Runway To Oscar Parties – Victoria Beckham & Cameron Diaz In Victoria Beckham Collection

During her Fall 2010 presentation, Victoria Beckham announced to her invited guests that she was going to wear the above gown to Elton John’s Oscar party – which she did.

The problem with her announcing which look she was going to wear was that it took away the anticipation and excitement out of her look.

She does look great in her self designed dress. I love that it’s not black – like she wore last year – as her face feels brighter, but this could be due to the lighter make-up and lighting.

She was easily one of the best dressed at the Oscar parties.

Cameron Diaz’ look I didn’t see coming.

At the Vanity Fair Party the blonde actress arrived wearing my favourite look from Victoria Beckham’s Fall 2010 collection.

The gold/silver shimmering asymmetrical dress is stunning, but the thud at her feet is still ringing in my ears.

I love you Rachel. You’re an amazing stylist, but what’s with these black pumps paired with nearly everything for your clients?

Demi Moore doesn’t hit a red carpet without black pumps either.

With the amount of shoes Rachel has on offer this really lets me down.

Runway To 2010 Oscars – Cameron Diaz In Oscar de la Renta

Shimmer, Smile & Sparkle Award
I was happy to see Cameron Diaz arrive late on the red carpet at the 2010 Oscars, because the red carpet was clear and I could get a good look at her gown.

She was positively radiant in her Oscar de la Renta Fall 2010 gown.  She really brought the Hollywood glamour to the red carpet.

The champagne tulle Oscar de la Renta gown was covered with gold paillette embroidery and was simply breath-taking.

Her gown was stunning so she didn’t need to add much bling, just confidence, the side swept hair and that beautiful smile.

What did occur to me was that Rachel Zoe’s girls are both wearing strapless ballgowns.

18.01.10 Best Dressed

2010 Golden Globes Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award

I was a bit underwhelmed by this red carpet until I saw Diane Kruger.

Ever since I attended the Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Couture show in January last year I’ve been praying to see this gown on the red carpet.

Diane more than does this stunning pink ombre gown justice. The colour really pops on the soggy red carpet on a cold and rainy night in LA.

I love the sleek old Hollywood hairstyle. She was really out to impress.

Her white Raven Kauffman Couture clutch matched the pretty white bow on the side of her dress.

Most Predictable Award

There would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Marion Cotillard would wear Christian Dior.

Style.com even predicted that exact dress she would wear.

Being the face of ‘Lady Dior’ helps, plus when we see her in Dior we always get spectacular results.

Her petrol green satin asymmetrical Spring 2010 dress has a thigh-high split with a black négligée peeping through.

Jimmy Choo ‘Drake’ sandals and Chopard jewels complete her look.

Biggest Shock Award

Courteney Cox walked the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 collection.

Like most pieces from VB’s collection the dress was well structured and had a ‘top to hem’ zipper along the back.

I liked the jeweled detail on the empire waist, and the chic updo Courteney sported.

Normally I don’t care much for Courteney on the red carpet, but she really surprised me by how great she looked.

She carried a black Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch.

Her husband actor David Arquette dutifully kept her dry from the pouring rain.

Best Couture Award

This is definitely one of those ‘better on screen look’s.  Unfortunately the picture isn’t doing Drew Barrymore any favours.

Her Atelier Versace Fall 2009 one shoulder champagne gown was stunning.

The nude corset was covered by a nude crystallized overlay, with two clusters of glass fringes on the shoulder and the hip.

Her hair was swept back as not to interfere with the details, as the actress wore Lorraine Schwartz jewels to complete her look.

It’s A Grower Award

I’ve been going back and forth with Julianne Moore.

I was just about to put her on the Worst Dressed list, when I decided that her Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 dress wasn’t as bad as I first thought.  Mostly because she looks so elegant.

The grey colour initially put me off this silk bustier gown, but I really like the pleated lace detailed neckline and her green Bvlgari earrings were magnificent.

