Social Events Of The Weekend

“Revolutionary Road” London Premiere

Kate Winslet was an absolute knock-out, when she arrived at the premiere of Revolutionary Road wearing the ultimate LBD in London last night.

Her black Narciso Rodriguez was extremely flattering, as the criss-crossed glossy leather top, with the leather strips on the sides of the dress, sculptured her toned body. The keyhole detail flashed us a hint of cleavage, which on some would look a bit tacky, but not on Kate.

Love her. She is the first entrant for Best Dressed of The Week.

NRJ Music Awards 2009, Cannes

Usually when a celebrity breaks up with their partner, their style improves.

Anne Hathaway and Reese Witherspoon immediately spring to mind.

So I wonder why Katy Perry is bucking that trend and looking hideous on the red carpet, wearing an ill-fitting white Dolce & Gabbana suit.

Emporio Armani Menswear Fashion Show, Milan

Kelly Brook arrived at the Emporio Armani Fall 2009 menswear fashion show with her boyfriend Danny Cirpiani.

The couple looked very loved up in their Armani ensembles.

2009 Park City – AXE Fix Club, Utah

Paris Hilton can’t do with a bit of bling, so she matched her diamante hair band with the diamante detail on her black mini dress.

She completed her look with a white shrug.

Aubrey O’Day not surprising wore this Blumarine Fall 2008 leopard print dress to stand out. She strangely wore her dress with orange platform heels.

12.01.09 Best Dressed

2009 Golden Globe Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
What more can be said about the stunning Olivia Wilde, that has not been said already?

She was one of the first to hit the red carpet in her exquisite Reem Acra Bridal Spring 2008 gown.

The gown had an jewel detail on the hip, and a gorgeous ruffled skirt.

Most Dramatic Award
Finally some Versace Spring 2009 on the red carpet.

January Jones was one of the few to bring drama to the red carpet wearing a Versace one-shouldered gown, with gold trim folds for added detail.

Biggest Hair Award
Drew Barrymore was stunning on the red carpet. Her hair was teased into a big style ala Marylin Monroe.

Her grey/blue John Galliano gown hung delicately off her shoulder, as she channeled Old Hollywood.

Best Gown Award
Maggie Gyllenhaal looked charming wearing a blue leopard print Lanvin Spring 2009 asymmetrical gown, which was presented on the runway in a much shorter style.

Best Strapless Gown Award
Jennifer Morrison’s electric blue Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2009 was beautifully complimented with her blue stone Lorraine Schwartz earrings, which were made specially for the dress.

Best Dressed Brit Award
Kate Winslet did us Brits proud, not only in the style stakes wearing this YSL strapless gown. But by also winning the Best Supporting Actress award for The Reader.

She sparkled in Chopard jewels.

The Turn Back Time Award
I don’t know how Demi Moore does it, but she must bottle it, and sell it.

Demi showed us why she is married to a much younger man, when she walked the red carpet wearing this cute pink Christian Dior Spring 2009 haltered gown.

The actress turned back the clock at least 20 years.

Best Black Award
Evan Rachel Wood’s Elie Saab Fall 2006 Couture black tiered gown, was by far the best black dress on the red carpet, as it shimmered as walked.

Again there is not a hit of Dita von Teese.

Best Asymmetrical Dress Award
I am so proud of America Ferrera, because she didn’t wear black, as I was expecting her to.

Instead she opted for this silver asymmetrical Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2009 dress, which was actually presented in black.

I love the gathered detail on the skirt, and the embellished detail on the neckline.

Most Vibrant/Best Red Award
Eva Longoria’s red Reem Acra gown, more than stood out against the red carpet. The actress who is just recovering from a cold, showed no signs of illness as she looked red hot.

She completed her look with a Daniel Swarovski silver clutch.

Most Improved Award
I really love this Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2009 gown on Rumer Willis.

Finally she has found a dress that compliments her hair.

Most Va Va Voom Award
I thought Hayden Panettiere looked outstanding, as she brought out the sex kitten wearing this Gianfranco Ferré Spring 2008 strapless eggplant gown.

This dress may look familiar, and that’s because it’s from the same collection as the dress Jennifer Morrison wore to the People’s Choice Awards.

Best Floral Award
Jenna Fischer looked ethereal in a multi floral print silk chiffon V-neck Zuhair Murad Resort 2009 gown with crystal embellished waist.

She completed her look with Chopard jewels.

Best Curves Award
Salma Hayek wore a figure-hugging Bottega Veneta gown, which shows us that my sexy senorita is back to her beautiful best.

She completes her look with Boucheron jewels.

If It Ain’t Broke Don’t Fix It/Another Strapless Gown Award
Kate Beckinsale is starting to become really predictable.

Yes she has a body to die for, and look fabulous in this J. Mendel gown. But I hope for her next red carpet appearance she wears something other than a figure-hugging strapless gown.

Best Over 40 Award
It not all about the youngsters. Kristin Scott Thomas more than held her own on the red carpet wearing a silk champagne Lanvin gown with sash neck-tie.

Good, But Not Great Award
Angelina Jolie’s shimmering Atelier Versace gown with a thigh-high split is not black – thankfully.

Best Couture Award
Anne Hathaway’s Armani Privé Fall 2006 gown was embroidered with Swarovski crystals. I wanted to be more wowed by her dress, but she does look absolutely stunning.

Best Necklace Award
Beyonce was not going to take any risks tonight, so she returned to her old friend Elie Saab who created this stunning strapless Spring 2008 Couture embroidered gown.

For those of you who watched the red carpet show on E!, you would have noticed that the dress was a little tight around the hips on B.

I really liked Beyonce necklace, which complimented the jeweled detail on the gown.

Best Colour Co-Ordination Award
I love how Christina Applegate complimented her yellow Roberto Cavalli strapless gown with yellow Lorraine Schwartz jewels and yellow diamond clutch.

Best Nude Award
Nude dress and gowns were very popular at this event, but for me Elizabeth Banks’ J. Mendel Spring 2009 ruffled gown, stood out the most.

Kate Winslet For Elle UK February 2009

I must admit when I first saw the February 2009 edition of Elle UK, I had to do a double take, because I thought it was Kate Moss, but it is actually British actress Kate Winslet who graces the cover.

Kate’s latest film is Revolutionary Road, for which she has received a Golden Globe nomination, despite this Kate is very down-to-earth and considers herself pretty average. She even confesses to having cellulite.

On her exercise regime: “I don’t go to the gym because I don’t have time but I do Pilates work out DVDs for 20 minutes or more everyday at home.”

On watching herself on screen: “The thought of me sitting ina room watching myself in Titanic is so funny because that is so not me. I’ve seen it once just after it was made and I’ve never watched it again. I couldn’t. I hate watching myself.

On her and Leonardo DiCaprio: “Leo’s friendship is a major thing in my life. It’s a big relationship. I’ve known him almost twice as long as I’ve know Sam [her husband], but he’s never been a boyfriend, which makes it completely uncomplicated and very special. We met when we were very young and did a this incredible film [Titanic], which changed both our lives, but the best thing to ocme out of it was this friendship. We have grown up together.”

On her sex scenes with DiCaprio in Revolutionary Road, which her husband Sam Mendes directed: “Neither Sam nor Leo seemed the slightest bit bothered. I was like ‘Is it just me who feels a bit werid about this? You know. My friend. My husband.’ But it was just me.”
