9th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball

As promised here are the rest of the looks from the 9th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball.

As always Sophia Bush is giving me an A-list look.

The “One Tree Hill” actress looked breath-taking wearing a Lorena Sarbu gown.

The nude flutter sleeve beaded gown delicately caresses her curves, as she teams her look with a Judith Leiber gold clutch and stunning gold earrings.

Jessica Stroup opted for a black Azzaro gown with an exquisite beaded neckline.

With her hair piled up high Mila Kunis wore a dove grey RM by Roland Mouret Bora dress with Brian Atwood Marlo pumps.

I love the ruffled detail on her skirt.

New mom Rebecca Gayheart radiates in a Catherine Malandrino print asymmetrical gown with side draping.

Amber Riley would have stood out in a sea of nude and dove grey wearing a red strapless Dalia MacPhee Fall 2009 gown with a cascading ruffle skirt.

Maria Menounos wore the Alice + Olivia sequined bodice strapless dress which is becoming very popular with celebrities.

I love her silver strappy sandals.

Sporting lighter locks Ashley Greene looked gorgeous wearing a Lela Rose Fall 2010 pearl-beaded shift dress paired with Loewe bow clutch and dove grey heels.

Alice + Olivia Malibu Dinner

Actress Estella Warren posed alongside designer Stacey Bendet wearing that Balmain-esqe Alice + Olivia military jacket, which many of you found questionable when I posted the comparison earlier this week.

The jacket makes Estella appear very boxy, when we all know she doesn’t have that type of body so I’m not really liking this jacket on her.

Wooo ho ho ho. Tan much?

Denise Richards has literally cooked her skin in her attempt to have a healthy glow.  She’s seriously gone overboard.

It’s more body builder than beach babe.

The TV personality opted for a strapless Alice + Olivia Rigby tube dress with silver strappy sandals.

I would suggest a factor 20 the next time she decides to tan.

I’m yet to see anyone really convince me that thigh-high boots can work other than Stella McCartney.

Lynn Collins opts for a bright pink Alice + Olivia V neck dress with a tuxedo jacket.

I love the straight hair, which appears to be fully under control compared to previous outings, and I also love her rosy glow.

Maria Menounos is the ONLY one at this event to get her look right.

The TV presenter wore a poppy red Alice + Olivia Trina tunic dress with a large statement necklace which complemented her dress along with her clutch and funky heels.

“Inglorious Basterds” LA Premiere

If I pick up one more magazine or read one more blog stating that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are splitting up, I think I’ll tear my hair out.

What do these two have to do to prove how much in love they are with each other, other than mount each other on the red carpet.

Grazia’s headline today is “Angelina’s horror at Brad’s night with ex.” I’m sure you are rolling you eyes like I am.

Mr & Mrs ‘We’re Way Too Genetically Blessed’ put those rumour to bed – for now – looking very much in love on the red carpet last night for the LA premiere of “Inglourious Basterds”.

They were hugging, hold hands and his hand was place on her leather clad butt, as they whipped the crowds and paparazzi into a frenzy.

Sporting lighter locks and wearing minimal make-up, Angelina looked gorgeous wearing a black Michael Kors Fall 2009 black leather strapless dress which had a small pockets on the hips, with two tone Christian Dior heels.

This look reminds me of the sexy leather Versace dress Angelina wore to the Mr & Mrs Smith LA premiere back in 2005.

If the dress looks familiar, that’s because it’s the leather version of fuchsia pink dress Blake Lively wore to the CFDA Awards.

I love the picture below were Angelina and Brad Pitt are genuinely star struck to meet the legendary actor Sidney Poitier.

Diane Kruger was up against the mighty power that is Brangelina, but she didn’t fade into the background.

The star stole the red carpet wearing Atelier Versace backless dress.

Her Fall 2009 couture black silk satin mini dress was completely embroidered with black glass fringes finished in degrade of ruby, grenas, amethyst and sapphire coloured crystals.

Her hair was swept up as she paired her dress with a Versace clutch and heels for this breath-taking look.

Can she make it two for two for Best Dressed Of The Week?

Maria Menounos wore a beautiful Haute Hippie Fall 2009 peach dress with an asymmetrical detail decorated with a sequined panel, which I think looks very similar to a dress presented during the Missoni Spring 2008 collection.

Nude sandals and a complementary silver Nancy Gonzalez clutch complete her look.

Christina Ricci looked amazing wearing a red vintage Azzedine Alaia tight fitted dress covered in spots.

Striking a fierce pose the actress wore Christian Louboutin ‘Bianca’ pumps and carried a black leather clutch.

Is it me or is she glowing?

I’m loving that rich auburn hair colour.

Jessica Lowndes wore a cute paisley print sweetheart neckline mini dress with gold strappy sandals, but the dress seems very tight on her bust.

Silver and gold together make me cringe, so I don’t like her choice of clutch either.

Julie & Juila LA Premiere

Amy Adams looks stunning as always wearing a white RM by Roland Mouret Aphrodite dress with nude suede shoes.

I love the twist detail on the bodice, but unfortunately it exposes Amy’s nude bra.

Simple elegance is what we are used to seeing from Amy, and she doesn’t let us down.  Just a shame about that damn bra strap.

“Twilight” actress Ashley Greene shows off her curves wearing Brian Reyes sleeveless double stitch dress.

The figure-hugging white dress has contrast stitch and expose zippers on the front and back to give it a bit of an edge.

Ashley completed her look with a pop of colour via her red lips and orange clutch. Plus she wore what’s fast becoming her favorite heels – her Jimmy Choo Verity sandals.

Meryl Streep only really dresses up for the big occasions, but I love this look for her vibrant red dress – she normally wears dark colours.

I’m not a fan of large bags on the red carpet. It gives me a feeling that Maria Menounos just arrived from work or the mall.

But in saying that the nude bag looks fabulous with her sexy strapless belted jumpsuit with a ruffled bodice.

Very Jenny from the Block.
