Michelle Obama Wears Azzedine Alaia


President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama arrived for a cultural event during the NATO summit in Baden-Baden this evening.

Michelle Obama has embraced many designer this week. Tonight she wore a classic black Azzedine Alaia dress, with a ruffled skirt which had a tulle underlay.

The heels have gone up a few inches, which I’m thankful for, because flats or kitten heels wouldn”t have looked as elegant with this dress.

Before covering up with a cropped cardigan, she exposed her arms, which for some reason has caused great debate in the past.

I’m hoping you guys will like this look, because the overall feeling is that you have been disappointed by her this week.


Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was also at this event. She was wearing a custom-made Christian Dior Fall 2009 sheath dress.

The dress shares the same embroidered detail, as a jacket which appeared on the runway.

The Dior flats again, kill this look for me.

Social Events Of The Week

“American Character: A Photographic Journey” Launch Event, New York

Lucy Liu has swapped her black YSL Trib Two’s, for a grey suede pair, which we saw Victoria Beckham wear recently.

Lucy’s grey heels worked with the feathered details on her Rachel Roy Fall 2008 dress. The pleated neckline is really interesting.

This is not your average red carpet dress, which is what I love about Lucy, she’s not afraid to take a risk.

Mena Suravi opted for this mocha Christian Siriano Fall 2009 one-shouldered mini dress, which she wore with very fierce strappy heels.

March Of Dimes 34th Annual Beauty Ball, New York

Vanessa Williams wears a well worn Alexander McQueen Fall 2007 strapless chiffon green gown. Both Jessica Alba and Mary J Blige wore this back in 2007.

Vanessa gives her dress some shape, with a studded belt from the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2008 collection.

Does this woman age? She is so flawless.

Fergie debuted her new brunette do, which I really like on her.

Her dress is cute, but those Jimmy Choo heels are fierce.

“Fast & Furious” LA Premiere

Michelle Rodriguez is surprisingly wearing a dress. This is a very rare occasion indeed.

The dress gives the illusion of nudity, but it has an underlay covering the lace details.

This is a very brave choice, as we know flash blubs could have exposed more than we wished to see.

Jordana Brewster’s pink Burberry dress is simply divine. I adore the colour, the draping on the skirt, and the peek-a-boo bodice.

She completes her look with Jimmy Choo Corsica nude gladiator heels.

“Race To Witch Mountain”, LA Premiere

Carla Gugino wore a bright yellow Michael Kors dress with gold accessories including Christian Louboutin heel, and gold Jimmy Choo clutch.

Everything about this look is perfect, excluding her hair ‘do. I have never been a fan of hair plied on top like that, because it reminds me of a pineapple.

AnnaSophia Robb wore a purple Nicole Miller criss-crossed haltered dress.

A very cute dress, for the young actress.

Social Events Of The Week

French President’s Official Visit, Mexico

French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife, Carla Bruni, attended an official welcoming ceremony at the National Palace, in Mexico this week.

The First Lady of France’s style is undeniably chic, as she injects her unique brand of sensuous femininity without appearing too sexy, wearing a blush-pink Dior skirt suit.

I’m adoring everything about this look apart from those darn kitten heels. I understand that she doesn’t want to overshadow her husband. But no matter what she wears, she will, so she should bin the boring heels, and bring out the killer heels.

“17 Again” Sydney Premiere

Taylor Swift walked the red carpet in a beautiful white Rachel Gilbert Amber halter neck dress, with gold Fendi heels.

I adore the white and diamante embellished details around the bust.

I’m very surprised she’s not a silver or gold metallic dress, which she tends to favour.

BAFTA Video Games Awards 2009

Kirsty Gallacher wore a blue body-con halter Preen dress, which was worn by Rihanna last month.

This is a strong look, which needs sexy figure, and great shoes. Kirsty fails with the shoes.

This dress deserves more than plain black pumps. Rihanna showed us that with her Nicholas Kirkwood strappy heels.

Monsters Vs. Aliens Premiere, Germany

When Reese Witherspoon got divorced, she started to explore her sexier side. Now I feel she has reverted back to her old self, which isn’t a bad thing.

She looked very sophisticated wearing a teal Valentino satin dress, with an embellished collar, and grey waist band to this event. Her look was complete with matching satin bow peep-toes and flawless make-up.

“The Great Buck Howard” New York Screening

Emily Blunt’s grey suit, is very ‘office interview’. It doesn’t have the same charm as Amy Adams’ white suit yesterday.

