Red Carpet Fashion Awards

“American Character: A Photographic Journey” Launch Event, New York

Lucy Liu has swapped her black YSL Trib Two’s, for a grey suede pair, which we saw Victoria Beckham wear recently.

Lucy’s grey heels worked with the feathered details on her Rachel Roy Fall 2008 dress. The pleated neckline is really interesting.

This is not your average red carpet dress, which is what I love about Lucy, she’s not afraid to take a risk.

Mena Suravi opted for this mocha Christian Siriano Fall 2009 one-shouldered mini dress, which she wore with very fierce strappy heels.

March Of Dimes 34th Annual Beauty Ball, New York

Vanessa Williams wears a well worn Alexander McQueen Fall 2007 strapless chiffon green gown. Both Jessica Alba and Mary J Blige wore this back in 2007.

Vanessa gives her dress some shape, with a studded belt from the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2008 collection.

Does this woman age? She is so flawless.

Fergie debuted her new brunette do, which I really like on her.

Her dress is cute, but those Jimmy Choo heels are fierce.

“Fast & Furious” LA Premiere

Michelle Rodriguez is surprisingly wearing a dress. This is a very rare occasion indeed.

The dress gives the illusion of nudity, but it has an underlay covering the lace details.

This is a very brave choice, as we know flash blubs could have exposed more than we wished to see.

Jordana Brewster’s pink Burberry dress is simply divine. I adore the colour, the draping on the skirt, and the peek-a-boo bodice.

She completes her look with Jimmy Choo Corsica nude gladiator heels.

“Race To Witch Mountain”, LA Premiere

Carla Gugino wore a bright yellow Michael Kors dress with gold accessories including Christian Louboutin heel, and gold Jimmy Choo clutch.

Everything about this look is perfect, excluding her hair ‘do. I have never been a fan of hair plied on top like that, because it reminds me of a pineapple.

AnnaSophia Robb wore a purple Nicole Miller criss-crossed haltered dress.

A very cute dress, for the young actress.

Catherine Malandrino’s Fall 2009 presentation was held at the Rainbow Room on the 65th floor at the Rockefeller Center. It was refreshing to get away from the hussle an bustle of the tents.

When I arrived on the top floor, I was greeted with a breakfast buffet. This is the first show I had attended with refreshments.

I was very excited to be invited to this show, because Catherine always presents really pretty feminine dresses.

As the curtain fell, and the lights dimmed, and Somewhere Over the Rainbow, played in the background, first model walked out onto a circular stage. The stage was rotating, and I was impressed at how none of the models wobbled like Bambi on ice. I’m pretty sure I would have hit the deck.

The collection is full of very pretty, wearable pieces, made to flatter a woman’s figure. Dresses and separates were embellished with jeweled details and intricate embroidery, draping and ruching emphasised the details. Sheer mesh played a big part, with some pieces nodding to the illusion of nudity.

In Catherine’s notes she had titled her collection “Over The Rainbow” which may explain the bird wings details on some of the pieces, because you would need wings to fly over the rainbow.

Models wore black mesh hair nets, with some also wearing the nets as veils.


Here are some of my pictures. One of my favourite dresses was a black jersey dress, which looked very plain from the front, but the back was open with a stunning jeweled detail on the right shoulder.


Mary J Blige was the guest of honour, as they are very good friends.

The diva did not remove her sunglasses once. Not even when the turned the lights down for the show.

Mary looked outstanding wearing a lilac Malandrino Spring 2009 dress, with eggplant knee-high boots.


Sophia Bush was already one of my secret girl crushes, but yesterday she really went up in my estimation, as she was so incredibly graceful.

She arrived wearing a black coat, to reveal this gorgeous red satin Catherine Malandrino dress with flutter sleeves.


Mena Survai looked really good wearing a Catherine Malandrino sheath dress, with a floral pattern and scalloped edges throughout.

She contrasted her pretty dress, with some kick-ass Pour La Victoire gladiator heels.


Michelle Trachtenberg wore a pale lilac Malandrino Spring 2009 cropped leather jacket, under her all black ensemble. Her and Sophia talked like old friends, it was great to see, as I have witness many celebs pretend other actresses don’t exist at shows.


Here’s a photo of Coco Rocha interviewing Mary J Blige for E! after the show, which I took.

During the Rome Film Festival, amfAR’s held their 2nd Annual Cinema Against AIDS event.

Mena Suvari attended wearing a Missoni Spring 2009 very wide legged jumpsuit.

The jumpsuit was adorned with many sequins and studs.

The back of her dress was v-shaped to reveal her amazing back tattoo. I am not a fan of tattoo’s, but hers is quite impressive.

Margherita Missoni is of course wearing a dress from the Missoni collection.

Her maroon, peach and taupe column dress with embellishments, was modified from the Fall 2008 collection.

Eva Green returned her Gothic roots wearing this white dress, with a black lace overlay.

The actress recently wore a rich blue dress to the Franklyn London premiere, which was refreshing, but like Dita she looks better wearing darker colours.
