“Astro Boy” Los Angeles Premiere

Kristen Bell’s Oscar de la Renta Resort 2010 navy blue and white embroidered dress works very well because she has kept accessories to a minimum.

She teamed her dress with a pair of simple cut-out heels.

30th Annual Salute To Women In Sports Awards, New York

Laila Ali is defying the myth that sportswomen can’t look elegant and feminine on the red carpet, by wearing a breath-taking raspberry silk chiffon one shoulder Tadashi Shoji gown with floral strap detail.

‘Up In The Air’ Premiere, London Film Festival

I always wondered how this Alberta Ferretti Fall 2009 chartreuse gown with a black beaded embroidered overlay would look on the red carpet.

Natascha McElhone keeps the look very simple, yet I just can’t fall in love with this look as stunning as the detail is.

Rag & Bone Soho Store Opening, New York

Sienna Miller wore a Rag & Bone ensemble including grey shorts, cropped jacket and shoe-boots to the Rag & Bone SoHo store opening.

Even when she dresses down still looks gorgeous.

Actresses Eva Longoria Parker, Andie MacDowell and Kate del Castillo attended this event as the ambassadors of L’Oreal.

Eva wore a two tone grey Nicole Miller Studio One tweed pencil dress with an asymmetrical neckline, whilst Andie was divine in a printed dress.

Kate was equally chic in a black chiffon top and wide-legged white pants.

Moet & Chandon “Tribute To Cinema”, Japan

Scarlett Johansson maybe wearing a vintage Haute Couture Givenchy gown and Christian Dior heels, but I just can’t raise a smile whilst for this look.

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.

“Couples Retreat” Germany Promotional Tour

Premiere

Kristen Bell glowed wearing a coral BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010 mini dress straight off the runway.

The dress has a sheer asymmetrical panel and sheer panels in the cut-outs on the side of the dress, so it gives the illusion of this dress being strapless.

Kristen is a cute, young and fun so this dress suits both her style and personality.

Jimmy Choo heels and a Celestina clutch complete her look.

I’m really loving Malin Ackerman’s new hairstyle, it makes her look so sophisticated and chic.

A chic new ‘do needs a beautiful dress and she wore exactly that.

Her strapless Marchesa strapless floral brocade dress brings out her golden complexion.

I love the print, the ruffled bodice, and her pink suede Sergio Rossi heels which perfectly complement the dress.

We’ve already seen this dress worn by the designer Georgina Chapman.

Photocall

For her photocall look Kristen wore a lilac Rebecca Taylor silk tank dress with a bejeweled bodice.

She teamed her dress with the same Choo’s she wore at the premiere.

Malin’s Nicole Miller dress has a geometric print bodice with a black high-waist skirt which makes her look about a foot taller.

The Nicole Miller dress was paired electric blue Sergio Rossi platforms.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Kristen Bell In Marchesa, Veronica Webb In Christian Siriano & Iman In Donna Karan

Congratulations for picking Kristen Bell in Marchesa as your winner for Best Dressed this week, because I couldn’t separate Veronica Webb and Iman.

Had you guys picked one of them I would have picked the other, but as Kristen was your winner I was stuck.

Veronica pulled off a very stunning Christian Siriano gown – one of my favourites from New York Fashion Week – whilst Iman turned back the clock – or just reinvented it – wearing a sparkling deep purple sequined Donna Karan plunging gown.

Looking at Iman I think we all worked that bit harder in the gym this week.

She really does get better with age. Cheesy line, but oh so true in this case.

Thanks for your votes.

“Couples Retreat” LA Premiere

After being in Australia to promote “Couples Retreat” Kristen Bell walked the red carpet at the LA premiere gives us typical LA glamour wearing a gorgeous Marchesa Spring 2010 dress.

The embroidered baby blue strapless dress had a chiffon detail draped around the dress, which then fell by her side.

The actress opted for champagne satin Christian Louboutin’s, a silver bracelet and a classy side swept updo to complete her look.

No question she is up for BDOTW.

I’m so grateful to Malin Akerman for wearing one of my favourite looks from the Resort 2010 collection.

The funny girl opted for this Thakoon ensemble consisting of a sunshine yellow twisted bustier paired with a nude ruched skirt.

I would have been totally in love with this look had it not been for the grey Aldo heels which leave me undecided as to whether I love ’em or hate ’em, but I’m thankful they’re not black.

Her stunning silver pearl cuffs are by Miriam Haskell.

Kali Hawk wears the Altuzarra Fall 2009 runway version of the dress I had hoped to see on Paula Patton yesterday.

I much prefer this version, its sexier, bolder and looks nothing like a bin liner.

Jason Bateman, who stars in this movie walked the red carpet wearing Dolce & Gabbana with his beautiful wife Amanda Anka.

She wore the same nude Dolce & Gabbana dress which Penelope Cruz wore in Cannes this year, paired with Lucy Liu’s favourite Jimmy Choo Idol platform sandals.

Social Events Of The Week

“Precious” New York Premiere

I wish Paula Patton has opted for the metallic version of this Altuzarra Fall 2009 dress. It has more of a wow factor.

Her winklepickers were also a very bad choice.

Never again will I defend Mariah Carey in the ‘boobie’ debate.

Mariah has had some bad looks, but this has to be the WORST.

She look so incredibly tacky and has obviously been inspired by Amanda Bynes because she only wears LBDs lately.

The only thing that deserves a mention are her Jimmy Choo Billie Lizard-Print sandals

2009 Clinton Global Initiative Dinner, New York

Looking like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth Naomi Campbell look so sweet wearing a Issa Spring 2010 asymmetrical black and white print dress.

Naomi walked for the Issa Spring 2010 show, so she was obviously very taken with this adorable dress.

2009 VH1 Hip Hop Honors, New York

Eve walked this red carpet sporting the very same hairstyle as Rihanna.

She wore fingerless black leather gloves to go with her Helmut Lang Resort 2010 black leather and bondage jersey dress.

I love everything about the look excluding the heels.

Why wear such an interesting sexy dress, if you’re going to pair it with office heels?

“Good Hair” LA Premiere

For this event Eve wore a chocolate brown Charlotte Ronson Deco beading pleated dress.

I love the neckline, her pink lips and the fact that she didn’t wear the runway belt.

The dress is better off without it.

Nia Long sparkled wearing a silver batwing plunging blouse paired with champagne mini shorts.

Her make up flawless and show is her cute bob.

Montblanc Paris Flagship Boutique Launch

Eva Green gives me that old Hollywood glamour that I never tire of.

She wore an aqua Alberta Ferretti gown with draped detailing to accentuate the waist.

Such an elegant look from one we expect to always look so dramatic and gothic.

I love her tousled updo.

Brian Reyes Appearance At Neiman Marcus, LA

Rachel Bilson supported her long time friend Brian Reyes when he made an appearance at Neiman Marcus.

She kept her look very casual wearing in denim cut-offs, a black blazer, and white tank.

Her accessories were more colourful as she carried a scarlet red Jimmy Choo Blythe Tote, and the same leather boots we have seen on Sienna Miller.

“Couples Retreat” Australian Premiere

This is quite an interesting look for Kristen Bell.

We’re so used to seeing her in unstructured laid back looks, but this time she opted for a sleek Preen Peplette technical crepe dress paired with Jimmy Choo heels.
