2010 Toronto Film Festival – Rosamund Pike In Alexander McQueen, Lanvin & Erdem

Rosamund Pike’s 2010 Toronto Film Festival adventure started with the “Barney’s Version” Cocktail Party at Grey Goose Soho House Club.

The British actress wore an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2010 black dress.

Her wool crepe pencil dress had Celtic embroidered pieces of lace inserted over a flesh silk georgette panel for a beautiful neckline detail.

Her dress is a tad shorter than the models which I much prefer on the young actress.

She paired her dress with an Alexander McQueen skull clasp clutch and black Sergio Rossi peep-toes.

For her “Made In Dagenham” Premiere she wore a cap sleeve dark metallic gold Lanvin dress with a black grosgrain belt.

I love the accessories excluding the clutch which feels too forced.

I need that necklace in my life.

My second favourite look after Pike’s McQueen dress was the Erdem Fall 2010 ensemble she wore to “The Variety Studio At Holt Renfrew.”

The look included a black Erdem ruffle bib sleeveless top with a floral print skirt.

Her runway look was paired again with her black Sergio Rossi peep-toes and just got out of bed hair.

Social Events Of The Week

2009 MusiCares “Person Of The Year” Gala, LA

Camilla Belle arrived at this event glowing with pure gorgeousity, wearing a short magenta Marchesa dress.

The mini dress had a multitude of beautiful embellishments all over the top half of the dress, and a satin skirt which kicks out at the back.

My number 2 girl crush completed the look with a Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch, and silver peep-toes.

AMPAS’ Scientific And Technical Awards Dinner, LA

I really wanted to love this gorgeous Oscar de la Renta strapless gown, but it’s Jessica Biel who ruins this for me.

This could be in on a mannequin for all the life she is putting into this gown.

2009 Writers Guild Awards, LA

Kate Walsh was one of the presenters at this event, and she looked so very harming wearing a black strapless Missoni Spring 2009 embellished gown.

Mena Suvari wore a Missoni look very similar to this, but hers was a jumpsuit.

“He’s Just Not That Into You” Australian Premiere

Ginnifer Goodwin braved the rain to attend this premiere wearing a lime green Brian Reyes Spring 2009 dress, with a rise and fall hem, and a matching croc belt.

She completed her look with black sandals.

I was loving the longer locks from the LA premiere. I’m not loving the crop so much.

The Reader Berlin Film Festival Premiere

This Lanvin tiered dress Kate Winslet chose for this premiere was perfectly pretty, but I am dying for her to get back to her colourful red carpet dresses.

At the moment it’s black, after black, after black with no wow-factor.

I hope she doesn’t wear black at the Oscars. I might just lose it if she does.

CBS’s The Early Show, New York

To promotes her new movie He’s Just Not Into You on CBS’s The Early Show, Jennifer Connelly looked very chic in a Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 ensemble, with Christian Louboutin Mary Jane heels.

Vogue Pre-BAFTA Party

Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s mini black embellished Balmain Spring 2009 dress, is dangerously close to giving her a wardrobe malfunction.

Claudia Schiffer doesn’t seem to have made an effort for this event.

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

Whilst Isla Fisher posed for photographers outside the David Letterman show, she wore a pretty white Zac Posen cap sleeve dress.

She gave her look an edge by wearing a clunky silver statement necklace, and Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy heels.

“The Private Lives of Pippa Lee” Photocall – Berlin Film Festival

Blake Lively is not only bland in New York, but also bland in Berlin.

Why did she just stop trying?

What is she wearing? Well Vena Cava of course, with Moschino Mary Janes.

Social Events Of The Week

Paris Hilton Arrives In London

Apparently there were pink taxis all over London yesterday, which could have only meant that Paris Hilton was in town.

Paris arrived at her press screening of Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend, wearing a very cute pale pink silk chiffon Jenny Packham dress with silver crystal beading embellishment.

Her silver pumps were also embellished, and she arrived with a Fendi bag, and winter white coat with a fur collar.

Nokia 5800 Launch Party, London

Of course Paris did not have an early night. She attended this Nokia launch event wearing a cute heavily embellished halter dress by Thai designer Disaya, with matching two tone heels.

Here we see yet another interesting look from Lady Ga-Ga.

With her hair in her now trademark Minnie Mouse-esque bow, the singer wore a black ultra-tight mini dress, with a large latex bow on the front.

She partnered her look with hot pink heels, black Ray Bans and leather gloves.

Quite a tame look for her ;)

VV Brown stood out in a bright blue Ashish for Topshop sequined mini dress. She paired her dress with leggings and peep-toe lace-up ankle boots.

The singer’s hair was rolled up into a retro quiff.

G’Day Australia Black Tie Gala, New York

Nicole Kidman stood alongside director/friend Baz Lurhmann at the G’Day Australia black tie gala at New York Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

The actress wore an incredibly sexy black gown, with an asymmetrical neckline, and a very daring thigh-high split.

She surprisingly completed her look with a pair of neon orange heels.

