“Home” LA Eco Garden Picnic and Screening

Redemption.

After a major blip at the MTV Movie Awards, Cameron Diaz is back in my good books, after she arrived at this event looking sensational wearing a Stella McCartney Resort 2010 dress.

You may remember just last week, Stella McCartney gave us a preview of this bold shouldered, sculptural hip dress, when she attended the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition Preview Party.

The white dress with black embroidered details, was paired with black pumps and black plexi bag both by Stella McCartney.

Ruby red lips, completed this simple, yet stunning look.

I’m getting a slight Gothic vibe from Charlize Theron, with the all black look, pale face and red lips.

Her black tank and black blazer, were paired with black lace cut out leggings from Stella’s Fall 2009 collection.

I’m not crazy about the look, but I don’t hate it either.

Liv Tyler can wear anything, and still look so fabulous.

This is a classic example were she just throws on a Stella McCartney tunic dress with champagne-coloured satin heels, and she’s instantly gorgeous.

She has simple make-up, just got out of bed hair, no accessories, no jewels…no fair.

Anjelica Huston works a aqua blue dupioni Stella McCartney Spring 2009 boyfriend blazer, with a all navy ensemble.

Normally I would frown at knee-high biker-style boots on the red carpet, especially in summer, but Daryl Hannah some how makes it work for her.

She could have worn thick black tights with her mini Stella McCartney dress, but she opted for sheer tights instead. Kudos.

Emily Deschanel wore a black leopard print t-shirt, black skinny trousers and grey pumps, for this simple youthful look.

Rachel Zoe would have styled her clients Cameron Diaz and Liv Tyler for this event, so she would known the dress code. But she opted to go against the grain, and wear a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 oriental-inspired kimono vest, with a feathered tasseled obi belt. Why? Because she can.

Her look was completed with navy silk cropped trousers, a black clutch and those YSL Trib Two’s.

Katharine McPhee also exuded a laid back casual look wearing a black silk dress, with a white blazer, black strappy sandals and beaded clutch all by Stella McCartney.

I adore that clutch. I need it in my life.

Rosario Dawson was elegantly chic wearing a in a navy dress with voluminous sleeves, and a cute bow for added interest.

Again, no accessories were needed, just grey pumps.

Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World

I know many don’t share my love for Michelle Obama style choices, as many of you are still reeling over her wearing a cardigan to meet the Queen of England, but I did sigh with admiration when I saw her at this event.

The First Lady wore a simple black sleeveless Michael Kors gown, with a Peter Sorenon corset, accessorizing with multiple strands of necklaces, and simple diamond studs.

She wore her hair pulled back, her poise was authoritative, yet she’s so incredibly charming.

I curse the stand being in front of her, because I think the most interesting part of the dress is the corset around her waist, which gives her dress very a defined shape.

Oh Mrs O….*sighs*

Kate Hudson, one of Stella McCartney’s Met Gala Angels on Monday night, arrived wearing a sexy ivory Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2009 suit, consisting of a herringbone jacket, trousers and silk blouse.

Her look was complete with her hair tied back loosely, and gold Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toes.

I would’ve loved to have seen Kate rock this suit without the blouse, but it won’t have been appropriate for this particular occasion.

I wish to thank Liv Tyler for restoring my faith in this particular Stella McCartney Fall 2009 lace cut-out dress.

On the runway it was grey, and the illusion was too milky to be considered an illusion.

I love Liv’s black version, which she playful poses in showing of her Cartier ring.

Time 100 Honoree Stella McCartney, is quite possibly one of the coolest chicks on this planet.

She was of course head-to-toe in her own pieces consisting of a black cotton t-shirt, black lace embroidered skirt, organza shrug and black strappy platform sandals.

The shrug and skirt are so divine.

Diane Sawyer’s look oozes sophistication wearing a black off-the-shoulder top, with a ivory and black striped skirt.

Jimmy Fallon arrived with his gorgeous wife Nancy Juvonen.

She looked amazing wearing a Marchesa one shoulder navy gown, with a silver embellished asymmetrical neckline.

You may remember Georgina Chapman – the designer of this dress – wore it to the Metropolitan Opera last year.

Designer Vivienne Tam quite shamelessly, but harmlessly uses this event to promote her self designed HP Netbook.

The designer complimented the background, wearing a red embroidered dress from her Spring 2009 collection.

