Who Wore Valentino Better? Jennifer Nettles or Jessica Szohr

Back in June last year, Jennifer Nettles wore a Valentino Pre-Fall 2011 dress to the 2011 CMT Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee.

The singer paired her leather-and-lace dress with an asymmetrical neckline with black strappy sandals.

Former ‘Gossip Girl‘ star Jessica Szohr wore the same dress to the Valentino Rodeo Drive flagship store opening in Beverly Hills in March.

With her jet-black hair pulled back in a ponytail, she completed her look with dangling earrings, an onyx cocktail ring and black studded Valentino slingbacks.

I prefer the dress with the looser-fitted A-line skirt, so Jessica wins for me.

2011 Met Gala Round-Up

Here is the final round up from the 2011 Met Gala.

Salma Hayek wore a costume Alexander McQueen peach organza rose dress. We have all questioned her McQueen choices in the past, but this type of gown is perfect for her. She accessorized with a McQueen clutch and Gucci jewels.

Margherita Missoni is her own best brand ambassador. She was glowing wearing an ombre Missoni Fall 2011 knit dress with a feathered skirt.

Sofia Vergara wore a Carolina Herrera strapless blossom print faille gown. Like Renee she’s found the perfect designer for her. So refreshing not to see her twins spilling out.

Anna Dello Russo chose a masculine military Alexander McQueen look which included a black duchesse satin tailcoat, white shirt and gold fern embroidered pants.

I love the look, she’s been doing the masculine thing a lot lately, but that Egg on her head is bordering on GaGa terrority. Ridiculous.

Jessica Szohr In Dolce & Gabbana – GQ Pre-SuperBowl XLV Party

It’s been a while since we saw Jessica Szohr on the red carpet.

This weekend she attended the GQ Pre-SuperBowl XLV Party in Dallas, Texas wearing Dolce & Gabbana.

Her sexy Spring 2011 look included a black lace jacket and black lace skirt.

Jessica styled her look with a metallic Bottega Veneta clutch, tan Sergio Rossi heels and a Nicky Hilton studded cocktail ring.

This look to total opposite to her ‘Gossip Girl’ character Vanessa Abrams who loves to wear bright colours. Jessica’s look is cool, chic, dark, moody and sexy.

Runway To Gossip Girl Season 4 Episode 8

On Monday night in the US ‘Gossip Girl’ aired episode 8 of Season 4 titled, “Juliet Doesn’t Live Here Anymore.”

I won’t give the storyline away because I haven’t seen it myself as it airs tonight in the UK, but it looks like the girls are going to a grand ball as they’re all looking very elegant in their gowns.

We’ve already seen pictures of Leighton Meester in Ralph Lauren with a Judith Leiber clutch and Christian Louboutin heels, plus Blake Lively in Zuhair Murad with a Halston clutch.

The additional pictures are of Katie Cassidy and Jessica Szohr.

Katie wears a stunning blue pleated J. Mendel Spring 2010 gown with nude cap sleeves.

Her look is paired with a stunning Ranjana Khan necklace and Carlos Falchi clutch.

We’ve seen this gown worn by Tatiana Blatnik and Vera Farmiga.

Jessica wore a printed Christian Cota Spring 2010 gown with a ruffled neckline. Her gown was paired with a tan Lauren Merkin clutch.

On the runway the J.Mendel is my favourite look, but I’m not crazy about how it looks on Katie as it has too much added to it for such an ethereal gown.

On the ‘real-way’ I just love the Ralph Lauren gown on Leighton. It’s the perfect chic look for the Upper East Side princess.

WWD @ 100 Anniversary Gala

Last night designers a few celebs helped WWD celebrate it’s 100 Anniversary in New York City last night.

Designers Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen arrived in matching black ensembles which predictably took over their petite frames.

They also did that pose where they look joint at the hip. *will never get these girls*

Jessica Szohr added a touch of animal magic to her look by livening up her black jumpsuit with Christian Louboutin ankle boots.

Georgina Chapman was a perfect vision – as always – wearing a Marchesa Fall 2010 dress which makes her look like she’s floating on a very stylish cloud.

Breakthrough Of The Year Awards – Jessica Szohr In Ruby Smallbone

Jessica Szohr looked really sexy at the Breakthrough of the Year Awards.

We’re used to seeing Jessica in a casual red carpet looks.

She thinks nothing of wearing jeans and plaid shirts on the red carpet, but she really made an effort at this event.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress wore a black and grey dress by Australian designer Ruby Smallbone.

Her Spring 2010 dress with geometric detailing was paired with black peep-toe heels.

I really love this mini dress as it does a lot for her by showing off her toned figure.
