Who Wore Lanvin Better? Audrey Tautou or Lucy Liu

I love both of these ladies so this was always going to be a difficult one to judge.

Audrey Tautou first wore this Lanvin Fall 2009 draped detail dress to the LA premiere of “Coco Before Chanel” back in September.

The dress looks great on her and I love that she’s kept the jewelry simple.

I’m sorry to say that the hair is way too fussy for me. I like that her hair is up but I would have preferred something more sleek.

Lucy Liu wore this dress recently to the “Art Of Progress” World Premiere of the Audi A8 in Miami.

For me Lucy always looks so chic on the red carpet and here she gets it right again.

I love her choice of shoe and think the shape of the platforms work really well with the symmetry of the dress.

I would like to have seen her hair off her shoulders though.

It’s a close call but Lucy get my vote.

This dress is available to buy now from My Theresa.com & Matches Fashion.

‘The Art of Progress’ World Premiere of the New Audi A8

Lucy Liu holds the joint 2 position in my affections alongside Thandie Newton, so it’s always a pleasure to see her on the red carpet.

On this occasion she wore a black Lanvin drape detailed belted dress which she makes look uber chic.

I love how she swept her hair to one side to show off the drape detail.

This is why I love Lucy, she thinks of the little details some – Monica Cruz – wouldn’t consider.

Her look is paired with a black clutch, and YSL heels.

This maroon dress with cut-out details could’ve been quite disastrous, but Christina Ricci makes it work as she smoulders on the red carpet.

In saying that I’m not so crazy about the shoes, but thankfully that they are not ankle boots.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lucy Liu In Monique Lhuillier

On Monday I was pretty sure I was going to vote Cheryl Cole in Atelier Versace as my Best Dressed this week.

On Wednesday I then changed my mind and was certain Blake Lively in Marchesa was going to be my Best Dressed this week.

Then on Friday Lucy Liu swept me off my feet wearing Monique Lhuillier.

I’m sure many of you had the same late change of heart, as you voted for Lucy too.

Many said the that gown was so fabulous that it was impossible for Lucy to go wrong. I disagree because this dress could have come off looking very prom-like.

FashionLover said it best when describing Lucy as floating on cloud.

Thanks for your votes.

Runway To The Irene Diamond Award Gala – Lucy Liu In Monique Lhuillier

Lucy Liu arrived at the “Irene Diamond Award Gala” held at the Lincoln Center in New York last night looking absolutely amazing.

The actress wore a strapless Monique Lhuillier Resort 2010 white gown with thin black piping and a black ribbon tied to her waist.

As usual hair and make-up is flawless and she completed the look with a YSL Y mail clutch.

I think we’ve found a real challenger for Blake Lively this week.

“Dear Lucy, I had a vision of red carpet perfection, and it is all that you’ve given to me.”

Social Events Of The Week

10th Anniversary Woodstock Film Festival Launch Party, New York

Lucy Liu, you I love you more than most but this BCBG Max Azria Fall 2009 dress does nothing for you.

I don’t like the colour nor the shape.  It looks restricting like a straitjacket.

I will however compliment you on your Krocoa black patent clutch and dove grey peep-toes.

The Wonderbra Party Edition Launch, London

I only had to look at those fine embellishments around Dita Von Teese’s bust line to recognise that this black fitted skirt suit is by Dior.

The perfect silhouette for our porcelain princess.

Style360 Fashion Week Closing Party, New York

I’m quite surprised how much I like this chocolate brown embellished Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2009 bandage dress.

She paired the dress with the perfect pair of strappy sandals.

NSF, The Human Society, And The GQ Magazine Benefit, LA

With her boyish crop Ginnifer Goodwin flashed us a smile wearing a leopard print Escada Fall 2009 button down dress with a fold-over detail, paired with black satin Brian Atwood “Starlet” pumps.

The lengths those Kardashian sisters will go to outdo each other sets a new low in attention seeking.

Khloe Kardashian who I believe is set to get married to her boyfriend of 5 mins this weekend, arrived at this event wearing sheer black sweater dress, which exposed her bra.

Seriously is it that hard to realise a nude bra will show up under a black dress such as this?

I’ve been on the fence regarding thigh-high boots for a while now, but Khloe has totally killed any desire I may have been secretly harboring.

Her Christian Louboutin Supra Fifre 120 thigh-high boots are so ‘Pretty Woman’.

“Par Coeur Gala” for Association Make A Wish with Tony Parker, Paris

Eva Longoria’s purple strapless dress neither excites nor disappoints.

It’s on-the-fence OK.

Gucci and Windsor Smith Honor Dr. James Orbinski and Dignitas International, New York

Camilla Belle opted for a navy blue wool kilt dress with buckle detailing down one-side.

Her look is paired with Gucci midnight blue platform heels and grey Gucci clutch.

2nd Annual ACM Honors, Nashville

I have grouped Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler together because they are equally tragic.

Seriously ladies what happened to you?

Did you lose Naeem Khan and Georges Chakra’s number?

Lucy Liu’s Obsession – Jimmy Choo Idol Platform Heels

Of all the celebrity obsessions Lucy Liu has the most serious addition to her Jimmy Choo ‘Idol’ platform heels.

Who can blame her as they’re exquisite. The nude Jimmy Choo platforms heels have a crossover strap with buckle fastening, cut out sections on the front, a peep toe and a contrasting black panel on the heel.

We first spotted Lucy wearing them back in November to the Alberta Ferretti LA store opening party, and again just recently when she attended the Swarovski Crystallized Concept Store Opening last month.

The thing about her heels is they give the actress the added height she wants plus – as you can see – they complement many colours from red to to pink to black to blue.

Net-A-Porter.com discount sister store Outnet.com are currently selling these heels at a 50% discount from £440 to £220.
