Who Wore Alberta Ferretti Better? Lily Allen or Eva Mendes

Back in December 2008 we got a first look at the new improved, grown up Lily Allen.

She sported shiny new hair extensions and she looked very sophisticated wearing a stunning teal chiffon fringed dress from the Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 collection.

The singer was attending PR guru Matthew Freud’s Christmas with a stellar guest list including Guy Richie, Sir David Frost, Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber, David Furnish, Guy Ritchie and Jemima Khan.

During Venice Film Festival Eva Mendes was the guest of honour at the “Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans” Party which was hosted by designer Alberta Ferretti.

Eva wore the same fringed dress with nude peep-toes.

As sexy as Eva looks, I loved Lily transformation and I think it’s the best she has ever looked so she wins for me.

The Q Awards

Pixie Lott looked adorable wearing a Gucci Fall 2009 black and silver dress, with black feathered detail on the shoulders.

She opted out of the runway belt, which actually works much better for her.

Surprisingly I don’t mind the tights here.

It’s been a very long while since we last saw Corinne Bailey Rae on the red carpet – February 2008 to be precise.

She’s bounced back from her grief to return to the red carpet looking sensational wearing a black and forest green striped Moschino Cheap & Chic Fall 2009 dress with black ankle strapped heels.

I love the dress, but I’m so jealous of her hair.

I wish mine would blow-out like that.

I’m not a Lily Allen fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I do love the new shag.

I’m going to the hair salon later today, so I may take this picture along for inspirational.

I also like Lily’s simple look in which she wore a long-sleeved ivory beaded dress with black leggings.

She completed her look with YSL sculpted platform pumps.

Sophie Ellis Bextor and her husband Richard Jones walked the red carpet together, as they often do.

Sophie wore a black Dolce & Gabbana velvet and satin dress with voluminous shoulders which we’ve seen on the red carpet before.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin Eugenie heels and a snake-print clutch.

As always Sophie oozes class and sophistication.

I can deal with Fearne Cotton’s Olivia Rubin embroidered tulip peplum dress, but her leopard print ankle boots are just hideous.

Amy Winehouse attended with her god-daughter Dionne Bromfield.

Amy seemed to be in good spirits showing her new…pink Preen dress.

My…hasn’t she grown since being out of the spotlight.

Runway To Sidewalk – Lily Allen In Marc Jacobs

Lily Allen looked like a modern day ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ wearing Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 florescent pink coat.

She was spotted wearing this coat as she left Cindy Crawford’s Omega Constellation 2009 party at the Almeida club in London last week.

Her florscent pink hooded coat ensured she got the attention of the paperazzi, unlike some stars who like to hid behind sunglasses at night.

She teamed her coat with Chanel bag, as one would expect.

I don’t about you guys, but I ADORE her in this coat.

Behind The Scenes On Lily Allen’s Chanel Coco Cocoon Campaign

In this picture of Lily Allen it would be easy to assume that the singer was shooting the Chanel Resort 2010 campaign, as she’s wearing a red jacket from that collection.

She is actually being shot by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel’s Coco Cocoon campaign.

In the behind the scenes video from the Coco Cocoon campaign, the singer poses with ‘just got out of bed’ hair and a sexy red pout.

These images are in stark contrast to the lady-like images we have already seen from the black and white campaign.

2009 GQ Men Of The Year Awards

Sporting longer locks which were swept to the side, Lily Allen was named “Woman of the Year” and the “2009 GQ Men Of The Year Awards” in London last night.

The face of Chanel “Coco Cocoon” bag collection walked the red carpet wearing a black sheer double strapped Chanel Resort 2010 gown.

Had Lily wondered what that extra piece of material was for on the front of her gown, she’ll wonder no more when she sees her picture in the papers this morning.

Many of you are horrified that Lily is the face of Chanel, and when she ruins a perfectly wonderful gown like this I have to agree.

Freida Pinto makes a vast improvement from her last outing, which lets face it wouldn’t have been too difficult.

I love that she took a risk with this Christopher Kane black layered dress, but the hair is a bit too prim and proper for such an edgy look.

The actress pairs her dress with Rupert Sanderson Khyber cutout sandals.

I would’ve much rather seen Freida wear something more colourful, but I think she just pulls this off.

Louise Redknapp also opted for a shortened Christopher Kane Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

Her mesh dress with black velvet trims was paired with YSL Trib Two heels and Bottega Veneta clutch.

Katherine Jenkins appears to love the Victoria Beckham dress collection as much as the designer herself, as this is the 2nd VB dress we’ve seen her wear.

This time she opted for violet Giral strapless shot silk dress.

I’m guessing Katherine likes this collection so much because the dresses caters for those with a larger bust.

When I tried on a strapless dress from Victoria’s Spring 2009 collection I could barely fill the bodice.

The only way I recognised that Gemma Arterton was wearing Louis Vuitton was by her clutch and heels.

For some reason the LV pizazz is lost on Gemma, and this ruffle collared jacket suddenly becomes quite ordinary.

I just feel like raising the collar, its not meant to be so flat.

Victoria Hesketh aka Little Boots was one of my favourites at this event wearing a Josh Goot multi coloured printed ruched mini dress.

The surprising feature is that the back of the dress and sleeves are plain black.

The singer completes her look with an Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch.

Pixie Lott opted for a bedazzling Collette Dinnigan Spring 2009 mini dress coved in diamanté embellishments.

Ankle boots and studded cuffs complete the look.

We first saw this dress worn by Taylor Swift.

Much like Leighton Meester’s MTV Movie Awards Emilio De La Morena dress, Alexandra Burke’s black and white mesh Emilio Pucci dress is quite cheeky.

I’m really scared to see what this dress looked like from the back.

A turtleneck? In yesterday’s soaring heat?

I feel hot just looking at Kelly Osbourne wearing this Jasmine di Milo’s Fall 2009 dress.

Dita von Teese will be full of admiration for Kelly Brook’s waist reducing dress.

The pink rubber printed Atsuko Kudo Couture dress appears to have a built in corset to give Kelly an hour glass shape.

I bet she gave off a sexy wiggle when she walked in this dress.

Even though Eva Mendes was the “big star” at this event I was more impressed by people like Little Boots and Kelly Brook for giving us something new.

Eva wore a stunning maroon shimmering gown.

The colour was sublime on her, but the wow factor was missing. Eva can do this kind of look in her sleep.

Daisy Lowe opted for a space-aged look, which she paired down with black pumps.

Rachel Stevens hair and make-up is quite outstanding. I love the transformation maybe the newlywed decided to spice up her image.

Her LND with a voluminous skirt is oh so cute.

Tamara Ecclestone wore a striking Preen black and white lightening-print bandage-style dress paired with black ankle boots and a matching clutch.

Elizabeth Hurley’s strapless but dress is cute enough, but why I’m I so bored?
