Social Events Of The Weekend

EA British Academy Children’s Awards 2009, London

Bonnie Wright is no stranger to wearing Prada, but I’m still surprised she picked such an interesting piece from the Resort 2010 collection.

I adore this look from the printed skirt, to the pink blazer and it even gets better when she takes her blazer off. The thing that brings down the look a tad is the black clutch.

This look has certainly brightened up my cold and rainy afternoon here in London.

Bonnie reminds me of Julianne Moore, both in hair colour and their love of experimenting with fashion.

Michelle Ryan is following Whitney Houston and Madonna who have both worn this Dolce & Gabbana animal print dress.

Both diva’s rocked this look.  Michelle should’ve have but her tights and peep-toes take this look from sexy to mumsy.

Monte Carlo Comedy Film Festival, Monaco

Daria Werbowy is the second celebrity to wear a look from Balmain’s Spring 2010 collection.

Sienna Miller was the first, and her dress was similar with the distressed material but Daria’s is slightly longer and has sexier cut-outs.

I hope she’s looking at those booties and saying, “I wish I hadn’t worn these”.

Alessandra Mastronardi looks so chic wearing this forest green ombre Valentino Fall 2009 sleeveless dress.

This dress may appear to be for someone much older than Alessandra, but the fresh-face beauty pulls this look off magnificently.

Clotilde Coureau wears the same lilac polka dotted Christian Dior Resort 2010 dress we saw Dita von Teese wearing during Paris Fashion Week.

I’m not liking the shoe choice, but I do like her studded clutch.

Dita Striptease Book Signing, London

Whilst Coltilde is following Dita von Teese, Dita is following Penelope Cruz who wore this Alexander McQueen houndstood pencil dress recently.

This style of dress was made for Dita.

I’m loving the brooch detail and the t-bar Louboutin’s.

Make A Wish Winter Ball, London

I’m loving Nicola Roberts teal Issa silk jersey gown.

Her confidence befits this stunning gown which she accessorizes with an Alexander McQueen skull clasp clutch.

I’ve never taken to Sarah Harding.

Her look always feels so dated and forced compared to Cheryl and Nicola.

MuchOnDemand, Toronto

*Throws hands up in the air and gives up*

Leona Lewis AGAIN wore a black corset belt whilst on a TV show in Toronto this weekend.

Let’s hope it gets confiscated at immigration.

Dizzy Feet Foundation’s Inaugural Celebration of Dance, LA

Katie Holmes’ look is more casual than we are used to seeing from her on the red carpet, but I’m still liking the look.

A simple LBD is paired with a leather jacket an Givenchy heels.

Who Wore Matthew Williamson For H&M Better? Ginnifer Goodwin or Daria Werbowy

Ginnifer Goodwin was one of the first celebrities along with Nicky Hilton and Katy Perry to get her hands on the Matthew Williamson for H&M collection.

She wore this multi-colour sequined dress when she hosted an evening at “Prive Las Vegas” inside “Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino”.

At the launch of the “Matthew Williamson for H&M collection” aboard The Majesty in New York, Matthew Williamson and model Daria Werbowy posed together on the red carpet.

She wore the same dress as Ginnifer, but she belted her dress and wore booties.

The dress looks so much better worn without a belt, so Ginnifer wins for me.

Models @ The 2009 Costume Institute Gala

After Gwyneth Paltrow wore the gold version of this Versace Spring 2009 dress, plus it’s appeared on many magazine covers, Gisele Bündchen gave us something a little different with a navy blue spaghetti strapped version of this mini dress.

Not a jaw-dropping moment like last year, but you can always rely on her to look fabulous.

Daria Werbowy walked the runway the Balmain Fall 2009 show so she would have pre-selection what she wanted to wear to the event weeks ago. She opted for this black sequined plunging dress from the same collection, with black booties.

Anja Rubik also walked for Balmain, and it looks like she had her eye on this strapless silver piece, with a black asymmetrical hem from the Fall 2009 collection.

Still sporting her Auburn locks, Coco Rocha wore a gold asymmetrical Isaac Mizrahi Fall 2009 gown.

Donatella Versace had a busy night dressing yet another star in her Atelier Versace Spring 2009 collection. Claudia Schiffer opted for a black strapless gown, with many sheer panels.

We have been crying out for a new hairstyle for weeks, and Claudia gave us bangs to keep us quite.

Miranda Kerr wore a very revealing fringed Jil Sander Spring 2009 dress.

Iman supreme elegance as always in Donna Karan.

