Giorgio Armani Honors “Fair Game” Cocktail Party

Before the amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala, celebs gathered on board Giorgio Armani’s boat to honor the extraordinary work of the cast and crew of the upcoming Doug Liman-directed thriller “Fair Game.”

Elizabeth Banks opted to wear a cobalt blue, jewel encrusted Giorgio Armani Spring 2010 strapless dress with a thigh-high split.

I love her fresh take on this look, as she wore the dress without the runway belt and the shimmering blue layered skirt.

Natalie Imbruglia wore a cute striped Emporio Armani Spring 2010 skirt paired with a white top.

Her nautical look was quite appropriate considering the event took place on a boat.

Emily Blunt went totally against the grain and opted for a white Dior one shoulder gown which had silver embroidery on the skirt.

When did it stop becoming a faux pa to attend a designers event wearing another designer?

2010 Cannes Film Festival: “Robin Hood” Premiere – Natalie Imbruglia In Alberta Ferretti

Australian actress/singer Natalie Imbruglia was one of the first to arrive on the red carpet for the 2010 Cannes Film Festival premiere for “Robin Hood”.

It’s been a very long while since we last saw her on the red carpet, but she hasn’t lost any of her alluring charm.

She opted for this stunning champagne Alberta Ferretti Fall 2010 gown which many of you had hoped to see on the red carpet.

I just love those cascading crystal embellishments which drape around the neckline and bodice of the gown.

Despite the bling, she still added stunning Chopard jewels to her look which she also paired with a bronze metal Ferragamo clutch.

The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

Thandie Newton gets another gold star this time for wearing this multi-coloured Matthew Williamson Resort 2010 dress.

Her look is almost a head-to-toe carbon copy of the runway look, but Thandie opted for a skinny gold studded belt instead of the wider runway belt, and she has a smaller bejeweled clutch.

Nude cut-away ankle boots complete this stunning look.

Best Dressed of the Week is going to be very crowded with Thandie and Emma’s looks.

Roisin Murphy finally does one of the silk voluminous shoulder pieces from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 collection justice.

I’m quite surprised her look is so close to the runway version, as she usually mixes things up a bit.

Her many accessories included bejeweled belt, gold necklace and large copper sequined bag which she carried as a clutch.

My only disappointment are those black patent heels.  Too stale for this kind of look.

Little Boots arrived wearing the same D&G silk brocade jacket with leggings, which Emma Watson wore in her editorial for Elle UK.

Little Boots is quiet daring with her style choices, so I’m surprised she didn’t copy the runway look.

After her disappointing looks at Haute Couture Fashion Week, Dasha Zhukova gets back to her stunning best wearing a cream Azzedine Alaia dress with a frou-frou skirt and a matching waist belt.

Her dress is gorgeous which she complements with a black and white print cropped jacket and Azzedine Alaia shell decorated heels.

After giving birth to her first child a few months ago Tess Daly has already snapped back to her perfect best.

The TV presenter showed off her stunning pins in this gold See by Chloé mini dress with a tiered bodice, which was folded in the skirt to add subtle volume.

Tess accessorized with some very sexy Jimmy Choo Billie Lizard-print sandals and mirrored clutch.

Meg Matthews continues to channel a very demure look. The wild rock chick seems to be a thing of the past.

Meg is wearing the black version of the same Antonio Berardi tweed crew neck dress she wore to the “Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince” UK Premiere.

Poppy Delevigne looks super sexy wearing a long sleeved black embellished mini dress with a pair of Topshop frill sandals.

Lily Collins has walked many red carpets, but I’m still yet to see her do anything noteworthy.

Phil Collins’ daughter is supposed to be an actress but I couldn’t name a single film or TV show she has been in.

Lily wore a lace Topshop lace bodycon dress with some Topshop black and gold sandals which very much look like Louis Vuitton Spicy sandals.

Gold jewelery and a black patent clutch completed the look.

Erin O’Connor wore a plunging jade-green Donna Karan Grecian style dress.

The shapeless dress should drown Erin’s slender frame, but the drapes and her elegant stature prevent that.

Natalie Imbruglia red gown is gorgeous but the Chanel black and white bag is so heavy it feels like a slap in the face.

A black clutch would have been much more subtle.

Olivia Palmero wore a champagne coloured dress with a dazzlingly Zara clutch, Topshop leather disc jacket, and Topshop velcro strapped heels.

Either these girls love Topshop as much as I do, or the retailer sponsored this event.

Who Wore Jasmine Di Milo Better? Natalie Imbruglia or Talulah Riley


Natalie Imbruglia wore an olive green Jasmine Di Milo Spring 2009 asymmetrical dress to the Grand Opening of Atlantis in Dubai back in November, with black Jimmy Choo satin diamante platform sandals.

At this point she was still sporting her newly blonde do, which I could never embrace.

On the other hand Talulah Riley’s newly blonde do, was a change for the better. She debut her new locks on the red carpet, for the London Premiere of The Boat That Rocked, back in March, wearing the navy runway version of this dress.

