Finch & Partners’ Pre-BAFTA Party

What a welcome relief to see the gorgeous Thandie Newton back on the red carpet.

I’ve really missed her, and it looks like she hasn’t lost any of her style when she attended this Pre-BAFTA party wearing a navy silk Chanel Resort 2009 asymmetrical mini dress.

She wore her dress with embellished heels, whilst carrying a black clutch.

Perfect in every way.

Freida Pinto was also wearing Chanel, but her haltered ruffled mini was from the Spring 2008 Couture collection.

Of all the BAFTA Award attendees, Freida’s gown is the one I am looking forward to the most tonight.

Emma Watson completes the Chanel threesome, wearing a navy dress from the Fall 2008 Couture collection.

I love the dress, and the matching satin shoes, but I can’t help wishing she had adjusted that collar better, as it looks really awkward.

I will hope to see see a different type of hairstyle on Emma in the future. I feel like I’ve seen this look a thousand times before.

Amy Adams has had her Giambattista Valli phase, now she has moved onto RM by Roland Mouret. This is the second time in a row the gorgeous actress has worn one of his dresses, and it’s a perfect fit.

This silver dress has an asymmetrical hem, and an overshot shoulder, which she opted to fold down.

She completed her look with black peep-toes, and a satin clutch.

Penelope Cruz opted for warmth over style, as she covered up her black dress with a full-length coat, whilst sporting freshly cut bangs.

Anna Friel will have PETA on her case, after wearing a fur stole, with her black corset and maxi skirt look.

Lily Allen added a burst of bright red to this black/navy event. How very refreshing.

Runway To Sidewalk – Lily Allen In Chanel


With her head kept warm from the plummeting English temperature in a Prada fur hat, Lily Allen step out wearing jeans, a white vest top, gold ballet pumps and a Chanel Spring 2008 striped jacket.

She was seen popping into Radio 2, The Conran Shop, and USP Content.

It is quite clear that Lily has a love affair with Chanel, as she is always seen either wearing their clothes or carry their bags.


But on this occasion she is carrying a Givenchy Sacca Chain Handle Bag, which you can find on Barneys.com for $1,495.

Love the bag, not so keen on the hat.

16.01.09 In Her Closet

In Lily Allen’s Closet – Chanel Russian Doll handbag


Lily Allen was spotted leaving the Nobu Park Lane restaurant with her friend this week look very chic.

She was wearing a white Givenchy coat, a black Chanel dress and a black pair of Christian Louboutin heels.

Despite the white coat, my attention was fully focused on her cute Chanel handbag shaped like a Russian doll.

The bag is from the Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 Russian inspired collection, and was a gift from Uncle Karl.

This bag is due to go on sale around July, and will cost around £2,500.

Definitely a collectors item, and definitely on my wish list, despite the fact that it looks too small to fit my blackberry.

Runway To The GQ Men Of The Year Awards – Lily Allen In Dolce & Gabbana


The GQ Men Of The Year Awards are traditionally an all male affair, but tomboy Lily Allen showed off her girlie side, wearing a strapless beige and grey swirled Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2008 fur-print ballgown with a pale blue sash and matching train at the event, which was held in London tonight.

This was one of my favourite dresses from Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall collection, so I am glad someone with a lot of personality like Lily Allen dared to wear it.

I love the colours, and the volume of the dress. I would love to dress up in a gown like this and feel like a princess. *dreams*

2008 UK Glamour Woman Of The Year Awards Red Carpet

Hayden Panettiere unfortunately could bring the LA sunshine to this rain soaked event last night, but she did delight in this red empire-waist Moschino Spring 2008 mini dress, with an exaggerated double tiered flounce hem and cap sleeves.

She completed her look with a pair of bronze Christian Louboutin peep-toes.

The Giles Spring 2008 prom-esqe dress Lily Allen was wearing looks very cute, but is decorated with prints of a bleeding Bambi’s. Not so cute.

What is also not so cute is Lily’s hair. I mean is she for real?

Yes it matches her dress, but just does not work in the grand scheme of things. I preferred her dark roots.

She teamed her dress with a pair of multi-blue Louis Vuitton shoes.

TV presenter Alexa Chung opted for a Luella Spring 2008 peasant-style embroidered strapless minidress, with black booties.

Beth Ditto’s Matthew Williamson Fall 2007 dress could not be any louder, but I continue to applaud her for not taking the safe route.

Her gold gladiator heels are by Alexander McQueen.

Estelle wore a chiffon black LBD from the Kristian Aadnevik Spring 2008 collection, with the bust and waist emphasised with sexy leather details. She teamed the dress with a pair of leather Sergio Rossi black lace sandals.

Emma Bunton will never shake off that “baby” tag, but she is all woman in her black beaded J’Aton Couture gown, which had a plunging neckline and a wide patent belt.

The new mum showed off her new chic bobbed hairstyle.

Dannii Minogue also wore a J’Aton Couture gown. Her stunning white gown was beaded throughout.

