Topshop/Topman VIP Dinner

Geez how many launch parties does one store opening need?

On Tuesday Topshop had the celebrity packed preview dinner, and again last night it appears the dinner was for the A listers.

You don’t get more A list than Jennifer Lopez, who arrived looking dazzling wearing a white strapless L’Wren Scott Spring 2009 jacquard dress.

Her look was complete with those Christian Louboutin multi buckle sandals, she seems to be obsessed with, and bangs that look like they need an extra inch taken off them.

Kate Moss, who makes her Topshop US debut today, wore her favourite black YSL tux jacket, a tiered minidress, black tights and YSL Trib Two heels.

Rosario Dawson was radiant in a raspberry asymmetric Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 dress, which had a beautiful gold embellished panel, complimenting her gold Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toes.

Wearing head-to-toe black, Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s look included a black a fringed Topshop dress, with a leather jacket and studded heels.

Anna Wintour and daughter Bee Shaffer were there to support the British brand.

Bee wore a short white Alexander Wang jersey dress, with *shudders* tights and black heels, whilst her mother opted for her favourite Prada Spring 2009 snake print dress, with a maroon velvet Prada Fall 2009 coat.

Jennifer Hudson had to sing for her supper, wearing a Topshop silver sequined tunic, latex black leggings and red peep-toes.

2009 NAACP Image Awards

Jennifer Hudson pick up her outstanding new artist Award wearing a black Peter Sorenon dress, which had a feathered detail on the hip.

She completed her look with Givenchy lace ankle sandals.

Beyonce perform her song Halo wearing a gorgeous white gown, with a black band, and delicate embellishments on the bodice, which also cascaded down her skirt.

Jada Pinkett Smith wore a maroon strapless Monique Lhuillier gown, with a a vintage Judith Lieber belt.

I must say I am a bit disappointed the bigger stars did not take to the red carpet.

Taraji P. Henson added her increasing star quality to the red carpet wearing a gorgeous lemon halter neck mermaid Zac Posen gown.

I love the ruffled detail down the middle, and the layering of the hem.

A very chic Rosario Dawson walked the red carpet wearing a black silk taffeta Rafael Cennamo full-skirted dress.

Sanaa Lathan looked ravishing in this daring plunge neck jersey Donna Karan gown with black straps.

I am not a fan of Dakota Fanning’s nude strapless down. It feels too naked.

Alfre Woodard wore a Tadashi fuschia iridescent crinkled silk chiffon fly away cocktail dress. Her look was accessorized with a Mary Norton gold clutch.

Chandra Wilson impressed me on this red carpet.

Usually I find a fault, but the hair, the make-up, the jewels, the Daniel Swarovski clutch and her orange Pamella Roland Spring 2008 gown are all faultless.

Can you believe that this is Rudy Huxtable aka Keshia Knight Pulliam?

She stands out on the red carpet wearing an electric blue gown.

After Taraji, Vanessa Williams wore my second favourite gown on this red carpet. I love the colour, and jeweled detail on this one-shouldered gown.

Like Chandra, Tichina Arnold looks flawless. This baby blue gown really stands out and makes her glow.

Holly Robinson Peete wore a coral and silver Naeem Khan Spring 2008 patterned cocktail dress, with pewter strappy heels.

In Jennifer Hudson’s Closet – Balenciaga Gladiator Heels


I was drooling over Jennifer Hudson’s heels when she attended the 2009 Grammy Salute To Clive Davis party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday, which she wore with a Todd Lynn LBD.

Her Balenciaga gladiator heels are exquisite. A perfect piece of shoe art.

Hers were leather through-out, but Matches Fashion sell a leather and suede grey version for £595.

If the black one is what you desire, FarFetch.com sell them for £795/€800/$1,119.

2009 Grammy Awards Show

It is me or is the Grammy show looking better than the Grammy red carpet?

Gwyneth Paltrow was a surprise at this show, but then considering her husband was up for many awards with his group Coldplay, her appearance then no longer becomes a surprise.

The gorgeous actress surprised me by wearing a stunning gold and silver sequined Versace Spring 2009 strapless mini. Unfortunately she didn’t dare to wear without tights.

I can’t remember her ever wearing Versace.

Her look was complete with strappy sandals and Chopard jewels.

My BFF Queen Latifah wore a custom cobalt blue Gustavo Cadile strapless cocktail dress.

I love the way the fringed detail moves as she walks in her stunning gown, and the ruched bodice give her a gorgeous shape.

STUNNING. Whitney Houston blows me away here.

The legendary singer wore a blue and beige ombre strapless Zuhair Murad Resort 2009 gown. The gown had a floral sequin detail at the waist, and sexy side slit.

I feel another girl crush coming on.

Jennifer Hudson continued to look amazing on stage when she performed You Pulled Me Through, which earned her a standing ovation.

