14th Annual GQ Men Of The Year Awards

January Jones would have stood out at this event wearing a two-tone Gucci Resort 2010 bandeau dress, paired with statement necklace, black heels and her blonde locks piled high.

Her asymmetrical heels are an interesting choice, but I would have loved something less heavy to go with her summery dress.

Zoe Saldana continues to impress wearing a two tone lingerie-inspired Antonio Berardi Spring 2010 bustier dress which screams ‘sexy’.

I’m loving the gold heels Jamie King wore with her Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 dress.

The dress gathers from neckline down the front of her dress and has an interesting jagged hemline.

It’s been a while since we saw Emma Stone on the red carpet.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a back tulle Christian Cota Fall 2009 draped dress with Guiseppe Zanotti ankle boots.

I wish I could have found a better picture of her stand up straight.

I am in lust with Olivia Wilde’s white Marchesa Bridal dress.

The colour, the structure, the folds and the embroidered detail on the bodice excite my senses.

Unfortunately I’m don’t feel the same way about her hairstyle.  An updo would’ve worked wonders.

Her look is paired with Brian Atwood Marlo heels.

There was a time when Kim Kardashian would’ve been guaranteed to walk this event wearing a bandage dress, but these days she covers up but still manages to look sexy.

This plum colour is gorgeous on her.

Jessica Stroup always keeps her look young and fresh.

She wore a pair of gold metallic lace boy shorts and black tailored jacket from the ‘Amber Valletta for Monrow’ capsule collection.

Jimmy Choo Detroit suede ankle boots complete her look.

It looks like shorts were the hot trend of the night as Amanda Seyfried also donned a black pair, teaming them with a crocheted fringed top.

A Judith Leiber clutch and Brian Atwood Maniac black heels complete this cute look.

Rose McGowan goes without her signature red pout on this occasion for a fresher neutral look.

Her blue Miu Miu bustier dress has also been worn by Kristen Dunst.

Elizabeth Banks and Gabrielle Union both wore black BCBG Max Azria dresses.

Elizabeth paired her mini dress with pattern tights, whilst Gabrielle’s asymmetrical hemmed dress was paired with peep-toes and a two-tone clutch.

Jimmy Choo For H&M Collection Party

11 days and counting until the H&M for Jimmy Choo collection hits stores, but the stars were out to celebrate the collection in LA last night.

Hayden Panettiere probably had my favourite head-to-toe look pairing a Jimmy Choo for H&M sequined zipped black cardigan, with leather pants and a zebra printed bag with studded details from the same collection.

Olivia Wilde wore a black long sleeved Jimmy Choo for H&M dress which is covered in rhinestones.

She picked a perfect pair of heels from the same collection which were also embellished, but it’s her croc Jimmy Choo for H&M clutch I’m lusting over.

I almost cried when I saw Garcelle Beauvais on this red carpet, because I have been cruising H&M Regents Street, Oxford Circus and Brent Cross looking for this Holiday 2009 black long sleeved dress for a while to no avail.

It looks stunning on Garcelle as she paired her dress with a pair of strappy high heels.

I wonder how Tamara Mellon felt when she saw Paris Hilton arrive wearing Louboutin’s.

Paris did look hot pairing the black Jimmy Choo for H&M jumpsuit with a hot pink clutch from the came collection.

The Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch is still a celebrity favourite on the red carpet.

I can’t believe the jumpsuit is only £39.99.  It’s just be added to my wish list.

Sister Nicky Hilton opted for a batwing sleeved Jimmy Choo for H&M beaded dress which shimmered on the red carpet.

Pairing her dress with silver strappy sandals, Nicky also carried the same starred croc clutch as Olivia.

The ankle boot trend was alive on this red carpet as Rashida Jones paired her Jimmy Choo for H&M grey open-toe and studded heels, with a black dress and a biker jacket.

She also fell in love with Hayden’s zebra print clutch.

Maggie Grace was just that….graceful on this red carpet.

Her ivory dress was accented with black accessories including black patent Jimmy Choo for H&M strappy heels which are number one on my wish list.

M.I.A. can usually be too crazy for my tastes, but on this occasion I love what she is wearing.

She paired Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Spring 2010 blue chiffon blouse embellished in sequins with a shark print motif, with black leggings.

Thigh high Jimmy Choo for H&M boots complete the look.

