Who Wore 3.1 Phillip Lim Better? Michelle Williams, Yoon-A or Vivica A Fox

Back in June Michelle Williams attended the “2009 Fresh Air Fund Salute To American Heroes” wearing this toughened-up prom style piece.

She looked angelic wearing the 3.1 Phillip Lim silk mini dress with sequin detail paired with metallic shoes to match the gold neck detail.

Yoon-A then sported a deep blue version of the same dress to the “46th Daejong Film Awards” in Seoul.

She too opted for a small angular clutch and kept her hair and make-up simple like Michelle.

Vivica A Fox is the third celeb to choose this 3.1 Phillip Lim dress.

She wore it to the opening night of the ‘Bel Air Film Festival’ this weekend.

Vivica’s rouge lips are a nice touch as are the gold tear-drop earrings she has on, but I’m not too sure about her white Christian Louboutin Maggie heels.

Michelle, Yoon-A and Vivica all look gorgeous, it’s a tough call. Michelle’s ivory version just about beats the blue for me.

I prefer that you can see more of the shape of the dress and see the quality of the fabric too.

The colouring suits Michelle’s soft features and blonde locks.

This dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter and Browns Fashion.

Billboard’s 4th Annual Women In Music

Its so nice to see Beyonce Knowles wearing something so soft and feminine.

The singer’s hair was super straight as she walked the red carpet wearing a jade pleated Malandrino Resort 2010 dress with draped skirt and ruffled shoulders, paired with ivory Sergio Rossi leather heels.

When she doesn’t appear to be trying to hard to make style statements she really look fabulous.

This was the perfect choice to pick up her Women of the Year Award.

Lady GaGa Style found the blue gown the singer wore which was designed by Manchester Metropolitan University graduate Holly Russell.

The blue gown has beetle wings and black synthetic hair wefts woven into the shoulders and neckline.

Keeping the look true to the runway, Lady GaGa didn’t line the sheer gown and she didn’t surprisingly wear runway magpie head wear.

GaGa was there to pick up her Rising Star Award.

When I first saw this look on Michelle Williams it immediately reminded me of the Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 LBD with a gold fanned statement necklace.

Her LBD and gold necklace was paired with very unimpressive heels.

London Fashion Week Front Row

Fashion Fringe & Christopher Kane

Regular readers will know that I’m constantly fascinated with how Donatella Versace takes one piece from the runway and creates a totally different look unique to her.

On her visit to London she created a black sleek pencil dress from a one-shoulder top she had presented on the Fall 2009 runway.

Should would’ve look fantastic in either look which is so great about her.

Her heels are from the Versus collection.

Matthew Williamson

Olivia Palmero a self confessed Topshop addict, wore a Matthew Williamson Zig-Zag dress with navy ankle booties.

She’s not quite sporting the ‘Palmero’, but a neat ponytail.

Marios Schwab

Anna Wintour hasn’t been to London Fashion Week in a very long while and her presence is a BIG deal.

She attended the shows of  London hippest designers Marios Schwab and Christopher Kane wearing a reptile – no doubt Prada – coat and a smile sans sunglasses, which is strange because it’s actually sunny in London.

Leigh Lezark wore a crystal print Marios Schwab mini dress which I think looks better with the runway sash tied to the waist.

Ashish

Michelle Williams was very much the ‘Sophia Bush’ of London Fashion Week, as she was everywhere.

She also pulled an ‘Anna Wintour’ by not wearing anything from the designers who’s shows she attended.

At the Ashish show she wore a cute coral tiered Jenny Packham dress and sunshine yellow peep-toes.

I love that jeweled detail on the neckline.

Bora Aksu

Michelle must have like the Ashish show so much that she then wore one of his pieces to the Bora Aksu show.

The black sequin tunic dress was covered names of places I’m sure she’s traveled to with Destiny’s Child.

I love the quirky shoes she paired with this dress.

Topshop Unique

Kate Moss looks more like she’s on vacation rather than sitting front row, but Kate being Kate can wear a trash bag and still work it in the front row.

PPQ

Sporting shearling jacket when it’s quite warm in London, Alexa Chung give us that ‘so hip it hurts’ look as she waited for the PPQ show.

She wore a LBD with a lace panel, booties and a Miu Miu cross body bag.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label

Joss Stone opts for a classic Westwood tartan ensemble with some questionable open-toe Westwood booties.

Michelle Williams arrived wearing a LBD with an asymmetrical hemline plus a bright fuschia dupioni blazer.

Sexy Christian Louboutin Calypso heels.

Nicola Roberts opted for a red shimmering dress with ankle strapped heels.

