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.

Social Events Of The Week

“The Informers” Los Angeles Premiere

I really like Jessica Stroup. She always looks great on the red carpet, and I don’t feel like she’s trying too hard.

Last night she was all zipped up in her Elise Øverland Fall 2009 teal satin mini dress, which she wore with Camilla Skovgaard peep-toe, cut-out booties.

She’s still got it.

Kim Basinger has obviously been drinking out of the same fountain of youth, as Iman and Demi Moore.

The actress wore a simple Hugo Boss black pant suit, but it’s her hair and make-up that wow me.

Grey Gardens LA Premiere

Ali Larter wore a very deep plunging navy embellished Brian Reyes Spring 2009 dress.

I love the dress and matching satin heels, but why the waiter tuxedo jacket?

Jessica Lange looked delightful in a dress with a white crossover top, and a taupe skirt with stunning embellished details.

PaleyFest09 “Dollhouse” Premiere, LA

Eliza Dushku looks delightful in her Moschino Cheap and Chic Spring 2009 lilac sleeveless dress with crystal beading details.

Sexy, yet sophisticated.

The actress completes her look with YSL Tribute sandals.

10th Anniversary Scenarios USA Awards And Gala, New York

Rosario Dawson matches her Bottega Veneta Pre-Fall 2009 maroon belted dress, with large earrings for this colour co-ordinated look.

I wouldn’t have worn the boots, but she makes them work.

“Tyson” Los Angeles Premiere

I’m loving Elise Neal bangs. I’ve always wanted blunt bangs, but I always change my mind once in the stylist chair.

Elise wore her champagne satin tiered embellished dress, under a black satin blazer. She complimented her look with animal print heels.

Alani “Lala” Vazquez wore a short, but very chic Stella McCartney Spring 2009 strapless white dress, which had a draped detail on the skirt.

I love the multi-coloured diamante clutch, but her dress is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. She should have hoisted it up a bit more.

Bergdorf Goodman’s Party for Bottega Veneta, New York

Julianna Moore wore a black asymmetrical dress from Bottega Veneta’s Fall 2009 collection, which had a large ruffle going down one side. Booties and a black clutch from the same collection complete the look.

Rosario Dawson opted for a lighter Spring look, wearing a mellow yellow Bottega Veneta Spring 2009 dress. A metallic clutch and strappy sandals completed the look.

Chanel Iman wore a black leather Bottega Veneta dress, whilst her fellow catwalker Arlenis Sosa, wore the same dress and carried the same clutch walked the Spring 2009 runway show in coincidentally.

13.04.09 In Her Closet

In Jessica Stroup’s Closet – See by Chloé & Chloé


This weekend Jessica Stroup attended the Paleyfest09 90210 event at the Paley Center For Media in LA.

With her brunette wavy hair, she looked gorgeous wearing a cute black See by Chloé cocktail dress.

This beautiful dress features a vintage-inspired scarf tie at the shoulder, while the soft lace bodice and silk taffeta skirt creates a party-ready look.

You can own this dress by purchasing it from Shopbop.com for $535, or Urban Outfitters for £308.

Jessica kept the Chloé theme going, with a pair of Chloé scalloped leather pumps.

The scalloped detailing was heavily featured in the main collection, and really adds character to these peep-toes.

You can purchase them from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $595, or the international site for £318/€370.

The Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style Plaque Unveiling, LA

Anne Hathaway and fashion designer Valentino Garavani seem inseparable that the moment. They attended the plaque unveiling presentation, of Valentino being inducted into the Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style.

Valentino is the 13th fashion leader to receive the honour, joining Manolo Blahnik, Tom Ford and Giorgio Armani.

Anna is radiant. She looks so fresh-faced, I feel like she is about to shoot a cosmetic campaign.

She wore a Valentino Pre-Fall 2009 belted champagne and pink floral satin dress, with a symbolic Valentino red coat, and nude peep-toe Louboutin’s.

Breath-taking.

Parsons Fashion Benefit, New York

Speaking of radiant and fresh faced. Leighton Meester is back on her A game wearing this white Calvin Klein Spring 2009 dress.

