“Sorority Row” LA Premiere

My first thought was there’s a lot of black at this premiere.

But considering 2 funerals took place in LA yesterday, I think it’s fitting that some of the stars wore black as a mark of respect.

Rumer was a shoe in for Best Dressed this week with her Zac Posen dress, but her Stella McCartney ensemble has trumped that look.

I have been rooting for Rumer for a very long while, and for the second time she gives me red carpet head-to-toe perfection.

The lace jacket hints at nudity without being tacky, whilst the black pants completes the sleek silhouette.

Her deep brunette hair is swept to the side, with jewels kept to a minimum.

If you are feeling a touch of de ja vu with this look, it’s because Stella McCartney wore the jumpsuit version of this lace look to the 2009 Costume Institute Gala.

For once Rumer isn’t upstage by her mother…

…who btw looked stunning wearing a black Oscar de la Renta Resort 2010 dress with black satin Brian Atwood pumps.

Demi Moore’s dress had a large rosette detail on the neckline, from which large ruffles cascade down the front of her dress.

So ladylike, so chic, so Demi, so glad she wore the runway belt. I’m not sure the dress would’ve worked without it.

Audrina Patridge has walked the red carpet a few times without her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch, but it was back last night.

The actress wore a black strapless textured See by Chloe dress, with a tie to the waist and a tulip skirt, with Alexander McQueen strappy sandals.

I know blondes are meant to have more fun, but I hope Audrina returns to the darker locks soon.  The blonde was cute a first, but it’s starting to lose it’s original spark.

Jamie Chung looked sassy wearing a rubbery LBD by Giorgio Armani paired with Brian Atwood heels.

The dress is interesting with those sharp details cascading from the shoulder, but what I love here is her flawless make-up.

Margo Harshman opted for a creamy Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 strapless gown.

I love the ruched bodice and the gold band on the empire-waist, she really looks so elegant in this stunning gown.

A gold clutch and her hair swept up completes this beautiful look.

I didn’t expect to see this ivory Miu Miu Spring 2008 mini dress on the red carpet again, but Jasmine Dustin gave it another outing.

It’s still such a stunning dress, but it really deserved better shoes.

Whilst everyone opted for something youthful, I think the black satin gown Briana Evigan wore was a bit of a safe option.

Caroline D’Amore wore a sexy Dolce & Gabbana trademark strapless bustier dress with a eyelet skirt.

She paired her dress with silver strappy Jimmy Choo’s and a matching clutch.

TV personality Casey Reinhardt wore a Alice + Olivia taupe dress with leg lengthening nude heels.

Sorority Row hits theaters across the US next Friday, September 11, but in the UK it comes out on September 9.

“Spread” Screening

For most of you Leighton Meester was the belle of the Teen Choice Awards ball on Sunday, but her appearance on the red carpet on Saturday wasn’t as pretty.

For me Leighton got it very wrong when she sported this Christopher Kane Resort 2010 cut-out dress.

I like dress itself with it’s nuclear explosion print – it’s beautiful chaos – but it just doesn’t work for Leighton.  She doesn’t quite have the right look to pull this off.  Her rosy glow as wavy hair feel too cutesy for this dress.

Maybe a slick back pony and smoky eyes would’ve worked better.

Usually you can look to accessories to redeem a look, but her Giuseppe Zanotti heels and Sophia Coppola for Louis Vuitton slim suede clutch do little to save her.

I guess this was just a one off and she shouldn’t be condemned for it because at least she’s daring with her red carpet choices unlike some Amanda Bynes.

I’m surprised we never saw Sharon Stone wearing this Christian Dior Resort 2008 leopard print tiered chiffon dress, such is her love for animal print and Dior, but it’s was the gorgeous Demi Moore who wore it this weekend.

I like how the dress nipped her in at the waist and wasn’t left loose fitting like the runway dress, and that she didn’t over accessorize her look.

Her favourite Gold Bally platforms pumps and a matching clutch complete her look.

Anne Heche continues to hold her own against Demi.

The actress wore a white lace fitted dress with black sash tied to the waist to given her a sexy silhouette.

As usual her hair and make-up are perfection, whilst black Jimmy Choo Hamlet suede pumps and a black clutch complete her look.

5th Annual HollyShorts Film Festival’s Opening Night Celebration, LA

Demi Moore looked stunning wearing a simple burnt orange J. Mendel dress, with an asymmetrical neckline and a jeweled detail on the hip.

Taupe pumps complete the look.

Kristen Dunst opted for a cute blue Miu Miu strapless mini dress with black pumps.

Love the dress, but dislike the uninspired pumps.

