Net-a-Porter and Mr Porter Host A Party For Dolce & Gabbana

In London last night Net-A-Porter.com and Mr Porter.com hosted a party to celebrate Dolce & Gabbana joining the forever expanding list of brands on their virtual shelves.

Celebs donned in their finest Dolce & Gabbana treads to join in the celebrations at Net-A-Porter HQ.

Naomi Campbell: The supermodel and long-term friend of Mr Dolce and Mr Gabbana wore an animal print chiffon halter dress with black Alaia cut-out suede sandals.

Alexandra Burke: The British singer opted to wear a dark pink Dolce & Gabbana strapless lace bustier which she teamed with black lace Dolce & Gabbana peep-toes and a gold clutch. The clutch is really not working for me. Like really really not working for me.

Jamie Winstone: As you know I have a soft spot for Jamie. The British actress is never boring on the red carpet. She opted to wear a colourful Dolce & Gabbana floral print satin dress which she paired with Michael van der Ham blue devore wedges, which were worn over black socks. I was going to say that her shoe choice is shocking, but everyone else opted for black heels so I should be grateful she did something different.Read More…

Best Dressed Of The Week – Emmy Rossum In J. Mendel & Queen Latifah In Edition by Georges Chakra

Despite Kristen Stewart taking an early lead, Emmy Rossum was your eventual winner this week.

She caught you attention wearing a gorgeous J. Mendel Spring 2011 two tone orange ensemble which she wore for her appearance on the “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” show.

I knew Queen Latifah would be my favourite the second I saw her in her breath-taking Edition by Georges Chakra gown, which she wore whilst presenting the 2011 People’s Choice Awards.

It may be the first BDOTW poll of the year, but I know come December 2011 I will still remember this gorgeous look whilst putting together my BDOTY list.

Whether she actually makes the list only time will tell.

Thanks for all your comments this week. It’s so good to be back x

Queen Latifah In Edition by Georges Chakra – 2011 People’s Choice Awards

Joint Best Dressed & The Hostess with the Mostest Award
Queen Latifah was the host for 2011 People’s Choice Awards last night.

Both her stunning looks were custom made Edition by Georges Chakra Spring 2011 gowns.

In both cases her look was preferred over the runway.

This turquoise ombre chiffon halter gown with Lucite beaded necklace neckline is heavenly against her smooth skin.

It’s like looking out into the Caribbean sea.

This was my favourite of the night.

Her second Edition by Georges Chakra Spring 2011 gown was a vibrant fuchsia crepe one shoulder gown with crystal beading and satin strap detail.

All the detail is lost in white on the runway, so I’m glad Queen Latifah brought it to life for us.

She totally works both looks.

Which is your favourite?

Runway To The 2010 BET Awards Stage

Queen Latifah was the gracious host of the 2010 BET Awards, so she had several wardrobe changes.

One of her looks was a beautiful Edition by Georges Chakra Spring 2010 gown.

She looked stunning in her black crepe fitted gown with silver stone embellished shoulder details.

Monica shut it down wearing a black Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2010 Couture dress.

I know many of you are o.v.e.r bold shoulders, but I thinks this is one fierce look.

I love the pussy bow to add a touch of chic elegance.

Despite not being a fan of thigh-high boots, I think they work perfectly with her dress.

Keyshia Cole rocked the stage wearing a black sleeveless top with a tomato red Willow Fall 2010 asymmetric draped tulle skirt.

3rd Annual BET Honors

Gabrielle Union was one of the few at this event that didn’t bore me along with Taraji.

Gabrielle wore a figure hugging nude strapless gown with silver detailing. Nice dress, shame about the hair.

Taraji P. Henson also opted for nude Alberta Ferretti gown which was gorgeous against her skin, but the hunched shoulders really bother me.

There’s something very dated and home-made about Mya’s red strapless gown with a jeweled detail.

She obviously wanted to stand out on this red carpet – which she does – but for all the wrong reason.

Queen Latfiah continue to her slide into boringville.

Her LBD is nice enough, but in she needs to bring back the colour.

Something tells me I’ve seen Mary J Blige wear this one-sleeved dress before.

This is the best I’ve seen Tichina Arnold in a long while. Her black gown with a feathered skirt doesn’t often me.

This has to be one of the most boring and poorly dressed red carpet events of the year.

The BET Honors airs on February 1 at 8 pm on BET.

Queen Latifah Hosts The 2010 People’s Choice Awards Wearing Edition by Georges Chakra

When it was announced that Queen Latifah would be hosting the People’s Choice Awards for the second year running I was very excited to see what she was going to wear.

She makes great choices like this stunning angelic Edition by Georges Chakra Spring 2010 gown.

The white strapless crepe gown with chiffon draped gathering at front was accented with a gold and silver crystal striped waistband.

Gold accessories perfect this look.

Unfortunately I was only excited about the Chakra look. Her other two looks were a bit bland by her standards.

The one shoulder dress with the Valentino bow front black heels was a cute look, but a host is meant to dazzle and neither of these looks do that.
