“The Runaways” New York Premiere – Dakota Fanning In Elie Saab Couture

Dakota Fanning walked the red carpet at “The Runaways” New York premiere with Kristen Stewart where they were joined by Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, who the young actresses portray in the movie.

Looking like tinkerbell in her nude embroidered baby doll Elie Saab Spring 2010 dress, Dakota glowed on the red carpet.

The gorgeous dress has an open back and cap sleeves which make this dress so pretty.

She’s swiftly becoming a favourite of mine as she’s always sophisticated, age appropriate and adorable to boot.

Unlike Kristen, Dakota made the right shoe choice, wearing a pair Brian Atwood nude suede “Maniac” pumps.

BDOTW contender in my eyes. What about yours?

“The Runaways” LA Premiere Red Carpet – Dakota Fanning In Valentino Couture

Talented young actress Dakota Fanning also walked the red carpet for “The Runaways” LA premiere last night.

Like Jennifer Aniston at The Bounty Hunter” London premiere yesterday night, Dakota also wore Valentino Couture.

It looks these ladies will are both becoming brand ambassadors, as Dakota is developing a love for Valentino.

For this event Dakota wore a silver sequin embroidered Valentino Fall 2009 Couture mini dress.

I’m kinda glad the dress was modified to remove the feathered shoulder detail, as it may have overwhelmed Dakota.

Her modification makes the dress simpler and suits her relaxed non fussy style.

From a distance her pumps look black, but they are actually Ferragamo pewter python heels which complement her dress perfectly.

Her make-up is light and fresh, with her hair sleek straight.

There is nothing I don’t like about this look. Definitely a BDOTW contender.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Kate Beckinsale In Andrew GN & Dakota Fanning In Valentino

Even though many comments on Kate Beckinsale’s post was that she’s boring and predictable on the red carpet, she still won the readers poll.

This is because Kate has perfected red carpet dressing and this was evident with her looking amazing in Andrew GN. No longer does she over dress, she consistent and glamorous at every event.

I was blown away from Dakota Fanning wearing Valentino on the red carpet, upstaging the whole main cast.

After watching “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” movie this evening, I’m even more in awe of the teenage actress.

She has confidence beyond her years, plus her style is graceful without looking too mature.

Miley take note.

“The Twilight Saga: New Moon” LA Premiere

As hard as I tried, I just couldn’t love Kristen Stewart in this stunning Oscar de la Renta Resort 2010 tulle gown.

If she wanted to be the Bella of this ball she shouldn’t scowled her way down the red carpet, and she should’ve done more with her hair.

For me this is a waste of a stunning gown.

As much as it was Kristen’s night, Dakota Fanning stole her red carpet thunder.

The teen actress wore a cute Valentino Spring 2010 lace dress paired with a maroon satin pair of platform heels.

I would’ve loved it if she had kept the cute bow, but I guess she was going for a more grown up look.

Definitely a BDOTW contender…

…as is Ashley Greene .

She was a total knock-out wearing a Prabal Gurung Fall 2009 ravishing red gown.

The high-neck gown had an incredibly sexy draping detail at the back.

Half-up-half-down hairstyles usually bother me, but Ashley has so much good going on I can not fault her.

Noot Seear surprised me being the 3rd celebrity to wear a piece from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 collection.

I’ll admit I didn’t know who she was, but the Canadian actress sure does justice to this reptile print dress.

Instead of the Armadillo heels she opted for a sexy pair of strappy platform heels.

Anna Kendrick sparkled on the red carpet wearing a Talbot Runhof Fall 2009 black asymmetrical one sleeve sequin-mini dress.

This dress sure does put you in the festive spirit with the red and white studs which add a bit of colour to this cute/sexy mini.

She completed her look with Stella McCartney heels.

I’m very grateful to Christian Serratos for modifying this Rafael Cennamo Fall 2009 gown into a cute and sassy mini dress.

I just wish her gold and silver pailette covered mini dress was worn with better shoes.

Those bronze ankle boots are like kryptonite to my eyes.

Author Stephenie Meyer glided down the red carpet wearing a custom-made Carolina Herrera gown with a mermaid hem.

