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.

Runway To “Paley Center for Media Ugly Betty Screening” – Becki Newton In Dolce & Gabbana


We all knew it would be hard for actresses to wear the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 pajama sets on the red carpet.

You may remember Jessica Alba getting it terribly wrong at the My Bloody Valentine 3D LA screening back in January.

Becki Newton, decided to give it a go at the preview of the Ugly Betty: The Rabbit Test episode, presented by the Paley Center for Media last night.

She opted for the cute Dolce & Gabbana pot print pajama shorts, which she wore with a Dolce & Gabbana bustier, a black tuxedo jacket, and black Christian Louboutin Etrier patent leather sandals, and it all works.

I really love what she did with this look, she broke up the runway look, and made it her own.

Definitely a Best Dressed Of The Week contender, for making what I thought was the impossible, possible.


You can get Becki’s looks including her:

Dolce & Gabbana bustier
Browns Fashion
£1,105/€1,232.16/$1,635.95

Dolce & Gabbana dot print pajama shorts

Who Wore Matthew Williamson Better? Joy Bryant or Becki Newton


Joy Bryant took a rare night off wearing Missoni, to wear this cute strapless dress, when she attended the Matthew Williamson New York store opening party during New York Fashion Week.

Joy teamed her dress with a cropped black cardigan, tights and black boots, whilst accessorizing with a black clutch, and a large statement necklace.

Ugly Betty actress Becki Newton opted for the same dress at the screening for I Love You, Man last month.

Silver bracelets, and matching silver strappy sandals completed the look.

Joy mutes the look with all the black accessories, so Becki wins for me.

America Ferrera’s Gotham Magazine Cover Launch Party

America Ferrera looked gorgeous at the Gotham Magazine Party held in her honour last tonight.

The chic cover star wore a light blue cap sleeve Malandrino Resort 2009 dress, with a dramatic deep v-neck.

I love everything about this look. The colour, the collar, the plunging neckline, the interesting square panel that draws in her waist, her hair, and her make-up.

This is the best I’ve seen America look, for a long time.

Her gorgeous cast-mates were there to support her.

Becki Newton wore the 3.1 Phillip Lim winding zipper ruffle dress, which both Kate Bosworth and Lucy Liu have worn already.

The unique semi-sheer black dress has winding, layered metal zips from the collar to the hemline, which the star wears with black pointy pumps.

Despite this being a re-run, Becki still injects a bit of freshness to the dress.

Vanessa Williams continues her love affair with Matthew Williamson’s electric prints.

For this event she wore a Matthew Williamson Ambroise georgette dress. The striking silk dress has a low v-neck, cap sleeves, and tie at the waist.

I couldn’t find a full-length picture of Vanessa, but I’ll hope that she didn’t wear black heels with this dress, vivid yellow would have been awesome.

Vanessa looks flawless, and you can too if you buy this dress from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $1,225, or the international site for £575/€690.
