Pamella Roland Fall 2009 Front Row


My pictures from the Pamella Roland Fall 2009 show, which I attended yesterday are really bad, so I’m waiting for the professional pictures to come through.

Before the show, the pre-show began when Paris Hilton came from backstage to walk to her seat. The paparazzi and guests of the show swarmed her and her sister. I kinda felt sorry for the other celebs, because none of them received this high level of attention.

Paris was in her element, lapping up the attention and posing wearing a cute Pamella Roland Spring 2009 grey sleeveless dress, with a white collar and tie detail.

You will be happy to know she removed her sunglasses before the show started.


Sister Nicky was similarly unfazzed by all the attention. She wore a red jacket, which had a structured collar, with black pants.


Kellie Pickler caused the second greatest stir in the front row. She has become the darling of fashion week, and for this show she wore a cute red belted dress with a full skirt.

The skirt was detailed with floral embellishments.


Amanda Bynes was much taller than I would have thought, and she looked fabulous wearing a black haltered keyhole dress.

I have been reading your comments about Amanda’s hair, and I think it’s hilarious that you share my pain about her hair.

Back in July 2007, I did a post called The Never Changing Hairstyle Of Amanda Bynes. Cut to 2009, and her hairstyle is still the same.


Jessica Stroup arrived without a coat – brave girl – showing off how fabulous she looked, wearing a navy silk chiffon Pamella Roland Spring 2009 dress, with a ruffled plunging neckline, which she wore with silver peep-toes.

*brrr*


Kristen Bell slipped in wearing a red sheath Pamella Roland Spring 2009 dress, which she wore under her leather jacket.


Katrina Bowden wore the cutest, sun-shiniest mini dress she could find from the Pamella Roland Spring 2009 collection, and it fits her style perfectly.

The strapless dress was embellished with silver crystals, which complimented her heels.


Michelle Trachtenberg quite clearly was not in the mood to play dress up.


I was not in the front row, but the gorgeous Nigel Barker was. Even though I have seen so many celebrities this week, I have not asked for pictures or autographs, as I’m sure it gets really tedious for them.

But when I saw Nigel, I just had to grab a second of his time. He is even more gorgeous in real life and very charming. *Swoon*

He took his mother to the show. You love him more now don’t you? *sighs*

More From The Front Row

Alice + Olivia

Paris Hilton showed off her very long legs wearing a LWD with a embellished bodice, and a multi-layered skirt

She completed her look with silver sparkling heels, and a faux-fur shrug.

Nicky Hilton opted for head-t0-toe black.

I love Kim Kardashian’s white waistcoat and pants set, but I don’t like the hair.

This look is so tailored, that a sleek ponytail or bun, would have worked better for me.

The Hilton sisters were in black and white, so were the Kardashian’s with Khloe being the one to faded to black.

I am loving Kristen Bell’s look. I just got a pair of tapered black trousers like this from H&M, so I think I may steal this look for tomorrow.

Adrienne Bailon looks adorable wearing a pink Alice + Olivia strapless ruffle bib dress. She gave her cutesy look an edge with a biker jacket, and the celebrity uniform shoe – the YSL Trib Two’s.

Tracy Reese

A fresh faced Paris Hilton arrived at this show wearing a red velvet dress, with a lush jacket.

I love this jacket, especially the puffy shoulders.

Nicky paired her leather jacket with a white dress.

This is an adorable LWD from Tracy Reese’s Spring 2009 collection, but again Kim Kardashian’s hair is bothering me.

Kellie Pickler wore a peachy halter with skin-tight jeans. She looked fabulous here, and even better at the Pamella Roland show which I saw her at today, but more on that later.

Jill Stuart

Kristen Bell opted for a gorgeous summery floral strapless dress, with a grey cardigan.

Michelle Trachtenberg wore a grey Jill Stuart Resort 2009 halter neck dress, with a cute bow on the hip.

Jessica Stroup opted for a white floaty dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

Amanda Bynes is wearing a stunning teal dress with a tiered skirt, but she really needs to work on her angles, that pose is so off.

