“L.A. Candy” Book Signing, LA

Returning to her natural roots Lauren Conrad signed copies of her book “L.A. Candy” By Lauren Conrad for fans at the Grove yesterday.

Sporting a familiar hairstyle the former ‘Hills’ star wore a satin black mini-skirt, black Louboutin’s and a tie dyed batwing sleeved blouse.

It is me or does Lauren seem sincerely happy?  I guess not having to film the Hills is a welcome relief for her.

Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen Premiere, Sydney

Isabel Lucas split from her co-stars to promote “Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen” in Australia this week.

Whilst Megan Fox was dazzling the crowd in a bright fuschia pink Armani Privé dress, the Australian actress opted for a black embroidered Marchesa Fall 2009 jumpsuit.

Eh??? Jumpsuit I hear you say. Surprisingly this is a jumpsuit or a playsuit as I like to call the short versions.

On Isabel it’s hard to appreciate the embroidered detail because her playsuit has a black lining the runway version doesn’t have.

Tights, Jimmy Choo Tahiti glitter peep-toe pumps and a black headband completed the look.

Headbands will never been the same after Paris Hilton overused them during Cannes Film Festival.

‘Coco Avant Chanel’ Australian Premiere

Lara Bingle opted for one piece from the Chanel Fall 2009 collection to attend this premiere.

Her black bouclé jacket had white and black ruffled cuff detail, but thankfully not the white collar.

I don’t think the collar would have worked with her casual look of jeans and YSL ankle boots.

Carol’s Daughter Hand And Foot Spa, New York

Rihanna attended this opening wearing a very smart ensemble.

She teamed a sexy figure hugging slate grey A.L.C Twisty dress with a tailored Preen Hawk wool blazer and cute polka dot peep-toe heels.

It’s such a shame her wild hair is such a distraction from all that’s good about this look.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Jada Pinkett-Smith looked outstanding wearing a figure-hugging khaki Dolce & Gabbana strapless bustier dress with metallic skyscraper heels.

Jada’s body looks amazing and this dress full appreciates her stunning figure.

It looks like she has eased up on the weights which I’m very thankful for.

Celebration Dinner Honoring 2009 Los Angeles Film Festival Keyote Films, LA

Here’s another Dolce & Gabbana dress, this time it black and worn by Scarlett Johansson.

I love the ruched detail which runs down the front of her fitted dress and the cute puffy shoulders.

Gold satin peep toe pumps complete the look.

Hopefully we’ll see her wearing more colourful dresses in the future.

“Bruno” Paris Premiere

For some reason Isla Fisher’s reminds me of a mermaid in her strapless sea-green embellished Julien McDonald dress.

I think this is one of her worst ever red carpet looks.

The dress is looks like something you could pick up in a market plus her hair and make-up are just awful. Hugely disappointed in her.

Runway To Photoshoot – Lauren Conrad In Moschino

Lauren Conrard was seen in West Hollywood on Friday looking fabulous for a photo shoot with Harper’s Bazaar.

She was wearing a brunette wig, which I totally love as it really brightens up her face. I hopes she considers this colour for a permanent look.

She was seen carrying many Marc Jacobs bags on her shoot which will fool you into thinking she was wearing Marc Jacobs, but she was actually wearing an embellished jacket from Moschino’s Fall 2009 collection.

Dark navy jeans and lusty worthy heels complete the look.

Social Events Of The Week

Martini “Stay Beautiful” Launch Party, London

Thandie Newton, is the new gorgeous face of Martini, and she hosted a party in London this week to celebrate.

In my eyes, Thandie Newton can do no wrong. I don’t think I have ever said a bad word about her as she’s total perfection every time she steps out.

She wore a beautiful black vintage dress with lace detailing, which was trimmed with gold.

Her sleek updo, Louis Vuitton clutch, and gold strappy heels complete this stunning look.

Best Dressed of The Week contender for sure.

“The Hangover” London Premiere

Heather Graham shows off her curves in a figure-hugging blue asymmetrical Michelle Jonas dress, with a gold ring detail on the shoulder.

As soon as I saw it, I thought of Mariah Carey for some reason.

I think it’s safe to say that Heather isn’t wearing any underwear with this dress, because she looks to be smuggling raisins, and that side split is daring low.

Heather red carpet looks are getting more and more risky as she promotes this film, which is a good enough indication for me that the movie can’t be that good.

