Armani 5th Avenue Store Opening

Victoria Beckham’s street is impeccable, but her red carpet style has not impressed me until last night.

The fashion designer, who has just shown her second collection in New York this week, outshone everyone on the red carpet wearing a one shouldered crystal embellished nude mini Armani dress.

I would have preferred a strappy sandals, but I do love her matching satin pumps too.

It wasn’t a surprise to see Alicia Keys at this event, as she has just a close working relationship with Giorgio Armani.

The gorgeous singer arrived wearing a long black coat, which she wore at the Max Azria show, which she removed to reveal a stunning coral Armani sheath dress.

She wore her dress with a amazing pair of jewel encrusted Armani Privé Fall 2007 slingbacks, which have a contrast bow on the side.

January Jones wore a stunning red Armani crystal embellished dress. Despite the colour, I expected something with more pizazz from Miss Jones.

Maybe it’s just the hair that is not working for me.

Zoe Saldana worked a 20s vibe with Marcel waves, which I think worked really well with her shimmering white dress.

I love the rosette detail on the shoulder.

Elsa Pataky is usually a lot more expressive on the red carpet, whether it’s too revealing, too short, or too unusual.

So imagine my surprised that she wore a black tuxedo, with a sexy sheer top. Too safe for Elsa.

Despite me fully not understanding what Molly Sims does – like Joy Bryant – I always appreciate her efforts on the red carpet.

She is always impeccable, which is why I’m really baffled by this fringed crochet number, over a black ensemble.

Across the Armani ranges, I am shocked that this is the best she could do last night.

I believe that is suppose to be red lipstick, but I am seeing orange.

This is a really nice skirt suit that Solange Knowles wore.

Nice if you are Cate Blanchett, or a lady who lunches, or someone who has the style, grace and sophistication to pull it off, but on a 20-something year old girl? NO.

And that neon pink clutch with that suit? NO, it does not work.

Does this girl have a stylist?

When will she find a balance and wear something appropriate?

If Kim Kardashian can do it, Solange has NO excuse.

Social Events Of The Week

Louis Vuitton Hosts A Tribute To Stephen Sprouse Cocktails, New York

I don’t know how, but I almost missed this one.

How Agyness Deyn makes it onto any Best Dressed List continues to baffle me.

The model arrived at this event wearing a LBD, a graffiti style day-glo oversized vintage Sprouse blazer and Doc Martins. She accessorised with an orange crucifix and limited edition Louis Vuitton bag.

I am not feeling the graffiti bags, and I am hating Deyn ensemble.

Brook Shields looks delightful wearing a blush pink strapless Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2008 dress.

The dress has a taffeta skirt with a gathered jersey bodice. I was not a fan of this collection, but Brook has made me fall in love with this dress.

Eva Amurri opted for a black fur gilt from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 collection, to go with her all black ensemble.

She completes her look with platform heels from the same collection.

Molly Sims works this red blazer as a dress from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2008 collection.

“My Bloody Valentine 3D” Screening, LA

Jamie King wore a Lanvin Fall 2008 black and brown banded cocktail dress, which had a mesh yoke.

She wore her amazing dress with black Christian Louboutin slingbacks.

Pre-Golden Globes Luncheon, LA

January Jones gives us the cold shoulder in this Stella McCartney Spring 2009 LBD.

I really like Jessica Alba’s ensemble, especially the lavender pants, but I am not crazy about the hair or lack of make-up here.

Opening Of The London Boat Show 2009, London

Kelly Brook channels her inner Olive Oyl, as she salutes the press at the London Boat Show launch today. The TV presenter wore a stripey Diane von Furstenberg Resort 2009 strapless dress especially for the occasion, with red strappy sandals.

The 8th Annual Awards Season Diamond Fashion Show, LA

Rumer Willis’ delicate nude dress is gorgeous, but as usual, the hair just does not work for me.

Olivia Wilde is so angelic wearing this two tone chiffon Jason Wu Spring 2009 dress. She really is becoming one of my faves on the red carpet.

Debra Messing’s steel grey draped Donna Karan dress, is better than the one she wore at the People’s Choice Awards.

A darker haired Andrea Bowen looks delightful in this colour-block dress.

Garcelle Beauvais is gorgeous in a green Karen Zambos Baretta silk dress.

Taraji P. Henson wore a cream and orange floral Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with complimenting accessories.

CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute Red Carpet

I am in actual shock that Jessica Biel thought that this two-tone Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2006 dress was a good idea.

The yellow/taupe colour combinations are interesting, but the bodice is too busy and looks unfinished with the knot and asymmetric detail.

Although boring Biel tried to spice things up, it just does not work for me.

Kate Beckinsale wore a satin YSL dress with a gold lining, which very much looked like a robe.

She wore her dress with black patent belt which also had a gold lining and black platform sandals.

Leelee Sobieski wore maxi kimono dress, which was printed with light pastel stripes and circles.

She carried a yellow clutch, which complimented the stripes on her dress and her necklace.

Salma Hayek shows off her asset in this plunge-neck electric blue Gucci gown. Unfortunately it is really creased, and looks like it could do with a iron going over it.

Lucy Liu continues to set the red carpet on fire with another stunning dress.

Her LBD really shines in the light, and the exaggerated hips gives her a nice silhouette.

Eliza Dushku sure does grab your attention in this split to the thigh Dolce & Gabbana gown.

That poor man looks like he is about to keel over.

Selena Gomez wore an ivory ruffled top with a black pencil skirt and black pumps.

I love the look, but the bangs aren’t cut correctly, as the left side appears longer than the right side.

Taylor Swift wore a similar look to Selena, but her dress is a Trina Turk Astra dress with a satin dress, a split V neck and jeweled banding at waist.

She completes her look with black peep-toes.

Rachael Leigh Cook keeps it simple in a LBD, but it is her pink butterfly adorned bag that really stands out.

Molly Sims jeweled brooch really made her two-toned grey black halter Alberta Ferretti gown more interesting.

Metropolitan Opera 125th Season Opening Night Gala

Taylor Momsen recently had a dramatic hair cut, and although the cut look great, it’s not quite working with her beautiful red pleated layered strapless Marchesa Fall 2008 gown, which has rosette details on the bodice.

The teenager compliments her stunning gown, with ruby red lips.

God this woman gets more and more beautiful every time I see her.

Georgina Chapman, the perfect brand ambassador for her collection, wore a midnight blue Marchesa Resort 2009 asymmetric gown, with stunning jeweled detail.

With her hair pulled back, we are able to see her very expensive earrings, which compliment her gown.

Helena Christensen wowed in a more dramatic way, wearing a spectacular peachy gown, with a long train, and stunning jeweled clutch.

The colour is so buttery against her olive skin.

Molly Sims is another model who makes looking stunning on the red carpet very easy.

Molly wore an ivory mermaid J.Mendel gown, with tiny embellishments on the bodice, to give her a very ethereal look.

Parker Posey wore a pink and pink Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2008 dress, which I love, but I wish she would have ditched the furry bag for her photo op.

Christie Brinkley with her trademark megawatt smile, wore a black taffeta strapless Ralph Lauren dress with a tiered skirt with feathers at the top tier .

Designer Tory Burch wore an olive Lanvin Pre-Fall 2008 Grecian gown, with a black velvet contrasting bow.
