Who Wore Preen Better? Gwyneth Paltrow or Fergie

Gwyneth Paltrow wore this Preen Fall 2009 dress to the “Champions Of Hope Benefit” in New York in July.

I always love it when Gwyneth wears edgier pieces but I know some of you won’t agree!

I love the LA tan against this futuristic dress. I love the hair and the minimal make-up. And then I saw the boots *sigh*.

Fergie wore this dress at the beginning of December to a press conference with her band the Black Eye Peas in Mexico.

Again I’m not a fan of the shoes. They seem way too dainty for the dress.

It’s a close call and I think that both could have styled the dress the better but on the this occasion I’m going to go for Gwyneth.

A controversial decision I think? Who’s look do you prefer?

This dress is available to buy from Net-A-Porter.com.

Runway To “Dick Clark’s New Years Rockin’ Eve” – Fergie In Emilio Pucci

Fergie co-hosted “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” with Ryan Seacrest from Las Vegas.

Along with her host duties, Fergie also performed “Meet Me Halfway” with her band The Black Eyed Peas, which the crowd enjoyed as they danced into the New Year.

Whilst hosting Fergie looked stunning wearing blue sequined Emilio Pucci Resort 2010 long sleeved mini dress which showed off her enviable legs.

Of course she had to line the dress, but this takes nothing away from the look in fact I think it looks much better lined.

Her hair was trademark loose and wavy, with just her wedding ring accessorizing her look.

If you had said to me 2 years ago that I would have a girl crush on Fergie, I would have said you are crazy.

Definitely a BDOTW contender.

“Nine” New York Premiere

You may remember I wasn’t particularly crazy about the trains on all dresses in the Chanel Fall 2009 Couture collection, but on Kate Hudson I like it.

The reason is because we’re so used to seeing Kate wearing mini sequin dresses, that this look is really refreshing on her, and I LOVE the hair.

She swapped the beachy braid for a beautiful bob.

It was a family affair as Goldie Hawn was there to support her daughter Kate.

She also brought the wow factor to the red carpet wearing a Christian Dior Spring 2008 fringed gown.

The legendary actress wore her dress with a Dennis Basso’s white mink capelet.

Fergie can do no wrong at the moment.

Whether she’s wearing a Preen mini or this gorgeous Marchesa Resort 2010 Grecian gown she continues to blow me away.

She was one of my faves on this carpet.

I love how she paired her look with silver sparkling accessories.

Madonna and Lourdes Leon arrived in Dolce & Gabbana looks – of course.

Madonna wore a very typical Dolce & Gabbana corset dress with black elbow length gloves. (yawn)

Daughter Lourdes wore a lace Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010 skirt with a black bustier and pearl necklaces paired with Doc Martin boots and a leather jacket to toughen up her look.

Very early 80s Madonna.

We’ve been crying out for Marion Cotillard to grace the “Nine” red carpet with her presence and here she is.

Of course she didn’t let us down as she looked stunning wearing a strapless white column Dior gown, which she accessorised with long beaded Chopard necklaces and a black Judith Leiber clutch.

I would’ve preferred her without the necklaces, so we could marvel at the beautiful detail on her bodice.

Nicole Kidman’s Prada puff ball dress was accented with floral appliqués.

It wasn’t my favourite look on this red carpet, but much improved from the previous post.

Her strawberry blonde locks were swept to into a side bun with a piece framing her face.

Penelope Cruz looked gorgeous adding a burst of colour to this red carpet.

Her red satin Chanel Couture gown wrapped around her gorgeous body, with a draped detail across the front and a jeweled detail on the hip.

I’m loving the waves.

Like the rest of the cast Pen was glittering with Chopard jewels.

Naomi Watts was by far my favourite on this red carpet wearing a Marchesa sculpted sheath dress.

Factor in that divine raspberry, those beautiful fold details on her shoulders, that sexy peplum on her waist and the stunning silhouette and I’m in LOVE.

Head over heels.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen looked stylish on this star studded red carpet.

Mary-Kate opted for a black gown, but added a bit of colour with a harlequin jacket and a bright blue Maia N oversized clutch.

Ashley opted for all black barring her mustard Manolo Blahnik heels.

I loved her feathered coat which is very similar to the Topshop feather coat I’ve been cruising.

“Nine” LA Premiere

When I found out that some of the Best Dressed women in Hollywood would be appearing in a film together, I was sure we’d be drooling over their red carpet looks.

