“Mad Men” – Season 3 Premiere

January Jones was one of the first celebs to wear Andrew GN on the red carpet during awards season earlier this year, and she has stayed loyal to the designer wearing his silk navy blue Fall 2009 dress to this red carpet event.

I love that she belted the dress to give it more shape, whilst her simple black patent Brian Atwood ‘Maniacs’ pumps, and wavy blonde locks complete this sophisticated look.

You may recognise the dress to be similar to the dress Kerry Washington wore on the Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien back in June with the diamond shapes cut into the neckline which are trimmed with leather.

Christina Hendricks looked radiant as she opted for another dress by Catherine Malandrino.

This time she wore a black asymmetrical long sleeve Malandrino Fall 2009 dress with bird embroidery detail on the bodice.  This was daring choice, but she totally made it work by keeping accessories to a minimum.

“Live! with Regis and Kelly”, New York

Leslie Mann always makes an impact on the red carpet.

When she arrived for her appearance on “Live With Regis And Kelly'” in New York, she is wearing a black diamond organza sleeveless blouse, a chiffon flutter skirt and a patent leather bow belt from the Erin Fetherston Fall 2009 collection.

This is such a cute girlie look.

Bagatelle Party, Paris

Oh to be Dita von Teese.

The star is wearing one of the day dresses from Elie Saab’s Fall 2009 collection in dove grey, which she also owns in black.

Lace peep-toes and a collection of white bangles completes her look, whilst her hair and make-up are as you would expect.

“Spread” Los Angeles Premiere

Demi Moore arrived with eye-candy Ashton Kutcher wearing a Louis Vuitton lavender dress with a draped bodice and cut-out details on the side.

She completed her look with multi-coloured Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a black clutch.

My request to Rumer Willis remains the same. Please dye your hair back to black.

The young actress wore a silver metallic strapless Karen Millen dress and Christian Louboutin heels.

Anne Heche looked very sexy wearing a black satin ruched Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress with brocade and jeweled sleeves.

This is the best she has looked this year.

Social Events Of The Week

Vogue Australia 50th Anniversary Dinner, Syndey

Unfortunately we didn’t get any dramatic looks, no picks from our Red Carpet Wish lists and no couture from Cate Blanchett at this event, but regardless it’s always a treat to see her on the red carpet.

She looks outstanding wearing a burnt orange long sleeved vintage Ossie Clark gown with an ivory necklace.

“A Streetcar Named Desire” Press Night, London

Rachel Weisz wore an animal print Isabel Marant Fall 2009 sheer with black peep-toes accented with a gold floral detail.

Although I’m not crazy about the detail on her shoes, I adore her dress, even though it’s showing us her bra.

Isabel Marant make such fabulous pieces.  I hope we see more celebrities wearing their pieces in future.

Out & About, Berlin

Even when she’s out shopping in Berlin, Diane Kruger is still incredibly stylish.

The German actress wore a Stella McCartney Resort 2010 ensemble which included a yellow tank top she wore off-the-shoulder, with a blue striped tulip skirt.

She added flats and a white Chanel quilted bag to complete her ‘off-duty’ look.

I adore her skirt. Another piece added to my never-ending wish list.

X-Games “Red Bull Toasted” Honors Action Sports Icon Travis Pastrana, LA

A LBD as short and tight as this can go so wrong, but I think Audrina Patridge looks amazing in this Michelle Mason Spring 2009 dress.

She’s starting to come into her own now that she’s no longer in Lauren’s shadow.

“Taking Woodstock” New York Premiere

With her long wavy hair falling down her shoulders, Claire Danes wore a blue silk Sonia Rykiel Resort 2010 wrap dress with delicate ruffles.

Her dress is longer than the runway version, which I can’t say I’m surprised about considering we’re talking about Claire Danes.

In keeping with her usual simple style, she only added a platinum bracelet and strappy heels to complete her look.

Lynn Collins has finally been weened off wearing top hats to every red carpet appearance, but she’s replaced that look with a headband.

Wearing a Kova & T green mini dress and nude Brian Atwood Katie Bis sandals I would say her look was great had it not been for the over excessive bronzing.

Dolce & Gabbana: The Make Up Selfridges Launch, London

So now all those Scarlett Johansson posters in Selfridges yesterday make sense, they were prepping for Scarlett’s Dolce & Gabbana make-up launch.

The actress looked very sophisticated and refined in her Dolce & Gabbana ensemble. I especially love her floral flutter sleeve blouse and orange sorbet peep-toes, but I’m still struggling with the hair.

I do usually love Scarlett wearing bold red lips, but I don’t think it quite works with her ensemble.

“JLo for Yamamay” Collection Launch, Rome

Jennifer Lopez was in Rome yesterday to promote her new underwear collection.

The actress wore an ivory chiffon gown with an embellished neckline and a matching Alaia waist belt.

