NYLON Magazine’s Young Hollywood Issue Party

I’m wondering if Rumer Willis has a new stylist, because she seems to have changed her style direction, plus she is wearing British designers lately.

She has worn a few pieced from Todd Lynn, and on this occasion she’s wore a black jagged edge Nathan Jenden Sandra strapless dress, with black Christian Louboutin Paquita gladiators.

I love that she’s trying out new designers, and not following what the rest of young Hollywood is wearing, but she needs to figure out what hairstyle works best for her, because this wavy style is really messy, and spoils her overall look, which is a huge shame.

Sophia Bush keeps it casual in a simple tank, jeans, trib two’s and black jeans. She makes her look interesting with a strappy belt.

I love how she is growing out her hair.

With gorgeous nude lips, and black strappy sandals, Amber Stevens wore a bandeau dress, with stripes and roses from Topshop.

Such a cute look.

Audrina Patridge wears a very sheer Kain Label crop top, with a yellow 3.1 Phillip Lim skirt, we’ve seen her wear before, her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch, and Balmain Crystal embellished studded sandals.

I’m seeing a lot of those cropped tops in stores at the moment.

I love Kat Dennings, I think she’s an awesome actress, but I can’t get over her make-up here.

I love this vibrant green colour of Kristin Cavallari strapless dress, the draping is also impressive, but those shoes……

Stephanie Pratt is definitely ready for summer in her white and aqua Bebe tiered ruffle dip dye dress, which she wears with white peep-toe Louboutin’s.

Lo Bosworth’s look is all black with tan accessories to warm up her look.

PaleyFest09 Presentation Of "The Hills"

I must say I’m starting to really dig Lauren Conrad’s style. Her red carpet looks have never blown me away, but this citronella 3.1 Phillip Lim tiered ruffle tank dress, is gorgeous.

Her tan accessories really perfect this look, and her lighter hair and nude tinted lips gives her a subtle glow.

After her grossly over prices collection has been put on hold, Lauren Conrad is now producing a range for discount department store Kohl’s. Some people are just born lucky.

Audrina Patridge wears a wide waist belt to nip in the waist of her Stella McCartney blue/grey one-shoulder dress, which she wears with her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch.

She gets plus points for everything apart from the hair. I love her as a brunette, and I’m just not in love with those highlights.

Whitney Port wore a typical Whitney-style boho inspired maxi.

I love the draped bodice and her honey-coloured hair.

Lo Bosworth would have got the thumbs up for this look, had it not been for the clutch.

Her jewel tone sapphire blue skirt, and turquoise top are a perfect combination, but that cyan coloured clutch clashes with the rest of 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.

"I Love You, Man" LA Premiere

There seems to be a lot of re-runs on the red carpet lately.

Elizabeth Banks is wearing the same Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 embroidered dress, we saw on Milla Jovovich recently.

I am usually a fan of Elizabeth’s choices, but this dress doesn’t work for her at all. Maybe it’s her hairstyle that is going against the dress, but this look gets a thumbs down.

Rashida Jones would have had to wear Bridget Jones style pants with her black Azzedine Alaia dress.

The lace inserts all over her dress, were enough to show Rashida that a v-string just wouldn’t have been a good idea.

Her look is complete with Manolo Blahnik Pepe sandals.

Jaime Pressly is smokin’ hot. She loves to mix up her look a lot. Sometimes it’s jeans and a blouse, other times it’s the ladies who lunch look, but on this occasion – hot temptress.

Her legs are elongated wearing a black mini Badgley Mischka sparkling dress, which she wears with Jimmy Choo Private strappy sandals.

Audrina Patridge loves strapless dresses, so this navy Whitley Kros dress is not a surprisingly look for her.

She wore her dress with embellished Giuseppe Zanotti booties, and a black patent Alexander McQueen bow-shaped clutch.

I’m really loving the chestnut brown hair colour. It makes her face softer.

I am not loving Rachel Taylor’s choice of shoes, nor her overall look.

Her LBD is worn with a 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2009 blazer.