Claire Danes gave us the cold-shoulder with her black jersey dress, with cut-out shoulders.

M.I.A. was at this event, looking quite muted by her standards.

She wore the celebrity must have Alexander Wang suede and leather motorcycle jacket, under a Preen Line black dress. What…no sneakers???

05.05.09 Best Dressed

2009 Costume Institute Gala – Best Dressed Part 2

This is how you make a Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 dress work.

Kerry Washington only slightly modified the dress from the runway, but it still keeps it edge, it’s still sexy and sassy. Despite this being a very strong piece, Kerry still shines through. This look doesn’t feel forced.

She was my joint best dressed of the night.

The actress is wearing the same Fall 2009 Louis Vuitton heels as Leighton.

Georgina Chapman, looking this gorgeous is just too easy for you.

The Marchesa designer is wearing one of my favourite pieces from the her Fall 2009 collection.

This scarlet duchess satin embroidered dress with a bow detail was the jewel in the crown of her collection, and just made Best Dressed for me 3 way tie.

What is it about Kate Hudson and gold gowns, that seems to always work so well?

The actress looked spectacular wearing a gold sequined embroidered backless keyhole Stella McCartney gown, with a bronze hard box clutch.

Stella herself looked fantastic wearing a self designed black lace embroidered long sleeve plunge-neck jumpsuit, with black satin pumps.

This Gothic-like look is not what I would have expected from Kate Bosworth, and because it’s different I really like it. Bruce Willis seems to like it too.

The actress wore a Stella McCartney black long sleeve lace and silk gown, with marcel waves, and red lips that really pop.

Liv Tyler completed Stella’s Angels, by wearing a navy bead embroidered plunge neck Stella McCartney gown, with navy platform pumps.

The sophisticated elegance she is oozing, is simply breath-taking.

I was excited to see Marisa Tomei, and she didn’t let me down.

The actress continues to make great style choices after awards season, wearing a vintage Adrian ivory crepe gown, with a intricate embroidered detail cascading down the front of the gown.

An ivory clutch, matching heels, and a floral hair accessory complete the look.

No one should be surprised that Renee Zellweger is wearing a strapless Carolina Herrera Fall 2009 gown. Herrera’s muse is nothing but consistent with her look.

What’s surprising is that the gown doesn’t appeared to be modified from the runway, and she’s also sporting a ponytail, which is not exactly clear in this picture.

Kristin Dunst wore something similar to this Chanel Spring 2007 Couture navy gown, to the 2007 Oscars, but she didn’t quite have the poise, and confidence to pull it off, like she did in this gown last night.

The embroidered details are divine.

Claire Danes glows in her stunning two-tone asymmetrical Armani Privé gown.

When Agyness Deyn evokes old Hollywood glamour like this, it’s hard to hate.

Her metallic silver Burberry gown only elongates her already tall frame.

Her white gold and diamond pave Bvlgari necklace compliments her gown perfectly, plus she has a yellow gold tourmaline, emerald and diamond ring.

Rachel Bilson opted for something sexy, young, short and fun, wearing a ruched green Bally by Brian Atwood dress, with Bally python slingbacks.

Lake Bell’s androgynous works for me.

Dude looks like a lady wearing a black tailored suit, whilst carrying a Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.

For half a second, I thought she was Penelope Cruz.

Surprisingly safe for Katy Perry, I would have expect her and not Leighton Meester to be the wildcard for the night.

Her Tommy Hilfiger silk cobalt blue halter gown, is very sexy and elegant on her, and I adore the colour.

The cuff has a Woman Woman feel to it.

Eva Longoria’s black wore an incredibly sexy Diane von Furstenberg dress, with an open back and keyhole front, but the necklace feels a bit heavy.

I was about to say that Dontalla Versace didn’t modify her dress for once, but I notice that her Versace Fall 2009 aqua blue gown, doesn’t have the side split like the runway piece.

Cindy Crawford has not age a day in 20 years.

The Uber model arrived wearing a cobalt blue Versace Fall 2009 gown, with safety pins, and a thigh high split.

All her accessories matched her dress, and so did her smoky make-up.

I wish Allegra Versace had worn something more colourful, but I do like the construction on her Atelier Versace Spring 2009 mini dress.

