2010 Met Costume Institute Gala – Rosario Dawson In Giambattista Valli

At the Costume Institute Gala history was made as Rosario Dawson finally wore a bold colour.

This is big for a woman who usually always wears black or navy.

Her lilac strapless Giambattista Valli gown is stunning.

I just love that ruffle skirt.

I’m very surprised about the fact that she’s not wearing much make-up, but it works with her light coloured gown.

The bustier gown has a black ribbon and diamond detail on the bodice which stops this look from being just a big fluffy gown.

Fred Leighton jewels complete the look.

“The Proposal” – Madrid Photocall & Press Conference

I’m in love with Sandra Bullock at the moment as she is giving us so many different flavours of fashion.

At the MTV Movie Awards she gave us a cute mini flirty Abaeté dress.

For The Proposal LA Premiere she wore a slightly edgy Alexander McQueen dress, and for her appearance on the Today Show she wore a fruity Alberta Ferretti floral dress.

Today whilst promoting her latest movie in Madrid she gave us classic look, wearing a Michael Kors chalk pinstripe origami dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

The dress has an artful origami-like pintucked detail which gathers over the skirt creating an elegant draping and volume. I also love the asymmetric hem and the contrasting patent belt.

Her look was paired with a black Azzedine Alaia ankle strap heels.

Immaculate as always.

The Black Eyed Peas New Album Launch Party At VIP Room Theater, Paris

Fergie combined fashion with music on this trip to Paris, as the Black Eyed Peas launched their new album at the VIP Room Theater in Paris last night.

After appearing at the Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 Menswear show yesterday she brought out her sex kitten wild side wearing an Alexander Wang mesh panel dress with some gladiator heels and a large silver cuff.

Montblanc White Nights Festival Reception and Gala Dinner, Russia

Princess of Darkness Eva Green is still sporting red hair, which pops against her black Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 gown with fringed detailing.

Her tangy orange lips doesn’t really work for me, but I do love her dress and the way it elegantly drapes on her.

“Bruno” Los Angeles Premiere

I have really struggled with Isla Fisher’s looks at the Bruno premiere’s, but there’s something about this green Stella McCartney Fall 2009 dress with a black lace overlay and a white yoke that I’m warming to.

Maybe it’s her glowing tan but I prefer the dress on her to the model on the runway.

Isla’s look is paired with black bamboo Stella McCartney clutch, Bulgari jewels and gold Mechante of London ‘Dita Rose’ python pumps.

Rosario Dawson kept her look simple, yet sophisticated wearing a Narciso Rodriguez LBD with a keyhole detail, a silver cuff and black peep-toes.

No make-up yet still so beautiful.  Some girls have all the luck.

Stephanie Pratt’s aqua one-shoulder draped dress is gorgeous, but she appears to have over-done her bronzer.

Less is more Stephanie.

Christina Ricci wears a slate grey slinky Opening Ceremony dress which is loosely cinched at the waist with gold belt.

The petite star boosts her tiny figure with a fierce pair of ultra-high chunky Lanvin heels.

I’ll guess that she’s not wearing a bra again, but at least we’re not seeing any tell-tale signs.

‘It’s On With Alexa Chung’, New York

Whilst making her way to the MTV studio’s to appear on Alexa Chung’s show, Leighton Meester was spotted wearing a Thakoon Resort 2009 printed dress with Christian Louboutin lace-up booties.

It’s good to see Leighton smiling and back to brunette locks which I much prefer on her.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Like it wasn’t hot enough yesterday Megan Fox sent temperatures soaring when she arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theater to appear on “Letterman” wearing a LBD by Herve Leroux with Courtney Crawford heels.

I think Megan is starting to get the hang of looking chic and sexy as she stunned wearing her sexy pencil dress with a sheer plunging neckline.

Her make-up was the right shade whilst her luscious brunette locks were swept to one side.

fuse’s “No. 1 Countdown”, New York

Early today Megan sported a very casual look at she appeared on the fuse’s no.1 countdown.

Sporting a biker leather jacket Megan wore a Stella McCartney leopard print tank top with black leggings and purple Brian Atwood “Lola” heels.

Social Events Of The Week

I Love Gen Art: 15th Anniversary Benefit, New York

Whitney Port channeled a swinging 60s look wearing a gorgeous black sequined Pamella Roland Spring 2009 mini dress with silver sequined circles and bell sleeves.

The shoes really let her down, but everything else works for me.

Audi TDI Dinner, LA

Miranda Kerr stepped out with her beau Orlando Bloom looking very summery wearing a nude bandage dress from the Stella McCartney Spring 2009 collection, which complemented her nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Her look was complete with a crisp white blazer and a Prada lace bowler bag.

“Hung” Series Premiere, LA

I adore the vivid raspberry colour of Perrey Reeves’ silk one shoulder Reem Acra Resort 2009 dress which drapes so elegantly.

Jimmy Choo Flynn mirrored leather sandals complete this stunning look.

Anne Heche wore a black Paule Ka dress with a stunning silver necklace which really brought life to her look.

Black Jimmy Choo platforms completed her look.

Dsquared2 Menswear Show, Milan

Kelly Osbourne goes for a sophisticated look wearing a cobalt blue voluminous shift dress paired with studded Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

The star kept her punky blonde crop slicked down to complete the look.

AXE Instinct Power Of Leather Launch Party, New York

Ashlee Simpson she shows off her figure in a mirrored silver mini skirt teamed with a black sweetheart Ina Soltani bustier corset top and sexy gladiator heels.

“Tetro” Madrid Premiere

Without even trying Maribel Verdu oozes sexy sophistication in her LBD which she wears with YSL criss cross heels.

“Public Enemies” LA Premiere

This is not my favourite look for Rosario Dawson.

