Best Dressed Of The Week – Katy Perry In Marchesa & Camilla Belle In Alexander McQueen

I was convinced we would love the same dress this week, but you guys picked Katy Perry wearing a stunning nude one shoulder draped Marchesa Spring 2010 tulle strapless gown with an embroidered floral detail.

We picked Camilla Belle for shunning the easy options and going for this bold Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 puffball dress with a beaded detail on the shoulders and waist.

Many of you like us were scared that someone like Lady GaGa would put us of loving this collection by wearing it first, so when Camilla hit the red carpet at the 2012 premiere we were all relieved and delightfully surprised at the ease in which she pulled it off.

“2012” LA Premiere

Only Camilla Belle can out do herself in the space of a week.

She started off looking divine in Jason Wu, and last night she looked divalicious in Alexander McQueen.

If you’re anything like me you have been scared of tthe magnificent McQueen Spring 2010 collection getting into the wrong hands. Thankfully this is not the case.

With the styling the looks felt quite hard on the runway, but Camilla brings a softness to her multi-coloured dress with the bustle skirt and beaded shoulders.

Thandie Newton is the latest celebrity to join the Prabal Gurung fan club after Leighton Meester joined yesterday.

The stunning actress never disappoints.

She walked the red carpet wearing a black and white strapless Prabal Gurung Spring 2010 brush painted rose print draped dress.

As you can see from the other Gurung dresses, a bow accent is featured on this dress.

Had Dania Ramirez not worn a Herve Leger Spring 2009 dress we have seen countless times on reality stars and D list celebrities I would’ve said that I loved this dress on her.

At this point I’m so over this dress she’s lucky to be featured.

I love Amanda Peet’s stunning white gown, but it feels a tad out of place on this red carpet were everyone else opted for shorter sassier looks.

Whenever I see turquoise necklaces I always think of  Eva Mendes at the Golden Globes.

2009 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Event

Eva Mendes looked incredibly chic wearing a lavender Christian Dior Resort 2010 polka dot dress, worn with a cute white bow accented belt.

She could’ve been obvious and paired her dress with white accessories like the runway, but she instead wore dove grey heels and carried a silver clutch.

Jessica Alba wore a very simple Prada Resort 2010 dress, but I really love this look.

She’s making me eat my words about “boring black dresses” because she looks outstanding.

Bow accented heels and flawless make-up complete this stunning look and have me keeping this look in consideration for BDOTW.

Jordana Brewster was another favourite.  She was very much on the opposite end of the colour spectrum wearing a creme and ultramarine Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2009 dress.

I love the flutter detail around the arm openings, but the shoes are too clunky for this dress.

The runway shoes would have been too matchy matchy, but I would have preferred them to what Jordana is currently wearing.

*Sighs*

I hope Camilla Belle continues to never have a day off looking fabulous.  It would be a very sad day indeed.

Some of you may think what’s the big deal, she’s just wearing a Jason Wu blue dress.

I’d say look at her, she’s naturally glowing.  Her accessories complement her stunning pleated dress.  Not a single hair is out of place and her make-up is flawless.

Yes she should’ve ditched the fringed bag for this picture, but it’s a small detail when everything else looks so perfect.

Most celebrities grow out of their obsessions, but Diane Kruger is still loving her black bows.

This was evident from her bow accented blue blouse which she wore with navy shorts.

For most this would only be acceptable as an off-duty look, but Diane can stand shoulder to shoulder with Eva Mendes in her Dior dress and still look equally chic.

That’s why we all adore her.

2009 Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style Awards Honoring Princess Grace Kelly Of Monaco

Camilla Belle looked stunning and elegant wearing a Marchesa Spring 2010 magnificent dress.

This kind of dress could’ve easily gone so wrong, but the embroidered white tulle cocktail dress with a feather hem and sleeves makes her look like an elegant swan rather than Big Bird.

Black strappy heels prevent this look from being too costumey.

This is second time in a row I haven’t been jumping up and down with exciting with what Demi Moore has worn on the red carpet.

On this occasion her asymmetrical Zac Posen Spring 2010 black dress looks better on the runway, to her halter neck version.

Angie Harmon pairs grey thigh-high Rodate Fall 2009 boots with a maroon wide neck Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 dress.

I like the pieces separately, but together it’s a bit of a disaster.

If this is Angie’s attempt at being edgy, I would say stick to being slightly predictable.

Gabrielle Union was my second favourite on this red carpet.

