Who Wore J. Mendel Better? Kristen Stewart or Melissa George

Kristen Stewart looked really good wearing a cream J.Mendel Spring 2010 strapless chiffon dress when she attended the Paris photocall for “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” at Hotel Crillon back in November.

The actress paired her dress with matching heels from her favourite shoe brand – Sergio Rossi.

Actress Melissa George wore the same dress when she attended the J. Mendel Fall 2010 presentation during New York Fashion Week.

She opted to wear her dress with the same white blazer this dress was presented with, plus gold ankle strap Christian Louboutin pumps.

Kristen wins for me because I love this look without the blazer and I much prefer her Sergio Rossi heels.

“Calvin Klein’s LA Arts Month And ALAC” Event – Melissa George In Calvin Klein

What is this Fashion Felony Friday?

This is no way close to being as bad as Kelis, but I really don’t like Melissa George’s look.

The actress attended the “Calvin Klein’s LA Arts Month And ALAC” Event in LA last night wearing a nude ribbed long-sleeve Calvin Klein dress, with nude heels and box clutch.

The colour of this shapeless dress, which she wears without a bra does nothing for her.

She may have thought the berry lip was a nice way to add a pop of colour to her look, but she’s too washed out for the colour to have a positive impact.

Runway To The Opening Of Burberry’s Perth Store – Melissa George In Burberry Prorsum

Australian actress Melissa George was on hand to help celebrate the opening of the new Burberry Prorsum store in Perth yesterday.

I believe Australia is currently mid-winter, so she was appropriately dress in her Burberry Fall 2009 ensemble which was quite a quintessential British look.

I love her botanical print silk taffeta Burberry Prorsum dress, which is perfect refreshing replacement for a LBD, but I wish I could have found one picture of her without the Burberry coat.

Burberry obviously wanted her to be styled like the runway model – 10 out of 10 for that effort – but is the dress sleeveless, 3/4 length sleeved?

These are questions I want answers to.

Those questions are partially answered by Net-A-Porter who have the v-neck version of the same Burberry Prorsum silk floral taffeta jacquard dress on sale for £2,495/€2,995.

They have also recently added Melissa’s Burberry Prorsum leather and wood sandals.

Stamp out your city style with these platform sandals for £525/€607.

Runway To “Triangle” London Premiere – Melissa George In Lanvin

Melissa George was in London last night to promote her psychological thriller “Triangle”, in which she plays five versions of the same character.

Melissa body language tells me she’s not sure about her Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 gold metallic dress.

She’s very “Hmmm….I don’t know” and I feel much the same way, especially about the gathered detail on the hip.

The shimmering dress is gorgeous with its golden colour, but it fails to flatter Melissa.

We all know she has a amazing figure, but this dress doesn’t accentuate that. I’m not suggesting she only wear figure-hugging dress, but something that feels like she’s not hiding behind it.

Of course I’m disliking the tights with this look, but I do love her accessories which include an array of Lanvin’s signature glass pearl and grosgrain ribbon necklaces and a black Lanvin bag with a gold chain bag decorated the trademark black ribbon.

What do you think Yay or Nay?

Calvin Klein Collection Boutique Launch At Saks Fifth Avenue

Melissa George looked so elegant wearing a black one-shoulder Calvin Klein Fall 2009 with black strappy sandals from the same collection.

Unfortunately you can’t see the details of her dress in this picture, but from the runway you can see the layered detail which snakes around the dress.

Minimalist is that foundation on which Calvin Klein was built on, so Melissa kept her accessory’s to a minimum with a silver box clutch, earrings and a single bracelet.

Elettra Wiedemann also opted for a no frills look, simply wearing a black asymmetrical Calvin Klein Fall 2009 dress with a textured single buttoned jacket.

Black boots and a black clutch completed this beautiful simplicity, but I would’ve loved a dab of colour on her lips like Melissa.

We have a result!!!

Alexa Chung has finally taken my advice and washed her hair. Now only if she could do this more often.

The MTV presenter would have stood out in a sea of black dresses wearing a red Calvin Klein Collection Terall dress.

I love this bright red dress, which is made more interesting with her stunning silver necklace

Geez woman lose those darn booties with every look.

“Inglourious Basterds” New York Screening

Despite being the human equivalent to a magpie and being instantly attracted to anything the sparkles, I’m not in love with Diane Kruger’s embellished Miu Miu mini dress as I don’t think it flatters her.

I feel like tugging the skirt down as it sits too high for my liking.

She completed her vixen look with bright red lips and black strappy heels.

Diane’s co-star Mélanie Laurent faired much better wearing a Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2009 Couture black ensemble.

The look consisted of a black pencil skirt, patent waist belt and a sheer halter top, which she lined from the runway version.

Black peep-toes and a black Christian Louboutin clutch completed the look.

Love the look, but I’m not at all crazy about her hair.

Michelle Monaghan looked outstanding wearing a navy blue Rachel Roy Resort 2010 dress with sculptural peaked shoulders.

The bold shoulder is not an easy look to pull off, but Michelle does with ease.

