Social Events Of The Weekend

BritWeek’s Designer Of The Year Fashion Show

Dita von Teese’s Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 ensemble, doesn’t have the same charm as Becki Newton’s last week.

Something is not quiet working for me, and I can’t decide whether it’s the shorts, or the hair.

Her look was teamed with stunning black/gold jewels, a metallic rosette, and Dolce & Gabbana satin wedge sandals.

So close. I was so close to loving this Todd Lynn Spring 2009 look on Rumer Willis, but was not sure about the shorts. Then it turns out that she’s not wearing shorts, but a very smartly tailored all in one.

I do love the dove grey tuxedo jacket with the wide lapels top half, and the fact that she wore it without a top underneath, but nil points for the bottom half.

Her hair is looking much better now though.

Lynn Collins also wore Todd Lynn. Her look was from his Fall 2008 collection, which included a white tuxedo jacket with 2 black buttons, and black pants from the same collection.

She completed her look with a pair of Christian Louboutin for Todd Lynn heels, with a hair weft weaved into the back.

I’m really enjoying seeing Lynn on the red carpet. She hasn’t played the safe card yet.

“Cutlass” Screening, New York

Kate Hudson is the producer/director of the short film Cutlass.

Glamour magazine threw a celebratory party this weekend for the film, in which Kate arrived looking quite spectacular wearing a Stella McCartney black velvet devoree dress, with black peep-toes, whilst flashing a peace-sign and a megawatt smile.

17th Annual Kennedy Center Spring Gala

LeAnn Rimes opted for this eggplant Stella McCartney strapless dress from the designers Spring 2009 collection.

Lavender suede Louboutin’s complete this cute look, but that berry shade of lipstick doesn’t do her any favours.

Barnstable Brown Party Celebrating The 135th Kentucky Derby

Brooke Shields’ white strapless Angel Sanchez Spring 2009 gown, with black ribbon details on the front is gorgeous, but I can’t help wishing she had done something more with her hair.

Paris Hilton walked the red carpet wearing a figure-hugging Tadashi black lace dress, with an eye-catching Charlotte Russe feathered cocktail headband, and Trib Two’s.

Her other accessory was her boyf, Doug Reinhardt. They’re inseparable at the moment.

The Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup – “The Winner’s Circle” Gala Dinner, LA

Eva Longoria continued to show her support for this event, by attending the gala dinner wearing a mocha Halston Spring 2009 strapless jumpsuit.

I love what she is wearing, plus the hair and the make-up, but I have a huge bug-bear about clothes dragging on the floor like this.

An Evening With Women: Celebrating Art, Music, & Equality

Scary doesn’t even begin to cover this.

Before any jumps on my bones, I’m not begin ageist. For years Sharon Stone has perpetually been worst dressed woman in the world, and seeing her in a Herve Leger dress, with Mall Mum hair just confirms my point.

Paris Hilton channeled her inner Marilyn Monroe, with her flicked blonde ‘do.

The TV star wore a one-shouldered red ruched cocktail dress from Georges Chakra Couture, with matching pumps and red lips. She left her favourite Louboutin clutch at home, and opted for a gold clutch.

I love embellished the detail that runs from her shoulder, to her hem.

Brittany Snow wore silver accessories, including Jimmy Choo heels, with her raspberry Lela Rose one shoulder ruffle dress.

The dress, and the hairstyle make her appear very youthful. Great look for the cute actress.

Dania Ramirez wore a fuschia pink Matthew Williamson Spring 2009 blazer, over her lace LBD.

White rosettes decorated the bodice of Eliza Dushku’s satin LBD.

US Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Issue Event

Woot woot. Taraji P. Henson makes a long awaited return to the red carpet, and she proves by wearing this vintage Emanuel Ungaro fringed flapper style dress, with Azzedine Alaia boots, that her awards season run was not fluke.

After wearing a gorgeous 3.1 Phillip Lim dress the other night, this white Camilla and Marc dress for some reason reminds me of loo roll.

Not a flattering look, and so disappointing as I was considering putting her on a pedestal.

LOVE Kelly Osbourne in this black and white striped dress. The volume on the skirt of her bandage dress is blowing me away.

Her look is complete with Gina heels, and a Swarovski clutch.

Garcelle Beauvais was wearing a gorgeous strapless jersey LWD from the BCBG Max Azria asymmetric dress collection, but I’m captivated by that stunning statement necklace.

Jordana Brewster is wearing a really nice draped Christian Dior dress, but there’s TOO much black going on for a party titled ‘Hot Hollywood Style‘.

The same kinda applies to Fergie, although her look has a very interesting and distinctive edge to it, with the leather vest, over a fringed DSquared dress.

My main criticism is the hair.

