Exhibition Fetish by David Lynch & Christian Louboutin


Dasha Zhukova, the co-founder of fashion label Kova & T, and the new Editor-in-Chief of Pop magazine, looked stunning, as usual, at this event.

The sultry brunette wore a white and lilac Rodarte Spring 2009 halter neck dress, with metallic Louboutin’s.

I must say I prefer the look with the cropped leather jacket below, but she does have the style and grace to pull off such an overpowering dress.


Unlike the last time Julia Restoin-Roitfeld wore a Balmain mini dress, she opted out of wearing tights, but that’s probably because this Spring 2009 dress is longer.

Like in Lucy Liu’s Vogue China editorial, Julia didn’t wear the runway belt, which quite frankly goes against the dress.

I love the hot pink colour, the embellishments between the criss-cross details, and the sexy silhouette this dress gives her, but I really dislike the Miu Miu heels.

They feel so clumsy with this outstanding dress. The dress deserved better.


Boutique owner Aizel Trudel, wore that stunning green sequined Balmain knock-out dress we first saw on Jennifer Connelly at the He’s Just Not That Into You LA premiere.

Thankfully her tights are sheer. Opaque tights would have killed this look.

Topshop/Topman VIP Dinner

Geez how many launch parties does one store opening need?

On Tuesday Topshop had the celebrity packed preview dinner, and again last night it appears the dinner was for the A listers.

You don’t get more A list than Jennifer Lopez, who arrived looking dazzling wearing a white strapless L’Wren Scott Spring 2009 jacquard dress.

Her look was complete with those Christian Louboutin multi buckle sandals, she seems to be obsessed with, and bangs that look like they need an extra inch taken off them.

Kate Moss, who makes her Topshop US debut today, wore her favourite black YSL tux jacket, a tiered minidress, black tights and YSL Trib Two heels.

Rosario Dawson was radiant in a raspberry asymmetric Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 dress, which had a beautiful gold embellished panel, complimenting her gold Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toes.

Wearing head-to-toe black, Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s look included a black a fringed Topshop dress, with a leather jacket and studded heels.

Anna Wintour and daughter Bee Shaffer were there to support the British brand.

Bee wore a short white Alexander Wang jersey dress, with *shudders* tights and black heels, whilst her mother opted for her favourite Prada Spring 2009 snake print dress, with a maroon velvet Prada Fall 2009 coat.

Jennifer Hudson had to sing for her supper, wearing a Topshop silver sequined tunic, latex black leggings and red peep-toes.

The multi awards winning singer, entertained the guests including Marc Jacobs, and James Blunt, with her hit singles.

2009 American Museum Of Natural History’s Museum Dance


A gorgeous Jessica Alba stepped out on the red carpet last night, looking divine wearing a burnt-orange and black sequined one-shouldered Narciso Rodriguez Resort 2009 dress.

I adore the orange against her skin.

Although I’m not a fan of tights on the red carpet, it works with the colour-blocking on her dress.

Jessica added a lot of pizazz to her look with sparkling statement chandelier earrings, and a dazzling embellished Roger Vivier clutch.


Dani Stahl’s black Versace Spring 2009 strapless mini dress had multiple zip details, and a ruffled hemline.

The NYLON Style Director’s look was complete with fuchsia pink Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy platform pumps.

The gold Very Galaxy heels may be an obvious choice, but I would have preferred them to go with her black and gold look.


Now this is a look that really should have been worn without tights.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s aqua Balmain strapless mini dress, with criss-cross embellishments is very much muted with the tights don’t you think?


Leigh Lezark wore a stunning body-contouring black lace Chanel Resort 2009 dress, which has a nude underlay to give a sheer illusion.

The DJ/model opted to wear her dress without the patent black belt which was presented on the runway. A small box clutch, and black peep-toes complete the look.


Fuchsia pink is very much the favoured colour by Tinsley Mortimer at the moment, as this is the second time in a row, and third time within 2 months, she has worn the stand out colour.

On this occasion she wore a Christian Dior Spring 2009 mini strapless dress, with matching toe and nail polish.

Her look was complete with another one of her self designed Samantha Thavasa clutches.

The yellow and pink, goes a lot better than the previous green and pink.


Milla Jovovich looked like a sexy seductress in her rich, velvet Prada dress.

I love her elegance, the side-sweeping curls and the jewels. This is a perfect look for her.

More From The Front Row

Rodarte

Kristen Dunst was front row at the Rodarte Fall 2009 show looking fantastic wearing a Rodarte Fall 2008 multi-coloured knit dress.

I always love what the Mulleavy sisters produce, I just wish we would see more of their edgy designs on the red carpet.

Calvin Klein

I seriously did not recognise Kate Beckinsale until I saw the caption under her name.

Looking at her hair, I will guess these are clip on bangs. I hope she ditches them before the Oscars.

I appreciate that Kate has tried to shake up her look a bit in this leather dress, but it just feels a bit false.

Eva Mendes wears head-to-toe black. What more can I say?

Erin Wasson + RVCA

Leighton Meester wore a Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2009 ensemble consisting of a gold sequinned top, and a teal snake print skirt, with navy tights and bronze heels.

Like Kate, Leighton as opted for bangs, and like Kate, I don’t think it quite works.

