Book Signing For “Dita: Stripteese” at Books and Books, Miami

Normally you can’t stop me gushing about how wonderful Dita von Teese looks, but on this occasion me no likey.

I would have preferred the runway black version of Dita’s Jean-Charles de Castelbajac leopard head maxi dress, to the red one she’s wearing.

Four Seasons George V Hotel, Paris

Victoria Beckham was spotted leaving her Paris hotel last night wearing the 5th piece from her 20 piece Spring 2010 collection.

As much as I want to complain about her 3rd black look in a row I love her Victoria Beckham peplum dress – as previously worn by Blake Lively.

Tres chic. Magnifique from the council estate face lift, to her dove grey Trib Two’s.

Four Seasons George V Hotel, Paris

Earlier today the busy fashion designer was again spotted leaving her hotel.  This time she wore a winter white belted Maison Martin Margiela Fall 2009 wool coat with split sleeves.

It appears that all she’s wearing.

With her burgundy Christian Louboutin heels, white coat and Hermes Himalayan Crocodile Birkin she no doubt turned heads.

She on her way back folks *squeals with excitement*

13th Annual Cracked Xmas, LA

Kim Kardashian looked stunning wearing an asymmetrical Tadashi Shoji Spring 2010 dress.

The midnight blue crinkled one shoulder dress with illusion beaded lace insets flattered her beautiful curvy figure.

She paired her dress with Pierre Hardy Saba sandals.

I wasn’t too crazy about those two shades of blonde extensions she placed in her hair though.

The UNICEF Ball, LA

Some of you may think I always pick on Selena Gomez when I say she dresses too mature for her age.

Its only because when I know she can looks totally outstanding like she does here in her hot pink strapless Notte by Marchesa gown.

The eye-popping colour works perfectly well with her dark hair and her milky skin tone.

Sergio Rossi grey peep-toes and a glittering clutch complete the look.

Friends Without Borders First Annual Los Angeles Gala

Anne Hathaway evokes simple elegance wearing a one-sleeved Dior button-down dress with Christian Louboutin heels.

Loving the hair and neutral make-up.

“The Young Victoria” New York Screening

There is something quite garish about Emily Blunt’s red and black Carolina Herrera dress that leaves me cold.

She’s had much better moments.

Social Events Of The Week

33rd Annual Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF), Egypt

It’s been a while since we last saw Salma Hayek looking this fantastic.

The actress looked stunning at this event were she received an honorary award wearing a printed Balenciaga Fall 2009 gown.

I had hoped to see more from this collection on the red carpet, but Salma delights in her stunning gown version, which I prefer to the runway.

Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ Inaugural Governors Awards, LA

Ever since Cannes Film Festival Abbie Cornish just gets better and better for me on the red carpet.

I adore her in this Christian Dior lilac belted gown.

Her hair and make-up are gorgeous, her Neil Lane jewels are subtly beautiful and that clutch is divine.

Holt Renfrew Celebrates New Calgary Store, Canada

After two gowns Kristen Bell gives us a fresh sparkling Jenni Kayne Spring 2010 mini to get us in the to party mood for this weekend.

As always the blonde actress is flawless.

“The Blind Side” New Orleans Benefit Premiere

Sandra Bullock looked stunning wearing a purple striped Alberta Ferretti Spring 2010 gown.

I just wish she had smiled to help me love this look even more.

Fabolous’ Birthday Party, New York

Amber Rose usually over does it by wearing loud colours, or tacky tight ensembles but I’m totally in love with this Martin Grant Fall 2009 sculptured bustier.

Black velvet pants, YSL suede black heels and sunglasses complete her look.

2010 Pirelli Calendar Cocktail Reception, London

Daisy Lowe opted for a Jasmine di Milo Fall 2008 jumpsuit which is split to the thigh.

I love this look as it’s seductive without being too revealing.

The tights even work in her favour, as she looks like she’s wearing a full bodysuit.

NAC’s Medal of Honor for Film Award Presentation, New York

I’m not feeling this Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 look on Christina Ricci at all, and it has nothing to do with the tights.

The asymmetrical one-sleeved mini has a mish mash of colours I really don’t like, plus I don’t think the dress is particularly flattering on her.

Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Birthday Celebration, New York

I’ve loved this Alexander Wang corseted one-shoulder dress ever since I laid eyes on it.

Kim Kardashian does look good in this dress.

I love way the dress gracefully drapes her shoulder, but she’s a little bit too busty for the dress.

2009 MTVU Woodie Awards, New York

I’m also surprised we haven’t seem much of the Balenciaga Resort 2010 collection on the red carpet.

Jessica Stam opted to wear this orange belted mini with tight and a small patterned bag.

“The Princess And The Frog”, LA Premiere

It’s been forever since we last saw Anika Noni Rose on the red carpet, then she reappears at this premiere wearing the Thread Social asymmetrical dress I had added to my ‘favourites’ a few weeks ago.

I love the back of the dress with the unexpected double strappy detail.

Such a cute look to match that gorgeous smile.

“Me And Orson Welles” UK Premiere

Claire Danes’ Stella McCartney gown is very classic and simple with ruffle details.

Large silver earrings provides the sparkle.

14th Annual GQ Men Of The Year Awards

January Jones would have stood out at this event wearing a two-tone Gucci Resort 2010 bandeau dress, paired with statement necklace, black heels and her blonde locks piled high.

Her asymmetrical heels are an interesting choice, but I would have loved something less heavy to go with her summery dress.

Zoe Saldana continues to impress wearing a two tone lingerie-inspired Antonio Berardi Spring 2010 bustier dress which screams ‘sexy’.

I’m loving the gold heels Jamie King wore with her Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 dress.

The dress gathers from neckline down the front of her dress and has an interesting jagged hemline.

It’s been a while since we saw Emma Stone on the red carpet.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a back tulle Christian Cota Fall 2009 draped dress with Guiseppe Zanotti ankle boots.

I wish I could have found a better picture of her stand up straight.

I am in lust with Olivia Wilde’s white Marchesa Bridal dress.

The colour, the structure, the folds and the embroidered detail on the bodice excite my senses.

Unfortunately I’m don’t feel the same way about her hairstyle.  An updo would’ve worked wonders.

Her look is paired with Brian Atwood Marlo heels.

There was a time when Kim Kardashian would’ve been guaranteed to walk this event wearing a bandage dress, but these days she covers up but still manages to look sexy.

This plum colour is gorgeous on her.

Jessica Stroup always keeps her look young and fresh.

She wore a pair of gold metallic lace boy shorts and black tailored jacket from the ‘Amber Valletta for Monrow’ capsule collection.

Jimmy Choo Detroit suede ankle boots complete her look.

It looks like shorts were the hot trend of the night as Amanda Seyfried also donned a black pair, teaming them with a crocheted fringed top.

A Judith Leiber clutch and Brian Atwood Maniac black heels complete this cute look.

Rose McGowan goes without her signature red pout on this occasion for a fresher neutral look.

Her blue Miu Miu bustier dress has also been worn by Kristen Dunst.

Elizabeth Banks and Gabrielle Union both wore black BCBG Max Azria dresses.

Elizabeth paired her mini dress with pattern tights, whilst Gabrielle’s asymmetrical hemmed dress was paired with peep-toes and a two-tone clutch.

Who Wore Brian Lichtenberg Better? Kim Kardashian, Ciara or Eva Pigford

This Brian Lichtenberg Fall 2009 shoulder padded dress complete with hood, proves itself to be a perfect party-piece.

Contesting for the WWIB crown here we have three strong contenders.

Ciara arrived at her album launch party at the “M2 Ultra Lounge” in New York City with pulled back hair to show off her amazing bone structure and heighten the impact of those exaggerated shoulders.

Kim Kardashian choosing the sparkly number when she hit the red carpet at TAO in Las Vegas to celebrate her 29th birthday party with her sister.

She copied her BFF Ciara, by adding volume to her hair and pulling it back into a sleek ponytail.

America’s Next Top Model winner Eva Pigford…or Eva ‘Marcille’…gave a Grace-Jones style slant to the look by wearing the hood to a Halloween party.

Both Eva and Kim opted for a seasonal shoe-boot to give a punky edge to their glamour.

Although I’m not too sure about the crazy make-up, Eva wins this WWIB for me. She looks full of fun and confidence and the boots are a stylish touch.

