2009 Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style Awards Honoring Princess Grace Kelly Of Monaco

Camilla Belle looked stunning and elegant wearing a Marchesa Spring 2010 magnificent dress.

This kind of dress could’ve easily gone so wrong, but the embroidered white tulle cocktail dress with a feather hem and sleeves makes her look like an elegant swan rather than Big Bird.

Black strappy heels prevent this look from being too costumey.

This is second time in a row I haven’t been jumping up and down with exciting with what Demi Moore has worn on the red carpet.

On this occasion her asymmetrical Zac Posen Spring 2010 black dress looks better on the runway, to her halter neck version.

Angie Harmon pairs grey thigh-high Rodate Fall 2009 boots with a maroon wide neck Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 dress.

I like the pieces separately, but together it’s a bit of a disaster.

If this is Angie’s attempt at being edgy, I would say stick to being slightly predictable.

Gabrielle Union was my second favourite on this red carpet.

The beautiful actress wore an ivory plunging dress, with draped details on the hips.

Normally she faded into the background, but on this occasion she stands out.

Lisa Edelstein looked effortless chic wearing a black strapless Paule Ka gown adorned with a nude bow.

Debra Messing opted for a pile it high hair ‘do when she walked the red carpet wearing a black long sleeved dress with embellished cuffs.

For a Style event, I’m very much underwhelmed by most on this red carpet.

Design Care Benefit for HollyRod Foundation

Many of you have campaigned long and hard for this moment, and you finally have your wish.  The gorgeous Georgina Chapman modifying her runway designs.

Your complaints were that as a designer she should be setting herself apart from clients like Thandie Newton, Jennifer Morrison and Miley Cyrus, despite the fact that she usually beat them in Who Wore It Better? polls.

I adore this scarlet satin Marchesa Fall 2009 strapless dress with satin bow on the hip.  The dress sparkles – as she does – with embroidered detail on the bow and the bodice.

The colour is so rich and luxurious which compliments her sun-kissed skin.

Matching peep-toes complete this exquisite look.  I can’t gush about how much I love this look enough.

We normally have to wait until Thursday to get BDOTW contenders, but we have 3 already.

Ciara walked the red carpet looking chic with her razor sharp ‘do wearing a Rock & Republic Spring 2009 leather mini-dress with an oversized bow neckline.

She wore her sexy dress with a pair of Rock & Republic’s “Athena” sandals and pink lips.

Lisa Rinna went back into the archives to find this stunning strapless Roberto Cavalli Fall 2005 gold lame dress.

You may remember Kate Hudson wore this dress back in 2005 to “The Skeleton Key” London Premiere.

Terry Ellis, Cindy Herron, Dawn Robinson and Maxine Jones aka En Vogue were a quartet of beautiful ladies all wearing Marchesa and Notte by Marchesa.

I love the baby blue on Cindy, she always stands out.

Maxine was the only one to wear a modified dress.  She opted for a shorter sassy dress over a flowing gown like her band mates.

Holly Robinson Peete opted for a strapless coral Marchesa Resort 2009 silk chiffon pleated dress with embroidered bodice and waist.

The colour is divine against her glowing skin.

I would have loved to have seen Gabrielle Union wearing one of the sassy and more colourful cocktail dresses from Marchesa’s stunning collections, but she opted for a navy strapless gown with a embellished detail on the bodice.

Garcelle Beauvais opted for a simple black gown brought to life with gold embroidery detail through-out the dress.  She compliments her dress with a gold statement necklace which she often wears to add a bit of pizazz to her look.

Laila Ali is a knock out wearing a white Black Halo one shoulder dress with black strappy sandals.

Social Events Of The Week

Cartier / Art of Elysium LOVE Bracelet Event, New York

Eva Mendes combines timeless chic with modern elegance.

She looked sophisticated wearing a Michael Kors folded shift dress, with a gorgeous metallic fabric.

Her dress was paired with ultra-high black Casadei platform heels and a selection of the sponsors jewelery.

Children Uniting Nations 4th Annual National Conference Gala Dinner, Washington

Gabrielle Union wore a silk chiffon strapless BCBG raspberry gown with a bejeweled detail on the empire waist.

The colour is stunning against her skin. She looks as beautiful as ever.

Launch of the Exclusive Deluxe Version of The E.N.D, New York

Fergie wore a taupe Max Azria sateen origami strapless dress, with black Walter Steiger heels.

What I love here is her corset-like belt, which give the dress a edgier look.

Fergie is never boring on the red carpet, and I love her for that.

Camilla And Marc Dinner

WOOOHoooo, we have a smile.

Many of you have noted that Ginnifer Goodwin never smiles. We get the odd smirk from time to time, but this is a full on grin.

The host of this dinner, wore a white one-shouldered white mini with black open-toe Mechante of London ankle boots.

It’s a shame she didn’t have enough time to press her dress though.

I’ve been a great admirer of Lynn Collins style since she burst onto the scene. I love her Camilla & Marc LBD, with the lace insert and tiered skirt, but the hair and make-up really let her down.

