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.

Who Wore BCBG Max Azria Better? Garcelle Beauvais, Arielle Kebbel or Elsa Pataky

Garcelle Beauvais arrived at US Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Issue Event back in April wearing a head-turning BCBG Max Azria asymmetrical dress with a blouson bodice and a front panel that created a fluid drape.

What really makes this look special is the stunning statement piece that adorns her neck.

Arielle Kebbel kept her dress simple at the “Maxim’s 10th Annual Hot 100 Celebration” in Santa Monica, by just wearing a black pumps and a black clutch.

At the Cannes Film Festival Elsa Pataky attended the “Akvinta Presents A Night of Hollywood Domino Party” wearing the same dress with a less impressive necklace plus a black clutch and bronze peep-toes.

Garcelle wins this by a landslide all thanks to that stunning necklace.

2009 Noche De Ninos Gala

Jennifer Lopez smouldered in a curve-enhancing Temperley London teal jersey gown.

The gown had a cowl back, blouson sleeves, a ruched detail on the skirt, and floor-sweeping fishtail train.

I love the whole look especially the hair, and the smoky eyes.

Garcelle Beauvais is gorgeous, we all know that, but this is the first time in a long time I have been really wowed by her.

She always looks nice, but here she renews that girl crush I had on her many years ago. She looks incredibly glamourous here.

This makes two purple dresses in one weekend for singer Jewel.

First was her Tadashi Shoji mini to the Rock to Erase MS event, but for this occasion she wore a David Meister violet long flowing one-shouldered gown, which she also performed in.

Monique Coleman shows off her legs, this ice blue satin dress.

Lynda Lopez, Jennifer’s younger sister, and mother also attended this event.

Lynda looked stunning in a beige tiered halter gown, but I didn’t like her black platform heels with this light coloured gown.

"Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past" LA Premiere

Camila Alves sold the limelight from her partner Matthew McConaughey, as they walked the red carpet last night for his movie premiere.

She wore a very daring plunging nude maxi dress, which was covered paillettes of seaweed green and burnt orange.

Jennifer Garner made a post-baby return to the red carpet last night.

She dazzled in a draped black Rachel Roy gown, which she wore with multiple gold bangle, a gold clutch and a jade necklace.

Simply gorgeous.

You would be forgiven for thinking Camille Guaty fell out of a pharmacy, but her mini dress is actually covered in many multi-coloured beads.

Très uncomfortable to sit in I would imagine.

I really like this. It’s something different and fun to see on the red carpet.

Garcelle Beauvais always looks amazing.

Her two-tone Black Halo dress, with matching red accessories, is so adorable. I want this look.

Emma Stone punched up her black strapless dress, with a cute Miu Miu satin bow necklace, and some sexy strappy sandals.
