InStyle Magazine’s Summer Soiree

I don’t think I have ever said this before in reference to Ashlee Simpson, but I LOVE what she is wearing.

Usually her look has a “I Wannabe In The Band” type of vibe to it, but here she channels a very cute, feminine summery look that I just can’t get enough of.

Her strapless shimmering champagne coloured Jill Stuart playsuit is so chic, which she pairs with pearls, a white Dolce & Gabbana clutch and grey Brian Atwood heels.

For me the best dressed at this event.

Katie Cassidy wore a modified Balenciaga leopard print dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

I love the draping detail around the hips defining the waist, with her bold multi-coloured clutch and silver strappy heels. I’m really happy black pumps are not in this picture.

I don’t know who Yvonne Strahovski is, but I knew it only took me 2 seconds to fall in love with her cute ensemble.

Her Camilla & Marc Spring 2008 striped blazer with her ivory skirt and blood red shoes has a Ralph Lauren feel to it.

Love it.

Jessica Stroup shows a bit of her sassy side wearing a shortened black strapless Rachel Roy Fall 2009 dress with lace panels.

She paired her dress with Stella McCartney black heels and a matching Sergio Rossi clutch.

I’ve loving how her bob is constantly evolving. I can barely remember how she looked with longer hair.

Jessica is neck and neck with Ashley Greene as my favourite red carpet newbie this year.

I go back and forth with everyone who wears Herve Leger. I know many of you wish these bandages dresses were burned, but some do look great.

This isn’t one of those times. Eliza Dushku is a busty lady and this type of dress doesn’t flatter.

I preferred this Herve Leger armor-trim dress on the runway with one strap rather than two, but I do love the YSL tribute sandals which complement the dress well.

Eliza also carried a bright colourful clutch.

“Lost” actress Emilie de Ravin has been MIA from the red carpet for a long while, but she makes a spectacular return wearing a beautiful ivory lace Max Azria Fall 2009 mini dress.

The runway dress is styled have more of a tougher edge, but Emile’s fully lined version appears softer although she added a studded belt to prevent her look from being too sickly sweet.

Like Alexa Chung, Cat Deeley is flying the flag for us Brits in the US but her chic style is more to my liking.

Cat wore British brands via her a white crochet Jaeger dress paired with tan Mulberry sandals.

Our English rose glows so beautifully, with clean golden locks.

Jennifer Morrison opted for a strapless orange Sonia Rykiel dress with a folded neckline and a voluminous skirt.

I love the bright colour and the cute braided hairstyle.

She pairs her look with a Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.

Miranda Cosgrove has such an infectious smile it’s hard not to love her.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a Vena Cava Narthex tiered dress.

The brushstroke-print tiers on the bodice and hem adds a touch of colour to the cream sleeveless dress.

Dania Ramirez opted for a white Dolce & Gabbana trademark strapless bustier dress with a eyelet skirt and bright yellow heels.

Krysten Ritter wore red strappy sandals with her midnight blue Proenza Schouler quilted bustier dress.

The dress has a quilted silk charmeuse bustier with perfectly complements the voluminous pleated silk faille skirt.

Sanaa Lathan looked radiant wearing a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 hyacinth print chiffon one-shoulder dress.

Jordana Brewster’s Reem Acra Fall 2009 gold leaf jacquard halter dress with black belt, ensure she stood out amongst everyone else who opted for a more summery look.

Garcelle Beauvais opted for a full-length one-shouldered pale pink dress with a coral floral print.

She paired her dress with gold, a tan clutch and coral hooped earrings.

Maggie Grace is always so graceful.

I love her one-shouldered dress with a Dries van Noten Spring 2009-esqe mosaic print.

I’m really not keen on Shenae Grimes’ make-up, but her navy zipper trimmed Isabel Lu dress is cute.

Her look is paired with Miu Miu heels and a Kotour clutch.

Radha Mitchell wore a floaty floral vintage Cardinali dress and vintage KJL bangle from Decades Inc., paired with a Bottega Veneta clutch.

The white sunglasses and wedges add to the summery look she was going for.

Jessica Lucas wore a beautiful emerald one-shouldered Jay Godfrey Resort 2010 dress with a black waistband.

The “Melrose Place” actress accessorized with black pumps, a black clutch and a Swarovski bracelet.

The fashion roller coaster that is Lynn Collins takes another nose dive.

Although I do like the dress and the bright pink lips, the rest of the look feels alien the dress.

The hair is really granny-ifed and the Jeffrey Campbell Potion Ankle Boots – which are very similar to the Opening Ceremony boots – are very rock chick making this look too busy for me.

CBS, CW And Showtime All-Star Party

My second “Oh No She Didn’t” of the week goes to Jenna Elfman who channeled her inner Charlize Theron, wearing the same gold metallic Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress which Charlize wore to the “The Burning Plain” Paris Premiere back in March.

I like the dress but I don’t feel Jenna did it any justice mostly because she opted out of the black belt which gives the dress more shape.

Jenna’s dress just hangs around her middle like a sack.

Jessica Stroup is probably the only young actress who always seems to get it so right on the red carpet. She’s never faltered.