Also I’m tiring of booties with everything.

Catherine Malandrino Boutique Launch At Harrods, London

Catherine Malandrino was in London to launch her new boutique within Harrods departments store. The designer epitomizes everyday chic wearing a gorgeous green pleated empire waist dress from her own collection.

This dress is captivating with its ruffled sleeves. It’s the perfect day to night dress.

Elizabeth Hurley opted for a Catherine Malandrino black strapless dress with multi coloured embroidered rosettes at bust and multicolored banding at the waist.

I wouldn’t have had Liz down as a Malandrino girl as she is so high maintenance, but she looks great in this dress.

Maxim’s 10th Annual Hot 100 Celebration

Let’s see how many Trib Two’s, and Herve Leger dresses we can count at this event.

Heidi Montag, or should I say Heidi Pratt, wore platinum strappy heels, and a matching Nancy Gonzalez clutch, with her predictable Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 bandage dress.

I’m not particularly crazy about this look, and her necklace is so unnecessary. She should have saved it for a better outfit.

Herve Leger Count: 1
Trib Two Count: 0

Kim Kardashian opted for a very tight white H&M dress, from the Divided Exclusive Summer 2009 Collection, with 80s inspired shoulder pads.

This look is too severe for my liking, as she has one of those council estate face-lifts, were her hair is pulled back so tight her face looks stretched.

Jil Sander black pumps, and a Christian Louboutin clutch complete the look.

I’m really not liking Audrina Patridge’s lighter hair. She was so much prettier when her hair was darker.

She wore a navy mini dress under a black Kris Van Assche tuxedo jacket, whilst wearing her very favourite Balmain Crystal embellished studded sandals, and carrying her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch.

The only surprise with Amanda Bynes’ look, is that she’s not wearing a Herve Leger dress, but I guess when you know Heidi Montage has been invited, a Herve Leger dress is automatically off the table, as Heidi will definitely wear one.

Everything is standard Bynes’. Shoes, hair, vacant expression.

Herve Leger Count: 1
Trib Two Count: 1

Arielle Kebbel is wearing black peep-toes with her cute strapless BCBG Max Azria Spring 2009 dress *shudders*

God those heels are killing me, such a bad choice.

She should have considered the split in her dress, before striking that pose.

Ciara sure knows how to rock cornrows. The dress is event appropriate, but I would have expected her to go more high fashion, and stand out from this crowd considering her many good choices lately.

Herve Leger Count: 1
Trib Two Count: 2

Dania Ramirez channeled her inner Carrie Bradshaw wearing a pair of Manolo Blahnik Something blue satin pumps, with her marble print strapless Farah Angsana dress.

Gabrielle Union & Jamie Gunns arrived wearing the same Herve Leger dress.

That’s gotta be embarrassing, but that will teach them both to be so unimaginative.

Herve Leger Count: 3
Trib Two Count: 2

Vanessa Minnillo quietly walked the red carpet with Nick Lachey, wearing a Laila Azhar pleated strapless dress, with lust worthy Fendi Boudoir sandals.

Whenever I see Taryn Manning, I always think this is one of the lost Lohan sisters.

This platinum dress is so ill-fitting on her.

135th Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby is all about the hats, and their were many beautiful creations on display this weekend.

Kim Kardashian’s grey hat, with black organza and feathered detailing, was teamed with a sexy white sheath dress, hugging her in all the right places, plus black accessories, including gloves, a clutch, and patent pointy heels.

I love this look, and how she still manages to look sexy, but not tacky.

LeAnn Rimes wore a very wide brimmed ivory hat, with a red scarf tied to it, which complimented her cute bow tie floral dress.

This is my favourite look, as it very much embodies the spirit of this event.

Eva Pigford, Marcille whatever she calls herself these days, also opted for black and white.

I would have loved this look if it hadn’t been for those black and white t-bar heels, as they cheapen her look.

All black? To the Kentucky Derby?

How totally unimaginative, boring, and such a safe option for Gabrielle Union.

I love Brooke Shields’ ivory jacquard dress. It’s cute with via the bow, and the length, and it’s sexy with the v-neck plunge, but she throws it all away with that blue spaceship-like hat. The net is the killer.

When it comes to Bethenny Frankel’s look, I don’t know what’s worse. The Benny Hill hat, or the pink asymmetrical ruffled jumpsuit.

Who Wore Reem Acra Better? Lisa Rinna or Gabrielle Union


This Reem Acra gown is from the Resort 2009 collection. It’s not the same dress which Lisa Edelstein wore to the SAG Awards this weekend, although they look very similar.

Lisa Rinna arrived at the 2008 Emmy Awards back in September wearing a white Reem Acra Resort 2009 asymmetrical gown, with a jeweled detail on the shoulder. For me this was one of her best ever looks.

Actress Gabrielle Union recently wore the same dress in black when she arrived to host the BET Honors event in Washington.

Both wore silver jewels to compliment their gown, but I love this gown in white, so Lisa wins this for me.
