We were so blindly obsessed with predicting Lady GaGa and others would be the first to wear the Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 armadillo heels, that we didn’t consider the MOST like person to take them from the runway to reality – Daphne Guinness.
How could we have not even considered her?
The heiress donned the impossible-to-walk-in heels when she hosted this event with Marc Jacobs last night.
Her crazy heels were paired with an aqua marine bubble skirt dress from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 collection.
I love that gold bejeweled neckline, but hate that silver metal belt she paired with it. These kind of belts are very much her signature, and they are usually Alaia.
Apart from the belt, my only disappointment is that she didn’t go for one of the embellished armadillo heels.
This may seem strange but every time I look at Daphne, I think this is what Victoria Beckham will look like in about 20 years time.
Many of you have expressed how much you are O.V.E.R Balmain, or that you didn’t get the craze to begin with.
Doesn’t Selita Ebanks make you want to forgive and forget?
As always the Victoria’s Secret model does just to Balmain.
She looks outstanding in this dress, her skin is glowing and the colour is divine on her.
As much as I love this dress, I think her J.Mendel white gown from earlier in the week was a far superior look to be included in the BDOTW poll.
Cassie looks peeved. Maybe she’s still waiting for her ridiculous hairstyle to grow out.
The singer wore a long sleeved LBD with cut-outs on the side, paired with a black pair of Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte Fall 2009 thigh-high boots.
Whitney Port is very much starting to dress like a sophisticated New Yorker. Gone is the boho style she loved for so long.
“The City” star was back in town after a break from filming and she looks quite breath-taking wearing a LBD from the Rachel Comey Spring 2009 collection.
The dress has cut-out sides and peplum on the hips.
It looks like she has been hanging out with Olivia Palmero too much, as her hair has been styled in Olivia favourite look.
A stunning pearl Erickson Beamon necklace and Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toes completed this fabulous look.
“Gossip Girl” actress Jessica Szohr wore a cute and girlie lace mini dress from the Gossip Girl inspired Anna Sui for Target collection, but she toughened up her look with a military Temperley London jacket and chunky jewelery.
Like everyone else who wore at least one thing from LV, Jessica opted for the Fall 2009 platform heels.
There’s lot going on with the mix of patterns but I quite like this look.
Miranda Kerr embraced summer wearing a sleeveless satin dress with oversized ruffles.
She teamed her dress with black ankle-strap peep-toe heels and a gold Louis Vuitton African Queen clutch.
Best Minimalist Award
Whilst everyone seemed to be opting for lavish embellished pieces, Zoe Saldana looked stunning wearing a white one-sleeved Calvin Klein dress with a cut-out detail on the hip and a daring slash to the thigh.
Brian Atwood heels completed the look.
Most Ridiculous Award
In the attempt to grab headlines Melody Thornton comes of looking ridiculous in her Alexander McQueen dress.
This ombre fringed dress with a nude body-stocking would be great as a stage costume, but on the red carpet it just doesn’t work.
The asymmetrical fringed details don’t cover enough of the body-stocking leaving her exposed.
She really didn’t think her look through.
Most Safe Award
I’m really not liking Taraji P. Henson mullet, but I do love the elegant black Kaufman Franco one-sleeved gown with leather strapped detail on the back.
The unfortunately thing here is that the backless nature of the gown reveals her lower back tattoo.
I would’ve preferred her to wear something funkier for this occasion.
Trying WAY Too Hard Award
Cassie used to be so sweet, so this harder image to rival Rihanna just doesn’t work for me.
