Runway To “Love Ball” – Leona Lewis In William Tempest

Leona Lewis performed at the “Love Ball London” event in London hosted by Natalia Vodianova and Harper’s Bazaar this week.

The British singer is determined to shake off the “boring” tag by trying add a bit of sexy edginess to her look.

At this event she wore a copper William Tempest Spring 2010 one-sleeved gown with a padded shoulder.

I like that Leona is experimenting with fashion, but I do not like this gown on her as it doesn’t flatter her figure and the bodice is ill-fitting.

Her edgier looks don’t feel natural at all but there is hope. Rihanna started out wearing bubblegum pink Herve Leger dresses and look at her now.

*Sings* “It will all get better in time.” I hope.

Leona used this event to show off her new tattoo which runs from the nape of her neck to the middle of her back.

If she shaves one side of her head I will totally give up on her.

Runway To 2010 Elle Style Awards – Leona Lewis In Alexander McQueen

Best Black Award
Leona Lewis walked the red carpet at the 2010 Elle Style Awards wearing a black Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 dress with a keyhole detail.

Unlike Claudia Schiffer and Claire Danes, she opted to break up the black by adding nude heels and a dash of red to her lips.

Even though we’ve seen this look before on Leona at a book signing last October, I still really like the look.

On this occasion she adds more accessories to the look.

It feels like she’s got more attitude and it also feels like she’s in character.

I love the hat, but I may have lost the fingerless lace gloves.

Runway To ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ Presentation – Leona Lewis In Stella McCartney

Oh no.

Leona Lewis attended the Harper’s Bazaar presentation held at the Casino de Madrid last night in Spain.

The first thing I that came to mind when I saw her was, “You can’t pull this off”. A line delivered by Christina Applegate to Jennifer Aniston in “Friends”.

The caped crusader wore a black Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2010 dress, with tights and black pumps.

To complete the look she piled her hair high on her head and added bright pink lipstick.

From looking fabulous at the Brits, Leona does a complete 180.

Although I’m loving the change in direction from the predictable uninspiring gowns she used to wear, there’s nothing I like about this look.

She doesn’t even come close to pulling this off. As hard as she tried.

Runway To 2010 Brit Awards – Leona Lewis In William Tempest

Leona Lewis walked the red carpet at the 2010 Brit Awards with an attitude I’ve never seen from her before and I LOVE it.

It’s about time she brought out the diva.

The singer look PHAT – Pretty Hot And Tempting – wearing silver futuristic William Tempest Spring 2010 asymmetrical one-sleeved mini dress.

I love those bubble gum pink Stella McCartney heels, as they add an unexpected pop of colour to her look.

To be picky I would say she could have done without the cuff, but overall she was the best dressed at this event.

“Avatar” LA Premiere

Do you hear that?

That’s that sound of another ball being knocked out of the fashion ball park by Zoe Saldana.

I’m love her Versace Spring 2010 mini chain dress more than the runway version.

The white feels more modern in comparison, plus her dress fits her better than the model.

I like that she opted for Brian Atwood gold “Maniac” pumps, instead of the Spring 2010 Versace heels which are Shakira’s current obsession.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. What a fantastic year she’s having.

Audrina Patridge was my second favourite on this red carpet.

Her sea green Rue du Mail Spring 2010 ensemble is very sophisticated for The Hills star and I especially love the yellow Prada clutch and Alexander McQueen silver heels she paired with this look.

I must say I’m shocked that Audrina is channeling this brand, but she totally rocks it.

Michelle Rodriguez’ hair is way out of control for my liking, but the fact that she’s wearing a pretty Ina Soltani gown which looks gorgeous against her olive skin is enough for me.

Baby steps.

Sigourney Weaver walked the red carpet wearing a stunning black sequin wrap dress with white strappy sandals.

She used to occasion to promote her Life magazine cover.

So very elegant.

I make that two for two for Leona Lewis.

This is a hopeful sign that her corset days are firmly behind her.

This heavily embellished silver gown is very Beyonce circa 2004, but I like it.

Social Event Of The Week

2009 New York Variety Screening Series “A Single Man”, New York

I like the black pants Julianne Moore wore with her Balanciaga Fall 2009 blouse and lace bandeau, but I would’ve preferred the runway grey on her.

The grey is less heavy.

X-Factor Runners Up At Gatwick, London

X Factor runners up Stacey Soloman and Olly Murs made an appearance at Gatwick Airport today as part of the airport’s Christmas celebrations, which gave passengers the chance to sing to win at trip to see the Northern Lights – hopefully not on British Airways.

Stacey wore a bordeaux Temperley London Alexandria embellished silk tunic with cream peep-toes, which we recently saw on WAG Amanda Carrington.

12 mins 50 secs and counting.

“Did You Hear About The Morgans?” New York Premiere

Elisabeth Moss wore a Luella corseted jacquard mini dress from the Fall 2009 collection with black pumps.

Not my favourite look from her.

I really expected Sarah Jessica Parker to bring it at the New York preimere of her movie, but I was sadly disappointed.

At the London premiere she braved the elements wearing a L’Wren Scott mini dress, but on this occasion she kept it very simple with a chiffon dress with a leaf detail.

I don’t hate the look, but I just expected a bit more.

I do however love her Nicholas Kirkwood python cut-out platform heels.

I love this grey dress on Cynthia Nixon.

That draped detail is so subtly sexy.

Her silver peep-toes are a bit special too.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Woot woot. Not a corset in sight.

Leona Lewis appears to have weaned herself off wearing those darn corset belts.

I wonder how she’s holding up going cold turkey.

The vegan singer looks gorgeous wearing black jeans, a cropped jacket, a striped top, faux leather thigh-high boots whilst carrying a Stella McCartney chain-embellished faux leather bag.

Zoe Saldana wore a look by L’Agence which included a L’Agence Jersey scoop-neck top, white ultra skinny jeans and a grey blazer.

I love it when stars dress down and get it so right.

Social Events Of The Week

“Friday Night with Jonathan Ross” London

Reese Witherspoon was in London this week to meet MPs at London’s House of Commons to talk about domestic violence issues, as part of her role as honorary chairwoman of the Avon Foundation.

Whilst in London she took time out to visit the “Jonathan Ross Show” which is tape on Thursday but aired on Friday.

Her lace dress could be a modified dress from Stella McCartney’s Resort 2010 collection, which she pairs with bold red lipstick and cute Stella McCartney mesh heels.

She’s glowing here. I just love this look.

“The Young Victoria” Los Angeles Premiere

Emily Blunt wears a short and sassy black and white print flutter sleeved Marchesa dress.

The black ribbon is a nice touch, the tights I can live with but I’m not so crazy about her heels.

“Invictus” LA Premiere

I love the texture of Michelle Monaghan’s silver one-shoulder RM by Roland Mouret dress.

The voluminous hips are flattering rather than disguising, and I love her accessories including her Diego Dolcini heels and statement necklace which really brings this look to life.

BAM Belle Reve Gala With A Performance Of A Streetcar Named Desire, New York

Cate Blanchett opted for a grey strapless Armani Prive dress with a lace overlay, paired with black pumps.

Even without the wow factor, Cate still looks great.

I would kill for those stunning earrings.

19th Annual Beat The Odds Awards, LA

Zoe Saldana plays is safe wearing a navy blue Alaia dress paired with a Alaia belt and black pumps.

This is a tad boring for me.

BBC 2 Gig, London

Immigration clearly didn’t get my memo.

Leona Lewis wearing corsets with everything is just not funny anymore.

The girl needs an intervention.