As Marc Jacobs was the chair of this event, I was interested to see which Marc Jacobs piece Anna Wintour would wear. Instead she opted for a white and black trimmed Chanel Spring 2009 Couture gown.

I’m glad it’s something new, despite it feeling quite familiar.

Ciara wowed in a black and white backless Emilio Pucci gown, with embellished details going down the side.

Ivanka Trump looked like a fairy princess wearing a custom blush tulle Brian Reyes floret gown, with her own Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry, a Judith Leiber clutch, and Christian Louboutin ‘Bow T Dorcet’ heels.

If I was skilled enough in photoshop, I would have etched out Amber Rose’s tattoo, because it ruins everything great about this look.

She didn’t go crazy, as I expected her too. Had she worn something like Leighton, I wouldn’t have been surprised.

The sexy silhouette, and the ravishing red colour, it what made me fall in love with this gown.

I have been going back and forth about Mary-Kate Olsen’s Christian Lacroix Fall 2007 Couture gown since yesterday, which is why I have posted it last.

Is it too costumey? Is she too short to pull it off? Is it too crazy and ott?

And today, I have decided the answer is no to all those questions.

The gown is outstanding, with the metallic lace and silver-embroidered bustier-basque, plus tiered ruffled skirt. I think she pulls it off quite nicely.

Social Events Of The Weekend

The New York Times Fashion Week Photo Diary, New York

Bijou Phillips caught my eye wearing a chartreuse Zac Posen Trickle halter dress.

Her metallic accessories worked well with her backless dress, which had a large ruffle detail cascading down the front.

That strand of hair is the only thing stopping this look from being perfect for me.

Eva Mendes opted for a streamlined Calvin Klein Resort 2009 white crepe de Chine pleated sheath dress.

Her Louboutin’s maroon pumps were an interesting choice, with her jewels and clutch being golden.

Liv Tyler broke up her black and white look with aqua pumps.

When Liv finally removed her Stella McCartney blazer, she revealed that her floral Some Odd Rubies dress, had a open back, with a sexy lace panel.

Fergie Shoe Collection Promotion At Nordstrom At The Grove, LA

I do like Fergie’s darker locks, but I really do miss the blonde.

For her collection presentation, the singer/shoe designer wore a cerulean Gucci Spring 2009 shirt dress, with flap pockets, leather waist band, and drawstring hem.

Her Gucci cuff, worked well with the gold snaps on her dress, and her look was completed with her self designed ‘Pepper’ gladiator sandals.

“Monsters Vs. Aliens” Press Conference, LA

This navy blue dress is very typical to Reese Witherspoon’s style.

Social Events Of The Weekend

“Streak” Screening, Miami

We had fabulous weather this weekend, and again today in London. Demi Moore’s dress keeps that Spring-time feeling going wearing a fabulous bright yellow sleeveless dress.

She’s still a fresh faced and gorgeous as ever.

“Broken Embraces” Madrid Photocall

Penelope Cruz in wore a tomato red Versace Pre-Fall 2009 long sleeved dress, that is passable for a photocall, what I loved were her Christian Louboutin heels.

What’s the big deal? It’s the detail on the heels. The gold plated heel is carved with an interesting design.

Burberry And GQ Celebrate Burberry The Beat For Men, LA

Liv Tyler wears a sheer dress/camisole under a camel cardigan of almost the same length.

Wearing a feathered headband, Mischa Barton opts for a tame rocker look.

Her black leather pants, and Temperley London leather jacket, is contrasted by wearing a very feminine silk ivory and black Temperley London Spring 2009 blouse.

Her black and white heels are by Charlotte Olympia.

Russell Simmons Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation Art For Life, Miami

Kim Kardashian continues to shrub up nicely wearing a beautiful petrol blue strapless Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 gown.

Debut Of The Witches Fall 2009 Collection

When I first saw Mischa Barton in this dress with the strappy back detail, it instantly reminded me of the black Narciso Rodriguez dress Charlize Theron wore on Letterman last year.

Unfortunately, this look is ruined by the tights and shoes. Why dare to go nearly backless, if you aren’t going to show off your legs?

Launch Of Carrera Vintage Sunglasses

Taylor Momsen continues to baffle me. Her look doesn’t suit her at all. She needs to have serious words with her stylist, because this wannabee Debbie Harry look is comical.

I missed the days when teen stars were wholesome and looked their age.
