“Avatar” LA Premiere

Do you hear that?

That’s that sound of another ball being knocked out of the fashion ball park by Zoe Saldana.

I’m love her Versace Spring 2010 mini chain dress more than the runway version.

The white feels more modern in comparison, plus her dress fits her better than the model.

I like that she opted for Brian Atwood gold “Maniac” pumps, instead of the Spring 2010 Versace heels which are Shakira’s current obsession.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. What a fantastic year she’s having.

Audrina Patridge was my second favourite on this red carpet.

Her sea green Rue du Mail Spring 2010 ensemble is very sophisticated for The Hills star and I especially love the yellow Prada clutch and Alexander McQueen silver heels she paired with this look.

I must say I’m shocked that Audrina is channeling this brand, but she totally rocks it.

Michelle Rodriguez’ hair is way out of control for my liking, but the fact that she’s wearing a pretty Ina Soltani gown which looks gorgeous against her olive skin is enough for me.

Baby steps.

Sigourney Weaver walked the red carpet wearing a stunning black sequin wrap dress with white strappy sandals.

She used to occasion to promote her Life magazine cover.

So very elegant.

I make that two for two for Leona Lewis.

This is a hopeful sign that her corset days are firmly behind her.

This heavily embellished silver gown is very Beyonce circa 2004, but I like it.

US Weekly’s Hot Hollywood 2009

I’m not so crazy about Kristin Cavallari’s hair and make-up, but I did like her ensemble.

‘The Hills’ star wore a black Dolce & Gabbana bustier paired with a Chanel belt and a 3.1 Phillip Lim zipper skirt from the Spring 2009 collection.

Stephanie Pratt sparkled wearing a blue sequined French Connection dress which makes her baby blues pop.

She paired her stunning dress with a navy blue clutch and YSL Trib Two’s.

This has to be one of Stephanie’s best red carpet looks. She really stepping things and becoming more polished.

After a few red carpet appearance sans tights Leona Lewis wears them on this occasion.

The star opted for a colourful sequined Catherine Malandrino skirt which she paired with a black top and Vivienne Westwood lilac Lady Dragon heart slingbacks.

I’m not at all fond of this look and its the top that’s at fault.

Everything else feels so well thought out, but the top feels like it was thrown on at the last minute.

After a summer flirtation with being blonde, Audrina Patridge returns to her luscious brunette locks.

The reality tv star wore a silver Rachel Roy dress and grey YSL Trib Two slingback heels.

I love the way the pockets drape which adds plenty of flair to this Rachel Rachel Roy number.

She look so beautiful.

Monique Coleman opted for a bold chartreuse colour which she loved showing off on this red carpet.

Whitney Port still hasn’t worn her Whitney Eve Spring 2010 collection.  Maybe she’s just waiting for Spring to arrive before she starts wearing it.

Instead she wore a delicate vintage dress paired with Guiseppe Zanotti gold heels to this event.

Like Stephanie, Karina Smirnoff also wore a French Connection dress, but hers was classic black with a asymmetrical front ruffle to add a bit of flair.

What I love most about this look is Karina’s Miu Miu heels which are to die for.

2009 Los Premios MTV Latin America Awards

Nelly Furtado was front row at Elie Saab’s recent Spring 2010 presentation in Paris.

She was obviously shopping for this event as she walked the red carpet wearing a beige Elie Saab Spring 2010 studded panel dress.

I loved the dress on the runway, but I would’ve loved Nelly’s look had she worn the runway leather strappy heels.

Alessandra Ambrosio this Balmain Fall 2008 dress was amazing the first time we saw it on Selita Ebanks.

We’ve since seen it on LaToya Luckett and Cheryl Cole.

I for one am so over this dress, that I can’t even appreciate how spectacular you look in it.

Sorry but there are a million and one other mini dresses you could have chosen to wow us in.

Ashley Tisdale seems to have changed direction from the rock chick look she was channeling for a while, back to wearing cute dresses again.

On this red carpet she wore a black twill and tulle Camilla & Marc Lotus dress.

She added a patent belt to add more texture to her cute mini dress, and her leopard print Louboutin heels hinted at her wild side.

Audrina Patridge showed off her tattooed back wearing a black backless mini Oday Shakar sparkling dress which she paired with Lanvin thigh-high boots.

