In Blake Lively’s Closet – Marc Jacobs Jeweled Stam Satchel

Gossip Girl officially wrapped on Wednesday last week, and the stars were spotted leaving the set on a rainy evening in New York.

Penn Badgley did his best to keep his girlfriend Blake Lively dry, by holding her umbrella. What a gentleman.

You see she couldn’t hold the umbrella herself, as her hands were full with her shopping, her cute pooch, and her dazzling Marc Jacobs jeweled Stam Satchel.

The Stam bags have been around now, and they are so popular that you can’t tell the real ones from the fakes, but this is by far the most outstanding.

The bags quilts are covered in millions of sapphire blue Swarovski crystals, against dark blue suede. The bag has it’s traditional gold chain and snap closure.

Have this jewel sparkle on your arm, when you purchase it from eLuxury for $2,350.




Topshop/Topman After Party

Wow two celebrity previews, and an after party. Topshop are really trying to forge themselves in New York.

Jennifer Lopez was there again. This time she wore her other favourite heels, which are her Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2009 gold platform heels.

When you’re Jennifer Lopez you can wear your leather coat to a party, and still be the hottest person in the room.

Blake Lively wore a rolled sleeve Topshop blazer, over the matching grey suede dress, with studded details around the bust.

Her look was complete with a maroon bag, and a Giuseppe Zanotti studded cap-toe heels.

I think it’s safe to say she will not be making the Best Dressed list this week.

Kate Moss continues her love affair with YSL blazers. This time it’s white.

After cutting the ribbon earlier in the day, in her now sold out self designed green gown, she wore a nude sparkling mini dress with tights and black pumps to this party.

Why the spring colours, with the moody tights and shoes? This is a very confusing look for me. Silver strappy sandals, would have worked better here imo.



Best Dressed Of The Week – Blake Lively In Diane von Furstenberg

Back in 2007, Blake Lively was constantly wowing us on the red carpet. So much so, I named her One-To-Watch for 2008.

Back then this effort may not even have made the Best Dressed list, but when you put into context the unpredicted disappointment of Blake on the red carpet in 2008/09, this is a miracle.

I wouldn’t say this is a sympathy vote, more like a “thank god she’s back/please keep it up” vote.

Fingers crossed.

AnnaLynne McCord & Lilia Luciano were my next favourites.




Social Events Of The Week

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively finally gets it right.

She was looking ravishing in a mini pink Diane von Furstenberg dress, and gold Jimmy Choo’s for her appearance on Letterman this week.

I don’t even like one-sleeved anything, so for her to make me love this look, is even more impressive

Hot colour, hot look.

“Skellig” London VIP Screening

Kelly Macdonald wore a lace necklined Collette Dinnigan Spring 2009 LBD.

I love the silver beaded shoulders, which gives the dress a slight edgy Balmain-eqse feel to it.

EcoMom’s Sowing Hope In Congo Party, LA

Nicole Richie wears another look which is very typical of her earth-mother/boho style.

This white kimono sleeved maxi, is covered in an interesting pattern.

Kerry Washington teams a black pencil skirt, with a green Missoni Fall 2008 v-neck sweater.

It looks like she is wearing the same Choo’s as Blake Lively above.

The Ivy, LA

Paris Hilton looks pretty in pink – for a refreshing change – as she leaves the Ivy after dinner with her new boyfriend Doug Reinhardt and her parents.

Paris’ floral tulip-skirted dress is gorgeous. I really love it.

She teamed her dress with silver pumps for this sweet look.

On The ‘Gossip Girl’ Set With Leighton Meester & Blake Lively In Marchesa

Last night saw the return of Gossip Girl Season 2 in the US.

Episode 18 was called The Age of Dissonance, in reference to the Constance Billard and St. Jude seniors production of The Age of Innocence.

Blair Waldorf, played by Leighton Meester was dressed in a black lace Marchesa Fall 2008 gown.

The a high collared gown had ruffled details on the shoulders, and 3/4 of the skirt, with a charming brooch completing the look.

Leighton’s hair was plied up in a loose wavy updo, with a few pieces framing her face.

This dress gives off a Holly Golightly vibe. It really suits her.