She carried a glittering silver Swarovski clutch which sparkled like her jeweled T-bar sandals.

Her locks were have been lighten with some blonde streaks which I’m not particularly fond of.

How many of you feel like you have seen this look many times before?

Mont Blanc, Austria

Dita von Teese wore a traditional Austrian dirndl while at the Mont Blanc boutique in Salzburg.

It would’ve been great if she’d changed her hairstyle just this once to really get into the spirit of things.

2009 Salzburg Festival – ‘Welcome to Nowhere’ Premiere, Austria

This is the Dita von Teese we’re most used to seeing, looking glamorous wearing a Moschino cream tiered plisse chiffon gown.

AMC Cocktail Reception, LA

Christina Hendricks strikes a stunning pose wearing a emerald Catherine Malandrino pleated empire waist dress with ruffle sleeves.

Gold accessories complete this look.

January Jones wore an interesting sheer Sretsis dress with two diamante bow appliqués to cover her modesty.

I love her hairstyle. Tres chic.

Social Events Of The Week

Oceana, Nautica & Vanity Fair Celebrate World Oceans Day, New York

Amber Valletta wore a strapless silver Oscar de la Renta Resort 2010 dress, which was recently presented.

The dress has an interesting origami detail on the skirt, which very much reminds me of the strapless dress Myleene Klass wore during Cannes recently.

This is a beautiful sophisticated dress, so I really don’t like how Amber has opted to toughen up her look with those black peep-toes booties.

I’ve been wondering what is it about Estelle that’s so different. She seems to be glowing lately. Then I realised that she has taken off her braces.

I love the swirly print mini dress, it has a very 60s vibe to it, but her lilac clutch, and blue bangle ruin this look for me.

The saying goes, “Before you leave the house, take one thing off.” In this case it should have been two.

Her look is paired with tan Jimmy Choo Prize t-bar sandals.

3rd Annual American Institute For Stuttering Benefit Gala, LA

I love this silver and black beaded Marc Bouwer Spring 2009 halter dress, but not on Emily Blunt.

The dress looks spectacular on the runway, because it is considerably shorter. Emily should have opted for the shorter length.

Simon Aboud Book Launch Party, London

Looking stylishly dishevelled Kate Bosworth wore an interesting painted Josh Goot Fall 2009 top, which looks like it should belong in an art gallery.

She paired her work of art with a simple black mini skirt, a gold purse and Nicholas Kirkwood booties.

8th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, LA

Angie Harmon looks amazing wearing a Ikat printed chiffon Kaufman Franco wrap dress.

I love the leather straps, as it reminds me of my favourite Michael Kors dress, which has the same detail.

Is it me or does AnnaLynne McCord just get hotter with every red carpet appearance?

This girl really knows how to make things interesting. I should be frowning that she’s wearing a simple black sheath dress, but the back detail and her elegantly coiffed hair really make this a sizzling look.

Keep it coming AnnaLynne.

Oceana Celebrates World Oceans Day, LA

January Jones’ look is ultra soft and feminine in this lemon dress.

I’m sure you will have noticed that the braided belt details on the dress, matched the braids in her hair to complete this Grecian inspired look.

I adore her make-up.

Apollo Theater’s 75th Anniversary Gala Concert & Awards Ceremony, New York

Mariah Carey please give us something new. I feel like I have seen this type of Roberto Cavalli dress on her a million times before.

2009 Costume Institute Gala – The One’s I Missed


The Costume Institute Gala was bigger than the Oscars in terms of pictures, but I was determined to find Oluchi Onweagba, after Dominika was disappointed I didn’t feature her the first time around.

Dominka I promised you, if I’d found these pictures yesterday, I wouldn’t have left Oluchi out intentionally. Talk about goddess.

The gorgeous model is simply breath-taking in her black and white Oscar de la Renta Fall 2009 gown.

January Jones was also a golden girl wearing a Michael Kors metallic long sleeved shift dress.

I’m getting a early Sienna Miller hippy 60s chic vibe from this look.

Anna Friel goes way too short in a sassy lace strapless bustier dress, with strappy black sandals.

She’s a little too naked for this type of event imo.

Rosario Dawson wore a bubble-gum pink Diane von Furstenberg strapless ruched gown.

I love colour, but I’m not getting much va va voom from her, just like I didn’t get it from Eva Mendes.

Arriving on the arm of the designer herself, Elizabeth Banks looked fantastic in an Alberta Ferretti mini dress.

I love the cut with its plunging black sequined neckline, with the navy embellished skirt.

Short, sassy and sweet, that best describes Milla Jovovich as she arrived wearing a chartreuse mini Marni Fall 2009 dress, with an embroidered beaded neckline.

Taupe peep-toes from the same collection completed the look.

Hilary Swank wore a Calvin Klein burnt orange dress. What I like about this dress is the gathered details.