Call me crazy, but I like this look.

Not many could get away with this look.

Many of you say that Taylor Swift always wears embellished dresses on the red carpet, and I would say the same for Miranda Cosgrove.

These shapeless embellished dresses she loves to wear on the red carpet, are all started to feel a bit samey.

Here she wears a Elise Overland dress, paired with Guiseppe Zanotti heels.

Paulina Rubio wore an Ina Soltani LBD accented with rosettes.

The dress is cute, but the black and silver ankle boots just ruin the look for me.

Kelly Rowland’s dress looks like a Bebe knock-off dress.

The only redeeming quality it has is making her legs look long and lean.

Kelly Osbourne was the surprise on this red carpet.

The UK TV star wore a plum mini D&G dress with voluminous skirt and shoulders, paired with a stunning glass Swarovski necklace and a sparkling Swarovski purple crystal clutch.

For some reason Selena Gomez didn’t walk the red carpet, but she was spotted backstage wearing a Paule Ka nude strapless dress with a sheer nude floor-length overlay.

“Sorority Row” LA Premiere

My first thought was there’s a lot of black at this premiere.

But considering 2 funerals took place in LA yesterday, I think it’s fitting that some of the stars wore black as a mark of respect.

Rumer was a shoe in for Best Dressed this week with her Zac Posen dress, but her Stella McCartney ensemble has trumped that look.

I have been rooting for Rumer for a very long while, and for the second time she gives me red carpet head-to-toe perfection.

The lace jacket hints at nudity without being tacky, whilst the black pants completes the sleek silhouette.

Her deep brunette hair is swept to the side, with jewels kept to a minimum.

If you are feeling a touch of de ja vu with this look, it’s because Stella McCartney wore the jumpsuit version of this lace look to the 2009 Costume Institute Gala.

For once Rumer isn’t upstage by her mother…

…who btw looked stunning wearing a black Oscar de la Renta Resort 2010 dress with black satin Brian Atwood pumps.

Demi Moore’s dress had a large rosette detail on the neckline, from which large ruffles cascade down the front of her dress.

So ladylike, so chic, so Demi, so glad she wore the runway belt. I’m not sure the dress would’ve worked without it.

Audrina Patridge has walked the red carpet a few times without her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch, but it was back last night.

The actress wore a black strapless textured See by Chloe dress, with a tie to the waist and a tulip skirt, with Alexander McQueen strappy sandals.

I know blondes are meant to have more fun, but I hope Audrina returns to the darker locks soon.  The blonde was cute a first, but it’s starting to lose it’s original spark.

Jamie Chung looked sassy wearing a rubbery LBD by Giorgio Armani paired with Brian Atwood heels.

The dress is interesting with those sharp details cascading from the shoulder, but what I love here is her flawless make-up.

Margo Harshman opted for a creamy Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 strapless gown.

I love the ruched bodice and the gold band on the empire-waist, she really looks so elegant in this stunning gown.

A gold clutch and her hair swept up completes this beautiful look.

I didn’t expect to see this ivory Miu Miu Spring 2008 mini dress on the red carpet again, but Jasmine Dustin gave it another outing.

It’s still such a stunning dress, but it really deserved better shoes.

Whilst everyone opted for something youthful, I think the black satin gown Briana Evigan wore was a bit of a safe option.

Caroline D’Amore wore a sexy Dolce & Gabbana trademark strapless bustier dress with a eyelet skirt.

She paired her dress with silver strappy Jimmy Choo’s and a matching clutch.

TV personality Casey Reinhardt wore a Alice + Olivia taupe dress with leg lengthening nude heels.

Sorority Row hits theaters across the US next Friday, September 11, but in the UK it comes out on September 9.

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.

Who Wore Zuhair Murad Better? Hayden Panettiere or Audrina Patridge

Do you think Hayden Panettiere chuckled when she saw Audrina Patridge wearing the same ruched Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 strapless dress she’d previous worn last night at the Teen Choice Awards?

Hayden wore the dress to a party during Comic Con with black Louboutin heels and carried a shimmering clutch.

Audrina Patridge teamed her dress with a matching crocodile clutch and turquoise Courtney Crawford heels.

Both ladies look great, but I’ll give this win to Audrina because I love her heels and her beaded necklace which makes the look more interesting.
