Social Events Of The Week

Hopings Got Talent Fundraising Event, London

Lily Allen looked outstanding wearing a prom-esqe red Prada dress, teamed with taupe Fendi bow-front peep-toes, and a blue quilted Chanel bag. One of many that she owns.

Her make-up was flawless, I love the a pop red on her lips, and I adore her neat black bob.

Surprisingly well put together.

Sienna Miller tried her hand at a glam rock chick look by teaming a studded Temperley London cropped jacket, a studded vest and a studded Temperley London belt with faded black skinny jeans and studded ankle boots.

I glad Sienna has managed wear a casual look that doesn’t include a hint of boho, but she has over done things with the studded details. At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if she was wearing studded pants.

Her look was completed with a Romanek crocodile clutch.

“Public Enemies” Chicago Premiere

French actress Marion Cotillard wore a very summery lilac strapless Christian Dior dress which she paired with silver open-toe heels and a double buckle belt.

A curly opdo and a brown clutch completed this stunning look.

Sam Fine’s “The Basics of Beauty” DVD Launch Party, New York

Without a single hair out of place Iman stepped a little out of her comfort-zone of glamorous gowns and tea dresses, to wear this black shimmering Derek Lam Spring 2009 jumpsuit with harem pants.

Divine as always.

2009 Los Angeles Film Festival’s Opening Night Premiere Of “Paper Man”

Christina Ricci kept her look simple wearing a purple dress with a black elasticated waist.

White pointy pumps and a quilted Chanel bag completed the look, but Christina opted out of wearing a bra.

Grand Opening Of The New BOA Steakhouse In West Hollywood, LA

Looking fabulous is really easy for Terri Seymour as the former model has a stunning figure.

Whether she’s wearing a designer gown or this strapless floral Topshop dress, it’s almost impossible for her to have an off day.

She completed her look with YSL Trib Two slingbacks.

8th Annual Four Seasons Of Hope Gala, New York

I feels like something is missing from Estelle’s Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2009 black jumpsuit.

She has a pop of colour via the purple pumps, but I’m still missing something.

Barnes & Noble Book Signing, New York

Lauren Conrad opts for a cute casual style for her New York book signing at Barnes & Noble.

The star wore a very similar look to her last book signing.  Her she wore a loose fitting black and white top with black shorts and black Christian Louboutin pumps.

Wavy hair, a single bracelet and a megawatt smile completed the look.

Social Events Of The Week

Oceana, Nautica & Vanity Fair Celebrate World Oceans Day, New York

Amber Valletta wore a strapless silver Oscar de la Renta Resort 2010 dress, which was recently presented.

The dress has an interesting origami detail on the skirt, which very much reminds me of the strapless dress Myleene Klass wore during Cannes recently.

This is a beautiful sophisticated dress, so I really don’t like how Amber has opted to toughen up her look with those black peep-toes booties.

I’ve been wondering what is it about Estelle that’s so different. She seems to be glowing lately. Then I realised that she has taken off her braces.

I love the swirly print mini dress, it has a very 60s vibe to it, but her lilac clutch, and blue bangle ruin this look for me.

The saying goes, “Before you leave the house, take one thing off.” In this case it should have been two.

Her look is paired with tan Jimmy Choo Prize t-bar sandals.

3rd Annual American Institute For Stuttering Benefit Gala, LA

I love this silver and black beaded Marc Bouwer Spring 2009 halter dress, but not on Emily Blunt.

The dress looks spectacular on the runway, because it is considerably shorter. Emily should have opted for the shorter length.

Simon Aboud Book Launch Party, London

Looking stylishly dishevelled Kate Bosworth wore an interesting painted Josh Goot Fall 2009 top, which looks like it should belong in an art gallery.

She paired her work of art with a simple black mini skirt, a gold purse and Nicholas Kirkwood booties.

8th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, LA

Angie Harmon looks amazing wearing a Ikat printed chiffon Kaufman Franco wrap dress.

I love the leather straps, as it reminds me of my favourite Michael Kors dress, which has the same detail.

Is it me or does AnnaLynne McCord just get hotter with every red carpet appearance?

This girl really knows how to make things interesting. I should be frowning that she’s wearing a simple black sheath dress, but the back detail and her elegantly coiffed hair really make this a sizzling look.

Keep it coming AnnaLynne.

Oceana Celebrates World Oceans Day, LA

January Jones’ look is ultra soft and feminine in this lemon dress.

I’m sure you will have noticed that the braided belt details on the dress, matched the braids in her hair to complete this Grecian inspired look.

I adore her make-up.

Apollo Theater’s 75th Anniversary Gala Concert & Awards Ceremony, New York

Mariah Carey please give us something new. I feel like I have seen this type of Roberto Cavalli dress on her a million times before.

2009 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Katy Perry looked sensational wearing a thigh-skimming strapless Foley + Corinna dress, adorned with an oversized bow.

Her turquoise dress was set alight with bold red lippie, sky-high blood red Casadei heels, and a red Lulu Guinness lips clutch.

You all know how I feel about tights on the red carpet, so I don’t need to go there.

Amanda Seyfried was very easily my Best Dressed at this event, where she won Film Actress of the Year.

