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.

BVLGARI “Between Eternity And History” Opening Exhibition

BVLGARI invited guest to the opening of the exhibition “Between Eternity and History: 1884-2009″ to mark their 125th anniversary, in Rome’s Palazzo delle Esposizioni Palace.

Showing off a new ‘do, Ginnifer Goodwin wore a black Azzaro Fall 2009 dress, with a tiered skirt, and an embellished tie detail, and sleeves.

Her look was paired with black satin Brian Atwood slingbacks, with a diamante buckle, plus BVLGARI diamond earrings and rings.

The actress looks glamourous and gorgeous in her flirty LDB.

Selma Blair surely wanted to stand out in this bright pink, Versace Spring 2009 one-shouldered mini, which was covered in embroidered pink and silver rhinestones.

Loving the new bob – it must be the day to unveil new ‘do’s – and her matching heels complete the look, plus she dazzled with a BVLGARI bracelet and diamond earrings.

I adore Jessica Alba’s maroon dress, with structured embellished shoulders.

Her taupe heels were an interesting choice, her BVLGARI jewels sparkled, but the make-up… well it’s not quite the right shade unfortunately, which is a shame because everything else was working.

I know Chloe Sevigny is a style maven to many of you, and 90% of the time her look in on point, but I’m not crazy about this look at all.

The taupe one-shouldered dress is fine, so are the matching pumps, but the high messy bun is off putting, plus her gold necklace feels heavy with the dress she is wearing.

This exhibition will be open to the public from May 22 to September, 13 2009.

Ginnifer Goodwin For W Magazine June 2009

Ginnifer Goodwin graces the cover of the June 2009 edition of W magazine, in a racy editorial aptly titled “Not So Goodwin”.

The editorial sees Ginnifer in various states of undress, entertaining some cute boys, who appear to entertain themselves when she’s not looking.

Ginnifer has an amazing body, which she is only too proud to show off in this editorial.

It’s not something I would have thought she could pull off, but she looks good.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On being in a relationship: “I’m a better person in a relationship, and I’m a happier person. I need to come home at the end of the day and have it not be about me and my freaking hair and makeup. And I think my work is more inspired when home is safe and sound and solid because what I do for a living is so bananas and so insecure.”

On actors giving romance advice: “I don’t know why anyone would want to ask an actor for dating advice. We are not the poster children for healthy relationships.”

On becoming a vegan: “I’m so anti body-image issues. It was always part of my identity that I would show off by eating everything. But I’ve made a decision that I could not continue to support these industries.”

On her new home:
“I’m in a relationship with this house right now. I’m in love with it. I plan to be here a long time. I assume it’s where I’ll get married-I’ll only marry a fella who loves the house like I do-and have my first child.”

You can read the whole interview here.

Who Wore Camilla & Marc Better? Ginnifer Goodwin or Kim Kardashian


I adore this Camilla & Marc Alabama mini dress which actress Ginnifer Goodwin wore back in early January, to the LA premiere of Big Love’s 3rd season.

This is such a cute spring-time cream lace dress, with asymmetrical tiered detail, it really could have been worn with flesh coloured tights, and a cute strappy sandal.

Kim Kardashian arrived at Tori Spelling’s release party for her new book Mommywood at The Thompson Hotel wearing the same dress.

Despite loving Ginnifer’s up do with this dress, I much prefer how Kim wore this dress, with the matchy matchy Louboutin peep-toes, so she wins for me.


This dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $700, or the international site for £500/€613.60.

06.04.09 In Her Closet

In Ginnifer Goodwin’s Closet – Matthew Williamson For H&M

While we all not so patiently wait for the Matthew Williamson for H&M collection to hit stores on April 23, Ginnifer Goodwin is the first person to get her hands on the collection.

She wore the multi-coloured sequined dress (£150/€199/$249), when she hosted an Evening at Prive in Las Vegas this weekend.