A gold cuff completes this look.

“L.A.Candy” Book Launch Party, LA

Lauren Conrad shows off her golden glowing tan in a black 3.1 Phillip Lim mini dress and black Louboutin’s.

Can’t wait to see what this girl does next.

Graduate Fashion Week 2009 Gala Show, London

When I picture Mark Fast’s creations, I see them on people like Tilda Swinton, Chloe Sevigny and Roisin Murphy.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wouldn’t have come to mind, and this is why.

She makes this red knit Mark Fast Spring 20009 dress with a fringed detail look really tacky, and dare I say cheap.  A look like this need someone with lots of personality to pull it off. Susie Bubble would totally work this look.

The only thing that stops this look from begin a total disaster are her Giuseppe Zanott gladiator ankle boots.

01.06.09 Best Dressed

2009 MTV Movie Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
This is the impact I wanted Cameron Diaz to make, but instead that honour goes to Sienna Miller.

I love the sea green colour of her Swarovski-encrusted Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 dress.

The length is perfect to show off her pins, and the shoulder pads are subtle enough not to draw any Balmain comparisons.

The Brit actress carried a silvery Chanel clutch, and wore pair gorgeous Nicholas Kirkwood gold heels, to complete this stunning look.

I Don’t Follow Red Carpet Rules Award
If we expected Kristen Stewart to wear a cute pink mini dress, with silver strappy sandals, we were wrong.

She hit the red carpet wearing a Yigal Azrouël Fall 2009 red and black dress, with a cross cross detail on the sheer yoke, and a wide black belt.

I can imagine her being wrestled into this dress, and her stylist compromising on the Converse sneakers, but she totally rocks this look.

Best Black Award
Leighton Meester took a risk at the Costume Institute Gala, which didn’t pay off for me, but this edgy cut-out Emilio De La Morena Spring 2009 dress totally works.

This interesting dress has peek-a-boo parts, sheer panels, folds, and cut-outs, which Blair Waldorf wouldn’t approve of, but totally love.

She completes her look with Brian Atwood Brie purple suede ankle boots.

Risk That Paid Off Award
Taraji P. Henson certain got into the spirit of this fun awards ceremony, wearing a black and white strapless printed Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 bustier dress.

The part French maid, part Chinese porcelain inspired look is definitely daring, and with her fun-loving personality she totally pulls it off.

I love how she plays up the ruffled detail on the back of her skirt, and her punky spiky new ‘do.

Moving Out Of Her Comfort Zone Award
This Moschino Fall 2009 red and navy floral print sleeveless dress with a ruffled hem, seems a little out of Lauren Conrad’s comfort-zone, which I really appreciate.

It feels a bit dark and mysterious, which is complemented with dark red lips, and black strappy booties.

I only wish she had pulled her hair back, to show off the floral shoulder detail.

Best Use Of Colour Award
I love to see bold bright colours on the red carpet, which is why I love Vanessa Hudgens peach satin Max Azria dress.

The dress is very grown up, but she injects her youthful glow and enthusiasm, to make this a perfect red carpet look, which she pairs with Jimmy Choo shoes, and a Nancy Gonzalez bronze clutch.

I really glad she didn’t go full on boho, with a printed maxi dress, which we’ve seen many times from her.

Hate The Hair, Love The Dress Award
I love Megan Fox’s black and gold Dolce & Gabbana strapless brocade cocktail dress, which she had shorten. It really suits her dark, mysterious persona, plus it shows off her toned figure.

She wisely kept accessories to a minimum, and added a bit of spice via her Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

The biggest downsides are her hair, overly orange glow.

Best Theme Award
At first I hated Ashley Greene’s hair, but then I realised how much it worked with what appears to be a 40s housewife theme.

The hair works with her alluringly form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana floral print dress, with a beautiful, yet subtle voluminous skirt.

A neon yellow clutch, and bold red lips, add a touch of bright colour.

The Kate Beckinsale “This Is Not The Oscars” Award
I was really surprised to see LeAnn Rimes wearing such a formal gown by J.Mendel to the MTV Movie Awards.

She looks beautiful, she really does, but she’s a little overdressed.

Most Vanilla Award
Miley Cyrus opted for a very soft look for this event. I would’ve expected something with a lot more attitude, but she looks lovely in her pale pink cowl neck Moschino Cheap & Chic dress, which had a ruffled detail, going down her back.

