Clinton Foundation’s Millennium Network Event

Jessica Alba’s orange Lanvin Spring 2009 dress has flowers made out of paillettes applied to the skirt of her dress. This for me is the most interesting part of her look.

Her hairstyle seems to age her, and although I appreciate her not wearing black heels, those purple suede heels don’t work for me.

Kerry Washington opts for a casually chic nude tunic, with a black detailed neckline and black panels.

Simple, yet oh so beautiful.

Jessica Lowndes opted for sultry smoky eyes with her black and ivory flirty dress.

Dania Ramirez’ black ruched dress, is all very Girls of The Playboy Mansion, which she wears with Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy pumps.

Social Events Of The Week

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively finally gets it right.

She was looking ravishing in a mini pink Diane von Furstenberg dress, and gold Jimmy Choo’s for her appearance on Letterman this week.

I don’t even like one-sleeved anything, so for her to make me love this look, is even more impressive

Hot colour, hot look.

“Skellig” London VIP Screening

Kelly Macdonald wore a lace necklined Collette Dinnigan Spring 2009 LBD.

I love the silver beaded shoulders, which gives the dress a slight edgy Balmain-eqse feel to it.

EcoMom’s Sowing Hope In Congo Party, LA

Nicole Richie wears another look which is very typical of her earth-mother/boho style.

This white kimono sleeved maxi, is covered in an interesting pattern.

Kerry Washington teams a black pencil skirt, with a green Missoni Fall 2008 v-neck sweater.

It looks like she is wearing the same Choo’s as Blake Lively above.

The Ivy, LA

Paris Hilton looks pretty in pink – for a refreshing change – as she leaves the Ivy after dinner with her new boyfriend Doug Reinhardt and her parents.

Paris’ floral tulip-skirted dress is gorgeous. I really love it.

She teamed her dress with silver pumps for this sweet look.

Social Events Of The Week

Opening Ceremony Of The 33rd HKIFF Gala Premiere, Hong Kong

Hong Kong actress, and ambassador of the Hong Kong International Film Festival Karen Mok, arrived at the premiere of Shinjuku Incident, looking adorable in her Roberto Cavalli floral gazare strapless mini dress.

The dress has raised fabric panels on the hips, with a skirt of tiered ruffles at the back.

She wore the dress with gold heels, and nude fishnet tights.

These Cavalli dresses become more appealing with each wearer.

The U.S. Fund For UNICEF’s TAP Project for The Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation, LA

Nicole Richie is a pro at boho-chic dressing.

The mum-to-be channeled her usual 70s chic in a tie-dye blood red and blue silk maxi dress.

The dress does all the talking, as she kept her accessories to a minimum.

Rachel Zoe’s floor-sweeping yellow and grey ikat Jenni Kayne Spring 2008 gown is very much on the tribal trend.

The celebrity stylist works uptown boho, with wavy blonde locks and multiple gold bracelets for that I just ‘threw this together’ look.

Lauren Conrad opted for silk nude slouchy top with cute black shorts.

Her look was pulled together with Christian Louboutin peep-toes, a black clutch and a two necklaces.

Lauren is all smiles considering her Lauren Conrad Collection has been put on hold citing the “economic climate”. I guess us shoppers don’t want to purchase a $225 tank dress, which even Lauren won’t wear.

An Evening With Neil LaBute And Friends, New York

Kerry Washington wore a Celine silk blouse with an attached beaded necklace. I love her cute tangerine and white scorpion print Sariah skirt, which sits high on her waist.

She completed her look with black pumps.

Conde Nast Traveler 2009 Awards, Madrid

Aitana Sanchez Gijon wore a black strapless Oscar de la Renta Embroidered taffeta dress, which was presented in the Resort 2009 collection.

The beautiful actress completed her look with black and diamante embellished peep-toes.

Martina Klein certainly came to dazzle in her electric blue mini dress, which was embellished with silver sequins.

