Saks Fifth Avenue Cocktail Reception For Vionnet – Ginnifer Goodwin In Vionnet

Last night Saks Fifth Avenue held a cocktail reception for the French fashion house Vionnet who’ve had an amazing revival over the past few months.

The event was attended by Anna Wintour, many of New York’s socialites and actress Ginnifer Goodwin.

I’m blown away by Ginnifer.

She looks outstanding wearing at black velvet dress from Vionnet’s Fall 2010 collection.

The velvet makes it luxurious, whilst the cut-outs bring out her sexy side.

Goodwin’s look is completed with a pair of thigh-high ‘faux’ leather boots. If you look closely you can see that they have a small peep-toe.

The first real wow moment of the week, so Ginnifer bags herself a spot on the BDOTW poll.

Runway To Red Carpet – Ginnifer Goodwin In Valentino, Chanel & Moschino

Ginnifer Goodwin attended the 24th Genesis Awards this weekend looking stunning in red Valentino.

Her lace Valentino Pre-Fall 2010 mini dress gathers on the hip, has an open back and a chiffon ruffled neckline.

The dress appears slightly shorter on Ginnifer, but I think this is the perfect length for her.

She paired her look with taupe pumps and a red clutch.

Yet another BDOTW contender.

At the Chanel And Charles Finch Host A Pre-Oscar Dinner a few weeks ago, Ginnifer opted for a Chanel Spring 2010 dress with a draped skirt.

On Ginnifer we finally get to see the bodice of this look which has a scalloped edge detail and a mesh overaly.

On this occasion the skirt appears to be longer, but it could just be that the model has endlessly long legs.

She paired her look with Stella McCartney heels.

Ginnifer also opted for a black look at the “Diamond Information Center Luncheon” a few weeks ago.

The actress wore a black satin Moschino cropped jumpsuit with a ruffled neckline yet again.

Ginnifer paired her black jumper with a cream faux ostrich Tunney ‘Polly’ clutch and Aldo black peep-toes.

All caught up on GG.

Runway To “The Stylist Project” Exhibition – Ginnifer Goodwin In Christian Dior

Ginnifer Goodwin gives us a rare smile at “The Stylist Project” Exhibition in LA last night.

What’s not rare is a cute look from the “Big Love” actress.

The sun it out here in London, which puts me in the mood for a cute summery floaty dress with bare legs and strappy sandals.

I love the floral prints mixed with the purple lace on her Christian Dior Spring 2010 dress.

With her cute pixie cut she paired her look with a bejeweled Dior clutch and black ankle strap heels.

BDOTW suddenly just became very busy.

Runway To “Calvin Klein’s LA Arts Month And ALAC” Event – Ginnifer Goodwin in Calvin Klein

Actress Ginnifer Goodwin wore a Calvin Klein Spring 2010 ruched nude mini dress to the “Calvin Klein’s LA Arts Month And ALAC” Event in LA.

At first glance, I quite liked this. It’s soft and feminine, and the sheer puff shoulders are gorgeous.

If anyone knows how to do chic simplicity, it’s Ginnifer.

I also really like the long necklace that Ginnifer has worn with the dress, as it stops the look from becoming too bland.

But the more I look at it, the more I think something is missing.

My main issue with this outfit is that she has chosen to match her shoes and clutch bag to her dress. To me it seems to be crying out for some colour.

How do you feel about this look?

18.01.10 Best Dressed

2010 Golden Globes Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award

I was a bit underwhelmed by this red carpet until I saw Diane Kruger.

Ever since I attended the Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Couture show in January last year I’ve been praying to see this gown on the red carpet.

Diane more than does this stunning pink ombre gown justice. The colour really pops on the soggy red carpet on a cold and rainy night in LA.

I love the sleek old Hollywood hairstyle. She was really out to impress.

Her white Raven Kauffman Couture clutch matched the pretty white bow on the side of her dress.

Most Predictable Award

There would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Marion Cotillard would wear Christian Dior.

Style.com even predicted that exact dress she would wear.

Being the face of ‘Lady Dior’ helps, plus when we see her in Dior we always get spectacular results.

