Who Wore Vivienne Westwood Better? Marion Cotillard or Jessica Stroup

Marion Cotillard attended the premiere of ‘Public Enemies’ in London’s Leicester Square wearing a red satin Vivienne Westwood strapless bustier dress.

Her hair was elegantly styled into a beautiful quiff, whilst a black Stella McCartney Fall 2009 embossed faux leather clutch and black peep-toes completed the look.

90210’s actress Jessica Stroup was front row with Rihanna at Vivienne Westwood Spring 2010 show in Paris wearing the same dress.

Marion wins for me because I didn’t like how limp the bodice looked, or how overly creased Jessica’s dress was, nor the purple Brian Atwood Lola pumps she opted to wear with this dress.

Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

Karl Lagerfeld

This is one of my favourite look of Paris Fashion Week, even if Katy Perry is slightly too busty for this Karl Lagerfeld Fall 2009 dress.

I love the structure, the dark taupe colour and the way the dress falls back over her shoulders.

Her look was paired with ankle booties and a Karl Lagerfeld Spring 2009 bag, which has the designers face printed on the front.

Rihanna surprisingly opted for a subtle look wearing all black.

Her look was paired with leather gloves and Christian Louboutin lace pumps.

Lanvin

Janet Jackson looked very sophisticated wearing a black Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress with a ruffled detail on one shoulder.

Janet is officially the Sophia Bush of Fashion Week.

Hussein Chalayan

This is my favourite look from Rihanna so far at Paris Fashion Week.

This grey Hussein Chalayan Fall 2009 has an edge without going over the top, even with those thigh-high boots.

I hope she wears more from this designer in the future.

Givenchy

Many of you will be spitting fire that Rihanna is wearing Givenchy Couture, but at least she didn’t make it look comical.

Her black velvet Couture Fall 2009 jacket was paired with a simple LBD and black ankle boots.

Leigh Lezark opted for a Givenchy Resort 2010 look which included black pants, paired with a studded silk cowl-neck sleeveless top and a studded leather vest.

She really did pick the best look to suit her rock and roll style.

Sonia Rykiel

I’ve always loved this Sonia Rykiel Fall 2009 sparkling dress, and I’m so glad to see how cute yet sexy it looks on Katy Perry.

She wore her dress with a pair of Christian Louboutin pigalle’s.

Maison Martin Margiela

Michael Jackson gave us the glove, now Rihanna is trying to give us the Long sleeved glove.

I don’t think her Maison Martin Margiela white long sleeved glove will have the same impact, but she makes it work for what it is.

The disappointing thing was that her dress was so sheer, you could see her nipple ring and thong in some pictures.

Jean Paul Gaultier

Oh Dita von Teese.

Perfection, poise, sophistication and class just oozes from your every pore.

From the top of your head, to the tips of your bustier right down to your Louboutin’s.  You’re probably the only one really deserving to be front row at Paris Fashion Week.

Only you can bring the magic to this Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 Couture dress like no one else could.

J’Adore Dita.  J’Adore.

Rihanna opted for a criss cross  jacket which showed off her satin bra.

Leather pants and Christian Louboutin Ni toi ni moi blue suede boots completed this crazy look.

Katy Perry was more demure wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 black halter dress paired with a pigalle’s and a Chanel quilted bag.

Vivienne Westwood

Rihanna seems to not like wearing much clothes these days.

Here she opted for a Vivienne Westwood Fall 2009 black oversized blazer, which covered her bra and panties.

Thigh-high tan boot completed this “I got dress in a hurry” look.

Jessica Stroup being at Paris Fashion Week is exciting in that it shows she has a lot of fashion potential.

But like Blake Lively before her, she totally wrecks her opportunity by looking a complete mess in the front row.

Her Vivienne Westwood red strapless dress is horribly creased and terribly ill-fitting, plus her Brian Atwood Lola Suede pumps don’t work with her dress.

I hope she has time to redeem herself before she flies back to the US.

Christian Dior

Dita von Teese looks HAWT wearing a Christian Dior leather skirt suit.

If it looks very familiar, that’s because she wore a black wool version to the Wonderbra Party Edition Launch in London recently.