The model wore grey peep-toes, with complimented her grey Louis Vuitton clutch, and her art deco diamond bracelet.

Actress Clara Lago wore an alphabet black fringed flapper-style dress, with black pumps.

I love this one-shoulder striped dress, model Maria Leon is wearing. Her fuchsia pink accessories compliment her dress well.

TV personality Paula Vazquez wore a LBD, with a peek-a-boo bodice. Her look was livened up with a neon yellow clutch, and stunning gold jewelery.

Who Wore Maison Martin Margiela Better? Kerry Washington or Kim Kardashian


Kerry Washington was the first to wear this black Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2008 blazer to the Generation Obama Concert last December.

Kerry looked chic, but very avant garde wearing her blazer with a black pencil skirt, and black pumps.

Kim Kardashian wore the white version, to the Y-3 Fall 2009 show during New York Fashion Week.

Some of you liked this look, a lot of you are still not convinced of Kim’s new style direction.

As much as I liked Kim in this look, I have to go with Kerry.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Victoria Beckham & Kerry Washington


Victoria Beckham was ahead in this poll from the very start.

I love Victoria, she looked amazing at the Armani store opening party, and was also ready to vote her Best Dressed until Kerry Washington wowed me in Louis Vuitton.

It could have been just a boring black suit, but Kerry kept the accessories true to the runway, but added animal wedges, which worked. Even Chloe Sevigny wore the runway shoes with her Vuitton Spring ensemble, so kudos to Kerry for stepping out of the box.

2009 Film Independent Spirit Awards

I love this awards show, as we get so see more a more eclectic and colourful red carpet.

This year the stars didn’t disappoint. Jessica Alba looked so lovely in a stylish lilac Christian Dior Spring 2009 dress, with tan Christian Louboutin Mary Janes.

Her make-up is light, and compliments her dress.

This look is so feminine, I adore her here.

I really like this navy and red striped Michael Kors dress Cameron Diaz is wearing, but – not for the first time – I really don’t think this suits her.

I think it’s way too conservative for her, as she is usually more playful on the red carpet.

Is this the case of a new boyfriend cramping her style? We have seen this before.

And will she please, oh please get those roots done asap.

Lucy Liu opted for a fuschia pink Lanvin Spring 2009 satin dress.

She wore her dress with a clear belt, as not to block the draping effect on her dress.

The look was complete beige Jimmy Choo heels, and a Roger Vivier clutch that matched her dress.

♥

Claire Danes wore a two tone Lanvin Spring 2009 strapless bustier dress, with a gathered skirt.

She decorated her dress with a nude necklace, which was also from the Lanvin Spring 2009 collection.

This is such a sophisticated look for Claire, although I am not sure about the black heels.

Post-pregnancy Michelle Monaghan, continues to rock my world.

She was one of my favourites at this event wearing a Versace Spring 2009 baby blue mini dress, with a bell-shaped skirt, and jeweled strappy sandals.

I expected to see more of this collection on the red carpet other than 3 pieces – January Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow & Michelle – we have seen.

Kerry Washington looks absolutely outstanding in this electric blue Marchesa dress, with an embellished neckline. Although like Claire, I’m not so sure about her shoe choice.

This is a nice Rodarte Spring 2006 dress, but Anne Hathaway is a young girl, who should be experimenting a lot more.

The whole look is too blah. I’m not excited about it at all.

With her last two looks failing to impress, I’m very scared for what she might bring to the Oscars red carpet.

Taraji P. Henson on the other hand continues to impress.

Her Burberry LBD is decorated with embroidered details on the skirt to give it a tiering effect, and this same detail appears on the top of the dress.

She completes her look with black gladiator Pedro Garcia sandals, and a Burberry Prorsum Fall 2008 necklace.

I’m very excited to see what she wears at the Oscars.

Zooey Deschanel adds a black velvet bow to her Lela Rose Spring 2009 shimmering blue dress, which match her eyes.

