“A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s” Benefit, New York
Whilst trying to keep up with Fashion Week, LeeAnn sent me a note to tell me to make sure I looked at the Dries van Noten Spring 2010 collection.
I’m glad she did because I instantly fell in love with the ethnic prints and the one-sleeved blazers.
I often wondered who would be the first to wear this collection, and that honour went to Julianne Moore.
She looked fabulous in this hard to pull off ensemble.
Her ethnic print wrap dress was paired with a black blazer trimmed with a white strip to complete this unusually chic look.
Granted it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love it.
Katharine McPhee blows me away wearing a Marchesa Fall 2009 one shoulder sculpted dress.
I’m even loving the hair with this look.
Either I’m coming down with something or Katharine just hit her first home run.
Alexa Chung opted for a cheap yet chic Topshop studded one-shoulder dress paired with booties.
She arrived wearing a questionable leopard print coat.
‘Late Show With David Letterman’, New York
My first reaction was that I didn’t like Ashley Greene in this Bottega Veneta Resort 2010 striped suit, but after so many great red carpet dresses this look feels refreshing.
It also shows that both Ashley and her stylist are thinking outside the box, and not playing it safe.
My main problem is actually the striped shirt, because the suit is not so bad.
I think I would’ve loved this look if the shirt was a solid colour, or if Ashley had worn the same suit Penelope Cruz wore back in July.
London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, London
Anna Friel loves Antonio Berardi as she has worn his pieces many times before.
Not so many times that she needs an intervention like Leona Lewis does from Vivienne Westwood, but enough to know she appreciates his stunning designs.
The textured dress had an asymmetrical chiffon detail that moved beautifully on the runway.
Black pumps complete the look.
Christmas Illuminations Launch On The Champs-Elysees, Paris
Just last week I was complaining that we haven’t seen enough of Balenciaga’s Fall 2009 collection on the red carpet, and here we have Charlotte Gainsbourg upping the count to make 3 following Carine Roitfeld and Salma Hayek.
The actress arrived at this event wearing one of the printed plunging blouses paired with the lace bandeau, leather pants and peep-toe heels.
Aching cool as always.
“Brothers” New York Screening
For some reason I just can’t fall in love with Natalie Portman wearing this cute Jason Wu Spring 2010 strapless mini dress.
The dress has all the ingredients to make Natalie shine: the ruffles, the colour, the length and the contrasting waist belt, but it gets no love from me and I can’t figure out why.
The actress paired her dress with Aldo purple heels.
Emma Roberts opted for a Miu Miu Resort 2010 summery dress brought down with thick tights.
Navyboot Store Opening, Germany
Monica Cruz hasn’t yet met a Herve Leger bandaged dress she didn’t like.
This is 3 in a row.
Before Cheryl Cole, Cat Deeley was the nations sweetheart.
The TV presenter arrived at this event wearing Givenchy Holly strappy leather heels with a Preen Matt Lightening dress.
If you are thinking the dress looks a bit awkward, that’s because the thick strap on Cat’s right shoulder – as we are looking at it – should be on her left shoulder.
Regardless she still looks fabulous.
