The Metropolitan Opera’s 125th Anniversary Gala

Diane Kruger was looking as radiant as ever in a strapless two-tone YSL gown. She outshone everyone at this event.

The detail on the bodice is exquisite, and the blue is electrifying.

Becki Newton is wearing a stunning pair of YSL Spring 2009 heels, which I have been lusting after since seeing them on the runway last year.

Amanda from Ugly Betty would be green with envy watching Becki walk the red carpet in a glimmering green sequined YSL Spring 2009 strapless dress.

Claire Danes looked exquisite in a silk YSL Pre-Fall 2009 navy halter gown, which had a ruched bodice, and a draped skirt.

Her hair was styled in an elegant updo, and she carried a gorgeous gold jeweled YSL clutch.

British actress Emily Mortimer wore a round-necked maroon YSL Spring 2009 dress.

Her dress was accessorized with a black velvet with bow detailed belt, which sits a little too high for my liking, as it gives her quite an unflattering shape.

Zoe Saldana is gorgeous wearing a strapless green YSL Pre-Fall 2009 gown, which had a small black bowed detailed sash.

She completed the look with a matching emerald green satin clutch.

Claudia Schiffer only just pulls off this YSL Spring 2009 dress. On most of us this full-length, high neck gown would look like a sack, but on Claudia it’s just works.

Maybe it was the YSL caged sandals and the ruby red lips, that helped perfect her look.

Ginnifer Goodwin has been a bit off on the red carpet lately. But she managed to redeemed herself with this stunning strapless YSL print gown.

I love how it flows with a slightly ruffled and tiered fishtail skirt.

Kanye West and girlfriend Amber Rose are making the most of their new-found fashion status.

Amber Rose looked quite elegant from the waist up, wearing a white wrap dress, which had a thigh-high split, revealing her tattoo.

The look was completed with a black furry stole, a black fringed clutch, and black satin pumps.

Brooke Shields was sophisticated in strapless gown. The gown had a bow detail on the bodice, which seems to be the theme of the night.

Had Mary-Kate Olsen styled her hair better, I would have really liked this look, but an Olsen isn’t an Olsen without a hint of signature scruffiness, right?

Mary-Kate wears her black kimono with a silver belt, which matched her YSL clutch.

Parker Posey opted for a burgundy gown, with a matching furry bolero. The look was complete with a multiple gold linked necklace, and a YSL clutch.

Patricia Clarkson was elegant in a blue strapless YSL gown. I adore her feathered clutch.

08.02.09 Best Dressed

2009 BAFTA Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed/Pretty in Pink Award
As I hoped and prayed Freida Pinto did not let us down on the red carpet tonight, in fact she surpassed my expectations.

As we predicted she did wear an Oscar de la Renta gown, from the Resort 2009 collection.

The pretty pink dress was the perfect colour, and the 18th century Fred Leighton jewels she wore were the perfect compliment.

I hope this run will never end.

Best Asymmetrical Gown Award
What is not to love about Marisa Tomei in her gorgeous shimmering Etro Spring 2009 asymmetrical gown?

The actress walked the red carpet without her favourite Fendi clutch, which is a good thing because it would not have worked with this gown, but what did work were her nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Brave choice for such a horrible rainy day.

Best On Trend & Best Unofficial Brand Ambassador Award
Amy Adams was on trend with her electric blue RM by Roland Mouret gown.

The mermaid gown is gorgeous. Not to over the top, very understated, very elegant. As usual Amy makes a quite impact on the red carpet.

Regular readers will notices that there is a bit of trend developing with Amy. The tends to be the unofficial brand ambassador for designers for 3 gowns, then she moves on.

Oscar de la Renta for Critic’s Choice Awards, a Pre-Golden Globe party and the Golden Globes.

Giambattisa Valli for the Motion Pictures Awards Gala, the Doubt UK Screening and the SAG Awards.

Now Roland Mouret for the Oscar nominees luncheon, the Pre-BAFTA party and now the BAFTAs.

