Social Events Of The Weekend

20th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, New York

Vanessa Williams continues to astound me on the red carpet.

Some would say a woman of her age shouldn’t wear this Matthew Williamson silk asymmetric drape dress, but I say boo to that, because she is wearing it a lot better than girls half her age could.

Fierce, and she knows it. Love it, love her.

OMG, I didn’t know Ana Ortiz was expecting.

My isn’t she glowing in this white off-the-shoulder dress?

Tyra Banks’ Georges Chakra couture tuxedo shows off a much slender frame.

Portia de Rossi and Ellen Degeneres pose with their awards in the press room.

Ellen in a navy blue chic suit with comfortable sneakers, and Portia wore a strapless black Bottega Veneta Pre-Fall 2009 dress with Stella McCartney mesh basket sandals.

23rd Genesis Awards, LA

Ginnifer Goodwin looks so dreamy in her nude sequined April, May dress with a pretty, ruched organza detail cascading down the front.

Accessories were kept to a minimum, with a stunning pair of Daniel Swarovski statement earrings, a gold shimmering clutch and pointy heels.

She looks so elegant, and so feminine, but like you, I wish she crack a smile once in a while.

Best look of this event.

Emily Deschanel sprung into spring wearing a fresh, citrus orange satin shift dress.

Stunning gold accessories, and black pumps complete her look.

Tiffany Fallon wore a black top under her plunging Alexander McQueen cap sleeve jumpsuit.

Maggie Q red carpet appearance are now few and far between, but she still knows how to make an impact. The actress wore a dangerously deep plunging orange jersey BCBG dress, which nears her belly button.

2009 Empire Awards, London

Gemma Arterton had one good week, then reverted back to what we have come to expect from her – a complete and utter mess.

I will only assume she didn’t look in the mirror once she put on this off-the-shoulder Halston Spring 2009 dress, because it’s unflattering, and totally washes her out.

OK, ankle boots are the new red carpet trend, but they’re so wrong with this dress.

Olga Kurylenko who won Best Newcomer at this awards do, wore a very uninspiring all black ensemble.

“Monsters vs. Aliens” South Korea Premiere

Han Ye-Seul stepped in for Reese Witherspoon, wearing a nude Fendi Spring 2009 dress. It’s so pretty, and looks so delicate against her pale skin.

The floral appliqué’s add some texture to the dress, which she wears with nude strappy sandals.

L’Etoile nightclub, Paris

Dita von Teese enjoys a night out wearing a emerald green satin Malandrino Fall 2008 dress, with matching heels.

The plunge-neck dress has a tulip skirt, and a black belt with a green marble buckle. Her look is complete with trademark red lips and nails, plus a Christian Louboutin shoe clash clutch.

Chanel Fall 2009 Front Row

I wasn’t crazy about Freida Pinto’s Elle Style Awards Chanel dress, but this white Chanel dress I LOVE.

The beauty is in it’s chicness, the bold brooches, and the origami sleeves. Outstanding.

Best Dress Of The Week candidate for sure.

Bond Girl, Olga Kurylenko wore Chanel Spring 2009 ensemble, which included a black bowed detailed sleeveless blush pink blouse.

The look has no wow factor, but that doesn’t stop her from looking absolutely beautiful.

Kate Moss made a rare fashion week front row appearance for Chanel, sitting alongside her boyfriend Jamie Hince, and photographer Mario Testino.

The supermodel kept her look simple wearing a black tuxedo suit, which had a white trim on the pants, with black platform heels.

I have never quite understood how the Chanel-Lily Allen connection came about. On paper, it doesn’t seem like a great fit. But she does pick great pieces, that suit her personality, like this Chanel Resort 2009 pink and navy dress.

Her look is complete with Louboutin’s and white Chanel purse.

Claudia Schiffer look is very Librarian for someone who is wearing head to toe Chanel.

After offending a very small number of in Herve Leger, Beth Ditto opted for a more sombre look when she arrived at the Chanel shoe this afternoon.

Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better? Olga Kurylenko or Melissa George


When Melissa George stepped on the Oscars red carpet wearing a white Dolce & Gabbana strapless mermaid gown, the first thing that came to my mind was Olga Kurylenko.

That’s because last November we were wowed by Olga in this gown. So much so, that she was our joint Best Dressed that week.

Olga wore her dress to the Italian Quantum Of Solace premiere, with a stunning necklace and a pewter clutch. Melissa opted for a matching white clutch, and a vintage bracelet.

Olga wears her gown with so much more attitude, so she wins this for me.

Chanel Spring 2009 Haute Couture



The Chanel Spring 2009 Haute Couture collection was a vision in pure white, with the occasional dash of black breaking up the ethereal theme.

The traditional Chanel suit was reworked in new fabrics, with sequins, PVC, appliqué and delicate embroidery taking over from the expected bouclé.

Karl Lagerfeld presented a-lines and square shouldered shapes. Skinny pants, shrinking jackets, cropped sleeves, and fantasy gowns.


The paper rosette headpieces were simply divine, and provided the perfect finishing touch.

The venue was covered in tumbling organza, appliqué flowers and gigantic paper blooms to set the ethereal tone at the Chanel show.

We are not used to seeing a lot of white on the red carpet, so I would be interested in seeing who would wear these pieces.


Olga Kurylenko was back to her breath-taking best wearing a tailored white skirt, and a sleeveless black sweater, with stunning statement necklace. All Chanel of course.


Sporting fresh cut bangs, Keira Knightley – the face of Coco Mademoiselle – was also head to toe in Chanel.

She looks gorgeous wearing a fabulous tweed skirt, a black sweater and studded heels.

Tres Chic.