Her cute clutch was from Moschino, and her heels are Ferragamo.

Michelle Williams wore a simple simple navy, grey and white striped sheath Chloé Resort 2009 dress, with black pumps.

Padma Lakshmi is so incredibly beautiful.

Last night she wore a Giorgio Sant Angelo jersey dress from Decades Inc, which had a white tile pailette detail cascading down the bodice.

I know many of you are not Teri Hatcher fans, but I think she has been having a lot more good days than bad recently.

Her LBD from Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2009 collection with the sheer panels, is very sophisticated, yet sexy. Plus she doesn’t opt for a predictable black shoe, instead she wore a satin champagne Brian Atwood peep-toe heel.

Her pink clutch is Jimmy Choo and her jewels are by Piaget.

Mena Suvari added a multitude of colour to the red carpet, with this Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2009 maxi dress.

She wore her dress with a larger tan belt, which is thinner than the one which appeared on the runway.

She wore Piaget jewels to complete her look.

This is not the best look for Elizabeth Banks. The skirt is fine, but the rest……

I should be thankful that this Azzedine Alaia chocolate brown dress Penelope Cruz wore is not black, but I am still mourning the loss of her fantastic style, to see this as a positive.

Yikes. The coat Rachel Weisz is wearing doesn’t cover up enough of her floral dress.

I love the fearless Sandra Oh on the red carpet. She opting for this fuschia pink tunic Jenni Kayne Resort 2009 dress with black pumps.

Sandra is already on trend for Fall 09, as we saw a lot of this colour at New York Fashion Week.

Look who is back, not surprisingly wearing black. Ellen Page.

Rose Byrne’s white Calvin Klein Spring 2009 dress, is a perfect fit for her.

She keeps the minimalist look going by opting for plain silver pumps and no jewelery.

The shoulder pads on Mary-Kate Olsen’s Balmain dress are too dominate for my liking. It makes her appear to have no neck.

Her beige heels are by Proenza Schouler.

On the plus-side, she looks very healthy.

2nd Annual Essence Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Kerry Washington look Fab-u-lous wearing Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 ensemble, which consisted of a black blazer, a silver and gold metallic obi belt, and a black feathered skirt.

Like I said at the end of last year, Kerry was one of the most consistent actresses to walk the red carpet in 2008.

Many of you argued that she didn’t take enough risks. I would say that looks to be changing in 2009, because there are no safe options from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 collection.

Kerry did not opt for the runway shoes. Instead she wore a pair of leopard print pumps that worked perfectly. ?

Halle Berry was equally impressive wearing a strapless nude Reem Acra Spring 2009 dress, with a gold metallic floral print.

I loved this dress, but the large folded detail at the back was a little too much for my liking.

She completed her look with gold matching Christian Louboutin slingbacks.

After visiting Gustavo Cadile on Thursday, I was really excited to see that Sanaa Lathan was wearing a dress I had seen in his studio.

The gorgeous chocolate dress, had a mesh overlay with stunning embroidered details, and sequins to give it some sparkle.

The dress was further decorated with a dark pink bowed sash at the waist, and smaller bows on the shoulders.

She completes her look with matching pumps, and a Mary Norton clutch.

GORGEOUS.

I am not crazy about Taraji P. Henson’s make-up, but I do like her Zac Posen dress. Very appropriate for ‘Ladies Who Lunch’.

Tia Mowry opted for a colourful dress with a lot of pizazz.

Tichina Arnold wore a black suit, with a ruffled hemmed skirt, but forgot to put a blouse under her jacket.

Her look was complete with YSL two tone heels.

Vivica A. Fox wore a gorgeous navy dress, with a stunning embellished neckline and pocket detailing.

She wore her dress with Balenciaga heels.

Garcelle Beauvious opted for a black dress with a textured white front bib, which she wore with black peep-toes.

Lauren London in all black with a white Chanel purse.

Tatyana Ali’s exotic gown seems a bit much for this event.
