“The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee” New York Screening

I see trouble ahead for the rumoured Victoria Beckham Collection Spring 2010 campaign girl.

In an interview with Allure magazine, Victoria Beckham said “Don’t have all your legs out and all your boobs out. Cover something up”.

Ooops Blake obvisoulsy doesn’t live by that rule, and why should she when she looks this fabulous.

The Gossip Girl actress looked stunning wearing a beautiful bow-fronted Marchesa Spring 2010 white embroidered blazer with black shorts.

J’Adore.  She can’t do wrong for me at the moment.

Sophia Bush was covered up wearing a Helmut Lang powder print dress, but that didn’t stop her looking any less fabulous.

I’m glad to see Sophia is not sticking to the obvious labels and trying something new for a refreshing change, as it helps her stand out from all the Hollywood starlet Herve Leger wearing clones.

Sophia and I obviously have the same taste, as I added this dress to my favourites this week.

Julianne Moore’s Viktor & Rolf Spring 2010 tuxedo jacket-like draped dress is soften without the sleeves.

I really like the modification, but if she was going to wear tights that thick she might as well have stuck with the original runway version.

Writer/director Rebecca Miller wasn’t about to be outdone by these actresses.

She also glammed for this screening by donning a very chic tailored Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 keyhole black dress with a red floral design, a high collar and gathered sleeves.

European actresses Marion Cotillard and Penelope Cruz seemed to be inseparable, as I couldn’t find a picture of them apart.

Cruz wore head-to-toe black, whereas Marion stood out by wearing a taupe dress with embellished details.

I much preferred Robin Wright Penn as a blonde.

I understand she wants to ‘wash that man right outta her hair’, but brunette was not the way forward for her.

What’s with all the drastic colour changes lately?  First McPhee, now Robin.

Also the Herve Leger dress isn’t really doing anything good for her.

Who Wore Vivienne Westwood Better? Marion Cotillard or Jessica Stroup

Marion Cotillard attended the premiere of ‘Public Enemies’ in London’s Leicester Square wearing a red satin Vivienne Westwood strapless bustier dress.

Her hair was elegantly styled into a beautiful quiff, whilst a black Stella McCartney Fall 2009 embossed faux leather clutch and black peep-toes completed the look.

90210’s actress Jessica Stroup was front row with Rihanna at Vivienne Westwood Spring 2010 show in Paris wearing the same dress.

Marion wins for me because I didn’t like how limp the bodice looked, or how overly creased Jessica’s dress was, nor the purple Brian Atwood Lola pumps she opted to wear with this dress.

Front Row At Christian Dior’s Fall 2009 Couture Show

I wasn’t surprised to see Tinsley Mortimer at this show.

The socialite wears a lot of Dior pieces on the red carpet and for this occasion she opted for a navy and gold halter neck silk top, with a matching sheer skirt.

The pop of colours came from her self designed yellow clutch and a her bubble gum pink nails.

In the absence of Dior queen Charlize Theron, I was looking to Marion Cotillard for the front row wow moment. It never came.

The actress arrived wearing an all black Dior look which I found to be quite dull.

Many of you were saying that Dasha Zhukova always has the same expression, well here you have a smile.

The editor-in-chief of Pop magazine looked extremely casual wearing a black tank top, striped skirt and black sandals to attend this show.

Don’t people dress up in couture to go to couture shows anymore?

Where’s Eva Green when you need her?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Marion Cotillard & Stella McCartney

I was quite surprised when Marion Cotillard took the lead in her Vivienne Westwood red dress, because I was certain you would all vote for the pink Dior dress.

I did consider Marion’s Dior dress too, but I dislike the wedges the more I saw them so instead I voted for Stella McCartney in her own Resort 2010 dress.

Even though it was a quiet week Stella stood out for me because her look was simple yet not redundant. Black but not boring. Chic and uniquely Stella.

It also helps that I’m totally in love with her Resort 2010 collection.

Runway To “Public Enemies” Paris Premiere – Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior

It’s been a quiet week on the red carpet, so we have relied mostly on Marion Cotillard to give us red carpet wow moments and she didn’t let us down last night.

The French actress looked stunning in a pink Christian Dior Resort 2010 dress at the Paris “Public Enemies” premiere.

Whilst most were concentrating on her strange choice of sparkling burgundy Dior wedges, I was drooling over her pink dress. The colour is absolutely perfect on her.

I love the not too revealing plunge which she decorates with multiple silver necklaces, and the way the tie at the front of the dress nips in her waist to give Marion’s tiny frame a gorgeous shape.

Glamorous back-combed hair, smoky eyes, neutral lips, and a python clutch added the perfect finishing touches.

Congratulations to Drew who sent me an email on Wednesday picking this dress for Marion which I added to my Red Carpet Wish List. It’s not the same colour, but it’s the same dress.

Looks like you got your wish Drew.  I hope Cate Blanchett picks mine.

Earlier in the day, Marion attended “La Fete du Cinema” cocktail launch in Paris wearing another dress from a French fashion house. This time it was Lanvin.

You can see that her dark grey Lanvin twisted neckline dress is a not too distant cousin from the Pre-Fall 2009 dress which was presented on the runway.

I love the way this dress just drapes so elegantly on her, especially the neckline which has an interesting gathered detail.

Studded strappy sandals was an interesting footwear choice for this sophisticated look.

Social Events Of The Week

“Public Enemies” London Premiere

Marion Cotillard looked stunning as the walked the red carpet in London tonight.

She’s back to that consistent form we saw during 2008 awards season and I love it.

Marion usually gives us Parisian chic, but on this occasion she gave us a flirty look wearing a racy red satin strapless Vivienne Westwood bustier pocketed dress.

Her hair was elegant coiffed into a beautiful quiff style, whilst a black Stella McCartney Fall 2009 embossed faux leather clutch and black peep-toes completed the look.

“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” Screening & Party, Miami

Isabel Lucas sported yet another headband for this screening. It’s very much becoming her signature look.

The Australian actress looks gorgeous is a lilac RM by Roland Mouret Zonda TTD mini sleeveless dress with a gathered detail on the front.

Black pumps complete the look which are a bit unimaginative, but the dress is so gorgeous I can almost overlook that.

Stephanie Pratt is really stepping up in the style department.  I guess those MTV cheques have finally cleared.

The Hills star wore a cute floaty French Connection blue and red dot dress with red peep-toes.

The one-shouldered mini dress has a sweetheart neckline and tiered frilly skirt.

Like her last time out it’s a case of great dress, shame about the bronzer.

22nd Annual ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards, LA

Before the BET Awards Alicia Keys attended this event wearing a BCBG Max Azria watercolour strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline and a flowing layered skirt.

Matching blue make-up, a silver necklace and matching clutch complete this stunning look.

36th Annual Vision Awards, LA

Ashley Greene opted for a very sophisticated look wearing a black and white ruched D&G dress with cute black pumps with a ruffled detail on the back of the heel.

She manages to look very mature, but not old nor old fashioned.

I love the glossy lips and the equally glossy hair.

Raise Hope For The Congo Event, LA

AnnaLynne McCord looked gorgeous in yet another impressive LBD by Eva Culture. She sure knows how to wow us on the red carpet.

I really adore her silver Rene Caovilla heels, such refreshing change from black and Christian Louboutin.

Opening of Harrods Summer Sale, London

Mischa Barton looks like she partied very hard the night before this event, because no matter how much eye make-up she plastered on I can still see the tell-tale signs.

Her look is what we’ve come to expect from her casual laid back style.

She wore a white shift dress with an embellished neckline plus a tan cross-body bag for that boho touch for which Mischa is best known.
