On Set With The Cast Of Gossip Girl

The cast of Gossip Girl took over the Manhattan streets last week to film series 3 of our favourite show.

Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf wore a beautiful Burberry Prorsum belted brocade dress, whilst carrying a L.A.M.B. Women’s Darjeeling Leather Orissa Clutch, whilst filming a scene with Ed Westwick aka Chuck Bass.

Jessica Szohr as Vanessa Abrams’ wardrobe seems to have stepped up a notch from last season.

She wore an ethnic inspired look consisting of a black Nanette Lepore Discover Me jeweled top with some colourful shorts, and MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Tucson’ sandals.

With her hair half up an half down, Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen wore a bohemian Rag & Bone Justine maxi dress with sparkling Sigerson Morrison gladiator flats.

Taylor Momsen as ‘not so little anymore’ Jenny Humphrey walked to set wearing a stripy top, shorts with braces and Givenchy cut-out booties.

Between takes Leighton wore a gorgeous peach water stain Seneca Rising tee with jeans.

In another take Blake was spotted wearing a colourful Dries Van Noten Fall 2008 blazer, a slate grey Twelfth St. By Cynthia Vincent playsuit and grey Marc by Marc Jacobs peep-toe ankle boots.

It must be so much fun to dress these girls. I wonder if they get to keep the clothes afterwards.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Blake Lively & Marion Cotillard

I guess I called it wrong when I said the Best Dressed of The Week poll would be dominated by Marion Cotillard and Cameron Diaz, because Megan Fox and Blake Lively were neck and neck this weekend.

Blake Lively wowed in a stunning backless Cavalli white dress, with black Manolo Blahnik studded heels whilst giving us her signature head tilted pose.

Some of you were so shocked when she took the lead, that I was asked if fan sites had linked to the poll. They hadn’t, so it was clear many of you simply loved her in this dress.

Marion was my pick as she is the only person that really wowed me this week.

She was head-to-toe perfection wearing Elie Saab and Jimmy Choo, whilst exuding air of sophistication which eludes so-called stars – Phoebe Price, Bai Ling – on the red carpet.

Swarovski Crystallized Concept Store Opening

Striking her favourite head slightly tilted pose, Blake Lively looked stunning on the red carpet wearing a white Roberto Cavalli dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

I’m glad she opted for the white shorter version and not the runway version, as she simply glows in this dress.

The dress is open at the back with black mesh panels on the side of the dress.

Just got out of bed hair and black studded Manolo Blahnik Creo heels complete this sexy look.

Last time out many of you commented that Evan Rachel Wood was slipping back to her Dita von Teese “copy cat” ways, well this is a complete 180.

Evan wore a Gucci Fall 2009 ensemble consisting of a midnight blue check boxy jacket with matching cigarette pants striking quite a masculine stance.

She also wore a striped shirt with black/white check collar and black pumps to complete the look.

Dita who?

This is the second outing for Chloe Sevigny’s camel Chloé scallop edged short suit.  This time she wears it with a multi-coloured sequined top and strappy two-tone sandals.

Lucy Liu brightens up the red carpet – as she always does – wearing a bold red cape Paul & Joe dress with a matching patent belt.

Her look is contrasted with neutral accessories including a white Prada bag and nude Jimmy Choo heels.

I’m glad she didn’t opt for red lips as it would have been too obvious. Nude lips work beautifully here.

2009 CFDA Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Zoe Saldana continues to impress me. “Star Trek” has push her in the limelight, but her great choices in on the red carpet increase her star status.

Take this Calvin Klein Resort 2010 grey dress for example. It was plain and quite boring on the runway, but Zoe brings it to life.

She makes it sexy and sassy without much effort.

Did It Hurt When You Fell From Heaven? Award
*Sighs*

Could Anja Rubik be anymore beautiful? Anja and Halle Berry should be allow to walk amongst us normal folk.

The stunning supermodel arriving looking angelic wearing a white Kaufman Franco Fall 2009 one-shouldered gown.

