Frida Giannini’s Gucci Dinner

Frida Giannini, the Creative Director at Gucci, had this dinner party thrown in her honour by Vogue UK.

She was impeccably dressed in her own Fall 2009 collection, which included a stunning gun metal grey chain-mail tunic, and thigh high black leather boots, which as must as we’ll try, we won’t escape this Fall.

Emilia Fox was one of my favourites at this event, as she just oozes grace, and she has that classic glamour about her, that makes her one to watch on the red carpet.

Looking every inch the English rose, she arrived in a satin teal gown, which was exquisite on her.

Erin O’Connor is so beautiful and statuesque. Everything she wears looks instantly regal, even this stunning multi-coloured blue and green chiffon Gucci Spring 2009 gown.

This may have been a dinner to toast Frida, but Jasmine Guinness wore a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 gold jacket, over her sexy black gown.

I love the jacket, as it added an edge to her look, without making her look ridiculous.

VV Brown opted out of the floor-length gowns. Instead singer wore a mini T-shirt Ashish Fall 2009 dress, which was covered in sequined multi-coloured geometric prints.

Her look was completed with her trademark quiff, gladiator heels, and a pair of geeky Urkel specs.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley gives an ethereal glow wearing a silvery grey asymmetrical Grecian Gucci gown.

Lisa B was dressed in a knock-out deep red satin Gucci gown. The draping flattered Lisa’s figure, and the only accessory this beauty needed was a clutch.

Peaches Geldof tries to look grown up in her berry Gucci gown, but I’m sorry her tattoos really ruin this look for me. Plus she is strangely hunched over, in what I believe is her signature pose.

I will give her a 5 out 10 for her effort.

It doesn’t matter what her sister Pixie Geldof wears, she will always looks like she just got out of bed after a heavy night on the sauce.

Just when you think Claudia Schiffer couldn’t get more boring on the red carpet.

Claudia Schiffer For Vogue Italia March 2009


Here’s something we don’t see very often, Claudia Schiffer with a different hairstyle.

In her Vogue Italia March 2009 editorial shot by Patrick Demarchelier, the supermodel is entirely dressed in Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2009 collection.

It looks to have been a very difficult shoot, as she is crouching down in a back of a limo, with some very shapely, voluminous dresses, but she manages to look fieeeerce.

Miss Goodie-two-shoes even holds a cigarette in one of the pictures.

Fashion Fringe 2009 Launch Party

We all know that Donatella Versace never wears a runway dress, instead she modifies pieces and totally makes them unique to her.

In this case her white asymmetrical dress is a asymmetrical gown and a white strapless dress, which were both presented during her Spring 2009 collection, merged into one dress.

Model Jacquetta Wheeler wore a simple black tank top and gold buckled belt, with her Luella Spring 2009 skirt.

The gorgeous purple skirt with a gold pattern is with pleated frills, to give a whimsical feel to her overall look.

Natalia Vodianova could have really done without the leggings with her taupe coloured Versace Spring 2009 mini dress.

Like Katie Holmes’ recent Jason Wu look, the leggings totally ruin this for me.

I have done a post on The Never Changing Hairstyle Of Amanda Bynes, and many of you have expressed a need to do a similar post for Claudia Schiffer.

Yes her hair is glossy and gorgeous, but it never changes. Even in her latest Salvatore Ferragamo ad campaign, her hairstyle remains the same.

The model posed wearing a black pant suit, and a polka dotted blouse. Her nude accessories really stood out from her dark look.

I must say I am very surprised that both Natalia and Claudia weren’t at the Valentino New York premiere, they usually follow him everywhere.

Chanel Fall 2009 Front Row

I wasn’t crazy about Freida Pinto’s Elle Style Awards Chanel dress, but this white Chanel dress I LOVE.

The beauty is in it’s chicness, the bold brooches, and the origami sleeves. Outstanding.

Best Dress Of The Week candidate for sure.

Bond Girl, Olga Kurylenko wore Chanel Spring 2009 ensemble, which included a black bowed detailed sleeveless blush pink blouse.

The look has no wow factor, but that doesn’t stop her from looking absolutely beautiful.

Kate Moss made a rare fashion week front row appearance for Chanel, sitting alongside her boyfriend Jamie Hince, and photographer Mario Testino.

The supermodel kept her look simple wearing a black tuxedo suit, which had a white trim on the pants, with black platform heels.

I have never quite understood how the Chanel-Lily Allen connection came about. On paper, it doesn’t seem like a great fit. But she does pick great pieces, that suit her personality, like this Chanel Resort 2009 pink and navy dress.

Her look is complete with Louboutin’s and white Chanel purse.

Claudia Schiffer look is very Librarian for someone who is wearing head to toe Chanel.

After offending a very small number of in Herve Leger, Beth Ditto opted for a more sombre look when she arrived at the Chanel shoe this afternoon.

Social Events Of The Weekend

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 Front Row

Leave it to a supermodel to show us how fabulous the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 collection can look. While the actresses in the VIP room were wearing safe options, Eva Herzigova wore the one of the many stand-out pieces, in the form of a scarlet red sheath dress, with voluminous quarterback shoulders.

Her fellow supermodel, Claudia Schiffer, wore a less in-ya-face colour, but picked the perfect accessories, to make her black on black ensemble from the Spring 2009 collection stand out.

“Phoebe In Wonderland” Screening, LA

Sporting longer and lighter locks, Eva Longoria supported her cast mate Felicity Hoffman at her movie screening.

Eva was ravishing in a scarlet one-shoulder Diane von Furstenberg sheath dress.

Felicity Hoffman matched Eva, in the bright colours stakes, by showing off a fabulous zest for fashion wearing this lemon Pamella Roland full skirted dress.

“A” and SKY Present 60’s Party Night, Milan

Although many would consider lace so last season, Eva Mendes truly worked lace to perfection in her over-the-knee, collared dress, which she accessorized with a gorgeous black patent belt, and sky-high platform Casadei pumps.

Dolce & Gabbana The Make Up, Milan

Scarlett Johansson arrived at this event wearing a leopard print Dolce & Gabbana trench, black cigarette trousers and grey booties.

During the photocall the actress whipped off her coat, to reveal a very pretty pink satin blouse.

“Keep Memory Alive” Gala, LA

Teri Hatcher shows off her svelte figure in a long black halter dress, with an embroidered breast panel, teamed with a matching black clutch and a gold cuff.

Hilary Duff seems to age in this black belted dress, with a fringed hem. Her look was complete with Givenchy Open Toe d’Orsay heels.

PADRES Contra El Cancer Benefit, LA

Wearing what appears to be a First Lady-inspired look, Eva Longoria matches her neutrals, wearing a beige shift Versace dress paired with matching beige Christian Louboutin heels.
