More From The Front Row

Alice + Olivia

Paris Hilton showed off her very long legs wearing a LWD with a embellished bodice, and a multi-layered skirt

She completed her look with silver sparkling heels, and a faux-fur shrug.

Nicky Hilton opted for head-t0-toe black.

I love Kim Kardashian’s white waistcoat and pants set, but I don’t like the hair.

This look is so tailored, that a sleek ponytail or bun, would have worked better for me.

The Hilton sisters were in black and white, so were the Kardashian’s with Khloe being the one to faded to black.

I am loving Kristen Bell’s look. I just got a pair of tapered black trousers like this from H&M, so I think I may steal this look for tomorrow.

Adrienne Bailon looks adorable wearing a pink Alice + Olivia strapless ruffle bib dress. She gave her cutesy look an edge with a biker jacket, and the celebrity uniform shoe – the YSL Trib Two’s.

Tracy Reese

A fresh faced Paris Hilton arrived at this show wearing a red velvet dress, with a lush jacket.

I love this jacket, especially the puffy shoulders.

Nicky paired her leather jacket with a white dress.

This is an adorable LWD from Tracy Reese’s Spring 2009 collection, but again Kim Kardashian’s hair is bothering me.

Kellie Pickler wore a peachy halter with skin-tight jeans. She looked fabulous here, and even better at the Pamella Roland show which I saw her at today, but more on that later.

Jill Stuart

Kristen Bell opted for a gorgeous summery floral strapless dress, with a grey cardigan.

Michelle Trachtenberg wore a grey Jill Stuart Resort 2009 halter neck dress, with a cute bow on the hip.

Jessica Stroup opted for a white floaty dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

Amanda Bynes is wearing a stunning teal dress with a tiered skirt, but she really needs to work on her angles, that pose is so off.

Herve Leger Fall 2009



At the Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2009, I witness models falling on the runway. As funny as it may appear, it really is an uncomfortable experience. The whole of the Promenade took a sharp intake of breathe, as the models fell, then got up and continued to walk the runway.

You would think that bandage dresses don’t have anywhere else to go, but Max Azria had many ideas.

Most of the bandage dresses were updated with square shoulders, which gave them an 80s feel, and made me think of the Balmain Spring 2009 collection.

The rosette details of the previous Fall collection, were replace with leather and metallic panel detailing.

The plunging dress was the style most used, but there were also halters, criss cross halters, square neck and one-shouldered dresses.

My favourites were the black eyelash fringed dress, purely because of the way it shimmered down the runway, and the silver embellished dress with the square shoulders.


It was way too far away from the celebs to see them up close, as the place was packed, but Lucy Liu was very much in the spotlight. The camera crews went crazy for the A list star, which is not surprising as she looked hot in a black Herve Leger bandage dress.


Sophia Bush, The Queen of Fall 2008 Fashion Week was absent from the Spring 2009 shows, so I was happy to see her in what was her second show of the week.

She looked gorgeous wearing a striped grey Herve Leger dress.


Michelle Trachtenberg carried a big large red clutch, with her grey tie-dyed Herve Leger dress.


January Jones opted for a nice brightly coloured Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 mini dress, with a black leather jacket.


Jessica Stroup opted for a lime green Herve Leger dress, with a keyhole detail.


Lily Collins wore a coral and black striped Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 dress.


Of course Joy Bryant was there wearing a black Herve Leger dress.

“Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans” Los Angeles Premiere

Rhona Mitra wore a white strapless Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 dress, with a ribbon tied to the waist.

The dress was kept plain, unlike the embroidered version which was presented on the runway.

She completed her look with her hair loosely tied back, silver peep-toes, and John Hardy jewels.

Kate Beckinsale is also in this movie, so I am surprised she wasn’t at this premiere.

Garcelle Beauvais also wore a strapless dress with a ribbon tied to the waist, but hers was black with a tulle overlay.

“Valkyrie” Amsterdam Premiere

Carice van Houten stole the limelight from Tom Cruise wearing a stunning red Valentino Fall 2008 gown.

The dress is one of the few dresses I really liked from this collection.

She completes her look with green suede heels.

Her coat is by Akris, and her top and pants are from the Ralph Lauren Black Label collection.