She wore the gown without it’s ruffled detail on the behind, which showed how dangerously low the dress was cut.

On some Megan Fox this would have been deemed trashy, but on Anja *sighs* just damn sexy.

Best Use of Colour Award
There’s always a 50/50 split when it comes to Blake Lively.

I hope when you see her looking drop dead gorgeous wearing this neon pink Michael Kors Fall 2009 strapless sheath dress, more of you will be swayed to liking her.

Her twins aren’t on display, she looks youthful, vibrant and sexy.

What’s not to love?

Best Modification Award
Jason Wu really understood his muse for the night, as he took this sophisticated business-like runway dress and turned it into a sexy mini for Diane Kruger.

Diane would look great in a bin liner lets face it, but the colour, length, fabric and embellished embroidered shoulders really looks amazing on her.

I hate to be picky but I really wish she would change her hairstyle more often. I feel like we see this style a lot.

Model Magic Award
Many of you who loved the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 collection were non to happy when Rihanna arrived at the Met Gala wearing a black suit from the collection.

Molly Sims should bring that enthusiasm back because she looked so cute and playful wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 strapless dress, with a Marilyn Monroe print emblazoned on it.

Risk That Paid Off Award
This is a rare red carpet outing for Kirsten Dunst.

The actress always opts for bold pieces which don’t always work, but on this occasion she looks amazing.

Rodarte is never a safe choice. The pieces are bold, edgy and dynamic plus you need the right kind of attitude to pull a Rodarte piece off.

She totally does with grey Nicholas Kirkwood heels.

Most Theatrical Award
At first I really disliked Doutzen Kroes in this red Zac Posen gown, mostly because I thought it was too grand for her. Plus I’m so used to seeing her in Herve Leger I didn’t quite think it was her style.

Then I realised how much better the dress looks without the gold belt, and appreciated the way she had made an effort to make the gown work for her.

Best Vintage Award
As much as I appreciate the Olsen twins picking interesting vintage pieces, I would love to see them in something off-the-runway more often.

Ashley Olsen wore an orange vintage gown with gold leaf embroidery around the shoulders. Her look was complete with Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and Versace heels.

Some might say it’s a little too big for her. I would say it’s better than a bandage dress.

Glorious Glow Award
Even if Heidi Klum wasn’t pregnant and wearing a silver crushed lame Michael Kors asymmetrical mini dress, she would still glow. So these added elements only make her more beautiful.

Her silver Christian Louboutin Anthracite Ole Ole heels and clutch matched her dress, but it’s her earrings I’m drooling over.

Best Black Award
Claire Danes is never one I can get excited about on the red carpet, but I do love her quiet elegant style. Some would call it boring, for me is very understated.

The actress looked elegant wearing a black Narciso Rodriguez embroidered black silk crepe gown which was cut low at the front and open at the back.

Best Legs Award
Model Hilary Rhoda arrived wearing a gorgeous one-shouldered Calvin Klein dress which showed off how incredibly long her pins are.

If you got it flaunt it honey.

Her look was completed with her hair pulled back in a tight bun and a VBH clutch.

Stepping Out Of Her Comfort Zone Award
Maggie Grace is usually very boring on the red carpet, so imagine my surprise to see her wearing this Christian Siriano Spring 2009 grey ruffled confection.

Every time I see a variation of this dress on the red carpet it’s belted.

It would be nice to see it without a belt if its worn again in the future, but the belt does work for Maggie here.

Best Accessories Award
Stylist Rachel Zoe arrived wearing a Louis Vuitton peachy gown, which I first thought was a Marc Jacobs gown as it resembles the finale gowns that were presented in the Spring 2009 collection, but her twitter message confirm that it’s Louis Vuitton.

Her golden accessories including a Louis Vuitton clutch, vintage Chanel earrings, plus Yossi Harari rings and bracelets.

