Social Events Of The Week

Operation Smile Presents the 2009 Smile Event, New York

Ciara wore an ensemble from the Halston Fall 2009 collection, consisting of grey genie pants, a silk tuxedo jacket, and a python scarf.

The scarf is the very strong stand-out piece of this look, which I never expected to see on the red carpet, but Ciara makes it work.

Her look was completed with a pair of fierce multi-strappy Emilio Pucci Fall 2009 heels.

InStyle Hair Issue Launch Party, New York

Ali Larter is very pretty in pink wearing a Notte by Marchesa strapless silk ruffle dress, with black strappy sandals.

The dress is youthful, cute, and sassy, but I would’ve loved to have seen someone like Selena Gomez, or Miley Cyrus wear this dress.

Lisa Edelstein also wore a strapless Notte by Marchesa dress.

Her metallic animal print dress, had a black chiffon overlay, and was accented with a gold woven tie at her waist.

She completed her look with taupe Fendi bow-front peep-toes.

Socialite Olivia Palermo, adds some oomph to her patterned organza Notte by Marchesa tank dress with a black sequined Diane von Furstenberg jacket, and T-bar shoes.

“Management” Screening, New York

*sighs & gives up*

Jennifer Aniston walked the red carpet at this event which was co-hosted by Tommy Hilfiger wearing a grey dress, grey tights, and grey booties.

OK it’s not black, but it might as well be. The dress is actually quite sexy, but the all over grey just makes this looks soooooo boring.

“The Brothers Bloom” Screening, New York

Rachel Weisz went for a low key, yet still very feminine look, wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2009 printed dress, which was ruched down the front

She paired her dress with a gold box clutch, and black Jimmy Choo strappy sandals.

11th Annual “Tribute To The Human Spirit” Awards Gala, LA

Mark & Spencer’s campaign girl Myleene Klass, wore an electric blue Preen Line Tricks cotton drill dress, which hugged every inch of her curves, which she’s so rightfully proud of.

“Love & Dancing” LA Premiere

Amy Smart is wearing a geometric print Halston Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress. This dress may have cost hundreds of dollars, but unfortunately she make is look very bargain basement.

2009 Rainforest Alliance Gala, New York

Gisele Bundchen was a vision of pure gorgeousness, wearing a gunmetal grey backless Versace gown, which plunged so wickedly.

The orange earrings really pop.

Models @ The 2009 Costume Institute Gala

After Gwyneth Paltrow wore the gold version of this Versace Spring 2009 dress, plus it’s appeared on many magazine covers, Gisele Bündchen gave us something a little different with a navy blue spaghetti strapped version of this mini dress.

Not a jaw-dropping moment like last year, but you can always rely on her to look fabulous.

Daria Werbowy walked the runway the Balmain Fall 2009 show so she would have pre-selection what she wanted to wear to the event weeks ago. She opted for this black sequined plunging dress from the same collection, with black booties.

Anja Rubik also walked for Balmain, and it looks like she had her eye on this strapless silver piece, with a black asymmetrical hem from the Fall 2009 collection.

Still sporting her Auburn locks, Coco Rocha wore a gold asymmetrical Isaac Mizrahi Fall 2009 gown.

Donatella Versace had a busy night dressing yet another star in her Atelier Versace Spring 2009 collection. Claudia Schiffer opted for a black strapless gown, with many sheer panels.

We have been crying out for a new hairstyle for weeks, and Claudia gave us bangs to keep us quite.

Miranda Kerr wore a very revealing fringed Jil Sander Spring 2009 dress.

Iman supreme elegance as always in Donna Karan.

Karen Elson’s Gothic look is perfect for this Chanel Fall 2009 off the shoulder gown, with a white pleated collar.

The look of the Rodarte Fall 2009 collection included thigh high boots, but Jessica Stam opted for slingbacks with her Rodarte one-shouldered mini dress.

Despite the vivid yellow, I’m missing the wow factor I usually get from Amber Valletta at these types of events.

Helena Christensen’s pink Zac Posen custom Vogue gown is cute, but I would’ve preferred to see it on someone like Chanel Iman.

Hilary Rhoda wore a Thakoon Fall 2009 mini asymmetrical mini dress, with a pouffy piece on her shoulder. I much preferred this dress in black, as it was presented on the runway, but Hilary does look great in it.

As I said above I would have preferred that Helena and Chanel Iman has swapped dresses. Last night Chanel wore a pink Zac Posen Spring 2009 animal print gown.

Shalom Harlow is quite a mysterious character, and she isn’t giving much away in this vintage Bob Mackie black puffy coat dress.

Sessilee Lopez sparkled in a Zac Posen gown, as did Arlenis Sosa in Alberta Ferretti.

Isabeli Fontana pulled on a chartreuse mini for Calvin Klein, with matching pumps.

