“A Steady Rain” Broadway Opening Night, New York

What does Ellen Barkin, Nicole Kidman and Kyra Sedgwick have in common?

They all love wearing L’Wren Scott’s figure-hugging dresses.

Nicole Kidman has actually worn this black and white trimmed L’Wren Scott Headmistress dress.

Nicole opted for red peep-toes, but Ellen wore t-bar patent Christian Louboutin’s to complete her look.

Hair Magazine Awards, London

UK TV and Radio presenter Lauren Laverne wore a Jonathan Saunders Fall 2009 LBD, which had a wet-look bodice wrapped around stunning embellishments.

I love the her curly cropped bob and her flawless make-up.

Even though I personally don’t like tights, this head-to-toe look really works well for her.

The Richard Nicoll Fall 2009 runway fashion-forward piece has been soften to a pink & nude silk slip dress on Donna Air.

She added grey sandals and a silver statement necklace to complete her look.

Tamsin Egerton looks stunning wearing an Alexander Wang one-sleeved jersey ruched dress, which just goes to prove that Wang’s clothes are desired on both sides of the Atlantic.

It’s getting cooler temperature-wise in London, but thankfully Tamsin didn’t opt for tights.

She instead showed-off her enviable legs wearing gold peep-toes.

VV Brown often wears edgy, unknown designers or a lot of vintage pieces, but on this occasion I can spot an embellished Topshop jacket.

The look is paired with a vintage faux-fur hat, black pants and nude ballet pumps.

Jenny Frost’s dress says one thing, “I want to attention.”

I may have liked the dress if it had fit better.  It just a piece of material hanging from her paired with a black belt.

“UNITE Unveiled: Gen Art’s Fresh Faces In Fashion”, LA

‘The Hills’ star Kristen Cavallari looked lovely wearing a lacy nude top with a black leather skirt and nude patent Brian Atwood heels.

I’m very impressed that her flesh coloured bra isn’t immediately noticeable.

If this was Heidi Montag she would’ve won a bright pink bra just to draw attention to herself.

“Rock A Little, Feed A Lot” Benefit Concert, LA

Marcia Cross looked surprisingly raunchy in her Dsquared² embellished top, with James Jean’s “Twiggy” legging jeans.

It’s hard to believe Isla Fisher is a mother of one, because looks so young.

She kept her look super casual wearing a graphic print tee, short black leather skirt and zipper gladiator sandals.

Jenna Dewan opted for a H&M multi-coloured striped dress, paired with black leggings and navy pumps.

02 X Awards 2009, London

Yasmin Le Bon wore a berry velvet suit from her YLB for Wallis collection, paired with a black blouse.

Make-up free but still gorgeous.

The Scene Record Release Party, LA

Selena Gomez is the epitome of chic at her album launch party wearing nude silk top, a chocolate sequin mini skirt and nude patent heels.

The side-parted pony tail gives this look a youthful feel which has been missing from previous looks.

Who Wore Elizabeth & James Better? Shawn Johnson or Isla Fisher

Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson attended the 2009 CMT Music Awards in Nashville wearing an Elizabeth & James strapless dress with gold sequined heels.

The beautiful silk-chiffon dress has an elastic bodice with pleating at empire waist.

Actress Isla Fisher wore the same dress when she attended the benefit screening of “Crude” in Hollywood last week.

She wore her dress with dove grey heels which I prefer as they work much better with the dress, so Isla wins for me.

This dress is available to purchase from Shopbop.com & myWardrobe.com on sale for $346.50 & £197.

“The Proposal” – Madrid Photocall & Press Conference

I’m in love with Sandra Bullock at the moment as she is giving us so many different flavours of fashion.

At the MTV Movie Awards she gave us a cute mini flirty Abaeté dress.

For The Proposal LA Premiere she wore a slightly edgy Alexander McQueen dress, and for her appearance on the Today Show she wore a fruity Alberta Ferretti floral dress.

Today whilst promoting her latest movie in Madrid she gave us classic look, wearing a Michael Kors chalk pinstripe origami dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

The dress has an artful origami-like pintucked detail which gathers over the skirt creating an elegant draping and volume. I also love the asymmetric hem and the contrasting patent belt.

Her look was paired with a black Azzedine Alaia ankle strap heels.

Immaculate as always.

The Black Eyed Peas New Album Launch Party At VIP Room Theater, Paris

Fergie combined fashion with music on this trip to Paris, as the Black Eyed Peas launched their new album at the VIP Room Theater in Paris last night.

After appearing at the Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 Menswear show yesterday she brought out her sex kitten wild side wearing an Alexander Wang mesh panel dress with some gladiator heels and a large silver cuff.

Montblanc White Nights Festival Reception and Gala Dinner, Russia

Princess of Darkness Eva Green is still sporting red hair, which pops against her black Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 gown with fringed detailing.

Her tangy orange lips doesn’t really work for me, but I do love her dress and the way it elegantly drapes on her.

“Bruno” Los Angeles Premiere

I have really struggled with Isla Fisher’s looks at the Bruno premiere’s, but there’s something about this green Stella McCartney Fall 2009 dress with a black lace overlay and a white yoke that I’m warming to.

Maybe it’s her glowing tan but I prefer the dress on her to the model on the runway.

