Ann Taylor Summer 2011 Collection Luncheon

Sophia Bush, Perrey Reeves and Keisha Whitaker joined Katie Holmes to celebrate Ann Taylor’s Summer 2011 collection at the Château Marmont in LA yesterday.

Sophia Bush wore an Ann Taylor sunburst sheath dress which she paired with a beige blazer. You can see her without the blazer in a picture below.

An Ann Taylor bronze lace cuff, a cross body bag and Christian Louboutin platform sandals completed her look.

Perrey Reeves opted for a bright red halter dress which she teamed with Ann Taylor accessories including a fringed necklace and a pink exotic foldover clutch.

I love the rose gold sandals.

Keisha Whitaker opted for a very casual look with some on trend coloured jeans.

Black Ann Taylor gladiator heels completed her look.

17.06.10 Premiere

“Entourage” Season 7 Premiere

Her are the rest of the ladies who walked the red carpet at the “Entourage” Season 7 Premiere in LA last night.

Maria Menounos looked gorgeous wearing an Alice + Olivia scoop-neck dress which is covered with ombré sequins and beading.

I love her dress, but I adore her Camilla Skovgaard collar sandals.

Dania Ramirez wore a nude Dolce & Gabbana dress which Penelope Cruz first wore during the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

The actress opted to jazz up her nude dress by wearing Versace metal platform sandals from the Spring 2010 collection which look out of place.

Perrey Reeves went for old Hollywood glamour wearing a red one-shoulder Michelle Jonas gown with a sexy thigh-high split.

Jimmy Choo heels and K.Brunini’s Body Armour cuffs on both wrists complete the look.

Debi Mazar always wears me out when she hits the red carpet because she always looks amazing.

She’s working the hell out of this sexy lace Isabel Toledo dress. Victoria Beckham would be proud of this pose.

Debi was my favourite at this event.

Emmannuelle Chriqui wore a plunging white mini Yigal Azrouël dress with cape-like sleeves and an open back.

Her look was paired with a black sequined bag and Christian Louboutin ‘Madame Butterfly’ booties.

Janet Montgomery’s peacock confection is interesting, but slightly OTT.

18.01.10 Worst Dressed

2010 Golden Globe Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
I never liked this Zac Posen Resort 2010 dress on the runway, and I’m sorry to say but I think it’s even worse on Tina Fey.

The print is quite garish and I just hate this awkward length on the skirt.

The only thing I did like were her nude satin Christian Louboutin bow T dorect peep toe d’orsay heels.

Most Predictable Award
We get it, we get it Mariah Carey.

You’ve got big boobs, but must show them off at every occasion?

I did applaud Mariah’s attempt become more sophisticated on the red carpet, but she’s slowly slipped back to tackyville.

Next time please cover up the twins and try to discover what demure and sophisticated means.

Inappropriately Dressed Award
Perrey Reeves looks great in her black and teal Herve Leger dress, but it’s NOT event appropriate.

Had it been a gown it would’ve worked better for me, but this dress was way to casual.

I Guess You Couldn’t Be Bothered To Dress Up Award
Julia Roberts wore a very simple black knee-length vintage YSL dress.  So simple it bored me to tears.

OK the necklace jazzes it up a bit, but I can’t help feeling that her poor stylist had to fight to get her to wear it.

She carried a Christian Louboutin clutch.

Most Disappointed Award
The one person I was looking forward to seeing on this red carpet was Carey Mulligan.

Unfortunately I wasn’t wowed by her navy and black organza Nina Ricci Spring 2010 modified gown.

I think the runway version is way more interesting with the asymmetrical neckline and the lace skirt.

Her look was completed with Fred Leighton jewels.

Worst Supported Award
For someone who’s spent a lot of time promoting bra’s I was very surprised at Heidi Klum’s lack of support in her ice blue Roberto Cavalli dress.

Too Sombre Award
Maybe it was the weather but I just wasn’t feeling the lack of colour in January Jones’ look.

Normally she wears lots of bright colours, but it was  her black Lanvin gown really gave me the blues.

I also really disliked that heavy black headband.

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.