Her petrol green satin asymmetrical Spring 2010 dress has a thigh-high split with a black négligée peeping through.

Jimmy Choo ‘Drake’ sandals and Chopard jewels complete her look.

Biggest Shock Award

Courteney Cox walked the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 collection.

Like most pieces from VB’s collection the dress was well structured and had a ‘top to hem’ zipper along the back.

I liked the jeweled detail on the empire waist, and the chic updo Courteney sported.

Normally I don’t care much for Courteney on the red carpet, but she really surprised me by how great she looked.

She carried a black Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch.

Her husband actor David Arquette dutifully kept her dry from the pouring rain.

Best Couture Award

This is definitely one of those ‘better on screen look’s.  Unfortunately the picture isn’t doing Drew Barrymore any favours.

Her Atelier Versace Fall 2009 one shoulder champagne gown was stunning.

The nude corset was covered by a nude crystallized overlay, with two clusters of glass fringes on the shoulder and the hip.

Her hair was swept back as not to interfere with the details, as the actress wore Lorraine Schwartz jewels to complete her look.

It’s A Grower Award

I’ve been going back and forth with Julianne Moore.

I was just about to put her on the Worst Dressed list, when I decided that her Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 dress wasn’t as bad as I first thought.  Mostly because she looks so elegant.

The grey colour initially put me off this silk bustier gown, but I really like the pleated lace detailed neckline and her green Bvlgari earrings were magnificent.

Black suede Balenciaga stingray sandals complete the look.

Beautiful, Even When Slightly Wet Award

Chloe Sevigny would’ve been the most worried about getting her rose Valentino sleeveless gown wet as it would’ve deflated those beautiful ruffles.

But she was lucky to have a someone to help shield her dress from the rain.

Buccellati jewels complete the look.

Va Va Voom ‘Jessica Rabbit’ Award

Christina Hendricks has the most amazing body, which she always dresses so well.

She leaves me breathless in this stunning Christian Siriano Spring 2010 gown which was custom-made to hug those delicious curves.

She carried a Christian Loubuotin ‘Kephron’ silver clutch and wore Loree Rodkin jewels.Read More…

2010 People’s Choice Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
I’m not going to waste anytime harping on about how much I dislike Jessica Alba, because when it comes to the red carpet for me it’s all about the dress.

And WOW what a dress.

The Antonio Berardi Spring 2010 collection was dubbed as the Megan Fox collection due to all the overtly sexy mini dresses on display, but it was a yummy mummy who did it justice.

Jessica gave Fergie and Cameron Diaz a run for their money in the most enviable legs department in this silver mini dress with a peplum at the waist.

She could have killed this look with a boring pair of heels, but I’m in total lust with her Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 platforms.

Hair, make-up, dress, heels are all totally perfect.

10 out of 10.

Best Clutch Award
One of my Girl Crushes of 2009 Katie Cassidy started the year in perfect style walking the red carpet looking sensational wearing a Talbot Runhof Spring 2010 mini dress.

The short sleeve mother of pearl iridescent cocktail dress has a draped detail at waist and foiled accents at the hem and on one shoulder.

Sporting an Alexander Wang-style messy plait, she completed her look with a gorgeous Judith Leiber package clutch, and champagne satin heels.

“Don’t Stop Believing” Glee Award
Just when I’d given up all hope of ever seeing the Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 collection on the red carpet, Ginnifer Goodwin delighted me by wearing this cute sassy striped number from said collection.

The shoes are a bit plain, but I love the rosette detail on the shoulder and skirt.

I’m glad she didn’t over accesorize this look.

Back To Her Best Award
After a few question moments in both the wardrobe and make-up department, Taraji P. Henson is back to her best in this stunning lilac Alberta Ferretti Pre-Fall 2009 one-shoulder gown.

I love EVERYTHING about this look, especially the make-up which complement her gown.

Best Shoes Award
I’m normally all about the dresses, but I was drooling over Carrie Underwood’s Rock & Republic black strappy heels.

