22.05.09 In Her Closet

Dash Miami Grand Opening


I though Kim Kardashian had kicked her Herve Leger habit, but she just couldn’t keep away from the bandages dresses for long.

I’ll give her credit, because it’s been a year since we last saw her wore Herve Leger, and this was her own private event.

This week saw the grand opening of Dash Miami, where the sisters put on their finest at the Clevelander Hotel, to celebrate the store opening.

You can keep up with the Kardashian’s, by shopping their closets.

Khloe wore a black plunging dress, with taupe Camilla Skovgaard Zaha open toe booties.

Kim wore a coral Herve Leger Strapless bandeau dress, with an Elizabeth & James triple metal plate necklace, with champagne Louboutin’s.

Kourtney wore the much lusted after Matthew Williamson for H&M maxi print dress, which instantly sold out, with a black clutch.

Maxim’s 10th Annual Hot 100 Celebration

Let’s see how many Trib Two’s, and Herve Leger dresses we can count at this event.

Heidi Montag, or should I say Heidi Pratt, wore platinum strappy heels, and a matching Nancy Gonzalez clutch, with her predictable Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 bandage dress.

I’m not particularly crazy about this look, and her necklace is so unnecessary. She should have saved it for a better outfit.

Herve Leger Count: 1
Trib Two Count: 0

Kim Kardashian opted for a very tight white H&M dress, from the Divided Exclusive Summer 2009 Collection, with 80s inspired shoulder pads.

This look is too severe for my liking, as she has one of those council estate face-lifts, were her hair is pulled back so tight her face looks stretched.

Jil Sander black pumps, and a Christian Louboutin clutch complete the look.

I’m really not liking Audrina Patridge’s lighter hair. She was so much prettier when her hair was darker.

She wore a navy mini dress under a black Kris Van Assche tuxedo jacket, whilst wearing her very favourite Balmain Crystal embellished studded sandals, and carrying her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch.

The only surprise with Amanda Bynes’ look, is that she’s not wearing a Herve Leger dress, but I guess when you know Heidi Montage has been invited, a Herve Leger dress is automatically off the table, as Heidi will definitely wear one.

Everything is standard Bynes’. Shoes, hair, vacant expression.

Herve Leger Count: 1
Trib Two Count: 1

Arielle Kebbel is wearing black peep-toes with her cute strapless BCBG Max Azria Spring 2009 dress *shudders*

God those heels are killing me, such a bad choice.

She should have considered the split in her dress, before striking that pose.

Ciara sure knows how to rock cornrows. The dress is event appropriate, but I would have expected her to go more high fashion, and stand out from this crowd considering her many good choices lately.

Herve Leger Count: 1
Trib Two Count: 2

Dania Ramirez channeled her inner Carrie Bradshaw wearing a pair of Manolo Blahnik Something blue satin pumps, with her marble print strapless Farah Angsana dress.

Gabrielle Union & Jamie Gunns arrived wearing the same Herve Leger dress.

That’s gotta be embarrassing, but that will teach them both to be so unimaginative.

Herve Leger Count: 3
Trib Two Count: 2

Vanessa Minnillo quietly walked the red carpet with Nick Lachey, wearing a Laila Azhar pleated strapless dress, with lust worthy Fendi Boudoir sandals.

Whenever I see Taryn Manning, I always think this is one of the lost Lohan sisters.

This platinum dress is so ill-fitting on her.

“Rock To Erase MS” Red Carpet

WOW. This red strapless Farah Angsana Fall 2009 gown, is so far away from the Kristin Cavallari we’re used to seeing on the red carpet.

This is what happens when a reality TV star takes herself out of her comfort “uniform” zone of Herve Leger and Trib Two’s, and tries something different.

Melissa George picked a cream leather Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 dress, with an airbrush print. This is very different from the bandage dresses we are used to seeing from Max Azria.

The panel down the front, helps give her the illusion of a very tiny waist.

Angie Harmon wore a Moschino Spring 2009 black and taupe sleeveless dress, with a cute ruffled neckline, and chiffon floral appliqués around the waist.

Her look was complete with very sexy strappy sandals.

One thing I will say about Avril Lavigne, is that she hasn’t dialed down her look since getting married.

Jessica Biel, Rachel Bilson, and even the hottest chick on the planet Adrian Lima, all dialed down their looks once becoming part of a couple.

That being said, it’s not the best dress on this red carpet, which further proves she hasn’t changed a bit.

Yes we have all given credit to Kim Kardashian toning down her trashy ways, but in this grey jersey dress, she’s totally muted.

Loving the nude lips though.

Jessica Lowndes wore silver accessories with her Rebecca Taylor green strapless dress, which had a ruffled detail on the skirt.

Jewel’s foot has finally healed, so now she can walk the red carpet unaided. Woohoo for her.

Like Jessica, silver accessories were used to punch up her purple tiered mini silk organza Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 dress with tiered skirt dress.

Amanda Bynes wore a white dress, which is cute enough, but I can’t help but always be so bored by her. Her look is so formulaic, and it all starts with the hair.

She completes her look with gold tribute sandals.

