Miu Miu Fall 2009



Miu Miu’s Fall 2009 presentation gave us an array of colours including peach, raspberry, maroon, turquoise, black, nude and gold. The Himalayan carpet prints and tiger printed pieces were very interesting.

My favourite pieces were the 2in1 sheath dresses, which had a top with a plunging neckline appearing to be tucked into a pencil skirt.

Embellishments, although heavy on some pieces, were so beautiful. They cascaded down to the tights, then onto the shoes.

Fur was everywhere from trims on coats, clutch and even fur trimmed heels.


Eva Mendes was in the front row, and she managed to make this Prada Fall 2009 two-tone mustard velvet/tweed dress work.


Jessica Alba opted for a bit more dramatic look with a furry bolero over her brown satin dress.

I’m not crazy about her overall look, but I love her studded Miu Miu clutch.

Who Wore Christian Dior Better? Jessica Alba or Tinsley Mortimer


Jessica Alba was gorgeous in this Christian Dior Spring 2009 knee length empire waist pleated dress, with a lace edged bustier and lace straps which she wore to the Film Independents Spirit Awards last month.

She accessorized with Christian Louboutin nude pumps, and a print clutch.

Socialite Tinsley Mortimer, wore a yellow, shorter version of the dress, when she attended the Frick Collection Young Fellows Ball last week.

She stood out from the other guests not only because of her yellow dress, lilac clutch combo, but also because she was the only guest not to wear a Monique Lhuillier gown to that event.

I much prefer the lilac, so Jessica wins for me, also Tinsley clutch cchoice really put me off her look.

Who Wore RM by Roland Mouret Better? Rachel Weisz or Jessica Alba


Rachel Weisz was the first to wear this black RM by Roland Mouret Resort 2009 dress, which can be worn as a one-shouldered dress, or off-the-shoulder.

Rachel wowed you all when she walked the red carpet at the London Film Festival, for The Brothers Bloom Gala Screening so much, that you voted her Best Dressed Of The Week.

Jessica Alba also wore this dress, when she attended the Vanity Fair Oscar party on Sunday night.

Like Rachel, Jessica wore her dress as a one-shouldered dress, but I didn’t like the way she constructed the neckline, so Rachel wins this for me.

2009 Film Independent Spirit Awards

I love this awards show, as we get so see more a more eclectic and colourful red carpet.

This year the stars didn’t disappoint. Jessica Alba looked so lovely in a stylish lilac Christian Dior Spring 2009 dress, with tan Christian Louboutin Mary Janes.

Her make-up is light, and compliments her dress.

This look is so feminine, I adore her here.

I really like this navy and red striped Michael Kors dress Cameron Diaz is wearing, but – not for the first time – I really don’t think this suits her.

I think it’s way too conservative for her, as she is usually more playful on the red carpet.

Is this the case of a new boyfriend cramping her style? We have seen this before.

And will she please, oh please get those roots done asap.

Lucy Liu opted for a fuschia pink Lanvin Spring 2009 satin dress.

She wore her dress with a clear belt, as not to block the draping effect on her dress.

The look was complete beige Jimmy Choo heels, and a Roger Vivier clutch that matched her dress.

♥

Claire Danes wore a two tone Lanvin Spring 2009 strapless bustier dress, with a gathered skirt.

She decorated her dress with a nude necklace, which was also from the Lanvin Spring 2009 collection.

This is such a sophisticated look for Claire, although I am not sure about the black heels.

Post-pregnancy Michelle Monaghan, continues to rock my world.

She was one of my favourites at this event wearing a Versace Spring 2009 baby blue mini dress, with a bell-shaped skirt, and jeweled strappy sandals.

I expected to see more of this collection on the red carpet other than 3 pieces – January Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow & Michelle – we have seen.

Kerry Washington looks absolutely outstanding in this electric blue Marchesa dress, with an embellished neckline. Although like Claire, I’m not so sure about her shoe choice.

This is a nice Rodarte Spring 2006 dress, but Anne Hathaway is a young girl, who should be experimenting a lot more.

The whole look is too blah. I’m not excited about it at all.

With her last two looks failing to impress, I’m very scared for what she might bring to the Oscars red carpet.

Taraji P. Henson on the other hand continues to impress.

