Louis Vuitton Fall 2009




The Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 collection on the last day of Fashion Week, gave us a glorious colour palette of fuchsia, jade, coral, electric blue, red and sunshine yellow, and glossy blacks.

Marc Jacobs gave us pompoms, ruffles, bows, Playboy bunny ears, and lot of ruching.

There was a disco-punk prom theme with lots of puffy skirts and shoulders, which created a lot of volume, as did the multi-coloured layered skirts.

Mini tulip skirts, delicate lace blouses, knit cardigans and the most beautiful black tailored skirt suits were all presented to complete this gorgeous collection.

I did get a touch of de ja vu when I saw the nude and pink dress, as it has a Lanvin Spring 2009 feel to it, but other than that this was in my top 10 shows of the season.

The accessories – as you would expect – were all lust worthy especially the LV bags and clutches. The thigh high boots, which are surprisingly popular this season, I think I’ll pass on.


Gong Li made me go gaga over her Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 accessories with her denim blouse and wide pant Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 look. She accessorized this look better than it appeared on the runway.


Milla Jovovich wore a navy short sleeved blazer with tan stretch pants all from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 collection. She added a white blouse and red belt, to differentiate it from the runway look.

Her look was complete with a Louis Vuitton Monogram Motard Afterdark bag.


Alexa Chung should have really taken time to blow out her hair before attending this show, because I really love her look, especially her LV accessories.

Roberto Cavalli Paris Boutique Opening

Diane Kruger starts the week off on a good note, wearing a chain-mail Roberto Cavalli Fall 2009 dress, with an asymmetrical hem.

She completes her look with her hair pulled back, a fur shrug, a gold clutch and black boots.

She is another actress who continues to improve on perfection.

Milla Jovovich’s white embroidered Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 dress looks really cute from the front. I love the lace yoke and the black ribbon detail.

From the back, it looks like she is wearing a nappy (diaper).

Not a great look, but very cozy to sit on I would imagine.

French actress Roxane Mesquida wears a strapless Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 mini dress, which is very similar to the dress Miley Cyrus wore to the Clive Davis Grammy Party last month.

The difference here, is that the black, white and grey print, plus the embroidery on back of the ruffled skirt, plus the wearer, makes the dress appear classier.

Will the real Adriana Lima please stand up?

I don’t think I have ever seen Adriana look so plain and reserved. Normally she’s wearing an ultra short mini, her hair has that ‘just got out of bed’ look, and she’s giving us that signature pout.

If you are wondering what happen, she got married.

Why do these chicks get married, or start dating someone, and lose their identity?

Runway To The "Fortune Forum Summit" – Milla Jovovich In Roberto Cavalli


Milla Jovovich attended the Fortune Forum Summit in London this week.

The actress looked ultra glamourous opting for a vintage-inspired look in a flowing Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 column dress, with a gold chain pattern across the front. This white dress was presented during the Roberto Cavalli Menswear show back in June 2008.

Milla carried a gold sparkling clutch, and her hair was swept to one side, with a double hairband to complete the look perfectly.

Fashion Dinner For Aids


I think this has to be one of the best dressed events of the year so far.

Diane Kruger will always – in my eyes – be one of the top 10 best dressed female celebrities in the world. I was not a fan of the Nina Ricci Spring 2009 collection, but trust Diane Kruger to make me fall in love.

Talk about bringing something to life.

This gown with a rise and fall hem, is absolutely stunning on Diane. The nude gown with multi coloured prints, really stands out. The cap sleeves barely reveal her shoulders, which is quite sexy, and less in your face than cleavage.

Her look is complete with a vibrant purple clutch, and strappy heels.

I don’t think I can gush about how much I love this enough.


Not only did Mischa Barton get a pair of Elie Saab Spring 2009 Couture heels, but she also got to wear this exquisite Elie Saab couture mint green gown.

When this gown was presented 2 days ago, I was attracted to the floral appliqués around the shoulders and bodice. I love how Mischa has taken this dress from an off-the-shoulder gown, to an asymmetric gown, but a part of me is very disappointed that this dress is now out of the running for the Oscars.

No one would knowingly pick this dress for the big O, now that Mischa has worn it, with all due respect to her.


