Keep A Child Alive’s 6th Annual Black Ball

Kerry Washington’s Marchesa Spring 2010 gown with a flared hem and a white corsage detail is gorgeous, but I’m not quite getting the feeling that Kerry is owning it.

She looks a little lost in this gown, which is very unlike her.

It’s like she’s not feeling it at all.

Her look is paired with a Marchesa crocodile clutch which is also from the Spring 2010 collection.

Iman continues wow me time after time and this is no exception.

The supermodel wore a black sequined Thakoon Fall 2009 one-shouldered belted dress which is too spectacular for words.

I adore the draping and the tulle bow detail which sits on her shoulder.

Her sleek bob and smoky make-up complete this perfect look.

As beautiful as Halle Berry is this slashed black Kaufman Franco sequin dress, it looks too tight around her bust which really puts me off this look.

Paula Patton adds a touch of colour via her long sleeved fitted dress which she pairs with a deep red clutch and gladiator sandals.

Not something one would expect at a ball, but I do love this dress.

My biggest problem with Estelle’s look is that she looks so uncomfortable.

Between the tie and the shirt dress button up to the top, she looks so restricted.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Kristen Bell In Marchesa, Veronica Webb In Christian Siriano & Iman In Donna Karan

Congratulations for picking Kristen Bell in Marchesa as your winner for Best Dressed this week, because I couldn’t separate Veronica Webb and Iman.

Had you guys picked one of them I would have picked the other, but as Kristen was your winner I was stuck.

Veronica pulled off a very stunning Christian Siriano gown – one of my favourites from New York Fashion Week – whilst Iman turned back the clock – or just reinvented it – wearing a sparkling deep purple sequined Donna Karan plunging gown.

Looking at Iman I think we all worked that bit harder in the gym this week.

She really does get better with age. Cheesy line, but oh so true in this case.

Thanks for your votes.

2009 American Ballet Theatre Fall Gala

I LOVED this asymmetrical Christian Siriano Spring 2010 marine blue gown with bubble skirt when I saw it presented on the runway during New York Fashion Week, and I prayed that the wearer would do it justice.

Veronica Webb my goosebumps say ‘yes you did’.

The model paired her dress with Martin Katz jewels and a large silver clutch.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Emmy Rossum attended the Marchesa Spring 2010 presentation during New York Fashion Week, but she opted for a stunning ivory one-shouldered gown from the Resort 2010 collection which had a stunning embroidered bodice.

She looks every inch the snow white princess, I bet she feels like in this stunning gown.

JoAnna Garcia wore a scarlet red Alberta Ferretti strapless gown which looked amazing against her bronze skin-tone.

The shoes I’m not so crazy about, and the look feels like it’s lacking something, like a clutch or some jewels.

Iman is unbelievable wearing a deep purple sequined Donna Karan plunging dress.

Unbelievably drop-dead-gorgeous.  I’m almost lost for words.

I’ve had this blog for over 2 years now, and she has never faltered.   If anything she just gets better and better.

*bows*

All the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey but that doesn’t mean Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis shouldn’t stick to red carpet rule number 2. “No Coats On The Red Carpet”.

Now I will constantly wonder about Natalie’s sketched Chanel dress, and who designed Mila’s LBD under her white coat.

White Ribbon Alliance Dinner

I’ve been waiting for what feels like forever for someone to wear something from the Prada Fall 2009 collection, since Eva Mendes wore a look from the collection back in March.

Jessica Alba has fulfilled that wish by wearing a red velvet floral dress, but what the lord gives with one hand he takes away with the other and those thick black opaques kinda dull the excitement.

Nicole Kidman has been M.I.A. on the red carpet for a long while.

She returned in her favourite designer wearing a black fitted L’Wren Scott lacquered tweed dress with red peep-toes.

At this point I’m just grateful that the dress is not white.

Remember that rather crazy phase?

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection keeps going strong.

This time Naomi Watts wears a black cropped jacket from said collection with a white shirt and black pants.

Georgina Chapman has been accused by many of you for not shaking things up.

Well this is the 3rd time she has worn something not directly off her runway, which will hopefully please you non-believers.

I think her dress was modified from the purple strapless Marchesa Resort 2010 dress, as it has a very similar shape.

The pops of fuschia pink are cute and sassy.

Stunning as always.

I’ve run out of nice things to say about her.

CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi hosted the event looking gorgeous wearing a Giambattista Valli Fall 2009 peacock print coat/dress.

Why celebrities haven’t worn anything from this stunning collection still baffles me.

Uber models Naomi Campbell and Iman struck a pose together.

Naomi wore an angelic white Azzedine Alaïa dress and Azzedine Alaia python & patent strappy heels, whilst Iman opted for more colour wearing a mustard pencil dress which shows that she’s still got it.

Social Events Of The Week

Hopings Got Talent Fundraising Event, London

Lily Allen looked outstanding wearing a prom-esqe red Prada dress, teamed with taupe Fendi bow-front peep-toes, and a blue quilted Chanel bag. One of many that she owns.

Her make-up was flawless, I love the a pop red on her lips, and I adore her neat black bob.

Surprisingly well put together.

Sienna Miller tried her hand at a glam rock chick look by teaming a studded Temperley London cropped jacket, a studded vest and a studded Temperley London belt with faded black skinny jeans and studded ankle boots.

I glad Sienna has managed wear a casual look that doesn’t include a hint of boho, but she has over done things with the studded details. At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if she was wearing studded pants.

Her look was completed with a Romanek crocodile clutch.

“Public Enemies” Chicago Premiere

French actress Marion Cotillard wore a very summery lilac strapless Christian Dior dress which she paired with silver open-toe heels and a double buckle belt.

A curly opdo and a brown clutch completed this stunning look.

Sam Fine’s “The Basics of Beauty” DVD Launch Party, New York

Without a single hair out of place Iman stepped a little out of her comfort-zone of glamorous gowns and tea dresses, to wear this black shimmering Derek Lam Spring 2009 jumpsuit with harem pants.

Divine as always.

2009 Los Angeles Film Festival’s Opening Night Premiere Of “Paper Man”

Christina Ricci kept her look simple wearing a purple dress with a black elasticated waist.

White pointy pumps and a quilted Chanel bag completed the look, but Christina opted out of wearing a bra.

Grand Opening Of The New BOA Steakhouse In West Hollywood, LA

Looking fabulous is really easy for Terri Seymour as the former model has a stunning figure.

Whether she’s wearing a designer gown or this strapless floral Topshop dress, it’s almost impossible for her to have an off day.

She completed her look with YSL Trib Two slingbacks.

8th Annual Four Seasons Of Hope Gala, New York

I feels like something is missing from Estelle’s Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2009 black jumpsuit.

She has a pop of colour via the purple pumps, but I’m still missing something.

Barnes & Noble Book Signing, New York

Lauren Conrad opts for a cute casual style for her New York book signing at Barnes & Noble.

The star wore a very similar look to her last book signing.  Her she wore a loose fitting black and white top with black shorts and black Christian Louboutin pumps.

Wavy hair, a single bracelet and a megawatt smile completed the look.