Her Burberry LBD is decorated with embroidered details on the skirt to give it a tiering effect, and this same detail appears on the top of the dress.

She completes her look with black gladiator Pedro Garcia sandals, and a Burberry Prorsum Fall 2008 necklace.

I’m very excited to see what she wears at the Oscars.

Zooey Deschanel adds a black velvet bow to her Lela Rose Spring 2009 shimmering blue dress, which match her eyes.

Her cute clutch was from Moschino, and her heels are Ferragamo.

Michelle Williams wore a simple simple navy, grey and white striped sheath Chloé Resort 2009 dress, with black pumps.

Padma Lakshmi is so incredibly beautiful.

Last night she wore a Giorgio Sant Angelo jersey dress from Decades Inc, which had a white tile pailette detail cascading down the bodice.

I know many of you are not Teri Hatcher fans, but I think she has been having a lot more good days than bad recently.

Her LBD from Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2009 collection with the sheer panels, is very sophisticated, yet sexy. Plus she doesn’t opt for a predictable black shoe, instead she wore a satin champagne Brian Atwood peep-toe heel.

Her pink clutch is Jimmy Choo and her jewels are by Piaget.

Mena Suvari added a multitude of colour to the red carpet, with this Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2009 maxi dress.

She wore her dress with a larger tan belt, which is thinner than the one which appeared on the runway.

She wore Piaget jewels to complete her look.

This is not the best look for Elizabeth Banks. The skirt is fine, but the rest……

I should be thankful that this Azzedine Alaia chocolate brown dress Penelope Cruz wore is not black, but I am still mourning the loss of her fantastic style, to see this as a positive.

Yikes. The coat Rachel Weisz is wearing doesn’t cover up enough of her floral dress.

I love the fearless Sandra Oh on the red carpet. She opting for this fuschia pink tunic Jenni Kayne Resort 2009 dress with black pumps.

Sandra is already on trend for Fall 09, as we saw a lot of this colour at New York Fashion Week.

Look who is back, not surprisingly wearing black. Ellen Page.

Rose Byrne’s white Calvin Klein Spring 2009 dress, is a perfect fit for her.

She keeps the minimalist look going by opting for plain silver pumps and no jewelery.

The shoulder pads on Mary-Kate Olsen’s Balmain dress are too dominate for my liking. It makes her appear to have no neck.

Her beige heels are by Proenza Schouler.

On the plus-side, she looks very healthy.

V-Day LA Luncheon

Charlize Theron has been MIA on the red carpet for a while, so it was nice to see her in a laid back casual look at this event. She wore head to toe black including a LBD, tights and ankle booties.

A make-up free Jessica Alba also opted for all black. I love her short-sleeved black top with black shorts, which she wore with black and white striped heels.

Anne Hathaway broke up the her all black look, with a black Andrew GN Spring 2009 dress which had a gold beaded neckline, and a gold rope belt.

Black pumps complete the look.

Thankfully Kerry Washington did not get the ‘all black memo’ as she arrived looking Spring fresh wearing a white and coral Jason Wu Spring 2009 ensemble, including a striped skirt, an embroidered blouse and a grey blazer.

Social Events Of The Week

Declare Yourself Inauguration Kick-Off Event, Washington

Jessica Alba looked radiant in her gold sleeveless asymmetrical dress.

The style was a bit fussy with the gathered detail on the front. But she tried to pull it all together with a black leather belt.

She paired it with black tights, and accessorized with black pumps, Christian Louboutin Aionoued bow clutch and spectacular multi-coloured stone earrings.

I’m really starting to love this new hair cut.

Hayen Panettiere sparkled in a black Marc Bouwer dress with silver sequined detailing. The dress was backless.

She wore this dress with black YSL platform pumps and a gold clutch.

Australia Week 2009 Black Tie Gala, LA

Rachel Griffiths wore one-shoulder Colette Dinnigan gown. The elegant gown sparkled with black sequins on the bust line.

She completed her look with Cartier jewelry and Manolo Blahnik heels.

Emilie de Raven wore this baby blue halter Moschino gown, which complimented her gorgeous blue eyes. The dress was cinched in at the waist with a black sash.

Melissa George opted for a stunning voluminous black gown, which was nipped in at the waist and had an embellished yoke.

She completed her look with an updo.