Precious Screening At 2009 AFI FEST

What a difference a decent dress can makes to Mariah Carey, as she has a tendency to want to wear very tight gowns that can make her look very trashy.

On this occasion she wore a Zac Posen Resort 2008 black mermaid gown and I think this is the best we have ever seen her, despite the fact that the gown has already been worn on the red carpet earlier this year.

Hair and make-up are fabulous, and she doesn’t go overboard with the bling.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Paula Patton has great legs, so she shortened her Bottega Veneta corseted dress to show them off and this modification works really well for her.

I’m not as excited about her necklace, but I do love her Jimmy Choo ‘Revere’ strappy sandals.

I love Mary J Blige, but I’m not so crazy about her Emillio Pucci Resort 2010 gown as it’s doing nothing for her.

Olivia Wilde opted for a white RM by Roland Mouret Scirocco crepe pencil dress with an asymmetric neckline and cap sleeves.

Nude make-up and accessories complete this look.

Garcelle Beauvais looks incredible wearing a red hot asymmetrical dress with Christian Louboutin glittery peep-toes.

Mo’Nique and her husband Sidney Hicks walked the red carpet together as she glowed wearing a gold shimmering strapless dress.

Social Events Of The Weekend

Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival, Florida

Michelle Monaghan was honoured with the “Rising Star on the Horizon Award” at this Festival whilst glowing in a RM by Roland Mouret Traverse wool shift dress.

She paired with black strappy sandals and a gold clutch.

This is such a sophisticated look for the beautiful actress.

Black Eyed Peas Official After Party, LA

Fergie opted for a one-sleeved Gucci Fall 2009 black and silver tunic dress.

She wore her dress with the popular Gucci Division over-the-knee boots which celebrities have fallen in love with.

2009 Environmental Media Awards, LA

Olivia Wilde looks outstanding wearing a Stella McCartney stretch lace panel dress.

I love the way she wore her hair back so we can see all the detail on her stunning dress.

Normally I’m wowed by Katie Cassidy on the red carpet, but not so much on this occasion.

She still looks great in her white and black printed one-sleeved Loeffler Randall dress, but the Guiseppe Zanotti booties don’t work for me.

She completed her look with a Christian Louboutin Loubistuds clutch.

Ginnifer Goodwin wore a very pretty white strapless 1 OAK dress made from recycled materials, which she paired with contrasting accessories including a black ribbon belt, a black clutch and grey Stella McCartney heels for a prim and polished look.

Jet Nightclub At The Mirage, Las Vegas

Whitney Port looked gorgeous in a coral patterned Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 dress with a high neck and ultra short hem. I love the dress, but when is she going to wear something from her own Spring 2010 collection?

The host of this party paired her dress with sparkling Giuseppe Zanotti jeweled sandals.

Variety’s 1st Annual Power of Women Luncheon

Anne Hathaway was the brightest star on this red carpet wearing a Lela Rose Spring 2010 sunshine yellow strapless dress with a folded detail on one side.

It’s a bold colour I wouldn’t have thought she would pick, but it works well for her.

Her look is paired with Roger Vivier pumps.

Christina Applegate looked very sophisticated in her green Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2009 belted dress, paired with nude strappy sandals and a nude clutch.

After her stunning Atelier Versace gown at the Emmy’s January Jones opted for ladylike chic at this event.

She wore an elegant black BCBG Max Azria dress to this event, with her glossy blonde hair swept to one side with a diamante headband to complete the look.

Olivia Wilde is wearing a black and white floral Kate Moss for Topshop dress and not a stitch of make-up.

Life’s just not fair.

AnnaLynne McCord should’ve saved this cute gold dress for the Teen Vogue Party.

Christina Aguilera made a rare red carpet appearance, but little appears to have changed.

Her LBD, Louboutin’s, and ruby red pout are pretty standard.

I remember a time when she had a new look every week.

2009 Emmy Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
January Jones is never boring on the red carpet.

She always wows me and last night was no exception.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore a futuristic Versace mint green gown, with flowing skirt and a structured corset.

She gave me one of very few wow moments on the red carpet.

Best Dressed Runner Up/Best Marchesa Award
Olivia Wilde was one of the first actresses to hit the red carpet last night and was my Best Dressed for the whole of E! Live from the Red Carpet show until I saw January.