This dress was on my wish list, but I like the model’s version better with the dash of blue. I always get a bit frustrated when I see something in a magazine, and the print it not the same in store.

In addition to the womenswear, Matthew Williamson will launch his first ever menswear line, and another line of womenswear on May 14.

Social Events Of The Week

The Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style Plaque Unveiling, LA

Anne Hathaway and fashion designer Valentino Garavani seem inseparable that the moment. They attended the plaque unveiling presentation, of Valentino being inducted into the Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style.

Valentino is the 13th fashion leader to receive the honour, joining Manolo Blahnik, Tom Ford and Giorgio Armani.

Anna is radiant. She looks so fresh-faced, I feel like she is about to shoot a cosmetic campaign.

She wore a Valentino Pre-Fall 2009 belted champagne and pink floral satin dress, with a symbolic Valentino red coat, and nude peep-toe Louboutin’s.

Breath-taking.

Parsons Fashion Benefit, New York

Speaking of radiant and fresh faced. Leighton Meester is back on her A game wearing this white Calvin Klein Spring 2009 dress.

Her lilac Balenciaga peep-toes booties are more appeasing to the eye, unlike those Reebok sneakers we saw recently.

Race To Witch Mountain Madrid Premiere

Carla Gugino wore a gorgeous tomato red satin Georges Chakra Couture Fall 2008 dress.

From the front you think it’s just another plain dress, but the back is were the magic happens.

The actress completes her look with Christian Louboutin Bow T Dorcet heels. Taylor Swift wore these in a previous post. Could this be the new ‘it’ shoe?

Origins Kicks-Off The Return To Origins Recycling Program, LA

Jessica Stroup really embodies the Spring time feeling I have been having, wearing an eggshell moire embroidered Brian Reyes Spring 2009 skirt, with a nude low v drop top by the same designer.

Her look was complete with nude Jimmy Choo Corsica strappy sandals.

2009 Pleasure Summit, Turkey

Eva Mendes wore a Moschino Cheap and Chic royal blue silk sleeveless pleated v-neck dress, with ivory heels to complete her look.

La Perla Shopping Party, LA

Kristen Bell wears a incredibly exquisite La Perla ivory embroidered mini dress. A French Connection box clutch, and strappy sandals complete the look.

Starlight Children’s Foundation’s Annual “A Stellar” Gala, LA

Teri Hatcher looks beyond fabulous in this lavender one-shouldered Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2009 satin dress.

When she’s hot, she’s hot.

“Hair” Broadway Revival Opening Night, New York

Ginnifer Goodwin looks cute in a black Calvin Klein split sleeved dress, with a black belt. Her clutch and shoes are by Stella McCartney, her smile is still absent.

Social Events Of The Weekend

20th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, New York

Vanessa Williams continues to astound me on the red carpet.

Some would say a woman of her age shouldn’t wear this Matthew Williamson silk asymmetric drape dress, but I say boo to that, because she is wearing it a lot better than girls half her age could.

Fierce, and she knows it. Love it, love her.

OMG, I didn’t know Ana Ortiz was expecting.

My isn’t she glowing in this white off-the-shoulder dress?

Tyra Banks’ Georges Chakra couture tuxedo shows off a much slender frame.

Portia de Rossi and Ellen Degeneres pose with their awards in the press room.

Ellen in a navy blue chic suit with comfortable sneakers, and Portia wore a strapless black Bottega Veneta Pre-Fall 2009 dress with Stella McCartney mesh basket sandals.

23rd Genesis Awards, LA

Ginnifer Goodwin looks so dreamy in her nude sequined April, May dress with a pretty, ruched organza detail cascading down the front.

Accessories were kept to a minimum, with a stunning pair of Daniel Swarovski statement earrings, a gold shimmering clutch and pointy heels.

She looks so elegant, and so feminine, but like you, I wish she crack a smile once in a while.

Best look of this event.

Emily Deschanel sprung into spring wearing a fresh, citrus orange satin shift dress.

