2010 Cosmetic Executive Women Beauty Awards

I did a double double take whilst viewing the red carpet pics for the “2010 Cosmetic Executive Women Beauty Awards” which was held in New York on Friday night.

Kim Kardashian and Selita Ebanks both attended wearing looks we’ve seen before on the red carpet.

Kim carried a scary looking Christian Louboutin Talita spiked clutch whilst wearing a coral Rachel Roy Resort 2010 dress we’ve seen worn by Tyra Banks.

The model and TV presenter wore it when she attended the “36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” back in August last year.

Selita wore the same Victoria Beckham Spring 2010 dress which the designer herself wore back in September last year, when she attended the Fashion East show during London Fashion Week.

Tyra and Victoria both look better.

Kim clearly ripped off this look right down to the choice of heels, whereas Selita lets herself down with the cheap looking clutch.

Sephora South Beach Fragrance Launch – Kim Kardashian In Azzedine Alaia

Forget awards season, it feels like we’re in the middle of fragrance season as Kim Kardashian follows Beyonce Knowles in releasing a fragrance this week.

Kim – sans siblings – debuted her new signature scent at ‘Sephora’ in Florida last night.

Like Beyonce, Kim also wore a red dress to her launch but Kim’s was much more pleasing to the eye.

The reality TV star wore a red Azzedine Alaia flounce dress with a square neckline, which she paired with gold earrings, a stack of bangles and nude pumps.

Kim obviously wanted to look sexy on her big night.  The dress suits her figure and I love this red on her.

The flounce hem stops this dress from looking like another bandage dress, which we have grown long tired of seeing Kim wearing.

I don’t love the look, but I don’t hate it either.

Kim Kardashian’s Obsession…Brian Lichtenberg Dresses

Kim Kardashian was at the Guys and Dolls nightclub in West Hollywood last night for the launch of The Sugar Factory’s Couture Pops.

The reality TV star was wearing a dress which has a very distinctive one-padded-shoulder style.

This dress was designed by Brian Lichtenberg.

His Fall 2009 collection consisted of many futuristic pieces like this, and it appears Kim is in love with his work.

I do love her velvet geometric print glitter dress, but not with those tights and YSL ‘Easy’ ankle boots.

Her obsession started back in October when she wore a printed asymmetrical dress when dining out in LA.

She then casually wore a striped Brian Lichtenberg “Grecian” dress with navy leggings whilst out shopping.

She celebrated her 26th birthday party wearing the Brian Lichtenberg silver hooded dress which is so very popular with celebs.

And most recently she wore my favourite – the Brian Lichtenberg red velvet leopard print dress.

What’s also interesting with most of these looks is that she wears the same YSL ankle boots.

Runway To “Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s” Promo – Kim Kardashian In Peter Pilotto

When I arrived at my mothers home for Christmas, my sister decided it was then a good time to inform me that I was in charge of bringing DVDs to watch over the Christmas period.

As I was ill informed prepared I had to suffer by watching her favourite programs.

One of them was “Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s” which had a marathon back-to-back session on E!

I’m not a huge fan of not-so reality TV, so this was painful to watch.

Why do they never have an arguments that last longer than the 30 minute episode? Why is there always a happy ending? Real families don’t make up that fast.

Unfortunately I found myself caring about their situations, which is why I’m ashamed to admit that I am hooked.

A new promo picture was recently released featuring Kim Kardashian front and center wearing a Peter Pilotto Volcano red print shield dress from the Fall 2009 collection, with black Fendi cut-out heels.

I like the way Kim belted the dress otherwise it could have looked like a sack on her.

I love that she’s keeps making not so obvious choices, this one worked, the Balanciaga dress didn’t.

Runway To “Pre-New Year’s Eve Party” – Kim Kardashian In Balenciaga

Kim Kardashian arrived at a pre-New Year’s Eve bash at Eva Longoria Parker’s luxurious new nightclub, Eve in Las Vegas last month.

As much as I have wanted to see more from the Balenciaga Fall 2009 collection on the red carpet, I’m really not feeling this look on Kim Kardashian.

I’m not being snobby by disliking it because she’s a reality TV star, that’s only 5% of the problem.

Firstly she’s way too busty for this dress. A bandeau or a lining would’ve been preferred. I feel like she only picked this look to show off her bra.

The dress is supposed to be a slightly dropped at the waist, but the band around the waist sits too high on Kim, no doubt because of her famous asset.

This will also be the reason why the skirt appears to be shorter.

If she was going to wear an edgy look, a sexier shoe would have been preferred.

Sorry Kim, but the only thing I like about this look is the clutch.

What do you guys think?

Social Events Of The Weekend

“The Element of Freedom” Album Launch Party, London

Alicia Keys was recently in London to promote her new album “The Element of Freedom”.

The superstar singer was wearing a white and blue vibrant paint print Alexander McQueen v neckline dress with batwing sleeves which she belted.

Her look was paired with blue tights, and Giuseppe Zanotti electric blue ankle boots.

I would never belt a dress with batwing sleeves as they are hard enough to manoeuvre in, but it seems to work here for Alicia.

“A Little Night Music” Broadway Opening Night, New York

In an age when we see so many ankle boots on the red carpet, it’s nice to get warm and fuzzy feeling from Catherine Zeta Jones on the red carpet.

She gives us old fashion glamour which made me fall in love with stars on the red carpet in the first place.

On her opening night on Broadway, the Welsh beauty looked so very elegant wearing a Gustavo Cadile black gown, with tiered skirt trimmed with sequins and a rosette detail on the hip.

The gown appears to be slightly modified from the baby blue Resort 2010 gown presented on the runway.

Z100s Jingle Ball 2009, New York

I hate to say this, but I’m really tiring of Leighton Meester’s ‘edgy’ look.

It was cute at first, but now it feels so forced.

The actress and wannabee singer opted for this cold-shoulder Louise Goldin leather and mesh sleeved dress paired with Proenza Schouler patent leather pumps.

To say me no likey is putting it very mildly.

House of Harlow 1960 Holiday Collection Launch, LA

The woman best known for her boho chic style gives something new.

Firstly she looks stunning with a chestnut new hair colour, then she shows off her post-baby figure wearing a L’Wren Scott fitted ivory dress which has been worn by Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jennifer Lopez and Nicole Kidman (of course).

LOVE the fact she didn’t wear black pumps, instead she opted for Christian Louboutin snake-skin heels.

Louis Vuitton and Teen Vogue Holiday celebration, LA

Alexa Chung’s MTV show might have been cancelled, but that didn’t stop the Brit putting on a stiff upper lip and partying with the kids at the Teen Vogue Holiday party.

She carried a SC bag from the Sofia Copolla’s Louis Vuitton collection, whilst wearing a Louis Vuitton Resort 2010 print skirt.

I adore this print which has been worn by January Jones and Rachel Weisz on the January 2010 Vogue UK cover.

Emma Roberts opted for a sheer nude top, black pants and black LV Can can heels.

Samual French Bookstore, LA

After a rare occasion in which Dita von Teese had a bad day on the red carpet, the Burlesque star is back to her best.

This weekend she redeemed herself wearing a navy Lanvin Fall 2009 coat/dress worn with a belt, boots and an exquisite fascinator hat.

Tres chic.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Even in a simple black Jasmine di Milo black cashmere coat Kate Hudson is still uber sexy.

Showing off her pins the “Nine” actress is wearing the Brian Atwood Wagner rivet suede pumps which are on my wish list.

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel And Casino, LA

Kim Kardashian accessorized her ALC double zipper draped dress, with a stunning neck piece, and Pierre Hardy Saba sandals.
