Cartier 100th Anniversary in America Celebration


I wasn’t a fan of the Calvin Klein dress Eva Mendes wore the Parson Fashion Benefit on Wednesday night, but Eva totally redeems herself in this gold metallic Azzaro Fall 2009 long-sleeved backless dress.

What really makes this look, are her complimentary accessories. The stand-out piece was her Giuseppe Zanotti Special Edition crystal strap sandals, which Heidi Klum wore earlier this week in black.


Kate Hudson continues to astound me when it comes to her red carpet choices. Whenever she hits the red carpet, she commands your attention.

She has ‘it’…that indescribable thing her mother possesses, which totally wows you.

She was breathless last night in a floor-length black Rachel Roy Fall 2009 gown with cutaway panels, showing us how much she has been working out.

Like all the other attendees she is wearing Cartier jewels, but I’m totally in love with her dazzling necklace.


You may remember Zoe Saldana was the first to wear Prabal Gurung on the red carpet, and introduce us to this talented designer.

His collection continues to make an impact with Rachel Weisz looking luscious wearing a cream strapless Prabal Gurung Fall 2009 dress, with a pleated black striped draping detail from her black patent belt.

I would have preferred strappy sandals to her Alexander Wang pumps, but I don’t want to focus on what I don’t like too much, because Rachel looks so gorgeous.


Speaking of gorgeous Demi Moore also wore a Prabal Gurung Fall 2009 dress, giving Prabal the unofficial title of ‘Designer of the Night‘.

Demi’s wore an asymmetrical black dress, with cream stripes, showing off her magnificent legs, putting tight wearing Anne Hathaway to shame.

She has been walking the red carpet for years, not all of them were good, but in recent years she has been consistently fabulous, and on trend.


I love the candy coloured paillettes on the shoulder of Tory Burch’s pink polka dotted Lanvin Resort 2009 dress.

Yet another fabulous consistent look from Tory.


Erin Fetherston walked the red carpet wearing a her own glittering bell-bottom pants from her Spring 2009 collection.


I have updated this post, as I was unfortunately wrong in iding Anne Hathaway’s dress as Louis Vuitton. It was actually Jill Stuart.

Anne shows us how incredibly long her legs are in custom Jill Stuart navy dress, with a delicate lace overlay.

I would have never have put Anne in this dress, but for what it’s worth, she makes it work.

Not crazy about her hairstyle though.

I love the pants, this is a bold look, but I prefer how they were presented on the runway.


It’s brown, it’s bland, it’s boring, it’s shapeless, it’s sappy, so it must be Jessica Biel.

Some will say that she has Justin Timberlake on her arm she doesn’t need to try hard. I would whole-heartedly disagree. Note to Jessica, MUST TRY HARDER.

Who Wore Zac Posen Better? Demi Moore or Bijou Phillips


Demi Moore arrived at the Trump International Hotel and Tower Dubai Launch in New York last June, wearing a cobalt blue Zac Posen Trickle halter dress with a large ruffle cascading down the skirt.

Demi carried a black clutch, whilst mixed her metals by wearing silver Ivanka Trump jewels, with gold peep-toe heels.

Actress Bijou Phillips wore the same dress in chartreuse, when she attended the New York Times Fashion Week Photo Diary by Eric Ray Davidson in LA last month.

I love the dress in both colours, but Bijou’s pewter accessories were consistent, so she wins this for me.


Net-A-Porter have the cobalt blue dress on their US site for $1,800, or the international site for £1,126/€1,498.30.

Social Events Of The Week

“Two Lovers” Screening, New York

I continue to be baffled by Taylor Momsen. She is such a pretty girl, but she hides behind that think eye make-up and blunt bangs.

The dress is quite short, but she is old enough to get away with it.

Her all black look is contrasted with a pair of neon pink Alexander McQueen Heart peep-toe pumps.

“Crips And Bloods: Made In America”, LA

Jessica Alba wore a gorgeous blue asymmetrical stamped cloqu̩ silk Lanvin dress with hook Рeye waist gathering.

I am loving the look, but the tights and Dior kills don’t quite work with this dress.

“Happy Tears” Press Conference, Berlin Film Festival

Demi Moore wore a navy and white polka dot Michael Kors Spring 2009 dress with red heels.

This is a non fussy clean look, which suits her perfectly.

