“G.I. Joe: The Rise Of The Cobra” LA Screening

We’ve seen many looks from Sienna Miller during this promotional tour, and last night she gave us Hollywood glamour.

The British actress looked outstanding as she glowed wearing a gold capped-sleeved shimmering YSL gown which has a vintage feel to it.

I love the deep red lips and her marcel waves which were swept to one side.

I guess she saved the best to last.

Rachel Nichols was an absolute knock out at this screening wearing a Kaufman Franco Fall 2009 white jersey open back gown, with a ruffled knotted detail on the back.

Rachel also opted for a red lip and accessorized with elegant drop emerald earrings.

Megan Fox wore a lot of Kaufman Franco gowns during her “Transformers” promotional tour. I’m really surprised she didn’t pick this uber sexy gown, but supermodel Anja Rubik did when she arrived at the CDFA Awards.

My girl crush on Ciara is growing more and more with each red carpet appearance.

She also wore a sexy white Herve L. Leroux dress, but she added a gold necklace to jazz up her look.

Had she not worn those black pumps I would have given this look 10 out of 10.

I thought only Halle Berry could own this short cropped ‘do but I was wrong.

Jenna Dewan does a Liz Hurley and shows some leg in a strapless ruched aqua Blumarine Fall 2009 gown with a thigh high split.

Gold Jimmy Choo heels and a matching oversized clutch completed the look.

Who promotes Playboy at a movie premiere?

Douche bag Dave and his wife Heidi Montag, that’s who.

I wonder who invites these people?

Speaking of wondering who invites these people.

Aubrey O’Day walked the red carpet wearing the colour of the night – white.

Express Celebrates TXT L8TER Denim Campaign Launch Party

My first reaction to Ciara wearing this strapless Marchesa Fall 2009 scarlet jumpsuit was negative, but I must admit it grew on me very quickly and I’m totally in love with this look.

The jumpsuit with a bow bodice detail really made her stand out from anyone else walking the red carpet.

It can take some people a while to adapt their style to a new haircut, but Ciara is managing the transition perfectly. I can’t even remember what she looked like before with longer hair, as she’s really owning this new look.

Rachel Bilson opted for an ultra short printed mini Jean Paul Gaultier dress, with a navy Express blazer.

Her look was paired with a sexy pair of taupe Christian Louboutin Bianca heels and a vintage bag.

Casual chic at it’s very finest.

Paris and Nicky Hilton attended both wearing black.

Whilst Paris’ sparkled in her cute mini dress and YSL Trib Two pumps, Nicky opted for a edgier look pairing an Express studded tank dress with a leather biker jacket and Christian Louboutin Very Prive studded peep-toe pumps.

I knew those heels were going to be hot.

Design Care Benefit for HollyRod Foundation

Many of you have campaigned long and hard for this moment, and you finally have your wish.  The gorgeous Georgina Chapman modifying her runway designs.

Your complaints were that as a designer she should be setting herself apart from clients like Thandie Newton, Jennifer Morrison and Miley Cyrus, despite the fact that she usually beat them in Who Wore It Better? polls.

I adore this scarlet satin Marchesa Fall 2009 strapless dress with satin bow on the hip.  The dress sparkles – as she does – with embroidered detail on the bow and the bodice.

The colour is so rich and luxurious which compliments her sun-kissed skin.

Matching peep-toes complete this exquisite look.  I can’t gush about how much I love this look enough.

We normally have to wait until Thursday to get BDOTW contenders, but we have 3 already.

Ciara walked the red carpet looking chic with her razor sharp ‘do wearing a Rock & Republic Spring 2009 leather mini-dress with an oversized bow neckline.

She wore her sexy dress with a pair of Rock & Republic’s “Athena” sandals and pink lips.

Lisa Rinna went back into the archives to find this stunning strapless Roberto Cavalli Fall 2005 gold lame dress.

You may remember Kate Hudson wore this dress back in 2005 to “The Skeleton Key” London Premiere.

Terry Ellis, Cindy Herron, Dawn Robinson and Maxine Jones aka En Vogue were a quartet of beautiful ladies all wearing Marchesa and Notte by Marchesa.

I love the baby blue on Cindy, she always stands out.

Maxine was the only one to wear a modified dress.  She opted for a shorter sassy dress over a flowing gown like her band mates.

Holly Robinson Peete opted for a strapless coral Marchesa Resort 2009 silk chiffon pleated dress with embroidered bodice and waist.