Who will she pick next?

English Rose Award
Emily Mortimer was one of the few Brits not to stick to safe black, instead she wore a grey tiered YSL Resort 2009 gown, with a snake print bodice, and a cute velvet black bow.

Unfortunately it looks like her gown got caught in the rain.

Black Again? But I Love It Award
Kate Winslet wore a black Zac Posen mermaid gown.

Yes, I am a bit disappointed that it was not as vivacious as her electric blue Narciso Rodriguez gown, but her body is so damm amazing in this dress, that you just have to love her.

Best Vintage Award
After her pink Blumarine dress, Thandie Newton had a lot to live up too.

She does not disappoint in her black strapless vintage gown with gold detailing through-out, but I am not particularly wowed either.

Lady In Red Award
Sharon Stone was ravishing in wearing a red John Galliano Spring 2009 gown.

Not a hint of animal print. I admire her restraint.

Best Re-Run Award
We have seen this Stella McCartney gown twice before on Salma Hayek and Amanda Seyfried, but Laura Bailey’s blush pink revision is gorgeous, so all is forgiven.

Best Comeback Award
It has been a while since we saw the adorable Kylie Minogue on the red carpet in the UK, and girlfriend proved that she still has it.

She wore gold heels with her spaghetti strapped black Chanel Fall 2002 Couture dress, which had an interested detailed hem.

Just OK Award
Emma Watson is surprisingly not wearing Chanel, but Temperley London, which is a welcome relief.

That embroidered neckline is very much a trademark of Temperley, so this dress doesn’t feel particularly fresh to me as I would have hoped.

Best Necklace Award
I love the youthful glow that Goldie Hawn radiates.

She wore a black satin strapless dress – that did not squash her twins – with a stunning diamond necklace.

Best Impression of Mary Poppins Award
Meryl Streep channeled her inner Mary Poppins, as she sheltered under her umbrella from the horrendous British weather.

With her all black ensemble the legendary actress wore Fred Leighton jewels and Daniel Swarovski clutch.

Best Late Comer Award
I can not believe that I these are the only two pictures of Kristin Scott Thomas on the red carpet last night, and I had to wait until the following day to find them. I guess she arrived late on the red carpet.

Kristin looked as elegant as ever in this beaded vintage-inspired gown in midnight blue. The actress decided against fussy jewelery, opting to show off her flawless neckline instead.

Social Events Of The Week

Lorraine Schwartz hosts H.E. Yousef Al Otaiba, New York

Beyonce Knowles sure does love big earrings, and they are usually provided by Lorraine Schwartz for B’s red carpet moments. So it was no wonder the gorgeous singer was guest of honour at Lorraine’s event.

Wearing a clinging Hervé Léger gown, B literally takes my breath away. The grey is so understated, and of works well with her Lorraine Schwartz chandler earrings.

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

Dakota Fanning wears a very cute navy playsuit with a Chanel necklace. My problem is the heels. They are a bit too sex up for my liking. I would have put her in gladiator flats.

“The Pink Panther 2″ New York Premiere

Aishwarya Rai wore a Alberta Ferretti Fall 2008 black chiffon draped gown with a plunging neckline.

The stunning beauty never fails to impress on the red carpet. She wore her gown with a silver clutch, and a bedazzling diamond necklace.

From the scalloped edges of her white coat, it was easy to tell that Emily Mortimer was wearing Chloé.

The white cotton coat and embroidered white dress, are both from the Spring 2009 collection.

She complimented her dress with gold heels, and a gold clutch, but she mixed her metals opting for a diamond choker and a silver bracelet.

BAFTA Red Carpet Programme, London

Like a trooper Fearne Cotton pose for photos in the snow whilst presenting the BAFTA Red Carpet Programme at the Bafta building in London.

Her multi-coloured sequined dress is very reminiscent of Jennifer Connelly’s Balmain dress, don’t you think?