Alex Wek stood out in purple Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2009 mini dress, but she is so natural beautiful make-up weakens her look.

Narciso Rodriguez dressed Lily Donaldson in a black rise & fall gown.

Rachel Roy- in her own design – dressed both Lakshmi Menon and Joy Bryant. As much as I love them both Joy totally rocks my world in this dress.

Eva Herzigova wore a strapless nude Dolce & Gabbana dress, with Giuseppe Zanotti Special Edition crystal strap sandals.

Lara Stone rocks in her silver Alexander Wang dress.

V59 Magazine’s 6 Supermodel Cover Swimsuit Issue

Kate Moss in a hairy Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2009 jacket, is one of 6 supermodels to grace the cover of V Magazine’s first-ever swimsuit issue, which was shot by Mario Testino.

Inside the issue you will also find other supers including Carmen Kass, Isabeli Fontana, Natalia Vodianova and some hot well oiled guys to drool over in various beach and pool side pics, that will have you longing for your summer vacations.

Claudia Schiffer in handcuffs, strikes a one-legged pose wearing a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 swimsuit, and YSL cage booties.

Matthew Williamson for H&M campaign girl Daria Werbowy, is an absolute knock out, wearing a Versace Spring 2009 cut-out Julie Verhoeven print swimsuit.

Wearing only bikini bottoms, Eva Herzigova’s look is inspired by Marilyn Monroe. Even in the simplest, plainest swimsuit Gisele Bündchen still stands out.

Naomi Campbell takes on a Playboy look, wearing a one-piece strapless swimsuit, gold cuffs and bunny ears. I swear I have seen Naomi pictures before. This is an old picture, right?

I will be standing at my newsagents on May, 6 with Kate and Daria’s covers in my hand, deciding which to buy. You?

More From The Front Row

Rodarte

Kristen Dunst was front row at the Rodarte Fall 2009 show looking fantastic wearing a Rodarte Fall 2008 multi-coloured knit dress.

I always love what the Mulleavy sisters produce, I just wish we would see more of their edgy designs on the red carpet.

Calvin Klein

I seriously did not recognise Kate Beckinsale until I saw the caption under her name.

Looking at her hair, I will guess these are clip on bangs. I hope she ditches them before the Oscars.

I appreciate that Kate has tried to shake up her look a bit in this leather dress, but it just feels a bit false.

Eva Mendes wears head-to-toe black. What more can I say?

Erin Wasson + RVCA

Leighton Meester wore a Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2009 ensemble consisting of a gold sequinned top, and a teal snake print skirt, with navy tights and bronze heels.

Like Kate, Leighton as opted for bangs, and like Kate, I don’t think it quite works.

3.1 Phillip Lim

I expected to see more of Becki Newton at fashion week. She arrived at Phillip Lim’s show wearing a taupe sequinned dress, from the designers Spring 2009 collection.

Badgley Mischka

Kellie Pickler continues to shine in the front row. Her she wears a stunning ombre Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with a black sash at the waist.

I have been praising Kellie a lot, but she really should have packed another pair of shoes, she has been wearing those Trib Two’s all week. Even I brought 10 pairs.

Jessica Stroup wore a white strapless Badgley Mischka Spring 2009 collection, with silver slingbacks.

Her dress was presented as a gown, but I equally love this shorten version, as it’s young, fun and suits her personality.

Kim Kardashian wore an black asymmetrical dress, with black Louboutin’s. Another very sophisticated look for Kim.

Anna Sui

Jessica Szhor wore a cute lace dress with black booties.

She as naturally -enviable- thick hair, so I am perplexed about her need for extensions.

Taylor Momsen just tries too hard. What is so wrong with being 15 years old? Why is she trying to act way older than her young years?

I feel like getting a pack of baby wipes, and taking all that eye-liner off her face.

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld Party

Supermodels Natalia Vodianova and Gisele Bundchen struck a pose together.

With her long leather gloves Natalia wore a crystal embellished Emporio Armani Spring 2009 blazer.

Gisele was conservative by comparison, wearing an all black ensemble.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld attended her brother’s event wearing a cute navy and gold polka dotted Christian Dior Spring 2009 dress with a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 purse.

Who Wore Versace Better? Gisele Bundchen or Mar Saura

Kimora Lee Simmons once made a statement that no one should wear something from the runway, which has been worn by supermodel Carmen Kass (pictured below), because you will just look stupid/second best.

For me this statement also applies to Gisele Bundchen, but Spanish actress Mar Saura, wore the same pink satin plunging neck Versace Fall 2008 gown to the Goya Awards, which Giselse had worn to the Costume Institute Gala last May.

My chin hit my keyboard when I first saw Gisele in this dress, and she also made my Top 10 dresses of 2008, so it’s very easy to say that she wins this for me.
