Camilla Belle & Poppy Delevigne For Alberta Ferretti: Pitti Immagine Uomo 79

Pitti Immagine Uomo is the opening event of the European and International Fashion Fair season.

Camilla Belle opened the Alberta Ferretti presentation during the 79th Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence, Italy last night.

The show featured many celebrities, socialites, researchers, lawyers, sportive women connected to important humanitarian causes and iconic Supermodel Carmen Dell’Orefice.

“I wanted a group of women as different as possible from each other, to understand that every woman in her own way may be beautiful,” said the designer.

The special showcase consisted of 30 dresses created exclusively for this event.

Each look was gorgeous oozing femininity. The breath-taking collection consisted of floaty ethereal gowns, fur trimmed coats, cocktail dress and for the finale a stunning white feather accented dress as worn by Poppy Delevigne.

You can watch the full runway show at Alberta Ferretti live.

Italian singer-songwriter Elisa provided a magical, musical backdrop by playing an acoustic version of tracks of her new album “Ivy”.

Gucci Icon-Temporary Flash Sneaker Store Launch

Evan Rachel Wood seems to be the Gucci girl of the moment.

On this occasion she wore a one shoulder mini Gucci Fall 2009 dress which has already been worn on the red carpet.

Her sparkling dress was covered in green and black striped crystals which she belted as per the runway.

She paired her mini dress with a large black cuff and black multi-strap high-heeled sandals to toughen up her gorgeous look.

Claire Danes is not much of a dare devil on the red carpet, so I’m not surprised she opted for one of the pieces from the Gucci Resort 2010 collection and not the rock chick Fall 2009 collection.

Her stripy lemon and blue dress already has me wishing for summer 2010, but her Gucci triple platform pumps had me wishing she’d picked another pair of heels to go with this summery dress.

Frida Giannini hosted this event, and like Donatella Versace in the previous post, Frida is already sporting her own Spring 2010 collection.

The Creative Director wore a simple black ensemble including skinny pants, and a black blazer with an interesting fringed detail on the shoulders.

Poppy Delevigne wore a silver Gucci Fall 2009 over-sized tunic top paired with black leggings.

This is quite a casual look, but not too casual to make her look like she shouldn’t have walked the red carpet at this event.

Mischa Barton looks good.

She keeps on smiling no matter what life throws at her.

The star worked a black sequined long-sleeved dress with plunging neckline.

Red carpet ankle boots as standard.

amfAR’s Inaugural Milan Fashion Week Event

When I met Donatella Versace on Friday after her Versace Spring 2010 presentation, she told me that she likes to modified pieces from the runway to suit her body, and that’s exactly what she did here.

A tropical print mini dress with coil details at the waist, becomes a figure-hugging black dress with coil details cinching in Donatella’s already tiny waist.

I adore both looks.  She really is amazing.

Janet Jackson’s Versace Fall 2009 gown wasn’t modified but hers was electric blue to the runway’s black.

The wrap around gown was also nipped in at the waist to give Miss Janet that perfect hourglass figure.

Giovanna Battaglia does a good job of wearing this Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 blue and pink dress with a lace overlay without making it look comical.  In fact she looks better than the runway.

She paired her mini dress with a pair of LV Fall 2009 lace up boots with a pink trim and a pink clutch from the same collection.

Dita Von Teese wore a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 hot pink satin long sleeved ruched dress with black waist belt.

This dress is quite refreshing on Dita as her dress with the exaggerated shoulders isn’t too structured.

I doubt Poppy Delevigne knows who Chiling Lin is, but she OWNED this Salvatore Ferragamo gown when she wore it to the 2009 China Huabiao Film Awards last month.

Because of that fact this stunning gown just looks OK on Poppy as I know how amazing this gown really is on the right person. Plus Chiling wore it without the sheer detail on the neckline which is not doing much for Poppy.

Anja Rubik is one of my favourite models of the moment.

The super look gorgeous in a dazzling Gucci Fall 2009 embellished sparkling mini dress.

She paired her edgy dress with studded booties to complete her rock chic look.

Gwyneth Paltrow wore the runway grey version of this Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2009 gown last year, but I much prefer Maria Sole Brivio Sforza’s bright coral version.

My only claim to fame is being the first to recognise that Angelina Jolie wore this Max Azria Spring 2009 dress back-to-front at the SAG Awards earlier this year.

WAG Kristina Liliana Matthaeus, wife of legendary footballer Lothar Matthaeus, wore the dress the right way at this event pairing her cornflower blue gown with a snake skin clutch.

I’m not quite sure when I pushed the snooze button on Rachel Bilson, but I even though she is wearing a beautiful Salvatore Ferragamo gown with a black clutch by the same designer I don’t feel wowed by any means.

This Bilson/Ferragamo collaboration just doesn’t feel natural.

I’m not crazy about the bodice on Chanel Iman’s black silk gown, but she looks very elegant and statuesque on the red carpet, but she should have got her guest to stand up stream from her so he could have looked a bit taller.

Her sparkling belt and diamanté wedges add bit of sparkle to her look.

Didn’t Linda Evangelista once say that she’d rather go naked than wear fur?

Who Wore Ralph Lauren Better? Heidi Montag or Poppy Delevigne

On one of her rare days not wearing Herve Leger dresses Heidi Montag wore this adorable floral Ralph Lauren Spring 2008 strapless tiered dress to the 134th Kentucky Derby in Louisville last May.