Simple Yet Always Elegant Award
Kerry Washington has opted for a lot of bold choices lately wearing Louis Vuitton edgy ensembles, so it’s nice to see her bring her look back to a softer more elegant style we usually associate her with.

Last night she glowed wearing a silverly grey Doo.Ri Resort 2010 sleeveless gown with a plunging neckline.

Her jewels were also simple and she opted for a matching silver Swarovski clutch.

Best Embellishments Award
Whist Melissa George’s Nicole Miller gown has no shape, I am totally captivated by the embroidered crystals on her strapless gown.  Exquisite.

Black to Black Award
Yes I’m referring to Coco Rocha hair, which she debut on her blog a few weeks ago.

The supermodel wore an asymmetrical Michael Kors red Resort 2010 slide dress with a black print.

Her look was paired with a gold cuff, black strappy sandals and a matching clutch.

The Wow Moment Award
Comedian Tracey Ullman really shocked me when I saw her in this glorious red Doo.Ri gown with an asymmetrical neckline.

I don’t think I have ever seen her look so fabulous.

No BoHo Award
Finally Whitney Port has ditched that hippy chick look, for a fresh sophisticated look wearing a Luca Luca Fall 2009 halter gown.

The draped silver beaded gown sparkled so beautifully. She really out did herself here. I’m totally wowed by her

Social Events Of The Week

2009 Fresh Air Fund Salute To American Heroes, New York

Michelle Williams wore a demure ivory one-shouldered 3.1 Phillip Lim dress, with an asymmetrical gold detailed bodice, which complimented her gold Jimmy Choo Frost mirrored leather sandals, and the trim of her YSL box clutch.

She looks divine in her heavenly dress.

Mariah Carey and Michelle are worlds apart, when it comes to dress sense.

After a few events in which Mariah stepped up her game, she kinda takes a few steps back in this white column Georges Chakra Couture gown.

The figure-hugging strapless gown, simple and beautiful, but that embroidered floral panel I really dislike, as it reveals her underwear.

Her gown is paired with Christian Louboutin Amelissa Platform Sandals.

“Star Trek” Press Conference And Photo Call, Mexico

Zoe Saldana’s ivory Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 leather dress, doesn’t have the same wow factor as so many of her other ‘Star Trek’ looks, but she still looks pretty damn fantastic.

I love how her hair is styled, and her natural make-up.

Brian Atwood black patent ‘Maniac’ pumps, complete this sophisticated look.

“The Hangover”, New York Screening

Molly Sims works a tailored look, pairing a Rag & Bone Spring 2009 metallic silver jacket, with cropped black trousers, and a white tank.

Sergio Rossi elasticated strappy ankle sandals, and a vintage necklace add more credit to this edgy look.

“Blood: The Last Vampire”, South Korea

Jeon Ji-Hyun really shouldn’t have worn thick black tights, with her cute white Chanel off-the-shoulder knit dress.

Talk about ruining a look.

Massimo Ferragamo Cocktail Party, New York

Lake Bell smolders in a red, high neck Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2009 dress, with black accessories.

W Hotel Grand Opening, Florida

Blake Lively keeps her twins covered – for once I hear you say – wearing an angelic white ruched Christian Cota dress.

She looks great with her trademark wavy locks, and purple strappy sandals, which almost match the purple carpet.

LG Xenon Splash Pool Party, LA

Hayden Panettiere is still glowing with her perfect tan, and glossy hair.

The actress looks super-cute wearing a mint green chiffon dress, with strappy metallic sandals.

This look really shows off her softer side, with loose curls framing her face, and flawless natural make-up.

Dania Ramirez wears a Sunner “Florent” combo linen and cotton jumpsuit which I love, but I don’t like her choice of bubble gum pink heels with the look.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Jessica Biel goes for a low-key, yet still very feminine look, wearing a beige leather mini skirt, which she teamed with a silk navy cami.

She accessorized with an ornate Tom Binns ‘Dumont’ necklace, a Prada denim bag, and chunky Gucci Iman T-strap sandals.
