Social Events Of The Week

Out & About, New York

Rihanna may have worn her Stéphane Rolland Spring 2009 Couture gown on the red carpet at the 2009 Glamour Women of the Year Awards, but inside she did a quick change into this stunning Jasmine di Milo Spring 2010 gown.

The ombre silk tulle gown is divine with it’s sexy thigh-high split and gathered details on the hips.

Many of you didn’t think she could carry off the previous gown, but think she rocked both.

Royal Rajasthan Gala, London

There was a time when I had nothing nice to say about Sigourney Weaver, but she continues to impress.

From her previous Donna Karan gown, to this stunning ruby Naeem Khan Fall 2009 draped satin one- shoulder gown with jeweled trim bodice which I simply adore.

At present she can currently do no wrong.

“A Magical Evening” Gala, New York

I’m still catching my breathe from looking at the stunning Selita Ebanks on this red carpet.

She looks like an angel wearing a white one-shouldered J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2009 gown, which has had its second outing on the red carpet.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Jane Krakowski chose a one shouldered grey embroidered Christian Cota Fall 2009 dress.

I like the dress, especially the embroidered detail, but I’m not sure it quite works on Jane.

She’s quite broad shouldered so this look isn’t particularly flattering.

Montblanc 9th Annual 24 Hr Plays on Broadway After Party, New York

Emmy Rossum is wearing a lot of black lately, but her black jacquard J. Mendel Fall 2009 sleeveless dress which has been modified from the runway is stunning.

She pairs her dress with t-bar heels, I just wish she also wore the runway belt.

“Exposed: 10 Years In Hollywood Book Launch Party”, LA

This isn’t my favourite look on Jessica Alba by any means.

She doesn’t breathe any life into her Narciso Rodriguez Resort 2010 black and white dress which she pairs with Christian Louboutin Lady Page pumps.

MTV’s “It’s On With Alexa Chung”, New York

Rihanna strikes a pose at the MTV Studios after her interview on Alexa Chung’s show, which you can watch by here

I thought it was quite appropriate that Rihanna was seeing Alexa wearing ankle boots, as Alexa is the Queen of ankle boots.

Rihanna paired her boots with an Alexander McQueen asymmetric-stripe sweater dress which we’ve seen on Cheryl Cole.

More From The 2009 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Of the rest, Laura Linney was definitely the best.

I love the mellow yellow colour of her asymmetrical Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture gown, and the embellished waist. She looked outstanding.

Taraji P. Henson looked gorgeous in her J.Mendel Fall 2008 chiffon gown. It was quite dramatic, without going over the top.

She completed her look with a black satin Mary Norton clutch.

The trend for wearing electric blue continues with Mary-Louise Parker. Her Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown had asymmetrical tiers from the bodice, and a chiffon hem and train.

She accessorized her gown with silver jewels and a Mary Norton clutch and Chopard jewels.

Sandra Bullock was another one of my favourites in this vanilla Dior gown.

I love how her hair falls to the opposite direction of her asymmetrical gown.

Rachel Griffiths wore a one-shouldered golden Ralph Rucci silk gown, with a Judith Leiber vintage handbag Decades Inc, Liseanne Frankfurt jewels and bronze Vanessa Noel heels.

Kyra Sedgwick did not wear L’Wren Scott as I had predicted. Instead she wore a strapless red belted Oscar de la Renta gown, with Fred Leighton jewels.

Amanda Seyfried wore an ethereal pearl Stella McCartney silk asymmetric gown, which had a beaded detail on the shoulder.

She completed her look with a Daniel Swarovski clutch.

Heidi Klum wore an incredibly cute strapless vintage James Galanos pouf dress, with black and red polka dots from Decades.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin multi buckle sandals.

I was not crazy about Isla Fisher’s two-tone nude Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown. I would have liked it to be all one colour.

Elisabeth Moss was one of the many ladies who picked red last night, hers was vintage Givenchy, and she picked Garrard jewels to complete her look.

Jane Krakowski opted for a J. Mendel gown, which she wore with Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry.

Melissa George does not do safe, which is why her thigh-high split ice blue Armani Prive gown has an interesting black fan detail on the bodice.

Tina Fey’s Roberto Cavalli plunging gown, also did not wow me.

Surprise guest of the night was Alek Wek. I don’t remember the last time I saw her on the red carpet.

The supermodel wore a Christian Dior Fall 2008 mini dress, which showed off her impossibly long legs.

Vanessa Hudgens wore a nude beaded Alberta Ferretti gown, with a candy coloured necklace.

Madeline Zima looks youthful but elegant. She has an amazing figure and I love how this dress shows her shape and the curves hit all the right points.

Viola Davis’ gown for some reason reminded me of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Zac Posen Oscar 2007 gown with shape and the lines.

