Who Wore Lanvin Better? Courteney Cox or Kate Moss

Courteney Cox certainly brought something new to the red carpet instead of her usual head-to-toe black, when she attended the 2011 Critics’ Choice Television Awards back in June wearing a Lanvin python-print silk dress.

The ‘Cougar Town’ actress ensured the print was the stand out part of her look.

Her dress wasn’t overshadowed by fussy accessories as she only added a waist defining light-grey grosgrain belt and black strappy sandals.

Kate Moss wore the same Lanvin dress whilst out to dinner at Zuma in London with BFF Sir Phillip Green and her husband Jamie Hince.

The Moss magic was in full effect as she pulls off this effortlessly casual look in her trademark, ‘shabby chic’, ‘just threw this on’ style.

Her dress was paired with a Chanel handbag, Christian Louboutin’s heels and a white blazer.

I think both the ladies look great.

Courtney gets points for breaking out of her comfort zone, but I prefer how Kate wore this as a drop-waist dress so she wins for me.

Courteney Cox joined her ‘Cougar Town’ co-star Busy Philipps at the 2011 Critics’ Choice Television Awards which took place at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California today.

The comedic actress continues to take time out from wearing her favoured head-to-toe black, to wear this Lanvin python-print silk dress.

Her brown and cream python-print silk dress was worn with a waist defining light-grey grosgrain belt and black strappy sandals.

Pink lippie completed her look.

Chanel’s Benefit Dinner For The Natural Resources Benefit

The celebration for our Oceans to benefit the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Ocean Initiative was sponsored by Chanel in Malibu, LA last night.

Kate Hudson: The mother-to-be arrived wearing a black Chanel draped asymmetrical dress with Brian Atwood ‘Debra Due’ peep-toes and a snake-skin clutch. As always she was glowing and continues outdo many other mothers-to-be on the red carpet.

Courtney Cox: I’m very surprised that Courtney didn’t wear black. The actress wore a navy and beige tweed Chanel Spring 2011 dress with black t-bar heels. Her dress is very similar to a dress Naomi Watts wore earlier this year.

Camila Alves: The TV host also opted for black shoes with her white Chanel mini dress. The dress was paired with a Chanel cropped jacket from the Resort 2011 collection.

Amber Valletta: The model would’ve been one of my favourites at this event had she opted for heels which were more complementary to her pink and navy tweed Chanel Spring 2011 dress. A black clutch completed her look.

Ali Larter: I’m guessing the actress got lost on her way to Malibu beach.  A cover up to a Chanel benefit?  REALLY?

Bryce Dallas Howard: The actress needs help. Her style choices since we discovered she was pregnant have been less than flattering. Rachel Zoe, Victoria Beckham, Selma Blair, Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson above have all managed to work sophisticated maternity styles, so why is Bryce struggling so badly?

For a Chanel event I find myself being incredibly disappointed by all excluding Kate Hudson.

Courteney Cox In Marc Jacobs – An Evening With ‘Cougar Town’

Courteney Cox attended An Evening With ‘Cougar Town’ held at The Television Arts & Sciences Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in Hollywood yesterday.

The raven haired actress has been moving out of her comfort-zone of head-to-toe black recently.

On this occasion she wore a nude Marc Jacobs wool short sleeve dress from the Resort 2011 collection.

The scoop neck, short sleeved dress with tonal piping details was paired with black t-bar sandals, a gold watch and a large gold ring.

I don’t mind the black heels on this occasion as they don’t weigh down her look, but I wish the dress was more fitted around the waist.

Courteney Cox On “Letterman” & “Good Morning America” In Roland Mouret & Jimmy Choo

Whilst Courteney Cox was promoting her new movie, “Scream 4″ on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ and ‘Good Morning America’ this week, she opted for the same dress and shoe designer.

On ‘Letterman’ she wore a Roland Mouret Helena dress with Jimmy Choo ‘Volume’ sandals to add a contrasting colour to her look, when she so often opts for head-to-toe black.

So imagine my jaw-dropping surprise to see her not wearing her favourite colour on ‘Good Morning America’ yesterday.

She opted for a salmon leather jacket over a Roland Mouret alabaster stretch parachute silk-blend dress with a Roland Mouret ‘Glawari’ light khaki skirt.

Jimmy Choo ‘United’ sandals completed her look.