Demi Lovato also wears this same dress at several points in her video for her new single “Remember December”.

Social Events Of The Weekend

Conde Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards, New York

Mary Louise Parker has been getting in touch with her flirty side lately, as she’s been wearing a lot of shorter cocktail dresses.

On this occasion she picked a Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 black and white floral dress which is modified from the runway version.

Parker’s dress is narrower on the skirt and is off-the-shoulder instead of one-shouldered.

I really love this look.  It’s so relaxed and fun as you would expect from any Marc Jacobs piece.

Kim Kardashian Celebrates Her 29th Birthday At TAO, Las Vegas

Some of you have accused Kim Kardashian of ‘brand hopping’ i.e. the second a label is hot, Kim’s wearing it.

We’ve seen her do with with Herve Leger, Balmain, Altuzarra and now Brian Lichtenberg.

I personally don’t really have a problem with this because she appears to be doing this earlier on, and not at the point when Heidi Montag has discovered the brand.

At her 26th birthday party this weekendshe was the golden girl glowing wearing a Brian Litchenberg Fall 2009 shouldered padded hooded mini dress, paired with black ankle boots.

It appears my prays for the end of the ankle boots trend are yet to be answered.

BFF Ciara was there, looking sexy in a Rock & Republic spiked leather jacket over a velvet playsuit.

Without even trying Ciara out does her host.

This girl is to gorgeous for words.

4th Annual Black Girls Rock! Awards, New York

Naomi Campbell looked radiant wearing a sexy Alexander Wang one-shouldered bandage dress, which she paired with a furry cape.

The cape may seem a bit OTT, but if anyone can make it work it’s Miss Naomi.

“Avatar” Stage Greeting, Japan

Zoe Saldana looked very elegant wearing a black Giambattista Valli strapless bustier dress, with ruffled detail on her hip.

Everything is perfect here from her hair to her jewels to her dress.

Amy Adams wore the gown version of this dress to the SAG Awards earlier this year.

The First Annual Noble Humanitarian Awards, LA

Nicole Richie looks heavenly wearing cream chiffon Jasmine Di Milo gown.

Motherhood clearly agrees with her, she’s glowing.

Teri Hatcher opted for a SuperDupa white Hugo Boss suit with gold peep-toes.

I would be petrified to wearing anything that pristine.

Social Events Of The Week

Couples Retreat Photocall, London

Malin Akerman wore a cute satin animal print Temperley London Resort 2010 dress, which was draped around the hips to add some texture and volume.

Black pumps complete the look.

Kristen Bell’s 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2010 lace dress has to be my least favourite of her “Couples Retreat” promotional tour.

The actress tried to punch up look with a fiery pair of red heels, but it wasn’t enough for me to like this look.

GNC for QuickTrim Launch, LA

Kim Kardashian looked fabulous wearing an Alexander Wang Tailored Metal-Stud Jacket paired with a simple white tee and black LnA Olivia knit ruched leggings.

She also added some YSL Divine ankle boots to her look, which have suddenly become very popular.

Khloe Kardashian opted for a green and black Myne sweet-heart neckline dress, which she paired with a large Chanel belt, a selection of bangles and black platform ankle boots.

Madison & Diavolina Launch Party, LA

Mandy Moore’s red and multi-coloured printed silk dress reminds me of the same gorgeous print used in the Isabel Marant Fall 2009 presentation.

She looks so beautiful here.

“Bye Bye Birdie” Broadway Opening Night After Party, New York

Gina Gershon wore an Azzaro by Vanessa Seward jumpsuit with a thigh-high split.

With a black fur shrug, Fred Leighton jewels and roses in her hair the look was complete.

Cindy Crawford showed off her endless legs wearing a black Alexander Wang hooded goddess dress and multi-strap heels.

The supermodel added some glitzy jewelery to dazzling us with this sexy look.

Scarlett Johansson wasn’t sexy quite as sexy as Cindy.  Her look was more secretary chic.

The actress wore a pussy-bow blouse and beige pencil skirt from Mango’s Fall 2009 collection.

FusionBeauty’s New InFatuation Lip Gloss Launch Party, LA

Kim Kardashian wore her YSL Divine ankle boots again when she attended this event.

This time she paired it with a silver sequined jacket, a white tee and a black mini skirt.