Fergie, please decide what colour you wish your hair to be. At present I see black, I see brown, and a touch of honey colour highlights. I admired the changed at first, but now it’s looking like a home colour kit gone wrong.

Estelle, we’re used to seeing you in edgy design no one else would dare wear, but you’re just not the maxi dress wearing kind.

Her dress Layla, is wore with a Juliette Jake clutch.

Like Halle Berry’s striped maxi earlier this week, Shanna Moakler’s white

Foley+Corinna maxi dress, with multi-coloured stripes screams summer vacation.

I do though admire her creativity, in trying to match her eye make-up, to the colours on her dress. It looks like she gave up after trying 3 shades, thankfully.

Eliza Dushku opted for black and white stripes in this Moschino dress.

The party’s hot, she so Hollywood, so it was only natural Paris Hilton arrived at this event.

She snugged up to her beau wearing a Junko Shimada two-tone mini dress, with a Chanel purse, and Trib Two’s. Her jewels are outstanding.

Martina McBride wears a black strapless Miu Miu LBD, with her wonderfully voluminous dark locks and a Yigal Azrouel statement necklace.

Meagan Good wore a barely there LBD, under a black leather jacket. Her yellow strappy sandals was the only dash of colour she added to her look.

With regards to what Annie Wersching is wearing, some might say this is more negligee than red carpet ready, I would just be thankful it’s not black.

1st Historic Health Summit Gala

Jessica Alba looked heavenly in her white satin shift dress, with a delicate ruffled detail cascading down the front. She is in cinched at the waist with a black belt, in this event appropriate dress.

The lighter hair really works for her.

As gorgeous as Kristin Davis’ Oscar de la Renta Spring 2009 lace gown dress is. I don’t think it’s particularly flattering for her.

She has a great figure, but this gown isn’t doing it justice. Maybe a belt would have helped.

She kept her accessories to an absolute minimum, only carrying a black clutch.

Paris Hilton went for pure and demure wearing a white strapless pencil Luca Luca dress. It didn’t have the same wow factor as Jessica Alba’s LWD, but she does look elegant and sophisticated.

She paired her look with metallic gold heels, and a collection of retro-inspired statement jewelery.

I love that necklace.

Maggie Grace wore a Moschino Cheap and Chic Pre-Fall 2009 black and white silk dot brocade dress with a cowl neck.

She opted out of wearing black pumps, choosing burgundy point pumps instead.

The look is perfectly completed with a gorgeous beaded hair accessory.

Sarah Brown, the wife of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, wearing a chocolate brown belted dress, stood alongside model Naomi Campbell who wore head-to-toe black.

I don’t know about you, but I’m preferring what Sarah is wearing over Naomi.

Paris Hilton Loves Her Christian Louboutin Maykimay Clutch

If you watched the Paris Hilton’s search for a best friend reality TV show, you would have seen her massive walk-in closet.

It was full of many bags, shoes, clothes and accessories. But no matter how much Paris has, she always relies on her favourite clutch for most of her red carpet appearances.

That clutch is her Christian Louboutin Maykimay clutch.


Since she first stepped onto the red carpet with the Louboutin clutch for the Golden Globe Awards InStyle/Warner Bros After Party, wearing an electric blue Zuhair Murad Couture gown, she has rarely left home without it. She even carried it to the Bravo A List Awards over the weekend.

The crystal covered clutch has an embellished pump with signature red sole as pull tab, and a red lining.

You can purchase this clutch from Luis via Roma for €1,743.

Bravo’s 2nd Annual A-List Awards

RUINED, Ruined, ruined. I can never look at this Chloe Spring 2009 dress with any type of love or affection since it has been worn by Aubrey O’Day.

I refused to love anything she has worn, even if she did wear it in a pretty peachy colour.

She should have strapped her breast down, or worn the dress with the runway belt, then maybe the dress wouldn’t have been bunch up around her breasts, making the dress look incredibly awkward.

*crys – Whhhyyyeeee*

Jenny McCartney does her best to erase the previous image from my mind, by looking gorgeous in a tropical print Gucci Spring 2009 mini dress, worn with a taupe leather wrap around tie-belt.

Her hair is not rocking my world, but her Gucci Spring 2009 platform heels are.

With her blunt bob, Paris Hilton wears a fuchsia pink dress, which is structured to give her more hips.

The star wears her Santino Rice dress with her favourite silver Gina pumps, and her very favourite Christian Louboutin Maykimay clutch.

Rachel Zoe sure does love her flowing gowns. This grey chiffon Notte by Marchesa gown, has wonderful gold embellished neckline.

I must say she’s really looking good these days.

I nearly fell off my chair when I saw Shanna Moakler wearing this strapless Oscar de la Renta black silk faille Shibori dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

Don’t get me wrong she looks fantastic in the black and white dress, but it’s not a brand I would’ve thought she would wear.

