“Valentino: The Last Emperor” New York Premiere

Anne Hathaway’s white asymmetrical ruched Valentino dress is gorgeous from every angle. She looks outstanding.

After a so so awards season, this sees her return to her best.

Gwyneth Paltrow wore a black strapless Valentino dress, she has worn before back in 2003.

The dress is a fit for the occasion, but I am not wowed by it. Her hair and make-up is impeccable as always, and she completes her look with a stunning Chopard bracelet.

Claire Danes pistachio green Valentino Spring 2008 Couture cap sleeved dress makes her stand out, as this is the most sophisticated dress at the event.

It almost feels too sophisticated, but I would take more over less any day.

Selita Ebanks sure knows how to stand out in a crowd. The model arrived at this premiere, working the hell out of this Balmain Fall 2008 mini dress.

Talk about jaw dropping.

The very LBD has a lace overlay and stunning embellished details on the bust, shoulders and skirt. The sex appeal is amped up with zippers going across the body.

I am always grateful to Tinsley Mortimer for adding a burst of colour onto the red carpet.

If you are wondering were those colourful clutches she is always carrying are from, they’re self designed for her Samantha Thavasa range.

This particular apple green clutch, matches the green straps on her snake print Jimmy Choo Corsica strappy sandals.

Even a simple white shirt dress becomes a hot look for Padma Lakshmi.

I don’t think I have ever seen Agyness Deyn so muted.

The model wore a black velvet Marc Jacobs Fall 2008 hooded dress. I think this is one of two pieces that ever made the red carpet, from that very questionable collection.

I think Lake Bell’s expression says it all. Bad choice of dress.

Coco Rocha seems to be opting for a softer look these days, since she took on presenting duties for Style.com. Last night she wore a Jason Wu Fall 2009 ensemble.

The wine sweater, printed skirt combo, with a statement necklace is beyond fabulous.

Daphne Guinness looks a little startled.

Is it because someone informed the Guinness heiress that she is wearing the same Gareth Pugh Spring 2009 dress which Beyonce wore to the MTV Europe Music Awards?

Her look is complete with Christian Louboutin platformed Mary Janes, and a black Azzedine Alaia belt.

Georgina Chapman wore a black sequined and feathered Marchesa Fall 2008 dress, under a gold and black fur trimmed coat.

2009 Frick Collection Young Fellows Ball

I’m drooling.

I really really really LOVE Lake Bell, and seeing her in this one-shouldered orange Monique Lhuiller Pre-Fall 2009 gown, with a floral appliqué skirt makes me melt.

The colour is outstanding on her, and the lack of make-up fills me with nothing but jealously. Life’s just not fair.

Ivanka Trump opted for a very dreamy beige Monique Lhuiller Spring 2009 strapless gown, that had a ruffled skirt, and a contrast sash tied to the waist.

The colour is so buttery against her skin.

Katrina Bowden wore an asymmetrical satin aqua draped gown, which had a knotted detail on the hip.

I’m not crazy about the half-up, half down hairstyle, but the gown looks fantastic on her.

Monique Lhuillier of course wore her own designs.

This strapless teal gown is from her Spring 2009 collection.

I feel like the dress is missing something. Maybe the lack of bling is throwing me.

Tinsley Mortimer is wearing the yellow version of the Christian Dior Spring 2009 dress, which Jessica Alba wore to the Film Independents Spirits Awards.

I love the dress, but I really don’t like her choice of clutch.
