Dannii Minogue Wears J’Aton Couture On Week 8 Of The X Factor

I don’t know about you, but I’m always excited to see how Dannii Minogue styles her hair each week on the X Factor.

This week she opted for loose curls held back with a headband.

The headband complemented the large leather waist belt she wore with her white plunging J’Aton Couture gown.

The central split and the peplum on the waist add to the sexiness of this luscious gown.

David Marshall jewels completed her stunning look.

Saturday was great, but Dannii’s Sunday look was sensational.

Her bubble gum pink J’Aton Couture one-shoulder structured dress had my chin on the floor. I was totally blown away and so was Rihanna.

This just proves that when Dannii wears J’Aton Couture, she knocks it out of the fashion ball park.

I was so in loved and in a trance looking at her in her structured pink dress, that I didn’t notice the tights until she took the stage for the second time when the results were announced.

BDOTW for sure, and Dannii best look yet on the X Factor.

Which Was Your Favourite Penelope Cruz “Los Abrazos Rotos” Promotional Tour Look?

Leona Lewis take note. It’s better to mix things up, than stick to the same look/designer.

Penelope Cruz has had an impressive 10 months promoting “Los Abrazos Rotos” wearing looks from L’Wren Scott, Herve Leroux and Calvin Klein.

It’s impossible for me to pick one favourite so my picks are the L’Wren Scott black gown, the Marchesa gown and Bottega Veneta red suit.

Can you narrow your favourite down to one?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Michelle Obama In Naeem Khan & Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé

Michelle Obama dazzled you wearing a custom-made Naeem Khan sleeveless gown sans cardigan, to the first state dinner at the White House this week.

Even those of you who have struggled to embrace her style said, “At last she has worn something that befits a First Lady”.

Michelle was my 3rd choice behind Franziska Knuppe and the outstanding Cate Blanchett.

Cate looked flawless in her Armani Privé asymmetrical dress which she wore to a dinner host by Giorgio Armani in New York this week.

The purple colour looked amazing against her milky skin, the shape defines and narrows her waist, plus the loose updo perfectly frames her face.

Long may the Queen reign the red carpet.

OTM Association Dinner

I’m so upset I couldn’t find a full-length picture of Dita von Teese, but I will guess she was wearing Louboutin’s with her Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 polka dot dress.

As usual Dita picked the perfect dress for her unique style.

I love the voluminous shoulders and the seashell accents on her bodice.

Red lippie as standard.

Anna Mouglalis was one of the few celebrities invited to the romantic Chanel Resort 2010 presentation.

Here she wears her second piece from that collection.

Her gold and black mini dress was paired with the runway cardigan of the same distinct gold detail.

A black and gold clutch, plus black tights and pumps complete the look.

Elsa Pataky always looks so amazing whether she’s wearing Armani Prive, Elie Saab or this black and grey Herve Leger bandage dress.

I love that jagged neckline.

2009 Bambi Awards

Looking at other website you’d be forgiven if you believed that only Shakira and Kate Winslet walked the red carpet at the Bambi Awards last night

Thomas Kretschmann and Shermine Sharivar were a very glamorous couple.

He wore a black suit with his shirt unbuttoned, whilst Shermine glowed beside him wearing an Armani Prive Fall 2009 deep plunging gown with an asymmetrical peplum on the waist.

The bodice stands out for more than the plunge, as it was embellished with stunning crystals.

I’m not sure about the nude clutch, but her hair and make-up suit the Old Hollywood look she was going for.

Bettina Zimmermann was another stunner on this red carpet.

Glowing with gorgeousity the actress wore a wore nude off-the-shoulder Versace Fall 2009 gown which is entirely beaded and modified from the runway.

Her look is paired with Versace heels from the same collection, and gold clutch.

I love how this gown shimmers.

Julia Stegner I ask you…why the ankle boots?

The model’s strapless midnight blue Versace Atelier Fall 2008 bustier gown with flower origami detail on the hip is outstandingly beautiful.

But when I see her pair it with ankle boots I just want to roll my eyes and say “next”.

Loving this from the ankles up.

I feel a unofficial brand ambassador post coming on.

Shakira wears Versace for her 4th red carpet appearance in a row, whilst her silver platform Versace Spring 2010 heels only get their 3rd appearance.

The singer wore a chain mail Versace Spring 2010 mini dress with an optical turquoise and charcoal grey print that made her stand out on this red carpet of luscious gowns.

Shakira later collected the ‘Best International Pop Star Award’ wearing a Gucci Fall 2009 mini dress with feathered details on the shoulders we have seen twice before on the red carpet.

She paired her dress with milky tights and black knee-high boots.

Jessica Schwarz opted for a black and white Chanel Fall 2009 ensemble consisting of a white sleeveless ruffed shirt, and a black draped floor-length skirt.

I’m sure she could’ve pulled off those arm-warmers.

Annette Weber wears the same blue ombre Valentino Fall 2009 gown we saw on Evangeline Lilly during Cannes Film Festival.

German model Franziska Knuppe was one of my favourites on this red carpet.

Her blue gown has a princess feel to it, plus I love the floral embroidered details that cascade down her bodice and the blue ribbon tied to her waist.

Kate Winslet won the ‘Best Actress Award’ at this event, but she wins most boring on this red carpet for me.

Her shapeless black dress doens’t excite me like the others do.  The only interesting part is the embellished shoulders and lace detail on the back.

Alexandra Maria Lara looked beautiful wearing a draped nude Alberta Ferretti halter gown.

What I’m missing from this look is a bit of bling, or a stand-out clutch.

Now this is what you call a mermaid hem.

Mareile Hoeppner must have Kate Beckinsale going green with envy.

There are a lot of great candidates for BDOTW, so let me know who’s your favourite.

Who Wore Jasmine di Milo Better? Thandie Newton or Daisy Lowe

Way back in September 2008, Thandie Newton was a vision in white wearing a Jasmine di Milo Fall 2008 dress split to the thigh to the “RockNRolla” UK film premiere.

The stunning British actress swept her luscious locks to one side to show off her silver earrings, which complemented her cuff and sandals.

Daisy Lowe attends wore the same dress in black last week, when she attended a cocktail reception for the launch of the “2010 Pirelli Calendar” at Old Billingsgate Market in London.

There was nothing about her look I didn’t love, which surprises me considering the tights and black pumps.

Daisy wins as I love the way the tights work with the sheer panel on her dress.
