A|X and ELLE Magazine’s “Disco Glam” Soiree!

Last week celebs arrived at A|X Armani Exchange on Robertson Boulevard for “Disco Glam,” an evening of high-style decadence hosted by A|X, ELLE Magazine and Joe Zee, ELLE’s Creative Director.

Each star was of course decked out in A|X.

AnnaLynne McCord wore a grey vest top paired with white A|X shredded jeans.

Coral peep-toes and neon yellow bracelets which matched her toe nail polish completed her look.

Kelly Osbourne wore the cutest look wearing an A|X cut-out bubble dress with an adorable colourful floral print.

An A|X cropped knit denim jacket and an edgy studded bag completed the look.

I like that her comical purple hair worked well with her dress.

Brenda Song wore A|X romper which she teamed with workman like boots and a A|X satin bomber jacket.

Keri Hilson also opted for a A|X romper, but her strapless romper had a more interesting ikat print.

She also teamed her look with the same A|X satin bomber jacket as Brenda.

Whilst everyone was going for Spring casual looks, Eva Amurri decided to go for something sexier.

Her A|X banded shimmering dress hugged her in all the right places and she added a eye-popping pink clutch to complete her look.

Katharine McPhee wore a colourful A|X silk halter romper with ankle strap heels.

I’m I the only one missing her as a blonde?

I like all these looks.

Each girl found a look to suit their individual style.

More From “A Night Of Fashion & Technology With LG Mobile Phones” Red Carpet

Katharine McPhee was my favourite on this red carpet from this group, as I can totally see myself wearing this look.

The singer wore an Alice + Olivia taupe embellished tank with Alice + Olivia Anders safari pants.

January Jones wore a white Alice + Olivia sheath dress with draping on the hip with white strappy Jerome Rousseau sandals.

Vanessa Hudgens opted for a cute Tibi strapless mini dress from the Spring 2010 collection, with an amazing pair of multi-coloured Jimmy Choo ‘Zuma’ sandals.

Layered Irit Design silver chain necklaces completed her look.

I wasn’t at all excited about what Anna Kendrick wore, but her accessories made up for it.

She wore Jimmy Choo ‘Zena’ sandals and carried the much coveted Emilio Pucci Marquise bag.

Jessica Stroup also wore a white dress.

Her was a draped one shoulder Notte by Marchesa dress with a ruffled shoulder detail.

A Jimmy Choo ‘Mini Carolina’ clutch and those clunky Casadei 3504 triple platform pumps completed her look.

Like Anna, Gabrielle Union opted for an all black look which included a Helmut Lang dress, a Yaya leather jacket and Alexander McQueen cut-out zippers & skull booties.

Runway To The Pix Morning Show – Katharine McPhee In 3.1 Phillip Lim

Katharine McPhee is in full on promo mode as she continues to promote her new album “Unbroken”.

This week she was at “The Pix Morning Show” in New York where she performed her new single “Keep Drivin'”.

Her look is constantly changing.

She went from a very sophisticated Marchesa look on Conan O’Brien’s late night show, to a more laid back look for this morning show.

Her ensemble included ankle boots, patterned tights, a blue mini skirt and a 3.1 Phillip Lim ‘OK’ hand printed tee.

The look has a weird mish-mash of colours that surprisingly doesn’t offend me.

I was hoping stars would jump off the ankle boot trend in 2010, but I guess it’s here to stay for a while.

The stylish statement making tee was one of the many hand printed tees in the 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2010 collection.

This tee is available to purchase from Browns Fashion and Matches Fashion.com.

Runway To The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien – Katharine McPhee In Marchesa

Slowly but surely Katharine’s McPhee’s blonde ‘do is growing on me.

Last week on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” the former American Idol contestant perform her new single “Had it All”.

She looked gorgeous commanding the stage wearing a very chic Marchesa Fall 2009 black ensemble.

The look consisted of a plunging sculptured black jacket with a cut-out star shoulder detail, paired with narrow tuxedo pants.

I love her added detail of that stunning jeweled belt.

It really adds a lot of pizazz to her look, making me love her look over the runway.

Black boots and a two-tone diamond bracelet complete the look.

This has to be one of my favourite looks from Katharine.

Social Events Of The Week

“A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s” Benefit, New York

Whilst trying to keep up with Fashion Week, LeeAnn sent me a note to tell me to make sure I looked at the Dries van Noten Spring 2010 collection.

I’m glad she did because I instantly fell in love with the ethnic prints and the one-sleeved blazers.

I often wondered who would be the first to wear this collection, and that honour went to Julianne Moore.

She looked fabulous in this hard to pull off ensemble.

Her ethnic print wrap dress was paired with a black blazer trimmed with a white strip to complete this unusually chic look.

Granted it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love it.

Wow.

Katharine McPhee blows me away wearing a Marchesa Fall 2009 one shoulder sculpted dress.

I’m even loving the hair with this look.

Either I’m coming down with something or Katharine just hit her first home run.

BDOTW contender.

Alexa Chung opted for a cheap yet chic Topshop studded one-shoulder dress paired with booties.

She arrived wearing a questionable leopard print coat.

‘Late Show With David Letterman’, New York

My first reaction was that I didn’t like Ashley Greene in this Bottega Veneta Resort 2010 striped suit, but after so many great red carpet dresses this look feels refreshing.