Dita von Teese opted for a cocktail dress from the same collection.

The ice blue satin plunging dress was covered in very intricate silver embroidery, which really sparkles. Those details are no doubt the reason why Dita opted to keep her jewels to a bare minimum.

Her Louboutin’s sparkled as gloriously as her dress, and as you would expect Dita’s hair is immaculately styled, without a single strand out of place.

The look was complete with her trademark bold ruby red lips.


Milla Jovovich also wore a straight-off-the-runway gown from Elie Saab’s Spring 2009 Couture collection.

She opted for a less bling-out gown. But the beauty of this gown is in its simplicity, and the subtle details of the shimmering cap sleeves and criss cross detail on the waist.

The dove grey works well with her skin-tone, and the clutch is the perfect compliment.


French Model Laetitia Casta opted for a cutesy type Louis Vuitton black dress with a bows ruching her shoulder and skirt.

She may have picked a Resort dress, but he added a bit of an edge to her look with Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 heels.


Carla Bruni, France’s First Lady, took a night off wearing Dior to wear a stunning purple strapless YSL column gown, from the Edition Soir collection.

In all the pictures she has her clutch covering her gown, which is a shame because the majority of the detail is where her clutch is being held.


Vanessa Paradis pink strapless mini dress, is also covered by her woolly mammoth pink coat, which is also a shame because the pink dress looks heavenly against her skin.

The Art of Elysium 2nd Annual Heaven Gala

Eva Mendes had an incredible 2008 on the red carpet, so I am glad she has started 2009 with a bang.

The stunning actress looks outstanding wearing a nude Christian Dior Spring 2009 haltered gown.

The keyhole belted gown has crystals embellished on the top half of the dress, and a long flowing skirt.

This is a poke in the ribs for all those who say my girl plays it safe.

Kirsten Dunst was absent from the red carpet for most of 2008, but it looks like during that down time she didn’t lose any of her flair.

Her silk Valentino gown, had a ruffled collar, and a delicate chiffon petal front bib.

Kiki is back, and looking better than ever.

Ali Larter’s black silk Ralph Lauren Spring 2009 gown is simply magnificent. She carries the gown, which has a gold embellished neckline, with both style and grace.

She is a designer’s delight with a lean body and beautiful face. I could not gush about how much I love this enough.

I’m a little disappointed in Kate Bosworth’s pick of this black leaf detailed Nina Ricci Spring 2009 dress.

Olivier Theyskens’ Nina Ricci Spring 2009 collection was full of these short at the front, long at the back dresses, which just didn’t float my boat.

Kate of all people should have made me love it, but even she couldn’t.

Sophia Bush was exquisitely styled in a white strapless Monique Lhuillier gown. Simplicity at its finest, and I don’t think she has ever looked so good.

Her silver jewels perfected this already perfect look.

Joy Bryant wore yellow Missoni maxi dress, with gold accessories.

This girl never gets it wrong.

I don’t know about you, but there is something not quite right about the fit of Nicole Richie’s Jasmine di Milo Spring 2008 dress.

The top half is heavily embroidered, which no doubt would make it quite heavy. So it’s no wonder that the bodice sits quite low down on her.

I can also see her tit-tape, which is never a good thing.

Marisa Tomei practically lives on the red carpet at the moment, but when you’re hot, you’re hot.

Keeping the same hairstyle from her red carpet appearance earlier in the day, the actress changed into this black and white strapless dress.

The dress had a black bow detailing the bodice, and a white chiffon shirt with black script across it.

Rachel Griffiths wear the colour of the moment – electric blue.

Her 50s silk blue cocktail dress from Decades, is matched with a purple Daniel Swarovski clutch and eggplant heels.

Milla Jovovich wears a headband Mischa Barton would approve of, with her black, yellow and white Pucci keyhole gown.

I hate to jump on the Rumer Willis bashing bandwagon, but she really needs to look back at how great she looked during the House Bunny LA premiere, and try to reintroduce that look to the red carpet. Time after time she gets it so wrong.

Nothing is good here.

Courteney Cox Arquette wears an dress that is not black. Shocker.