It looks like Carrie has finally said ‘goodbye’ to blingy dresses, because wore a stunning nude Christian Cota Spring 2010 dress with a black cage embroidered overlay.

She’s appears to have also said ‘goodbye’ to the 200lbs of weave she used to sport, opting for a this shorter sleek style which really suits her.

Johnathon Arndt jewels and a Lauren Merkin clutch complete this look.

Best Dressed Teen Award
Whilst I was less than enthused with Teen singer Demi Lovato, I was very impressed with Taylor Swift.

She also wore a Jenny Packham Resort 2010 dress, but she didn’t over accessorize her look.

Simple earrings, a matching bracelet and silver peep-toes complemented her strapless dress which was embellished with crystals.

I Hope She’s Warming Up Award
Diane Kruger looked beautiful on the red carpet wearing a white Herve Leger mini dress with Emilio Pucci cut-out studded sandals and a Bottega Veneta clutch, but I wasn’t blown away.

I’m hoping she’s warming up by starting off slow before she knocks us out at the bigger events.

Best Embellishments Award
Kate Walsh always looks like she’s having fun on the red carpet and this occasion is no different.

The actress looked gorg wearing a vintage 1960s Sarmi sequined dress from Decades Inc with Casadei heels.

Best Hair Award
Sandra Bullock looked amazing wearing a very distinctive gold brocade Vivienne Westwood bustier dress which she paired with nude Brian Atwood “Maniac” Pumps which is are celebs favourite heels.

I’m loving that mahogany colour of her poker straight hair.

Love The Dress Hate The Hair Award
I LOVED Hayley Williams dress.

At first I was convinced it was from Luella as it has the playful girly feel to it, but I unfortunately was wrong.

The voluminous skirt and pretty bows make this dress so beautiful and unique, but I just don’t love her hair.

If she’d had jet black hair, I would have loved the overall look more.

Classic Elegance Award
Whilst most opted for mini cocktail dresses Kathryn Morris glided down the red carpet wearing a Pamella Roland midnight blue satin asymmetrical off the shoulder gown which I simply adore.

I so prefer this colour to black.

Most Improved Award
I wouldn’t normally pay much attention to Niecy Nash on the red carpet but she blew me away in this stunning pink Tadashi Shoji jersey draped one shoulder gown.

One of her finest red carpet moments.

Best LBD Award
Alyson Hannigan’s LBD is super simple, but her Rene Caovilla satin rose accented heels make the overall look interesting plus she’s so damn gorgeous what’s not to love?

Baby Steps Award
I know some of you are still not ready believe Mariah Carey has turned a corner style-wise, but I think she continues to take baby steps in the right direction.

Her Ysa Makino white beaded halter gown with sweetheart neckline is another perfect choice for her.

On The Fence Award
Hmmm…I’m very much on the fence when it comes to Lisa Edelstein’s David Meister gown.

I love the embellished neckline, but I think there’s too much skirt in her skirt.

Prada Book Launch

Chloe Sevigny was definitely the poster girl for Miu Miu this weekend.

We saw her Spring 2010 look yesterday, this time she wore one of those plunging Miu Miu dress with a built in bra from the Fall 2009 collection.

As much as I like the dress, it’s not really working for me on Chloe.  The previous kooky look fitted her style more than this embellished dress.

Zoe Saldana opted for a colour-block dress from the same collection which doesn’t work either.

Surprisingly the only thing I like here are the berry tights.

I just wish she’d done more with her hair.  It looks very limp here.

Christina Ricci can do sassy and she can do demure.

The beautiful actress opted for a silver Prada dress with an embellished detail on the shoulder.

Ginnifer Goodwin is looks absolutely adorable in this ivory dress adorned with black rosette details.

Simple, but as always oh so chic.

We’re starting to notice a pattern forming with Jessica Alba.

Simple black – or in this case navy – dresses that neither excite, nor delight.

There is nothing wrong with going au natural, but there is a time and a place.

Note to Jessica Biel: the red carpet is not the place.

Please apply some make-up to warm you up a bit.

It bad enough that you are sucking the life out of this dress – which is your trademark – but please a bit of blusher next time.

I beg you.