New York Week Front Row

Lela Rose

Kellie Pickler started off very slow this Fashion Week, but she has now got into her stride and is looking fabulous.

Her best look of the week so far, came at the Lela Rose show, were she wore a taffeta teal Lela Rose Spring 2009 dress.

The detail on the bodice is exquisite.

Jennifer Love Hewitt paired a gold Lela Rose neckline embellished dress, with a navy cardi.

Her cute look was completed with a pair of nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Brittany Snow looked cute in her Lela Rose Spring 2009 ensemble. I love the detail on the skirt, and the collar on the haltered top.

Diane Von Furstenberg

Heidi Klum’s multi-coloured striped shimmering Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2009 dress, which she paired with a large striped belt was gorgeous, but I am so tired of YSL Trib Two’s worn with everything.

Zoe Saldana opted for a white Diane von Furstenberg Pre-Fall 2009 dress with a watercolour floral print. Her silver heels were outstanding.

I would have expected a brighter colour from Katharine McPhee, but she opted for a black and white Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2009 tunic dress.

Donna Karan

Mary Alice Stephenson wore a LBD, but made it more interesting with a large statement necklace, a snake skin clutch and a fur collared coat.

Molly Sims looked stunning wearing a black one-shoulder Donna Karan dress with a gold statement necklace and a black Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

Preen

Roisin Murphy wore a sexy Preen Spring 2009 LBD, with a funky ‘do, then she pores cold water over the whole look by wearing a cardigan.

Reem Acra

Sophia Bush wore a rich two-toned purple Reem Acra dress, from the Fall 2008 collection, which were worn with YSL Trib Two’s.

Lily Collins opted for a lace frock, with gold heels.

Farah Angsana Fall 2009





Farah Angsana was the first of 3 shows I attended today. It was a 9am start, but I was glad to be awoken by this Fall 2009 collection of stunning pieces.

I expected to see fabulous gowns and couture designs, but I was absolutely blown away by what I saw.

The tailoring and attention to detail was exquisite, from the embroidery to the embellishments, which I really appreciated seeing the show live.

The colour palette consisted of golds, bright reds, purples and silvery blues.

I loved the poncho’s which were embellished with either with feathers or intricate silver embroidery. The collars were also decorated with either feathered or fur.

My pictures of the Swarovski embellished bodices really do not do Farah’s work justice, as they were spectacular. That red gown has to make the red carpet.

I hope Kellie Pickler, who was in the front row, was paying particular attention to the red carpet gowns. Everyone was more breath-taking the last. My favourite was the black, gold and red strapless gown, with a skirt that was inspired by dragon scales.

This was a truly magnificent collection, and I can’t wait to see them on the red carpet.


I will guess the Kellie Pickler has been reading my blog, because the ghostly make-up has disappeared, and today she was looking more like her usual beautiful self.

She wore a stunning navy blue strapless dress, with dual button detailing. She wore her dress with YSL Trib Two’s.

I also attended the Carolina Herrera show (♥♥) and the Carlos Miele show (♥♥) which I will blog about when I get back tonight.

Edition By Georges Chakra Fall 2009



I was lucky enough to attend Georges Chakra’s first RTW presention, and I was instantly struck by how the couturier’s Fall 2009 collection, had a couture feel to it, as the attention to detail was impeccable.

Carrie Underwood’s favourite designer presented plenty of party pieces, ranging from mini dresses, to strapless dress. A grey dress was presented with origami folds was exquisite, as was the strapless white dress, with a silver beaded skirt.

The gowns were also breath-taking, with especially the gold lame pleated gown, which had a magnificent train that billowed as the model walked down the runway. I wouldn’t be surprised if Carrie ticks this as a possible in her look book.

There were lots of liquidly and metallic pieces, which gave the collection a futuristic, space-age feel.


In the front row, I saw Jennifer Love-Hewitt being blinded by the photographers eager to take her picture. She look gorgeous this Valentine’s day, wearing a sexy L’Wren Scott figure hugging dress, which she wore with YSL Trib Two’s.

Kellie Pickler, so far a front row favourite – surprisingly – either needs to fire her make-up person, or hire one immediately and stop doing it herself.