I have to say the first look works better for me, as I slightly put off by the creased skirt in her second look.

“Scream 4″ LA Premiere Red Carpet Round Up

Here’s a round-up of the rest of the looks from the red carpet at the “Scream 4″ LA Premiere last night.

Courtney Cox – one of the original stars of the movie – follows in her BFFs (Jennifer Aniston) footsteps by wearing an all black The Row ensemble.

Her black halter top and lace skirt was paired with Sergio Rossi heels and Irit Design jewels.

Courtney’s body looks outstanding in this look.

Co-star Neve Campbell also went for all black by selecting a Vivienne Westwood Red Label brocade dress with Gucci black patent peep-toes and Amrapali jewels.

Actress Lucy Hale opted for a Georges Hobeika Spring 2011 Signature collection dress.

Her black sequin cocktail dress with mesh cut-out sleeves and keyhole detail, is from Hobeika’s first Ready-to-Wear collection.

Giuseppe Zanotti bow front heels completed her cute look.

Runway To 2010 Brit Awards – Courtney Love In Miu Miu

What a mess.

Courtney Love arrived on the red carpet at the 2010 Brit Awards looking like she just woke up.

I loved Miu Miu Spring 2010 collection with it’s whimsical embellished dresses, but Courtney has destroyed the cute fantasy element of this look.

She paired her dress with a Miu Miu jeweled shoulder bag and a large colourful necklace, which was pretty but just didn’t work with her look.

I hope she returns to her grungy roots, as this type of look doesn’t work for her.

18.01.10 Best Dressed

2010 Golden Globes Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award

I was a bit underwhelmed by this red carpet until I saw Diane Kruger.

Ever since I attended the Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Couture show in January last year I’ve been praying to see this gown on the red carpet.

Diane more than does this stunning pink ombre gown justice. The colour really pops on the soggy red carpet on a cold and rainy night in LA.

I love the sleek old Hollywood hairstyle. She was really out to impress.

Her white Raven Kauffman Couture clutch matched the pretty white bow on the side of her dress.

Most Predictable Award

There would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Marion Cotillard would wear Christian Dior.

Style.com even predicted that exact dress she would wear.

Being the face of ‘Lady Dior’ helps, plus when we see her in Dior we always get spectacular results.

Her petrol green satin asymmetrical Spring 2010 dress has a thigh-high split with a black négligée peeping through.

Jimmy Choo ‘Drake’ sandals and Chopard jewels complete her look.

Biggest Shock Award

Courteney Cox walked the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 collection.

Like most pieces from VB’s collection the dress was well structured and had a ‘top to hem’ zipper along the back.

I liked the jeweled detail on the empire waist, and the chic updo Courteney sported.

Normally I don’t care much for Courteney on the red carpet, but she really surprised me by how great she looked.

She carried a black Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch.

Her husband actor David Arquette dutifully kept her dry from the pouring rain.

Best Couture Award

This is definitely one of those ‘better on screen look’s.  Unfortunately the picture isn’t doing Drew Barrymore any favours.

Her Atelier Versace Fall 2009 one shoulder champagne gown was stunning.

The nude corset was covered by a nude crystallized overlay, with two clusters of glass fringes on the shoulder and the hip.

Her hair was swept back as not to interfere with the details, as the actress wore Lorraine Schwartz jewels to complete her look.

It’s A Grower Award

I’ve been going back and forth with Julianne Moore.

I was just about to put her on the Worst Dressed list, when I decided that her Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 dress wasn’t as bad as I first thought.  Mostly because she looks so elegant.

The grey colour initially put me off this silk bustier gown, but I really like the pleated lace detailed neckline and her green Bvlgari earrings were magnificent.

Black suede Balenciaga stingray sandals complete the look.

Beautiful, Even When Slightly Wet Award

Chloe Sevigny would’ve been the most worried about getting her rose Valentino sleeveless gown wet as it would’ve deflated those beautiful ruffles.

But she was lucky to have a someone to help shield her dress from the rain.

Buccellati jewels complete the look.

Va Va Voom ‘Jessica Rabbit’ Award

Christina Hendricks has the most amazing body, which she always dresses so well.

She leaves me breathless in this stunning Christian Siriano Spring 2010 gown which was custom-made to hug those delicious curves.

She carried a Christian Loubuotin ‘Kephron’ silver clutch and wore Loree Rodkin jewels.Read More…