“Happy Tears” Premiere, Berlin Film Festival

She then upped the glamour for the premiere, wearing a silver Escada Pre-Fall 2009 cocktail dress column dress, which had beautiful Indian hand embroidered detail with Sergio Rossi heels.

Forever Enthralled, Berlin Film Festival

Zhang Ziyi dazzled in a Gothic-esqe Zac Posen Fall 2008 gown, with a poufy skirt.

She was iced-out with stunning jewels, but she kept warm with a cropped black jacket.

Unveiling of Southwest Airlines’ SI One Airplane

Bar Refaeli looked hot wearing a Balenciaga leather and tweed biker jacket with black skinny jeans and pleated Christian Louboutin booties.

“Notorious” Premiere, Berlin Film Festival

Angela Bassett could quite easily pass off as Kerry Washington’s mother, or older sister.

Like Kerry, Angela oozes a graceful elegance on the red carpet.

She wore a stunning silver asymmetrical gown, with a pleated bodice an a jeweled brooch on the waist.

Cheri Premiere, Berlin Film Festival

With her sexy tousled and black RM by Roland Mouret dress, Michelle Pfeiffer looked simply stunning.

I loved the dress asymmetric neckline and the jeweled brooch.

An effortlessly glamour look for the legendary actress.

The Huffington Post Pre-Inaugural Ball

I never imagined I would see this blue velvet Alexander McQueen Fall 2008 coat, with gold embroidery on the red carpet, but of course it would be Trudie Styler who’d make it happen.

Trudie is not afraid of taking risks. They don’t alway pay off, but I really do like what she has done here.

She looks regal, like a queen without her tiara, but she would have to lose those gold hooped earrings.

When I first saw Kerry Washington in this gold Jasmine di Milo Fall 2007 dress, with the sheer yoke I hated it. But to be honest it has grown on me. There is something quite futuristic and McQueen-esqe about it.

Kerry was safely consistent last year, so it’s nice to see her wear something with a bit of an edge.

The Jasmine di Milo Fall 2007 collection seems like it’s having a bit of a revival. First Rihanna, now Kerry.

She completes her look with a black Mary Norton clutch, with gold detailing.

Demi Moore arrived with her hubby, wearing a stunning silver and black sequined dress, which she wore with the heavenly Christian Louboutin Eugenie satin pumps.

Jessica Alba wore black pants and a black tank, but she brighten up her look with a gold blazer, gold peep-toes, and a gold Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch.

Marisa Tomei wore a black dress with bronze bubble hem. She completed the look with black tights, pumps and her Fendi Borderline satin clutch.

Shakira wore a strapless royal blue Carolina Herrera gown with black detailing on the side.

Kate Walsh arrived wearing a strapless Missoni floral printed dress, with brown sequined bodice.

The Inaugural Ball’s Red Carpets

MTV and ServiceNation’s “Be The Change: Live From The Inaugural Ball”

Demi Moore continues to blow me away.

She looks outstanding wearing a black strapless Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2009 cocktail dress, with a folded detail on the front of her skirt.

Her hair was wavy, make-up flawless, and she is starting to become one of my girl crushes.

Rosario Dawson showed off her enviable hourglass figure, wearing a body-con black satin Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Samantha Harris looked chic in a Farah Angsana Fall 2008 red chiffon gown with a pleated bodice.

The Creative Coalition’s 2009 Inaugural Ball

Anne Hathaway wore this red chiffon Dior gown, which had a gold embellishment on the empire line.

I do like the dress, but had the plunge not been so low, and had her shoulders been down instead of hunched up, I would have liked this even more.

I adore this strapless nude multi-tiered gown that Rachael Leigh Cook wore last night.

The dress is ultra-feminine with ruching on the bodice to add the floaty, girlie look.

Kim Raver wore a silvery strapless J. Mendel gown, with embellished detail on the bodice. She matched her dress with a silver clutch and a tasseled silver necklace.

Desperate Housewives actress Dana Delany was very elegant in a olive taffeta gown.

Alfre Woodard who also stared in Desperate Housewives, wore a Pamella Roland elegant white silk crepe strapless evening gown with a ruched bodice.

The Inaugural Purple Ball

Ashley Judd wore a silver one-shouldered Monique Lhuillier Spring 2008 gown with a bubbled tiered detail on the skirt.

12.01.09 Best Dressed

2009 Golden Globe Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
What more can be said about the stunning Olivia Wilde, that has not been said already?

She was one of the first to hit the red carpet in her exquisite Reem Acra Bridal Spring 2008 gown.

