2009 Monte Carlo Television Festival Closing Ceremony

When I saw Emily Deschanel on red carpet wearing this Gustavo Cadile strapless gown I instantly recognised it, because I tried it on during New York Fashion Week, when I visited the designer at his Manhattan studio.

The outstanding rose tulle gown is from Gustavo Cadile’s Fall 2009 collection. I adore the tiered skirt which make it feel like a princess gown.

I was surprised that Emily wore a black knotted belt with the dress, because the pink bejeweled ribbon was perfect. But either way it works.

I love that she didn’t add too many jewels, or even carry a clutch as this dress stands alone.

I’m so honoured to have tried on this gown, and I can imagine the butterflies she had when she put on this gown.

Kate Walsh showed off her very sassy side in a baby blue Missoni dress, with a thigh high split.

For some reason I’m more in love with her hair. Those curls are so cute and look so bouncy.

Jennifer Love Hewitt arrived with her actor boyfriend Jamie Kennedy looking exquisite wearing a nude gown. She was radiating beauty. I’ve never been so taken by her.

This gown with a risqué plunging neckline more than makes up for the previous secretary chic look.

I don’t know why but I was totally captivated by Spanish actress Marta Torne.

Her porcelain skin, the sexy silhouette of her slate grey strapless ruched bodice gown, and those bold red lips are all perfect. Not a single fault can I find.

Such a quiet elegant beauty, I adore her here.

Lori Loughlin looks amazing again. This time wearing a navy blue haltered gown, with an embellished neckline.

Her look was complete with a gold box clutch which complemented the gold detail on her gown.

Kim Kardashian for me the worst dressed at this event. She did a complete 180 from her previous looks.

I love her hair and make-up, but the Ports 1961 strapless gown is way too gaudy for my liking. The runway version wouldn’t have suited her either.

This is a bit of a step back imo.

Monte Carlo Television Festival

Kim Kardashian’s first look at this festival was a black Lela Rose sleeveless dress with a contrast grosgrain belt and a disc hem.

Her sophisticated look was paired with black Jil Sander heels.

She showed off her womanly curves in an ultra-feminine one-shouldered dusky pink dress for her second look. Nude Louboutin’s completed my favourite look of the three.

Kim brought out the sunshine wearing a flirty Ina Soltani strapless yellow dress with a ruffled bodice, which she also wore with nude Louboutin’s.

You will notice in all of these looks that Kim doesn’t wear any accessories, she shines on her own.  I’m glad to see her return to a more respectable style of dressing after a slight detour to tackyville.

Emily Deschanel attended a photocall  “Bones” wearing a red and white asymmetrical print loose fitting summer dress.

You’ll notice that she’s wearing the same heels which Stella McCartney wore last week in nude.

I love this dress, as it very much reminds me of a vintage dress I have in my closet.

Kate Walsh was there to promote “Private Practice” and she looked radiant, as she posed for photographers, in a light-blue mini dress. The look was completed with nude Christian Louboutin strappy sandals.

Lori Loughlin was there to promote the hit TV series “90210”. She glowed in the sunshine wearing an Alexander McQueen fuschia pink asymmetrical dress.

With the wrong accessories this look could have come off tacky, but Lori wore nude peep-toes and simple silvers accessories.

Jennifer Love Hewitt was promoting “Ghost Whisperer” and opted for a very formal secretary type of look, which goes against the summery looks everyone else was wearing at this event, so this is my least favourite look.

Christian Louboutin Differa sandals complete the look and make their 100 appearance on the red carpet.

03.06.09 Premiere

“The Hangover” LA Premiere

Wowaz.

Heather Graham is smokin’ hot wearing a red corseted Dolce & Gabbana dress. I’m sure the traffic behind her was at a standstill as jaws hit the dashboard.

The actress wore her sexy dress with the same Jimmy Choo Flynn strappy sandals she wore to other event recently, plus a gold metallic purse.

I would have preferred a clutch, but when she looks this hot, who’s looking at the purse?

I really love the colour combination of Kate Walsh’s Stella McCartney Pre-Fall red wool skirt and purple silk sleeveless top. The colours really pop, and she wears her ensemble with a great stance, than the model.

This is what I love to see on the red carpet, someone who’s not afraid of colour.

Kristen Bell looked stunning in a Brian Reyes Fall 2009 belted dress, with a delicate lace overlay.

I always think of Kristen as a tween, but when I see her standing so elegantly in her stunning dress, I’m reminded that she is a gorgeous confident young woman.

As much as I adored her in this dress, her Brian Atwood pumps, Bally striped box clutch and a House of Lavande statement necklace, really perfect the look.

Yes I’m gushing.

It’s back.

The Alexander McQueen ‘Squeeze It’ clutch which Audrina Patridge is so very fond of, is back on the red carpet after missing one event.

The star carried her clutch, whilst wearing a sexy chocolate brown silk Diane von Furstenberg dress, with an Alexander McQueen black patent belt, and YSL Lola heels.

I think Audrina is the only reality TV star to have not worn Trib Two’s.

With her strappy Prada heels, Ashley Olsen wore a black slip dress from her favourite brand Calvin Klein.

As plain as the dress is, it allows her natural gorgeousness to shine through.

Mary-Kate Olsen channels her inner John Lennon, with rose tinted glasses, to evoke a 60s style moment.

I would’ve liked to have seen more of her printed mini dress, but its lost under her black oversized blazer.

She also wears Prada heels, and carries a very interesting fringed bag.

Eva Mendes’ printed maxi dress, feels better suited to a day shopping with her girls at The Grove, but it is gorgeous.

37th Annual FiFi Awards

The FiFi Awards, is fragrance industry’s equivalent to the Oscars, where Paris Hilton was honoured with “Female Celebrity Fragrance of the Year” award last night.

This is the first time in a long time that I love what Paris is wearing.

Out goes the billowing dresses, and jeweled headbands, and in comes this Georges Chakra Fall 2009 Couture purple dress, with draping, navy bows and jewel encrusted details.

She completes the look with her favourite Gina heels.

Who would have thought Queen Latifah and Paris Hilton, would share the same taste in designer?

Queen Latifah befit her regal name, by looking breath-taking wearing a charcoal grey lame dress, from Georges Chakras’ Fall 2009 ready-to-wear collection.

I love the sleeve that drapes over her shoulder, and the smokey eyes.

Along with Paris, she is up for Best Dressed of The Week.

Senior Vice President & Creative Director of Estee Lauder, Aerin Lauder, opted for a blue Lanvin leopard print dress.

This is not an easy look too pull off, but I would have worn it without the belt.

Mary J Blige wore a watercolour print Roberto Cavalli maxi dress, with the signature gold serpent.

Her gold drop, emerald stone earrings, complemented the look perfectly.

Hilary Rhoda wore a beige strapless fitted Jacques Fath dress, with a peplum at the waist, plus an origami pleated detailing trimming the neckline.

As much as I love her dress, I also love her gold chandelier earrings, and her black Jimmy Choo strappy sandals.

Unfortunately Kate Walsh’s look is really not working for me.

Not the lurex pink Hugo Boss dress, nor the hairstyle.

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.
