Courtney Love In Roberto Cavalli – 2011 El Museo Del Barrio Gala

Courtney Love was in New York City last night to attend the 2011 El Museo Del Barrio Gala.

Someone take my temperature because I’m can’t believe I’m going to say this.

The singer actually looked pretty good in her Roberto Cavalli gown.

I’m shocked because I don’t think I’ve liked a single Courtney Love red carpet look in about 2 years, but this beaded sequin gown is really working for her.

Not only that but she’s doesn’t look like she just stumbled out of bed.

Her make-up is actually very pretty and her hair is reasonably under control.

Courtney Love In Givenchy Couture – 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Things were going so well on the red carpet at the 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala, until I stumbled upon this picture.

Good lord, what did Riccardo Tisci ever do to Courtney Love for her totally ruin this Givenchy Spring 2011 Couture creation?

This is why I put up the runway pictures, because if I just said it was Givenchy Couture you would’ve never believed me.

Who Wore Givenchy Better? Keri Hilson, Courtney Love or Liv Tyler

This is going to be a tough one, because I’m not feeling the way any of these stars wore this Givenchy Ottoman stitch stripe jacket.

We first saw the Givenchy Spring 2010 jacket worn by Keri Hilson when she performed the National Anthem before the game between the LA Lakers and the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia back in March.

She kept the look very simple with a black top, black jeans and a black peep-toes.

Courtney Love arrived at the Groucho Club looking a bit tired following her performance at the Brixton Academy in London back in May.

She wore her jacket with a blue Balenciaga mini dress, Chanel ballet pumps and a tan Birkin.

Liv Tyler also kept the rest of her look all black when attending the “MOCA Opening Reception for Dennis Hopper” in LA last week.

She added an Alexander McQueen fold-over clutch to her look to stop it from being totally boring.

Liv wins for me because Keri’s jeans look too tight and Love is a hot mess.

Givenchy Hosts The Closing Of Maria Abramovic’s “The Artist Is Present” Exhibition

Last night Givenchy and Riccardo Tisci hosted a dinner party for the closing of Maria Abramovic’s “The Artist Is Present” Exhibition in New York.

Givenchy devotees Courtney Love and Ciara both attended.

Love looked surprising clean and well turned out wearing a black custom-made strapless sheer Givenchy gown, whilst Ciara opted for another look from the Givenchy Spring 2010 Couture collection which I simply adore on her.  She’s really working it.

Actress/model Veronica Webb didn’t opt for something so moody. She wore a black and white zig-zag patterned silk Givenchy Spring 2010 dress paired with black strappy sandals.

I was really excited to see Bjork back on the red carpet and it looks like she hasn’t lost any of her eccentricity.

The singer wore the boldest and brightest Givenchy look, wearing a gold ruffled dress from the Fall 2008 collection

Although I’m not crazy about her shoe choice, Christina Ricci was the best dressed at this event for me.

I love the sexy lace and feathered skirt of her Fall 2010 dress.

She is the Givenchy girl as she’s mysterious, cool, edgy and is comfortable going from Gothic to sexy.

Liv Tyler opted for Couture like Ciara. Her all black sheer look was made sexy with a pop of red to her lips.

Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2010

The Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2010 collection was a lot softer in comparison to his Fall 2009 urban warrior collection.

We saw optical prints, sleeveless tops, tulip shaped coats and cocktail dresses.

Many of the pieces had rounded hems which was an interesting twist. There was subtle layering and sleek silhouettes.

The colour palette consisted of mostly neutrals or black, with purple and silver included also.

My favourite pieces were the finale gowns which were very simple.

The tank-style gowns had a shorter hemline in front and a flowing back. When it caught the wind of the runway the dress billowed and moved so graciously.

Jessica Alba was the last celebrities to arrive at her seat and the photographers went wild.

How celebrities cope with those flash bulbs is beyond me.

She wore a bubble hemmed mini dress, with a black sequined top and a starry midnight sky skirt.

I’m not sure if they were expecting her to do something crazy but Courtney Love got the most flashbulbs.

Maybe the photographers just wanted to get a close up of the satin details on her Narciso Rodriguez black viscose dress.

Emmy Rossum looked really cute in her Fall 2009 halter dress, with an edgy army fatigue print on the bodice.

She was in the front row with her stylist and right in my eye line, so every now and then I would see her saying to her stylist “That’s cute”.

So we should expect to see Emmy wearing Narciso Rodriguez pieces in the future on the red carpet.
