Who Wore Brian Lichtenberg Better? Kim Kardashian, Ciara or Eva Pigford

This Brian Lichtenberg Fall 2009 shoulder padded dress complete with hood, proves itself to be a perfect party-piece.

Contesting for the WWIB crown here we have three strong contenders.

Ciara arrived at her album launch party at the “M2 Ultra Lounge” in New York City with pulled back hair to show off her amazing bone structure and heighten the impact of those exaggerated shoulders.

Kim Kardashian choosing the sparkly number when she hit the red carpet at TAO in Las Vegas to celebrate her 29th birthday party with her sister.

She copied her BFF Ciara, by adding volume to her hair and pulling it back into a sleek ponytail.

America’s Next Top Model winner Eva Pigford…or Eva ‘Marcille’…gave a Grace-Jones style slant to the look by wearing the hood to a Halloween party.

Both Eva and Kim opted for a seasonal shoe-boot to give a punky edge to their glamour.

Although I’m not too sure about the crazy make-up, Eva wins this WWIB for me. She looks full of fun and confidence and the boots are a stylish touch.

Demi Lovato also wears this same dress at several points in her video for her new single “Remember December”.

Oi Fashion Rocks Brazil

Fashion Rocks was held in Brazil for the first time this year.

The event featured four international fashion designers, including Marc Jacobs, Versace, Givenchy, and Calvin Klein with live performances from Mariah Carey, Estelle, P.Diddy, Grace Jones and Ciara.

The line-up also featured four national fashion designers – Lenny, Andre Lima, Alexandre Herchcovith and Lino Vilaventura paired with four performers including Lulu Santos, Daniela Mercury, Wanessa and Ja Rule.

Donatella Versace wore 2 gowns from her recent Spring 2010 collection.

The first was a lilac strapless gown which she had modified by removing the white details on the bodice, and lowering the central split.

This colour is fabulous on her.

The second was an asymmetrical angelic white gown with silver triangle shaped embellishments.

Again the split was lowered and the cut-out detail on the side of the gown on the runway, doesn’t appear on Donatella’s gown.

This was my favourite gown of the two.

Fernanda Lima hosted the show looking amazing wearing the same red Versace Fall 2009 gown Blake Lively wore to the Emmy’s.

She looked equally, if not more spectacular in this jaw-dropping gown.

Isabeli Fontana wowed wearing a canary yellow Atelier Versace Fall 2007 halter gown.

I thought the only model who could provide this kind of jaw-dropping moment was Gisele Bundchen.

She’s back.

After months of quite boring black ensembles, Estelle was back to her colourful best wearing a very interesting futuristic Manish Arora Fall 2009 dress of yellow, orange, red maroon and black.

The textured dress was paired with a grey Fendi clutch and Christian Louboutin Calypso heels as worn by Blake Lively last week.

Fernanda Motta and Alessandra Ambrosio arrived at this event together.

Fernanda wore a black satin Versace Fall 2009 wrap dress, which is the same dress we saw on Janet Jackson recently, whilst Alessandra showed off her enviable figure in a taupe halter neck gown embellished with precious stones.

Ciara confirmed via her twitter page that she is going to be Riccardo Tisci new muse for Givenchy, so it was no surprised to see her decked out in a Givenchy Spring 2009 ensemble.

Her embellished cold-shoulder top was paired with a leather pocketed mini skirt to show-off those toned legs.

Social Events Of The Weekend

Conde Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards, New York

Mary Louise Parker has been getting in touch with her flirty side lately, as she’s been wearing a lot of shorter cocktail dresses.

On this occasion she picked a Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 black and white floral dress which is modified from the runway version.

Parker’s dress is narrower on the skirt and is off-the-shoulder instead of one-shouldered.

I really love this look.  It’s so relaxed and fun as you would expect from any Marc Jacobs piece.

Kim Kardashian Celebrates Her 29th Birthday At TAO, Las Vegas

Some of you have accused Kim Kardashian of ‘brand hopping’ i.e. the second a label is hot, Kim’s wearing it.

We’ve seen her do with with Herve Leger, Balmain, Altuzarra and now Brian Lichtenberg.

I personally don’t really have a problem with this because she appears to be doing this earlier on, and not at the point when Heidi Montag has discovered the brand.

At her 26th birthday party this weekendshe was the golden girl glowing wearing a Brian Litchenberg Fall 2009 shouldered padded hooded mini dress, paired with black ankle boots.

