57th San Sebastian Film Festival Closing Ceremony & “Mother and Child” Photocall

57th San Sebastian Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Kerry Washington knocks me out again for the second time today, as she looked stunning wearing a Zuhair Murad Fall 2009 Couture dress.

She wore her exquisite ivory and black printed silk puff sleeve dress with the silver metal runway belt, and black Christian Louboutin pigalle heels.

Naomi Watts wore a Stella McCartney Fall 2009 black jumpsuit, with a lace yoke, lace sleeves and lace inserts in the pants.

The pants aren’t as revealing as the runway look, which helps this look work for Naomi.

She thankfully didn’t stick to boring black accessories, adding a satin green clutch and fuschia pink heels.

“Mother and Child” Photocall

Completing a hat-trick of perfect looks, Kerry looked divine wearing a black and nude Malandrino Resort 2010 tulle draped blouse with a black pencil skirt, black patent belt and her pigalle’s.

Which look deserves to be in the running for BDOTW?

Naomi Watts packed very light for this trip to Spain, because she wore the same white blouse and Stella McCartney Resort 2010 black cropped jacket just 3 days earlier in New York for the White Ribbon Alliance Dinner.

At least she packed fresh pants and a new pair of 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.

"Extreme Beauty" In Vogue and Dolce & Gabbana Party

Eva Herzigova is the only one to really stand out at this event, because her Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 corset dress, is so different from her previous look earlier yesterday.

I really hated this dress on the runway, because it looked so bulky, but Eva rocks it.

Eva Mendes opted for a red Dolce & Gabbana dress, which was accented with the rosette belt, sans jewels.

She could have really sparkled at this night time event with some added bling.

Fredia Pinto also disappointed in a Dolce & Gabbana pink mini dress with a jeweled rosette belt. That’s because it was very similar to the dress she had worn earlier in the day.

Even the shoes are the same.

I love Kate Hudson’s golden sparkling ensemble, even the cape. But the hair is too mumsy for this look imo.

New mum Naomi Watts looked the most relaxed at this event, wearing a Helmet Lang-esqe suit, with a ruffled collared blouse.

I love the cropped tapered pants, and the turned up sleeves.

Scarlett Johansson continues to slip for me. Although her body looks amazing in this grey animal print dress, she lacks any spark.

Elsa Pataky’s black strapless mini dress with gold embroidery is gorgeous, and her platforms compliment the dress really well, but I am not crazy about her bouffant.

German model Nadja Auermann wore a satin maroon Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 dress with black floral paillettes covering the dress. Those paillettes were accentuated with ivory pearls.

This is a truly stunning creation. There is a lot going on but Nadja wears it so well.

Her fellow German model Claudia Schiffer also wore a dress from Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 collection, but hers was considerably quieter than Nadja’s, but Claudia was equally beautiful.

Miuccia Prada walked the red carpet in her own Fall 2009 collection as you would expect.

This look in very Maximus -Russell Crowe- in Gladiator.

Costume Institute Gala – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Camilla Belle NEVER lets me down. She is always stunning, always well put together and always smiling so beautifully.

Last night she wore a gorgeous Armani Privé Spring 2008 gown.

The aquamarine silk organza tiered gown had an origami Swarovski crystal encrusted ribboned one shoulder strap, with the same detail on the hip.

Pretty In Pink Award
No glitter, no over the top bling (apart from her wedding ring), no big hair, just Beyonce letting this Giorgio Armani Privé pale pink strapless silk organza gown speak for itself.

Her hair was pulled back to reveal those amazing earrings.

That shade of pink lipstick beautifully to compliments her gown.

Not a hint of Tina Knowles. Adore her.

Best White Award
Naomi Watts wore a Theirry Mulger pleated white halter gown with jeweled detail and matching pleated throw, which evokes images of old Hollywood glamour, especially with her beautifully styled hair.

If not for Camilla, she would have won Best Dressed.

Best Ruffles Award
Kate Mara’s canary yellow Zac Posen Spring 2008 one shouldered belted gown is stunning. I am glad she wore her hair back to allow the dress to shine.