The only hint of the wild rock wannabee Miley, was via her rings and bracelets.

Best Re-Run Award
I love Ashley Tisdale’s purple leather Elise Øverland dress, and the accessories she picked really punch up the look, especially those lust worthy Paul & Joe Sister heels.

We’ve seen this look before on the red carpet, but as Ashley wears it so well, that all is forgiven.

Surprisingly Not Predictable Award
I would have expected 3 things from Audrina Patridge.

1. Something low cut
2. Her black Alexander McQueen Bow Clutch
3. Her Balmain studded heels.

She blows that out of the water wearing a loose fitting paillette covered Joey Tierny Couture dress, with a dove grey Alexander McQueen clutch, and cream Louboutin heels.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Shoes Award
Keke Palmer’s look was almost perfect. I really loved her coral embellished Elise Øverland dress. It’s young, it’s fun, it sparkles, and it summery, but those grey booties lose her many points.

Stand Out Award
Malin Akerman stood out the most, because she is the only one who opted for pants, wearing a crisp, white Dolce & Gabbana suit, with a pale blue corset.

Her hair was sleeked back to complete this sophisticated look, which she didn’t over accessorize.

Most Summery Award
Yes Paris Hilton needs a new clutch and shoe combo, but there’s no denying her vibrant vest for spring and summery colours.

I love her cute coral Jenny Packham Spring 2009 strapless mini, with its ruffled skirt, and gold embroidered bodice.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun/Au Natural Award
Monique Coleman must have sensed when she looked in the mirror, that she would get ridiculed for her hair.  I admire her for ditching the extensions, and going au natural. I can’t see many others sporting this look.

Her Christian Louboutin Spartenvol Strass sandals complemented her silver and black spacey mini tutu dress, which you may all hate, but I will take this over a mini dress with tights any day.

She wanted to have fun at this event, and it shows.

US Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Issue Event

Woot woot. Taraji P. Henson makes a long awaited return to the red carpet, and she proves by wearing this vintage Emanuel Ungaro fringed flapper style dress, with Azzedine Alaia boots, that her awards season run was not fluke.

After wearing a gorgeous 3.1 Phillip Lim dress the other night, this white Camilla and Marc dress for some reason reminds me of loo roll.

Not a flattering look, and so disappointing as I was considering putting her on a pedestal.

LOVE Kelly Osbourne in this black and white striped dress. The volume on the skirt of her bandage dress is blowing me away.

Her look is complete with Gina heels, and a Swarovski clutch.

Garcelle Beauvais was wearing a gorgeous strapless jersey LWD from the BCBG Max Azria asymmetric dress collection, but I’m captivated by that stunning statement necklace.

Jordana Brewster is wearing a really nice draped Christian Dior dress, but there’s TOO much black going on for a party titled ‘Hot Hollywood Style‘.

The same kinda applies to Fergie, although her look has a very interesting and distinctive edge to it, with the leather vest, over a fringed DSquared dress.

My main criticism is the hair.

Fergie, please decide what colour you wish your hair to be. At present I see black, I see brown, and a touch of honey colour highlights. I admired the changed at first, but now it’s looking like a home colour kit gone wrong.

Estelle, we’re used to seeing you in edgy design no one else would dare wear, but you’re just not the maxi dress wearing kind.

Her dress Layla, is wore with a Juliette Jake clutch.

Like Halle Berry’s striped maxi earlier this week, Shanna Moakler’s white

Foley+Corinna maxi dress, with multi-coloured stripes screams summer vacation.

I do though admire her creativity, in trying to match her eye make-up, to the colours on her dress. It looks like she gave up after trying 3 shades, thankfully.

Eliza Dushku opted for black and white stripes in this Moschino dress.

The party’s hot, she so Hollywood, so it was only natural Paris Hilton arrived at this event.

She snugged up to her beau wearing a Junko Shimada two-tone mini dress, with a Chanel purse, and Trib Two’s. Her jewels are outstanding.

Martina McBride wears a black strapless Miu Miu LBD, with her wonderfully voluminous dark locks and a Yigal Azrouel statement necklace.

Meagan Good wore a barely there LBD, under a black leather jacket. Her yellow strappy sandals was the only dash of colour she added to her look.

With regards to what Annie Wersching is wearing, some might say this is more negligee than red carpet ready, I would just be thankful it’s not black.