Amy Smart wears this red Yves Saint Laurent Pre-Fall 2008 gown with braided detail on the front, which was worn last year by Nicole Kidman whilst she was pregnant with her first child.

I love the colour on Amy, but the style feels too old for her.

Amber Heard went all out in this blood red Dolce & Gabbana corseted dress.

It is a very bold dress, and I admire her for having the guts to wear it, but the feathered bloodied hem is kinda creepy.

A new year, a new darker ‘do for Brittany Snow.

Her Dolce & Gabbana strapless black corseted dress, makes her hips look wider than I assume they are.

I would have liked to have seen something much more slinkier on Brittany.

I can’t remember the last time I saw a high pony on the red carpet.

Shannen Doherty wears a sheer black dress with white floral appliqués. Not the best dressed, but it works for her.

Cannes Film Festival Red Carpet & Parties Round Up

“Wendy and Lucy” Premiere

Michelle Williams looked stunning on her first appearance on the red carpet since Heath Ledger death.

The actress has been laying low for a while, but made a spectacular reappearance, radiating in this ivory asymmetric tiered Chanel Haute Couture lace dress, with feathered Manolo Blahnik sandals.

“Palermo Shooting” Premiere

It is great to see Kerry Washington back on the red carpet again. She looks amazing in this eggplant plunge-neck Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2005 Couture gown with a train.

I also love her hair. Very elegant.

Milla Jovovich is wearing a Armani Privé Spring 2008 dove grey strapless gown, with silver strappy sandals and a jeweled headband.

“Synecdoche, New York” Premiere

I am glad Kerry Washington has opted to wear her hair longer, as I feel it suit her better than the short ‘do she was sporting for a while.

This black Oscar de la Renta Fall 2008 gown with gold embroidery is stunning, but it is not quite as beautiful as the yellow Oscar de la Renta gown she wore last year, to her I Think I Love My Wife LA premiere.

Wearing a strapless purple-tiered gown with a black velvet bow, Michelle Williams joins co-stars Catherine Keener and Samantha Morton to the premiere of their new movie.

Dolce & Gabbana Party

Lindsay Lohan is only at Cannes to party, as she obviously has nothing to promote, and I am pleasantly surprised at how well dressed she is for a nice change.

Lindsay wears her green embellished very mini Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2007 dress is, with gold strappy sandals.

Margherita Missoni takes a night off wearing her family’s designs, to wear a hand-painted Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2008 organza dress.

Kate Hudson keeps it simple in this Dolce & Gabbana Resort 2008 white mini dress, which is embellished with jewels.

Naomi Campbell arrived the party with hosts Stefan Gabbana and Domenico Dolce.

The fiery supermodel wore a stunning silver Dolce & Gabbana baby-doll dress, with matching silver shoes.

Carine Roitfeld’s love affair with the Balmain Fall 2008 collection continues, and when she looks this hot, why should she stop?

This is also not the first time the Editor of French Vogue has worn this dress. She also recently wore it to a Miu Miu party.

Kerry Washington wears a sexy off-the-shoulder fringed D&G Spring 2008 gold mini dress, which she accessorizes with a black clutch and bronze heels.

Svetlana Metkina, is also bitten by the Balmain bug. This is the second time the Russian actress has worn a Balmain Spring 2008 dress at Cannes.

She wears her dress with the same Balmain gladiator heels that Gwyneth Paltrow wore this week.

This Versace Spring 2008 turquoise halter-neck gown Milla Jovovich is wearing is not really doing it for me.

The stunning actress is too fierce for this.

Natalie Portman arrives wearing a LBD from the Balmain Fall 2008 collection, a Lanvin silver sequined bolero jacket, purple pom pom shoes and a Chanel satin bow bag.

With the large Dolce & Gabbana ball gown Rose McGowan wore earlier this week, it was hard to notice the cast on her foot.

That gown was a hard act to follow, but Rose wears this lace mini dress well, considering what she has going against her.

Dita von Teese was surprisingly the only one to wearing the classic Dolce & Gabbana corset dress.

amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS 2008 – Cannes Film Festival

Finally someone had the cahones to wear the Dolce & Gabbana organza fantasy ball gowns.

