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.

OMEGA Constellation 2009, London

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.

MANGO Winter 2009/10 Photocall, Germany

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.

Hollywood Life’s 6th Annual Hollywood Style Awards

Joseph Altuzarra is only in his second season but stars like Paula Patton and Kim Kardashian are putting his label firmly on the map.

I just LOVE how Kim’s curves fill every inch of this white Altuzarra Fall 2009 dress, making it almost look like a totally different dress from the runway.

I would sooner buy it after seeing it on her, than the runway model.

The sexy star pairs her winter white dress with nude Brian Atwood pumps and a snake skin print clutch.

Thank god she’s back to her natural hair colour.

Sophia Bush along with Kim puts herself in contention for BDOTW.

As I said last week Sophia is back, and this sexy lace turtleneck Max Azria Fall 2009 mini dress shows how.

She looks sexy, a bit edgy, yet still the sophisticated Sophia we all know and love.

Cheryl Burke opted to modify her Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 mini dress into a strapless dress.

I think this maroon dress with the embellished ribbon benefits from the modification, as Cheryl is simply glowing.

Now this is how I like to see Lauren Conrad.

Wearing something young, fun and COLOURFUL.

Her Mara Hoffman Spring 2010 floral print dress deserved some better shoes, but I will just have to live with the fact that Hollywood loves black pumps.

This look is also one of my favourites from this event.

Hayden Panettiere wore a lavender mini Dennis Basso Spring 2010 dress with draped hips. I love the shape and her taupe accessories which include Bally peep toes, Lauren Merkin “Eve” clutch in glitter python.

Katie Cassidy knows how to look sexy without looking trashy.

My mini Charlize Theron looked stunning wearing a poufy sleeved mini dress which revealed her sexy back, and her winged tattoo.

I love the dress, the shoes and the clutch, but I’m not so crazy about the hair.

It may not be as colourful as I would like, but Selena Gomez looks stunning wearing this Notte by Marchesa off shoulder stretch crepe dress with ruffle sleeves.

It’s a grown up look, but not a boring look for the young actress.

With their trademark platium blonde ‘do’s Kelly Osbourne and DJ Luke Worrall couldn’t keep their eyes off each other as they walked the red carpet.

She wore a black and white ensemble with a jeweled neckline, paired with metallic silver Trib Two’s and orange nail polish.

It’s the child I feel sorry for. Pamela Anderson should know better.

What the fudge is she wearing?  Any why are their safety pins holding her dress together?  Like this look wasn’t tragic enough.

Who Wore Nuj Novakhett Better? Kim Kardashian or Ashlee Simpson

Kim Kardashian wore a black and white Nuj Novakhett Fall 2009 striped dress when she attended the “20th Annual MuchMusic Video Awards” in Toronto this summer.

She accessorized with a black belt, black pumps and a black mini clutch.

Ashlee Simpson arrived on the red carpet with her Melrose Place cast-mates for the “TV Guide’s The CW Fall TV Preview Party” wearing the same dress.

She wore her dress without a belt, but added a dramatic red clutch and white pointy pumps to punch up her look.

I really wasn’t a fan of Kim’s au naturel make-up, but I did like the way she belted the dress so she wins for me as white pumps make me shudders.

PIX11 Morning News, New York

Actress Michelle Monaghan was seen at the PIX11 Morning News studios in New York to promote her latest film “Trucker”.

She wore a black and cream Elie Saab Fall 2009 dress with a graphic stitch detail.

Her dress was paired with black suede pumps.

I prefer her colour combination to the one presented on the runway.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Eliza Dushku wore a cream crew-neck Kimberly Ovitz Jacob jersey mini dress which has pintucks throughout, paired with two tone Marni heels and a Tory Burch studded messenger bag.

For a second I thought she was Mariah Carey with those shade on.

New York City Premiere of Milton Hershey School Documentary, New York

When I first saw this Chris Benz Fall 2009 floral print dress one-sleeved dress on the runway, I wondered who would be crazy enough to wear this on the red carpet.

Paula Patton did this week with blue suede Sergio Rossi heels.

I’m surprised to admit that I think she totally look great in the dress.   This mix of colours really complements her skin-tone.

Nomads Two Worlds Art Preview, Australia

Fergie’s Karl Lagerfeld Fall 2009 black dress with a v-shaped textured panel is very similar to the dress Katy Perry wore from the same collection to Lagerfeld Spring 2010 show during Paris Fashion Week.

With her hair tightly pulled back Fergie wore her dress with black pumps and an Alexander McQueen Faithfull leather glove clutch.

Grand Opening Of The Famous Cupcakes Beverly Hills, LA

Kim Kardashian showed off some of her surprisingly toned abs wearing a black Pencey open back dress, which she paired with black pumps.

Who Wore Rafael Cennamo Better? Kim Kardashian or Alicia Witt

Earlier this summer Kim Kardashian was at the Monte Carlo Television Festival to promote her reality TV show “Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s”.

She wore a strapless Rafael Cennamo white flowing gown, with a charcoal feather bodice whilst getting ready for her elegant photo shoot at the L’Hermitage Hotel.

She was ready for her close-up sporting loose waves and a ravishing red pout.

Last night actress Alicia Witt wore the same gown when she walked the red carpet at the 2009 Primetime Emmy Awards.

The red head accessorized with forest green clutch, a large ring and a selection of bracelets.

I love the way Alicia soften the look so she wins for me.