The Dries van Noten mosaic print dress is so shapeless and unflattering on her.

35th Annual Saturn Awards, LA

Kristen Bell’s dress has far too much going on with the fringe and the criss cross bolero.  This has to be one of her worst ever red carpet looks.

“Home” LA Eco Garden Picnic and Screening

Redemption.

After a major blip at the MTV Movie Awards, Cameron Diaz is back in my good books, after she arrived at this event looking sensational wearing a Stella McCartney Resort 2010 dress.

You may remember just last week, Stella McCartney gave us a preview of this bold shouldered, sculptural hip dress, when she attended the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition Preview Party.

The white dress with black embroidered details, was paired with black pumps and black plexi bag both by Stella McCartney.

Ruby red lips, completed this simple, yet stunning look.

I’m getting a slight Gothic vibe from Charlize Theron, with the all black look, pale face and red lips.

Her black tank and black blazer, were paired with black lace cut out leggings from Stella’s Fall 2009 collection.

I’m not crazy about the look, but I don’t hate it either.

Liv Tyler can wear anything, and still look so fabulous.

This is a classic example were she just throws on a Stella McCartney tunic dress with champagne-coloured satin heels, and she’s instantly gorgeous.

She has simple make-up, just got out of bed hair, no accessories, no jewels…no fair.

Anjelica Huston works a aqua blue dupioni Stella McCartney Spring 2009 boyfriend blazer, with a all navy ensemble.

Normally I would frown at knee-high biker-style boots on the red carpet, especially in summer, but Daryl Hannah some how makes it work for her.

She could have worn thick black tights with her mini Stella McCartney dress, but she opted for sheer tights instead. Kudos.

Emily Deschanel wore a black leopard print t-shirt, black skinny trousers and grey pumps, for this simple youthful look.

Rachel Zoe would have styled her clients Cameron Diaz and Liv Tyler for this event, so she would known the dress code. But she opted to go against the grain, and wear a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 oriental-inspired kimono vest, with a feathered tasseled obi belt. Why? Because she can.

Her look was completed with navy silk cropped trousers, a black clutch and those YSL Trib Two’s.

Katharine McPhee also exuded a laid back casual look wearing a black silk dress, with a white blazer, black strappy sandals and beaded clutch all by Stella McCartney.

I adore that clutch. I need it in my life.

Rosario Dawson was elegantly chic wearing a in a navy dress with voluminous sleeves, and a cute bow for added interest.

Again, no accessories were needed, just grey pumps.

Who Wore Thierry Mugler Better? Kim Kardashian or Rosario Dawson

When Kim Kardashian attended the 2008 “Spike TV Video Game Awards” she glowed in a gold vintage Thierry Mugler gold lame strapless bustier dress, with a dramatic draped detail on the skirt.

The reality TV star, wore her dress with her black bra peeking over the dress, which made her dress look like a spaghetti strapped dress, with a black trim.

Rosario Dawson attended the “Global Green USA’s 13th Annual Millennium Awards” in Santa Monica, California this weekend wearing the same dress, with a gold stack of bracelets, and bronze heels.

The actress wore the dress as it was intended – strapless – with the sculptured flap up.

I prefer this dress on Kim, because she interpreted the look to suit her sassy style, plus I prefer her black accessories.

Who Wore Bottega Veneta Better? Rosario Dawson or Shu Qi


Rosario Dawson wore this Bottega Veneta Spring 2009 nude one-shoulder dress, with matching heels, to her LA premiere of Seven Pounds, with co-star Will Smith, back in December.

Shu Qi gave us our first re-run of Cannes Film Festival, as she wore the same dress to the jury photocall yesterday.

I love how Rosario shorten her dress, and how she folded the detail on her shoulder, to adapt her dress into an off-the-shoulder dress, plus those aqua earrings are heavenly, so she wins for me.

2009 Costume Institute Gala – The One’s I Missed


The Costume Institute Gala was bigger than the Oscars in terms of pictures, but I was determined to find Oluchi Onweagba, after Dominika was disappointed I didn’t feature her the first time around.

Dominka I promised you, if I’d found these pictures yesterday, I wouldn’t have left Oluchi out intentionally. Talk about goddess.

The gorgeous model is simply breath-taking in her black and white Oscar de la Renta Fall 2009 gown.

January Jones was also a golden girl wearing a Michael Kors metallic long sleeved shift dress.

I’m getting a early Sienna Miller hippy 60s chic vibe from this look.

Anna Friel goes way too short in a sassy lace strapless bustier dress, with strappy black sandals.

She’s a little too naked for this type of event imo.

Rosario Dawson wore a bubble-gum pink Diane von Furstenberg strapless ruched gown.

I love colour, but I’m not getting much va va voom from her, just like I didn’t get it from Eva Mendes.

Arriving on the arm of the designer herself, Elizabeth Banks looked fantastic in an Alberta Ferretti mini dress.

I love the cut with its plunging black sequined neckline, with the navy embellished skirt.

Short, sassy and sweet, that best describes Milla Jovovich as she arrived wearing a chartreuse mini Marni Fall 2009 dress, with an embroidered beaded neckline.

Taupe peep-toes from the same collection completed the look.

Hilary Swank wore a Calvin Klein burnt orange dress. What I like about this dress is the gathered details.

Hilary is such a blank canvas, you can give her almost anything and she would pull it off, so I would have preferred her in something a lot more interesting.

I still swoon when I think about her wearing that stunning Givenchy Couture lilac dress to Fashion Rocks last year.

Cheryl Tiegs looked outstanding and graceful wearing a midnight blue vintage Norman Norell sequined covered strapless gown.

Her accessories included vintage Neil Lane jewelr, and a vintage Judith Leiber minaudiere.

The legendary supermodel showed the new breed what style and class is all about.