Nicola arrived with Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding who made a huge statement with her PVC mini dress and Giuseppe Zanotti sculpted platform ankle boots with a bright red platform.

Luella

Every time I saw Peaches Geldof in New York she looked like a moody sulking teenager, even at the Marchesa show.

So I’m glad for two things: she smiling and she looks adorable wearing a Luella Spring 2009 lilac one-shouldered dress.

It’s not often I really like what she wears, but this a great look for her…sans tights.

Social Events Of The Week

2009 Fresh Air Fund Salute To American Heroes, New York

Michelle Williams wore a demure ivory one-shouldered 3.1 Phillip Lim dress, with an asymmetrical gold detailed bodice, which complimented her gold Jimmy Choo Frost mirrored leather sandals, and the trim of her YSL box clutch.

She looks divine in her heavenly dress.

Mariah Carey and Michelle are worlds apart, when it comes to dress sense.

After a few events in which Mariah stepped up her game, she kinda takes a few steps back in this white column Georges Chakra Couture gown.

The figure-hugging strapless gown, simple and beautiful, but that embroidered floral panel I really dislike, as it reveals her underwear.

Her gown is paired with Christian Louboutin Amelissa Platform Sandals.

“Star Trek” Press Conference And Photo Call, Mexico

Zoe Saldana’s ivory Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 leather dress, doesn’t have the same wow factor as so many of her other ‘Star Trek’ looks, but she still looks pretty damn fantastic.

I love how her hair is styled, and her natural make-up.

Brian Atwood black patent ‘Maniac’ pumps, complete this sophisticated look.

“The Hangover”, New York Screening

Molly Sims works a tailored look, pairing a Rag & Bone Spring 2009 metallic silver jacket, with cropped black trousers, and a white tank.

Sergio Rossi elasticated strappy ankle sandals, and a vintage necklace add more credit to this edgy look.

“Blood: The Last Vampire”, South Korea

Jeon Ji-Hyun really shouldn’t have worn thick black tights, with her cute white Chanel off-the-shoulder knit dress.

Talk about ruining a look.

Massimo Ferragamo Cocktail Party, New York

Lake Bell smolders in a red, high neck Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2009 dress, with black accessories.

W Hotel Grand Opening, Florida

Blake Lively keeps her twins covered – for once I hear you say – wearing an angelic white ruched Christian Cota dress.

She looks great with her trademark wavy locks, and purple strappy sandals, which almost match the purple carpet.

LG Xenon Splash Pool Party, LA

Hayden Panettiere is still glowing with her perfect tan, and glossy hair.

The actress looks super-cute wearing a mint green chiffon dress, with strappy metallic sandals.

This look really shows off her softer side, with loose curls framing her face, and flawless natural make-up.

Dania Ramirez wears a Sunner “Florent” combo linen and cotton jumpsuit which I love, but I don’t like her choice of bubble gum pink heels with the look.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Jessica Biel goes for a low-key, yet still very feminine look, wearing a beige leather mini skirt, which she teamed with a silk navy cami.

She accessorized with an ornate Tom Binns ‘Dumont’ necklace, a Prada denim bag, and chunky Gucci Iman T-strap sandals.

Who Wore Alexander Wang Better? Michelle Williams, Marisa Tomei or Lindsay Lohan


Michelle Williams was the first celebrity to wear this very sexy Alexander Wang Spring 2009 white jersey dress with black booties, when she attended a screening of Synecdoche in New York last year.

Marisa Tomei opted to cover up most of her dress, with an oversized black blazer to the Children Mending Hearts Gala in LA.

She completed her look with black and white peep-toe pumps, and a black clutch.

Lindsay Lohan is not one to cover up. She attended an Oscars after party, sans bra, in the same dress.

She teamed her dress with black peep-toe heels, and a half-up-half-down hairdo.

Lindsay looks really rough, so I’m not going to considered her.

I like Marisa’s overall look, but this dress shouldn’t be covered up, so Michelle wins for me.

18.03.09 In Her Closet

In Michelle Williams’ Closet – Chloé Striped Dress


Actress Michelle Williams arrived at 2009 Film Independent Spirit Awards last month in Santa Monica channeling a young Mia Farrow wearing a Chloé striped sleeveless dress.

The dress is so incredibly cute on her, and is very indicative of her effortless chic style. I love the long slung front pockets.

The striped dress is nautical chic at it’s very finest.

Net-A-Porter have this dress available to purchase on their US site for $2,185, or the international site for £1,033/€1,300.

This would be a great summer dress. It would be garden party ready with strappy sandals.
