Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Victoria Beckham, Lily Cole, Kate Walsh or Stella McCartney

It’s not unusual for Victoria Beckham to be first when it comes to fashion. She was the first to wear these Stella McCartney ankle zip skinny ombre jeans whilst making her way through Heathrow airport earlier this year.

She wore them with her leather Balmain jacket, Loewe hat, Christian Louboutin’s and white Kelly Travel bag.

Model/actress Lily Cole wore the same jeans with a loose fitting dusky pink top and multi-coloured strappy heels to “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” Photo Call during Cannes Film Festival.

Kate Walsh wore hers with a sparkling Stella McCartney tank top during a photo call at the Monte Carlo TV Festival.

And finally the designer of these beautiful jeans – Stella McCartney – wore hers with a cropped jacket from her Resort 2010 collection to the presentation of her new collection at “The Corner” in Berlin.

This is a tough one, because everyone looks great minus Lily because I really dislike her shoes.

Stella wins this for me, as her look is the most effortless and most chic.

These jeans are available to purchase from Net-A-Porter international for £157.50/€206.50.

“The Ugly Truth” LA Premiere

If I was to write a list of red carpet rules one of them would be to keep the neck bare when wearing a strapless dress, then I see Katherine Heigl’s stunning chunky David Yurman pearls with her Lanvin Fall 2009 beige tulle strapless dress and I instantly ditch the rules.

That is because the yellow and white pearls really add some pizazz to her look and as a result she glows.

Beige pumps and a classic updo complete this perfect look.

Kate Walsh supported her former colleague wearing a cute sleeveless blazer with matching white shorts by Isabella Oliver.

Gold accessories including Moschino Cheap and Chic metallic gold cut out peep toe wedges, a gold clutch and gold bangles complete this summer fresh look.

OK, I think it’s official I’m in love with Venus Williams’ style at the moment.

She is on fire and I hope she progresses to even better looks in the future.

On this occasion the Wimbledon runner up opted for a coral strapless dress with bejeweled sandals and a lavender stone choker.

As great as Serena Williams looked at the ESPY Awards, she really lets herself down here for wearing this plunging black dress without some support.

No bra, no likey.

Jewel lets her green maxi Temperley London dress with an embroidered neckline do all the talking, as the singer opts for a minimal jewelry.

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.

“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.