3.1 Phillip Lim

I expected to see more of Becki Newton at fashion week. She arrived at Phillip Lim’s show wearing a taupe sequinned dress, from the designers Spring 2009 collection.

Badgley Mischka

Kellie Pickler continues to shine in the front row. Her she wears a stunning ombre Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with a black sash at the waist.

I have been praising Kellie a lot, but she really should have packed another pair of shoes, she has been wearing those Trib Two’s all week. Even I brought 10 pairs.

Jessica Stroup wore a white strapless Badgley Mischka Spring 2009 collection, with silver slingbacks.

Her dress was presented as a gown, but I equally love this shorten version, as it’s young, fun and suits her personality.

Kim Kardashian wore an black asymmetrical dress, with black Louboutin’s. Another very sophisticated look for Kim.

Anna Sui

Jessica Szhor wore a cute lace dress with black booties.

She as naturally -enviable- thick hair, so I am perplexed about her need for extensions.

Taylor Momsen just tries too hard. What is so wrong with being 15 years old? Why is she trying to act way older than her young years?

I feel like getting a pack of baby wipes, and taking all that eye-liner off her face.

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld Party

Supermodels Natalia Vodianova and Gisele Bundchen struck a pose together.

With her long leather gloves Natalia wore a crystal embellished Emporio Armani Spring 2009 blazer.

Gisele was conservative by comparison, wearing an all black ensemble.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld attended her brother’s event wearing a cute navy and gold polka dotted Christian Dior Spring 2009 dress with a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 purse.

amfAR New York Gala For Fall 2009 Fashion Week

She’s back. Not only from having a baby, but Michelle Monaghan is back on top form giving us edgy red carpet fashion, that Jennifer Connelly would be proud of.

With her hair pulled back Michelle wore a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 ensemble which consisted of long sleeved orange dress, with patchwork and sequined detail along one side of the dress, and layers of tulle, to give her skirt some volume.

I know a lot of you hate head-to-toe runway looks, but she would have been hard pressed to find a shoe outside of the Vuitton Spring 2009 collection, that would have done this dress justice. A plain black sandal, just wouldn’t do.

This look won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I love it.

OMG, I can’t take this any more.

Taylor Momsen needs to decide who she wants to be.

She is wearing heavy rock chick make-up and a choppy banged ‘do, with a ethereal Marchesa Fall 2008 gown.

She needs to decide on which direct she want to go, because this is all very confusing for me.

Eliza Dushku wore an electrifying nude and silver asymmetrical Kaufman Franco Fall 2008 gown.

Her look is flawless.

Mary J Blige kept her look simple wearing a black Donna Karan gown, which had an asymmetrical neckline.

The credit crunch looks to be affecting everyone, as Julia Restoin-Roitfeld wears the same mini black embellished Balmain Spring 2009 dress, she wore earlier this week to a Vogue Pre-BAFTA party.

Or unlike me, she likes to travel very light.

Social Events Of The Week

2009 MusiCares “Person Of The Year” Gala, LA

Camilla Belle arrived at this event glowing with pure gorgeousity, wearing a short magenta Marchesa dress.

The mini dress had a multitude of beautiful embellishments all over the top half of the dress, and a satin skirt which kicks out at the back.

My number 2 girl crush completed the look with a Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch, and silver peep-toes.

AMPAS’ Scientific And Technical Awards Dinner, LA

I really wanted to love this gorgeous Oscar de la Renta strapless gown, but it’s Jessica Biel who ruins this for me.

This could be in on a mannequin for all the life she is putting into this gown.

2009 Writers Guild Awards, LA

Kate Walsh was one of the presenters at this event, and she looked so very harming wearing a black strapless Missoni Spring 2009 embellished gown.

Mena Suvari wore a Missoni look very similar to this, but hers was a jumpsuit.

“He’s Just Not That Into You” Australian Premiere

Ginnifer Goodwin braved the rain to attend this premiere wearing a lime green Brian Reyes Spring 2009 dress, with a rise and fall hem, and a matching croc belt.

She completed her look with black sandals.

I was loving the longer locks from the LA premiere. I’m not loving the crop so much.

The Reader Berlin Film Festival Premiere

This Lanvin tiered dress Kate Winslet chose for this premiere was perfectly pretty, but I am dying for her to get back to her colourful red carpet dresses.

At the moment it’s black, after black, after black with no wow-factor.

I hope she doesn’t wear black at the Oscars. I might just lose it if she does.

CBS’s The Early Show, New York

To promotes her new movie He’s Just Not Into You on CBS’s The Early Show, Jennifer Connelly looked very chic in a Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 ensemble, with Christian Louboutin Mary Jane heels.

Vogue Pre-BAFTA Party

Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s mini black embellished Balmain Spring 2009 dress, is dangerously close to giving her a wardrobe malfunction.

Claudia Schiffer doesn’t seem to have made an effort for this event.

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

Whilst Isla Fisher posed for photographers outside the David Letterman show, she wore a pretty white Zac Posen cap sleeve dress.

She gave her look an edge by wearing a clunky silver statement necklace, and Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy heels.

“The Private Lives of Pippa Lee” Photocall – Berlin Film Festival

Blake Lively is not only bland in New York, but also bland in Berlin.

Why did she just stop trying?

What is she wearing? Well Vena Cava of course, with Moschino Mary Janes.
