6th Annual New Yorkers For Children Spring Dinner Dance


Diane Kruger was the Best Dressed at this event wearing a Marchesa Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

She’s beautiful, but the dress is exquisite. I love the feathered flower details cascading down the shoulder, and on the skirt of this lilac tulle draped dress.

I love how her hair is pulled back, so we get to see the stunning details on her dress.

The actress completes her look with Fendi bow-front peep-toes, and an Alexander McQueen box clutch.

This is the first Runway to Red Carpet I’ve done using my own runway picture. I took the picture of the model when I attended the Marchesa Fall 2009 presentation back in February during New York Fashion Week.


There was a time when Emmy Rossum was forever the prom-queen, but this delicate baby blue Christian Dior Resort 2009 gown is simply perfect for the occasion.

The breath-taking tiered gown, with an embellished waist band is so ethereal, so dreamy, and so magical.

Again I’m loving the hair pulled back with a single braid, and the icy accessories compliment the gown so well.


I don’t know what I am lusting over more. Joy Bryant’s Zac Posen Fall 2009 floaty floral dress, or her metallic ankle strap heels from the same collection.

Does this woman ever have a day off looking fabulous? This is just so easy for her, and she’s still not wearing any make-up on the red carpet.


Spanish supermodel Eugenia Silva sparkled in her golden sequined Giorgio Armani Spring 2009 gown.

When you are this beautiful, you don’t need many accessories, just a gorgeous dress, and a megawatt smile.


The only watchable thing about The City is Olivia Palermo, and her bitchy evil ways. What I can’t bare to look at, is her in this Zac Posen gown.

Talk about unflattering. There are so many dresses that would have worked from the Zac Posen Spring 2009 collection, but she picked a dress which makes her look like a kid playing dress up in mummy’s clothes.


Socialite Poppy Delevigne wore a taupe flapper style Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 dress, which has also been worn by Shenae Grimes and Mischa Barton.

Poppy’s version is modified from the runway, with a plunging-neckline making it much sexier.

Her look was completed with a leather biker jacket, and a pair of lavender Jimmy Choo satin diamante platform sandals.


Rachel Roy looks chic in a coral long-sleeved dress, which of course is her own design.

I just love how those turquoise earrings pop.


OK, the red hair was cute at first, but I am wishing Coco Rocha’s would return to her dark roots. I really dislike the disheveled way she is styled here.

I’m equally not enthused about her black and white geometric print Zac Posen Spring 2009 dress. It’s not an easy dress to pull off, and I think Coco fails terribly.


I’m not against fur like the stole Drew Barrymore wore yesterday, but when it looks like an animals tail, like Maggie Rizer’s, it gives me the creeps.

What I don’t understand is why the stole in the first instance? It’s wrapped around Maggie in the place where the most detail of this Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2008 gown is.


Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos looked delightful in this one-shouldered lavender print Emanuel Ungaro Resort 2009 gown.

Who Wore Matthew Williamson Better? Joy Bryant or Becki Newton


Joy Bryant took a rare night off wearing Missoni, to wear this cute strapless dress, when she attended the Matthew Williamson New York store opening party during New York Fashion Week.

Joy teamed her dress with a cropped black cardigan, tights and black boots, whilst accessorizing with a black clutch, and a large statement necklace.

Ugly Betty actress Becki Newton opted for the same dress at the screening for I Love You, Man last month.

Silver bracelets, and matching silver strappy sandals completed the look.

Joy mutes the look with all the black accessories, so Becki wins for me.

Joy Bryant – Missoni’s Unofficial Brand Ambassador


We all have a brand we favour. If I could afford it, mine would be Giambattista Valli and Lanvin.

Charlize Theron’s is Dior, Renee Zellweger’s is Carolina Herrera and Victoria Beckham’s is her own collection.

These I would term ‘official brand ambassador’s’.


Joy Bryant loves Missoni. There’s hardly an event she attends – and there are many – in which she doesn’t wear Missoni.

When I met Joy at the Marchesa Fall 2009 presentation, I asked her why she had a particular love for Missoni.

Is she due to be announced as the face of the brand?

She told me it’s simply because the clothes fit her in terms of her style, and she feels very comfortable when she wears their pieces, and that’s most important for her.

I then went onto inform her that several of us hate her for wearing no make-up on the red carpet, and still looked outstanding beautiful. She started laughing. I guess she sensed I was joking.

I wasn’t. It’s just not fair.

Vogue Celebrates The All New 2009 BMW 7 Series

Michelle Monaghan is head-to-toe flawless, wearing a silver asymmetrical Calvin Klein Spring 2009 dress, which she wears with silver square toe pumps.

The most interesting feature of this dress, was the large boxy fold detail going across the skirt.

She is on fire at the moment.

New York Fashion Week wouldn’t be New York Fashion Week with out Joy Bryant in or around the tents.

The model/actress wore a silver strapless metallic Missoni Spring 2009 strapless jumpsuit to this event.

The jumpsuit had an embroidered band around the waist, which she wore without make-up, a large brown clutch and hooped earrings.

Consistently gorgeous as always.

Helena Christensen opted for eggplant pointy pumps, to work with the embroidered details on her off-the-shoulder Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2008 dress.

The details on her black satin dress are exquisite.

Mary Alice Stephenson wears exactly the same Thakoon Spring 2009 dress which Tilda Swinton wore to the opening ceremony of the Berlin Film Festival.

Of course the major differences are the colour and the length.

I absolutely adore this dress, and I hope to find it in Harrods, Selfridges or Harvey Nicks very soon.

Mary Alice looks fantastic in this dress, she really sold it to me.

Runway regular Chanel Iman wore a strapless teal taffeta top, with a short black skirt which has a touch of the teal taffetta on the hem.

She’s even more beautiful without make-up. Life’s just not fair.

Arlenis Sosa is in her 2nd season, so I don’t know if she still classifies as a newbie on the model scene, but she has learnt very quickly that the model’s off-duty designer of choice is Alexander Wang.

The model wore a strapless dress with a black silk bodice, and a aqua blue and cerulean blue contoured coiled skirt from Alexander Wang’s Spring 2009 collection.

The black blazer is also part of any model’s uniform, but I wish she hadn’t worn this outstanding dress.

I am not a fan of tights on the red carpet, but in this case Irina Pantaeva’s ivory tights really brings this look together.

Her ivory embroidered Vivienne Tam Fall 2008 dress, is quite simply a work of art.

Who Wore Missoni Better? Leona Lewis or Joy Bryant


Leona Lewis arrives at Nelson Mandela 90th birthday dinner in London last year.

She wore a beautiful strapless pink Missoni gown accentuated with a gold belt. As usual her look was simply beautiful and effortless.

Joy Bryant wore the same strapless dress in yellow, when she arrived at the Art of Elysium Gala in LA last month.

Joy also kept her look simple, but accessorized with a champagne coloured clutch, and a gold bracelet.

I adored this dress in pink, and the gold accent gives this dress more shape, so Leona wins this for me.

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.
