“So You Think You Can Dance” – Cat Deeley In Lanvin

On Wednesday night Cat Deeley hosted the Top 6 live performance show of FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance”.

The British host has great style. She’s proved this on many occasions, but I question her judgment with this Lanvin Spring 2010 dress.

My problem is not the nude spaghetti strapped Lanvin dress with layers of red chiffon, but her decision to wear a dress like this on a  TV show when the audience just won’t get it.

A dress like this deserves a red carpet in Cannes, LA, New York, Paris or London where we could appreciate it on a grander scale.

Cat opted to wear her hair back and paired her dress with nude Jimmy Choo Private sandals.

What do you think?

Mulberry’s LA Pool Party

Emma Hill, Mulberry’s Creative Director, hosted a dinner in LA last night to introduced Hollywood starlets to the Mulberry Fall 2010 collection.

The dinner was followed by a pool party with special guest DJ Alexa Chung.

I’m not Alexa’s biggest fan, but I do love her look.

Whilst Rachel Bilson is wearing her denim shorts with simple tees, Alexa opted for a sexy satin Mulberry shirt with the sleeves rolled up.

It not a combo I would’ve thought of, but it really works for Alexa.

Her look was paired with black strappy sandals and her Mulberry leopard print ‘Alexa’ bag.

Cat Deeley wore a sequined LBD with a leather jacket and Mulberry Maggie booties.

Kate Bosworth let her accessories do the talking by sporting a Mulberry ‘Margret’ leopard print calf skin bag.

Shenae Grimes was my favourite at this event.

She looked cute in a Mulberry chain dress dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

I much prefer the her champagne coloured dress to the runway black.  I love this look so much I’ll ignore her ankle boots.

Molly Sims wore Mulberry Raglan dress which had a wild print all over. The dress paired with muted silver heels.

I love the flare of Jessica Stroup’s Mulberry skirt with crush sequins, but I don’t think she didn’t the skirt much justice with the halter and cardi.

“So You Think You Can Dance” – Cat Deeley In Diane von Furstenberg & Vivienne Westwood Anglomania

British TV presenter Cat Deeley hosts the America TV show “So You Think You Can Dance” which had a live show yesterday.

One of her looks was this beautiful Diane von Furstenberg Asuka shift dress.

This dress from the Spring 2010 collection has a very striking exotic print, cut-out details and wood beading.

I love that she opted for rich earth-tone accessories which included a chocolate belt and bronze gladiator heels.

I didn’t quite get the hair accessory.

Maybe she was trying to style it like the runway.

For her second look Cat opted for a Vivienne Westwood Anglomania check dress.

I wasn’t particularly keen on this dress, mostly because Cat looks like a grown woman wearing a school girls uniform from a posh private school.

The look doesn’t work for me at all, but I did like her hair and the jewel accessory on her shoulder.

Which look do you favour?

2nd Annual Genlux Britweek Designer of the Year Fashion Awards – Cat Deeley In Matthew Williamson

Cat Deeley was among the many guests to attend the “Genlux Britweek Designer of the Year Fashion Awards” which was held in LA this weekend.

She was there to pay tribute to her designer friend Matthew Williamson who was named ‘BritWeek Designer of the Year’ at event.

I couldn’t think of a better person to restore faith in British fashion than Cat Deeley.

Apart from being beautiful and having legs that never end, she also has great style.

She wore an asymmetrical digital print dress from Matthew Williamson’s Fall 2010 collection, which she paired with a black and gold Mulberry oversized Ava suede clutch.

Her clutch was complemented with black and gold Jimmy Choo strappy sandals.

I love everything about this look which is flawless and effortless.

Runway To Sidewalk – Cat Deeley In Stella McCartney

Cat Deeley has been in the US presenting “So You Think You Can Dance?” so we haven’t seen her much in the UK.

She was back last week and seen out on the town attending a jewelery party at the Connaught hotel in London with beau Jack Huston.

She had a ’70s vibe about her wearing a blue silk Stella McCartney Resort 2010 jumpsuit with bow tie.

She teamed it with black pointed heels, and a black white faux fur coat which she carried.

Her red-carpet dressing is equally impressive as her off-duty style.

I love this look, and I was so grateful she didn’t wear it with the runway belt.

Social Events Of The Week

“A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s” Benefit, New York

Whilst trying to keep up with Fashion Week, LeeAnn sent me a note to tell me to make sure I looked at the Dries van Noten Spring 2010 collection.

I’m glad she did because I instantly fell in love with the ethnic prints and the one-sleeved blazers.

I often wondered who would be the first to wear this collection, and that honour went to Julianne Moore.

She looked fabulous in this hard to pull off ensemble.

Her ethnic print wrap dress was paired with a black blazer trimmed with a white strip to complete this unusually chic look.

Granted it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love it.

Wow.

Katharine McPhee blows me away wearing a Marchesa Fall 2009 one shoulder sculpted dress.

I’m even loving the hair with this look.

Either I’m coming down with something or Katharine just hit her first home run.

BDOTW contender.

Alexa Chung opted for a cheap yet chic Topshop studded one-shoulder dress paired with booties.

She arrived wearing a questionable leopard print coat.

‘Late Show With David Letterman’, New York

My first reaction was that I didn’t like Ashley Greene in this Bottega Veneta Resort 2010 striped suit, but after so many great red carpet dresses this look feels refreshing.

It also shows that both Ashley and her stylist are thinking outside the box, and not playing it safe.

My main problem is actually the striped shirt, because the suit is not so bad.

I think I would’ve loved this look if the shirt was a solid colour, or if Ashley had worn the same suit Penelope Cruz wore back in July.

London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, London

Anna Friel loves Antonio Berardi as she has worn his pieces many times before.

Not so many times that she needs an intervention like Leona Lewis does from Vivienne Westwood, but enough to know she appreciates his stunning designs.

The textured dress had an asymmetrical chiffon detail that moved beautifully on the runway.

Black pumps complete the look.

Christmas Illuminations Launch On The Champs-Elysees, Paris

Just last week I was complaining that we haven’t seen enough of Balenciaga’s Fall 2009 collection on the red carpet, and here we have Charlotte Gainsbourg upping the count to make 3 following Carine Roitfeld and Salma Hayek.

The actress arrived at this event wearing one of the printed plunging blouses paired with the lace bandeau, leather pants and peep-toe heels.

Aching cool as always.

“Brothers” New York Screening

For some reason I just can’t fall in love with Natalie Portman wearing this cute Jason Wu Spring 2010 strapless mini dress.

The dress has all the ingredients to make Natalie shine: the ruffles, the colour, the length and the contrasting waist belt, but it gets no love from me and I can’t figure out why.

The actress paired her dress with Aldo purple heels.

Emma Roberts opted for a Miu Miu Resort 2010 summery dress brought down with thick tights.

Navyboot Store Opening, Germany

Monica Cruz hasn’t yet met a Herve Leger bandaged dress she didn’t like.

This is 3 in a row.

Before Cheryl Cole, Cat Deeley was the nations sweetheart.

The TV presenter arrived at this event wearing Givenchy Holly strappy leather heels with a Preen Matt Lightening dress.

If you are thinking the dress looks a bit awkward, that’s because the thick strap on Cat’s right shoulder – as we are looking at it – should be on her left shoulder.

Regardless she still looks fabulous.