Santa Barbara Film Festival

Penelope Cruz was presented with the Chopin Outstanding Performer of the Year trophy on Saturday night during the 24th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

The Spanish actress wore a black dress Azzedine Alaia sleeveless dress with black tights and black cut-out pumps.

The dress is cute, but the camera is unforgiving, as it exposes her flesh coloured satin bra underneath.

After a succession of unimpressive red carpet looks, I am starting to worry that she will not wow me at the Oscars next month.

Costa Book Awards 2009, London

Rosamund Pike arrived wearing a RM by Roland Mouret Zola sleeveless dress.

You may not be able to see from this picture, but the dress has a very heavily detailed nude shoulder straps, pleats on the hip, a fish tail style to the front of the skirt.

“Hedda Gabler” Broadway Opening Night After Party, New York

Mary Louise Parker wore an satin teal blue Carlos Miele Spring 2008 halter dress, with black heels and Ivanka Trump jewels.

The Rest Of The Best & Worst @ The Costume Institute Gala

Best Of The Rest

Unfortunately pictures of ladies did not come through until later on today, but they are so fabulous, that they deserve to get a mention.

Diane von Furstenberg, and Joy Bryant are equally colourful in their gowns.

Joy works this turtle-neck gown well, in a way that Rachel Bilson could not pull off.

Natasha Richardson gave Beyonce a run for her money in being “pretty in pink”.

Melania Trump knows how to “bring over the top” glamour, in a way I adore. The colour, the volume, the pose, the sexy silhouette all scream “Look at me“.

Ellen Barkin is has a very sexy silhouette in her black gown with jeweled detail.

Venus Williams’ mocha taffeta dress is stunning on her, despite the fact she was dressed by André Talley.

Tamara Mellon wore a sexy black satin gown.

Janet Jackson wore a ice white Fall 2008 halter neck silk jersey gown, with silver embroidery on the halter.

Rosamund Pike appears to be the brand ambassador for Roland Mouret, as this is the third red carpet event in a row she has worn the designer.

Ivanka Trump is quite the ice princesses in her chiffon gown.

How cute is Chanel Iman? So full of personality and she has a gorgeous ruffled dress to match that personality.

Jourdan Dunn opted for a purpled feathered mini creation.

Karolina Kurkova shimmers in her gown.

The supermodels show us exactly why they have earned their titles.

Helena Christensen sparkles, Christy Turlington stands out in red, Liya Kebede has a sexy slick silhouette, and Claudia Schiffer is adorable the baby blue ruffled gown.

Bee Schaffer and Lauren Bush both opted for purple. Bee’s dress was a gorgeous strapless ombre ball gown that is full of volume and has a thunderous storm feeling to it, whilst Lauren opted for a simple one-shouldered gown.

Worst

Stephanie Seymour, Donna Karan and Liv Tyler’s dresses all speak for themselves.

2008 BAFTA Awards

Kate Hudson was by far the best dressed at the BAFTA Awards tonight in this gold metallic Christian Dior gown. It was even better in real life.

Followed closely by Keira Knightley in Valentino Spring 2008 Couture, which is surprising considering she is the face of Chanel.

She will definitely win the Best Female Actress Award, so I would have thought she would have worn Chanel. Just goes to prove you just can’t always predict these things.

I must say I was very surprised that Emily Blunt chose this turquoise sequined Marc Bouwer Spring 2008 one-shouldered gown.

Although it is stunning and fits her body like a glove, I would have expected her to have worn a bigger name designer.

Thandie Newton is a sheer knockout in this black satin Alexander McQueen Spring 2008 asymmetric fuschia accented gown.

I am not a fan of lace, and I would have preferred if this dress was without it, but Thandie makes it work.

I admire Tilda Swinton for taking on this Christian Dior Spring 2008 Couture dress, but unfortunately for her, the dress wore her.

The dress had too much going on at the back, that it made her look like a ninja turtle with a shell or back-pack on her back.

There were better dresses from this collection she could have chosen.

Sienna Miller surprisingly went for a plain black dress from Christian Dior Spring 2008 collection.

I loved the detail on the back of this dress.

Poor Sienna, she would not have known as she tried her dress on, that with the fierce paparazzi flashes would expose her the fact that she did not wear any underwear.

French actress Marion Cotillard should have a contract with Chanel, because she wears their clothes so well.

Here she is wearing a sequined Chanel Fall 2007 Couture mini dress with an attached cape.

What a boring suck ass dress.

This is Dior and you would not believe it as Galliano is know for making dramatic, interesting dresses but on Jessica Biel, BORING.

Eva Green is also wearing a black Dior Spring 2008 gown, but with much more style and grace.

This RM by Roland Mouret Spring 2008 dress that Rosamund Pike is wearing, is not really a red carpet dress.

This is something I would wear to a meeting or on a date, but definitely not on the red carpet as gorgeous as it is.

This is a stunning turquoise Escada Spring 2008 dress on Naomi Harris, I just hate her hairstyle.

I am in pure lust with UK TV presenter Myleene Klass’ satin lavender dress.

Girlfriend sure knows how to show off her dress to maximum effect.