It appears my prays for the end of the ankle boots trend are yet to be answered.

BFF Ciara was there, looking sexy in a Rock & Republic spiked leather jacket over a velvet playsuit.

Without even trying Ciara out does her host.

This girl is to gorgeous for words.

4th Annual Black Girls Rock! Awards, New York

Naomi Campbell looked radiant wearing a sexy Alexander Wang one-shouldered bandage dress, which she paired with a furry cape.

The cape may seem a bit OTT, but if anyone can make it work it’s Miss Naomi.

“Avatar” Stage Greeting, Japan

Zoe Saldana looked very elegant wearing a black Giambattista Valli strapless bustier dress, with ruffled detail on her hip.

Everything is perfect here from her hair to her jewels to her dress.

Amy Adams wore the gown version of this dress to the SAG Awards earlier this year.

The First Annual Noble Humanitarian Awards, LA

Nicole Richie looks heavenly wearing cream chiffon Jasmine Di Milo gown.

Motherhood clearly agrees with her, she’s glowing.

Teri Hatcher opted for a SuperDupa white Hugo Boss suit with gold peep-toes.

I would be petrified to wearing anything that pristine.

Who Wore Gryphon Better? Ciara or Serena Williams

Ciara attended the Los Angeles Premiere of “Orphan” in July wearing a Gryphon sequin racerback tank paired with leather pants and black pumps.

This was back in the day when she was sporting a shorter cropped ‘do.

Serena Williams wore the same sparkling tank to the “Whip It” premiere last month, opting to wear hers with a black blazer, cropped pants, black heels and gold accessories.

I love way both ladies wore this look. Ciara’s look was edgy, whereas Serena look was very smart.

I’m not a big fan of leather pants, especially when worn in summer so I will give the win to Serena.

The Best From The Front Row @ New York Fashion Week

Thakoon

Ciara was easily one of my favourites at Fashion Week.

She looked so beautiful wearing a Thakoon wool crepe shift dress which had a contrast black chiffon lining and trim, paired with Louboutin pumps.

Donna Karan

Milla Jovovich’s striped Donna Karan Resort 2009 dress is so chic paired with silver pumps.

Altuzarra

I guess Altuzarra weren’t loaning out clothes for their star guests because Leighton Meester wore an eggplant Emilio de la Morena Fall 2009 dress with Proenza Schouler lace-up ankle boots…

…whilst Rachel McAdams wore a navy and white striped Boy by Band of Outsiders Spring 2010 skirt with a black top.

Charlotte Ronson

Jessica Stroup wore a flirty floral Charlotte Ronson Spring 2010 strapless dress which is so exclusive it wasn’t even seen in the Spring 2010 presentation.

She paired her dress with snake-skin strappy sandals.

Marc Jacobs

Lady GaGa wears the same Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 black cap sleeved dress embellished with jeweled stones, which Miss Piggy wore recently.

I wonder who the winner of that WWIB poll will be?

Tommy Hilfiger

I just love this red dress which Taylor Swift pairs with Stuart Weitzman black bow heels.

So vibrant.

Preen

Becki Newton wore a Preen Mixed Mono dress under a black blazer.

I would’ve loved to have seen this dress without the blazer to see more of its multi-print panel design.

Proenza Schouler

Leighton Meester doesn’t look to happy in her Proenza Schouler Resort 2010 ensemble and I don’t blame her.

Max Azria

Lucy Liu was elegant and classy as always wearing a cream fitted Max Azria dress.

Maggie Q’s Max Azria vibrant yellow dress really pops on her.

I love how she brings this strapless draped dress to life.

24.08.09 In Her Closet

In Ciara’s Closet – Zara

After a brief flirtation with shorter hair, Ciara has already reverted back to her longer extension.

I must say I’m a tad disappointed as the crop was growing on me. She should’ve worn that style a bit longer.

I’m also disappointed that Ciara looks so good in this Zara dress, which she wore on a shopping trip to Chanel on Robertson Boulevard in Beverly Hills.

Disappointed because I loved this dress and I’ve tried on 3 separate times and couldn’t get it to work.

Maybe I’m too broad because but I just couldn’t get the shoulders to work on me, they were so crooked and uneven I had to give up ever owning this dress.

I will just have to be content with admiring it on Ciara, who paired her dress with a wide black waist belt and black strappy sandals.