I adore her cute ensemble which includes a Stella McCartney sleeveless top, Catherine Malandrino black shorts and Stella McCartney gold trim platform pumps.

I’m loving the new bob.  It really suits her.

Annalynne McCord makes it a 3peat for this Alice + Olivia black and white strapless dress.

Amber Tamblyn and Khloe Kardashian have worn this dress already.

This dress is a huge step away from the slinky body-con dresses we are used to seeing Annalynne wear.  I’m not really feeling this look at all on her.

Sophia Bush’s floral dress gives me a warm fuzzy feeling of Autumn day when the leaves are falling off the trees, whilst the sun is shining on a beautiful day.

The whole look has a 40s vibe to it with the hair, the bold red lips and the dress.  Dita would love it.

I do like Shenae Grimes’ pink Camilla & Marc bustier dress, but it’s quite ironic that she fails to fill the dress.

As a result the dress doesn’t really flatter her which is disappointing as the colour is divine on her.

Jennifer Love Hewitt opt for an ice white strapless dress with a tie on the hip, but I’m more drawn to her stunning nude peep-toes with a cute bow detail.

Ashlee Simpson continues to channel her inner rock chick wearing this grey tweed dress with a lot of added leather and chiffon detail which mixes sweet with sassy.

Her look is paired with a black clutch and Balenciaga heels.

Elle Macpherson never met a Herve Leger dress she didn’t like.

This is two events in a row she has opted for a bandage dress.

The CW Network 2009 Upfront

Blake Lively really makes me fall in love with her blue Adam silk double strap playsuit. It’s so cute, and sexy all at the same time.

Leg lengthening nude peep-toes, and a stack of bracelets complete the look.

Any other week she would be up for Best Dressed.

As would Jessica Stroup, in this equally cute and ultra-girly, Brian Reyes spaghetti strapped chiffon dress.

The dress has a layered silk chiffon skirt with frayed edges, and a contrast waist band.

I love her hair loosely pull back, in this summery youthful look.

Sergio Rossi clutch and Dolce & Gabbana champagne peep-toes, complete the look.

I like the long Jil Sander Spring 2009 blazer with shorts combo, but I can’t take Leighton Meester’s two-tone hair.

Is this hair colour for a role she is playing?

Because I refuse to believe she just wanted it this way.

Elle Macpherson shows off that body, which made her so famous, wearing a black strapless pencil dress, from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2009 collection.

So Tyra Banks can tone down her look.

The TV presenter wore a slate grey Marley silk wrap jumpsuit, with a matching necklace, and a contrast elasticated belt.

On trend nude heels completed the look.

I prefer her as a honey blonde. Do you guys like this darker ‘do?

I have always envied Jessica Szohr’s luscious thick hair.

The Gossip Girl actress, wore a blue off-the-shoulder Rebecca Taylor Spring 2009 dress with studded details, which matched with covetable silver sandals.

Va va va voom. AnnaLynne McCord is purring in her Dolce & Gabbana satin bustier dress.

This kind of dress would have surely got her noticed, as it accentuate her femme curves.

She kept it super sexy with strappy sandals.

Taylor Momsen is such a pretty girl, I wish she wore opt for much softer make-up.

She still channeling biker/rock girl chic, wearing a leather look plus a floral Rag & Bone silk tank and strappy sandals.

Ashlee Simpson channels funky secretary chic, with her 2 in 1 black and white combo dress.

A large necklace and black and pink Lanvin patent pumps with pink bow details complete the look.

Alberta Ferretti And C.H.I.P.S. 2009 Spring Luncheon

Jessica Stroup wore a cute white paillette covered Ferretti dress, adding an edge with a black ribbon tied around her neck, and black booties.

Very interesting accents.

Nicky Hilton also added a slight edge to her bohemian Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Aztec paisley dress, with an olive green Matthew Williamson for H&M cropped leather jacket, and snakeskin platform heels.

For a red carpet newbie, Lynn Collins is making a very impressive impact.

I won’t pretend I’m crazy about her shoe choice. A nude heel would have been my preference to compliment the nude layers on her Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti silk chiffon tiered dress.

Marisa Tomei looks like she was having fun at this event, wearing a gorgeous turquoise embroidered Alberta Ferretti pocketed mini dress, with equally gorgeous ivory heels.

Quite frankly, I’m lusting after the whole look.

Angie Harmon wore a flapper style Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 dress.

Her dress had an orange underlay, with a fringed web-like black overlay.

She’s had better appearances on the red carpet. I would’ve liked to seen her in something that had more of a Spring-like feel to it, like the other attendees.

Who Wore Badgley Mischka Better? Jessica Stroup or Eva Longoria


Jessica Stroup attended the Badgley Mischka Fall 2009 show during New York Fashion Week, wearing a white sweet-heart necklined modified version the Pre-Fall 2009 gown, with a feathered skirt, and jeweled bodice.

Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria, also opted for a modified version, when she arrived at the premiere of The Perfect Game during the Guadalajara International Film Festival in Mexico.

Eva’s hair and shoes really let her down, in a cheesy prom queen kinda of way. Jessica’s neater, shorter hemline is more complimentary, and overall the dress is a better style fit, so she wins this for me.
