Precious Screening At 2009 AFI FEST

What a difference a decent dress can makes to Mariah Carey, as she has a tendency to want to wear very tight gowns that can make her look very trashy.

On this occasion she wore a Zac Posen Resort 2008 black mermaid gown and I think this is the best we have ever seen her, despite the fact that the gown has already been worn on the red carpet earlier this year.

Hair and make-up are fabulous, and she doesn’t go overboard with the bling.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Paula Patton has great legs, so she shortened her Bottega Veneta corseted dress to show them off and this modification works really well for her.

I’m not as excited about her necklace, but I do love her Jimmy Choo ‘Revere’ strappy sandals.

I love Mary J Blige, but I’m not so crazy about her Emillio Pucci Resort 2010 gown as it’s doing nothing for her.

Olivia Wilde opted for a white RM by Roland Mouret Scirocco crepe pencil dress with an asymmetric neckline and cap sleeves.

Nude make-up and accessories complete this look.

Garcelle Beauvais looks incredible wearing a red hot asymmetrical dress with Christian Louboutin glittery peep-toes.

Mo’Nique and her husband Sidney Hicks walked the red carpet together as she glowed wearing a gold shimmering strapless dress.

Social Events Of The Week

“Precious” New York Premiere

I wish Paula Patton has opted for the metallic version of this Altuzarra Fall 2009 dress. It has more of a wow factor.

Her winklepickers were also a very bad choice.

Never again will I defend Mariah Carey in the ‘boobie’ debate.

Mariah has had some bad looks, but this has to be the WORST.

She look so incredibly tacky and has obviously been inspired by Amanda Bynes because she only wears LBDs lately.

The only thing that deserves a mention are her Jimmy Choo Billie Lizard-Print sandals

2009 Clinton Global Initiative Dinner, New York

Looking like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth Naomi Campbell look so sweet wearing a Issa Spring 2010 asymmetrical black and white print dress.

Naomi walked for the Issa Spring 2010 show, so she was obviously very taken with this adorable dress.

2009 VH1 Hip Hop Honors, New York

Eve walked this red carpet sporting the very same hairstyle as Rihanna.

She wore fingerless black leather gloves to go with her Helmut Lang Resort 2010 black leather and bondage jersey dress.

I love everything about the look excluding the heels.

Why wear such an interesting sexy dress, if you’re going to pair it with office heels?

“Good Hair” LA Premiere

For this event Eve wore a chocolate brown Charlotte Ronson Deco beading pleated dress.

I love the neckline, her pink lips and the fact that she didn’t wear the runway belt.

The dress is better off without it.

Nia Long sparkled wearing a silver batwing plunging blouse paired with champagne mini shorts.

Her make up flawless and show is her cute bob.

Montblanc Paris Flagship Boutique Launch

Eva Green gives me that old Hollywood glamour that I never tire of.

She wore an aqua Alberta Ferretti gown with draped detailing to accentuate the waist.

Such an elegant look from one we expect to always look so dramatic and gothic.

I love her tousled updo.

Brian Reyes Appearance At Neiman Marcus, LA

Rachel Bilson supported her long time friend Brian Reyes when he made an appearance at Neiman Marcus.

She kept her look very casual wearing in denim cut-offs, a black blazer, and white tank.

Her accessories were more colourful as she carried a scarlet red Jimmy Choo Blythe Tote, and the same leather boots we have seen on Sienna Miller.

“Couples Retreat” Australian Premiere

This is quite an interesting look for Kristen Bell.

We’re so used to seeing her in unstructured laid back looks, but this time she opted for a sleek Preen Peplette technical crepe dress paired with Jimmy Choo heels.

Toronto Film Festival – “Precious: Based On The Novel “Push”

Pre-Party

With her hair tightly pulled back Paula Patton was a vision of pure loveliness at this event wearing an Jason Wu cream draped dress with gold metallic dots.

The amazing dress is paired with a stunning statement statement necklace, a black belt and strappy sandals.