She teams her dress with grey metallic heels and a Christian Dior Resort 2010 leopard print bag.

Carine Roitfeld finally wore something besides her YSL vintage dress and Alaia heels for a nice change.

This time she opted for an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 grey suit, paired with a grey sweater.

I love the positioning of the arm holes on this jacket.

Wang Lei opted for a simple Dior Pre-Fall 2009 grey dress with a neck tie, which is very similar to the grey skirt suit which was presented on the runway.

Rihanna tries to do Dita, but comes off looking quite ridiculous.

She also carried a bag from the Christian Dior Resort 2010 collection, and paired her dress with Christian Louboutin Studded Pigalle Pumps.

This is the worst look of the week.

7th Annual Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party

Katie Cassidy was the only one who really impressed me at this event.

Jessica Stroup’s ‘Best Red Carpet Newcomber of 2009’ title is being strongly contested by this girl.

Katie was by far the best dress of the night wearing a watermelon Paule Ka Spring 2009 skirt with tulip bubble details, which she paired with a purple bustier trimmed with lace.

As always the pumps don’t really work for me, but everything else – including her Louis Vuitton Motard satin clutch – is perfection.

Noot Seear opted for an edgier/laidback look wearing a Phi Fall 2009 leather skirt with an asymmetrical exposed zipper and a white tank.

I really dislike the shoes with this look.

Editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue Amy Astley, arrived at this D&G sponsored party wearing a grape D&G Fall 2009 top with voluminous sleeves, paired with navy pants.

Kelly Osbourne’s D&G black satin dress was covered with black and white shamrock appliqués on the sleeves to make the dress more interesting.

“Dancing With the Stars” is paying off. She looks amazing.

Victoria Justice looks so grown up, but not too old in her poppy red BCBG Max Azria sleeveless shift dress.

The dress is covered with hundreds of red paillette’s which matches her ruby lips.

Naturi Naughton didn’t go all out this time.

Instead wearing a simple one-shouldered jersey dress, but add a bit of drama to her look opting for a large jeweled belt.

Chelsea Staub’s canary yellow dress would have stood out on the red carpet.

I love the gold detailed neckline on her BCBG Max Azria dress.

I love Miranda Cosgrove’s floaty ribbon print D&G dress.

It’s nice, but not too cutesy.

It very much suits her style and personality.

I feel a bit disappointed by AnnaLynne McCord’s look.

I expected her to be in the same league as Katie, but I’m really unimpressed by this look.

Jessica Lowndes wore a cute strapless dress with a sequined bodice plus a black and white skirt.

I feel like I see this look on Jessica quite a bit.  I love her to try something new.

Lily Collins opted for a black D&G strapless dress.

Selena Gomez wore a silky black and grey ensemble.

Ashley Tisdale wore a Kate Moss for Topshop Trophy studded dress, which draped low enough to expose her bra through the sheer part of the dress.

Her dress was paired with Christian Louboutin snake skin heels.

Jesscia Stroup opted for a black BCBG Max Azria jumpsuit paired with a green clutch and black open-toe booties.

The Best From The Front Row @ New York Fashion Week

Thakoon

Ciara was easily one of my favourites at Fashion Week.

She looked so beautiful wearing a Thakoon wool crepe shift dress which had a contrast black chiffon lining and trim, paired with Louboutin pumps.

Donna Karan

Milla Jovovich’s striped Donna Karan Resort 2009 dress is so chic paired with silver pumps.

Altuzarra

I guess Altuzarra weren’t loaning out clothes for their star guests because Leighton Meester wore an eggplant Emilio de la Morena Fall 2009 dress with Proenza Schouler lace-up ankle boots…

…whilst Rachel McAdams wore a navy and white striped Boy by Band of Outsiders Spring 2010 skirt with a black top.

Charlotte Ronson

Jessica Stroup wore a flirty floral Charlotte Ronson Spring 2010 strapless dress which is so exclusive it wasn’t even seen in the Spring 2010 presentation.

She paired her dress with snake-skin strappy sandals.