The colour is divine against her glowing skin.

I would have loved to have seen Gabrielle Union wearing one of the sassy and more colourful cocktail dresses from Marchesa’s stunning collections, but she opted for a navy strapless gown with a embellished detail on the bodice.

Garcelle Beauvais opted for a simple black gown brought to life with gold embroidery detail through-out the dress.  She compliments her dress with a gold statement necklace which she often wears to add a bit of pizazz to her look.

“Orphan” LA Premiere”

Vera Farmiga, who is the lead actress in this movie, looked stunning wearing a Versace Spring 2009 white silk one-shoulder gown with a heart shaped and zipper detailing on the bodice.

The gown was paired with nude leather zipper sandals, a metallic gold paillette clutch and Versace Fine jewelry.

Her hair was elegant styled into a chic updo and I would say the look was head-to-toe perfect, but the heart detail on her dress looks a bit crushed, but it’s always difficult to achieve runway perfection.

I’m not sure who’s idea it was to sex up little Miss Rossum, but I like it.

Earlier this week we saw Emmy Rossum wearing a black structured Ungaro dress, and for this premiere we get more of the same.  An edgy urban look via this Phi Fall 2009 high-neck dress with a paisley print and exposed zipper.

It kinda has a biker feel to it don’t you think?

I’m glad she opted out of the long leather gloves, the tights, and the belt, but I would have loved her to have worn her hair in a slick back tight pony.

Here is a first red carpet look of Ciara’s new shorter do.

Personally I don’t like it. Mostly because it feels like a quick reaction to Rihanna’s recent crop.

The singer wore black leather skinny pants with a gold sequined Gryphon racer back tank top.

I’m not quite sure what’s going on here, but I know it don’t like it.

Kim Kardashian opted for a strange Proenza Schouler T-shirt bustier dress which looks like she has a black tee shirt under a white strapless dress.

The dress is paired with a YSL cage belt and YSL trib two heels, but even they can’t save this look.

Kim’s make-up is usually flawless, but on this occasion I can’t say I love it.

2009 BET Awards

Most Predictable Award
Their would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Beyonce Knowles would have worn Balmain to this event, as she’s worn so many Balmain pieces both on and off the red carpet.

She did pick a very colourful interesting piece with a swirling sequin pattern and a jagged hem.

I love the dress and the playful hoop earrings, but the hair I’m not fond of.

Worst Re-Run Award
Letoya Luckett wore a lace, crystal embellished, zipper dress from the Balmain Fall 2008 dress which we’ve already seen on the red carpet.

She looks good in the dress, but those clunky gold Alejandro Ingelmo clown heels just ruin the look.

Sticky But Sweet Award
Leather on a hot sunny day?

I’m getting hot just looking at Ciara, but her ruched maroon leather Cynthia Steffe Fall 2009 dress does look amazing on her, plus I love the ruffled detail.

The singer kept both her accessories and make-up light and neutral.

Best Dressed Award
Alicia Keys really stood out in her Moroccan inspired embellished mini Jenny Packham dress, and her larger-than-life curly ‘do.

The singer completed her look with Christian Louboutin Spartenvol Strass 100 sandals and a matching nude 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.

It’s so false from the hair cut to the peek-a-boo Mark Fast knit dress to the Giuseppe Zanotti fold-over booties

Screams wannabee.

Best Super Hero Award
Singer Keri Hilson channels her inner Wonder Woman wearing a black bustier dress adorned with multi-coloured stars and other interesting shapes.

Her look was a little more risky than the others which made her stand out.

She could have easily over done her look with lots of bling, but she knows her statement dress should do all the talking.

Casadei black satin pumps completes this look.

Best Heels Award
Amerie opted for a LWD with Alexander McQueen peep-toe booties.

Best Homage Award
Estelle paid homage to the late Michael Jackson by wearing a single white glove with her denim tiered Acne baroque peplum dress.

I love the cute nature of this dress with the contrasting silver spiked earrings.

Just OK Award
Actress Keke Palmer wore an embellished dress with sparkled in the LA sunshine.

Most Original Award
Tyra Banks could have been predictable and worn  Balmain or slinky dress instead she tired something new wearing a menswear-inspired satin ensemble.

I wouldn’t have thought Tyra could pull off an androgynous look but she totally works it.

