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.

You can check out the Anna Sui for Target collection online.

On The Gossip Girl Set With Jessica Szohr Wearing Reem Acra

The stars of Gossip Girl are back on the streets of New York yesterday filming their hit show, and I was gob smacked by how stunning Jessica Szohr looked on set wearing a stunning ivory Reem Acra Spring 2008 gown.

Jessica, who was filming with Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass), looked absolutely stunning as she filmed scenes wearing the delicate chiffon and satin gown with beaded cap sleeves.

It’s an extremely romantic gown, and the elegant updo and bold red lips adds to the overall charm.

I wonder if Chuck was able to keep his hands to himself.

If you are thinking that this gown looks familiar, it’s because Olivia Wilde wore the same gown to the 2008 Emmy Awards.

“Melrose Place” LA Premiere Party

After narrowly missing out on the readers choice Best Dressed vote, Ashlee Simpson arrived at the “Melrose Place” LA Premiere Party this weekend wearing a red and white Elise Øverland Resort 2010 printed mini dress.

The dress was accented with a black waistband and a black trim on the bodice.

To complement these details Ashley wore black peep-toes and carried a black D&G Micol clutch.

I would have like her shoes to be strappy, another than that this is another good look for Ashlee.

*Sighs*

Jessica Stroup is so cute. I always love what she wears and this is no exception.

The “90210” actress opted for a sleeveless Jenni Kayne Fall 2009 silk cobalt blue cowl neck mini dress, which she paired with black Jenni Kayne sandals.

This girl can wear a bin liner and still look great. The colour is fab on her, and I just love the wider belt she wore with this dress.

Jenna Dewan is the least known to me at this event, but she does her best to change that by wearing a ‘look at me’ strapless Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 grey dress with neon stripes.

She admittedly look great in the dress, which she wears with grey strappy sandals.

It’s official. I’m in love with Katie Cassidy.

She wowed me last week wearing Balenciaga, now she looks out-friggin-standing wearing a shimmering navy one-sleeved shoulder padded Brian Lichtenberg Fall 2009 dress.

I HAVE  TO OWN THIS DRESS.

I usually hate anything with one-sleeve, but as my chin is on the floor I’ll make an exception in this case.

The hair, the clutch, the dress, the shoes, the make-up. Everything is perfection. What a way to start the week. She leaves me breathless.

I feel a girl crush coming on.

Oh and no, I don’t think she’s wearing a bra under that dress.

She teamed her dress with Bebe Desiree leather caged sandals & Swarovski clutch.

Jessica Lucas’ gave us plenty of va-va-voom wearing a black leather Ina Soltani Fall 2009 dress.

The leather v-front strapless mini dress has a ruched waist detail which made the look more interesting.

Black strappy sandals completed her look.

Daphne Zuniga in the middle stood out from the trio of original cast members, wearing an electric blue Nicole Miller racerback cocktail dress with black sandals.

Josie Bissett on the left wore a LBD, whilst Laura Leighton on the right opted for a black halter-neck Elizabeth Mason Couture dress with a stand up collar.

“Melrose Place” was my life many years ago – as well as “Degrassi Junior High”.  I was devastated when it was canceled. I hope the new breed do it justice.

On The “Gossip Girl” Set With Leighton Meester & Jessica Szohr Wearing Tibi

Leighton Meester and Jessica Szohr’s character’s couldn’t be more different when it comes to their style.

Leighton character ‘Blair’ is a typical Upper East side princess who wears twin sets and pearls, whilst Jessica’s character ‘Vanessa’ has more of a boho vibe.

What they had in common during filming yesterday were Amy Smilovic’s casually chic Tibi dresses.

Leighton wore a beautiful mustard silk dress with zig zag black contrast beading along the drop waist.

I love how she teams her dress with a black beaded necklace.

This picture was taken between takes as Leighton was seen wearing flip flops for comfort.

Her dress has recently been added to the virtual shelves of Net-A-Porter’s US site for $595, or the Net-A-Porter international site for £550/€608.

Jessica Szohr’s character Vanessa was on set wearing something typically ethnic inspired.

Blair would be caught dead in this contrast print Tibi strapless dress with a bright pink colour-block panel down one side. But it’s just the right look for Vanessa, who teams her dress with tan studded heels.

Her Tibi dress can be purchase from Shopbop for $365.

If you prefer the contrast panel to be blue, you can purchase this from Net-A-Porter US for $365, or Net-A-Porter international for £280/€429.52.

Social Events Of The Week

Ischia Global Film & Music Fest 2009, Italy

Elsa Pataky always seems to be in couture weather it’s Elie Saab or Armani Privé.

On this occasion she wore an open back Armani Privé Spring 2009 dress with the beautiful web-like embroidered detail.

Eva Mendes was the epitome of summer chic wearing a Tibi Fall 2009 belted floral print maxi dress with Samantha Willis jewels and Stuart Weitzman “Alex” crochet espadrilles.

Da Silvano Restaurant, New York

Rihanna was out to lunch in New York where she was spotted showing off her new mohawk.

She’s clipped the sides and back of her head, leaving the top untouched. She rocks it well, but it’s a look I’ll never copy.

Rihanna isn’t shy as she has been wearing very revealing clothing lately.

I think this is the 4th time I’ve seen her bra through the sheer tops she loves to wear.

This time she wore a sheer top over a striped bikini with a pair of skinny ankle zip jeans.

She completed her look with Maison Martin Margiela shoe boots and a Nina Ricci bag.

“Charlotte Russe Fall 2009 Launch Event”

Jessica Szohr is fast becoming a red carpet regular. This time she was wearing a two-tone Charlotte Russe playsuit which showed off her toned legs.

She completed her look with beautiful black strappy sandals, a large statement necklace and a maroon clutch.

Michelle Trachtenberg’s black dress is so so, but I love her Giuseppe Zanotti clutch with multi-coloured stars and her electric blue ankle boots.

I can’t really fault Rumer Willis’ look.

Yes it’s all black and verging on dull, but at least the fit is right and she doesn’t look awkward.

Her look is paired with Christian Louboutin Paquita sandals and a black D&G clutch.

Casio Exilim MOBILE NYC Launch, New York

For once Taylor Momsen isn’t dressed like a Guns n’ Roses groupie, but her eye make-up is too heavy for that cute white dress she is wearing

Stella McCartney Presents New Collection At The Corner Berlin, Germany

Cool and chic as always Stella McCartney presented her new collection in Berlin wearing a Resort 2010 black cropped jacket, a white half tucked in tee and ombre ankle jeans from her own collection.

Anna Paquin channeled her inner geisha girl wearing this black figure-hugging dress Alexander McQueen dress with Jimmy Choo heels and a chic updo.

It’s On With Alexa Chung, New York

What’s with everyone wearing leather this summer?

We first had Chloe Sevigny wearing a leather jumpsuit this week, and now we have Ashley Greene wearing leather shorts.

The “Twilight” actress wore them with her cute floral Escada blouse to the MTV Studios this week.

Her sassy look was complete with sexy strappy sandals and a Gucci Hysteria bag.
