InStyle Magazine Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Benefit

Kerry Washington was a picture of perfection as she paired her Malandrino Spring 2009 nude top, decorated with a multi chain detail draping from the neckline, with a slate grey skirt.

She accessorized her look with a beautiful quilted clutch and metallic heels.

I would’ve never thought grey and nude would work so well together.

Socialite Helen Lee Schifter opted for a more casual look pairing a plaid Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 tunic top with denim shorts.

Her tunic is accented with a striped lurex belt from the same collection.

I really love this look.  I wish more stars had been brave enough to experiment with this collection.

Kelly Ripa wore a super cute paisley print Etro Spring 2009 maxi dress for this occasion.  Just adding a few bangles and flip flops to complete her look.

Blake Lively has said on many occasions that she doesn’t have a stylist, and on this evidence I do believe her.

No stylist would pair a Spring time striped shirt and white skirt with burgundy pumps.

From the ankles up this is a great look, but girlfriend really needs to practice a more red carpet poses in the mirror.

Who Wore Malandrino Better? Catherine Malandrino or Cucu Diamante

Designer Catherine Malandrino invited many fabulous guests including Mary J Blige, Dita von Teese and Garcelle Beavuious, to the grand opening of the Catherine Malandrino Maison Store in West Hollywood, last October.

The designer picked the best gown from her Spring 2009 collection, which was a very elegant nude gown, with multi chain detail draping from the neckline.

Singer Cucu Diamante, who could easily pass as a distant relative of Catherine Malandrino, as they have the same look and colouring, wore the same dress to the People En Espanol’s “50 Most Beautiful” event in New York earlier this month, in a slate grey colour.

Both woman look outstanding, as they picked wisely. Catherine soft and feminine. Cucu darker and more mysterious, with a pop of deep pink on her lips.

Catherine wins for me, as she glows in her on-trend nude gown.

Catherine Malandrino Maison Private Dinner


Sophia Bush was one of the chosen few, to attend a private dinner hosted by designer Catherine Malandrino.

Of course the One Tree Hill beauty was wearing Malandrino’s outstanding designs.

She looked stunning in a blush georgette chain top, with black pencil skirt from the Malandrino Spring 2009 collection.

You may remember that Catherine wore the gown version of this chain top, to a similar party she held last year.


Catherine Malandrino glowed in a pink deep v-neck chiffon draped gown with pleated details, which was worn with much fierceness by the stunning model Sessilee Lopez.


Mary J Blige and Keisha Whitaker glowed in their dresses.

Mary wore a gold v-neck chic dress from the Malandrino Resort 2009 collection, whilst Keisha wore a white and gold print Malandrino kaftan over a white playsuit.

Runway To "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" Arizona Premiere – Lynn Collins In Malandrino


Lynn Collins plays Hugh Jackman’s love interest in the new film X Men Origins: Wolverine, which had a it’s US premiere in Arizona this week.

I didn’t know who Lynn was before this premiere, but she will definitely stick in my memory after wearing this stunning canary yellow satin Malandrino Resort 2009 dress, as I love the colour and adore the neckline

Much like Zoe Saldana on her Star Trek promotion, Lynn is the only woman, so the way to stand out was by wearing this traffic-stopping, summer fresh, figure-hugging dress, which she teamed with chunky heels with a pattern platform, and a chunky bangle.

My only criticism is the her feet seem to have over shot her heels.
