2009 Costume Institute Gala – The One’s I Missed


The Costume Institute Gala was bigger than the Oscars in terms of pictures, but I was determined to find Oluchi Onweagba, after Dominika was disappointed I didn’t feature her the first time around.

Dominka I promised you, if I’d found these pictures yesterday, I wouldn’t have left Oluchi out intentionally. Talk about goddess.

The gorgeous model is simply breath-taking in her black and white Oscar de la Renta Fall 2009 gown.

January Jones was also a golden girl wearing a Michael Kors metallic long sleeved shift dress.

I’m getting a early Sienna Miller hippy 60s chic vibe from this look.

Anna Friel goes way too short in a sassy lace strapless bustier dress, with strappy black sandals.

She’s a little too naked for this type of event imo.

Rosario Dawson wore a bubble-gum pink Diane von Furstenberg strapless ruched gown.

I love colour, but I’m not getting much va va voom from her, just like I didn’t get it from Eva Mendes.

Arriving on the arm of the designer herself, Elizabeth Banks looked fantastic in an Alberta Ferretti mini dress.

I love the cut with its plunging black sequined neckline, with the navy embellished skirt.

Short, sassy and sweet, that best describes Milla Jovovich as she arrived wearing a chartreuse mini Marni Fall 2009 dress, with an embroidered beaded neckline.

Taupe peep-toes from the same collection completed the look.

Hilary Swank wore a Calvin Klein burnt orange dress. What I like about this dress is the gathered details.

Hilary is such a blank canvas, you can give her almost anything and she would pull it off, so I would have preferred her in something a lot more interesting.

I still swoon when I think about her wearing that stunning Givenchy Couture lilac dress to Fashion Rocks last year.

Cheryl Tiegs looked outstanding and graceful wearing a midnight blue vintage Norman Norell sequined covered strapless gown.

Her accessories included vintage Neil Lane jewelr, and a vintage Judith Leiber minaudiere.

The legendary supermodel showed the new breed what style and class is all about.

Social Events Of The Week

“Star Trek” London Premiere

Zoe Saldana is not slowing down.

Last night at the London premiere, she gave us another head-to-toe perfect look wearing a delicate silver Azzedine Alaia halter-neck dress, with a full skirt, and a metallic silver waistband.

What I adored the most, apart from her glossy hair, and outstanding drop earrings, were her black lace-up Azzedine Alaia cut-out booties.

“The Soloist” Los Angeles Premiere

Anna Friel looks outstanding wearing an Ana Sekularc Spring 2009 asymmetrical LBD.

I love the Roger Vivier pointy heels, her sun kissed skin, and those stunning pearl drop earrings.

It’s always a delight to see Anna on the red carpet.

O. M. G.

Have you ever seen Halle Berry look so bad? I don’t think I ever have. This is a first.

The make-up is beyond shocking, I hate those streaks in her hair, and the dress is perfect for a summer vacation, but not really red carpet material.

If you think it can’t get any worse, she is wearing flip flops on the red carpet. My number one no no, along with sunglasses.

*shakes head, wonders why*

1st Annual Blossom Ball

Helena Christensen wore brightened up the red carpet, wearing a silk lilac Thakoon rose print billow dress

I love the drape top with the pencil skirt and 3/4 length sleeves.

With a hint of pink lips, Helena completes this look with a black bow waist belt, ruby ankle strap heels, and a black purse.

Orange is fast becoming the colour of this Spring/Summer season.

Padma Lakshmi wore this wonderful citrus colour in an Alberta Ferretti satin draped dress. Gold accessories add more warmth to the look.

*Sighs*

I have loved Oluchi Onweagba since her Gap ads, and she continues to astound me with her beauty.

The Nigerian model looked really beautiful wearing a Lanvin Spring 2009 strapless champagne coloured dress, with an embellished leopard print detail on the front.

My only criticism is that the dress appears to be a little tight around her hip area.

Planet Hollywood Celebrates The Opening Of PEEPSHOW, Las Vegas

After doing a post on Christian Louboutin Differa 140 sandals last week, Melanie Brown arrived at this event wearing them in turquoise, which didn’t go with her champagne fringed dress.

Heidi Montag will love these, but I don’t.

Lindsay Lohan was also at this event, wearing LBD that was just spoiling for a wardrobe malfunction. I bet she wasn’t wearing any tit tape.

Her Azzedine Alaia burgundy Ornate open toe heels are gorgeous though.