Her silvery grey satin blouse seems to be fraying as well, just to further put me off this look.

Selita Ebanks wears an oversized ivory blazer, which almost totally covers her cute sequined mini dress, which really spoils the look for me.

What I am lusting after, are her bubblegum pink Christian Louboutin Decoltissimo pointed pumps.

“Duplicity” London Film Premiere

Yet another black ensemble for Julia Roberts. I would like act surprised, but like Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie, she’s been here before.

Social Events Of The Week

Valentino Reception Honoring New Yorkers For Children, New York

Heidi Klum was the first to wear Victoria Beckham Collection earlier this week, now her fellow Victoria’s Secret supermodel pal Selita Ebanks has.

Selita wore this Spring 2009 strapless dress, which I tried on and fell in love with last year.

The strapless tulle trimmed corseted navy pencil dress, has sequined hip panel and a matching sash at the waist.

It looks like these models may start to out do Mrs Beckham in her own designs.

Women’s World Awards, Vienna

Elle Macpherson wore the same Roberto Cavalli green gown, with gold details that Carla Guginos had worn to the LA Watchmen premiere earlier this week.

Her gold accessories included a Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch.

Taking a break from her much favoured black, Monica Bellucci shows us how beautiful she is wearing a lilac satin Christian Dior Spring 2008 gown, which hugs her gorgeous womanly curves.

The Alliance For Children’s Rights Annual Awards Dinner Gala, LA

Angie Harmon wore a red and black printed Behnaz Sarafpour Resort 2009 dress, with a contrast black jersey tank.

A.R.T-JOY-LOVE Charity Gala For Association Hadassah, Paris

It seems like Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has put the high heels away for good, even then her shorter husband is not around.

With her kitten heels, Carla wore a black Chanel dress, with an ivory bib.

I wasn’t going to pay Elsa Zylberstein much attention, until I clocked her Balenciaga studded gladiator heels. ?

Fashion Dinner For Aids


I think this has to be one of the best dressed events of the year so far.

Diane Kruger will always – in my eyes – be one of the top 10 best dressed female celebrities in the world. I was not a fan of the Nina Ricci Spring 2009 collection, but trust Diane Kruger to make me fall in love.

Talk about bringing something to life.

This gown with a rise and fall hem, is absolutely stunning on Diane. The nude gown with multi coloured prints, really stands out. The cap sleeves barely reveal her shoulders, which is quite sexy, and less in your face than cleavage.

Her look is complete with a vibrant purple clutch, and strappy heels.

I don’t think I can gush about how much I love this enough.


Not only did Mischa Barton get a pair of Elie Saab Spring 2009 Couture heels, but she also got to wear this exquisite Elie Saab couture mint green gown.

When this gown was presented 2 days ago, I was attracted to the floral appliqués around the shoulders and bodice. I love how Mischa has taken this dress from an off-the-shoulder gown, to an asymmetric gown, but a part of me is very disappointed that this dress is now out of the running for the Oscars.

No one would knowingly pick this dress for the big O, now that Mischa has worn it, with all due respect to her.


Dita von Teese opted for a cocktail dress from the same collection.

The ice blue satin plunging dress was covered in very intricate silver embroidery, which really sparkles. Those details are no doubt the reason why Dita opted to keep her jewels to a bare minimum.

Her Louboutin’s sparkled as gloriously as her dress, and as you would expect Dita’s hair is immaculately styled, without a single strand out of place.

The look was complete with her trademark bold ruby red lips.


Milla Jovovich also wore a straight-off-the-runway gown from Elie Saab’s Spring 2009 Couture collection.

She opted for a less bling-out gown. But the beauty of this gown is in its simplicity, and the subtle details of the shimmering cap sleeves and criss cross detail on the waist.

The dove grey works well with her skin-tone, and the clutch is the perfect compliment.


French Model Laetitia Casta opted for a cutesy type Louis Vuitton black dress with a bows ruching her shoulder and skirt.

She may have picked a Resort dress, but he added a bit of an edge to her look with Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 heels.


Carla Bruni, France’s First Lady, took a night off wearing Dior to wear a stunning purple strapless YSL column gown, from the Edition Soir collection.

In all the pictures she has her clutch covering her gown, which is a shame because the majority of the detail is where her clutch is being held.


Vanessa Paradis pink strapless mini dress, is also covered by her woolly mammoth pink coat, which is also a shame because the pink dress looks heavenly against her skin.
