Katharine McPhee In SportMax – NBC Universal All-Star Party

Katharine McPhee attended the NBC Universal All-Star Party on Friday evening in Pasadena, CA.

The former ‘American Idol’ contestant-turned-actress wore a black SportMax ankle-length dress with black leather and stud embellishments, matched with nude suede Christian Louboutin pumps.

While the dress itself is fine, with black studs adding a nice edge to the LBD, the look is let down by the shoes.

I would venture to say that almost any other shoes would look better than these conservative suede pumps.

Ankle straps + ankle-length dress certainly does not help.

A fun, bright shoe plus a more intentional stack of bangles could have helped this look out.

Overly messy hair and a pale lippie finish the look.

Katharine McPhee In Alice + Olivia – “Shark Night 3D” Press Preview

It’s been a very long while since we last saw Katharine McPhee on the red carpet.

The singer is currently at Comic-Con 2011 in San Diego, California where she attended the “Shark Night 3D” press preview.

I love her cute Alice + Olivia Pre-Fall 2011 look.

It has all the young fun elements of an Alice + Olivia look,  but it also looks very sophisticated at the same time.

A nude Alice + Olivia smocked cuff blouse was paired with a black Alice And Olivia ‘Bernadette’ lace skirt which has iridescent black sequin embellishments, a scalloped hem, and a nude lining.

Katharine’s glowing tan, glossy brunette locks and nude Louboutin’s perfected this look.

Katharine McPhee In Marc Bouwer – QVC Red Carpet Style Party

Katharine McPhee opted for a stand out look for the QVC Red Carpet Style Party which was held in LA recently.

The singer grab attention wearing a Marc Bouwer Spring 2011 gown.

Her stunning red gown with a plunging neckline and bold shoulders was paired with nude pumps.

Sexy sandals, bold red lips and smoky eyes would’ve had me falling in head over heels in love with this look.

Who Wore Marchesa Better? Anne Hathaway or Katharine McPhee

Anne Hathaway looked stunning wearing a sapphire Marchesa feathered cocktail dress to the “Valentine’s Day” LA Premiere back in February.

The actress accessorized her dress with Garrard by Georgina Chapman diamond feather earrings and a Roger Viver black jewel encrusted clutch.

Katharine McPhee wore the same dress this month when she performed on ‘The CBS ‘Early Show’ in New York City.

I love how Katharine’s version is less tame than Anne’s dress and I also prefer Katharine’s strappy nude sandals, so she wins for me.

Who Wore Armani Exchange Better? Katharine McPhee or Kelly Bensimon

Katharine McPhee attended the A|X Armani Exchange and ELLE Magazine’s “Disco Glam” Soiree! which was held in LA back in May.

The singer who had recently returned back to her natural darker roots at this point, wore an Armani Exchange silk printed romper with brown ankle strap heels.

Last week Kelly Bensimon wore the same romper to the “Grown Ups” New York Premiere.

The “The Real Housewives of New York City” star paired her $130 romper with a strange rope belt and gold peep-toes.

As much as I’m confused about Kelly belt, I prefer her footwear so she wins for me.