Karen Elson’s Gothic look is perfect for this Chanel Fall 2009 off the shoulder gown, with a white pleated collar.

The look of the Rodarte Fall 2009 collection included thigh high boots, but Jessica Stam opted for slingbacks with her Rodarte one-shouldered mini dress.

Despite the vivid yellow, I’m missing the wow factor I usually get from Amber Valletta at these types of events.

Helena Christensen’s pink Zac Posen custom Vogue gown is cute, but I would’ve preferred to see it on someone like Chanel Iman.

Hilary Rhoda wore a Thakoon Fall 2009 mini asymmetrical mini dress, with a pouffy piece on her shoulder. I much preferred this dress in black, as it was presented on the runway, but Hilary does look great in it.

As I said above I would have preferred that Helena and Chanel Iman has swapped dresses. Last night Chanel wore a pink Zac Posen Spring 2009 animal print gown.

Shalom Harlow is quite a mysterious character, and she isn’t giving much away in this vintage Bob Mackie black puffy coat dress.

Sessilee Lopez sparkled in a Zac Posen gown, as did Arlenis Sosa in Alberta Ferretti.

Isabeli Fontana pulled on a chartreuse mini for Calvin Klein, with matching pumps.

Alex Wek stood out in purple Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2009 mini dress, but she is so natural beautiful make-up weakens her look.

Narciso Rodriguez dressed Lily Donaldson in a black rise & fall gown.

Rachel Roy- in her own design – dressed both Lakshmi Menon and Joy Bryant. As much as I love them both Joy totally rocks my world in this dress.

Eva Herzigova wore a strapless nude Dolce & Gabbana dress, with Giuseppe Zanotti Special Edition crystal strap sandals.

Lara Stone rocks in her silver Alexander Wang dress.

V59 Magazine’s 6 Supermodel Cover Swimsuit Issue

Kate Moss in a hairy Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2009 jacket, is one of 6 supermodels to grace the cover of V Magazine’s first-ever swimsuit issue, which was shot by Mario Testino.

Inside the issue you will also find other supers including Carmen Kass, Isabeli Fontana, Natalia Vodianova and some hot well oiled guys to drool over in various beach and pool side pics, that will have you longing for your summer vacations.

Claudia Schiffer in handcuffs, strikes a one-legged pose wearing a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 swimsuit, and YSL cage booties.

Matthew Williamson for H&M campaign girl Daria Werbowy, is an absolute knock out, wearing a Versace Spring 2009 cut-out Julie Verhoeven print swimsuit.

Wearing only bikini bottoms, Eva Herzigova’s look is inspired by Marilyn Monroe. Even in the simplest, plainest swimsuit Gisele Bündchen still stands out.

Naomi Campbell takes on a Playboy look, wearing a one-piece strapless swimsuit, gold cuffs and bunny ears. I swear I have seen Naomi pictures before. This is an old picture, right?

I will be standing at my newsagents on May, 6 with Kate and Daria’s covers in my hand, deciding which to buy. You?

Matthew Williamson For H&M Collection New York Launch Party

Whilst we look forward to the second installment of Matthew Williamson’s H&M collection, he had a launch party in New York yesterday.

It was a great chance for us to see pieces from the new collection.

The party nautically-themed party took place on a yacht, and Matthew invited some stylish stars to toast his success.

Campaign model Daria Werbowy caught my eye the most, as she was wearing the same splash print sequin dress, which I purchased last week.

Selita Ebanks really gave us the wow factor, wearing an asymmetrical gown, from Matthew Williamson Spring 2009 collection, with peachy accessories.

In case you are wondering, she will be a contender for Best Dressed Of The Week.

Helena Christiansen gave us a mark 2 preview, as she wore a dress from the second installment of the Matthew Williamson for H&M collection.

She wore a sweet mini printed dress, with a belt, embroidered clutch and gold flat sandals.

Lucy Liu is normally so stylish, but on this occasion, I’m not excited about her choice.

She wore a black embroidered black tunic dress, with nude peep-toes. This is also from the second collection, but it’s not the right style fit for my Lucy.

Mary-Kate Olsen added a pop of colour with her loose purple jacket, over her asymmetrical LBD.

Her Matthew Williamson piece, was the blue studded belt, which I unfortunately couldn’t find in my size.

Alexis Bledel shunned the H&M affordable collection, and opted for a graphic print dress from Matthew Williamson Spring 2009 collection, with Sergio Rossi elasticated strappy ankle sandals.

Great choice, but I much prefer this dress with a belt, as worn on the runway and by Joy Bryant.

Here is a look as what we can expect in stores on May, 14.
