Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Mischa Barton had a blast during New York Fashion Week. She was front row a many shows, and she also enjoyed hanging out at some of the hippest parties.

One of those parties was the Marc Jacobs after-show-party held at Hiro in New York.

To that party she wore a black embellished Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 mini dress with lace sleeves and a studded wrap-around belt, plus tights and black flats.

Elettra Wiedemann wore the same dress a few day later when she arrived at “The Burning Plain” premiere at Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema in New York.

She wore a pair of sexy strappy sandals, which I preferred to Mischa’s flats.

As much as I want to give this to Elettra, I really don’t like the way the bottom half of the dress hangs down exposing the lace underlay, which as a result gives the look a maternity feel.

So once again I’m giving a win to Mischa by default.

Selma Blair wore a similar one-sleeved version of this dress to the Costume Institute Gala.

10th Anniversary Woodstock Film Festival Launch Party, New York

Lucy Liu, you I love you more than most but this BCBG Max Azria Fall 2009 dress does nothing for you.

I don’t like the colour nor the shape.  It looks restricting like a straitjacket.

I will however compliment you on your Krocoa black patent clutch and dove grey peep-toes.

The Wonderbra Party Edition Launch, London

I only had to look at those fine embellishments around Dita Von Teese’s bust line to recognise that this black fitted skirt suit is by Dior.

The perfect silhouette for our porcelain princess.

Style360 Fashion Week Closing Party, New York

I’m quite surprised how much I like this chocolate brown embellished Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2009 bandage dress.

She paired the dress with the perfect pair of strappy sandals.

NSF, The Human Society, And The GQ Magazine Benefit, LA

With her boyish crop Ginnifer Goodwin flashed us a smile wearing a leopard print Escada Fall 2009 button down dress with a fold-over detail, paired with black satin Brian Atwood “Starlet” pumps.

The lengths those Kardashian sisters will go to outdo each other sets a new low in attention seeking.

Khloe Kardashian who I believe is set to get married to her boyfriend of 5 mins this weekend, arrived at this event wearing sheer black sweater dress, which exposed her bra.

Seriously is it that hard to realise a nude bra will show up under a black dress such as this?

I’ve been on the fence regarding thigh-high boots for a while now, but Khloe has totally killed any desire I may have been secretly harboring.

Her Christian Louboutin Supra Fifre 120 thigh-high boots are so ‘Pretty Woman’.

“Par Coeur Gala” for Association Make A Wish with Tony Parker, Paris

Eva Longoria’s purple strapless dress neither excites nor disappoints.

It’s on-the-fence OK.

Gucci and Windsor Smith Honor Dr. James Orbinski and Dignitas International, New York

Camilla Belle opted for a navy blue wool kilt dress with buckle detailing down one-side.

Her look is paired with Gucci midnight blue platform heels and grey Gucci clutch.

2nd Annual ACM Honors, Nashville

I have grouped Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler together because they are equally tragic.

Seriously ladies what happened to you?

Did you lose Naeem Khan and Georges Chakra’s number?

The Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2010 collection didn’t fail to bring us a stunning presentation of mini dresses.

The highlight for me were the denim pieces, as this is a material Azria hasn’t used before. He also used light jersey fabrics to create the iconic bandage dress, which only clung closer to the models slender figures.

To keep us interested the dresses were tie-dyed, patchworked and crochet. One white dress was slashed immediately reminding me of a similar dress Alexander Wang presented last season.

Models almost took a tumble, but thankfully they didn’t hit the deck.

See Amanda Bynes, a colour other than black works.

The actress had a rare moment of not wearing black to walk the red carpet wearing a blush bandage dress, which she paired with a BCBG Max Azria blazer and Herve Leger Black Snake-Embossed leather sandals.

Mischa Barton was the only one to opt for one of the more interesting runway Herve Leger dresses from the Fall 2009 collection.

Her dress was paired with chained heels which Amanda Bynes also wore and a silver cuff.

Hilary Duff bandage dress hugs her in all the right places.

Gwyneth Paltrow wore her sexy gold and silver sparkling Versace Spring 2009 mini strapless dress back in February, when she took to the stage at the 2009 Grammy Awards.

She kept her pins under-wraps by pairing her dress with dove grey opaque tights and gunmetal grey heels.

Mischa Barton was snapped on the set of her new show “The Beautiful Life”, wearing the same dress a few weeks ago.

She accessorized her look with a pair of contrastingly edgy studded ankle boots and let the dress do the rest of the talking.

I would’ve given this to Gwyneth easily if it weren’t for the tights. She has endless long legs, and she was indoors why did she feel the need for the tights?

Mischa wins by default.

GLSEN’s 2009 LA Respect Awards kick-off party, LA

We have yet another smile from Ginnifer Goodwin.  Maybe it’s because she knows she looks so cute wearing a Brian Reyes Dolman polo blouse dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

I love the Clark Kent hairstyle.

The Boathouse, London

UK singer Little Boots wore a strapless Basso & Brooke Resort 2010 dress when she performed at the Boathouse in London this week.

This gorgeously colourful dress with fold and structured details, has a black background unlike many of the other pieces from this collection which have a white background giving the pieces a cloudy rainbow sky feel to them.

Planet Hollywood, New York

Alexis Bledel made an appearance at Planet Hollywood in New York to promote her new movie “Post Grad”.

The actress opted for a Kimberly Ovitz Jacob jersey dress, which unfortunately revealed her pale bra.

Wear a black bra under a black dress. It’s simple mathematics.

H&M ankle boots were added to give her look a bit of an edge.

Post Grad Screening And Party, LA

She faired much better at the LA screening wearing a navy Sachin and Babi for Ankasa Resort 2010 draped dress embellished with black sequins.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

We don’t see Renee Zellweger for months and now she’s popping up everywhere promoting her latest movie.

The actress arrive at Letterman wearing an electric blue strapless dress with silver Louboutin heels.

I’ll take a wild guess that it’s by Carolina Herrera.

I wanted to love this because of the vibrant colour, but those fold details on the skirt really don’t work for me, especially on the long shot.

Her frizzy hair doesn’t appeal either.

Charlotte Ronson and JCPenney Celebrate “I Heart Ronson” Line, New York

Mischa Barton continues to party despite her recent troubles.

The actress – haven’t called her that in a long while – wore a black tank top with a colourful floral Topshop skirt.

To add more colour into the mix she paired her look with a hot pink twisted rope necklace her favourite Alexander McQueen pink strapped open-toe booties.

Hilary Duff adds a tribal print scarf to add interest to her t-shirt and leggings look.

Her look was complete with an Alexander McQueen Faithfull leather glove clutch.

When I see Sophia Bush at this event, all I can think of is ‘Why was she not invited to the InStyle Magazine’s Summer Soiree?’

That stylish event was right up her street.

The look is very shopping at The Grove.  For once Sophia is not doing it for me.