09.02.09 Best Dressed

2009 Grammy Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Pretty pink strapless gowns seem to be the order of the day. First worn by Freida Pinto at the BAFTAs, now this gorgeous pink Basil Soda gown has been worn by Katy Perry.

The structure of the gown is exquisite, as I have come to appreciate from Lebanese designers.

The satin ruffle piece on the front of the gown doesn’t bother me, the retro hair fits the look, the pink lips are simply divine, and the subtle Jacob & Co jewels don’t over cook this look.

Most Unexpected Award
When I saw Jennifer Hudson arrive on the red carpet wearing a colour-block RM by Roland Mouret Trenet high neck dress I must admit I was very shocked.

If there was a line of 100 dresses, I would have picked this last for her, but she more than does it justice – and this is not any kind of sympathy vote.

This really is a statement dress, with 3 tones including a white high neck bodice, a grey contrast pleated peplum around the waist, and a dark navy pencil skirt.

Thankfully the hair is pulled back to show off the dress, and her blue suede shoes are Christian Louboutin Declic Suede Pumps. I personally would have preferred a strappy sandal.

Best One-Shouldered Dress Award
Zooey Deschanel stepped out of the box, and tried something new with this cute lilac Luella Spring 2009 dress.

There is much going on with the chiffon layer, the floral appliqué on the shoulder, and the skirt with the draped detail, but this does not overwhelm Zooey.

She wears this dress very confidently, and it suits her kooky style.

The lilac tights I like, the black peep-toes I don’t like.

Best Strapless & Ruffles Award
Sara Bareilles also wore a pink strapless dress from the Luisa Beccaria Spring 2009 collection. It’s so angelic, and I love the red accents.

She completes her look with a Daniel Swarovski silver clutch.

Most Improved Award
After her Cavalli dress at the Pre-Grammy party, Miley Cyrus couldn’t get any worst.

I was pleasantly surprised in her choice of this charming Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2008 asymmetrical gown, and I loved her hairstyle too.

Miley seemed very calm on the red carpet. No over-the-top poses, no obnoxious comments. I was very impressed by her maturity.

What No Bling? Award
Miley’s new BFF Taylor Swift, love for embellished dress was replaced by this Kaufman Franco black jersey gown, with wrap around patent leather strapping.

Continues To Be One To Watch Award
Kim Kardashian’s white/silver Toni Maticevski Spring 2009 dress was very cute, sassy and not at all trashy choice.

I love the organza detailing, which gives the dress a lot of shape and definition.

She worked her look with a pair of silver Christian Louboutin Fortuna slingbacks.

Best Use of Colour Award
I love a burst of colour on the red carpet, and Letoya Luckett certain provide it, with her fuchsia pink mini dress, multi-coloured snake-skin clutch and baby blue pumps.

Best Asymmetrical Gown Award
Looking a lot less bronze than she did the day before, Sheryl Crow looked amazing wearing a water-mix blue Toni Maticevski gown.

I love the slightly ruched bodice.

Golden Girl Award
Carrie Underwood glowed on the red carpet in a gold beaded tulle slip gown from the Zuhair Murad Resort 2009 collection, which she wore with a matching golden Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

I knew she could not stay away from this type of look for long.

It Should Not Have Worked, But It Did Award
Janelle Monae’s equestrian themed look was very charming.

I especially loved the white high collared pleated blouse.

Better With The Coat On Award
Anna Wintour was styling Adele for this event, so there were high hopes.

The Barbara Tfank LBD was nice enough, but I loved the look with the green coat.

Best Colour Block Award
LeAnn Rimes’ Philosophy Spring 2009 dress is so cute, I have to own it.

I love the cerulean blue top half, the heavily embellished waist, and the chiffon khaki skirt. Such a young and fresh look for the singer.

Best Re-Run Award
Iman has already worn this Rachel Roy Spring 2009 strapless dress, which had a embellished bodice and a tulip skirt. Jennifer Nettles wears it equally well.

Just OK Award
Apart from the Princess Leia hair style Audrina Patridge looks nice enough wearing a teal Tadashi strapless column gown with pleated bodice.

The Hills star walked the carpet Hans Solo.