I always pictured Ellen Pompeo in this dress, as she’s not afraid of a big daring dress.

Serena van der Woodsen, played by Blake Lively, was also dressed in a Marchesa Fall 2008 gown.

Her strapless dove grey gown, was adorned with feathers around the bodice, which cascaded down one side of her multi-layered chiffon skirt.

Blake’s hair was also pulled back off her face, to show off her rosy make-up.

Unfortunately I could not find a full-length picture, but I am sure she looked amazing in the gown.

Here is a preview of last nights episode.

Social Events Of The Week

The School Of American Ballet’s Winter Ball, New York

I was not crazy about the L’Wren Scott Fall 2009 collection. Too many similar dresses in different colours from past seasons put me off.

Thankfully Sarah Jessica Parker picked one of the best pieces. She wore this slinky body-hugging L’Wren Scott Fall 2009 green snake print dress, with a feathered stole, and strappy Christian Louboutin for L’Wren Scott heels from the collection.

Her look was complete with leather driving gloves, and a diamond bracelet.

Love her.

Some might say given their ages, it should be Blake Lively wearing the tight sexy L’Wren Scott dress, and SJP should have worn this black plunging Ralph Lauren gown, but life’s just not that black and white.

“Dragonball Evolution” World Premiere

If feels like forever since we last saw Emmy Rossum on the red carpet, but I am glad she kept up her sex kitten look.

The actress wore a blue strapless mini vintage Emanuel Ungaro Couture dress, that no doubt wowed the crowds.

Her hair was slicked back, so we could see her exquisite earrings.

The outstanding beautiful Jamie Chung wore dress to match, in this floral Jenni Kayne Resort 2009 which Sophia Bush wore to the Teen Choice Awards last year.

“Sunshine Cleaning” LA Premiere

Emily Blunt and Amy Adams play sisters in this movie, but they couldn’t have looked more different at this premiere.

Emily channeled her romantic side, with a pretty strapless Basil Soda dress, with a gorgeous ruffled bodice.

Whilst Amy opted for a slick in a white Burberry trouser suit.

I don’t recall seeing Amy in a suit before, but it’s a look that really works for her.

“Knowing” New York Premiere

I couldn’t find one picture of Rose Byrne’s smiling. Which is surprising, because I would be, if I wore her strapless Christian Cota Fall 2008 feathered dress.

The maroon dress is outstanding, and the details are exquisite.

“33 Variations” Broadway Opening Night, New York

Rose McGowan wears a black satin and tulle strapless dress from her favourite designers Dolce & Gabbana.

Her look is completed with a jeweled belt from their Spring 2009 collection, and a very questionable pair of brown pumps.

Way to spoil a look McGowan.

More From The Front Row

Brian Reyes

Rachel Bilson is BFF’s with Brian Reyes, so it was no surprise she was front row at his Fall 2009 show.

She wore a rust pleated back Brian Reyes Spring 2009 vest over a moss racer back dress from the same collection.

Michael Kors

This is the hairstyle Heidi Klum should have worn with her Matthew Williamson suit, it’s edgy without bordering on severe.

Her LBD from the Michael Kors Resort 2009 collection is outstanding.

Brian Reyes After Party

After the Brian Reyes show, Rachel Bilson head to the after-party wearing a white from the designers Spring 2009 collection.

As the dress is semi see-through, Rachel wore a white puff-sleeved dress underneath.

Zac Posen

Claire Danes wore a simple silver satin dress, which I do not favour.

Rachel Bilson wore a black pant suit, with a white and black trimmed blouse from Zac Posen Fall 2008 collection. She completed her look with a red clutch.

Nicole Richie was my best dressed at this show, wearing a gorgeous white sleeveless Zac Posen Spring 2009 dress.

Alicia Keys and DJ Leigh Lezark joined her in the front row wearing darker, less summery dresses.

Ralph Lauren


I am not liking any of this, but what I am most baffled about is why Blake Lively wore those beige shoes to go with her grey sweater dress and tan leather jacket?

Tommy Hilfiger

I think it’s safe to say that Diane Kruger is sponsored by Ray Bans. Why else is she pictured in them every show she goes to?

Selma Blair opted for a LWD with a black belt, tights and clutch.
