Who Wore Herve Leger Better? Heidi Montag or Elsa Pataky

Heidi Montag is a huge fan of Herve Leger bandage dresses. It wouldn’t be a surprised if she owned one in every colour.

Mrs Pratt joined many other reality TV stars, and D list celebrities at Maxim’s 10th Annual Hot 100 Celebration in Santa Monica last week.

She wore her dress with silver accessories, including a Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

One of the many beautiful stars of Cannes Film Festival, Elsa Pataky, climbed on board Montblanc’s private boat, were they hosted a party this week.

She relaxed on the boat, kicking off her heels, as walking the red carpet in Louboutin’s all day must be agonizing.

I feel Elsa wore this dress because she liked it, rather than Heidi’s who only wore it for attention, plus I hate the necklace Heidi wore with it, so Elsa wins for me.

The Herve Leger Adrienne bandage mini dress was uploaded to the international Net-A-Porter site on Wednesday, and it’s already sold out.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Inglourious Basterds” Premiere

I secretly knew she wouldn’t let me down.

Tthats 3 years in a row she’s wowed at Cannes.

Angelina Jolie walked the red carpet in not only colour, but this season colour – nude.

Her chiffon one-sleeved Versace Fall 2008 gown is so beautiful, delicate and feminine yet she’s still exudes her usual sex appeal.

Those famous full lips are red divine, and her look is complete with champagne heels.

This is definitely one of her best looks to date.

Diane Kruger was equally radiant, if not more so than Angelina.

The stunning actress walked the red carpet in a custom made ivory silk chiffon Marchesa gown with flutter sleeves.

I love the cowl back dress with silver floral embroidered detail.

The side swept bun, and simple diamonds quietly scream elegance.

Best Dressed of The Week just became even harder.

Elsa Pataky swept the red carpet with her black Elie Saab Spring 2009 Couture strapless gown.

Elsa likes to be a sex kitten on the red carpet, but with a few diamonds here and there and her hair pulled back she looks very demure.

I would’ve loved to have seen her in another colour gown, as she wore black to the Chopard “Cascade” perfume launch.

Asia Argento plays the femme fatale wearing a bold Armani Prive Spring 2009 strapless gown with a blood red fringed skirt.

She paired her devilish look with matching shoes, and bright red lipstick for an eye-catching pout.

I’m surprised to say that I kinda like Sharon Stone in this Balmain Fall 2009 gown.

It shows off her body – which looks amazing – and she’s not wearing some tacky animal print which she’s usually so fond of.

For once Sharon, I don’t hate.

I’m happy to see Dita von Teese wearing something from the Christian Dior Spring 2009 Couture collection, but I’m disappointed she didn’t pick one of the more colourful risky pieces.

I hope those gowns aren’t destined to only be editorial gowns.

Dita wore her one-shouldered dress with a red clutch to match her perfect pout.

Cute, but safe for Dita.

Emma de Caunes also opted for a black Elie Saab dress, but her embellished cocktail dress was from the Fall 2009 collection.

Judge Shu Qi looked angelic wearing a white Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 gown, which had a gold chain detail embellishing the trim of the bodice.

German actress Jana Pallaske wore an eventful Paule Ka Spring 2009 strapless dress on the red carpet with bandage straps, black contrasting bodice, and feathered hem.

There’s a lot going on, but it’s fun and fruity.

French actress Frédérique Bel also opted for a Paule Ka Spring 2009 creation.

Hers was less cutesy, and more risqué with the cut-out panel showing off her toned abs.

Natasha Poly’s Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 strapless black and grey gown has plenty of frou frou in the skirt with the ruffles and tulle layers.

In this supermodel face-off Natasha’s soft make-up and sultry smile wins me over.

Robin Wright Penn opts for her second Narciso Rodriguez gown of Cannes Film Festival.

This time it’s refreshing white crepe gown, with sleek lines to give her a beautiful silhouette.

Michelle Yeoh opted for a beige strapless Roberto Cavalli gown with stunning gold accessories to compliment the gold embroidered details on her bodice.

I’ve never been a fan of Joss Stone’s style.

She over did the hippy maxi look, but here she opts for a yellow haltered dress which does nothing for her.

Her yellow dress was paired with green heels, with a pink tip. !?!?!?

"Chopard "Cascade" Perfume Launch

Elsa Pataky arrived at this event during Cannes Film Festival dripping with some gorgeous Chopard jewels, and one of my favourite Elie Saab gowns, from his Fall 2009 collection.

I saw this gown at a press day for Elie Saab recently, and you wouldn’t believe how heavy it is, with all the intricate beading.

Elsa’s gown didn’t have the black underlay, like the runway version, but the gown is still retains it’s elegance.

Devon Aoki wore a luscious lime green, Roberto Cavalli strapless gown.

As much as I love a bare neck with a strapless gown, and an updo, her Chopard necklace is exquisite, and enhances the beauty of her look.

Alessia Piovan wore a gorgeous chiffon Alberta Ferretti teal gown, which was equally spectacular to the gown she had worn earlier on that night, by the same designer.

In Elsa Pataky’s Closet – Dolce & Gabbana


Elsa Pataky sported 2 great Dolce & Gabbana looks this week, during Milan Fashion Week.

Whilst she was in the Dolce & Gabbana VIP room prior to their Fall 2009 presentation, Elsa wore a strapless satin Dolce & Gabbana barqoue dress.