Best Black Award
Ziyi Zhang always looks stunning in Giorgio Armani Couture. She last wore an Armani Privé gown to one of the Oscar parties this year, and last night she dazzled in another Giorgio Armani Spring 2008 Couture gown.

This black one shoulder silk organza gown has a fitted bustier, with black patent and Swarovski crystal details with origami-like ribbon flowers that cascade down the skirt.

Golden Girl Award
Taylor Swift definitely the golden girl wearing a Badgley Mischka Fall 2008 gold and bronze ombré sequin and crystal fishtail gown. The colour works well with her milky skin.

She accessorize her look with Badgley Mischka Couture shoes, Badgley Mischka jewelry and a gold Badgley Mischka clutch.

Drop dead gorgeous.

Best British/Blatant Copy Award
Although Cat Deeley’s feathery Burberry dress is almost an exact copy of Mary-Kate Olsen’s dress from last year, she does look amazing in it.

Best Versace Award
Many others wore Versace last night, but Amber Valletta’s stood out for me.

I adored this Versace Couture Spring 2008 metallic blush gown with and voluminous shoulder detail when it was first presented back in January. I imagine it on an exotic beauty like Penelope Cruz, but Amber more than does this dress justice.

Thank God It’s Not Black Again Award
Bravo for Mr Armani for getting the stunning Julia Roberts in something other than black.

She is amazing in this platinum Giorgio Armani Privé gown.

The scooped neckline is delightful, and is accented by an antique brooch.

The beading on a mesh overlay really brings this gown alive.

Most Daring Award
Lake Bell is usually a cute dresses type of girl, but went vampy in this Balmain Fall 2008 crystal-embroidered lightning bolts leather dress and Burberry heels.

Best Cape Award
Bravo to Thandie Newton for being one of the only celebrities to wear a cape to this Superhero’s event. Her strapless lace dress and cape is from the Chanel Fall 2008 collection.

Best Snap-Back Award
Did Jennifer Lopez really have twins?

You would not think so seeing her here in this asymmetric tiered gown, with jeweled detail. Back to her beautiful best.

Most Improved Award
I hated Sarah Larson’s Oscar dress, so I was happy to see her improve dramatically, in this black vintage Giorgio Armani black one-shouldered beaded silk jersey gown, from the Spring 1997 collection.

Best Va Va Voom Award
Gisele Bündchen not only brought along Tom Brady, who looks very dapper in his Versace suit, but she also brought her A game. I swear my chin almost hit my table when I saw her in this pink Versace Fall 2008 halter-neck gown.

S T U N N I N G.

Best Superhero Theme Award
In this silver embroidered dress Chanel Haute Couture dress, Anna Wintour is very much living up to the “Superhearo” part of the “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy” theme.

She looks like she could save the world in this dress.

Who needs a clutch when you have those pockets?

Best Fantasy Theme Award
Scarlett Johansson wore Dolce & Gabbana, but it was her huge ring that most people were looking out for, following her announced that she and actor Ryan Reynolds were engaged.

She was one of the few that got into the spirit of the event, wearing this cute nude fairy ensemble.

Best De Ju Vu Award
When I saw Eva Longoria in this Marchesa Fall 2008 strapless ruffled gown, I instantly thought of Lucy Liu’s Zac Posen dress to the same event last year, and Jessica Alba’s Oscar dress. But Eva stands alone looking drop-dead gorgeous in her own gown.

For once the dress is not skin-tight nor does it have an open back.

Most Daring Award
Ashley Olsen’s black keyhole dress was custom-made by Diane von Furstenberg and she looks amazing and very sexy in it.

Maybe Ashley felt a little self conscious in her dress, because I could not find one photo of her not at her sister side.

She is still loving the nude make-up I see.

Best Yellow Award
Molly Sims always turns it up a notch on the big stage. Last night she wore a stunning haltered yellow Versace Spring 2008 jersey gown, with gorgeous Chopard jewels.