It also shows that both Ashley and her stylist are thinking outside the box, and not playing it safe.

My main problem is actually the striped shirt, because the suit is not so bad.

I think I would’ve loved this look if the shirt was a solid colour, or if Ashley had worn the same suit Penelope Cruz wore back in July.

London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, London

Anna Friel loves Antonio Berardi as she has worn his pieces many times before.

Not so many times that she needs an intervention like Leona Lewis does from Vivienne Westwood, but enough to know she appreciates his stunning designs.

The textured dress had an asymmetrical chiffon detail that moved beautifully on the runway.

Black pumps complete the look.

Christmas Illuminations Launch On The Champs-Elysees, Paris

Just last week I was complaining that we haven’t seen enough of Balenciaga’s Fall 2009 collection on the red carpet, and here we have Charlotte Gainsbourg upping the count to make 3 following Carine Roitfeld and Salma Hayek.

The actress arrived at this event wearing one of the printed plunging blouses paired with the lace bandeau, leather pants and peep-toe heels.

Aching cool as always.

“Brothers” New York Screening

For some reason I just can’t fall in love with Natalie Portman wearing this cute Jason Wu Spring 2010 strapless mini dress.

The dress has all the ingredients to make Natalie shine: the ruffles, the colour, the length and the contrasting waist belt, but it gets no love from me and I can’t figure out why.

The actress paired her dress with Aldo purple heels.

Emma Roberts opted for a Miu Miu Resort 2010 summery dress brought down with thick tights.

Navyboot Store Opening, Germany

Monica Cruz hasn’t yet met a Herve Leger bandaged dress she didn’t like.

This is 3 in a row.

Before Cheryl Cole, Cat Deeley was the nations sweetheart.

The TV presenter arrived at this event wearing Givenchy Holly strappy leather heels with a Preen Matt Lightening dress.

If you are thinking the dress looks a bit awkward, that’s because the thick strap on Cat’s right shoulder – as we are looking at it – should be on her left shoulder.

Regardless she still looks fabulous.

2009 Glamour Women of the Year Awards

Regular readers will know that I’m all about the drama.

The more dramatic the dress, the more I fall in love which is why I’m salivating over Rihanna’s Stéphane Rolland Spring 2009 Couture gown.

I expected Rihanna to walk red carpet wearing a Balmain Spring 2010 dress with cut-out details in the hips, so this was a very pleasant surprise.

The white Stéphane Rolland mermaid shaped gown had a pleated detail on the front which swirled around the bodice, before exploding all over the skirt.

This will be a love it or hate it dress. What say you?

Before I fell for Cate Blanchett, it was all about Catherine Zeta Jones. She was my first girl crush.

I had such admiration for her as she held her own on the red carpet amongst the Hollywood major players.

We haven’t seen much of her lately, but walking the red carpet at this event last night she proved that she hasn’t lost any of her sparkle.

CJZ looked outstanding wearing a navy blue Gustavo Cadile’s Resort 2010 lurex gown.

I loved cut, it flatters her so well. I also love how the gown shimmers.

Welcome back Mrs Jones-Douglas, we missed you.

From one ageless beauty to another.

Iman – as usual – looked OUT-Friggin-Standing.

It’s not easy to follow the gorgeous Karlie Kloss because she totally owns everything she wears on the runway.

But when you’re Iman, that doesn’t matter.

The uber model walked the red carpet wearing a pink Jason Wu Spring 2010 feathered confection that is totally delightful.

I love the neon green waistband and her matchy matchy runway platform heels.

She totally stands out as one of the best on this red carpet.

Never take a day of Iman….I BEG you.

Some of you have expressed your confusion as to why Kerry Washington receives so much praise for her red carpet choices.

Come on guys, looks at how amazing she looks wearing this Fendi Spring 2010 blush pink lace floor-length dress.

She looks simply elegant, the colour complements her skin-tone, she accessorized well with silver stunning jewels and a Christian Louboutin snake skin print clutch.

Her look is totally effortless.

What’s not to love?

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection still proves to be the most worn collection by celebrities this year.

Liya Kebede, joins Stella McCartney and Jessica Simpson who have both worn this coat/dress.

It’s not just celebrities who have fallen for Stella’s Resort collection.

Glamour magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive walked the red carpet with SVP & Publishing Director Bill Wackermann wearing the same Resort 2010 dress we’ve seen on Frieda Pinto.

It was no surprise that Stella McCartney was honoured at this event.

The designer was of course wearing self designed pieces which all worked well together.

Stella tends to wear a lot of black, so this pop of colour is really refreshing.

Serena Williams is getting the hand of this red carpet thing as she is radiant at this event wearing a red asymmetrical Pamella Roland gown.

I think she has looked her best yet after her stunning Gucci look a few weeks ago.

Yes she looks muscular, but there’s nothing she can do about that.

I would love to say I have finally embraced Katharine McPhee’s platinum blonde ‘do, but I continue to struggle with it.

Hair aside, I totally in love with her BODYAMR peacock blue jersey gown.

The gown shows off her figure, whilst the black patent leather trim and open back shows off Katharine’s sexy side.

The singer/actress accessorized with a black leather Perrin Paris 1893 Riva Pochette oversize clutch.

Maria Shriver looked fab wearing a black lace strapless Monique Lhuillier gown.

Amy Poehler glittered in a gold Stella McCartney cocktail dress.