Stunning gold accessories, and black pumps complete her look.

Tiffany Fallon wore a black top under her plunging Alexander McQueen cap sleeve jumpsuit.

Maggie Q red carpet appearance are now few and far between, but she still knows how to make an impact. The actress wore a dangerously deep plunging orange jersey BCBG dress, which nears her belly button.

2009 Empire Awards, London

Gemma Arterton had one good week, then reverted back to what we have come to expect from her – a complete and utter mess.

I will only assume she didn’t look in the mirror once she put on this off-the-shoulder Halston Spring 2009 dress, because it’s unflattering, and totally washes her out.

OK, ankle boots are the new red carpet trend, but they’re so wrong with this dress.

Olga Kurylenko who won Best Newcomer at this awards do, wore a very uninspiring all black ensemble.

“Monsters vs. Aliens” South Korea Premiere

Han Ye-Seul stepped in for Reese Witherspoon, wearing a nude Fendi Spring 2009 dress. It’s so pretty, and looks so delicate against her pale skin.

The floral appliqué’s add some texture to the dress, which she wears with nude strappy sandals.

L’Etoile nightclub, Paris

Dita von Teese enjoys a night out wearing a emerald green satin Malandrino Fall 2008 dress, with matching heels.

The plunge-neck dress has a tulip skirt, and a black belt with a green marble buckle. Her look is complete with trademark red lips and nails, plus a Christian Louboutin shoe clash clutch.

Social Events Of The Week

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

The black YSL Trib Twos were grinding on my last nerve, but I am happier that celebs are at least wearing the must have shoe in another colour now.

Ginnifer Goodwin wore the dove grey YSL Trib Two slingbacks, with her YSL LBD.

Her dress was in desperate need for some kind of magic, so she wore stunning Roxanne Assounlin for Brian Reyes jewelry to add some pizazz to her look.

Jergens and Skin Cancer Foundation’s Glow In The Dark Event, LA

Rachel Bilson looked super stylish in a navy and white 3.1 Phillip Lim dress.

I love the origami dress on the dress, it very much reminds me of Kristen Stewart’s Paule Ka dress.

Rachel completed her look with Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. I really ? this look.

Boston Common Magazine Cover, Boston

Eliza Dushku celebrated her cover for Boston Common magazine at a party thrown in her honour. The actress wore a silver sequined a-line Moschino Cheap & Chic Spring 2008 dress with a knotted neckline. She completed her look with ballet pumps.

I much prefer this dress belted, to how it was presented on the runway.

“Fast & Furious” Bochum Premiere

Jordana Brewster wore her purple Reem Acra Fall 2008 dress with a black sash, with Christian Louboutin Paquita gladiators.

It appears Jordana and her co-star colour coordinated their red carpet looks.

Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana’s looks both incorporated black and purple.

Michelle’s long black maxi dress was worn with a Catherine Malandrino deep purple embossed leather cropped motorcycle jacket. For once she looks really good, but….

…for some reason the actress was dying to show off her ripped jeans under her dress

*shakes head*

“In-I” Press Conference, Seoul

Juliette Binoche black taffeta dress is stunning, but for some reason she makes hard work of it.

Her hair has that ‘just got out of bed’ look, and her bra strap is peeking out over her dress.

A strapless bra, would have added more elegance to her look.

First Light Movie Awards 2009

Instead of her own expensive Twenty8Twelve collection, Sienna Miller looked to the high street for this event, wearing £95 All Saints Ditzy print dress.

Her look was complete with a Chanel cuff, a black jacket and brown slouchy boots.

I’m desperately waiting for Sienna’s style to evolve.

“Duplicity” New York Premiere

Julia Roberts teased us with a peek of a colour other than black, wearing a floral Christian Dior dress. The only problem is that she kept her black Akris coat on the whole time.

Her look was complete with a pair of Lanvin black satin pumps.

*eye-roll*
