Social Events Of The Week

MusiCares, Atlantic City

Nicky Hilton celebrated her 26th birthday this weekend in Atlantic City.

Before blowing out her candles, she walked the red carpet wearing a Christoper Kane for Topshop black dress.

The LBD has cut-out details, and is covered in grommets which appear on many of the pieces from the Christopher Kane for Topshop collection.

Taking a rare night off wearing her favourite Christian Louboutin Very Prive studded heels, she opted for a pair of Christian Louboutin Candy stud pumps.

“Make Time for CHANGE” campaign, New York

Jennifer Garner opted for a magenta RM by Roland Mouret Brise Noir dress, which is similar but not the same as dress which Cynthia Nixon wore on the Sex And The City set recently.

Surrogates LA, Premiere

Radha Mitchell’s body looks amazing in her one-sleeved Costume National Fall 2009 LBD.  She reminds me that I haven’t been to the gym in 3 weeks.

I love the texture of her dress and the pointy shoulders.

She pairs her dress with Swarovski jewelry and Casadei silver heels.

Elizabeth Banks’ Farah Angsana Fall 2009 silver dress is beautiful with it beaded cap sleeves and bow belt.

I love everything about this look including the bow heels, but I prefer Elizabeth Banks with lighter locks.

Maxim Celebrates Audrina Patridge’s October Cover, LA

Audrina Patridge also wore a dress from Farah Angsana’s Fall 2009 collection.

She looked flawless in her modified racy red mini dress, which she paired with a sparkling Daniel Swarovski clutch and Alexander McQueen strappy sandals.

Wonderbra By Dita Von Teese Launch, Milan

Dita von Teese is wearing the same style Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2009 dress which we saw on Christian Applegate earlier.

The difference is obviously the colour and Dita’s dress has polka dots on the blouse.

Macy’s Passport Gala 2009, LA

AnnaLynne McCord looked sexy wearing a nude Topshop one-sleeved dress with an embellished floral detail on the shoulder.

She wore her dress with purple suede pumps, a grey clutch and a selection of bangles.

Judith Leiber Rodeo Drive Store Opening, LA

Katie Cassidy continues to impress.

This time she wears an olive green Yigal Azrouel one-sleeved jersey dress, with blue Brian Atwood heels and of course a Judith Leiber clutch.

Also carrying a Judith Leiber clutch was Ginnifer Goodwin, who wore a navy Camilla & Marc Dylan trench coat as a dress, paired with Stella McCartney heels.

Opening of Renaissance NY Hotel 57, New York

Becki Newton also opted for Camilla & Marc for her red carpet appearance.

The ‘Ugly Betty’ actress wore a cute black and gold bustier dress with her favourite Jimmy Choo Karina studded shoe-boots, paired with a stack of gold bracelets.

Neutrogena Fresh Faces of Music, LA

I love Hayden Panettiere’s strapless fitted dress, but as we have seen many times before the dress is too tight around her bust.

Her look is completed with Sergio Rossi red snakeskin peep-toes, and a Christian Louboutin clutch.

Vanessa Hudgens wore a Camilla and Marc Aven nude leather dress, with silver heels.

Guests Arrive For Khloe Kardashian And Lamar Odom’s Wedding, LA

Only the publicity hungry Kardashian’s can turn a wedding into a red carpet event.

Kelly Osbourne who is apparently friendly enough with the Kardashian’s to be invited to Khloe’s wedding wore a black and white printed Preen Lightening dress, with black heels.

Adrienne Bailon looked stunning wearing an electric blue strapless BCBG Max Azria gown.

Brittny Gastineau arrived wearing a beautiful flowing maroon gown, whilst LaLa Vazquez opted for a very sexy Dolce & Gabbana ruched two-tone dress with Christian Louboutin Archidisco T-strap sandals

My Interview With Becki Newton Backstage @ Brian Reyes

Backstage at the Brian Reyes Spring 2010 presentation I introduced myself to Becki Newton.

Her eyes widen as she asked “You’re the one who shows everyone one the red carpet That’s you? Oh my god.”

I started to search through my memory bank wondering if I had said anything bad about Becki, but I assured myself that I hadn’t and she continued, “Oh my god, you do such a great job.”

She introduced me to her stylist Annie, who also works at Elle, as Becki informed me that she introduced Annie to my blog. Annie told me that everyone in her office reads my blog.

Wow. My mind was blown. It was a real OMG moment.

Becki had said to Annie that my blog is a good way of tracking what everyone else is wearing.

Just when I thought she couldn’t compliment me anymore Becki said, “We love you. Do you understand that it’s the go to reference, you do an absolutely great job.”

“It’s dignified, but it still has humour which I really like because it’s funny, you don’t take it too seriously.”

With a twinkle in her eye she said, “Even when you’re not feeling it, you’re usually right…even when it’s me, so great job.

The Best From The Front Row @ New York Fashion Week

Thakoon

Ciara was easily one of my favourites at Fashion Week.

She looked so beautiful wearing a Thakoon wool crepe shift dress which had a contrast black chiffon lining and trim, paired with Louboutin pumps.