The gown is loosely based black and grey embroidered sheath dress which was presented on the Fall 2009 runway.

I love how much more dramatic Stephenie’s gown is to the runway look.

A chic updo and Gothic beads complete this stunning look.

Julia Jones showed off her legs wearing a sexy coral BCBG Max Azria mini dress.

I just love this colour against her caramel skin.

What a beauty.

Julianne Hough’s look has a touch of de ja vu to it, as it reminds me of the Prabal Gurung look we saw on Becki Newton recently.

Nikki Reed opted for a stunning silk baby blue Burberry mini dress, paired with Christian Louboutin heels.

2009 NAACP Image Awards

Jennifer Hudson pick up her outstanding new artist Award wearing a black Peter Sorenon dress, which had a feathered detail on the hip.

She completed her look with Givenchy lace ankle sandals.

Beyonce perform her song Halo wearing a gorgeous white gown, with a black band, and delicate embellishments on the bodice, which also cascaded down her skirt.

Jada Pinkett Smith wore a maroon strapless Monique Lhuillier gown, with a a vintage Judith Lieber belt.

I must say I am a bit disappointed the bigger stars did not take to the red carpet.

Taraji P. Henson added her increasing star quality to the red carpet wearing a gorgeous lemon halter neck mermaid Zac Posen gown.

I love the ruffled detail down the middle, and the layering of the hem.

A very chic Rosario Dawson walked the red carpet wearing a black silk taffeta Rafael Cennamo full-skirted dress.

Sanaa Lathan looked ravishing in this daring plunge neck jersey Donna Karan gown with black straps.

I am not a fan of Dakota Fanning’s nude strapless down. It feels too naked.

Alfre Woodard wore a Tadashi fuschia iridescent crinkled silk chiffon fly away cocktail dress. Her look was accessorized with a Mary Norton gold clutch.

Chandra Wilson impressed me on this red carpet.

Usually I find a fault, but the hair, the make-up, the jewels, the Daniel Swarovski clutch and her orange Pamella Roland Spring 2008 gown are all faultless.

Can you believe that this is Rudy Huxtable aka Keshia Knight Pulliam?

She stands out on the red carpet wearing an electric blue gown.

After Taraji, Vanessa Williams wore my second favourite gown on this red carpet. I love the colour, and jeweled detail on this one-shouldered gown.

Like Chandra, Tichina Arnold looks flawless. This baby blue gown really stands out and makes her glow.

Holly Robinson Peete wore a coral and silver Naeem Khan Spring 2008 patterned cocktail dress, with pewter strappy heels.

Social Events Of The Week

Lorraine Schwartz hosts H.E. Yousef Al Otaiba, New York

Beyonce Knowles sure does love big earrings, and they are usually provided by Lorraine Schwartz for B’s red carpet moments. So it was no wonder the gorgeous singer was guest of honour at Lorraine’s event.

Wearing a clinging Hervé Léger gown, B literally takes my breath away. The grey is so understated, and of works well with her Lorraine Schwartz chandler earrings.

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

Dakota Fanning wears a very cute navy playsuit with a Chanel necklace. My problem is the heels. They are a bit too sex up for my liking. I would have put her in gladiator flats.

“The Pink Panther 2″ New York Premiere

Aishwarya Rai wore a Alberta Ferretti Fall 2008 black chiffon draped gown with a plunging neckline.

The stunning beauty never fails to impress on the red carpet. She wore her gown with a silver clutch, and a bedazzling diamond necklace.

From the scalloped edges of her white coat, it was easy to tell that Emily Mortimer was wearing Chloé.

The white cotton coat and embroidered white dress, are both from the Spring 2009 collection.

She complimented her dress with gold heels, and a gold clutch, but she mixed her metals opting for a diamond choker and a silver bracelet.

BAFTA Red Carpet Programme, London

Like a trooper Fearne Cotton pose for photos in the snow whilst presenting the BAFTA Red Carpet Programme at the Bafta building in London.

Her multi-coloured sequined dress is very reminiscent of Jennifer Connelly’s Balmain dress, don’t you think?
