Runway To 2010 Elle Style Awards – Naomi Campbell In Alexander McQueen

Best Tribute Dress Award
As I predicted in an earlier post, Naomi Campbell did wear Alexander McQueen to the 2010 Elle Style Awards last night.

The model looked stunning in her snake print Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 mini dress as she collected her “Outstanding Contribution” Award.

This award was presented to her for her 25 year career in fashion, and for her work as global patron of ‘The White Ribbon Alliance’ – the charity aiming to reduce maternal mortality in the world’s poorest countries.

Runway To “Valentino: The Last Emperor” Milan Premiere – Naomi Campbell In Dolce & Gabbana

Naomi Campbell walked the red carpet at the “Valentino: The Last Emperor” premiere in Milan last night with her billionaire boyfriend Vladislav Doronin.

The model appeared to have arrived from the North Pole wearing a super furry Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 coat.

The white furry coat had contrasting voluminous shoulders, plus a black ribbon tied to her waist.

This could have been a cute look, but those shoulders are too angry bear for my liking. Even her boyfriend appears to have a “What the…?” look on his face.

Runway To “Thurgood Marshall College Fund Fashion Show” – Naomi Campbell In Dennis Basso

Remember a time when Naomi Campbell starred in a PETA ad proclaiming she’d rather go naked than wear fur?

Well that was 15 years ago, and whilst the supermodel still looks as stunning as ever her stance on fur has changed, because she happily wore a fur trimmed coat to the “Thurgood Marshall College Fund Fashion Show” in New York this weekend.

Under her coat Naomi wore a black fitted Dolce & Gabbana dress with square toed Alexander McQueen black heels.

The supermodels change of heart may have come about after being named as face Dennis Basso’s furs.

In the campaign the model wears a series of luxurious coats made from Russian sable.

These coats sell for up to £126,750 each, so imagine what her fee was.

Social Events Of The Weekend

Conde Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards, New York

Mary Louise Parker has been getting in touch with her flirty side lately, as she’s been wearing a lot of shorter cocktail dresses.

On this occasion she picked a Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 black and white floral dress which is modified from the runway version.

Parker’s dress is narrower on the skirt and is off-the-shoulder instead of one-shouldered.

I really love this look.  It’s so relaxed and fun as you would expect from any Marc Jacobs piece.

Kim Kardashian Celebrates Her 29th Birthday At TAO, Las Vegas

Some of you have accused Kim Kardashian of ‘brand hopping’ i.e. the second a label is hot, Kim’s wearing it.

We’ve seen her do with with Herve Leger, Balmain, Altuzarra and now Brian Lichtenberg.

I personally don’t really have a problem with this because she appears to be doing this earlier on, and not at the point when Heidi Montag has discovered the brand.

At her 26th birthday party this weekendshe was the golden girl glowing wearing a Brian Litchenberg Fall 2009 shouldered padded hooded mini dress, paired with black ankle boots.

It appears my prays for the end of the ankle boots trend are yet to be answered.

BFF Ciara was there, looking sexy in a Rock & Republic spiked leather jacket over a velvet playsuit.

Without even trying Ciara out does her host.

This girl is to gorgeous for words.

4th Annual Black Girls Rock! Awards, New York

Naomi Campbell looked radiant wearing a sexy Alexander Wang one-shouldered bandage dress, which she paired with a furry cape.

The cape may seem a bit OTT, but if anyone can make it work it’s Miss Naomi.

“Avatar” Stage Greeting, Japan

Zoe Saldana looked very elegant wearing a black Giambattista Valli strapless bustier dress, with ruffled detail on her hip.

Everything is perfect here from her hair to her jewels to her dress.

Amy Adams wore the gown version of this dress to the SAG Awards earlier this year.

The First Annual Noble Humanitarian Awards, LA

Nicole Richie looks heavenly wearing cream chiffon Jasmine Di Milo gown.