Her lilac Balenciaga peep-toes booties are more appeasing to the eye, unlike those Reebok sneakers we saw recently.

Race To Witch Mountain Madrid Premiere

Carla Gugino wore a gorgeous tomato red satin Georges Chakra Couture Fall 2008 dress.

From the front you think it’s just another plain dress, but the back is were the magic happens.

The actress completes her look with Christian Louboutin Bow T Dorcet heels. Taylor Swift wore these in a previous post. Could this be the new ‘it’ shoe?

Origins Kicks-Off The Return To Origins Recycling Program, LA

Jessica Stroup really embodies the Spring time feeling I have been having, wearing an eggshell moire embroidered Brian Reyes Spring 2009 skirt, with a nude low v drop top by the same designer.

Her look was complete with nude Jimmy Choo Corsica strappy sandals.

2009 Pleasure Summit, Turkey

Eva Mendes wore a Moschino Cheap and Chic royal blue silk sleeveless pleated v-neck dress, with ivory heels to complete her look.

When she’s hot, she’s hot.

90210 Season Wrap Party

AnnaLynne McCord brought her A game to this red carpet. It would have been hard not to notice her in this tight pink Dolce & Gabbana dress, with black stitched details, which showed off her perfect body.

Her look was complete with matching pink strappy sandals.

Jessica Lowndes was more sophisticated in her fire engine red dress.

I love the make-up, and the fact that she didn’t hid her freckles.

Her look was complete with gold accessories.

Jessica Stroup opted for a grey one-shoulder tight fitted mini jersey dress, which accentuated her eyes.

A touch of sparkle was added with a gold serpent brooch on the shoulder, and the look was complete with gold sandals.

Shenae Grimes black strapless dress with a ruffled mini skirt, was made more interesting with her gold chain studded belt.

All her accessories were gold and black, included her peep-toes.

Pamella Roland Fall 2009 Front Row


My pictures from the Pamella Roland Fall 2009 show, which I attended yesterday are really bad, so I’m waiting for the professional pictures to come through.

Before the show, the pre-show began when Paris Hilton came from backstage to walk to her seat. The paparazzi and guests of the show swarmed her and her sister. I kinda felt sorry for the other celebs, because none of them received this high level of attention.

Paris was in her element, lapping up the attention and posing wearing a cute Pamella Roland Spring 2009 grey sleeveless dress, with a white collar and tie detail.

You will be happy to know she removed her sunglasses before the show started.


Sister Nicky was similarly unfazzed by all the attention. She wore a red jacket, which had a structured collar, with black pants.


Kellie Pickler caused the second greatest stir in the front row. She has become the darling of fashion week, and for this show she wore a cute red belted dress with a full skirt.

The skirt was detailed with floral embellishments.


Amanda Bynes was much taller than I would have thought, and she looked fabulous wearing a black haltered keyhole dress.

I have been reading your comments about Amanda’s hair, and I think it’s hilarious that you share my pain about her hair.

Back in July 2007, I did a post called The Never Changing Hairstyle Of Amanda Bynes. Cut to 2009, and her hairstyle is still the same.


Jessica Stroup arrived without a coat – brave girl – showing off how fabulous she looked, wearing a navy silk chiffon Pamella Roland Spring 2009 dress, with a ruffled plunging neckline, which she wore with silver peep-toes.

*brrr*


Kristen Bell slipped in wearing a red sheath Pamella Roland Spring 2009 dress, which she wore under her leather jacket.


Katrina Bowden wore the cutest, sun-shiniest mini dress she could find from the Pamella Roland Spring 2009 collection, and it fits her style perfectly.

The strapless dress was embellished with silver crystals, which complimented her heels.


Michelle Trachtenberg quite clearly was not in the mood to play dress up.


I was not in the front row, but the gorgeous Nigel Barker was. Even though I have seen so many celebrities this week, I have not asked for pictures or autographs, as I’m sure it gets really tedious for them.

But when I saw Nigel, I just had to grab a second of his time. He is even more gorgeous in real life and very charming. *Swoon*

He took his mother to the show. You love him more now don’t you? *sighs*
