Louis Dundas Centre Launch Party

Elizabeth Hurley was spotted leaving the Louis Dundas Centre Launch Party at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London last night glowing in a Versace Fall 2009 aqua gown.

I love this stunning one-shoulder satin gown which has paillettes covering the shoulder and part of the bodice.  She really knows how to work a Versace gown.

Silver accessories complete this amazing look.

Liz + Versace = Perfection.

Tana and Gordon Ramsay left this event hand in hand.

He scrubs up well in a dark grey suit, whilst Tana wore a black Victoria Beckham Spring 2009 fitted dress with maroon strappy sandals.

Love the shoe choice.

Abigail Clancy is wearing a sexy Alexander Wang draped mini dress, but for once I can not see her underwear.

This must be a first.

The WAG wore her nude and black draped dress with black strappy sandals as she posed with her guest who wore a lace LBD and Jimmy Choo heels.

Jade Jones and Emma Bunton are like childhood sweethearts. They’ve been together for as long as I can remember.

It was bitterly cold in London last night, so unlike the rest who dared to show a bit of flesh, Emma was more covered up wearing a red dress under a black blazer.

Jade looked very dapper in his pinstriped navy suit.

2009 GQ Men Of The Year Awards

Sporting longer locks which were swept to the side, Lily Allen was named “Woman of the Year” and the “2009 GQ Men Of The Year Awards” in London last night.

The face of Chanel “Coco Cocoon” bag collection walked the red carpet wearing a black sheer double strapped Chanel Resort 2010 gown.

Had Lily wondered what that extra piece of material was for on the front of her gown, she’ll wonder no more when she sees her picture in the papers this morning.

Many of you are horrified that Lily is the face of Chanel, and when she ruins a perfectly wonderful gown like this I have to agree.

Freida Pinto makes a vast improvement from her last outing, which lets face it wouldn’t have been too difficult.

I love that she took a risk with this Christopher Kane black layered dress, but the hair is a bit too prim and proper for such an edgy look.

The actress pairs her dress with Rupert Sanderson Khyber cutout sandals.

I would’ve much rather seen Freida wear something more colourful, but I think she just pulls this off.

Louise Redknapp also opted for a shortened Christopher Kane Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

Her mesh dress with black velvet trims was paired with YSL Trib Two heels and Bottega Veneta clutch.

Katherine Jenkins appears to love the Victoria Beckham dress collection as much as the designer herself, as this is the 2nd VB dress we’ve seen her wear.

This time she opted for violet Giral strapless shot silk dress.

I’m guessing Katherine likes this collection so much because the dresses caters for those with a larger bust.

When I tried on a strapless dress from Victoria’s Spring 2009 collection I could barely fill the bodice.

The only way I recognised that Gemma Arterton was wearing Louis Vuitton was by her clutch and heels.

For some reason the LV pizazz is lost on Gemma, and this ruffle collared jacket suddenly becomes quite ordinary.

I just feel like raising the collar, its not meant to be so flat.

Victoria Hesketh aka Little Boots was one of my favourites at this event wearing a Josh Goot multi coloured printed ruched mini dress.

The surprising feature is that the back of the dress and sleeves are plain black.

The singer completes her look with an Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch.

Pixie Lott opted for a bedazzling Collette Dinnigan Spring 2009 mini dress coved in diamanté embellishments.

Ankle boots and studded cuffs complete the look.

We first saw this dress worn by Taylor Swift.

Much like Leighton Meester’s MTV Movie Awards Emilio De La Morena dress, Alexandra Burke’s black and white mesh Emilio Pucci dress is quite cheeky.

I’m really scared to see what this dress looked like from the back.

A turtleneck? In yesterday’s soaring heat?

I feel hot just looking at Kelly Osbourne wearing this Jasmine di Milo’s Fall 2009 dress.

Dita von Teese will be full of admiration for Kelly Brook’s waist reducing dress.

The pink rubber printed Atsuko Kudo Couture dress appears to have a built in corset to give Kelly an hour glass shape.

I bet she gave off a sexy wiggle when she walked in this dress.

Even though Eva Mendes was the “big star” at this event I was more impressed by people like Little Boots and Kelly Brook for giving us something new.

