Her bouffant was bouncy with beautiful tumbling curls, whilst her make-up kept light.

Myleene Klass wore a very similar version of this gown last week.

Charlotte Gainsbourg won the best actress prize at the Cannes Film Festival last night for her role as a grieving mother in the film ‘Antichrist’.

She arrived at this premiere with her husband wearing a gold studded Balenciaga Resort 2009 shortened dress, which she wore with black strappy Balenciaga heels.

I love her carefree approach to fashion.

Asia Argento has had a fantastic run on the red carpet at Cannes, and it seems her preferred collections were from Roberto Cavalli and Armani Privé.

She picked another outstanding Armani Privé Spring 2009 gown for this premiere.

It had a sculptural detail on the shoulder and the skirt, which then trails off into a stunning train.

Her heels compliment the gown, and I love the print which lines inside of this magnificent gown.

Georgina Chapman wore a satin-faced silk organza dress from her Marchesa Spring 2009 collection, which is architecturally pleated to dramatic effect but it looks slightly flat whilst standing so close too her husband.

Satin Louboutin’s complete the look.

Isabelle Huppert and Asia, will have to fight it out for the honour of ‘Queen of Couture’ at this years Cannes Film Festival. Both have worn such magnificent pieces.

Isabelle has worn some cutting edge and risqué pieces, but on this occasion she opted for a Spring 2009 Chanel Couture gown which was so elegant, delicate, and sophisticated.

Zhang Ziyi looked like a fairytale princess in this wonderful blush pink paillette covered gown, which was cut very low at the back.

Her gown was paired with a silver clutch, and she may have been inspired Paris Hilton as she wore a jeweled hair accessory.

When I saw Robin Wright Penn wearing this shimmering sheer black gown, the first person to come to mind was Sharon Stone.

That’s not a good thing.

Shu Qi’s blue one-shouldered Roberto Cavalli gown was embellished around waist, and on the shoulder strap with black crystals.

Her sapphire blue earrings and ring, complimented her gown beautifully.

Anna Mouglalis wore an eye-catching green satin gown, with an exaggerating bow, as she smoldered for the cameras.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Vincere” Premiere

Isabelle Huppert continues to look great on the red carpet.

Her look is authoritative – as the head judge – yet still feminine and ultra sophisticated, case in point her Armani Prive Spring 2009 black skirt suit.

I love the structured details.

Asia Argento is a very sexy woman, which shines through in her black Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009.

Robin Wright Penn created a sensation, as she oozed glamour in her midnight blue shimmering gown.

Simple drop earrings completed the look.

Valeria Solarino opted for a kaleidoscope of colours, wearing a Roberto Cavalli printed silk gown.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – The Chopard Trophy

British TV presenter Myleene Klass maybe the least known at this event, but she was by far the best dressed, wearing a nude strapless Jasper Conran Fall 2009 dress, with a organza floral detail on the skirt.

After Kirsty Gallacher let me down last week, Myleene is fast becoming my favourite Brit on the red carpet.

Nude Louboutin’s complete the look.

Peaches Geldof scrubs up well when she puts in the effort.

On this occasion she wore a white Paule Ka Fall 2009 bustier gown, with a black bow belt, which had white stitching.

She could have opted for different shoes from her previous party, but all in all, another good look for her, minus the tattoos.

Red Casadei heels, and an embellished Bulgari clutch complete the look.

Asia Argento shows off her Chopard bling, whilst wearing a black elegant Chanel gown.

Eva Herzigova wore a black strapless Roberto Cavalli dress which had cut-out details on the bodice, and a tulle poufy skirt, with Giuseppe Zanotti Special Edition crystal strap sandals in black.

She wore the silver version to the Costume Institute Gala.

Marion Cotillard’s look is simply elegant, but at the same time a little boring in this Lanvin strapless dress.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “UP” Premiere

Tonight was definitely a night for couture gowns, and this is why I love Cannes Film Festival.

Elizabeth Banks looks outstanding wearing a one-shouldered Armani Privé Spring 2009 red gown.

She gives this gown an old Hollywood feel with the marcel waves, and the long flowing train.

Normally mounds of material attached to a gown icks me, this time I like it, and Elizabeth shows of the gown so perfectly.

Best Dressed of the Week is going to be tough.

I know many of you will hate the maroon Haider Ackermann Fall 2009 ensemble Tilda Swinton is wearing, but I love it, especially the colour and that gorgeous silhouette it gives her.

She’s like a gazelle, so interesting to look at, and so elegantly statuesque.

Tilda usually works with designers directly, so it wouldn’t be a surprised if they worked together on this modified look.

Isabelle Huppert may have been the most casual at the photocall earlier in the day, but tonight she looked very glamourous wearing a nude Armani Privé Spring 2009 gown, with an embroidered overlay, which was embellished with jewels.

She kept her neck bare, but she did accessorize with silver bracelets.

Robin Penn Wright continues her red carpet run without a hint of black.

This platinum silver metallic Elie Saab Fall 2007 Couture off-the-shoulder draped gown is divine.

I see her getting better and better.

Asia Argento wore a Armani Privé Spring 2009 Asian print strapless bell-shaped gown.

For me Asia struggles to pull this look off. I don’t like her hair with this gown, and the runway shoes look much better on the runway.

Model Eugenia Silva looks gorgeous in her black and grey checked Armani Privé Spring 2008 gown, with a rise and fall hem.

I’m not particularly crazy about this gown, because Milla Jovovich wore a modified version of this gown to the same festival last year, so I feel like I have seen it before.

From the top of her updo, to the hem of her Alberta Ferretti gown, Alessia Piovan is total perfection.

She has such elegance, the petrol blue is striking, and those earrings are divine.

Aishwarya Rai, like Elizabeth Banks, wore a gown with stunning train.

The Indian actress glowed in her white strapless Roberto Cavalli gown with a ruffled tiered skirt.

I’m not crazy about her hair style, but I do like her red bejewled Swarovski box clutch, and those pearl drop earrings.

I had high hopes for Shu Qi, but this teal strapless Roberto Cavalli gown is a tad boring compared to the others.
