Runway To Sidewalk – Rihanna In Balmain

After a brief visit to London, Rihanna’s already back in New York.

She caught up with BFF Katy Perry, as the two were seen having dinner at upscale Chinese restaurant Philippe Chow on Friday night.

The first picture I saw of Rihanna was from the knees up, so I assumed she was wearing thigh-high boots, but the long shot shows she is actually wearing black jeans who’s bottom half is made of leather !?!?!?!?!?!

Rihanna usually favours Alexander Wang for her nights out, but on this occasion she opted a Balmain quilted leather jacket.

The runway version was velvet, but the leather jackets fits better with Rihanna’s edgy vibe.

What I love about this jacket is the silver chain detailing down the front, on neckline and on cuffs which are framed with tulle accents.

Shades at night and hot pink lipstick complete this look for RiRi.

Apart from the shades and the fact there’s too much black for my liking, this isn’t a bad look.

Runway To “Inglourious Basterds” London Premiere – Rihanna In Alexander McQueen

I’m not sure why Rihanna is currently in London, but whilst in town she took the opportunity to check out Quentin Tarantino’s latest film -“Inglourious Basterds” – at the London premiere tonight.

The singer wore a black 3/4 length sleeved Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 jumpsuit, whilst channeling 80s Madonna adding multiple pearls and long lace fingerless gloves.

Her look was complete with a pair of unnecessary shades and black Maison Martin Margiela shoe boots.

I REALLY hate the glasses they make her look so ridiculous, especially as it rained tonight.  Other than that this look is much to be expected from Rihanna.  Slightly over-the-top. May have worked better without the pearls and with the runway belt.

Social Events Of The Week

Ischia Global Film & Music Fest 2009, Italy

Elsa Pataky always seems to be in couture weather it’s Elie Saab or Armani Privé.

On this occasion she wore an open back Armani Privé Spring 2009 dress with the beautiful web-like embroidered detail.

2009 Giffoni Film Festival, Italy

Eva Mendes was the epitome of summer chic wearing a Tibi Fall 2009 belted floral print maxi dress with Samantha Willis jewels and Stuart Weitzman “Alex” crochet espadrilles.

Da Silvano Restaurant, New York

Rihanna was out to lunch in New York where she was spotted showing off her new mohawk.

She’s clipped the sides and back of her head, leaving the top untouched. She rocks it well, but it’s a look I’ll never copy.

Rihanna isn’t shy as she has been wearing very revealing clothing lately.

I think this is the 4th time I’ve seen her bra through the sheer tops she loves to wear.

This time she wore a sheer top over a striped bikini with a pair of skinny ankle zip jeans.

She completed her look with Maison Martin Margiela shoe boots and a Nina Ricci bag.

“Charlotte Russe Fall 2009 Launch Event”

Jessica Szohr is fast becoming a red carpet regular. This time she was wearing a two-tone Charlotte Russe playsuit which showed off her toned legs.

She completed her look with beautiful black strappy sandals, a large statement necklace and a maroon clutch.

Michelle Trachtenberg’s black dress is so so, but I love her Giuseppe Zanotti clutch with multi-coloured stars and her electric blue ankle boots.

I can’t really fault Rumer Willis’ look.

Yes it’s all black and verging on dull, but at least the fit is right and she doesn’t look awkward.

Her look is paired with Christian Louboutin Paquita sandals and a black D&G clutch.

Casio Exilim MOBILE NYC Launch, New York

For once Taylor Momsen isn’t dressed like a Guns n’ Roses groupie, but her eye make-up is too heavy for that cute white dress she is wearing

Stella McCartney Presents New Collection At The Corner Berlin, Germany

Cool and chic as always Stella McCartney presented her new collection in Berlin wearing a Resort 2010 black cropped jacket, a white half tucked in tee and ombre ankle jeans from her own collection.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Anna Paquin channeled her inner geisha girl wearing this black figure-hugging dress Alexander McQueen dress with Jimmy Choo heels and a chic updo.

It’s On With Alexa Chung, New York

What’s with everyone wearing leather this summer?

We first had Chloe Sevigny wearing a leather jumpsuit this week, and now we have Ashley Greene wearing leather shorts.

The “Twilight” actress wore them with her cute floral Escada blouse to the MTV Studios this week.

Her sassy look was complete with sexy strappy sandals and a Gucci Hysteria bag.