“Entourage” Sixth Season LA Premiere

Hayden Panettiere doesn’t star in “Entourage”, but she stole the limelight at the sixth season premiere last night.

The actress look stunning wearing a Christian Cota Spring 2008 cream strapless cocktail dress with seafoam green beaded leather overlay.

Her dress was shorten to suit her sassy style, whilst she accessorized with nude peep-toes and a matching clutch.

I adore Perrey Reeves’ Reem Acra Spring 2009 orange paillette covered cowl neck dress.

It was one of my favourites from this collection, so I’m firstly happy to see it on the red carpet, and I secondly I happy Perry did the dress justice.

She looks amazing and her gold heels perfected the look.

This Stella McCartney Spring 2009 bandage dress only looks classy in the right hands (body) and with the right accessories.

Alexis Dziena’s ankle tied black heels makes this dress look a bit tacky.

She should’ve worn the mesh runway heels.

Carla Gugino is perfection – as always – wearing a sexy fitted black sequined Twenty Cluny Fall 2009 dress.

Her body looks outstanding in this dress.  I’m in totally awe.

I adore the neckline of this dress and the fact that Carla kept her neck bare as the dress speaks for itself.

Jimmy Choo’s complete the look.

Jamie-Lynn Sigler opted for a sexy zebra print Donna Karan dress which showed off her toned legs.

The fit and the colour work really well for her.

Emmanuelle Chriqui otherwise known as Sloan in the TV show wore a Jenny Packham nude and black satin gown with a very deep plunging neckline.

The second I saw Emmanuelle, Mariah Carey sprang to mind.

Social Events Of The Week

I Love Gen Art: 15th Anniversary Benefit, New York

Whitney Port channeled a swinging 60s look wearing a gorgeous black sequined Pamella Roland Spring 2009 mini dress with silver sequined circles and bell sleeves.

The shoes really let her down, but everything else works for me.

Audi TDI Dinner, LA

Miranda Kerr stepped out with her beau Orlando Bloom looking very summery wearing a nude bandage dress from the Stella McCartney Spring 2009 collection, which complemented her nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Her look was complete with a crisp white blazer and a Prada lace bowler bag.

“Hung” Series Premiere, LA

I adore the vivid raspberry colour of Perrey Reeves’ silk one shoulder Reem Acra Resort 2009 dress which drapes so elegantly.

Jimmy Choo Flynn mirrored leather sandals complete this stunning look.

Anne Heche wore a black Paule Ka dress with a stunning silver necklace which really brought life to her look.

Black Jimmy Choo platforms completed her look.

Dsquared2 Menswear Show, Milan

Kelly Osbourne goes for a sophisticated look wearing a cobalt blue voluminous shift dress paired with studded Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

The star kept her punky blonde crop slicked down to complete the look.

AXE Instinct Power Of Leather Launch Party, New York

Ashlee Simpson she shows off her figure in a mirrored silver mini skirt teamed with a black sweetheart Ina Soltani bustier corset top and sexy gladiator heels.

“Tetro” Madrid Premiere

Without even trying Maribel Verdu oozes sexy sophistication in her LBD which she wears with YSL criss cross heels.

“Public Enemies” LA Premiere

This is not my favourite look for Rosario Dawson.

The Dries van Noten mosaic print dress is so shapeless and unflattering on her.

35th Annual Saturn Awards, LA

Kristen Bell’s dress has far too much going on with the fringe and the criss cross bolero.  This has to be one of her worst ever red carpet looks.

Social Events Of The Week

VH1 Save The Music Foundation, LA

Jordin Sparks was radiant wearing a BCBG Max Azria chiffon maxi dress, with a pleated bodice.

The maxi ombre dress has a very bohemian feel to it. I love the ocean feel of the sea green and blue colours.

This is a fabulous dress, I really love it.

Singer Sara Bareilles’ Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent print belted wrap dress was slightly less informal, but she still looks fantastic.

In the long shot, the dress looks to be covered in black polka dots, but in the close-up, you can see the fish-print.

Sara’s look was complete with strappy sandals.

