Runway To Sidewalk – Beyonce Knowles In Matthew Williamson

Mr and Mrs Carter are so busy with their careers that they are often on opposite ends of the world.

He is currently in Paris promoting his new album whilst Beyonce Knowles is touring in Australia.

On one particularly sunny day Beyonce was spotted out and about wearing a cute Matthew Williamson Spring 2009 cream dress covered in floral embroidery details.

She paired her dress with a pink Alexander McQueen bag and blue suede shoes.

At one show she reduced the audience to tears after paying a touching tribute to a young girl with leukaemia in Sydney, Australia.

The star embraced young fan Chelsea in her arms as she belted out a touching version of her ballad Halo.

Her little fan filled the arena with emotion as she mouth along the words with her superstar idol.

This woman really has a heart of gold.

2009 MTV Video Music Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
Amber Rose wore a snake-print long sleeved jumpsuit.

Enough said.

Most Predictable Award
After sitting front row at the Herve Leger show earlier this afternoon in a pink Herve Leger dress, Amanda Bynes doesn’t let us down.

LBD + Trib Two’s = yawwwwnnnnnn.

Most Ill-Fitting Award
Beyonce Knowles is wearing a pretty dress, but the skirt looks way too tight. The detail on the front is only adding to this problem.

What is it with Britney and Beyonce and this need to wear clothes that just don’t flatter.

Worst Brand Ambassador Award
I know Christopher Kane is really hot right now as we’ve seen similar versions of this black tulle skirt with velvet spiral trim in the past week. But shouldn’t Whitney have used this opportunity to promote her own debut collection she presented just 2 days ago?

Just asking.

It’s Lauren Conrad Collection all over again.

I Tried To Love It, But I Can’t Award
I didn’t like this Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 dress the first time we saw it on the red carpet, and Jennifer Lopez does nothing to change my mind.

I love that she’s not being predictable, but I’ve never liked this dress.

The singer pairs her dress with Christian Louboutin peep-toe lace ankle boots, with a leopard print heel.

Oh The Irony Award
Ashley Greene was the fashion correspondent for the night, which I found totally ironic considering how bad I thought she looked.

She arrived wearing this D&G gold skirt and a black strappy corset with ruffled edges, but later changed into a worse red skirt which bunched up like Beyonce’s.

I also really hated her gold skirt white clutch combo.

Ashley has to be the worst fashion correspondent ever, as she only asked Taylor Lautner what he was wearing despite interviewing Jennifer Lopez and Leighton Meester.

Worst Hair Award
Why do I always get a sense that Lauren Conrad just isn’t trying?

The dress is pretty if you like middle of the road on the red carpet, but the hair is just atrocious.  It ages her dramatically.

Worst Balmain Award
Despite us all laughing at Pink and Shakira’s expense for wearing the same Balmain dress on the red carpet tonight, Pink didn’t do this dress any justice.

For me it makes her look even more boxy.

Social Events Of The Week

“Answer The Call” Charity Concert – Press Conference, New York

Beyonce Knowles looks cute and fresh faced in her all black ensemble, which includes a 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2009 zipper skirt.

I think she could have worked this look without the belt.

“Funny People” Madrid Photocall

After Leslie Mann’s previous red carpet appearance wearing a dark olive Marni dress, she lighten things up for this photocall wearing a floaty and playful Jason Wu Resort 2010 mini chiffon dress.

What a way to get back on track.

The actress paired tan sandals to match her tan belt.

The NASDAQ Closing Bell, New York

Amber Valletta enviably tall and slender frame mean she can pull off difficult shapes with ease, hence being a supermodel.

I love her colour blocked combination of her blue silk Jenni Kayne roll sleeve tank paired with Jenni Kayne black high waisted pants.

That blue is just drawing me in like a magnet.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

I’m always rooting for Rumer Willis.   She often lets me down, but not on this occasion.

Her white Zac Posen cut-out dress was quite sophisticated and she looks really comfortable for a change.