Black suede Balenciaga stingray sandals complete the look.

Beautiful, Even When Slightly Wet Award

Chloe Sevigny would’ve been the most worried about getting her rose Valentino sleeveless gown wet as it would’ve deflated those beautiful ruffles.

But she was lucky to have a someone to help shield her dress from the rain.

Buccellati jewels complete the look.

Va Va Voom ‘Jessica Rabbit’ Award

Christina Hendricks has the most amazing body, which she always dresses so well.

She leaves me breathless in this stunning Christian Siriano Spring 2010 gown which was custom-made to hug those delicious curves.

She carried a Christian Loubuotin ‘Kephron’ silver clutch and wore Loree Rodkin jewels.Read More…

Runway To “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” – Cameron Diaz In Chanel

It seems like only last week, but it was actually back in June when Cameron Diaz was last on the Jimmy Fallon looking stunning in Louis Vuitton jacket paired with jeans.

This time she wore a Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 white gold buttoned jacket, which had a navy blue trim with a red stripe.

Being Cameron she of course wore her look with jeans adding a tribal necklace and ankle boots.

Cameron has been giving us a grown up look on the red carpet which hasn’t gone down too well with many fans, but here she gives us that easy breezy California chic look we all love to see on her.

She was on Jimmy Fallon’s show to promote her thriller “The Box”.

As you would expect from any Cameron/Jimmy interview, there was a lot of laughing and joking whilst they played charades with audience members.

Social Events Of The Week

Georgina Chapman For Garrard Launch, London

Standing quite a vision in regal blue, Georgina Chapman posed at the launch of her new jewellery collection for Garrard.

Once again we see the designer rocking her own brand, however the founder of Marchesa does make a rather impressive clothes horse for this exotic design.

A mass of sequins and beads, this short sparkly number certainly gains attention, with bordering feathers softening the tough structure. Opting for simple black platforms to complement her look, Georgina keeps the rest basic too, with natural hair and just a touch of a smouldering eye on show.

Princess Beatrice attended the event wearing a Notte by Marchesa Fall 2009 piece.

Very much in-keeping with this season’s favourite trend, Beatrice knows that anything that glitters or gleams goes, and looks fantastic covered in chunky gold sequins.

The little jacket and tights that Beatrice has chosen smarten this look, showing that even though she is a Princess, Beatrice knows grown-up glamour.

“The Box” New York Premiere

Despite this RM by Roland Mouret body-con dress fitting Cameron Diaz’s form perfectly, it’s disappointing to see the normally animated and lively actress in this more muted style.

Her personality has previously been heightened by what she has worn, however here, Cameron loses something of her kinetic celebrity persona.

By dressing down in tights and adding a tame up ‘do, it further dampens things. This dress doesn’t do her justice.

“Valentino: The Last Emperor”, New York

In keeping with recent ghoulish-festivities, Daphne Guiness stepped out a few nights ago in a dark ensemble, mixing textures and shapes creatively.

The fashion-forward mum-of-three stuck with her usual flamboyant style, combining tight leather leggings, a satin bodice and a velvet cropped jacket.

Stepping out in Nina Ricci’s lavish Fall 2009 boot, Daphne doesn’t disappoint as an example of someone unafraid to experiment with fashion, fully confident in her stride.

Socialite Lauren Remington Platt was spotted wearing this gorgeous Julien Macdonald dress recently, a garment taken from the designer’s Spring 2010 collection.

This same dress was placed on our Wish List page not long ago for starlet Cheryl Cole.

The candy-colours fused with figure-hugging fabric create a piece that is sweet and girly but with a flirtatious, sexy edge.

CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Dinner, LA

Stunning Diane Kruger looks effortlessly chic in this asymmetric Chloe Fall 2009 jumpsuit.

Belted, to cinch her waist and showing just a peep of skin, the actress needn’t do anything else to this fabulous piece.

She kept her hair and make-up basic to achieve a flawless example of great style.