The Opening Of Annenberg Space For Photography, LA

Courtney Love is rock chick chic personified, wearing a black studded Lanvin Fall 2007 dress.

Kate Mara’s pink Dior dress is incredibly cute and delicate, with it’s ruffled bodice, and embroidered skirt.

Nice look, shame about the heavy black clutch.

Rachel Zoe And Decadestwo Charity Benefit, LA

What a refreshing changed to see Nicole Richie in something that’s not a maxi dress, nor boho inspired.

Nicole wore a taffeta pleated black mini skirt, which was very poufy, and did a good job of hiding her baby bump.

A printed scarf, white sleeveless top and YSL Trib Two’s completed the look.

Rachel Zoe exits her car gracefully, wearing a black jumpsuit, and pair of those incredible Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 two-tone platforms.

The Stylista also carried a lust worthy Hermes Medor clutch, and wore a large gold and silver link necklace.

Perry Reeves’ emerald green mini Dior dress with a bow and pleated skirt detail, is complimented with a very large matching ring.

Figures Of Speech: Fundraising Gala, London

Each item in the House of Holland Fall 2009 collection was striped.

So it was easy for me to recognise both Pixie Geldof’s wooly mammoth coat and long sleeved dress.

Considering Pixie fancies herself as a ‘wild child’. I’m surprised she picked the safest colours.

"Evening Of 20th Century Glamour" Benefiting MOCA


Last night the owner of Decades, Cameron Silver, presented a glorious 20th Century Haute Couture fashion show. The dresses and gowns were from his very own vintage couture boutique.

The stunning Norman Norell amethyst mermaid gown is most definitely my favourite. I can see it on someone tall and elegant like Cate Blanchett or Ellen Pompeo.


Mother-to-be Rachel Griffiths, co-hosted this event with Cameron.

Rachel wore a vintage Sarmi red and black printed dress, with a black bow ribbon detail.

Her look was complete with a black clutch and H Stern jewels.


With her growing baby bump perfectly concealed for this occasion, Nicole Richie wore a floaty, earth-mother-style vintage Zandra Rhodes kaftan, with nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

I love her python gold clutch.


Nicky Hilton’s zip flower dress, reminds me of the Versace Spring 2009 zip hearts dress, but I don’t think it’s from the same collection.

This mini proved that LBDs don’t need to be boring. Nicky completed her look with Jimmy Choo Glenys python gladiators.


Liz Goldwyn poses with Marisa Tomei, who was a busy girl last night.

Liz wore an amazing vintage Balenciaga Haute Couture black dress. The satin bowed dress has a baby-doll silhouette, and beautiful tiered lace skirt.

This is my second favourite look of this event, after Marisa.


With her black sexy Brian Atwood sandals, Zoe Saldana wore a sparkling silver vintage James Galanos mini dress with a black satin trim.

The dress is complimented with a H Stern necklace, and matching diamond earrings.

I would’ve love to have seen the sexy tank dress without the oversized blazer, but as we’re seeing more and more, this is a huge trend on the red carpet at the moment.


Garcelle Beauvais was certainly out to have fun last night, and that showed in this vintage Bill Blass feathered hem confection. The dress was covered in gold sequins, to make her one of the golden girls of the night.

Pink Brian Atwood sandals and H Stern jewels complete the look.


On the Decades website it says this vintage Bill Blass leopard print dress is ‘not for everyone‘, and I would agree.

The only other person I can see wearing this dress with the same fearless attitude as Lisa Rinna is Scary Spice, Melanie B.

It may not be to your taste, but you have to agree that Lisa is working the hell out of this dress.

Kudos to her.


*Jaw drop*

What no black? No Dolce & Gabbana? Someone check Rose McGowan’s pulse.

Rose took a night off wearing her favourite Italian’s designers, to wear this sweeping red vintage Loris Azzaro gown.

Her gown was co-ordinated with her lippie, and her look was complete with all gold accessories.


An angelic Allison Miller wore a strapless vintage Ungaro floral dress, which just goes to prove that the floral trend will never die.


Perrey Reeves dazzles in a vintage Loris Azzaro black dress. The black dress stands out with a diamond sequined detail on the empire waist.