I was hoping that Sarah Jessica Parker would have worn the green one to the Sex And The City New York Premiere next week, but I will have to make do with Rose Mcgowan.

She totally rocked this stunning gown. It is just a beautiful as I imagined it off the runway.

French Vogue Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld and her daughter Julia Restoin-Roitfeld leave me breathless in their stunning dresses.

Carine is wearing a red hot one-shouldered animal print Balmain Fall 2008 dress with a slit to the thigh and metallic detailing on the hip.

Julia also wears a dress from the Balmain Fall 2008 collection.

Her dress is equally as sexy as her mothers, but shorter. Her black dress is also one-shouldered, with lace detail at the hem and on the hip. She also wore her beloved black YSL tribute platform sandals, which she also wore yesterday.

Natalie Portman has obviously gotten wind of the fact that many people – not me – were tiring of her wearing Lanvin, so she opted for this beautifully structured Givenchy Spring 2008 Couture dress.

She needs to be careful not to cut herself on those spikes.

Model Natalia Vodianova wore a gold strapless Valentino Spring 2008 Couture gown with a tiered embellished skirt.

Elsa Pataki wears the same Alberta Ferretti dress which Bar Refaeli wore last Wednesday last week.

What a faux pa.

There is no greater ambassador for Marchesa than the designer Georgina Chapman.

Tonight she arrived in this very dramatic silk tulle Marchesa Spring 2008 ball gown with gold embroidered leaf appliqué.

She wore her dress with Christian Louboutin Coxinelle T-bar pumps.

STUNNING.

Petra Nemcova also wore a Marchesa Spring 2008 gown.

Her white strapless gown was much less dramatic, but equally as beautiful.

Couture Queen Dita von Teese is exquisite in this violet Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2007 Couture chiffon military-esqe gown.

The dress has badges of honour as embellishments and beaded epaulets.

Oh so cute.

Margherita Missoni looks stunning with her hair tied back, in this sweetheart neck-lined Missoni Spring 2008 strapless multi-coloured printed gown.

I love this coral coloured strapless Marchesa gown on Mary J. Blige. She is not afraid of colour, and it shows.

The embroidery on the gown is outstanding.

Joely Richardson shows off her lean figure in this stripey Ralph Lauren Spring 2008 gown, with long satin opera gloves for added dramatic effect.

Tamara Mellon usually sticks to black white and navy, so I am glad during Cannes she is wearing more colours.

This strapless bandeau dress is from the Balmain Spring 2008 collection, and is ultra feminine. I really love the wing embroidered detail.

Michelle Yeoh is wearing this very summery Roberto Cavalli Fall 2008 A-line dress with flowered embroidery.

You wouldn’t expect a dress like this to be part of a Fall collection.

Donatella Versace is stunning as ever in her own designs. The colour is gorgeous and dress fits like a glove.

This dress has the same lattice detail we have seen on a few other dresses, during this Film Festival.

Sharon Stone LOVES animal print. On most occasions she looks tacky, but not tonight.

For once she works it well. The jeweled detail on his halter-neck Roberto Cavalli dress is what I think stops it from heading down to tackyville.

Madonna is much less dramatic tonight in her coral satin pussy-bow dress with nude heels.

The pussy-bow dress is a preview of what we will see during on Stella McCartney’s Spring 2009 runway. Yes 4 months from now.

Now that is what you call star power.

Actress Aissa Maiga is wearing this Christian Dior Fall 2007 hip embellished dress, which despite being a few seasons old it looks like it’s from a recent Spring collection in white.

Not many have dared to wear the crazy designs from Marc Jacobs Louis Vuitton Spring 2008 collection.

Milla Jovovich dared to, and looks fabulous.

Coral appears to be the colour of the night.

Diane Kruger is simple elegant in her 20s inspired silver embroidered Chanel Haute Couture gown with her marcel waves.

I love how she is holding her delicate train.

Eva Herzigova opted for a simple black strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown, which covered up a lot more than the Dior dress she wore yesterday.

Very plain for Juliette Lewis.

This is the best dress I have seen Star Jones wear during Cannes. The embroidery and the feathered hem are delightful.