I like it when celebs surprise me on the red carpet.

Bethenny Frankel wore a the dove grey gown version of the RM by Roland Mouret Moon dress, we were drooling over 2 years ago, when it was first worn by Victoria Beckham.

She does look amazing in this gown. The beauty of Roland Mouret’s work is that it’s timeless.

Chelsea Handler is not one I would normally watch on the red carpet, but I love her Dolce & Gabbana bustier tulip dress, and matching gold Mary Norton clutch.

What lets her down – I’m sure you’ll agree – is her hair.

From the D List, to this so called A List event, Kathy Griffin for once looks outstanding in her black sequined dress. I’m sure she opened her mouth and ruined everything, but in pictures she looks great.

Kelly Rowland’s electric blue Issa plunge front dress is right on trend, but that curly ‘do is bringing back painful jheri curl memories.

After her maroon Prada gown from a few weeks ago, Milla Jovovich appears to have fallen in love with the colour, as she wore a maroon dress again for this event.

Gold accessories were the perfect touch, to add more warmth to this look.

Kim Kardashian wears a very sexy black velvet Thierry Mugler dress with black accessories, including a black Mary Norton clutch.

The dress really does stand out, and gives her a great silhouette, but my problem is that this dress feels to serious for such a light-hearted event. She should have saved this for a more worthy event.

Wearing waaaayyy too much foundation, Khloe Kardashian wears a multi-coloured belt with her LBD. The only thing I like here are her nude accessories, as you know they are very on trend.

Celebs sure do love Dolce & Gabbana’s white bustier dresses. This is the second one of the weekend. First the gown version was worn by Marisa Miller at the CMAs, now Padma Lakshmi.

Perez Hilton’s 31st Birthday Party

After the Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards, Ashley Tisdale skipped over town to attend Perez Hilton’s birthday party.

Still wearing the same open toe booties from the awards do, Ashley changed out of her cute Akiko Ogawa dress, to something more edgy.

From her whole look, I really loved her A.L.C. Motorcycle jacket. It went with Ashley’s wannabee rock chick vibe, which included her white Siwy Hannah slim jeans, and her ripped tee. Kate Moss would applaud her efforts.

I have never been a fan of white jeans, but these I love.

Amanda Bynes’ fuschia pink dress really showed off her tan.

I can’t talk about that hair as it drives mental, but I will point out, that whilst applying her tan, she forgot to do her hands. Ooops.

I love Paris Hilton’s black studded Giusppe Zanotti booties, but I’m not crazy about this hard edge look.

I prefer her wearing cutesy dresses, but I guess this look is right for this occasion, even though the skirt sits a little high for my liking.

Off-topic – Am I the only one very suspicious about this Doug Reinhardt guy?

I don’t think this jumpsuit is doing Kim Kardashian any favours. She appears wider than what she really is. Plus the shape and size of the belt just doesn’t work.

Before today, I was totally in love with that Prada python clutch. The lust factor has faded somewhat, now I have seen Heidi Montag carrying.

The LBD is as you would expect – revealing. And her cream platform heels are from the Gucci Spring 2009 collection.

I don’t quite understand why Aubrey O’Day is pouting so much, she already has enough collagen in her lips to fill a kids size swimming pool.

As you would expect the dress is hideous, and her choice of Christian Louboutin short Tina fringe pumps complete this monstrosity.

Emmy Rossum really stands out from this crowd. I feel like she is doing community service.

She sticks to her usual style of wearing a cute unoffensive dress, which shimmers so brightly.

Social Events Of The Week

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively finally gets it right.

She was looking ravishing in a mini pink Diane von Furstenberg dress, and gold Jimmy Choo’s for her appearance on Letterman this week.

I don’t even like one-sleeved anything, so for her to make me love this look, is even more impressive

Hot colour, hot look.

“Skellig” London VIP Screening

Kelly Macdonald wore a lace necklined Collette Dinnigan Spring 2009 LBD.

I love the silver beaded shoulders, which gives the dress a slight edgy Balmain-eqse feel to it.

EcoMom’s Sowing Hope In Congo Party, LA

Nicole Richie wears another look which is very typical of her earth-mother/boho style.

This white kimono sleeved maxi, is covered in an interesting pattern.

Kerry Washington teams a black pencil skirt, with a green Missoni Fall 2008 v-neck sweater.

It looks like she is wearing the same Choo’s as Blake Lively above.

The Ivy, LA

Paris Hilton looks pretty in pink – for a refreshing change – as she leaves the Ivy after dinner with her new boyfriend Doug Reinhardt and her parents.

Paris’ floral tulip-skirted dress is gorgeous. I really love it.

She teamed her dress with silver pumps for this sweet look.