Mary J Blige becomes the 4th celebrity to wear Victoria Beckham’s Carmontelle grey pencil dress with a peplum at the waist and structured shoulders.

I’m really love this look on Mary.  She can go from ghetto fab, to chic quite easily.

Her look is paired with Michael Kors multi-buckle heels.

Have we gone back in time?

Mariah Carey’s ultra tight curly having me thinking back to her ‘Vision of Love’ video.

Another thing that hasn’t changed from then is her love for LBDs.

Press Conference

Paula’s second look was a liberty print Zac Posen Fall 2009 dress.

I love how she fills the dress more than the runway model and the tan pumps.

I think a belt sitting just above the ruffle detail would’ve made me love this look even more.

Mariah Carey and singer Mary J. Blige both worked dark tight long sleeved dresses, to show off their beautiful figures.

Social Events Of The Week

Sinupret For Kids at LA Shorts Festival, Hollywood

Scarlett Johansson channels her inner Jean Harlow looking divine wearing a cream Prada dress with nude heels.

I love how the dress nips her in at the waist and the details on the shoulders.

I’m still desperately missing her as a blonde, but I guess this colour is for her “Iron Man 2″ role.

“G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra” Berlin Photocall

It appears Mother Nature has declared war on Sienna Miller.

Firstly she got wet at the G.I. Joe London photocall. This time it rained during the Berlin photocall.

She just can’t catch a break.

Her Dries van Noten tapered pants are very similar to the Loewe ones she wore recently.   But on this occasion she opts for a simple KAIN Label grey pocket tank, a leopard print scarf with Chloe heels and still looks fabulous.

How does she do it?

An Evening With Dita Von Teese And Special Guests, Hollywood

Whether she’s wearing Couture or a long polka dot Moschino gown, Dita von Teese always gives us 100% perfection.

Those pouty red lips against her porcelain skin is very much her trademark look. Seeing her with any other colour lipstick would totally shock me.

106 and Park at BET Studios, New York

Mariah Carey proves she’s not all gowns and cleavage as she wore denim capri pants and a simple black tee for her TV appearance.

OK it’s not her best look, but just check out her Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Are you drooling yet?  I bet Beyonce is.

“Jennifer’s Body” Comic-Con Party, San Diego

Urgh…Megan Fox started off so well promoting Transformers.

This Gothic vibe really doesn’t work for me.

So many of you said that she was a passing phase and that phase appears to be officially o.v.e.r.

“The Wendy Williams Show”, New York

Jordin Sparks continues to promote her new album “Battlefield”.

Leaving the “Wendy Williams show” she looked adorable flashing her trademark megawatt smile whilst wearing a hot pink Bebe studded Trapunto strapless embellished top with a black satin skirt and silver strappy sandals.

Social Events Of The Week

Oceana, Nautica & Vanity Fair Celebrate World Oceans Day, New York

Amber Valletta wore a strapless silver Oscar de la Renta Resort 2010 dress, which was recently presented.

The dress has an interesting origami detail on the skirt, which very much reminds me of the strapless dress Myleene Klass wore during Cannes recently.

This is a beautiful sophisticated dress, so I really don’t like how Amber has opted to toughen up her look with those black peep-toes booties.

I’ve been wondering what is it about Estelle that’s so different. She seems to be glowing lately. Then I realised that she has taken off her braces.

I love the swirly print mini dress, it has a very 60s vibe to it, but her lilac clutch, and blue bangle ruin this look for me.

The saying goes, “Before you leave the house, take one thing off.” In this case it should have been two.

Her look is paired with tan Jimmy Choo Prize t-bar sandals.

3rd Annual American Institute For Stuttering Benefit Gala, LA

I love this silver and black beaded Marc Bouwer Spring 2009 halter dress, but not on Emily Blunt.

The dress looks spectacular on the runway, because it is considerably shorter. Emily should have opted for the shorter length.