Motherhood clearly agrees with her, she’s glowing.

Teri Hatcher opted for a SuperDupa white Hugo Boss suit with gold peep-toes.

I would be petrified to wearing anything that pristine.

Runway To Simon Cowell’s 50 Birthday Party

I held off posting this for a day hoping we would get better pictures, but this is the best it’s going to get.

I’m so gutted we don’t get to see a full length picture of Cheryl Cole wearing the same Versace dress which Blake Lively wore to the Costume Institute gala.

Cheryl is so petite, so I would have been interested to see if she could carry off such a dress.

I love the dress, but the 80s style hair is a buzz kill.

Chloe Green daughter of Sir Phillip Green look gorgeous wearing the same Balmain gown we have seen Beyonce Knowles wear on the red carpet.

Again I wish I could see more of the dress, which she is carrying in order not to drag her £10,000 gown on the floor.

My absolute favourite was Terri Seymour, the long suffering ex-girlfriend of Simon Cowell.

With the wind in her hair and the skirt of her Marchesa Resort 2009 strapless embroidered gown, she looks like an angel even though both Taylor Swift and Mary J Blige wore this same dress in different colours last year.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell wows in a white satin Atelier Versace Fall 2009 lace up gown, as she sparkles with a diamond and pearl necklace by Fawaz Gruosi.

Dannii Minogue and Amanda Holden both opted for Ralph & Russo gowns.

Dannii looked effortlessly chic in a black and gold Ralph & Russo dress, whilst Amanda was blinged out in a white heavily embellished gown.

Hopefully Hello! or OK! magazine will feature non photoshopped pictures of this event.

I hate those magazines when they photoshop guests together in pictures. It so incredibly obvious and tacky.

Social Events Of The Week

“Precious” New York Premiere

I wish Paula Patton has opted for the metallic version of this Altuzarra Fall 2009 dress. It has more of a wow factor.

Her winklepickers were also a very bad choice.

Never again will I defend Mariah Carey in the ‘boobie’ debate.

Mariah has had some bad looks, but this has to be the WORST.

She look so incredibly tacky and has obviously been inspired by Amanda Bynes because she only wears LBDs lately.

The only thing that deserves a mention are her Jimmy Choo Billie Lizard-Print sandals

2009 Clinton Global Initiative Dinner, New York

Looking like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth Naomi Campbell look so sweet wearing a Issa Spring 2010 asymmetrical black and white print dress.

Naomi walked for the Issa Spring 2010 show, so she was obviously very taken with this adorable dress.

2009 VH1 Hip Hop Honors, New York

Eve walked this red carpet sporting the very same hairstyle as Rihanna.

She wore fingerless black leather gloves to go with her Helmut Lang Resort 2010 black leather and bondage jersey dress.

I love everything about the look excluding the heels.

Why wear such an interesting sexy dress, if you’re going to pair it with office heels?

“Good Hair” LA Premiere

For this event Eve wore a chocolate brown Charlotte Ronson Deco beading pleated dress.

I love the neckline, her pink lips and the fact that she didn’t wear the runway belt.

The dress is better off without it.

Nia Long sparkled wearing a silver batwing plunging blouse paired with champagne mini shorts.

Her make up flawless and show is her cute bob.

Montblanc Paris Flagship Boutique Launch

Eva Green gives me that old Hollywood glamour that I never tire of.

She wore an aqua Alberta Ferretti gown with draped detailing to accentuate the waist.

Such an elegant look from one we expect to always look so dramatic and gothic.

I love her tousled updo.

Brian Reyes Appearance At Neiman Marcus, LA

Rachel Bilson supported her long time friend Brian Reyes when he made an appearance at Neiman Marcus.

She kept her look very casual wearing in denim cut-offs, a black blazer, and white tank.

Her accessories were more colourful as she carried a scarlet red Jimmy Choo Blythe Tote, and the same leather boots we have seen on Sienna Miller.