Who Wore Camilla & Marc Better? Ginnifer Goodwin or Kim Kardashian


I adore this Camilla & Marc Alabama mini dress which actress Ginnifer Goodwin wore back in early January, to the LA premiere of Big Love’s 3rd season.

This is such a cute spring-time cream lace dress, with asymmetrical tiered detail, it really could have been worn with flesh coloured tights, and a cute strappy sandal.

Kim Kardashian arrived at Tori Spelling’s release party for her new book Mommywood at The Thompson Hotel wearing the same dress.

Despite loving Ginnifer’s up do with this dress, I much prefer how Kim wore this dress, with the matchy matchy Louboutin peep-toes, so she wins for me.


This dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $700, or the international site for £500/€613.60.

135th Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby is all about the hats, and their were many beautiful creations on display this weekend.

Kim Kardashian’s grey hat, with black organza and feathered detailing, was teamed with a sexy white sheath dress, hugging her in all the right places, plus black accessories, including gloves, a clutch, and patent pointy heels.

I love this look, and how she still manages to look sexy, but not tacky.

LeAnn Rimes wore a very wide brimmed ivory hat, with a red scarf tied to it, which complimented her cute bow tie floral dress.

This is my favourite look, as it very much embodies the spirit of this event.

Eva Pigford, Marcille whatever she calls herself these days, also opted for black and white.

I would have loved this look if it hadn’t been for those black and white t-bar heels, as they cheapen her look.

All black? To the Kentucky Derby?

How totally unimaginative, boring, and such a safe option for Gabrielle Union.

I love Brooke Shields’ ivory jacquard dress. It’s cute with via the bow, and the length, and it’s sexy with the v-neck plunge, but she throws it all away with that blue spaceship-like hat. The net is the killer.

When it comes to Bethenny Frankel’s look, I don’t know what’s worse. The Benny Hill hat, or the pink asymmetrical ruffled jumpsuit.

28.04.09 Premiere

"Wonderful World" Premiere

I love Sarah Jessica Parker’s Narciso Rodriguez dress, and her fuschia pink Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy pumps.

The spaghetti strapped dress, is far more interesting than the cutesy vintage dress she wore recently.

What I don’t like is the necklace. It seems so unnecessary on a dress that already has so much detail, with the print, and the sequin panel.

I also really hate her hair, as it’s so uncharacteristically messy. A Carrie-esqe slick back bun would have worked so much better here.

Sanaa Lathan makes a quiet impact on the red carpet, but she’s always consistently and effortlessly gorgeous, and last night was not exception.

She took to the red carpet wearing a floaty white silk chiffon v-neck Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 dress, with a full skirt. The dress was accented with a black velvet belt, which she complimented with a black Roger Vivier clutch, and black peep-toes.

Maybe the wig got a bit too itchy, as Kim Kardashian returned to her natural raven locks, for which I’m very grateful. Her faux Beyonce look was just wasn’t working for me.

The TV star looks fabulous in a black strapless jumpsuit, with matching accessories, an outstanding gold chocker and red nails.

Social Events Of The Week

Rosemount Australian Fashion Week Spring 2009/10 – Camilla & Marc show

Australian Fashion Week has kicked off, so I hope that means we’ll see plenty of Lara Bingle during the week.

The gorgeous model arrived wearing a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 ultra mini maroon cowl-neck dress, with purple puffy sleeves.

Her look was complete with – what I predict will be she shoes of the year – the Louis Vuitton Spicy heels.

Her dress is incredibly short, so the tights can be forgiven, but it doesn’t mean I like them.

“The Philanthropist” Broadway Opening Night, New York

Sarah Jessica Parker ivory dress, with an pink carnation is very cute, but I’m finding it hard to get excited about it.

“The Good Guy” Premiere, Tribeca Film Festival

Alexis Bledel is wearing a Cushnie et Ochs spring 2009 black dress, with cut-outs details.

It’s a very interesting choice of dress. I’m particularly fascinated by the shoulder pads on the sleeveless dress.

Independent Filmmaker Project, New York

We haven’t seen Katie Holmes on the red carpet much recently.

Here she wears a black satin Alexander McQueen halter top, with matching black pants. It’s quite classic, and appropriate for her event.

She completes her look with Givenchy lace-up heels, and a Hermes Medor clutch.

Thankfully Sanaa Lathan was there to add a lot of colour to this event, with her bright red dress.

I’m loving the multiple string of pearls.

Her look is complete with silver accessories.

Hannah Montana: The Movie Berlin Premiere

Miley Cyrus had yet another premiere to attend this weekend. This time she wore a dove grey Temperley London dress.

The dress was cute, not too tight, not too short, not too revealing, and age appropriate, so hopefully we can all agree – for once -that this is a great look for Miley.

Out & About, New York

The world has been going crazy about Kim Kardashian new lighter ‘do.

I say “please”, it’s so obvious the girl is wearing a honey coloured weave.

The volume of her hair is a dead giveaway, plus the texture.

As she lapped up the attention from the paparazzi, she was spotted out in New York wearing a black Helmut Lang V-neck twill jumpsuit, with Giuseppe Zanotti gladiator boots.

I don’t know about you, but this look scares me. I hope she takes out the weave soon.
