16th Annual Elle Women In Hollywood Tribute

Zoe Saldana glowed as always wearing a Calvin Klein Spring 2010 ivory dress.

The dress which is gathered on the skirt to give it some shape was paired with gold accessories.

Jenna Dewan was one of my favourites on this red carpet, as she dazzled me wearing a stunning Edition by Georges Chakra Fall 2009 grey ombre dress with sequin bodice.

Black t-bar Louboutin’s and a black clutch complete this gorgeous look.

Theron’s mini me, Katie Cassidy looked sophisticated and demure wearing an ivory Lela Rose Spring 2010 halter dress which had a metallic silver print and waist band.

Her hair was loosely pulled back as she paired her dress with silver Jimmy Choo “Flynn” sandals.

Fabulous as always.

At first I didn’t quite like Juilanne Moore’s Calvin Klein Spring 2010 ivory, grey and black tank dress at first, but it’s slowing growing on me.

It’s not BDOTW worthy, but she makes it work for her.

I do love the texture.

Diane Kruger opted for a cute short sleeved Balenciaga blue, white and black printed dress with draping around the hips to define the waist.

I like the shape of her dress and the polka dot tights don’t bother me, but I so would’ve referred her to wear the runway version.

There has been a lot of rumors that Renee Zellweger and Carolina Herrera have parted ways, but this cherry red strapless pencil dress screams Carolina Herrera to me.

I love the bow detail on the back, which is accented with an gold jewel detail.

Becki Newton looks divine wearing a ivory corseted Dolce & Gabbana strapless dress with a flirty chiffon skirt.

I love her silver strappy sandals, but I’m drooling over her Chloe bow embellished clutch.

One of my many pet peeves are exposed bra’s – anywhere – this is not exclusive to the red carpet.

If Katie Holmes was going to show us her bra under her black sheer Azzedine Alaia ensemble she could’ve at least worn a push up bra.

Emily Blunt wore a nude tulle strapless Dolce & Gabbana nude strapless dress with a grosgrain waist belt tied into a cute bow.

Her accessories were very complementary to her look without being to matchy matchy.

Robin Wright Penn wore an Emporio Armani black tuxedo jacket and black satin skinny trousers, paired with open-toe Christian Louboutin heels.

I hope she reverts back to those wow-factor looks we saw from her at Cannes.

Dianna Agron wore a strapless D&G tulle dress with Burberry Prorsum platform heels.

These heels are so heavy for this pretty dress.

Brenda Strong’s black David Meister sheath dress is accented by an amazing crystal beaded neckline.

I could gush about that stunning neckline all day, as it’s so pretty.

Sofia Vassilieva looked so cute, in her age appropriate Ina Soltani white party dress with black leather strap details.

The lucky teen got to wear stunning Swarovski jewelry with her fabulous dress.

Another teen cutie Miranda Cosgrove wore a Vena Cava Mandala dress.

The two-tone crew-neck silk dress features a sheer chiffon yoke and asymmetrical metallic fringe and chiffon ruffles on the body.

I love the embellishments on this dress.

Cat Deeley normally always looks fabulous, but on this occasion she looks a hot mess.

Leave this look to those trashy D Listers Cat, you’re way better than this.

Whilst I don’t particularly have a problem with what Amber Rose to this event because she will never look anything but tacky to me, I did have a huge issue with her Ocotber Elle US magazine editorial which was more Maxim than Elle.

Of course it was style by Kanye West.

Elle, seriously, what were you thinking?

America Ferrera & Esquire Host A Save The Children Benefit & An Evening With “Ugly Betty”

America Ferrera & Esquire Host A Save The Children Benefit

The cast of “Ugly Betty” attended two events in New York City last night, but it was only America Ferrera – host of this benefit – who had two looks.

America walked the red carpet wearing a black Moshino safety pin-embellished crepe dress paired with gold peep-toes.

I love the stunning slim-fitting silhouette plus the safety pins and Swarovski crystals embellishments, but I’m not a fan of mixing metals.

My personal preference is that you either wear gold or silver, but it’s a minor detail when she looks this amazing.

Evening With “Ugly Betty”

Becki Newton looked amazing wearing a ruffled Prabal Gurung Fall 2009 sleeveless top paired with a striped tulip skirt from the same collection.

She took a night off wearing her favourite Jimmy Choo Karina studded shoe-boots and opted for a sexy black sandal.

Perfectly petite and polished as always.

Becki picked this look out a few weeks ago during New York Fashion Week when she visited the designer at his New York studio.

I don’t know about you, but I actually prefer this look on America Ferrera.

I adore her cropped pants and the 3/4 length sleeved jacket which nips her in at the waist to give her a streamlined silhouette.

It’s such a chic interpretation of a pants suit, that I wish to emulate this look as soon as I can.

Gold peep-toes and a white v-neck tee complete the look.

Vanessa Williams adds an interesting element to her asymmetrical LBD with two tone ankle strapped heels.

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

21.09.09 Interview

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.
