When Carla Bruni Met Princess Letizia of Spain


With Michelle Obama back in the US, Carla Bruni no doubt breathed a sigh of relief not have to share her ‘First Lady of Fashion’ title.

You can just imagine Carla saying, “here we go again”, as she arrived at a lunch yesterday with Princess Letizia of Spain looking drop dead gorgeous.

Carla arrived wearing a very conservative navy Christian Dior dress, with Louboutin kitten heels (aaaargghh), whereas Princess Letizia, arrived wearing eggplant tiered dress by Spanish designer Felipe Varela, with lust worthy lilac croc heels…proper heels, with a platform and everything.

Carla looks appropriate, and appears to have done her best to not outshine her host, but am I alone in thinking she has lost her sparkle, or has the competition just got that much better?

Carla used to wow me. Now, not so much.

Who Wore Chanel Better? Kate Bosworth or Carla Bruni-Sarkozy


Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is so captivating that she leaves royalty and heads of state drooling in her wake. When she attended the A.R.T-JOY-LOVE Charity Gala this month, she wore a black Chanel dress, which had a white satin front bib, with kitten heels. *shudders*

Despite Carla impeccable style, I prefer this Chanel dress on Kate Bosworth. Kate wore this dress to the 2008 Glamour Women of the Year Awards in New York last year.

I think the dress suits Kate better, she accessorized well, and she didn’t wear kitten heels.

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.

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. ?
