Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2010


The Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2010 collection didn’t fail to bring us a stunning presentation of mini dresses.

The highlight for me were the denim pieces, as this is a material Azria hasn’t used before. He also used light jersey fabrics to create the iconic bandage dress, which only clung closer to the models slender figures.

To keep us interested the dresses were tie-dyed, patchworked and crochet. One white dress was slashed immediately reminding me of a similar dress Alexander Wang presented last season.

Models almost took a tumble, but thankfully they didn’t hit the deck.

See Amanda Bynes, a colour other than black works.

The actress had a rare moment of not wearing black to walk the red carpet wearing a blush bandage dress, which she paired with a BCBG Max Azria blazer and Herve Leger Black Snake-Embossed leather sandals.

Mischa Barton was the only one to opt for one of the more interesting runway Herve Leger dresses from the Fall 2009 collection.

Her dress was paired with chained heels which Amanda Bynes also wore and a silver cuff.

Hilary Duff bandage dress hugs her in all the right places.

The LDB is paired with nude pumps and a Goyard clutch.

Social Events Of The Week

GLSEN’s 2009 LA Respect Awards kick-off party, LA

We have yet another smile from Ginnifer Goodwin.  Maybe it’s because she knows she looks so cute wearing a Brian Reyes Dolman polo blouse dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

I love the Clark Kent hairstyle.

The Boathouse, London

UK singer Little Boots wore a strapless Basso & Brooke Resort 2010 dress when she performed at the Boathouse in London this week.

This gorgeously colourful dress with fold and structured details, has a black background unlike many of the other pieces from this collection which have a white background giving the pieces a cloudy rainbow sky feel to them.

Planet Hollywood, New York

Alexis Bledel made an appearance at Planet Hollywood in New York to promote her new movie “Post Grad”.

The actress opted for a Kimberly Ovitz Jacob jersey dress, which unfortunately revealed her pale bra.

Wear a black bra under a black dress. It’s simple mathematics.

H&M ankle boots were added to give her look a bit of an edge.

Post Grad Screening And Party, LA

She faired much better at the LA screening wearing a navy Sachin and Babi for Ankasa Resort 2010 draped dress embellished with black sequins.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

We don’t see Renee Zellweger for months and now she’s popping up everywhere promoting her latest movie.

The actress arrive at Letterman wearing an electric blue strapless dress with silver Louboutin heels.

I’ll take a wild guess that it’s by Carolina Herrera.

I wanted to love this because of the vibrant colour, but those fold details on the skirt really don’t work for me, especially on the long shot.

Her frizzy hair doesn’t appeal either.

Charlotte Ronson and JCPenney Celebrate “I Heart Ronson” Line, New York

Mischa Barton continues to party despite her recent troubles.

The actress – haven’t called her that in a long while – wore a black tank top with a colourful floral Topshop skirt.

To add more colour into the mix she paired her look with a hot pink twisted rope necklace her favourite Alexander McQueen pink strapped open-toe booties.

Hilary Duff adds a tribal print scarf to add interest to her t-shirt and leggings look.

Her look was complete with an Alexander McQueen Faithfull leather glove clutch.

When I see Sophia Bush at this event, all I can think of is ‘Why was she not invited to the InStyle Magazine’s Summer Soiree?’

That stylish event was right up her street.

The look is very shopping at The Grove.  For once Sophia is not doing it for me.

On The “Gossip Girl” Set With Hilary Duff Wearing Marchesa

Hilary Duff was spotted on the “Gossip Girl” set yesterday looking really good wearing Christian Louboutin ‘Bianca’ pumps with a Marchesa Spring 2009 gold dress draped with a black chiffon overlay.

You may remember that this dress has been worn on the red carpet by Miley Cyrus and Georgina Chapman.

Hilary Duff’s “Gossip Girl” character is called Olivia Burke. Olivia is a movie star who enrolls at NYU in search of a traditional college experience. She ends up rooming with Vanessa (Jessica Szohr).

It seems like even though Duff’s character is a movie star, they’ve given her a very laid back casual look including Siwy distressed jeans and a Kain Label pocket tee.

Duff has been seen on set carrying a Valentino bag, but in these pictures she’s carrying a Givenchy chain belt maxi nightingale bag which has just shot to no.1 on my wish list.

Duff will debut in the fourth episode of season 3, slated to air October 5 in the US.

Leighton Meester, Taylor Momsen, Jessica Szohr and Blake Lively’s looks from yesterday will follow.

On The Gossip Girl Set With Blake Lively & Hilary Duff Carrying Valentino Bags

Valentino appears to be the bag of choice for the stars on “Gossip Girl”.

Last season Michelle Trachtenberg aka Georgina Sparks was seen carrying a Valentino Histoire Patent Tote and Blake Lively carried a Valentino petale bag.

In season 3 we will see Blake Lively and newest member of the cast Hilary Duff carrying Valentino bags.

Blake was seen on set this week carrying a sequin and pearl Valentino ‘Spotlight’ tote on-set whilst wearing a Herve Leger grey skirt, grey top, black cardigan and ruby beads.

Hilary carried a tan Valentino Petale hobo, which is quite popular with stars like Jennifer Lopez and Heidi Montag.

How do you feel about Hilary joining the cast?

My sister is not happy. She says that if Mischa Barton or Lindsay Lohan join the cast she will officially boycott the show.

Blake was also spotted leaving her trailer on the set of “Gossip Girl” juggling her dog a drink, and a pink doggy bed whilst wearing a Topshop kaftan liberty print dress, ballet flats and an Alexander Wang Max fanny pack.

Bike In Style Challenge

Marion Cotillard opted for a very sophisticated classic look for this event. She looked every inch hte A List movie star that she is, wearing a dove grey Christian Dior skirt suit.

The cap sleeved jacket was belted to clinch in her waist, and give her a stunning silhouette.

Her lady-like look was contrasted with a pair of Christian Dior Spring 2009 tribal heels, with a African fertility goddess figurine as the heel.

Hilary Duff also opted for a sophisticated lady-like look with edgy heels, wearing a gingham belted dress, with Manolo Blahnik ‘Vella’ peep-toe ankle booties.

Unfortunately for her she’s so overshadowed by Marion’s magnifique chic.

Love her bright red clutch.

Herve Leger By Max Azria Collection Launch Party

When I saw this event, I hoped we’d get to seem more of the Herve Leger By Max Azria Fall 2009 collection, which was first worn by Miley Cyrus.

Unfortunately, we got nothing original.

Hilary Duff paired her lime green bandage dress with Sergio Rossi python cut-out sandals.

She looks good, but not so crazy about her hair.

Sophia Bush, a long time friend of designer Max Azria, opted for a daring silver plunging dress, with grey suede Trib Two’s.

Leona Lewis wears tights with just about everything, so I wasn’t surprised she paired her Herve Leger Melanie bandage dress which has a beaded shoulder strap, with my least favourite clothing item.

She looks beautifully voluptuous in her dress, which was worn with Trib Two’s.

Double blow.

Melissa George opted for a haltered Herve Leger black dress.

Taraji P. Henson may have just gone and undone all her hard work during awards season. I mean what the…

So wrong on many levels.

Jordana Brewster wore a grey Herver Leger Zebra dress, with a gold trimmed clutch and nude heels.

Krysten Ritter totally opted out of wearing a Herve Leger dress. Instead she wore a red one-shouldered dress, which had a ruffled detail going down one-side, with matching heels.
