Fashion Group International’s 26th Annual Night Of Stars

It’s not often I’m wowed by Mary J Blige, but this is very much a wow moment.

The singer looked stunning wearing a black Gucci Spring 2010 halter gown with jeweled leather harness neckline detail.

Truly outstanding.

Potato sack is the first thing that springs to mind when I see Eva Mendes wearing her modified slouchy grey Calvin Klein Spring 2010 dress.

I personally preferred the dress on the runway, but it’s just not a red carpet look.

And as if the look wasn’t bad enough she adds shoe-boots to the mix.

Iman wows again for the 3rd time in a row wearing a dusty rose Michael Kors sparkler.

I say it every time, but its amazing how ridiculously gorgeous this woman looks every time she hits the red carpet.

Emmy Rossum’s blew me away looking spectacular wearing a draped golden Donna Karan gown which make her look like a Grecian goddess.

Evan Rachel Wood smoldered in a burgundy Gucci gown with antique gold fringe detail on on sleeve.

She looked poised and elegant with her hair swept back into an slick updo, pairing the gown with a gold python clutch with bamboo tassel detail to match her dress.

Gucci ‘s Creative Director Frida Giannini received a “Design Star Honoree” award at this event.

Wearing a self-designed Gucci mini dress paired with a Gucci clutch and Gucci Fall 2009 heels, she posed with James Franco and Mary J Blige who both wore Gucci.

A very demure Gwen Stefani wore a LBD  with a rise and fall hem, paired with YSL black patent Trib Two’s and her L.A.M.B clutch.

I was trying to work out what was so different about Gwen’s look, then it hit me.

She’s not wearing her trademark red lipstick, instead she opted for a nude shade.

Although I like this look, she has totally thrown me by being so unpredictable.

Dita von Teese was typically beautiful sticking to her trademark red lip.

The Burlesque beauty wore a black vintage gown, with a head piece by Stephen Jones.

Runway To Salma Hayek’s Italian Wedding


Salma Hayek and her husband, French billionaire François-Henri Pinault, had their second wedding this weekend.

People.com reported that Salma wore a Balenciaga wedding gown by Nicholas Ghesquiere for the actual ceremony, as she exchanged vows with Pinault, at the Venice opera house La Fenice. The bride wore her hair in a bun with a long veil, held a bouquet of orchids and stephanotis with crystals.

Her guests included Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Ashley Judd, Antonio Banderas and wife Melanie Griffith, Woody Harrelson, Edward Norton Ziyi Zhang, Philippe Starck, Stella McCartney, Lily Cole, Anna Wintour and former French President Jacques Chirac.were looking fabulous too.


Salma’s BFF Penelope Cruz arrived with her gorgeous beau Javier Bardem.

Penelope wore a Caribbean blue Gucci Spring 2009 one-sleeved gown, with gold strappy sandals, and a matching clutch.

I love Penelope here, she looks so relaxed and fresh faced.


Charlize Theron arrived wearing a Christian Dior Spring 2009 slate grey halter-neck dress, but by the time she left the dress was considerably shorter.

Either she did a quick change inside the venue, or possibly many people stepped on her gown forcing her to shorten it. Either way she looks fabulous, even with the mask.


Frida Giannini appears to have taken some tips from Donatella Versace, by modifying her Gucci Fall 2009 mini dress, into a gown for this special occasion.

Her Trib Two lookie-likie platform heels were also from her Gucci Fall 2009 collection.



Anna Wintour arrived wearing the same black and white Chanel Spring 2009 Couture dress, she’d worn earlier this year to the Extreme Beauty In Vogue Party.

I love that she is not afraid to wear the same thing twice, but I would have preferred to have seen her in something different.

Frida Giannini’s Gucci Dinner

Frida Giannini, the Creative Director at Gucci, had this dinner party thrown in her honour by Vogue UK.

She was impeccably dressed in her own Fall 2009 collection, which included a stunning gun metal grey chain-mail tunic, and thigh high black leather boots, which as must as we’ll try, we won’t escape this Fall.

Emilia Fox was one of my favourites at this event, as she just oozes grace, and she has that classic glamour about her, that makes her one to watch on the red carpet.

Looking every inch the English rose, she arrived in a satin teal gown, which was exquisite on her.

Erin O’Connor is so beautiful and statuesque. Everything she wears looks instantly regal, even this stunning multi-coloured blue and green chiffon Gucci Spring 2009 gown.

This may have been a dinner to toast Frida, but Jasmine Guinness wore a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 gold jacket, over her sexy black gown.

I love the jacket, as it added an edge to her look, without making her look ridiculous.

VV Brown opted out of the floor-length gowns. Instead singer wore a mini T-shirt Ashish Fall 2009 dress, which was covered in sequined multi-coloured geometric prints.

Her look was completed with her trademark quiff, gladiator heels, and a pair of geeky Urkel specs.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley gives an ethereal glow wearing a silvery grey asymmetrical Grecian Gucci gown.

Lisa B was dressed in a knock-out deep red satin Gucci gown. The draping flattered Lisa’s figure, and the only accessory this beauty needed was a clutch.

Peaches Geldof tries to look grown up in her berry Gucci gown, but I’m sorry her tattoos really ruin this look for me. Plus she is strangely hunched over, in what I believe is her signature pose.

I will give her a 5 out 10 for her effort.

It doesn’t matter what her sister Pixie Geldof wears, she will always looks like she just got out of bed after a heavy night on the sauce.

Just when you think Claudia Schiffer couldn’t get more boring on the red carpet.