This stunning dress has a built-in bustier, with a gorgeous beige, gold and rose floral fabric, which she wore with gold platform heels.

This dress is available from Luisaviaroma.com for €1,895.


Her second look was another Dolce & Gabbana strapless baroque dress, this time with black and gold baroque fabric.

This is what Elsa wore to the Extreme Beauty In Vogue party, which was co-hosted by Dolce & Gabbana. This look she matched with black and gold platformed heels, and was one of the sexiest looks of the night.

You can also purchase this dress from Luisaviaroma.com for €1,794.

"Extreme Beauty" In Vogue and Dolce & Gabbana Party

Eva Herzigova is the only one to really stand out at this event, because her Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 corset dress, is so different from her previous look earlier yesterday.

I really hated this dress on the runway, because it looked so bulky, but Eva rocks it.

Eva Mendes opted for a red Dolce & Gabbana dress, which was accented with the rosette belt, sans jewels.

She could have really sparkled at this night time event with some added bling.

Fredia Pinto also disappointed in a Dolce & Gabbana pink mini dress with a jeweled rosette belt. That’s because it was very similar to the dress she had worn earlier in the day.

Even the shoes are the same.

I love Kate Hudson’s golden sparkling ensemble, even the cape. But the hair is too mumsy for this look imo.

New mum Naomi Watts looked the most relaxed at this event, wearing a Helmet Lang-esqe suit, with a ruffled collared blouse.

I love the cropped tapered pants, and the turned up sleeves.

Scarlett Johansson continues to slip for me. Although her body looks amazing in this grey animal print dress, she lacks any spark.

Elsa Pataky’s black strapless mini dress with gold embroidery is gorgeous, and her platforms compliment the dress really well, but I am not crazy about her bouffant.

German model Nadja Auermann wore a satin maroon Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 dress with black floral paillettes covering the dress. Those paillettes were accentuated with ivory pearls.

This is a truly stunning creation. There is a lot going on but Nadja wears it so well.

Her fellow German model Claudia Schiffer also wore a dress from Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 collection, but hers was considerably quieter than Nadja’s, but Claudia was equally beautiful.

Miuccia Prada walked the red carpet in her own Fall 2009 collection as you would expect.

This look in very Maximus -Russell Crowe- in Gladiator.

Dolce & Gabbana’s VIP Room At Milan Fashion Week

In her first public appearance since the Oscars, Freida Pinto arrived at the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 show this afternoon, looking gorgeous wearing an ivory Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 mini dress.

The dress had a ruffled detail on one shoulder, and she wore her dress with those outstanding bejeweled belts, that were heavily featured in the Spring 2009 collection.

A black clutch and sandals completed her look.

A short while ago, I said that I was surprised when Elsa Pataky attended an event wearing all black, because this is more like the Elsa I know. Wearing bright colours, daring prints, and edgy looks.

Elsa took on one of the toughest looks from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2009 collection – the voluminous, quarter-back shouldered pieces, and totally rocked it.

Eva Mendes played it safer, and just opted for the runway belt, to go with her purple satin Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Kate Hudson opted for a chocolate Dolce & Gabbana brown suit, with black accents, but her make-up seemed to suit Eva’s look more.

Maybe they switched at the last minute.

Scarlett Johansson, the face of Dolce & Gabbana’s cosmetic line, wore a simple shimmering sheath dress, with jeweled heels and ruby red lips.

Armani 5th Avenue Store Opening

Victoria Beckham’s street is impeccable, but her red carpet style has not impressed me until last night.

The fashion designer, who has just shown her second collection in New York this week, outshone everyone on the red carpet wearing a one shouldered crystal embellished nude mini Armani dress.

I would have preferred a strappy sandals, but I do love her matching satin pumps too.

It wasn’t a surprise to see Alicia Keys at this event, as she has just a close working relationship with Giorgio Armani.

The gorgeous singer arrived wearing a long black coat, which she wore at the Max Azria show, which she removed to reveal a stunning coral Armani sheath dress.

She wore her dress with a amazing pair of jewel encrusted Armani Privé Fall 2007 slingbacks, which have a contrast bow on the side.

January Jones wore a stunning red Armani crystal embellished dress. Despite the colour, I expected something with more pizazz from Miss Jones.

Maybe it’s just the hair that is not working for me.

Zoe Saldana worked a 20s vibe with Marcel waves, which I think worked really well with her shimmering white dress.

I love the rosette detail on the shoulder.

Elsa Pataky is usually a lot more expressive on the red carpet, whether it’s too revealing, too short, or too unusual.

So imagine my surprised that she wore a black tuxedo, with a sexy sheer top. Too safe for Elsa.

Despite me fully not understanding what Molly Sims does – like Joy Bryant – I always appreciate her efforts on the red carpet.

She is always impeccable, which is why I’m really baffled by this fringed crochet number, over a black ensemble.

Across the Armani ranges, I am shocked that this is the best she could do last night.

I believe that is suppose to be red lipstick, but I am seeing orange.

This is a really nice skirt suit that Solange Knowles wore.

Nice if you are Cate Blanchett, or a lady who lunches, or someone who has the style, grace and sophistication to pull it off, but on a 20-something year old girl? NO.

And that neon pink clutch with that suit? NO, it does not work.

Does this girl have a stylist?

When will she find a balance and wear something appropriate?

If Kim Kardashian can do it, Solange has NO excuse.
