The Art of Elysium’s 3rd Annual Gala “Heaven”

This is an incredibly long post, so please click ‘read more…’ below to see the rest of the looks from this amazingly well dressed event.

I was starting to lose hope that I would ever see this amazing Marchesa Fall 2009 dress on the red carpet.

Olivia Wilde has fulfilled my wish by looking drop-dead gorgeous wearing the strapless nude suede dress.

I love those embroidered floral details, the complementary taupe clutch and her nude Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps.

I don’t know much about Amber Heard, but I’m really impressed with her on the red carpet and shocked that she always manages to wear such big name designers.

Last night she looked sensational wearing this red Christian Dior Spring 2010 belted gown with a chiffon bodice and a satin skirt.

Since Charlize Theron has been M.I.A. on the red carpet in a while, I guess John Galliano might have been looking for an interim muse.

It’s not often we see 3 great Dior Spring 2010 looks in the space of 2 days.

Miss Dior herself – Marion Cotillard wore Dior to the Critic’s Choice Awards on Friday, then Chloe Sevigny wore Dior to the NY Times Style Magazine’s Pre-Golden Globe Awards Party on Saturday.

It’s always a pleasure to see Camilla Belle on the red carpet.

The actress wore a grey Valentino Spring 2010 dress with a satin bow detail on the hip.

I love the way the cape and skirt fan out.  It would’ve been amazing to watch this dress in motion.

I’m not sure about those stunning heels with the dress, but the heels are divine on their own.

On Friday I was worried that after Apphia Michael wore Viktor & Rolf to the Wallpaper Design Awards, that we would only get to see these pieces from this Spring 2010 collection inside magazines.

Anna Paquin delights us by wearing a strapless pink tulle dress with exaggerated hips.

She also blows my theory that only one of each look was ever made for this collection, as hers is pink to the runway’s grey and blue.

An Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch, Boucheron diamond studs, a Tom Binns necklace and black gladiator heels complete her look.Read More…

“You Know You Want It” Publication Celebration

I’m split when it comes to Leighton Meester wearing this Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 ensemble.

I love the fact that she tried to make the look her own, but I also loved how this look was presented on the runway.

Her grey top and matching Balenciaga heels give this look a more grown up feel, whereas runway look has a cute girlie feel to it.

Of course I wouldn’t expect Leighton to wear this look with the stockings and clogs.

Yet I remain torn.

What are your feelings on this look?

When it comes to Blake Lively many of your comments contain the question “boobs or legs?”

On this occasion she put both away, but I’m sure many of you will notice that her bra is peeking out of her shirt.

Her look also consisted of a black Nonoo Lyons Fall 2009 tailcoat, what appear to be black shorts and Stella McCartney thigh-high perforated boots from the Fall 2009 collection.

Both girls sported different looks, but I think I prefer Blake’s as I feel like she put this look together herself.

Even when she wears an edgier designer Michelle Trachtenberg doesn’t falter from her prim lady-like look wearing a navy Rag & Bone Spring 2010 dress, with a silk bow tied around her waist.

Tights, black patent pumps, a Chanel clutch complete her look.

Just once I’d like to see her try an edgier look.

Jessica Szohr showed off her sexy Alice + Olivia LBD with mesh back to full effect.

A gold Hunting Season python clutch and black patent Alejandro Ingelmo heels complete the look.

Jessica Szohr For Teen Vogue February 2010

Jessica Szhor is the last main member of the “Gossip Girl” cast to have a solo Teen Vogue cover.

Her February 2010 cover sees her wearing one of my favourite looks from the BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010 collection. I also loved the red Versus safety-pin dress below.

The self-proclaimed “jeans and tee shirt girl” is refreshingly down-to-earth in her interview.

She opens up about her modest attitude towards fame, her relationship with Ed Westwick, and her big screen debut this April in the spring-break thriller “Piranha 3-D.”

Click here for information on the February cover and behind the scenes footage from the shoot.