A Pea In The Pod Hosts “nicole” Launch Party, LA

Nicole Richie has her own jewelery line ‘House Of Harlow’, but she’s now designing a maternity collection for A Pea In A Pod.

The mum-to-be modeled her collection wearing a beautiful cream and black floral print silk top with a fitted black dress.

Givenchy heels and a gold pendent necklace completed the look.

“Bandslam” – LA Premiere

For some reason I’m getting a strong feeling of de ja vu with Vanessa Hudgens in this dress.

It kinda reminds me of the Moschino dress she wore at the “High School Musical 3: Senior Year” Japan Premiere.

Her Georges Hobeika dress is cute, but I can’t say I’m particularly wowed by it.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, “when did Disney stars become so boring on the red carpet?”

Alyson Michalka and Amanda Michalka are like two Paris Hilton’s in the making.

“Spread” Las Vegas Screening

Demi Moore once again supported her husband whilst he promotes his latest movie “Spread” by being his arm candy at the Las Vegas screening.

The mother of 3 looked outstanding wearing a black RM by Roland Mouret Fall 2009 wool crepe dress and gold peep-toe Bally pumps.

The dress has a pleat detailing on the bodice and a single strap that goes across the back from the left shoulder.

Event after event Demi is nothing short of perfection. She oozes class and sophistication.

On her twitter page someone wrote, “Demi to our generation you’re our Audrey Hepburn”. It would be hard to disagree.

This amazing dress is available from Net-A-Porter’s Net-A-Porter US site for $2,495, or the Net-A-Porter international site for £1,485/€1,529.

Or you can buy the runway green colour from Browns Fashion for £1,500/€1,769.08 /$2,547.

Anne Heche more than held her own alongside Demi Moore wearing a sexy gold sequined dress which hugged her curves, nipped in her waist and gave her an impressive cleavage.

Anne paired her look with black strappy heels and a gold clutch.

Her wavy hair was swept to one side and she added a tint of coral gloss to her lips.

“Mad Men” – Season 3 Premiere

January Jones was one of the first celebs to wear Andrew GN on the red carpet during awards season earlier this year, and she has stayed loyal to the designer wearing his silk navy blue Fall 2009 dress to this red carpet event.

I love that she belted the dress to give it more shape, whilst her simple black patent Brian Atwood ‘Maniacs’ pumps, and wavy blonde locks complete this sophisticated look.

You may recognise the dress to be similar to the dress Kerry Washington wore on the Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien back in June with the diamond shapes cut into the neckline which are trimmed with leather.

Christina Hendricks looked radiant as she opted for another dress by Catherine Malandrino.

This time she wore a black asymmetrical long sleeve Malandrino Fall 2009 dress with bird embroidery detail on the bodice.  This was daring choice, but she totally made it work by keeping accessories to a minimum.

“Live! with Regis and Kelly”, New York

Leslie Mann always makes an impact on the red carpet.

When she arrived for her appearance on “Live With Regis And Kelly'” in New York, she is wearing a black diamond organza sleeveless blouse, a chiffon flutter skirt and a patent leather bow belt from the Erin Fetherston Fall 2009 collection.

This is such a cute girlie look.

Bagatelle Party, Paris

Oh to be Dita von Teese.

The star is wearing one of the day dresses from Elie Saab’s Fall 2009 collection in dove grey, which she also owns in black.

Lace peep-toes and a collection of white bangles completes her look, whilst her hair and make-up are as you would expect.

“Spread” Los Angeles Premiere

Demi Moore arrived with eye-candy Ashton Kutcher wearing a Louis Vuitton lavender dress with a draped bodice and cut-out details on the side.

She completed her look with multi-coloured Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a black clutch.

My request to Rumer Willis remains the same. Please dye your hair back to black.

The young actress wore a silver metallic strapless Karen Millen dress and Christian Louboutin heels.

Anne Heche looked very sexy wearing a black satin ruched Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress with brocade and jeweled sleeves.

This is the best she has looked this year.

2009 ESPY Awards Red Carpet

Best Dressed Award
I wasn’t really expecting much from this event to be honest.

That all changed when I saw Venus Williams.  She really wowed me wearing a Mara Hoffman Spring 2009 print silk-chiffon maxi dress, with plunging neckline and tie to the waist.  She accessorized with a silver necklace and a matching ring.

Her hair was swept to one-side to add more elegance to her look.

She looks ace wouldn’t you agree?

Most Consistent Award
I only see Driver Danica Patrick on the red carpet once a year at this event and she always impresses.

Last year she wore a cute Nanette Lepore mini dress, this year she opted for a sexy yet sweetly feminine, Stella McCartney Fall 2009 dress.