The gown had an jewel detail on the hip, and a gorgeous ruffled skirt.

Most Dramatic Award
Finally some Versace Spring 2009 on the red carpet.

January Jones was one of the few to bring drama to the red carpet wearing a Versace one-shouldered gown, with gold trim folds for added detail.

Biggest Hair Award
Drew Barrymore was stunning on the red carpet. Her hair was teased into a big style ala Marylin Monroe.

Her grey/blue John Galliano gown hung delicately off her shoulder, as she channeled Old Hollywood.

Best Gown Award
Maggie Gyllenhaal looked charming wearing a blue leopard print Lanvin Spring 2009 asymmetrical gown, which was presented on the runway in a much shorter style.

Best Strapless Gown Award
Jennifer Morrison’s electric blue Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2009 was beautifully complimented with her blue stone Lorraine Schwartz earrings, which were made specially for the dress.

Best Dressed Brit Award
Kate Winslet did us Brits proud, not only in the style stakes wearing this YSL strapless gown. But by also winning the Best Supporting Actress award for The Reader.

She sparkled in Chopard jewels.

The Turn Back Time Award
I don’t know how Demi Moore does it, but she must bottle it, and sell it.

Demi showed us why she is married to a much younger man, when she walked the red carpet wearing this cute pink Christian Dior Spring 2009 haltered gown.

The actress turned back the clock at least 20 years.

Best Black Award
Evan Rachel Wood’s Elie Saab Fall 2006 Couture black tiered gown, was by far the best black dress on the red carpet, as it shimmered as walked.

Again there is not a hit of Dita von Teese.

Best Asymmetrical Dress Award
I am so proud of America Ferrera, because she didn’t wear black, as I was expecting her to.

Instead she opted for this silver asymmetrical Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2009 dress, which was actually presented in black.

I love the gathered detail on the skirt, and the embellished detail on the neckline.

Most Vibrant/Best Red Award
Eva Longoria’s red Reem Acra gown, more than stood out against the red carpet. The actress who is just recovering from a cold, showed no signs of illness as she looked red hot.

She completed her look with a Daniel Swarovski silver clutch.

Most Improved Award
I really love this Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2009 gown on Rumer Willis.

Finally she has found a dress that compliments her hair.

Most Va Va Voom Award
I thought Hayden Panettiere looked outstanding, as she brought out the sex kitten wearing this Gianfranco Ferré Spring 2008 strapless eggplant gown.

This dress may look familiar, and that’s because it’s from the same collection as the dress Jennifer Morrison wore to the People’s Choice Awards.

Best Floral Award
Jenna Fischer looked ethereal in a multi floral print silk chiffon V-neck Zuhair Murad Resort 2009 gown with crystal embellished waist.

She completed her look with Chopard jewels.

Best Curves Award
Salma Hayek wore a figure-hugging Bottega Veneta gown, which shows us that my sexy senorita is back to her beautiful best.

She completes her look with Boucheron jewels.

If It Ain’t Broke Don’t Fix It/Another Strapless Gown Award
Kate Beckinsale is starting to become really predictable.

Yes she has a body to die for, and look fabulous in this J. Mendel gown. But I hope for her next red carpet appearance she wears something other than a figure-hugging strapless gown.

Best Over 40 Award
It not all about the youngsters. Kristin Scott Thomas more than held her own on the red carpet wearing a silk champagne Lanvin gown with sash neck-tie.

Good, But Not Great Award
Angelina Jolie’s shimmering Atelier Versace gown with a thigh-high split is not black – thankfully.

Best Couture Award
Anne Hathaway’s Armani Privé Fall 2006 gown was embroidered with Swarovski crystals. I wanted to be more wowed by her dress, but she does look absolutely stunning.

Best Necklace Award
Beyonce was not going to take any risks tonight, so she returned to her old friend Elie Saab who created this stunning strapless Spring 2008 Couture embroidered gown.

For those of you who watched the red carpet show on E!, you would have noticed that the dress was a little tight around the hips on B.

I really liked Beyonce necklace, which complimented the jeweled detail on the gown.

Best Colour Co-Ordination Award
I love how Christina Applegate complimented her yellow Roberto Cavalli strapless gown with yellow Lorraine Schwartz jewels and yellow diamond clutch.

Best Nude Award
Nude dress and gowns were very popular at this event, but for me Elizabeth Banks’ J. Mendel Spring 2009 ruffled gown, stood out the most.