Marc Jacobs

Lady GaGa wears the same Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 black cap sleeved dress embellished with jeweled stones, which Miss Piggy wore recently.

I wonder who the winner of that WWIB poll will be?

Tommy Hilfiger

I just love this red dress which Taylor Swift pairs with Stuart Weitzman black bow heels.

So vibrant.

Preen

Becki Newton wore a Preen Mixed Mono dress under a black blazer.

I would’ve loved to have seen this dress without the blazer to see more of its multi-print panel design.

Proenza Schouler

Leighton Meester doesn’t look to happy in her Proenza Schouler Resort 2010 ensemble and I don’t blame her.

Max Azria

Lucy Liu was elegant and classy as always wearing a cream fitted Max Azria dress.

Maggie Q’s Max Azria vibrant yellow dress really pops on her.

I love how she brings this strapless draped dress to life.

25.08.09 Premiere

“Extract” LA Premiere

“Extract” is a comedy that stars Jason Bateman, Mila Kunis, and Ben Affleck, which is about the struggles one man has to run an extract company – sounds hilarious.

Star of the movie Mila Kunis walked the red carpet wearing a Matthew Williamson printed brocade dress from the designers Fall 2009 collection, which I added to my favourites this week.

The cream, grey and mint green brocade shimmering dress has a pleated wrap-over sweetheart neckline, with a playful print.

A loose updo, nude heels and a stack of silver bracelets worn further up the arm completed the look.

Jessica Stroup who walks the red carpet with such style and grace, as if she’s been doing it for years, hit another high note wearing a gold and black metallic Notte by Marchesa Fall 2009 t-shirt dress with Emporio Armani black suede zipper booties accented with a gold trim.

This is a cute look without being too matchy-matchy.

“Melrose Place” LA Premiere Party

After narrowly missing out on the readers choice Best Dressed vote, Ashlee Simpson arrived at the “Melrose Place” LA Premiere Party this weekend wearing a red and white Elise Øverland Resort 2010 printed mini dress.

The dress was accented with a black waistband and a black trim on the bodice.

To complement these details Ashley wore black peep-toes and carried a black D&G Micol clutch.

I would have like her shoes to be strappy, another than that this is another good look for Ashlee.

*Sighs*

Jessica Stroup is so cute. I always love what she wears and this is no exception.

The “90210” actress opted for a sleeveless Jenni Kayne Fall 2009 silk cobalt blue cowl neck mini dress, which she paired with black Jenni Kayne sandals.

This girl can wear a bin liner and still look great. The colour is fab on her, and I just love the wider belt she wore with this dress.

Jenna Dewan is the least known to me at this event, but she does her best to change that by wearing a ‘look at me’ strapless Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 grey dress with neon stripes.

She admittedly look great in the dress, which she wears with grey strappy sandals.

It’s official. I’m in love with Katie Cassidy.

She wowed me last week wearing Balenciaga, now she looks out-friggin-standing wearing a shimmering navy one-sleeved shoulder padded Brian Lichtenberg Fall 2009 dress.

I HAVE  TO OWN THIS DRESS.

I usually hate anything with one-sleeve, but as my chin is on the floor I’ll make an exception in this case.

The hair, the clutch, the dress, the shoes, the make-up. Everything is perfection. What a way to start the week. She leaves me breathless.

I feel a girl crush coming on.

Oh and no, I don’t think she’s wearing a bra under that dress.

She teamed her dress with Bebe Desiree leather caged sandals & Swarovski clutch.

Jessica Lucas’ gave us plenty of va-va-voom wearing a black leather Ina Soltani Fall 2009 dress.

The leather v-front strapless mini dress has a ruched waist detail which made the look more interesting.

Black strappy sandals completed her look.

Daphne Zuniga in the middle stood out from the trio of original cast members, wearing an electric blue Nicole Miller racerback cocktail dress with black sandals.

Josie Bissett on the left wore a LBD, whilst Laura Leighton on the right opted for a black halter-neck Elizabeth Mason Couture dress with a stand up collar.

“Melrose Place” was my life many years ago – as well as “Degrassi Junior High”.  I was devastated when it was canceled. I hope the new breed do it justice.
