Artists for Peace and Justice Party – Mischa Barton In Marchesa

When I saw Mischa Barton wearing this Marchesa Fall 2010 dress at the “Artists for Peace and Justice Party” in Cannes last night, I heard a crashing sound in my head.

That was the sound of my dreams being shattered.

This was my favourite dress from the Marchesa Fall 2010 collection because the embroidered cream duchess satin carousel cocktail dress was so beautiful and different from anything Marchesa had presented before.

I had hoped to see this stunning dress worn by Camilla Belle, Emmy Rossum or Leighton Meester (notice they are all brunettes), but that may never be realised now.

I gave Mischa a pass yesterday, but she gets an almighty fail today.

How can something so beautiful and delicate be made to look so very bad?

Without a hint of exaggeration, I’m devastated.

2010 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala – Mischa Barton In Marchesa

We haven’t seen much of Mischa Barton for a few months, then the last few days she seemed to be everywhere, which is why it’s not surprise to see her on the red carpet at the 2010 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala this evening.

The former ‘OC’ actress opted for a white satin chiffon draped Marchesa Fall 2010 column gown with a ruffled off-the-shoulder neckline.

Judging by this look I’m guessing Mischa was going for a sweet yet naughty look, because her ethereal gown is worn lower than the models plus she’s opted for some heavy eye make-up.

The low neckline I like, but I’m not fond of the dark eyes.

To complete her look Mischa carried a diamond crystal Marchesa clutch.

Who Wore Osman Yousefzada Better? Mischa Barton or Sarah Brown

Mischa Barton arrived at the British Academy Television Awards held at The Royal Festival Hall in London last April wearing a Osman Yousefzada Fall 2009 navy blue gown.

I fell in love with gold embellished turtle-neckline when I first saw this gown, so I wished at the time Mischa had worn her hair back to show off that detail to full effect.

The Prime Minister’s wife Sarah Brown has been front row at many shows this London Fashion Week, so she’s been taking in a lot of style tips.

At the 2010 Elle Style Awards last night she wore the same gown as Mischa Barton.

We thankfully got to see that stunning neckline with Sarah’s shorter hair, but unfortunately this picture is not doing her much justice as she looked much better in real life.

For taking a chance and experimenting with fashion and because everyone is bound to vote for Mischa, Sarah wins this for me.

New On Today – Mischa Barton’s Zac Posen Gown

Net-A-Porter are starting to add more Resort 2010 looks to their virtual shelves.

Today they added the stunning Zac Posen crepe jersey gown which Mischa Barton wore to “The Beautiful Life” Launch Party in New York back in September.

It’s a stunning gown. Mischa really did the look justice.

What I loved most about the dress were those beautiful cut-out details on the front and the back.

Check out this gown and many more celebrity looks over at Shop Her Closet.

Georgina Chapman for Garrard Collection Launch

Georgina Chapman is the latest guest designer for Garrard.

She follows it-girl and jewelery designer Jade Jagger who departured from the company as Creative Director in 2007.

The designer looked stunning in an electric blue strapless Marchesa strapless dress with a gathered bodice which hasn’t appeared on the runway.  See she can diversify.

Exquisite earrings and a ring from her Garrard collection complete the look.

Helena Christensen will always be one of the most beautiful women on this planet. I love how she’s working this look.

The super wore a black Marchesa mini tank dress, which incorporates the white embroidery detail from a Marchesa Spring 2010 gown we saw presented recently.

Her look is paired with black pointy heels, a Marchesa Crocodile clutch and a black Marchesa short sleeved feathered coat.

Tyra Banks would say this look is ‘fieeerrrccceeee’.

Tinsley Mortimer paired her favourite YSL Folies sandals with an onyx Notte by Marchesa bubble hemmed dress with embroidered shoulder straps

Her silver fringed clutch is from her own Samantha Thavasa collection.

Tinsley was there to view the collection, but she was also filming her reality TV show.

Hopefully it’s more interesting and less predictable than “The City”.

Becki Newton kept her look simple but chic wearing a black Notte by Marchesa dress with gold chain trims, paired with a fantastic pair of woven strappy sandals.

Flawless make-up.

Mischa Barton looks amazing in this this black one shoulder Notte by Marchesa dress with chiffon overlay and embroidered waist detail, but the shoes don’t quite do it for me.

In this picture she is showing off a Gold and White diamond bird wraparound Gerrard ring.

Gucci Icon-Temporary Flash Sneaker Store Launch

Evan Rachel Wood seems to be the Gucci girl of the moment.

On this occasion she wore a one shoulder mini Gucci Fall 2009 dress which has already been worn on the red carpet.

Her sparkling dress was covered in green and black striped crystals which she belted as per the runway.

She paired her mini dress with a large black cuff and black multi-strap high-heeled sandals to toughen up her gorgeous look.

Claire Danes is not much of a dare devil on the red carpet, so I’m not surprised she opted for one of the pieces from the Gucci Resort 2010 collection and not the rock chick Fall 2009 collection.

Her stripy lemon and blue dress already has me wishing for summer 2010, but her Gucci triple platform pumps had me wishing she’d picked another pair of heels to go with this summery dress.

Frida Giannini hosted this event, and like Donatella Versace in the previous post, Frida is already sporting her own Spring 2010 collection.

The Creative Director wore a simple black ensemble including skinny pants, and a black blazer with an interesting fringed detail on the shoulders.

Poppy Delevigne wore a silver Gucci Fall 2009 over-sized tunic top paired with black leggings.

This is quite a casual look, but not too casual to make her look like she shouldn’t have walked the red carpet at this event.

Mischa Barton looks good.

She keeps on smiling no matter what life throws at her.

The star worked a black sequined long-sleeved dress with plunging neckline.

Red carpet ankle boots as standard.