Best Strapless Award
This Michael Kors dress that Mary J Blige is wearing is simple, yet not boring, sophisticated and well suited to her shape.

Her earrings are slightly over the top, but I can forgive that for her looking so amazing in this dress.

Best Mini Award
For this prestigious event you would not expect many to wear a mini cocktail dress, but Diane Kruger did, and with amazing results wearing Alberta Ferretti.

The dress was gathered throughout and had a jeweled detail on the shoulder. The fuschia peep-toes were a nice touch.

Her beau Josh Jackson is happy to let his girl shine, as he stands back in a white/black tuxedo from Alberta Ferretti.

Best Monochrome Award
I love it when Dita von Teese wears something other than just black.

This Marchesa Fall 2008 strapless black and white embroidered gown with feather detail on the hem, is just the kind of dramatic dress I would expect Dita to wear.

Dita does not do safe.

Best Designer Award
If ever there was an award for Best At Wearing Your Own Clothes, it would have to be given to Donatella Versace.

Donatella looks beautiful in her own designed strapless fleshy peach coloured dress, with an embroidered detail which nips in her tiny waist. To add further glamour, the dress is completed with train.

Just OK Award
I don’t love Emmy Rossum in this Phi dress, but I don’t hate it either. It is just OK.

Emmy should really start saving the magnificent dresses she wears to smaller events, to big events like this.

She accessorized her dress with Chopard jewels and a Mary Norton clutch.

Best Colour Award
Eva Mendes aqua dress is stunning against her caramel skin.

This Calvin Klein dress itself is very interesting in design with its varying shapes.

Eva’s stunning jewels are by Bulgari.

Best Embellishments Award
This would not be a prestigious event without some Elie Saab bling.

Hilary Duff, who a guest of Allure magazine, was lucky enough to wear this stunning Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture gown. I would have preferred one of the bigger stars to have wore this gown, but young Hilary does it justice.

Most Consistent Award
Do I really to say how much I LOVE this red satin Dolce & Gabbana gown on Iman?

Oh my lord she is killing me with her perfection.

The bodice is a very familiar style for Dolce & Gabbana, but they have added a full skirt and a jeweled detail on the hip to give Iman that oomph, that helps her radiate her beauty.

Best Campaign Girl Award
Jennifer Connelly, the face of Balenciaga does not let Nicolas Ghesquière down in this Balenciaga Fall 2008 black and white dress.

Even her sky high heels are from the Fall 2008 collection.

Her necklace is amazing.

Most Colourful Award
Kate Bosworth like Diane Kruger, also did not opt for the long flowing ball gown. Instead she wore this psychedelic vintage Chanel couture dress with a jagged hem.

Her colourful Pierre Hardy shoes gave the allusion from the front that she was not wearing shoes, but they had a transparent strap.

Having The Most Fun/Best Accentuated Waist Award
Kate Moss with and wearing Stella McCartney, looked to be having the most fun at this event.

Kate’s dress was beautifully accentuated with a silver belt, over her dove grey scoop-neck chiffon dress.

Best At Staying In Character Award
The sequin detail on the bodice of Kristin Davis’ Michael Kors Fall 2008 is beautiful without being too over the top. Very Charlotte York McDougall Goldenblatt.

Best Use Of Colours Award
Normally I with ruched bodice, oversized bow, uneven hem and multi-coloured tiering of this Peter Som Fall 2008 dress, I may have been put off, but Maggie Gyllenhaal is one of the few who could pull this dress off.

Her Christian Louboutin Rosazissimo feather shoes are a perfect compliment.

Simple Yet Sophisticated Award
Sofia Coppola, who will be taking over from Victoria Beckham in Marc Jacobs next advertising campaign, keeps it simple in this stunning white satin Marc Jacobs drop waist gown.

Borderline Award
Michelle Monaghan wore this this burnt J Mendel one-shouldered gown. I particular love the leaf detail.

Best Rock n’ Roll Award
Zoe Kravitz kept to her unique style in this sea green crushed velvet gown. She added at touch of glam with a white feather boa.