Runway To Sidewalk – Rihanna In Gareth Pugh

Rihanna was seen out and about shopping in New York yesterday.

During the day she wore a simple oversized Helmut Lang white shirt showing her bright orange bra, with denim shorts, white loafers and an Alexander Wang Denim Leather Brenda zip bag.

At night she transformed into an edgier look wearing a fitted white and black detailed jacket Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2009 collection with a black mini-skirt, and white gloves as she headed out to the Rose Bar at Gramercy Park Hotel.

Her look was completed with sunglasses – yes at night – and black Christian Louboutin heels.

I love this look minus the gloves. Rihanna is back.

A few weeks ago I feel she would have worn the WHOLE runway look, but she appears to have calmed down the extremes.

Her look is still edgy but less in your face.

29.06.09 In Her Closet

In Rihanna’s Closet – Giuseppe Zanotti, Alexander Wang & Lanvin

Rihanna didn’t attend the BET Awards this weekend, but she was spotted in New York City for the first time since her Chris Brown court date.

Despite being a no-show she still won “Beautiful Hair” and “Viewer’s Choice” Awards.

The singer exited a hotel looking cute wearing an Alexander Wang Oversized Sweatshirt Dress, with two tone black and yellow Giuseppe Zanotti wedges, and a cute leopard print Lanvin mini pop Leo shoulder bag.

Rhianna’s rumoured new boyfriend Rashard Lewis was also spotted at the same hotel.

Things that make you go hmmm.

Her oversized sweatshirt dress is available from Shopbop.com for $234.50.

Social Events Of The Week

“L.A. Candy” Book Signing, LA

Returning to her natural roots Lauren Conrad signed copies of her book “L.A. Candy” By Lauren Conrad for fans at the Grove yesterday.

Sporting a familiar hairstyle the former ‘Hills’ star wore a satin black mini-skirt, black Louboutin’s and a tie dyed batwing sleeved blouse.

It is me or does Lauren seem sincerely happy?  I guess not having to film the Hills is a welcome relief for her.

Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen Premiere, Sydney

Isabel Lucas split from her co-stars to promote “Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen” in Australia this week.

Whilst Megan Fox was dazzling the crowd in a bright fuschia pink Armani Privé dress, the Australian actress opted for a black embroidered Marchesa Fall 2009 jumpsuit.

Eh??? Jumpsuit I hear you say. Surprisingly this is a jumpsuit or a playsuit as I like to call the short versions.

On Isabel it’s hard to appreciate the embroidered detail because her playsuit has a black lining the runway version doesn’t have.

Tights, Jimmy Choo Tahiti glitter peep-toe pumps and a black headband completed the look.

Headbands will never been the same after Paris Hilton overused them during Cannes Film Festival.

‘Coco Avant Chanel’ Australian Premiere

Lara Bingle opted for one piece from the Chanel Fall 2009 collection to attend this premiere.

Her black bouclé jacket had white and black ruffled cuff detail, but thankfully not the white collar.

I don’t think the collar would have worked with her casual look of jeans and YSL ankle boots.

Carol’s Daughter Hand And Foot Spa, New York

Rihanna attended this opening wearing a very smart ensemble.

She teamed a sexy figure hugging slate grey A.L.C Twisty dress with a tailored Preen Hawk wool blazer and cute polka dot peep-toe heels.

It’s such a shame her wild hair is such a distraction from all that’s good about this look.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Jada Pinkett-Smith looked outstanding wearing a figure-hugging khaki Dolce & Gabbana strapless bustier dress with metallic skyscraper heels.

Jada’s body looks amazing and this dress full appreciates her stunning figure.

It looks like she has eased up on the weights which I’m very thankful for.

Celebration Dinner Honoring 2009 Los Angeles Film Festival Keyote Films, LA

Here’s another Dolce & Gabbana dress, this time it black and worn by Scarlett Johansson.

I love the ruched detail which runs down the front of her fitted dress and the cute puffy shoulders.

Gold satin peep toe pumps complete the look.

Hopefully we’ll see her wearing more colourful dresses in the future.

“Bruno” Paris Premiere

For some reason Isla Fisher’s reminds me of a mermaid in her strapless sea-green embellished Julien McDonald dress.

I think this is one of her worst ever red carpet looks.

The dress is looks like something you could pick up in a market plus her hair and make-up are just awful. Hugely disappointed in her.