Manolo Blahnik white strappy sandals and a silver cuff complete the look.

Rachel Roy modified Spring 2009 strapless dress to become a spaghetti strapped taupe dress with a less revealing metallic neckline.

Her look is made more interesting with a chunky silver necklace from Michael Kors Fall 2009 collection.

I like designers like Rachel, Donatella Versace and recently Georgina Chapman who modify their own designs to make them more individual.  Take notes Mrs B.

I LOVE Agyness Deyn here.

For once the British model looks glamorous even though she’s wearing a Rocky Horror Show t-shirt.

There’s something about the neatness of her look that I’m drawn too. The sleek bob, the pencil skirt, the red Lulu Guinness lips clutch, her gold strappy Méchante of London’s ‘Elektra’ Rose python heels and the cleanliness of it all.

Not a hint of grunge in sight.

Alexa Chung’s style is not to my liking, but I do appreciate her shirt with a studded collar, plus her H&M skirt, but I can’t bare the greasy hair.

I don’t understand how greasy hair became so trendy.

Actress Julia Stiles looked smart and chic wearing a white satin dress, with an ivory criss cross detail that goes across her back.

She paired her dress with gold gladiator sandals and a white clutch.

Olivia Palermo bucked the short and sassy trend at this event and opted for a ruffled maxi Kate Moss for Topshop dress.

Although she does look elegant and she has added a pony tail to her trademark hairstyle, I can’t help feel a bit bored by her look.

The edgy New Yorker appears to have soften her look.

Melissa George made a huge statement wearing a bold red dress to this screening.

The star was very sophisticated in scarlet as she added black accessories including a studded peep-toes.

Eva Amurri where is your bra?

With twins like those they need support.

Emmanuelle Chriqui at least wore a bra, even though I can see it under her white Kain Label Pocket Tee.

Her electric blue clutch punches up her laid-back look.

Socialite Fabiola Beracasa channels her inner Victoria Beckham wearing a ridiculous headband whilst ruining her gorgeous plum Alexander Wang one-sleeve jersey dress.

With her newly plumped lips Lindsay Lohan walked the red carpet looking a disheveled mess, but then what’s new about that?

I’m sure the actress got many calls from Britney Spears last night, asking for her ratty extensions back.

2009 Whitney Contemporaries Art Party And Auction

Ali Larter looks very sexy in her white printed Herve Leger Fall 2009 mini dress with a plunging neckline and padded shoulders.

Ali tried to diffuse the uber sexiness of this dress by adding a stunning statement necklace by Erickson Beamon with a large orange pendent.

Love the dress, hate the heels.

They’re so clunky for this dress, plus I would have preferred a taupe strappy sandal.

A Nancy Gonzalez gold clutch completed her look.

Alexis Bledel also wore a plunging neckline Herve Leger Fall 2009 bandage dress. Hers was in chocolate brown with shimmering gold panels.

Alexis always seems quite shy so I’m really shocked that she’s wearing such a sexy piece and without the runway blazer.

She completed her look with a sparkling Judith Leiber clutch and pewter Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Lake Bell opted for a futuristic look wearing a red BCBG Max Azria Resort 2010 dress with grey embroidered details which is a cross between Star Trek and Spidergirl.

She wore her dress with silver sandals and a lemon Herve Leger Spring 2009 clutch.

The dress will grow on me, but the shoes and the clutch. No.

I really wish Maggie Grace hadn’t held her clutch so close to her skirt because I love the tulip shape on the skirt of this teal blue Christian Siriano Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

I’m glad Maggie opted for something we haven’t seen from Christian Siriano, as I’m so tired of seeing the same dresses in various colours.

Maggie is looking fantastic lately which makes me ask the question. Does she have a new stylist?

Her look was complete with Christian Louboutin Carnaval heels with a leafy embellishment at the rear.

Hilary Rhoda looked sexy but sweet wearing a pale blue Max Azria Spring 2009 plunging draped toga dress.

Silver sandals were the perfect complement.

The red carpet always lights up when Camilla Belle graces it with her presence.

Wearing a green one-shouldered Max Azria Resort 2010 dress with ruffles cascading from the shoulder the actress looked simply gorgeous with seemingly not much effort.

Amber Tamblyn wore a black and white Alice + Olivia fan dress, which I blogged about recently, saying it looked very much like the Gianfranco Ferré dress Anne Hathaway wore to the Critics Choice Awards.

I would have really liked this look if it wasn’t for the tights.

Yes I know I go on about disliking tights so much, but it’s a real bug-bear of mine. You all must have something that you really dislike too.

Max Azria’s BFF Melissa George was of course at this MaxAriza event.

The actress wore a white haltered Herve Leger Resort 2010 bandage dress with matching heels, a gold clutch and a gold stack of Samantha Wills bangles.

As much as I want to say I don’t like it, Melissa really makes it work surprisingly.

Selita Ebanks is such a pretty woman so I’m dumbfounded as to why she opted for so much make-up.

It really takes so much away from her natural beauty.