Donna Karan

Milla Jovovich’s striped Donna Karan Resort 2009 dress is so chic paired with silver pumps.

Altuzarra

I guess Altuzarra weren’t loaning out clothes for their star guests because Leighton Meester wore an eggplant Emilio de la Morena Fall 2009 dress with Proenza Schouler lace-up ankle boots…

…whilst Rachel McAdams wore a navy and white striped Boy by Band of Outsiders Spring 2010 skirt with a black top.

Charlotte Ronson

Jessica Stroup wore a flirty floral Charlotte Ronson Spring 2010 strapless dress which is so exclusive it wasn’t even seen in the Spring 2010 presentation.

She paired her dress with snake-skin strappy sandals.

Marc Jacobs

Lady GaGa wears the same Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 black cap sleeved dress embellished with jeweled stones, which Miss Piggy wore recently.

I wonder who the winner of that WWIB poll will be?

Tommy Hilfiger

I just love this red dress which Taylor Swift pairs with Stuart Weitzman black bow heels.

So vibrant.

Preen

Becki Newton wore a Preen Mixed Mono dress under a black blazer.

I would’ve loved to have seen this dress without the blazer to see more of its multi-print panel design.

Proenza Schouler

Leighton Meester doesn’t look to happy in her Proenza Schouler Resort 2010 ensemble and I don’t blame her.

Max Azria

Lucy Liu was elegant and classy as always wearing a cream fitted Max Azria dress.

Maggie Q’s Max Azria vibrant yellow dress really pops on her.

I love how she brings this strapless draped dress to life.

Celebrities At Marchesa’s Spring 2010 Presentation

I was in the same room as both Georgina Chapman and Blake Lively and didn’t notice they were wearing the same Marchesa Spring 2009 lace shorts. It’s like Pink and Shakira all over again.

The reason I didn’t notice is because I was in a room full of breath-taking gowns.

Neither seemed to mind as they had both worn the shorts in different ways.

Georgina paired her shorts with a plain tank top, whilst Blake wore the runway embellished jacket.

It’s also quite cute that they are wearing the same Christian Louboutin’s ankle booties too.

Alexa Chung’s Heidi braids were quite appropriate to complete the gypsy feel to her look.

She wore a black Marchesa Spring 2008 dress with stunning gold embroidered with a tan Mulberry Alexa Bag and black ankle boots.

Becki Newton wore an embroidered jewel neck short sleeve Marchesa dress with beige Christian Louboutin platform heels.

The dress really sparkled under the museums lights.

Can anyone confirm this Katherine McPhee’s new hairstyle is for a movie. Because I’m struggling to believe this was by choice.

The singer gives Drew Barrymore a run for her money in the race for ‘worst hair of the week’ award whilst wearing a stunning ivory Marchesa Resort 2010 one shoulder pleated crepe dress with embroidered waist.

Gold shoes would have complemented the gold embroidery detail on her dress better in my opinion.

Emmy Rossum shows us how low the plunge on the back of her feather detailed pink duchess satin sheath Marchesa dress goes.

Gold accessories complete her look.

Brian Reyes Spring 2010


Brian Reyes’ Spring 2010 collection will bring out the girlie girl in you.

Ultra feminine looks were presented which were light and airy, with chiffon ruffled blouses, aqua prints, and shorts.

I loved the light-weight denim pieces, especially the tulip skirt with slightly frayed edges.

The details were subtle with no over the top shoulders which we are now tired of. Just cute ruffles, fitted dress, t-shirt dresses and floaty blouses.

After the show I asked Brian what his inspiration was for this collection.

He said “Theory of evolution, muscle form skeleton form, passion, love, the heart, anything that has to do with emotion and everything that has to do with us”.

Brian said that he doesn’t have a muse as she has many different women in his life who he is inspired by.

He continued to say that he likes pure and simple things, which he tries to design in an architectural way.

“Prints are a very big thing for me and embroidery I love“.

My new BFF Becki Newton worked her Brian Reyes Fall 2009 print silk dress which features tiered ruffles on the skirt and a slash to the back.

Jimmy Choo Karina studded shoe-boots completed her look.

Becki is such a sweet-heart. I spoke to her briefly backstage, but I will bring that to you later.

Rachel Bilson – who is a good friend of Brian Reyes -opted for a golden dress from the Resort 2010.

Who Wore YSL Better? Becki Newton or Maribel Verdu

Becki Newton was the first to wear this green YSL pailette strapless harem dress, when she attended The Metropolitan Opera’s 125th Anniversary Gala.

She wore her dress with with silver YSL cage heels

Maribel Verdu was yet another Cannes re-run, as she wore the same harem dress, to premiere of her movie Tetro, with YSL criss cross satin heels.

Becki’s caged heels win this for me.

Net-A-Porter US have this on sale, in black for $2,610. Both come with a black velvet bow belt.

Becki’s YSL cage sandals can be purchased from Browns Fashion for £1,345/€1,506.83/$2,042.52.
