Social Events Of The Weekend

Blade at Miami Beach’s Fontainebleau Hotel

Kate Hudson looked bootylicious in a figure-hugging white Herve Leger bandage dress whilst having a night out with boyfriend A-Rod this weekend.

The dress showed-off her gorgeous curves, but I’m still not loving her brunette locks.

Self Magazine July 2009 L.A. Issue Party, LA

Speaking of fabulous bodies. Every time I see AnnaLynne McCord she makes me feel guilty for not working out more because she has an amazing toned body.

The actress opted for a dark chocolate brown dress with a black shoulder strap and strappy sandals.

I’m loving her silver dangling earrings.

“Whatever Works” Paris Premiere

Evan Rachel Wood was suitably chic for the Paris premiere of her new film “Whatever Works”, looking effortlessly gorgeous wearing a stunning black D&G dress with open shoulders and plunging neckline.

Her look was paired with matching black Louboutin peep-toes and a glittering House of Lavande diamante bracelet .

Rachel’s smoky eye make-up adds to the sultry feel to her look. The only thing I don’t like is her tattoo on her ankle.

“The Narrows” New York Premiere

I’m not really crazy about Sophia Bush’s look. I would have expected a lot more from her for her premiere.

The beautiful brunette wore a silver round neck tulip dress with a black patent YSL Fall 2008 belt and YSL Trib Two heels.

Runway To “Whatever Works” New York Screening – Evan Rachel Wood In Jean Paul Gaultier

Kylie Minogue and Dita von Teese are both big fans of Jean Paul Gaultier’s work.

Kylie will often wear his custom designs on stage, whereas Dita will wear his pieces on the red carpet.

Evan Rachel Wood has managed to shake off the Dita comparisons in recent months, and I don’t get any Dita vibes from this look.

The actress wore a sophisticated Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 criss cross halter black dress to the New York screening of “Whatever Works” last night.

The belted dress has a fishnet overlay, which you can see via the cut out panel on her thigh.

Her look was completed with her red hair tied back, with a few pieces framing her face, black Louboutin peep-toes, and a dark grey sparkling VBH Venus Clutch.

She opted for rosy shimmering pink lips, when she could have easily opted for red.

I love this look.  She looks very mature, sophisticated and elegant.

11th Annual Young Hollywood Awards

Evan Rachel Wood was looking fierce on the red carpet, wearing a sexy black and silver Gucci Fall 2009 dress, with black feathered detail on the shoulders, a large waist belt, and black Brian Atwood “Maniac” platforms.

I love how this girl switches things up for different events. She’s never predictable. When you expect black she will give you a cream gown like at the Oscars.

Her look was complete with the red carpet favourite, the Jimmy Choo Kase Oval Clutch.

I’m really enjoying Katharine McPhee’s recent run on the red carpet. She always looks so elegant and beautiful. This event was no exception.

She arrived wearing a poppy red Reem Acra Resort 2009 silk satin strapless cocktail dress, with bow detail on the bodice.

Her look was complete with a pair of  Tory Burch’s Francesca Sexy gladiator sandals.

This is the second time in a row that LaLa Vazquez has worn Alexander Wang on the red carpet.

This time she wears an Alexander Wang denim and velvet corset top, with a stripey blazer, and black pants.

I like the blazer and the Wang top, but not together. I also think her pants would have been better had they been more fitted. At present they look ill-fitting, especially around the ankles.

Rumer Willis showed off her long legs, wearing a mini black dress with a ruffle skirt. The dress had an interesting print, and her grey clutch complements the dress well.

I like this look for Rumer, but I’m still rooting for her to dye her hair back to black.

Cutie Jamie Chung, arrived wearing a strapless Mara Hoffman dress, with an interesting print. Her look was completed a gorgeous studded clutch, and a Giuseppe Zanotti cut-out booties.

AnnaLynne McCord’s hair was curly and wild the last time she walked the red carpet. This time she opts for sleek marcel waves, with her black strapless mini Alice + Olivia Madison dress.

The pop of red on the lips adds a very small touch of colour, to her all black look.

Bar Refaeli always looks so beautiful.

On this occasion she glows in a one shoulder Notte by Marchesa hot pink mini dress, with large flower detail on the bodice.