Unfortunately I haven’t been.

Penelope Cruz looked amazing at the London premiere, but this time she opted for a simple black L’Wren Scott Spring 2010 halter dress, with tights and black platform heels.

We know she can do much better than this.

Nicole Kidman walked the red carpet wearing a baby pink L’Wren Scott fitted dress.

The silhouette is very much what we’re used to seeing from Kidman and Scott’s designs, but on this occasion she added a lace capelet to try to make the look more interesting.

Kidman reverted back to kitten heels after teasing us with real heels at the London premiere.

Fergie was the sex kitten of the night wearing a overtly sexy Camilla and Marc “Caraletta” mini dress with t-bar heels.

Where is Marion Cotillard when you need some glamour?

This event was a big fail for me.

Grammy Nominations Concert Live!

Jennifer Nettles looked stunning as usual wearing a Yigal Azrouël Resort 2010 red one-sleeved silk shantung dress, which I think would’ve looked even better if it was sleeveless.

A contrasting belt and clutch, plus fuschia pink Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy peep-toes complete the look.

Keri Hilson continues her slide.

This houndstooth and striped Stella McCartney knit dress with lace panels shouldn’t have been considered as a red carpet dress.

She used to be so fierce on the red carpet.

Maybe she should do what Rihanna did and come to London and discover some new designers, because she’s clearly run out of ideas.

Fergie looks gorgeous in this one shoulder dress covered in ombre sequins by The Blonds, which has the same spike details as the dress Rihanna wore recently.

I love the dress, but those spikes are just plain scary.

When I go out I have enough to worry about when it comes to scuffing my shoes, I don’t want to have to worry about poking my eyes out as well.

Katy Perry wore an embroidered Ema Savahl dress with a sassy hemline.

By keeping her accessories to a minimum she didn’t overload her look.

Lilac Casadei heels completed the look.

Runway To LA Lakers Game – Fergie In Naeem Khan

I’m not sure why, but on Sunday night many celebrities dressed up for the game between the LA Lakers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder.

I will guess that they had taken in the game straight after the American Music Awards and didn’t feel the need to dress down.

Jay-Z looked very dapper in a brown velvet smoking jacket that many couldn’t pull off, but it was Fergie who would’ve had jaws dropping all over the Staples Center.

The Black Eyed Peas singer looks A-Mazing wearing a Naeem Khan Spring 2010 dress which was shorten from the runway.

As she shortened her rose gold cocktail dress, the tulip skirt then became a draped skirt showing off her best asset – her legs.

The dress is beautifully accented with a stunning jeweled necklace, which maybe overkill to you but the magpie in me is love.

This sparkler was paired with a bronze clutch and silver Louboutin pigalle’s to complete the look.

I’m not a fan of mixing metals, but I can’t deny how well this look works.

I have a serious girl crush on Fergie this week.

On Stage, Backstage and In The Press Room @ The AMAs

Jennifer Lopez didn’t walk the red carpet at the AMA’s, but she gave us many costume changes to make up for it.

One of her looks backstage was this white bod-con Gucci Spring 2010 dress with many cut-out details.

She paired her dress with the runway heels which also had cut-outs.

On stage she opted for a gold dress with had exaggerated hips as she performed in Christian Louboutin heels.

At some point the skirt was removed reveal a lace playsuit, as Lopez changed into comfortable sneakers.

In yet another change backstage Jennifer looked her best wearing an embroidered strapless Marchesa dress with a feathery skirt.

It was Lady GaGa and Rihanna who provided the biggest talking point, as they both performed in body suits.

GaGa’s nude body suit was accented with dinosaur bones, whilst RiRi opted for a white bandage style body suit with exaggerated spikey shoulders.

The comeback queens both took to the stage.

Whitney Houston performed wearing a one-sleeved Kaufman Franco white jersey column, whilst Janet Jackson opened the show with a medley of some of the biggest hits wearing a khaki ensemble which again features pointed shoulders.

In the press room Shakira wore the same Herve Leger metal pailette-embellished bandage dress we saw on Jennifer Lopez recently.

Fergie showed us that if the rumours are true about Josh Duhamel he needs his head tested, as she look super hot and sexy wearing a bustier dress with patterned tights and thigh-high boots.

Kate Hudson was one of the presenters on the night.

The actress wore a silver Gianni Versace vintage chain mail cocktail dress, which she paired with nude heels.