Her mint green chiffon embroidered Marchesa Spring 2010 gown with an illusion panel on the bodice is simply exquisite.

She wears the gown so well, so elegantly as we would expected from the beautiful actress.

Best Bling/Golden Girl Award
I do like a bit of bling on the red carpet and it was kindly provided by Kristin Chenoweth who sparkled wearing a crystal encrusted Zuhair Murad’s Haute Couture Spring 2009 mini dress, with gunmetal grey heels and a matching clutch.

I’m so glad she wore the dress without the runway belt.

Best Versace/Lady In Red Award
WOW.

Blake Lively is truly back.

After a disappointing 2008, she has continued to wow me in 2009.

Some of you like that Atlanta Housewife on E! will think this is too sexy. I say it’s sexy enough, and she has the body for it so why not wear a stunning red Versace Fall 2009 gown like this.

Best Maternity Award
I’m so glad Heidi Klum didn’t wear a tent like at the Costume Institute Gala.

Being pregnant is not a crime so why should she cover up?

I think she looks stunning in her Marchesa custom-made gown, which bares a slight resemblance to the Resort 2010 gown presented as they both have beaded a beaded bodice.

Her lace train is what I really love about this dress.

Gowns, Maternity, Bridal and accessories. Is there nothing that Georgina Chapman can’t do?

It Took Me A While, But I Love It Award
At first I was really unsure about Kate Walsh’s J. Mendel Spring 2010 crystal blue pleated strapless gown, as I thought it was unflattering.

But the more I looked at it, the more I appreciated the soft draping, and how beautiful the colour looked on her.

The actress paired her dress with and Aldo clutch.

Most Improved Award
Dana Delany is usually a hot mess on the red carpet, but she opted for a stunning purple Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture strapless gown.

Excluding the embroidered bodice it’s quite a simple gown.

Slinkiest Silhouette Award
I love a mermaid gown that gives the wearer a Jessica Rabbit style silhouette.

Jennifer Carpenter’s Zuhair Murad Fall 2009 one shoulder nude tulle gown does that.

The gown has intricate black beading thought-out with a dramatic rosette detail on the bodice.

Better Than The Runway Award
I was really intrigued by Mila Kunis Monique Lhuillier Fall 2009 maroon tulle gown because of the way she had made it work for her on the red carpet.

I really dislike the runway styling, so I’m glad Mila has made me see this dress in a more positive light.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewels.

Interesting Change Of Direction Award
For the first time in a while I actually love Chloe Sevigny’s look.

I’m not one who get carried away with her “style icon” tag, I just judge her look by look and this Isaac Mizrahi Resort 2010 one-shoulder polka dot gown I love.

I also love the fact that it’s not an obvious choice.

50 And Fabulous Award
I have a soft spot for Marcia Gay Harden, she reminds me a lot o Helen Mirren in that she’s not afraid to show off her cleavage, like she does in this sequined Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2009 gown.

I love how the sash gives her a tiny waist, to give her an perfect hourglass figure.

Best Couture Award
This bold blue Basil Soda Fall 2008 gown may have a lot going on for you, but it all works for me.

I got texture, embellishments and it beautiful. All the ingredients need for a stunning couture gown.

Thank God She Pulled Her Hair Back Award
I was so happy that Drew Barrymore wore her hair tied back, because that black stripe she had in her hair last week would’ve been disastrous with this beautiful Monique Lhuillier blush gown.

Best Use Of Tulle Award
Rose Byrne was literally picking her gown up as she walked along the red carpet, as there was so much of it.

I loved this Valentino gown.

It was the perfect colour for her, despite it’s size she didn’t get lost in it, and the embellishment were beautiful.

Curvalicious Award
How can you not love Christina Hendricks? She is just too fabulous for words in her L’Wren Scott navy and black lace gown.

I would’ve adored her in a colourful gown, but she looks this hot it doesn’t matter.

Matchy Matchy Award
Ginnifer Goodwin wore a fuschia pink YSL strapless dress.

The dress matched her Brian Atwood heels and her clutch.

The stunning necklace is what pulls this whole look together and I absolutely adore it.

Best Necklace Award
Mariska Hargitay opted for a Carolina Herrera silver shimmering gown, which fitted her like a glove.

Best Embellished Gown Award
Perrey Reeves wore an ivory Naeem Khan chiffon empire waist short sleeve V-front gown with crystal beading.