I much prefer the navy colour, plus Natalie’s hair makes this an easy win for Talulah.

19.02.09 Worst Dressed

2009 Brit Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
Colour-blocking is very on trend, but Katie White from the Ting Tings green, plus neon pink and yellow LF Markey Spring 2009 ensemble just hurts my eyes.

Worst Modification Award
Estelle shortened this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 dress from the runway, and for me in the process ruined it.

The hem looks really awkward and messy.

From the look on her face, she not to happy with this look either.

Worst Hair & Make-Up
Alesha Dixon is such a pretty girl, but her blunt bangs cover up too much of her face. I also did not like her make-up, especially her bubblegum pink lipstick, which matched her heels.

Worst Black Award
Even with that unnecessary added piece of material, Natalie Imbruglia’s strapless black dress is very bland.

Worst Shoes Award
Why wear such a pretty dress, if you are just going to wear a pair of busted shoes?

Alexa Chung’s gorgeous harlequin dress is vintage, but she could have worn some Louboutin’s or Choo’s to match the vibrant nature of her sparkling dress.

Victoria Beckham Matchy Matchy Award
Amanda Holden is wearing waaayyyy to much purple for my liking.

A gold strappy sandal to compliment her embellished halter, would have broken up the matchy matchy look.

Worst Floral Award
Someone should remind Denise Lewis that this is the Brit Awards.

She is not going for afternoon tea with her granny.

Most Disappointing Award
Fearne Cotton is one to rely on during these types of events, but she really lets me down in this blazer and mini skirt combo. Not red carpet ready at all.

2009 Elle Style Awards

Anna Friel should have really taken the subtle hint from her Viktor & Rolf Fall 2008 dress which was telling her. NO.

No this will not look good on you.

My other problem is that Anna should have really considered a bra, because the twins are not holding up too well, and they’re also smuggling raisins.

The black statement one-shouldered gown over a nude underlay, was embellished with staples.

On the plus side, her hair and make-up was really nice.

Courtney Love wore my favourite dress from the Givenchy Spring 2009 Couture show I attended a few weeks ago.

I am glad that someone with a bit of character and attitude wore this gown, because only someone like her or Madonna can pull this off.

The long draped black gown has a shrug with puff ball shoulders, which are embellished with flower petals, that work their way down the sleeves.

Freida Pinto wore a black Chanel Resort 2009 dress, with a floral embellished see-through yoke.

I am not a fan of sheer yoke’s, but I would have preferred it to this plastic yoke.

She completed the look with gorgeous black strappy heels, whilst styling her hair in a chic updo.

Unfortunately, I don’t like this look. Maybe the runway belt would have helped, but I think I’m just clutching at straws.

My ray of shining light Thandie Newton didn’tt let me down. The British actress made a welcome return to the red carpet.

Last night she wore a multi-coloured Jonathan Saunders Spring 2009 floaty dress with a layered skirt.

She wore her dress with gold strappy sandals, and added a touch of crimson to her lips.

As much as I love Thandie, she has made 4 recent red carpet appearances, but her hairstyle has remained the same. Maybe she is having a bad hair week, but she needs to switch it up for next time.

Alexa Chung opted to wear a navy dress, which is very similar to the Chanel dress Emma Watson wore recently.

Sienna Miller like Marion Cotillard, was one of my red carpet favourites. But when I look at her in this ruffled green Matthew Williamson dress, and Louis Vuitton black tuxedo jacket with feathered shoulders, I just say meh! so what?

It just doesn’t move me. She just doesn’t move me anymore.

The gorgeous and impeccably dress Naomie Harris, walked the red carpet wearing a Dolce & Gabbana black strapless corset dress.

Singer Heidi Range wore RM by Roland Mouret ensemble which included an off-the-shoulder top. She accessorized with black peep-toes, a black clutch and a gigantic black bangle.

She was accompanied to the event by her boyfriend presenter Dave Berry.

Pixie Geldof’s LWD exposes the fact that her deodorant has run out.

Roisin Murphy has to be wearing the widest pants I have ever seen.

They’re from the Armand Basi One Spring 2009 collection, and her top is from the Givenchy Spring 2009 collection.

Alexandra Burke is new to the red carpet after winning the X Factor before Christmas.

I’m sure she already has a hair and make-up team, who are doing a fairly good job, but she needs to fire her stylist.

This nautical inspired black and white striped sequined D&G Spring 2009 tunic with a red sail boat, gets nil points from me.

Matthew Williamson’s show was one of my favourite shows of the entire Spring 2009 season. I covet every piece that was presented.

Radio and TV presenter Edith Bowman made really hard work of this Spring 2009 graphic print dress.

She made it look so frumpy, and totally undesirable.

On the plus side Natalie Imbruglia has returned to her natural roots.

The negative is her RM by Roland Mouret Chevalier fitted jacket and black pants.

It was an attempt at something new which I respect, but I would urge her to stick to cute dresses and flowing gowns.

This does not suit her at all.

Alice Dellal no doubt turned heads in this see-through black dress with fishnet tights.