The “Mamma Mia” actress opted for a Peter Pilotto Fall 2009 multi-coloured satin dress, which gathers and drapes from the hip.

I do wish she had worn her hair back, as a lot of the interesting detail appears on the neckline and shoulders, but her sexy strappy gladiator heels, and gold clutch more than make up for that.

Estelle usually opts for complicated, edgy ensembles, but on this occasion she opted for a very beautiful and simple Stella McCartney shell print dress

The slender star wore her dress with a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood pearl and lace peep-toe pumps.

Estelle got the Editor’s Special Award. I will guess this is for conquering America, and just being fabulous.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley oozed effortless chic. The former Burberry model wore a simple black crystal embellished Gucci Fall 2009 mini dress, with open toe shoe boots from the same collection.

Jacquetta Wheeler also wore head-to-toe Gucci. Her look consisted of a dazzling silver sequined tunic, with black leggings, which I prefer to the runway grey version.

Her rock chick look is soften by the Gucci jeweled sandals, but I love that she didn’t opt out of the large chain statement necklace, as it gives her soft rock look an edge.

The two ladies represented Frida Giannini, who was awarded Fashion Designer of the Year.

Alexa Chung, the unofficial Chanel brand ambassador, won Presenter of the Year. She wore a ruffled shouldered silk mini dress, with a nipped in waist.

There’s not point mentioning the hair, as she rarely switches things up.

Her black and white sequined Chanel Spring 2009 ankle boots are worth mentioning. I love the bejeweled oversized bows.

For once this doesn’t feel like she tried too hard, this is the effortless Alexa I once really admired.

Kylie Minogue was named Woman Of The Year and Entrepreneur Of The Year at this event.

She wore her Emanuel Ungaro LBD with a swirly gold embellishment, with a leopard print cropped Dolce & Gabbana jacket, which she paired with a large gold pendent, gold Jimmy Choo’s, and a matching clutch.

Kylie always looks like she’s stuck in the 80s. I’m not a fan of this look at all.

Writer of the Year, Sophie Kinsella looked effortlessly gorgeous wearing a floral print Christian Lacroix Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with a jewel embellished collar detail.

Her ruby red metallic heels perfected this look, making her one of the Best Dressed at this event.

Fearne Cotton never lets me down on the red carpet. She arrived wearing a Moschino red satin dress, with a huge ruffled skirt, in red Moschino pumps, which showed off her tattoo.

I love her blonde hair styled in this big frizzy wave, and her cat-eyes.

Becki Newton, Comedy Actress of the Year, opted for this cute strapless Robert Cavalli pearl-print mini dress, which showed off her killer bod.

Her hair is a bit blah, as are the heels, but she did the right thing by keeping her accessories to a minimum.

Rachel Stevens dressed appropriately for the baking hot weather we experienced in London yesterday.

She opted for a soft pink chiffon dress, with a pleated skirt, and cowl neck, which she accessorised with an Anya Hindmarch Marbled leather clutch clutch, and white T-bar heels.

Having spent some time in the US, Michelle Ryan doesn’t appear to have picked up many red carpet tips. She’s wearing a gorgeous hot pink bubble sleeved Balenciaga maxi dress, but she is not injecting much life into it.

The only thing that excites is her statement necklace.

She won UK TV Actress of the Year at this event.

Kirsty Gallacher continues to fall down in my estimation. This time the TV presenter wore a asymmetrical body-con dress with fabric that was so sheer, you would see her nipples.

Runway To “MoMA’s Party In The Garden” Estelle In Alexander McQueen & Rachel Roy

MoMA’s Party in the Garden, Memorial Day fundraiser weekend lasted for four days. The Tuesday night event, featured performances from DJ Cassidy and Estelle.

The Brit singer arrived wearing an Alexander McQueen printed dress from the Spring 2009 collection, with a black leather belt, black peep-toes and a bronze cuff.

If you’re thinking it’s the same Alexander McQueen dress Camilla Belle wore to the Push LA premiere, I would say you’re half right, because it’s the same print, but not the same dress.

Camilla’s was more fitted, whereas Estelle’s is longer and drapes at the front.

Estelle performed a 45-minute set, wearing a modified Rachel Roy Spring 2009 dress.  The major modifications were the tribal print bodice, and the nude blouson sleeves.

This softer, delectable look, is a huge contrast to her edgier red carpet look, and it’s a look I much prefer.

She kicked off her set with her single “No Substitute for Love”, and then worked her way through some classic soul, and a cover of Coldplay’s “God Put a Smile Upon Your Face.”

She finished her performance the only way she could, with her smash hit “American Boy.”

US Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Issue Event

Woot woot. Taraji P. Henson makes a long awaited return to the red carpet, and she proves by wearing this vintage Emanuel Ungaro fringed flapper style dress, with Azzedine Alaia boots, that her awards season run was not fluke.

After wearing a gorgeous 3.1 Phillip Lim dress the other night, this white Camilla and Marc dress for some reason reminds me of loo roll.

Not a flattering look, and so disappointing as I was considering putting her on a pedestal.

