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.