She seems to be favouring Zac Posen at the moment, as this is the second dress she has worn by the designer in consecutive red carpet appearances.

Her look was paired with Sergio Rossi Marisa pumps, which also have a side cut-out detail.

NIKE And The CW Celebrate The Launch of Season 2 of “90210”, LA

All can I say about AnnaLynne McCord’s look is WHY?

This is not the AnnaLynne I know and love.

Jessica Lowndes gives us a pop of colour with bubblegum pink lipstick.

The Hollywood staple ankle boots and a little black lace dress complete the look.

“The Descent Part 2” Premiere, London

Actress Shauna Macdonald attended her “The Descent Part 2” premiere in London this week.

I’m the only one slight freak out by the fact that Shauna Macdonald – who is 7 months pregnant – is wearing a bandage dress?

Is that even safe? *winces*

Runway To Sidewalk – Beyonce Knowles Carrying A Christian Dior Samourai 1947 Woven Frame Bag

Beyonce Knowles and hubby Jay-Z were spotted out and about in New York this weekend.

She wore a cute polka-dot playsuit, with a large Chanel waist belt, a pearl necklace, and black peep-toes heels whilst carrying a Christian Dior Samourai 1947 woven frame bag.

The bag was presented during the Fall 2007 presentation, and it’s so interesting and unique it’s actually takes my attention away from her frightful hair do.

The fuchsia leather bag draws inspiration from Japanese basket weaving, with its intricate hand-woven layers throughout the body and strap.

The serpent detail and frame are craved from tortoiseshell, with the Dior logo in a picture frame hanging from a strap.

It truly is an exquisite bag, but despite Beyonce’s look costing thousands of dollars the overall look feels kinda cheap.

This bag is still available to purchase from Bergdorf Goodman for $4,200.

Social Events Of The Week

Samantha Thavasa Disney Collection, Japan

Beyonce and Solange Knowles were in Japan to promote the “Samantha Thavasa Disney Collection” of handbags.

I would’ve thought a younger face like Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez or Miley Cyrus would have been more appropriate to promote Disney line.

Anyway the sisters looked fabulous at the unveiling.

Beyonce looked svelte wearing a Akiko Ogawa Fall 2009 strapless blue patterned dress with an asymmetrical skirt and taupe heels.

It was a drastic transformation but Solange Knowles looks good with her new ‘do. I would never have the guts to sport this look myself so kudos to her.

She wore a white tank top with a cute ruffled pink skirt.

Solange has obviously been inspired by her sisters love of fierce heels, because she’s sporting a very interesting pair of Moschino Cheap & Chic Fall 2009 wedges.

DoSomething.org Celebrates The Power Of Youth, LA

Ashley Greene is becoming my Sophia Bush of 2009.

Each event she gives us something new. It was cute at the Teen Choice Awards, and sassy at this event wearing an Opening Ceremony black bustier dress with a lattice detail on the back.

Sultry soft waves, a mustard clutch and ivory Etro heels complete the look.

Shenae Grimes gives us a rich colour wearing a cute red Moschino tiered v-neck sleeveless dress, with some stunning accessories.

I love that bracelet.

Aubrey O’Day pairs her Alejandro Ingelmo woven slingbacks with a studded top and black leather skirt with an asymmetrical zipper.

Surprisingly covered up for Miss O’Day.

I’m not crazy about Leah Renee’s hairstyle but I do love the ruffles on her Notte by Marchesa strapless dress, which she pairs with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

“Bandslam” Special Screening, LA

Earlier I spoke about Leighton Meester’s weekend disaster, well Vanessa Hudgens had her own too.

She temporarily revert back to her tried and much tested boho inspired look wearing a Halé Bob’s silk chiffon maxi halter dress.

The print is hideous, the dress makes her look really short, and her feather earrings are cringe-worthy.

Not a good look.

PURE Nightclub, Las Vegas

Jenny McCartney shows us how thigh-high boots can go terribly wrong, undoing all the hard work fashion magazines have been doing trying to convince me that this look can work off the runway.
