Red Carpet Fashion Awards

I wasn’t surprised to see Tinsley Mortimer at this show.

The socialite wears a lot of Dior pieces on the red carpet and for this occasion she opted for a navy and gold halter neck silk top, with a matching sheer skirt.

The pop of colours came from her self designed yellow clutch and a her bubble gum pink nails.

In the absence of Dior queen Charlize Theron, I was looking to Marion Cotillard for the front row wow moment. It never came.

The actress arrived wearing an all black Dior look which I found to be quite dull.

Many of you were saying that Dasha Zhukova always has the same expression, well here you have a smile.

The editor-in-chief of Pop magazine looked extremely casual wearing a black tank top, striped skirt and black sandals to attend this show.

Don’t people dress up in couture to go to couture shows anymore?

Co-founder of fashion label Kova & T, editor-in-chief of Pop magazine – the first issue will be released in September – and fashion darling Dasha Zhukova has to be one of my Top 10 favourite fashionistas.

I haven’t blogged about her in a while but I was in awe of her two stunning looks from last week.

My favourite was Dasha’s multi-coloured Marios Schwab Fall 2009 dress with a 3D optical crystal-print. She totally made the dress her own by modifying it from the runway version to make it a one-shoulder dress.

She wore her stunning dress with a Pauric Sweeney clutch and Jimmy Choo Glenys python sandals.

Dasha attended the Tesla Launch Party recently wearing what I believe is a Chloé single breasted blazer, Sonny Crockett style, with a white tank, denim shorts, snakeskin heels, a gold clutch and a gold bracelet.

I  love this effortlessly sexy casual look.  I’m definitely going to recreate this look.

Can’t wait to see more from her.

Claire Danes arrived at the Film Independent’s Spirit Awards held at Santa Monica Beach earlier this year wearing a two tone Lanvin Spring 2009 strapless bustier dress, with a gathered skirt.

Her look was made more interesting with a nude Lanvin necklace from the same collection, but dialed down with uninteresting black peep-toes.

Dasha Zhukova opted for the same Lanvin dress when she attended “The Hermitage 20/21 Dinner at Sotheby’s” in London back in April.

She added a simple gold necklace, taupe heels and a box clutch.

Funny woman Chelsea Handler for once wowed me at the “Women In Film’s 2009 Crystal + Lucy Awards” in California when she walked the red carpet wearing the same dress.

This has to be the most sophisticated I have ever seen Chelsea look, as she paired her dress with champagne heels and a Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

Claire is ruled out because of her uninspiring heels.

Dasha wins because she could make a black bin liner look chic, plus her accessories complemented her look better than the other two.

The Hermitage 20/21 Dinner, London

Oh Dasha Zhukova, Best Dressed Of The Week was going to be difficult enough without you arriving at this event looking spectacular.

The Russian beauty wore a two tone Lanvin Spring 2009 strapless bustier dress, with a gathered skirt, which Claire Danes wore to the 2009 Film Independent Spirit Awards.

Champagne heels complete the look.

Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Dinner

Silver harem pants, and a black turtle neck on some would look tragic.

On Diane Kruger? Magnificent.

I’m not even going to attempt this look, as she owns it.

Debra Messing on the other hand, doesn’t have my admiration. Instead I will give her my pity.

Nothing good is happening from the neck down.

Mary-Kate Olsen wore a loose, beaded tunic dress, which one would assume is vintage, but it’s actually from Nina Ricci’sFall 2009 collection.

LOVE the nude make-up, and the way she accessorized with a thick black and gold belt, to give the dress shape.

She added a pop of red via her Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

Kerry Washington opted for a classic tweed Chanel Spring 2009 boat neck dress, with a silver clutch and eggplant heels.

“Obsessed” Screening, New York

I love the detail of the origami folds on Ali Larter’s strapless cream satin Blumarine Fall 2009 dress, plus her Balenciaga strappy sandals, but the hair ruins everything.

Tous Boutique Opening, Barcelona

Kylie arrived at the Tous boutique opening in Barcelona, wearing in a floor-sweeping, black strapless Herve Leger dress with white stripes at the bust for a maritime-inspired look.

The Alexander Wang suede and leather motorcycle jacket is officially the celebrity ‘must have’ item for 2009, after 2 more ladies wore it last week.

Lindsay Lohan was the first to wear the jacket whilst running errands in LA with a long black tee, tights and boots, followed by Kelly Osbourne, who channeled her inner Harry Potter, wearing her jacket with ballet flats, and black tapered pants.

Blake Lively wore her jacket, much the same as Lindsay, with a boots, tights, a mini skirt and a cardigan.

Rihanna dressed up her jacket, adding a white tee, her black Citizens of Humanity Avedon skinny jeans, and her Balmain studded crystal sandals, which coincidently are the same two pieces worn in her WWIB? contest with Victoria Beckham.

Christina Milian wore hers over a white maxi dress last week whilst having lunch with boyfriend.

My Best Dressed of last week, Dasha Zhukova, wore her jacket last week to the Fetish by Christian Louboutin exhibition in Moscow last week, with an all black ensemble.

I really don’t think this look works with for Christina nor Kelly.

I also feel this jacket was not intended for a polished look, so that discounts Dasha. So in the end it comes down to Lindsay, Blake and Rihanna.

I know this is not going to be the popular choice, but I feel Lindsay was the only one to wear this jacket as it was intended, casually, effortlessly, and with a rock ‘n roll attitude, so she wins for me.


This Alexander Wang two-tone leather jacket, has an asymmetric zip, three-quarter length sleeves and zipper chest pocket. It’s a must have for celebs, and looks good when rocked with black. You can buy it now from Shopbop.com for $1,495.
