“This Is It” LA Premiere

It was a windy and rainy night in LA yesterday, but the Queen of the wind machine didn’t have a problem.

Jennifer Lopez looks stunning as ever wearing black Herve Leger beaded bandage dress paired with the same Herve Leger slouchy boots with a chain detail from the runway and a large black clutch.

Paula Abdul didn’t get the ‘wear black memo’, as she proudly walked the red carpet wearing a cobalt blue Temperley London Spring 2009 strapless Grecian dress with a embellished bodice.

Her dress was paired with pink Louboutin’s and a silver clutch.

I make that 2 for 2 for Paula, she’s having an amazing week despite the slightly squashed twins.

Vivica A Fox opted for a one-shouldered Balmain LBD with a silver panel, paired with Balenciaga Fall 2008 which celebrities fell in love with a year ago.

Paris Hilton channeled her inner Liz Hurley and brought a bit of fun to this red carpet by arriving wearing vintage Gianni Versace safety pin dress.

It’s not like Paris to cover up her legs, but like I said before it was a cold night in LA so she paired her dress with black tights and black Louboutin ankle boots.

Jennifer Love Hewitt and Comedian Jamie Kennedy arrived wearing jeans and Michael Jackson tees.

Ashley Tisdale paired a gold studded skirt with a Michael Jackson tee and Louboutin ankle boots.

Monique Coleman looked very grown up wearing a black leather Kova & T bustier dress paired with studded sandals.

I love her hair here.

Katy Perry arrived wearing a vintage Christian Lacroix gown which felt a bit OTT for this event considering some came in graphic tees.

Who Wore Brian Lichtenberg Better? Katie Cassidy or Paris Hilton

Katie Cassidy wearing this shimmering Brian Lichtenberg Fall 2009 one-sleeved navy dress with a padded shoulder to the “Melrose Place” Premiere Party in LA this summer, was the moment she put herself on my radar and I have been in love with everything she has worn ever since.

She teamed her dress with Bebe Desiree leather caged sandals and a Swarovski clutch to completed her stunning look.

Paris Hilton is known for wearing mini dresses. It’s very much her trademark red carpet look, as she has amazing legs and loves to show them off.

This week at the “2009 Fox Reality Channel Really Awards” she wore the same Brian Lichtenberg dress with Versace heels, but sadly without the same wow factor.

Katie wins for me.

Who Wore Roberto Cavalli Better? Milla Jovovich or Paris Hilton

Milla Jovovich shimmered in a Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 mini flapper dress, when she walked the red carpet at ”The Cavalli Card Party” during Fall 2009 Milan Fashion Week back in March.

The actress paired her look with a leather jacket and black pumps.

Paris Hilton arrived at the MTV screening of her “Paris, Not France” documentary in California late July.

Paris sparkled from head-to-toe pairing her dress with her favourite Le Silla shoes, plus some stunning jewels including a diamond bracelet and diamond earrings.

I’m so tired of people toughening up pretty dresses, so Paris wins for me.

08.09.09 Premiere

Venice Film Festival Catch Up

“South Of The Border” Premiere

Finally someone wears a Phoebe Philo’s Celine Resort 2010 look on the red carpet.

Granted the collection doesn’t have gowns or cute cocktail dresses, but I always pictured someone like Chloe Sevigny in the pieces.

Tilda Swinton walked the red carpet with Director Luca Guadagnino at this daytime premiere wearing a camel jacket, white top, black slightly cropped pants and strappy heels as per the runway.

I LOVE the look.

Forget Chloe, only Tilda can pull this off. On anyone else the jacket may have looked too boxy.

“White Material” Premiere

Speaking of class acts, Isabelle Huppert was head-to-clutch-to-toe in YSL.

My Best Dressed Cannes 2009 judge proves that her Cannes run was not a fluke, as she looks elegant wearing a YSL satin tank dress paired with biscotto satin slingback sandals and an emerald satin and sequined Muse clutch.

“Capitalism: A Love Story” Premiere

Tilda Swinton next look was a midnight blue Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 gathered kimono sleeve dress.

Tilda appears to be a fan of Alber Elbaz designs as she has worn Lanvin on the red carpet many times before, especially on big occasions.

The actress pairs her dress with a Lanvin amber resin necklace and Lanvin suede pumps with metal mirrored heels.

I was just about to say that Italian TV presenter Simona Ventura had done a 180 from her first appearance at this festival when she wore an unfortunateDSquared gown, when I saw the twins.

I would’ve given her 10 out of 10 had she supported the twins.

At this point she gets a 7.

“The Informant!” Premiere

Luciana Damon is usually in the shadow of her famous husband Matt, but on this occasion it’s all about her in her stunning dusky rose gown.

I love unexpected way her gown sparkles with the dark stones sprinkled all over her gown.

Bad Lieutenant: Part Of Call New Orleans

I know many of you just can’t bring yourselves to say anything nice about Paris Hilton, but you have to give credit were credit is due.

I love this look.

She’s seems to love to channel old Hollywood for her red carpet looks lately.

Her hair is elegantly swept to the side in her plunging sequined Jenny Packham gown.

“Accident” Premiere

The Christian Dior Spring 2008 white gown Han Yuqin wore is slightly modified from the runway version, as it has less embellishments and plunge isn’t as deep but it’s still absolutely outstanding gown.

Michelle Ye paired her punky ‘do with a Dolce & Gabbana dress strapless black sequin gown with a rosette detail on the hip.

Kylie Minogue wore to the same dress to the Brit Awards.

“Between Two Worlds” Premiere

Huang Lu’s Moshino Fall 2009 gown has a silver-tone safety pin-embellished ruched centre detail.

The gown is made even more dramatic with a chiffon overlay.

I adore this gown.

31.08.09 WTF???

“Oh No She Didn’t” – Paris Hilton Wears That Other Bebe Dress

This weekend Paris Hilton was at the “Maxim Presents ’09 Hometown Hotties Finalists” at Wasted Space in Las Vegas.

I was putting Paris’ picture next to the Balmain Fall 2009 picture when I burst out laughing in realization that she was actually wearing the Bebe sequin striped party dress, NOT the Balmain dress as I had assumed.

I made the assumption because surely Paris can afford to purchase the Balmain dress, unlike musician Brittani Senser, who I had never even heard of until she wore that Bebe gown.

I suppose just because you have the money for a $10,000 dress, doesn’t mean you can’t rock a $179 dress.

Paris doesn’t look bad in the dress, and I would bet she doesn’t even know it’s a Balmain knock-off.

Her silky ruffled hem closely resembles the Balmain Fall 2009 strapless dress as it has the same black ruffled asymmetrical skirt, plus the black stripes on the silver sequin dress are flowing in the same direction.

The only difference is the quality, price and the fact that the Balmain dress is strapless.
