Social Events Of The Week

Paris Hilton Arrives In London

Apparently there were pink taxis all over London yesterday, which could have only meant that Paris Hilton was in town.

Paris arrived at her press screening of Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend, wearing a very cute pale pink silk chiffon Jenny Packham dress with silver crystal beading embellishment.

Her silver pumps were also embellished, and she arrived with a Fendi bag, and winter white coat with a fur collar.

Nokia 5800 Launch Party, London

Of course Paris did not have an early night. She attended this Nokia launch event wearing a cute heavily embellished halter dress by Thai designer Disaya, with matching two tone heels.

Here we see yet another interesting look from Lady Ga-Ga.

With her hair in her now trademark Minnie Mouse-esque bow, the singer wore a black ultra-tight mini dress, with a large latex bow on the front.

She partnered her look with hot pink heels, black Ray Bans and leather gloves.

Quite a tame look for her ;)

VV Brown stood out in a bright blue Ashish for Topshop sequined mini dress. She paired her dress with leggings and peep-toe lace-up ankle boots.

The singer’s hair was rolled up into a retro quiff.

G’Day Australia Black Tie Gala, New York

Nicole Kidman stood alongside director/friend Baz Lurhmann at the G’Day Australia black tie gala at New York Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

The actress wore an incredibly sexy black gown, with an asymmetrical neckline, and a very daring thigh-high split.

She surprisingly completed her look with a pair of neon orange heels.

Santa Barbara Film Festival

Penelope Cruz was presented with the Chopin Outstanding Performer of the Year trophy on Saturday night during the 24th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

The Spanish actress wore a black dress Azzedine Alaia sleeveless dress with black tights and black cut-out pumps.

The dress is cute, but the camera is unforgiving, as it exposes her flesh coloured satin bra underneath.

After a succession of unimpressive red carpet looks, I am starting to worry that she will not wow me at the Oscars next month.

Costa Book Awards 2009, London

Rosamund Pike arrived wearing a RM by Roland Mouret Zola sleeveless dress.

You may not be able to see from this picture, but the dress has a very heavily detailed nude shoulder straps, pleats on the hip, a fish tail style to the front of the skirt.

“Hedda Gabler” Broadway Opening Night After Party, New York

Mary Louise Parker wore an satin teal blue Carlos Miele Spring 2008 halter dress, with black heels and Ivanka Trump jewels.

More From The 2009 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Of the rest, Laura Linney was definitely the best.

I love the mellow yellow colour of her asymmetrical Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture gown, and the embellished waist. She looked outstanding.

Taraji P. Henson looked gorgeous in her J.Mendel Fall 2008 chiffon gown. It was quite dramatic, without going over the top.

She completed her look with a black satin Mary Norton clutch.

The trend for wearing electric blue continues with Mary-Louise Parker. Her Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown had asymmetrical tiers from the bodice, and a chiffon hem and train.

She accessorized her gown with silver jewels and a Mary Norton clutch and Chopard jewels.

Sandra Bullock was another one of my favourites in this vanilla Dior gown.

I love how her hair falls to the opposite direction of her asymmetrical gown.

Rachel Griffiths wore a one-shouldered golden Ralph Rucci silk gown, with a Judith Leiber vintage handbag Decades Inc, Liseanne Frankfurt jewels and bronze Vanessa Noel heels.

Kyra Sedgwick did not wear L’Wren Scott as I had predicted. Instead she wore a strapless red belted Oscar de la Renta gown, with Fred Leighton jewels.

Amanda Seyfried wore an ethereal pearl Stella McCartney silk asymmetric gown, which had a beaded detail on the shoulder.

She completed her look with a Daniel Swarovski clutch.

Heidi Klum wore an incredibly cute strapless vintage James Galanos pouf dress, with black and red polka dots from Decades.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin multi buckle sandals.

I was not crazy about Isla Fisher’s two-tone nude Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown. I would have liked it to be all one colour.

Elisabeth Moss was one of the many ladies who picked red last night, hers was vintage Givenchy, and she picked Garrard jewels to complete her look.

Jane Krakowski opted for a J. Mendel gown, which she wore with Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry.

Melissa George does not do safe, which is why her thigh-high split ice blue Armani Prive gown has an interesting black fan detail on the bodice.

Tina Fey’s Roberto Cavalli plunging gown, also did not wow me.

Surprise guest of the night was Alek Wek. I don’t remember the last time I saw her on the red carpet.

The supermodel wore a Christian Dior Fall 2008 mini dress, which showed off her impossibly long legs.

Vanessa Hudgens wore a nude beaded Alberta Ferretti gown, with a candy coloured necklace.

Madeline Zima looks youthful but elegant. She has an amazing figure and I love how this dress shows her shape and the curves hit all the right points.

Viola Davis’ gown for some reason reminded me of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Zac Posen Oscar 2007 gown with shape and the lines.

She dressed well for her figure, and the colour is so complimentary to her skin.

Maria Menounos wore a cute purple ruffle one shoulder Ina Soltani gown.

Samantha Harris wore the same designer, but picked her dress in the colour of the moment – electric blue.

Christina Hendricks has curves to die for. The stunning redhead looked ravishing wearing a custom black silk sculpted strapless Tadashi gown.

Anna Paquin wore a purple Herve Leroux gown, which had a ruched bodice and draped detail on the side.