Isla’s look is paired with black bamboo Stella McCartney clutch, Bulgari jewels and gold Mechante of London ‘Dita Rose’ python pumps.

Rosario Dawson kept her look simple, yet sophisticated wearing a Narciso Rodriguez LBD with a keyhole detail, a silver cuff and black peep-toes.

No make-up yet still so beautiful.  Some girls have all the luck.

Stephanie Pratt’s aqua one-shoulder draped dress is gorgeous, but she appears to have over-done her bronzer.

Less is more Stephanie.

Christina Ricci wears a slate grey slinky Opening Ceremony dress which is loosely cinched at the waist with gold belt.

The petite star boosts her tiny figure with a fierce pair of ultra-high chunky Lanvin heels.

I’ll guess that she’s not wearing a bra again, but at least we’re not seeing any tell-tale signs.

‘It’s On With Alexa Chung’, New York

Whilst making her way to the MTV studio’s to appear on Alexa Chung’s show, Leighton Meester was spotted wearing a Thakoon Resort 2009 printed dress with Christian Louboutin lace-up booties.

It’s good to see Leighton smiling and back to brunette locks which I much prefer on her.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Like it wasn’t hot enough yesterday Megan Fox sent temperatures soaring when she arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theater to appear on “Letterman” wearing a LBD by Herve Leroux with Courtney Crawford heels.

I think Megan is starting to get the hang of looking chic and sexy as she stunned wearing her sexy pencil dress with a sheer plunging neckline.

Her make-up was the right shade whilst her luscious brunette locks were swept to one side.

fuse’s “No. 1 Countdown”, New York

Early today Megan sported a very casual look at she appeared on the fuse’s no.1 countdown.

Sporting a biker leather jacket Megan wore a Stella McCartney leopard print tank top with black leggings and purple Brian Atwood “Lola” heels.

“L.A. Candy” Book Signing, LA

Returning to her natural roots Lauren Conrad signed copies of her book “L.A. Candy” By Lauren Conrad for fans at the Grove yesterday.

Sporting a familiar hairstyle the former ‘Hills’ star wore a satin black mini-skirt, black Louboutin’s and a tie dyed batwing sleeved blouse.

It is me or does Lauren seem sincerely happy?  I guess not having to film the Hills is a welcome relief for her.

Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen Premiere, Sydney

Isabel Lucas split from her co-stars to promote “Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen” in Australia this week.

Whilst Megan Fox was dazzling the crowd in a bright fuschia pink Armani Privé dress, the Australian actress opted for a black embroidered Marchesa Fall 2009 jumpsuit.

Eh??? Jumpsuit I hear you say. Surprisingly this is a jumpsuit or a playsuit as I like to call the short versions.

On Isabel it’s hard to appreciate the embroidered detail because her playsuit has a black lining the runway version doesn’t have.

Tights, Jimmy Choo Tahiti glitter peep-toe pumps and a black headband completed the look.

Headbands will never been the same after Paris Hilton overused them during Cannes Film Festival.

‘Coco Avant Chanel’ Australian Premiere

Lara Bingle opted for one piece from the Chanel Fall 2009 collection to attend this premiere.

Her black bouclé jacket had white and black ruffled cuff detail, but thankfully not the white collar.

I don’t think the collar would have worked with her casual look of jeans and YSL ankle boots.

Carol’s Daughter Hand And Foot Spa, New York

Rihanna attended this opening wearing a very smart ensemble.

She teamed a sexy figure hugging slate grey A.L.C Twisty dress with a tailored Preen Hawk wool blazer and cute polka dot peep-toe heels.

It’s such a shame her wild hair is such a distraction from all that’s good about this look.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Jada Pinkett-Smith looked outstanding wearing a figure-hugging khaki Dolce & Gabbana strapless bustier dress with metallic skyscraper heels.

Jada’s body looks amazing and this dress full appreciates her stunning figure.

It looks like she has eased up on the weights which I’m very thankful for.

Celebration Dinner Honoring 2009 Los Angeles Film Festival Keyote Films, LA

Here’s another Dolce & Gabbana dress, this time it black and worn by Scarlett Johansson.

I love the ruched detail which runs down the front of her fitted dress and the cute puffy shoulders.

Gold satin peep toe pumps complete the look.

Hopefully we’ll see her wearing more colourful dresses in the future.

“Bruno” Paris Premiere

For some reason Isla Fisher’s reminds me of a mermaid in her strapless sea-green embellished Julien McDonald dress.

I think this is one of her worst ever red carpet looks.

The dress is looks like something you could pick up in a market plus her hair and make-up are just awful. Hugely disappointed in her.

Who Wore 3.1 Phillip Lim Better? Thandie Newton or Isla Fisher


Actress Thandie Newton will always be a red carpet favourite, as she rarely gets it wrong.

When attending the London premiere of Rachel Getting Married during the London Film Festival, Thandie wore a stunning yellow 3.1 Phillip Lim Embellished mini dress.

A black belt, clutch and YSL heels, accessorized her look.

Isla Fisher wore the same dress when she appeared on Good Morning America, to promote her movie Confessions of a Shopaholic.

She opted for a tan leather jacket, belt and platform heels to accessorize her look.

As much as I do like the tan accessories Isla opted for, I think Thandie works this look better, so she wins for me.


You can buy this dress from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $525, and the international site for £440.42/€586.28.
