Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Event

The Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Event took place at the Greystone Manor Supperclub in West Hollywood, California, last night.

Busy Philipps: The ‘Cougar Town’ actress is frustratingly inconsistent on the red carpet. She wore an Opening Ceremony dress with a shirt collar, printed top, and striped skirt accented with an orange belt. I would’ve liked to have seen this dress on someone like Lily Collins or Emma Roberts as the look feels too busy – pardon the pun – for the blonde actress. A high ponytail and Alexander McQueen shoes completed her look.

Jennifer Morrison: The actress is almost unrecognisable with flaming red hair à la Florence Welch. She was the one exception, wearing a pretty Andrew Gn Spring 2012 strapless dress. Usually one to wear light summery hues, I’m guessing this dark, mysterious look was to work with her new persona.

Olivia Munn: The actress wore a simple black ASOS midi tank body-conscious dress. She accessorized with a Stella & Dot divine statement necklace and carried a Linea Pelle clutch. I loved the look until I got to the black Gucci ankle boots. Stumptifying.

Who Wore Burberry Prorsum Better? Kate Bosworth or Monica

By total coincidence Kate Bosworth and Monica wore the same Burberry Prorsum cropped leather jacket on the same day.

Kate technically wore it first as she was in London for the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2011 presentation.

She paired her jacket with a studded and spiked skirt and quilted booties from Burberry.

Monica wore her jacket to the 1st Annual Cartoon Network’s “Hall Of Game” Awards in Santa Monica, California.

Her look was more casual. She wore denim leggings, a simple white top, snake skin Christian Louboutin ‘Lady Daf’ triple stacked platform heels and an Alexander McQueen scarf.

Both girls totally rocked this look, but I’m going to give this win to Monica for her effortless approach to putting together this look.

You can buy their Burberry Prorsum leather jacket from Net-A-Porter.com.

Runway To The 2010 BET Awards Stage

Queen Latifah was the gracious host of the 2010 BET Awards, so she had several wardrobe changes.

One of her looks was a beautiful Edition by Georges Chakra Spring 2010 gown.

She looked stunning in her black crepe fitted gown with silver stone embellished shoulder details.

Monica shut it down wearing a black Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2010 Couture dress.

I know many of you are o.v.e.r bold shoulders, but I thinks this is one fierce look.

I love the pussy bow to add a touch of chic elegance.

Despite not being a fan of thigh-high boots, I think they work perfectly with her dress.

Keyshia Cole rocked the stage wearing a black sleeveless top with a tomato red Willow Fall 2010 asymmetric draped tulle skirt.

“The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” – Monica In Gucci

Monica new album “Still Standing” is currently #1 on the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B charts and is #2 (under Justin Bieber’s “My World 2.0”) on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Monica not only continues to promote her new album , but she also continues to show us that she has great style.

She looked stunning as she performed her latest single “Everything to Me” on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” this week.

Her Gucci Spring 2010 black dress had cut-out details on the waist which was accented with the Gucci trademark metal embroidery.

I love Monica’s sensible non-try-hard/’look what I can afford’ approach to fashion.

It’s really refreshing for an R&B diva.

“Still Standing” Promotional Tour – Monica In Alexander Wang & Balmain

It’s been a very busy week for Monica as the singer currently on a promotional tour for her new album “Still Standing” which was release yesterday.

Despite only being on sale for one day, she’s already on course to reach the #1 spot on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart this week.

The singer delighted fans with an in-store “Meet and Greet” in Atlanta yesterday.

With her trademark crop she wore an Alexander Wang belted cardigan from the Spring 2010 collection.

The cardigan has quilted leather trim at shoulders, which is the same detail that appears on the Alexander Wang dress Rihanna wore recently.

Monica also appeared on BET’s 106 & Park this week as a co-hosted with Terrence J.

The 29-year-old R&B veteran performed her new single ‘Everything To Me’ live on the show.

She sported an edgy look which included boots, lace-up leather pants and a Balmain denim jacket.

I’m sure Alex Curran already has this jacket in her closet.

Runway To “Everything to Me” Music Video – Monica In Alexander McQueen

On February 8, Monica shot the promo for her video “Everything to Me” which will be the first single from her new album “Still Standing” which is due for release on March 23rd.

One of the main looks for her video sees her wearing a poufy sleeved red gown from the late Alexander McQueen’s Pre-Fall 2009 collection.

I just love the detail on the back.

Monica has long been an admirer of Alexander McQueen, as she’s worn looks by the late designer many times before.

According the clapper board, this shoot took place just 3 days before the designer tragically passed away.

In another scene she wears an Alexander McQueen look from the Fall 2009 collection.

This blouse with a rosette detail formed part of the hounds-tooth theme which dominated this collection.

I loved this blouse and I glad that Monica has worn this fabulous piece, pairing it with a black pencil skirt.

After Alexander McQueen’s death Monica released a statement which said.

“My new video “Everything To Me,” features several exclusive pieces from Alexander McQueen, a beautiful reflection of his artistic spirit and love for fashion. I sincerely and lovingly dedicate my video to Alexander McQueen and his unforgettable legacy.”

I’m working on a post for McQueen’s final collection which I will post next week.