Danni is either glowing, or she moisturized very well before leaving for this event.

Geri Halliwell channelled her inner glamour-puss in a blue embroidered wet-look gown, complete with a fur boa.

Not a look I would favour, but Geri makes it work.

Mel B was determined to be the Spice Girl who stood out, and did so in this fuchsia v-front gown by Jenny Packham.

The dress is loud and revealing, but I would not expect anything less from her.

Tamara Mellon of Jimmy Choo won Accessories Designer Of The Year wearing a forest green mini Balmain Spring 2008 dress.

Keeley Hawes who won, UK TV Actress Of The Year, wore one of the most one of the most spectacular dresses of the evening.

Her voluminous, corseted cream gown is just a artistic master piece. She teamed the gown with bronze shoes.

Kate Beckinsale was named Film Actress Of The Year and collected her award wearing a chocolate full-length halter-neck Herve Leroux gown, with her hair loosely tied-up.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the new face for Burberry, looks very elegant in her terracotta gown and fur boa.

Kelly Osbourne opted for a vintage embroidered gown, from her mothers collection.

Joanna Page, winner of Comedy Actress of The Year, wore a cute silk frilly butterfly print Matthew Williamson Spring 2008 dress.

Kimberly Stewart opted for a short purple satin tunic dress with Miu Miu heels.

With her Jimmy Choo Aster snakeskin sandals, Katherine Jenkins wore this Hervé Léger Color block bandage dress.

This is a huge change for Katherine, as we are used to seeing her in structured dresses or cute frilly dresses. I would have preferred if she had opted for a more wild and adventurous hair style to fit the dress.

Model Daisy Lowe wore a strapless squared tulip dress and red shoes, whilst her beau Mark Ronson, opted for a classic velvet tuxedo. They are so hip it hurts.

Ferne Cotton wore a black silk Moschino minidress with Jimmy Choo heels that had a fuschia platform and heel.

Britain’s Next Top Model judge Lisa Snowdon, wore a very interesting tuxedo-style mini dress.

Annie Lennox won the Inspiration Award and was very much the golden girl in her sequined dress.

Here are the Glamour Awards Winners in full:

Band Of The Year – The Spice Girls
Entrepreneur Of The Year – Kate Moss
Comedy Actress Of The Year – Joanna Page
Television Actress Of The Year – Keeley Hawes

Elle Style Awards 2008

Elle Style Icon winner Kate Hudson has been brightening up our red carpets since she arrived in London. She does not shy way in this white Derek Lam Fall 2007 keyhole gown.

She could have done without the jewels.

Best Actress winner Keira Knightley went back to Chanel last night, wearing a black dress from the Chanel Pre-Fall 2008 collection.

I love the brooch detail, but I hate the hair and I have been long over that pout.

Woman of The Year could have gone to no other woman but Kylie Minogue. She is such a survivor.

After a few mishaps in little known designers, she went back to the men who dress her best – Dolce & Gabbana.

This olive Grecian gown is from their Dolce & Gabbana Pre-Fall 2008 collection.

Lily Allen has worn Prada Resort 2008 two nights in a row now. I guess she loves their designs.

What I don’t love here is her hair. It is like something out of the 1950s.

UK TV presenter Alexa Chung looks so cute in this pink velvet Luella Spring 2007 strapless multi-tiered mini dress.

Naomi Campbell another Dolce & Gabbana faithful wore this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2008 strapless mini dress.

She presented Best British Designer to Jonathan Saunders, who showed his Fall 2008 in New York this month.

Roisin Murphy is head to toe in Givenchy Spring 2008. Her boots will no doubt have the Olsen sisters drooling.

Sophie Ellis Bextor wore this very interesting dress from Erdem Spring 2008 collection. On most people this dress would be very busy around the neckline, but as Sophia has a long neck it is not a problem for her.

Georgina Chapman always looks fantastic in her clothes. This jumpsuit is from her Marchesa Fall 2008 collection.

Katherine Jenkins is the first person I have seen in the this dove grey moon dress from RM by Roland Mouret Fall 2007 collection.

This dress hugs her curves beautifully.

Emilia Fox shimmers on a forties style full length sequined gown.

Jamelia is ALWAYS in Dolce & Gabbana. Unlike most stars who mix it up a little.

So bored of her.

Twiggy shocks me here in this gold sequined mini dress. But then I shouldn’t really be shocked as she is a style icon.

Naomi Harris opts for a satin orange mini dress with a black belt.

Kimberly Stewart has turned down the hooch, and is dressing more sophisticated these days and it really suits her.

Glad she stopped hanging out with Paris Hilton.

KT Tunstall looks like she missed the boat to audition for Bee Movie.

Agyness Deyn is wearing a lot of bright colours in this Henry Holland ensemble, the trouble is – as always – she is trying too hard.

Kelly Brook also opted for a full length Grecian gown in turquoise.



Bionic Woman
star Michelle Ryan wears a fuchsia pink silk gypsy style gown which for me is not working.