Not sure about those purple peep-toes though.

Eva Marcille wore an ivory halter neck Eva Culture gown, with layer upon layer of ruffles.

It’s simple, and yet totally gorgeous.

Evan Rachel Wood At The "Whatever Works" Premiere & After Party


For the Tribeca Film Festival, Evan Rachel Wood walked the red carpet for her new film Whatever Works, which is directed by Woody Allen.

She contrasted her slicked-back red hair with this black Dolce & Gabbana strapless gown, which was decorated with lace details around the bodice and trim.

The actress looked glamorous, and I loved the voluminous puffy skirt, and a sweet-heart neckline.


For the movies after party Evan changed into a black and white sheath dress, from the L’Wren Scott Fall 2009 collection.

The dress had tuxedo shirt bibbed front, and white cuffs, with black contrast buttons.

Both looks are very sophisticated, but the Dolce & Gabbana dress wins me over.

23.02.09 Worst Dressed

2009 Oscars – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed
I am so glad Jessica Biel made this so easy for me.

The white Prada duchesse satin gown, is so incredibly plain and boring – just like Biel.

That draped material didn’t work for me. In some pictures it ballooned out, and just looked ridiculous.

The complete the disaster, Jessica forgot to wash out the mounds of grease in her hair.

Most Predictable Award
No bling, but we get yet ANOTHER mermaid gown from Beyonce Knowles.

Yes it flatters her shape, but could she please play another record.

To be honest I liked this gown for about 10secs, before the camera panned gown. The hem is horrendous.

UPDATE:
You will/should not be surprised that his monstrosity is House of Dereon Couture. Only Tina Knowles could create this hot mess.

Wash Out Award
As much as I love this Elie Saab Spring 2009 Couture gown, the colour is so wrong for the beautifully pale Evan Rachel Wood.

The nude colour totally drains her, and washes her out. I would have loved to have seen her in a striking colour.

Her jewels are by Neil Lane.

Worst Red Award
I love Amy Adams, and I tried to love her Carolina Herrera red strapless gown, but I couldn’t.

Firstly I really dislike the black piping on the bodice, and I really dislike her green, blue and cherry red Fred Leighton necklace with the gown.

I’m 16, Going On 30 Award
Seriously this is TOO much dress for Miley Cyrus.

When will her stylist and her mother get a look right for this girl? Why do they insist on aging her so dramatically.

The Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 Couture gown itself is gorgeous. I love tiered scallop skirt, and embellished belt, but it’s a gown for a woman, not a child.

Most Boring Award
A lot of you said I was too kind to Kate Winslet by putting her on the Best Dressed List at the BAFTA Awards. Looking back I agree.

I did say I would put her on the Worst Dressed list if she opted for another dark colour, so here she is.

The dark colour is not the only problem, I really don’t like that embroidered mesh part on her grey YSL Atelier one-shouldered gown. It serves no purpose, in fact it ruins the dress for me.

Her look is completed with Chopard jewelry.

I Know You Like It, But I Hate It Award
I am sure a lot of you will hate me for adding Amanda Seyfried and her Valentino Spring 2009 Couture gown on the Worst Dressed list.

This gown was better strapless, as it was presented on the runway. The straps ruin the look for me.

Worst Hair & Make-up Award
I don’t even know the colour of Alicia Keys’ dress, because I am so horrified by the brown wig and shocking make-up.

Why, oh why?

Update: Armani Prive gown. Still so upset about the make-up and hair.

De Ju Vu Award
Don’t you feel like you have seen this Dolce & Gabbana mermaid gown a million times before?

We saw something similar on January Jones and Olga Kurylenko, that by now I am so over this look.

De Ju Vu Mark 2 Award
As much as I am a huge fan of Roland Mouret, this modified gown is not to dissimilar to the red Dior dress with the open neckline, which Heidi Klum wore to the Oscars last year.

What Black Again? Award
Not surprised at all that Angelina Jolie is wearing black. Can you believe this is by Elie Saab?

I am so used to seeing his dresses so colourful and embellished. I have never seen his designs look so plain.

She tried to punch it up a little with green Lorraine Schwartz earrings, but that’s not nearly enough.