“Couples Retreat” Australian Premiere

This is quite an interesting look for Kristen Bell.

We’re so used to seeing her in unstructured laid back looks, but this time she opted for a sleek Preen Peplette technical crepe dress paired with Jimmy Choo heels.

White Ribbon Alliance Dinner

I’ve been waiting for what feels like forever for someone to wear something from the Prada Fall 2009 collection, since Eva Mendes wore a look from the collection back in March.

Jessica Alba has fulfilled that wish by wearing a red velvet floral dress, but what the lord gives with one hand he takes away with the other and those thick black opaques kinda dull the excitement.

Nicole Kidman has been M.I.A. on the red carpet for a long while.

She returned in her favourite designer wearing a black fitted L’Wren Scott lacquered tweed dress with red peep-toes.

At this point I’m just grateful that the dress is not white.

Remember that rather crazy phase?

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection keeps going strong.

This time Naomi Watts wears a black cropped jacket from said collection with a white shirt and black pants.

Georgina Chapman has been accused by many of you for not shaking things up.

Well this is the 3rd time she has worn something not directly off her runway, which will hopefully please you non-believers.

I think her dress was modified from the purple strapless Marchesa Resort 2010 dress, as it has a very similar shape.

The pops of fuschia pink are cute and sassy.

Stunning as always.

I’ve run out of nice things to say about her.

CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi hosted the event looking gorgeous wearing a Giambattista Valli Fall 2009 peacock print coat/dress.

Why celebrities haven’t worn anything from this stunning collection still baffles me.

Uber models Naomi Campbell and Iman struck a pose together.

Naomi wore an angelic white Azzedine Alaïa dress and Azzedine Alaia python & patent strappy heels, whilst Iman opted for more colour wearing a mustard pencil dress which shows that she’s still got it.

Vogue’s Fashion Week Dinner Party

This picture of Victoria Beckham and Naomi Campbell really warmed my heart.

Two of our greatest British exports are in London to celebrate all that is good and great about fashion at Vogue’s private dinner party in London last night.

Victoria was – of course – wearing a dress from her new Spring 2010 collection.

I’m glad to see she opted for one of the cute sassy fun pieces, rather then the pencil dresses, and of course I’m thrilled that it’s a colourful piece.

The designer wore her dress with grey YSL Trib Two’s.

Naomi wore a modified, more wearable version of the Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 dress which Drew Barrymore wore recently.

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection will never become boring to me no matter how many pieces we see on celebs.

Natalia Vodianova stood alongside the creator of her ensemble wearing a gold embroidered jacket with a black embroidered dress which Stella McCartney wore to the Prada Congo Benefit earlier this year.

Stella opted for a sleek and sexy black coat dress paired with black heels.

I love what she’s done to her hair here, normally she has it pulled back.

Maybe this is her last chance to let her hair down before her much anticipated Spring 2010 show next month.

Agyness Deyn was also in attendance wearing a House of Holland Spring 2010 half black, half beige sleeveless leather tuxedo dress.

I know Agyness is one of fashion’s greatest chameleon, but I much prefer her as a blonde.

The supermodel wore her dress with heels from the same show.

Katie Grand posed alongside Victoria Beckham wearing a pretty pink Giles Spring 2008 strapless dress.

The dress with its voluminous skirt was decorated with laser cut floral details.

I love this dress.

Of course the Brit Pack were there.

Pixie Geldof has finally taken out those god awful extension.

Daisy Lowe wore a black two-tone dress, which is the theme of the night.

But Alexa Chung looked so so cute in her Luella Spring 2010 floral print dress with a heart-shape cut-out on the bodice.

Miley…THIS is the type of cute dress you should be wearing, but in saying that I would prefer it on Selena Gomez.

So proud to write about British fashion, everyone looked fabulous at this event. They could all be up for Best Dressed Of The Week minus Pixie and Daisy.