The beautiful actress wore an ivory plunging dress, with draped details on the hips.

Normally she faded into the background, but on this occasion she stands out.

Lisa Edelstein looked effortless chic wearing a black strapless Paule Ka gown adorned with a nude bow.

Debra Messing opted for a pile it high hair ‘do when she walked the red carpet wearing a black long sleeved dress with embellished cuffs.

For a Style event, I’m very much underwhelmed by most on this red carpet.

2009 Freedom Award

This is a very rare moment.

I don’t really like Demi Moore in this Lanvin Spring 2010 draped gown.

The gown is very sexy on the runway with the thigh-high split, but I don’t get that same vibe from Demi and I ALWAYS get that vibe from Demi.

The one-sleeved gown is just hanging off her not really saying anything to me, on the runway the look felt more powerful.

Camilla Belle proves that her day trip to Paris for Fashion Week to see the Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 presentation was not completely wasted, as she returned with this stunning black LV Fall 2009 sleeveless dress.

I love the texture of the dress which stops it from being another boring black dress, and the way the skirt becomes narrow at the hem.

Cancan heels and dash of red on the lips complete this look.

Carla Gugino is wearing a beautiful silk mini dress with an exquisite jeweled neckline, but she sticks a knife in my heart by not only wearing tights, but tights WITH peep-toes.

Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 Front Row & After Party

Front Row

I will assume Leighton Meester traveled all the way to Paris for the Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 presentation, as I haven’t yet seen her front row at any other shows.

Despite the long flight and jet-lag Leighton knocks it out of the fashion ball park in floral Resort 2010 dress with a ruffle detail cascading down the front.

She paired her dress with a belted vest from the same collection.

I love everything about this look.  Even the sandals paired with socks, but that grey bag just makes me shiver.

A cute clutch or no bag at all would have been preferred.

I’m sure many of you will go crazy over Freida Pinto’s Fall 2009 look consisting of an electric blue jersey top paired with a matching layered chiffon skirt.

I think the look is just OK.

I’m more drawn to the bright colour, the open-toe boots and bag, as the hair just ruins the look for me plus the top is a little tight about the bust.

I saved going gaga for Camilla Belle who wore my favourite look from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 collection.

Camilla never has a day off look fabulous, but I just wish she hadn’t worn those shades.

Katy Perry wore a metallic puff sleeve top which wasn’t presented on the runway paired with a black pencil skirt.

I love the contrast between the futuristic top and the classic skirt.

Natalia Vodianova decided not to belt her LV Fall 2009 nude dress with a textured black yoke.

I like the look both ways.

Rinko Kikuchi is the second person to rock this LV Fall 2009 blue and pink dress with a black lace overlay.

I’m glad she wasn’t so bold to wear it as presented on the runway, as we all know Rinko likes to take a risk.

Last season Gong Li arrived at the LV show wearing a chic denim look.

This time opted for a sophisticated black coat/dress from the Fall 2009 collection which she paired with Cancan heels.

Even thought Anastasia Gorbacheva watered down the LV Fall 2009 runway look, she did it for all the right reason.

I really love this look. Those pattern leggings are gorgeous.

Daisy Lowe also wore the LV Cancan heels, but paired hers with an ivory skirt and black blazer.

This look is surprisingly demure considering she wore leopard print pants at Dolce & Gabbana’s show.

I thought she would’ve loved to have worn the adventurous pieces at LV.

Maybe Zoe Saldana was down in the dumps as the paparazzi failed to recognise her when I saw her in Paris, because her smile seems strained.

The Star Trek star opted for a rather cute playsuit with a ribboned neck tie.

After-Party

Zoe Saldana got back into her groove posing fiercely at the show’s after-party wearing a LV Fall 2009 dress.

I love her gold accessories, the ruffles sleeved and the one-poufy shoulder detail, but were’s the pom-pom?

Camilla Belle opted for a grey knotted and ruched LV Fall 2009 dress for her after-party look.

Love the hair and make-up with this look.

Natalia Vodianova arrived with her husband Justin Portman wearing another nude and black LV Fall 2009 look.

This time it was a velvet mini dress was paired with patterned tights and Cancan heels.

Gong Li wore this navy LV Fall 2009 dress with a poufy hem.

The dress is gorgeous, but the boots are a tad much when the dress has so much detail.

I guess she decided on the boots as torrential rain, thunder and lighting hit Paris last night.

Thankfully my train was pulling out of Gare du Nord on the 2013 as this started to happen.
