Runway To The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien – Jennifer Connelly In Phi

InStyle UK’s October 2009 cover girl Jennifer Connelly was on “The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien” last Friday.

On the show Jennifer talked about her tan, her haunted Brooklyn home and her new animated movie “9″.

The Balenciaga Fall 2009 campaign girl wasn’t wearing any pieces from that collection, instead she wore a Phi Fall 2009 sequin embroidered dress paired with the runway booties, but without the long leather runway gloves.

I love the edginess of the look, which Jennifer always manages to pull off.

The look is typically Jennifer – effortless and not forced.

Being the human equivalent of magpie, I love the way it sparkles.

Jennifer Connelly For InStyle UK October 2009

Jennifer Connelly is an absolute knock-out on the cover of the October 2009 issue of InStyle UK, which is on sale tomorrow.

I’m trying to locate my jaw which is on the floor somewhere as I’m blown away by her amazing editorial, which was shot by Mark Abrahams and styled by Leslie Fremar.

And it’s not just the cover, the editorial is even more impressive with the star wearing a black Calvin Klein dress with Nina Ricci boots, and a Rodarte silk chiffon and crystal dress paired with the Fall 2009 Nicholas Kirkwood runway boots.

As well as being an Oscar-winning actress, Jennifer is also the stunning face of both Balenciaga and Revlon.

Hopefully we will get to see her wearing Balenciaga and other designers when she starts to promote her new movie Creation which is based on the true story of Charles Darwin’s struggle to publish his theory of evolution ‘The Origin of Species’, and how his grief over the death of their beloved daughter Annie nearly destroys him and their marriage.

The film is due out on 25 September which she stars alongside her husband actor Paul Bettany.

Here are some extracts from her interview with Lucie Young:

On her daily uniform: “”A much-loved pair of old biker boots, figure-hugging jeans and an acid yellow T-shirt from American Apparel. I tend to recycle. I have Doc Martens I’ve had since I was 15 that I still wear. I have to retire them soon because they are falling apart”.

Comic Con Day 2

Jennifer Connelly can go either way. Chic or edgy.

On this occasion she opted for chic, wearing a navy RM by Roland Mouret Mistral long sleeve dress with silver strappy sandals.

The pencil dress with pleated detailing on the bodice gives Jennifer a sleek silhouette.

Effortless and gorgeous as always.

Last week I wondered if Anna Faris was glowing in her Jay Godfrey dress. Now I realise that it’s the San Diego sunshine that is giving the stars at “Comic Con” a positive glow.

Regular readers will know I am dead against Audrina Patridge’s lighter locks, but when she looks this beautiful in her fitted cream Karl Lagerfeld dress with matching Christian Louboutin Differa sandals, I can’t help but think this is one of her best ever red carpet looks.

My feelings for Hervé Léger dresses changes with each wearer.

On Kim Kardashian I hate them, but I think Kristin Bell looks really cute in her forest green dress.

I really wish more stars would wear the more interesting Fall 2009 pieces, but Kristin manages to stay on the right side of tasteful so I can forgive on this occasion.

Maybe that’s because she’s not showing us her bootie in the dress and also she paired her dress with a stunning necklace, and nude Jimmy Choo’s.

Mary Lynn Rajskub looks adorable wearing a purple Black Halo bustier pleated dress.

Her sleeveless dress has chiffon shoulder straps, a pleated A-line skirt and a red skinny leather belt. She pairs her gorg dress with nude heels.

This is one of my favourite looks of this event.

I love bright colours on the red carpet and Ashley Greene more than fulfills my love wearing a bright fuschia pink Doucette Duvall Spring 2009 dress, which she simply pairs with Jimmy Choo Verity sandals.

Anita Briem has the same idea, but she paired her Jimmy Choo Verity sandals with a cute belted black playsuit.

As much as Rachel McAdams’ embellished tank top is crying for attention, I’m instantly drawn to her Casadei Mary Janes.

They’re a vision of pure beauty.

Zoe Saldana is very much the 2009 ‘Can’t Step A Foot Wrong On The Red Carpet’  Thandie Newton.

This girl can do no wrong at the moment.

Even when her look consists of a simple white blouse with a black balloon shaped mini skirt with banded waistline she’s still amazing.

She jazzes up her look with floral t-bar heels.

Wow..the slide continues.

I’m not expecting Megan Fox to wear gowns every time she hits the red carpet, but she has to work on her casual look because it seems she can only give us a sexy look successfully.

Her looks consists of a Gucci Fall 2009 blue micro jacquard silk lurex boxy spencer jacket, a black sheer top and black jeans.

These heels are an investment piece. You’ll be able to wear them this Spring, Fall and beyond.

They are so incredibly eye-catching, that you will no doubt be asked, “Where did you get your shoes from?”, when you step out in them.

Jennifer has a pair, Carine Roitfeld no doubt has a pair, and you can also own them by purchasing them from Net-A-Porter for £1,370.

Social Events Of The Week

2009 MusiCares “Person Of The Year” Gala, LA

Camilla Belle arrived at this event glowing with pure gorgeousity, wearing a short magenta Marchesa dress.

The mini dress had a multitude of beautiful embellishments all over the top half of the dress, and a satin skirt which kicks out at the back.

My number 2 girl crush completed the look with a Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch, and silver peep-toes.

AMPAS’ Scientific And Technical Awards Dinner, LA

I really wanted to love this gorgeous Oscar de la Renta strapless gown, but it’s Jessica Biel who ruins this for me.

This could be in on a mannequin for all the life she is putting into this gown.

2009 Writers Guild Awards, LA

Kate Walsh was one of the presenters at this event, and she looked so very harming wearing a black strapless Missoni Spring 2009 embellished gown.

Mena Suvari wore a Missoni look very similar to this, but hers was a jumpsuit.

“He’s Just Not That Into You” Australian Premiere

Ginnifer Goodwin braved the rain to attend this premiere wearing a lime green Brian Reyes Spring 2009 dress, with a rise and fall hem, and a matching croc belt.

She completed her look with black sandals.

I was loving the longer locks from the LA premiere. I’m not loving the crop so much.

The Reader Berlin Film Festival Premiere

This Lanvin tiered dress Kate Winslet chose for this premiere was perfectly pretty, but I am dying for her to get back to her colourful red carpet dresses.

At the moment it’s black, after black, after black with no wow-factor.

I hope she doesn’t wear black at the Oscars. I might just lose it if she does.

CBS’s The Early Show, New York

To promotes her new movie He’s Just Not Into You on CBS’s The Early Show, Jennifer Connelly looked very chic in a Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 ensemble, with Christian Louboutin Mary Jane heels.

Vogue Pre-BAFTA Party

Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s mini black embellished Balmain Spring 2009 dress, is dangerously close to giving her a wardrobe malfunction.

Claudia Schiffer doesn’t seem to have made an effort for this event.

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

Whilst Isla Fisher posed for photographers outside the David Letterman show, she wore a pretty white Zac Posen cap sleeve dress.

She gave her look an edge by wearing a clunky silver statement necklace, and Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy heels.

“The Private Lives of Pippa Lee” Photocall – Berlin Film Festival

Blake Lively is not only bland in New York, but also bland in Berlin.

Why did she just stop trying?

What is she wearing? Well Vena Cava of course, with Moschino Mary Janes.
