Who Wore Monique Lhuillier Better? Mandy Moore or Rita Wilson

Mandy Moore attended this year’s Oscars wearing a beautiful Monique Lhuillier Spring 2011 nude sequin and tulle gown.

The delicate gown features a heavily sequined bodice, clustered together to form a sweetheart neckline. A barely visible overlay drapes down into sequined half-sleeves.

Mandy made the dress her biggest statement and added only a pair of earrings and a matching ring to the dress. She wore her hair in a chic bun and added a splash of colour with some coral lipstick.

Rita Wilson wore the same dress to attend the Buckingham Palace State Banquet with husband Tom Hanks last week.

She wore gold accessories with her look, which included dangly earrings, an intricate cuff and a matching clutch which added to the gorgeous sparkles of the dress. Like Mandy, she also chose to wear her hair up in a bun.

Both women look amazing, but my vote has to go to Mandy.

Even though it was a predictable choice, I definitely think it’s more age-appropriate on her. I also think Rita went a little overboard with the blush and would have preferred more subtle makeup paired with this dress.

Rita Wilson In Monique Lhuillier – Buckingham Palace State Banquet

The Obama’s weren’t the only American’s in town to attend the Buckingham Palace State Banquet in London yesterday.

Tom Hanks his gorgeous wife Rita Wilson were spotted leaving Claridge’s hotel enroute to Buckingham Palace for dinner with President Barack Obama and the Queen.

Like the President, Tom also wore a white bow tie which was clearly the theme for the evening.

Rita was dazzling wearing a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2011 gown.

Her nude off-the-shoulder tulle gown was embroidered with golden embellishments.

She kept the gold theme going by adding gold accessories.

I would’ve been tempted to add a belt to this look, but I think Rita manages to work this look well without one.

2010 Emmy Awards – Rita Wilson In Prada

Maverick Award
God bless Rita Wilson.

She may always be a red carpet plus one, but she never stands in the shades.

The wife of Emmy winner Tom Hanks looked outstanding on the red carpet at the 2010 Emmy Awards.

I don’t want anyone to say’s she too old to wear this Prada Spring 2010 dress, because she totally rocks it and women half her age haven’t dared to wear the web-like crystal dresses from this collection.

I love that she went top to toe with this look by also wearing the Prada glass heels.

So far I’ve only seen Anna Dello Russo don these heels.

Rita was definitely one of my favourites on the night.

She gets it.

I wish more who walk the red carpet would too.

Miuccia Prada has already worn this dress too.

Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Inaugural Gala

Eloisa Dudamel stuns in a gorgeous orange Angel Sanchez Resort 2010 asymmetrical edged hemmed gown.

I really loved this gown when I saw the lookbook on nymag.com, but I was so wished I couldn’t see it from the front.

Eloisa grants that wish in spectacular style.

I’m glad she picked the orange.

Jenna Elfman walked the red carpet wearing an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 bod-con black and red houndstooth knit dress with bow collar.

What a stylish way to show off your baby bump.

Sophia Bush has wobbled a bit on the red carpet, but she was back to her outstanding best wearing an eggplant BCBG Max Azria one-shoulder tiered gown.

Does Rachel Griffiths really want me to believe she had a baby back in June, because on this evidence I don’t believe her.

She looks fabulous in her fitted LBD.

Rita Wilson always gives me fabulous.  She is the perfect +1.

I love how her silver dress shimmers.

Angela Bassett is a lot let fabulous.

She looks older than Rita, when in fact Rita is the older of the two.

Angela, please get your groove back.