Simon Aboud Book Launch Party, London

Looking stylishly dishevelled Kate Bosworth wore an interesting painted Josh Goot Fall 2009 top, which looks like it should belong in an art gallery.

She paired her work of art with a simple black mini skirt, a gold purse and Nicholas Kirkwood booties.

8th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, LA

Angie Harmon looks amazing wearing a Ikat printed chiffon Kaufman Franco wrap dress.

I love the leather straps, as it reminds me of my favourite Michael Kors dress, which has the same detail.

Is it me or does AnnaLynne McCord just get hotter with every red carpet appearance?

This girl really knows how to make things interesting. I should be frowning that she’s wearing a simple black sheath dress, but the back detail and her elegantly coiffed hair really make this a sizzling look.

Keep it coming AnnaLynne.

Oceana Celebrates World Oceans Day, LA

January Jones’ look is ultra soft and feminine in this lemon dress.

I’m sure you will have noticed that the braided belt details on the dress, matched the braids in her hair to complete this Grecian inspired look.

I adore her make-up.

Apollo Theater’s 75th Anniversary Gala Concert & Awards Ceremony, New York

Mariah Carey please give us something new. I feel like I have seen this type of Roberto Cavalli dress on her a million times before.

2009 Fresh Air Fund Salute To American Heroes, New York

Michelle Williams wore a demure ivory one-shouldered 3.1 Phillip Lim dress, with an asymmetrical gold detailed bodice, which complimented her gold Jimmy Choo Frost mirrored leather sandals, and the trim of her YSL box clutch.

She looks divine in her heavenly dress.

Mariah Carey and Michelle are worlds apart, when it comes to dress sense.

After a few events in which Mariah stepped up her game, she kinda takes a few steps back in this white column Georges Chakra Couture gown.

The figure-hugging strapless gown, simple and beautiful, but that embroidered floral panel I really dislike, as it reveals her underwear.

Her gown is paired with Christian Louboutin Amelissa Platform Sandals.

“Star Trek” Press Conference And Photo Call, Mexico

Zoe Saldana’s ivory Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 leather dress, doesn’t have the same wow factor as so many of her other ‘Star Trek’ looks, but she still looks pretty damn fantastic.

I love how her hair is styled, and her natural make-up.

Brian Atwood black patent ‘Maniac’ pumps, complete this sophisticated look.

“The Hangover”, New York Screening

Molly Sims works a tailored look, pairing a Rag & Bone Spring 2009 metallic silver jacket, with cropped black trousers, and a white tank.

Sergio Rossi elasticated strappy ankle sandals, and a vintage necklace add more credit to this edgy look.

“Blood: The Last Vampire”, South Korea

Jeon Ji-Hyun really shouldn’t have worn thick black tights, with her cute white Chanel off-the-shoulder knit dress.

Talk about ruining a look.

Massimo Ferragamo Cocktail Party, New York

Lake Bell smolders in a red, high neck Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2009 dress, with black accessories.

W Hotel Grand Opening, Florida

Blake Lively keeps her twins covered – for once I hear you say – wearing an angelic white ruched Christian Cota dress.

She looks great with her trademark wavy locks, and purple strappy sandals, which almost match the purple carpet.

LG Xenon Splash Pool Party, LA

Hayden Panettiere is still glowing with her perfect tan, and glossy hair.

The actress looks super-cute wearing a mint green chiffon dress, with strappy metallic sandals.

This look really shows off her softer side, with loose curls framing her face, and flawless natural make-up.

Dania Ramirez wears a Sunner “Florent” combo linen and cotton jumpsuit which I love, but I don’t like her choice of bubble gum pink heels with the look.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Jessica Biel goes for a low-key, yet still very feminine look, wearing a beige leather mini skirt, which she teamed with a silk navy cami.

She accessorized with an ornate Tom Binns ‘Dumont’ necklace, a Prada denim bag, and chunky Gucci Iman T-strap sandals.