Carrie Underwood performed in a gold sequined pant suit, with a nude sheer overlay.

Not sure what the black harness is for.

Following her performance Carrie changed into another Zuhair Murad dress. This one was a green silk chiffon baby doll bubble dress with floral bodice, and beaded cap sleeves.

Katy Perry performs in a fruit of the loon mini dress.

Another gorgeous pink dress from Katy Perry. This time she wore a pale pink silk chiffon v-front ruffled mini Jenny Packham Spring 2009 dress with crystal waist detail and matching pink heels,

Estelle continued her space age look wearing another Bernard Chandran dress in the press room.

09.02.09 Best Dressed

2009 Grammy Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Pretty pink strapless gowns seem to be the order of the day. First worn by Freida Pinto at the BAFTAs, now this gorgeous pink Basil Soda gown has been worn by Katy Perry.

The structure of the gown is exquisite, as I have come to appreciate from Lebanese designers.

The satin ruffle piece on the front of the gown doesn’t bother me, the retro hair fits the look, the pink lips are simply divine, and the subtle Jacob & Co jewels don’t over cook this look.

Most Unexpected Award
When I saw Jennifer Hudson arrive on the red carpet wearing a colour-block RM by Roland Mouret Trenet high neck dress I must admit I was very shocked.

If there was a line of 100 dresses, I would have picked this last for her, but she more than does it justice – and this is not any kind of sympathy vote.

This really is a statement dress, with 3 tones including a white high neck bodice, a grey contrast pleated peplum around the waist, and a dark navy pencil skirt.

Thankfully the hair is pulled back to show off the dress, and her blue suede shoes are Christian Louboutin Declic Suede Pumps. I personally would have preferred a strappy sandal.

Best One-Shouldered Dress Award
Zooey Deschanel stepped out of the box, and tried something new with this cute lilac Luella Spring 2009 dress.

There is much going on with the chiffon layer, the floral appliqué on the shoulder, and the skirt with the draped detail, but this does not overwhelm Zooey.

She wears this dress very confidently, and it suits her kooky style.

The lilac tights I like, the black peep-toes I don’t like.

Best Strapless & Ruffles Award
Sara Bareilles also wore a pink strapless dress from the Luisa Beccaria Spring 2009 collection. It’s so angelic, and I love the red accents.

She completes her look with a Daniel Swarovski silver clutch.

Most Improved Award
After her Cavalli dress at the Pre-Grammy party, Miley Cyrus couldn’t get any worst.

I was pleasantly surprised in her choice of this charming Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2008 asymmetrical gown, and I loved her hairstyle too.

Miley seemed very calm on the red carpet. No over-the-top poses, no obnoxious comments. I was very impressed by her maturity.

What No Bling? Award
Miley’s new BFF Taylor Swift, love for embellished dress was replaced by this Kaufman Franco black jersey gown, with wrap around patent leather strapping.

Continues To Be One To Watch Award
Kim Kardashian’s white/silver Toni Maticevski Spring 2009 dress was very cute, sassy and not at all trashy choice.

I love the organza detailing, which gives the dress a lot of shape and definition.

She worked her look with a pair of silver Christian Louboutin Fortuna slingbacks.

Best Use of Colour Award
I love a burst of colour on the red carpet, and Letoya Luckett certain provide it, with her fuchsia pink mini dress, multi-coloured snake-skin clutch and baby blue pumps.

Best Asymmetrical Gown Award
Looking a lot less bronze than she did the day before, Sheryl Crow looked amazing wearing a water-mix blue Toni Maticevski gown.

I love the slightly ruched bodice.

Golden Girl Award
Carrie Underwood glowed on the red carpet in a gold beaded tulle slip gown from the Zuhair Murad Resort 2009 collection, which she wore with a matching golden Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

I knew she could not stay away from this type of look for long.

It Should Not Have Worked, But It Did Award
Janelle Monae’s equestrian themed look was very charming.

I especially loved the white high collared pleated blouse.

Better With The Coat On Award
Anna Wintour was styling Adele for this event, so there were high hopes.

The Barbara Tfank LBD was nice enough, but I loved the look with the green coat.

Best Colour Block Award
LeAnn Rimes’ Philosophy Spring 2009 dress is so cute, I have to own it.

I love the cerulean blue top half, the heavily embellished waist, and the chiffon khaki skirt. Such a young and fresh look for the singer.

Best Re-Run Award
Iman has already worn this Rachel Roy Spring 2009 strapless dress, which had a embellished bodice and a tulip skirt. Jennifer Nettles wears it equally well.

Just OK Award
Apart from the Princess Leia hair style Audrina Patridge looks nice enough wearing a teal Tadashi strapless column gown with pleated bodice.

The Hills star walked the carpet Hans Solo.
