Runway To “The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus” LA Premiere – Lily Cole in Marchesa

Model/actress Lily Cole walked the red carpet last night at the AFI Festival for the LA premiere of “The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus”.

I’m not sure about this one.

As much as I love the Marchesa Fall 2009 blush pink dress with embroidered leaf details, the colour washes Lily out too much for my liking.

I feel like she’s cold, as there is no warmth here so I’m struggling to love this look.

I thought maybe it was the lighting, but after looking at various pictures that is not the issue.

What do you guys think?

Rome Film Festival Weekend Catch Up

“Viola Di Mare” Premiere

Maria Grazia Cucinotta was by far my favourite on the red carpet this weekend.

The stunning actress looked divine wearing an Armani Privé spiral gown which was embroidered with Swarovski crystals.

This gown is very similar to the Privé gown Sharon Stone wore recently.

Isabella Ragonese wore a beautiful dress with an unmistakable Missoni floral print from the Fall 2008 collection.

The grey and blue print dress had ruffled shoulders and an embellished detail cascading down one  side.

We don’t often get so see Roberta Armani on the red carpet, but she doesn’t disappoint wearing a Giorgio Armani Fall 2009 two-tone black on gold bustier dress.

Her brunette locks were swept to one-side, as she paired her dress with Armani accessories.

“Viola Di Mare” Photocall

I loved Isabella Ragonese’s Missoni dress, but I wasn’t crazy about her Isabel Marant Fall 2009 look.

I much prefer the runway colour combination.

“Up In The Air” Premiere

I wasn’t a fan of Elisabetta Canalis last red carpet look, but she does a complete 180 by looking spectacular wearing an Armani Privé Fall 2009 midnight blue strapless velvet gown, with a lighter blue satin bodice.

She opted to wear her sash around her neck rather than tying it into a cute bow as the look was presented on the runway.

George Clooney was decked out in Giorgio Armani tuxedo.

“The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus”

Lily Cole opted for a very familiar Dolce & Gabbana black corset gown, which looks amazing on her.

Despite seeing this gown many times in various colours, I’m not bored seeing it on Lily.

Rose McGowan toned down the sex kitten for a demure look despite the bright fuchsia colour of her Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Normally her looks are shorter, tighter and more revealing.

“The Last Station” Premiere

Helen Mirren was perfection personified – as always – wowing the crowds wearing a sleeveless gown with a large bow and diamond brooch detail.

She was easily my second favourite from this weekends looks.

Front Row @ Chanel’s Spring 2010 Presentation

Rihanna sent the paparazzi crazy wearing a white bustier and a tweed high-waisted Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 skirt with a multitude of Chanel necklaces that would put Mr T to shame.

Keeping her shades on through-out the show Anna Wintour style, Rihanna also accessorized with a black and red Chanel hand muff/bag.

I bet Rihanna was furious that Leigh Lezark beat her to this Chanel Fall 2009 black and white print leotard over leggings situation.

I can’t really call it a look now can I?

The scary thing is a lot of thought went into this situation because Leigh took the leotard from Look 39, pairing it with the leggings from Look 40.

Despite this being Chanel, you just wouldn’t would you?

Even if Uncle Karl promised you a life-time supply of large quilted bags in various colours the shame of this would haunt you for life.

I got a very strong case of  de ja vu looking at Claudia Schiffer.

Unlike the rest of the celebs who relaxed in the front row, Lily Allen was at the Chanel Spring 2010 show during Paris Fashion Week in a work capacity

She looked adorable as she performed a live set for the waiting fashionistas.

I would assume her black and gold sequined Chanel dress adorned with ostrich feathers was custom made, but it could be part of the collection.

The singer also wore two tone tights with Chanel Spring 2009 Couture ankle strap heels.

Runway To The “The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus” UK Premiere – Lily Cole In Chanel Couture

Lily Cole walked the red carpet in London last night for the UK premiere of her movie “The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus”.

The British model/actress/Cambridge University student looked so statuesque wearing a Chanel Spring 2008 Couture black and white tired haltered gown with a flower detailed neckline.

I’m not so crazy about the shoes, but everything else works for me.

I believe this would have been difficult for many to pull off, but being the tall and beautiful Lily does it with ease.

This is the second Chanel Couture look the model has worn during this promotional tour. She first wore Chanel Couture in Cannes.

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better? Cheryl Cole or Lily Cole

After her hike up Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of Comic Relief Cheryl Cole headed to 10 Downing Street to meet with Prime Minister Gordon Brown with her eight fellow celebrity climbers.

Cheryl of course stood out wearing an ivory knee length Alexander McQueen lace dress with tan  Rupert Sanderson platform heels, accessorized with a couple of simple bangles and coral Kenneth Jay Lane Coral droplet earrings.

Lily Cole wore the same dress with black and white strappy sandals when she attended a screening of ‘Time Bandits’ at The Electric Cinema in London back in June.

I can’t resist those coral earrings which add a pop of colour to her look, so Cheryl wins for me.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Victoria Beckham, Lily Cole, Kate Walsh or Stella McCartney

It’s not unusual for Victoria Beckham to be first when it comes to fashion. She was the first to wear these Stella McCartney ankle zip skinny ombre jeans whilst making her way through Heathrow airport earlier this year.

She wore them with her leather Balmain jacket, Loewe hat, Christian Louboutin’s and white Kelly Travel bag.

Model/actress Lily Cole wore the same jeans with a loose fitting dusky pink top and multi-coloured strappy heels to “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” Photo Call during Cannes Film Festival.

Kate Walsh wore hers with a sparkling Stella McCartney tank top during a photo call at the Monte Carlo TV Festival.

And finally the designer of these beautiful jeans – Stella McCartney – wore hers with a cropped jacket from her Resort 2010 collection to the presentation of her new collection at “The Corner” in Berlin.

This is a tough one, because everyone looks great minus Lily because I really dislike her shoes.

Stella wins this for me, as her look is the most effortless and most chic.

These jeans are available to purchase from Net-A-Porter international for £157.50/€206.50.