LOVE Kelly Osbourne in this black and white striped dress. The volume on the skirt of her bandage dress is blowing me away.

Her look is complete with Gina heels, and a Swarovski clutch.

Garcelle Beauvais was wearing a gorgeous strapless jersey LWD from the BCBG Max Azria asymmetric dress collection, but I’m captivated by that stunning statement necklace.

Jordana Brewster is wearing a really nice draped Christian Dior dress, but there’s TOO much black going on for a party titled ‘Hot Hollywood Style‘.

The same kinda applies to Fergie, although her look has a very interesting and distinctive edge to it, with the leather vest, over a fringed DSquared dress.

My main criticism is the hair.

Fergie, please decide what colour you wish your hair to be. At present I see black, I see brown, and a touch of honey colour highlights. I admired the changed at first, but now it’s looking like a home colour kit gone wrong.

Estelle, we’re used to seeing you in edgy design no one else would dare wear, but you’re just not the maxi dress wearing kind.

Her dress Layla, is wore with a Juliette Jake clutch.

Like Halle Berry’s striped maxi earlier this week, Shanna Moakler’s white

Foley+Corinna maxi dress, with multi-coloured stripes screams summer vacation.

I do though admire her creativity, in trying to match her eye make-up, to the colours on her dress. It looks like she gave up after trying 3 shades, thankfully.

Eliza Dushku opted for black and white stripes in this Moschino dress.

The party’s hot, she so Hollywood, so it was only natural Paris Hilton arrived at this event.

She snugged up to her beau wearing a Junko Shimada two-tone mini dress, with a Chanel purse, and Trib Two’s. Her jewels are outstanding.

Martina McBride wears a black strapless Miu Miu LBD, with her wonderfully voluminous dark locks and a Yigal Azrouel statement necklace.

Meagan Good wore a barely there LBD, under a black leather jacket. Her yellow strappy sandals was the only dash of colour she added to her look.

With regards to what Annie Wersching is wearing, some might say this is more negligee than red carpet ready, I would just be thankful it’s not black.

19.02.09 Worst Dressed

2009 Brit Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
Colour-blocking is very on trend, but Katie White from the Ting Tings green, plus neon pink and yellow LF Markey Spring 2009 ensemble just hurts my eyes.

Worst Modification Award
Estelle shortened this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 dress from the runway, and for me in the process ruined it.

The hem looks really awkward and messy.

From the look on her face, she not to happy with this look either.

Worst Hair & Make-Up
Alesha Dixon is such a pretty girl, but her blunt bangs cover up too much of her face. I also did not like her make-up, especially her bubblegum pink lipstick, which matched her heels.

Worst Black Award
Even with that unnecessary added piece of material, Natalie Imbruglia’s strapless black dress is very bland.

Worst Shoes Award
Why wear such a pretty dress, if you are just going to wear a pair of busted shoes?

Alexa Chung’s gorgeous harlequin dress is vintage, but she could have worn some Louboutin’s or Choo’s to match the vibrant nature of her sparkling dress.

Victoria Beckham Matchy Matchy Award
Amanda Holden is wearing waaayyyy to much purple for my liking.

A gold strappy sandal to compliment her embellished halter, would have broken up the matchy matchy look.

Worst Floral Award
Someone should remind Denise Lewis that this is the Brit Awards.

She is not going for afternoon tea with her granny.

Most Disappointing Award
Fearne Cotton is one to rely on during these types of events, but she really lets me down in this blazer and mini skirt combo. Not red carpet ready at all.

2009 Grammy Awards Show

It is me or is the Grammy show looking better than the Grammy red carpet?

Gwyneth Paltrow was a surprise at this show, but then considering her husband was up for many awards with his group Coldplay, her appearance then no longer becomes a surprise.

The gorgeous actress surprised me by wearing a stunning gold and silver sequined Versace Spring 2009 strapless mini. Unfortunately she didn’t dare to wear without tights.

I can’t remember her ever wearing Versace.

Her look was complete with strappy sandals and Chopard jewels.

My BFF Queen Latifah wore a custom cobalt blue Gustavo Cadile strapless cocktail dress.

I love the way the fringed detail moves as she walks in her stunning gown, and the ruched bodice give her a gorgeous shape.

STUNNING. Whitney Houston blows me away here.

The legendary singer wore a blue and beige ombre strapless Zuhair Murad Resort 2009 gown. The gown had a floral sequin detail at the waist, and sexy side slit.

I feel another girl crush coming on.

Jennifer Hudson continued to look amazing on stage when she performed You Pulled Me Through, which earned her a standing ovation.

Carrie Underwood performed in a gold sequined pant suit, with a nude sheer overlay.

Not sure what the black harness is for.

Following her performance Carrie changed into another Zuhair Murad dress. This one was a green silk chiffon baby doll bubble dress with floral bodice, and beaded cap sleeves.

Katy Perry performs in a fruit of the loon mini dress.

Another gorgeous pink dress from Katy Perry. This time she wore a pale pink silk chiffon v-front ruffled mini Jenny Packham Spring 2009 dress with crystal waist detail and matching pink heels,

Estelle continued her space age look wearing another Bernard Chandran dress in the press room.