Eva wore a stunning maroon shimmering gown.

The colour was sublime on her, but the wow factor was missing. Eva can do this kind of look in her sleep.

Daisy Lowe opted for a space-aged look, which she paired down with black pumps.

Rachel Stevens hair and make-up is quite outstanding. I love the transformation maybe the newlywed decided to spice up her image.

Her LND with a voluminous skirt is oh so cute.

Tamara Ecclestone wore a striking Preen black and white lightening-print bandage-style dress paired with black ankle boots and a matching clutch.

Elizabeth Hurley’s strapless but dress is cute enough, but why I’m I so bored?

Social Events Of The Week

Cartier / Art of Elysium LOVE Bracelet Event, New York

Eva Mendes combines timeless chic with modern elegance.

She looked sophisticated wearing a Michael Kors folded shift dress, with a gorgeous metallic fabric.

Her dress was paired with ultra-high black Casadei platform heels and a selection of the sponsors jewelery.

Children Uniting Nations 4th Annual National Conference Gala Dinner, Washington

Gabrielle Union wore a silk chiffon strapless BCBG raspberry gown with a bejeweled detail on the empire waist.

The colour is stunning against her skin. She looks as beautiful as ever.

Launch of the Exclusive Deluxe Version of The E.N.D, New York

Fergie wore a taupe Max Azria sateen origami strapless dress, with black Walter Steiger heels.

What I love here is her corset-like belt, which give the dress a edgier look.

Fergie is never boring on the red carpet, and I love her for that.

Camilla And Marc Dinner

WOOOHoooo, we have a smile.

Many of you have noted that Ginnifer Goodwin never smiles. We get the odd smirk from time to time, but this is a full on grin.

The host of this dinner, wore a white one-shouldered white mini with black open-toe Mechante of London ankle boots.

It’s a shame she didn’t have enough time to press her dress though.

I’ve been a great admirer of Lynn Collins style since she burst onto the scene. I love her Camilla & Marc LBD, with the lace insert and tiered skirt, but the hair and make-up really let her down.

Also I’m tiring of booties with everything.

Catherine Malandrino Boutique Launch At Harrods, London

Catherine Malandrino was in London to launch her new boutique within Harrods departments store. The designer epitomizes everyday chic wearing a gorgeous green pleated empire waist dress from her own collection.

This dress is captivating with its ruffled sleeves. It’s the perfect day to night dress.

Elizabeth Hurley opted for a Catherine Malandrino black strapless dress with multi coloured embroidered rosettes at bust and multicolored banding at the waist.

I wouldn’t have had Liz down as a Malandrino girl as she is so high maintenance, but she looks great in this dress.

Social Events Of The Week

“Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian” Washington Premiere

Amy Adams wore a RM by Roland Mouret Fall 2009 gown, for her premiere.

I love the pin-tuck detailing, and the pale lilac colour against her porcelain skin, but her hair isn’t glowing like it normally does.

The Caudwell Children Butterfly Ball, London

Elizabeth Hurley wore a silk Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2009 pink strapless gown, which was gathered above the waist with a circular clasp.

She kept her jewelery to a minimum, with a silver bracelet which matched her VBH envelope clutch.

“Seven Days” Tokyo Stage Greeting, Japan

It’s just not fair that Yunjin Kim looks so flawless with such minimal make-up.

The Lost actress opted for a black Gucci Spring 2009 asymmetrical dress, which like Liz’ gown, was gathered at the waist with a gold clasp.

Gucci Iman metallic T-strap sandals from the Fall 2009 collection, complete the look.

46664 & The Nelson Mandela Foundation Launches “Mandela Day”, LA

Marisa Tomei never fails to pull out all the stops on the red carpet, but this outfit doesn’t completely work for me. I love how she’s working the 80s shoulder pads in her blazer, but I’m not so crazy about the pants.

The masculine suit is made demure by a tidy up-do, and a sheer blouse.

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

Teri Hatcher opted for a classic, figure-hugging Moschino Cheap and Chic black strapless crepe dress with microdots.

This is a classic case of making a big statement with a simple LBD.
