Kate Winslet For Harper’s Bazaar US August 2009

Kate Winslet is very much a girls girl. I don’t think I have ever hear a bad word said against her. Everyone loves her, and what’s not to love. She is beautiful, down-to-earth and refreshing honest.

These traits make her the perfect cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar’s August 2009 issue.

On the newsstand cover – which I prefer to the subscriber cover below – she looks gorgeous wearing a Michael Kors white crepe one-shouldered dress. Inside the issue she talks about her reputation, drugs, her breasts and nudity. Here are some extracts:

On her breasts: “If people are noticing my boobs in a movie and saying they do what real boobs do, then that’s great. I’ll be 34 in October. I can’t keep getting away with it… people have seen enough of my bum and my boobs. I have to put them back.”

“Away We Go” Special New York Screening

Kate Winslet walked red carpet at this screening, in support of her husband Sam Mendes, for his latest movie “Away We Go”.

The Brit Oscar winner opted to wear a gorgeous black Stella McCartney Fall 2009 dress, with vintage lace sheer sleeves, and a ruffled detail around the neckline.

She is the picture of sophistication, as the dress delightfully skims her curves, but the “Croydon facelift” ruins this look for me. Her hair is slicked back too tight for my liking.

Even as I marvel at her fresh-faced glow, I wish she had opted for a simple classy updo.

The look was complete with Louboutins peep-toes, with a white platforms.

“Two and a Half Men”, is one of my favourite TV shows, and I love the character Rose, played by Melanie Lynskey.

I really love her colourful Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2009 asymmetrical top, with a peplum at the waist.

Unfortunately the grey suede ankle strap heels, kill this look for me.

23.02.09 Worst Dressed

2009 Oscars – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed
I am so glad Jessica Biel made this so easy for me.

The white Prada duchesse satin gown, is so incredibly plain and boring – just like Biel.

That draped material didn’t work for me. In some pictures it ballooned out, and just looked ridiculous.

The complete the disaster, Jessica forgot to wash out the mounds of grease in her hair.

Most Predictable Award
No bling, but we get yet ANOTHER mermaid gown from Beyonce Knowles.

Yes it flatters her shape, but could she please play another record.

To be honest I liked this gown for about 10secs, before the camera panned gown. The hem is horrendous.

UPDATE:
You will/should not be surprised that his monstrosity is House of Dereon Couture. Only Tina Knowles could create this hot mess.

Wash Out Award
As much as I love this Elie Saab Spring 2009 Couture gown, the colour is so wrong for the beautifully pale Evan Rachel Wood.

The nude colour totally drains her, and washes her out. I would have loved to have seen her in a striking colour.

Her jewels are by Neil Lane.

Worst Red Award
I love Amy Adams, and I tried to love her Carolina Herrera red strapless gown, but I couldn’t.

Firstly I really dislike the black piping on the bodice, and I really dislike her green, blue and cherry red Fred Leighton necklace with the gown.

I’m 16, Going On 30 Award
Seriously this is TOO much dress for Miley Cyrus.

When will her stylist and her mother get a look right for this girl? Why do they insist on aging her so dramatically.

The Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 Couture gown itself is gorgeous. I love tiered scallop skirt, and embellished belt, but it’s a gown for a woman, not a child.

Most Boring Award
A lot of you said I was too kind to Kate Winslet by putting her on the Best Dressed List at the BAFTA Awards. Looking back I agree.

I did say I would put her on the Worst Dressed list if she opted for another dark colour, so here she is.

The dark colour is not the only problem, I really don’t like that embroidered mesh part on her grey YSL Atelier one-shouldered gown. It serves no purpose, in fact it ruins the dress for me.

Her look is completed with Chopard jewelry.

I Know You Like It, But I Hate It Award
I am sure a lot of you will hate me for adding Amanda Seyfried and her Valentino Spring 2009 Couture gown on the Worst Dressed list.

This gown was better strapless, as it was presented on the runway. The straps ruin the look for me.

Worst Hair & Make-up Award
I don’t even know the colour of Alicia Keys’ dress, because I am so horrified by the brown wig and shocking make-up.

Why, oh why?

Update: Armani Prive gown. Still so upset about the make-up and hair.

De Ju Vu Award
Don’t you feel like you have seen this Dolce & Gabbana mermaid gown a million times before?

We saw something similar on January Jones and Olga Kurylenko, that by now I am so over this look.

De Ju Vu Mark 2 Award
As much as I am a huge fan of Roland Mouret, this modified gown is not to dissimilar to the red Dior dress with the open neckline, which Heidi Klum wore to the Oscars last year.

What Black Again? Award
Not surprised at all that Angelina Jolie is wearing black. Can you believe this is by Elie Saab?

I am so used to seeing his dresses so colourful and embellished. I have never seen his designs look so plain.

She tried to punch it up a little with green Lorraine Schwartz earrings, but that’s not nearly enough.

Runway To "Irish In Film" Awards – Freida Pinto In Missoni


The hottest girl in Hollywood right now, Freida Pinto, again showed us her perfect style, when she attended the Irish In Film Awards pre-Oscars bash.

The beautiful actress wore a strapless yellow, orange and gold printed Missoni Spring 2009 mini dress, which had been shorten from the runway. This modification was right for Freida, unlike Estelle’s Brit Awards modification disaster.

She also replaced the embellished runway sash, with a shimmering sunshiny yellow one.

Her look was completed with a gold clutch, and a pair of blush Christian Louboutin Paquita satin gladiator sandals.


Others at this event included Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard and Abbie Cornish.

I love Kate Winslet, but the constant black is tiring, I am so Jennifer Aniston over it, and I’m worried that she will pick a black dress on Sunday night.

If she does – unless it is outstanding – she will end up on the worst dressed list.

Here she is wearing a Herve Leger LBD, with black pumps.

As elegant as Marion Cotillard looks in her strapless brown dress with white polka dots, her hair leaves a lot to be desired. It really is lacking in volume.

Abbie Cornish also opted for a LDB with a tiered skirt.

All I can say is thank the fashion gods for Freida being at this event, otherwise it would have been a complete wash out.

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.
