28.04.09 In Her Closet

In Lucy Liu’s Closet – Alberta Ferretti Fringe Dress


Lucy Liu was one of the many stylish stars, who turned arrived at the Alberta Ferretti LA store opening last November.

She looked divine in one of the stand out pieces from the Spring 2009 collection, wearing a Alberta Ferretti fringed shift dress.

The teal fringed cocktail dress, has a polka dotted satin layer underneath, a fringed layer.

Lucy added more detail to her dress, with jeweled embellishments on the shoulders, and a black waist belt. Her look was complete with a Roger Vivier clutch, and tan platform heels.

You can buy this dress from the Net-A-Porter.com US site for $1,375, or the international site for £645/€840.

Runway To "National Gay and Lesbian Force 2009 New York Leadership Awards" – Lucy Liu In Giambattista Valli


Lucy Liu wore a Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 sheath dress to the National Gay and Lesbian Force 2009 New York Leadership Awards this week. The dress hugely modified from the dress which was presented on the runway.

Modifications from the runway, are something a few of us frown upon, but I can hardly blame Lucy Liu for taking the modified/safe version of this silk crepe dress, with a tulle accents on the bust and skirt.

The version she picked was right for the occasion. It was dignified, and she looked stunning in her black version with smaller tulle accent on the bust.

This is one case in which the change was for the better, as I don’t know who could pull off the runway version.

Who Wore 3.1 Phillip Lim Better? Lucy Liu or Rachel Bilson


Two of the most well dressed women in Hollywood, wore this very interesting navy 3.1 Phillip Lim dress. I love the white origami-style folds on the waist and skirt, giving it a delicate edge.

One of my many girl crushes, Lucy Liu, looked very stylish wearing the navy Lim dress, when she attended Phillip Lim’s Fall 2009 show during New York Fashion Week.

She completed her look with a pair of black YSL Tribute pumps, and a stack of gold bracelets.

Rachel Bilson wore the same dress a few days later, when she lent her support for a good cause at the Jergens and Skin Cancer Foundation’s Glow In The Dark event in LA.

As much as I love Lucy, Rachel wore this dress much better.


After searching the web, I could only find this version of the Phillip Lim dress. This dress has the white fold details around the neck too. You can purchase it from Browns Fashion for £665/€715.36/$946.16.

Lucy Liu For Vogue China April 2009


Lucy Liu graces the cover of Vogue China’s April 2009 edition. She is wearing one of those cute mini dresses from Roberto Cavalli’s Spring 2009 collection, with the skirt that kicks out at the back.

This issue is full of fantastic colours, so the bright yellow and green colours on the cover, is a perfect why to start this Spring issue. Magdalena Frackwiak’s shoot is the most colourful and is truly an outstanding editorial by Solve Sundsbo.

As much as I love the cover, I also love her Balmain shot. Mostly because the dress looks so much better without that large silver belt.




Her shoot was by Mario Sorrenti.

Social Events Of The Week

“American Character: A Photographic Journey” Launch Event, New York

Lucy Liu has swapped her black YSL Trib Two’s, for a grey suede pair, which we saw Victoria Beckham wear recently.

Lucy’s grey heels worked with the feathered details on her Rachel Roy Fall 2008 dress. The pleated neckline is really interesting.

This is not your average red carpet dress, which is what I love about Lucy, she’s not afraid to take a risk.

Mena Suravi opted for this mocha Christian Siriano Fall 2009 one-shouldered mini dress, which she wore with very fierce strappy heels.

March Of Dimes 34th Annual Beauty Ball, New York

Vanessa Williams wears a well worn Alexander McQueen Fall 2007 strapless chiffon green gown. Both Jessica Alba and Mary J Blige wore this back in 2007.

Vanessa gives her dress some shape, with a studded belt from the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2008 collection.

Does this woman age? She is so flawless.

Fergie debuted her new brunette do, which I really like on her.

Her dress is cute, but those Jimmy Choo heels are fierce.

“Fast & Furious” LA Premiere

Michelle Rodriguez is surprisingly wearing a dress. This is a very rare occasion indeed.

The dress gives the illusion of nudity, but it has an underlay covering the lace details.

This is a very brave choice, as we know flash blubs could have exposed more than we wished to see.

Jordana Brewster’s pink Burberry dress is simply divine. I adore the colour, the draping on the skirt, and the peek-a-boo bodice.

She completes her look with Jimmy Choo Corsica nude gladiator heels.

“Race To Witch Mountain”, LA Premiere

Carla Gugino wore a bright yellow Michael Kors dress with gold accessories including Christian Louboutin heel, and gold Jimmy Choo clutch.

Everything about this look is perfect, excluding her hair ‘do. I have never been a fan of hair plied on top like that, because it reminds me of a pineapple.

AnnaSophia Robb wore a purple Nicole Miller criss-crossed haltered dress.

A very cute dress, for the young actress.

Lucy Liu & Michelle Obama Kick Off The Clear Belt Trend


Just last month we were marveling at the genius of Lucy Liu’s clear belt, which she wore with her pink Lanvin dress to the 2009 Film Independent Spirit Awards last month.

The belt gave Lucy a nipped in waist, whilst giving more shape to her dress, whilst not ruining the draping effect.

We should expect this to now become a trend, as Michelle Obama wore a Sonia Rykiel clear belt with her Michael Kors dress, and Dear Cashmere cardigan on the recent cover of Oprah’s O magazine.

Many of you asked me where you could get a clear belt from when Lucy wore it, and I still can’t find one anywhere. Give it a month or two, I am sure we will see plenty in stores, thanks to Mrs O.

Update: Sydne found a clear belt with black piping on French Connection’s US site & Anissa found one by Steve Madden.