She dressed well for her figure, and the colour is so complimentary to her skin.

Maria Menounos wore a cute purple ruffle one shoulder Ina Soltani gown.

Samantha Harris wore the same designer, but picked her dress in the colour of the moment – electric blue.

Christina Hendricks has curves to die for. The stunning redhead looked ravishing wearing a custom black silk sculpted strapless Tadashi gown.

Anna Paquin wore a purple Herve Leroux gown, which had a ruched bodice and draped detail on the side.

2008 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Every morning when I am looking at the pictures of events from the previous night, I am always looking to say wow. I had two moment like that today, and the first was Nicole Kidman.

I am not sure you will all love the ice queen in her stunning spaghetti strapped L’Wren Scott Spring 2009 ice white gown, with jeweled detail on the empire-waist, but I absolutely adore her here.

She is so statuesque, regal even. I came imagine jaws were dropping all night.

Along with Ali Larter, Nicole is up for Best Dressed this week.

And if you think the front is amazing, look at the detail on the back.

Kate Bosworth did not opt for a stunning gown, but the affects are just the same.

Her black tuxedo-style Chanel dress with a white bib, was amazing and sophisticated enough for her stand on the same red carpet as Nicole Kidman.

I do not think there has ever been a time when I was not impressed with Natalie Portman.

She appears to be a quiet shy retiring type, but girlfriend knows how to master the red carpet, and she did so again, wearing a black Jolibe Fall 2008 dress with a sequined panel going down the front, and folds on the skirt.

She completed her look with a pair of pom pom shoes, which she also owns in purple.

There was a time when America Ferrera would wear nothing but black. Thank god those days appear to be over as the Ugly Betty actress took to the red carpet last night wearing a multi-coloured sleeved Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2008 embroidered dress.

Love the dress, not so crazy about the Amy Wino hair ‘do, which she has sported before.

Sarah Michelle Gellar opted against her bangs, which she sported last week in favour of a messy up ‘do.

Like many women at this event she opted for a white dress. This dress was by Vicente Villarin Spring 2009

The beaded detail on Selita Ebanks’ dress is the most interesting detail on her grey gown with a black overlay.

I love the way she constantly adapts her crop. I wish I had the guts to go for the chop.

What is up with young Hollywood?

Taylor Swift should be trying to give people like Natalie Portman a run for her money, but instead she opts for a long, plain, boring black gown.

Taylor is usually very impressive on the red carpet so I am a touch, sorry very disappointed in this effort.

When she rocks, she rocks, and Fergie rock it last night.

The singer arrived looking sweet and innocent wearing an amazing white Michael Kors gown, with a jeweled bodice. Can’t wait to see this girls wedding gown.

You may have noticed that Fergie has put on a bit of weight. The singer put on 13 pounds to play a character named Saraghina in the upcoming movie musical Nine.

Debra Messing is not often on the red carpet, and she rarely gets it wrong. On this occasion, I think she did, as this Ralph Lauren Fall 2008 dress does anything for her at all.

Despite it being just a black dress by Gucci, I do like it on Tyra Banks as for once she is toned down and not over the top.

This is not my favourite look for Jane Krakowski. I think it is her hair, because her strapless Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti satin bustier dress is a gorgeous berry colour.

2008 Whitney Museum of American Art Gala Red Carpet

Finally someone has worn this multicolour lightning bolt and cityscape print Versace Fall 2008 dress.

I really enjoyed the selection of these dresses that were presented by Donatella, and I am happy Becki Newton has worn this purple one.

She wore her unique tank strapped dress with Versace black heels.

Christina Ricci opted for a backless Gothic-style grey Atelier Versace Fall 2008 dress, which could not be more perfect for her.

I love the embroidery detail.

Actor Patrick Dempsey, who is the current face of Versace Fall 2008 menswear, posed with Donatella Versace, who as always looks a knock-out with her body to die for.

Of course her stunning lilac gown is totally unique and has not been seen on the runway.

Despite the simple and non-revealing (for her) nature of Mariah Carey’s dress, I feel very underwhelmed looking at her in it.

Emma Roberts looks very grown up in this black shimmering strapless mini Versace bustier dress, with Jimmy Choo heels.

Jane Krakowski dares to wear this Versace Fall 2008 dress that has also been worn by Donatella herself, but totally look amazing in it.

The actress wore her midnight blue wet-look dress, with gold Louboutin’s.

Juliette Lewis’ Versace Fall 2008 fuchsia heels are working better for me than the beige Versace dress.

The dress feels a little tame for the wild star.

For the first time ever I feel that a dress works better on the runway than on Helena Christensen. I really don’t think this Versace Fall 2008 asymmetric lace dress works on her.