Hilary is such a blank canvas, you can give her almost anything and she would pull it off, so I would have preferred her in something a lot more interesting.

I still swoon when I think about her wearing that stunning Givenchy Couture lilac dress to Fashion Rocks last year.

Cheryl Tiegs looked outstanding and graceful wearing a midnight blue vintage Norman Norell sequined covered strapless gown.

Her accessories included vintage Neil Lane jewelr, and a vintage Judith Leiber minaudiere.

The legendary supermodel showed the new breed what style and class is all about.

Chloé LA Boutique Opening Celebration

Kate Bosworth looked so gorgeous and fresh faced at this event.

As co-host she wore grey silk embellished tank, with a lemon floor length chiffon skirt from the Chloé Fall 2009 collection, all whilst showing off an embellished cream Chloé bag.

It’s just so easy for Kate.

Zoe Saldana is doing her best to state her claim as the ‘Girl of the Moment’.

She gives us hit after red carpet hit, and this Chloé Spring 2009 dress comes second in my admiration after her red Prabal Gurung dress last week.

This ethereal white shift, with a keyhole detail, just oozes sweet sophistication.

Definitely one to continue to watch.

Leighton Meester is the a typical Chloé girl, cute, sassy, young and beautiful.

I love her look, but her satin apricot Spring 2009 dress looks like it needs adjusting a little. It kinda looks a bit twisted on her.

I simply adore her bracelet, her hair and flawless make up.

Christian Louboutin Dillian Flower pumps from the 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2009 collection complete the look.

Chloe Sevigny, who co-hosted this event with Kate, wore a navy blue pant suit from the Spring 2009 collection, under a white blazer with scalloped edged lapels from the same collection.

Like her co-host this is easy for Chloe, and I appreciated her efforts in not wearing Look 29 as presented, and mixing things up a little.

Looking as stylish as ever, Camilla Belle opted out of wearing white, like so many others, but that only made her stand out even more.

Her leather-look Chloé Pre-Fall 2009 LBD, had cute bow ties going down the back. It maybe black, but it ain’t safe. Just look at how short it is.

Two-tone Chloé Spring 2009 heels, and a black clutch complete the look.

Wow so many of my girl crushes graced this event. Fabulous overload.

The absolute beauty of Lake Bell’s look, is how simple, clean and fresh it all looks.

She never tries too hard, but always looks outstanding.

January Jones wore a Chloé draped Grecian gown, belted with a blush pink sash.

Her make-up was a flawless as her dress.

Maria Sharapova serves up an other ace, proving her off-court style is worthy of our admiration.

The plunge neck nude Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with the navy sash is fabulous, but her hair and heels lose her a few points.

Molly Sims opted for a champagne and black printed dress from the Chloe Pre-Fall 2009 collection, with clear embellishments.

I love this sassy dress, which she wore with Chloé Spring 2009 bow heels.

Amber Valletta’s Chloé Spring 2009 asymmetric dress, with a ruffled neckline is very chic, but her hairstyle really lets her down.

I love these peachy/nude colours on Camilla Alves.

Her look was from the Chloé Resort 2009 collection, which included a boyfriend blazer, tank top, embellished mini skirt, nude heels and a clutch I would die for.

Gaile Lai’s khaki Chloé Spring 2009 jumpsuit is so incredibly chic, but I really don’t like her choice of heels.

Ever Carradine picked the only dress from the Chloé Resort 2009 collection, which I never expected to see on the red carpet. I really don’t think this dress will flatter anyone.

Estelle’s black playsuit is well accessorized, but I still feel like she is very muted lately. She’s not the Estelle we are used to seeing.

Emma Stone’s cobalt blue long sleeved shift dress, was worn with Jimmy Choo Samoa Kid sandals.

Dear Agyness Deyn, we all know break-ups are tough, but remember you’re flying the flag for British fashion. Please dress more appropriately in future.

Debbie Matenopoulos presents The Daily 10, and during awards season she also presents Fashion Police.

Debbie, I think it’s time for you to turn yourself in.

She is wearing a Alice + Olivia Penelope party dress.

This is your second to last chance to give your shout outs for Best Dressed this week.

Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better? January Jones or Marisa Miller


We find it hard to forgive red carpet re-runs at high profile events, because the pictures are beamed all over the world, so there should be no excuse for not knowing x has already worn the same dress.

At 60th Primetime Emmy Awards January Jones wore this white Dolce & Gabbana corset gown. This is about the time she was just getting into her red carpet groove.

We were shocked when model Marisa Miller arrived at the 44th annual Academy Of Country Music Awards this weekend, wearing the same dress.

Shocked because she hadn’t done her red carpet homework, but then not so shocked that she worked the hell out of this dress, with her freakishly perfect body.

When you are up against a supermodel, there is usually only one winner. Marisa wins this for me.
