Swarovski Crystallized Concept Store Opening

Striking her favourite head slightly tilted pose, Blake Lively looked stunning on the red carpet wearing a white Roberto Cavalli dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

I’m glad she opted for the white shorter version and not the runway version, as she simply glows in this dress.

The dress is open at the back with black mesh panels on the side of the dress.

Just got out of bed hair and black studded Manolo Blahnik Creo heels complete this sexy look.

Last time out many of you commented that Evan Rachel Wood was slipping back to her Dita von Teese “copy cat” ways, well this is a complete 180.

Evan wore a Gucci Fall 2009 ensemble consisting of a midnight blue check boxy jacket with matching cigarette pants striking quite a masculine stance.

She also wore a striped shirt with black/white check collar and black pumps to complete the look.

Dita who?

This is the second outing for Chloe Sevigny’s camel Chloé scallop edged short suit.  This time she wears it with a multi-coloured sequined top and strappy two-tone sandals.

Lucy Liu brightens up the red carpet – as she always does – wearing a bold red cape Paul & Joe dress with a matching patent belt.

Her look is contrasted with neutral accessories including a white Prada bag and nude Jimmy Choo heels.

I’m glad she didn’t opt for red lips as it would have been too obvious. Nude lips work beautifully here.

Runway To “Incognito Design Exhibition” – Lucy Liu In Giambattista Valli

Yesterday Lucy Liu arrived at the “Incognito Design” Exhibition Opening At The Whitney Museum in New York wearing a fantastically feminine Giamabattista Valli Spring 2009 cream strapless dress, with a heavily ruffled detail which sits on the bust.

I’ve loved this dress the second it was uploaded onto Style.com and since Lucy has worn many Valli pieces I was confident that she would wear this dress.

Unfortunately I’m not totally blow away as I thought I would be. She look gorgeous but I’m a bit disappointed by her hair.

A pony with a few strands framing her face isn’t quite the picture I had in mind. More like a classy updo.

Maybe I’m being overly picky.

A peachy clutch and bow-front Christian Louboutin heels completed the look.

Cameron Diaz Honored On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Cameron Diaz looked angelic as she was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday.

The actress wore a gorgeous white Oscar de la Renta dress, teamed with striking red accessories including a belt from the Oscar de la Renta Resort 2010 collection.

The gorgeous dress featuring intricate embroidery on the yoke and skirt.

Cameron dedicated the accolade to her parents, and was cheered on by a host of celebrity pals.

Which of course included TomKat.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes made an effort to be look super-cool in their casual looks.

Tom simply opted for a beige shirt and blue denims, Katie surprisingly wore a LnA top, Azzedine Alaia heels and a pair of ripped J Brand Zombie jeans, which nearly every A to Z lister has worn this summer.

Cameron Diaz’ Charlie’s Angel co-star Lucy Liu was also there to support her friend.

Lucy opted for a summery beige Max Azria dress with Jimmy Choo heels, gold leaf earrings and a golden clutch.

Matthew Williamson For H&M Collection New York Launch Party

Whilst we look forward to the second installment of Matthew Williamson’s H&M collection, he had a launch party in New York yesterday.

It was a great chance for us to see pieces from the new collection.

The party nautically-themed party took place on a yacht, and Matthew invited some stylish stars to toast his success.

Campaign model Daria Werbowy caught my eye the most, as she was wearing the same splash print sequin dress, which I purchased last week.

Selita Ebanks really gave us the wow factor, wearing an asymmetrical gown, from Matthew Williamson Spring 2009 collection, with peachy accessories.

In case you are wondering, she will be a contender for Best Dressed Of The Week.

Helena Christiansen gave us a mark 2 preview, as she wore a dress from the second installment of the Matthew Williamson for H&M collection.

She wore a sweet mini printed dress, with a belt, embroidered clutch and gold flat sandals.

Lucy Liu is normally so stylish, but on this occasion, I’m not excited about her choice.

She wore a black embroidered black tunic dress, with nude peep-toes. This is also from the second collection, but it’s not the right style fit for my Lucy.

Mary-Kate Olsen added a pop of colour with her loose purple jacket, over her asymmetrical LBD.

Her Matthew Williamson piece, was the blue studded belt, which I unfortunately couldn’t find in my size.

Alexis Bledel shunned the H&M affordable collection, and opted for a graphic print dress from Matthew Williamson Spring 2009 collection, with Sergio Rossi elasticated strappy ankle sandals.

Great choice, but I much prefer this dress with a belt, as worn on the runway and by Joy Bryant.

Here is a look as what we can expect in stores on May, 14.

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.