As much as I loved the dress, I adore the large fuschia hat even more.

This is one of the rare times when head-to-toe I’ve loved what the reality TV star has worn.

British model Poppy Delevigne wore the same dress recently when she attended “The Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Final” in Midhurst, England.

Her pretty dress was paired with a biker leather jacket, a large black belt, gold gladiators and a cream clutch.

I love Poppy’s accessories, but I really hate the leather jacket so Heidi wins this for me.

The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

Thandie Newton gets another gold star this time for wearing this multi-coloured Matthew Williamson Resort 2010 dress.

Her look is almost a head-to-toe carbon copy of the runway look, but Thandie opted for a skinny gold studded belt instead of the wider runway belt, and she has a smaller bejeweled clutch.

Nude cut-away ankle boots complete this stunning look.

Best Dressed of the Week is going to be very crowded with Thandie and Emma’s looks.

Roisin Murphy finally does one of the silk voluminous shoulder pieces from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 collection justice.

I’m quite surprised her look is so close to the runway version, as she usually mixes things up a bit.

Her many accessories included bejeweled belt, gold necklace and large copper sequined bag which she carried as a clutch.

My only disappointment are those black patent heels.  Too stale for this kind of look.

Little Boots arrived wearing the same D&G silk brocade jacket with leggings, which Emma Watson wore in her editorial for Elle UK.

Little Boots is quiet daring with her style choices, so I’m surprised she didn’t copy the runway look.

After her disappointing looks at Haute Couture Fashion Week, Dasha Zhukova gets back to her stunning best wearing a cream Azzedine Alaia dress with a frou-frou skirt and a matching waist belt.

Her dress is gorgeous which she complements with a black and white print cropped jacket and Azzedine Alaia shell decorated heels.

After giving birth to her first child a few months ago Tess Daly has already snapped back to her perfect best.

The TV presenter showed off her stunning pins in this gold See by Chloé mini dress with a tiered bodice, which was folded in the skirt to add subtle volume.

Tess accessorized with some very sexy Jimmy Choo Billie Lizard-print sandals and mirrored clutch.

Meg Matthews continues to channel a very demure look. The wild rock chick seems to be a thing of the past.

Meg is wearing the black version of the same Antonio Berardi tweed crew neck dress she wore to the “Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince” UK Premiere.

Poppy Delevigne looks super sexy wearing a long sleeved black embellished mini dress with a pair of Topshop frill sandals.

Lily Collins has walked many red carpets, but I’m still yet to see her do anything noteworthy.

Phil Collins’ daughter is supposed to be an actress but I couldn’t name a single film or TV show she has been in.

Lily wore a lace Topshop lace bodycon dress with some Topshop black and gold sandals which very much look like Louis Vuitton Spicy sandals.

Gold jewelery and a black patent clutch completed the look.

Erin O’Connor wore a plunging jade-green Donna Karan Grecian style dress.

The shapeless dress should drown Erin’s slender frame, but the drapes and her elegant stature prevent that.

Natalie Imbruglia red gown is gorgeous but the Chanel black and white bag is so heavy it feels like a slap in the face.

A black clutch would have been much more subtle.

Olivia Palmero wore a champagne coloured dress with a dazzlingly Zara clutch, Topshop leather disc jacket, and Topshop velcro strapped heels.

Either these girls love Topshop as much as I do, or the retailer sponsored this event.

Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition Preview Party

Agyness Deyn seems less annoying lately, mostly because she isn’t shoved in my face 24/7.

The model wore a gunmetal grey Giles Fall 2009 ultra mini dress, on a very mild evening in London, whilst carrying a blue House of Holland bag in the shape of a Monopoly house.

The super, who is only 5ft 8in, looks super-sized wearing a pair of black and white Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

The berry shade of lippie doesn’t work for me, but was the right choice for her overall look, unlike her bubble gum pink nails.

Christopher Kane’s designs are so unique and so well structured, I’m surprised we don’t see more of his pieces on the red carpet.

Yasmin le Bon wore a nude Christopher Kane high neckline dress from his Spring 2009 collection, which is detailed with horizontal and vertical black leather scallops covering the dress.

The exquisite detail of this show-piece makes a very strong style statement, and I’m glad Yasmin pulls this of so effortlessly.

A fabulous dress, needs fabulous heels, and Yasmin doesn’t disappoint in that department either, wearing a stunning pair of Christian Dior Spring 2009 heels.

I don’t tend to find socialites very interesting, but I love Poppy Delevigne’s Chanel Spring 2009 gown.

She’s totally breath-taking, as she wears the gown which just an elegant grace, that she totally puts the model in the shade.

I much prefer the gown, without the brooch chain detail.

Erin O’Connor was a regal as ever, wearing black Temperley London Fall 2009 gown, with gold embroidered details.  She opted out of wearing the sari, which was presented on the runway.

Stella McCartney is so ahead of the game, I think it’s safe to assume that this glorious floral confection, with bold shoulders, and sculptural hips will be part of her Spring 2010 collection

Her shoes are also pretty spectacular, but they look like they’d pinch after a while.

Regardless, they are on my wish list. I like a good challenge.

I normally love what Beth wears, but this string vest look, I can’t get on board with.

Beth joins a long list of stars who have fallen for the ever so lust worthy Louis Vuitton Spicy heels.

All I can say about Alexa Chung is, I like her pink Chanel bag. The rest is to be expected, especially her two-tone hair.
