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.

Social Events Of The Week

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

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.

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*

More From The Front Row

Alice + Olivia

Paris Hilton showed off her very long legs wearing a LWD with a embellished bodice, and a multi-layered skirt

She completed her look with silver sparkling heels, and a faux-fur shrug.

Nicky Hilton opted for head-t0-toe black.

I love Kim Kardashian’s white waistcoat and pants set, but I don’t like the hair.

This look is so tailored, that a sleek ponytail or bun, would have worked better for me.

The Hilton sisters were in black and white, so were the Kardashian’s with Khloe being the one to faded to black.

I am loving Kristen Bell’s look. I just got a pair of tapered black trousers like this from H&M, so I think I may steal this look for tomorrow.

Adrienne Bailon looks adorable wearing a pink Alice + Olivia strapless ruffle bib dress. She gave her cutesy look an edge with a biker jacket, and the celebrity uniform shoe – the YSL Trib Two’s.

Tracy Reese

A fresh faced Paris Hilton arrived at this show wearing a red velvet dress, with a lush jacket.

I love this jacket, especially the puffy shoulders.

Nicky paired her leather jacket with a white dress.

This is an adorable LWD from Tracy Reese’s Spring 2009 collection, but again Kim Kardashian’s hair is bothering me.

Kellie Pickler wore a peachy halter with skin-tight jeans. She looked fabulous here, and even better at the Pamella Roland show which I saw her at today, but more on that later.

Jill Stuart

Kristen Bell opted for a gorgeous summery floral strapless dress, with a grey cardigan.

Michelle Trachtenberg wore a grey Jill Stuart Resort 2009 halter neck dress, with a cute bow on the hip.

Jessica Stroup opted for a white floaty dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

Amanda Bynes is wearing a stunning teal dress with a tiered skirt, but she really needs to work on her angles, that pose is so off.

Herve Leger Fall 2009



At the Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2009, I witness models falling on the runway. As funny as it may appear, it really is an uncomfortable experience. The whole of the Promenade took a sharp intake of breathe, as the models fell, then got up and continued to walk the runway.

You would think that bandage dresses don’t have anywhere else to go, but Max Azria had many ideas.

Most of the bandage dresses were updated with square shoulders, which gave them an 80s feel, and made me think of the Balmain Spring 2009 collection.

The rosette details of the previous Fall collection, were replace with leather and metallic panel detailing.

The plunging dress was the style most used, but there were also halters, criss cross halters, square neck and one-shouldered dresses.

My favourites were the black eyelash fringed dress, purely because of the way it shimmered down the runway, and the silver embellished dress with the square shoulders.


It was way too far away from the celebs to see them up close, as the place was packed, but Lucy Liu was very much in the spotlight. The camera crews went crazy for the A list star, which is not surprising as she looked hot in a black Herve Leger bandage dress.


Sophia Bush, The Queen of Fall 2008 Fashion Week was absent from the Spring 2009 shows, so I was happy to see her in what was her second show of the week.

She looked gorgeous wearing a striped grey Herve Leger dress.


Michelle Trachtenberg carried a big large red clutch, with her grey tie-dyed Herve Leger dress.


January Jones opted for a nice brightly coloured Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 mini dress, with a black leather jacket.


Jessica Stroup opted for a lime green Herve Leger dress, with a keyhole detail.


Lily Collins wore a coral and black striped Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 dress.


Of course Joy Bryant was there wearing a black Herve Leger dress.