The dress has been modified from the runway to be shorter plus her dress has nude panels with a lace overlay.

I love that she kept the rest of her look classic with simple jewelery, complementary two-tone black peep-toe heels and her hair styled into a beautiful updo.

Nice Dress, But I Prefer The Runway Version Award
Demi Moore looks great in her custom-made Zac Posen Resort 2010 cold-shoulder dress, but I LOVED the runway version so part of me feel a bit disappointed even though Mrs Kutcher looks super hot.

Black satin Bally platform peep-toe pumps and gold bracelets completed her look.

Most Improved Award
Serena Williams always goes for an ultra glamorous look which usually fails to work.

On this occasion her teal blue Roberto Cavalli gown is perfect.

The colour is gorgeous and the fit is flattering. For once I don’t notice her muscle, but I do notice her twins.

How does she run around a court for 2 hours? It’s gotta hurt.

De Ja Vu Award
Jaime Pressly wore a very similar Joey Tierney Couture LBD, and styled her hair in almost the same way when she attended the “I Love You, Man” LA premiere.

When she looks this drop dead gorgeous why not recreate the magic I guess.

Her skin is positively glowing.  She’s very much the yummy mummy.

Nice dress, shame about the hair Award
Miranda Kerr wore a fabulous white Calvin Klein haltered gown which looks stunning on her, but the hair doesn’t quite work for me.

I like that she tried something new as her style is usually the same, but I don’t think it suits her.

Worst Make-Up Award
WNBA player Lisa Leslie didn’t look in the mirror before she left the house. I refuse to believe anyone would knowingly leave their home looking this bad and not be aware.

YIKES!!!!

Most Zzzzzz Award
Out of all the Victoria Secret models who walk the red carpet Marisa Miller has to be the most boring, predictable and uninspiring.

Like Amanda Bynes it’s always the same formula.  Tight, short, black or white, Herve Leger or Dolce & Gabbana.

On this occasion she’s wearing a white strapless short Dolce & Gabbana dress, with a jeweled belt from the Spring 2009 collection.

Social Events Of The Week

Malaria No More Charity Party, LA

Dazzling Demi Moore wore a white crochet Andrew GN Spring 2009 summer dress, which she accessorized with the runway cuff and silver strappy heels.

The actress kept her hair slicked back in a bun, and the only other accessory she need was her sexy hubby.

“Live with Regis and Kelly”, New York

Emma Watson was spotted exiting the “Live with Regis and Kelly” studio earlier this week wearing a Jason Wu Resort 2010 ensemble.

The ensemble included a jersey chiffon-edged tank and a nude twist-pleat pencil skirt.

Her look was complete with two-tone ‘Bruno Frisoni for Jason Wu’ grey heels.

The shoes are from the first collaboration between the two designers, and were shown during Jason Wu’s Resort 2010 presentation.

I love that cute black headband which completes her look.

Out & About, New York

Hayden Panettiere causes a stir outside her hotel in New York as she made her way to “Live with Regis and Kelly”, wearing a stunning pale blue Zac Posen dress which had an intricate pearl and gem embellished waistband.

She paired her gorgeous dress with tumbling waves and Christian Louboutin heels.

Jaguar XJ Launch Party, London

Elle Macpherson is known as ‘The Body’ which she shows off wearing a super-short, sequined one-shoulder Herve Leger Camille beaded dress with blush pink Christian Louboutin peep-toe platforms.

“500 Days Of Summer” New York Screening

Hilary Rhoda also wore a look from the Jason Wu Resort 2010 collection.

Her look consisted of a grey tee, with a solid colour coral draped skirt with a black belt.

The model is glowing. I wonder if she just got back from vacation.

Leighton Meester works this colourful red and purple houndstooth Emilio de la Morena shift dress.

As her dress grabs all the attention, Leighton wisely keeps accessories to a minimum and make-up neutral.

Her look is complete with Alexandre Birman python peep-toe booties.

It’s a nice dress but for some reason I just don’t like it on Leighton.

“I Love You Beth Cooper” New York Screening

Here is another fab look for Hayden Panettiere. This time she wore an ivory Andy & Deb dress which she accessorized with a Nancy Gonzalez clutch, Giuseppe Zanotti Design pewter pumps plus Slane & Slane small bee omega earrings and ring.

It’s been a hectic week for Hayden but she’s never looked flustered, just very well dressed without putting a foot wrong.

Three-O Vodka Bubble Launch Event, New York

Khloe Kardashian totally ruins this black and white Alice + Olivia fan dress.

The dress comes with a belt which holds all the detail together without it, the dress is sadly a hot mess.

Case and point.