Her look includes midnight blue satin skinny pants, a dove grey vest and satin pussy bow blouse, with suede Trib Two pumps.

Neutral make up and simply styled hair make this look work.

23.06.09 Premiere

“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” LA Premiere

After her Donna Karan gown, I thought that Megan Fox couldn’t out do herself, then she arrived on the red carpet last night looking better then ever.

Her white jersey Kaufman Franco gown is incredibly sophisticated and sexy, something Megan has struggled to find in equal balance since her Donna Karan gown.

For me this is her best look yet.

For once I don’t feel like she is trying to hard. She’s not even over pouting. If you have seen the movie you know what I’m talking about.

Definitely a Best Dressed Of The Week candidate.

Isabel Lucas opted for a cute chiffon lemon cocktail vintage Chanel Haute Couture dress covered in silver embellishments.

Her silver accessories complemented her dress including Lanvin pointy pumps and a Fendi clutch, and her 3 tone hair was styled with loose waves.

Kristin Cavallari was my second favourite at this event wearing a fuschia pink Zac Posen asymmetrical dress which I had on my favourites last week.

What I love about this dress, with its one capped sleeve and one strapped sleeve, is the structure along with the vivid colour.

I’m glad she pulled her hair back so we could see the asymmetrical neckline.

Her look was paired with nude Dolce Vita Cajun gladiator sandals and a black clutch.

Taylor Momsen seems to have grown out of her Debbie Harry phase, as she not wearing the extreme heavy make-up and leathers.

Instead she opted for a slightly softer look wearing an ivory bustier Dolce & Gabbana dress with black lace-up sandals, finishing her look with smoky eyes and a Crucifix necklace.

She’s young and still experimenting so I’m sure we will be introduced to many more looks from Taylor.

We’re more used to seeing Aubrey O’Day half naked or spilling out of her clothes so this is a great look for her.

She also picked a bright summery colour wearing a cobalt blue Temperley London Eclipse Glade dress, with silver Louboutin sandals with complemented the gem-embellished detail on her shoulder.

For once she’s impressed me but I don’t expect this kind of look from her again.

Ciara on the other hand didn’t impress me.

What a lazy boring attempt.

Tie-dye jeans are becoming a bit stale and the visible bra is my number 2 pet-peeve after tights.

My number 3 pet-peeve is two tone or more hair. Ciara was just not out to impress last night.

Just as I suspected Kim Kardashian had just pinned up her luscious locks for the MuchMusic Awards and hadn’t cut it thankfully.

The reality star arrived on the red carpet wearing a sleeveless tuxedo dress which had a deep plunge.

Stella McCartney heels completed the look and her make-up was much better.

2009 MTV Video Music Awards Japan

Fergie wore a swirly spiral of velvety blue ribbons, which made up her Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 dress.

The dress may have been made especially for her, as it’s hard to pick the exact look from the runway.

Those Christian Louboutin Differa sandals are becoming popular again, but they’re just the right type of edgy shoe to perfect this futuristic look.

A single silver bracelet, and a silver ring was all the jewelry she required.

Katy Perry sticks to her trademark quirky style wearing a Manish Arora embellished, peacock feather print dress.

This is one of the designer’s less flamboyant looks. Last year Katy wore a fabulous merry-go-around as a dress, when she hosted the MTV Europe Music Video Awards.

She paired this stunning creation with high heeled platform cut-out shoe-boots, and a chunky silver Daniel Swarovski bracelet.

I’m very disappointed with Ciara’s look. It’s very much on the futuristic vibe like Fergie and Katy, but the look is quite aggressive, and fails to flatter her.

She’s looked so much better.

BoA, who posed alongside singer Sean Garrett, wore a Loewe Spring 2009 black strapless dress, with white and black trimmed tulle flowers.

Her cute dress, was made edgy with black peep-toe booties, and a cropped jacket.

You may remember that Kate Bosworth wore this same dress, back in February.

Looking gorgeous is easy for Emiri Miyasaka, who is the 2009 Miss Universe Japan.

She wore a multi-coloured Gucci Spring 2009 floaty chiffon gown, which she belted, but opted to keep out one piece for an added twist.

Singer Thelma Aoyama wore a Roberto Cavalli Silk evening gown, with a psychedelic mish mash of bright colours.

Singer Yuna Ito also opted for a Roberto Cavalli gown.

Hers was less colourful, and more voluminous, swamping her tiny frame.