On her Gossip Girl co-stars and double-dating with them: “I’ve heard horror stories form other actors about egos, people who don’t get along, but we’re all friends. There are people from this job who will be in my life for a very, very long time… Sometimes we double-date with Penn [Badgley] and Blake [Lively], or Leighton [Meester] and Sebastian [Stan]. We all hang out.”

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

Jessica Szohr wore the blue print version of this Thakoon Spring 2010 dress to this prestigious event.

I’m glad she picked the darker colour, as I would love to see the lighter print saved for the Spring.

Strappy booties and tamed sleek straight hair complete this look.

What? No ankle boots?

Alexa Chung looks really cute wearing a red Jason Wu Spring 2010 dress with a ruffled neckline.

I love those bold red lips.  It’s very rare that we see her wearing make-up.

Ballet flats complete the look, but I’m also missing the black runway waist belt.

Cassie looked really good on this occasion.

The singer donned an off-the-shoulder black and gold striped Brian Reyes draped dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

The dress was paired with open-toe booties.

Georgina Chapman wore a black Marchesa Fall 2009 dress, which has an intricate embroidered detail all over.

The designer paired her dress with the same Christian Louboutin for Marchesa lace ankle boots as the runway model, plus a black clutch from her Spring 2010 collection.

Coco Rocha looked fierce in wearing this Rodarte Spring 2009 black and white dress on the runway, but Karen Elson softens the look by adding black pumps and bouncy curls.

Many of you hated Nicole Kidman’s last L’Wren Scott dress at the CMA’s.

On this occasion she wore a stunning ivory Lanvin tulle lace gown.

Her boobs aren’t squashed, she not too washed out, the black sash tied to the waist is adorably accented with a white rose.

Love it or hate it?

14.10.09 Premiere

“The Stepfather” New York Premiere

Amber Heard walked the red carpet looking outstanding wearing a vintage Oscar de la Renta black gown.

The sheer gown with a lace underlay and lace cap sleeves shimmers from the embroidered embellishments all over the gown.

Her hair, make-up and Dana David jewelry are perfection.

The ribbon tied around her waist was a nice finishing touch.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Jessica Szohr arrived wearing a grey Proenza Schouler coat dress paired with black jeans and snake skin peep-toes.

Not quite as ready carpet ready I would have hoped, but I guess because she’s not in the movie she didn’t feel the need to dress up.

Taylor Momsen went for a gothic look teaming a lace minidress, patterned tights and a crucifix with heavy eye make-up.

I don’t hate the look as she doesn’t look too disheveled, but she could so wear this look to a Halloween party.

Maybe Blake Lively is like me and she hates horror movies because she wasn’t seen on the red carpet, but she was seen with her boyfriend Penn Badgley at the after party.

The gorgeous actress wore a Smythe tweed slouchy boyfriend blazer paired with a white tee, black leather pants and Giuseppe Zanotti studded pumps.

Anna Sui For Target Pop-Up Store Launch Party

Known for her mix of vintage glamour, art and culturally inspired-design, Anna Sui developed her Target collection inspired by the distinct looks of “Gossip Girl” characters Serena van der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf, Jenny Humphrey and Vanessa Abrams.

You may remember I did a post on the looks a few months ago.

Today Target opened a limited-time-only pop-up store in celebration of the Anna Sui for Target collection launch to give New Yorkers the opportunity to shop the entire collection before it hits stores nationwide on September 13th.

Emma Stone was one of the many guests at the launch party last night.

She wore a white lace accented with a blue bow from Blair Waldorf’s collection with uninspiring black pumps.

Blake Lively was there to support the collection, but wasn’t actually wearing the collection.

She wore a cute multi-coloured tiered dress with the same Christian Louboutin studded heels Alexandra Burke wore earlier this week, plus a stack of bangles.

Fresh faced and gorgeous as always.

Jessica Szohr gave us her best diva poses as she walked the red carpet wearing a cropped top and black jeans, with some questionable animal print heels.

Michelle Trachtenberg opted for a bright floral dress which she partially covered with a leather jacket

OMG. Taylor Momsen gets scarier and scarier for me.

The T-shirt and high-waisted skirt aren’t the issue.

It’s the hair and make-up.
